Vroomy Vroomy, Smashy Smashy

What better way to show your excitement for the LEGO Porsche than to crash test it? The leading computer magazine in Germany, c't, ran a contest giving away one of these orange beauties, but they also crash tested one with the help of the German motor club ADAC. And by crash test I don't mean tossing off your balcony (I still get hate mail for that), they used an actual crash test facility and shot it from many, many angles with high speed cameras. The results are pretty epic.

Air Hockey

A new addition to Chris McVeigh's arcade game designs: air hockey! This is such a simple, but incredibly accurate and seemingly playable design! I really like that it's minifigure scale, too. Thanks to those new modified 1x1 round tiles with pegs, this design is even more complete. I'm looking forward to Chris' possible future designs and color combinations of these!

Coming Soon to Modular Arcade

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

A Peaceful Life Disturbed

"The work has stalled, I need you to come back."

In this scene, recreated from Rogue One by Inthert, Director Orson Krennic is attempting to convince Galen Erso to return to his work on Project Celestial Power after finding the Ersos on Lah'mu. This scene is instantly recognizable, with the interesting landscaping and of course the Death Troopers. I also really like the devices that Inthert created for this scene, like the moisture vaporator.
