I've always been a huge Far Side fan. And when you combine LEGO and Gary Larson, you cannot help but WIN. This MOC by vitreolum perfectly illustrates this fact, combining mad skills, comic humor clever part use to not only make another entry for Iron Builder, but also for MOCathalon. That's a whole lot of WIN.
Say what you will about Corpse Bride, it may not have and the charm or lasting power of Nightmare Before Christmas, but it's still a stunning achievement in stop motion animation. Now builder CASTOR-TROY has created the main characters in brick form. Not only that, but he recreated the poster from the film, brilliant!
Yes, I know I don't cover enough Technic on this site, I have no excuse. But you're in luck, because this beast by NKubate is too awesome not to share. This thing looks fast, very fast. From bottom to top and front to back it's clearly built for speed. And lets face it, the gull wing doors just look cool when you pull up to valet parking at the hottest restaurant in town.
I don't know about the practicality of bipedal mechs, but I sure do find them fascinating, especially when they break the mold. This unconventional walker is from Vince_Toulouse, and it's a big, green beauty. And when I say big, I mean it. That little yellow figure head you see there, that's a Technic figure, this thing is huge! And I'll award meaningless plus points for clever use of Galidor parts, just 'cause.
The stage is set for another battle royale as 6kyubi6 and vitreolum square off for another epic Iron Builder. The seed part this time around is the pitchfork (how insideous!) but I don't see these two builders backing down to the challenge. Let's all sit back and enjoy the carnage for the next month!
Much has been written on the subject, but this is a serious matter so I will also contribute to the knowledge base: Clowns are terrifying. Even this clown, expertly built from a beloved children's toy and carefully photographed, is terrifying. I'm sure builder Djokson meant no harm and his intentions were completely benevolent, but still, this thing is terrifying.
I can tell by looking at these pics that they just don't do this magnificent MOC by Derfel Cadarn justice. Perhaps someday I'll get back to England and I can see some of his excellent builds in person. Until then I'll just have to make do with these pictures. Just look at that texture work and all the complex angles on this, amazing.
I spent a lot of time building scale models as a kid. One that I vividly remember was called Flap Jack by Monogram. I don't know why, but this latest radical aircraft by Jon Hall reminds me of that. But even if it didn't I think I'd be smitten with this master of the skies. I can't decide if I love the bulbous gun turret, the double ended counter rotating props or the gull wings the best. Or maybe the graphics or the cockpit. Then again it might be the cowl...
