Mercedes-Benz SLR Mclaren 722 Edition by Alexander Paschoaletto

LEGO fan and MOCpages user Alexander Paschoaletto who is known for his great brick-built car models shared this beautiful Mercedes-Benz model in his page. The car is smaller than the Technic scale cars and larger than the usual creator size cars. It is approximately at the same scale with the official Ferrari F40 set and the builder used the windshield piece from that set. The detailing both for interior and exterior is amazing. There are lots of features on this car. The hood, the trunk and the doors can be opened. Even the seats are adjustable. I also liked that the Mercedes-Benz sign in front of the car was made with a steering wheel piece instead of a sticker. The look of the car is very detailed and resembles the real car very much with all the signature textures and curvature.

Futuristic Military Aircraft: Bell V-35


This futuristic military aircraft model, Bell V-35 is shared by LEGO fan and flick.com user Sunder_59 in his photo-stream. I like the overall design and the color blocking on this vehicle. Actually this is a very high quality computer render picture rather than not a physical model but it deserved to be blogged with his impressive design. You can find the original 3d model of the vehicle in this mecabricks page. Custom figures with camo uniforms fits the vehicle very well. Rotating engines/propellers and the cockpit are the most beautiful sections in my opinion.

Scary Zerg Creatures from Starcraft by d' Qiu Brick


LEGO fan and flickr.com user d' Qiu Brick a.k.a. dennis qiu who was recently blogged here with his Transforming Sci-Fi Fighter Plane: Terror R-17 built amazing alien creatures called Zerg from famous PC game Star Craft. The details of the alien monsters are incredible and resembles the models from the game very much. I especially like the Zergling. It's face looks really scary with all those teeth and red eyes. Zerg devourer in the photo below has also a nice and accurate shape and the vibrant color choice for the wings and the body fits the MOC very well. The terrain underneath the creatures were also built beautifully matching the details from the game including crystals and skeletons.

The design and texturing resembles the historical ships very much. Custom figures are looking very cool too. The ship also has a fully decorated interior with lots of figures in it.

Siege Engine Factory by Christophe


LEGO and Mobile game Clash of Kings fan Christophe has recently shared his latest MOC which represents a building in the popular game, Siege Engine Factory. Players can train trebuchets and other castle siege machines in this building. It is very neat design that includes so many details about siege workshop like a heavy-duty crane and some wood-work to create a new war machine. I mostly liked the arched door below stairs.

Special Interview with John Snyder a.k.a. jsnyder002


This weeks guest of honor is a very talented TFOL from USA, John Snyder a.k.a. jsnyder002. His impressive MOC's were blogged many times in various blogs around the net including tilesorstuds. He is well known for his great historical vignettes but his Sci-fi creations are amazing as well. Photos from the work of our guest will be presented between the questions.

Kaplan: We already know that you are one of the best MOC'ers. What can you tell us about yourself other than that? What is your day job? Do you have any other hobbies or activities?

John: Well, I definitely don't consider myself one of the best MOC'ers; there are lots of builders more talented than I. I'm a TFOL from the USA and work part time on a dairy farm, though my main occupation right now is school. My main activity besides building with LEGO, is playing soccer (football for all of you outside the US), either in a local league or just for fun.




K: Do you remember your first day when you get your first LEGO set?

J: I don't really remember the first set, as all my siblings had LEGO growing up, so it was always around me. But the first set that I recall getting is 7236.

MOC builder and flickr.com user Horcik Designs who was blogged in our site with a sci-fi creation G3 Dropship for some time ago shared, this incredible Technic race car in his photostream. The name of the creation describes the car very well. It's nearly panel-less. The body is shaped completely with lift-arms except the rear mudguards. Although I mostly prefer vibrant colors on Technic creations this car is looking great with dark bluish gray color as well. The creator also shared a video showing all the features of this great MOC.

Orgrim Doomhammer from WoW


Talented MOC builder and flickr.com user LEGO 7 built and recently shared this impressive big figure MOC, Orgrim Doomhammer which is a World of Warcarft character. The shaping and the accessories of the figure are all done amazingly well. I especially liked how the hands and the face is modeled. The realistic and organic look of the body is achieved by using lots curved slope pieces all around the body. The base was also built nicely with the stone statues etc.
