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.
I may not be a tea-person (Hey. I’m from Seattle. Coffee all the way.), but I must say, Aaron’s Tea House is just far too inviting. I’m aware there’s some tension outside the building, but I just keep going back to the architecture. Lovely!
I’d say this would look fetching in the BrickCon Big in Japan display, yes?
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?
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.
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.
And his kicks will split you in half. Mark Kelso (Amhakia) made this vignette using lots of brilliant techniques and 100% unmodified Lego parts. Did you know that stickers can be used to connect pieces? Find out how he used them and more in the descriptions!
Rod Gillies (2 Much Caffeine) applies his skills to medieval Japan with his latest creation, “The General is summoned to war”.
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.
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.
I built this diorama with Donut, whom you may remember from our April Fools mock interview. Donut is actually a real person who’s indeed active online at Classic Castle and Eurobricks forums. I hope you enjoy our little project called The Last Samurai.
You can read the poem associated with the creation here.
From beetles to snails, we’ve enjoyed the encounters that Geppelin‘s minifigs have had with animals over the years, but none are cuter than this kitten meeting a ninja.
Thanks for the link, little bro! Hope I didn’t make Tsunami too jealous.
Moko‘s latest mecha combines two things that we all know are awesome: ninjas and robots. Black and silver with gold accents, the ninja mecha can seat a minifig — a masked mystery man whose identity remains unknown.
