Freelance Technic blogger, Peer Kreuger (mahjqa) sends us this beauty. I agree! While most great ball contraptions are the result of a collaboration between many people, mechanical mastermind Akiyuki has been so busy building GBC modules that he made a damn impressive lineup all on his own. The intricate modules have an almost hypnotic quality Continue reading →

If you prefer your pictures moving — whether it’s a funny story told with stop-motion animation, video review of a new LEGO set, or showcase for a custom LEGO model’s working features — we have your LEGO videos right here.
Max Yang (ArtiFex Creation) has been keeping up his animated reviews of many of the recent sets. Unlike traditional reviews, Max shows you the brick-by-brick construction process of each set, leaving you with the experience of almost having built the set yourself.
BrotherhoodWorkshop has created a funny little stop-motion video that proves we might have a lot to learn about orcs.

But, what really caught my attention on this MOC is the ingenious use of Power Functions on the scene. Both the moving tentacles and the leaning tower are what makes this creation really great.

Zane Houston has done a rather hilarious Super Heroes video for a contest on FBTB.net. I could watch this over and over…I especially like when the Hulk starts whooping Superman’s behind :-D I also like Zane’s camera rig that he made for the video shoot :D
We’ve featured many of Jarek‘s Warhammer 40K creations in the past, but this is a first. Instead of scale models of vehicles or troops from the games, he’s built a life-sized gun from the game.
