Fun-ettes

I've been away from blogging for a bit, but I'm coming back to a great development. SIMAFOL has come up with a series of what he calls Fun-ettes, or vigs with some action feature. He's got what looks like a WIP that brings together many vigs with scenes from the Star Wars movies. From ANH, the walls of the trash compactor close in on Han and Chewie as you turn a knob, and in a second vig we can see Ben Kenobi defeated by Vader, or so we all thought when we first saw the movie oh so many years ago.

Pellaeon uses the darkside takes puns to a very festive level:





I'm a sucker for puns. And the chrome storm trooper is a nice touch too.

Priorities

Minicoop gives us a vignette reminder to keep your priorities straight. I'm going to put the whole comic in here, since his flickr gallery presents them backwards...

Hero in a Half Shell

I am loving this piece of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle-related brickwork by bhanabrix.

So simple, using only a handful of bricks, yet hugely-effective. Lovely.

LEGO Book

DK Publishers recently released a boxed set: The LEGO Book, all about the hobby and another about minifigs (celebrating their 30th anniversary). There's not really anything specifically about vignettes, but in the last few pages of the book they show some fan creations, including Hippotam's Double Trouble, a previous winner from the Classic-Castle annual CCC contest, and Sachiko Akinaga's Goldfish Balloon, an entry into the annual ClickBrick 16x16 scene contest. Congratulations to both of these builders and all of those who were included.

Casino

1con21 has a number of scenes from a casino. The construction of the card table is really clever, and I chuckled at C3PO trying to go through the metal detector.

Pillage the Village 2

The Pillage the Village 2 contest is underway over at Classic-Pirates.com. The small category has a max size of 8x8, so we can expect to see pirate vigs like NewRight's Bye bye Brickbeard or Trubal's Quality time with friends.

Congratulations, Steve!

Steve Bishop and his wife just had a baby girl. Somehow he had time to commemorate her birth in vig form. Congratulations, Steve. Now go grab a few minutes of sleep, because in a couple of hours that little cry will be demanding food or diapers or just to be held.

A loaf of bread, a jug of wine and ... Ahh! Ants!

In Canadaclark's Ant Farm, a happy couple's picnic is being interrupted.

When you pull back, you can see that their choice of location was not ideal.

Via Bricks in suit.

Captain Morgan: Scourge of the Pond

This is a great 10 x 10 stud vignette by 2 Much Caffeine. The minifigs are great, the faces are absolutely perfect. However, my favorite parts are the awesome micro pirate ships.

Rebellion on Classic-Castle

Well, sort of. In case you have missed it Caylin over on Classic-Castle has hosted a MOC the Admins contest, the purpose of which was to mock one (or more) of the admins using a vignette. The deadline was yesterday and here are some of my favourites:

(Oh, and beware of excessive amounts of puns!)

Aliencat stealing Tony's precious food pieces:




Legolord. shows Troy going green:



Quickblade22 never really understood this rule against trolling:



Griffon pictures the skellies trying to log in:



And wunztwice watches Tony disappear into the age of steam:

Vittorio Milanes tells a familiar tale. He came out of his dark age a while ago and suddenly realized he had an adult's freedom to buy sets. And the madness began. Now he's trying to cut back on his purchases and plan them out, so he can get a few of the larger sets he really wants rather than spending a little here and a little there fairly often. So when he passes the LEGO aisle in the store, he has to remind himself Oh no, you won't!.
