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.

In space, even Sunday laundry is interesting

I don’t know about you, but I’m not not a big fan of laundry … but Wami Delthorn shows us a wonderful glimpse in the future where I won’t have to do laundry…

Intergalactic Laundry Day

While laundry is boring, Wami’s build is anything but. It’s chock full of wonderful details that begs the viewer to take a second look at just how beautifully built this scene really is… such as the interior of the washer, the sink, and my personal favorite – the grouting on the floor.

The Gods Themselves Look Down Upon Us

“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” This oft-quoted nugget from Arthur C. Clarke is perfectly embodied in this otherworldly model by Nick V. (Brickthing). It’s not often that I’m blown away by the aesthetics of a spacecraft, but Nick is one of the best builders in the community, and has been tearing it up of late. This model, an alien “deity” worshipped by ancient humanity, à la Stargate, is a study in excellence.

To avoid making every other post here on Brothers Brick one of Nick’s new models, I’m also going to point out this stunning bonsai tree.

KG2.5 – ARC Omelet starfighter

I’ve been avoiding blogging this for days now, as I expected one of the space bloggers to pick this up, but I can’t let it go by… I’m not exactly sure what dirt Gold Member has on Ryan Wood (Lights), but it has to be something juicy to make Ryan build this for him:

KG2.5 - ARC Omelet

The curved bits wrapped around the ‘yolk’ is just fantastic, and just enough greeble to satisfy the eye. And of course probably the best use of stretcher I’ve seen (look closely!).

Friday Night Fights (Round 35)

Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another awesome round of Friday Night Fights! I was going to pick some Movie related builds to square off tonight, but much like Benny, I got distracted by spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIPS!!!

In the red corner, we have Bob DeQuatre with his Zenith SPACESHIP:
Zenith - Old Republic escort cruiser

In the blue corner, we have iomedes and his Nodens SPACESHIP:
NODENS class fast attack frigate

As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding the outcome of this bout by way of comment. On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, the horse race was a bit of a no show with Schfio winning by a score of 3-1. Tune in next week for another action packed edition of Friday Night Fights!

LEGO Starcraft Protoss Zealot

The original Starcraft game came out almost 15 years ago and has spawned a decade and a half of Starcraft inspired LEGO builds, from the humble probe, to the hydralisk troops to even the imposing Battle Cruisers.

And today we add another great Starcraft build to the ranks – ccy_8086 has built this fantastic Protoss Zealot with a great mix of  bionicle and system:
Protoss Zealot 007

 

While there’s tons of great piece usages, the face in particular I thought was fantastic. But this isn’t the first time CCY has embraced his inner gamer, his last build was an equally impressive Space Marine, which he still has built:

Astro Kitty & Angry Kitty

Simon is playing shy and not wanting to blog his own stellar creations it appears. So I will be more than happy to post this in his stead. Here’s Simon’s interpretation of Unikitty dressed in Classic Space garb from the upcoming LEGO Movie.

Astro Kitty

Edit:
I appear to have missed the fact that Simon based his Astro Kitty on Evan’s Angry Kitty. Which, no offence to Simon, is even more awesome.

Angry Uni-kitty.

I have yet to see the movie, but am anxiously awaiting the release date in my home town (despite my local theatre being old and smelly). In the meantime I will just continue to enjoy all the fan built creations inspired by what appears to be a hit in the making.

The Spirit of Fire, four years in the making

After herculean effort, Mark Kelso (Amhakia) finally unveils the massive Halo universe SHIP he began four years ago. No less impressive than the effort itself, the final product more than manages to live up to expectations.

Seven feet long and with every inch superbly detailed, this build is truly a labor of love. Head on over to the MOCpages gallery to read Mark’s thoughts on completing this marathon of a build, or head over to his flickr if you’re inclined to scroll back to the first work in progress shots from 2010.
