Its Been a While December 3, 2009

As with most Teenage Lego Builders, school takes up a good portion of life. Certainly, I am no exception. It seems that a mix of schoolwork, homework, music, sports, and just normal social activities have kept me busy and away from a hobby I love. Recently, I have tried to get back with the community.

Well, lets kick it off with a new creation from our very own Zack Milenius(Newright).
The Reconstruction of Fort Oswald

As usual, Newright brings us a well crafted, detailed, beautifully executed, large pirate themed layout. The Reconstruction of Fort Oswald is a great little (large) creation, and has some great features, not to mention a large ship of the line entering the harbor. He brings in some SNOT techniques with the smooth water, and some cliff construction techniques with the rocks on the left-hand side.

As usual, great job Zack. Now, perhaps we can get you back on track with your SHIP.

A deep sea exploration suit; SubApoc.

pyreƒyre brings us yet another beautiful hardsuit, this time, for the ocean blue. This is the most recent of his hardsuit’s and is certainly excellent. I find myself thinking it hard to believe that some people can get their suits so complicated. I would easily rank this suit equal to that of Tim Z.’s or Chucks.

Red Faction: Guerrilla

Ursprünglich hochgeladen von Crimson Wolf

I gotta say, this little dune buggy by Crimson Wolf– based on a vehicle from Red Faction: Guerrillais pretty flippin’ awesome, but it’s the Martian backdrop that completes the scene. A good MOC is always furthered by good presentation, and this counts for both.

Of course, the buggy itself is the main thing here, and a nice buggy it is!

Castle Braedacre

Originally uploaded by Shadow Viking

This hæs got to be the lærgest LEGO work ever constructed by fellow blogger Peder Peter (who also displayed it at BrickWorld). Allegedly drawing an archaic etymology from the Old English for “Flat Field”, the fortress is aptly named. Additionally, the architecture is rather aesthetically pleasing and appears to be an attempt to emulate the Norman style that became popular in England after the year 1070 AD. The light gray curves and bends are beautifully fluid, but also note the Tudor style second floor and the wooden stables that break up the otherwise contiguous gray walls rather well.

Also, there’s viking-Aunt-May-archers!

BrickWorld 2009 was for the most part, a great success. The real highlight was the Micropolis, and the Space display, for me. Space has died ever since Brickfest ’06, however, this year, Starfighters and SHIP’s ruled the half the tables of AMCP display. Castle was a little disappointing this year, but it was still cool since Peter brought along his castle. The vendors were expensive as usual. This year, there were not as many trains, which is a good thing and a bad thing for many people. All in all, a great convention with a staggering 556 attendees.

^That wasn’t even all of the SHIP’s. There were two more.

Some Towers by Adam Tucker

Now, all we have to do is start preparing for BrickWorld 2010. Next year, we have the whole hotel.

Preparing to Breach

Originally uploaded by scōtt blānk

Flickr user scōtt blānk is a master of tiny, impeccably detailed military vignettes, and this one, “Preparing to Breach” does not disappoint. The best vignettes are the ones that have emotional qualities, and I love the air of barely contained tension this vignette conveys, with the soldier waiting in anticipation as the ticking time-bomb gets closer and closer to exploding.

Scott’s skill with details shows through with elements like the broken window glass and the beautifully simple generator.

Hellebarde Heavy Fighter

Originally uploaded by Clancy McDonald

This fighter by Clancy McDonald, a relative newcomer, is awesome. And it’s based on Jacob (memory)’s equally awesome Taki-Tsu-Hiko, which makes it even awesomer.

Can you tell I like saying ‘awesome’? And more importantly, can you tell I like this thing?

Because I do.

Compact, well built, and inspired by Appleseed. What’s not to love about this brilliant little hardsuit by Tekka Croe?
