I love this boat, if I was sure it wouldn't make totally barfy I'd love to be on it (but I would). But even more than the boat I love the presentation of it. With the whale intersecting the edge of the display it adds motion and interest, taking an already brilliant creation and elevating it to the next level. Well done Markus "Madstopper" Ronge.
I remember considering being an architect when I was young. I've always been interested in drawing and the nuts and bolts of how things come together, but I think it was because Mr. Brady had such a sweet home office (yeah, that Mr. Brady). This build by Anthony SÉJOURNÉ is exceptionally clean and tidy, makes me want to draft something.
TFDesigns has been rolling out some very interesting rover designs this month, including the one you see just below. This rover, for whatever reason, seems very playful to me (and certainly friendly). I think it's the choice of the bright colors that seem to call: "Come closer! I won't roll over you." This model also shows us that you don't need any truly specialty parts to make a solid rover, you just need a bit of creativity! Well done indeed!
When it comes to building starfighters these days, the stranger the better, as demonstrated here by dark-purple fan Chris Perron. Thanks to LEGO's Nexo Knights series, we have had several new curved elements introduced to the ever growing collection of our favorite plastic pieces. Several newer parts are used throughout this spacecraft, for example the dark purple curved panel elements that work miraculously well as...well...panels on this ship's body. Another great and unique starfighter to showcase here on BrickNerd, and I can't wait to see some more designs from Chris in the future!
While I might not be a big prequel fan, I did appreciate the podrace from Episode 1, and the video games that followed, and I really dig this latest creation by tkel86. It combines LEGO, Mindstorms and Star Wars to great effect, making an arcade game that l would absolutely love to try. Check out the video to see it in action, it's amazing.
The Pixar shorts have become practically as big a draw as the films they proceed. Through the years there have been many, but few have charmed me and made me laugh as much as For the Birds. Builder Yatkuu captures the essence of the mocking and bullying birds very well (don't worry, they get what's coming to them).
