The most interesting AFOL in the world prefers BRICKCON

To drum up interest in going to BrickCon Iain Heath with his zany sense of humor has created a set of photos that just had to be posted.

Wil Weaton signing a model of Wil Weaton…

April 2, 2012

Although some people are into April Fool’s jokes, I’m not one of them. So I avoid the silliness all together. I did however post this on my Facebook page yesterday. I would have posted it here too, but Iain Heath hadn’t posted it on Flickr yet. πŸ˜€

While I was hanging out with the guys of FBTB, SandLUG, and LUGOLA at LEGOLAND California Star Wars Days, Iain and the rest of SeaLUG was at Emerald City Comicon in Seattle.

I will be posting a follow up to Star Wars Days, but until then check this out.

Since Iain is Iain (you have to know him, or at least his models, to understand that one πŸ˜‰ ) he created a LEGO model of Wil Weaton signing a LEGO model of himself and then he had the actual Wil Weaton sign it. Its so meta, it almost blows my mind! πŸ˜€
Lego model of Wil Wheaton signing a Lego model of Wil Wheaton ...actually being signed by Wil Wheaton!

Here’s a close up of the model

Of course there were other, much larger, models on display. I know Scott Fowler’s MOC certainly deserves its own post. But I’ll be visiting those another day. For now, live long and prosper! — Hey, I had to get a Star Trek reference in there somewhere!

Pythonscape

"PythonScape" at BrickCon 2011

Update Iain asked me to take the orignial image down. I guess I jumped the gun on this one as he wants the models to be a surprise. If you want to see the models check them out at BrickCon.

Iain Heath is at it again. He’s working on a series of Monty Python inspired Miniland scale models. It is all part of Pythonscape at the upcoming BrickCon Convention, which is only a month away for any of you who are planing on going and have yet to register. πŸ˜‰

I will certainly be there and if I get a chance (time allowing) I’ll be participating in Pythonscape as well. If you want to be part of Pythonscape check out the Flickr group for details.

Quorra from Tron Legacy

November 29, 2010

Quorra from "Tron Legacy"

Iain Heath certainly has his own unique style when it comes to LEGO building. Here is yet another good example, Quorra from the new Tron Legacy movie.

This model represents something of a new direction for me, technique wise. I am trying to get away from my trademark “2X miniland” scale characters, and most of my major projects going forward are going to be at this somewhat larger (1ft) scale. I’m still working the ‘formula’, but this style should enable me to create much more detailed and lifelike characters.

Quorra from "Tron Legacy"

It was very heartening to see a stronger female character in this version (compared to the original), so I couldn’t resist modelling her in Lego!

The head alone for this model required around 50 bricks and 4 hours effort.

I look forward to seeing more of these new, larger Ochre Jelly creations. πŸ˜‰
