South Korean LEGO artist OliveSeon (previously featured here) used LEGOs to recreate an awesome scene from the movie Pacific Rim in which the Gipsy Danger Jaeger battles the Knifehead kaiju. You know a monster is pretty freaking huge when someone wields a ship as a bludgeoning weapon to fight it.

If you haven’t already seen the movie, we hope this fantastic LEGO diorama motivates you to do so. Visit OliveSeon’s Flickr page to view more of his outstanding LEGO sculptures.

Artist Ken To uses copper wire to create these awesome miniature bonsai trees. "Bonsai is a reflective art, but you could almost see yourself in the delicately wrapped copper wire that Ken uses to construct his miniature bonsai sculptures, which are available to purchase at his rondei.”

Check out many more of Ken’s amazing little trees via his deviantART gallery and, when available, on ebay.
