After being banished to the Shadow World by the Elves, Noctura spends her days off in her hidden garden. Even villains need some peace and quiet. This Lego Elves themed MOC is called “Noctura’s Garden” and is built by Kristel. The vignette has been created for the Eurobricks Flower Show. The build comes with a simple base which is a great way to make your Lego MOC displays stand out. The scene features a lovely but dangerous looking forest. Complete with a charming stone pathway. The forest is built out of a lot of black tentacle pieces, and various black flora. There are pink and dark blue leaves, mixed with teeth/thorns. A few glowing gems complete the look. The end result is a perfect fantasy forest. There is no better place to plan revenge than Noctura’s Garden.
This Lego Elf Retreat is the creation of Inthert. It was built as an entry into the MOC Wars 2020, in the Armless category. Which meant the scene had to feature weapons that were not being used as weapons. With that in mind you might notice that almost everything in this Elf Retreat is built out of weapons. Check out the guns used for the tree trunk, the axes and rifles used as lumber, and even the quiver full of arrows being used as a stair step. The most inventive use though is in that chair at the lookout spot. The crossbows used for chair legs is inspired. The end result is one of the best looking minifigure scale chairs around. Ultimately, there are seven different types of weapons hidden around. It’s hard to tell if all of these walkways are built to stay out of the purple water because it somehow looks relaxing and poisonous. The lego doors being used for these walkways is also a great detail. Giving a recycling vibe to these elves. It seems very fitting.
Lego has a new theme arriving this spring called the Lego Elves. Some of the first sets have already been revealed, but the Lego marketing is just starting to take off. The official Lego site has a teaser page up, promising more details in March 2015. Meanwhile some short videos have started to appear around the internet. Featuring some beautifully animated videos, it would not be a surprise if the Lego Elves had their own cartoon (like Ninjago or Legends of Chima). Interestingly, there is very little Lego in these first videos.
The Lego Elves look like they would fit right in with the Disney Fairies. Seeing as Lego has been creating Disney themed Friends sets, it would be interesting if the Fairies line had a release too. There are four main Elves (Aira, Naida, Azari, and Farran) with this release, and one main human (named Emily Jones).
Make sure to check out the Teaser Trailer, and Meet Azari below:
Lego has a new theme in the works, titled Lego Elves. It is a mix of 1/3 Lego Friends, 1/3 Lego Disney Princess, and 1/3 Disney Fairies. The upcoming theme has had 4 of its sets officially revealed.

Naida’s Spa Secret (41072) gets a purple dolphin (?), a book, and other relaxing accessories.
Naida’s Epic Adventure Ship (41073) will include a sleek ship, a white clam, two gold clams, and a beautiful sail.
“If any of the Wise should with this Ring overthrow the Lord of Mordor, using his own arts, he would then set himself on Sauron’s throne, and yet another Dark Lord would appear. And that is another reason why the Ring should be destroyed: as long as it is in the world it will be a danger even to the Wise. For nothing is evil in the beginning. Even Sauron was not so. I fear to take the Ring to hide it. I will not take the Ring to wield it.” — Elrond, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
The Council Of Elrond is one of the most important scenes in the Lord of the Rings. This diplomatic meeting lays out the plans and sets up the events that would lead to the destruction of the One Ring. Lego has recently released an official set based on The Council of Elrond and although a good set, it does not express the importance of this event. Disco86 has created the ultimate Council of Elrond. All the characters are here, Aragorn, Boromir, Elrond, Gimli, Legolas, Gandalf, Merry, Pippin, Sam, and Frodo. Some welcome and other not (Merry, Pippin & Sam). All of these little details are present in this scene. Speaking of details, check out the ground that Elrond is standing on. Using the cheese wedge Lego pieces is a great way to achieve a SNOT appearance with curved surfaces. The trees in this scene are also very well done, showcasing the recent colors added to the Lego collection. This is a beautiful Lego build.
Helm’s Deep. For most, it is probably the most iconic scene from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. People have been creating all sorts of stuff based off of this legendary battle. Even I was creating Lego scenes and doodling Helm’s Deep throughout Middle School. Who knew that it would be Peter Jackson who would achieve everyones dream when he created his version for film.
When Lego announced that they were getting the Lord of the Rings license, the first question was whether or not they would do their own version of Helm’s Deep. Lego did not disappoint. In the first wave for the theme they released the awesome The Lord of the Rings: The Battle of Helm’s Deep 9474 . But for some, it still wasn’t enough.
GOEL KIM uploaded these photos of Helm’s Deep, created by Rich-K & Big J. This MOC is truly impressive. With over 150,000 bricks and 1,700 minifigs this has to be one of the largest LOTR builds out there. The Battle of the Hornburg is only 90% complete. With a massive tower, and more detailing to add. There are even more photos at MOCPages.
It’s not hard to imagine Théoden leading a final charge at dawn, and Gandalf arriving just in time to save the day.
