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!

Here is something I think should be blogged. Mdrn~Mrvls’, who is usually a strong vehicle builder, now brings us this “Office Building and 30s Car”. Of course, it does have a well built vehicle in it.
Office Building and 30s Car
This creation comes from a series of vehicles that Mdrn is building stretching from a fire engine to a dump truck.

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.

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.

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.

Tekka Croe has just built a fantastic little Power Miners MOC. Really nice for what he calls a “quick little… MOC”. Wacky-awesome shape, too- and I love the integration of the hockey mask in the back.

Murder at the museum… March 23, 2009

Museum

Originally uploaded by remyth

Remyth excellently illustrates a murder scene on the sidewalk of an extremely gorgeous museum. While I love the caution tape around the body, my eyes are drawn to the museum itself, and architectural beauty and chock full of great details.

Better still, it’s also compatible with Green Grocer and the other modular LEGO town sets.
