Bond, James Bond

While adult me finds the womanizing and chauvinistic overtones a bit unsettling (we’ve come so far, sort of) I’m still a bond fan. And while this piece by JS_Ninjnerd depicts MI6’s most infamous agent as a silhouette, I’m choosing to see him as my personal favorite Bond, Sean Connery. And admit it, the theme song is in your head now huh? It’s in mine, and it’s totally agreeable.

Bond with the Bondmobile

The Aston Martin DB 5 is a luxury car used by the infamous movie character James Bond.  The Incinerator14 designed a nice replica of the iconic British vehicle.  Accurate cars are not as easy to build as some make it seem, especially executing some significant curves like on the front of this model.  Obviously, Bond had some special modifications to his vehicle, but as far as I am aware this LEGO version appears to only be a standard Ashton Martin.  Either way, any minifig driving this sporty car will be cruising in style. . .

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

Largo's Lair

Oh Largo...You've got a sweet pad in the Bahamas (seen here perfectly recreated by Mark of Falworth), an awesome yacht and a bitchin' hydrofoil. You seem to have it made, why did you have to go stealing nuclear bombs and threatening everybody? You could have spent your remaining years lounging in luxury, now you've got 007 on your trial...good luck with that.

Wet Nellie

I don't recall if I went to see The Spy Who Loved Me at the theater or not, It came out the same year as Star Wars and I did see a lot of movies back then. What I do recall is watching Bond climb into this lovely machine and speed away, and the collective jaw-drop as it turned into a sub later in the film. That was the very first time I remember seeing a car on screen and thinking "oh I gotta have me one of those". It's still one of my favorite 007 moments, and now it's one of my favorite MOC moments thanks to EROL.
