Sporty SNOT car

At first glance, this sports car by LUGNETer and Flickrite Derek Schin doesn't look very impressive...but then, examine the photos. Check out the half stud- offset on the already SNOTty car hood:



Also check out the impressive SNOT on the rear:



It's a pity there isn't breakaway pictures.

Chick Brick

Go girl power! Megan Rothrock's recent batch of critter creations are colorful, creative and cartoony in a cool sort of way.


Urple the purple podragon uses a light blue and trans-purple X-pod container as a stomach.




Clickit-Nessie uses hair clips and Bionicle kraata as fins. I mean, Clickits hair clips? Awesomeness.



Finally, the Clickapillar's whole body is made up of X-pod lids, Bionicle claws and Clickits bits.



Thanks to Bruce Heintbrink for posting these on Classic-Castle.com.

LEGO Art

Well, if you're a regular visitor of fellow LEGO blogs The Brothers Brick and VignetteBricks, this post may seem like a broken record to you, but I just had to feature it. Annie Preston has recently posted some vignettes that recreate the works of Mondrian, Picasso and Pollock in LEGO. Check out that SNOT!

"Holy Spider-vigs, Batman!"

Wait...wrong comic. Nevermind. Anyway, Nelson Yrizarry has recently blown away the LEGO fan community by posting 16 -- count 'em, 16 -- Spiderman vignettes featuring our favorite web-head battling classic villians. This is an impressive feat in itself, but Nelson has also used some particular clever building techniques and parts in some of the vigs.

Check out Madame Web's snaking dress:



And the microscale buildings that create and excellent forced perspective.

Say it ain't so!

I never saw this coming. Ben Ellermann, founding admin at Classic-Castle.com, has made a space MOC!

After I got over the shock, I had to admit the SNOT on this thing was pretty cool.
