Hoth: IT’S A…

For a contest at the CABG titled ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ we were challenged to build a scene on Hoth that was to include at least 1 Rebel, and 1 Snowtrooper. I did more than that, but  decided to take a humorous approach with the battle. The scene depicts some Rebels on a scouting patrol through the trenches when they come across (snow) Vader, and think that they have him surrendered and cornered for capture. They’re got a little surprise waiting. In the wise words of Admiral Ackbar “IT’S A TRAP!”

Putting the ‘Adult’ in AFOL

I’ve had this gem tucked away amongst my favorites for such a long time and I finally decided to do something about it.  Janey Redbrick added this master piece called ‘Sticks and Stones‘ to an already impressive photostream.

This may push the limits of bloggable LEGO creations for this group, but this was built and presented so incredibly well that it couldn’t be passed up any longer.

Survival on Dantooine

Our own Kevin Murney just posted this wonderful little Star Wars diorama for the 54th Eclipse Corps inner corps build-off at the CABG (whatever that is …I’m not a SW guy).    There is some great action and attention to detail here but Kevin has really pulled through with some amazing parts usage, the wheat alone makes this noteworthy.  …great technique Kevin!

Rural Living

Over the past week or so, Mdrn~Mrvls has been posting a series of farm equipment in his photostream. The coup-de-gras is his most recent addition of this iconic red barn.  You guys know that I am a sucker for detail, and he didn’t miss a thing, down to the weather vane and a spot-on windmill.

For Those of You About to Rock!

The Thunder From Down Under, Shannon Ocean, gives us this rockin’ microscale robot destroyer of mankind.  Though many of his creations are a tad on the cerebral side, this one is obviously about metal.  From the Flying V to the city in rubble to the captured motion, Shannon hit his mark with this great build!

I can’t think of many other better ways to go.

Game Over Man! Game OVER!

I don’t know if I have a mancrush on Cole Blaq or just really dig the color yellow, but his “28W2G/D Ope-Gawri” is certainly another noteworthy creation.  You’ll see that the re-enforced operator cage and heavy-duty lift arms make this minifig more than ready for a night on the town with Chris’ mo…
