[UPDATE: LEGOLand Florida to open at the end of 2011]
Ho. Ly. Crap. My wildest dreams are about to come true! No, not the ones about Kathy Ireland, the jell-o tub and penguins. This is even better!
Just as a reminder, in case the significance of this isn’t immediately apparent: I live in Florida. That’s right, biatches, I is getting my own LEGOLand!!!!!111!!11!eleventyone!!1
When a tiny peaceful world was invaded, they found themselves with a desperate need for armed starfighters. The only spacecraft they possessed that had a decent amount of speed and toughness were used by the Planetary Meter Service, or PMS. These “meter-maids” darted about the myriad orbital facilities, enforcing parking rules and issuing citations for improperly parked starcraft.
With the addition of a hyper-booster, armor, maneuvering wings and twin laser cannons, the Meter-maid made quite a sturdy little starfighter. The enhanced speed combined with the PMS pilots in-depth knowledge of the intricacies of the orbital docking platforms made this squad extremely successful.
My latest LEGO creation: AT-HV/AA
The AT-HV/AA (All Terrain-Hover Vehicle/Anti-Aircraft) is a medium duty surface effect vehicle. Multiple configurations/weapons loadouts make it ideal for a number of different roles.
This is the Anti-Aircraft configuration. Crew: 3 – One driver, one officer, one gunner.
I really like the underside of this guy:

Introducing Jaguar’s first foray into the hover car market, the Jaguar XH. Show above is the single passenger racing model, however Jaguar assures us that a twin-seat consumer model is not far behind.
The Crimson Guard is charged with the defense of the Emperor’s personal flagship. Armed only with twin pumped lasers, their relative lack of firepower is made up for by their extreme speed and agility.

How is it possible that I missed this?!? This is my new favorite video EVAR!!! Al Yankovic is a GOD and jrdmovimkr can totally be Jesus for this kick-ass video!
I used to watch Knight Rider faithfully as a kid. Never missed that or Dukes of Hazzard. I was blown away with nostalgia when I saw this creation by Firas Abu-Jaber. You’ve got to check out his whole photostream. There are some fantastic goodies there!
Hat tip to Zack over at BrickSpace
My 6 year old is very interested in Super Mario Bros. He’s played all the old-school games, and the new ones. He has toys, a crocheted doll, pajamas, shirts… let’s just say he has a bunch of Mario stuff. But what he wanted most for christmas was Mario Legos. So “Santa” complied.

November was a fantastic month. Not only did it contain the birthdays of the CyberLizard and his Mrs., but it was also the first NoVVember, a tribute to the awesome Vic Viper. The Brothers Brick interviewed Nnenn, the driving force behind the project. Now that NoVVember is over, he has put together an awesome poster of all the contributions. If you look closely, you’ll even see a couple from little old me. It’s the closest I’ve ever come to being featured on the Brothers Brick 😉
It’s totally worth the clickthrough to see the enormous original size.
So I’ve gotten off my lazy arse and actually took pictures of some of the LEGO creations I’ve been working on. I’ll start you off with this one. Look for more in the coming week.
For the NoVVember Vic Viper celebration:
