Each year the Japanese Lego store clickbrick holds an MOC contest with a twist: All entries must fit within a 16x16x30 cm space! (I'm assuming this is some kind of cultural "real estate is at a premium here" thing!)
Next month we'll get to see the work of contestants for the 7th annual event. Until then, you can enjoy entries from previous years, thanks to coverage by Sachiko Akinaga (who I believe is busy working on her own entries at the moment!).
The entries just get better and better every year. Here are my personal favorites...
Hot manga chick!
Some kind of evil genius
This is presumably the monkey god
Squirrel with a bit of a 'habit'
Totoro and the Cat Bus
Satsuki and Mei meet Totoro at the bus stop
(...arguably the greatest moment in animation history!)
I can hardly wait!
