A horror to end the year with

My final project of 2008 entails a sixteen square feet diorama depicting the theme that I know best: horror.在俄罗斯第二次世界大战的背景下,a collossal alien artifact which I refer to as the Black Fantasy Column towers from the ground,spreading darkness along with an invasion ofCyclopean Virtuesacross the landscape,consuming the helpless soldiers.The creation contains over 20,000 pieces,包括来自砖瓦,Brickforge,andMMCB.

为了最大限度地利用观看体验,我建议通过teaserand then reading thebackstory,which is historically accurate to the best of my internet research.新年快乐,享受End of Days.

Microscale Howl's Moving Castle by Horace Cheng

Howl's Moving Castleis easily my favorite Miyazaki film of the last 10 years or so.I never imagined the enormous castle could be shrunk down to microscale,butHorace Chengdoes it with detail to spare.


Maybe I should've included this in the ApocaLEGO roundup…

The new MOCpages,a better place for sharing your creations [News/Editorial]

Starting today,visitors toMOCpageswill discover a whole new set of available features to make the sharing of LEGO creations a more fun and interactive experience.Going into the new year,MOCpages has undergone significant changes following the suggestions of fans over the years.新功能允许您加入and participate in discussion topics,receive activity updates on your creations and from yourfavorite builders,浏览最近的流行的创作与创作do much more.

新的mocpages集成了Flickr等网站的流行功能,Youtube,and Facebook.At the same time,这个网站仍然是乐高迷们唯一可以将启用HTML的网页用于展示创意的地方。新的评论系统(以前用作评论)现在允许讨论创作,further enhanced by users being able to create a好友图标个性化的身份。

The activities pages displaycomments关于你的创作,new creationsby your favorite builders,latest discussions in yourandmore.

Mocpages采用了一种探索功能,可以让您浏览day,week,and.In addition,you can sort through creations to see themost discussedones and themost recent.

Groups把人们聚集在一起,利益,and creations.You can create and administer your own or join others.Also,you can start discussion topics within groups,主办竞赛,work on group projects,and do more.

These are just a few of the many new features of the new MOCpages.If you're not a user yet,报名is free.

And now for the brief editorial portion regarding the new MOCpages.As someone who has been actively using MOCpages for its past four out of five years of existence on the web,I can say that the new site marks the most significant change in the history of this community.然而,在过去的几年里,MOCpages has acquired a negative image among some LEGO fans,who have observed the quality of its showcased creations to decline;and as a result,many withdrew from using MOCpages and switched to sites such as Flickr.Nevertheless,there are still a handful of reputable builders who continue to use MOCpages for its unique feature to dedicate a customizable webpage to the display of one's creations.With the implementation of the new features,MOCpages gains characteristics that significantly boosts its previously lacked interactive qualities.Will these changes be enough to attract prominent builders and more adult fans to its new community?

It is worthwhile to note the achievements of man running the show,Sean Kenney,who singlehandedly maintained the website during all these years.In the recent past,Sean has been busy with setting up the new MOCpages and has made revision after revision to the site following the suggestions by the testers.探索了新网站的所有主要功能,I attest that the new community is ready for its launch.Sean has put down the potentials for the new MOCpages to become an even more popular place to share LEGO creations;it is now up to us builders to add our contributions.

In the course of the near future,Mocpages将继续开发并实现更多功能。来年将是重大变化和增长的一年。所以,顺便看看,找出你的旧密码或创建一个新帐户。Join in on the party while it has just begun.
