I Said Ornj r0cks Yer World, But Lime Green r0cks Yer Universe.

Bram built a beautiful concept car. And then he took pictures. And then he posted them. And then I saw them. And then I almost fainted.
Well, no, I didn't. But I might have. The Lime green is the awesomest part of this MOC. I love lime green.
The canopy is well here, looks very sporty. I also like the spoiler. Ah, three wheeled, dual exhaust, black and shiny super cars. Gotta love 'em.

Quick Update For Y'All

And as you may have noticed, Snoikle now looks different. I was getting tired of the last template and decided to try out some new ones. What do you think of this one?

Nelson Yrizarry (Y-Bros-K on BrickShelf) has built some awesome MOCs in the past. His PCS specter, Orge and Jin-Du fighter are all outstanding. But this may be one of his best works yet. The waterfall coming over the side is a concept I actually worked into a version of my ever changing FR. He of course, does it much nicer than I did. The bamboo adds a certain mystical feel to the MOC, dunno, it just feels cool. The little computer room is reminiscent of Ryan Wood's Shroom Rock. The more I browse through this folder, the deeper in love I fall with it. *sigh* I must now redo parts of my FR.

He also built a sweet little sailcraft to transport the owner of the FR around. Excellent use of the dino fin as a sail, and the coffin piece as the hull. This guy never ceases to amaze me.

I Was Blogging Along One Day....

Linky BShelf user truedimensions built a cool micro-scale spaceship. The Leonov from the movie 2010 - The Year We Make Contact. Nice shapes and details on this. It looks so much like something NASA might build, although not, I'll guess, in the year 2010. So many angles are present. It keeps the ship from getting boring. The colors could use some tightening up, and the tiles get a kinda random pattern along the hull. Of course, I've built things suffering the same thing. And on we go...

Fellow blogger Lukas pointed this out as one of the things to be blogged on his blog. (yay blogs!) I like it. It conveys a certain sense of "OMFG WTF IS THAT?!?!" Nice use of those teeth pieces. Linky
And that concludes todays broadcasting. And now, back to your regular programming.

OMG! Monsters!!11!!1oneone

Mind-blowing awesome MOCs are a trademark of Mark Stafford I think. Cause this is surely a mind-blowing MOC.
The first thing you notice is the size, this thing is gianormous! (before you ask, no, it's not a word) The level of activity is amazing. Monsters bursting through the ground, people running in terror, Dr. Who watching ect. ect. Among my favorite details are the jeep with the gunner, the Doctor with the Taris (sp?) and the entrance to the mine shaft it's self. Beautiful work on the surrounding desert as well. Boulders and brush are abundant, the cliff is fairly passable. (Were it all dk gray he'd get bonus points) And there's the undead portion as well. Undead Native Americans coming to stop the explorers from disturbing the monsters. A little late methinks. The monsters deserve a note of appreciation, thee green one is my favorite. They both look so freaking scary! The big dk blue(?) one kinda looks like a Sarlaac. I would very much hate to one of those mercenaries.Eaten by a huge monster with fifty-bazillion teeth. *shudder* The plane and trucks are cool as well. Check out the detail he puts on just one of these things. So in conclusion, Mark proves he can build stuff no other mortal can come close to. Good job MArk, good job!

Pinball Wizard
This one needs no review.
It's big.
It's white.
It's Canadian.

Also of note, are Tim Gould's Guges Landmate.

JP's X=Zorglumobile.

And TJ's little steamflyers.

You may have noticed I actually didn't review any of these MOCs. (if you didn't get your brain checked please ;-) )
I'm trying a new approach to blogging, pretty much review when i want to, just post pics when I'm to lazy.

It's Not Even Real Bricks....

But it is a cool little fighter, the color blocking is what grabs me on this one. Dk red is (as I've said before) one of my favorite colors. The black and white work well with it. The cockpit is kinda blocky, I'd like it more with a smoother canopy. It gets kinda choppy around the nose, but that's a little nit. I also like the stand, a nice touch for a non-real bricks MOC. Well, that's it for tonight,

I had Pizza Tonight.

I know, I know, it's been a while. I was out at a farm in the middle of kansas helping clear up storm damage. (a barn to be specific) I got to beat things with hammers and stuff. Great fun. Where was I? Oh yeah, laygoes.

So Kevin built some more cool little black and yellow href=""">typetype href="">things They look, well, shall we say well-armed?
I love the looks of them.


Second up, we have Nick Dean's Longbow Anti-Mech Sniper. I love the treads on this baby. Treads make everything better. The guns are the second thing I like. Perfectly positioned I think. It also has a decent color scheme.

Coming in third on our Snoikle-Catch-Up Series is a cool little armored thingy. Looks perfect for supressing riots that get out of hand. Or for just running to the grocery store for some mango juice. I live the number on top. It adds to the feel of the vehicle. The perfect blend of tiled and studs is lovely. And the dk gray just seems cool right there. The Wheels are yet another nice feature. I think Soren may have used them first, but that means little, as Soren seems to have done everything first.
Also, I'm pretty sure this intended to be an Iron Reich truck. If so, it really does the trick. I may have to build something like this soon.

*Notice* Two things I wanted to tell y'all. Some of the HTML is jacked-up, and I'm too tired to fix it tonight.
The other thing being, just to let you know, I hate you too Kevoh.

I Bilt.

Tis hard to belive. I don't build that often any more. But I did this time. A stealth shuttle for a faction I'm working on. I still need a name for them. A mercenary group who does recon work. Suggestions for a name welcome.
