The fine folks at Brick Warriors were kind enough to send over one of their latest releases, the German Flametrooper. While I'm not a military builder, we have had military scenes in a couple animations done here over the last few years, so we do keep an assortment of military accessories on hand. And now we have a particularly badass set.Read More
I will admit I had never heard of this temple before this morning, but after seeing this jaw-dropping build by EugeneTTs I had to do a little research. The real building in Laos is stunning, and after seeing it I have even more appreciation for the attention to detail and accuracy of this model. Both are absolutely beautiful.
I remember when I was discovering that I was not alone in my adult LEGO fandom one of the first creations that sorta blew my mind was an elaborate mech. I'm sure if I want back and found that exact model it would be pretty tame by today's standards, but it was still my first "wait, that's LEGO?" moment. I'm sure if I had seen this stunning mech by LEGO 7 I would have just kept scrolling, because it wouldn't have even registered as brick built from a thumbnail.
It takes one flip through a Sears Wishbook or a rerun of the Gong Show to remind yourself just how unattractive the 70's were. Things like avocado appliances and bellbottoms not only existed, they were popular. It is in this environment that things like wood paneling, orange on brown paint paint schemes and the shag dashboard were allowed to happen. So for LUGNuts' latest challenge "cult following", builder Lino M had to audacity to built an El Camino, with an orange on brown paint job...and it's friggin' awesome. It defies all logic, but he pulled it off.
I'm certain that I'm not the only person who will think of the classic screen saver "Pipes" when they look at this abstract work by builder Legobird3. There's something very satisfying about this piece, it's simple, yet the intersecting pipes add a layer of complexity that draws you in. I'd much rather see these in ABS than in OpenGL.
I was lucky enough to see these adorable award winning little guys in person at BricksLA. Builder Miro Dudas brought so much character to each of these little animals they seem ready to scamper off. They're all loaded with clever building, but my favorite detail has to be the raccoon's hands.
It never fails to amaze me what a simple seed part can inspire. This magical MOC depicting the undersea world of Disney's The Little Mermaid all stems from the black fan you see on Tritan's tail. That's the seed part in this round of the ABS Builder Challenge, and that's all builder Nuju Metro needed to inspire all of this.
