Who says the end of civilization has to be totally drab? Dave DeGobbi’s massive eco-punk crawler city brightens up the post-apocalypse, looking like a Mardi Gras float designed by Master Blaster himself. Degobbi’s epic LEGO sculpture isn’t just some pretty colossus – it has a history, too. Here’s DeGobbi’s description of his crawler town: Crawler town roams the barren wastes of a post steam-punk world after cataclysmic climate change do to excessive coal use.
When I was a younger, I used to live, sleep, and breathe Lego’s. Now that I am older, I still have all of the pieces that I made, but I am constantly drawn to really amazing creations that truly talented Lego-maniacs make. I chose three great Lego artists from Flickr to showcase here. I highly recommend checking out their entire work on their respective pages. Feel free to leave comments with links to other great Lego works.
Lego constructions made out of Lego Technic don’t come much more technical than Spanish Lego artist Sheepo’s 1/8 scale Bugatti Veyron. Sheepo’s masterpiece includes a fully functioning seven-speed transmission (that also includes reverse), brakes, independent suspension and retractable roof and rear spoiler. Oh, and it drives too.
An Odyssey Begins I first saw a Lego Imperial Star Destroyer at the Power House Museum during the Star Wars Magic of Myth exhibition. Of course I immediately wanted one. But it would take nearly two years before the dream became a reality. After much drooling over sets that went on ebay, I finally took the plunge on a buy-it-now set.
