Here at The Brothers Brick we are like raccoons in the sense that we love shiny things and have short attention spans. Apparently there is also a lemur within our ranks but I have not seen the critter around the headquarters since my inception here. But that is a matter for another day; as for now, we will deal with the only thing that matters, which is this stunning LEGO Confederate R131 Fighter Motorcycle by Ian Ying. There was a time when LEGO was on board with our obsession for shiny things but that is in the past and what bit of precious chrome is left has become increasingly rare and costly. Custom chrome parts can be had but you’d have to spend a pretty penny (a shiny penny!) to build something as gloriously chrome-plated as Ian had.
There was apparently a time when other things mattered. But our reason for publishing, our reason for our very existence has all led up to this. As a raccoon with a short attention span who loves shiny things, I declare this to be the best LEGO creation in the history of the world ever and will be until the end of time! Or until a few hours from now when something else captures our attention, whichever comes first.
