Take A Spin With This Lego Solar System

Take A Spin With This Lego Solar System

The solar system is a magnificent display of physics and gravity. Huge planets spinning around the sun, each in their own orbit. Somehow not hitting each other in the process. Models that show how the solar system moves over time (an Orrery) can be extremely complicated. This Lego MOC of the Solar System is created by Thomas Rodger. There is a lot of math involved in trying to get the speeds of the planets as accurate as possible. And, that is with out Pluto! The designer has figured that this Lego Orrery is about 96.5% accurate. It uses one power functions motor to drive everything, which adds up to be about 4,000 Lego pieces. There are instructions on how to build this yourself that have been made available, but if you need to buy everything it will cost around $350-$600. Even though a lot of the pieces are common and cheap, there are some extremely rare ones found in the gear rack system. A very interesting note, is that brand new gears are needed. As any wear and tear will effect how this model works. Make sure to check out the video to see it in action!

Why So Serious? — A Lego Joker Model

Why So Serious? — A Lego Joker Model

Every film version of Batman’s greatest enemy, the Joker, has been memorable. But none are as memorable as Heath Ledger’s Joker from The Dark Knight film. With smeared on lipstick, uneven white makeup, and oily green hair. This Lego MOC tries to recreate that look. “Why So Serious?” is a Lego bust of the Joker created by timofey_tkachev. This build uses a lot of olive green Lego leaves to recreate the hair, and it works well. A few dark green leaves help to give the hair texture and definition. The smile is built out of a variety of Lego horns, and a red crowbar, it is a fine detail that gives the model personality. The purple suit is recreated just enough to give an impression of more, while still putting focus on the face. A SNOT style Joker playing card is also included.

Why So Serious? — Joker Lego MOC

This Lego Joker model has a full set of instructions available. The finished bust uses 1,093 pieces, and takes 413 pages to build. The playing card is a separate build, that also has a set of instructions. With 102 pieces and 23 pages. Check below for more information.

Build Your Own Nano AT-ST With Instructions

Build Your Own Nano AT-ST With Instructions, Lego MOC

This nano scale Lego AT-ST is created by NS Brick Designs. A neat thing about this little mech is that it is made out of very common parts, usually the kind you get two or three extras of in a set. You can find lightsaber hilts, the small Lego guns, and even a Minifigures hand in this build. The chicken walker style design of the AT-ST is surprisingly sturdy at this scale, and is not as fragile as it looks. The scene is finished off with a SNOT style rock base, and a little Lego antenna (which represents a Stormtrooper).

NS Brick Designs made a quick set of instructions to show how to build your own nano AT-ST. The whole thing uses just 18 common Lego pieces. The most confusing part is in step two. There are three 1×1 clips and a 1×1 brick. The two on the bottom are facing away from each other and connected by the clip on the top. This is a fun little build

The Octan Office, An Alternate Corner Garage

The Octan Office, An Alternate Corner Garage, Lego MOC

The Octan Office is a Lego MOC created by Łukasz Libuszewski. This Modular style building uses 2,542 pieces. The office is actually an alternate build of the Corner Garage (10264) Modular Building. It uses about 90% of the pieces from the original, and 240 or so pieces have been added. The ground floor features the Octan office and an automotive parts store. A small pet clinic takes up the second floor, and a small apartment gets the third floor all to itself. This Lego build features a lovely roof line, with some very steep slopes and sweeping curves. Besides the three modular floors, the back features two huge window sections that can be removed for easier access. If you find your Modular City has too many corner buildings, it may be time to try an alternate Corner Garage.

Great Scott! A Lego Back To The Future Tensegrity Build

Great Scott! A Lego Back To The Future Tensegrity Build

Emmet Brown would approve of combining Lego and Tensegrity Sculptures. The concept of a system of tension that can support itself, while not actually interacting with itself is a neat idea. They often create optical illusions where heavy things can appear to be floating. This Lego Delorean is perfectly balanced and is ultimately being help up by just three strings. There have been some basic versions of this trick, but lately they have been more and more complicated/themed. This Lego Back To The Future Tensegrity build is the creation of hachiroku24. The theming is great. The base depicts part of a road, and the unpaved shoulder on the side. With Marty on a brick built hoverboard. He is connected to one of the stings, which is a clever way to make him look like he is really hovering. In the end this is a perfect way to display a Lego Back to the Future 2 themed Delorean.

You can find this “Tensegrity Delorean” over here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/hachiroku24/49806179978/

A neat bonus is that hachiroku24 has provided video instructions on how to build this yourself. Showing how the support structure is built, and even showing how to balance everything at the end. Check out the video below, or over here: https://youtu.be/9HjtvKjwe0k

The Modular Bait Shop And Grocery – An Alternate Old Fishing Store

The Modular Bait Shop And Grocery - An Alternate Lego Old Fishing Store

This is the Modular Bait Shop And Grocery Lego MOC created by Versteinert. This whole building is an alternate build for the Old Fishing Store (21310). It uses 1,995 pieces of the original 2033. These type of builds are always really interesting. Being constrained by the parts of another set forces you to get creative. The end building looks like it could be an official Lego set. The Bait Shop and Grocery store are fully detailed inside. The Grocery specializes in seafood, and the Bait Shop is fully stocked for any outdoor outing. The second floor is an apartment with bed, sofa, and even a telescope. Perfect for looking into rear windows. The stairs up from the apartment lead to a neglected attic hiding some forgotten TNT. This is a great modular building, the green planks work well, and the food sign is full of a lot of character.

The Modular Lego Bait Shop And Grocery Rear - An Alternate Old Fishing Store

It you happen to have the Old Fishing Store, and want to transform it into the Bait Shop and Grocery Modular Building the designer has created a set of instructions. They look just like the official manuals, and even cover such topics as what to do with stickers.

The Lego Terminator Will Be Back

The Lego Terminator T-800 Will Be Back

There are so many different types of Terminator robots. You have the tank version, a bunch of different android versions, some are made out of liquid metal or nanomachines, and some are a mix of all the different versions. Now we have a Lego Terminator. This deadly T-800 Terminator was built by Aaron. The finished model is over 500 pieces. Which is enough to give it an amazing range of movement. The articulation in the arms and legs (neck and hands too) gives it a lot of different ways to pose for display. The Lego MOC robot has some fun details. The piston/shocks in the chest area, all the tubes and hoses look great, the red center of each eye, and the pipe based chrome dome looks good. Another great detail is the light tan 1×1 round plate, and the 1×1 round plate with no stud, the two combined create rather believable teeth. I wonder if this Lego Terminator takes a shotgun blast to the chest, if it could rebuild itself? One brick at a time.

This Lego Terminator has a set of instructions you can purchase. A great way to build your own. You can find those and more photos of this T-800 Terminator over here: https://buildbetterbricks.com/collections/custom-lego-instructions/products/instructions-for-custom-lego-terminator-t-800

The Empire Has Occupied Jedha City – Lego Star Wars MOC

The Empire Over Jedha City - Lego Star Wars MOC

In Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the Empire has occupied the holy city of Jedha. Sending a Star Destroyer and a whole legion of Stormtroopers and TIE Fighters. Things did not turn out very well for the city. This Lego MOC depicts just that moment. Titled “The Empire Over Jedha City” and built by onecase. The scene contains over over 5,000 Lego pieces. The land has been expertly built up with a huge stack of plates. The color variety and differing shapes is a great way way to recreate the mesa. The whole scene is topped off with a giant floating Lego Star Destroyer. A few well placed transparent bricks do their best at hiding the structure involved to achieve this effect.

The Empire Has Occupied Jedha City - Lego Star Wars MOC

Even though the finished build is massive, everything is set in a microscale. With most of the tiny building being done inside the city walls. Check out that skyline. It has mini TIE fighters flying around the jumble of rooftops. The tallest building is actually the Temple of the Kyber, which was one of the most important buildings for the Jedi order. Full of history and a major source of Kyber crystals. Jedha City is what really makes this Lego MOC work.

Jump Out Of This Lego Fortnite Battle Bus & Instructions

This Lego Fortnite Battle Bus & Instructions

There is only one way to get to the Fortnite Island and that is to catch a ride on the Battle Bus. A crazy bus loaded up with people who are getting ready to hunt each other down. The only way off is to jump, and parachute/glide your way to the ground. This Lego Fortnite Battle Bus is the creation of Brick Vault. It is the iconic blue school bus. It features locked and booted wheels. With a huge rig holding a massive hot air balloon. This Lego MOC is a tricky design. There are a lot of Lego pieces up in that balloon. Which makes it hard to properly brace and hold it upright over the bus while still making it look like it can float. The bus looks great on its wheels, but it has also been designed to hang from above. That way you can recreate all those crazy characters jumping out (to their doom). In this case Minifigures in a bunny rabbit costume and a scuba suit. Brick Vault even offers instructions on how to build this yourself. There are over 2900 pieces so it will not be as quick as a round of Fortnite.
