Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another round of Friday Night Fights! I told myself I was’t going to get all sappy and do a Valentines Day Fight round …. but awesome MOCs are awesome MOCs, regardless of the occasion… plus I love bots. Let’s go to the tale of the tape:
In the red corner Nathan Proudlove (Proudlove) gives us free hugs with Lovebot:
In the Pink corner, Chris McVeigh (pwerpig) transformers my heart with his Valentron:
As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding the outcome of this bout by way of comment. On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, the SpaceSHIP spectacular Iomedes blasts off to victory 12 to 5. Tune in next week for another action packed edition of Friday Night Fights!
It wouldn’t be a holiday without a stop-motion LEGO Lord of the Rings video from BrotherhoodWorkshop. Check out “An Elvish Valentine.”

With Valentine’s Day approaching, the lovely Miss Klementina Kos has announced a contest for all you guys to express love through bricks. If you can build a creation that’ll win the hearts of a panel of female AFOL judges, you’ll be rewarded with a complete set of series 3 minifigs. You can check out the contest details on Flickr or MOCpages.
Proximity to Valentine’s Day seems appropriate enough for the Halloween/Christmas hybrid that is The Nightmare Before Christmas.
This vignette by Stefan (brainbikerider) featuring Jack Skellington singing beneath the full moon won a recent vignette contest among Austrian LEGO fans.
Troy Cobb worked with the model builders at LEGOLAND California to arrange a special sign on the Eiffel Tower (part of the Miniland Las Vegas display), asking his girlfriend Lacey Williams if she’d marry him.
Troy and Lacey are both LEGO fans who took a special trip to LEGOLAND California to celebrate Valentine’s Day and Lacey’s birthday. Naturally, Lacey said yes, and they plan to have LEGO cake-toppers at their wedding.

While I may not be keen on Valentine’s Day as a holiday, I can’t fault Mark Neuman for the way he expresses his Valentine’s wishes. He’s built an adorable mecha/animal robot to offer up a cupcake. I love the expressiveness of the face he’s achieved, and the feet are just adorable. Since I’m 3000 miles away from Mark, I can’t eat the cupcake, so I wish it was made of LEGO too.
