Just last week we blogged a coin-op rocket ride at minifig scale, now builder redfern1950s2 is here with a large scale one, with motion! It's not motorized (yet) but even hand cranked you can see that this thing would be a wild ride. What kid wouldn't want to waste a quarter in this baby? Even if it probably meant wasting lunch too.
Grant Davis is leading the charge. . . This happens to be the first build I have seen from the Last Jedi trailer, and it's an excellent model indeed. The new resistance vehicles are seen skimming across the surface of Crait towards a battle with the First Order. Though we have very limited footage of these new vehicles, Grant was able to build a model that is easily recognizable, even if it didn't have the iconic dust behind it. This is one of the things I knew we would see multiple versions of in LEGO, because most of the other footage from the trailer is just scenes with a few characters. I was also planning to build this craft, but I may hold off, because we have this awesome representation!
Jason at JK Brickworks is back with another nifty MOC that has your best interests at heart. This one isn't kinetic, but sci-fi and Kubrick fans will recognize HAL from 2001: A Space Odyssey. HAL is brought to life by the Pfx Brick, featuring light and sound. They're in the final push on their Kickstarter and need your help. You can also find instructions to build your own HAL here.
Is there anything more inviting than a tree house? Admit it, you see one, you just want to climb up and hang out (unless you're afraid of heights, or squirrels or something I suppose). I can say I've never had the opportunity to spend any time in a quality tree house, but I've always wanted to, especially if it was as awesome as this MOC by Tim Schwalfenberg. I'm not sure how much I'd trust that bridge, or that bee hive, but I desperately want to visit this place.
As is usual with a comic related post, I've never ready Preacher, nor have I seen the TV show based on the comic. But I do appreciate a good character build, and this busts by Vitreolum are fantastic. Of course I did a little googling just to see who we're talking about and they're pretty much perfect.
The description of this impressive beast of a MOC by Benjamin Cheh is "Surveillance and Target Acquisition" but judging by the armament on this thing, it's more than capable of target annihilation as well. I would love to see this thing walking...just not in real life, towards me, I don't ever want to see that.
Superman has probably never been edgier (see what I did there?) than in this cool cubist version by builder Amida Na. The man of steel is a man of bricks, and I think he looks pretty super. Now some may debate that everything in LEGO is cubist, or even say that this isn't cubism at all (art is so subjective) but no one can deny that this is pretty awesome.
