An Afternoon Nap With Lego Snoopy And Woodstock

An Afternoon Nap With Lego Snoopy And Woodstock

A peaceful afternoon nap. Snoopy is an expert at those. He is a dog after all. Too bad Woodstock seems to have other plans, but only if he can wake up his best friend. This Peanuts inspired Lego Snoopy and Woodstock is the creation of Tyler Sky. It also features the iconic red roofed dog house, and a little tree. Snoopy is napping, but he can get up and move around too. His head, arms (feet?), and feet are all articulated and can be posed in lots of different ways. If you look carefully you can just make it out that Snoopy’s nose is a black spaceman/motorcycle helmet. Woodstock is perched in his nest getting ready for the day. This duo was submitted into Lego Ideas, but sadly it did not get enough votes. Hopefully they can wake up and try again someday.

The grey, brown, black and white colors are very charming, making this a very popular bird. This Lego Rufous-collared Sparrow is the creation of Luis Peña. Who found inspiration to build while being stuck inside all day. Listening to the birds sing. The Lego bird is very well made with a great build found for the little legs.

Getting Lost With Over The Garden Wall Lego

Over The Garden Wall Lego MOC

“Oh potatoes and molasses,
If you want some, oh just ask us…”

In 2014, the animated cartoon Over the Garden Wall was released right after Halloween. The show oozes with mystery and adventure, as Wirt and Greg are trying to find their way out of the woods. While they are lost they happen to find an extremely helpful bluebird named Beatrice. The whole show is animated in a 19th and early 20th century art style. It is a perfect Halloween/Thanksgiving story, and comes in at just about 2 hours. This Over the Garden Wall Lego MOC is the creation of Revan New. They used some clever vignetting and filters to simulate the look of the original show in their photos.

Some of the details present are great. Check out the teapot on Gregs head, and his side satchel. A great place to hide a Rock, some candy, and a certain Frog friend.

Be On The Lookout With This Eurasian Pygmy Lego Owl

Eurasian Pygmy Lego Owl

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.

This Lego Skeksis Is A Lord Of The Crystal of Truth

This Lego Skeksis Is A Lord Of The Crystal of Truth

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!

Lego Ideas Birds 21301 Box

Lego has recently announced the results of their 2014 Lego Ideas Review. During the video they mentioned that a Lego Birds set would be released in 2015. Just a few weeks later and we now have official images. The Lego Birds will feature 3 of the most common birds. A Blue Jay, Hummingbird and Red Robin. The whole set features 580 pieces and will be released in January 2015. The whole package will retail for about $44.99, not a common price point for Lego. The price to piece ratio is looking really good here. Just a little under 8¢ a piece.

Interestingly, Lego has posted an interview with the project’s creator, Tom Poulsom. The interview has some interesting comments about the design and marketing of this Lego Ideas project. Lets see if Lego will publish more of these interviews on future projects.

“TC: What inspired you to build this model and put it on LEGO Ideas?

TP: The majority of my creations have been replicas of man-made objects (cars, trucks and spaceships) I wanted to build something different, creating something to look organic seemed like a nice challenge. I have always loved nature and being a tree surgeon and gardener I get a lot of inspiration from my job. I was digging a vegetable patch one day and during a quick break I noticed a Robin land on my fork handle. This was the inspiration behind “Bobby the Robin”. I built him that evening and enjoyed building this bird so much that I decided to build some of my favorite birds from Europe. Once I had built seven birds I posted one a day on Flickr. They were a hit! I couldn’t believe the attention I received. A follower suggested I add the birds to LEGO Ideas and here I am now with an official LEGO set containing my Idea.” — Lego Ideas
