The Marquis is a super-detailed, 56-inch-long spaceship fashioned of Lego bricks that comes with its own sci-fi backstory.
Many Lego fanatics are also crazy about science fiction. But Peter Mowry combined both passions by spending the past eight months building a spaceship he imagined for a science fiction novel that features a race called the Hexans.
The Hexan ship is called the Marquis, and in this illustration it's seen orbiting the planet Arkite, the homeworld of the Guardians.
"During their period of outreach," Mowry writes, "the Hexans delivered thousands of agents and artifacts to nearby galaxies, but the results were not at all what they had hoped. Cultures they encountered were much too primitive to be considered peers, so the Hexans adopted a policy of tolerance and noninterference toward them."
It took Mowry about eight months to build The Marquis, which consists of hundreds of Lego bricks. He's planning to add more Lego builds of craft from his fictional universe, and of course finish the novel, which three friends are helping him with.
