Rey’s NN-14 Blaster Pistol

When I first saw Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens, one of the thing that stuck in my head was when Han solo gave a small cool looking blaster to Rey, which turns out comes in handy. I think this awesome Rey’s Blaster made by Lego Admiral is the first one I’ve seen around.

Not just how good he nailed the design and shaping but the details such as those stripes and holes stickers what I think really makes the difference and really nailed the overall look.

This build is so inspiring for me that I really want it so bad to make one too, hope he don’t mind I borrow one or two technique from this awesome build 🙂

Iron Man Hall of Armor

I made this a while a go and it’s a long process far back to 2013 when I just started building my own. Jon San Pedro’s Hulkbuster and Calin’s work was one of the thing that inspired me a lot to hunt for parts and try to build by myself. This Hall of Armor was made for my LUG contest back in September 2015 and meant for public display in a shopping center for a month. Finally I have the time to make this video which I always wanted to do since the event was done.Hope you enjoy the video 🙂

Indonesia’s Old China Town

I started these builds since June 2015 to participate for my LUG’s community build celebrating Chinese New Year for Dunia Bricks 2016 at March 2016.

Indonesia itself is a multicultural country with lots of diversity spread across the nation with our national slogan’s “Unity in Diversity”. Having said that, there are a lot of Chinese heritage and ethnic lives in Indonesia which I’m one of them, but no…I can’t read and write Chinese, all the writing on the signs there are all copy-paste from Wikipedia…hahaha

This community build was meant as a nostalgic of a classic China Town in Indonesia which you still can find it now, though it looks a lot different with modernization here and there…well, not to forget added with too much classic Kung-Fu movies and shows…hahaha

Though the official modular building sets are the one that brought me back from my dark-ages back in 2013 which I’m still collect and following the series, but it’s one of the theme that I’m afraid the most since I think it’s hard to top the official sets and I’m not skilled enough to do so. Therefore, I humbly present to you my first modular building that I’d made 🙂

Here is the modular buildings:

Here is the video documentation of the Indonesia’s Old China Town community build, made by Bhinneka LUG (start at 9:40):

Regret

Sometimes in life you’ll feel this kind of moment, regretting things we have done and hope we could done it differently. This build by Heikki Mattila perfectly captured the mood and atmosphere of that feeling by using silhouette building technique. Nicely done Heikki!

Prisoner

The Simpsons

There are a lot of build inspired by The Simpsons character which is till one of my favorite cartoon to this day and very suitable for kids…(see what I did there)…hahaha.

This interpretation by SuckMyBrick, who is a specialist in brick character took the character in a more chibi style which I think it gives a fresh breath of air to all the characters! Though all in this lineup are awesome, but what I love the most are Ned, Willie, and Apu that really standout from the rest. Such a great job here!

Cosmic Booster Type

I first knew Chris Darmawan when he posted his technic MOC almost 2 years ago and now we happen in the same LUG (Bhinneka LUG). It turns out he also a Gunpla fans like I am, the difference is he still have the time and patience to paint Gunpla in his spare times besides building LEGO.

The model was based from the Gundam Tiefsturmer, but somehow I like what Chris’ interpretation rather than the real model reference which I think very clutter, but maybe that’s just my personal taste.

This build was made for an entry for Dunia Bricks, an annual public display and competition by our local LEGO distributor which held every March each year. It’s absolutely not a surprise that this build took home the Best Mech category in the competition, well just look at the shaping, details and size of this beauty! So awesome!

Congrats my friend, it’s very well deserved!

1950 Ford Radical Custom

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! 🙂

Misty Night on the Bayou

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

Crazy Fusion

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.

Digueta IWM Type D68 Mark II

I always respect builders who start by sketching their plan before they start building and Benjamin Cheh Ming Hann is one of them. I knew him quite a long time a go before his build widely known by the FOL community worldwide, his build always looks bulky and sturdy, packed with lots of detail with bright color accent which I like it a lot from the first time I saw his work back then.

This Digueta Mark II is one of my favorite build made by him. Luckily he also share his WIP during the making of this build and I always enjoy when builder share their building process to know what and how they are thinking when they build it.

Here is the process:

And here is the final result:

Other important note is, he also cleverly separate each section of his build which makes it easier to carry it anywhere, like this:

This is the main body section:
