The Community Window at the Fashion Valley LEGO Store has been recently changed out and this month it features the work of Matt Armstrong, aka monsterbrick. For this month, Matt has brought in some of his animal-type builds including a cobra, elephant, spider, and mouse. If you have Beautiful LEGO 2: Dark, which we reviewed back in October, you may notice a couple of the builds have been featured in the book.
The cobra build named Danger Danger! was created in 2009 and consists of about 500 pieces, mostly with claw elements. If you stretch it all out, it is a little more than 5 1/2 feet in length.
The other build that’s been featured in Beautiful LEGO 2: Dark is the spider. It is named No…Lil Miss Muffet Lives Down the Street and it consists of about 100 pieces.
In the foreground is a little TECHNIC mouse. You can see another angle of it here.
Finally, the last animal is the Mecha-Elephant. What’s cool about this build is that the legs are from the style of the Star Wars AT-AT. The rest of the elephant is just Matt’s style.
I’ve seen images of these builds online before but to see them in person is totally different. Just the sheer size and detail of these builds are truly amazing. If you’re in San Diego, I suggest go checking out the Community Window for yourself. Also if you’re lucky to have a LEGO Store near you, go check out some builds of local … Continue
To get in the Halloween mood, the LEGO Community Window at my LEGO Brand Store (Fashion Valley) has been updated by a couple of members from SandLUG. This month, we have Spooky Ville! which is a haunted house filled with a number of CubeDudes built by Jason which he names CubeCreatures. As you can see, the Creatures are based on monsters that you probably would see during Halloween time like Dracula, the Bride of Dracula, the Mummy, the Wolf Man, the Blob, the Frankenstein Monster, the Bride of Frankenstein, the Headless Horseman, the Swamp Thing, and many more. I’ve been informed that a couple of the characters were built by Hao as well.
The haunted house itself is created by Hao and Tommy and has some interesting details like the way they created the cemetery headstone in the shape of a cross using a TECHNIC belt wheel and modified 1×1’s with clip.
If you’re in the area and have some free time, I highly suggest swinging by the store to check out the LEGO Community Window and see it in person because the pictures really don’t do it justice.
