Jungle Jam

Brothers Isaac and John Snyder are working on another project focused on the old Adventurers LEGO theme.  "John and I decided to do a collab series based around re-imagining old set themes. Adventurers is a theme we’ve liked for years, though we never had any of the sets."  This particular module by Isaac S. is a wonderful representation of ancient ruins that have been swallowed by the ever-growing wilderness.  LEGO jungle creations have always intrigued me.  Perhaps it's because it allows for the builder to dump as much forestry as they want onto the terrain.  The more overgrown, the better!  As Isaac demonstrates here, you also can mix different colors together for the growth which can add more depth.  The beauty of this creation speaks for itself, but something else I admire is that it's just as heavily detailed on every side.  Check out the build, but don't get lost out there!  Bring a machete with you.

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
