With our announcement of Numereji 2421, it’s clear the convention season is upon us, but the collaborative display that we’re organizing is hardly the only group build at BrickCon this fall. Iain Heath has just announced PythonScape, a Miniland-scale homage to the wonder and beauty of Monty Python.
I’ve already called dibs on the Black Knight, but there are still plenty of funny characters and scenes open for contributions. Following the success of Bricks of Character, I’m sure this is going to be awesome.
Bricks by the Bay and the steampunk Nova Albion exhibition happened at the same time and the same place last month, so Iain Heath (Ochre Jelly) and Guy Himber (V&A Steamworks) took advantage of this massive convergence of geekiness to dress for the occasion. Naturally, Iain followed that up with LEGO versions of himself and the inimitable Mr. Himber.
Bravo, sirs, bravo.
This time last year we were collectively preparing to worship LEGO Hawking, courtesy of Iain Heath. Now, the venerable Mr. Hawking is nothing but a prisoner of those damn dirty apes. I don’t trust Iain with my heroes of character anymore.
What’s next, Iain? Will you turn Quorra into a Justin Bieber fan? Will you, yourself, abandon miniland creations for minifig scale?
I just can’t take it anymore.
Ezra B. has shared this nightmare, and now I pass it along. Sleep well tonight…
Tommy Williamson, I salute you. These Miniland figures from Pirates of the Caribbean include an amazing level of detail. Jack Sparrow is nice, but Captain Barbossa is awesome.
LUGNUTS is currently running an interesting monthly challenge and Peter Blackert (lego911) has more than risen to it. His ’55 Chevreolet Cameo appears to have all the little details just in the right spot. I’m sure Don McLean would appreciate it.
And while my interest in vehicles waxes and wanes, Peter Blackert (lego911) brings us an extremely steady supply of cars. But I don’t think I’ve seen him make the same car at four scales before. My own bias shows through in my love for his tiniest Bugatti Veyron 16.4.
Peter Blackert (lego911) builds fantastic vehicles out of brick. This is simply a fact. His latest creation brings us back to the Roarin’ 20s with a brilliantly executed Ford Model A (1927) Deluxe Coupe ‘Grandfather’ design. More photos, including his mini-land scale Grandma and Grandpa, are found in his USA Holiday 2010 set.
It’s no secret I love pre-WWI cars so Peter Blackert (lego911) was always going to please me with this one. But his pleasing went beyond what it could have been due to his excellent modelling. A fabulous demonstration of what can be done at this larger than minifig scale.
Alexander Alekseev just posted this farmer and I was stuck by the simplicity. This scene is just about perfect, so I’ll bow out and I’ll let it speak for itself.
