On a distant, frozen world, intrepid scientists endure sub zero temperatures to research renewable energy and explore. Builder Norton74 revives the sub-theme Ice Planet 2002 with this awesome exploration vehicle. It makes me feel like it’s 1993 all over again. I was busy making the switch from creature effects to digital, and getting married, so wasn’t buying much LEGO, but I remember admiring these in the stores. None of the real sets were nearly this cool though.
Love it or hate it snow sure does get in the way of life. We Northerns have all this fancy equipment for removing snow from all sorts of places, including railroads. For those living in the southern regions of this planet you might think it silly to have a train dedicated to snow removal. But, snow is a fickle thing and it is better to be over prepared for those few days of year when you get multiple feet of the "cold white stuff". Builder Maciej Drwięga seems to think the people of LEGOland are in need of snow removal as well, and as such has presented us with a cool (haha, snow pun!) PKP 411S-121 snow plow.
I watched a lot of nature shows when I was a kid, so when I saw this shot of Miro Dudas' new moc, I could almost hear David Attenborough's voice. Built for a contest on Eurobricks, Miro has captured the action perfectly. The fox, listening to it's prey scurrying beneath the snow, almost has a smile on its face, ready to strike. Lunchtime!
I love the sense of motion and drama in this MOC by monstrophonic. Here in sunny California, we don't have to contend with much snow, but I've seen some video of trains auto clearing snow from their own tracks and it's spectacular. Well, it's spectacular from a comfortable chair watching YouTube, I imagine in person it's a bit terrifying.
First off, everyone look at the front door of this shack and acknowledge the NPU. I mean, seriously, a boat for a front door it doesn't get much better than that folks! I'm also loving all the angles, so many unnaturally delicious ways jaapxaap has put this house together yet made it look congruent. I am, however, a little disappointed in the lack of murder(?) in this scene, though I am hoping we will see that in part 2 of this build.
This is one of those MOCs that seems simple at first, and then surprises you, then continues to draw you in. The detail seems minimalistic at first, then you realize you've just not really looked. The shapes seem almost crude, then you realize it's because they're effortless. Nice work Gideon.
