...And pretty stinkin' adorable. It's Frankenstein's monster, by builder DOGOD Brick Design. Yes, I said Frankenstein's monster, it's not Frankenstein, that's the doctor that built him. Fun fact: he actually doesn't have a name. He refers to himself (yeah, he actually spoke) as "thy Adam", in a nod to the bible (first man, get it?) but this has never really been explored in the films. Then again he's also never referred to as "Monster" in the book, so we're all wrong.
Avast there me hearties, take ponder at this here MOC with yer good eye and I think you'll agree, LEGO 7 be a fine builder. It be Blackbeard, one of the most feared pirates sailing the seven seas. Just one look at him and me timbers be shivering.
Halloween is just 10 days away, and I spent part of the afternoon testing a pumpkin decoration rig. Moments later I discover this wonderful jack-o-lantern by Legohaulic on Flickr, and of course I had to blog it. I love this time of year, what spooky MOCs do you have planned?
I dig a good MOC that tells a story, and one based on a classic 80's movie is even better. Here we see Stripe taking advantage of a convenient water source to make some friends courtesy of builder LEGOMINDED. The use of the pom-poms here for pop up mogwais is pretty inspired, poor Gizmo.
Carter Witz recreated the stunning new lightsaber duel we saw in the Force Awakens. Excellent rockwork, with Rey positioned just over the edge as Starkiller Base splits apart. The trees made by Carter are also well done, though a tad skinny. I continue to see just how useful minifigure arms and hands can be to a wide range of creations. I also appreciate the base of this model, just the way the rockwork meets the blade border. Very sleek!
In 1999 the LEGO company and Lucasfilm came together to make what so many of us had dreamed of for years, LEGO Star Wars. All the kids of my generation had attempted at least a few times to make something from Star Wars in bricks, but now we could get official sets. The results were, and continue to be, phenomenal and prolific. So prolific in fact that it's become somewhat difficult to keep it all straight, but not anymore. Thanks to DK and The Brothers Brick's Chris Malloy and Andrew Becraft we now have the definitive guide to all things LEGO Star Wars, and it's glorious.Read More
I can't help but think the movie Ghostbusters would have been entirely different if the boys in gray were equipped with these babies. Builder chubbybots imagines Ghostbusting via mech, and the results are captivating. This is Ecto 4, 5 and 6, each equipped we assume with an unlicensed nuclear accelerator. Staypuft wouldn't have stood a chance against these.
Way back in October 1810, Crown Prince Ludwig got married to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen, and the whole of Munich turned out for the party, and they've been partying ever since. But humans started gathering for celebration with beer, food and friends long before that, and builder Ayrlego shows us what it looked like in medieval times (pretty much the same).
