There is something so perfect about this tiny character by P. B.!
Eero Okkonen struck a perfect balance of system and constraction with this mechanical dragon.
I just discovered @jeff_works, and these micro city vignettes are amazing!
A lovely interpretation of one of my favorite games by Melan-E.
Omar Gonzalez is constantly refining and improving his models, but this one is a real head turner.
Such a nice sense of scale and mass in this Megacity One model by Shannon Sproule.
Gamabomb is really showing of their industrial style with this unusual mech.
Another mech variation by Hoon Kim. The anti-studs on that head are really doing it for me, not to mention that over-sized pauldron.
I’m a little late to the party with this sweet little landscape by ForlornEmpire, but I couldn’t pass up sharing it.
Dennis Bosman created this beast of a 1:13 scale wrecker, full of realistic details.
This lovely little render is from my friend Ryan Olsen, based of a Red Spacecat design.
Another lovely microscale build from TOKYO TAG TEAM. The fire and smoke effects are particularly lovely!
Getting the ball rolling for a new year!
I love intricate microscale builds like this one by TenorPenny.
To any regular reader of this blog, it is obvious that I am a big fan of microscale LEGO. I love distilling ideas down and trying to capture their essence with careful parts usage. This beautiful book is full of inspiration and technique for the micro builder and I’m happy to finally get to tell you about it. Continue reading Tiny LEGO Wonders

Check out this slick motorbike from F@bz!
I’m digging this micro version of LEGOLIZE IT MAN‘s M.u.uala by Ryan Olsen.
Building at small scales can be tricky. LEGO is a versatile building system, but elements can only get so small before they are too small to handle and interconnect. The smallest common element is a 1×1 plate which would be 7.5 feet across and 3 feet high in Micropolis (making it about 1:285). That is a grainy pixel!
