New Prime Minister of England Lady Margo Hatchet: The Iron Lady

HammersteinNWC's The Iron Lady

“The Year is 1872 – England is a battlefield.

From within the smoking hulk of Parliament a woman has (literally) fought her way to the top.

As the New Prime Minister of England Lady Margo Hatchet seeks to quell the rebellious Unions of the North.

The Proletariat are revolting (at least that is what she says), and the “Iron Lady” is intent on once more making Britain ‘Great’ but this time with herself as Commander in Chief and a puppet Monarch to do her rubber stamp her authority. Privilege and Wealth must be restored at all costs.” — Hammerstein NWC

The Iron Lady is the creation of Hammerstein NWC. This lady happens to be loosely based on the real life Margaret Thatcher. This delightfully creative Lego duo is made even better by a fun backstory. After reading the few paragraphs, a whole story and world is imagined where The Iron Lady can make sense. A few of the details here really add to the whole story too. The gigantic fists, chromed swords, power armor all come together perfectly. Margo Hatchet’s robot companion, Goliath, is also ready to stomp out evil. Just don’t tell it that it has been made out of genie lamps, waiting trays, clockwork, and other random Lego parts.

“Lady Margo is armed with twin powerfists, knuckle duster, The holy sword of Westminister and a Titanium Cricket Bat gifted to her by W. G. Grace himself from the Long Room Armory at Lords”

Löffelschmitt “Pegasus” Mk III – Steampunk Flying Machine

Galaktek’s Löffelschmitt “Pegasus” Mk III - Steampunk Flying Machine

“As the population of Aurora V grew beyond its floating cities, a successor to the “Pegasus” Mk II was needed that could fly without the aid of gravitational anomalies. After extensive study of the planet’s flying reptiles, the Löffelschmitt company developed its iconic Mk III.

Some owners never adjusted to the new-fangled concept of “wings”, and the increased complexity in cockpit controls led to several crashes, forcing the Auroran government to implement its first pilot certification program (known to historians as the Dampfluftschiffpilotenausbildungsreform). On the plus side, the new concept of “lift” allowed more efficient engines, increased range, and the addition of onboard storage space.”

The Löffelschmitt “Pegasus” Mk III is the creation of Galaktek over at Flickr. This little steampunk flying machine is a masterpiece of design. Looking like something out of the mind of an alternate history Leonardo da Vinci. You can just imagine this thing wobbling and flapping wildly while expelling copious amounts of steam. In other words, a fun ride.

Based off of the Mk II, the Mk III improved on every aspect of the design. With a more balanced design and expanded wings, it almost looks like it could fly in real life.

Steam-Bots: The Steampunk Robot

CptBrick’s Steam-Bots: The Steampunk Robot

Little tiny robots are one of the best genres of MOC builds, and when someone changes it up a little it can really stand out. For instance these Steam-Bots don’t look very deadly, but the steampunk robot on the left has a chainsaw for a hand. The choice of color and pieces is really nice, the ice cream for steam and the gold/brown color scheme really helps sell these robots. Hope you didn’t spend all your money on your new top hat and mustache cream, as robot insurance would come in handy here.

Capt. Brick over at Flickr is responsible for these little Steam-Bots: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cptbrick/8741472985/
