I’d like to introduce the newest member of the Model Building Secrets team — Paul Lee! Not only is a great builder, he is a professional LEGO Comic Artist for the LEGO Club Magazine. If you’ve received your Club magazine lately, either here in the States or abroad, you’ve probably seen his work.

Here’s a couple samples:

Xenophobia

August 27, 2011

I think we all have to agree that the new face clingers from Alien Conquest sets is awesome. I immediately wanted several, although I only have 1 at the moment (but I’m accepting donations — just kidding πŸ˜‰ )

Anyhow, back to the post, when I saw Karf Oohlu’s latest creation and the story that goes along with it, it made me rethink of the face clingers as the menaces they are portrayed to be. πŸ˜€

Xenophobia

The day Grxzz always feared had arrived. Rumours of…HUMANS…seen wondering in the area. They’d always been a horror fantasy, something you used to scare the kids. But now, it seems they’re here, Quivering down to the very ends of his tentacles, he really wished he’d waited for others to arrive before coming out here – alone…

That’s not to say that I’m not impressed with the building techniques. The use of the Clickits elements — a theme that wasn’t so good, but elements that were, in my opinion — as mushroom tops is very cool.

Poor little Grxzz, all by himself searching for humans. Of course as he is a face clinger he could always just grab hold of them and take over their brains, at least that is what they did in Futurama. πŸ˜€
