    One reasons I have picked the Revenge from this week's new projects is its excellent presentation: fun to look at, great background, eye catching "post production" elements. These factors really help the project stand out from the other spaceships on Ideas and sets a great example for the production value you should shoot for. The other reason I picked it is because I love what it represents. I know that this kind of thing does not qualitatively appeal to the FOL community as a whole but the Revenge is part of the Galaxy Command MOC series on Ideas. Galaxy Command (GC) is a…

    Eli Willsea and Grant Davis built this incredible Pirate scene for BrickCon this year. All their hard work paid off as they took home the trophy for Best Pirate creation. The layout is loaded with fun details. But the best part of it is a functional waterfall that “flows” with bricks. I was very glad that they got that working. It’s a very cool and unusual feature! Check out this time-lapse video to see how they built it and to see the waterfall in action.

    Oddly perhaps, one of the things I enjoyed most about the Maschinen Krieger models I built myself a couple years ago was not the hardsuits and vehicles themselves but the little bases I made to display them. Matthew Oh takes this to a whole new level with the highly detailed ruins with which he surrounds his SAFS “Wolverine” hardsuit. Many LEGO builders take our inspiration for Ma.K models from the creations of plastic modelers both working with the original kits and scratch-building in the Ma.K universe inspired by nothing more than their imagination. The cross-section profile of…

Today they shared a great shot from their studio, which shows one of their sculptors, Kyle Windrix, working on a 1/4 Scale Big Chap Alien. NECA says the figure is due sometime in 2015.

    My LEGO gas station is now on display at the LEGO store in Pleasanton, California at the Stoneridge Mall. I built it in 2012 and first showed it at Bricks by the Bay, but never posted a blog entry about it until now. This creation started when I saw a photoshopped image on Facebook of a gas station with the prices changed to “ARM,” “LEG,” and “BOTH,” with the ubiquitous “9/10″ after each. When I saw that, I knew I had to build a LEGO gas station just so I could make that sign. It’s appeared in several of the BayLTC and BayLUG shows since…

    The world of LEGO trains can be rather frustrating for the adult hobbyist. Here’s a quick primer for those who are interested in getting into this part of the LEGO hobby. (This is adapted from a comment I made on Facebook in response to someone who was just getting into LEGO trains in 2014.) LEGO has made a few different train systems over the years: 4.5 volt battery trains in the 1960s and 70s used plastic track that you had to build – blue rail pieces connected to 2×8 plates to make the tracks. 12 volt powered trains, which I believe were only sold in Europe in the 1970s,…

But this year my trip to BrickCon was a part of an extended vacation which included my trip to the LEGO Fan Weekend 2014, Skærbæk Denmark. After my travels in Denmark and Germany, I flew to Seattle from Frankfurt, with a layover in Houston – not the most direct way of getting there by any stretch, but that’s what happens when you redeem frequent flyer miles for a Saver Award. It also didn’t help that I was really sick the whole way. I’d been taking Sudafed…

I say “final” because it is the last time that it is being run by the LEGO company, but the local LEGO fans will be taking over running it as of next year, so the event will continue. However it was my first time there and I had a great time! My photos have been posted on Flickr, so go check out all the great MOCs (My Own Creations) that were on display. I was the only one there from North America, but I didn’t bring anything to show. There was a good…

  • Last Day for LEGO Double VIP Points

    Allen "Tormentalous" Tran
    30 Oct 2014 | 9:17 pm
    It’s midnight on the east coast and that means that there’s only one day left for Double VIP Points at LEGO Stores and on Shop@Home. This is also the last day to get the free exclusive LEGO Creator Toy Workshop (40106) with purchases of $99 or more. Unfortunately, the Toy Workshop is already out of stock on S@H but the LEGO Stores may still have some left. You may want to call them and double check to make sure they have them to give out.

  • LEGO Star Wars AT-AT (75054) Sale on Amazon

    Amazon has a pretty good deal for the fairly new LEGO Star Wars AT-AT (75054) for $89.91 which is more than $20 (18%) off the retail price of $109.99. The set is also eligible for free shipping with Amazon Prime. Christmas is coming real soon so this is a great set to get early at a very nice price as you probably won’t it this low again for a while when the deal expires. Update: Sorry folks, it’s back up to $99.97 which is still 9% off. The post LEGO Star Wars AT-AT (75054) Sale on Amazon appeared first on The Brick Fan.

  • New Book!

    admin
    15 Oct 2014 | 12:49 pm
    I am happy to announce that on October 30th, my new book The Art of the Brick: A Life in LEGO® will be available. When I put together my first book some years ago it was for the purpose of connecting with exhibition guests who had seen my work, but maybe were too shy to ask questions. So when I was asked to pen a larger, more in-depth book I wasn’t sure where to even begin. Somewhere during the late hours of many evenings, I found myself doing the same thing as when I am creating a sculpture. But this time, instead of building artworks, I was building a book, chapter by chapter. As with…
  • Hugman in the Park

    Not long ago, I asked guests to my exhibition The Art of the Brick at Discovery Times Square to leave a little piece of themselves with me by signing an individual brick as they exited. In turn, I promised to sculpt a piece of artwork that represented a greater sense of community. For weeks I poured over thousands of multi-colored recycled bricks, stopping to read fun messages along the way, signatures that included handles, hashtags and hometown countries far from New York City. I used over fifty thousand of these bricks to create three larger than life Hugman sculptures to be installed at…
  • LEGO Gaga

    I have collaborated with amazing artists over the years: Jim Lee, Dean West, and you could even count Jonathan Coulton. So it was fun when Lady Gaga approached me about collaborating on her next music video. Gaga’s latest album, ARTPOP, has a lot to do with her life of being caught between both the world of art and the world of pop culture. This resonated with me since I am often creating pop culture references out of a child’s toy and presenting it as art. One of the main themes we discussed was about making art accessible. And one of the main reasons I use LEGO bricks is to make…
  • Join the Art Revolution

    I am pleased to be announcing a project that has been very close to my heart and a big driving force for me as an individual and artist – the formation of a nonprofit giving organization called the Art Revolution Foundation. Art Revolution’s mission is to raise awareness and funds to put art supplies in kids’ hands, to fund programs that put arts education back into America’s schools and to support organizations that conduct art therapy for the ill and elderly. Its key message, “art is not optional,” is driven by the alarming devaluation of the arts in today’s schools and…

    No better way to kick off the opening of The Art of the Brick in Brussels than this spectacular light show. It was also fun to stumble upon The Art of the Brick poster at the world’s most famous French fry stand at Friterie Maison Antoine. In case you were wondering…the fries were delicious! The Art of the Brick is now on display at the Stock Exchange of Brussels (La Bourse de Bruxelles – Place de la Bourse 1 – 1000 Bruxelles) until April 21st, 2014. More information about attending this exhibit can be found here.
