Geek Chic - Fabulous Furniture

LeTranger Absurde brings us this delightful set of office furniture! The scale is quite deceptive, I'm not normally one to get excited about furniture (my wife loves cushions and mirrors) but this really tickled my fancy.  I love those micro star wars vehicles on the desk ahd the inclusion of minifigs as dolls is a delight. I also really admire the details of the wood panels that fabulous lampshade. Why not swing by and take a look LeTranger's photostream it's abound with delights!

The Pilgrim

Vince Toulouse has come up with a fascinating character here using some parts from a Gladiator set.  Since I'm completely unfamiliar with that particular theme, I wasn't sure if this creation was even LEGO.  But it is!  And certainly alien, although at the same time, with a familiar purposeful determination.  I can't wait to read the book!

Zaintiraris Chamber

Have you ever got to any point in any game where you thought, "I should have saved", yeah, of course you have. Play any game for long enough and you'll get a better feel for when you might be in peril, or just pay attention to the giant weapons, numerous sharp objects and remains of previous hapless adventurers and perhaps get a hint? The question is, what did you do Xenomurphy?

'Ice to See This Starfighter

The 2002 theme of Ice Planet inspired Sylon-tw to craft this spaceship that I'm sure could skate right through your planet's atmosphere. Though this little ship is compact, it looks like it would be pretty fast, zooming through the sky, patrolling the arctic area (or wherever it's been assigned). The intakes for the engine positioned on each side add a lot to the model, as well as the use of the fairly new cockpit/slope element in translucent orange. If you're in a cold environment, keep an eye out for this guy!

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
