This Lady and the Tramp Lego scene is the creation of Lego7. Based on the famous Disney animated film from 1955. The iconic scene of Lady and the Tramp sharing a spaghetti and meatball dinner in the ally behind Tony’s Restaurant is by far the most memorable from the film. Even people who haven’t seen the film recognize this romantic date. The two dogs have been recreated in Lego extremely well. Both capturing their animated appearance in a surprisingly small scale. You can see some interesting part usage here, the hot air balloon pieces used for ears, the teal mechanical clips used for Lady’s collar, and some Lego rubber bands used for spaghetti.
These Lego Figures of Donald Duck and Daisy Duck (唐老鴨與黛西) are created by Lee Nuo. These brick built figures are very close to Brickheadz in scale, the heads are smaller but the bodies are a bit taller. They also feature super short arms, and longer legs. The limited amount of bricks forces you to get creative with what you have. The 1×1 white clips/connectors being used for arms works surprisingly well. A couple of other fun details include the 1×1 red clip representing a bow tie, and the 1×1 white clip/connector on Donald Duck looks like hair. Those clips certainly get a lot of use here. The hats are also great mini builds, and are instantly recognizable on their characters. A great achievement for only 5-10 Lego bricks each.
This Lego bust of Nick Wilde is the creation of Vlad Lisin. Built as an entry into the Bio-Cup 2020, which challenged the designer to build something Canine themed. In Zootopia Nick is an extremely confidant con-artist who finds himself helping Judy Hopps. This Lego creation has the sly and confidant look down. An interesting detail is how the eyelids are actually Minifigure capes; it is unique and it works wells. A few of the other intersting parts in the creation include a handful of Bionicle parts scattered around, Lego Minifigure arms used in the muzzle / nose and cheeks, and the orange hoses used to give the ears some detail. Even with all the weird pieces this fox is looking good.
Everyones favorite animated wallaby has recently returned to earth after being lost in space for over 20 years. Everything seems so different since the 1990s and now Rocko has to adapt to his new modern life. This Lego MOC called “Rocko Rama” is created by Cameron. It is based on the Nickelodeon television show Rocko’s Modern Life. This Lego figure has been built for the 2020 BioCup. The challenge is to build something with the theme of “The Natural World” and “Marsupials.” The end result is completely built out of Lego. That includes the shirt, which was part of the Lego Scala theme. Even the Dodge logo being used for the nose is an official Lego sticker. The designer is really pushing their creativity, especially with the limited part availability in the tan color. You might notice that the hand have fingers built out of Minifigure arms. Maybe someday in the future Lego Rocko can find a Lego Spunky, Heffer, and Filburt to hang out and watch TV with.
In The Simpsons the show started with the focus on Bart, but over time Homer Simpson won the hearts of viewers and writers. What better way to celebrate this iconic character than this Lego Homer Simpson Bust built by Julius von Brunk. This Homer is life-size, which mean this model is a lot bigger than you would expect. The model proved to be more difficult than expected, especially the curved shape of the head. This Lego Homer has all the expected hair, which along the sides is made out of angled Lego horns, and the two strands on top are made out of slopes. The ears in particular turned out well and give the final model a lot of personality. A good example of how a Lego build will change over time is that the original model had a different eye design that even had eyelids. But, at the last minute they were redesigned with the more classic wide-eyed look. D’oh!
“Hey! It’s time to wake up! Don’t make me get loud.” — That is probably what this Lego Alarm Clock is yelling out every morning. This MOC is created by Vincent’s LEGO Creation. This cartoony timepiece features a mix of clock parts. It has digital LCD parts for the eyes / goggles. The round body of a traditional clock. The huge brass bells of an old fashioned alarm. Plus the clock has a mouth, arms, and hands (and large hammers in those hands). All of which are needed for it to perform its job to the highest standards. The shapes here are all well done. The feet have a great design, and the roundness of the clock is great too. It is not a perfect round Lego circle, as a few parts needed to be fastened onto it. I’m afraid what will happen if someone pushes the snooze button!
Stitch is the adorable alien, who just happens to extremely dangerous. This Lego Stitch created by Legohaulic has been updated to reflect both personalities. Compared to the previous build (check it out here) the newer model has been considerably redesigned. The “earth dog” version now has a bigger head, more SNOT building techniques, better fur, and bigger ears. The biggest change is that the model now supports the full “alien” version. With two extra arms, a bunch of extra antennae, and new pupils for the eyes. Lego Stitch stands at seven inches tall, and has thirteen different points of articulation. This new build is up on Lego Ideas (the previous model achieved over 10,000 votes!) so go vote for it if you want to see an official release!
This Lego Invader Zim build is created by MadLEGOman. It is based off the animated show from 2001 to 2002. A very short lived cartoon that ended up having a huge influence on popular culture. Appearing in comic books, action figures, clothes, video games, and even in theme park rides. The story of an alien secretly living among humans as they research how to conquer the world resonated with a lot of people. This Lego MOC features Zim, and his robot servant Gir. Created as an entry into the Iron Builders challenge, the goal of which is to use as many Lego hammers and wrenches in a build as possible. You can find a bunch here, Zim’s antennae, his fingers, and the text of the flaming sign. Can you find all 22 wrenches and 10 hammers? A great detail for this build is the tiny Earth being crushed. A great Lego sphere, that even has oceans and continents.
This Lego “Astronaut” is a creation of R 194. A mouse seems to have found itself on the moon in this comical Lego MOC. The mouse is outfitted an a very bulky spacesuit, with a giant air tank on the back, and room for its ears on top. It looks like the way into the suit is by the giant valve on the top. The Lego moon that the astronaut has found itself sitting on is an anthropomorphized crescent. The yellow frog on the tip of the moon is a fun detail. While the mouse looks like it is trying to find a way to eat a chunk of moon cheese. And, I like to think the viynl record on the back of the spacesuit is a copy of Fly Me To The Moon.
Grab your portal gun and run. In Rick and Morty it is revealed that there are infinite worlds that also have alternate dimensional versions of Rick and Morty. As told in the episode “Close Rick-counters of the Rick Kind.” This Lego MOC of Rick and Morty is the work of MadLEGOman. There must be a dimension out there where everyone and everything is made out of Lego. And their Rick and Morty might just look like these two. The two Lego figures are fully articulated, and can hold many poses. Morty is is made out of submarine propeller housing pieces, and has Minifigure legs for fingers. Rick has a brick built lab jacket and comes with a portal gun. One thing that is easy to overlook is that these figures are a lot taller than at first glance. Ricks head alone is about the size of a fist. These two are ready for some weird adventures.
