Sometimes I even amaze myself. Work in progress of the light bulb rigging of my #LEGO traffic signal lamp.
Making a 3D CAD mockup if my next big #LEGO model for another #Instructables contest - for illuminated arts/crafts. I’ve given myself the green light to move forward with this expensive project: I’ve spent over $60 in specialty electrical parts thus far! #TrafficLights
Electronic mosaic LEGO portrait of my deceased Main Coon named Tiggs!
I built this entire project over the course of a weekend, and then rigged up a simple parallel circuit behind the eyes to make them light up, in the same style as the stained glass window of my Super Mario Brothers 3 airship.
This is the Mk.1 edition of the portrait; soon I’m going to remake the eyes to be more green, as the orange and yellow kind of makes them look demonic! The lights in the picture are small 5 Watt bulbs, and soon I’m also going to switch them with bright LED bulbs to reduce heat. I’ve certainly got a knack for making portraits of cats — I should probably build others!

The last sneak peek you’ll be seeing until tomorrow’s photo shoot! #LEGO #catstagram (at Baron von Brunk’s Attic Fortress of Justice)
My famous #Nintendo64 #Transformer made from #LEGO bricks has been published in the #Portuguese art/design magazine #Companhia in #Lisbon! I’m world famous!! #Nintendo #N64 #Transformers
Throwback Thursday: two years ago on this date, I began production for one of my first ambitious #LEGO projects to use several thousand pieces - a 6-foot replica of a #SuperMario airship model! This project was then featured in several news/gaming sites, and eventually published in #Nintendo Power in May 2012! Fun fact: my ingenious engineering method of construction was conceptualized whilst I was drunk! #Mario #SuperMario3 #tbt
Work on progress of my next #LEGO mosaic portrait: a tribute to my deceased Maine Coon Tiggs (1995? - 2010). I’ve just reached the halfway point: the eyes shall contain a special feature involving the sort of unorthodox techniques you’d expect to see from me! #cats #catstagram (at Baron von Brunk’s Attic Fortress of Justice)
"Dark Link Battle" - original LEGO creation by Baron von Brunk
This is another large creation photographed in my new makeshift light tent, using PVC pipes, white linen, and powerful 5,000K daylight CFL bulbs. In this particular diorama, I depict a famous mini boss battle from everyone’s favorite temple of all time — the Water Temple!
These two figurines are of course clones of my Mecha Link 1.0 model. Click here for a tutorial on how to build your own!

Wolfenstein 3D Gatling Gun - original LEGO creation by Baron von Brunk.
This bad boy shall soon be used as a prop in a forthcoming photo session I’m getting done! By the way, this was the first LEGO creation to be photographed in my new makeshift light tent for taking pictures of large items. That being said, you’ll expect to see a lot of bigger LEGO models made from me in the future!

Testing out my new makeshift light tent made from PVC pipes, white linen, and three 1600 lumen (5000k, 120 Watt equivalent) CFL bulbs - and moderately touched up in Photoshop. #LEGO
After releasing my giant #LEGO NES controller last winter, some of the negative feedback I received was for my usage of printed labels, rather than building the letters themselves. Now that my big controller will debut at the NY Contemporary Art Fest in a few weeks, I’m remaking the letters from true LEGO pieces! #Nintendo (at Baron von Brunk’s Attic Fortress of Justice)
I love that water effect. I’m going to soon do the same thing with transparent red and orange #LEGO pieces to make faux lava in a new diorama!
Work in progress #LEGO #Zelda diorama. Guess the scene I shall depict! (at Baron von Brunk’s Attic Fortress of Justice)
Gradually tearing apart my canceled #LEGO Great Deku Tree model. This part was the bottom dungeon area with the water passage. #Zelda
Here’s a #LEGO diorama I began building exactly one year ago, but put on hiatus due to other projects, like my display for #Nintendo World Store. This was a multi-stage playset of The Great #Deku Tree from Legend of #Zelda - unfortunately, it was poorly engineered from the start, hence I’m currently dismantling it piece-by-piece.
