Get Your Feet Wet At The Beach

Get Your Feet Wet At The Beach

It’s time to get your feet wet and catch a wave. Just be careful, you never know what lurks below. This Lego MOC is the creation of MadLEGOman. At first glance this is a great scene of a Minifigure Surfer at the beech, and the hidden world below the waves. But the build has a huge secret. Almost all of the scenery is built out of Minifigure Legs. Both the cresting wave, and the sandy ocean floor are completely made out of legs. Even one of the deadly sharks is eating some legs (from a poor diver). The way the water legs shift and change color, working in white and dark blue pants is a great illusion. Another great use of all these legs, is with the sandy floor. Some of the legs are sticking up to support the sharks and plants. The builder has challenged everyone to count how many legs there are, and even hints that there are two answers to this question.

Under The Sea With A Giant Squid

GrimLock's Under The Sea with a Giant Squid

“The seaweed is always greener
In somebody else’s lake
You dream about going up there
But that is a big mistake
Just look at the world around you
Right here on the ocean floor
Such wonderful things surround you
What more is you lookin’ for?”

This Under the Sea MOC vignette, by Grim Lock, creates its own story. Deep sea divers go searching for treasure, divers find treasure and giant squid. Giant squid kills one diver, and now the treasure goes to the last one standing. Man vs. Squid, who will win?

This little Lego vignette is impeccable. Great rocks in the background, a good use of tiles to create the sandy ocean floor, and a good selection of treasure strewn about the beasts lair. Then, by only showing a few tentacles emerging from a tiny cave, it leaves the rest of the monster up to your imagination. Good stuff.
