AZu1. “The AZ unit 01 (AZu1) is an extremely fast and agile mech. It can easily get to strategic positions where it can maintain heavy cover fire, for its allies, from its high caliber cannon rifle. Although it’s relatively light weight and agility comes at a price of sacrificing heavy armor, making it vulnerable to close combat.” (Image Source: intrond)

Harlequin’s Gauntlet. “It took over two years to finish, and I learned a lot about how to (not) build SHIP’s. Since this was my first one, I didn’t realize the importance of building so it can’t be disassembled into sections. As a result, it is about four feet long (approximately 130 studs).” (Image Source: Genghis Don)

Project GeoSword. “An electromagnetic linear motor mass driver system, powered by two fusion reactors. The projectile (or slug) is the size and mass of a small safe.

Reflection

It was really a fun time exploring different kind of Lego models in Flickr and DeviantArt. What I saw are not only borderless imagination and creativity, but also great patience that eventually make the impossible possible. I was really amazed and touched, hat off to all Lego masters.

Saw a Lego model that’s just cool and awesome? Come’on, don’t keep it, show it to us! Also I will like to know if you’re like me, who got the feeling to pick up the game again after viewing the entire showcase!
