Hei Hei

Widely regarded as the stupidest Disney animated character ever, Hei Hei the chicken from Moana was not only comic relief, but a subtle hero. Sure he's as dumb as the rocks he tends to eat, but as Moana herself pointed out his "strengths lie beneath the surface...deep beneath" and he was there at a critical moment to save the day. Builder LEGO 7 captures his vacant essence perfectly.

I'm Hooked On a Feeling, Star-Lord

Jammin' while building a device to jam with. Vaionaut designed Star-Lord's tape player, and item from Peter's past that he can not part with. I love the headset portion, using some flexible tubing and clever curves used to construct the speaker areas. The main body of the player is also very clean and is cleverly incorporating the dark blue and light gray. I have only seen one other LEGO version of this player, but this is a bit better in my opinion. Nicely done!

Nathaniel Stoner

     My name is Nathaniel Stoner, and I am an very active LEGO builder.  I mostly build in the themes of castle and science-fiction, but I also dabble in other genres and create occasional random MOC's (My Own Creations). 

     When I was younger, I would get and build small LEGO sets for my birthday, but I was never really into them.  When they fell apart, I would become frustrated attempting to put them back together and would throw them in a box in my closet.  I couldn't stand them!

     Then, miraculously, I became addicted to the LEGO brick later in my teen years.  Ever since, I have continued to build up (pun intended) my collection of bricks and to expand my knowledge of techniques and building skills.  LEGO is truly more than a toy, its an art form and a way to express yourself.

     For the most part, I collect LEGO Star Wars (mainly the minifigs), which is probably my favorite LEGO theme.  I have a fairly decent collection, including some of the original 1999 sets, such as the Snowspeeder, X-Wing, and Naboo starfighter.  I also collected LEGO the Lord of the Rings when those sets first came out.  The minifigs are great, and the story remains one of my favorites ever. 

     My hope is to inspire other young (and perhaps even older) LEGO builders to unleash their inner creativity!  You can find me on my Flikr here

Getting A Handle On Things

This one fooled me, I mean really fooled me. I looked at this thumbnail and thought "well, that's an unusual color for a door handle". Then stared at it for a second more and thought "I guess that's why they took a picture of it". Yes, I was so confused by the nature of the picture of a door handle that I failed to notice it was brick-built. Well played Grant, well played.
