Feel the Vivacity!



Rustic Corner is a pretty easy build but it this moc looks so alive. It can change your mood to happy immediately. It was like a remedy for me because I was bored to death studying for final in such shiny days. I hope you will feel the same. It is built by famous builder Nannan Z who is being not so active lately. He is maybe celebrating his own return and pretty hot summer days with this cheerful moc. It reminds me GunmanLurikeen's Sir Gunman Lurikeen's Fountain and Siercon and Coral's Black Baery Inn. You can see them also here. 

He also uploaded a description video on youtube.

Smaug, the dragon from the movie The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2014) is built with LEGO pieces by Flickr member and LEGO Fan Shawn Snyder who is also the builder of the amazing Star Trel bust "Resistance is futile".I like that the wings are build with plates instead of using cloth pieces and the sculpturing of the head is really amazing as well.

Rita Vrataski from the Movie Edge of Tomorrow

https://www.flickr.com/photos/tuminio/14351769888/in/contacts/
Flickr member and customization expert Minh Pham a.k.a Tuminio. has created this amazing custom minifigure of Rita Vrataski from the movie Edge of Tomorrow (2014). The character is a fearless soldier in the future with a huge blade and battle suit played by British actress Emily Blunt. The minifigure is created very accurately using LEGO brand pieces combined with other custom elements. Paint job is also amazing. I like that the head of the figure remained untouched since it looks cleaner by this way.

New LEGO Ideas (Cuusoo) set 21110 Research Institute is revealed


Newest LEGO Ideas set  21110 Research Institute is revealed. The official set is not much different than the original model. The original model was designed by LEGO Ideas member Alatariel. The original name of the model was "Female minifigure set" and contains three different mini sets each containing one minifigure but it is changed by LEGO and three mini sets merged to a single set. In my opinion the dinosaur skeletton and the lab equipment seem fun o build but there is nothing very special with the minifigures.

Original fan made version of the set by Alatariel.

Hummer by Sariel


LEGO Technic master builder Sariel did it again. Check out this amazingly realistic model of Hummer H1 Wagon that weights 3.95 kg. The outside modelling of the Hummer is amazing as always plus it has a fully detailed interior. Additionally this car is also functional! This remote-controlled Hummer has diferent types of gears, automated turn signals and lights. Impressively, the hood, doors and trunk could be also opened. Check out the video of the creation here. Absolutely best Hummer model built with LEGO pieces.
