Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I have not yet made it to the third installment of Mr. Martin’s epic tale. I cannot claim to have seen any of this season yet, either (which I assure you is very sad). I can, however, tell you that I’ve been flickr-stalking Dave Ware (Brickwares) since I caught a sneak-peak of this mosaic on facebook.
Clearly my flickr-stalking paid off. Because this is just stunning, and regardless of your opinion of the Lannister family (or any of their words), you can certainly take a moment to appreciate this mosaic.
Peter Dinklage did.
If you lean more towards the sci-fi end of the spectrum, Dave’s got something for you, too.
Well, I won’t actually tell you — you’ll have to watch the show — but Thorsten Bonsch (Xenomurphy) has continued his series of scenes celebrating the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who with two scenes from the 2007 episode “Gridlock”.
First, Thorsten has recreated the incredible scene in which the Doctor and Martha encounter the world’s largest traffic jam:
But my favorite of Thorsten’s scenes so far is from the end of the same episode, in which the Doctor has an important encounter with the Face of Boe:
Just to prove that there are indeed much more interesting potential licenses LEGO could pursue (notwithstanding the existing Character Building sets), here’s a scene from Doctor Who built by Connor H.
Connor uses forced perspective in the background, and the photo’s lighting is consistent with some very blue artwork by Tim Doyle.
(It’s not the best LEGO TARDIS I’ve seen, but I’d rather have a nicely evocative Doctor Who scene at the top of the page than Homer’s stupid bald head.)
Alex Jones (Orion Pax) hits another 80’s homerun. Not only is this a clean, sytlish build, but the integration of the light brick into the hood actually made me giggle a little bit. I so want to zoom this vigorously on my desk right now. The Hoff would be so proud.
Please check out the full gallery on Alex’s website.
Schfio made them and they are too adorable for words.
Tama and Friends is Japanese Anime series that originally ran in 1994.
Growing up in Asia, the classic Doctor Who was never available to me, so I only got into the show around 2005 here in the States, with the Ninth Doctor. Nevertheless, I’m excited about the 50th anniversary of the show this year. But not as excited as Thorsten Bonsch (Xenomurphy), who promises 11 LEGO models over the next several months, each inspired by the incarnations of the Doctor since 1963.
Thorsten starts off with the most recent Doctor, and in fact the most recent Doctor Who episode — the Christmas special titled simply “The Snowmen.”
I think Iain put it best: “Longest. Post. Ever.“
The death-rays that Daleks use to EXTERMINATE! make sense. The plungers? Not so much. Pascal (pasakuru76) helps me to understand the purpose of that singular device.
The Death Glider from Stargate is a challenging ship to build due to its curved shape, but Kevin Walter convincingly replicated it in Lego. The brick-built canopy looks very good.
Adrian Drake (brickfrenzy just completed his 70,000 piece Serenity (from the wonderful but short-lived series Firefly) after more than 475 hours of work over nearly two years.
The ship weights 135 pounds and has a complete interior, from bow to stern. Many interior spaces also have lighting, and the shuttles detach.
We’ve featured some great Serenity models here on The Brothers Brick over the years, but none at minifig scale. See 75 photos of this awesome model on Flickr.
(My challenge to build a minifig-scale Prometheus still stands…)
It’s wonderful to have Doctor Who back on the air, and even better that those of us watching it on BBC America don’t have to wait weeks for it after it airs in the UK. This week’s episode wrapped up the season opener rather nicely, and this LEGO treatment by Legoagogo is rather nice as well.
I’ve seen many brick renders of the TARDIS from Doctor Who, but I’ve never seen the interior built with Lego until Mr. Xenomurphy presented his latest creation. You don’t have to be a fan of the TV show to appreciate the striking architectural design with its intricate details and working lights. Check out the gallery on MOCpages for more photos including construction shots.
Andrew Summersgill (Doctor Sinister) presents a potential future for the Doctor Who series. The 83rd Doctor (from series 340-343 aired between 2336 and 2339) doesn’t have quite the same heroic qualities as the first 82 Doctors…
