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.
The Big Bad Wolf gets into many dubious adventures. Often cast as a villain in various fairy tales. The most famous of which is Little Red Riding Hood. This Lego figure is based on the pivotal scene in which the girls faces off with the wolf. The build is created by PaleoBricks and called “The better to eat you with!” The wolf is an entry into the Bio-Cup 2020, a challenge to build something with a “Canine” theme. The Big Bad Wolf is completely made out of Lego and is wearing a sleeping cap and blanket. The figure uses a lot of Bionicle pieces mixed with standard Lego. The end result is surprisingly clean, and looks natural. A few interesting details include the old style Lego Minifigure cape used for a tongue, the Minifigure arms hiding in the ears, and the blades being used for the tail. An overall great detail is the use of the lighter grey color on the chest and jaw.
Majora’s Mask is one of the most famous items in the Legend of Zelda series. The mysterious mask ends up in the Skull Kids hands. Where it eventually influences the wearer to destroy Termina with the help from an evil moon. This Lego version of the mask is the creation of speedyhead. The build features the colorful mask displayed on a stand. The mask recreates the weirdly hypnotic eyes surprisingly well. With red Lego croissants used to recreate the red outlines. The rainbow colored horns/spikes match the video game too. Leave it to Nintendo to make one of the most evil items so colorful. Just make sure to never put the mask on, maybe it is best if the Happy Mask Salesman keeps it for now.
This is the Lego Cubo Scout Drone, created by Milan Sekiz. This cute little drone is based on the 1980’s Blacktron theme. The black, yellow, and red colors are very striking. You can tell because of all the black, that this drone is up to some bad stuff. The design of this spaceship when folded up is a cube. With one corner featuring an ominous red window. A Lego light brick is placed inside to achieve the red light effect. The scout can unfold itself and open into a more traditional spaceship design. With two wings and engines. The whole this even comes with a stand, that holds the ship on its corner. It all fits together well, emphasizing the geometric design.
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.
Just in time for the season premiere of Game of Thrones, Guy Himber, has created King Joffrey, Long May He Reign. This television shows most infamous villain is looking appropriately evil. Some of these Lego pieces have been put to novel use. Check out the Minifigure arms, used for fingers. And, it even looks like the One Ring is adorning the top of the crown. Even in Lego you still want to slap Joffrey across his smug face.
Feeling like the wait is way too long for another Despicable Me? Thats okay, because the Lego community has been creating a whole lot of Lego Minions. There are Minions Parties, Mini Minions, Minion Maids, Batman Minions, and many many more. LegoGenre even has a whole section of these creations. The newest entry into the series is this collection of Minions! created by Yatkuu. My favorite of the bunch are the SuperHero themed Minions. Captain America and Batman Minion are instantly recognizable and hilarious. These little dudes have an interesting story:
“This series of Minions was inspired by my Nerdly-Minion and started as a project for the LEGO Store community window in Raleigh, NC. I meant to put these up on display for the release of the movie “Minions” due in July 15. I think the kids would have liked it.
Unfortunately, for reasons that I can’t really comprehend TLG decided to revisit the rules of the community windows and as a result these little guys will probably never see a LEGO store from up-close. Too bad.”
