The Cookie Monster is known for his unending appetite for cookies. It got him is a bit of trouble in the last few years, and the Monster had to start a new diet. One of moderation and healthy eating. But, he still enjoys a good cookie or two. This Lego Cookie Monster is the work of kosbrick. Built as part of a challenge/contest called H2H MOC Duel. The goal was to build a character inside a 16x16x16 stud area. This build is instantly recognizable. The body of the Monster uses studs to mimic the furry texture of the Muppet. With two googly eyes, and wide jaws. Another great detail is the base. Which just happens to look like cookie dough. The real Cookie Monster would approve of this Lego MOC.
A peaceful afternoon nap. Snoopy is an expert at those. He is a dog after all. Too bad Woodstock seems to have other plans, but only if he can wake up his best friend. This Peanuts inspired Lego Snoopy and Woodstock is the creation of Tyler Sky. It also features the iconic red roofed dog house, and a little tree. Snoopy is napping, but he can get up and move around too. His head, arms (feet?), and feet are all articulated and can be posed in lots of different ways. If you look carefully you can just make it out that Snoopy’s nose is a black spaceman/motorcycle helmet. Woodstock is perched in his nest getting ready for the day. This duo was submitted into Lego Ideas, but sadly it did not get enough votes. Hopefully they can wake up and try again someday.
This is “Fetchbot” and it is a Lego Clockwork Robot, created by Sven Franic. Featuring retro inspired color choices: red, sky blue, and silver. So many old tin robots feature similar colors. Fetchbot is great at getting stuff, such as a bunch of flowers. Check out the great antenna design, the control panel on the front, the clockwork key, and claw hands. Those hands are using the Ninjago turntable holders, which allow the Lego robot to grip a wide variety of objects. All the better for fetching things.
Mr. Brick and Friends go on a lot of adventures. This time these three bricks are on a roadtrip to the beach in their bright yellow convertible. Created by EVCreations, “Mr Brick & Friends at the beach” is a great Lego MOC. The yellow convertible car is gloriously proud of its studs. It features headlights, a windshield wiper, and a green interior. The vehicle is just wide enough to fit three. Mr. Brick and the other two are great examples of mixing Duplo into the Lego system. The Lego Mixels ball joints and printed eye tiles and pieces go a long way to giving these three expressions. Another great detail is that the background beach scene is just a few pieces of paper, and a tan cloth. Simple yet perfect.
Stephanie spends a lot of time outdoors, riding horses, swimming, playing soccer, and riding a jetski. But did you know she is one of the best X-Wing fighter pilots in the galaxy? Her Lego Friends X-Wing is roughly the same scale as the official Star Wars X-Wings. It features a unique white, purple, and pink paint style. It has all the normal starfighter stuff: engines, s-foils, proton torpedo launchers, and glass canopy. The best feature is the astromech navigation system, or should it be called astrodog navigation system? Currently the best system to help target tennis balls with. This Lego Friends X-Wing also includes a clear display stand, and a small skiff for transporting goods and crew with. The Rebel helmets look great on the Lego Friends figures.
The big duel from The Last Jedi is when Luke and Kylo Ren face off on the salty planet of Crait. This Lego MOC called “Luke vs. Kylo Ren on Crait” is the work of BlueBrick. The scene features the striking white and red landscape of Crait. There are two main techniques used to make the scene instantly recognizable. The center is built with the bricks turned up on their sides. Allowing for smaller and more narrow details. This is then integrated and hidden by building a border around everything. These SNOT techniques make great display bases. Kylo is a kicking up the salt while Luke is much more calm. A great detail from the film.
“Chapter 4: Sanctuary” created by @ctr_bricks is the next chapter in their series of Star Wars Mandalorian MOCs. This scene represents a huge change compared to the past few builds. Instead of muted earth tones, we finally find ourselves in the lush green landscape of Sorgan. A wooden hut sits in the corner. Made from a variety of posts, plant tops, and brooms. But, the focus here is that Lego Omera is attempting to remove the Mandalorian’s helmet. A nearby pond is full of Blue Shrimp, which look like they might be delicious. These crustaceans are actually Minifigure hands. It looks like Baby Yoda is even hanging out… maybe he is hungry?
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.
