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....

This base makes M-Tron even cooler!

How can you not love this epic build from Blake Foster? The four years he spent building it were clearly not wasted at all, as this beauty is absolute perfection. I know this has been blogged elsewhere, but some things are so incredible that they deserve to be recognised just that little bit more. Oh, I almost forgot: check out the accompanying video for more awesomeness.

You cannot pass!

Leonardo Da Brick built this epic reconstruction of the confrontation at Khazad-dum for the MELO. This rockwork should inspire us all, it's truly incredible. I also love the way he made the Balrog tumbling into the abyss. Also mighty thanks to the great J.R.R. Tolkien for writing such an epic scene in his books.

The City of Dale

Amazing builder Disco86 built this incredible microscale version of the City of Dale from the Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug for an Iron Builder match featuring this part.

And then there were four...

As you may have noticed, we've been a bit lazy about the whole blogging thing over the last couple of months. There are reasons for this, but Ian, Nacho and I decided that it would help to bring in a new member of the team. Introducing...Jackson Salyers, also known as Jackson of Garheim on Flickr. Another member of the Lands of Roawia roleplaying game, hopefully he'll help us get back to our old blogging spree. MOCs wait for no man!
