    One thought on “Steampunk LEGO

    1. Christopher Mclean on said:

      I was really excited going into this, and I enjoy steampunk, love Lego and can see how combining to two should result in some amazing work. Unfortunately I have to say I was fairly disappointed with this book. I think my primary issues come down to presentation. I love the idea of a bumbling general touring around the world and reporting back to the queen on the models. Unfortunately this premise while fun doesn't allow for any space to describe the technical details or processes behind any of t [...]

      What a cool book! Steampunk Lego creations from master builders all over the world. Each is beautifully photographed and accompanied by a quirky, informative blurb written in script (this is not really a book for young Lego fans as much of the book is written in fancy script and other artsy fonts). The book is an insightful read, too, giving us a wonderful Steampunk history lesson. For Steampunk fans, for Lego fans, for photography fansis book will please many!

      Written as if these models were real devices, depend on how much you like stream punk

      I'm not into steampunk, but I have liked this book.And, finally! A lego book that is not just a replacement for the official lego booklets.

      Everybody loves steampunk! On the off chance you’re unfamiliar with the term, steampunk is essentially an alternate 19th century, a blend of fantasy, sci-fi, and historical adventure, rife with steam power and clockwork mechanisms. Fanciful steam trains and airships abound, while goggles, monocles, and top hats are favored on the fashion front. Perhaps not surprisingly, steampunk lends itself well to Lego building blocks, as evidenced by Guy Himber’s new Steampunk Lego collection. This delig [...]

      This book is similar to Beautiful Lego in one aspect, it is not an instruction manual, but rather an idea book. First, the author explains a little bit about what steampunk is. Then there are sections by type such as trains, cars, and mono wheels. On each page is an explanation of each item using very big words and some history. Some of the pictures are blurry which is unacceptable and causes it to lose a star.This book does have a lot to offer for junior high age kids and up. It is too complica [...]

      This is an interesting approach - a collection of custom steampunk lego sets ranging from airships to submarines, which are described in character by Sir Herbert Jobson. The book comes across as a Whole Earth Catalog kind of thing, with lots of call-outs and references to things as diverse as Up and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and is interesting to read. The only real failing is that the lego designs seem to get short shrift - they're beautiful but most only have one picture of them, so y [...]

      The constructs showcased in this book, all Lego steampunk scenes and objects, are wonderfully creative. Some are reproductions of items from books or films (though sometimes with a twist, as in the steampunk X-wing), but mostly original (such as a flying pagoda). There are several pages of miniatures, in which The book itself is beautiful, presenting the models with "in-character" comments, as though explaining them to Queen Victoria.However, if you're hoping to build any of these models, you wo [...]

      This book is awesome. I would highly recommend it for anyone who is a fan of either Lego or Steampunk. Although it is mostly just fun to flip through and look at all the Lego creations the book also includes descriptions of each written in the form of letters and reports to Queen Victoria. Includes everything from trains and airships to mysterious creature. The only thing that could make it better would be including plans for at least some of the builds, but you can always study the photos and c [...]

      An art book, not a LEGO building book! If you're looking for a 'How To' or instructions then you won't find it in this book! This looks good on a coffee table in your Anti-Hipster Geek Den or on your computer table in your room in your moms basement next to your D20's! I checked mine out at my local library and was pretty wowed by the pics, I showed it off to a few people and then promptly returned it. Don't get me wrong was beautiful and imaginative but it's not very functional! Can't really do [...]

      some clever robots, clockwork creatures and steam punked Star Wars puns.

      Not, in fact, a how-to manual.Kinda neat to flip through, but meh.
