Sm 01 has turned out this awesome Model T Hot Rod. Not only is a beauty but it’s motorized as well. Check out the video for all the features.
BrickArms has released a new selection of weapons and all of their US-based resellers will have them in stock in time for Black Friday. All other resellers will have them very soon, if they don’t already.
BrickWarriors has just done a big restock of some of their most popular merchandise and is offering a nice discount as well. On top of that, for the rest of the month, 5% of all sales will be donated to Toys for Tots!
Brickforge, well-known for their custom minifig parts and accessories, is running a clearance sale where each item is under 30 cents. There is quite a nice selection and if you don’t see what you are looking for, then check back later. This is an ongoing event with different items being discounted every two weeks. Also any orders 15 dollars or over will receive a free ‘splat pack’!
I just picked up a Claymore Crate from GI Bricks to review and Julie sent me the other two packs as well. All of these packs come with a BrickArms crate with special printing and four BrickArms weapons painted by Brick Mercenaries. They are available exclusively from GI Bricks.
This pack comes in a brown BrickArms crate with a splash of red blood printed on one side. The printing is very nicely done, as we have come to expect from BrickArms. The crate itself would actually be quite useful in a battle scene, perhaps with a slain minifig leaning against it. The pack includes a Claymore, Damien Blade, Havoc Blade and Killstrike Saber. What makes these weapons really special is the paint job by Josh Baum of Brick Mercenaries. The paint looks professionally done and he was able to recreate an accurate representation of blood-soaked weapons, rather than randomly applying red paint, as is so often done. The paint also feels very durable. On the GI Bricks website, it says that these are for display purposes only, but I think they would stand up to light play. They will get scratched up if left in a bin with other weapons, but normal handling isn’t going to affect them.
Ryan Hauge, of BrickWarriors, just posted this fun little scene of an assassin training their apprentice. The timbered roof is cool and the crazy green flames in the fire make me smile, but the archways over the doors and fireplace really make this standout. I also have to mention that four-poster bed. The finials on the bedposts? BrickWarriors’ Magic Wands. Nice touch.
Ryan told me that this is a scene from his new book, now available on Amazon, also called “Riddle of Regicide (Pentavia Book 1)“.
Here is a build that we missed from earlier in the year. Hammerstein NWC is a force to be reckoned with and this “Kromikoma” is some of his best work. All the custom “shiny” makes me jealous.
I’m surprised both our Canadian contributors passed this up, but I’ll use my 1/4 Canadian heritage as an excuse to highlight this awesome custom minifigure by Kristi (customBRICKS), based on a friend’s Halloween costume.
Kristi calls him Captain Cold, though I think Captain Canada might be more correct. Either way, he’s pretty awesome.
If you’re curious to see what other comic book characters look like in the style of Lego’s Hulk, then The Brick Creator has just what you’re looking for with their 3″ Hulk-sized “EPICFIG” figures. Shown below are Rhino, Venom, Hulkbuster Armor, Colossus, and Juggernaut. Check out Flickr for more photos on how they’re made and visit their Facebook page for details on how to purchase them.
