According to Jacob (Maedhros1980), this ship is a Scouting and Surveillance ship for the Rebel Alliance in the Star Wars Universe, and that certainly explains the family resemblance to the ill-fated Tantive IV. But I’m not ashamed to admit that the reason I was drawn to it was its Ice-Planet-esque color-scheme.

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.
I’m not sure what got into him, but .Jake jumped up and built himself a SHIP. The Random Octangent is truly unlike any large-scale spacecraft I’ve seen, mostly because the builder has thoughtfully included a full-service gas station welded to the top. The fuselage faintly echoes the collected works of Mike Yoder, but with Jake’s Continue reading →
Brian Williams (BMW_Indy) is more typically associated with highly detailed train models and Indiana Jones dioramas, so his recreation of the Friendship 7 launch is a bit of a departure. But I think it’s a happy departure. The LED powered flame effect really adds to the diorama.
Just a quick announcement. For the first time in nearly 2 years, we at the Starfighters Group are having a monthly build challenge. This month’s theme was suggested by Shannon Sproule and is quite simple; just build a starfighter based on or inspired by the iconic video game series R-Type. So if you are interested Continue reading →
When your brightly colored pointy spaceship breaks down on the side of the intergalactic superhighway and you’re not even sure where the gas-cap is, don’t panic, just call THEO. Brought to you by TBB newcomer Galaltek, the THEO series of space-tugs can get you out of a jam in no time flat. I really enjoyed Continue reading →
This all started with an email from Peter Morris a few months back which basically said that we should really be building starfighters that transform. Coincidently I had been thinking about the same thing for some time already, especially since I had tried several times in the past to do it. Any attempt I did Continue reading →
Welcome back to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in fabulous Las Vegas Nevada for another hard hitting edition of Friday Night Fights! Tonight’s match-up is a battle of TBB rookies looking to move of the ranks and make a name for themselves in the hotly contested middleweight division. Now for the tale of the tape: Continue reading →
I’m hanging out the bullet curtain and going for a double-shmup post today. Vaughan James (legovaughan) and Peter Morris both present heavily armed spaceships that look like they’re ready to battle 10,000 bullets and a few bosses. Vaughan’s STG-2013: Phase 3 (a Starfighter Teleport design) is at the top while Peter’s DB-15 Aethershrike sits below.
It seems like you can’t stop the sci-fi action today, you can only hope to contain it. Submitted for your approval, the “SF-36 Aethon” star-fighter, courtesy of Stefan Schindler (Brainbikerider). The design reminds me a little of Rob dasnewten, but Stefan puts his own unique spin on things. It is a good thing I don’t Continue reading →
TBB first-timer Forest King (KingBrick) recently finished construction of his “Kodiak MK V air tug” and it is anything but boilerplate. There is so much going on, in fact, that I had trouble wrapping my mind around this model until I took a gander at the Killzone concept art that inspired the build. While the Continue reading →
I love the classic Space Invaders era shape Don Wilson (Ghengis Don) has going on in this LEGO starfighter. In general it has a nice old-fashioned feel without looking like something from a bad 80s cartoon.
Parallel to the American Apollo moon program, the USSR also worked toward landing their own Cosmonauts on the moon. Even though the Soviet program had enormous success with their unmanned Lunokhod rover, the manned program was ultimately canceled before Cosmonauts could be launched. Kei_Kei_Flic has built a LEGO version of the LK lander, complete with Continue reading →
This nimble robot by Spudbricks looks ready to rob–or perhaps arrest–anyone who comes across its path. I love the contrast between that menacing AI head and the adorable robot boots.
Anyone following my flickr account will know I posted this LEGO repair pod a few days ago. But, thanks to a) the arrival of my new lightbox and b) my rediscovery of Kerouac’s account I figured the time was right for a posting. re. a) I was finally inspired enough by TR’s light tent fun Continue reading →
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 →
