The Colosseum

A truly gigantic and beautiful Moc of the Colosseum built by Flickr user "TheBrickMan".

The Colosseum is built in a perfect oval shape and is divided in two halves. One half is built to look like the Colosseum in it's ancient Rome setting. The other half is what the Colosseum looks like in the present day.

The Restaurant

Flickr user "Pepa Quin" has built a huge restaurant. This is the RAM Restaurant and Brewery from Wheeling, Illinois.

The building is constructed mostly from Dark Red 1x2 plates.

The detailing of the installations on the roof is very well done. Also there is a little surprise on the roof...

The Haunted Castle

This is a very creepy haunted castle built by Flickr user "Burning Brick".

The builder used tons of awesome building techniques on this moc.

The black roof is built from small triple slope pieces. This makes the roof look very detailed.

The windows are built to resemble stained glass, which looks beautiful.

The plants, trees and ivy on the building make the whole building look even more scary.

Fish for everyone!

Again a beautiful creation by by dutch Lowlug member and Flickr user "Konajra".

This is a very fine steam trawler, built in minifig scale. Many of these have sailed the oceans in search of fish.

Like we have seen before from this builder the hull of the ship is simply amazing. Also the amount of detail on the ship is a joy to the eye.

Lego Cuusoo: Dark Bucket

Some exciting news from Cuusoo today, the Star Wars Dark Bucket has reached 10.000 votes!

This is a cool idea, since a lot of people would like to have a huge Stormtrooper army.

However it is unlikely Lego will make a set exactly like the one submitted. This because they do not hold the license for producing Star Wars products that consist solly of action figures (minifigs).

They entire Lego community is looking forward to what Lego will do with this idea.

Personally I hope they will now consider raising the number of minifigs in the regular sets.

Check it out on Cuusoo!

UPDATE: Unfortunately Lego has rejected the idea of the Bucket completely, due to licensing conflicts.

Nick Fury

Nick Fury needed a ride, and what a ride it is!

This is an awesome motorcycle built by Flickr user "_Tiler".

The motorcycle is constructed very nicely. I just love the small brown slope, it is instantly recognizable as the seat.

And also, Nick Fury is just awesome!
