Draganpopart Lego Art Collage Blue Spaceman

Draganpopart has revealed a couple awesome Lego collage art pieces. The classic Lego spaceman is 20″ x 16″ on canvas. Using various mediums; such as watercolors, acrylics, and vintage book prints. There is also the iconic space console, which is painted on a 14″ canvas using the same methods and materials as the spaceman.

It’s The Ship That Made The Rainbow Road In less Than Twelve Parsecs. – A Falcon Recolor

Peter De Smet Lego Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon Recolor 01

If you didn’t pick up the Lego Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon 10179 you are probably not going to be able to attain it now. New in box will run you a couple thousand dollars. The original set is the second largest released by Lego at 5,922 pieces and a $500 price tag. The good news is that if you do not care about color, almost every piece is available in other releases. That is exactly what Peter De Smet did with his UCS Millennium Falcon Recolor. The end product looks like something that flew through the Rainbow Road.

Do Not Feed The Klingon Bird Of Prey

Kevin J Walter Lego Star Trek Klingon Bird Of Prey Golden Gate

“The Klingon Bird of Prey is, since I can think of, my favorite Spaceship-design and as well the one, which inspired me the most in my childhood and all my own spaceship Models.

After completing the BoP as virtual Model (2008-2010), it was always a dream of me to build it some time with real bricks. I’m really lucky the dream became true six years later!” — Kevin J. Walter

This is a Lego Klingon Bird of Prey, created by Kevin J. Walter. It is a beautiful MOC based on Star Trek. This model was first built digitally, which allowed every piece and brick to be carefully thought out. This served as a “rough draft” for the physical model. There are so many details to take in. The wings are absolutely amazing. The patterns created between the brown structure and the green paneling is something unique. The color combinations lend this model an almost copper color.

What really makes this model stand out is the photography. The masked model with black backgrounds looks good and helps sell this as a starfighter. The downside is that we do not get to see the support structure that holds this ship up. Then there are the photos where the Bird of War has been placed in other photographs using an image editor. The Golden Gate bridge (above) and the Warp scene (below) creates an illusion where the Lego bricks fade away and the ship becomes real.

The Lunar Exploration Geological Outpost – LEGO

Billy Burg Lego Space Lunar Exploration Geological Outpost 01
There is something timeless about the 1980’s Space themed Lego sets. Also known as Classic Space. The grey, blue, black, and yellow colors combine perfectly. This was a time when Lego space focused on exploration for its general theme. No wars here. The worst that could happen is the Minifigures would get into fights with megaphones.

Lego builder Billy Burg has taken the Classic Space theme and brought it up to current Lego standards. These MOCs are simple looking, but are carefully put together with popular SNOT techniques. No stray studs showing here. The Lunar Exploration Geological Outpost (LEGO) features the LL-1923 Spaceship, a Spacetruck, Speeder, Communications Satellite Dish, 2 Robot Drones, and a Robot Dog. All this equipment is operated by a team of 6 explorers. They are ready to find space gold on the moon.

“It’s essentially a recreation of the old classic space theme given a new twist, using modern building techniques, but keeping the ethos of the original theme: which to me is to fire up the imagination, have fun, play well, pretend you’re an astronaut and explore space! Very topical at the moment I feel.” — Billy Burg

The Rebel Fleet. A Lego Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back MOC.

mortesv lego star wars rebel fleet moc 01

“But the glow of the stars is just a faint glimmer compared to the magnificence of the kickass Rebel Fleet just outside!”

The Rebels in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back are a ragtag group of resistance fighters. They have desperately put together a fleet of starships and starfighters as they prepare to assault the Empire. This fleet is one of the most iconic scenes from Empire Strikes Back, and a lot of kids who saw it in theaters wanted to create their own in Lego. For many years this proved challenging; but now with a lot of time, artistic inspiration, and a lot of money, you too can create your own Lego Star Wars Fleet.

Mortesv, the self-styled Admiral of the Rebel Fleet, has spent a good chunk of time recreating the fleet in Lego. The whole project is mostly in scale. The stars of the show are huge Lego MOCs of the Redemption and Tantive IV. If you look carefully you can even find a few unwelcome guests among the fleet.

mortesv lego star wars rebel fleet moc 02

There are 52 ships represented here. 15 X-Wings, 16 Y-Wings, 6 B-Wings, 5 A-Wings, 3 GR-75 Medium Transports, 2 TIE Fighters, 1 Corellian Corvette (Tantive IV), 1 Nebulon-B Escort Frigate (The Redemption), 1 Firespray-class interceptor (Slave 1),  1 Lambda-class T-4a Shuttle (Tyderium), and 1 Millennium Falcon.

A whole system of clear support structures and connectors keep the Rebel Fleet afloat. This helps keep the focus on the ships themselves. With all the detail and greebling the last thing you want to do is hide anything behind ugly structures.

Red Dwarf Lego Ideas. Join Dave Lister, Arnold Rimmer, CAT and Kryten

Legobob32 Red Dwarf Lego Ideas

The British television show Red Dwarf has been floating through space for over 20 years. It is about time the crew get their own Lego Ideas set based on the cult comedy show. The Lego Red Dwarf set features an amalgamated interior of the ship, and references to a lot of classic episodes. The main design is based on Season X. It includes the famous bunk beds, posters, a sliding airlock, Holly Hop Drive, and Skutters. Also included in the Lego Ideas project is the Blue Midget, which is anything but small. There are six custom Minifigures, created by Minifigs.me, which includes: Dave Lister, Kryten, Arnold Rimmer, Daune Dibbley, CAT, and Ace Rimmer.

A neat thing you don’t always see is that this Lego Ideas project is listening to the comments and updating the design. The Blue Midget has had its front redesigned, a Talkie Toaster added, and improved Holly screens.

A Lego MOC Star Fighter, The Kanalia

Eric Teo Lego MOC Star Fighter, The Kanalia

“The Kanalia” is a sleek and open star fighter. Piloted by Himura Satoichi. This Lego MOC has one of the most interesting cockpits. This openness has been achieved by combining three separate canopies. The ship is outfitted with multiple guns, and looks like it could hold its own in a fight. With a striking yellow and grey color scheme. The Kanalia stands out. It is also great to see landing gear.

This Lego MOC star fighter, titled “The Kanalia” is the creation of Eric Teo. You can find more about it over on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/123865130@N05/27769675244/

It is outfitted with multiple guns, and even comes equipped with an anime style sword.

This Lego mech was inspired by the gas masks, and would operated in toxic environments. The STILTwalker is the creation of tanks, and you can find more information over on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/54660083@N07/sets/72157669076924714

Kill him. Kill him now. – A Lego Star Wars MOC

Cecilia Fritzvold Lego Star Wars Kill Him

“Kill him. Kill him now.” A famous line from one of the most memorable scenes from Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. Cecilia Fritzvold has faithfully recreated this moment in Lego. There are a lot of great details here, but the most impressive is the background. Full of tiny spaceships battling it out. The forced perspective works extremely well.

“I initially tried to include a larger area of the room in my build, as I wanted to include at least the bottom part of the stairs they walk down, and leave some more space for Obi-Wan, but I had to cut it down a bit as I couldn’t fit it all on 32×32. It was also very important to me from the start to be able to show the battle going on outside with the use of some micro spaceships, so I had to leave some room for those behind the windows.”
