The Grim Reaper

Ordo built this spooky Halloween-themed build. I love the cleanliness of the build, and the presentation is top-notch. 

The last lullaby

Pure mechanical awesomness

I really cannot get enough of Octavian43's M-45 Grizzly mech. It's got everything a mech should have: impressive structure, big guns and lots of detail. I love it.

How Bionicle Should Be

This Bionicle MOC by Nick V. is absolutely gorgeous.  The whole creation flows from one part to the next seamlessly, and the result is astounding.

"So long boys, have fun storming the castle!"

That wouldn't be terribly hard with this awesome siege tower. Sam Schmidt built it a few weeks ago, but I feel like blogging it anyway. My favorite details of the Iron Scorpion are the sweet thatched roof and the intimidating chains on the back.

Pirate Paradise

Grant Davis and Eli Willsea made this beautiful MOC of a pirate hideout.  The rockwork, folliage, and buildings are all amazing, but the shading of the water really makes this creation stand out.

The White Tree of Gondor

Disco86, a prolific German castle builder, brings a great rendition of the White Tree of Gondor from the The Lord of the Rings. The real sweet details, though, are the elegant tree made from plates and lacking more special parts and the slope-cobbled floor.

Fullnilson

Fullnilson is a LEGO photographer who uses Photoshop and great camera effects to create his scenes. Mostly showcasing Star Wars figures and vehicles, he occasionally branches out into some other themes, such as superheroes and Harry Potter. Here are three of my personal favourites from him:

The land of Aurora

The dynamic duo of Tyler Clites and Nannan Zhang, known for their terrific collaborations, steal the show once more with the Aurora, apparently inspired by the game Bastion . All the details are amazing, but my favorite is the turquoise  round tower on the left. Take a look for yourself!

LL-931

Lego Junkie gives us a nice shot of NCS asymmetry in the form of the LL-931. I'm loving the large hull and, for some reason, the antennae sticking out at right angles. Nice!

Colours in a garden

This beautiful, beautiful MOC by Joshua Brooks is a wonderful example of how to use colour whilst building. He's not been afraid to mix and match different types and colours of foliage, and so the plant life ranges from orange to lavender. Truly stunning.

Legends in LEGO

I really love this scene by legophthalmos, it's small and rather simple but the execution is perfect. Depicting the climax of the story of Perseus and Andromeda, you don't even see the slain foe, the Cetus, but the carnage all around suggests that the battle has been brutal.

'Black tower of adamant...'

Anyone who's ever seen the Lord of the Rings film will be able to appreciate this build from the great Ian Spacek, myself included. The tower itself is very well photographed, as black is renowned for being a pain to take pictures of, and I love the angle of the rock it's balanced on.

Sonic Screwdriver

Fans of Doctor Who should love this build from Victor, who's made a fantastic replica of the Sonic Screwdriver belonging to the Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors. The chrome parts are not all official, but what does that matter - it looks fantastic!

Time for something a little different

Nick V, someone I admire for his crazy spaceships, has built this...thing, that's actually really cool. Apparently it is a mystical shaman called Oobahni Flaxpants, a name that suits the model perfectly! There are loads of cool techniques and pieces used here - spot the clone helmet and the Ninja Turtle shell.

Derfel is back! Enough said.

Yep, he's back, and with another truly stunning castle MOC! Luke's builds are always spectacular, but this could be the best yet. Strange colour choices abound, but somehow they work perfectly. Also...those sloping roofs are incredible! See for yourself.

Battle Beasts

These great little Battle Beasts, based off the old line of toys, were built by Garry (Garry_rocks), and they all look extremely good. I really like the fact that they're all similar-looking but there are specific differences between them, and of course the colours are very nice indeed.
