TBB rookies Jon and Catherine Stead (The Steads) have de-cloaked from some far flung corner of the galaxy with a trio of UCS-style models from the Star Trek franchise. My favorite of the group is this delightful Vor’Char Class Klingon Bird of Prey, the lines are perfect and so is the choice of scale. I hope the couple expands their project to other ships from the various series; they clearly have an eye for it.
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) simply built it with Bionicle parts.
“Do not think of it as a weapon. Make it part of your hand – part of your arm. Make it part of you” – Worf
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, Lieutenant Worf and Wesley Crusher.
Come see this in person later this week at SEALUG‘s LEGO display at Emerald City Comicon in Seattle.
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 up the models with Power Functions from Lego!
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 by a Star Trek Vulcan monastery.
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 for what it’s worth, the result looks drop dead gorgeous.
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 microscale Star Trek fleet includes a nice variety of ships from Star Trek: First Contact in a variety of sizes, ranging from the minuscule USS Defiant to the Enterprise-E.
Naturally, resistance is futile, as this large Borg Cube demonstrates.
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 blank torsos look.”
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.
