This cute little Lego Elephant is created by Johan Hendrix. These tiny builds are always a lot of fun. It is all about the challenge of creating something recognizable with such few parts. The Baby Elephant is built for the Polybag Competition hosted by Brickset. The goal is to create something that could be sold as a Lego Polybag. Those small plastic bags sold near cash registers in stores. The Elephant comes in at just 29 pieces. The good news is that if you want to build your own, it won’t take much to find all the pieces. The expressive eyes gives a lot of personality to the Lego. And, the use of an elbow tube is an inspired choice for a trunk.
This Lego build of Toothless is created by CheeseyStudios. The designer noticed they had a lot of black pieces in their collection and set on a project to create something with them. The settled on a creature and from there built the famous dragon from the How to Train Your Dragon films. This version is based on the younger appearance of Toothless. The build took almost two years to finish. There are some surprising details in here. You can see that the tail is made out of a bunch of Lego tires. A bunch of tubes, hoses, insect parts, and Bionicle plates can be found in the face. There is even the forked tongue. But, most impressive are the giant brick built wings. They are at least thirty studs tall. This build is bigger than it looks, there are a lot of pieces in those feet. Now imagine if this was the bigger, 30 year old Toothless.
In the Fallout Wasteland there is nothing better than a Nuka Cola (well maybe some RadAway). This incredibly popular soda pop can be seen all over the land. Lego builder Keith Reed has created this scene, and describes it as such: “A family trying to reach a bomb shelter, takes up refugee in a delivery truck.” The Cadillac style sedan is an excellent rusted Lego car. The use of the different greens mixed with tan and brown works well. It adds a lot to the story; you can guess just how long these people have been trapped in the Wasteland. The blighted landscape is well built, the stagnant green water and the odd mushrooms immediately give off the feeling of sickness. The Lego Nuka Cola truck is appropriately rusted out and even includes a brick built logo on the side. Inside the truck, is the sad realization that the family did not survive the apocalypse. One of the best details in this Lego MOC is the road, the broken up pot holes are expertly created with SNOT techniques, and provides a great contrast to the rough (and stud filled) landscape.
You don’t get to see much of the day to day life in Star Wars. What does everyone do on their time off? Maybe they just hang out in their room and relax. This Lego Star Wars Cyberpunk Room is created by Aubrey Beelen. They wanted to merge Star Wars with Cyberpunk, while keeping the spirit of both. The end result is this amazing MOC. Its biggest feature is the custom lighting. Fully built-in and hidden LEDs of different colors stand out in the dark and help to set the mood. The cityscape outside the two windows sets the scene while adding some depth. There are some nice details in this packed creation. You can find a cute rubber ducky in the shower, a collection of helmets, a gun collection, a scary spider, and a hydroponic garden. There are a lot more details which can only be seen when the lights are on. You almost want to see two of these side by side to see everything.
The “Destroyer Horizon” is a Lego Starfighter created by ZCerberus. It is a massive build that uses a lot of orange pieces. A relatively rare color in the world of Lego. In addition to the general color choices, the brown stripes look great. Designed with SNOT techniques you would be hard pressed to find any exposed studs. While this Starfighter is patrolling outer space the crew can keep themselves entertained. This creation is hiding a huge secret. Packed into every open space in the interior is a full gaming PC. The ship can transform and reveal a built-in 1080p LCD screen. Powering the ship is a SFX Power Supply, Ryzen 2400G Processor, an B450 ITX Motherboard, and multiple fans. There is even a completely hidden power button along the bottom. The end result is an impressive rig, especially since it has to fit into a Lego MOC. A perfect creation to play Homeworld, Star Citizen, and the new Lego Star Wars game.
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.
This Lego Lobster Mix Platter is created by herbert lee. It features a huge steamed Lobster, a side of Mussels, and Tuna Tartare on Avocado Toast. The platter also has some garnish, lemon wedges, and ice. The whole scene is built on top of a platter. The platter itself uses a lot of rare silver Lego plates. But the main star of this build is the lobster. A creation like this has a lot more detail than you might notice at first glance. Each part of the body is segmented, the giant claws are built with ball joints, and the antanee / feelers can be adjusted. All of this means that the Lobster can be put in multiple poses. Super helpful if only it wasn’t being served for dinner.
Sushi Rolls can be served in many different ways. From a few rolls on a plate to a grand platter served on a wooden boat. This Lego MOC created by Anakin Skywalker 2012 shows off Sushi served both of those ways. The big bamboo boat is created out of Lego and holds a lot of different rolls. There is even a white flower, and garnishes scattered around. The ship come with a set of Lego chopsticks and a sake set. The sake set uses the new Lego hot air ballon pieces which works out great. Besides the boat, the rolls can be presented on a small wooden plate. The addition of a soy sauce dish is perfect in its simplicity.
Telescopes come in all sorts of different styles. Some of which are amazingly complicated to get set up. Luis Peña has created a small collection of Lego Telescopes. The perfect accessory for your Minifigures to gaze at the stars. Included in this collection are (from bottom left): a Galileo-type Telescope, Newton-type Telescope, a Schmidt-Cassegrain Computerized Telescope, and a Classic Dobsonian Telescope. Each of these mini builds are instantly recognizable, which is a great achievement working at this scale. It looks like these little amateur astronomers are ready to pull an all nighter. The Minigiures just need a Lego solar system to go along with them.
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.
