4 Guys 1 Brain
Makers of You Only Lego Twice and Legos Are Not Enough
8-bit trip A tribute to the old 8-bit computer gaming days, expressed in LEGO. What's not to like?
Abston, Church of Christ A church model made entirely in LEGO of course. Its impressive; very cinematic!
Andrew Lipson's
LEGO Page

Australian Film Commission weblink
Australian Film Commission (AFC): The Creative Development Fund is long gone now, but the AFC still provides Government funded support for any fledgling or independent Australian film projects.
BATMAN: GOTHAM KNIGHT An 18 minute long tribute to Tim Burton's Batman films - in LEGO form, of course. Its dark, brooding feel (well, dark and brooding by LEGO standards, anyway) is not too shabby! Site lost!
BLOCK DEATH If there's one thing a race of implacably cheerful plastic drones seems to inspire in people, its the concept of a hideous fate greeted with an indeliably cheery smile. This is the equivalent of Madam Tussaud's Chamber of Horrors as rendered in LEGO. Don't get any funny ideas, kids!
Bluntman weblink Bluntmation: The homemade animated adventures of those local LEGO übergeeks: Bluntman, Dave, Bob and even Steve Irwin. An amazingly prolific site. Hm... Site lost - but he seems to have migrated across to YouTube as Blunty3000. You can catch up with the old Bluntman vids here, or chase down some new game orientated, LEGO based Meatspace series, which was aired on ABC2 here in Australia apparently.

BRIKWARS Put your serious un-smiley faces on, gentlemen - this is the LEGO version of table top wargaming! With a game rules manual no less.
Building Utopolis Architectural application of LEGO® with serious intent. Its very impressive.
Cool Brick Movies Large online "Brick film" repository. Great for a browse, but download bandwidth is capped, so some patience is required.
Fibblesnork LEGO® Guide A simple visual fan guide/database for browsing through the LEGO® product lines of old quickly and efficiently. Its mostly scanned box art with a "Fibblesnork Rating" with little dialogue. For your info, the Magic Portal used a lot of the "classic" LEGO® Space sets circa 1980-85.

Their world map is a wonderful way of pointing to the LUG nearest you. Its brilliant.
