I'm a big Stranger Things fan, and I'm not alone. Something about that creative story telling infused with some serious 80's feels resonated with a lot of people, and the show was a runaway hit. Builder Casey M is a fan, in fact he's got an ongoing Stranger Things display for Brickworld, and this excellent collection of Brickheadz is just part of it.
Having recently joined the half century club, I can sort of relate to this MOC by builder tankm. Not that I'm using a cane yet, but I'm certainly not in the fresh flush of youth any more. According to the builder this is a future self portrait, and I think it's wonderful. We should all imagine ourselves enjoying beautiful places in the winter of our lives.
Humans have always envied birds. For as long as we've been looking up, we've been longing to take to the skies. Thankfully, we were clever enough to figure out how, and flying airplanes is now the aspiration. Like this little one by builder tankm, we can all dream of flight, and the dream is within reach.
I mostly took a day off yesterday (I say mostly because I rarely take a whole day off) and just hung out with Mrs BrickNerd. We even took a little time to build the Belle and Beast Brickheadz. And then today I see that Swan Dutchman has built two characters from one of Mrs BrickNerd's all time favorite movies, The Little Mermaid, so I just had to share. Here is Ariel and Ursula, done to perfection.
Saturday mornings were a big deal when I was a kid (yeah, WAY back then). Kids today can't understand the struggle that was kid friendly television back then. We waiting all week for some decent TV, and you can bet we weren't going to miss it. Scooby Doo was a big part of that, and we looked forward to the adventures of Scooby and the gang. Builder BRICK 101 understands how important these two are, and has immortalized them in Brickheadz form. Not only that, but he shows how to build them in this video, check it out.
It's been a while since I've seen characters from World of Warcraft. I've never played myself, but my boys dedicated no small amount of their lives to this game not that long ago. I did see the movie, but like the other non players in the audience, we were all going "huh? who? what?" These are members of the Horde by builder YOS Bricks, namely Cairne Bloodhoof, leader of Thunder Bluff, Vol'jin, chieftain of the Darkspear tribe and Rexxar, champion of the Horde.
