The Force is Strong with this Chibi!

Nick D.M. (AKA DarthNick) just came out of hyperspace with two AMAZING Chibi Star Wars models! Not only does his Chibi X-Wing and TIE Fighter capture that unique playful style, they are also minifig compatible and remain faithful to the original designs of the ships.

To Boldly Build what No Man has Built Before!

Well, this may not be the first time Star Trek devices have been built out of LEGO bricks, but it definitely is one of the most impressive. Tommy Williamson beautifully and masterfully recreates the Phaser Type-II, Communicator, and Tricorder from Star Trek: The Original Series.

Like a good citizen of the 23rd century, he spruces up the models with Power Functions from Lego!

Execute Order Chibi Chibi!!!

I have found in my years engrossed within the LEGO building community that builders utilizing the “Chibi” style of design are few and far between.  Kevin Ryhal has created a set of Chibi 501st ARF Troopers and AT-RT walkers from Star Wars: The Clone Wars.  His attention to detail mixed with his “Chibi-ness” design is amazing, but add in “mecha” style articulation to the joints and it becomes most impressive.
