fergieThe info has already covered, but I can not help showing you this photo of Fergie, singer of the Black Eyed Peas, molded in a dress of the most beautiful effect.
Designed especially for the 24th "Kids' Choice Awards" organized by the Nickelodeon channel by Michael Schmidt, a designer based in Los Angeles who had already put his talents to the service of Cher, Madonna and Janet Jackson in the past, this dress caused a sensation. .
Stylist Bea Akerlund and the LEGO Company were also involved in the design of this corset-based dress. Baseplates were hot-water molded onto the singer's body, and many plates and other bricks were then attached using multiple metal links. It should also be noted that Fergie sports bracelets also designed based on LEGO parts.
So "Happening"exceptional designer, where the start of a commercial operation to promote a line of" jewelry "LEGO ....

stun-tankOn a lighter note than the previous post, here is an interesting MOC.

While I'm not necessarily blown away by the design and finish of this Stun Tank seen in the Clone Wars animated series, I'm presenting it to you here because I think every MOC of a little seen model so far deserves the we pay attention to it.

Regarding this Stun Tank, the reproduction is faithful to the visual below, with the exception of the turret and the cannon that the MOCeur has designed to its liking.

If you want to see more in particular on the different removable compartments of this MOC, go to sok117's flickr gallery, Or on the dedicated topic on the Eurobricks forum.

10221 0000 xx 12 1An image from the cache of the LEGO site and visible at this address currently circulating and provoking heated debates.

So it looks like the next UCS set carries the reference 10221 and we get an ultra-detailed Executor accompanied by a slew of minifigs and a scale Star Destroyer.

If criticisms are already pointing to the design of the craft, everyone agrees on the choice of this vessel for a self-respecting UCS set. It remains to know the price and the date of availability (October 2011?) .....

snowmoc larsIn the large community of genius MOCers, there is one who persists in upgrading his T-47 Snowspeeder MOC.

This is Larry Lars, who since 2006 regularly offers an improved version of this iconic machine from the Star Wars saga.

In total, six different versions have been offered by Lars over the years.

The 2011 version is obviously the most successful and the level of detail is impressive for a System-wide MOC.

If you want to admire the different views of the machine, go to Larry Lars' flickr gallery or the dedicated topic at Eurobricks.

minifigureThe release of the LEGO Store Calendar in May 2011 started the debate: For $ 75 of purchases of products from the LEGO Star Wars range in stores or on the LEGO Shop, Americans (and perhaps us Europeans via the Shop) will be offered an exclusive minifigure represented on the pdf announcing this promotion via a strange dark form.

The discussion is going well on the various forums including that ofSteine ​​Imperium where a consensus seems to be made around a possible black ARF Trooper minifigure.

In any case, I hope we will have access to this promotion, or we will still have to put out a few dollars on Bricklink or eBay to get it ....

I put below an image of these ARF Troopers, for you to get an idea of ​​the resemblance between the two visuals. 
Some forumers have raised the possibility that the representation presented on the Store Calendar is a generic visual simply announcing the exclusive character of the minifigure that will be offered and only confirming that it will indeed be part of the Star Wars universe .....
