Purple Rod

There's a moment in every hot rod builder's project where the decision has to be made, what color? In the real world this can be put off and agonized over for most of the project, and consequently make or break it. Imagine having spent years building a car, only to screw it up at the last minute with a terrible paint job. In the LEGO world, that decision has to happen quite early, and can also have dire consequences. Depending on color, finding the parts you need can be quite challenging. So I'm always impressed with a rare color choice, and this purple beast by builder redfern1950s2, is a real eye catcher. Of course purple isn't as rare as it used to be, but it's still very limited in part choice, which makes this hot rod all the more impressive.

Yuru Camp

While my new Airstream has fundamentally changed how I camp, I spent the first half century of my life tent camping. I've always enjoyed adding a bit of separation between myself and the real world and decompressing while "roughing it" (and of course eating camp food). These adorable figures based on the comic Yuru Camp by MikeVd are getting away from it all, and I have to admit I'm just a little jealous.

Bayonetta

Hey boys and girls! It's time for another round of "Games that Tommy has never heard of!" Yes, I've never played, or actually even heard of Bayonetta. We'll just have to add it to the growing list of games that have eluded me but inspire insanely cool MOCs like this one from builder Umm, Who? I don't know what's going on or who's who (or what) but it's a feast for the eyes.
