Sand castles don’t last forever, even ones made of the Sands of Time

This LEGO hourglass is something magical with its grains building a castle as time passes. Builder Simon Liu presents this unique hourglass for the Brickscalibur contest. As time moves, so does the construction of the castle. And when it’s complete, time is up. It’s a clever idea to showcase the passage of time and life. Being an hourglass, it represents the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. The build uses a wonderful assortment of tan pieces to give the castle definition. There are even some walls and bits in the top portion of the hourglass from the last sand castle. The build also makes some good use of gold pieces to give the timepiece a gilded elegance. This is a really cool design and idea, and is certainly one of my favorite time-related LEGO builds.

Keep building and nobody explodes

I don’t mean to alarm anyone, but this dynamite LEGO creation by Sylon_tw is the bomb! I’m in love with the simplicity of this build, the biggest part of which is simply three tubes of round red bricks. But the “wiring” wrapping them, the precarious connections comprising the pair of snips, and one of the best uses of a LEGO branded watch that I’ve ever seen take this thing to a whole new level! I can’t help but hear the Mission: Impossible theme as I stare at it. And I’m still trying to decide if I should cut the yellow wire or the pink one.
