Who says a castle has to be grey?

Because grey castles are so 2003.

I kid, I kid. But this little red number by Lukasz W (LL) really caught my attention. It’s simple, but avoids some typical castle-trappings like boring walls and such. I like the vibrant color, and the white makes everything “pop” just a little bit more.

This was my entry for the Nintendo Shortcuts Showcase contest. I litterally finished it days before the deadline and mailed it to them by express mail. I came up with the idea out of no-where. I just woke up early one morning, pulled out all my Lego’s and started building. After I was done, I decided to make this film. Tell me what you think! If you all like it…I think I’ll do something even more amazing. Oh—btw—I didn’t use my screename (Kooberz) cause I don’t want Nintendo to own that.

Catch! calls the Once-ler.

He let something fall. It’s a Truffula seed. The last one of all! You’re in charge of the last of the Truffula Seeds. And Truffula Trees are what everyone needs. Plant a new Truffula. Treat it with care. Give it clean water. And feed it fresh air. Grow a forest. Protect it from axes that hack. Then the Lorax and all of his friends may come back.

The Once-ler’s house is brought to you by Jason Allemann‘s girlfriend, who built this with his advice and collection.


A Tower to Protect

Jaka Kupina’s (Captain Flint) Guard Tower is packed with fun little details. The whole thing manages to look overgrown, un-cared for, and generally miserable while still having such a clean, lovely presentation. I particularly like the fence line, myself.

The world has changed, Sensei

There tends to be some comfort in a glimmer of color, a bit of hope in a dark place. Seb Arts has illustrated that beautifully in his recent creation:

I really don’t think words do much justice for this piece, so I will let the photos stand for themselves. You can see more over on MOCpages.

Deck the hall with boughs of LEGO

The weather outside might be frightful, but we’ve got plenty to keep us inside and warm. And that includes building ornaments for our trees, if that’s the holiday you choose to celebrate.

Chris McVeigh has posted his series of five ornaments, each designed to bring a bit of life and character to your decorations this holiday season! Each has instructions, so happy building!

LEGO Liberty Inn, London

I’m finding it difficult to pick my favorite shot for this blog, because the Liberty Inn by ZCerberus is just lovely. Every angle has something visually captivating. I picked one to put here, but I whole-heartedly recommend perusing the flickr gallery.
