This Lego MOC called “The Knucker And The Pie” is created by Kingmarshy. Built as an entry into Bio-Cup 2020 in the Folklore and Mythology theme. In this case this brick built dragon is based on the tale of The Knucker. An old legend based in the village of Lyminster in Sussex. The village had a dragon problem and a local resident came up with a plan involving a poisoned pie. This Lego build has recreated the mythical dragon. A red and gold beast built using a lot of Bionicle parts. When looking at the detail in the legs you might find Bionicle masks, hands, and armor plating. The rib cage and the tiny wings are great details that lend personality to the Knucker. The dragon is made up of a lot of flexible joints and points. Meaning that it can take up a lot of different poses. The Kuncker comes with two accessories, Jim Puttock as a Lego Minifigure and his delicious poisoned pie.
Hollow Knight has some of the most memorable characters and boss fights in any recent video game. The stylized underground world of bugs is surprisingly beautiful. Lego creator Dylan Mievis has created a trio of figures from Hollow Knight. There is the enigmatic Hornet who has proved so popular that she will soon be starring in her own video game called Silksong. The Lego Hornet figure features her deadly weapon named Needle, and she comes wrapped up in cloth from a Lego Star Wars figure. The black tentacle pieces work perfectly for legs. The Lego Knight is the shortest of the bunch and comes equipped with his Nail. Who would know that the future of the nest rests on his shoulders.
The last Lego figure is The Hollow Knight. One of the hardest bosses that the Knight has to fight. Infected by the plague, this creation is based on their first boss form. This figure ended up being a bit hard to balance properly. To hold up the weight of the head, there is a hidden Technic support structure running through the body. A great detail is the hint of the infection showing through the eyes, and all along the base. The green clothing is made up of over 15 individual capes from Boba Fett figures.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Lego Minifigures Series 14 is still on shelves, the Halloween theme is a tough(er) sell after October. The good news is that Series 15 (71011) is on its way. With a January 2016 release date the first official images have started to appear online. This time they are going with an eye-popping orange color scheme. Lego is also sticking to the (slightly expensive) $3.99 price point.
This time the sixteen Minifigs include: a golden Winged Warrior, an Animal Control Officer & Skunk, a Robot, a Janitor, a Jewel Thief, a Farmer & Pig, an Astronaut, a Black Knight, a Faun/Satyr, a Happy (Left) Shark, a Queen, a Wrestler, a Dancer, a Native American Mother, a Kendoka, and wounded Clumsy Man.
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.
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.
