Nick V (Brickthing) takes us to the improv night at what I can only assume is a club near Monsters U, with a legged snake-monster telling hiss-terical jokes. The puns may be atrociousssss but Nick’s use of a Bionicle mask as hair is killer.
Bad puns aside, Dave Foreman has proven that a sufficiently talented builder can make a fantastic-looking creature out of almost any pieces. Using the notoriously disliked BURPs (Big Ugly Rock Pieces) and LURPs (Little Ugly Rock Pieces), Dave creates this astounding rock monster that is what we all wish the Rock Raider’s Rock Monster or this set had looked like. The best part is that Dave says this is only a practice run before he builds a better version with a full scene.
In an earlier time, when microscale dinosaurs roamed as kings of the earth, and prehistoric cave Steves hunted for their survival, a benevolent overlord sculpted the land: Monsterbrick.
The wee sabre-toothed tiger is my favorite, but those mini pterodactyls are just genius.
Yes, I realize that today is Tuesday, but yesterday was Thanksgiving here in Canada, so today is my ‘Monday’. I also know that really doesn’t make sense, nor does it really have anything to do with the following creations…well actually I suppose it kind of is relevant because these don’t really make much sense either. But they did make me chuckle on this rainy Monday morning.

This scene by Luke Watkins Hutchinson (Derfel Cadarn) seems like a slice of someone’s nightmare. Check out the use of the judge’s hairpiece on the face of the ghoul.
This Bionicle bug by Monsterbrick is as terrifying picture of what will haunt the ruins of humanity after the apocalypse. This build is a perfect example of how much can be accomplished with just a few pieces–I doubt there are more than 35 pieces in this model, yet it’s strikingly well crafted.
February 29, 2020. Anchorage. Knifehead. Category III.
This is the beast that took down the Gipsy Danger. This is the Kaiju that demonstrated that they were learning our defenses. This was the battle of the beginning of the end for the Jaeger program. And it is magnificent.
OliveSeon brings us this brilliant brick-built beast from Pacific Rim, in all its glory. I can’t wait to see what else she has planned!
Sean and Steph Mayo have cranked their building skills to overdrive to bring us two back-to-back creations featuring real fire and water. The first is a spinning flame sculpture called Green Fire Tornado, and the second is a beautiful terrarium with a working waterfall. There are no limits to what can be built with Lego when these two are at work.
…comes this ferocious creature by LukeClarenceVan. Unlike many of the sea monsters made in Lego, this one doesn’t have tentacles and its head has features resembling a dragon. I like the scales and the touch of olive green.
Just a few days ago, I highlighted the freaky Joker mech blasting through Gotham, and I noted that more dioramas by these collaborators were in the works. Here’s the next, by 6kyubi6. It’s a crazy scene of downtown mayhem as the sewers unleash a truly gigantic mutant Croc. A plethora of superheroes and even a few other villains dot the landscape as the city sustains its fair share of collateral damage. Both scenes will be on display at Briqu’Expo 2013 in Diemoz, France, next month.
