The Hero has finally made it to the end, and is ready for the final battle. An epic fight with a giant, made up of a whole bunch of other Minifigures. “The Final Battle” is the creation of SeanBr1cks, who built this Lego MOC as an entry into the Lego Ideas contest. The giant is the star of this build, and amazingly it keeps the Minifigures shape very well. If you look carefully you can even see it has two eyes. It is also rare to see a brick built background. Here it is a bunch of plates turned up on their side. It works well, and is better than a plain white or grey background. Hopefully our little hero brought an extra life or two, or at least a health potion… he’s going to need it.
It’s MAR10 Day (March 10th), a celebration of everything Mario related. For the event Nintendo is pushing coupons and discounts on various Mario video games and products. But the surprising news is from Lego, they have announced an official Lego Super Mario theme coming soon. Not a lot of details are available, other than the announcement teaser. The short video shows off what looks like the famous Mario Mario in some sort of Lego form. Clearly not a Minifigure. It looks like a whole new type of figure. Judging by the mostly standard Lego arms, the body is much shorter and wider than normal. Perched on top is an almost square head. Not unlike the Minecraft theme, but with even less in common with the Minifig. It is also unclear if this will be a normal theme in the Classic system, or something closer to the Duplo system. Let us hope that Lego and Nintendo don’t forget about the best Mario brother… Luigi!
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!)
This Lego Oshino Shinobu is based off of the Monogatari series of light novels. A light novel is a young adult book that contains the occasional illustration. Since the original publication the series has been released as a manga and anime. This brick built Lego figure is super stylish. The lego slopes and arches are used to achieve the overall shape. Check out the googles, the detailed hair, and spindly arms.
It is Harley Quinn’s turn to have some fun. Harley’s Harlequinn is a Lego Mech created by Peter Taylor for the Mech Madness 2012 contest. This mech stands up without supports, but a base was specially designed to help it stand in more dynamic poses. Check out all the features. The main weapon is a massive hammer. And, when that doesn’t work Harley can always use her giant pistol. It is made out out of various wheel parts, and even the Lego barrel (which is usually found in the Pirates theme). The Harlequinn features a four finger hand with knuckles, perfect for picking up Batman. If she is ever in trouble a few hidden cannons can help out. Harley Quinn herself pilots this monstrosity from inside the head, with duel joysticks.
This Lego Batman figure is the creation of nobu_tary. They capture one of the most definitive styles of the Batsuit. The only thing missing is the iconic chest logo. The cape even drapes over the shoulders, which is a detail you don’t see often in Batman MOCs. Also check out those 6 stud abs, and massive pecs. This Batman spends a lot of time in the gym. You can just imagine this guy standing on top of a skyscraper saying: “I Am Batman!”
Helen Sham of Small Bricks Big World – 小積木 大世界 – has been building all sorts of Lego figures. Recently she has been building Batmans. Lots and lots of Batmans. There are at least eight of them, including normal Batman, Rainbow Batman, the Lego Movie Batman, and Fairy Batman. These figures are big, and seem to have a decent amount of motion. Helen has also offered them up for sale, which you can contact her for more details (here).
The best thing is that there are other big Lego figures. Including Robin and the Joker!
These Batman themed brickbuilt figures are all part of a greater series. Which includes Superman, Wonder Woman, Wolverine, Darth Vader, and the Beatles. You can find out a whole lot more information at Helen Sham’s Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/smallbricksbigworld/
Experiment 626, more commonly known as Stitch has been let loose. By far one of the cutest laboratory experiments, even though he was designed to destroy populated areas. Stitch has been officially classified extremely dangerous. The good news is that he met Lilo in Hawaii, where a series of adventures taught him to ignore all his programming. Resulting in Stitch becoming one of the most enduring characters. This Lego Stitch MOC is created by Legohaulic. Who has spent months carefully refining this design. The figure is just about 7 inches tall, and has 13 points of articulation. Meaning that Stitch can be posed doing almost anything you can image. He also has a collection of costumes, from Halloween to Experiment 626 (where he grows 2 more arms, and antennae).
Lego Stitch is up on Lego Ideas, so make sure to vote for it if you want Lego to make this into an official set.
Here is a Lego Star Wars collection of brick built figures based on Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. There is Princess Leia (the only human), R5-D4, R2-D2, and C-3PO. They are built mostly in scale with each other. R2-D2 and R5-D4 are great little builds with a lot of character. In fact the R2-D2 reminds me of the new and rare R2-D2 polybag (30611) from Lego. C-3PO is a great build, and a lot of time went into making sure he was perfect. The key was finding all the correct gold pieces. The Lego vent pieces as the torso wiring is a great solution. Last but not least is Princess Leia. Her brick built figure has the famous hair buns, and is much more posable then she looks. Check out the photos below to see what she can do. A rather large set was also built of the space ship Tantive IV. Allowing a recreation of one of the most famous scenes in the series.
The Princess Leia and R2-D2 were built as a tribute for Carrie Fisher and Kenny Baker. Below, you can really see how well these Lego figures work together. The title of this photo is “”Did you miss me?”
