Happy Halloween

The Mini Castle Contest finishes up today on CC. More on that later. For today, I thought Lolino's entry Tartarus had a sufficiently spooky feel to celebrate the day.

Warscape Volume 1

Mini Castle Contest VII continues to inspire great MOCs. Siercon and Coral made an amazing series of eight separate scenes, each of which could be a post all by themselves, but tell a whole story and fit together to make Warscape Volume 1. More on Volume 2 in the near future ...

Walter boy calls this a failed attempt at forced perspective. Maybe, but that castle is pretty cool.

Love, exciting and new, come aboard, we're expecting you!

CharityBuzz is holding an auction, with the proceeds to benefit Gabrielle's Angel Foundation for Cancer Research. Anyway, they are featuring Love to the Rescue, which is essentially a bejewelled version of set 10155, the microscale Maersk container ship. This artist has done several other sculptures where they took LEGO, plated the bricks with gold, silver etc, and then added jewels and crystals to get a fairly stunning result. If you've got a spare $5000 burning a hole in your pocket you can place a bid right now.

Nano Hogwarts

We've featured a microscale Hogwarts before, but this one from Stacy Sterling is remarkably smaller, while still quite recognizable. Stacy writes that it was created for Guy Himber's Cabinet of Curiosities.

For a better view of the tiny objects in the Wunderkammer, check out this photo, which includes notes about the builders who contributed to the project.

This gorgeous cityscape was on display at BrickCon. Anyone know the builder?
