Arkov continues his series of Orange Box LEGO creations with Dog from Half-Life 2: Why yes, it is Miniland scale.
Paul Lee and his son entered their local LEGO Store’s monthly Minibuild contest back in September, and recently learned that their entry has just won the national contest, and will be featured as this coming September’s monthly model.

Since I wasn’t around when the mid-80′s cartoon Rainbow Brite debuted, I’ll assume the ignorant blogger in writing this post. For those who are old enough to have watched the show back in the day, these figures by Dave Sterling should evoke a pleasant trip down memory lane, one which you can relive over and Continue reading →
I just heard that they’re recruiting for a model builder for the new LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Manchester, UK. It could be a pretty cool opportunity for someone among our UK readership. Here’s the word: DO YOU HAVE THE BRICK FACTOR? SEE YOUR MODELS IMMORTALISED FOREVER IN LEGO OPEN auditions are being held at The Continue reading →
Atomic Pop is my favorite toy/comic book store in Baltimore, and Atomic Punk is now my favorite hot rod. Nathan Proudlove (Proudlove) did a great job rendering this car in LEGO form. Ok, so perhaps I’m a sucker for anything with a bubble dome, sue me.
