Tag Archives: Diorama

There’s nothing like a massive LEGO diorama to prove that you’ve arrived as a LEGO builder. The LEGO dioramas we feature here span everything from realistic medieval castles to scenes from World War II, and more than a few post-apocalyptic wastelands.

The Conquest of Lampsacus

The indomitable Mark Erickson has created yet another beautiful scene. I love the detailing on all of these buildings. Mark has done a great job of packing them with believable historical detail, making them all work together while still keeping each building unique. Not an easy job at all. My hat is off to you, sir!

Tintin Explores the Moon

As a child, I loved the Tintin Explorers on the Moon, I must have checked it out from the library dozens of times. I’ve seen many fantastic attempts at building the rocket Tintin and friends take to the moon, but this latest by Tyler Clites (Legohaulic) is the first build of the lunar tank I’ve seen. Simply put, this is awesome, this scene captures the right atmosphere, from the lunar surface to the brick-built Snowy under one of the domes.

Domestication, Contemplation, Relaxation

Flickr member simplybrickingit has created this intriguing triptych of household rooms. Each one is beautifully furnished but completely figure-less, and symbolizes a different aspect of our everyday lives. It’s all very Zen. I love the way the partial walls make these scenes feel somehow out of time.


 

And you thought your winter was rough.

It’s been a rough winter all around, though I am glad most of our snowy adventures do not involve storming a tall tower. Isaac S (soccersnyderi)’s little build is quite clever, and I do appreciate some of the techniques he used here. It definitely avoids being a boring tower, and I like the cold feel of the whole build.

Bravo!

Slowly fermented over a thousand years

It’s always fun when Star Wars fans augment the official canon with back stories of their own – and even more so when they illustrate them with LEGO. In the hefty build shown below, Daniel Stoeffler explains the origins of Sarlacc’s Nectar – the original Jawa juice – which is apparently extracted from [SPOILER ALERT!] the innards of Tattoine’s infamous Sarlacc.

Daniel even claims that [SPOILER ALERT!] Boba Fett used this futuristic moonshining operation as a way to escape from his close encounter with the Sarlacc. Read the whole story over at Eurobricks, or check out many detailed photos of this creation in the Flickr album (which at 66 photos may be a new record for a single MOC).
