While my own eyes are pulled more to the tugboat, Schfio‘s “LEGO x Rubber Duck Project” is clearly all about the duck. And you can’t argue with Sesame Street.
LEGO Sculpture models on The Brothers Brick
It’s hard to define which LEGO models are sculptural and which are just a regular pile of bricks, but we know a good sculpture when we see one — even if it’s a funny cartoon character and not the Venus de Milo.
We blogged Russian builder Vasil Vasil’s (Silvavasil) cool LEGO bicycle last month, but now he’s back with a super cool old-school motorcycle. I love how it looks like a transparent human anatomy model, with all the organs and veins showing in different colors.
It would seem that Matt Bace (mmbace) and I think along similar lines. Just yesterday I was looking up images for the tin soldiers from the Nutcracker Ballet. Today I spotted this fantastic likeness in my Flickr stream.
Ekoww would like to introduce you to “Junior“, the latest additon to his Folklore, Myth and Superstition series. Although the face may be something that only a mother can love, the sculptural talent of the builder is undeniable.
Nick Barrett built a Lego version of a local sculpture in Newbury, Berkshire, UK. All the hinges, SNOT, and single stud connections must make this a fragile model, but at least it very well mimics the source.
Happy Easter, folks. Here’s a cheery Easter Bunny for you, courtesy of flickr user Brickbucki. This is a great sculpture, though I can’t help but think the rabbit looks slightly crazed. But I guess that’s what comes from having to paint and hide millions of eggs.
“What’s this fine looking man doing on the front page of The Brothers Brick?” you say. “He doesn’t look like Lego!” Well, no, Bruce Lowell isn’t made of Lego, though we do suspect liquified ABS runs in his veins. His accoutrements are, however, made of Lego. Look closely, and you’ll see that the tie, tie Continue reading →
Tim had previously featured Moko’s High School girl sculpture, but I had to post an update after running across the latest variant. I amazed by the amount of textural detail achieved with the clothing by using relatively simple bricks alone. Check out more on Moko’s blog
Moko has, in my not entirely humble opinion, dominated the world of competitive LEGO sculptural figure making. Which is, to say, that he does them well, and this one is no exception. I’m pretty sure this one needs a “kawaii!”.
Schfio made them and they are too adorable for words. Tama and Friends is Japanese Anime series that originally ran in 1994.
One benefit of getting together with other LEGO fans at local club meetings is that you get to hear the thought process that goes into their LEGO models. Shawn Snyder (Flickr) has been building fantastic character sculptures for years — remember his amazing Predator bust? — and lately he’s been bringing his figures to SEALUG Continue reading →
Dwalin and Balin are probably my two favorite dwarves from The Hobbit and Pate-keetongu recreated them perfectly. There is a plethora of cool details in both figures but the pattern on Balin’s shirt is incredible.
This latest Iron Builder contest has provided an incredible slew of fascinating models from the uuber talented contestants. Sean and Steph Mayo pull out all the stops with this monstrous sushi roll fit for a giant. And Bart De Dobbelaer fires back with this super cool Monolith. I don’t even pretend to know what’s going Continue reading →
Hailing from Wageningen, the Netherlands own Paul Toxopeus is on a mission to recreate the now defunct Dutch theme park Het Land van Ooit in LEGO. Paul’s latest effort is simply titled “Three Sculptures” but nothing about these models is simple. The one on the right reminds me of Madame Trash-heap from Fraggle Rock: your Continue reading →
TFOL Joshua Christenson from Washington State finds inspiration from the classic board game Monopoly and its mascott Rich Uncle Pennybags. Based on a characature of financier and banker J. P. Morgan, Pennybags beckons you for another rousing game of bankrupting your opponents. Joshua has been on a roll with his scuptures lately and is clearly Continue reading →
