LEGO 1936 Mercedes-Benz 500K Special Roadster

Engineering, design, and technology are always evolving, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they get better. Because I can’t see anything to improve upon with Firas Abu-Jaber’s latest creation: the 1936 Merc 500K. It may not do 0-60 in 2.9 seconds. It probably doesn’t have Apple Car Play, either. And don’t even ask about miles to the gallon. But when it comes to timeless style and craftsmanship, this car is hard to beat, in both metal and LEGO. Nicely done, Firas!

I've Got The Jam Box, You Got The Cardboard?

As I’ve confessed before on this blog, I used to breakdance, and not to brag but I was pretty good. So clearly I was a kid of the 80’s, when the portable stereo, boom box, jam box or whatever you called it was king. And I have to admit I have a soft spot for these little icons, like this one from builder Cha Mi. So let’s crank up the Twilight 22, I’ve got some poppin’ and lockin’ to do.

And One Brick In Its Time Plays Many Parts

Enter Adult Fan of LEGO

The works of Shakespeare are a huge nerdom, 37 plays and 154 Sonnets that have survived since the early 1600’s. Likely you have come across at least one of his plays in high school if you grew up in the English speaking parts of the world, and his plays have been adapted in to many other works: 10 Things I Hate About You is The Taming of the Shrew; The Lion King strongly parallels Hamlet; Forbidden Planet is The Tempest (my favorite play); West Side Story and a host of others pull from Romeo and Juliet. Karen Metz has captured scenes from 19 of Shakespeare’s plays in her interpretation of the James Christensen painting “Shakespearean Fantasy.” Karen has expertly captured some very famous scenes, but as with the painting, some are a bit more subtle or from some of the less performed works. She incorporates movement and music into some of the scenes. She’s posted a lot of pictures and exploring all of the them are quite rewarding.

The Last Supper

If the bible is any indication one of the characters in this MOC by builder kloou is going to betray Batman. But with this assortment, how in the world could we figure out who that might be? It’s pretty much a who’s who of villains that would just love to betray the dark knight. At least we can be sure of one thing, Penguin is going to absolutely destroy that pie.


Bro, do you even lift? For an effective work out, try the patented “Broly System”, you’ll be jacked in no time. It starts with a brief but effective exile to planet Vampa, followed by a high protein, low carb diet. Daily workouts include sparring with Vegeta and Goku, as well as numerous crunches. I have absolutely no idea what the heck I’m talking about, but check out this totally buff figure by builder 莫古.
