Happy New Year! Magnificent Maleficent and other assorted models

January 5, 2015

Hi all, its been a while. Happy New Year! One of my new year resolutions is to keep up my blog more. So lets get this started

20150101_001255-1
I created this minutes after the clock struck 12 on New Year’s Eve / Day. I posted it on Facebook, but not here on the blog.

I was looking on Flickr and found this cool Maleficent model by legorobo:waka. Its almost Miniland scale.

He also created this cool insect scene

Tyler Clites always known for his fun and whimsical builds created this cute Eskimo scene

Sorry for being so incommunicado, I hope on doing better this year! May we all have an awesome year of LEGO in 2015!

Micro Planet Express

Planet Express

Good news Everyone! Okay Yaramanoglu has created a Micro Planet Express!

Yet another reason why I love Micro is seeing iconic TV shows like Futurama made really tiny. πŸ˜€

Now if he just did the rest of New New York…Oh, wait, Matt De Lanoy already did that. πŸ˜‰

Welcome to Fhloston Paradise

Welcome to Fhloston Paradise

Fifth Element is still one of my favorite films. No matter how many times I’ve seen it, I tend to watch it whenever its on TV. And I’ve got 2 DVDs of it (mainly because of the one time I couldn’t find the original DVD and bought a replacement, only to find the first one again).

So you can understand how happy I am to see Matt De Lanoy’s model. Some how I missed it last month when he posted it.

Matt is no stranger to creating simply awesome models. I’ve posted some of his previous creations here like his Andy’s Room of Toy Story. And his New New York is pure epic-ness to behold! Trust me, I’ve seen both in person. πŸ˜‰

Fhloston Paradis is yet another epic model that is a nice 40 x 20 inches in size.

But its not just the overall model that’s fun, its all the little details like this clearly befuddled Ray

So many cool details, I just might have to watch the movie again. You know, so I can check the accuracy. πŸ˜€

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˜€

Arrested Development in LEGO

August 23, 2011

Full Scene

Matt De Lanoy (aka Pepa Quin) has created yet another TV show in LEGO. This time its Arrested Development.

Matt has gotten a lot of attention for his creations and this one is no exception. The website Funny or Die has it featured on their website. (Warning to parents — Funny or Die is known to have inappropriate content.)

I don’t really know the show that well, but Matt is a friend of mine and I’m sure he’s put as much attention to detail with this one as he has his other creations. And the fact that a non-LEGO website is featuring it shows that other’s are impressed as well.

Great job yet again Matt! πŸ™‚

Futurama is Back, Baby!

June 23, 2010

Although I noted Pepa Quin’s Futurama layout in my last post I didn’t notice this mosaic at BrickWorld, probably because it is on the backside.

Futurama is returning to TV tomorrow on Comedy Central after its untimely cancellation many years before on Fox Network. Although it is definitely not for the younger crowd, I’ve been a fan from the beginning.

Even if you are not a fan of the show, this mosaic is impressive. It utilizes a lot of SNOT (Studs Not On Top) techniques and let me tell you from experience, building letters at a slant in LEGO is not easy. πŸ˜‰

Great job Matt!
