Hyrule Ruins

Me: Didn’t I just post a cool Zelda MOC a few days ago?

Also me: Yeah, what of it?

I really can’t get enough of Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, and this little bit of scenery from Hyrule by builder speedyhead has me questioning my need to get to the studio this morning so soon. Maybe just a little exploring first? Yeah, that’s a good idea.

Paddy Wagon

A large portion of my childhood was dedicated to the construction of plastic model kids. I had lots of favorites, the Aurora monster kits for instance, but the ones that really stand out were the Tom Daniel hotrods from Monogram. I built them all, some more than once. So this brilliant rendition of Paddy Wagon by Norton74 is a huge nostalgia rush for me. The detail is amazing, and there’s so much shiny I can’t stand it (I think I have an additional chrome-osome…get it?)

Cornucopia

I know I’m a VFX geek, I’ve come to terms with that. Even though I’ve spent the last 30 years working on movies, I’m still a total spaz for it. So my first instinct when I saw this awesome cargo ship by ZCerberus wasn’t a desire to swoosh it and wasn’t a desire to make the cannons go “pew pew”, it was to mount it on a pylon in front of a green screen and do some motion control shots. What’s wrong with me?

Link's House

The Legend of Zelda is totally my jam, and Breath of the Wild is an absolute masterpiece. I’ve been playing it since it came out over two and a half years ago and I’m still loving it. In fact I finished it on Wii U, then I got a Switch for father’s day and started all over again, I love it. So seeing this perfectly rendered rendition of Link’s house from builder Boba-1980 makes my nerd heart sing. It’s even got an interior where Link can rest and admire his weapon collection, brilliant.

Tortooga

I know what you are all thinking, this isn’t from Pirates of the Caribbean?!? No, it’s not, and as the kids say these days you got click-baited. I’m kidding! Tortooga is actually the name Klikstyle gave to this wonderful little turtle from a fantasy world. Although part of me is thinking about how adorable it is, there’s always that other part of me that wonders what it tastes like. But I’m sure with sharp spines and a shell like that it’s safe from my flimsy hands, for now.
