The Latest from Cerebruminc

Snoikle has a great interview with Philip Painter (Brickshelf), discussing the design inspiration and building process behind his latest spacecraft, LL928. Here’s the freighter in question:

Mecha can be pretty big, but Brickshelfer MACHA goes the other direction with a series of tiny creations inspired by Gundam. Click the image to see multiple galleries of pint-size creations:

My only disappointment is that MACHA hasn’t created Gundam itself. Oh well, we can hope for an update.
