TV from our lovely childhood

LEGO Fan and member Primoz Mlakar shared a perspective scene from Back to the Future Part II in a old iconic Sony TV. Late 80's TV is 58 studs wide, 58 studs long, and 43 bricks high. We always see different objects from real life in minifigure scale but it's whole a different experience. The canal display is add realism to the MOC.

Brick-built Pokémon Charizard by lisqr

This great brick-built sculpture of Charizard, a creature from the Pokémon franchise was recently built and shared by user and LEGO fan lisqr in his photo-stream. For those who don't know much about the Pokémon's like me this dragon-like creature, according to the Pokemon franchise a is the final for of Charmander that is one of the main character Ash's Pokemon's in the main anime series. The shape of the body and the wings are built very nicely and the color selection matches the original version pretty much, although the wings has more of a turquoise color. Maybe a dark azur or medium azur colors would be a better choice. 

Realistic Model of Peterbilt 379 together with Polar Tanktrailer

LEGO fan and user Bricksonwheels who is known for his amazingly realistic models shared his latest creation, Peterbilt 379 + Polar Tanktrailer in his photo-stream. This mode is in 1:13 scale and obviously very accurate to the real vehicle. According to the description the MOC consist of 9000 pieces and has LED lights fit in it. I absolutely loved the chrome details on this one, especially when I see the photo where the hood is opened and the engine is revealed.

Working hard to create a trebuchet

Katoren Siege Workshop is capable of building all types of siege weapons. I'm addicted to jsnyder002's Medieval and Mediterranean styled MOCs. Everytime I stopped nearly ten minutes to go into details and minifigures.

Tennis Court MOC by Martin Harris

LEGO fan and user Martin Harris who is known for his great huge dioramas like his Star Wars Trench Run and Harry Potter's Queddich recently shared this beautiful tennis court MOC in his photo-stream. We don't see often sport related MOC's on the internet and this one is a really good example. I like the use of bright pink and light tan as the color of the floor. It looks very peaceful. The lines on the field are done using tile/plate pieces vertically which is also interesting.

Norton's passion for motors

LEGO Fan and Pro member Norton74 created an impressive MOC with so many interior and exterior details named MOONEYES headquarters - Santa Fe Springs CA. Norton added background story of the Mooneyes company and his passion abot cars in his post. Don't miss the broken window detail.

Cobblestones and roof pieces are perfectly located and sand-green fence piece neatly used in Siege Workshop in Barqa.

Cecilie's Different Final Supper

We, the Tiles or Studs bloggers love to watch contests and challanges to explore new techniques to build something new. But our favorite contest is absolutely Iron Builder! Cecilie Fritzvold and Chris Maddison battled last month with using new Tile, modified 2x3 Pentagonal piece. Cecilie's final build, Itadakimasu! has a conveyor belt which includes these pentagonal seed parts. This MOC takes place in a sushi restaurant with full of customers. Thanks Cecilie and Chris for their greatest effort in this contest.

Indiana Jones temple escape by Zed

LEGO Fan and member Zed shared a MOC about an adventure of well-known archaeologist Indiana Jones. He is escaping from a temple which has a brillant designed gate. There are perfect textured walls beside the escape but I mostly liked a detail upon the gate. Zed used 1x2 rail plates to create this detail in Indiana Jones Temple Escape MOC.

Stargate Daedalus by Peter Ray

LEGO fan and user Peter Ray a.k.a. peter-ray recently shared this awesome micro-scale model of Daedalus from the Sci-fi franchise Stargate. The shaping and color selection are very accurate to the original version. My favourite sections are the fighter hangars on sides of the ship. Although there is only one photo shared by the builder yet, this creation looks really impressive. We are looking for more photos and details. 

Jurassic Park Roller Coaster Dinosaur Amusement Park by James Burrows

James Burrows who is an AFOL created a huge Jurassic Park themed LEGO Amusement Park with giant roller coaster. He used custom pieces for roller coaster rails but his work is very impressive. The park full of details and the MOC has more than 125,000 LEGO pieces.

A Lover's Tale: Part 3 - Fleeing the City by Ayrlego

LEGO Fan and member Ayrlego who is built a MOC that is three person collaborative story for Brethern of the Brick Seas in Eurobricks. A Lover's Tale: Part 3 - Fleeing the City shows us too many details in such a small area. The lantern, wine plant and color selection were impressed me a lot.

Mech Inside Bigger Mech!

LEGO fan and user Moko a.k.a. LEGO DOU Moko who is also one of our guest of honors, recently shared these unusual and beautiful mechas in his photo-stream. Honestly I haven't seen a mecha that can fit into another mecha before. The bigger mecha is called Baikanfu and according to my short research these are robots and characters from a Robo Machine. MOC's are impressive shaped and completely studless. Don't forget to check out our special interview with the builder if you haven't read it yet.
