Personal ProjectsSamurai Jack
This is another fine collaboration between DarthKy and Myself. Samuriai Jack is simply put one of the greatest action shows to have ever existed, period.
I could tell you the back story, but, believe me, you will enjoy this telling of it much better. If you have Netflix, you can stream the second season.
Inspector Spacetime was a lot of fun to work on. For those not in on the "joke" Inspector Spacetime is a fictional show. To clarify that I mean, it is a show that exists within the show "Community."
Obviously it is a spoof on Doctor Who. It is fascinating to see how fans of a concept will just take it and run as far afield as they can. References to Inspector Spacetime can be found all over the place, and now I have added my little piece to this web of geekery.
As a final note I will add, the top of this phone booth was a real challenge. You can't see it from the outside but there is quite a bit of snotting going on there.
Pick of the WeekMicro Airliners
What an amazing collection. This set would be a great introduction to microbuilding. It would help showcase how slight variations in parts and configuration can really bring out different personalities in a build.
Additionally, I think every youth who touches LEGO eventually builds a plane about this size with basic bricks, not this detail of course, but it in a clever transition. Showcasing how more specialized bricks can bring out character and defining qualities.
1949 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible
The grill alone on this deserves special recognition. This build is a tremendous feat of SNOT work and the ability of the doors, hood and trunk to open add to this. I really dig all the details in the console.
One thing. I know that for some builders, color is a personal choice, and for others it is about part availability. I realize the quarter dome parts don't come in very many color options, but I think this car would look amazing in Black, or one of the dark variants of blue, red, or green.
A3 Submarine Project
Wow, just, WOW! The greeble work is amazing, the details are superb. This looks like an impressive, vehicle ready to take on the depths of the ocean.
The only reason I didn't make it the pick of the week is because the very first LEGO Cuusoo set was a Submarine of a similar concept if not actual LEGO implementation. Does this seem pretty arbitrary? Sure, but it comes down to these factors when I am comparing the apples and oranges that Ideas has to offer.
Gravity Falls - Mystery Shack
I love Gravity Falls, probably my favorite show on television right now. Very well done recreation of the Mystery Shack.
Extremely well done MOC sure to jump start the memories of the more mature gamers.
NotablesEmmet's Apartment from The LEGO Movie
I don't understand where Ideas is drawing the line between posting a photo of someone else's work OR copying someone else's work and posting.
