An Ace Build

Tim Lydy, the LEGO Builder of Gotham City, built an incredible scene containing acid, yet will not burn you (for it is too awesome).  A place of chemicals, a place of origin. . .Ace Chemicals is famous in the world of Batman, mostly for what it didn't produce intentionally.  That's right, Ace Chemicals is where the Joker became disfigured in a dramatic fight with the Caped Crusader.  This recreation is detailed to another level entirely.  Covered in so many styles of greebling, it's hard to find any simple, standard bricks in the walls.  Take a minute and zoom in to really appreciate all the detail packed into this build.  Careful not to fall in, though!

ACE, "The Chemical Place"

Nathaniel Stoner

     My name is Nathaniel Stoner, and I am an very active LEGO builder.  I mostly build in the themes of castle and science-fiction, but I also dabble in other genres and create occasional random MOC's (My Own Creations). 

     When I was younger, I would get and build small LEGO sets for my birthday, but I was never really into them.  When they fell apart, I would become frustrated attempting to put them back together and would throw them in a box in my closet.  I couldn't stand them!

     Then, miraculously, I became addicted to the LEGO brick later in my teen years.  Ever since, I have continued to build up (pun intended) my collection of bricks and to expand my knowledge of techniques and building skills.  LEGO is truly more than a toy, its an art form and a way to express yourself.

     For the most part, I collect LEGO Star Wars (mainly the minifigs), which is probably my favorite LEGO theme.  I have a fairly decent collection, including some of the original 1999 sets, such as the Snowspeeder, X-Wing, and Naboo starfighter.  I also collected LEGO the Lord of the Rings when those sets first came out.  The minifigs are great, and the story remains one of my favorites ever. 

     My hope is to inspire other young (and perhaps even older) LEGO builders to unleash their inner creativity!  You can find me on my Flikr here
