Imagine that Howl’s Moving Castle had a little steampunk baby… It would be great to create a stop motion video with this Steam Temple walking around. The black, brown, and gold color scheme is very harmonious.
Jack Sparrow had to face an epic battle at the end of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. The whole film ended with an incredible battle where Jack called upon the Kraken to fight the Pearl. Someone saw this iconic scene and thought; that needs to be in Lego.
At first glance this is a simple scene of a family room. After looking at this MOC for a while some subtle details stand out. For instance the videogame joystick on the table, the stereo, the aquarium, the sculpture, and the television are all examples of the sheer amount of detail and advanced building skills put into this room.
Just look at that television.
“The old mill on the edge of Grim Hollow now stands as a refuge for Lord Owain as he awaits the return of his sister who brings a tired Taryn and Sarlina with her. The once fast flowing river that powered the wheel has now become all but a small slow stream.”
Darkmire Mill is probably the best Lego mill I have ever seen, and I have seen many. Every detail in the scene has been perfectly placed. The waterfall, the creek bed, the ramshackle mill, the gnarly trees, even the extravagantly detailed base.
One of the most ambitious Lego models this year, Contact 1 is almost dream like. This micro scale scene is full of so many details that it is overwhelming to view. Calling this model micro scale is a little misleading, it is 5 feet tall and 6 feet wide. This thing is tall enough to ride a roller coaster.
The official concept behind Contact 1 reads like no other MOC ever built.
“This is a story where human consciousness rediscovers the art of intuition and the subtle – but powerful – forces of the universe. Here, groups of modern humans use ancient rituals which – in combination with expanded consciousness – initiates communication with the great space faring cultures of the universe. Vectoring extraterrestrial beings to their position on earth, these humans invite the visitors to help heal the planet through the ETs’ transformative powers and bring the greater Earth community closer to the spiritual nature of the universe.”
Contact 1, by Mike Doyle, has been so successful that a Kickstarter campaign has been formed and completely funded. With rewards offering prints, posters and even Lego models, this whole project is one of the most unique Kickstarter campaigns yet.
If I lived in Contact 1, my house would be the little red roofed one thats located at about 2 feet from the bottom.
R2D2’s secret passion is to ride in the Tour De Force. Where once a year the universes most elite bicyclists compete in a 23 day tour of Endor. Watch out R2D2, I hear that Anakin doesn’t play fair.
With new Lego sets and a new film less than a month away renewed interest in Iron Man is hitting a fevered peak.
Iron Man’s Hall of Armor is one of those quintessential comic book settings. Right up with the Bat Cave, the Baxter Building, and the X–Mansion, the Hall of Armor is a perfect base for our favorite Iron Man.
Jared Chan of Flickr has created a definitive version of the Hall of Armor. Some of the details, such as, the glowing blue lighting, and the Mark 1 suit help what could be a boring build stand out. The success of this MOC has sparked the imagination of many a Lego fan and has even landed it a Cuusoo page.

The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (TMNT) sets have some of the most expressive Minifigs, too bad most of the set designs are based off the newer shows. Now if Lego could release some sets with the animated 80’s style, they would sell boat loads.
