King Kong vs. Godzilla is one of those classic film match ups. Everyone imagines how they think the fight would go down. In the film King Kong vs. Godzilla, from 1962 the two monsters fight it out on top of Mount Fuji, with Kong eventually emerging as the winner. An interesting story, but a lot of fans wanted to see them fight in a big city. This Lego MOC called “Filming a Giant Monster Movie” is created by Luis Peña. He imagines a big city battle between the giants in a film studio. The lighting trusses are a great use of the large Lego pieces. The black boxes work well as a frame, giving the scene the appearance of a set without adding too much detailing. The Lego architecture style buildings are a perfect use here, but the best detail might be all of the mini cars and vehicles. There is even a tiny fire engine doing its best at damage control. Maybe this time Kong will let Godzilla win?
“Giant-Kin: Mammurok, the Last Mammoth Giant” a Lego MOC created by War Scape. Are those Lego trees small, or are the Mammoths really big. Either way those microscale trees look great. The wedges being used as leaves works surprisingly well for evergreen style trees. And the stack of plant stems works great as a more spindly tree. The main star of this build is Mammurok, a huge humanoid mammoth. The combination of a big figure body and the mammoth head (from the recent Arctic theme) looks almost like they were always meant to be together. Helped by a bunch of Lego Minifigure hair pieces that hide the seam. Wielding an old stone pillar as a huge club. Mammurok puts in a hard days work herding the more normal mammoths around the world of Warscape.
This build comes with a lot of back story: “The story of the Mammoth Giants is a story of misery and sadness. Once a great race of majestic guardians, the Mammoth Giants of old have been whittled down to just a fraction of their once great might. …”
Prawns are crustaceans that live in salt water, and fresh water. Although the Tiger Prawn prefers salt water. Often interchangeable with large shrimp. This is the “Giant Tiger Prawn” Lego MOC designed by midian454. The designer was inspired to build these prawns after thinking that the Lego Minifigure microphone piece looked like an eye. Which you can see being used as one here. Two versions were built, the brown and blue one is how the prawns look alive, while the orange and yellow version is how they look after being cooked. Too bad for the orange one. A display stand has been designed specifically so that when the prawn is displayed the tail is curled up underneath the model, the Lego prawn can be also be removed easily. That way, everything can be unfolded.
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.
