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 🙂

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 🙂
Before I have all the fancy photography equipment, back then when I was still studying at a design school, we as a broke students have to find ways and more creative to get at least the similar result like the pros for our photography class.
One of the the simple little secret we found back then was to use a lightbox to shot object to look like pros, and here is a video tutorial I made to make a simple basic DIY (Do-It-Yourself) lightbox tips. I hope it can inspires or can helps your photography result in someway 🙂
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 🙂
This build was made by deborah higdon who’s one of my favorite builder and in my opinion she is one of the best minifig scale interior builder around. She made this outstanding build a while a go with soooo much interesting thing and awesome details for me to write and show it all here, I suggest you to visit her album and I bet you’ll be amaze! 🙂
This is such an interesting idea, she use gelatin to fill the pool and hot tub, specifically it was knox gelatin packages, mixed with water. Based on what she’d experience, this was meant for public display purpose. The gelatin can last for 3 days if nobody touch it but if often touched it will grow mold on it on day 2.
One other thing that caught my eyes was how cleverly she use Garage Roller Door for the glass wall here, it looks modern and beautiful at the same time.
Here are some furniture she made for the interior with lots of clever part usage:
At a glance this build by Ordo will look like just another ordinary vignette, but if you look closer there lots of complicated SNOT (Stud Not on Top) technique being used all over this vignette, from the backdrop wall to the floor.
He used SNOT technique so well in here that everything looks so natural to support the vignette story without stealing the show, and that is not an easy task in my opinion.
One other thing that caught my interest was the floor technique, luckily Ordo shares how he cleverly made that 🙂 Please credit him if you use this technique 🙂
Here is how he made the floor:
Here is other vignette sample made by Ordo using the same floor technique:
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!
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!
