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.

Those Riverside Breezes Can Get Rough July 25, 2009

Erdbeereis1 ventures back into the realm of town vignettes after having recently brought us some beautiful spaceships.

He says:
“Let’s take a walk along the river.
I built this mainly to try out this water idea, which I’ll use in much larger scale in a future MOC hopefully.”

What sold me on this creation was the arches and the water just below them. I could never seem to find a use for that particular piece, but now, since other people do my work for me, everything is well. While this MOC is generally fairly simple, I can see some complicated places which required some different pieces. All in all, it’s a great creation. I look forward to seeing the larger creation this will become!

Also note, this is at least the second time I’m writing about these two fellows here on this blog, both Tesla and Jordan, and hopefully not the last either!

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.

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

Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

Originally uploaded by Sir Nadroj

I really love this. Named after the hit swing-style tune, Sir Nadroj has delivered a gracefully rendered atmosphere fluently emphasizing Turkish architectural vernacular as well as a touch of cultural heritage with use of the Indian printed elements from the Orient Expedition product line. Although I slightly miss the ogee style arches so commonly associated with Byzantine design, I particularly fancy the fountain as both a realistically and aesthetically fitting facet to an overall beautiful scene (even despite the fact that Jordan has only built it and thrown it on flickr to boast the fact that he’s got his hands a certain piece earlier than most other people have. But hey, as a common follower of his work, that is something to which I have grown accustomed. This time he even admitted it. Ha!)

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.

While TF2 LEGO is almost as overused as the quotes, fellow blogger Nathan’s (Mister oo7) rendition of the memorable characters from Team Fortress 2 stood out to me as particularly accurate and well made. From the costumes to the brick built weapons, these minifigs are nothing short of brilliant.

There are so many LEGO creations out there which deserved to be written about. That being said, our blog nor any other Lego blog out there, including the Brother Brick, can write about every single well built LEGO creation. On that note, I feel that Tim Ltd, also known as” Wolfy T,” is a builder which deserved to be blogged more often. I think this diorama says it all. The great vehicles along with the landscape and action in makes for a great MOC.

What I like personally about this MOC is the water. It seems as though this is the first slopes water I have seen in a while. Well photographed, well organized, and a good looking bird.

Peter Anderson, known as Shadowviking on Flickr, and who I have the honor of calling my co-blogger, brings us this incredibly clever little scene, an entry for the Classic-Castle Job Muller’s Contest.
