I spent four days under the shadow of Robin Sather’s 1:1 scale torii gate at BrickCon last weekend, so it was lovely to see this equally impressive-but much smaller- version of Miyajima Torii by Matija Grguric.

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.
I’m back from BrickCon, and ready to unveil the only new creation I’ve built since July. I had the funky idea to build this one evening, and actually had the time to do so. I figured that the post-apocalypse building scene could use a little more levity, and what’s better than cheerleaders to bring some Continue reading →
Apparently that’s what Mr. Sharkman is selling. This vignette by Harlen (tomi&tree) is whimsically creepy. It’s even more interesting to see his adorable four year old son play with his new toy in this video.
The poor mime never saw it coming. Great job James Zhan (pirate_cat), this would go well with Théo’s greeble attack.
I love the usually exotic vignettes by Crises. This one features a carnivorous plant, but what makes it interesting is the use of the Clickits cord for the plant’s tongue attacking an unsuspecting visitor. I also like the technique of using control lever bases to prop the glass panels.
Captain Spaulding built a scene from French writer Jules Verne‘s science fiction novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. What makes this vignette a hit is the use of a framed ocean backdrop to to put the scene in context. The custom seaweed looks to be made from cut up sprue pieces. The effect is nice Continue reading →
Sometimes an idea alone is noteworthy. Checkout this vignette by Théo (Titolian)
Brian Kescenovitz (mondayn00dle) is another builder who probably has more works featured on our blog than not. What makes this creation unique is the combination of an emotionally arousing scene and backstory (yes, a Lego creation can be more than eye-candy). The rust stains on the rare Bionicle mask of the hardsuit mirrors the stains Continue reading →
As much as we try not to populate the blog with every creation by a single builder, it’s difficult when that builder keeps making blogworthy MOCs from different themes each time. Tyler Clites (Legohaulic) recently ventured into the world of Disney with his Cruella DeVille’s Rolls Royce. As usual, Tyler’s minifigs are also innovative; I Continue reading →
Following the success of his vignettes depicting the adventures of Clumsy Pete in Atlantis, Bart De Dobbelaer has started a new series with a thriller set in space. Inspired by works including Pandorum, Event Horizon, and Dead Space Downfall, Bart hopes to draw elements from these works to create a unique story. Keep a close Continue reading →
Let’s all learn from our good knight’s example–remember to separate your light colored clothing from the darker colored clothing, less your pristine white uniform end up a lovely shade of pink: Matthew Hurt does an excellent job of illustrating the frustrating problem of discovering one’s pink laundry! On a side note, I do like the Continue reading →
No explanation needed. Hopefully this vignette by Felix Greco (gipmetro) puts a smile on your face, which I can’t say so for the nurse minifigs. And as per Nolnet’s suggestion, here’s another funny hospital vignette by Fedde (Karf Oolhu). Listen to Nurse Kelly: bend over and drop them.
Andrew Summersgill (Doctor Sinister) presents a potential future for the Doctor Who series. The 83rd Doctor (from series 340-343 aired between 2336 and 2339) doesn’t have quite the same heroic qualities as the first 82 Doctors… Click the pic to read Andrew’s hilarious description.
Brian Williams posted two new Indiana Jones bignettes (big vignettes). As with his works, I’m really impressed by the presentation, both the photography and the creations themselves. The Rocket Escape is composed of four standard 8X8 vignettes. The construction of the rocket is elegant for such a small scale. After staring at the large image, Continue reading →
Jonathan (legomocs) finished his T-rex skeleton and it is beautiful. The challenge of tacking such a complex organic shape is formidable, but Jonathan pulled it off. This is a very respectable build.
