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 … Continue reading LEGO The Hobbit — The Company

LEGO Game Of Thrones — House Stark Sigil

It’s becoming almost passé 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. First of all it’s LEGO and that makes every­thing cooler. But also it’s extremely well executed as a poster. The image takes advan­tage of the three dimen­sional nature of the Dire Wolf sigil to cast shadows and texture across itself and then empha­sizes that further by placing it on a stark black back­ground. Finish that off with care­fully crafted text using the “Winter Is Coming” slogan and you have a very striking poster. Its harsh simplicity very much embodies the house which it seeks to repre­sent. Omar Ovalle has an eye for both LEGO and design in general I think.

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 shot. Some­thing that tells a story as well as showing off the LEGO models.

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

LEGO Princess Bride — The Final Duel

Inigo Montoya: Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die. Count Rugen: Stop saying that! A movie classic skill­fully recre­ated by a group of nine LEGO builders as part of a 14 vignette collab­o­ra­tion depicting scenes from The Princess Bride. This one is called The Final Duel and of course … Continue reading LEGO Princess Bride — The Final Duel

LEGO Superheroes — Green Arrow

Obvi­ously LEGO have been selling a variety of super­hero sets for some time now under license from both DC Comics and Marvel Comics. But this build by Nicolas Picot is some­thing very different and oh so impres­sive. For a start it’s about 20 inches in height and if that’s not enough there are 44 points of artic­u­la­tion which is more than many action figures have. Yes, this is a posable LEGO figure of Green Arrow. And from the lack of hood and yellow fuzz on the chin I’d guess this is the comic book version rather than the WB’s Arrow (though I like that version just fine too). Nicolas Picot actu­ally has several photos up on his Flickr account showing this LEGO Green Arrow in different posi­tions. If this picture alone doesn’t impress you then surely that will. Source:

LEGO Spaceships — Reckless Abandon

Space­ships are cool. LEGO is cool. LEGO Space­ships are…  kinda neat. This build by Chris Maddison is a very distinc­tive and rather alien looking space­ship that he calls the Reck­less Abandon. Chris has used the classic LEGO Space color scheme and the center­piece light brick (which gives it that alien feel) the result is an extremely stylish fighter ship.
