Hundreds of the best LEGO creations on Flickr — all in one place

Simply put, we didn’t blog everything that deserved to be blogged in 2008. In some cases, time just got away from us before we gave a major event like Brick Fan Town the full write-up it deserved (though the Visual Tour is still well worth a look). In other cases, we just missed an amazing LEGO creation completely.

As I tried to write a post about the “Best LEGO creations of 2008 we really should’ve blogged,” I got invited to the LEGO – Top rating images group on Flickr.

“Super Electric Robot Team” by Peter Reid.

The group pulls together the three most-favorited photo from each member, ranging from amazing photos with hundreds of faves to hidden gems with just a few. An interesting way to view this group pool is to sort all of the photos by, well, “interestingness.”

“The War Wagon” by Fedde.

A site called Flickriver lets you flip through sets of photos by recency, randomly, or by how “interesting” they are. Scrolling down the Flickriver page for “LEGO – Top rating images” is like looking through a Greatest Hits selection from the last few years. I’m proud to say we’ve featured nearly all of the top photos from that group, but I loved seeing new things alongside all my old favorites.

Meatpunk “Grillbot” by Ryan “Moniker Pedant” Wood.

So, take some time and check out the LEGO – Top rating images group. You just might find a few new favorites yourself.

    I kept getting to the bottom of the page and it loaded more more more. There goes a day at work… I can just see it coming.

    Those are all very clever. I especially like the way Kristian made the mirrored look with two minifigures.

    Oh, and I think you spelled Ryan’s name wrong.

    Great idea for a pool. I’ve already spent a long while browsing all the stuff in there and added my own three. Funfunfun.

    I wonder when the day will be when my own building skills advance far enough for my creations to be blogworthy.

    Crazy stuff like meatpunk and that clown tank featured here a while ago.. is what really makes this worthwhile. Just to see what a mad imagination can create with some plastic.. the techniques used, it’s just great to be a part of this nonsense! (all the more to see it as well!)

    @Dr. X: Your last few builds have all been really great. You just happened to post them when we had a ton of other stuff backlogged. :( Keep building, and I’m 100% confident we’ll highlight one (or many) of your MOCs very soon.
