How to make LEGO mashed potatoes

Mashed potatoes are awfully tasty, aren’t they? Or diced, fried potatoes. Or baked potatoes. Really, potatoes any way I could have them are awfully tasty. That doesn’t seem to be good news for our friend on the cutting board, does it?

TBB staple Barney Main gives us a delightful scene, preparing potatoes for their delicious end. Though I don’t think our appreciation is shared by the subject on the cutting board, if those large eyes and worried face are any indicator.

While you ponder the potato’s fate, check out the other details: the skin peeler, the book, the knife, and the gas stove top. The potato masher is particularly ingenious!


Get abs like bricks

Looks like someone is still trying to fulfil their new year’s resolution. Kosbrick has created a perfect brick-built gym scene for his current Iron Builder contest, and the use of the paint roller handle is genius.


On his blog, Kos explains the build was a reminder of official modular builds, and I’ve got to say it does. It also reminds me that I do have to hit the gym really soon!

Fee, Fi, Fo, Fum

Brother Steven artfully captures the moment a home intruder breaks in and steals the owner’s valuables, before subsequently escaping and murdering the wronged homeowner. I never quite got the moral of that story.

I particularly like the expression on the giant’s face in the picture above, but be sure to check out the full shot for the fantastic details.

A Nighthawk by any other name

eldeem brings you a diorama inspired by the 1942 painting Nighthawks by Edward Hopper. The scene is the culminating installment of the builder’s “Hawks in the Night” series, which features some very effective camera work.

Hawks in the Night: Part Fouuur

If you’re a fan of the painting, you might have missed Alex Eylar’s Nighthawks of the Living Dead, featured on this august blog back in 2010.
