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.
“Fending off the Giants” is a Lego MOC built by Peter Carmichael. It is a reference to Gulliver’s Travels, where the giant gets trapped and tied down by smaller people. Here those Lego Giants are actually Lego Flashlights. Which are neat toys, but infamously not easy to combine with your Lego collection. The base is a great design, with a combination of plates and slopes to give it that 3D quality. These types of bases are great for displaying your MOCs. As mini builds the gold gem flail stands out, as does the tall tree. The solution for tying down the giants is also great, and manages to use official Lego pieces. Then there is the defending army being a bunch of random classic Minifigures which is great. The question is if they can manage to win the battle. Giant Emmet doesn’t look like he is going down easily.
If those other Lego Pikachu MOCs were too small for you, then this is the one you have been looking for. Dirk Van Haesbroeck was commissioned by Game Mania, a Dutch video game store, to build two giant Pikachu models. The end product stood 1.5 meters tall, which is just about 5 feet tall. Each giant Pikachu model is built with just over 25,000 Lego pieces. In the end it looks like these models were auctioned off for charity, with one of them going for €3,500, or $3,700. That puts it at 15¢ per piece.
The model is mostly hollow inside, but there is some supporting structure hidden around. In the build video (below) you can see a system of Technic pieces were used to hold Pikachu’s massive tail.
If you happen to live in Europe you may have seen this giant Lego Netto Scottie Dog helping out at your local Netto supermarket. This giant yellow Lego dog was created by Bright Bricks and is about 2m tall, 2m long and 80cm wide. Most interesting is seeing the behind the scenes photos. It looks like the Scottie Dog is hollow. Supported with a lattice work of Lego beams. It is also cool to see a digital model being used as a guide for the real model. The Bright Bricks studio looks like any Lego fans dream.
