Red Planet

As much as we love things with guns, and things that make others things go boom, it's nice to see a
builder return to the true roots of spacey science fiction. Exploration, and the expansion of humanity into the final frontier.


I'm gettin' all nostalgic.

Keep your Nnenn. I still remember when he showed up and everyone was like "What is this? Megablocks? Modded bricks?!" That's not the point. He's great and all, but I'm not here to blog his stuff. I'm blogging a couple of lovely spaceshippy thingies (technical term) built by people who have been around as long as I remember, and whose creations greatly inspired me as I was first getting into the online Lego community.

Dan Rubin checks in with the Hornet bomber:

Justin Vaughn has imaginatively dubbed this one the "orange fighter."


Multiple Tims

Tim Goddard (RogueBantha) brings us a great microscale M-tron themed freighter:

Tim Gould takes a break from trains and presents a cyberpunk flying machine:

It reminds me of the Naboo starfighter from the Phantom Menace, but cooler. If you are in a train mood though, check out Nathan Proudlove's subway train. It's lime!

And if you haven't taken note already, there's a building challenge in the starfighters group on flickr.



Contrary to what you may have heard on other channels,(with reputed ties to the Communist party) there is but one side to this heated debate. And that's the right side. Go pro-green, go pro FREEDOM.


On Patrol

Adrian Florea brings us a cool mecha, in his dynamic, angular building style.

It's dark blue, too.


Geoff knows the music.

Geoff Herndon, AKA Tekka Croe, has built a very nice ODST drop pod. The main reason this is the best one I've ever seen is that it's not a box: Geoff has actually given it some complex shaping. The second feature that stands out from many other Lego drop pods is that the doors hinge rather than just coming off.

As the next part of the quotation I used in the title goes, "time to dance." This is clearly applicable, because below is a video, and videos move, and people who are dancing move. Get it?

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.
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.
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 is still a teenager.
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.
