TBB regular Letranger Absurde brings us this gorgeous brick-built still life scene entitled Emerald Hourglass. Sharp-eyed readers may notice a wealth of NPU (“Nice Part Usage”) such as a flag, mini-fig hair, screwdriver, gold rings, grill bricks, ball joints and Airjitzu canopies.
Historically rats have a pretty bad rap, what with the Black Death and that whole “sinking ship” thing. But I can tell you from personal experience they actually make really fun pets, even for kids (…and they’re short-lived, nudge, wink). Just don’t google “fecal pellets” if you’re on the fence about getting one. They’re even cute in LEGO form, as MOCPages user TheActionFigure demonstrates with this amazingly lifelike scale model of the common rat:
While it may look like some kind of extreme ballet, or very unusual form of back therapy, wrestling fans may recognize this move – expertly recreated in LEGO by simplybrickingit – as the suplex. But can you tell which of the 50+ variants it is? Or what happens next? (…without looking at the script?)
It’s always nice when you can mix business and pleasure… Canadian anesthesiologist and LEGO fan Lucie Filteau spends much of her time next to a GE Aisys C2 anesthesia machine, so she decided to build a LEGO version of it to raffle off at a recent fundraiser. You can compare it to the real thing, and even see it in action – LEGO style!
Kiwi builder David Hensel (who appropriately goes by the handle Legonardo Davidy) describes his take on the Vitruvian Minifig idea as a “study in mosaic making, SNOT, minifigure proportion, and endurance – and lots of tan cheese”. And the fact that David has been noodling on this mind-boggling mosaic on-and-off for two years comes as no surprise! I’m sure the Master himself would be impressed…
The train is simply adorable and it hides a neat feature: it also serves as a piggy bank. I do have some doubts whether it can actually keep your money safe, however, no matter how strong the clutch between LEGO elements may be.
Vitreolum felt compelled to build this. You have to admit, it’s a really good build. The face is especially well-done. Too bad it’s Jar-Jar’s face.
Perhaps I am using the word character a bit too frequently to describe models lately, but the parrot built by Dicky Laban has it in spades. It doesn’t just want a cracker; it needs one. It looks so sad and yet adorable.
This is also yet another nice example of how you don’t need to build something ridiculously large for it to be cool and interesting, as long as it has mixels eyes.
