Nothing But Brick's April Minifig Of The Month - Freddie Mercury

Queen has got to be one of the most influential bands in the history of rock. Coincidentally, it's also one of my favorite musical acts of all my time. Each member of the group is a helluva musician in his own right, but it's lead vocalist, Freddie Mercury who took musicianship and showmanship to the next level.

Brothers In Arms

The Twins unsuspectingly found themselves in a bind. An unexpected detour brought them to what was supposed to be the ruins of an ancient temple, where they found themselves surrounded by a lounge of lizardfolks. Armed with their swords and short bows, the duo managed to survive the initial onslaught of what seemed to be an endless swarm.

Mech Frame Updates With A Little Help From LDD

I'm really happy with how the first version of my mech frame turned out. I made it a point to properly document the build so I could easily improve the prototype and also lose the risk of forgetting how I built it. haha Believe me, it happens. Good thing, I still have a copy of the Lego Digital Designer (LDD) application in my laptop. Too bad, Lego no longer supports the app but you can still download it for free from Lego's website. Check out several versions of my mech frame!

MOC Post: Telesto, A Microscale Ship

I've been going through some of my old albums in Facebook and found several MOCs I've done two or three years ago. It was around the time I emerged from my dark ages and before I started Nothing But Brick. Sci-fi has been one of the many influences which drew me back to Lego. You see, I've always been a sucker for humongous spaceships and giant robots. Anyway, here's my attempt to build a micro scale ship. I present to you, the Telesto.

Building My Own Mech Frame!

I've always wanted to build my very own mech frame ever since I emerged from my dark ages. One of my goals back in 2015 was to build Lego mechs to compliment my army of minifig pilots. This has been my frustration since then. Initially, I thought this was an easy task but after doing some research online, I've come to think otherwise. After looking at the work of all the awesome builders from the web, I realized mech building is an art form. Not only that. Building the perfect Lego mech starts with the frame, which unfortunately, I had no idea how to make. Until recently.

The Drifter

Disclaimer: Hi, folks! This was a little something I wrote back in college. Special thanks to my good friend, Isay Roque for editing my work. She has helped me with my writing since then and I really learned a great deal of stuff from her. Check out her blog, Starting My Own Think Tank. Click here! Anyway, on with the show.

The setting sun slowly crept to the dark line of the horizon. It was a perfect orb that silver-lined the clouds that floated gracefully and endlessly. It dimly lit the orange sky as it gently touched the green patches that stretched across the land. Truly, it was a picture-perfect view, one that brings peace and contentment to the soul.

Nothing But Brick's March Minifig Of The Month - St. John Bosco

Hi, folks! I'm pleased to announce a new segment here on the blog: Minifig of the Month! In this segment, I'll be featuring one minifig from my collection of mixed and matched figs every month. Read on for this month's MOM!

It's been a while since I've mixed and matched and I terribly missed it. I've been doing it for almost a year now and there's always a personality I've wanted to recreate in Lego for the longest time so now, I finally decided to flesh him out.

Weekend Getaway! Building The TFA Millenium Falcon!

Happy New Year, folks! Apologies for the short break right at the beginning of the year. You see, I've been busy these past few weeks because my sisters, Maine and Dior, who both live overseas, are home and the family and I have been spending as much time as we can with them. They'll be flying back to their respective countries on the first week of February so we have to make the most out of their vacation. We're running out of time!
