Carter follows in the footsteps of other prominent AFOLs who’ve turned their hobby into a job, including Brick Fanatics Magazine columnist Jme Wheeler.
If you’re involved in the AFOL community in any way, or just enjoy perusing the latest LEGO MOCs on Flickr, you’ll probably recognise some of Carter’s work. After all, he’s responsible for all sorts of fantastic builds, including the Xenomorph Queen from the 1986 movie Aliens. And he’s also put together some impressive vehicle builds, such as his Classic Space-themed Blacktron Shrike Interceptor.
According to The Brick Fan, Carter recently announced his new position with the LEGO Group, but didn’t specify the theme(s) he’d be working on. It’s always nice to see builders with serious skills joining the already very talented group of designers in Billund. And who knows – it might not be long before we see Carter at a designer signing event of his own.
For now, head over to Carter’s Flickr account to check out some of his awesome builds.
- I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then.
