Eurobricks.com and Flickr member I Scream Clone has shared his MOC depicting an alien race the Pumpkonians who are living in the deserts of the Planet Agreon. The building style of the MOC reminds me the planet Tatooine from Star Wars. Here is the creators description about the Pumpkonians:
"Pumpkonians have learned how best to exploit the natural resources while turning a space buck or two. Commandeering bits and pieces from downed star ships and bartering with otherworldly conglomerates keen to mine the rich Ioth gas deposits for their jump gate technologies, the Pumpkonians have all they need for a simplistic life style."
I always like the idea of creating custom alien races and I Scream Clone hes done it very well. I like the simple but effective designs of many little equipment all around the MOC. Building gas tanks out of Death Star half-spheres is also a very good idea. Different types of desert animals like camel, scorpion and ostriches are nice additions to the creation. The band conveyor is one of the best details in this MOC for sure.

Flickr member and LEGO Fan Chris McVeigh a.k.a powerpig has created his beautiful two door, retro, red fridge with full of details. Details vary from fishes to turkey, from wine to custom printed coke can. I like the cooling system in the back the most.

Flickr and TurkLUG member and co-founders of tilesorstuds.com Brick Burger has shared his latest creation, Rapid Artillery Vehicle that he built for the annual design contest in TurkLUG in his flickr photo stream. The details on the tread connections are great. The most outstanding part is probably the unique barrel. He used rail pieces to build it. Brick Burger thought us with this creation that even the "useless" parts could make creative MOC's like this one possible.
Flickr member and LEGO Fan Lukasz Wiktorowicz aka LL has shared this amazing model of the Battleship USS Alabama. The shaping of the hull is really impressive. The details of the weapons and structures make this creation one of the best military models in 2014. This model is 1/140 in scale and has a length of 151 cm. It has also a tin brick built flag which is a nice finish for a beautiful creation like this.

Flickr member and Lego Fan Oliveseon has shared this incredible diorama including a minifigure size destroyer anchored on a harbor city. This diorama is full of details and minifigures but what I like the most are the shaping of the ship hull and the colored smoke effect behind the fighters. He has done a very good job on the parade and the buildings as well. The modular buildings are also very well integrated to the diorama.

I always liked huge medieval castles built with LEGO since I was young. In recent years, after establishment of Bricklink and other online LEGO shopping possibilities along with new building techniques shared all over internet, we start to see new huge and detailed castles continuously. Flickr member and LEGO Fan Gideon_83 shared his latest medieval MOC "Mordana Castle" built for the Swebrick comunitybuilt which is one of the best and compact examples of castle MOC's. This castle is fictionally found in Avalonia. It has many little features that I have never seen before. I especially like the reeds in front of the walls and the design of the wooden doors.
The wall design is also great but not exclusively unique. The interior-exterior detailing of the castle is really amazing. There are rotating stairs, stone statue, well, a drawbridge and also a cute small stone bridge
Tile pieces in the stair fits the gap of the bricks impressively and makes it look really realistic.
Normally I am not found of roofs built with slopes but Gideon did a very good job on the roof of the building inside the castle combining red + dark red slopes and cylindrical mini towers around the roof.

Party Animal MOC contains the most hated minifig body parts and the most useless head piece but still looks awesome. Karf Oohlu is the most creative builder ever. Actually he is the definition of a builder, takes ugliest parts to combine the most beautiful. No more words, enjoy the silence!!!

LEGO Movie was on the cinemas and some creations has been started building in in term of displaying in the entrance of theaters. One of the displays in the theaters was this creation by DarthNick. Creation is not very fancy, but offers the essence of intro of movie. Also I can say that background wih boxes of full legos rather than using plain background reflects the motto of lego. After this creation you have got only one option - you must go this movie!
If you have not watch the trailer. Watch from here.
