A Close Shave With Shaun, Wallace & Gromit

A Close Shave With Shaun, Wallace & Gromit, Lego MOC

After a mishap in the kitchen with breakfast Wallace and Gromit are ready to wash windows and save the day. It’s been a busy day, meeting a very hungry sheep named Shaun. The robot dog Preston is up to no good and Wendolene will need to be saved. Good thing they have a fast motorcycle. This “A Close Shave” Lego MOC is built by grubaluk and hides a nice surprise. This Lego build is an actual working RC Motorcycle. I’m sure Gromit doesn’t mind, but he is sharing the sidecar with a the motor. The Lego RC motorcycle can go forward, and make turns. To help sell the illusion that Wallace is driving, a clever system of gears and strings attach his arms to the handlebars. The rest of the Lego work is great too. The studs being used to represent a rough wool sweater is a great detail. As are the Lego snakes, and wool hat used for details on Gromits face. They motorcycle looks good too! But is it fast enough for Lego Wallace and Gromit to save the day from the malfunctioning Preston?

Lego Goes To The Beach, With Mr. Brick And Friends

Lego Goes To The Beach, With Mr. Brick And Friends

Mr. Brick and Friends go on a lot of adventures. This time these three bricks are on a roadtrip to the beach in their bright yellow convertible. Created by EVCreations, “Mr Brick & Friends at the beach” is a great Lego MOC. The yellow convertible car is gloriously proud of its studs. It features headlights, a windshield wiper, and a green interior. The vehicle is just wide enough to fit three. Mr. Brick and the other two are great examples of mixing Duplo into the Lego system. The Lego Mixels ball joints and printed eye tiles and pieces go a long way to giving these three expressions. Another great detail is that the background beach scene is just a few pieces of paper, and a tan cloth. Simple yet perfect.

A Lego Microscale Train Ride

A Lego Microscale Train Ride

There is something about a train that can capture the heart and imagination. Offering a scenic ride through mountains, forests, farms, and cities. Trains are often a more relaxing way to travel. Even commuter trains tend to put their riders to sleep with their rhythmic movement along the tracks. As a way to combat anxiety, Elemental_Lego built this Lego MOC, called “Train Ride.” An imagining of a steam train rolling through a forest in the midst of fall, crossing across a calm lake. This is an excellent Lego build. The microscale train ride uses some surprising Lego pieces. The most interesting is the Unikitty Lego scarf, repurposed as steam exhaust. Then there is the forest being a variety of hairbrushes, blades, unicorn horns, and other miscellaneous horns. The whole scene is tied together with a well built black base. Now where can a Minifigure or Microfigure buy a ticket?

Put Out Some Fire With The Wooden Fire Engine

Wooden Fire Engine - Lego MOC

A wooden Fire Engine (or Fire Truck) is one of those classic children’s toys. Lego is also a classic toy. Combine the two together and you get a Lego Wooden Fire Engine, which should also be a classic. Created by Jens Ohrndorf, the Wooden Fire Engine is a replica of their own beloved wooden Fire Engine. It even has a few play features such as a movable ladder, removable Firefighters, and working wheels. The SNOT (studs not on top) style design is impeccable. With very clean lines, and well-defined shapes this Lego MOC almost looks like the real thing.

This Lego Delorean Is Almost Outatime

Lego Delorean Is Almost Outatime

The Delorean will always be associated with the film Back to the Future. It is one of the most iconic vehicles in the movies. So it makes sense that there are a lot of Delorean Lego builds. The official Lego Back to the Future Delorean (21103) is an excellent version, but it is a little rough. Most people critiqued the way the hood was broken up into two levels of plates and not smooth. This version of the Delorean, by Łukasz Libuszewski is much smoother. It is a normal version of the car, not the time traveling one. The sloping hood here is very well done, but it does leave how it was achieved up to the imagination. It looks like it can only hold one Minifigure, which is the same as the official release (although with a simple mod, you can fit two). This Lego MOC is so well done I want to see it turned into the more famous time machine.

The Lego Myriapodobus Is Burrowing In 15 Minutes

Lego Myriapodobus, Insect Bus

Myriapoda is the insect subphylum thats full of squirming centipedes and millipedes. So it makes sense that a Myriapodobus would be a bus/train and millipede combined. This vehicle is designed and built by Vince_Toulouse. There are seven segments in this train which include the cab and the caboose. This train is fully detailed on the inside. There is a dinning segment, and multiple passenger segments. The Lego flexible cables for antenna is great, as are the many Insectoid legs used for propulsion. The gold trim is especially nice here, with the gold rocks, gold lantern, and gold lights on the front. A great contrast to all the green. Make sure to catch this Lego insect train, it is burrowing in 15 minutes!

Can’t Miss This Lego Bus

Lego Bus Rapid KL

A good public transit system is a necessity in our society. Taking people to and from all sorts of destinations. Lego people also need to go places, and any good Lego city needs at least one bus. There have been many official Lego bus sets released but none as detailed as this Lego MOC. This bus the creation of The Eleventh Bricks. It is a recreation of one of the Rapid Kuala Lumpur Busses. A lot of custom made decals/stickers help to lend this build realism. Not only is the exterior a great build, but it has a fully detailed interior too.

The whole MOC is fully lighted with headlights, taillights, break lights, and interior lights. This is one good looking Lego Bus, even at night.

The Little Lego Fiat 500 Is Ready To Paint The Town

Little Lego Fiat 500

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.

Chapter 2: The Child, A Lego Mandalorian MOC

Chapter 2: The Child, A Lego Mandalorian Star Wars MOC

“Chapter 2: The Child” is the creation of @ctr_bricks, and is the continuation of their Lego Mandalorian MOC series. This newest Star Wars theme has been extremely popular for builders, and has created a lot of great MOC content. This scene features an appearance from “The Child” also known as Baby Yoda. Here is a very simple and very effective Minifigure scale build. The famous Yoda ears are made of two green lego hands. The scene also features a new custom Mandalorian, four Jawas, and an Alien friend. The star of this build is the Sand Crawler. A very definitive vehicle that has been built on a relatively small scale here. The forced perspective is spot on and really helps make this thing look more imposing then it actually is.
