Let the Guardians of the Galaxy MOCs Begin!

LEGO Star-Lord Bust

This Star Lord bust by Bruce Lowell caught my eye the other day and a quick spin through my contacts revealed he is not alone in his galactic guardian geekery. The usual suspects are up to their old tricks and once again quick out of the gate.

Rocket Raccoon is looking for trouble in his prison threads by Jordan Schwartz.

It's barely a concept

And finally this mini Milano by SPARKART! is a treat and I can’t wait to see it in the brick when he’s got all the parts in order.

I look forward to more Guardians MOCs and to hitting the theater again this week for a much needed second viewing.

An Elegant Weapon For A More Civilized Age

LEGO Luke Skywalker's Lightsaber

Another Monday, another metric tonne of neat stuff to post. It’s hard to resist the urge to spam everyone into oblivion, but some things are just to good to resist. This replica of Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber by the always busy (where do you people find all this time to build??) Bruce Lowell comes complete with a full blade comprised of 300+ 3×3 dishes. Well played Bruce! When I was building 1:1 scale lightsabers a couple years ago, I tested out the 2×4 half cylanders topped with a 4×4 dome and it worked pretty well. Well enough that I purchased enough in trans-blue (the pic I have of the expperiment was a fugly rainbow) and played around with the idea of running a rope light through it, but the purist in me won out again. This dish technique gives the edge a fuzzy look that really adds something in pictures. Bet it wasn’t cheap though.

OneLUG Debuts New Works at An Unexpected Art Show

OneLUG

Earlier tonight I attended the the one-night-only An Unexpected Art Show with my family. The Tower of Orthanc was there in all its imposing glory. But that wasn’t all. The members of OneLUG debuted new art pieces at the show, a series of three builds depicting different symbols from the Lord of the Rings. In order from left to right in the picture above: The White Tree of Gondor by Brandon Griffith, The Horse of Rohan by Remi Gagné, and The White Hand of Saruman by Bruce Lowell.

Bruce Lowell’s Silent Guardian

The Silent Guardian - 3D Batman Mosaic

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.
