MOCs:

ZapRay 9000

Tyler has a whole series of cool blasters, but this one in particular is my favorite!

Masters of the Universe - Brickbuilt figures

I love brick built figures, and this series by LegoJalex really tickles the nostalgia.

Now here is an excellent usage of monochrome! Built by Legolize It Man.

Brick Robot Works - cover

I’ve reviewed a number of Japanese books of mecha and this one by Goniataito would be a fine addition.

''FERRETS''

A. Yates turns out another handsome squad of tiny mecha.

40120 Valentine’s Day Dinner

40120_cover

This year’s seasonal sets are a nice departure from the cute animals sets that Lego produced last year. Each set is an 8×8 vignette with a pair of minifigures in an appropriate setting. Kicking off the line is this interestingly mature Valentine’s Day Dinner.

MOCs:

RG-101

Dasnewton is back with a great heavy starfighter.

The Maiden of Tarth

Pascal has already taken advantage of the breakdown that dasnewton provided to build his own copy.

And then there were two

These little guys were built as part of the trophies for Cory Janssen‘s MechApocalypse ’47 event at BricksCascade 2015.

DSC02531w

There have already been a lot interpretations of Interstellar, but this one by jp_velociraptor is amazing.

Blue Train

Galaktek seems to have gotten carried away with his table scraps and wound up with this evocative train vignette.

MTR Mountain Top Removal

It took me a moment for the scale of this scene to settle in. Mike Doyle‘s mountaintop removal MOC is as gorgeous and a bit terrifying.

"Desert Demon" AI Assault platform

I’ve been working a tank myself lately, and this handsome little devil by Rancorbait is kick-ass!

MOCs:

M10 Fury

I’m loving the use of gears on this little mecha by Marco Marozzi!

Geflugelter Panzer

ska2d2 has built another great diespunk flyer.

F-06 SkyRazor

The brick-built striping and all those engine details! A great fighter by Sylon-tw.

UPベース20150120

zi zy is the master of these little mecha, constantly innovative and surprising. I love the tracked heels!

Digueta IWM Type D68 Mark II_D173

What a great crab-like mecha here by Benjamin Cheh Creations.

Schwarze Feuer

Lu Sim really knocked it out of the park with this menacing black mecha. The translucent flourescent orange highlights really work!

SW - MESSER02BF

I mean, just look at those awesome swords!

41097 Heartlake Hot Air Balloon

41097_box

I’ve been a fan of the Friends line for a while now. Every season, Lego releases new and amazing sets in these pink boxes. The elements alone are worth the purchase (and oh so perfect for drafting). Needless to say, when I saw pictures of this set surface on the internet, I began to salivate.
