This is not a collection of beautifully arranged Danish plastic. Nope. This is a collection of beautifully arranged pixels. Yup, this stunning looking image – the product of three different builders – shows only a render of a virtual model.* But one that looks so unfathomably real that it fooled the whole TLCB office. Previous bloggee Sir.Manperson is the architect behind it and you can see more and read about the collaboration at both his MOCpages and Flickr photostream.
*We sometimes get asked why we don’t feature more digital creations. Today’s creation, despite being a digital render, proves our point. Real bricks, even the illusion of real bricks, are where it’s at.
The penthouse offices of The Lego Car Blog were the scene of yet another riot this morning. The Elves who found this GAZ-66 truck by Kirill Simerzin were expecting to be rewarded with handfuls of green Smarties. Unfortunately for them, they hadn’t spotted that this Russian 4×4 vehicle hasn’t actually been built in real bricks. Neither had we, until we read the description. This MOC has been built in the online Mecabricks app and then rendered to a very high standard indeed. Other builders are getting increasingly impressive results with the new Bluerender package. However, the Elves will still prefer models made from real bricks for the moment, otherwise the Smarties and meal tokens will be a bit thin on the ground.
