LEGO Lord of the Rings - Then King of the Golden Hall

LEGO builder Cameron Wilson has constructed this lovely version of Edoras (King Theoden's capital in Rohan) from The Lord of the Rings and it's a wonderful bit of work. I strongly recommend you click through to Wilson's post where he has a bunch more detail photos (including inside the hall where Gandalf faces down Wormtongue) and a surprising easter egg. You can find that  over at MOCPages.. Continue reading...

LEGO The Hobbit - The Company

It's been a while since I posted a good #LEGO build for people to enjoy and it's time to correct that with this impressive set of characters from The Hobbit (Peter Jackson movie versions). The entire of Thorin Oakenshield's company is on display here and the scale used to build them allows for a lot of detail. Pate-keetongu has done a phenomenal job with all of these builds. Apparently it took him most of two years, but you can easily see where the time went. Make sure you clic through to see the closeup shots of the individual dwarves, Bilbo and Gandalf.

LEGO Game Of Thrones - House Stark Sigil

It's becoming almost passe to do artistic variations on the sigils of the various houses from Game of Thrones. But this one is worth bringing to your attention for a few reasons.

LEGO Star Wars - Darth Malgus Lands On Hoth

Christoffer Östberg or East Mountain as he goes by on Flickr produces LEGO imagery that can only be described as beautiful. They're also wonderfully geeky and Star Wars related which is a bonus. It's the attention to detail which puts these photographs over the top though. Sure they're using some good LEGO Star Wars models, but look at this one for example. The carefully moody lighting with shadows cast. The snow falling. Christoffer has created a real atmosphere with the staging of this… Continue reading...

LEGO Sci-Fi - The Settlement on Epherna 1

Here's a creative use of the micro-scale building style to present a whole city (and not just any city but a futuristic space port) in a tiny space. Tim Clark has done some great work with this build giving a real sense of a big, busy city complete with buildings and a biodome. And then he's topped it off with a couple of micro-scale spaceships either coming in to land or taking off Source: Flickr - Settlement on Epherna 1. Continue reading...
