Eat Your Carrots!

Ever hear the myth that eating lots of carrots will improve your eyesight?  Or maybe your parents told you this in order to make sure you ate your vegetables?  Well, builder Milan Sekiz has heard the myth before, and he has put a unique twist on the concept!  Milan has this to say about his newest creation: "On a planet similar to ours, these guys worship carrots for obvious reasons. They use strange mechas to harvest carrots from obelisks after worship ritual."  I find this build very creative and amusing.  I love the little alien creatures, but my favorite part (and probably the main focus of the build) is that gorgeous mech.  The colors are perfect, and it's a very slick design.  Wonderful work!  Now go eat your vegetables, kids.

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
