It’s been awhile since we last saw iridescent nohow, but he’s back with a whole slew of micro builds that will make you think twice about a lot of pieces.
I was going to point out all the extremely clever piece uses here, like the drum sticks, the little flesh hands and each of the mini-micro figs … but at eight studs long it’s pretty easy to see all the nice piece usages.
(Though I will point out the fantastic Red Ruby Slippers on Dorthy).
And here’s a bonus one for all you Scooby-Doo fans:
Don’t forget to check out more of his recent micro builds on his photostream.
Jonas (Legopard) packed a lot of detail into this exotic vignette of a bamboo hut. The water technique is perhaps the most interesting feature to point out.
Now here’s a cult I might join: a place where bacon is revered and cooked tenderly to a delicious crisp. Builder Rifiröfi has an active imagination and the building chops to really bring home the bacon.
This scene by Luke Watkins Hutchinson (Derfel Cadarn) seems like a slice of someone’s nightmare. Check out the use of the judge’s hairpiece on the face of the ghoul.
Captainsmog‘s vignette featuring a character based on Leonardo da Vinci is an example of a creation that shows lots of fine details and techniques that beckons one to explore every corner of the build.
Prometheus, having stolen fire from the gods, was doomed to a terrible fate of being pecked by eagles for eternity. That’s a bummer for Prometheus, but it just so happens to make a really cool looking vignette, as demonstrated by Mihai Marius Mihu.
This vignette by Dark-Alamez features a must-see video showing a minifig manipulating the snowscape. Watch the first 5 seconds of the video and see if you can figure out how the builder did it. It’s a very clever and simple technique.
Stuart Delahay presents a vignette of Kid Joker demonstrating how to do division with a cleaver and a cat. Enough said.
Thanks for the tip Xenomurphy!
LegoJalex built a scene from a classic American comic and TV series, Dennis The Menace. I read some of the comics as a kid, so it was recognizable to me. Regardless, one should note the slingshot that Dennis is holding; it’s a very eye-catching accessory made out of official Lego elements and a custom sling.
Gideon_83 has made this fantastic cutaway vignette of a medieval middle-eastern fighting pit, wherein man and beast face each other in a barbaric clash.
His next most recent model—a more placid look at the toll the shifting desert sands take—strikes my fancy as well. It’s a beautiful use of a few colors and just a few simple pieces.
