I’m looking at this latest creation by builder jaapxaap and my mind is as bent as that roof! According to the description it’s the most complex roof he’s ever done, and I can believe it. In fact, I can’t fathom how it’s built. Purple, gold and grey, along with a splash of other colors, make for an eye catching combination. And it’s nice to see some tilted timbers construction in a clean, non castle build.
Take a good look at this landscape and tell me if there's anything that stands out? If you said the Killer Croc big fig used to create the hill then congratulations! You won absolutely nothing! (Unless you count knowledge which is the most valuable gift that I could give to you). It's MOCs like these that remind me why I love the Lego community so much. There are so many creative people out there and every Lego piece can be interpreted differently by each builder to come up with something amazing and unique. This temple by dzambito42 is a perfect example of this, and it just goes to show that all you need to create something truly mind-blowing is a little imagination.
Ben Cossy has reconstructed the ancient Sith temple that we see on Malachor from Star Wars Rebels! Arguably one of the best parts of the show, this temple looks incredible when recreated in LEGO form (especially when lit up, as pictured below)! The angling on the main structure, and accompanying columns, just adds so much depth to this structure that could be overlooked by the casual onlooker, but I would encourage you to take a closer to look to see all the added angles that Ben put in to make it a more complex model.
David Zambito is back with another unique build, adding to the creativity shown on his Flickr photostream. Jungle terrain isn't easy to replicate in LEGO. It'll either be too cluttered, or not have enough overgrowth. I think this terrain has been executed very well, and even went as far as adding a SNOT border around the edges to add to the terrain. The temple is beginning to be swallowed by jungle growth, but not too far that we can't recognize the nice design of the stonework and its layers.
Welcome to Kek Lok Si temple in Malaysia, courtesy of builder WingYew. This is an interesting scale of build, as you can see by the cars, it's not really micro scale, it's more on scale with the Tower Bridge set (although those are one stud longer). Which leads me to think we should coin a new term, "monument scale". What do you think?
I will admit I had never heard of this temple before this morning, but after seeing this jaw-dropping build by EugeneTTs I had to do a little research. The real building in Laos is stunning, and after seeing it I have even more appreciation for the attention to detail and accuracy of this model. Both are absolutely beautiful.
