Star-Lord, Man. Legendary Outlaw!

Brickatecture returns, unveiling his brand new wearable Star-Lord / Peter Quill helmet after 3 months of hard work. This model is 100% LEGO, 100% wearable, and 100% awesome. The helmet itself barely seems LEGO, especially with all the fine hair detailing that went into this model. All of the time and parts that went into this creation sure seems to have paid off! Make sure to follow Brickatecture for more amazing life size LEGO replicas!

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

I'm Hooked On a Feeling, Star-Lord

Jammin' while building a device to jam with. Vaionaut designed Star-Lord's tape player, and item from Peter's past that he can not part with. I love the headset portion, using some flexible tubing and clever curves used to construct the speaker areas. The main body of the player is also very clean and is cleverly incorporating the dark blue and light gray. I have only seen one other LEGO version of this player, but this is a bit better in my opinion. Nicely done!

"So We're Saving The Galaxy Again?"

Just following the release of the wonderful Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Tyler Clites has posted a great model of the Milano. I'm still fond of the set released along the original film, but this one is undoubtedly more well-fit to minifigure scale, and it's got some lovely shaping on the edges. To top that all off, Tyler has also made a video sharing some extra details and techniques which went into this build, be sure to check it out!

I Am Groot, I Am Groot. I Am Groot!

I am Groot, I am Groot, I am Groot. I am Groot! I am Groot. . .

Thank you for telling us a little bit about yourself, Groot. I'll take it from here. Markus Rollb├╝hler is clearly excited to see our favorite baby tree in existence on the big screen! Now, this little figure of Groot is excellent, especially the shaping of the head, and those cute little eyes. I think the sand green was a nice color choice, even when mixed with the olive green. I also really love the control device, with those buttons and levers. My only question is, who has the tape? Not a single person has tape? I think we should put some tape over the death button.

I am Groot!

The Orb

Fans of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy should recognize the MacGuffin of the film, the Orb, an ancient and mysterious artifact of unspeakable power. Everybody wants it (at least until they know what it is) and Ronan will stop at nothing to possess it. Builder buriedbybricks masterfully recreates the prop in brick form. The use of the Death Star halves here, as well as the fiber optics, is inspired.
