Can You See What I See? On A Scary Scary Street …

On A Scary Scary Night, On A Scary Scary Street… Lego MOC

Can you see what I see? …A frightened cat on a window sill… This little village street is hiding a lot of secrets. “On a scary scary street” is a Lego MOC created by Caleb Saw. In the picture book “Can You See What I See?: On a Scary Scary Night” there are incredibly detailed images with hidden puzzles centered around a spooky story. The scary street Lego MOC is an extremely accurate recreation of one of those pages. A lot of time and thought has gone into preserving the hidden objects. This Lego scene has even recreated the lighting from the original. The buildings and street are lit up with a bunch of warm LEDs. This gives the impression of a recently abandoned street. There are a lot of really well done details here, the brick built road, the multiple street signs, the variety of window designs, and ominous dark cave. Even the digitally added sky and moon match the book.

Glass Dome Lego Castles

Glass Dome Lego Castles

These glass dome Lego castles are created by Petronel22. The presentation of these Lego MOCs is above and beyond most creations. Each castle fits inside of an Ikea Härliga Glass Dome, this make them feel like a unique (and fragile) miniature world. Plus they get the added bonus of not having a dust problem. Another way to present these is that each castle has also been digitally composited against a background. These images almost feel like travel posters. The red roofed castle is called Tar’Cen Burg. It occupies all the available room on top of a rocky island. There is even a little Lego stream descending into the ocean. The yellow topped castle is called YuDita has been built on top of a grassy hill. Both of these are great micro scale castles. Each of them feature a lot of well built towers, keeps, bridges, and other small buildings.

There Is A Little Bit Of Magic In This Lego Town

There Is A Little Bit Of Magic In This Lego Town

This Lego build called “A Little Bit of Magic” is created by Midwest Builders. It is a part of the Guilds of Historica, specifically from the west, the Guild of Avalonia. A community of builders who are creating a whole fantasy world. An active group that is always adding new characters, maps, and stories. This scene is a streetscape of the town called Albion. Everything pictured is a jumping off point for stories. The local Flower Merchant seems to know ancient magic. A knight on horseback notices the magical display of talent. And a mysterious rogue seems to watching everything. Some of the stand out details include the brick built tarps / canopies, the lovely signage at each merchant stand, the peeling green paint on the inn, and all the magical trinkets strung up. You can even spot the eye of Sauron. The use of some hidden LEDs is a nice touch, and brings magic to life in this Lego MOC.

Guard Duty At Tensegrity Tower

Guard Duty At Tensegrity Tower, Lego MOC

Guard duty at Tensegrity Tower requires a certain amount of courage. To save on construction costs a local wizard can be employed to help build your next tower. Saving at least 50% of material costs. Just be on the look out, as any type of lateral force could knock you over at any time. Tensegrity Tower is a Lego MOC created by David Roberts. This is a very clean build, focusing on keeping your attention on the tower. The scenery is just a few plants, a couple of trees, and a short stone path. The addition of a foundation gives this tower a certain plausibility, and creates a target to attract your eyes to the center. The yellow stonework of the tower is a nod to the original castle theme. With just three chains holding up the upper portion. There must be some sort of magical portal leading up to the top, otherwise the guard is going to have a hard time getting down.

Which Side Will Prevail In This Lego Battle Of The Seasons?

Which Side Will Prevail In This Lego Battle Of The Seasons? Intro.

Four powerful mages have been fighting it out, and it has come down to one final battle. Each mage is fighting to protect and expand their own season. This is a Battle of the Seasons, a Lego MOC created by Blue Builder. The whole scene took over four months to build, but took over two years to plan. With 73 Minifigures this battle will change the world. The idea for this build was inspired by the Heroes of Might and Magic video game series. Real time strategy games that are well known on the PC. The spring warriors feature humans, fauns, fairies, and even a dragon. The summer time is mostly humans with pegasus and other winged creatures. Fall warriors include snakes, wolves, minotaurs, and orcs. And, the deadly winter army is mostly undead, skeletons, vampires, and ghosts. The whole scene is centered around a magic scroll, setting the scene with some text: “In a battle of might and magic who will prevail…”

A neat feature in this Lego MOC is the lighting effects. Hidden behind the scroll, in the center, are multi-colored LEDs. They shine up through the transparent bricks, representing magic rivers. All combining in the center where the winners crown is perched.

The Deadly Dragon Knight Is Ready To Duel

The Deadly Dragon Knight - Lego MOC

This is the Lego MOC called “The Fearsome Dragon Knight” which is created by Thomas Jenkins. It is another entry into the latest Iron Builders challenge (there sure are a lot of these!) which is where you try to implement Minifigure legs in unique ways. Here you can see a whole bunch of them if you look carefully. The shield is ringed in legs, the chest armor is made up of legs, the tan underside of the Knight is made of legs as are its nose, ears, and toes! There are probably a lot more hidden too. Some other fun stuff included the giant sword topped off with one of the new Nexo knights shields, and the yellow lever base pieces being used for reptile eyes. This Dragon Knight looks deadly, and would make a formable boss for a group of adventurers.

The Quest – A Lego Video Game Build

The Quest - A Lego Video Game Build

Put on some headphones, pull up a chair, and start up a game. It’s time to go questing. Playing games with friends is one of the best ways to spend your spare time. This Lego MOC, called “The Quest,” is built by Joe. This Lego battlestation features a keyboard, mouse, speakers, and a monitor as seen from a first person view. The video game scene is the main focus, with a group of five friends outside huge castle walls. The brick built sunset is a great background. Then there is the keyboard. If you look you might notice that all the main keys are actually Minifigure legs / pants. A creative use for these pieces (although showing up increasingly in interesting ways). The lego hand is a great detail, and it even features purple nail polish. And, finally, a weird duck model which is a great MOC all on its own.

I Have Lived A Thousand Lives — Lego MOC

I Have Lived A Thousand Lives — Lego MOC

Brick Ninja has created a Lego MOC based on a quote by George R.R. Martin: “I have lived a thousand lives and I have loved a thousand loves. I’ve walked on distant worlds and seen the end of time. Because I read.” This Lego MOC is the physical representation of reading a book. It can transport the reader to an imaginary location full of new ideas and impossible situations. That is why we like to read. In this creation the greeking of the text has been done well. Representing words, without actually having to find a way to make them in Lego. The castle is well made with a great SNOT design. It is very reminiscent of old castle sets from Lego.

Seeing Double At Symmetrio’s Workshop

Seeing Double At Symmetrio’s Workshop - Lego MOC

This Lego MOC called “Symmetrio’s Workshop” is the creation of Markus Rollbühler. Built as part of the “Style It Up!” challenge put on by InnovaLUG, where the specific goal was to build with symmetry. Symmetrio’s Workshop is a mysterious place where you will be seeing double everything. Everything is so exact, it almost feels like a spot-the-differences or hidden-items challenge. Not one (to my eye) item is different between the two sides. All of this has been built using the SNOT style. Most notably with the walls and windows, there sure are a lot of tiles. Ultimately, there is an insane amount of fun little details hidden away in this scene. For instance, look at the treasure chests for the desk legs, the patterned floor boards, the buckets of crabs, and even matching mouse traps. The question now being, are there two mice, or just one really clever one?

The Prancing Pony – A Lego LOTR MOC

The Prancing Pony - A Lego LOTR MOC

Located in Bree, The Prancing Pony is one of the few friendly places for Hobbits. A lot happens in this small inn, the Hobbits finally meet up with Aragorn, and have a narrow escape from the Ringwraiths. This Prancing Pony inn has been recreated in Lego by Shield-and-Sword Bricks. The scene, from The Lord of the Rings, appears to be the moment that Aragorn (Strider) is helping the Hobbits escape from a trap. The details on this Lego MOC are all top notch. The rough dirt road and ground using studs to contrast with the smooth plaster and wood structure works well. Make sure to check out the Lego whips being used for some wooden detailing, and poles being used for diagonal beams. The slightly uneven 1×2 flat grey plates represents the stonework. It manages to look poorly made, and yet sturdy too.
