Wilbur is ready to fly you to your new deserted island. Tom Nook has promised New Horizons are on their way. Dodo Airlines is a new island service in the popular Animal Crossing video game. This cozy airport is run by two dodo’s, Wilbur and Orville. The pair are ready to take you Harv’s island, your friends islands, and to a variety of uncharted islands. Basically there are a lot of islands. This Lego MOC is the creation of DanielBrickSon. The character is spot on. The rotund 3D bodies are hard to recreate in Lego, but this one has achieved it well. Check out the cool sunglasses, the headphones and mic, and the detailed bird feet. So pack a bag, Delta Oscar Delta Oscar is a go!

This is a Lego version of the Eurasian Pygmy Owl. These cute little owls are particular, they like to hang out in forests, prefer cold weather, and likes the mountains. This Lego Owl probably prefers to hang out on your shelf, or bookcase. This Eurasian Pygmy Owl is the creation of Cyclopic Bricks as an entry into the MOC Wars; category 15: Little Big Animal. The rules for the challenge was to “Build a non-fictional small animal at a large scale. Does not have to be 1:1.” One of the best details is that the head is able to turn, just like a real owl. The little bird is perched on a mossy tree branch, lending the finished creation a more dynamic pose. Check out the skeleton feet around the beak, they are a great detail.

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/
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.

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.

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.
