If you are attending Brickworld in June, you probably know that the theme for this year is space. More specifically, there are four collaboration displays designed to accommodate a variety of sci-fi creations. Here are the details: The Space Frontiers display is a collection of space crafts and objects found in space. The guidelines are Continue reading →

Bisonfuehrer‘s Vic Viper for the Missing Man display at BrickWorld 2010 has pink bubbles that remind me of a bubble eye goldfish. It’s one of the most innovative space creations I’ve seen in a while; the use of the onion dome certainly tops the chart for creativity.
If I had to choose only one legacy to remember nnenn by, it would have to be Novvember. Novvember is the month of the Vic Viper, and surely no one can forget nnenn’s daily debut of a new VV in November 2008. When I interviewed nnenn on this project, I began to appreciate the beauty Continue reading →
This Vic Viper was the first that nnenn has shown us at the start of 2008. I had to learn that this starfighter came from the the 1985 Gradius games. The player controls a ship known as the Vic Viper in this scrolling shooter, which you can actually play here. Thanks to nnenn, just about Continue reading →
Our third installment of interviews by Keith Goldman takes us into the mind of a builder that — let’s be honest — you either love or hate. Take it away, Keith! This week’s builder is known as “nnenn,” and should need no introduction if you’re a fan of science fiction models, or a follower of Continue reading →
In his latest Vic Viper, Peter Morris dispenses with minimalism in colouring and replaces it with all the gaudiness of a racecar. His ARX-02a Victoria’s Viper is loosely based on the 2009 Acura ARX-02a and the racing influence is a definite plus. It’s always a challenge to pull together this many colours but he’s managed Continue reading →
Andrew Lee is calling it the Raptor. I call them T-Rex parts. I expect that everyone will call it awesome.
I’m sure I’m going to have to do a round-up post at the end of the month with all my favorite Vic Vipers. In the meantime, I couldn’t resist posting one that I just saw. Stefan (Brainbikerider) has a pretty different take on the Vic Viper shape. His ship is a lot less pointy than Continue reading →
Vic Viper VOAT Vinivious by Uspez Morbo Space 2 by Rogue Bantha Eldorado Fortress Redux by Kris Kelvin Once again I find myself with more neat stuff to blog and no time to do it all justice. At least I added names this time. Does anyone else find the new version of flickr really frustrating Continue reading →
The good folks in the LEGO Starfighters group on Flickr have started a new Novvember. That means that many people are building Vic Vipers, inspired by the game Gradius, all month long. I’m digging the one below by legodrome, and I’m sure there will be many more nice fighters to come. I feel that the Continue reading →
This Vic Viper by Mark Stafford (Nabii) has a very unique look to it. Incorporating boilerplate techniques with a variety of Mecha-style weapons and details, he has created a blend that is very refreshing!
A result of Novvember, here are almost all of the Vic Vipers built by Nnenn and the participants. You can see them all on Flickr’s Vic Vipers pool!
During November, Nnenn ambitiously set out to present a new variation of the Vic Viper each day of the month. While the LEGO fan community on Flickr has known Nnenn to be one of the most prolific builders, no one has ever seen a builder post one new medium-sized LEGO creation for each day of Continue reading →
Chrispockster uses parts from various short-lived themes to get a wide variety of interesting colours in his version of a Vic Viper (yes it’s still NoVVember). I reckon that the range of shapes, textures and colours makes this the most unusual take (so far at least) on the two-pronged Viper shape.
This incredible Steampunkish Vic Viper is pure win! Mark Stafford has outdone himself. There is so much awesome goodness here, I don’t know what to say. I’ll just shut up and let it speak for itself.
