Kahless cut a lock of his hair and dropped it into the lava of the Kri’stak volcano, then plunged the burning lock into the Lake of Lusor and twisted it into a blade. After forging the weapon, he used it to fight the tyrant Molor and then gave it its name, Bat’leth! Andrew Lee (onosendai2600) Continue reading →
LEGO Star Trek models on The Brothers Brick
Antonio Toscano has created a stop-motion animation LEGO version of the trailer for the upcoming J.J. Abrams sequel to his Star Trek reboot. Thanks to reader Andrea via our Facebook page.
The redoubtable Iain Heath (AKA Number One) has boldly gone where no one has dared go before. This is Star Trek: The Next Generation as it should have been. With relatively few pieces and lot of moxy, Iain has managed to capture the true nature of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Doctor Beverly Crusher, Counselor Deanna Troi, Continue reading →
Well, this may not be the first time Star Trek devices have been built out of LEGO bricks, but it definitely is one of the most impressive. Tommy Williamson beautifully and masterfully recreates the Phaser Type-II, Communicator, and Tricorder from Star Trek: The Original Series. Like a good citizen of the 23rd century, he spruces Continue reading →
USS Reliant appeared in “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” as a vessel commandeered by the titular villain. Christer Nyberg (myko82) built his LEGO version with 10-15 thousand bricks over the course of a year. See more pictures on Flickr, and read Christer’s write-up on Eurobricks.
Oftentimes we see applications of a new building technique on a small experimental model, but rarely do we see them applied to a large creation. I am delighted to see tiberium_blue‘s T’Met Monastery, which not only uses Technic liftarms for its massive stone walls but also depicts a refreshing subject of a fictional sanctuary inspired Continue reading →
Christophe Corthay‘s Star Trek inspired Vulcan ship called the Phenix has some of the craziest curves I’ve seen. They’re crazy because not only are there so many rings, but they are also textured by SNOT techniques. I can’t imagine the amount of strain in this model, which could make it explode at any moment. But Continue reading →
Adrian Drake has done an incredible job here. This ship is gorgeous. It’s over a 100 studs in length and almost entirely studless. I’m very impressed. Beautiful!
I think we could blog pretty much everything Stefan (-2×4-) has posted so far. Following his mini Battlestar Galactica fighters, Stefan’s Star Trek fleet includes a nice variety of ships. Naturally, resistance is futile.
You know it’s true. legomocs combines LEGO elements in a fairly simple way to achieve perfect brick-built phasers and a tricorder. Combined with the red and yellow torsos, these minifigs are instantly recognizable. Jamie said it best: “Normally they look too plain, but it’s amazing how nice black pants and a few accessories can make Continue reading →
I had the pleasure of seeing an unfinished version of Jon Walker‘s Surak MkII at BrickCon 2007 last month. Despite being unfinished, its awesomeness earned it a rightful “Best Spaceship” award. Inspired by a Vulcan ship from Star Trek: Enterprise, the ship is 244 studs in length with a ring 62 studs wide.
I feel like an odd person to cover the sci-fi section sometimes – besides liking to look at spaceships, I know nothing about Star Wars, Star Trek or basically any other sci-fi series for that matter. Still, that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate this fantastic sculpture made by Patrick Yrizarry depicting a certain Borg from Continue reading →
40 years ago today, the first five-year mission of the starship Enterprise began. Five television series, ten movies, and many books and video games later, Star Trek is still boldly going. Brendon Griffith celebrates with a microscale model of the N.C.C. 1701 U.S.S. Enterprise. An unknown builder celebrates the wise words of Spock with this Continue reading →
I hadn’t planned on making any minifigs based on Star Trek the original series, nor ones from Deep Space Nine, so I’m glad that Steve Bishop has created both! On an away mission, here’s Lt. Spock, Capt. James T. Kirk, Dr. Leonard H. McCoy, and the soon-to-be-deceased (I assume) Lt. D. E. Adman: Captain Kirk Continue reading →
Here’s my non-decal take on the crew of NCC-1701-D Enterprise (click for full photoset on Flickr: L to R: Deanna Troi, Worf, Data, Dr. Beverly Crusher, Jean-Luc Picard, Will Riker, Geordi LaForge, and Wesley Crusher. Edit (6/10/06): I forgot to include my Borg drones when I first posted this: Technorati tags: LEGO Sci-Fi Star Trek Continue reading →
