Jason over at BrickShow.com was kind enough to do a video review last week of all the Sci-Fi items that BrickWarriors currently offers. Not only is it a very informative review for anyone who hasn’t had a chance to get their hands on some BrickWarriors products yet, but it’s also great entertainment.
Here’s the link to the review on YouTube.
This week we came across 2 fantastic MOCs by Mark of Falworth, so we decided to do a double feature of his creations.
First, he built The Palace of Lorean, which included a detailed description of what is happening in the scene. The details are great…we especially like the vines growing on the walls.
He also created The Might of the Loreesi Paladins. One of the coolest details in this scene is definitely how he added some tan leaves to the trees to make them look more realistic. And you can spy some Rhino Helmets and Invader Helmets in use!
Geoshift has yet again transformed some LEGO accessories, creating a brilliant custom minifig…Loki Unleashed! The headgear is from a new Avengers set, and the painting leads beautifully into the Horned Plate Armor. The parts are perfectly seamless! And the chain and skull are fantastic additions.
I must say…Loki Unleashed is a phenomenal improvement over the LEGO Loki.

A few days ago C. Morgenweck had his 500th post on the BrickWarriors forums. And this post contained one of his coolest custom minifigs yet! The painting is sublime, but what really makes this figure awesome are all the bullet holes he crafted with an X-Acto knife.
Thanks for being such a great fan and creating fantastic customs out of our products C. Morgenweck!
The boot wings were designed to look great in helmets and also the back of LEGO minifigures’ legs. But Thrash and I were waiting to see what other cool things fans would use them for.
In the MOC Abracadabra, BrickDog Hammerstein put the wings to use in a very creative way! He made a clever little LEGO bird, which looks very realistic. It is definitely one of the coolest uses of the boot wings yet!
And Abracadabra is only the first from Hammerstein’s upcoming series of MOC’s “The Adventures of the great Soprendo”, so make sure to check it out!
It was another week of spectacular custom minifigures…making the Minifigure of the Week a really hard choice. So once again, we’re feature two great customs!
We’ve all come to expect fantastic custom minifigs from Family Bricks, and he has not let us down this week. Fire Knight 2 completely transformed the Bladed Helm…and the effect on the helmet is absolutely beautiful. And congratulations go out to Family Bricks for being the first person to ever be double featured as our Minifigure of the Week creator!
Ghost Trooper, by Bricks_n_more was another great figure we came across this week. The glossy effect really transforms the armor and helmet, making it truly unique! I’m always impressed when I see someone highlight all the details of accessories without any smudges! Also, the RT Helmet and Horned Plate Armor make a great combo.
When we started this blog we promised that we’d give sneak peeks of designs that we’re working on. Here’s the first of those sneak peeks…the Japanese Type 100 SMG!
EDIT: Based on the feedback I received I made a few adjustments…here’s version 2:
Yosemas created a very intricate model of the Chenonceau Castle. You can see from the side comparison that he tried to target all the little details to make it quite exact. Yosemas did a fantastic job…the model is a very accurate replica of the real castle. You can take a look at the whole construction process here.
He posted it in the BrickFiesta Flickr group because that is where he will be unveiling it this summer. And we can’t wait to see it in person in July! BrickFiesta is less than three months away, and we hope to see a lot of you there!
