Don’t Look, It’s A Lego King Boo

Don't Look, It's A Lego King Boo

Haunted mansions in the Luigi (and Mario) video game series always seem to be infested with Boos. These poltergeists are actually really shy, and cannot stand to be looked at. But, one Boo in particular has a bit more courage than the rest. This Lego King Boo is created by Vaionaut, who built this little MOC as an entry in the RogueOlympics. He features his trademark crown, and lazy tongue. This King Boo has a tongue that is actually an old style Minifigure cape, his scepter is a Sonic Screwdriver, and even has a One Ring crowning his… crown. So grab a vacuum cleaner and find some courage, this boss is ready to fight.

Lego Baldur’s Gate 2: Shadows of Amn Custom Minifigures

Baldur’s Gate 2 (Shadows of Amn and Throne of Bhaal) is one of those legendary video games. Developed originally by BioWare and published by Black Isle Studios back in 2000. Recently there has been a resurgence of popularity with the release of the Enhanced Edition and various Kickstarter projects. Baldur’s Gate is one of the most successful Dungeons & Dragons PC games ever. Set in the Forgotten Realms campaign, a high fantasy world made famous by the author R. A. Salvatore. BG2 is an RPG full of tiny details, hidden secrets, and memorable characters.

SaberScorpion's Baldur’s Gate 2 Minifigure Heroes

Justin Stebbins, of Saber-Scorpion, has created a whole collection of custom minifigures. Showcasing most of the heroes and villains in Baldur’s Gate 2. Pictured above are minifigs for Jan Jansen, Keldorn Firecam, Aerie, Jaheira, Imoen, the Bhaalspawn, Minsc, Viconia De’Vir, Edwin Odessieron, Yoshimo, and Korgan Bloodaxe.

Most of these custom minifigures are accomplished with mini decals, stickers, and paint. This custom minifigure for Minsc and Boo ( a miniature giant space hamster) is a perfect example of what can be accomplished with such techniques.

 “Go for the eyes Boo, GO FOR THE EYES!! RrraaaAAGHGHH!!!” — Minsc

Even the extremely popular drow (dark elf) Drizzt Do’Urden gets a custom minifig. With some amazing scimitars (from BrickWarriors, a custom Lego accessory store).

With the release of Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition, came four new characters. Custom minifigures for Baeloth the Entertainer, Neera the Wild Mage, Dorn Il-Khan, and Rasaad yn Bashir the monk. Hopefully some day we will see these characters make it into Baldur’s Gate 2.

You can’t just make 15 minifigs without creating villains for them to play with. A custom Lego Sarevok, Amelyssan the Blackhearted, Jon Irenicus, and Bodhi are ready to terrorize the town of Athkatla and the surrounding lands of Amn.

Justin Stebbins has worked hard on these figures, some of them going through many different revisions. See if you can spot the changes between Jon Irenicus, Bodhi, and Amelyssan the Blackhearted.

Dungeons & Dragons based custom minifigures are becoming more and more common. Lego has been releasing new weapons, accessories, and hair pieces in the recent Lord of the Rings and Hobbit theme that transfer perfectly to other fantasy based themes. Hopefully we will be seeing many more of these type of projects.

Make sure to check out all the custom minifigures for Baldur’s Gate II over at Saber-Scorpion. Including previous versions of some of the characters.

Lego Monsters Inc. “What are you talking about? Of course it’s her door. It’s her door.” Mike Wazowski

Dave Shaddix's Mike Wazowski, Lego Monsters Inc

Monsters, Inc. has been a popular Lego MOC theme for the last couple of months. It always helps when a new movie (Monsters University) is on its way. A Lego Monsters, Inc. build is a little bit difficult. With a lot of round shapes and bright colors it can be hard to get the Lego to look right. Mike Wazowski is an extremely animated character which makes him especially difficult. Although, Dave Shaddix found a great compromise and has created a Lego Mike Wazowski and Door vignette. All of the details from the film are here, the door controls say “42,” the little M logo on the hard hat, and the canister all create a very recognizable scene. Also, the excellent proportions between Mike and the door. Now if only Mike Wazowski can find Boo’s door.

MacLane's CubeDude Mike & Sully, Monsters Inc

Mike Wazowski and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan are an unstoppable pair of monsters. Both of them successfully managed to save Monstropolis and usher in a new era full of laughter. Monsters, Inc is one of Pixar’s best films, and its prequel (Monsters University) has recently hit theaters. What kind of adventures did these two monsters get into during college? Maybe it’s time to go watch the film. A tiny Lego Boo would turn this duo into a frighteningly awesome trio.

Angus MacLane has made a whole mess of CubeDudes (A squarish Lego figure), including this Monsters Inc set. So, go check them out on his Flickr page:
