Rob Damiano has been building an epic series of LEGO scenes telling the story of the NOVA team and their expedition to investigate rare biometric readings on a distant planet. I love his recent builds depicting an alien oasis, with a magnificent magenta hue. The builder added in the effects using Photoshop, and these effects really make the scenes shine.
Here, the NOVA team exits the R-RAV to explore the oasis. The usage of red tree leaves and trans-purple parts on the ground are the perfect accent to the magenta haze. The fantastic minifigures were designed by the builder and custom printed in a very small quantity.
Have you ever wondered where Neo-Classic Space minifigures come from? Well, Wami Delthorn has captured a certain Dr. Clarke at work, creating what I can only assume is the next generation of Neo-Classic Space crew members. Most of the NCS LEGO creations we feature here are spaceships in the the usual combination of blue and gray, with the requisite pops of red and yellow. But this interior scene fits right into that aesthetic, with masses of greebles on every surface, illuminated by some excellent lighting.
For those who require a spaceship in their NCS posts, here’s Wami’s LL-527 Rapier fighter (in lovely blue and gray, with pops of red and yellow).
It doesn’t take a hardcore Whovian to appreciate this awesome LEGO TARDIS interior by AdNorrel. The builder says he was inspired after watching the episode Journey to the Center of the TARDIS. This build isn’t based on any specific room inside the TARDIS — it’s the builder’s own design — and it captures the Doctor Who aesthetic perfectly.
I love the use of the gold wings and crystal pieces on the detailing of the crystal holder, and the Hero Factory drums as crystals. However, the real star of the show is the floor. It seems simple at first glance, but close inspection reveals an intricate design of gears and Technic parts, giving the impression that the gears of time are turning beneath the mythical crystal.
The photography is wonderful as well, be sure to click through to the builder’s photostream to see more beautiful shots!
Builder Didier Burtin shows that your LEGO bricks causing great foot pain was their devious plan the whole time, with his brick-built interpretation of the meme. Didier’s build is my favorite of all the physically built versions I’ve seen, especially with the shape of the foot in the diagram.
Tread carefully. These bricks are most painful when you least expect them.
A magical place is how Jonas Kramm describes this serene little home tucked under a tree. What’s interesting is how there’s a particular element that belongs to the LEGO Duplo family that’s part of this build. If you’ve not spotted it yet, it’s the green grass element that forms the roof of the home. I wonder what beings live in this fairy tale wonderland — earth fairies, or ground trolls, or was it the home of Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy? I’ve got my eyes on that hole in the tree trunk, just waiting to see what pops out of the curious-looking land.
Speedyhead recreated the destruction of Princess Leia’s home planet of Alderaan, a classic Star Wars scene, with LEGO. The lighting effect on the laser and forced perspective planet is stunning. The detailed Imperial architecture shouldn’t be overlooked though; the texture of the window and separation of floor panels are on point.
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!
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!
I love the clean futuristic look of this scene by Wami Delthorn, contrasted with the dreary everyday chore of vacuuming the floor. The subtle textures in the floor and the walls make otherwise boring flat surfaces far more interesting than they have any right to be.
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.
Masterful storyteller Bart De Dobbelaer shares another otherworldly scene with us in this mysterious diorama. As much as I enjoy Bart’s episodic stories, the lack of backstory here is somewhat nice as well, leaving the viewer to fill in the blanks for themselves.
While the mech in the foreground might be the focus of this latest scene from Nooreuyed, the dense foliage and vibrant greenery of the jungle background is the real star here. The action isn’t lacking either, with muzzle flashes and splashing water all combining to really bring this scene to life.
