This impressive spaceship MOC was recently built and shared by LEGO fan and flickr.com user BobDeQuatre who is known for his great space MOC's and was blogged here multiple times with his incredible creations. The shaping of ARES-3 is very unique and I realy liked the usage of different shades of the pink/violet on the hull as a trim color. According to the description this MOC was based on one of the builders LDD MOC which was created exactly three years ago.

Awesome Gundam Barbatos Model by d' Qiu Brick


LEGO fan and flickr.com user d' Qiu Brick a.k.a. dennis qiu who is known for his figure/beast MOC's recently shared this awesome Gundam Barbatos MOC in his photo-stream. I'm not a big Gundam fan myself but I always admired the aesthetic look of the Gundam mechas especially if they are brick-built. The shaping of the model is amazing and the white-pink color-scheme looks extraordinary. The builder stated that he was inspired by this model which has the more common white/darkblue color-scheme.

LEGO fan and flickr.com user Tim Clark a.k.a. Tim C76 who is known for his great space MOC's especially amazing starships, shared this awesome micro-scale starship model in his flickr photo-stream. The shaping of the hull and the wing style extensions are great. Gray sections evenly distributed over the ship makes the ship look even better. My favorite part is the engine section which looks clean and neat. The ship was displayed on Brickword 2016 and the builder shared a photo from the displayed where you can see the weapons have a firing effect which is is done with transparent antenna pieces.

Leave me alone Don't leave me alone, a sculpture by David Hughes

Brick artist David Hughes a.k.a. daveh_design shared his latest brick-sculpture named "Leave me alone Don't leave me alone" in his flickr.com photo-stream. According to the description this creation was built using 5,000 standard bricks and not plate or any other type of pieces. Catching the perfect shape without using detail pieces is really hard and the builder managed to build this awesome shape as his previous creations. This is not the first time David was blogged here. Check out the "Afternoon of a Faun", another amazing creation of the artist.

LEGO fan and flickr.com user soccersnyderi who is known for amazing historical MOC's recently shared this great medieval fantasy building from the famous video game Skyrim. In the game Sigurd is the name of a character who works in a general goods store. I really like the texturing on the wall (the builder also shared the tutorial for it) and the street floor but my favorite part is the interior shown in the photo below.

The back of the building can be opened revealing the interior full with furnitures and other types of decorations matching the details you see in the game.

Why Does Stepping on Legos Hurt So Much?


Youtube channel Today I Found Out shared this nice informational video answering the question: "Why Does Stepping on Legos Hurt So Much?" from a scientific point of view. Although using the term "Legos" is incredibly wrong among us LEGO fans its good to learn the science behind the pain you feel every time you step on bricks.

Here we battle with winter


LEGO Fan and flickr.com member Gabriel Thomson shared his MOC that includes a Viking Hut and a wooden tower to observe the kingdom. Gabriel created a typical Viking hut that's roof is full of snow . I liked the disorder of the snow above the ground and icy sea. Maybe the tree need some snow effect too.
