This is a Starry Night Lego Stained Glass Window, created by Smock Man. Based on the famous painting by Vincent van Gogh. The Stained Glass effect is achieved by sandwiching a bunch of transparent pieces between two layers of clear panels. There is a one stud gap between the clear panels to work with. The impressionistic style of the painting lends itself well to be recreated in all sorts of different mediums. This creation can be a little fragile. Most of the pieces are not connected to anything. A good shake would probably move stuff around. The city part of the build is the only part (besides the frame) that is not transparent. This make it feel more solid than any other part of the scene. Everything else is pretty much all transparent Lego cheese slopes. With a few 1×1 round bricks representing stars. The main feature of this build is how it glows in different lighting. It is ironic that Starry Night would look best during the sunny day.
This is a Lego Map of the Faroe Islands (Føroyar) created by Lasse Vestergård. Based on the collection of islands north of the United Kingdom, and south of Iceland. A little over 52,000 people live in this Danish territory. This Lego map was built for an exhibition on the islands in 2019. The build features 3D buildings representing famous landmarks. A few of these building include Tórshavn Cathedral, the ruined Magnus Cathedral, and the red roofed Sandavágur Church. The flag has been recreated in the left corner, a great way to fill in the empty ocean. A variety of boats and airplanes can be found around the map. The finished build is probably 75% transparent blue. To break up the flat texture of the 1×2 plates, 1×1 round pieces have been scattered around. The end result is a very clean looking Lego Map.
This is the Circular Rainbow, also known as Halo, created by Azurekingfisher. The Lego MOC is exclusively made up of Lego tree leaves. In the recent past, these elements have been released in an increasing number of neat colors. Some of these colors are really hard to find. This mobile style creation is balanced and held up with only the thinnest string. The inner core is a clever sphere made out out leaves. The outer Halo is uses an incredible amount of pieces, and are all held together with with their own stud connections. A very tricky build, as the plastic these pieces are made with do not have the strongest grip. It looks like the slightest bump can cause the whole build to self destruct in a glorious and colorful explosion. The end result, which looks like a planet, is actually better for our environment than most Lego creations. As most of these pieces are now made out of biodegradable plastics.
Lego is surprisingly well suited for designing modern furniture and architecture. The geometric and blocky designs match up with Lego bricks. Especially if you use SNOT techniques. With no studs, a Lego build can look photorealistic. This mid-century modern desk is the creation of Heikki M who has built a lot of modern designs. In this build the contrast between the white, brown, and black details really makes it stand out. The added modern artwork on top of the desk is built with a few colorful 1×2 Lego Grills. You can also find a gold plate being used as the base of the table lamp. The white wall and white floor is a simple background, but the added baseboard is a great touch.
A blank page. It could be the beginning of a novel, a new journal, a secret diary, a life study, even a comic page, or it could be a giant ink blot. An all too common problem, even for Lego calligraphy. This Lego MOC is called “Blot” and is the work of Milk Mocer. It features a writting desk, a blank book, pen and ink, a pencil, and an eraser. All the tools need to start your next project. Now is a perfect time to practice your Lego calligraphy. The pen is made up of a bunch of the clicky hinge pieces for the handle, and claws for the pen nib. The book has a great shape made with slopes. Everything here is built using SNOT techniques. For some reason the pink 1×1 round really stand out as the pencil eraser, simple and perfect.
“Rainbow for Children” is a Lego creation by 0937 Superfan. The rainbow painting is a great Lego MOC. Especially the effect used for creating a wrinkled piece of paper. The white plates broken up and angled at various spots works well. The paper looks like it is mostly two layers of Lego, with maybe a few sections of only one layer. This allows the rainbow painting to be on the same level as the paper. The paint brushes and pencil are also Lego creations. The brush tips are all different. The yellow is using a banana piece, blue is a Minifigure helmet feather piece, and the red is a snake. The tops of the paint brushes use soda can 1×1 prints, and a padlock 1×1 print. This rainbow is part of the Lego challenge, #LetsBuildTogether, in which the goal is to create and share rainbows. For this challenge, Lego will donate 500,000 sets to children in need.
“Lets Build Together” is a Lego creation built by Tiago Catarino. A bunch of Lego Minifigures are creating a rainbow together. It is a great message that we as people can come together and build great things. The monochrome Minifigures are all different, not an easy thing to pull together. The bright colors limit what each figure is made out of. They will certainly need to work together to finish their Lego rainbow. This Lego MOC is an entry into the Lego challenge, #LetsBuildTogether. The goal is to build and share rainbows, and Lego will donate 500,000 sets to children in need.
This is Object 6-C, a Lego MOC by Mitsuru Nikaido. This object is five Lego rings that seem to melting. With blue, black, red, yellow and green drips. The drips of color are all instantly recognizable. The circles themselves are very impressive. A bunch of 1×1 blocks with studs on all sides, and a lot of black joints. A very simple, and very effective way to build a circle out of Lego.
Every once in a while you come across something that surprises you. In this case that something is called Object-4, and it is from uran120. This Lego MOC is a bit more complicated than it looks. It is a bit subtle, but right around the mouth the direction of studs change. It helps give this a smoother appearance and a nice flat top. This build is similar to the deeply weird Face Coin Bank. You can find those over here. Weird Lego faces are certainly an interesting theme. I welcome more. I think.
The Fiat 500 is a classic car often seen across the European continent. The two door compact car was famous for its ability to fit easily into tight city streets. It was manufactured in Italy between 1957 and 1975. As the years passed, the smaller design mixed with the curvy styling quickly made this a collectible. All of which makes it perfect as the latest release of the Lego Creator theme.
