Things might have gone differently in so many situations if R2-D2 had his own mech like this one from M<0><0>DSWIM. Tuskin Raiders? No Problem. Fell in a swamp? No problem. Stormtroopers? No Problem. Battle of Yavin? Ok, fitting him in the back of an X-Wing might have been a small problem, but I'm guessing this baby has flight capabilities, so no problem!
Some day I suspect we'll have colossal ships like this one from builder I Scream Clone roaming the galaxy and beyond (if we don't blow ourselves up first). I have to wonder what the men and women on these journeys will experience, what they will see and do. And if any of them will fight a Gorn just outside of Santa Clarita...I mean another planet.
Nintendo and Kirby fans should recognize this little artist, it's Adeleine! She's the adorable young artist with the pretty handy ability to make her paintings come to life. Can you imagine having the same ability with bricks? She's been in may Kirby titles, and hopefully will be making an appearance in Star Allies soon.
No, not that Saturn, this one, the steam powered tug. It was the last one to see active duty in Germany until 1979, and now it's been artfully recreated by builder koffiemoc. The real Saturn has been restored and is residing in the Rostock Shipping Museum. This brick-built one is so well done it deserves a place right by it's side.
It takes one look at a classic Coca-Cola machine, a vintage radio or even a gas pump to see how we as humans used to really care about aesthetics. While modern design can be nice, a truly beautiful item is rare these days, and always celebrated, which makes me wonder why there isn't more beautiful stuff? Builder Norton74 gets it, and has crafted this vintage gas pump, which served a simple purpose, and looked good doing it.
Any kid that owned a Gameboy in the late 90's (so let's face it, most) recognizes these guys, it's the trainers from Pokemon Red and Blue, the ubiquitous monster catching role-playing game. It gives me great pleasure to present these as they come from a builder you might have heard of, Mr Kevin Hinkle himself. It's good to see you dabbling with the bricks Kevin.
