Advice suggests avoiding eating heavy meals before bed. Nick Sweetman, the builder of this crazy rainbow nightmare, appears to have thrown caution to the wind. His bedroom scene is littered with treats and snacks galore. That Wonka bar hinting at the seriously psychedelic side effects of consuming too much sugar before sleep. It’s a premise that has allowed Nick to unleash every colour in the LEGO palette – in fact there is an artist’s brush and palette suggestively tucked away on one of the shelves – in aide of creating the most marvellous, hallucinatory, maelstrom. It’s a vibrant, queasy, spectacle of a build that celebrates colour and chaos with little regard for sensible modelling conventions… and I love it!
Harkening back to the good ol’ days, this delightful minifig presentation by Matt Oborne is a simple celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day. Showing a straightforward yet effective technique to curve LEGO elements into a beautiful rainbow, Matt has created a humble tribute to an incredibly enjoyable celebration. May you find your Pot o’ Gold this March 17th.
Your minifigs might or might not be under the influence of certain substances if they encounter this castle, but just ignore that and admire the lovely bricks in Simon Schweyer’s rainbow fortress.
