Long Hao Temple

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.

Scaly Hill

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.

The Ancient Sith Temple on Malachor

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.

     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

Temple Lost in the Jungle

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.
