Excelsior.
Stan Lee was born Jewish and I’m given to believe that in the Jewish community, instead of saying, “Rest In Peace”, they say, “May Their Memory be a Blessing” to honour the dead.
What a perfect phrase to commemorate the life of this incredible man. His memory comes in the form of the legion of heroes he created that truly are a blessing to those that know them (and let’s face it, who doesn’t know his character nowadays?).
Though he created many iconic, legendary characters, I included Spider-Man in the picture because he is not only my favourite superhero, but also the hero that taught me the most.
He taught me that a nerd (with a passion for photography) can become everything he wanted to be. Not by getting superpowers, but by believing in his own ability and self-worth and being a good person no matter what may happen to you. The reason Spider-Man resonated with me so much wasn’t because of his powers (though I’d be lying if I said it wouldn’t be cool to have them) it was because of the relatable, layered character under the mask. It’s his ability to write a relatable but admirable character beyond the hero that made Stan Lee such an amazing and inspiring writer.
Fantastic, Incredible, Amazing, Mighty and Spectacular but sadly not Invincible. But that’s okay, because he lived a full, happy, fulfilled life and died peacefully, surrounded by loved ones and remembered fondly by millions.
His legacy will live on long after we’re gone, in the hearts, souls, minds (whatever you choose to call it) of those that his amazing characters and stories have touched.
May Your Memory be a Blessing, Stan “The Man” Lee.

#499 MOC of the Week: LEGO Recreation of Chance the Rapper by @this_is_ashton
Today's MOC of the week was sent to me by it's builder Ashton Reagon on Instagram, asking if it could be featured on the blog. I'm always interested in featuring fans of the blog's MOC if they're good enough, so if you have a MOC you're working on send it to us via message or email and it could be featured.
Aston has recreated a portrait of Chance the Rapper, an American singer songwriter, and the likeness is stunning. He primarily uses wedge plates to create the various features but also some unique pieces such as the whip for his left ear. As well as this, the colours he's chosen blend very well together to create the light and dark areas, making this MOC very worthy of it's MOC of the week title.

My Custom Lego Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead, thoughts?

I’ve always wanted to make a Rick Grimes custom so obviously the best time to make it is after he’s left the show👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 I tried to go for a blend of more iconic looks here rather than just the one since I’ve always like the sherif look but also the beard

#497 TIPS: LEGO gears tutorial
Gears and technic in general don't come naturally to a lot of builders, including myself, because the techniques and construction are a whole new form of LEGO building that takes experience and practice to get used to.
I was researching for the automatic part sorter I'm working on and found this very useful tutorial by Sariel’s LEGO Workshop. It's a great read to explain the very basics of LEGO gearing but also including a lot of detail if you're looking to use complex gearing and technic in your MOCs.
Link for the guide will be in our bio for the next 24 hours.

Automatic Part Sorter: Week 7 update
This week I started work on the input system for the tile sorter. This comprises of a hopper that regulates the flow of the tiles, by using a wide input and small output. There will be an opening and closing output that will control the tiles input into the conveyor belt. As well as this, a bopping mechanism created using a cam shaft will prevent any blockages. Thanks to @playwell_bricks for helping me with this plan.
I also experimented a little with worm gears, which are very different from standard gears and because of this, they’ll be very useful.
Next week I hope to have a working prototype for the cam shaft because all of the parts I ordered have now arrived.

#496 Favourite Brick Friday: 3873 Technic, Link Tread
This week's favourite brick is the technic link tread, a piece where multiple are usually connected together to form treads, chains or conveyor belts. However, their unique shape and holes present on the piece lend themselves to another incredible use.
These holes are the perfect size to connect to the bottom of a 1x3 or 1x4 plate/tile, which therefore lends the piece for use in curved techniques. This is because the treads can be hooked around gears and a circular building surface is created, that Mansur Soeleman aka @lamborghiniwafflesauce has utilised in his 'The Hungarian Parliament' MOC.
