Every full moon some people turn into Weretoads. For one crazy night, every fly around is in danger. The Lego Weretoad MOC is created by Letranger Absurde. Built as an entry into the MOC Wars, where the challenge was to create a Lycanthrope type character that is not a dog or wolf. The end result is a weird mix of human, toad, and monster. The brick built figure features some really interesting parts. You can find Overwatch themed shoulder armor used for the chin/neck, a car hood piece used for the torso, various gray silver/gold bricks in the arms, and even a red horn used for a tongue. A lot of joints feature a full range of motion which means that this Weretoad can be displayed almost any way you can dream of. Just make sure any flies hanging around are safe.
This Lego Bug is created by Aiden.Builds, and it is one ugly cute bug. The design almost looks like this thing could fit right in with Pokemon. The bug features a huge golden eye, two tiny rounded fangs, and it has six legs (so it is not a spider). Two huge plastic wings (from the official Ant-Man set) fit in perfectly. The stacked brown dishes used to create the head is a very interesting technique. Not quite sure how they are connected… but, the end effect is amazing. If you happen to see one of these ugly cute bugs hanging around your Lego collection make sure not to step on it.
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.
Babu Yoda is the biggest (hah!) thing to come out of Star Wars in the last few years. There are so many ways to build a Lego figure of this adorable alien. This Baby Yoda is a Lego MOC created by car_mp. This brick built figure has a few options for display. The ears, mouth, fingers, and arms can be moved. This means you can pose him however you want. Baby Yoda can even hold some delicious soup. This version has a rounder face than some other creations. It makes him look a bit more cartoonish, and a bit more cute. The child also comes with a nice tan robe. The lighter tan Lego pieces give the clothes some welcome detail, especially in the collar.
Lego had a theme back in 1970s and 1980s called Fabuland. A kids theme that features a village of cute animals. Well over 100 sets were released in those two decades. It was extremely popular in Europe, where they had their own TV show, puzzles, vinyl records, and all sorts of merchandising. There were two defining features of the theme, bright primary colors, and the Fabuland figures (bigger than a Minifigure, but not as big as a Duplo figure). Today, Fabuland is enjoying a long retirement. But, with the release of Animal Crossing on the Nintendo Switch there is new interest in the theme.
This Lego Fabuland Village is called “Bring back Lego Fabuland” and is created by Lasse Vestergård and Anne Mette. The neat thing about this creation, is that it comes in two parts. They have created a village using modern Lego building techniques and colors, and they have built an exact clone but using techniques and colors used in the original Fabuland sets. A lot of work has gone into making both versions the best possible.
Both villages have the same features. It is like looking into another dimension where everything is the same but different. The main street has cars, motorcycles, and a double decker bus. The town has a large collection of houses, including a windmill and a gas station. Everything is positioned around a crystal clear blue river with a beautiful Paddle Boat (Paddle steamer). There is even an airplane flying over everyone.
Reviving the Fabuland theme would certainly be a hit. The animal villagers all have a lot of personality and Lego made sure that a lot of them have a backstory. Each one is unique and has their own name. The elephants in particular are a favorite.
Even robots need their pets in this Lego MOC called “A Boy and his Dog” created by Ivan Martynov. Built for the Two of a Kind contest. Both of these robots have a lot of personality. The robot boy is a cute mini build. A few of the interesting pieces include the tiny elbow pieces for feet, the orb piece for a hand. The face is well done, but who knows what Lego pieces are being used. The robot dog is interesting as it has some complicated feet. The variety of transparent orange pieces used for the eyes almost make it seem spider-like. The two of them together offer a great contrast between different styles of robots. Based on their size, I’m sure that the robot dog will be walking the robot boy.
This cute little Lego Elephant is created by Johan Hendrix. These tiny builds are always a lot of fun. It is all about the challenge of creating something recognizable with such few parts. The Baby Elephant is built for the Polybag Competition hosted by Brickset. The goal is to create something that could be sold as a Lego Polybag. Those small plastic bags sold near cash registers in stores. The Elephant comes in at just 29 pieces. The good news is that if you want to build your own, it won’t take much to find all the pieces. The expressive eyes gives a lot of personality to the Lego. And, the use of an elbow tube is an inspired choice for a trunk.
This Panda has learned to adapt to his new urban lifestyle. Since moving to the big city he has picked up a new red bow tie. But, that is the least of this new tricks. Panda has learned how to order delivery from his new smartphone. It has never been easier to order bamboo to go. This Urban Panda Lego MOC is created by DOGOD Brick Design. The build has been entered into the recent Lego Ideas “Your build in the world-famous Lego house!” contest. This is a very well designed creation. Most importantly the bear has a great shape. Nothing looks too flat, or too fragile here. He just looks cute. Another great part of this design is how well the arms and legs are integrated into the body. Panda is hiding a huge secret. There is a hidden panel on his tummy that can be removed to reveal a message. Inside of this Lego Panda is small vignette showing Panda Bears living in a bamboo forest. The message is that even though life is nice in the big city, this bear will always miss his life in the forest.
The Spyro the Dragon video game was first released in 1998 on the Playstation. One of the best platformers of that generation, and often found on demo discs. Recently Spyro has seen a resurgence in popularity with the remake of original trilogy of games called Spyro Reignited. The little purple dragon is unbelievably cute. This Spyro the Dragon Lego build is created by Marin Stipkovic. Usually a Lego model has to be less detailed than its inspiration. But in this case, the model is more detailed and less blocky than the Playstation original. Spyro has a full range of motion, with fully posable feet, wings, mouth, and tail. The horns being built with Technic pieces is a great solution, and the brick built wings look great.
The popular video game Undertale has a lot of memorable characters. You have Frisk the main character, Mettaton a robotic entertainer, Flowey the flower, and the pun loving Sans. Anthony Forsberg has built this collection of Lego Undertale characters. They started out building Mettaton and then decided to include the main cast. These brick built figures are proud of their studs, which seems fitting. In a way the studs are reminiscent of the 8-bit style graphics from the game. Frisk and Sans are wonderfully three dimensional, the faces are not just flat which complicated the models and was worth the effort. Mettaton contains fully posable hands and arms and is holding a microphone. Flowey is a charming creation, especially the petals. A few custom stickers for the face, which represent the full range of emotions during the game.
