A new trailer has been released for the LEGO Minifigures Online game, highlighting the medieval world adventure. The game is about to enter the open beta phase, so you can sign up to play it very soon. Watch the video and discuss it in our forum.
It is a sad day in Solitude - their lord has died and left no heir. Michal Herbolt, aka Gearcs, set this scene in a border stronghold of the Arboria Empire. You can see all of Michal's MOCs in his Flickr stream and then discuss it in our forum
Tyler, aka the Deathly Halliwell, built this great Green Dragon bust. He's planning on bringing it to BrickWorld, so if you're going there you can see it in the brick. If not, you can see this dragon, as well as all of Tyler's other MOCs, in his Flickr stream and then discuss it in our forum.
Another set from the 2012 run of Lord of the Rings sets. This set might have been more properly named The Chamber of Mazarbul as it is focused on the battle between the company of the Ring and the orcs of Moria that takes place around Balin's tomb. This set includes four of the nine heroes, two Moria orcs, and the cave troll. It also includes lots of pieces of the chamber, many weapons, and a few action features.
Another set from the first wave of Lord of the Rings sets, this one includes two Nazgul, Strider, Merry, and Frodo (with a different torso than in the Gandalf Arrives set) bearing the Ring. The hill is built up of bricks and opens up to reveal a chamber. Geeky detail - the stand inside that chamber once held a Palantir back in the days when this wasn't just a ruin and instead was the fortress of Amon Súl.
I usually try not to feature the same builders so close together, but when I saw this this morning I just had to. I think we can crown the king and queen of NPU based on Sean And Steph Mayo (aka Siercon and Coral) and their Sun Salamander. This is just one of their MOCs for the Iron Builder competition based on the rounded 1x2 slope in yellow. Check out this and all of their work in their Flickr stream and then discuss it in our forum.
Dave Ware designed this mosaic of Sam Gamgee. Attendees of the recent Calgary Expo 2014 put together 6x6 squares, which were then assembled into the whole mosaic. It was even signed by Sean Astin, Sam himself, who was at the Expo. Check out all of Dave's work on his site BrickWares.com or in his Flickr stream, and then discuss it in our forum.
Gandalf arrives was one of the first sets to include the new articulated horse. It also included the Gandalf and Frodo figs, a small cart, some fireworks for the Long-Expected Party, and a carrot, just in case Gandalf got a little peckish.
Congratulations to Buurli for winning the Taste the Rainblow contest with his Rainbow Castle! See the announcement, including runners up and special prize, and congratulate the contestents in our forum.
Lord Tarris has been working for a long time on an amazing Cathedral. It's taking so long because, in addition to being a huge project, he's adding all kinds of careful details. He's recently made this cupola that goes on top of his Baptiserium. You can see the construction technique via WIP and alternate views, and discuss the MOC in our forum. All of Lord_Tarris' work can be seen in his Flickr stream.
