Personally, I find the mark of a really gifted Lego artist is that his or her work makes you look twice and say, “Wait, that’s made out of Lego?” Renowned English builder Peter Reid (aka Flickr user legoloverman) consistently achieves that effect, for me, by obsessively combining and recombining all those little Lego odds and ends that aren’t shaped like conventional bricks or plates at all—minifig body parts and tools, Technic elements, pneumatic hose connectors, etc. These arms are part of a recent “assembly line” diorama of a future factory assembling his iconic “Turtle” robots.
