My old buddy Thorsten Bonsch, in honor of the story of Akira, set in the year 2019, has come up with this stunning scene: Off to the Containment Unit. A real pioneer of the genre, Akira was the first widely distributed serious Japanese Anime in Europe and North America, unlike the usual Saturday morning cartoons for kiddies (still love Tranzor Z, though). Click on the images to see all those tasty greebles up close. Awesome!
Any time I hear "Queen of hearts" two things happen: I think of the character from Disney's animated classic Alice in Wonderland (not the Burton film, she was just weird) and that terrible song (which will now be stuck in my head the rest of the damn day). I would really like to shift those things to this imposing but beautiful lady by builder LegoWyrm, I'd much rather think of her. Of course we'll have to wait and see (fingers crossed). But for now, the terrible song continues in my skull...
Legendary animation company Studio Ghibli is no more, but from the ashes arose Studio Ponoc, and their first feature is Mary and the Witch's Flower, based on the book The Little Broomstick. Builder Ochre Jelly was so enamored he built this tribute, and if the movie is half as charming as this MOC, I must seek it out.
I'm totally loving this micro chibi Yamato by builder delayice. I'm sure the first instinct you'd have with this thing approaching in space is "awww", but as soon as it unleashed it's arsenal on you you'd quickly change your tune. But even in the panic you'd still be stifling a smile, it's just too darned cute.
According to builder LegoWyrm Saber~Alter is the evil persona of Artoria Pendragon (a.k.a. Saber), who is the most popular character (and a 1st class cash cow) from the Fate series by Type-Moon. I'm sure that means something to some of you, but I'm just looking at this stunning figure and going "wow".
There can be no other explanation for it. Look at all these pictures, a Friends figure appears in each one, that's evidence enough. Of course, you have to admire the quality of the builds, they're all phenomenal, but that's besides the point. Clearly something has happened to my friend, I fear he may have wandered into an apparently abandoned amusement park and is being forced to build these MOCs in order to free himself. I hope he's done before BrickCon.
