The Nintendo Entertainment System, and a few years later, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System brings back a lot of memories from when I was a kid. It's probably because I was so light-headed from blowing in the cartridge slot to get the games to work...
This LEGO Nintendo controller is just right. I love the use of LEGO mini-fig heads for the buttons and I'm very curious as to how the start and reset buttons are attached.
Follow the link in the caption to see more pics of this wonderful SNES controller and see how it compares to a real-world controller. Now if only someone would make a Duck Hunt gun...
Here's another Blacktron spaceship from Shamisenfred on flickr. I love it when a builder takes multiple shots of their creations and then pastes them together like this in one photo. It lets you see all the best angles and features of the MOC without having to flip through an album.
On this ship, I particularly like the yellow accent colors spread throughout the black. It breaks up the lines on the ship and makes its features really stand out. I also love how the front opens up to access the cockpit. This is a great example of what you can do with a space themed MOC!
This microscale castle by flickr user pasukaru76 does a great job of displaying the beauty of a simple microscale model. As you know, several of my favorite LEGO models are built in microscale. This one deserves some recognition as well.
For starters, I really like the varying colors on the walls. It makes it look as though different stones were used in the castle's construction. I also really like the red roof, particularly at the peaks of the towers. The walls that extend from each tower also appear to be able to connect to any side of the towers, making this a very versatile model. With more towers and walls, you could build a sprawling medieval LEGO city!
Now this is what you call a diorama! Flickr user Mark of Falworth has created this scene of a Greek battle over the city of Tiylis.
I love how the action just seems to jump right out at you! I particularly love the streams of fire being thrown down on the attackers, and how the archers are poised, ready to release their arrows.
The buildings and the ship are also full of great detail. The columns on the great white hall are simply fantastic. Great work Mark!
Flickr user Jason son has some neat car and truck models, all made from LEGO. His latest is the Scania 142 semi tractor trailer truck. For starters, this model looks great! I love how he managed to get a smooth texture on the outside of the truck with no studs on top (SNOT). You can also see how the cab tilts forward to show the engine and drivetrain underneath. There are also some compartments on the side that open up to reveal some extra chains for tying down loads or pulling other trucks out of the ditch. Overall this is a great example of what kind of vehicles can be made out of LEGO.
