There Is A Little Bit Of Magic In This Lego Town

There Is A Little Bit Of Magic In This Lego Town

This Lego build called “A Little Bit of Magic” is created by Midwest Builders. It is a part of the Guilds of Historica, specifically from the west, the Guild of Avalonia. A community of builders who are creating a whole fantasy world. An active group that is always adding new characters, maps, and stories. This scene is a streetscape of the town called Albion. Everything pictured is a jumping off point for stories. The local Flower Merchant seems to know ancient magic. A knight on horseback notices the magical display of talent. And a mysterious rogue seems to watching everything. Some of the stand out details include the brick built tarps / canopies, the lovely signage at each merchant stand, the peeling green paint on the inn, and all the magical trinkets strung up. You can even spot the eye of Sauron. The use of some hidden LEDs is a nice touch, and brings magic to life in this Lego MOC.

Which Side Will Prevail In This Lego Battle Of The Seasons?

Which Side Will Prevail In This Lego Battle Of The Seasons? Intro.

Four powerful mages have been fighting it out, and it has come down to one final battle. Each mage is fighting to protect and expand their own season. This is a Battle of the Seasons, a Lego MOC created by Blue Builder. The whole scene took over four months to build, but took over two years to plan. With 73 Minifigures this battle will change the world. The idea for this build was inspired by the Heroes of Might and Magic video game series. Real time strategy games that are well known on the PC. The spring warriors feature humans, fauns, fairies, and even a dragon. The summer time is mostly humans with pegasus and other winged creatures. Fall warriors include snakes, wolves, minotaurs, and orcs. And, the deadly winter army is mostly undead, skeletons, vampires, and ghosts. The whole scene is centered around a magic scroll, setting the scene with some text: “In a battle of might and magic who will prevail…”

A neat feature in this Lego MOC is the lighting effects. Hidden behind the scroll, in the center, are multi-colored LEDs. They shine up through the transparent bricks, representing magic rivers. All combining in the center where the winners crown is perched.

The Deadly Dragon Knight Is Ready To Duel

The Deadly Dragon Knight - Lego MOC

This is the Lego MOC called “The Fearsome Dragon Knight” which is created by Thomas Jenkins. It is another entry into the latest Iron Builders challenge (there sure are a lot of these!) which is where you try to implement Minifigure legs in unique ways. Here you can see a whole bunch of them if you look carefully. The shield is ringed in legs, the chest armor is made up of legs, the tan underside of the Knight is made of legs as are its nose, ears, and toes! There are probably a lot more hidden too. Some other fun stuff included the giant sword topped off with one of the new Nexo knights shields, and the yellow lever base pieces being used for reptile eyes. This Dragon Knight looks deadly, and would make a formable boss for a group of adventurers.

Brave The Forgotten Kingdom With Lego Hollow Knight

Lego Hollow Knight Video Game

Hollow Knight is one of the best Metroidvania sytle video games out there. It is a mysterious story about a Knight, a little bug, exploring the ancient City of Tears. Along the way odd allies are met while deadly enemies try to stop all. So why not take a brake from all that and join the The Grimm Troupe. A circus that just happens to be town right as everything is going wrong. This is the Lego Hollow Knight which is created by Red. A great MOC that is instantly recognizable. Check out the plates used for the armor, the horns/mandibles, and the fully posable body. Then there is the Nail (the traditional weapon in Hallownest), a super simple build that is perfect. This little bug looks like they are ready to take on the world.

The Sad Tale Of Sir Warick The Overconfident, A Lego Fire Dragon

A Lego Fire Dragon

Lego and dragons go way back. With all sorts of official and MOC models created out of lego. This one might be one of the most impressive beasts yet. This Lego Fire Dragon is created by Mark, of The Brickman team, and titled “The Sad Tale of Sir Warick the Overconfident.” It seems that an overconfident knight has found themselves overpowered by a giant dragon. It didn’t help that a local witch mislead Sir Warick into thinking he was dragon-proof. The finished model contains well over 10,000 lego pieces and took over 100 hours to put together.

The Sad Tale Of Sir Warick The Overconfident, A Lego Fire Dragon

This dragon is seriously huge. The final model had to be made with transportation in mind. It also features gigantic folding (and removable) wings made out of pleather. A complicated collection of ball joints and curved slopes. The dragon is also breathing fire, with an impressive light feature. The whole scene is then set on a massive rocky (and snowy) base.

Cute Mini Vignettes For Lego Minifigures Series 19

Cute Mini Vignettes For Lego Minifigures Series 19

The Lego Minifigures Series are fun to collect. They always look great too, especially when displayed in a group. One of the best ways to show off your collection is to build little mini MOCs or vignettes. These Lego Minifigures Series 19 vignettes are super cute. Created by zaru_soba, they show off all the different figures and create a mini story. The personality of each minifig matches up perfectly with their scene. The video gamer battlestation, the bathtub wave surfer, the dog sitter, and the retro gardener are some favorites. What is great is that these type of MOCs take relatively few pieces to build.

The Blue Lion Castle – An Epic Lego MOC

PockyLU Lego Blue Lion Castle

If the Lego King’s Castle (70404) is just not big or detailed enough then this Blue Lion Castle might be what you are looking for. This classic looking castle is made up of tens of thousands of Lego pieces. The whole things sticks to a gray and blue color scheme that works extremely well. These Lion Knights and Soldiers are protecting one of the most epic Lego castles ever built. The detailing in the walls, the stained glass, the grand entrance, and the huge tower make this thing a work of art.

PockyLU Lego Blue Lion Castle Army

The Lego Blue Lion Castle was inspired by the famous Hohenzollern Castle. Which is located on the top of Berg (Mount) Hohenzollern in Germany. The iconic Hohenzollern Castle shares the blue and gray design, and overall floor plan with the Blue Lion Castle. The Lego version though seems to be much more ornate then the real life inspiration.

Lego Castle: King’s Castle (70404) Reviewed @ Eurobricks!

oo7's Lego Castle, Kings Castle 70404 Review

Lego has recently restarted its Castle theme. This may be the first time that two fantasy based Lego themes have overlapped. Lego Castle and Lego the Lord of the Rings / the Hobbit are both themes that share common designs. It has never been a better time for fantasy Lego fans. The new Lego Castle theme is actually very similar to the previous Kingdoms theme. Almost matching up set for set, with very few new ideas. For collectors of Lego Castle the minifigures are going to be the main draw here.

oo7 has recently posted up a full pictorial review over at Eurobricks of the new Lego Castle: King’s Castle (70404). This is the big flagship set for the theme and seems to have hit all the checkboxes for a Lego Castle. The standard Gatehouse, Kings keep, curtain wall, and two towers all combine to create a great modular castle. Perfect as the Crownies seem to be defending against the included siege engine and Red Dragon minifigs.

This castle comes with the Lego King, Knight, and two Archers. While on the “bad guy” side you will get a Red Dragon Knight and two Raiders. The Lego King usually comes with a chromed sword, but here comes with a pearlized sword. It comes off looking not as regal, but is also not that much of a loss. The best minifigs here are the Crown Knight, and Red Dragon Knight.

007's Lego Kings Castle (70404) Review Minifigs

As usual the Castle set is modular and can integrate with other Lego Castle sets. For instance adding the Lego Castle: the Gatehouse Raid (70402) to the castle will match the design and scale perfectly. There are a lot of different options that you can choose for the castle layout.
