David Frank (aka Fraslund) has been working on a medieval Castle layout for most of the last year and he finally unveiled it at BrickCon. His work was nothing short of breath-taking. The level of detail was stunning and I discovered incredible new details everytime I looked it over. David is definitely a builder to Continue reading →
LEGO Fabuland models on The Brothers Brick
Mark Larson is delving back into his Fabuland world with this den of dairy delights. I love the design of the house and how Mark managed to work in so many Fabuland elements but still kept it fresh and new. Well played, Mark!
The legend, according to Luke Watkins, is that poor Mary Jane was accused of witchcraft and thus disposed of in the usual manor. His creation features the homes near the site of the fire, complete with the townsfolk. The whole creation is just spot on, with the colors and the chaos. Edit (AB): So nice Continue reading →
Erik Smit shows how its done with this whimsical redeux of Gold Tooth’s Getaway. By the way, I really like the idea of this sort of challenge, specifically rebuilding a set in whatever fashion each builder prefers. I hope that more groups give this kind of thing a try.
I enjoy seeing genres and bandwagons being approached with a sort of irreverent creativity, so it was great to see this OTOMech Model TK-MM, built by Dave Sterling (half of ToT-LUG) for the 2009 MOClympics. It was inspired by the Otomen manga series and brainstorming with other LEGO fans, which is a great way to Continue reading →
This very striking scene by Erik Smit is really something. The white and transparent background pieces really set the stage for the purple highlights. I can’t stop staring at this scene.
Tranquility Base creator Louise Dade (Bladewood) has posted a Fabuland Danger Mouse, with Penfold and DM’s flying car. The Fabuland figures were customized by Louise’s mom Hilary. (Hat-tip to reader Tim.)
Mark Larson has instilled mass amounts of fear and trembling in me with his latest creation. The Terror and Suspense is just too much…I need to go lie down now. (Josh is going to have nightmares about the dreaded “Walrus Wedgie”)
There also a Racoon, a squirrel, and a wolf. This scene by SlyOwl is packed with fuzzy critters… In typical SlyOwl fashion, its also loaded with lots of other fun details too. The roof of that cabin and the grass overhangs on the clifftop are nice touches. But, of course, that is what we’ve come Continue reading →
From time to time we will be featuring interviews with administrators from different forums and fan sites that we think you should know about. We have a small backlog of interviews and will be posting them on a fairly regular basis, in no particular order. All featured sites will be Lego-related (duh) and are places Continue reading →
Jordan Schwartz‘s use of fabuland and scala figure parts are encroaching the bounds of ethics, creating mutants that many have commented as disturbing. Check out Toby the Piglet, Blizzard the Dragon, and Lederhosen Goat.
Jordan Schwartz has built an interesting scene, if pigs in speedos interest you. I wish I could erase it from my mind! But I had to check out the details in this weird little scene. The beach ball, the ducky float-tube, the towel on the sand. Excellent! Good job, Jordan, now I have even more Continue reading →
Jordan Schwartz is one of those builders we’d like to blog more often, but with new creations just about every day, we’re not quite ready to turn The Brothers Brick into the Sir Nadroj Show. ;-) Jordan’s latest is an adorable Fabuland scene (aren’t they all?) depicting a pair of Fabuland characters squaring off in Continue reading →
…gently down the stream to the Fabuland Riverbank. SlyOwl’s newest creation is an incredible piece of eye candy. From the flowing river to the autumnal tree, from the exotic cheeses to the lightup fireplace, this creation is bursting with whimsical details.
I don’t know if it’s true, but I’ve always credited Mark “Hinckley” Larson with starting the whole Fabuland trend way back when with his Fabuland Housewives series. Mark’s latest Fabuland creation features Brando Bulldog and his lovely house: See more on Flickr or BrickZone.net.
