Old Rogue

Over the past few months I've bookmarked Rogue Bantha several times. I think I've blogged a few MOCs out of these galleries, but there's just too much there for me to get it all. So let's just put a few favorites in this post and then I'll move forward with newer stuff as it appears. Most recently, he's posted some instructions. In October he updated his Acclamator. Around the same time he updated his Trade Federation vehicles, I think with the droid carriers. How did I miss blogging his Rep1 battle, especially check out that little detail with the ice cream. Anyone with even a passing interest in Star Wars micros should peruse his Flickr or Brickshelf.

Hover Wars!

It looks like Nnenn has created his own micro wargame, Hover Wars. He's got two teams of hover tanks, each with rules about how they move and fight, and a ruined landscape for them to move in. It doesn't look like he's posted an overall set of rules yet. These are also on Flickr, where you can see some of the discussion.

Trophies

Here are trophies from several past fests that use microscale to good effect.

From BrickCon 08, check out the best train trophy in the back left (anyone know the builder and winner?).


From BrickCon 07, see the best area layout trophy in the second row (again, could someone identify the builder and the winner?).


Aaron Sneary made these space trophies for either NWBrickCon 04 or 05. If someone knows who won these, Aaron would be interested in learning, as he was unable to attend.

Water, water everywhere

SlyOwl posted The Adventure Ends. I love that micro boat in the distance. That's simple enough that you could make a whole armada of these.

Space down under

Paul Paulch showed off some microspace goodness at Brickvention. Only a couple of these are on his Brickshelf gallery, and those are fairly old. Does anyone know if he is posting somewhere else now (Flickr, MOCpages, personal site, etc.)?

A little late

I missed this before, but back on Christmas Eve Bodo Elsel posted Santa Claus. He's also got a cute little fighter, the Starlite2.

Life on the 405

I didn't actually realize this was microscale when I saw the thumbnail on Flickr, but then saw it again on Lego Diem. Monsterbrick has a great series of cars. Not all of these are in the traffic jam, but he includes a number of famous vehicles as well.

Very Ferry

Voyagetom-01 revamped the old ferry line with his Cruiseferry. These even open up so trucks can roll aboard.

Hangar

Rogue Bantha made this great little Hangar for his Republic ships. Take special note of that little ladder piece using grilled cheese slopes - brilliant parts usage.

Neuschwanstiny

The Children's Museum of Indianapolis is hosting an exhibit called LEGO Castle Adventure. They've got models large and small, including this rendition of Neuschwanstein (photo by Cindatree). There are a lot more photos in this Gallery by Blackbear88.
Edit: This castle was built by Erik Varszegi, a Master Builder at the LEGO USA headquarters.

Innovative parts use

Aaron Sneary was once challenged to use the old Star Wars Mini packaging, which had the impression of a 2x4 brick, in a MOC. He came up with this moonbase.

I have found it!

The truth is tiny

Rh1985moc made the FBI headquarters. He's also got Mulder's office at fig scale. Thanks to Dan of Fascinating LEGO Model of the Day for the heads-up.

Frigate

Check out Rogue Bantha's latest Star Wars micro masterpiece, the Republic Frigate.

It's all fun and games until someone puts a teeny tiny eye out

A couple of board games using micro. Antonella made a version of the game Cathedral (other versions by Aaron Sneary, Jason Spears and Gary Thomas). Nnenn made this chess set. A while ago Suzanne Rich made this Settlers of Cataan with some nice micro techniques. Several of these board games, and others, were referenced in this Classic-Castle thread.

Outrider

I'm not really an EU kind of guy, but even I recognize Rogue Bantha's Outrider. It looks nice alongside his Millenium Falcon.

Perfect for mini-golf

I was just looking through Erik Smit's photostream (for a VignetteBricks post) and saw two really nice microscale MOCs, his windmill and Avatar ship.

Minnesota monuments

A series of micro MOCs were on display at a recent TwinLUG meeting. I wonder if these will be incorporated into their growing group micro city? At least the first two of these are by Tom __?__. Could someone fully identify the builders?

Edit: These were all by Tom Anderson. I guess they had a little contest to build the Minnesota State Capital and Cathedral of St Paul at the last TwinLug meeting. These guys have the coolest micro collaboration - I know I've blogged it before but will have to do a much more extensive post sometime soon.
