Sci-Fi Snail by Ian Spacek

Check out this awesome sci-fi snail be Ian Spacek. It's rare that you see LEGO snails larger than half and inch, so this type of creation is very fresh.
Big, blue, googly eyes, and an olive body. This whole creation is great. Good job, Ian.

See it on Mocpages.

The LEGO Movie Teaser Trailer

The first trailer for The LEGO Movie has just been released. I know many of us have been waiting a long time for LEGO to hit the big screen. And I don't think this disappoints.
The trailer is quite humorous. And those who know anything about LEGO will get a good chuckle from some of the "AFOL" jokes.
One thing I love is the animation. I expected it to be good. And it is! But I'm really happy how much the figures move like real minifigures. The limbs are much more stiff and less like jello.
Plus, there are some pretty big names in there: Will Ferrel, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, and quite a few others. 
The film hits theaters February 2014. I don't know if I can wait that long! What about you? Are you excited for the first theatrical LEGO film?

LEGO CUUSOO: Fall 2012 Review Results

While I was on my unintentional blogging hiatus, the LEGO CUUSOO Results were posted for the fall 2012 Review. If you haven't already found out, the Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Rover was the project chosen to be made into a set.
The LEGO CUUSOO blog posted an article explaining why this project was chosen over the other ones, and I think it'll do a much better job of helping you understand the results than I could do. So click the button below and find out the results of the Fall Review.

Wave Building by Joaquín Cantolla

This is a very awesome representation of the real Wave Building located in Vejle, Denmark. While I feel the creation could be a little more accurate to the original, I really have no complaints with it.
After all, it's probably better than I could do. And a great MOC is a great MOC no matter what it's supposed to be.

See it on Mocpages.

Medieval Living by The Expendable

Check out this cool creation by The Expendable over on Mocpages. I love the different shades of water and how realistic it looks.
The buildings are nicely detailed. Get a closer look at that cabin by clicking the link below.

I apologize for the lack of posting. I'll try to make it up.

LEGO CUUSOO: League of Legends of LEGO Sneaks up to 10,000

Apparently when I wasn't looking League of Legends of LEGO reached 10,000 supporters and snuck into the June 2013 LEGO CUUSOO review.
This should be a good set. I haven't played League of Legends, but I know it's very popular. LEGO can't resist to make more money off of a video game. Let's hope there are no licensing problems.
The June review is in the works. We should be seeing the results soon.

On a totally other note, this is post #400 on BrickEnd.
