UCS LEGO Planet Express Ship from Futurama

Good news, everyone! Remember all those times you desperately needed a LEGO spaceship fast enough to outrun a murderous Robot Santa Claus? Or what about those times you justed wanted to deliver a LEGO pizza in a stylish vehicle with a sweet “electric mucus” paint job? Well, you’re in luck because Nicola Stocchi, builder of the incredibly detailed Transformer Grimlock has created a beautifully rendered version of the Planet Express Ship from Futurama. Nicola built this beauty in LEGO Digital Designer with 5112 parts. Seriously, could this LEGO ship be any more spot on? At the risk of sounding negative, no.

Bender: Bite my shiny LEGO ass.

Good news everyone!
Adrian Drake (BrickFrenzy) is back with another MEGA awesome build for Brickworld this year. This time, it’s a life-sized Bender from Futurama:

At 6 feet tall (including antenna) and built with approximately 20,000 pieces – it may surprise you that this build only took about Adrian a month to build. I think this was the single most photographed build at Brickworld, and earned Adrian the Judge’s Choice Award and nomination for Best Mega Creation.

Of course no life sized bender would be complete without a functional chest cavity (featuring one of Brickworld’s finest traditional drinks).

As a huge Futurama fan, I couldn’t help but get caught up in life-sized-Bender Fever, and decided to build Nixon’s head (minus jar) to put on Bender’s body (ARROOOOO!).

Oh and Adrian totally trusted me enough to let me put on Bender’s Head.

A special thanks to Adam Myers for letting me build Nixon from his collection in Chicago, and for loaning out Nixon head to Adrian to display at BrickFair VA.
