When Si-MOCs‘ posted this diorama in the MOC showcase this morning I found it quite amusing, because my son just learned this song on the school bus yesterday and has been singing it ever since. It will be on display in December at the Toronto LEGO Store in Fairview, so if you’re in that neck of the woods be sure to check it out.

Chris (Powerpig) McVeigh has capped off his Build-it-Yourself projects for the year with a little taste of Star Wars. He scaled this TIE Fighter to last year’s Millennium Falcon which as he says, allows you to stage an epic space chase right across your tree! PEW PEW!
Head on over to chrismcveigh.com/ and find out how to build it in both Classic White and Empire Grey, then get trimming. I know some of you already have your tree up…
I’m really starting to like these bust statuettes. I’ve always avoided buying them by using the excuse that they looked stupid without any arms, but that’s just a lie I’ve told myself to prevent the possibility of starting yet another collection. Fredoichi‘s use of stickers in this build is quite impressive and it took me a minute or two to really see what he’d done. I hope to see more of these builds in the future and this is one more reason I can’t wait until those new Legends of Chima wing pieces are in circulation.
This version of the Batcave created by Carlyle Livingston II & Wayne Hussey was highlighted by The Brothers Brick the other day, but it’s just too impressive not to spotlight here as well. The details are as amazing as the scale of the build and they managed to work a balance between the industrial finished sections of the cave and the fantastic rock work around them. The picture below featuring the two builders gives a sense of the creations scale and even manages to dwarf a couple of the largest SW sets in the process.
It’s impossible for me to pick a favourite part of this MOC, so take a look at the set on Flickr and let the pictures speak for themselves. Make sure you watch their videos too and check out the stats on this massive accomplishment.
We spent 400 hours each over three months building this. We started in Early January and finished in late March.
We estimate over 20,000 pieces but it’s probably much more.
It weighs in at 100 pounds.
Bruce Lowell says he’s wanted to do a Batman based MOC for some time as a tribute to the Nolan films and this art deco poster partly inspired by Batman: TAS was the result. This isn’t the first of of these mosaics I’ve felt needed to be shared and I hope it won’t be the last.
…And it’s made of LEGO.
Don’t you just hate it when you’ve got an uncompleted build sitting on the shelf and someone comes along and finishes it before you can? No, me either and quite frankly I enjoy seeing other people arrive at the finish line with a similar yet different conclusion. Mr.Attacki built this snazzy Arc Reactor and even lighted the thing for effect with great results. I’ll probably still finish my version when the depths of winter drive me into hibernation and I’ve little to keep me sane in the endless darkness beyond those colourful little distractions. Now someone needs to build a wearable version.
Trying to get caught up on my “To Do” list and this great build by Bruce Lowell has sat on top since I got sidetracked last week. I’m a huge fan of the geeksploitation Potato Heads and the Boba Fett version is the star in my tater collection (though Optimash Prime is a close second). I’m sure some see them as a blight on the face of a classic toy and feel these versions trample all over their precious childhood memories, so for those people… enjoy.
I’ve been on a bit of a Super Hero kick lately, with the Avengers due soon on DVD, all the rumours flying surrounding upcoming super films and everything else going on. When ninnymuggins shared this in the chatroom earlier today, I just couldn’t resist posting it. Mr.Attacki has done a nice job with this half-pint hero helmet that includes a flip up face mask and on top of that he’s even made some colour variants.
We’ve featured _Tiler‘s work here before with his amazing MINI-scale Tumblers and The Bat amongst other MOCs. This time, we’re featuring his MINI-scale Batpod. For me, it wasn’t until I saw the detail of the Star Wars Battle Droid head element used for the handlebars that really conveyed just how small of a scale this model is. He may have cheated a little by painting the element, but I’m sure even the most devout purists can agree that the alteration was worth it.
He also recreated the bomb truck from The Dark Knight Rises in MINI form:
