Its hip to be square!
Its amazing to me how creative people can be, especially with a payload of 5000+ small toy bricks. I had forgotten about LEGOS all together until the arrival of the new tech writer at my work, we'll refer to him as "Dunechaser", his blog handle. Little did I know he was LEGO Ninja in his spare time, and a damn good one at that.
He doesn't just put together the kits and stuff you buy in stores, he gets inspired and builds stuff with the all the pieces he has collected since he was a kid. He refer's to himself as a LEGO purist, which means "I don't cut, paint, or otherwise modify the pieces I use in my creations."
He took some time to do some ninja stuff for me, and has a series of historical japanese figures he made. I wanted to take a second to showcase his work and sites here, as they are cool, hip, and fun to look at. Take a look at for yourself at http://dunechaser.blogspot.com/ and http://japaneselego.blogspot.com/ and see if you dont wanna run out to toy'r us and get yourself some LEGOS.
