The Lego Household Arrival People Introducer Robot

The Lego Household Arrival People Introducer Robot - HAPI

Meet the Household Arrival People Introducer Robot, or HAPI for short. This little lego robot is the creation of Tom Gerardin. It features one of the new Lego Dots, which is a new theme focused on emoji and smiley faces. Normally used for bracelets and accessories. Just goes to show that you can borrow from any Lego theme to make your creations. Standing about as tall as two minifigures with a lot of personality squeezed into its frame. Check out the robot pauldron used for the head, and the minifigure laser guns for the jets on the back. It looks like HAPI might hang out with the Mixels in its spare time.

The Lego Prototype Anti-Droid Exosuit

The Lego Prototype Anti-Droid Exosuit

This trooper is armed with 2 Z-8 chain guns. Droids won’t know what to do as they are blasted to bits. The Lego Prototype Anti-Droid Exosuit is an MOC created by tommilorenzo. It is amazingly compact and fits a single Lego Minifigure perfectly. The reactor core on the back of the exosuit is a great detail, as are the various vents and pipes (for cooling?). It all comes together pretty well!

Borris, Momo, Admiral Horrace, & Arnold: Lego Pirate Jigbots + Argali the Iron Jigbot

Lego Pirate Jigbots

“Avast ye bots big and small!
We be the jigbot pirates, proud and tall.
Our heads be flappy and our pay is crappy.
But the job is fun! with lots of Rum!
So we be pillaging yee all.”

If you have ever wondered what you could use your Lego Star Wars planets (+ Death Star) for then look no further. You can create a Jigbot. These surprisingly cute robots are a combination of Lego pieces, Bionicle pieces, and Technic pieces. These Lego pirate Jigbots are the result of a team build, specifically Team Jigsaw, which consists of Simon Liu, Nick V, Lego Junkie, and Legonardo Davidy. Borris the Pirate was created in 2013, and a little over a year latter was joined by Momo the Pirate, Admiral Horrace, and Arnold the Pirate.

LegonardoDavidy's Lego Jigbot Admiral Horrace

“Sailing the seven seas taking, searching for pirate scum and bringing their days of looting and pillaging to an end, recruiting them as toilet cleaners and barrel makers for his majesty the King. More barrels = more ale, and the toilets… yeah. Pirate Jigbots beware!” — Legonardo Davidy

LegoJunkie's Lego Jigbot Momo The Pirate

Momo the Pirate is a typical ragtag bandit. Put together with a more random assortment of parts then the other Jigbots.

NickV's Lego Jigbot Borris The Pirate

“Although intended for destruction and world domination, Borris has chosen to instead live his life as a free-spirited, swash-buckling pirate. With his rusty cutlass and his bottle ‘o rum always at hand, nothing excites Borris more than adventure, trespassing and pillaging minifig towns.” — Nick V.

The only odd ball is Argali the Iron Jigbot. Not actually part of the Pirate Jigbots. Argali was originally built for an Iron Builder Competition.

“Argali is a peculiar fellow, who enjoys classy activities such as kite-sailing, scarf making, and abstract conversation. Also known as the Giver of Bagpipes, Argali is not mentally stable, and can not be trusted.”

Tarakia – Master of Mind. A Lego Tao Hukia.

Nick V's Lego Tarakia Master Of Mind

“Tarakia is usually described unfavourably as reckless, hyperactive or short-tempered. She always seems to be the first to jump into combat, never waiting to listen for direction or a plan. However this couldn’t be further from the truth; utilizing her psychic communication powers, the Toa Hukia are constantly linked together and able to work perfectly as a team. Tarakia is also the group’s weapons expert and interrogator. Owing to her fearsome reputation, few enemies can hide secrets from her.” — Nick V.

Robots and Lego are a natural fit. The once successful Bionicle is getting ready to make a come back. In a lot of ways Bionicle is just a starting point for your own creations. With the right pieces and an active imagination one can create something awesome. This Lego robot is the creation of Nick V. It is titled Tarakia – Master of Mind and it is an example of what can be created with Lego. If Lego could release something like this as an official set, it would sell like crazy. But, this type of work is usually super delicate and will not hold up to play. Nick V. had been creating a whole series of these robots, and each one is super detailed and has a full backstory documented.

Jud & Fancy May, An H-Wing Alphabet Starfighter

BrickJunky's Alphabet Fighter H-Wing Fancy May

The Star Wars style Alphabet Fighter (X-wing, Y-wing) and Lego are a perfect match. From Bricks to Bothans recently posted a call for entries in an Alphabet Fighter tournament. This contest is a head-to-head tournament to see which starfighters are the last ones standing. Here BrickJunky has created an H-Wing nicknamed “Fancy May” which is piloted by Jud and his astromech R9D9. The printed Gungan Sub bricks have been put to a good use. It also looks like there is some sort of Space Cat stowing away.

“Jud rebuilt this H-Wing from the pipes up and named her “Fancy May”. He retro fitted her with two high speed repulsor cannons on the front flanks, as well as a pivoting double barrel on her belly. In the rear his copilot astromech R9-D9 helps control the underbelly cannon, as well as keeping all systems running efficiently. The long wings raise and lower for take off and landing, while using the powerful under thrusters to maintain vertical lift.”

BrickJunky's Alphabet Fighter H-Wing Fancy May Side

“The H-Wing ‘Fancy May’ getting some work done to her by Jud. She might need constant upkeep, but she has never let him down in action! Her wings fold during landing, originally to get more fighters into a hanger bay. Now she is one of the only H-Wings of her kind left. “Good ol’ girl” Jud always says. Just like Fancy, R9-D9 has seen some modifications by Jud. After losing his astromech body in a gun battle, R9 was fitted with a more simpler style of coverings. The H-Wing has retractable landing gear and the double barrel repulser cannon on her underbelly.”

FBTB's 2013 MOC Alphabet Fighters Tournament

The “FBTB 2013 Moc Madness Tournament Announcement: Alphabet Fighters!” has recently been closed. With all 64 entries filled. It looks like this H-Wing will be in good company.

Lego Star Wars: Jabba’s Sail Barge (75020) Reviewed by Csacsa234 @ Eurobricks

Csacsa234's Lego Star Wars Jabba's Sail Barge 75020 Review 01

The new Lego Star Wars: Jabba’s Sail Barge (75020) has officially been released and is starting to show up at some retailers. This set comes with 4 minifigures (Slave Leia, Max Rebo, Weequay, and Ree-Yees), 1 bigfigure (Jabba the Hutt) and 1 droid (R2D2). It contains many hidden play features, and some nice details. Jabba’s Sail Barge comes in at 850 pieces and a $119.99 price tag. Which is a good deal cheaper then the previous Jabba’s Sail Barge (6210) on the secondary market.

Eurobricks user Csacsa234 has already posted a full photo review. Noting that there are hidden pirate cannons, flick firing missiles, undercarriage wheels, a removable deck/roof, and foldable sides/walls. This set is full of play features.

Csacsa234's Lego Star Wars Jabba's Sail Barge 75020 Review 02

Inside Jabba’s Sail Barge is a kitchen, jail, throne room, and a music stage. Max Rebo and his futuristic piano (or is it an organ?) steal the show from Jabba in this set. He just happens to be a perfect Lego minifigure, oozing cuteness and a hot blue color scheme. Interestingly, Lego has provided film (thin plastic) sails for the Sail Barge which will hopefully last a long time. There are also 26 stickers, which luckily are not required. Jabba’s Sail Barge looks great with and without stickers.

Csacsa234's Lego Star Wars Jabba's Sail Barge 75020 Review 03

The Lego minifigures are extremely detailed. With a newish version of R2D2 (grey top, and better printing), Slave Leia, Jabba the Hutt, Ree-Yees, Weequay, and Max Rebo. While the Jabba the Hutt and his goons look great the real star is Max Rebo (sorry Leia). Just look at that little blue dude.

New Lego Star Wars Announced for March 2014: a Lego AT-AP (75043)!

Star Wars Lego AT-AP

This past weekend at the San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) Lego announced and revealed a whole lot of new sets. One of which is a new Lego Star Wars AT-AP (75043). This is a new version of the older Lego Star Wars AT-AP Walker (7671), which has proven to be extremely hard to find. The AT-AP (All Terrain Attack Pod) made its first appearance in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. It looks like this version will feature five minifigures, a Wookie, Clone Trooper, and three Battle Droids. Gone are the bright red and lime green detailing, giving this Lego AT-AP a much more realistic design. Not to mention vastly superior feet and legs. This new Lego AT-AP will include a total of 717 pieces and will priced at $69.99. Due out in March 2014.
