Every once in a while the inspiration for a build just slightly exceeds the bricks on hand. Most of the time this leads to delays and inevitable Bricklink orders. But that drive to get it done can also lead to creative workarounds. In the case of the walls of this lovely loft by Heksu, dark red was in short supply, but with a little out of the box thinking (and the use of jumpers, slopes and everything else that works) it got done. The results are impressive, and it's totally a place I'd like to hang out.
Generally we don't feature digital builds here on BrickNerd, but when they're as phenomenal as this one by Nicola Stocchi we'll make an exception. Behold the War Rig, driven by Furiosa in Fury Road and expertly recreated at minifig scale. This beast looks ready to conquer the wasteland, and thanks to exceptional lighting and rendering by Gabriele Zannotti, it's as beautiful as it is badass.
An interesting model by Boba-1980, but one that is rather fun and creative. The builder recreated the Battle of Crait, something we have probably seen plenty of times by now (and it hasn't even been a year yet!), but Boba-1980 make it in microfighter form. A condensed command shuttle, a smaller version of the base's turrets, and even a tiny First Order battering ram. What does that all create when combined? A fun model that I'm sure many kids could enjoy playing with.
Jan T. shares this incredible scene that takes place in a dystopian time. I feel like large, full scenes like this are not as common these days, and it appears that Jan agrees with that perspective. I'm really glad that he was able to create this awesome model that spares no detailing. Check out his other great builds on his Flickr!
Built for Brickworld Chicago 2018, Hacim Bricks made this awesome sci-fi city that is purely the definition of greebles, but greebling used to great and powerful effect. I was fortunate enough to see the very start of this build last year, but I never fully imagined how big or cool this would turn out once it was brought to completion by its builder! As to be expected with any creation like this, there are many small parts used in creative ways. What's your favorite use?!
Ben Cossy has reconstructed the ancient Sith temple that we see on Malachor from Star Wars Rebels! Arguably one of the best parts of the show, this temple looks incredible when recreated in LEGO form (especially when lit up, as pictured below)! The angling on the main structure, and accompanying columns, just adds so much depth to this structure that could be overlooked by the casual onlooker, but I would encourage you to take a closer to look to see all the added angles that Ben put in to make it a more complex model.
