Bricking The Halls! – Part 1 (Trimming The Tree)

Updated Guides Available

Looking for something fun to do with the kids, shut-in roommates or that feral cat you found in your Christmas tree? Why not start decorating that cat infested tree with some fancy LEGO ornaments?

You could head to your local Hallmark store and grab this years official LEGO Star Wars ornament and I highly suggest that you (or a loved one looking to get you something geeky as a gift) do, or you could build your own! “But buriedbybricks,” you say because you spend far to much time talking to your computer (I CAN’T HEAR YOU GUYS!), “I just don’t have the time. If I sit down to design an ornament, my kids or shut-in roommate may loose interest and I’m already feeling a little woozy from the feral cat bites.” No problem.

Chris (Powerpig) McVeigh has got you covered. He’s added a sweet Slave I ornament to his Star Wars collection and even gone back and tweaked his previous models for 2013. “But buriedbybricks, I don’t really like Star Wars, do you have any other suggestions?” Again, I can’t hear you and I don’t know how you even ended up here at this point, but YES! Chris has plans for over 40 ornaments! Choose from the classic gaming question mark box or the even more classic box associated with question marks and many, many more.

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to start bricking the halls.

Massive Millennium Falcon Escapes Tiny Death Star

"I hope the old man got the tractor beam out of commission."

I’ve seen some great uses of the new Death Star Planet piece, but the most obvious can be the best in the hands of an artist. I’m jealous of Blockaderunner‘s MOCs, of his collection and most importantly his mad photography skills. The perspective in this shot is perfect as is the lighting. For another example, the shot below is a composite of two pictures he took with the the background altered and displayed on his TV with the bikes in the foreground.

"Keep on that one, I'll take these two."

“Star Cars” Lightning McFalcon, or Millennium McQueen, or. . . something. . .

Check out this intriguing mash-up by Raphael Heusser that combines two of our favorite vehicles: Star Wars’ Millennium Falcon and Lightning McQueen of Cars. I suppose the most fitting tagline here would be, “To infinity, and beyond!”
