Vignettes are like the haiku of the LEGO world. Usually built on a base 8 studs wide by 8 studs deep, vignettes show a little scene or a moment in time. But like written poetry, there’s plenty of variation on the basic theme.
Imagine Rigney displayed this Bioshock creation at Brickworld last weekend. This multi-story vignette features scenes from Bioshock from the ravaged rooms of Rapture to the cold depths of the ocean floor. There’s much more behind the walls and windows of the building you see. Check out all the details on Flickr.
Brian Williams (BMW_Indy) yet again shows his expert vignette craftsmanship in his build of the Battle of San Juan Hill. Everything from the custom-built horse, the explosion, the grass field, the sloped hill, and the display base separate this creation from the ordinary.
Ah, the life of an artist. Glamorous, with paintings selling for millions upon millions, right? Eh, probably not. Unless you’re Picasso, this poor minifig probably won’t see his works reach seven digits in his lifetime. But that’s glamorous, right? All he wants to do is pay for his fantastic flat, that he just cleaned. But Continue reading →
Mr. Xenomurphy‘s Frankenstein vignette depicts the perfect setting for the scene when Victor Frankenstein brings his creation to life. Check out the gallery on MOCpages for more pictures that show other great details such as the cracked floor.
I’m always happy to see innovations in MOCs. This creation by Alex Mac puts a twist on the traditional concept of a western duel, literally. I can imagine the bullets spiraling from the guns of the shooter to his opponent. You can see more pictures including the technique on MOCpages.
Bart De Dobbelaer, known for his storytelling through vignettes, has unveiled the first scene of another story about a band of misfits trapped in a strange world. Inspired by sci-fi films such as Cube, Alien Resurrection, and Predators, this story promises to be a thrill ride. You can follow it in this gallery.
Settlers of Catan is, by all accounts, a rather fun German board game. LEGO is, by all accounts, a rather fun toy. So it makes sense to combine the two. Except Michael (suparMacho) hasn’t actually built this. He’s use SR3D builder (an LDraw editor) and POVray to render it. Aside from those people lucky enough Continue reading →
Hans Dendauw (tigmon74) captures the art of meditation in this well crafted vignette featuring the Ninjago minifigs. Thanks for the tip Chris Phipson!
At least this cute little one by Matt Armstrong (monsterbrick). My favorites for sure are Oscar the Grouch and Elmo’s little clam head, but Cookie Monster comes in a close. Why in the world am I not camped outside Matt’s house waiting for the next great creation?
In this comical vignette, Kevin Wise (WisrthanU) presents one of the best uses of the dummy fig along with an effective application of forced perspective.
Brad Bergman made a full size window display of an advent calendar. Each of the 24 room contains a vignette and represents a day of December leading up to Christmas. Although you can already see the rooms revealed, Brad is posting detail shots of each vignette daily along with a description. You can follow the Continue reading →
Bart De Dobbelaer has started another series of storytelling vignettes, and this time the plot takes place in a fantasy era setting. I love the construction of each vignette on an irregularly shaped base. If you haven’t experienced Bart’s other two stories, you should check them out.
Now you can score this real-gold plated LEGO turkey, the only one ever made from ChromeBricks, and it’s awesome. Simply build a turkey in the next three weeks and post a picture on this Flickr page, just in time for Thanksgiving. Yum. Full details here.
I’m liking the imposing majesty conveyed by Jonathan Gilbert (Shmails) in this loose micro rendition of the Abu Simbel temple complex on the Nile in Egypt. He’s also made a quite a nice vignette from the opening scene in Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange.
