With a catalog of outstanding aircraft and sci-fi models dating back to 2008 on Flickr, I was surprised to find that TBB has never featured Italian builder Simone (Wiseman_Lego). In an effort to make up for lost time, enjoy this double shot of excellence. First up is a Simone’s recent build the “Fighter prototype“. I Continue reading →

From giant space carriers to starfighters, moon bases to moon buggies, whether you love LEGO models inspired by real-world space programs or science-fiction, you’re in the right place.
Polish builder Jarek brings us this completely crazy and awesome trio of bio-mechanical exoskeletal creatures. He says he built them off-the-cuff as a break from another model, but you’d never be able to tell, since they’re packed with fantastic details and clever techniques.
There’s often a glut of fairly similar (though often awesome) starfighters each year during Novvember, so it’s nice to see a great fighter outside that box. Nathan DeCastro brings us this excellent “T-6 Iron Venom” with beefy engines and formidable armaments. The “Iron Venom” is a variation on Nate’s contribution to the Starfighter Telephone Game, Continue reading →
Sometimes, a creation just jumps out at me as an ideal contribution to a theme. This ship by Chris (ironsniper), is an example of just such a creation. The color scheme is sharp, and has the right among of pop. The shape has tons of compound angles, curves, and even protrusions, it’s just lovely.
Most of the mechs we see are hard, utilitarian machines bristling with guns and rocket launchers and big steel panels. Which is cool, to be sure, but sometimes it’s refreshing to see a different take. This gorgeous mech by Legorobo is wonderfully organic, and armed with one of the coolest looking battleaxes I’ve ever seen.
Mihai Marius Mihu (mihaimariusmihu) creates a truly unique scene that portrays an alien terraforming structure and dilapidated building. I have to say that the thought of alien spores turning me into alien bio-matter in order to be harvested and turned into a hovercraft is mildly creepy while at the same time pretty neat. Yay science! Continue reading →
Last year, I wrote about how collaborating with others can really help a LEGO model shine. As TR wrote yesterday, there’s a wonderful community of LEGO builders who help and support each other (even when we argue), and we’re all better for each other’s company. This beautifully shaped and colorful microscale destroyer dubbed HMS Arizona Continue reading →
Stijn (Red Spacecat) takes his MATSF-5000E Super Banshee (one of his oldest models on flickr) and gives it a fresh spin by adding mission specific equipment packs. I am a HUGE fan of modular equipment/weapon systems so these latest upgrades are right up my alley. But whether it be weapons packs or colour variations, it Continue reading →
Seeing Rodney Bistline’s (Buster) Falcon-Hawk Strike Eagle was like seeing a snap shot of a starfighter that I have dreamt of building for ages. It is literally a carbon copy of a fighter I have pictured in my head countless times. The textural details, bright colour blocks, and 80′s sci-fi charm, makes for a quirky Continue reading →
This little ship by Mack Crawford caught my eye this morning. In particular, the white parts creating a subtly different curved area in the center. The color scheme is one that’s new to me, and I think it looks good. With better lighting for the photo, I suspect the colors might even pop a bit.
Adrian Florea clearly wields a protractor like a geometric Jedi. The varying angles and protruding shapes, coupled with the masterfully complex colour blocking, make his GARC – CopII a very interesting ship to look at. The background story is also good for a chuckle…
I first saw Paul Meissner’s (legosamurai) creation in person at our most recent LUGOLA meeting. While I am flattered that he credits my Daedalus Drop Suit as an inspiration, his Emilia Starboarder is so much more elegant and downright sexy in comparison. He cleverly incorporates a Belville doll head and uses Prince of Persia claw Continue reading →
Jubal Scharold (Sir Darc) has turned out a ship that really looks like a mover, The Blue Fury! Those beefy-looking thrusters give this a definite hot-rod feel. I’m also loving how the builder used the stacked, trans-blue radar dishes as an integral part in the engines themselves. Add to that some subtle angle changes and Continue reading →
Nick Trotta or tardisblue if you prefer, returns with another stunning spacecraft called the “Tempest mk.Blue”. The color scheme will draw you in, but you’ll stay for the fine details. Nick also recorded a construction video that shows how various sub assemblies come together to form the Tempest.
Blake Baer (Blake’s Baericks) created this scene for the ongoing MOCathalon. I am sure most people are like Blake (and myself), in that Spaceman Spiff is their favourite Calvin & Hobbes character. Well Blake not only did the intrepid space explorer justice, he also did a wonderful job of creating a beautiful alien landscape full Continue reading →
