Here at BrickNerd we like to look back from time to time, and to a galaxy far, far away. Way back in 2012, a full year before BrickNerd was even a thing, builder 2 Much Caffeine crafted this charming rendition of the Lars homestead, at the time of Luke's fateful meeting of R2-D2 and C3PO. It's small, but it's awesome.
Every once in a while here at BrickNerd we like to look back, just to see how far we've come. This Classic Commodore VIC 20 might look familiar to some of you old school computer users. There's an entire generation of early home computer adopters that made this their first computer. It was built by the Arvo brothers (yeah, those Arvo brothers) a decade ago.
Here at BrickNerd, we like to look back at some older, yet still excellent, models from time to time... Back in 2015, JBIronworks produced this awesome train engine that has always stood out to me among others that I have seen. I'm not quite sure why that is... Perhaps it's the sleekness of the engine? The nice railing that goes around the train for the engineers? Or perhaps it's just the shaping. According to the builder, this is indeed a real life engine, produced in 1972. I personally would not have known if it was a real engine or something that the builder chose to make up, unless he had specifically stated in his image description. Whether it was real or fake, it's still a gorgeous engine model to me!
Here at BrickNerd, we like to occasionally look back at past creations from the community. . .Especially when it includes seeing your favorite troublemaking birds made out of LEGO. To me, it seems that the popular Angry Birds has still remained so to this day. Waaaaay back in 2012, Iain Heath created perfect little models for 3 of the iconic feathered beasts and 1 green ball of bacon. Now all we need is a slingshot and some wooden planks...
As the holidays approach us, we often reflect on events of the year. Here at BrickNerd, we're taking a look at some classic past Christmas MOC's.
For this post, Chris McVeigh's popular "Brick Sketches" were chosen as a holiday blast from the past. Check out these joyful characters! Happy holidays to all, and all build on!
