LEGO Team Fortress 2

Team Fortress 2 LEGO

Building detailed models out of LEGOs has always been an interesting hobby (though not necessarily one that I’d take on myself) which is why work like this set of Team Fortress 2 characters is so impressive.

Each character is made with genuine LEGO pieces, and from what I can tell, doesn’t use a ton of them either, which makes it even more impressive.

…Automations can tase too?

Don't Tase Me Bro

Jon Haddock’s Don’t Tase Me Bro, a hand cranked Automaton of Andrew Meyer’s famous incident, is probably the best use of wood, casein and paper mache that I’ve ever seen:

…Models don’t always look like models?

I’ve always been fascinated with the world of fashion and how it shapes and molds our sense of beauty, so it’s great to see the work of artists like Greg Kessler, who photographs models before and after the makeup artist gets them ready for the runway.

Like Dove’s True Beauty Campaign, it gives a fantastically honest look at what these people actually look like, and shows that even the supermodels can’t look like what they look like on the runway.

…It’s Movie Monday: LEGO Millennium Falcon?

What’s better than watching the LEGO Millennium Falcon get built in stop-motion?

Watching the LEGO Millennium Falcon get built by a bunch of Star Wars Minifigs in stop motion.

Though I can only imagine how long it takes to build a 5,195 piece model like this, it must take exponentially longer to build it and film the whole process as a stop-motion movie along the way, so be sure to check it out so that the guy’s efforts don’t go to waste!

…St. Pauli has a new Girl, and her name is Katarina Van Derham?

St Pauli Girl Katarina Van Derham

After what must have been a very long and grueling search, St. Pauli has finally found their St. Pauli Girl for 2009, and it’s a “successful print and TV model” named Katarina Van Derham.

In case you were worried that the St. Pauli Girl was going to be anything less than perfect, just be happy to know that Katarina is 5’6” tall with blonde hair and blue-green eyes, is fluent in five languages including English, Slovak, Czech, Russian and Polish, has modeled for Vogue, Marie Claire, FHM and Iron Man, has been featured in ad campaigns for AT&T, Bicycle Casino, Rockstar Energy Drink and Dodge, is trained in Krav Maga, a military self-defense technique, enjoys kick-boxing, wrestling and playing basketball, volleyball and table tennis, and when she’s not modeling, she’s developing her own make-up line and working on architectural graphic design.

Oh, and she looks good in a Bavarian Beer Girl costume. (Holding Photoshopped beers if you look closely at the image above.)
