Here’s a great Hobbit diorama for you. This scene by Legopard depicts the tricky situation Thorin’s company find themselves in, as they’re backed to the edge of a precipice before being rescued by eagles, which is also the subject of the official set Attack of the Wargs. Legopard’s eagle is a true standout here, with Continue reading →

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.
I’ve really come to enjoy building in microscale, especially for space models. I can build large scenes that actually fit on my desk, like my latest foray into microscale, this asteroid mining colony.
TFOL Mitchell Pollard [MIXBRIX] brings his vision of the apocalypse to life with this immersive scene of turmoil. Typically scenes in this genre leave me cold and amount to little more than minifigs standing around with brickarmz prototypes, but this diorama is a cut above. Enjoy the many textures of the ruin.
Jon Blackford has made this fantastic diorama illustrating what might happen to an unfortunate Neo-Classic-Space landing party. He’s got a great style going on here with the limited colors and the nifty shaping of the rock platform.
Simon Pickard finished his massive scene of the Battle of Thermopylae that spans over 5 feet and features over 500 minifigures. Read more about this incredible 2-year long project on Flickr, and you can browse the work in progress shots on Flickr as well.
Military builder Andreas proudly presents: “At the Edge of the Future”, a diorama that showcases the nice lines of his M3A1 “Atlanta” Main Battle Tank. Andreas has some crazy rhetoric about America annexing Canada, but I will leave the fine print for your careful inspection. If you have the time, take a look at his Continue reading →
Husband and wife team Sean and Steph Mayo are known for being among the craziest builders out there, churning out stunning models at an unbelievable pace. Their latest work, built for the on-going Iron Builder contest (where they’re up against stiff competition, even for them!) is a mind-blowing coral reef, all decked out in the Continue reading →
Photographing very large LEGO models can be a real challenge. I’d bookmarked this gorgeous diorama by Gabriel Thomson (qi_tah) when he first posted it last week, but wasn’t sure I’d blog it because the lighting was a bit dark, and he’d been forced to use a sheet for the backdrop that didn’t completely cover the Continue reading →
London resident -Derfel Cadarn- has “Big plans for 2013!” and this model is Chapter 1 in his master-plan to steer away from the conventions and boilerplate of the Castle genre. If Cobblecrook Cottage is any indication of things to come, its going to be a great year for a new kind of medieval groove.
A new style of collaboration was introduced to the Flickr Lego community when a group of builders (myself included) simultaneously posted creations depicting a tribe of polar bear warriors. Check out our creations on the Flickr group and learn how to build your own polar bear.
We’re going to hold off posting new LEGO models this weekend as we celebrate the life of Mike Crowley, who passed away on Tuesday in Boston. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy selections from Mike’s prolific and brilliant LEGO output. Mike’s Sesame Street diorama doesn’t just feature really wonderful, brick-built renditions of the iconic Continue reading →
Although many fans of the X-Men can’t abide 2009′s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, I have a special fondness for the film. When I was layed up in the hospital for a week it played every 6 hours or so on the limited selection of cable TV channels, so I got to know the film quite well. Continue reading →
69Zombieslayer puts the enduringly popular Hazmat minifigures to good use in this cinematic style wide-screen shot. In his terse description the builder asks you to imagine The A Team theme music in the background, but when I look at the photo all I hear is The Tower that Ate People. Your results may vary.
J.R.R. Tolkein’s own artwork for The Hobbit shows many different hobbit holes in Hobbiton, but it’s rare to see anything other than Bilbo’s green-doored Bag End. So, it’s quite a nice change to see this gorgeous, different slice of Hobbiton by Brick Vader. I love the way the shape of the diorama’s base reflects the Continue reading →
Elliott Feldman‘s diorama is an example of the unhindered mind at work. At first glance I passed this MOC as another castle creation, but the builder reminded me to take another look, which quickly revealed subjects from different themes mashed into the diorama. It even features a spoof on Super Mario and Halo. Take a Continue reading →
