Temple Lost in the Jungle

David Zambito is back with another unique build, adding to the creativity shown on his Flickr photostream. Jungle terrain isn't easy to replicate in LEGO. It'll either be too cluttered, or not have enough overgrowth. I think this terrain has been executed very well, and even went as far as adding a SNOT border around the edges to add to the terrain. The temple is beginning to be swallowed by jungle growth, but not too far that we can't recognize the nice design of the stonework and its layers.

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

Ancient Amphitheater

This very large and beautiful MOC of an ancient amphitheater is from Hardegon. I don't know the details of the build, there's no description, but I can only guess at how long this took to build. The stands are a little barren, apparently whatever show is running now isn't drawing much of a crowd. But I can only imagine the crowd that will surround this MOC if it ever goes on display. Click through for many more pictures.

When Minotaurs Attack...Tonight At 11

There's no description for this, nor is the name of the image particularly helpful, but it's a pretty stunning build. There's loads of detail on this MOC, everywhere you look. And some really cool and subtle (and not so subtle) architecture techniques. Click through to check out the larger image, it's worth it.
