I’ve been failing at doing this daily, but here goes…

MOCs:

Coyote Hot Rod

_zenn has really put some love into this little hot rod.

Freighters in the Coalition

These amazingly detailed microscale ships might not be buildable, but can certainly appreciate Awesome O’saurus‘ work.

This sleek ship by SweStar is what ships are all about.

This one is a couple years old, but I’m having a bit of a strandbeest obsession right now.

CARDCAPTOR SAKURA

This little guy is full of clever part usage. Based on a Cardcaptor Sakura character by Moko.

I really enjoy it when builders play with scale, like in this enlarged slope by nobu_tary.

Somewhere in Sweden during the 70s

This super realistic scene is a great example of low key style by LegoJalex.
