The Scooter

Don't have a lot of money but need to get from A to B? Buy the Scooter.
I love this little build by pasakaru76... it makes me think that maybe the future doesn't need rocket ships and drones and time-traveling Deloreans. All it needs is the easiest, slickest way to get from A to B. 

Samurai mountain climber

At first glance, this vehicle by Lino Martens looks like any other chunky, jacked-up off-road vehicle. But the model was built to commemorate a very special feat: the achievement of the highest peak ever climbed by a car. In 2007, Gonzalo Bravo and Eduardo Canales reached a height of 21,942 feet on the Ojos del Salada volcano with their heavily modified 1986 Suzuki Samurai. 
This was built for the Let's Break Some Records LUGNuts challenge. You can view more photos in Lino's photostream, and the source image here

The Oscar Awards

Aaaaaaand the Oscar goes to...Oscar. 
Great build and presentation here by Legohaulic. The character himself is nice, but the scene would not be complete without an expertly built trash can and some discarded food to litter the ground. I also like the simple yet effective backdrop constructed out of tiles.

Darraor Castle

For this year's Tourney over on MOCpages, the theme is to build something based on an Arthurian Legend. For his MOC, Isaac Snyder chose Sir Balin and the Holy Hollows, and produced this magnificent model of Darraor Castle:
You can read the story of Sir Balin here. Plenty more images of Isaac's creation can be seen on MOCpages here... go check them out!

City slickers

Today Brickology's going full speed ahead and bringing you the finest in luxury vehicles. Both of these bad boys use stylish techniques and shiny chromed bricks to give you the best riding experience in the inner city. 

First up is Ordo's model of Asami's Satomobile from Legend of Korra
Speeding along behind it, spruced up with shiny custom parts from Chrome Block City, we have this roarin' Harley Davidson Cali-style lowrider from bricksonwheels
This concludes our tour of the mean streets of LEGO City. You will now be escorted back to your primitive sedans and minivans. If anyone would like to help us scrub the tire marks off the pavement, that would be much appreciated.

Liebherr LR 634

While "indestructible sprocket" and "self balancing suspension rods" don't mean much to me, I get the sense this Liebherr LR 634 loader model by LimitlessBricks is pretty darn realistic. And it's in 1:13 scale. Also: those are a lot of trans-light-blue plates. 
There are loads more images in this Flickr album, including some shots that show the building process- great if you want to build something like this yourself. You can also visit the builder's website,

CM9 Utilikoma

Now that I have a Flickr account I'm trying to get more involved in building contests and putting my own LEGO creations on the web. This morning I wanted a little inspiration for Marchikoma, and upon clicking over to my Flickr feed I was pleased to see this great build by .Tromas:
This is a refreshing change from the more typical war machines and creepy mechanoids usually seen during the upcoming theme month, and I think it's built especially well. But it means I've got stiff competition to face when I upload my own think tank. Better go start building...

Katoren Jail

As you might know from one of my previous posts, Arabic/Middle Eastern architecture is one of my favorite styles. I love seeing MOCs from that theme, and this one by jsnyder002 is just about perfect. 
The scene consists of a jail and another building that I think is an interesting (but very good) choice: a cartographer's workshop. Some of the building techniques like the jail walls and the roof on the workshop are really nice, and overall this is just a great MOC. You can see more photos on Flickr here

Mechanical minion

I just blogged one of Cole Blaq's mechanoids the other day. This one is smaller but no less impressive. It should also be recognized for some serious Nice Part Use: the cabinet doors, rapier, and could that be a trans-light-blue watch segment?
Impressive minifigure as well; it fits the theme and looks great without distracting from the main model. The use of the brand-new Ultra Agents helmet with some older minifig parts somehow looks very good together.

Lunar truggy

Good afternoon, here's an adorable Classic Space-style vehicle from billyburg:
I'm a big fan of this builder's style and if you haven't seen his creations before, I suggest you click over to his Flickr photostream to see what else he's concocted.

Mini outpost

Tyler Clites (Legohaulic) built this as the Third Prize for the recent Interstellar Outpost Contest on Flickr, but this little MOC is so cool I'd be just as happy with it as with the first prize. 


Sometimes texture can make a MOC, and that's the case with this mecha by Cole Blaq, entitled "ZF-073." I love the red boat plates used to create that bumpy texture on the front. The color scheme is pretty cool as well.
