Judge Bao

I’m not sure who is this character since Kijpakorn Sothiworanun‎ from Thailand who’s the creator of this awesome custom fig didn’t describe and mention any detail of it.

Based on the overall looks it reminds me a lot of a legendary character called Judge Bao who was a respected judge in China’s Song Dynasty and has become as the cultural symbol of justice in Greater China Region.

For context, here is the Judge Bao character from the TV series Justice Bao:

Dutch Bar & Family Apartment

This Dutch style building made by Barrie Crossan contains a bar on the ground floor and a two-bedroom family apartment on the upper floors. What I like the most besides the overall building and all the details is how Barrie use those Vehicle, Fairing 1 x 4 Side Flaring Intake with Two Pins for the cornice work around the top of the building. Such a beautiful and lovely building!

Grunkle Stan

I never heard of Grunkle Stan and I’ll not pretend to knew it, but after seeing this awesome painted fig by TheMooseFigs (Dylan), I did some digging I think he really nailed the character with his mad paint skills!

This fig is one of the entry for MAYnifigure 2016 challenge. See more awesome fig creations on that link and you’re welcome to join and participate 🙂

Custom Lego Gravity Falls: Grunkle Stan

 

Here is a Grunkle Stan video for context. Like what Dylan said, the character is “Surprisingly funny, emotional, and action packed.”

M.K.008

As you probably know I always enjoy WIP shots to learn how the builder thinks through their building process. This mech by kenny_yan looks like have a great agility and speed with great proportion and such a unique design. It turns out he needs to take a lot of changes to achieve this final design, no wonder the final result is so awesome!

Here is the process he’d gone through:

Dreadnought 3.0

This build by Kelvin Low is such a monster with great proportion and shaping even looks tougher and mean than the Warhammer’s Dreadnought which he used as his reference.

One of the thing that I really enjoyed is seeing how he patiently improving and upgrading his build from time to time which in the same time reminding me to not easily satisfied with my own build.

This is actually his 3rd version of the Dreadnought, you can see all the previous version below which you can see what patience (and mad skill of course) can do. I wonder if there will be the 4th version 🙂

Star Wars Darth Vader’s Hilt

One of the thing that makes me want to try to build my self is because there are so many awesome MOCs out there that LEGO didn’t make their own official set, including Star Wars lightsabers hilt. It’s been too long I want to make this Darth Vader’s hilt and this build was inspired by a lot of previous builders who have made this kind of brick built hilt which inspired me to try to build in the first time. Thanks a lot guys! 🙂

I hope you enjoy my build on this video:

Star Wars Grand Carousel

Imagine if the imperial army have their own amusement park, I bet this carousel will be one of the main ride. For sure I’ll be standing on the line to wait my turn to try it 😀

This build was made by Anton Budiono, an Indonesian builder which happen in the same LUG as I am. He is a long time fans of Star Wars and have made some interesting Star Wars related build which you can see it in his photostream.

May the 4th Be With You!

It’s already May 4th here and it’s the day where Star Wars fans around the world celebrating their love of Star Wars. To join the celebration, I’ll be blogging several Star Wars related creations 🙂

These figs series was created by a friend of mine Alexander W. He is a low profile custom fig collector with insane collection in his hands. You may have seen a monochrome figs collections before which I personally have my own too, but what makes this monochrome figs unique was because it feature specifically Star Wars characters, which he is a fan of it.

It took a long time for him to get to this point, by patiently hunting for the exact color piece he needs and erase the prints using Brasso.
