I’m not sure how long Amacher Sylvain (CaptainSmog) has been posting his LEGO models but his work is new to me. Which is neat as he’s made some fantastic steampunk creations that I’d never seen before. Found via Klocki.

Looking at these LEGO steampunk models, you can almost hear the hiss of steam, the clank of gears, and the whirr of clockwork. The steampunk aesthetic isn’t all wood and brass, so be sure to check out all the colorful models alongside classic steampunk creations from around the world.
It’s been several months since we’ve featured any “classic” steampunk, so I find this three-legged walker by cm946 surprisingly refreshing. The armor piece from what I assume to be Knight’s Kingdom makes a great central element, while the washtub cockpit and minuscule boiler provide an adorable contrast to the spindly legs.
We all have those dreams — flying around in our sleep. The ironwork supporting Nathan Proudlove‘s Mistral II steampunk aircraft carrier is inspired by Gustave Eiffel’s architectural masterpiece, topped with a lovely pavilion reminiscent of the Palais d’Industrie from the 1855 Paris World’s Fair. Naturally, the crow’s nest hangs down, and the flight deck is Continue reading →
The Wunderkammer or cabinet of curiosities existed since the Renaissance to collect intriguing man-made and natural artifacts. Guy Himber (V&A Steamworks) does the same in LEGO with his rendition of wunderkammer in a steampunk style, collecting artifacts from various builders.
Felix Greco (gipmetro) is excited about the upcoming release of the LEGO Atlantis sets, as am I. As sets trickle into stores, Felix may be the first to build a creation of his own design — this lovely submersible: The submersible is accompanied in its undersea endeavors by a certain Artimus Rhodes:
Nathan Proudlove says his latest steampunk creation was inspired by Dark Cloud 2, a Christina Aguilera song, and the steam spider by Crabfu Steamworks. In contrast to a lot of steampunk creations of the past, Nathan includes big splotches of color. The big flywheel gives it the classic steampunk touch, but the turquoise boiler and Continue reading →
A good amount of my day yesterday was spent talking about the US Air Force and LEGO steampunk with a cousin-in-law who is coming out of his dark ages. So it seemed fortuitous that Rod Gillies (2 Much Caffeine) posted pictures of his steam jet powered P2 Thunderbolt of the US Air Cavalry, circa 1906. Continue reading →
The LEGO steampunk 100-Piece Challenge just ended, and Drew (dover) came in right under the wire with this colorful contraption. I’m not entirely certain what that dark blue piece is, but knowing Drew, it could be anything from Duplo to Galidor.
V&A Steamworks has released yet another incredibly detailed clockwork sea-creature into the ocean depths. This one wants to sting you.
Crimson Wolf uses great techniques and parts for this Steampunk creation. I particularly like the parts used on the windows: It probably helps that I’m a sucker for sepia tones in photography, but I like that the treatment on this gives it a sort of “old-timey” flair. You can check out more entries for the Continue reading →
Over on flickr, The Magic Tuba Pixie has posted this fantastic underwater scene. I absolutely love the detailing under the dome on the jellyfish. The customization on the minifig is also excellent. The breathing apparatus is excellent.
With a gap between LEGO creations of almost two years, it’s great to see something new from Chris Malloy (porschecm2). His Iron Golem is both sinister and adorably, simultaneously mechanical and biological. The Chinese hats from the Adventurers Orient Expedition theme add a nice riveted look over the robot’s joints.
Sounds like it should a horrible mashup of bandwagon themes, but it’s actually one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a while. Nathan Proudlove built this steampunk battle bug for this year’s BrickCon in Seattle. Way to bring it. Looking forward to seeing it in person.
Jordan Schwartz finished a three month project on making a “steam-powered, schooner-shaped paddleboat.” Although there are many classic sea vessels and pirate ships, a large-sized steampunk ship is quite a delicacy. You can see this great build in person if you’re coming to BrickFair later this month.
Kevin Fedde Crimson Wolf, built this artificial steam powered intellect (ASPI) for the Flickr Steampunk group’s 100 piece challenge, and I just love it.
