Psycho Clickipiller

This psychedelic Clickipiller train by Megan Rothrock (megzter1) is both a cute creative concept, and a bit disturbing. I especially like the googly eyes and odd angle of the mouth.

I think I would generally be more into trains if they were covered in Clikits.

The historic Grand Hotel in Kristiansund

Daniel Asc created a faithful replica of the Grand Hotel in Kristiansund, Norway. His model was built 100 years after the original landmark, which was established just before the 20th century. For a creation this large, it didn’t lose out on quality. See what I mean and check out the detail shots in the gallery on Flickr.

Izzo brings the heavy firepower

While some of us have been taking a LEGO hiatus, one of our favorite Japanese builders has returned from his own. After a break of more than a year and a half, Izo Yoshimura (Izzo’s LegoStyle) began posting new mecha last October. Izzo’s latest was inspired by some Hollywood concept art:

It’s great to have him back, and apologies to our readers (and Izzo himself) for missing the resurgence of such a notable talent. For those of you new to LEGO fandom in the last couple of years, make sure to go through Izzo’s blog, LegostyleLog.

I’m breaking my rule of not posting digital models…but this layout was just too good to pass up. The design of the buildings are very realistic and no doubt probably took a LONG time to build, but it was worth it. Scrunched in between the two buildings on the right is lgorlando’s barbershop.

Curiouser and curiouser.

Tyler (Legohaulic) takes us on a journey of the strange and weird, down the rabbit hole and (hopefully!) back again.

I think the perspective and parts use is fantastic (that glass table is just lovely!), and everything together REALLY helps create the atmosphere.

Belgium: World Champions of government formation

Occasionally, a LEGO creation emerges of such intriguing oddity that it requires a second and third look. Such is the case with “Someone needs a little bit of motivation” by Matti (Matn). Yes, those are French Belgian fries:

Someone needs a little bit of motivation

Apparently, Belgium has been without a government for nearly 10 months (292 days and counting). Click through to the photo page on Flickr for the entertaining description of the symbolism in Matti’s LEGO political cartoon.
