A Feat of LEGOistics

Joshua Brooks takes us back to 1776 with this incredible MOC of the 'Noble Train of Artillery'. He's captured the wintery season with the snow-covered landscape and browning trees. The cannon and structures used by the cattle and horses to pull them are so true to form. Despite the fact Knox's Expedition took troops 3 months to complete, these minifgs still seem to have smiles on their faces!

Simply Maleficent!

The first things to really strike me about Johnnie Tee's representation of this scene from Maleficent, were the stained glass and floor tiling. They are so precise and authentic. Johnnie Tee explains that he was looking to create "gothic chic luxury befitting a young princess" and I think he's got this spot on! The details on the bed such as the feet and whips, along with the golden furnishings, create a sense of elegance. Aurora can be seen smiling and holding Maleficent's hand in this LEGO moc of the the 'True Love's Kiss' scene.

And I Know When That Hotline Bling....

This LEGO vignette by Nannan Zhang perfectly depicts some of the gameplay in Hotline Miami. The main minifig is 'Jacket' who wears a variety of masks as he takes on the local Russian Mafia, following instructions left on his answer machine. This scene sees Jacket bursting through the door and shooting one mob member whilst wealding a bat ready to take on the next. I really love the use of the red crystal in the back of the minifig that's been shot - it really creates a sense of impact! Also the dark red tiles under the dead minifig by the door as the blood spills over the floor.

Meet Matteo 4.0

This extraordinary guy is born from the awesome imagination of Dave Foreman. Matteo is made from Bionicle LEGO pieces and is packed full of detail. I can imagine Matteo skulking the streets of Victorian London late at night, hiding in the shadows as he makes his way to deliver a potion. He carries a gas lamp and a messenger bag - which contains books, a magnifying glass, medicine bottle and syringe. His cane is topped with a red spider eating a snake and he wears a bat pendant and pocket watch. Matteo's cape and hat make me think he's quite the gentleman . I wonder what the keys on his belt are keeping locked away...?

It's Only Forever, Not Long At All

I always believed that my hero David Bowie would live forever and ever. I was devastated when I heard the news in January that he'd passed away. Luckily, LEGO does last forever and thanks to Centuri he lives on in the form of Jareth the Goblin King. Labryinth is one of my all time favourite films and this build brings Jareth to life. I love the fact that if you look closely, you can see a minifig head used for the skull on Jareth's shoulder piece and chest lids for his boots. Now, what kind of magic spell to use....?
