Yes, the Super Bowl is tomorrow, and while you're arranging your chip bowls and getting ready to grill burgers join us live while we build Mixels Series 4. It'll be a way better pre game than the NFL can do, there's only so much Terry Bradshaw and Budweiser commercials you can take you know. We'll start at 11am PST, see you then!
Wow! This is the stuff of movies and science fiction. Like The Iron Giant and Pacific Rim, this very large MOC of a very large mech is eye-popping and jaw-dropping. I love everything about this, the color selection, the techniques, the pose, the photography and especially the character. I want to know his story and see him in action.
I don't know how much of the mechanization of this way cool steampunk owl from madLEGOman is functional, and that's part of the brilliance of this build. It's apparently inspired by set 70164 Hurricane Heist but for me the transformation is complete. And I have to say, this is heads and tails (see what I did there?) above the set.
I didn't read a lot of comics as a kid, but when I did it was usually Iron Man. This sculpt by builder nobu_tary has a striking pose and hits all the right comic book notes. You can practically hear Tony Stark inside the suit saying "I am Iron Man!"
Builder 6Kyubi6 and his friends have started a sort of "phone game" where they are sending MOCs to each other and the next person has to build on that inspiration. This was the result from getting this plane from builder Pistash (which I understand didn't fair well in the mail, bummer). I can't wait to see where this all goes.
Oh Kirby, you lovable lump of whatever you are. Through it's many years Nintendo has brought many iconic characters to life in it's games, but few are so simultaneously cute and baffling as Kirby. What kid hasn't been playing Kirby Air Ride just to be interrupted by a visiting relative and tried to explain what Kirby is (and failed to really do so). Here's a quick tip when grandma asks "What is Kirby?": Just hit pause, look her dead in the eyes and say "pink", then it's game on. This rendition by Swan Dutchman totally captures...whatever he is.
Ah, I remember when I had time to play video games, those were the days. But just because I don't have time to play doesn't mean I can't appreciate brilliant game design, and brilliant MOCs. This tribute to one of the most lusciously dark and beautiful games in recent years, Limbo, captures it's unique look perfectly. The use of varying shades of grey here is inspired, and works perfectly to simulate the dark and foggy world.
