Dippy

It’s diplodocus in the Museum of Natural Science in Madrid, has his centennial birthday on December 1st. The madrilenian Dippy is a copy of the diplodocus of the same name in the Museum of Natural History of London, which is a reproduction of a Diplodocus carnegii skeleton found in Wyoming in 1899.

The overall shape and the use of minifig hands for the tail are what I like the most from this dino skeleton made by Víctor M. Nouvilas (| MolochBaal ⟩), so awesome!

Dracula Castle

So much to love in this awesome build by Toltomeja, I can feel the mystery and horror from this build, saying “Come inside and I’ll suck your blood!”. There are lots of interesting details and technique here but what really caught my interest was the roof technique using this Minifig, Footwear Flippers, I think that’s an excellent choice for a Dracula castle.

Scaled Up!

A LEGO pieces made by LEGO pieces! That’s an awesome idea by Matija Grguric (Brick Architect) who made this build back in 2012. I bet he’ll be happy to know that now he can replace the top of the broom’s stick from Dark Tan color to a 2×2 Brick Dome in reddish brown, though it is still a rare piece that only appear in 1 set in 2015’s Friends Heartlake House set.

Lowell Sphere

One of the best all around builder Bruce Lowell have made and published an awesome sphere technique back then in 2012, if you interested you could buy his Sphere Kit here.

This technique is very useful and though there are many plate sphere technique, I believe Bruce’s one is the best since the result is very smooth due to the combination use of Jumper Plate and 2×2 Corner Plate here.

I used his technique to make this fried chicken build. Such an awesome technique indeed, thanks for sharing this Bruce!

Fried Chicken…anyone?

Omaha Beach

Omaha Beach is the code name for one of the five sectors of the Allied invasion of German-occupied France in the Normandy landings on 6 June 1944, during World War II.

I always love war and military theme but what caught my interest from this build made by Myles (M&MSteamCo.) was the realistic shore and water effect! The details are amazing and the water looks so real, using tan as the dry sand, dark tan as the wet sand, and trans clear as a top layer of the water.

Pong!

I never saw this 70’s Atari Pong machine with my own eyes (I’m glad I’m not that old), but this build by Quy Chau (quý) in 2013 looks exactly like the real thing. Now I just wish I had the chance to play it in person back then, it would be so much fun for sure!

Jedi Steamfighter

What happen if Star Wars took place a long, long time a go in a steampunk era? Well this happened! This awesome mashed-up made by Zach (zachmoe) was meant as an entry for Steam Wars Contest held at FBTB back then but unfortunately he never got around to finish the hyperspace ring.

For whatever his reason was, I still think this build is so awesome and have the right amount of mashed-up between the two worlds…very inspiring!

Orbscure

The first time I saw this in 2013, I thought it wasn’t LEGO at all since I’d just got back from my Dark Ages and haven’t quite familiar enough with other theme besides Duplo and System (yeah I know, so newb! lol).

This mean looking machine monster was made by Ray Paulus aka BioRays, inspired by armandeo64 concept robo which now I even more convinced that this is one of the best Bionicle mech I’ve seen. The bulky shape, the black and gold colors, and the parts choice specially those Technic panels seems fits perfectly! Such an awesome job Ray!

Gangster Car

This 30’s Ford Model A was made by one of the best minifig scale car builder Calin (_Tiler) in 2013 and still as one of my favorite LEGO MOC all time. I’ve been planning to replicate this for quite a while (almost 3 years now…lol), but I only managed to replicate this not even half front of the car which I still keep it in my shelf. It’s just too many unusual and brilliant technique there which my head can’t keep up. Bravo my friend!
