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.

Eurobricks member and LEGO Fan Gabe has shared his latest creation "Fabuland Hobbiton" in Eurobriks forum and in his Brickshelf gallery. This creation is a layout he prepared for Brikvention 2014, a LEGO convention that took place in Melbourne. His amazing layout succesfully combines the world of Fabuland with the Hobbiton from the Lord of the Rings. Hobbit houses with fully decorated interiors, motorized windmill and a beautiful waterfall are some of the great features from the layout.
The layout is detailed with floor textures, many furnitures and accessories
Some of the figures were hand painted to fit the Hobbit theme better, wheras i made others little vests and dresses out of fabric. Additionally the windmill is equipped with power function pieces and with a switch at the back making the sails on the windmill turn

LEGO Fan and Flickr member Elliot Feldman (Simply Complex Simplicity) shared the biggest Oliphaunt MOC on the internet. The shaping of the oliphaunts body, legs and head is really amazing. Elliot cleverly used black eagle and dragon wings as flags. Terrain details like pine-trees and rocks are also looking good. Unlike any other olihaunt creation this one has an interior of its own full of mechanical control units and even a mini-frigde. Check out Elliot's MOCpages for more details.
This oliphaunt is controlled with a driving wheel and AT-AT control unit!!!
Lego fan Kumbll has shared these cute creations in his Brickshelf gallery. These tiny cars are the micro versions of the famous LEGO Technic sets from 90's. The shaping and coloring of the micro creations match the original sets very accurately.

Flicker member and LEGO Fan Jimmy aka 6kyubi6 has built an incredible working pinball with LEGO parts. He used iconic pieces and minifigures from the Star Wars licensed sets for the pinball. There is also mini diorama of the Jabba's Palace placed under a transparent panel in the middle of the board which is really creative. This will be probably one of the unforgettable creations of the 2014. Check out the video of the pinball here.

There are hundreds of battlesuits and mechas are built for the regular minifigures each year. Flickr member Lu Sim a.k.a Messymaru has built one for the dragons. I like creations designed for other LEGO "species". With this creation the dragons will be a part of the LEGO space. He used red as the main color and transparent neon green for the details which fits the black dragon very well. (I personally like these colors since I am an M-Tron fan.) He became really successful creating an organic shape combining modified plates, hinges and slopes together with bionicle pieces.

We don't usually post about digital designs in this blog unless they are realy awesome. This time an awesome creation is from Eurobricks member Fox Hound. He created a microscale super star destroyer from Star Wars in LDD + LDRAW. He used 71.000 pieces to complete the ship. Additionally he also built other ships featured in the Battle of Endor (from the movie: Star Wars Episode VI). The battle looks really amazing. Here is the Brickshelf gallery link for more high resolution pictures from the ship.
Flickr member Imagine Rigney has shared his latest creation, the giant steampunk tarantula from the movie Wild Wild West (1999). The tarantula has many amazing details in high acuracy with the vechicle from the movie. I especially will how the legs are done. THe flexible bars and brown wheels really fits the walker. He even didnt forget he pneumatic pistons on the legs. The steam engine is also very detailed featuring tanks, valves, measuring devices and stack.

There is an ongoing LEGO contest in MOCpages named The Classic Space Pocket Money Contest II (closing date is Saturday 11 January). Pico van Grootveld (Brix 'n space) has shared his unique creation for this contest. His creation belongs to a space faction called Tequilatron. This theme colors are lime and white, which are most appropriate for lime and salt (Tequila!).
I like the way he build the drill with antenna legs with antennas and minifig utensil (dedector) pieces. The drill is a tripod with a laser beam. Generally, the creation has a real classic space look. He built the customized minifig with recolored futuron torso print. The helmet and airtanks are also lime colored.
He created custom set package images that look really aouthentic featuring the Legoland and LEGO brand logos. There are also two alternate builds for this custom set. One is a walker and the other one is a small space shuttle. Check out the part list and the creative Tequilatron logo.

Flickr member monsterbrick has shared his latest creation "Sandy Lego", an amazing microbuild. This in unlike any other microbuilds I have seen before. He succesfully created a scene with peace and harmony. His techniques are also most unusual. His ships are made of epaulettes, the sun and trees is made of headgears. The waterfall and the farm are created only using plates. I'm pretty sure that I have never seen a rainbow like this one in a MOC before.

It is definitely a must buy. It has a huge piece count too. You have 3 options with this one, love it buy it and display it; second one hate it buy it sell it when it retires for a huge profit; last one is hate it or rate it just buy it and use the parts (3rd option is highly dependent on price of this set but I assume that it won't be extremely expensive ( I have strong feeling that it will be at least cheaper than Tower of Orthanc) It has many cheap pieces, and there are not many special molds if we don't count the ugly heads. I will try to get two; one for me and one for investment.

The functions of this car included full independent suspension, rear wheel drive via a manual 4-speed gearbox and a V12 piston engine which was motorized in a realistic way. For more info about this beautiful creation visit his site.

We got this photo from The Lego Movie book. Maybe it is from second wave of Lego movie sets. I personally wish it is a real set not just a craft in a movie. For additional info we must wait and see.
2014 will be a great year exciting news just don't stop coming :D.

Another brickbuilt Santa model is created by Dave Caleta bus this one has no pants.

There are some creations that you dont belive at first sight that they are built with LEGO parts. Flicker member Misterzumbi's "The Rat Fink" Hot Rod car is one of this kind of creations. The details are really impressive. The picture of the car is looking like a comic book page. Honostly I think this creation is amazing and someting odd. I have never seen something like this before and like it.

Check out new Chima minifigures! Upcoming animals are awesome. My personal thought on that they will turn many haters into fans of Chima.Rhinos, spiders and bats are new molds. (Cragger seems to become a good guy) But more exciting ones are new bat wings, scorpion armor and spider legs. We will see this legs in many MOCs next year. 2014 seems to be a great year for lego fans.
