I have no idea what the genesis of this is. From a comic, from builder 2nd Life Bricks' imagination? I don't know, or care really, because it's awesome. And I could totally see Red Skull barreling down the highway in this beast, I like to imagine with classical music playing on the stereo (very loudly to be heard over that massive engine). Hail Hydra!
Builder dvdliu has an interesting thought experiment. What if xenomorphs (the aliens in the Alien movies) developed developed a civilized and "normal" lifestyle? Well, here's a peek at what that might look like, and it's sort of dreary. Yes, I wouldn't wish a desk job, especially wearing a tie, on anyone...or anything.
I do love a peek "behind the scenes", and that's what builder Missing Brick is giving us. Welcome to the set of This Week, a BBC political discussion show with hosts Andrew Neil and his guests Michael Portillo and Diane Abbott. But who cares about those people, we're really tuning in to see Molly the dog.
The addition of the large dome and quarter round parts has made for some very interesting builds. Their use in spaceships and buildings has been great, but their use in sculptures and character builds has been amazing. We've seen builds of Obelix before, but I don't believe it's ever been captured quite so well as this bust by ZetoVince, it's fantastic.
I love Game of Thrones. I was a big fan of the books, and I'm a big fan of the series. I'm also a big fan of this outstanding recreation of Harrenhal and the pit where Brienne of Tarth fights the bear (I won't tell you how it turns out, we're not about spoilers here). This jaw-dropping MOC consists of over 20,000 bricks and it shows, it's positively loaded with detail and rich texture throughout. There's tons of pictures if you click through, and believe me, it's worth it.
This lovely interior by builder Heksu looks ready to accept guests for a party, all we need is some hors d'oeuvres and a pianist and we're all set for some juicy gossip on the Rockefellers. The attention to detail is subtle here, and that's what makes it work so well. The chair rail, the paneled door, the crown molding, the chandelier, it's all understated, but adds up to a very elegant room. And of course the piano is just perfect. I want to spend some time here, it's very inviting.
