The Skeksis are the main villains from the movie The Dark Crystal. They need the Crystal of Truth to retain their immortality. This Lego Skeksis is an immortal MOC created by Hongjun Youn. The model is a great representation of the puppets from the film. They recreate the bird-ish look perfectly. Using only official Lego pieces and no custom bricks. The use of Bionical pieces are a great fit. As is the use of the cloth and linen pieces to help fill out the body. It is really easy to underestimate the volume of this Skeksis, the bad/curved posture makes this thing a lot wider then expected. One really great detail is the staff. Check it out below!
This 2×3 Tile Lego Font is the creation of Milan Sekiz. This Sans Serif is made out of flat plates, and uses some of the newer parts from Lego (such as the Modified 2 x 3 Pentagonal Tile). Not only are the standard english 26 letters included but some basic punctuation and numerals have also been included. Too bad the X is hanging out all by itself, it sounds like it didn’t fit in with the others… poor X.
This great Lego MOC is titled “A family has bought a new TV during the 70s” and is the creation of Johan Alexanderson (Jalex). They ended up using some reference photos to make sure the 1970s feeling was accurate. The end result is uncanny. Especially the old console television; I can just imagine the wooden walnut veneer. The packaging/box is also a stand out detail. It would probably take a whole Lego Minifigure family to move this TV. It also looks like a super reductive version of the famous Vincent van Gogh painting “The Starry Night” hanging on the wall.
“The idea for this creation simply came from memories when I was a kid and the exciting moment when my family came home with a brand new TV.”
Lego Racers is one of those early 3D games from the late 90s. Specifically 1999. Even though this is around the same time Lego Star Wars was released, the game only features original Lego themes. Choose from a selection of drivers and racers from classic Lego themes such as: Pirates, Space, and Lego City. You can even mix and match, and create your own racer. Which you will need to do, as you will eventually have to go up against Rocket Racer.
Lazy Game Reviews, or LGR, has put together a great eight minute video showing off the whole game. LGR even offers some tips on how to get the video game to run. Check it out here: https://youtu.be/qNBFNFbFlNo
Draganpopart has revealed a couple awesome Lego collage art pieces. The classic Lego spaceman is 20″ x 16″ on canvas. Using various mediums; such as watercolors, acrylics, and vintage book prints. There is also the iconic space console, which is painted on a 14″ canvas using the same methods and materials as the spaceman. The detail achieved on these art pieces is great and would look great hanging from any Lego fans wall.
The M577 APC, or Armored Personnel Carrier is the perfect vehicle to take to battle against Aliens. This Lego MOC has all the features including Turret, RE700 Rotary Canon, and DSGR Smart Missiles. There is even room for a small Minifigure crew. Nothing can stop this APC, it is explosion and bullet proof, and can roll over all sorts of terrain. Just make sure not to spill acid around it. This vehicle is the creation of Rick Brickham, and is made up of about 750 pieces.
Lego has revealed the International Space Station (21321). This Lego Ideas set was originally submitted by Christophe Ruge. This is one of the larger offerings in the theme with 864 pieces. The complete set encompasses the ISS, Space Shuttle, Soyuz, SpaceX Dragon, Starliner, and a few more spacecraft. There are also two microfigure Astronauts ready to do science. One of the coolest features about the set is that there are no stickers, everything is printed. Including all of those solar panels. The whole Space Station will retail for $69.99/£64.99.
“For over 20 years, the International Space Station has welcomed cooperation from different nations to achieve common goals that benefit all mankind. The largest spacecraft ever built, it continues to unlock discoveries not possible on Earth—and push the boundaries of human space exploration further than ever before.”
“So long, and thanks for all the fish.” Those famous last words as all of the Dolphins abandoned Earth. A moment made famous by the The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. This Lego MOC depiction is the creation of lego.my.yougo. Showing how much you can do with a few pieces, 40ish it looks like.
I Saw Spider-Man Today, is a Lego MOC by Barthezz Brick. The scene features three huge buildings, a few streets, and a whole lot of details. Everything looks weathered, accomplished by using various misaligned and ill-fitting Lego bricks. Giving the whole setting a very New York feel. Especially the more gritty version from some of the comics. There is a lot going on in this build. If you look carefully you can spot Spider-Man, a Sushi stand, Motorcycle, newsstand, and even a saxophone player. Everything has been brought together by the excellent use of custom decals and stickers. Especially the Coca-Cola sign.
Barthezz Brick has even provided a short story, setting the scene:
“The scultz gang robbed their third bank this week. I chased one of the robbers for three blocks when he tore his money bag on W 37th street. He lost more than half of his loot. I doubted, should i secure the money or should i keep chasing the bloke?
I decided to keep track on the scultz gang member, but then all of a sudden i saw spider-man. He came out of nowhere and webbed the guy in the middle of a busy crossroad. It was amazing!! Finally when the police arrived they arrested that son of a b*tch and took him to the nearest police station.
It was amazing to see my childhood dreams came true. Spider-Man you’re my Hero!”
