Golden Studs Awards is a yearly event where Zbudujmy.To! awards best Polish brick builders. Let the title not mislead you. 2019 edition run at the beginning of the year is actually for the builds that were published in 2018. Judges who are top builders themselves chose pretenders and then select winners form among them in 12 categories. Works are taken from both polish lugs and polish internet and exhibitions. This year results have been just published. And this time i also won one of the categories \o/ Here are the categories and winners with short description form judges:
Category description: Innovative idea, or new approach to old ideas. It’s more about entire build than interesting building techniques. Winner: jetboy for 3… 2… 1… START!
Quintesence of microscale. Great thing built out of few bricks. Great dynamics of the launch of space rocket. Genial in simplicity.
Winner Janek for Punkt Agonii / Tymczasem w postnuklearnej Rosji… (Point of Agony / Meantie in postnuclear Russia…)
Well earned victory for giving “life” to “dead” minifigs.
Winner JAREMA for Alien Queen
Not the first time Jarema proves he is master of characters. Except perfectly realized shape of Alien Queen there is lots of NPU.
You can feel the mass and power. Such a crude mecha, well fitting vision of alternative WWII. It is so different to mechs we all know from other media. It has it’s own style. Ciamek did it again!
Winner Mateusz92 for Alstom Pendolino ED250 PKP Intercity
Mateusz and his train themed models are impressing us for long. It is no different with Pendolino model, which except phenomenal look is fully functional (has full lightning) and adds to each display she rides on.
Winner eric trax for Amazone Pantera 4502
Eric trax each time surprises us with his vehicles. Each time it seems he reached the top, and each consecutive creation of him seems to be better. His topic selection, exotic color schemes on models that are not often built out of Lego bircks made the work that left no chances for runners up.
Servator for long time is building small models in steampunk style, which gives chances for unusual piece usages, but in the case of this monowheel he reached the tops. Using “useless” turbine makes for a great NPU.
Winner Insomnia for Layers City
Insomnia with his Layers City presented fresh approach to city building giving builder opportunity to express himself on three levels, and viewer a chance to feed his senses multiple times on the same area of diorama. Great concept and execution!
Winner Toltomeja for Akademia Górniczo-Hutnicza w Krakowie
Next work that is perfect example of microscale build. Here you can see entire part of the city built realistically. It depicts AGH in Krakow. If it was built in minifig scale it wouldn’t fit in most of the exhibition halls, but as a microscale it can pu put on the table, and still everybody familiar with AGH will recognize aech building easily. We are impressed with completeness and size of the build.
Janek with such a tiny model managed to describe future history and give the feel of the post apocalyptic city so well, we would want to see more of this metropolis,
Nowa Nadzieja jest bardzo ważną kategorią i wszyscy wiedzą dlaczego. Spośród nominowanych w tej kategorii, KarolWes wyróżnia się różnorodnością podejmowanej tematyki oraz niebanalnym podejściem do budowania.
Przegląd tegorocznych prac:
Last year’s New Hope, this time most popular from advanced builders, what an instantaneous career! Insomnia builds MOCs small and monumental, happening in the past and future, sterile and messy, but always full of interesting details, colorful and extremely climatic. We wait for more!
Congratulations for all the winners, if you want to see all the contenders please go to Zbudujmy To! forums.
Here is video from latest Zbudujmy To’s exhibition held in local community center in Białołęka/Warsaw/Poland.
How far is it to the moon? What are rainbows? Which was the first animal to go into space?
Those are exactly the questions the new “Explained with LEGO Bricks” series is aiming to answer with both educational facts through live-action, but also humorous LEGO stop motion sections and cut-scenes.
The show’s purpose is to use the fun of the LEGO Bricks to draw kids in a topic they would be naturally curious about, and prompt them to know more. All episodes will aim to do this with various topics about science, nature and technology as part of the larger effort to get more kids interested into STEM related topics.
Early October, the LEGO Group launched a dedicated YouTube Kids channel for everything STEM related: LEGO Discover. This channel aim is to teach kids modern skills in a fun way thanks to the LEGO product and bricks and make the overall LEGO STEAM programs and initiatives accessible to a younger audience. The channel community has already grown to over 10,000 subscribers.
