A Warrior Born

I admit…I don’t look at a lot of custom minifigures. But there are, on occasion, those that give me pause. This is one of them:

Created by geoshift, the detail work is impressive and the paint itself is very clean. It’s stunning. Of course, looking at the rest of the photostream, I realize I’ve clearly been missing out. Take a look. You won’t regret it.

One man LEGO ninja weapon museum

Aaron Dayman (Aaron :-)) has raised the stakes in the classic-castle medieval weapon challenge with this entry. Aaron’s arsenal of of ninja weapons includes nunchaku, shuriken, caltrops, tekagi, fukiya and smoke bombs.

I’m really looking forward to seeing these in the Big in Japan display at BrickCon 2010. Maybe we should put together an entire brick built weapon museum?

Katsumoto

This samurai is astounding. The plethora of unusual pieces meshes perfectly together. Genius, I say. Pure Genius. You can color me a fan of the builder. His name is Cameron, by the way.

Lego Samurai Japan

And, yes, this is the type of thing we would love to see in the Big In Japan layout at BrickCon this year.

Thanks to Bruce for pointing this out to me.

The General in his Pavilion

Rod Gillies (2 Much Caffeine) applies his skills to medieval Japan with his latest creation, “The General is summoned to war”.

LEGO samurai general's pavilion

The stone wall has a great texture, and the green roof isn’t something you see that often in LEGO samurai/ninja creations (though they certainly exist in real life). My favorite detail is the fountain.

Samurai mecha slices off heads with honor

The latest creation from Moko is dressed in samurai mecha armor and wields twin energy katanas. That’s enough to spell awesome, but there are some worthwhile details to note such as the use of tiered tiles and cheese slopes to imitate the jagged samurai armor. And as with pictures involving chrome radar dishes, you get a bonus image of the photographer.
