Science Fiction and the Lego Friends make for a strange combination that works well. Flickr user, colgs3b, has been building a whole series of Hardsuits for the Friends. These mechas appear to be in scale with the other Lego Friends figures. But you wont find them tending horses of farming. Although they may train in Karate during their off time. The first of the Hardsuit Friends is Blacktron Olivia. Using theming elements from the classic Lego Blacktron, Olivia looks like someone you would not want to mess with.
Olivia is not fighting alone. Her mother is also on the front lines wielding a massive gun and a deceptively friendly pink and teal paint scheme.
Hardsuit Stephanie is also present. With a purple and teal and yellow suit. Stephanie appears to be able to fly. Making her extremely dangerous.
When in danger the strongest Hardsuits are needed to hold the front line. Here M-Tron Mia is ready to defend against anything. Make sure to be very careful as her magnet technology is extremely deadly.

The Lego Friends have been finding themselves in all sorts of Lego MOCs lately. Especially in the Space or Science Fiction theme. Bermudafreze, of Flickr, has build this deadly Lego Friends Mech. The Mech features a gatling gun, a massive clamp, missiles and bone crushing treads. In fact the treads are especially nice, built out of ball joint pieces. That idea looks great in this build. This mech unit is ready for whatever is thrown at it.
These Lego Friends inspired cyborgs are the creation of Larry Lars. Who has been refining the robotic body for a few years now. Which has paid off well with these awesome cyborgs. The first one (white, black hair) was created in 2012, while the newest (white, red hair and blue) are from 2013. The compact building style looks extremely delicate, but the end result is worth it. This is a great example of the Lego telephone being put to use. These Lego Friend Cyborgs look like they could fit into a Masamune Shirow manga (Appleseed, Ghost in the Shell).
Lego made a smart move by allowing the Lego Friends figures to fit into the Lego System. This allows the various body parts to be mix and matched with other Lego pieces. The Lego Minifigure style hair can be used on the Friends figures. This greatly expands the available hair styles for your figures. Here the Lego Friends head has been matched with the anime style Minifig hair from the Exo-Force theme.

M.C. Escher created one of the most memorable works of art in 1953, titled Relativity. Since then there have been hundreds of representations of this work by other artists. This Lego Star Wars version of Relativity is the work of Paul Vermeesch. He has created this gravity defying and perspective distorting work completely out of Lego. It is completely seamless and the SNOT techniques used here are flawless. In fact, I don’t think there is one errant stud present. Lego Star Wars Relativity sums up the original Trilogy in roughly six scenes. The puzzling nature of this is amazing.

Being an infamous scoundrel means that Han Solo has be able to fight (or talk) his way out of any situation. That’s why it is an absolute must to carry a DL-44 heavy blaster pistol. Easy to hide, but still deadly in a firefight. This version of Han Solo’s Blaster is a great mini build. The whole gun is built using just 15, or so, Lego pieces. Including a brown carrot, which might just be the most ingenious use for it yet.
Han Solo’s Blaster is the creation of Obedient Machine. See more over at Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/obedientmachine/9474934687/
