Mark Stafford (lego_nabii) has just posted a photo of an awesome model, built by one of his fellow designers at LEGO, Luis Castenada. Luis built an awesome custom Marine from StarCraft. Obviously, the head is not an authentic Lego piece, and a few parts have been painted, but that doesn’t stop this from being amazing. Continue reading →
LEGO Video Game models on The Brothers Brick
Even if you’re not an Xbox, PlayStation, or Nintendo gamer yourself, and even if you’ve never played one of the many LEGO games, it’s hard not to appreciate the strange and stunning LEGO creations inspired by video games. Look for lots of LEGO models inspired by Halo, the Legend of Zelda, Gears of War, Pokemon, Final Fantasy, and more. Game on!
Ever wondered what it would look like if LEGO made a video game of Breaking Bad? Here’s what Brian Anderson came up with.
CK Tsang (chiukeung) continues his fantastic series of miniaturized retro hardware with a LEGO Nintendo Entertainment System, complete with Light Gun for playing Duck Hunt.
Russian fan Mister Fedin (Fianat) has created this stunning bit of steampunkery, heavily influenced by the much-hyped Bioshock Infinite game which launched just yesterday. This flying city block may have a rather traditional steampunk color-scheme, but Fedin has used it to great effect. I particularly love how this wonderful architectural menagerie includes elements influenced by Continue reading →
Ever since the mutalisk buff, in Starcraft 2 Heart of the Swarm, this Zerg flyer has been massively popular in games. It looks like Mike Nieves (retinence) got the message and made his own to join his Zerg swarm. You can see more photos on Imgur.
Imagine Rigney built a Reaper from Mass Effect 3 with full posability and movable faceplates that reveal a light-up laser eye. I really like this shot that shows the massive size of the Reaper towering over a microscale city. Check out MOCpages for more photos.
Bruce Lowell (Bruceywan) has created a truly fun rendition of one of Nintendo’s iconic characters, Yoshi. From the bulbous nose, to the “Yoshi Egg”, from the shell on his back to the brick-built hills in the background, this creation is simply awesome.
Evan B. (Lego Junkie) has built a scene from Call of Duty Black Ops II, I know nothing of the game, and Evan admits to not playing it himself. However, what I do know is that this is one rockin’ example of how to build decay. That diner sign is an absolute thing of beauty! Continue reading →
One benefit of getting together with other LEGO fans at local club meetings is that you get to hear the thought process that goes into their LEGO models. Shawn Snyder (Flickr) has been building fantastic character sculptures for years — remember his amazing Predator bust? — and lately he’s been bringing his figures to SEALUG Continue reading →
Bart De Dobbelaer has built a classic “baddie”, the Cacodemon, from the iconic and controversial video game “DOOM“. It is so perfect (and adorable) I need one…or three. EDIT: I had originally written that the Cacodemon was introduced in DOOM 2, but I was in error. Many thanks to Peter Morris for the correction!
Peter L. Morris was commissioned by Digital Reality to build LEGO examples of some of the aircraft from their XBOX Live game Sine Mora. Peter’s unique starfighter style translated very well for both of these planes. Big congrats to Peter on the commission, and a job well done! You can download instructions if you would Continue reading →
Cam M. built himself a nifty little stand to hold his iPhone so that he can actually steer while playing car racing games. Cam utilized a Smallworks Brickcase to attach the phone, but it would still be possible to do something like this without such a case. I think I may have just found myself Continue reading →
In January 2007, Mike Crowley began building all the major characters from Nintendo’s Mario Kart games, starting with King Koopa himself, Bowser. Mike soon followed with Mario and Toad: Yoshi & Donkey Kong: Mike brought all of these to BrickFest PDX 2007 in Portland, where he had them all in karts that I don’t think Continue reading →

First place: zane_houston‘s Mecha Bowser Second place: 2 Continue reading →
