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.
This really is a cool concept! Flickr user 2 Much Caffeine posted this model on his photostream today. It's a television set with a superman minifig on top of it. The background on the TV scrolls so it looks like Superman is flying. Very neat idea, and great execution!
When I got into building MOCs as an adult, I realized that this hobby was going to be a bit more expensive than I thought. It really helps to have a lot of pieces in your parts bin. When you're trying to figure out just how that wing or car is going to go together, having many different bits to try goes a long way towards making a better MOC. I was faced with getting to this point of having a big collection, without spending a fortune. My solution: buy LEGOs in bulk. You can buy huge lots of LEGO and save yourself some money by sorting through the lot yourself. Sometimes you even get a minifig or two that you can sell to reduce the cost even further.
This underground mining loader by M_longer is certainly a unique vehicle. This LEGO version is built from the real vehicle's blueprints, and lots of firsthand experience. I'm not sure how the driver is able to see what he is scooping up, but I guess it must work somehow. Check out the MOCPages page for more pictures and a video.
