This is the second time this weekend that we’ve shown flowers leading to deadly consesequences. Look at what Megan Rothrock has created - an overly abundant pink diorama with an insect decapitating a poor space explorer who picked the wrong flower. Lesson learned, don’t pick flowers.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a mech with pink highlights and a crotch cannon, but I guess one exists. Check out Alex Fojtik’s Satyr Class Biped, aka “Bubblegum.” Note the clever usage of the pink fence piece on the missile packs.
The latest installment in Rodney Bistline’s Space Action Hero series takes our intrepid hero into new dangers. Will he survive? Will he meet an untimely end on Slorox 5?
More in Rodney’s Brickshelf gallery. Via Klocki.

Foamrider recently posted a cute little flying rock. This one supplies a long-overlooked need. Namely a rest stop for those overworked denizens of the sky, the messenger owls!
I wish I had a messenger owl that I could overwork….

Takeshi Itou is one of the most incredible Castle builders out there. Every one of his creations is incredible. Its been quite awhile since his last one, but it has definitely been worth the wait.
This City Hall with linking bridges is very striking and I love all of the various Tudor houses.
Michael Jasper showcased some cool string bass and saxophone designs played by his Some Like it Hot characters last week, but he’s just added some more amazing musical instrument designs.
Not only do these Scotsmen carry ingenious bagpipes, but they’re also wearing kilts (made from minifig torsos):
This design for an electric guitar rocks my world:

It’s not often I look at a LEGO creation, go off to read more about it, and then come back and find that my appreciation for the work has grown. Even as a writer, I’ll admit that words rarely add anything to a LEGO creation for me.

We love Adam Grabowski’s vehicles, minifigs, and, oh, pretty much everything he does, but this Hellboy sculpture is an interesting departure. I suspect Mike Mignola would be proud.
Via Klocki. And don’t miss Jordan’s custom minifig from last year.
