Hoth Base Diorama Lego Custom

I know I know. This is the millionth lego custom I have posted but they just seem to be getting better and better!
The 5' x10' Hoth base diorama consists of 60,000 pieces and has cool features such as 50 real LED lights and a remote controlled mechanism that deploys troops from the AT-ATs. Created by Mark Borlase, he spent about $3,000 and over 4 years in the making to complete this diorama. What a beautiful loser!
(Click to enlarge and see that he has also added footprints to the snow!!!! WTF!)

He tried to match some of the interior views that I found in the book "The Art of Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back".

Interior view with custom down lights, runway lights, custom walkway.

Graffiti Is For Life Not Just For Christies

Cept kills it with his latest piece on Sclater St, East London

Mickey Mouse X Transformers

Wow! Another slightly retarded crossover project involving a Disney character and some other 'cool' brand. Retarded as it may be, I'm still a fan of its weirdness! Apparently, for Tomy Takara's 25th Anniversary, they decided to team up with legendary character Mickey Mouse to do a special collab toy which is set to be released feb 2009 for approx $45 USD! (Look out for the limited grey edition too)


Clear Cut Robot To Combat Forest Fires

Designed by Jordan Guelde & Daniel Shankland II, this robot is aimed at fighting raging forest fires and going where firemen can't. By clearing belts of wood and debris around the inferno, it is possible to stop it from spreading any further. Armed with buzz saws, extinguishers and various tools, this bot is one high-tech momma! Although only in concept phase, this could prove to be an invaluable fire-tool...

Line Barrels Of Iron Mecha

Apparently, this mech-kit is a character featured in the anime Line Barrels Of Iron. The colors (paintjob) look great and I hope to one day own it!!

You can watch the first episode (subbed) HERE.


Christian Lorenz Scheurer

This guy has an incredible resume. He has worked as a visual consultant and concept artist for feature films such as The Golden Compass, Superman Returns, Animatrix, Final Fantasy (Spirits Within), Titanic and The Fifth Element! Each concept piece he comes up with is filled with detailed sections that would have taken hours and hours of hard graft, both with a pencil and tablet.

He currently has a show at the Gnomon Gallery in CA, USA which ends January 9th...

These are some pieces from Moscow and St. Petersburg.

Best Of ESPVisuals 2008

It's been a brilliant year of blogging and I have enjoyed every single post that has been up this year. From the 600 posts of 2008, I have gleaned what have been the most read up to today and I have to say, it seems that the majority of our readers are a pretty dark-minded bunch! Here they are in reverse order:

We hope to see you next year with even more wacky, beautiful and thought-provoking posts to come!

Graffiti Tourist: China
