A peaceful afternoon nap. Snoopy is an expert at those. He is a dog after all. Too bad Woodstock seems to have other plans, but only if he can wake up his best friend. This Peanuts inspired Lego Snoopy and Woodstock is the creation of Tyler Sky. It also features the iconic red roofed dog house, and a little tree. Snoopy is napping, but he can get up and move around too. His head, arms (feet?), and feet are all articulated and can be posed in lots of different ways. If you look carefully you can just make it out that Snoopy’s nose is a black spaceman/motorcycle helmet. Woodstock is perched in his nest getting ready for the day. This duo was submitted into Lego Ideas, but sadly it did not get enough votes. Hopefully they can wake up and try again someday.
Stephanie spends a lot of time outdoors, riding horses, swimming, playing soccer, and riding a jetski. But did you know she is one of the best X-Wing fighter pilots in the galaxy? Her Lego Friends X-Wing is roughly the same scale as the official Star Wars X-Wings. It features a unique white, purple, and pink paint style. It has all the normal starfighter stuff: engines, s-foils, proton torpedo launchers, and glass canopy. The best feature is the astromech navigation system, or should it be called astrodog navigation system? Currently the best system to help target tennis balls with. This Lego Friends X-Wing also includes a clear display stand, and a small skiff for transporting goods and crew with. The Rebel helmets look great on the Lego Friends figures.
This is the Lego K-9 Multi-Purpose Support Unit, built by Red. This cyber-dog is part of bigger team, and looks ready to go on a mission. The various robot looking augmentations, face shield and antennae, are all sleek modifications to the dog body. This build is super smooth. With great curves, which are very hard to achieve with lego. Check out the hind legs, and the front chest area. The end result is is a doberman robotic dog that looks like it leapt right out science fiction (or, maybe cyberpunk?) In fact, his brother might just be “Rex,” from Fallout New Vegas.
Who doesn’t want more Baby Yoda stuff? This Lego Baby Yoda is the creation of Wilson Du. This model is pretty close to full scale, and manages to keep a lot of the cuteness. Most of the Lego MOCs for Baby Yoda are much smaller. Some of the details that really stand out with this creation are the posable arms, huge reflective eyes, and cute button nose. The nose especially stands out. Also note the use of the reverse side of the lego bricks for the inner ear texture. (Bonus dog below!)
The Lego Minifigures Series are fun to collect. They always look great too, especially when displayed in a group. One of the best ways to show off your collection is to build little mini MOCs or vignettes. These Lego Minifigures Series 19 vignettes are super cute. Created by zaru_soba, they show off all the different figures and create a mini story. The personality of each minifig matches up perfectly with their scene. The video gamer battlestation, the bathtub wave surfer, the dog sitter, and the retro gardener are some favorites. What is great is that these type of MOCs take relatively few pieces to build.
What happens when you combine the Lego Friends Downtown Bakery (41006) with the famous Lego Cafe Corner (10182)? You get a Lego Friends Corner. The ground floor hosts an extremely popular bakery and pastry shop. Up to the second floor is a hip pet hair salon, where all the super cute dogs and cats go to get groomed. Then on to the rooftop is an outdoor area and garden for your pets. Which includes a tiny birdhouse, a dog bath, water fountain, and a peaceful garden. This modular style building also includes bicycle parking and a large outdoor patio.
The Corner proves to be so popular that a few special guests are visiting, and enjoying their bakery treats. Including Iron Man!
