How do you follow something as amazing as Rivendell? Well, Mike Nieves (Retinence) may have used fewer bricks in this version of Rapidash from Pokemon, but he’s mastered them well. Mike is a long-time adept at creating organic curves with LEGO, and the rippling muscles and mane of this creation prove it.
I don’t think a sadistic little boy would want to pull the wings off of this bug. He just may get a missile or a laser bolt up his jacksie if he tried.
If this sort of thing is what floats your boat, you better head on over to rongYIREN’s photostream because it is overflowing with goodies like this.
Andrew Lee shows us how ingenious parts usage is to be done. I certainly would have never looked at forks and hand-mixers and thought, “Self, I should build the caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland!”
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.
