A Lego Replica Iron Man Arc Reactor

MrAttacki's Lego Iron Man Arc Reactor

The Iron Man Arc Reactor is one amazing prop. The design is instantly recognizable and just plain cool. In the recent films, Iron Man uses the Arc Reactor to keep shrapnel from entering his heart. It is essentially a fusion power supply that has the ability to power the Iron Man suit. It looks hi-tech yet can easily be replicated using everyday objects. This Lego Arc Reactor is simply amazing.

MrAttacki's Lego Iron Man Arc Reactor Lights

Mr.Attacki has proposed a Lego CUUSOO project based on the Arc Reactor. The whole thing can be built with about 350 Lego pieces, and can be wired with LED lights. The details of this build are beautiful. The design is extremely accurate, and although appearing like a simple build, a lot of advanced techniques are used.

The good news is that Mr.Attacki has included a set of photo based instructions. If only every Lego CUUSOO project would go this far. At least if it never gets considered, fans can attempt to put it together themselves.

Lego Parisian Restaurant Modular Building (10243) Reviewed by Huw

Huw's Parisian Restaurant 10243 Review

Lego has been steadily releasing new Modular Buildings for the past few years. The recent, Palace Cinema (10232), and Town Hall (10224) have proven extremely popular. The newest set is the Parisian Restaurant (10243) which should be hitting shelves in the near future. Huw, from Brickset, has recently posted an early photo review of this highly anticipated set. The Parisian Restaurant comes with the now standard 3 step instructions. Which, should take anywhere from 5-9 hours to complete.

Huw's Parisian Restaurant 10243 Review Scooter

There are a whole lot of new and rare pieces included this time around. The most recognizable is the new Lego Scooter. This little red Vespa influenced scooter is extremely cute, and fits in perfectly with the Parisian Restaurant. Also included are a whole lot bricks in the new Olive Green Lego color. Since the whole building is based on this rare color, the Parisian Restaurant is probably the best source for these parts.

Huw's Parisian Restaurant 10243 Review Minifigures

Featuring five Minifigures, a chef, waiter, two restaurant patrons, and the female scooter pilot. As usual, these included Minifigs all feature the classic smiling Lego head. I like to think of the blonde man as a Lego Owen Wilson.

Huw's Parisian Restaurant 10243 Review Top View

Huw notes that the increased detail means that the Restaurant takes longer to build. All three floors are furnished, with the bottom floor featuring an impressive amount of details. From the fully tiled flooring, to the full kitchen, everything here looks great.

Huw's Parisian Restaurant 10243 Review Front

The Lego Parisian Restaurant is an excellent new entry in the Modular Building theme. The previous two seemed to be missing a certain spark for some fans, but this set has reignited their enthusiasum. The other good news is that there are no stickers this time around. Everything here is given the premium treatment from Lego.

“Modular buildings have come a long way since Cafe Corner, which was just an empty shell, haven’t they…”

The Madness from the Sea. The Great Cthulhu in Lego.

Carl Merriam's The Madness From The Sea, Lego Cthulhu

“It lumbered slobberingly into sight and gropingly squeezed Its gelatinous green immensity through the black doorway… The stars were right again, and what an age-old cult had failed to do by design, a band of innocent sailors had done by accident. After vigintillions of years great Cthulhu was loose again, and ravening for delight.”

— H.P Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu

Carl Merriam's The Madness From The Sea, Lego Cthulhu Back

Carl Merriam has created a horrifying Cthulhu Lego MOC. With a whole lot of specialized Lego pieces that one would not normally associate with a build like this. There are Velociraptor pieces, Medusa bodies, and weird tentacle bits. All of these are combined into a huge SNOT style figure. Which is instantly recognizable, and captures the terror of this monster.

Carl Merriam's The Madness From The Sea, Lego Cthulhu Face

A lot of the details really stand out. A lot of Lego builds have problems when viewed up close, but this Cthulhu looks even better when zoomed in. Especially the mouth area.

Carl Merriam's The Madness From The Sea, Lego Cthulhu Foot

The other stand out detail of “The Madness from the Sea” is the little Lego steam ship. The simplicity is a great contrast to the much more detailed Cthulhu. It also lends a sense of scale to the figure. This thing is supposed to be monstrously big. But, best of all is that this little detail adds so much to the story of this MOC.
