The ByeByeBye Squad is a trio of mechanical women ready to conquer whatever stands in their way. This Lego MOC is created by Letranger Absurde as a part of the Decisive Action 4: Hammer to Fall group (A collection of Lego stuff that is building a fictional world). These three Minifigures have given up their bodies for new power armor. These type of robots always prove to be extremely creative, and very fragile. Starting on the left there is blonDIE, Shearleader, and dR3d. Each character has their own specialty. BlonDIE is outfitted in an urban mech which features a pneumatic hammer, and laser eyes. Shearleader has chosen the arctic armor, which comes with duel chainsaws and shoulder mounted cannons. While dR3d is wearing a volcano suit that comes equipped with a mechanical machete. You do not want to come across them without some backup.
Living in the post apocalypse can be surprisingly comfortable. This reclaimed gas station is home to a small group of survivors who are just making day-to-day. This Lego creation called “Gas Station” has been built by hellboy.lego. Built as an entry into the Vignweek 2020 challenge. This post apocalyptic Gas Station features a small rural style station that has been turned into an outpost/watchtower. It welcomes nobody, with its multitude of Never Stop signs (from the Lego Move 2 sets) mixed in with a bunch of Nuclear Fallout signs. Everything here is Lego, no custom pieces. The soda vending machine, the old classic car, and the EAT sign are all great details that bring a lot of personality to the build. There is even a cute rubber ducky hiding out! Did the survivors get the RV and car up on the roof, or did the nuclear explosion?
The DSN is digging for Iron ore in this Lego Mine created by General Hughes. The Iron Mine is also known as the Jean Douglas Memorial Base inside the DSN. This build is a part of the Decisive Action 4, a collection of Lego MOCs that are creating a fictional world. The whole scene fits in a 20×20 stud base, but expands way up, 3 feet up! In the lower most level is the Ore Transport system responsible for transporting the minerals from tunnel to tunnel. The green LED lighting looks really great here, and helps to highlight the stone/cave design. On the second level is the main mining operation. The green lights being used again to highlight the giant drilling system. The third level reveals that the iron ore is being transported via rockets. The red LEDs help to differentiate this man made level from the lower green lit caves. Finally on the surface you can find the rocket being loaded up with ore from below. A perspective built micro city can be found on the hills, and a brick built background reveals other rockets blasting off.
In the Guilds of Historica the northern guild of Mitgardia rules over cold and harsh lands. Mitgardia has a series of fortifications to provide safety to travelers. This Lego MOC called the “Kiruna Watchtower” is created by Andreas Lenander. Set in the Historica project, which is a collection of fantasy themed Lego creations working towards creating a fictional world full of lore and adventure. This Lego Watchtower has been built as an entry into the Summer Joust. There are a lot of interesting techniques and details on show. The frozen river and snow break out from the base, a great way to communicate how wild and uncontrollable the environment is. The wooden pier is a great mini build as are the various pine trees. The tower itself is a good example of using texture to increase the detail of Lego. The brick patterned 1×2 pieces can look fake when too many are lined up, which has been avoided by adding in some green details.
In the Lord of the Rings, the hilltop town of Edoras is the setting of some of the most important scenes. It is most well known as the location of Meduseld, the golden hall, where King King Théoden holds court. The film trilogy found the perfect location to create their version of Edoras. The set was constructed in New Zealand on top of a place called Mount Sunday. After visiting this location in person Balbo2 was inspired to create a Lego MOC of Edoras. The final build is an entry into the Colossal Castle Contest, a challenge to create a micro scale castle. The grasslands of Rohan have been recreated as an elaborate base for the town. The layered tan plates mixed with the rock work looks great. A few fun details include the use of Minifigure hands as flags, a Minifigure crossbow used for wooden detail work in some of the buildings, and a micro scale horse and wagon by the gates.
This Lego Brickheadz of the Witcher Geralt is created by Dr. Zarkow. The figure is based on the iconic design from the video games (not the recent Netflix show). An older and more grizzled Geralt which is reflected with the bright white hair and scars. This Brickheadz figure does a great job of capturing the hairstyle and facial hair. It uses exposed studs to reflect the scruffy beard which is a great use of texture. The 2×3 tan flat plate is a perfect piece, and the scar looks good on Geralt. The Witcher armor on the body is simple. The 1×2 grill plates, and the brown and black details recreates the plated leather armor. The only thing missing from the Witcher is his second silver sword. Now I am wondering what all the other characters would look like in this style… The Crones, Uma, or even Zoltan.
Mad Max: Fury Road had a lot of iconic scenes and characters, but the most memorable is the Doof Wagon. A massive truck completely covered in speakers and sub-woofers. A crew of drummers in the back keep the beat going but the star of the show is the Doof Warrior, also known as Coma. A bungie-jumping flaming guitar player leading the armada in battle. This Lego Doof Wagon is the work of tfcrafter1. They used a bunch of Lego 1×1 rounds and 2×2 dishes to create the wall of sound. One of the best details is the bungie cord system, built here with that weird Lego rope with Minifigure grips. The whole truck has been recreated, and even includes a whole set of drummers in the back. As for Coma, the Lego Minifigure skeleton head is a perfect match to the character from the film.
These Lego Figures of Donald Duck and Daisy Duck (唐老鴨與黛西) are created by Lee Nuo. These brick built figures are very close to Brickheadz in scale, the heads are smaller but the bodies are a bit taller. They also feature super short arms, and longer legs. The limited amount of bricks forces you to get creative with what you have. The 1×1 white clips/connectors being used for arms works surprisingly well. A couple of other fun details include the 1×1 red clip representing a bow tie, and the 1×1 white clip/connector on Donald Duck looks like hair. Those clips certainly get a lot of use here. The hats are also great mini builds, and are instantly recognizable on their characters. A great achievement for only 5-10 Lego bricks each.
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.
Aliens always seem to want to meet the leader. What happens when they do? In countless movies/films it means doom. This Lego MOC of a United States Capital Building Alien Invasion is created by Lame Boy. It is a great example of taking an existing Lego set (in this case the United States Capitol Building 21030) and upgrading it into something that is your own. A few well placed giant Lego flames create the expected destruction. And, the invading alien ships are the retro saucer kind. Held up with some flexible tubing. A couple smoke clouds finish the mod, and a bit of image editing skills help to hide their supports. The end result would fit right in with any B movie special effects production.
