This Lego Nautilus is created by Mitsuru Nikaido. Specifically it is a Mecha Nautilus Mk2-10. This robotic sea creature features a grey and white color palette, there is no color here. The design is amazingly complicated. A system of clips and hinges create the spiral shape, and a whole lot of white plates protect it from harm. There are some surprising Lego pieces to be found. A part of an airplane jet engine is used for the top of the Nautilus, a few Bionicle pieces are around the top, and a Hero Factory logo/icon piece is used for the eye. The tentacle/feeler propulsion system looks especially good. The end result is a very organic Mech, kinda like something you might find in Horizon Zero Dawn.
The Black Pearl is the infamous pirate ship captained by Jack Sparrow, of the Pirates of the Caribbean films. All the way back to its humble beginnings the ship was known as the Wicked Wench. Captain Jack would eventually make a deal with Davy Jones transforming the galleon into the Black Pearl. Since then it has been through a lot of adventures. Even ending up inside a bottle for a while. This monochrome Lego Black Pearl is the creation of Henjin_Quilones. It was built as an entry into the Style If Up contest. Where the challenge was to build something with only one color. This Lego MOC is a great build. It is smaller than the official Lego pirate ships, but somehow this one feels just as detailed. The super tiny cannons and rolled up black sails are especially great.
It is Pablo Picasso’s 133rd birthday today, and in celebration Veronica Watson recreated Picasso’s Guernica in Lego. Using just 800 black, gray, and white Lego bricks.

The bull, the horse, the eyeball like light, and the various tortured humans are all recreated in Lego. Veronica Watson is a Lego Master Model Builder from Legoland Discovery Center Westchester.
