Motorized Abrams Tank

This striking monstrosity by zackhariah not only is artfully crafted with SOT (studs on top) plating and pleasing shaping, but is also motorized. Is that cool or what?

"I assure you, we are quite safe from your friends here. "

"Your overconfidence is your weakness. "

Instead of succumbing to the traditional TLG Tie-fighter canopy, Greenskull139 built his own in this excellent recreation of the climactic scene from "Return of the Jedi". The intricacy of the design is impressive and doesn't feel out of place at all. Check out more pics (as well as a break down of the canopy) at his stream.

LL-210 Prospector

Hey guys, it's me, -AlexR-, from Flickr. I've been a part of the Un-Sung Brick for a while now, but I haven't been able to figure out how to post and such. I've finally figured it out, and I'm delighted to blog this amazing creation by Spacie 11.

Spacie 11's LL-210 Prospector is an amazing little creation that stays true to the Classic Space color scheme, and it uses some very interesting techniques. It has a very spider-ish vibe to it, and the legs have to be my favorite part, and the emblems on there add a nice touch.

All in all, this MOC is fantastic, and for sure deserves to be blogged.

While I'm still getting used to how the blog works, my posts may not be as well organized as everyone elses. -Alex

The Erion

TX5_cover, originally uploaded by SC Diprose.

Now this is a gorgeous ship! made by Flickr member SC Diprose, the shaping on the TX-5 Erion is top notch with all the pieces fitting together giving the overall ship a great sense of motion and flow. That coupled with a totally unique shape make this one of the best ships I've seen in a while. The photography is also fantastic and showcases the MOC perfectly.

Chris (Ironsniper) made this fantastic little bot/hardsuit thingy, which features posing and chubbyness at a relatively small scale. The parts usage on the BrickArms LMG is awesome too.

By the way, also check out this nifty microscale aircraft which has, as said in the comments, a great, satellite-like feel to it, and this quadruped walker that was inspired by Fredoichi's walkers.


Off_Route posted this utterly amazing vehicle. Everything from the shaping, to the slick yellow stripe on this is wonderfully crafted - and if you're wondering, it opens up to reveal a cockpit. Off_Route is new to Flickr, be sure to check out his no-less-amazing WOLVERINE Support Vehicle, and MASSASAUGA Drone Cycle.

Street signs have other uses.....

Heavy Battle Robot, originally uploaded by Robiwan_Kenobi.

I had a hard time believing that Robiwan_Kenobi's newest mecha was his first. The flow of the parts and the complexity of the structure is clever with many interesting details. What's more, the frame consists mainly of Technic elements, which is amazing given the smoothness of the build. This is due mainly to the road sign and flag elements that he liberally utilized through out the body. With a few Bionicle elements and some Knights Kingdom shield bits to top it off, the mech exceeds being merely "nifty". Check it out!

O.S.O Attack Class Space Fighter

This "Oh So" awesome ship by Bio Tech is a shining example of what Bionicles can do - make crazy cool space ships. Inspired by our own contributor - Joe aka [Dablackcat] - this ship was made for the "Bionicle Without the Bionicle" group challenge.

Talk About Revamp!

Space Pirate Speeder "Renegade", originally uploaded by Mentalspagat.

Flickr User Mentalspagat decided to improve the SPIII Hyperspeed Pursuit set, and improve it he did. Excellent sticker application combined with a gritty, blocky appearance make this vehicle a perfect getaway spaceship.

But every villain has the cops hot on their tail, so he built this Space Police "Piecemaker" to go along with it. The amazing color scheme and NPU on the blue cement drums look amazing, and make this an excellent interpretation of the Space Police theme.

Mecha galore!

IMG_2464, originally uploaded by hunabkru.

Since we blogged him back in January, the photostream of Flickr builder hunabkru has been spilling forth a large number of impressive Mecha. His most recent one (featured above) has possibly the largest amount of weapons and attachments that I have seen for a mech so far. At the rate he has been posting, more beauties may be on the way. Keep an eye on his stream!

Flying cats

kv_draugaer utilizes some pretty nifty techniques in his version of a f-14 Tomcat. The usage of the 2 x 2 Rounds for the cockpit and side-ways oriented brick structure. Check out his stream for other great creations including his YF-20 Vic Viper
