. . . I would so eat this. This entry by Sven Junga for the Mocathalon contest is fantastic in and of itself, but the brick built scalloped edge plate, garnish and crustacean flesh extractor all enhance the awesomeness.
This psychedelic Clickipiller train by Megan Rothrock (megzter1) is both a cute creative concept, and a bit disturbing. I especially like the googly eyes and odd angle of the mouth.
I think I would generally be more into trains if they were covered in Clikits.
This Ploughshare Evacuation Vehicle by Lord Pappadhum is both a solid little build and a nice twist on the space fighter concept by converting it into the workhorse of a futuristic non-governmental organization.
I really like both the simple color scheme and the red cross emblazoned treatment pod at the back.
At least this cute little one by Matt Armstrong (monsterbrick). My favorites for sure are Oscar the Grouch and Elmo’s little clam head, but Cookie Monster comes in a close.
Why in the world am I not camped outside Matt’s house waiting for the next great creation?
A commuter bus seems like a pretty good summary of the last few months of my life, except this working articulated bus by Vibor Cavor (Veeborg) is so much cooler than anything I’ve been riding.
So worth checking out the rest of his photoset of this bus since he goes into such detail about the interior workings. The doors open and everything.
When I first saw the Crimson Permanent Assurance section of Monty Python’s Meaning of Life when I was a kid it simply blew my mind. This Cafe Corner standard version by gotoAndLego does the same.
It’s a pretty imposing structure and fairly close to the appropriate architectural features for the building. I would find this thing crewed by elderly clerks driven mad quite intimidating if it drifted past my office.
I just love the dark green color scheme and ruggedness of this gunship by Aaron Dayman.
This modified off-road Range Rover by Cole Blaq is simply phenomenal. It looks ready for anything.
The intentional hunched back look between the engine and passenger compartments is so well done.
A title by Brian Kescenovitz (mondayn00dle) that’s simply too cool not to use. Matches the scene perfectly. Beyond the silly appeal, it’s a well constructed and posed mech. Full of nice part usage like the scout trooper helmets as hips and minifig arms to add some curves to the feet.
For the record, I’m a cat lover and owner and nobody will be able to convince me this isn’t funny. The cat is nimble, I’m sure it can take it.
A friend pointed out this hidden little gem inside one of the Prince of Persia LEGO display cases at Comic-Con International. Sure looks like a prototype Captain Jack from Pirates of the Caribbean.
Thanks for the tip, Bruno!
UPDATE: Julie Stern from LEGO Brand Relations tells The Brothers Brick, “Yes, that is a pirate among the prince of Persia sets. Stay tuned for more details surrounding this 2011 line.”
