Wollaton Hall A.K.A Wayne's Manor by Jorge Barros

This beautiful and massive MOC is built after the equally beautiful and massive Wollaton Hall, which was used as Wayne Manor in the Batman film The Dark Knight Rises.
Love the stone work on the walkway surrounding the fountain. But the building in itself is really well done. Click the link below to visit the page and read some history about the hall.

See it on Mocpages.

Lord of The Bobble Heads by Nathaniel Shields

Check out these hilarious Lord of the Rings bobble heads by Nathaniel Shields. Each one is great in its own way. I especially love Merry, Gandalf, and Boromir. Just wonderful idea. Now I want to see some Avengers bobble heads.

LEGO CUUSOO: 2nd Ghostbusters Project Reaches 10k

For the first time in LEGO CUUSOO history, two projects based on the same licensed property are in the same review. This should be quite interesting. If one of the projects does pass the review, which one will it be? I find it hard to believe  that LEGO would allow both projects to be made into sets. But LEGO could just scratch both of them and not have to make any tough decisions. I guess we'll have to wait to find out.

Battle for Droskyn Castle by Matthew Oh

Matthew Oh has established himself as a very good builder over on Mocpages. And this MOC is just one of the reasons why. This MOC has everything going for it. Strong, detailed castle walls? Check! Awesome siege weapons? Check! Pink flowers? Okay, let's not let this get out of control.
Check out this cool battle scene by clicking the link below.

LEGO CUUSOO: Poptropica: Dr. Hair's Lair Reaches 10,000 Supporters

CUUSOO projects are reaching 10,000 supporters faster than ever before. So far 3 in just 10 days. The newest project to reach this milestone is Poptropica: Dr. Hair's Lair. The set is based off the popular game that I have actually never played. If you play it, comment below and tell me if it's fun.
I'm really starting to agree with that rabbit in the bottom corner. LEGO + Poptropica does equal evil genius!

Prometheus by Mihai Marius Mihu

There's something about this little MOC. And I'm not quite sure what it is. I could stare at this one for a while. It's so delicate, yet so strong. Just look at it for a little bit. It's got a cool eagle. :)

LEGO CUUSOO: Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Breaks 10,000

Hot on the heels of the Faster Than Light project hitting 10,000 supporters, Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary has reached 10,000 as well.
This makes us all wonder about the first Ghostbusters project. What will happen to it when it does reach 10,000 supporters, and whether it'll even reach the mark since the other one has already. I have no doubt that it will make it, and if the 30th Anniversary project passes the review, I'm sure Ghostbusters will too.
What do you think about the 30th Anniversary project? Do you think it will pass the review?

The Council of Elrond by Disco 86

Check out this Rivendell MOC by Disco 86. I love the trees, and the flowers creeping over the wall. It's a great representation of the scene. And I like how all the characters are represented in their official minifigure form.

LEGO CUUSOO: FTL: Faster Than Light Hits 10,000 Supporters

CUUSOO has become the perfect site for LEGO fans. Go on anytime and you'll see hundreds of projects, many with thousands of supporters. It's a LEGO fan's dream! The ability to turn your model into a set (considering it passes the review, of course) is one most people embrace. And it shows.
Take this project for example. It's all micro ships. But with a video game behind it, it has become very popular. There are quite a few well designed ships on there. Which one is your favorite?  Mine is the Osprey. It reminds me of an X-wing. Maybe that's why I like it the best.

Exclusive Interview With Masashi Togami of Team BTTF

Most of you are aware of the newest LEGO CUUSOO set Back to the Future. But even less of you know who the man behind the model is. Who is he? Masashi Togami.
He's the founder of the LEGO CUUSOO Back to the Future Team. He's got quite a few models on CUUSOO now, and plenty more on the way.
I had the opportunity to get an interview with him over email. He let me know a little about his love for BTTF, his model design process, and he sent me some info and pictures of his upcoming models.
He's got some great stuff going on. You should definitely click the button below to read the interview. Or if you don't have the time now, read it later.
