Missing person - HeatherLEGOGirl

If you're a regular reader of the variety of major LEGO blogs out there, you've already seen this, but I'm passing it along on the theory that at least some of my readers come from outside the hobbyist community. Heather Braaten, who you may know on various online forums as HeatherLEGOGirl, has been missing for the past week. She was last seen in Seattle, Washington. If you see Heather, or know anything of her whereabouts, please contact Lino Martins at linotopia AT hotmail DOT com , as he is in close touch with Heather's family, or directly contact the Seattle police department. Or use any of the contact information on the flyer below.

Who you gonna call?

The MOCathalon category 'Ghost Hunters' asks builders to take on the recent rash of reality shows (what's next, minifigs digging through storage lockers to find priceless antiques?). Rinse Jan built haunted hallway.

That'll teach you to kiss your brother "for luck"

In the MOCathalon category 'alternate Star Wars', Shannon Ocean has Luke and Leia go splat. Perhaps she should have kissed a wookie instead.

The dog ate my MOCathalon entry

Another MOCathalon category is 'the dog ate my homework', challenging builders to illustrate a lame excuse. Invisible Mime's Dog ate my homework sets off a long story akin to Bill and Ted, while in Cam M.'s A Dog Ate my Homewaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! the teacher has decided to stop putting up with these excuses.

It's time for MOCathalon, and a lot of the entries are vigs or bignettes. Interestingly, Lincoln's assassination has already shown up in two different categories. In the Ars Historica category (calling for a historical scene) Alex Mack made Lincoln's Assasination, and in the Ides of March category (calling for a conspiracy), Christopher Baldacci made Half Mast, a multi-tiered bignette showing the assassinations of US Presidents Kennedy, McKinley and Lincoln.

Devil's Snare

There just aren't enough Harry Potter builds out there, which is kind of surprising given the official theme and the popularity of the source material. Carson Hart made Devil's Snare from book one. It's so cool that he built his own Fluffy rather than simply buying the official version.
