If there’s a more poignant image of the pending global predicament we’ve managed to heap upon ourselves I don’t know what it is (besides most of the Jersey Shore under water maybe, stay tuned). I live about 100 feet above sea level, and when I bought this home 20 years ago I didn’t think it may become beach front property some day (ok, it won’t, but I’m lucky I live 11 miles from the beach).

The king of cars is back! After a nearly two year hiatus, builder Lino M is back, and back with a vengeance. Check out this badass version of the Volkswagen Käfer Racer, a Hotwheels classic. It’s part beetle, part dragster and all speed.
With a delicious bowl of KakarikO’s thanks to the endless creativity of Julius von Brunk. A warning though, it may be a bit unsettling for the hardcore Zelda fans to see Link so…loquacious, but it’s funny and charming and it was a ton of work. Watch the video below.
The king of sky-fi and air superiority Jon Hall is back with another aviation treat. This is the P-65 Tomahawk, part Corsair, part Bussard and all badass. I can just imagine the sound of one of these, it’s single prop slicing through the air as it’s engine roared. I can also imagine a whole sortie of these, it would be awe inspiring.
Check out this bad boy from builder Marco Marozzi. I don’t know if mechanized combat like this is in our future, but it seems pretty inevitable. After all, if you look around today, it’s all the technology we dreamed of in the mid century (and way beyond in some aspects). I know one thing though, the battlefields of the future will be pretty terrifying.
Builder Eero Okkonen is back with a ravishingly lovely figure from Magic the Gathering. This is the Wanderer, who according to Eero is “a mysterious individual with a habit of planeswalking from world to world slaying monsters and enemies with her decently-sized sword.”
