Venerable car builder and auto enthusiast Lino Martins has broken new ground with this masterful MOC. It's a unique and mind-blowing mashup of car, train, steampunk and black magic (and they said it couldn't be done). I think both Grampa Munster or James T. West's arch enemy Lovelace would look right at home in this dark beast.
I've made no secret of my affection for Pete Reid and Yvonne Doyle. They were my best friends during my time in London. It is truly an honor to have yourself immortalized as a Minifig, and I consider it an honor to know them. This little tribute to classic plastic model building is perfect, and what I've come to expect from one of the best builders in the world.
This is my favorite character from all the Rankin & Bass Christmas classics, Yukon Cornelius, the greatest prospector in the north. When he throws his pick in the air and sniffs and licks it, it never fails to crack me up. Yet another brilliant Brick Sketch from Chris McVeigh.
My affection for Nintendo is well known, so it probably comes as no surprise that this is getting blogged. Builder One More Brick has crafted a series of everyone favorite bubblegum lump Kirby. I know, Kirby isn't bubblegum, but to this day that's what he reminds me of. My favorite Kirby title is the one no one else seems to remember, Kirby's Pinball Land.
Foodcember is 2/3 over, but that's not slowing down builder KOS brick. For weeks he's been tempting us with treats delicious enough to eat, but with decidedly little nutritional value (it turns out ABS isn't a food, who knew?) There's still some time to get in on the fun, break out the bricks and start "cooking".
As most of you know, Stephen Colbert and Comedy Central aired the last episode of The Colbert Report last night. I'm sad to see it go, but happy for Stephen and I'll be tuning in to The Late Show when he takes over next year. This was my first real MOC when I joined the ranks of the AFOL community. It was warmly received and has a special place in my heart, as does Stephen.
Builder _Tiler never ceases to impress me, achieving phenomenal detail at small scale and using such creative building techniques. This yellow Ford is Milner's iconic hotrod from American Graffiti, and it looks fast. And the banana reference isn't just about the color, check out the back fenders, genius.
