There Was an Old Man

That's what came to mind when I saw this, since the cottage is so crooked. But hey, it's quite effective here.

The rockwork, the sagging roof, the boards on the front, it all works together to make one heck of a sweet MOC. Nicely done, David.

Caught on Camera

These wonderful pictures are done by Leda Kat, and are extremely wonderful! The lego scenes themselves are not only amazing, but the ghost in each one is just eye catching! I love every different build, here are a few more:

How she made the ghost see through is astonishing! Even though it was photoshopped, she did an excellent job of it, making it still look clean, and perfect. She certainly did a lot of them, and made each picture special in its own way. Check out the full set of pictures on MOCpages!

Narnia: Ambush at the Waterfall

This eye catching scene is built by Simon S., and is just wonderful to look at. This is one of my favorite scenes from Narnia, and Simon did a fantastic job recreating it in Lego! The falling waterfall is wonderful, and that wolf design is fantastic! His trees are also fantastic, and the border just completes this spectacular creation! View it on MOCpages and flickr!

Millennium Falcon

This is probably one of the best forced perspective creations I have ever seen. Built by Blake Baer, he pays attention to every small detail. All the different ships in the background are awesome! His control panel is very accurate, and well built! His windshield is super accurate, and the design is awesome as well. There are to many awesome details to list, you have to check it out for yourself, on MOCpages and flickr!

Cair Paravel

Commission: Cair Paravel

This wonderful build is built by my good friend Paul Vermeesch and local elementary students for the C.S. Lewis festival in Petoskey, Michigan. This large diorama of the Narnian Castle of Cair Paravel is just beautiful to look at! The angles achieved in this build are wonderful, I really like all the different sections, and the rockwork is amazing! The cheese slope beach is a fantastic idea! There are tons of wonderful details, to many to list them all. Check it out for yourself on flickr!

Good Things Come in Small Packages

Well, if you can call a 32x32 small. What I was referring to was that this build is microscale. There's a contest going on over at the Classic-Castle Forums in which you have to build a microscale castle, no bigger than 32x32. I've entered, but my entry was disqualified due to non-purist elements used, so I'm building madly trying to finish another entry without those elements. Toltomeja doesn't seem to have been rushed, and it shows. I love this.

The fact that the walls aren't even straight is awesome.

Don't Compare Yourself, They Say

I say, when I see something like this, I can't help but compare my Ferkel to spook's Ferkel. Mine pales completely in comparison.

Here is mine (shameless self-promotion, I know. It's for a good cause.):

And here is Tim's amazing version:

Please, take your pick. I pick Tim's, myself. Plus that little SAFS is the icing on the cake.

Phew. I was getting worried.

After Calin's amazing show last year, I was hoping he'd do something like it again this year. Alas, his love of rat rods was too great, and he spent the last month creating some sweet rides, one of which we've blogged here. But to my surprise and joy, he's managed one Ma.K creation for this year, and I'm hoping he'll still make a couple more.

SAFS spAce

That helmet combination is genius.

This creation is just a monster! Look at the size! Amazing work here, this is built by Marco Tagliaferri, and is just mind blowing! With 25 geared points of articulation, it has many different poses, as you can see by the pictures! I love the washing the dishes, but that throwing pose just takes the cake! Check out this jaw dropping monster creation on flickr!

This will be displayed at the 10th annual Bricking Bavaria this November in Munich.

Clean and Simple

Clean and simple. A perfect example of this statement are these two MOCs:

Lake Worth Gold Mine, by Fianat

A Safe Haven, by General JJ

Both (well, technically there are three) of them went all the way to add a beautiful border to the edge that compliments them perfectly.
Bravo, you guys.

Letholdus Cottage

Built by yours truly (me, Matthew Oh), this is probably one of my best creation!

I built this as part of a backstory build for Guild of Historica over on Eurobricks.

I am extremely happy with this creation, and it was tons of fun to build as well!

The design at the bottom of the house, using the studs is by Luke Watkins, you should check him out!

More pictures on MOCpages!


This awesome creation is built by Riccardo Zangelmi, and is just epicness! I love the lighting setup, and the whole creation just makes you brain go wacko. It looks like the real art by ESCHER, except in LEGO form! Well done Riccardo! View it on MOCpages!

Spirit of Bonneville

Angka Utama is back with another car. This time, it isn't his usual stuff. Normally he's making slick racing cars, but today it's an older, more antique-looking car. While personally I wouldn't photograph yellow on white, obviously Angka knows how to do it and make it look good.

Quite a cool-looking car.

To Maschinen Krieger... and Beyond!

This beauty by Sydag is exactly what I'd want to build if I that much white and red. Since I don't, I'll just sit back and admire it. I suggest you do the same.

(Aren't you glad you did, now?)

Tiger Mosaic

Now THIS is totally impressive, and mind blowing! Build by JamesUniverse, this fantastic mosaic has left my jaw on the floor! What a work of art! So detailed! I love the realistic look of this mosaic, the farther you look, the better it gets! Check out this masterful, wonderful, and magnificent mosaic on MOCpages!

Ma.K. Eggeater

Before you ask, I have no idea where it got that name. I looked it up. But regardless of where the name came from, this is still an awesome MOC. The angles are quite difficult on the original Eggeater model, so the fact that CaptainInfinity was able to capture it so well is quite cool.

The simple sand blue color on the side piece (is it an arm? I don't really know) is perfect, and an added plus is the PKA ausf.F Fliege (the little mech-type thing).

Odd colors, meet tardisblue.

You know, I never dreamed purple, olive green, and yellow could go together so well on a spaceship. Apparently tardisblue knew they did. Shows what I know.

The missile pods balance the dual back fins well, and the landing gear is perfect. As a side note, this was judged Best Spaceship at BrickCon 2013. Congratulations, tardisblue!

It is always my pleasure to invite you to participate in the Lego community’s tradition of giving back!

This eye catching moc built by Bart De Dobbelaer is just marvelous! The in this amazing diorama are fantastic! From the walker, scout, and armadillo vehicles to the fantastic curvature angles, this piece just screams of detail! I especially love the vehicles, they alone are spectacularly built! There are so many more details to note, but you have to check it out for yourself, on flickr!

All right, I admit it.

I'm really liking Maschinen Krieger. Last year, I disliked it, but I suspect it's because I couldn't make any of the designs. I was too lazy to make an SAFS, didn't feel like trying to get the odd curves on some of the Ma.K. vehicles and ended up doing something non-canon. Which turned out terribly, with terrible photography. This year, I am trying to redeem myself. So it's natural I look up designs and other people's Lego Ma.K. stuff. While going through my contacts this morning, I found this beauty.

Ma.K. Zerstover, by CaptainInfinity

Apparently this design is incredibly rare, which would explain why I didn't find looking for designs. I'm sure glad Logan found it, otherwise we wouldn't have this sweet MOC.

Tiinusu X tres - Recon Class

Fredoichi's creations have always been a source of wonder to me. They're so clean, well-photographed, and beautifully executed. This mech is no exception, in fact, it's a perfect example of his work.

Look at that awesome design. The feet are spectacular, the legs are sweet and the color blocking is just perfect.

Passing Sherwood

This is a fantastic example of NPU (Nice Piece Usage). Built by LL Lolino, it just catches your eye, with tons of fantastic details! Using horns as white water, it gives it a wonderful look, and the round base makes it even better! Great landscaping, and tons of little detail puts this over the top! View it on MOCpages!

LCC - Escaping the Queens Castle

LCC-Escaping the Queen's Castle

This beautiful scene is built by Justin M, and is a fantastic example of forced perspective, and atmosphere! The whole scene just looks impressive, and if you look closely it is! :D The castle in the background looks well built, but is blurry enough so that you focus in on the character in the front, which is the main idea. He also has a second little scene in the comments, which also portrays a fantastic atmosphere. Check out this wonderful creation on flickr!

He's Back!

Yes, Calin is back. I have a special place in my heart for hot rods and antique cars, even if I don't consider myself an auto nerd. His BMW-Powered 1928 Ford Model A is such a cool car I couldn't resist blogging it. The photography, as is expected from him, is beautiful and the model is as good as it can get, as far as I can tell.

Lovely, _Tiler, just lovely.

Lego Helms Deep

What an eye popper! This is just jaw dropping! Look at the size of this masterful creation! Brought to you by Goel and Big J, this is just astonishing! There are over 150,000+ minifigs! I am overwhelmed by the size of it! The rockwork is extremely awesome, and the Deeping Wall is fantastic! Not to mention the well built stairs going up to the gate, or the Gigantic Hornburg towering above everything! I could go on and on on details! Well done, well done I say! View it on MOCpages!
