I have hesitated to get into Lego Dimensions because I’ve heard lots of people complain about getting ripped off by Disney Infinity. I don’t want to get caught in a similar situation. But this was hard to resist.
I’m going to make my minifigs live here:
In honor of the 25th anniversary of Batman (1989), I busted out the LEGOs and finished this up just before midnight. I’m pretty pleased with the result.Continue reading “Mini LEGO 1989 Batmobile”
Harold Allen Ramis, November 21, 1944 – February 24, 2014
Someone accidentally challenged me to make the ugliest Christmas tree in the world. And to that challenge, like Icarus, I rose. Click the pic to watch the birth of a legend, and mix up a festive Christmas cocktail to boot!Continue reading “The Ugliest Christmas Tree In The World”
Tomorrow is my birthday. This costs $100. If just 20 of you put in $5 each, we could make this happen. We could put this glorious ’80s style LEGO spaceship into the hands of a young man who desperately wants a miracle. You can change a life. For just $5, you can change the world. The power is in YOUR hands. Just open your hearts and give!Continue reading “Chris’s Shameless Birthday Postathon”
Greetings, programs! This may be old news to those of you who keep a close eye on the new arrivals section of your local comic book store, but Marvel has released a series of collectors’ covers in honor of TRON: Legacy. Come on in and check ’em out.
There’s no easy way to draw attention to one’s own creations without sounding at least a little like a pompous ass, so instead of trying to avoid it I’m just gonna dive in headlong. HEY, EVERYBODY, LOOKY WHAT I MADE!!
Yep, it’s Lego Orthanc. Well, really I should call it Mega Orthanc, since easily 99% of this is made from the far-superior-for-castle-building Mega Bloks Dragon Wars bricks. To give you a sense of scale, I’ve got 10 foot ceilings, but it’s standing on an 18 inch tall table. I’d ballpark it to be in the seven to seven and a half foot range.
Sci-Fi Girl and I built this a couple of years ago and it’s been smashed up in a big Rubbermaid bin for a long time. I finally got it back together in something very much like its original form. The pics aren’t that great, so just look at them and then sprinkle on about 30% more awesomeness in your head. That’s what it looks like in real life. Sprinkles of awesomeness.
Click the pic for a closeup of the top. If you look really closely, you can see the tiny Gandalf trapped up there. Only don’t look too hard because I’m 100% lying. The only thing up there is dust.
