Hold the line at Bleaker Street

That's the order in this scene by 2 Much Caffeine. I suspect this was made to feature the mechs, but IMO the building is the star of the show.

Airport

Here's Rakanishu's finished Micropolis Airport.

At first glance, it appears to be built at a larger scale, but this shot of the terminal should clear that up.

Well done.

Set news - Super Star Destroyer

This is probably everywhere by now, but I first saw it this morning on FBTB (it's other places, like the Brothers-Brick, as well). It looks like LEGO accidentally left pictures of an upcoming set, 10221, the Executor. Unless someone is pulling an elaborate late April Fools, this looks like a pretty awesome set.



BTW, I should note that the image no longer seems to be up on LEGO.com. I'm sure that any moment now, lawyers from LEGO are going to start contacting FBTB, the Brothers, etc, asking them to take down these images. Pretty much the same thing that happened with the Maersk train. What they need to understand is this - If I stand naked in front of my living room window, I can't really complain if people see me. If someone breaks into my locked house and sneaks into my bathroom to see me in the shower, well, for one they've got pretty sad lives, for two they are committing a crime. Posting any image on a publicly accessible webpage is the first case. Putting it behind password protection is the second case.

Yellow Building

Garth Danielson shows off his latest addition to Micropolis, a bright and cheery yellow building. In more muted hues, this would look right at home on a college campus.

Set 20021

The Brickmaster program has been canceled, and so you can't sign up for a new subscription, but apparently those with subscriptions have another set, 20021, MINI Bounty Hunter Gunship. I'm sure most of us won't have the option to get this, unless they offer it in some other form, but you can build your own.

Set review - 4331 - Pirate World

Today's set for review is 4331, Pirate World. As with all Playmo Micro sets, this one has figs both at the standard scale (2 of them) and at the smaller micro scale (12 figures total, grouped in 4 pairs and 4 attached to cannons). In addition, at the micro scale there is a ship, a fort, and the aforementioned cannons. The standard scale figs each are armed (one with a dagger and the other with a pistol). The great thing here is that you could use the micro figs as toys for the standard figs, or else you could put them together to create a forced perspective scene implying distance.
