There is a whole world living underwater, and there has never been a better time to go sightseeing. Just catch a ride in a personal submarine and enjoy the depths of the ocean. This underwater sightseeing Lego MOC is created by Cecilie Fritzvold. It has been built as an entry for an Iron Builder challenge, specifically to use the Lego Dynamite in new ways. You can find a bunch of those explosives forming a coral reef, there is also a dynamite used for scuba air tanks, and you can find one in the engine of the submarine. Underwater scenes are a great way to show off just how colorful Lego is. This scene in particular is a great example. Check out all the different colors and weird Lego pieces in the corals. You can see some pink Minifigure hair, green artist palettes, green lightsabers, and a bunch of purple tubes.
Lego Minifigures have a variety of jobs. One of the most exciting is exploring the depths of the ocean. You never know what you will find in the depths of the ocean. Maybe a beautiful jelly fish, an octopus, or even a long lost golden anvil. This Lego Yellow Submarine is created by Anthony Wilson for an Iron Builder challenge. The special part for the challenge is the Lego dynamite, which you can find here being used as some sort of coral, the subs engine, and the body of the red octopus. Other great details include the towering kelp made out of Lego leafs, purple tentacles used for sea life, and even one of those rare Atlantis treasure keys. Every thing comes together to make a very pretty Lego creation.
Aurora Sievert is one of the top speeder bike pilots around. Her speeder is the Hurricane III. Known for its minimal design which makes it super fast, although not the safest vehicle. This Lego Figure is created by Eero Okkonen, and called “Aurora Sievert and Hurricane III.” The figure was built first and the end result ended up with a lot of style. The blue and yellow color theme looks great with the red and orange highlights. The design for Aurora was inspired by a Lego windshield and solar panel which would become her shirt. The figure has a bunch of interesting stuff incorporated into it, you can find Lego tires used for ankles, blue and yellow flame pieces make great hair, and a pair of Lego Minifigure hands for eyes. The Hurricane was built afterwards to match Aurora’s design. The speeder bike was inspired by the film, Laputa. Some of the pieces are from the themes Aquazone, Ninjago, and Fabuland. This speeder does not look easy to fly, so a complex weave of hoses and tubes hold Aurora for safety.
Mad Max: Fury Road had a lot of iconic scenes and characters, but the most memorable is the Doof Wagon. A massive truck completely covered in speakers and sub-woofers. A crew of drummers in the back keep the beat going but the star of the show is the Doof Warrior, also known as Coma. A bungie-jumping flaming guitar player leading the armada in battle. This Lego Doof Wagon is the work of tfcrafter1. They used a bunch of Lego 1×1 rounds and 2×2 dishes to create the wall of sound. One of the best details is the bungie cord system, built here with that weird Lego rope with Minifigure grips. The whole truck has been recreated, and even includes a whole set of drummers in the back. As for Coma, the Lego Minifigure skeleton head is a perfect match to the character from the film.
In the science fiction series The Expanse, a group of main characters find themselves in possession of the Rocinante. Previously known as the Donnager, a small warship built by the Martian Congressional Republic Navy (MCRN). The Expanse has a bunch of unique spaceship designs, almost all of which are clunky purpose built machines. This Lego version of the Rocinante is created by Kevin J. Walter. It features the grey color scheme used to hide the ships origins. A lot of the little details have been preserved converting it down to this small scale. Including communications gear (Lego walkie-talkies), the various cannons and PDCs (the little Minifigure roller skates add a lot of detail), and the giant engine (the Minifigure hands are a great detail). This Lego build has a lot of creative part use, check out some of those complicated shapes in the hull. A little hard to see as the flat grey appearance hides a lot of the details, as intended.
Welcome to Reno, the biggest little city in the world. In the post apocalypse a pair of survivors have found refuge in Nevada. Their current shelter is a ruined airplane that they found in the high desert. This Lego vignette is called “The Gate Of Nevada: 2075” and is created by Mr.MOCsProductions. Built as an entry into the Vignweek 2020 challenge. The specifice theme for this entry is: post apocalyptic. The crashed biplane is a great build. It is emerging from the sandy soil. The plane has a lot of detail especially in the wings. The support structure is a complicated system of bars and clips; the end result looks great. There are also a few rubber bands being used to look like some minor repairs have been done. The two Minifigures look appropriatly end-of-the-worldish. They both come equipped with custom guns. The flags hanging from the telephone pole look great, which is helped by a few custom printed flags. The biggest feature of the vignette is the Reno sign. It has an appropriatly retro look to it, created by using some of the new Lego Dots bricks. Hopefully the nuclear fallout has passed, otherwise the future is going to get a lot harder for these two.
This is the 8 Ball, a Lego Pod Racer built by David Roberts. This creation was inspired by the big Lego half arch, and wanting to build something with them. The end result is a round pod with a wing/tail. The Lego 8 is a great example of Lego typography. The middle bit is created with two white 1×2 jumper plates, and a black 1×2 flat plate going the opposite way. A simple and perfect solution to achieve that 1/2 stud spacing. Two giant engines bolted onto the back help to push this racer to the finish line, hopefully faster than pods 1-7!
This Lego street racing scene, called “Street racers’ haunt” is created by Faber Mandragore. Originally built to be displayed at Model Expo Italy, which was canceled this year. There is a lot going on in this scene. Two hot rods are facing off for an illegal drag race. Although the main focus of the build, the background is impressive on its own. A full rural gas station, some of the woods out back, and a huge crowd who have come to see the show. The two speedsters in the front almost look like they are the same model, but after market upgrades have changed their appearance. The grey racer looks like they have the bigger engine, but can they win the street race? In the back are a bunch of Minifigures getting ready for their turn to race, a bunch of betting is going on behind the scenes, and you can even spot a photographer. The gas station has a brick built sign, and they exclusivly sell the classic Octan gasoline. A few stand out details include the power/phone poles, the street light, and the little red arrow showing you where to go.
“Lets Cook” is a Breaking Bad themed Lego MOC created by Mr.MOCsProductions. This scene was built as an entry into RebelLUG’s Vignweek contest. The idea was to build someones lair, and there is no better location in Breaking Bad than the RV. This retro styled RV is a great build. Especially the overall shape. The gentle slope of the front end is perfect. Note all the work done to seamlessly blend the slope into the rest of the square vehicle. The Lego wrench used for the door is another great detail. Two little chairs and a desert themed base finish the scene. The cactuses are well built, mostly made up of 1×2 plates. Finally the tan, and brown bricks simulate the desert outside New Mexico well.
Most cars come with a lot of options, especially sports cars. There are so many terms, and initials that could mean almost anything. This Lego Hot Rod, created by Faber Mandragore, is a Model B, and Supercharged. The scene features the car, a vintage gas pump, and some various mini builds. Hopefully the old Octan pumps have premium gas, you want to make sure everything is running at peak performance. The pile of tires is a perfect mini build, but the Hot Rod is the star. It features a few of the common engine building techniques. The Minifigure pistols, the intake, and the radiator are all popular details. What really sets this apart are the wheels. The exposed steering system looks great and is a surprisingly complicated detail. You can find Lego wrenches, a droid arm, crowbars, and axles. Lego Hot Rods are just as popular as their real life counterpart, and this one is one of the best Minifigure scale ones around.
