A delicious drumstick tower

Ben Spector thought he could hide LEGO turkey drumsticks in the tower roof of this lovely build and get away with it. Well, this is surely not the case because we did notice this clever part usage. But that is not the only smartly used part. We get ice cream scoops used as smoke and cheese slopes representing stained glass windows. Since LEGO will probably never release non-licensed castle sets with skin-toned Minifigures, I always navigate towards creations that do match these criteria. One of the best things about this creation has to be the base of the tower which grows wider and wider until it is wide enough to support a full-blown tower on the first floor. Chapeau!

Steam into the circus with this whimsical train

The modern circus can trace its roots back to the late 18th Century in Philip Astley’s Amphitheatre. By the 1800s, the development of a vast railroad network allowed the circus to hit the tracks, traveling from town to town. In a world before radios and television, the circus was often one of the most highly anticipated entertainment events. Celebrating the spirit of the traveling circus, Ben Spector has built a colorful and fun-looking circus train.
