The "Look at this!" Bricks Thread

Postby ikensall » Sat Aug 30, 2014 3:47 pm

Right then, I hereby open this thread; in which you are to share with us all of those lego builds from the wider community that you wouldn't otherwise have deemed quite special enough for its own thread. If it's so awesome that you would've given it it's own thread anyway than go ahead and make a new topic, here is where you put all those slightly impresive things you come across browsing Flickr/Mocpages/Brickshelf/Dropbox(if you're Tzan).
I commence with an example of what I'm hoping will make up the majority of content here; a picture of something cool, and a link to where it came from, where much more awesomeness can be found.

ImageSmall Starfighter – Step 1 by nolnet, on Flickr
This box turns into a starfighter, (look at the subsequent pictures in the photostream).

Aside from Lego, things such as pictures which provide inspiration are also applicable to this thread, but be mindful of whether or not it's better suited to the "Greater Anschluss of gif, image and youtube republics."  thread.

TL;DR: Post lego things that you've seen that look cool, but don't treat this as a replacement for all other threads in the Bricks forum.

SHIIEEEET! Although I'm not into that jappy crap, these pics make me want to build an actual EVA-Unit (at least at the same scale as the first pic).

Nice stuff all round, this is better than I expected when I first opened the topic.

I've since dug up this picture:

I think railtanks are the only killing machine Brikwars really lacks.

I could always try to build Mami's Super Death Rail-Tank from Rebellion...

I can think of a few things we still need more of but, yeah, since I love trains so damn much, railtank would be my first choice also.

Not true, my freind has a Maersk railtank. Which I destroyed turn 2 with lots of SN dice.

There have even been a couple forum battles with railtank train chases.

Keep rocking this thread though, loving the pics so far.

I remembered this guy and thought he was in need of a mention, he builds awesome (digitally rendered) stuff, from microspace to chunky tanks.

Check out the rest of his pictures, there's a lot of variation; I could've filled this post with loads more of his pictures without having two things that looked alike
