Those mad men at Beyond the Brick and Creations for Charity are going to kick off the holiday shopping season by hosting a 24 hour livestream starting tomorrow, black Friday. From 5pm EST Friday to 5pm EST Saturday they are going to be live. And for every hour they are on LEGO has pledged to donate a set to Creations for Charity. I plan to join them either late Friday or early Saturday. no idea what I'll do, but you can bet it'll be fun.
Tomorrow I will break out the Christmas carols for the first time of the year. We usually decorate for Christmas after feasting on Turkey and we'll listen to carols as we do it. Especially fun when I break out the vinyl, since I have all the records we listened to as a child. Back then they were played on a console very similar to this brilliant old school turntable by Yul Burman Karel.
As I always do I must disclose that I'm not a huge Transformers fan. It came along just a bit late for my childhood and the movies are just dumb. But I totally appreciate some awesome building, and this super deformed Optimus Prime from MacLane fits the bill. Now if someone could super deform Shia LaBeouf...
When I was a kid, Spiderman was my favorite super hero (Ironman too, but there were less toys). I have fond memories of racing around the cup-de-sac with my inexplicable Spiderman motorhome with my Mego figure inside. Now nobu_tary has created one of the best MOCs of everyone's favorite web slinger I've ever seen.
I don't know what mythical creature this MOC by Stuart Delahay is inspired by. Nor can I tell you the circumstances which led to this meeting. All I can say is I'm pretty sure the odds are stacked towards the big red guy, just sayin'.
You enter a small corridor, the dank smell of mildew and death burns your nostrils as you transfer the flame of your torch to the one on the wall. As the torch flickers to life more of the hall is revealed. There is a door to the left, and one to the right, what do you do? I'll tell you what you do, you break out your bricks and get building for the Iron Builder D&D Mixels Contest! Now roll a 10x and get building!
Did you really think it was all patrolling, hunting down bounties and force choking? No! After hours on the death star there's some serious rocking to do. And you haven't lived until you've heard one of Vader's ripping solos. Nice build Julius von Brunk
This thing looks right out of a nightmare. It takes skill to make a Bionicle based MOC look this cool, and even more to make it actually look scary. You can practically hear the roar of this sinister looking winged Makuta from builder Pate-keetongu.
