I’ve been interested in LEGO robotics for years, but I’ve never tried my hand at it. Mindstorms seems like a bit much, but the BOOST system has so much potential for adding programmed (and controllable) motion to LEGO models. But how do I learn to harness the potential?Continue reading The LEGO BOOST Activity Book
About a year ago, I fell in love with Andrew MacLean’s Head Lopper. It’s the tale of a conan-like figure, Norgal, who travels the land dispatching evil. Often separating them from their heads.Continue reading Head Lopper Brickheads
Early in November, I stumbled across an Instagram hashtag that I’d never seen before: mapvember. The idea was simple, to post a roleplaying game map every day for a month. I’ve been doing some experiments with designing D&D maps with LEGO, so it seemed a perfect excuse to see what I could do with the concept. Continue reading Mapvember
I love a good micro build, and it really doesn’t come much better than this little ship by delayice. You’ll have to zoom in to appreciate the clever parts usage and techniques in there!
The angles on this model by Daniel Stoeffler are so good! This piece of microscale architecture has such a satisfying balance of complexity and texture.
Check out this detail-packed post-apocalyptic, rolling homestead by Rat Dude! I dig the detail on the containers and the hodge-podge mix of colors.
The GRID WARS contest has generated some lovely models, like this Naboo starfighter remix from x‿x. Then again, I’m a total sucker for translucent neon orange!
It might have been a rushed build, but BobDeQuatre really nailed the color-blocking on this little fighter. I also really like the balance of curved and angular elements.
What could be more retro-future than a monorail? Tammo S. created some amazing brick-built striping and lettering on this model.
