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.

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 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.
The latest issue of HispaBrick is ready for download and its got some familiar faces. Here’s the rundown in their own words:
In this new edition, Garry King presents his fleet of ships of the hit series Battlestar Galactica, Akiyuki Kawaguchi we marvel with modules GBC, Katie Walker teaches us to do mosaics with cheese slopes and interviewed the creator Bruce Lowell .
I explained how many of the projects of AFOLs can become a reality, either by LEGO ® CUUSOO or through Crowdfunding .
Section Pillars community this time we have the cooperation of The Brothers Brick and I tell our participation in various events that have taken place in recent months, and several reviews and tutorials LDraw, MINDSTORMS and Pneumatics.
And do not miss the second installment of the system MILS , a modular system composed of landscapes developed by a member of our community.
All that and a tribute to everybody’s favourite astromech*. What more could you ask for?**
