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.

Microscale City Winner
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.
Here is my version of famous Eiffel Tower. Unlike Palace of Culture, i have never seen it with my own eyes, so i was building entirely using photos and blueprints as a reference. It is more like artistic impression of the Tower, then the exact model, but taking in consideration that this shape is not very brick friendly, i’m pretty happy with the end result. There is a little story behind it too, so “stay away and listen”. Continue reading Eiffel Tower
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.
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:
Are there any fans of Neon Genesis Evangelion around? This is one of the best brick built versions of Rei Ayanami. Nobu Tary that build it has a lot more stuff from that anime, follow his twitter if you are interested.
If you like quality gaming you wouldn’t pass any of the Blizzard titles, those are full of polish and interesting characters. One of them is Winston, gorilla in a powersuit, this time built by Polywen‘s (aka Paul Lee). Entire model is really good, but the face is really shining – resemblance is greater that you would expect from something built with bricks.
Get your mind back
Michael Jasper is uncrowned king of NPU. This piece is a perfect example! I could write more about this build, but i’m too busy enjoying all those nice piece usages.
