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!

Nathaniel Stoner

     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
