For any Atlantis fans out there here's a post for you. This model is both creative and  inspiring, because it has sea creatures float in the air, using translucent clear rods to suspend the floating creatures in a most lifelike appearance.  Also, the use of many different plants, different types of seaweed. And interestingly enough the terracing used to make it so it doesn't look quite flat, and the random pieces of rock here and there.

Micro Scale Alien Abduction

A Lego alien abduction built in micro-scale! this creation looks like it was built quite fast. The black and white circle studs I think are supposed to be cattle, sheep, and cows. I think the best part is the farm house, the book being used as a roof is very creative.

Cubedudes, as the guys are called for their squarish head, are not regular minifigures. They can be anything you want them to be, including real business people or figures of our imagination, like wizards, devils, goblins, trolls or vikings (like the viking shown above). Cubedudes are getting more and more popular. I think that soon we might have cubedudes instead of minifigures because cubedudes are more detailed.

Micro-Scale Castle

                                                                                                       Micro scale is when Lego creations are smaller and are more of a landscape creation. Here is a micro scale of a castle that I made, please notice the unique rock formation supporting the castle and also note the vine like plants growing off the sides.

Medieval Crossbow

Here's a post about a crossbow that I designed. it has a really straight forward design. As in the picture it is made out of five pieces. The first piece is sort of a gun or a megaphone, the next piece is a 1x1 plate with vertical holder, the third piece is a 1x1 lamp holder, then the next two pieces are white horns, according to Pick A Brick.

Series 5 Lego Minifigures are Almost Out!

 Just caught word from the owner of Whistle Stop Toys that these would come out soon, I truly cannot wait! For a castle theme I might recommend the dwarf with the winged helmet, double bladed axe, black beard, and the round shield looks the best, the Cleopatra style lady holding the green snake also  looks pretty good, and the Gladiator with the knife and shield still looks awesome. I think these will sell even quicker than Series 4 minifigures did. I  like Series 5 minifigures a lot, I think they look great.

Lego Pirates of The Caribbean

Time for post number two. So who doesn't like Pirates of The Caribbean? And who reading this blog doesn't like Lego's? Yep, time for a new Lego series: Pirates of the Caribbean. So there are eight different Pirates of the Caribbean sets out so far. I have not bought any yet. If you haven't watched the movie then the Lego sets are kind of a spoiler. But I have seen the movie and I think that the Lego sets resemble what happens in the movie very well, especially in set code number 4192.  I think that the new series could lead to something big.
