While it was definitely the humour that caught my eye (not to mention the cute little frog), there are actually a lot of fantastic build techniques he’s used in the bot itself. From the brilliantly illegal shoulder joint connections, to the marvelous finger connection – this bot just fantastic.
The drone bandwagon keeps rolling, with the past week seeing a number of particularly nice examples of the genre.
Paul Meissner (legosamurai) pays homage to the artist that launched a thousand drones with this superbly accurate reproduction of a well-known piece of concept art by StTheo. And be sure to check out the rugged tactical variant, too.
Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another round of Friday Night Fights! Tonight we’re recapping the best of Marchikoma – the yearly think-tank build month. Let’s go to the tale of the tape.
Yes you read that right, Cole vs Blaq, in the first and probably only FNF self contest – Despite my best effort, Cole Blaq’s efforts last month was jaw dropping good. And of course if you missed any Koma’s – you can see an overview of all the builds here.
As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding the outcome of this bout by way of comment. On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, Micro GARCs, Jacob wins the race 8-5 ! Tune in next week for another action packed edition of Friday Night Fights!
Galaktek brings us a whimsical creation that looks like it would be right at home in The Lego Movie. It looks completely ridiculous and over the top for garbage collection, which is part of what makes it so great. Watch out for those dumpster claws!
Thanks to : Volume X :, I’ll be thinking of blue Monday in a positive light from here on out. This think tank looks very cool, with great details and shaping throughout. The builder has made especially good use of xpod lids and cement mixer drums. The sticker usage is also superb, adding just the right touches of detail.
Yes, we like Mechs on The Brothers Brick, and I know we just posted some great ones just a few days ago, but this Heavy Loading Mech by Evan (LegoJunkie) is just too cool to pass up:
Set in the far future where Mega-corporations run rampant and these monster mechs are necessary to stock shelves. While Evan brings us a really unique mech and background story, but what makes this go from cool to LEGO-Movie-Awesome are the pneumatic functions he puts in:
Using parts in colors that have never been available toes the line of what I consider cheating, but there’s no question that the results are stunning. I’m particularly fond of these two fearsome builds from the Warhammer 40k universe.
This pair of mechs by Simmon Kim had me question if what I was seeing was indeed made out of Lego. The builder’s use of custom decals elevates these models to a new level of realism, giving them the quality of seemingly coming from a model kit.
