Cuusoo of the Day: 2012.05.20

Modular Death Star

by Runar

This is a very impressive recreation of the Death Star interior.  Runar is able to blend the repeating nature of the build with nuances that break up the tedium.  Usually I shy away from MOCs with what must be a staggering part count, but the artistry of this set cannot be ignored. 

Honorable Mention

the Rhinoceros by Theo Jansen

by kvanb

This is a MOC based directly on Theo Jansen's Rhinoceros.  

Theo Jansen creates mobile art pieces called Strandbeests.  They use wind energy, and sometimes human energy, to create a walking effect.  It appears that this MOC is a direct recreation of the Rhinoceros.
