Up in the trees!

This is a tree house from medieval times created by mocpages user "Z Cerberus".

The tree house sits on three trees and is coverd by some tree branches and leafs. On the ground there are forest flowerbeds, two knights on horses and some of the tree house inhabitants.

The trees are constructed very nicely, the look very real.

Spider-Man!

With the new Spider-Man movie coming to theaters soon, we now have a truly awesome Spider-Man Lego creation.

This is a scene, created by Mocpages and Flickr user "Mr. Xenomurphy", of a battle between the Green Goblin and Spider-Man.

Spider-Man and the Green Goblin are both suspended in a creative way. Spider-Man is hanging from his spiderweb and the Green Goblin is situated on the smoke from his flight device.

The explosion of the car is a real thing of beauty. The use of red, orange and yellow pieces is just perfect.

The building is a beautiful Lego creation in itself. There are a watertower and what looks like an airconditioning system. The front of the building is full of details like, the fire escapes, the brick textures and the garage doors on the first floor. Also there is some graffiti on the first floor walls. Look closely and you will find the graffiti artist.

Star Wars micro madness!

Built for the Iron Builder contest on Flickr, the objective is to create a moc that in what ever way contains the new blue Battle Droid torso. These are two Tatooine micro creations.

This is a micro build of the Boonta Eve podrace on Tatooine. You can clearly see that two of the three podracers contain the new blue torso's. The other podracer is a very beautifully constructed micro version of Sebulba's podracer.

Built by Flickr user "2 much caffeine". Check it out on Flickr.





This creation depicts the Mos Eisley spaceport. Again the blue torso is used in the creation. This time is part of the blue spaceship. Also this creation is mostly built in snot style. The entire main hanger is constructed of bricks on their sides.

Built by Flickr user "pasukaru76". Check is out on Flickr.

Medieval Windmill

The windmill is a very important part of every medieval village or farm. They process and often store the food and crops from the farm.

This windmill was created by Flickr user "Candia_30". The use of different colours and the curving technique make this a beautifull little windmill.

Just imagine several of these on a big farm with lots of crops and farm animals!

Modern 1950's House


This is a beautiful 1950's house created by Flickr user Rob Bender.

He has created this house for the Dwell Magazine 1950's Modern House contest.

The house is constructed mostly out of 1x2 flat bricks.

The construction of the roof on the left side is very nicely done. And the windows work really well for this house.
