Gotta Collect Them All – Lego Fabuland Maxifigs

Lego Fabuland Maxifigs MOC Group 2

Lego Fabuland has a storied past. The Lego theme ran from 1979 to 1989, and had over 100 official sets released. Not quite Duplo and not quite Lego, Fabuland was in this weird in-between space. They were one of the first themes to be licensed out to non-lego products. Including books, vinyl records, and puzzles. There was even an official Lego television program called Edward and Friends that aired in 1987 and 1988. The most recognizable part of the Fabuland theme are all the characters. There are well over 50 of them. They were bigger than Minifigures, and included sculpted unique faces/heads.

This collection of Lego Fabuland Maxifigs is created by Koen Van Der Biest. These MOCs are expertly made and really show off the personality of their Fabuland characters. It looks like Catherine Cat, Bonnie Rabbit, Wilfred Walrus, and Maximillian Mouse make up the first group. Then there is Hannah Hippo with a wheelbarrow. In the next group is Peter Pig, Freddy Fox, Charlie Crow, Clive Crocodile, Bianca Lamb, Peter Panda, and Edward Elephant. (I may have mixed up a couple of them…)

At the current rate, all of the characters will be built in 3-5 years. These animals are on their way be one of the greatest Lego MOCs ever. Check out all the Fabuland Maxifigs or Maxifigures over here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/61911005@N03/32652006037/

Octavian, A Lego Animal Crossing Villager MOC

Octavian, A Lego Animal Crossing Villager MOC

Lego and Animal Crossing seem like they would be a great fit. Depending on how you count there are almost (or more) than 500 villagers that appear in the video game series. One of which is named Octavian. In Animal Crossing he is known as a cranky octopus who is really into outer space and aliens. The octopus type of villager is one of the more rare types to visit, making Octavian rather special. This Lego Octavian is the creation of Dave Foreman. Everything is official Lego pieces, and on the purple cone is a custom star that probably took a lot more work then expected.

If you are looking for something similar, there is an old Lego theme called Fabuland, which shares a lot of concepts. Animal villagers living and working around town.
