Back in 1999, the Sony PlayStation was the undisputed king of home video game consoles. If you owned a PlayStation and were a fan of turn-based RPGs (role-playing games), Squaresoft delivered a treat in the form of Final Fantasy VIII. Those of you who’ve played the game will instantly recognize this awesome model of Squall’s Gunblade by Letranger Absurde. I think it’s safe to say Letranger Absurde has earned enough experience points with The Brothers Brick to level up!
Was it Greedo, or was it Han? How about Markus Rollbühler? Markus wanted to gear up for the new Solo: A Star Wars Story movie coming out next week by building Solo’s DL-44 Heavy Blaster for a contest hosted by theRogueBricks Flickr group. He has done such a wonderful job recreating this Star Wars that I’m almost convinced he personally presented the gun to the space cowboy himself. I enjoy Markus’ attention to detail, including the textured leather grip. From a distance, it almost looks like the real deal!
Yes, boys and girls, if you really want to stand out amongst the crowd when all your friends have regular dart guns, here’s one that’s guaranteed to make them go green with envy. Astonishing Studios built a fully working Nerf Dart gun using LEGO.
Well, the only caveat is you’ve still got to purchase the foam darts, which is going to still put a hole in your pocket.
There is something about this cute collection of LEGO bricks by P. B. that makes me grin. “King and His Guards” is a simple troop of miniature, chess-like cannon fodder with overseeing gentry and cool bipedal heavy-artillery. It could be the chihuahua looking like a great dane next to our heavily mustachioed king, or his men all assembled with a small number of bricks, yet they all appearing to have their own personalities. Or it could simply be I love the walking tank — whatever the reason, I hope it makes you grin too.
The M-Tron would do anything to protect their magnet production, up to and including using force. And if you ever wondered what they would use, have no fear, for Isaac Snyder has you covered. His life-sized M-Tron blaster is full of great details like laser sights, a working trigger and of course, a magazine attached with magnets! No need to take my word for it, you can watch the video below.
ZaziNombies built perhaps my favorite replica from him yet in terms of screen accuracy with his LEGO Soldier: 76’s Heavy Pulse Rifle prop from Overwatch. The V-shape of the muzzle area and the blue barrel paneling are especially outstanding when compared to source material. The build is rounded out with nice touches like a removable top-loaded ammo cartridge and a light-up, wearable tactical visor. See it all in action in the video below. If you’re not familiar with Overwatch, don’t worry; some Soldier: 76 gameplay captures are also shown.
