Classic Space Guys joined the Resistance


LEGO Space fan and flickr.com member Walter Whiteside Jr. a.k.a. whitesidewjw has built the classic space themed version of the official Star Wars set Resistance Troop Transporter 75140. With the iconic blue-grey color-scheme with trans-yellow glass pieces this MOC really reminds us the old good days. I would be more happy if a Classic Space Astronaut from 80's would be used as the pilot but as a Star Wars fan and Classic Space lover I can say that this is a great mash-up of the themes overall.

This spaceship also have a  nice interior filled with seats, accessories and printer pieces.

District 9 Dropship by Josiah N.


LEGO Fan and flickr.com member Josiah N. shared this impressive sci-fi dropship from the movie District 9. According to the description this MOC is based on a Greg Broadmore's concept art for the movie. With the shaping of the hull and the color-scheme, the MOC resembles the concept art very much. There are many small details that adds a lot to the quality of the MOC. Check out the photo album for more photos of this ship.

The concept art made by Greg Broadmore

The Street from the Bob's Burgers by Chris Goddard

LEGO fan and flickr.com user Chris Goddard built this outstanding and cartoon-accurate street diorama from the TV Series Bob's Burgers.

Movie Accurate F-11D Stormtrooper Blaster Rifle


Star Wars fan and flickr.com member willgalb shared this life-size blaster replica from the latest Star Wars movie Episode 7: The Force Awakens. With the white-black color-scheme this F-11D Stormtrooper Blaster Rifle (actually these are too small to be called as rifles in my opinion) is different than the previous versions of this iconic weapon. The builder managed to make it very movie accurate using nice building techniques.

As you can see from the photo above the brickbuilt version of the blaster resembles the original version very much. Even the black screws were not forgotten in the MOC.

LEGO Technic fan and Youtube Channel Owner JK Brickworks (his flickr page) has put signature to a perfect design that everyone wants in his desk, an orrery!

https://www.flickr.com/photos/129722661@N05/25200209961/in/dateposted/
Eurobricks.com and flickr.com member Tirrell Brown a.k.a. Blufiji shared this amazing fantasy themed fort built for the Guilds of Historica of Eurobricks the in his photo-stream. The vegetation and the building techniques used for the fortress are really impressive. The color combination and part selection are also done greatly. I used to see nicely shaped round towers in castle MOC's but I especially like how the wooden (reddish brown) sections of the towers are made. All things together this creation becomes a wonderful swamp MOC!

An Unusual Mech: Space Hot Dog Chef

https://www.flickr.com/photos/130979462@N03/24632130053/

Check out this "Space Hot Dog Chelf" mech built by flickr.com member LEGO 7. LEGO Sci-fi enthusiasts are used to see mechs that are built for battle and sometimes for heavy-duty but this mech offers an unusual service for the controller. It is used to prepare giant hot-dogs using his small arms and squezing ketchup and mayonnaise with his larger arms. The Idea itself is very creative but the design is also done very nicely as well. Check out the photo-album to see the different steps of preparing of a space hot-dog.

BB-8 says "Good Job!"


LEGO fan and flickr.com member willgalb shared this updated version of his BB-8 droid from the Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awekens. This model features the iconic "Good Job!" mode as well. I especially like the mosaic version of the pattern on the large sphere. 

Lord of the Rings Pinball by Jonas

https://www.flickr.com/photos/legols/25168623991/in/contacts/

This Lord of the Rings themed pinball game is one of the best MOC's I have ever seen and it is really amazing. This crazy MOC was built and shared by flickr.com member Jonas a.k.a. Legopard for the Iron Builder challenge against Tim Schwalfenberg. We already shared many MOC's from the competition between the two incredible builders but each time they keep building better and better MOC's. This pinball has many iconic micro-builds from Lord of the Rings movies including Minas Tirith and Barad-dûr. What I like the most is that the flipper bats are built in form of the Black Gate. There is also a video where you can see the creator plays with the pinball.

The child who built this MOC, went blind

https://www.flickr.com/photos/gid617/24987944172/

Header is just a joke but I think author of this MOC, struggle with a lot of pain when building beacuse of brillant building technique of roads. Kai NRG/Geneva who is creator of Streets of a Roman Town used L.Bley 1x1 Rounded tiles to create illusion on road. I love to say "I mostly liked something" but for MOC it is not necessary. We learned a new painful technique for our precious PAB gatherings.

Backyard of Emmet's Street

https://www.flickr.com/photos/134333089@N04/22048027911/

LEGO Movie fan and eurobricks.com member Xon67 (aka Xon_67 at flickr) has been creating his Emmets Street from The LEGO Movie. Normally, LDD designs rarely shared from our blog but these are different. He created a visual analyse guide for creating Emmet's Street.

The detailing and part selection is done very well on this MOC. The orange-grey color-scheme cools also very cool and authentic. Round windcreen piece and orange circle printed tile piece from the 75050 B-wing set fits the creation very well.

Dreadful Castle of the CCC by Toltomeja

Dracula Castle - CCC XIII

LEGO fan and flickr.com member Toltomeja shared a perfect castle named Dracula Castle. He originally created another Dracula Castle for CCC. After contest, he wanted to redesign it and that is the result. I mostly liked the pathway of the old looking mysterious castle. Therefore fancy arches over the windows are perfectly designed.

Elvis from the Mad Max: Fury Road by Tommy Styrvoky


LEGO fan and motorized model master-builder Tommy Styrvoky shared this amazing motorized model car from the famous post apocalyptic movie Mad Max: Fury Road (2015). This car is named Elvis and it is a modified 32' Ford with 2 V6 GMC engines. The builder previously created also the Peacemaker from the movie as well. The design of this models are very realistic and it is incredible that these model are also motorized as well. Model is powered by 2 L motors and utilizes a Servo motor for steering. It is powered by a Lego rechargeable battery.

The creator also shared this photo of the original model in his photo-stream where you can see how realistic the LEGO version is. Maybe the color could be a darker tone of orange to be more movie-accurate other than that this MOC is perfect.

A Warm Breeze from the Orient

LEGO fan and flickr.com member brickbink shared these two great oriental building MOC's in his photo-stream. Both of the MOC's a are designed greatly using different texturing techniques. White motives on the mosque walls are done nicely with small arch pieces which is unique for this MOC. The color selection is very well done in both MOC's 

I especially like the door section on this one. Using different sizes of arch pieces together to create a oriental looking gate is a great idea The terrain is also textured and detailed with small plants. I like this tree more than the tree in the mosque because the other one has a circular hole on the trunk.

'67 Chuck Miller’s Ford C-cab, the "Fire Truck" by Andrea Lattanzio

https://www.flickr.com/photos/norton74/25106347551/

This incredibly realistic and outstanding model is built by model masterbuilder and flickr.com member Andrea Lattanzio a.k.a. Norton74 who is known for his amazing creations like the Dream Garage (also featured in Brick Journal) and many more. The vehicle is full of small details and features but my favourite sction is the engine with small custom red hose detail and realistic shaping. Custom chromed bricks gives this great MOC additional coolness too.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/norton74/24493395844/
The builder also shared this photo of the original car to let us know how realistic and good looking the LEGO version is. Maybe the only visible major difference are the tires and wheels.

I always like WWII military vehicles and especially fighters. Flickr.com member and brickmania team member Daniel Siskind shared this awesome Japanese fighter A6M Zero in his flickr acount. The cockpit section is brilliantly shaped with droid arm pieces. The diorama scene with all those small details like the workbench and containers makes this creation look even cooler. If you might want to own this model it is also available for pre-order on brickmania.com.

The Lost Dragonhunter in Flying Island

The Lost Dragonhunter

LEGO Fan and flickr.com member Wookieewarrior has recently created a spectecular MOC that named The Lost Dragonhunter. He modeled perfectly rounded rock shaped flying island. He inspired from an old TV Show "Dragonhunters-Die Drachenjäger" from Germany.

His remarkable usage of bley pieces created a well designed rocky island. He perfectly used greeneries to designed a natural-looking earth. I mostly liked building technique of fence, try to use in my future designs.

The name of this MOC is "Monstrum Maris" and this MOC is built for the Iron Builder challenge against Tim Schwalfenberg. Both sides have built amazing MOC's like Forbidden Fortress, District 9 ExosuitWhat's Cooking? and many more throughout the challenge and they keep building. them. The wave effect done with transparent plate pieces is incredible on this MOC. The monster (Kraken?) is built nicely but the design of the ship makes this diorama perfect.The creator also shared photos of the ship separately as well.

This beautiful and highly detailed ship is built by the Brick Time team member and LEGO fan Sylon-tw. According the description "The new horizon" is a heavy armed scouting ship. It is designed for long distance flights. It is also heavy armored and armed.

The shaping of this MOC is really outstanding. I also like the red-white color-scheme as well since red is my favorite brick color. I also like the addition of small details like transparent blue round brick pieces and reversed turntable top elements on the engines. The stands looks cool too.

This amazing spaceship Knucklehead Raider is built and shared by flickr.ocm member ska2d2. This fighter has rotating engines and a cool looking dark gray-yellow color-scheme.

Hanging out with the Mill

Baker's Mill

LEGO Fan and flickr.com member Ben van Middendorp created a MOC in last summer that we never discovered before. He created a Baker's Mill which is full of different techniques amazes me when I saw it firstly. He combines rounded wall and rounded stairs techniques in one MOC and also created a perfect stork on the roof. I mostly liked floor technique which seems like a balcony, and several times I used on my designs.

This realistic military helicopter model, MH-60R Seahawk is built and shared by LEGO fan and flickr.com member Lennart C a.k.a Everblack. This is a good example that the scale is not very important as long as the building techniques and part selection is great. The shaping and the greebles are so good on this one.

Space Rock Band "The Highway Stars" by Julius von Brunk

https://www.flickr.com/photos/baronvonbrunk/24920342296/

LEGO Space Fan and flickr.com member Julius von Brunk shared this MOC containing a space-themed car "The Astrosurfer" together with space rock band "The Highway Stars". This vehicle is detailed and articulated with wheels, rubber tires, hinged doors, reclining seats, and with access to the car’s trunk. On the hood of the car is a metallic ornament, and underneath is a detailed engine but what I like the most is the classic-car-like shaping and the color. I like the rock band even more. As a classic space fan I think the idea of a band out of classic space figures is great. The band member minifigures are playing different guitars that came out from the collectible minifigure series. The creator also shared this creation as an Ideas project. Check it out to support this MOC and help becoming a set.

 The car has a openable hood and a detailed engine inside it.

Dark Side of the Japanese Fortresses

Forbidden Fortress

LEGO Fan, flickr.com member and our one of the favorite MOCer Tim Schwalfenberg has recently build his 28th MOC to IronBuilder contest against Jonas. He created a perfect Japanese type house which was named Forbidden Fortress. He used metallic silver pin parts to create a perfect angled Japanese roof. I mostly liked the scale of the model and use of headlight bricks to project windows. Tim and Jonas has created spectacular techniques during IronBuilder contest.
