There is interesting contest going on in Poaland. Lugpol’s and Zbudujmy.to user, Johan is running his private contest. There will be many stages each being separate task. For starters we were asked to build figurine in minifig scale, without using minifig parts – well, legs, torsos and heads are forbidden.
Golem is my entry. If you wonder – it’s not the Golem that is preventing me from updating this blog in timely manners. I hope i will be back next month with some changes, and daily updates.
Michał Kaźmierczak aka Migalart does it again. Another of his creation is mind blowing. This space ship is huge and very detailed. Use of fluorescent paint adds to the look by making series of windows glowing. The ship is built as a prop for his space comic, but this project, even with Michał’s dedication will probably take several years. I just can’t wait!
We were talking about unusual shapes made with bricks. This spaceship by Flavio is a perfect example. There are not many straight angles in this model. The use of white stripes is adding to the look of the model. It is also worth noticing how those 2 small stickers are contributing a lot to make the general impression. I have to rethink my “no stickers policy”.
Oh, and i want to remind you that it’s shiptember now! The month where you build 100 stud long spaceships. This one is a little to small, but all over flicker you can see photos of people building their shiptember ships. I would build mine too, but september is not the best time for me, real life bites, and i’m not even able to repost cool build every day, not to mention writing and building something original myself. But it will get better. I hope 🙂
Pacman is even more classic in games than Classic Space is classic in LEGO bricks. How classic is PacMan in Classic Space version? I do not know! Mind blown!
This crazy version of PacMan was built by David Roberts. The build is really nice, but i guess it would be possible to make PacMan ship even rounder. Then it is a spaceship, a little bit of edge here and there seems pretty ok.
On a side note, can we expect PacMan minifig from LEGO? Or other game characters? But we can for sure count on the fans in that matter.
Another day, another microscale build. This time it’s Golden Gate by Lisqr. Like often with microscale there is creative use of parts – this time sausage in the role of ropes holding up construction of the bridge.
Letranger Absurde‘s Petra is winning entry of RoLUG ‘s Microscale City Contest. Congratulations! The MOC looks really amazing, and it could be turned into genuine LEGO Architecture set as it is, but i advise you to see the rest of the competition as there are more cool builds.
I was speaking yesterday about making odd shapes out of lego, sure the dice i posted was great example, but this alien by Mihai Mrius Mihu is even better as shapes here are really crazy!
This is not build from usual XxY bricks, but all the parts are genuine LEGO. It also proves what Ivan Angeli always says “Each LEGO piece is useful”.
If we were giving crazy.builder titles to people, Mihai would definitely get it.
Building rectangular shapes out of LEGO bricks comes naturally. Building more complex shapes is real challenge, but it can be done, as Chris Maddison proves with this perfect build of d20 dice, a shape that is close to hearts of all role-players.
Scrat aka WHBRICKS form Zbudujmy.to proves my thesis: “you do not need many bricks to build something cool”. He even pushes it further and proves that you do not need many bricks to build something cooling.
Alejandro Burdisio diesel punk illustrations are ave inspiring. No wonder Crises from Zbudujmy.to got inspired to build this floating gas station. It is not perfect recreation, but rather creative approach keeping all the main qualities of the original work and adding his personal touch.
Here is painting that was inspiration for this MOC:
