Danzou the Reaper’s Shin-nyu

I recently helped Linus Bohman with some ideas for a cool little space ninja vehicle. Here’s his Shin-nyu, a “long range infiltration and assassination craft” (shin-nyu means “infiltrate” in Japanese):

Be sure to click the picture for the full gallery — lots of great details on this one. Here’s the pilot of the Shin-nyu, Danzou the Reaper (Danzou is named after a legendary Japanese ninja):

Master mecha modeler Tac has posted several mecha inspired by pieces from Exo-Force set 7705: Gate Assault.

ONE: A Space Odyssey

Richard McCarthy recently blogged a video parody of Spider-Man 2 titled “The Peril of Doc Ock,” from Spite Your Face Productions — the same company that created the LEGO Monty Python Camelot song.

A Forest Road, and a Necromancer

I really respect builders who can cross thematic lines with ease, and Chris Malloy is one such builder, active in the LEGO Star Wars, Castle, and Space communities. His latest creations include two great dioramas that reflect a slice of medieval/fantasy life.

Here’s Chris’ “Road Less Traveled” (I love the mushrooms):

And in this scene, a necromancer finally gets what he deserves:
