WAWLUG first exhibition after pandemic craze. It was held on 20.06.2020 at Bemowo/Warsaw/Poland. Thanks to Edge of Bricks for the video. I was not there myself, but my models were there anyway. Can you find them?
David from Solid Brix Studios shared recorded presentation by Rob Johnson (senior art director at LEGO Starwars) that was a part of Star Wars Celebration 2017. It explains how LEGO sets are designed, not only Star Wars, but those are used as an example.
There is not much new stuff for seasoned AFOLs, but for less hardcore fans it can be great mine of information about their favorite toy.
LUGPol is just running a contest where you need to make alternative models of 911720 SW Ghost foilpack. I prepared a few ideas.
I wanted to create something not obvious, so my first choice was a gym. Is that obvious? Not for me, as i cannot recall when i was last at the gym…
From left to right: drink water tank/resting place, squeezing bench, barbells stand, stepper bench.
Unused elements: 0
Almost any set with wheels can be turned into Dragster. This one does not have wheels per se, but as you see can be turned into a dragster anyway.
Unused elements: 2
If you can make a dragster out of the set, you can turn it into a spaceship, if you cannot make a dragster, then you can make it into a spaceship, or a fleet of.
Unused elements: 0 (well, one is unattached and is used only to level one of the ships)
Nexus and his dog
“Nexus and his dog” used to be a theme of one of the old contest. Thos time Nexus is quite robotic and the dog resembles more a turkey then the dog. Well, at least all parts are used 🙂
Unused elements: 0
look from behind:
Snail vs Turtle race has to be fierce! Either way we have something for animal lovers.
Unused elements: 14 (shame on me!)
That was only a warm-up. We only can put one build into the contest, so here is my entry. Wish me luck!
Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, you are my only hope!
I’m happy i kept the SW theme here.
Unused elements: 12 (quite a few, but the result was worth it, and it was no requirement, but i always challenge myself to try to use all elements)
Wish me luck! And write what else would you like me to build out of this set?
When i saw this beautiful build of Admiral Ackbar by Eero Okkonen i could not refrain from blogging it. It is absolutely accurate ! It shows masterful use of the bricks.
Seems this week is microscale week, so many cool micro builds were posted on the net. One of them is Simon Liu‘s scene where micro AT-ST are guarding some bunker.
Those walker are one of the smallest i have seen, yet they are extremely detailed. That is not first time Simon shows his building skills, and i’m sure there is more to come.
And no. This is not the scene from Empire Strikes back, that would have more green in it. This is Star Wars Battlefront build.
When i saw poster for Episode 7 i instantly knew i have to build this one. Death Planet aka Star Killer Base. This picture is heavily photoshopped for effect, so take a look at the other one that is untouched except color corrections and scaling: Continue reading Death Planet aka Star Killer Base
