The genre of this alone, dieselpunk, is enough to get my attention but the style and pulpy action that radiate from this build makes this one of my favorite projects to date.
This is not just a pretty face though, there is a lot of great technique too. I am very curious as to how JonHall18 pulled off not only a very impressive off-angle build in from the main chassis to wings, but also manages to support such a mass of brick from those single points!
JohHall18 showcases that he is not only great at MOCing but also at custom figure design and fabrication. Those figures look like a perfect asset to the Spirit.
This project also does one more thing that I really love to see in a MOC, but that I know just wont fly with LEGO corporate and that is to use minifig torsos creatively. If you look at the exhausts from the engines, those are four torso in a row, with the hands popped out. Totally illegal but what a great effect.
Assault on Wayne Manor
Will it get produced? Who knows, but I honestly think that DarthKy is bringing something new to not only fans of Batman but also to the concept of modulars.
I love modulars but one of my complaints is that you really can't appreciate the complexity of the internals while also displaying the build (have cake / eat cake conundrum). DarthKy's solution, like the Scorpion's Soul is to change up the format by using hinges to open up the stage rather than stacking. I find this to be extremely effective in this case.
A Week of Cuusoo
I know at this scale the image might look a mess but if you are a fan of mecha, especially micro-mecha like MFZ, be sure to check this one out.
Other impressive projects that came out this week were a "space excursion vehicle", another BttF build by Team BttF (of course), and an assortment of hot rods. Also, the staff at Cuusoo was nice enough to, arguably, show some tangible support for the theory of "inevitable discovery." My review of these projects and a few other odds and ends can be found here.
