When One Forgets To Check Brickshelf: A cautionary tale.

There once was a little boy,
who blogged about a building toy.
he forgot to check Brickshelf,
and therefore deprived himself
Of Izzo's latest Mech.
So he said what the heck,
I'll blog it.

So that's what I'm doing. As my little on-the-spot poem said, Izzo has a new mech. Two, actually. Excellent inspiration for my current MOC project.

"28" is really cool, I love the gun. Also the purple. The feet are pretty nice too.

"29" is my favorite of the two. Wow. the bike... just wow.

As usual, pics = links.

The use of those elephant/dinosaur/whatever pieces on the shoulders in the second one is great.

Oh, that's what those were! I couldn't figure it out (I don't have any of them...)

These are both, as usual, completely wonderful. I myself prefer No. 28, though 29 does have some nice parts usage.

I think I'll coin "Izzo" and "Moko" as synonyms for "beautiful, fantastic design" and "ingenious, awesome design," respectively.

These are so Izzo.

Oh, and "Nannan" for "disturbingly awesome."

;)

Jacob
Occasional driving force of the blog, self-proclaimed Lukas fanboy, and aspiring engineer, Jacob spends too much time building LEGO, not enough time practicing piano, and not nearly enough time doing school. He also enjoys long sentences. In the instance of blogging, he believes in quantity over quality, wherever quantity can be maintained.
Mike
One of the cofounders of YSAB, and the founder of YSA, Observing Mike actually being productive is a rare occasion. Mike enjoys making outlandish claims in relation to actually building, pretending he's actually sorting his collection, and making excuses for why he hasn't photographed his MOCs. In his free time he enjoys learning CSS from Spook, photography and poking badgers with spoons.
Dean
Occasional builder, occasional blogger, and full-time procrastinator. That's really the only way to describe Dean. He rarely gets anything done, but is a very active lurker. He's probably seen and liked your MOC, but just forgot he had a blog.
Erik
Erik is still a teenager.
Lukas
Lukas is tall, blond, mildly OCD, and doesn't build nearly enough as he would like to, thanks to school. He has a webpage.
Spook (Tim)
The resident codemonkey and graphics person. If something isn't working correctly, it's probably his fault. Fitting to his name, he doesn't post often, but someone has to do this stuff too, right? Spook does build with laygoes, and has his own blog as well.
