The kitchen is the heart of the home, I’m sitting in mine at this very moment (most of the blog posts happen right here in my kitchen/breakfast nook). It’s where we prepare meals, and where every party seems to end up, probably because the food is there. Builder MarcelV was challenged by the fine humans at New Elementary to come up with some innovative uses for the Brickheadz glasses part, can you spot them in this excellent interior? OK, that was easy, now look for the other pair.
This is one of those MOCs that just keeps giving. The kind you have to view in high resolution to truly appreciate. The amount of detail and clever part use in this relatively small diorama by builder roΙΙi is pretty astounding, everywhere you look there's something unique or just fun happening. Do yourself a favor and click through to see the largest version of this, it's worth it.
I'm not sure if I'm breaking policy here. In general BrickNerd doesn't feature politics or religion, yet according to the description by builder Pate-keetongu the good reverend here is "Man of faith, force and a circular saw hat." He's also positively dashing, and it's my blog, so I'll do what I want. And before you stare puzzled for too long, yes, those are big fig arms as his chest, some impressive NPU.
One of the things I look forward to when a new part starts getting a buzz (totally meant to do that) is seeing how builders will take advantage of it. This is the first time I've seen the new bee hive part in clever use, as the abdomen of this bee by builder Grantmasters, but I'm sure it's not the last.
Builder simply bricking it posed a fun challenge when they posted this nifty pub interior. There's a lot of pretty cool techniques and part use here, and the builder has tasked us with finding...
1) Pirate's Rope Bridge.
2) Friend's Lipsticks
3) Minifigure Drills.
4) Scala Benches
5) Minifigure Sweeping Brushes
I wouldn't suggest trying it here with this low resolution picture, but click through for a fun challenge.
Tiny, little buffalos roaming a prairie. Another wonderfully creative model from Grantmasters, with a rather unique parts usage that adds just the right amount of texturing and shaping to these animals. What's even more impressive is the fact that he was able to get the shaping and include the horns for these beasts, not an easy task for this miniature style. However, thanks to Chima, he was able to accomplish this task!
