This nano scale Lego AT-ST is created by NS Brick Designs. A neat thing about this little mech is that it is made out of very common parts, usually the kind you get two or three extras of in a set. You can find lightsaber hilts, the small Lego guns, and even a Minifigures hand in this build. The chicken walker style design of the AT-ST is surprisingly sturdy at this scale, and is not as fragile as it looks. The scene is finished off with a SNOT style rock base, and a little Lego antenna (which represents a Stormtrooper).
NS Brick Designs made a quick set of instructions to show how to build your own nano AT-ST. The whole thing uses just 18 common Lego pieces. The most confusing part is in step two. There are three 1×1 clips and a 1×1 brick. The two on the bottom are facing away from each other and connected by the clip on the top. This is a fun little build
Purple is an extremely unfamiliar color for most Lego builders. In the past Lego has associated purple with Lego Friends or other girl-targeted themes. But, purple is on the rise. A lot of the Super Heroes sets feature a good amount of purple, and the color is popping up in small amounts everywhere. The popularity of Lego Friends also means that it easy to acquire a lot of purple bricks quickly. Tim Goddard decided to create a whole Lego Space fleet in micro scale using purple. This collection of spaceships is known as the Aquilax Fleet. Featuring a Destroyer, Frigate, Flagship and a few smaller starfighters. The gold accents and white base color contrast with the purple perfectly. Creating very clean, but almost alien looking starships. By restricting the part selection, and focusing on a micro-build, the designer has forced themselves to get creating with the Lego pieces.
Tim Goddard has also put out a call for other Lego builders to contribute to a Micro-/Nano-Space Fly-In. Where you can “contribute to the rag-tag fleet of space-based Refugees, Imperiums, Federations, Independents, Raiders, Pirates, Aliens, Ancients & More.” Check out http://www.mocslug.com/fly-in2014/ for more details. Contributors will be able to display their collection at the AFOLCON/BRICK 2014.
Look at these tiny Lego robots. They look so cute, you almost want to give them a hug (watch out for the chainsaw arms!). These WIFFY robots are the creation of Flickr user F L A V I O. They look like they belong in a Mega Man video game. And, could fit in with the Tachikoma walker/robots from the Ghost in the Shell universe. In which case lets hope they never learn to revolt and overthrow their human masters. Their cuteness could kill us all.
There are many Lego Despicable Me Minions out there. Currently one of the most popular themes in Lego. Just like in the film, these Minions come in allshapesand sizes. The Mini Minion is one of the tiniest ones out there. Yet it manages to preserve the character and personality that these little creatures possess. Created with just six Lego pieces, you would be hard pressed to use less. A clip, hat, two hands, a Lego head, and binoculars (plus some string) is all you need.
