The Lego Minifigures Series are fun to collect. They always look great too, especially when displayed in a group. One of the best ways to show off your collection is to build little mini MOCs or vignettes. These Lego Minifigures Series 19 vignettes are super cute. Created by zaru_soba, they show off all the different figures and create a mini story. The personality of each minifig matches up perfectly with their scene. The video gamer battlestation, the bathtub wave surfer, the dog sitter, and the retro gardener are some favorites. What is great is that these type of MOCs take relatively few pieces to build.
There are only a few animated cyberpunk films out there that have reached the critical mass. Akira being one of them. From its manga origin to its 25th anniversary Blu-ray there are a lot interpretations of the Akira story. One of the most iconic features from the film is the super sleek red motorcycle that the protagonist Kaneda rides. This red bike is instantly recognizable.
David VII, from MOCpages created this little bike, and included a neat Minifigure of Kaneda too. The Lego version of the motorcycle has been built in the Minifigure scale. Kaneda’s Motorcycle is perfectly represented, and looks relatively easy to recreate.
It’s time for another issue of HispaBrick. Issue 018 is available for download now. This is easily one of the best Lego Magazines out there. Even better, it is free. There is no excuse for not checking it out.
HispaBrick 018 features some great articles about, Kaneda’s Bike (Akira), Miniland Figure Building, Mindstorms, Legostar Galactica, Game of Thrones, Technic, and LDD. Plus many reviews and interviews. The 101 page magazine keeps getting better.
Silvain, from Flickr, has created this futuristic hover bike out of Lego. There is a whole lot of detail and Lego pieces crammed into this little bike. The hover bike has been biult around an unofficial Lego piece, the BrickForge Tan Scooter. The Scooter does an admiral job blending in and looking like the official Lego pieces. There are also a few modified Lego pieces to assist with connections. And, a rare Lego Motorcycle Windshield from the 1980’s. This hover bike is fantastic.
Just remember to wear your helmets while flying the skies of New New York.
The Lego Walking Dead is probably the last theme Lego would ever license. Easily one of the most emotionally devastating comic/television/video game series out there. The creator and author of the Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman, made a wise decision to focus on the living characters instead of the zombies. The scariest moments are always what the humans are doing to themselves. With truly horrific characters, such as the Governor, Negan, and Merle Dixon. But for every memorable villain there are many more memorable “heroes,” and everyone has a favorite. (Lee Everett!)
Here, Flickr user, Project Azazel has created a Lego vignette titled “The Walking Dead ‘DD’ Chopper.” Showing off a Lego Daryl Dixon and his motorcycle. A perfectly assembled scene, completely capturing the character of Daryl. Everyones favorite good guy with a bad guy reputation. He is easily underestimated, even though he may be one of the strongest in the surviving group. Nobody is going to mistake this as anything other then the Walking Dead. The Lego motorcycle may be the star here, it is a great example of how to assemble seemingly useless pieces into something greater.
