Vorfechter Strike Fighter

Sometimes people (myself included) forget that there is no air in space… so why is it spaceships always have to be so streamlined and sleek? So it’s refreshing to see Nick Trotta’s (tardisblue) latest wonder of a star fighter. It’s big, it’s beefy, and frankly it’s #awesome with a capital #.

Vorfechter: Perspectives

The details are just jam packed. The techniques are phenomenal. There are things done on this fighter I have no clue how he did it… and I’m not the only one that is stumped with his build. Which is why Nick takes the unfathomably amazing step to teach us exactly how it’s done by posting a build video:

In-Depth Look at The LEGO Movie Closing Credits

How many of you saw the LEGO movie? All of you? Excellent. Did you hear they’re doing a sequel, due in 2017? That’s pretty fantastic news to me. I’d love to go back to that world.

Art of the Title gives a really insightful walk-through of the process creating the end-credits, with all of those excellent micro-scale worlds. If you need a reminder of how awesome it really is, their article has it for you to watch and pause whenever you’d like. The article doesn’t name any fans by name, though you may recognize a couple of builds, like Bruce Lowell‘s cow skull and hot dog.

Which of the end-credit builds was your favorite?
