Enter the FUN HAUS! A celebration of life … through death!

Continuing our coverage of great LEGO models debuted at Brickcon 2012, Paul Hetherington just posted his FUN HAUS! building, which won “Best in Town.” (Paul has a serious winning streak going — he also won Town trophies in 2010 and 2011, and won our “Best Apocafied Building” prize during Zombie Apocafest 2009 for his Turns at Midnight carousel.)


Paul’s funhouse was inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) celebrations, as well as the work of artist Pooch. The building features moving cars as well as letters, so the video is well worth a watch.

Motorized Kenworth Road Train

Paul (Sariel), one of the greatest Technic builders, seems to achieve the impossible by building a remote-controlled Lego truck capable of hauling a load of almost 20 pounds. Don’t believe it? Take a look at the video below.


Thanks for the tip vmln8r!

The Carnival is in town!

Matija Grguric takes us back to the Wild West with this fun carnival scene. But the crown jewel of this diorama isn’t the crowded carnival atmosphere, the bank robbers or the western buildings, though all of those are very nice. What really makes it stand out is the fact that it is powered. Who doesn’t like motorized dancing girls?

Motorized Leopard 2 tank

Paul (Sariel) of LUGPol completed an accurate and functional model of the Leopard 2 German tank. According to former Armor Officer Brad Edmondson who sent me the link, this is “by far the best representation of a Leopard2 tank in Lego yet.” You can check out the video of the model in action on Youtube.

Hungry for kills

As best stated by the builder, Huib Versteeg (spacie 11), “this monstrosity will either blast the enemy into a trillion bits or devour it. And if it doesn’t do either of those, well, then it’s malfunctioning and should be disintegrated.”

Did I mention it actually walks?
