Dirk displays his prowess with sculpture yet again. His Luigi is adorable!
Retinence has concocted a very nicely streamlined Mech. He calls it Project Lilium. I call it Pretty Darn Cool.
My apologies for slacking off on the last two days of our 2009 BrickWorld coverage (unless you’d rather read what I write at past 3 a.m. for both nights). Now that the event is over and I’m back with a nightmare of bricks to sort, I’ll wrap things up with a few concluding words. This year’s BrickWorld set records in every way. With over 550 attendees, 25,000 square feet of LEGO, special guests from LEGO execs and more, we’re left to wonder how this year’s even can ever be topped.
Planning for BrickWorld 2010 has already begun, and this time the coordinators have booked the entire Westin hotel just for us LEGO fanatics.

It’s hard to imagine the Neo-Classic Space LEGO creations by Peter Reid (legoloverman) scaled down with just as much detail, but Pete himself has accomplished this with a series of lovely little microscale vehicles.
LEGO creations by nnenn certainly don’t lack for color. His rainbow of security robots are simultaneously adorable and formidable.
Ciamoslaw Ciamek gets a head start on commemorations for the 70th anniversary of the September Campaign (the invasion of Poland by both Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union) with a Polish PZL P.11c fighter.
The PZL P.11.c has the distinction of being the first Allied plane to shoot down Axis aircraft during World War II. Unfortunately, the Polish air force’s outdated P.11s were quickly overwhelmed by the Luftwaffe. Only one PZL P.11 survives today.
Jordan Schwartz steps up to the plate with this retro-bot. There’s just something about it that makes me want one. Maybe it’s the cute look. Maybe it’s the mandibles of destruction. Maybe it’s the fact that Jordan says it will do housework. Anyway, you need one too.
It would appear that both Ralph Savelsberg and I have been busy building aeroplanes this weekend. I assure our loyal readers that this was a total coincidence and not a cunning ploy on my behalf to cut down on the number of blog posts.
I’ve kept myself civilian (or at least sort of) with a De Havilland Otter.
The top of the square part is excellent. Like LEGO sets of the 70’s and 80’s, the back is open and has a fully detailed interior (photos forthcoming, Chris promises).
Oh fine, here’s a chipmunk photo, too.
