Just when you think the injustice can't possibly get any worse Murphy's law steps in and slaps you in the face.

That said, this image is hilarious!

This is an amazing build, just in time for Easter Weekend. The use of the red dishes to show pooled blood is really clever and spot on!

The Iron Builder throw down between Si-MOCs and onosendai2600 has generated some amazing builds over the last week. The latest offering from Si-MOCs is The Claw from the animated movie Toy Story. This build was instantly recognizable from the thumbnail and made me smile from ear to ear.

I'm a little behind today and did not realize that is is St. Patricks Day until I was handed a green drink from a server wearing a shamrock hat about an hour ago.

I had originally planned post a different Lil'FIG today, but how could I pass up this opportunity :)

Happy St. Pactrick's Day

As promised lil'FIGS have been unblurred and are being released today with this intro image.

This project has been submitted to Cuusoo and is under an initial 72 hour review. After that time, if is approved to proceed as a project, I will add a link so you can check it out.

In the meantime, I have been working non stop for the last 2 months on different designs for this project and now have enough to post at least 1 image a day for the next 2 month. Some of these figures will be part of the Cuusoo project, some were just fun builds because of licensing conflicts.

I won't give the history of this project because it is varied and long, but when I sat down and tried to think of stuff that inspired me, subconsciously or otherwise, the two at the top of the list have to be POP! and Cube Dudes.

I had a blast making all these figures and I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed building them :)

Even the most devoted Lego fans could struggle to wrap their brains around some of these tricky puzzles.

A series of ten conundrums made of up of Lego bricks are designed to symbolise famous films, books, songs, and band titles - with fans challenged to work out which one is which.

I have yet to build any Steampunk themed MOC, but hopefully when I get to that point my first attempt will be this good!

And its another fantastic use of the Star Wars planets.

My first foray into the world of Steampunk, my maiden voyage as it were... hence the name.

Micro Star Trek

I've been having some fun making micro versions of Star Trek space vehicles this week. I got the idea for the borg cube when a pair of Lego Dice bodies fell out of my miscellaneous container.
I've been watching a lot of NASA documentaries and had outer space on my mind and immediately thought the dice would make a simple, but perfect Borg Cube. And then I naturally needed to make an Enterprise for the Cube to chase down!

The 2x2 tiles on the cube are custom printed
