The famous James May’s LEGO House has been destroyed. Really sad, don’t you think so? He made it with lots of love, the LEGO house really looks great and had full functionaly toilet. Now it’s gone, LegoLand didn’t took it because transport prices were too high. What else to say, take a look at the pictures.
Many of us like LEGO, different kind of buildings and structures. There are awesome models of ship models, such as Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier or famous people made out of LEGO. But this one is the biggest project which I ever saw. James May, a toy fan from UK, went far away from the other LEGO builders and modelers. He made a real house of LEGO bricks, in which you can spend some weekend or made a party in it. Very impressive, don’t you think so?
The RX-78 Gundam is the iconic Gundam mecha design, introduced in 1979 in Yoshiyuki Tomino’s and Sunrise’s anime series Mobile Suit Gundam. In Mobile Suit Gundam, it is a testbed weapon for the Earth Federation, when it falls into the hands of Amuro Ray, the son of a weapons designer, who goes on to pilot it in the Earth Federation’s war against the Principality of Zeon. Now you can see it live, Japanese made a real size Gundam RX78 statute, it’s very cool. This Gundam RX78 is 18 metres tall and it has movable head and shoots smoke from some parts. Maybe it is even cooler that this Bumblebee Trasnformer statue.
The RX-78’s initial concept was that of a powered armor, the primary design for Yoshiyuki Tomino’s proposed series Freedom Fighter Gunboy. The series later changed its name to Mobile Suit Gundam and Kunio Okawara was given Tomino’s concept to shape into a finalized design for the anime. Okawara did various designs, including the original design on the right, before settling on the current, more samurai-styled design. One of the common questions asked is why did the enemies in the series keep referring to the RX-78-2 as White while it is a mix of blue, red, and white. Tomino’s response in the novel version of Gundam is that the original design was to be a grayscale machine, made up of mostly white and light gray coloring.
Tom Rhoads, from California, decided to build a Bumblebee replica and he placed it in his yard. If you want to take a look at it you also need to follow some rules. The real size Transformer statue is 18-foot-tall and it is not build with Camaro like in a Transformers movie, he used an old Volkswagen Beetle.
Bumblebee is the “little brother” of the heroic Autobot faction, constantly striving to prove himself in the eyes of the taller, stronger robots that he respects – especially his leader, Optimus Prime. So strong is this admiration toward others, he takes risks that put him in danger. Although a bit of a wise-cracker, he is a capable and reliable messenger and spy, his small size allowing him to go places that his larger comanders cannot. He is highly fuel efficient, has great visual acuity, is particularly adaptable to undersea environments and transforms into a Volkswagen Beetle. He was later reconstructed in a stronger, more mature form as Goldbug.
Bumblebee is established as the smallest of the first year Autobots, but his actual size varies greatly in the various media, ranging from the same size as other Autobot cars to barely taller than a human. His only official height was in an early issue of the Marvel comics where it is stated he is 15 feet tall.
Bumblebee’s primary function in the original Transformers animated series and comics was to serve as the “young” character with whom the youthful viewing audience could identify, and he would befriend the Autobots’ primary human ally – the young son of the Witwicky family (Buster in the Marvel comic – see issue #1 – and Spike in the cartoon) – to this end, a concept that persists into the 2007 live-action film. Although a well-known character because of this, Bumblebee is quite unusual in that, unlike many other Transformers, his name has not been re-used and applied to unrelated characters throughout the ensuing twenty years of Transformers media, due to the loss of the trademark until recently.
