Go big or go home, or in Mark Kelso's case, stay home and go big. I've been watching this thing be built for who knows how long, through dozens of work in progress pictures, but as numerous as the pictures of this unfinished beast are they cannot hold a candle to the enormity that is...
"The Spirit of Fire"
This ship is badass, and no doubt the guy who built it is equally so.

the drone supremacy
Lets just face the facts here. Fig barfs came and went like a president in his second term. It's time to find a new horse to beat, and the full metal hide of the "Drone" fad will no doubt hold up much longer then the weak prefab construction of your average collectafig.
So as you may or may not know building drones (fig scale mini-frames in this case) is nothing new for Craig (Tayasuune) or I (KingBrick) however recently we've had the joy to see a new interest in the theme which hopefully will last as long if not longer then the original sparks of interest we witnessed back in 2012.
Just recently we've had the pleasure of seeing many other builders takes on the theme
The photo above is provided to us by our boy Evan (Lego Junkie) entertains us all with his intimidating and rugged looking drones all contained within a scene reminiscent of a film that entertained immensely.
I really loved the use of rubber bands as wires on these drones and even went as far as to add some "wires" to one of the various drones sitting in front of me as I type this.
Drone is life
Drone is love
And happy holidays from all us here at brolug!
Brickworld for dummies.
Eating and drinking.
Then we learned about the difference between beauty pageants and popularity contests.
Brickworld was rad
We made lots of new friends and got to chill with our old friends. Good times man.
Get hyped for Brickfair!
bro-lug does Philly!
Because there has never been a prettier, safer, cleaner, vacation spot.
So maybe we didn't build that much, but we did other stuff too. Like exploring Philly and its rich culture of thrift shops, hipsters, and angry sports fans.
So to chalk up a long weekend of questionable judgement, good food, good friends, and good times. Forest (me) reigned supreme arm wrestling champ among other things, inflating his massive ego even further. Hunter was made an honorary bro and replacement mixologist after consistency related issues. Alex, undoubtedly being persuaded by the ever constant threat or rapists bought absurd amounts of weaponry from local stores; and finally, last but definitely not least, Carter became the self proclaimed "Baby Sitter" for the weekend.
and we all survived!!!!
