Love Bunnies

February 9, 2011

LEGO builder Schfio of Hong Kong has created the most adorable pair of bunnies for the Year of the Rabbit.

They have such character you almost want to pick them up and hug them! But then of course, unlike real bunnies, they would be a little sharp. πŸ˜€

Schfio is no stranger to creating LEGO sculptures. The more I see of his, the more impressed I am with his skills.

He certainly has a distinctive style and I look forward to seeing what he creates in the future.

Life’s a Beach

Life's a Beach

Joshua Morris is known for his elaborate and creative MOCs (My Own Creations) and his newest is no exception. At first glance it looks like a pretty simple beach scene that he made primarily to show off all his new Collectible Minifigure Series 2 figs. But as you look closer you see the level of detail he’s put into this model.

Life's a Beach
I love how the Pharaoh is making sphinx and the Spartan is making a sand castle. πŸ™‚

Life's a Beach
The wave the surfer is riding is an excellent use of a simple curving technique.

Great job Joshua!

Happy New Year 2010!

December 31, 2009

I was planning on doing something clever to ring in the new year, but Philip Stark already did it. πŸ™‚

This is a bright, cheery, and LEGO-y way to celebrate the new year. What I think is particularly clever is the fact that it is all LEGO food.

I am looking forward to a brighter and wonderful future. Happy New Year! πŸ˜€

These fish are getting a LEGO house for Christmas

December 22, 2009

Nigel Guy has his little LEGO men hard at work in his fish tank. Its a pretty clever way to display your LEGO, as long as you don’t mind the bricks getting a little fishy. Of course the minifigs might disagree since they don’t have diver suits on.

My only question is how does he keep the models from floating? πŸ˜‰

The Pirate Advent Calendar Review β€” Day 14

December 14, 2009

Pirate Advent Calendar Day 14

Deep in the ocean surrounding the island a beautiful mermaid swims through the clear blue waters. From her friendly fish she has heard of these new visitors to her island and wishes to see them. Up till now there has only been that sad old man who stares longingly out to sea.

At first when he came she would only allow him to get glimpses of her diving from a rock or bobbing her head above the water. But as time passed she swam nearer and nearer to shore, finally swimming right up to him.

They have become good friends. He has taught her much of the world of man and she has taught him much of the ocean depths. She knows that he will not betray her secret, but she hopes that if he does leave with these visitors she will get to wish him farewell.

The Pirate Advent Calendar Review β€” Day 12

Pirate Advent Calendar Day 12

As they have been talking night has fully fallen. The old man, who says his name is Simon, invites them to his humble campsite for the night.

Captain Brickbeard, quite an adept fisherman, has caught a nice batch of fresh fish. While cooking the fish over the fire Simon asks them about themselves and how the world has changed.

After talking for a while Brickbeard asks about what is on the map. Simon informs them that they must climb to the top of the mountain. Simon tells them that it is in a cave guarded by bones and ancient idols.

Underwater Panic

October 13, 2009

When I first saw this I misread the title and thought that it said “Underwater Picnic.” Upon closer inspection I realized the actual title and what the scene was about. What I think is kind of funny is that either title works. πŸ˜€

Ricardo Silva aka Evildead on Flickr has created this fun and expressive scene. I really like how he used the new fish element with trans lightsaber bars to suggest that they are swimming away from the underwater behemoth. And I really love how some of the submarine passengers look concerned while others are taking pictures or enjoying the unexpected entertainment. πŸ™‚

Checking out SeaLife

October 13, 2008

Hi all! Well I finally checked out SeaLife at LEGOLAND California. It was pretty nice, if a little small. As I am a Master Model Builder, I paid more attention to the LEGO models than the actual sea life.

I really liked seeing the big Minifig LEGO models in the tank. Although I wonder how they clean them. πŸ˜‰

My favorite SeaLife Model

My favorite SeaLife Model

The crazy thing is that my favorite model isn’t even in the attraction part of SeaLife, it is on the playtables up in the Cafe area. I really like the coral model with all the LEGO fish, visually I think its the most stunning.

I did like seeing the fish too, and its worth a check if you are going to LEGOLAND. It’s designed to only take a couple of hours, so the best thing is to get the “park-hopper” pass so that you can go to both LEGOLAND and SeaLife on the same day.
