Somewhere in the U.S., one artist has taken upon himself to beautify, ugly, unrealistic action figures and dolls, turning them into desirable collectibles. Meanwhile, somewhere in Europe, one Ukrainian artist is doing the opposite. Olga Kamenetskaya believes that dolls are unrealistic in representing the body proportion and beauty of a real person and thus, she set out to water down the dolls’ beauty. Not sure if she is doing anything to the body shape though, but I guess, as far as body shape goes, it has been taken care by Lammily. In fact, Lammily does a brilliant job in presenting a doll with a look that won’t mislead our young ones with unrealistic beauty. Continue reading Ukrainian Artist ‘Unbeautify’ Dolls, Repaints Them To Create Realistic Look
Alternate build for LEGO and LEGO Technic sets aren’t new. The LEGO Technic 1974 Lancia Stratos Stradale HF you see here is one of them, BUT it isn’t an out-of-the-box official alternate build you expect.

What’s even more incomprehensible is, the build reuses all the original pieces that came with the 42056 to rebuilt into the iconic wedge-shaped, mid-engine rally monster. Continue reading This Lancia Stratos Was Rebuilt From A LEGO Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS
