Modular Hairstyles!

This modular creation, by Flickr user "Myko-", is a joy to the eye. The amount of details is awesome.

The ground floor is a hair salon and the floors above are terraced apartments. The new "Brick" brick is put to great use on the apartments. All the different colors of the plants in the terrace gardens are really beautiful.

Hannibal crossing the Alps

This moc by flickr user "rhakam91" show us a great piece of history.

The is a diorama of Hannibal crossing the Alps on his quest to conquer ancient Rome.

Over fifteen of the Roman collectible minifigures were used to create this moc. The rocks, cliffs and the bridge are very detailed and well constructed.

A marching Ent

The world of Lord of the Rings is turning into Lego fast!

Here we have an Ent, the large tree like creatures whom Merry and Pipin run into while fleeing from the Orcs. This Ent is created by Flickr user "2x4".

Obviously the brown and green make it look like a tree. But the placing of the leaves where the beard would be is very creative.

Peterbilt truck

Here we have an awesome Peterbilt truck created by Flickr user "bricksonwheels".

The details, and all the chrome pieces,on the truck are beautiful and make it every truckers dream.

The creator has put his Photoshop skills to work and has created a wonderful see through look of the engine compartment.

The rural train station

This is a beautiful little rural train station built by Flickr user "Asperka".

The station is built very nicely. There a some fun little details like the bricks above the windows and door. Also the use of red fenders above the windows on the top floor is very creative.

Check it out on Flickr and MOCpages.

Who ya gonna call?!

This is a fun MOC of the Ghostbusters firehouse. The MOC was created by Flickr user "Corioso".

It looks a lot like the real fire house from the movies, and so does the converted ambulance.

The face of the building is very detailed. The use of different colors gives it a nice weathered look, just like a real building would look.

The minifigs are fun and actually look kind of like the actors.

Star Wars: The Old and the New!

We are back with a new Star Wars: The Old and the New! Today we will be taking a look at the two different Landspeeder sets released in the Star Wars theme.

Both of these sets depict one scenes from the movie where Obi Wan and Luke travel the desserts of Tatooine.

First we have the old set 7110 released in 1999. This set consists of 49 pieces and 2 minifigures, Obi Wan and Luke.

This is a small set that actually looks a lot like the landspeeder from the movie. On the down side this set does not include C3PO and R2-D2 who, in the movie, travel with them.

Set on

Here we have the new and improved landspeeder released in 2010 set number 8092. This set has 163 pieces and 5 minifigures. This is a big improvement from the old set, although the price is a bit higher as well.

In this set we get the new flesh versions of Obi Wan and Luke, C3PO, R2-D2, one Stormtrooper and a sentry droid. The sentry droid does not really count as a minifig in my opinion, its just a few pieces and nothing special.

The detail of the landspeeder has increased a lot from the old set and together with the extra minifigs this set makes a good improvement over the old one.

Set on

The Monster!

Flickr user "Imagine" has created a beautiful Cthulhu, a mythical monster.

The monster it self is created beautifully. All the different angles and the black tentacles make it very recognizable as a monster of myth.

The small building on the right is constructed from the new masonry profile bricks. This makes the building look even more realistic.
