Star-Lord, Man. Legendary Outlaw!

Brickatecture returns, unveiling his brand new wearable Star-Lord / Peter Quill helmet after 3 months of hard work. This model is 100% LEGO, 100% wearable, and 100% awesome. The helmet itself barely seems LEGO, especially with all the fine hair detailing that went into this model. All of the time and parts that went into this creation sure seems to have paid off! Make sure to follow Brickatecture for more amazing life size LEGO replicas!

     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.

VENOM

Brickatecture MOC Industries is back with another fantastic LEGO superheroes model, which was completed just in time for Halloween! Man is now combining LEGO and Symbiote to make this scary realistic Venom mask made 100% from LEGO elements! “This LEGO Venom Helmet is fully wearable and features a working puppet jaw (the helmet talks when you talk). It took 3 weeks to build and features about 1000 pieces.” Not only is the mask insanely cool on its own, but the builder can even wear it and operate the jaw to make Venom talk at the same time! Ridiculously cool.

I am now hungry for Tater Tots. You’re welcome.

I Am Groot, I Am Groot. I Am Groot!

I am Groot, I am Groot, I am Groot. I am Groot! I am Groot. . .

Thank you for telling us a little bit about yourself, Groot. I'll take it from here. Markus Rollbühler is clearly excited to see our favorite baby tree in existence on the big screen! Now, this little figure of Groot is excellent, especially the shaping of the head, and those cute little eyes. I think the sand green was a nice color choice, even when mixed with the olive green. I also really love the control device, with those buttons and levers. My only question is, who has the tape? Not a single person has tape? I think we should put some tape over the death button.

I am Groot!

The Arrowcave (We're Not Calling It That)

Here at BrickNerd, we like to occasionally do a blast from the past. . .

Arrow is one of my favorite superhero television shows that currently airs.  It tells the story of Oliver Queen (AKA the Green Arrow), a familiar comic book character that is given a very dark past on this series.  Today, we're sharing two separate creations of the Arrow's lair, or the Arrowcave (it should be noted that Oliver himself was against this name).  Though they are built by two different builders, each interpretation gives some of the iconic appearances of the secret lair.  Check out both of these MOC's, the first created by superhero builder Tim Lydy, followed by Brickwielder's version.

Well, I've Seen Stranger. . .

Your friendly neighborhood LEGO builder Vitreolum, a reputable character builder, recently created something rather strange. . .Steven Strange.  "It's Doctor, actually."  Right, sorry -- Doctor Steven Strange.  Please don't zap me to another dimension.  The latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Doctor Strange film was a very intriguing film that added some of the craziness the movies needed.  This model here depicts the iconic character's classic look in contrast to Benedict Cumberbatch's updated movie version.  The builder utilizes an interesting detailed piece to act as the Eye of Agamotto, Mr. Strange's (I meant doctor) iconic necklace that may or may not contain an Infinity Stone.  Does this inspire you to try building him yourself?  Stranger Things have happened!

Your Friendly, Cute, Neighborhood Superheroes!

With the recent announcement of LEGO's very own BrickHeadz line, fans will be excited to collect a different kind of figure.  Builder J.B.F. has gotten in on the action, creating his own style of collectible brick-built figures!  His starring line-up contains some great characters, including: Iron Man, Batman, the Flash, Superman, Captain America, and Hulk himself!  (I hope more will join the collection soon!)  Each character is made with the builder's new and creative building style, displayed on a base unique to that figure.  I would love to buy some of these in stores!
