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!

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.

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.

Fascinating race, the Weeping Angels. The only psychopaths in the universe to kill you nicely. No mess, no fuss, they just zap you into the past and let you live to death. The rest of your life used up and blown away in the blink of an eye. You die in the past, and in the present they consume the energy of all the days you might have had, all your stolen moments. They’re creatures of the abstract. They live off potential energy.

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.

Eagle

Zarlighttusk‘s eagle is simply brilliant. It’s quite easily recognizable, and the fish is a very nice touch.

Bird Boy Kristian excellently illustrates his (quirky and brilliant) vision of a futuristic classroom. I’m especially liking the chalkboard.

Barney puts a creative twist on the Renaissance Fair concept to make this pair of dioramas depicting the an anachronistic rollercoaster built at a medieval carnival – an alternative source for Dwarfish income as well as an alternate use for their excavation skills. Be sure to check out the other half of the scene on flickr, perhaps built together for Classic-Clastle’s Job Müller contest.
