Just when we think Tyler (aka Legohaulic) can’t raise the bar any higher, he reveals his latest creation. This time, it’s the Chooser of the Slain, an epic portrayal of a Norse Valkyrie. Tyler has completed his build with a fantastic bit of photography, to properly highlight his model, and even a video to depict the moving parts in action.
Shannon Sproule (Shannon Ocean) continues work on his Battle for the Moon retro cold war world series. Shannon says
With more parts and experience I’m in a better position now to flesh out the BFTM world than before
Well I for one loved it before. I think I love it even more now.
Fortunately, I’ve got two more days before it’s all done. Bwahahahahaha.
See the rest of the week’s minifigures here:
Seth Christie has concocted this riotous scenario of the dashing gentlemen Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, as they engage a befuddled company of the Cardinal’s men, to showcase the fantastic Musketeer figure from Series 4. Beyond the amusing bedlam in the tavern, this diorama is brimming with crafty techniques, like the paintings above the stairs, and the slate flooring.
Perhaps coincidentally, Seth has released this just in time to coincide with the awesomely-Steampunkish new Three Musketeers movie.
Sometimes, all it takes for a great creation is to make creative use of an unusual part. Take these space ships built by Haypro. Shamefully, it’s taken me almost two months to post this photo, which I loved as soon as I saw it.
First, I was struck by the creative use of the Hero Factory armor pieces as armor on the larger ship. These pieces work great as armored cowlings, and I know that they are difficult to attach to normal LEGO bricks. Upon further examination, I noticed the front of the smaller ship. Those are minifigure neck baskets, but the shape is absolutely perfect for a Corellian style ship.
Upon first glance, Taylor (Stormbringer) shows us just how lovely a good bit of landscaping can be. A good deal of overgrowth, a nice little cliff, and a tree to tie it all together, with some intrepid outdoor explorers crawling all over it for good measure.
I invite you to look just a little closer, though, and please remember that you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
Thank for the tip, Dan A!
