Gotta Collect Them All – Lego Fabuland Maxifigs

Lego Fabuland Maxifigs MOC Group 2

Lego Fabuland has a storied past. The Lego theme ran from 1979 to 1989, and had over 100 official sets released. Not quite Duplo and not quite Lego, Fabuland was in this weird in-between space. They were one of the first themes to be licensed out to non-lego products. Including books, vinyl records, and puzzles. There was even an official Lego television program called Edward and Friends that aired in 1987 and 1988. The most recognizable part of the Fabuland theme are all the characters. There are well over 50 of them. They were bigger than Minifigures, and included sculpted unique faces/heads.

This collection of Lego Fabuland Maxifigs is created by Koen Van Der Biest. These MOCs are expertly made and really show off the personality of their Fabuland characters. It looks like Catherine Cat, Bonnie Rabbit, Wilfred Walrus, and Maximillian Mouse make up the first group. Then there is Hannah Hippo with a wheelbarrow. In the next group is Peter Pig, Freddy Fox, Charlie Crow, Clive Crocodile, Bianca Lamb, Peter Panda, and Edward Elephant. (I may have mixed up a couple of them…)

At the current rate, all of the characters will be built in 3-5 years. These animals are on their way be one of the greatest Lego MOCs ever. Check out all the Fabuland Maxifigs or Maxifigures over here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/61911005@N03/32652006037/

Tigers, Elephants, And Bears! The Lego Animal Stackers.

Adam Dodge Lego Animal Stackers

Here is a super fun project. These are the Animal Stackers, created by Adam Dodge. They are based on 3×3 cubes and feature a single stud on top. Allowing them to easily stack on one another. A sort of Lego Totem. This series has 2 sets of six. The North American set contains an Owl, Raccoon, Moose, Polar Bear, Beaver, and a Narwhal. The African set contains a Monkey, Tiger, Elephant, Panda, Rhino, and a Crocodile. There are also a few Stackers on their own, such as the Eagle and Penguin.

These Lego Penguins Have Happy Feet

Schfio's These Lego Penguins Have Happy Feet

Some subjects lend themselves to Lego better then others. These Lego Penguins, built by Schfio, are a great MOC. Who cares about exposed studs when they can look this cute. There is a certain skill involved with getting all the right proportions and volumes correct. And, although the build looks simple the interior of these figures are full of complicated connections.

This Lego Owl Will Drop Some Wisdom.

MihaiMariusMihu's Lego Owl

What kind of questions could you ask a Lego Owl? “Which is better Classic Space or Star Wars?” “Will the Lego Movie be good?” “What minifies will Series 15 have?” “Will there be an official Lego Silmarillion theme?” “Where are all the Lego Pirates?” “Why is Ninjago so crazy?” The list could go on and on… whether of not a Lego Owl could actually answer such questions.

This Owl is amazingly lifelike. With a great focused stare, perfect coloring, and deadly talons. Owl was created by Mihai Marius Mihu.

“Do Not Feed” — Mosaic Window Display

Hilary Leung and Steadibrick's “Do Not Feed” Mosaic Window Display

Hilary Leung and Steadibrick created this wonderful 3D mosaic window display titled “Do Not Feed.” This display is currently up in the Sherway Gardens Lego store in Toronto. It is not everyday that you see people combining a typical Lego mosaic with 3D objects, which is a shame because it can look great. As usual the pixelated 8-bit style design is a great fit with the blocky Lego. Everything is just so cute.

Make sure to check out this project over at Threadless, where you can vote to see it on a T-shirt!
