Anubis Starfighter

(For starts: Wow it's been a long time since I've blogged something!) :x

This slick star fighter by Thrawnie caught my eye. The hunched cockpit reminds me of a vulture, and the wonderful angles on this beauty are really stunning. Bravo.

Remeber it's "big-boned", not fat....

Lego: T53 (Golem), originally uploaded by Kidgunsmoke.

....because Kidgunsmoke's powerful looking juggernaut looks like it could put some hurt on. Overall the lumbering, heavy-set feel is very effective and despite being scattered, the white/bley/orange lends itself to the model well. The legs are nicely constructed as well.

It looks pretty hungry......

Specimen 082 (main view), originally uploaded by -Disty-.

Lets hope for flickr builder Disty's sake that Specimen 082 has been fed recently. Having been in the works since November (of last year) at long last the project has finally been unveiled, and frankly I think it was worth the wait. Besides the monster, the cage is also quite fearsome, incorporating a pleasing repetition of bionicle & technic parts to form the body. The creature incorporates a pleasing combination of blue armor for the main parts of the body and rare purple krana & kratta to form the fleshy parts of the things body. All this paired with an orange eye makes for a pleasing color scheme. Check out the rest of the detail on his stream!

I Love Things That Move

When I first saw this walker by spacie 11, I was in love. But then I found out that it is motorized, and then I had to blog it. Amazing work.

PEHP Billboard

PEHP Billboard, originally uploaded by Xarquar.

I have always been a fan of clean lego creations and clean photography, and this billboard by Xarquar has both, I love the lettering and the orange and the photography. Well done!

From the sea to the skies

Thought we were gone didn't ya? Think again!

Today we at USB bring you this interesting steam-punk Pirate bi-copter from de-marco on flickr. The greebles and the feeling evoked by the canopies used for the cockpit are gratifying and evoke an air of "WWII era" aircraft. Check out his set for more detailed shots.

Thanks to my friend tbone_tbl for the tip!
