This is the deadly Lego android named Silver Nail, created by Moko. The first striking thing about his figure is the use of a lot of silver plated Lego pieces. A very rare color in the Lego world. You can find a lot of surprising parts in this android. There are a few golden rings used in the fingers, and elbow. Count Dooku’s light saber hilt helps make up the fingers, as do some silver knifes. The silver is contrasted with a black and white design, and vibrant purple hair. An inside out Lego tire is used to make a skirt, which does not prevent the figure from taking any pose that it wants. There is a lot of articulation built into this mech. Double jointed knees, ankles, toes, hips, shoulders, elbows, hands, fingers, head, and even each strand of hair.
It looks like the Lego Friends have a new ride, or maybe Homer Simpson upgraded the sedan. Either way this Lego Lowrider is awesome. Alex Jones (Orion Pax) created this MOC titled the “Flamingo Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme.” It is always interesting to see what people can do with Lego pieces, especially those that have a limited color palette. It features a tri-tone paint job (hot pink, pink and purple), with chrome accents and whitewall tires. The car has hot pink wood paneling and the windshield is even transparent pink. This Oldsmobile has style.
Google and Lego have teamed up to create the “Build with Chrome” experiment. You can create and share Lego projects through a WebGL based website that is designed to be used with Google Chrome. Although I had no trouble at all using Apple Safari. There are three modes to explore on the website, a map of the world that lets you look at other peoples creations, the actual building website, and the “Build Academy.” Minifigures from the Lego Movie make cameo appearances in the Build Academy, which is a series of tutorials.
Build with Chrome started out in Australia as an experiment. Since then the site has been expanded out and now covers the whole world. You can pick a piece of unbuilt land, or use a randomly assigned plot to design your creation. Each plot is a 32×32 baseplate, with coloring based on a low resolution Google Map of the surrounding area. There are 21 basic bricks that come in 10 colors. Which means the LDD has nothing to worry about for now…
