It is the mark of great talent when a LEGO creator can build something that rises above the simple bricks and other elements to be easily mistaken for a mass-produced plastic model. I have been a great fan of FLAVIO‘s WIFFY series of cute and capable drones for years. These incredibly intricate and detailed robots are built around a signature part, the soccer helmet, which reminds me of old-fashioned football helmets from the 1920’s. This well-armed WIFFY also features a number of the new espresso handles, bar holders, and bar holders with clips. Another great detail are the binoculars tucked in under those red eyes.
Bleak laboratories of the Aperture Science facilities (as seen in both parts of Portal) will be forever remembered by the game’s fans thanks to the chilling soulless voices of the turrets. Although LEGO creations are rarely designed to make any sound effects, just pictures of these works by (FLAVIO) is enough to make me feel uneasy in much the same way those turrets did. TORUS is a beautiful example of how irregular Technic parts can be combined with tiles to create a peculiar layer of armour.
