Flickr user buildingxyz has a gallery of pictures with a huge microscale city, I quote, "Imaginary city made of LEGO bricks. Presented in Seoul, South Korea in December 2007." Slightly old though these photos may be, they were only just uploaded, and to the best of my knowledge this blog has not covered this before. Whatever the story is behind this, this city is truly a cool, and huge, microMoc.

How small can you build a SW ship and have it still be recognizable. I once made some tiny TIEs. Moosebot has thrown down the gauntlet by claiming he has the smallest ever Republic Gunship. Can anyone rise to the challenge and go smaller?

Results are in over at the Bad Day for Micropolis contest. The Bad Day category was taken by Roguebantha's Sad Day. Basic Module category was won by Vito's Twin Tower Hotel. Double category by Rook's Repair shop and landing port, and the Doubleplusgood category by Brian Kasprzyk's Independance Day. BTW, thanks to Model Building Secrets for the heads-up. Check out all of the entries, they were awesome. I'm going to have to go back and highlight more of these.

I would like to invite all fellow Micro Legos Fans who are going to BrickFair '09 to a large micro colaborative that I am setting up with a few of my close friends. We will be building a large Micropolis (hopefully with modules from many different people), as well as a large micro war, with different factions being created by different people. If you are interested in contributing please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Flickr user EdgeDonkey built this crafty little ship, The Aztec Gold. It is a most inventive use of the inca headdress piece. The look really conveys a sense of wings spread in flight.
Edit: As I was recently informed, edgedonkey is actually Mac Reddin, one of the new posters here at Microbricks. I am also, quite obviously, a newcomer to this blog myself.

I've previously griped that the first offerings in the LEGO Architecture line by Adam Reed Tucker of Brickstructures were fairly simple models. While they were good souvenir shop pieces for the general public, an AFOL could easily reproduce them from their existing collections just by seeing the photo. The same cannot be said of the next two sets, recently announced by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, the iconic Fallingwater and Guggenheim. These are just beautiful. I take back everything I said before. Via the Brothers Brick. Not sure when these will be for sale, but I definitely want these.

I've noted these sets before, but nori-gallery has comprehensive pictures of the LEGO Architecture sets designed by Adam Reed Tucker, including box art, the included pamphlets, parts included and completed models: Sears Tower, John Hancock Center, Empire State Building and Space Needle.

Eti gives us an entry for Reasonably Clever's Bad Day for Micropolis contest with a meaning. In his micro block he shows old houses being torn down for Evilcorp's newest office building.
I really like that parking lot under Evilcorp's existing tower, and although small, those old houses look very rustic and atmospheric.
Koffiemoc's Micropolis build above, Clearhead Tower is leaving the neighbourhood was sadly too late to enter the contest, but I have to say I love the idea of this walking tower, and the architectural details in it.

Well, today is the last day for the Bad Day for Micropolis contest. So if you're building now, you'd better hurry up and get those pictures in. There are a ton of great entries, such as Vito's Twin Tower Hotel and Polywen's It came from BELOW!!!.
