“Did someone call for IT support?”

July 2, 2014

" did someone call for IT support ? "

Okay, this isn’t really a build per se, but it is one of my new favorite minifigs — Terabyte from the new Ultra Agents Set 70165 — I just need to get the set (or buy him off bricklink).

Legoagogo created this fun pic. I think the stacks of 1×1 transparent red plates in the background really make this pic pop!

And I love Terabyte’s torso design. Why does LEGO keep making cool minifigs that are in expensive sets? :D

Simpsons — LEGO Miniland Style

April 27, 2014

LEGO Simpsons

I’ve seen attempts of creating the Simpsons before, but with the 1×1 eye tiles, its a lot easier to be accurate and David Pickett’s versions are pretty darn good!

Well actually they aren’t exactly Miniland Scale, they are a tad too tall for that — at 10 bricks tall Bart is standard Minilander height. But even so, they are in that range.

LEGO Simpsons - Comparison

With the upcoming LEGO episode on the Simpsons TV show and the Simpsons Minifigs starting to show up in stores — which I still haven’t found by the way — I expect a lot of Simpsons models to start popping up. ;)

Sword in the Stone

December 6, 2013

The Sword in the Stone

This truly epic scene by Chris Maddison is awesome! I love the Disney movie Sword and the Stone and Chris’ version of it is simply perfect.

The Sword in the Stone

I love the technic connectors as bare winter trees and the slight glow on the alter. :)

Siren’s Song

September 6, 2013

A Siren's Melody

Okay its technically called Siren’s Melody, but I like my title :D

I love mermaids, always have, so I fell in love with this scene by Sean and Steph Mayo. What I love most is the fact that the mermaids are not minifigs. They are very cleverly built out of just a few simple bricks.

Of course the rest of the scene is awesome too. The use of the large clear panels and the round transparent blue and clear parts for the top gives a nice feel of moving water and the palm trees are brilliant.

2013 Holiday Sets

September 2, 2013

Well it may have barely turned September, but Christmas is coming early. Okay, not really, but these are the two limited edition Holiday sets that will be available this year at LEGO Brand Retail Stores and Shop at Home online (only in the contries with LEGO Stores).

The first one will be available October 14-31st with purchase of $99. The second one will be available Brick Friday (Black Friday) weekend with purchase of $99.

One good thing is that October is double VIP points month, so every dollar you spend is worth twice as much. :)

I’m not as excited for this year’s sets as much as last year’s set. But if you want to complete your LEGO Winter Village, then this is a must have. ;)

Steampunk Batcave

July 31, 2013

Steampunk Batcave

Need I say more? Its just plain cool! Jonas has created the perfect blend of Batman and Steampunk.

I think my favorite part is the Tumbler :D

Steampunk Tumbler

Now I want to see the rest of Gotham… ;)

From the Pit

July 24, 2013

Sometimes its not about the build, its about the lighting.

Rancor's Pit

Vesa Lehtimäki has made a rather scary scene of TK-24/7 looking for Death Star plans in the dungeons of Jabba’s Palace and Jabba’s favorite pet stealing Tk-24/7′s helmet.

This isn’t really a build, but the lighting is what makes this photo noteworthy. ;)

BrickWorld Chicago 2013 Recap

June 25, 2013

Okay I know I’ve totally been MIA for the last couple of weeks and I apologize for that. BrickWorld was fun, amazing and totally exhausting! I’m still not fully recovered from the trip. That’s what happens when you only sleep 2-4 hours every night. :D

So BrickWorld this year started out with a bang, literally. I happened to fly in just before a major storm that actually had torrential rains, lightning, thunder, and even tornado warnings. I only really experienced it while riding in the shuttle bus from the airport to the hotel. Even though it went on all night, and lots of flights were canceled, once I was in the hotel / convention center I rarely looked outside as I was busy setting things up, talking with friends, and starting on all the LEGO Convention fun.

This year’s theme was Heros and Villians

There was a set unveiling — the Sydney Opera House

It looks really good in person and all that dark tan! Also there’s a 48×48 stud baseplate in blue!

And they also showed what the next Cusoo set will be

I think this was my favorite micro scale model

There was a lot of buzz about the new roller coaster LEGO compatible parts. I was going to get one, but I didn’t have any room in my suitcase, so I’ll be ordering one instead. ;)

And this was rather random but cool — tiles and flowers making a “glove”

What it looked like during Public hours

I have tons more photos on my Flickr photostream although I know I didn’t get pictures of everything.

It was a great show and I look forward to next year. Now on to planning for BrickFair Virginia and Bricks by the Bay — back to back weekends I might add and cross country for me. But I’ll be at both. ;)

Two Different Islands

April 15, 2013

Iron Builder is at it again. Two builders enter, only one leaves.

Okay, that’s a little dramatic. But so are these two models by
Chris Maddison
and Bruce Lowell
Castaway

Sunset

I love Chris’ palm trees and the tiny sailboat in the distance. But the sweet serene sunset that Bruce has created is also awesome.

This model is the Bob-omb

March 22, 2013

LEGO Bob-omb

Carl Merriam has created this sweet little vignette. I love how tiny the little Bob-ombs are and how very detailed. Carl himself told me that there’s no cheating or cutting.
