I like silhouette style and this build by Justin and Jordan W. (General JJ) was one of the first inspiration I had back then. The composition of this scene is great with the sun behind the warrior and those silhouette birds made by Small Barb piece are the icing on the cake!
A great photo could make your LEGO looks alive and real, and this scene by Dark-Alamez was one of them.
Luckily he was kind enough to share the behind the scene setup, and yes! That’s the magic of photography! How an awesome shot comes from a simple setup (and sometimes ridiculous). Bravo my friend!
It’s a mashed-up between Titanfall and World War 2, sets in an alternate universe.
This was one of the most difficult and frustrating build I’d made, I guess due to my lack of skill…hahaha. It was my 4th attempt to make what you see as the final build and thanks to this AF4 that I can finally make a bigger mech, that tan building there was inspired by the work of BrickCityDepot.
If you interested, I’d made a video showing the process and breakdown of this build.
The Photo Setup:

There are many palm tree techniques out there but I think this one made by my friend Jimmy Fortel (6Kyubi6) is one of the best palm tree I’ve seen, which you could try it yourself (I did and the result is awesome). Thank you for sharing this Jimmy!

Intimidating, cool, and black…what more to not loving this build! This awesome black aircraft by Josiah N. was meant to be fit with the Ultra Agent themes and I think he’d succeed! It turns out that this also his LEGO Ideas project which you can vote here if you want this build to be an official set from LEGO. Good luck, Jos!
And hey! It has a cool interior too!
When I first saw Kelvin Low‘s (chubbybots) small mechs and bots back then when he was just a newcomer, you can tell a talented builder instantly. I’m very amazed on how and what he did, knowing that all the pieces he used most are from Mixels sets, but what really caught my interest was his sense of shaping and proportion was just, so, so good!
I told him that in time when he have a larger part collection to build bigger mechs I bet it will be awesome as heck, and yup he sure did which you can find his bigger scale mechs below!
If I can bet to him again (how about a cup of coffee, Kelvin 😉 ), I’m sure that these all are not the end of his limit, it’s just the beginning of his journey to become one of the best mech builder in the world.
His recent bigger scale mechs:
You may have saw a lot of awesome Steampunk builds using brown and gold colors, but it’s like a breath of fresh air whenever I see a builder using other colors like this outstanding build by Moko (LEGO DOU Moko), but not just the colors alone that makes my eyes pop…the shaping, proportion, and details of this mech and the minifigs are all so good and well thought! Well done, Moko!

I do collects LEGO modular building official sets, in fact it was that theme that really brought me back from my dark ages in 2013.
That’s why I always enjoy modular building builds made by FOL (Fans of LEGO) like this one beautiful house by Fichez Valentin. What I really like from this build are the composition and the color scheme that looks calm and nice, all I can think is I wish I could live there. Superb job Fischez!
