This lego chicken is spectacular. The details on the feathers, legs, and head are all spot on. Note the use of Bionicle pieces used to build the chickens comb. Although the little chicken is the star, its distant relative the TRex is great too. This is the creation of timofey_tkachev, and is titled “What has become of us?!” It is a part of an MOC challenge called the Builder’s Battle to “”build an object or living creature from one era which landed in another one, totally different era.”
Today (January 28th) is the start of the Lunar New Year 2017, and the celebrations will last though most of February. This year stars the Rooster. People born in years of the Rooster are supposed to be honest, intelligent, confident, and diverse. All perfect traits for Lego builders. ZiO Chao has been hard at work building a bunch of Lego Lunar New Year MOCs honoring the Rooster over the last month or so. The star of the build is the Rooster himself. A highly detailed and voluminous bird made of Lego pieces. The shapes and feather details are not easy to work with in Lego. Check out those tail feathers!
The bird is accompanied by a few builds of writing. These super complicated shapes are not at all friendly to the squarish Lego brick. What is amazing is just how legible the final MOCs are.
“Did you know there is also a Thor buster, Magneto buster, even Galactus buster? Why not a Chicken buster?” — Peter C.
There have been a lot of Lego Hulkbusters over the past few years, most of them great. It is about time we get the other Busters. First up a Chickenbuster. It looks like Tony Stark woke up late, and grabbed the wrong helmet. He is ready to turn some villains into omelets. Look out. The Chicken Buster is the creation of Peter C, who is having a good time creating new ways to mock the Hulk.
This is the Y-3 Walker Mech and it’s Pilot. It looks like it has been built out of broken machinery, but it is completely made up of Lego. This creation could fit in perfectly with the world of Mad Max. Scavenging the desert waste lands, looking for any oil or scrap. The unnamed Pilot is the real star of this show. Using a variety of obscure Lego pieces, Minifigure accessories, and inventive SNOT techniques, this guy (or gal) looks more organic then most Lego figures. The gas mask is an especially nice build, as is the use of the old Technic gears for the boot cuffs. The other little details are fun too, communicating that this Pilot is a collector of some sort.
A crazy Pilot must have a crazy vehicle. The Walker Mech Y-3 is a chicken style walker barely big enough to carry one person. It has been outfitted with a luxurious orange bucket seat. The whole thing seems to mainly serve as a place to store knick knacks. Check out the boombox, coffee mug, road signs, and even Mia’s signature. This thing is full of awesome detail.
