Perler Bead Simpsons: One Shot Wonders – Pixel Art Show

Blocked-Up
March 22, 2018

Though we feature LEGO in this blog quite a bit, this blog is about creativity in general, and Pixel Art is something that’s grown on me considerably over time to the point that I do my own Pixel Art myself and have my own store.

In any case, the video producer and creator Kyle McCoy is the one singlehandedly responsible for putting me on this path, and I’ll always be eternally grateful.

What follows below is his latest work and piece relating to the Simpsons, which is his favorite topic.

15,000 Piece LEGO Ultimate Collector Series AT-M6!

Blocked-Up
March 17, 2018

RichboyJhae has done a phenomenal job in creating a Minifig-scale AT-M6, which as many of you know is an iconic vehicle from the classic Star Wars.

Watching him build it through his live streams has been great, and hopefully in the future I can myself build this.  Irrespective of that though, the job that RichboyJhae has done has been phenomenal and it should be commended as such.

In my opinion he just raised the bar for MOC makers everywhere, and that can only be good.

What are your thoughts?

Tropical Holiday Bungalow Du Jour!

Blocked-Up
March 8, 2018

Though we’ve been attempting to spread the love here on Blocked Up and feature various creators, we have to once again feature one of our favorites, that being Sarah Beyer for her latest build of her Tropical Holiday Bungalow.

Tropical Holiday Bungalow MOC. A glimpse of paradise.

The detail featured on the MOC is intricate, and the incisive use of pieces is accurate as can be.  As someone who grew up in the tropics though, in Puerto Rico to be exact, its the entire feel of the whole MOC that just gets me.  You can see yourself there, taking in the winds and allowing the waves to serenade your ears as you enjoy your timely vacation.

If you wish view more of Beyer’s work, please follow her on Flickr and make sure to check up regularly on it, for she works hard at consistently putting out high quality and yet refreshing designs.

The USS Marlin!

Blocked-Up
March 8, 2018

This MOC reminds me of so many things, though not exactly because it looks like them, but more so because its an underwater vehicle.  For the record, the main ship it reminds me of is called SeaQuest submarine, which was part of a TV series that took place about a decade and a half ago and had an advance submarine.  This build looks nothing like it, but for some reason the reminder is there.

Irrespective of that, though, this build is downright phenomenal.  I’ve never seen anything like it before, and can definitely see this hitting people’s “wow” factor.  If you do enjoy it, make sure to give Markus Ronge a follow on Flickr and check out the rest of his work.

What say you?  Like, dislike?  Let us know either way!

LEGO MOC: Finder’s Keepers

Blocked-Up
March 21, 2018

A quite unique MOC by Robert4186.  The outside-of-the-box thinking for it is really something very refreshing, and his execution is just as poignant.  It surely brings up thoughts of Pirates to say the least.

Finders Keepers...
