In honor of the 40th anniversary of the establishment of his esteemed castle, the King of the Purple Crown has called for a joust and celebration!
His best knight, and three of the greatest knights from afar, have come hither to recreate the celebrated jousts from days of yore. Each one accompanied by their own trusty squire. Who will win this time? You decide!
- The castle comes in at just around 1000 pieces, perfect for a $100 set (And could easily be knocked down a notch or two)
- Features 4 knights, 4 squires, a guard, and an archer, each with alternate faces and alternate armor and weapons for the knights (and don’t forget the horses, too!)
- Raise and lower the castle drawbridge using the winch on the side of the battlements! (String for the drawbridge not shown)
- Modeled lovingly after castles of antiquity, but using modern construction materials!
- The inside of the castle features a path, a well, weapon and armor racks, and a tilt barrier for the joust!

Based on the Andromeda’s Gates forum on the Eurobricks fan site, the Octan High-Powered Laser (HPL) Drill is used for drilling for much-needed resources on tough terrains for the Octan Corporation planets in the Andromeda galaxy. It has an opening dome cockpit with controls, unique tri-legged design, Octan color scheme, and extendable legs, and is foldable into a compact mode.
“I lost most of the photos in an unfortunate hard drive accident; but since I was able to salvage this one (though not very high quality), I figured it was worth sharing anyway.” – Brickster_Tim

Here is the beautiful mountaintop stronghold! Alluded to in the Riverside Castle post, this amazing landscape features a huge field with trees and waterfall spilling into a lake. Walk up the steps to the castle, open the gates and check out all of the rooms and features! There is a prison, lord’s weapons room, planning room, armory (with ladders to the underground blacksmith shop with light-up furnace), several catapults, 12 minifigures, removable castle sections, and much more!
Finally: a black version of the classic Batman vehicle The Tumbler! It has so many movie-accurate details straight from The Dark Knight Trilogy. Not only does it have room for 2 minifigures, but it has controls in the opening cockpit, 4 big wheels in the back and 2 wheels in the front, cannons under opening panels, and the classic rocket booster in the back. This is a must-have for all LEGO Batman collectors!
In your everyday spaceway travels, you might hear a rumbling and a huge thundering mass go by. That would be the N.W.E.S. Escort. As the first in the New World Explorer series, this pioneer cruiser was made primarily as a cargo ship, but evolved into a defense craft, designed to last a long time in space with a minimal crew.

Also known as the “Brain Buster”, this machine was created for a 2013 Hero Factory contest. As evil brain-controlled creatures roamed Makuhero City, LEGO fans were called upon to created a viable defense for the heroes. Dissatisfied with the lack of an appearance from Jimi Stringer in the LEGO sets released in the year, Brickster_Tim decided to give him the part he deserved by making him a giant, four-legged machine.

“In my opinion, this creation marks the beginning of the employment of unusual building techniques in my works. It was created for a sideways-building contest (where you have to build a spaceship using the sideways-building technique). I built the main wings, then constructed the cockpit using sideways building. With a main engine, secondary thrusters, blaster cannons, missiles, landing gear, and more, this one remains one of my favorites.” – Brickster_Tim Continue reading
“Constructed out of a bunch of Hero Factory parts, this little bug has the unusual feature of round ball pieces for eyes. I didn’t really put a lot of effort into this; but still, despite the poor camera quality, it does look pretty good.” – Brickster_Tim

“This is the only creation I ever made that I sent into a LEGO “Cool Creations” column. In fact, I received a letter from The LEGO Group describing how much they liked it.” – Brickster_Tim
