Lord of the Rings fans should recognize this, it's the White City, Minas Tirith in the realm of Gondor. This build by Swan Dutchman is technically a micro build, but when it's of a subject on this scale, even in micro it's a huge undertaking. According to Koen it took about 6 months and is composed of over 11,500 parts! Just look at all the detail, it's amazing.
Scout troopers, and their mode of transportation, have always been a favorite of mine, and this custom Technic figure from builder Fifth line caught my attention immediately. The comically oversized headgear of minifigures isn't nearly as apparent until you see them on a Technic figure looking pretty much in proportion huh?
Battle Royale is the hotness right now. I've played a few rounds, and while I wouldn't necessarily call myself the "best" (the highest I ranked was #19), it's still a lot of fun. DR.Church recreated the iconic Battle Bus from the game, and it looks fantastic. The big, Lowell Sphere-esque balloon is wonderful. Where we droppin', boys?
Who doesn't love mecha? This MOC from Lu Sim is gorgeous. I dig the suit-of-armor aesthetic, and the use of the translucent castle door piece as a laser sword is a stroke of genius. He looks like he's ready to square off against a mecha-dragon and save the mecha-princess (OK, I may have taken this analogy a bit too far).
When I first looked at this wonderful MOC by LEGO 7 I thought it was an official set, and that got me wondering, what made me think that? Is it the building style? The photography? I realize that even years after looking at LEGO creations every day I still don't totally understand the intangible, specific nuances that make an official set look like an official set. What do you think?
I have no idea what the genesis of this is. From a comic, from builder 2nd Life Bricks' imagination? I don't know, or care really, because it's awesome. And I could totally see Red Skull barreling down the highway in this beast, I like to imagine with classical music playing on the stereo (very loudly to be heard over that massive engine). Hail Hydra!
