Storken the Coast

Lego Coast Guard Mech 'Storken'

This spectacular looking creation is, apparently, a Storken Coast Guard robot, built by the Swedes to retrieve objects lost to rapidly rising sea levels.  Whilst we’re well out of our depth (hah!) with sci-fi builds, this simian-esque mech is a spectacularly cool way for us to dip a toe in the sci-fi pool (hah!). There’s more to see on Flickr courtesy of LEGOLIZE IT MAN‘s photostream, where there’s a wealth of other-worldly builds available to view.

And the award for shot of the year goes to...

Another brave Elf today, which comes back to base with a digital creation. Although we do like ‘old-skool’ real brick builds more, this is a photo that stood out above everything.

This is a Hercules C-130 Coast Guard plane, made by mmbace (or Matt Bace, if you are from MOCpages). Making the MOC is one task, editing the image is two. This MOC stands out because of the amazing image of it “in the air”, and Matt’s other shots have a beautiful finish and rendering too.

We’ll give this Elf a medal for its braveness, because hey, we do have a new post. Check out all the images on Flickr at the link above.
