According to Nelson's MOC Thanksgiving guests, "The Drummite ambassadors pick the wrong day to visit the Earth." Happy Turkey Day, all.

Back to work!

A couple of days ago I blogged on the most recent Lowlug MMM. Second place finisher Mahjqa has posted his Back to work! on Flickr.

Back 2 Blogging

The members of Lowlug just finished their most recent MiniMocMadness contest, with the theme Back2School/Back2Work. Unfortunately I can't directly link to images from their site, and neither the winning entry, Stanley Efu's Debiteuren/Crediteuren, or the runner up, Back To Work!, and I cannot find those entries on some linkable site like Brickshelf or Flickr. So you'll have to go to the contest page to see these and all of the entries. Here, though, are Aliencat's entries.

Colossal Castle Contest time!

It's time for the annual Colossal Castle Contest. The admins of Classic-Castle invite all LEGO fans to come try their hand at a castle-themed creation and win fabulous prizes. Of particular interest to readers of this blog is the vignette category. You can be sure that I'll report on the various entries here. Since I'm a judge in the contest I won't make any particular comments on those entries until after the contest is over.

The Happening

I actually fell asleep during this movie, but I guess it was supposed to be scary enough to be on topic around Halloween. Joris.blok depicts Cloverfield.

Hot wheels

Bladewood made this at my desk vig. It's particularly cool that she included instructions for that great wheelchair.

But which one is Tweedle Dum?

I loved the caption on Pepa Quin's Election Time:
"I say my opponent's 3% tax hike goes too far!"
"And I say my opponent's 3% tax hike doesn't go far enough!"
BTW, this is reminiscent of Nathan Wells' Debate.

Bond Market

Hmm, I'm not sure which of these is new, but Mitch Hiveley's James Bond vigs recently popped up, and as it's been three years since I noted them, they're great to put up even if they're old. Check out Goldfinger and From Russia with Love.

I always love the trophies at the various fan fests. They're a great opportunity to make either a vig or a microscale MOC to fit the category being judged. A couple of the trophies at BrickCon included the one for Best CC City Wall, won by Thomas Wunz and the one for Best Castle Water MOC (won by who?). Both of these were built by JoshWedin, aka Floodllama.

Anonymous BrickCon Vigs

Two vigs from BrickCon. I'm guessing these are by Chris Wunz?
-Edit- Ah, yes. Chris used a series of vigs as wedding cake toppers. Very cool.
