The popular video game Undertale has a lot of memorable characters. You have Frisk the main character, Mettaton a robotic entertainer, Flowey the flower, and the pun loving Sans. Anthony Forsberg has built this collection of Lego Undertale characters. They started out building Mettaton and then decided to include the main cast. These brick built figures are proud of their studs, which seems fitting. In a way the studs are reminiscent of the 8-bit style graphics from the game. Frisk and Sans are wonderfully three dimensional, the faces are not just flat which complicated the models and was worth the effort. Mettaton contains fully posable hands and arms and is holding a microphone. Flowey is a charming creation, especially the petals. A few custom stickers for the face, which represent the full range of emotions during the game.

The Little Shop of Horrors is a great cult classic. It’s one of those rare horror musicals, that actually has a whole lot of heart. The films stars, Seymour and Audrey II, have great chemistry. Jordan Schwartz has recently built their own Lego creation based on The Little Shop of Horrors. This little build features a simple but instantly recognizable Audrey II, which is accompanied by a Lego Minifigure of Seymour. This guy is also a great representation of Rick Moranis, and would be easily at home in many other Lego creations (Ghostbusters). Audrey II is looking very carnivorous, with a row of Lego teeth waiting to sink into some meat. What kind of hijinks will this duo get up to?
Sometimes you want to build Lego. Sometimes you want to plant a garden. Sometimes you want to do both, at the same time. Jin Kai Soo has created a mini series of Lego flower pots. Built around popular themed sets. The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and the Simpsons make up the first round of pots. These vignettes have captured some of the most iconic scenes in Lego form, and then integrated living plants. The end result is amazingly beautiful.
The little details really stand out. The choice of plants in each plot is spot on. The knobby roots for the little Hobbits to hide behind. The mossy and lush plants recreating the Forest Moon of Endor. And, the tiny and in scale plants outside the dinner from the Simpsons movie. The other details are great too. The skeleton Stormtrooper and the hungry crocodile fit in perfectly.
These Lego flower pots have been proposed as a project over on Lego Ideas. Go check them out, and vote for them. Other ideas have been proposed, such as Life of Pi, and Jack and the Beanstalk. You can find more photos featuring construction and water flow allowences.
