Iron Builder 3.0 - Round 2 - Bruceywan vs Derfel Cadarn

Welcome to Iron Builder season 3, round 2, the season of great tryhards! We've weeded out the softies to bring you the pugnacious, proud, and occasionally pungent men of action, ready to prove or defend their honor in the legendary Brick Stadium!


Our challenger this month was transported to us from the past. From ye olde times he cometh to dish out the pain, a la medieval style. And amidst the bloodcurdling battle that is about to ensue, he will have the audacity to stare an Iron Builder in the eyes and say: "ye mad bro?" Please welcome the one and the only Derfel Cadarn from the UK!


Do you remember Paul Revere's Ride? The echos of his cries have found their way to the ears of the Iron Builder who rises to defend his title, the last title that remains of Old Glory. "Give me liberty or give me death" he says, "no one is threatening my freedom to show off my IB status!" And who can blame him for so dearly clutching on to it when he had to fight through a boiling carnage with Legohaulic? He is here, he is ready, he is bruceywan.




Iron Builder is a contest sponsored by the Builder's Lounge group on Flickr. In the past, it has been more of a private contest ( though many many of the excellent entries have seen the light via Brother's Brick and other popular LEGO blogs ) and we have decided to more readily share the MOCs with non Lounge members by posting them as a common thread for everyone to enjoy.


The basic rules of the contest require that the two builder's receive a batch of the 'secret ingredient' part. In this case, the plain Grey Microfig


The two builders have one month to produce as many high end builds as possible to submit to the panel of judges.


The winner of the contest becomes ( or remains ) one of the FOUR Iron Builders.


Current IBs are:

Bart De Dobbelaer - ( defeated DarkSpawn for the title )

Pasakaru76 ( recently dethroned Iron Builder 2MuchCaffeine )

Bruceywan ( recently dethroned Iron Buider Legohaulic )

Si-MOCs ( recently dethroned Iron Builder Tadashistate )


Combatants fight for bragging rights and , more importantly, the winner is built a trophy by the conquered!


Feel free to cheer for your favorite builder , encouragement is encouraged!
