I always have a soft spot when it comes to classic cars and sci-fi and this radical custom classic car by Tim Henderson hit my spot with double combo. The shape and design is just so cool it’s just like it came from a futurstic sci-fi movie sets in the 50’s. One other thing that really awesome is how he cleverly makes the front grill! It’s hard not to love this beauty for sure! Nicely done my friend! 🙂
When a great build met a great presentation and this is what happen. This build by Patrick Massey is so perfect, not just as a great build but to me this is more like an art or a beautiful painting which I’ll never get bored looking and enjoy it.
He used fog machine and Lifelites for the interior lighting and took an extra mile to take this shot, even his neighbor think his house was on fire because of the fog machine XD
If you like sci-fi and haven’t seen Akira (1998), well you should! There are lots of inspiration from that awesome movie, notably the Kaneda’s bike. Though there are a lot of minifig scale LEGO Kaneda’s bike version you can find on the web, but I think this one made by Calin (_Tiler) is the best of it.
He is kind enough to share the instruction on how to make this beauty, but please use the common ethic, which means NO reselling, NO distribution, NO building of models for sale purposes, or else I’ll pray a lot of misfortune coming to you (nop, that’s no joke)!
I actually made this on February for Bhinneka LUG public display at Dunia Bricks 2016. Though it may be small compare to other LEGO con and exhibition around the world, but it’s the biggest LEGO public display in Indonesia which held annually every March.
This was intended as a community build for our local FOL (Fans of LEGO) who interested to join in. This was what we did on 2014 with 52 stacked vignette displayed.
For this 2016 year, the result was surprisingly beyond expectation with total of 96 stacked vignette on display which I contribute 8 of them.
Here is the guideline rules that I set for this year. It should be on 8×16 plate with 10 bricks height + 1 plate height on the top:
Here are all the stacked vignette that I contributed:
I always appreciate and prefer using practical effect than digital…well just look what they’ve done with the Star Wars prequel XD
This awesome shot by Shobrick is an example of what practical effect can do, not just as an awesome picture but it can gives you reality to some degree which you almost can feel that you are there.
The best thing of it, he is kindly enough to take an effort making a video to share how this shot was setup and how he did it. Lots of extra mile he went just to take this shot, but as you can see, the result is outstanding! Thanks for sharing this Shobrick! 🙂
What I like most about LEGO that it could act as a media for expression and creativity in countless way, and one of the thing that we can create using LEGO is comic strip. I found this comic strip a while ago made by Dark Alamez which I think is really funny.
As for myself, I found it difficult to think and create a funny or an interesting story for a comic strip or maybe just a simple scene. I tried several times and it’s tough T_T
Other than that, I also found that it’s quite rare to find a good funny scene or comic strip using LEGO, don’t believe it? Just google it and what you saw there mostly were made a long time ago and the good one is very few. That’s why I always respect those who can made one which I really enjoy it 🙂
One other thing that caught my interest here was that police line back there, I’m curious which I thought it was stickers at first, it turns out those are threads. Luckily he’s not just sharing his trick but also his photo setup which I think it’s very creative by using simple things to setup the lighting! Awesome job man! 🙂
I love ideas, especially when it’s out of the box or some just simply call it crazy (in a good way of course), like this crazy out of the box crustacean fusion made by my friend mike m (LEGOMINDED).
The build is awesome, how he mash it up is excellent and didn’t look odd at all, it instantly took my imagination when I first saw this…what if minifigs really lives among us in the real world?
I bet this will be a common thing for us to look in our daily life, and what other possibilities that we might see and met in that world, it inspired me a lot and took my imagination far away and all comes from this simple yet crazy idea.
If you have seen Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and you’ll know that Batman’s armor isn’t as strong as it looks. But make no mistake, I bet this armored Batman made by Chris would gives Superman fig a very hard time for sure, well just look at it! I even like this Batman armor a lot more than the real one I saw in the movie. Such an excellent job here!
If you love Harry Potter, you should check out what Marcel V just done, he was making a series of vignette for the whole month of March, with total 27 delightful vignettes which you can see it in his album here.
But one of the vignette that caught my interest is his Mirror of Erised:
There are 2 things that I found it awesome besides the vignette itself. One is the use of trans clear piece on black background as mirror, and two is the floor technique invented by legostrator here, kudos to both of you 🙂
