Here comes the sun (flowers)

It takes a certain sort of madness to take something like a 9V Train track switch element and turn it into something organic like a bunch of sunflowers. But that’s just what Eli Willsea has done. Somehow. I mean, sure, you could start with 40 or so of those train switches. Add some 1×1 round brick in light green. A couple of round plates in brown. But then you have to get really creative: Check out that perfume bottle. Who even knew those 1×1 pyramid slopes came in transparent-clear? They form the perfect texture, making the full image for Eau du Soleil seem like an advertisement in a high-end fashion magazine. It’s just…*chef’s kiss*

Eau Du Soleil

This creation is just one of Eli’s entries in the Iron Builder competition. Check our archives for more from the contest.

I love the smell of ABS in the morning

Six parts, nice macro photography, beautiful presentation, and a vivid imagination — combine these ingredients and you get a fantastic little LEGO creation. Sure, Steve Roberts‘ perfume ad doesn’t have a whole lot of actual building going on, but it shows imaginative parts use and a great eye for colour and style. Not all the best LEGO models are huge and complex, some of them just manage to look (and smell) fabulous.
