Dream House

Fallingwater

I, as a huge fan of modern architecture, very much appreciate this lovely MOC by Legonardo Davidy, done in his signature style. It's a beautiful MOC of a beautiful house, with some fantastic stone and water work goin' there. On another note, I apologize for the lack of bloggage recently, I will try to post more often.

Giant crane

Rogue Bantha has done it again with the massive Red Titan, a construction ship done with style. I've never seen a construction spaceship before, it's a relatively untouched topic. Great job!

Dead or Alive?

MinifgNick brings us a spectacular build back from the dead! The cáfe filled with former humans has so many details like that awesome jukebox or the neat gumball machine!

Oldie but Goodie

So, the other day I finally decided to join MOCpages. I was surfing around and I found mondayn00dle's page. Shortly afterwards, after some looking around on his page, I found his Dawn Forge theme, which I promptly fell in love with. I read the background info and descriptions for every single one of his incredible mechs, and they are just fantastic. Even though these creations are a few years old, I still think they are blog-worthy.You really should go see all of them, but I'll post just one example here. Here's his FOUNDATION Heavy Assault Mech.

Another Fabulous Build By Alice Finch

Quidditch Pitch by Bippity Bricks

We've all seen her Hogwarts Castle and her beautiful Rivendell, but now she's done it once more, building a huge quidditch pitch! Bippity Bricks has made a fantastic model depicting the fictional sport, and the build has so much detail which makes it truly splendid, great job!

Crazy castle

Castle Relativity by Stephen Boe

Stephen Boe's 'Castle Relativity', built for the MocAthalon on MOCpages, is a real beauty of a creation. Both styles of stonework blend perfectly together, which was one of the things that caught my eye when I saw the thumbnail. Enjoy this crazy castle!

Red Racer

Micro GARC by 4estFeller

Well, I think 4estFeller's latest build has put the final nail on convincing me to try GARC sometime. This sleek, well-stickered ship actually has the look of a racecar to it. I also enjoy micro scale spaceships, so this is a winner.

Wow, THE BRICK TIME Team has produced another amazing Northland build. This gate looks impregnable, and they must know how I love 'brick bricks'.

Rug Express

Magic Carpet by Âtin

Using only two types of pieces Âtin has done an excellent original masterpiece here! The build, competing in the annual MOCathalon, has a great design and pattern making it one of my favourites in the competition!

Ruler of the skies

Crimson Storm by JonHall18
Crimson Storm, a photo by JonHall18 on Flickr.
JohnHall18 strikes again with another masterfully crafted Sky-Fi plane. The staggered holes on the guns look very sweet, and the bold red really makes it pop. I apologize for my general decrease in blogging rate recently, I am currently on vacation and am finding it hard to remember to make time to post.

I love a decent dragon!

Friend or Foe - 1 by qi_tah
Friend or Foe - 1, a photo by qi_tah on Flickr.
This takes my breath away every time I look at it. That dragon...I haven't seen many better. According to the builder, Gabriel Thomson, or qi_tah, the scene depicts a kind of dragon called an emerald green spitter, which is testing its spitting accuracy on some dummies. I feel sorry for those dummies!

Silver Bolt...with a lovely backdrop

Silver Bolt by lisqr

Now this is refreshing. Apparently a 'next generation main battle tank for the UN peace keeping force', lisqr, who has been blogged here recently, has done an amazing job in keeping the tank as the centre of attention, but at the same time creating a backdrop that takes the MOC to almost complete perfection. Very inspiring.

Stealthsuit

Garry_rocks has built this cool mech in Olive Green, apparently from Warhammer40k, which I know nothing about, but it's a great mech nonetheless.

Medieval Life

The Serfs of Warwick Manor by General JJ

As we all know the MOColympics are taking place in the Lego community and the competition is on! the General JJ brothers have created an amazing reperesentation of what life for the serfs was like in medieval times. The build is bursting with small details such as the magnificent plow and the incredible well! In my opinion this build has a really strong chance of winning in this category!

The Grand Joust of Gisellicburg is the place to be!

The Grand Joust of Gisellicburg by Mark of Falworth

We've waited a while for this, holding our breath in anticipation of Mark and Steven's next MOC, that we all know will feature in their upcoming book. Well, I saw this through bleary eyes this morning, and it's awesome. Look how many minifigs throng there! See the splendour of the royal pavilion! This really is the place to be, or at least the place to watch with wide eyes.

Defend the base at all costs

This is one sweet Mech. Devid VII managed to work the NCS colors and feel into it, and most importantly....look at those greebles!! Ye-Haw!!

I want one NOW!

Working LEGO Computer Keyboard by JK Brickworks

Have you ever seen a keyboard made out of LEGO? No, neither have I, but my first glance at this brilliant MOC from JK Brickworks made me desperate to get one of my own, mostly because IT WORKS! Anyway, I should calm down now and let you look at the photo. There are some funny features to this, just look at 'Caps' lock!

And the CCCXI Master Builder is...

CCCXI Master Builder by Disco86

...Paul, also known as Disco86! I know this is a few days late, but I looked at the photo again and felt that I should give a tribute to this building genius. It's not only castle he builds, either, some of his sci-fi builds are out of this world (cheesy pun intended)!

USS Alabama

USS Alabama by 'LL'

LL, who normally builds castle, has taken a step outside his comfort zone and created this awesome battleship. So much light bley greebling and attention to detail really make this a good MOC. I have now proven that I can blog something other than starfighters!

Zap Into the Unknown

Teleportation Room by Gilcélio

As we all know the Iron Builder competition between Gilcélio and Lego Junkie is taking place in the month of March. The fantastic duel has brought out some amazing MOCs, but I belive this is the coolest one yet! Built by Gilcélio, the design of the apparartus is just amazing so is the rest of the structure! Great job!

He smells you...

Erebor Gold by lisqr

I saw this on my Flickr feed, and immediately knew that it needed blogging. lisqr has created the scene perfectly, and I can't get enough of the stone Dwarves or the walls at the back!

Ready to take the squadron on

I apologize for seemingly blogging nothing but Starfighters lately, but I keep seeing so many cool ones that need to be blogged! Anyway, this blue beauty by tardisblue has some nice coloring, and some NPU. I promise my next post won't be a Starfighter!

Victorian Workhouse

Please Sir, can I have more? by peggyjdb
Please Sir, can I have more?, a photo by peggyjdb on Flickr.
Yet another fabtastic build by peggyjdb showing the workhouse where Oliver Twist lived before he was placed under the supervision of an undertaker. James has beautifully described the style of Victorian houses. The details on the roof and the front gate are just excellent! Fantastic job James!

Space Elephants

Particle Fusion by A Plastic Infinity

Space Elephants. That's what A Plastic Infinity's newest straighter made me think of. Very cool and alien looking, nice use of the Barraki parts.
