The Sci-fi City of Oz

Built for Brickworld Chicago 2018, Hacim Bricks made this awesome sci-fi city that is purely the definition of greebles, but greebling used to great and powerful effect. I was fortunate enough to see the very start of this build last year, but I never fully imagined how big or cool this would turn out once it was brought to completion by its builder! As to be expected with any creation like this, there are many small parts used in creative ways. What's your favorite use?!

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

T-nex Goes Chomp Chomp!

Built for a Rebrick contest, Anthony Wilson has found a way to make Nexo Knights cool (which I didn't think was entirely possible until now). Just look at this sculpture...it's absolute menacing, fun, and creative all at the same time. (Didn't think that was possible either.) I really like the design of this robotic dinosaur, with a very sleek and efficient concept throughout its design. Even the display base is worth mentioning, which is truly the finishing touch that this model needed. Excellent work! I hope to see more Nexo Knight builds like this in the future.

Blade Runner 2049 Spinner

Blade Runner 2049 is one of those love it or hate it kind of movies it seems. I personally loved it, it's a slow burn, but so rich in style and visuals. The new Spinner is a very cool vehicle, not quite as cool as it's predecessor, but still pretty awesome, and this version by vaionaut not only depicts it really well, it's fantastically presented.

Space Castle Mash-up

When I first saw the Nexo Knights theme, I was excited, because I figured people would jump on the whole medieval sci-fi genre. There haven't been many Nexo Knights MOCs yet, but this one by Dubbadgrim is exactly what I was hoping for. It combines castle elements, like the main wall and the landscaping on the base, with some cool science fiction parts, like the anti-aircraft gun and the robots. I wish we'd see mash-ups like this more often.

Cutting-Edge Mechnology

This mech by Gamabomb, who is quickly becoming one of my new favorite builders, is absolutely awesome. With its large head and spindly little legs, it's cartoony enough to have a lot of character, but still looks very realistic and menacing thanks to all the cool details it has. I particularly like the curved bit on the side of the mech's head, as well as the shaping of the angles on its chest.
