Bucket Loader-Zombiefied!

Lego Junkie made this beautiful bucket loader.  I love all the details he packed into it, such as the hydraulics, the headlights, and the railing.

And as if that wasn't good enough, he zombiefied it!

Desert Tower

Mark of Falworth, a regular here, brings us this neat little tower for the Lands of Roawia Brawling Tournament. The category for this round is "Best Fortication", and he's accomplished a great watchtower packed with some beautiful Mediterranean architecture, eye-catching coloring, and a fantastic interior.

Back to the base!

This Star Wars base on Naboo, by TWC Productions, has a lot of great features. I love how vibrant the sea looks, and there's some stellar rockwork going on too. The three main base structures are designed very well indeed, making this stand out among the many, many Star Wars bases floating around the internet.

So many colours!

eldeeem has posted this really sweet spaceship, with a very striking colour scheme. The curved wings flow well, but I especially love the lime-green highlights, many of which look to be stickers, or at least printed bricks. I for one hope to see many more interesting ship designs like this one.

The Battle Rages On!

The Iron Builder between Disco86 and Matt De Lanoy (Pepa Quin) rages on, with both builders making great use of the seed part.

Silver Blade

LEGO DOU Moko brings us SIlver Blade, the 'bot to rule all bots.  The use of various Bionicle masks and weapons to give this boss of a robot a sleek, muscled look is pure genius. This is definitely the kind of guy I want to have on my side.

History built right!

There have been a fair few historically-accurate creations built recently, but not many are as good as this one. Gary Brooks had this beast ready just in time for BrickFair VA, but clearly a lot of time, effort - and not least money! - went into it. It depicts the Battle of Rorke's Drift, made famous by the 1964 film Zulu, though it is based not on what the film shows but what actually happened on that day in 1879. Gary has put together a very interesting account in the description on Flickr, so make sure that you read it. As for the MOC, well...what a beast! The olive-green leaves on the ground make it look like it really is in the South African wilds. The scale is incredible....
