Check out this tricked-out Metro van by our old pal Firas Abu-Jaber. It has all the features you'd expect, like a flip up window, opening back door, sliding side door, and removable roof. But what you might not expect in such a vehicle is that it's sits on some seriously wicked rims. It's also been lowered in the front, like it was designed for a drag race... So, Firas, what's under the hood?
Well this is a nice coincidence! This morning I was building while listening to the new, remastered version of Radiohead's classic album OK Computer (which turns 20 this year!) I check Flickr and Anthony Wilson has remade the iconic album cover in bricks. And he totally nailed it. Great MOC, great album.
A very popular knight is returning home, to his wonderfully crafted village built by Guy Smiley. We love seeing beautiful and complete LEGO scenes here at BrickNerd, and this scene fits that category. This scene seems to show so much, yet little at the same time. It's very nicely designed and captured by the builder. It also showcases simple techniques to create realistic medieval structures and details. Nicely done!
An appropriate time for a recreation of a lunar module, done by Sad Brick. I think what I love about this overall scene is the terrain. It's not just studs, or SNOT bricks. Using 1x1 round tiles adds such a nice texture. The module itself is also wonderfully done, and stands out amongst other models I have seen. Quite a nice view in this photo!
Brickworld 2017! This year, the VLUG crew conspired to produce a LEGO version of the hit TV series Game of Thrones, or, as we call it, Brick of Thrones. I was informed that there are also books. Anyway, the basic inspiration for the collaboration came from the map of Westeros, featured during the introduction to each episode. As you scroll through the pictures, you'll see various landmarks, characters, and even the famous Battle of Blackwater Bay. From the Red Keep, to Castle Black, to white walkers, there's a lot to enjoy for fans of the show, and even for those who've never seen it. And no, for the umpteenth time, that's not Elsa.
To quote Han Solo, "I like this". It's one of the more unusual weapons of the Star Wars universe, the wookie bowcaster. And while it's very unconventional (is it a crossbow? what does the cable fire?) it's always been a favorite of mine, if only because it's what Chewbacca carries, and Chewbacca is awesome. A stellar prop recreation by builder Lego Admiral.
Hacim Bricks has taken it upon himself to recreate the Air Temples from the world of Avatar. Though I am not all that familiar with the story, I can recognize an excellent creation layout. After having previously completed his projects of the Northern and Southern Temples, and now this replica of the Eastern, Hacim hopes to finish the project by designing the Western Air Temple by this time next year. According to the builder, the majority of this build was done in just two days! Though it's not clear exactly how long this build took, that is still impressive. Well done!
No one can deny the beauty of an all-LEGO scene. Gid617 has spotted a castle ahead, perched on a hill above the forest. Excellently crafted with simple parts, this castle must be visible for miles. With its many towers and flags, it looks like this castle will stand the test of time. A lovely scene!
