Telescopes come in all sorts of different styles. Some of which are amazingly complicated to get set up. Luis Peña has created a small collection of Lego Telescopes. The perfect accessory for your Minifigures to gaze at the stars. Included in this collection are (from bottom left): a Galileo-type Telescope, Newton-type Telescope, a Schmidt-Cassegrain Computerized Telescope, and a Classic Dobsonian Telescope. Each of these mini builds are instantly recognizable, which is a great achievement working at this scale. It looks like these little amateur astronomers are ready to pull an all nighter. The Minigiures just need a Lego solar system to go along with them.
Having to move and adjust the antennae back and forth, desperately trying to find a channel that works while everyone is yelling at you. That is an experience your Lego Minifigures can now experience. This build called “Broken” is the work of LegoLyman. It is an excellent Minifig scale television. A perfect accessory for any house, room, or building. This cathode-ray tube (CRT) style TV has the depth and small screen that is iconic to these old TVs. You can change out the four 1×2 plates and make any pattern you want on the screen. The two silver 1×1 round bricks work perfectly as knobs for adjusting UHF and VHF, and the rabbit ear style antennae on top is great too. If you have a broken Lego lever this is a great way to put it to use. Dunno if you should bend/break new levers for this. Maybe if the Minifigures could replace the bent lever with a new one they could find a channel?
Lego seems to be doing something a little different this time around. With their new Lego Minecraft 2015 (Minifigure Scale) theme they have been releasing sets early to the fan community for reviews. That is completely normal. What is different is that instead of the usual sites getting the exclusive reviews (which normally focus on the AFOL scene), Lego has sent sets out to sites that target to a younger crowd, and famous Minecraft fans. It seems that Lego understands there are two completely different markets for Lego Minecraft. What is also cool, is that these lucky people are creating really slick video reviews. Here we have EvanTubeHD reviewing most of the upcoming Lego Minecraft 2015 sets. It seems that The Ender Dragon (21117) and The Cave (21113) are still pending review. These sets look a lot bigger when they are finished then expected. I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot more Minecraft stuff from Lego in the future…
The Power Loader from Aliens is one of those perfect designs for Lego. All sorts of attempts have been made, in all sorts of sizes. The newest, and maybe cutest is the Mini Power Loader, created by Grantmasters. The goal was to create a Power Loader that get close to the Minifigure scale. This is a great example of non-standard Lego techniques being used to create something awesome. Check out Ripley’s legs, they have been pulled off the standard Lego legs. This lets Ripley and the Power Loader pose in many more dynamic positions. Which will come in handy when fighting Alien Queens.
customBRICKS has created this minifigure scale Lego Apple Macintosh. This micro 128k computer is perfectly simple. Every piece has its place, and no Lego piece is superfluous. This little guy is actually a micro version of Chris McVeighs larger Lego Mac “hello.” which can be seen here. I don’t believe the 128k can get any cuter.
