When you need a good hammer, a new breastplate, some horseshoes, or even a trusty shield just make your way over to your local blacksmith. Josh Nilson created this Lego Blacksmith to encourage your Minifigures to shop local. The whole scene has been built on a standard baseplate. The most striking feature of this build is the shingled roof. Created by layering a bunch of 1×4 flat plates then in a semi random pattern lifting up some of them on one side. It puts stress on the pieces but in this situation looks great. The brick built birch tree looks great, and looks a lot healthier than the official Lego version in the new Bookshop. A few neat details include the classic dragon shield on display, the LED lighting, the ice cream based smoke from the chimney, and a terrible hair cut.
This Lego Brickheadz of the Witcher Geralt is created by Dr. Zarkow. The figure is based on the iconic design from the video games (not the recent Netflix show). An older and more grizzled Geralt which is reflected with the bright white hair and scars. This Brickheadz figure does a great job of capturing the hairstyle and facial hair. It uses exposed studs to reflect the scruffy beard which is a great use of texture. The 2×3 tan flat plate is a perfect piece, and the scar looks good on Geralt. The Witcher armor on the body is simple. The 1×2 grill plates, and the brown and black details recreates the plated leather armor. The only thing missing from the Witcher is his second silver sword. Now I am wondering what all the other characters would look like in this style… The Crones, Uma, or even Zoltan.
Nothing is better than stretching some robot legs and going for a walk. Especially when you are cooped up in a space station all day. This pair of Space Buds is created by bluebrick. Created as an entry into Vignweek 2020, a space themed Lego vignette challenge. These two astronauts are just hanging out in their high tech powered walkers. The walkers are the focus of this Lego MOC, and they are surprisingly detailed. The feet in particular are huge compared to their Minifigure pilots. You would probably have a hard time pushing these over. The legs are topped off with pilot seats. Safety seems to be a priority as each pilot is encased by the walker, they have a heavy duty steering system, and even headrests. The build is finished with a super simple SNOT style base.
This is the Lego MOC called “The Fearsome Dragon Knight” which is created by Thomas Jenkins. It is another entry into the latest Iron Builders challenge (there sure are a lot of these!) which is where you try to implement Minifigure legs in unique ways. Here you can see a whole bunch of them if you look carefully. The shield is ringed in legs, the chest armor is made up of legs, the tan underside of the Knight is made of legs as are its nose, ears, and toes! There are probably a lot more hidden too. Some other fun stuff included the giant sword topped off with one of the new Nexo knights shields, and the yellow lever base pieces being used for reptile eyes. This Dragon Knight looks deadly, and would make a formable boss for a group of adventurers.
This little blue teddy bear is ready to defend its owner at all costs. Hugs are all it needs to keep those monsters out of your bedroom. These Lego Battle Teddy Bears are the creation of Sacha Wittwer. It is an extremely small power armor build. These little builds are a great challenge and they seem to be very popular. Most of the smallest of these suits are around five or six studs tall. This little bear comes in around four studs. It features fully working legs, a claw for one hand, and a huge gun for the other. Even the bears arms fit into 1×1 round studs, making it look like it really is suited up for a fight.
This squad of Lego Warhammer 40k Ultramarines is the creation of funnystuffs. These soldiers are outfitted in some of the best power armour (armor?) around. The iconic blue and gold color scheme is perfectly recreated with Lego. A lot of work has been done here to keep these MOCs small. Each Ultramarine also has unique armor. They come equipped with all sorts of weapons, such as a giant sword, huge energy axe, various guns, and even a powered chainsaw sword. A story can be told based on these little details. Check out the marine with the replacement leg. The build also contains a few custom features, a lot of little decals, and even custom molded helmets for three of the marines.
This Military Crew consists of the X78, the X78/B and the X79. These guys are sporting some of the best power armor out there. The X78 is a larger hard suit, perfect for tanking, that accommodates a Minifigure sitting down. Outfitted with a large rifle this guy is ready to fight. The X79 is the smaller armor, which makes it much more nimble. This power armor comes with rocket launchers and an automatic weapon. Finally the X78/B is an alternate version of the X78. This time accommodating a standing position, and a little bit more armor. These three Military Troopers are the work of Devid VII. Who shows off some excellent Minifigure scale building techniques. Check out how the standard legs are removed and the power armor is incorporated into the torso. Allowing a more realistic appearance (knees!)
From within the smoking hulk of Parliament a woman has (literally) fought her way to the top.
As the New Prime Minister of England Lady Margo Hatchet seeks to quell the rebellious Unions of the North.
The Proletariat are revolting (at least that is what she says), and the “Iron Lady” is intent on once more making Britain ‘Great’ but this time with herself as Commander in Chief and a puppet Monarch to do her rubber stamp her authority. Privilege and Wealth must be restored at all costs.” — Hammerstein NWC
The Iron Lady is the creation of Hammerstein NWC. This lady happens to be loosely based on the real life Margaret Thatcher. This delightfully creative Lego duo is made even better by a fun backstory. After reading the few paragraphs, a whole story and world is imagined where The Iron Lady can make sense. A few of the details here really add to the whole story too. The gigantic fists, chromed swords, power armor all come together perfectly. Margo Hatchet’s robot companion, Goliath, is also ready to stomp out evil. Just don’t tell it that it has been made out of genie lamps, waiting trays, clockwork, and other random Lego parts.
“Lady Margo is armed with twin powerfists, knuckle duster, The holy sword of Westminister and a Titanium Cricket Bat gifted to her by W. G. Grace himself from the Long Room Armory at Lords”
Just look at this guy (Bob?). Look how happy he is. He should be too. With that super expensive mech suit he has on. The Bobsuit is a perfect example of a tiny mech suit in the minifigure scale. All the Lego clips, bricks, and bits come together in a very detailed suit. Working at this scale is not easy, and some of the connections on this Bobsuit look extremely delicate. Still, Bob looks happy and that is what matters.
In the Marvel universe every superhero will have to fight the Hulk at least once. Hulk vs. Thor, Hulk vs. Wolverine, Hulk vs. Juggernaut… the DC Comics superheroes are not immune to the Hulk with Hulk vs. Superman, and Hulk vs. Batman. Even Iron Man has had his share of Hulk fights. In such a fight, Tony Stark usually comes prepared and brings out his custom Hulk fighting armor… the Hulkbuster!
Jonsanpedro has created a project for an official Lego Iron Man: Hulkbuster set over at the Lego Cuusoo page. The Hulkbuster proposed in this project is an amalgamation of many suits. This particular version is an exoskeleton that fits over the standard Iron Man armor.
This build merges together two of the most popular Lego themes out there. Iron Man and Mech suits, creating a huge fan base. This Hulkbuster is fully posable with multiple articulation points. Even the little Iron Man minifigure nestles in and become the “head” of the Mech. These details create a build that has a huge amount of charm and personality. Just look at this photo of Iron Man and Pepper Potts…
