This sculpture of the Fell Beast by captainsmog captured the ferocity of this menacing creature from The Lord of the Rings. Having the creature pose on the sharp rock formation gave the model a much more dynamic appearance.
Kingmarshy says that his Mechua was betrayed by his brother in battle, cursing him. His flesh now being consumed, transforming him into a living machine. All I have to say is that I would NOT want to be his brother, because Mechua is apparently wandering the oceans looking for vengeance.
Watch your back Mr. Mechua’s brother!
French fan Théo‘s latest model depicts a terrifying past filled with adventurous biologists, mighty dragons, and a fair bit of Steampunkery.
I thought the adorable love llamas we blogged a couple weeks ago looked a bit like alpacas, but who am I to split the hairs of a South American camelid? Still, this lovely llama by Delta (itself inspired by delayice’s pair) has a certain fuzz factor thanks to the studs-out construction that I can appreciate.
I think it’s rather trite to say that something “doesn’t look like LEGO” — it’s a lazy statement and plays into the non-building public’s perception that “LEGO these days” is “overly specialized” and “doesn’t foster creativity.” Also, we try not to feature the same model twice.
Nonsense, all of it. Just look at this amazing dragon built by aurore&aube.
This new version includes much-improved horns, and arms posed as if the dragon were about to leap into the air.
Of course, Chris Maddison is certainly holding his own against Bruce Lowell! This aquarium features a delightful crab, as well as realistic details like the water aerator/purifier unit thingy on the tank.
Nick Sweetman (MinifigNick) followed advice from his 9 year old son to use the tower roof piece from the Harry Potter sets as the head of a dragon. It just so happens that the roof tile texture mimics the dragon’s scales and the exposed studs are right at where the dragon’s eyes should be – a classic example of NPU!
Gorgon heads are traditionally pretty fantastic weapons for defeating mythological monsters, but they do have their drawbacks: namely, you’ve got to keep your eyes shut, so you’re never quite sure you’re pointed the right direction, as this lovely little vignette by workshysteve demonstrates.
