Every full moon some people turn into Weretoads. For one crazy night, every fly around is in danger. The Lego Weretoad MOC is created by Letranger Absurde. Built as an entry into the MOC Wars, where the challenge was to create a Lycanthrope type character that is not a dog or wolf. The end result is a weird mix of human, toad, and monster. The brick built figure features some really interesting parts. You can find Overwatch themed shoulder armor used for the chin/neck, a car hood piece used for the torso, various gray silver/gold bricks in the arms, and even a red horn used for a tongue. A lot of joints feature a full range of motion which means that this Weretoad can be displayed almost any way you can dream of. Just make sure any flies hanging around are safe.
This Lego case is created by Galerie d’Antha. Who wanted a nice way to store and display their collection of Briques Magazine. A popular French Lego and Bricks themed publication. This box was designed to fit the first four issues perfectly. A lot of hard work and thought went into creating the box. A brick built logo is featured running across the top, which features an interesting technique. The curved shapes of the “U” and “S” have curved 1×1 flat plates set inside 1×1 holes. The finished effect is sort of like basic anti-aliasing. The box also features ten collections of printed bricks. They have been organized by theme: Travel, Transport, People, Information, Press, Space, Food, Animals, Time, and Text. There is even a vertical strip of printed tiles that list the date and website. The design can easily be replicated for future collection of issues. The finished Lego box is very interesting, and it looks great displayed.
This is Doctor Novae Fame a Lego figure created by Ivan Martynov. Novae is a natural philosopher of House Pestilence. It is always great to get a little bit of backstory about original characters. This Lego figure is a very interesting collection of pieces. A Minifigure cape is used to create the hood, and two more make up the jacket/robe. A rubber band is used for a belt, which is essential for holding various medicines. A gold ring is used as a bracelet which connects to the clips uses for arms/hands. The headdress uses a rare Roborider disk flipped around (avoids the printed design on the other side). You can even find a custom/non-official shotgun built into the staff.
Pikachu starts out with a lot of cute moves, such as growl and charm. Eventually learning much more deadly attacks. Mecha Pikachu skips all that and knows all the best electric moves. This Lego MOC of Mech Pikachu is created by Lego 7. This Lego figure combines two of the best things: Pokémon and Robots. It has a full range of motion with multiple articulation points. With joints in the feet, knees, shoulders, elbows, writs, fingers, head, tail, and ears it means that this Pikachu is ready for any fight. The build comes with a detailed base, with a pokeball mural and spotlights. The model uses a lot of interesting yellow pieces, mainly construction themed stuff. The striped plates, and various fenders gives Pikachu the appearance of a Transformer. Maybe some secret hidden evolution.
Aurora Sievert is one of the top speeder bike pilots around. Her speeder is the Hurricane III. Known for its minimal design which makes it super fast, although not the safest vehicle. This Lego Figure is created by Eero Okkonen, and called “Aurora Sievert and Hurricane III.” The figure was built first and the end result ended up with a lot of style. The blue and yellow color theme looks great with the red and orange highlights. The design for Aurora was inspired by a Lego windshield and solar panel which would become her shirt. The figure has a bunch of interesting stuff incorporated into it, you can find Lego tires used for ankles, blue and yellow flame pieces make great hair, and a pair of Lego Minifigure hands for eyes. The Hurricane was built afterwards to match Aurora’s design. The speeder bike was inspired by the film, Laputa. Some of the pieces are from the themes Aquazone, Ninjago, and Fabuland. This speeder does not look easy to fly, so a complex weave of hoses and tubes hold Aurora for safety.
This is what happens when the Wizard of Oz gets all mixed up with the Lego Movie. The Wizard of Bricksburg is a mashup created by th_squirrel. It is based off of their Wizard of Oz scene (see below). This version is starring Bad Monkey, the Spacecrow, the Tin Emmet, Lucy, the Cowardly Pirate, and the Wicked Businessman of the West. It is a great example of mixing up Lego collections to create something new. The yellow brick road is a simple collection of 1×2 and 1×1 yellow plates, which lead your eye straight to the Minifigures. A bunch of red flowers are growing off to the side which also help to guide the eye. The brick built background and forced perspective techniques are the highlight of this Lego MOC. Everything is Lego, even the mountains and the Emerald City. What really helps it all fit together is the shallow depth of field from a DSLR camera.
This Lego Nautilus is created by Mitsuru Nikaido. Specifically it is a Mecha Nautilus Mk2-10. This robotic sea creature features a grey and white color palette, there is no color here. The design is amazingly complicated. A system of clips and hinges create the spiral shape, and a whole lot of white plates protect it from harm. There are some surprising Lego pieces to be found. A part of an airplane jet engine is used for the top of the Nautilus, a few Bionicle pieces are around the top, and a Hero Factory logo/icon piece is used for the eye. The tentacle/feeler propulsion system looks especially good. The end result is a very organic Mech, kinda like something you might find in Horizon Zero Dawn.
This Lego Bug is created by Aiden.Builds, and it is one ugly cute bug. The design almost looks like this thing could fit right in with Pokemon. The bug features a huge golden eye, two tiny rounded fangs, and it has six legs (so it is not a spider). Two huge plastic wings (from the official Ant-Man set) fit in perfectly. The stacked brown dishes used to create the head is a very interesting technique. Not quite sure how they are connected… but, the end effect is amazing. If you happen to see one of these ugly cute bugs hanging around your Lego collection make sure not to step on it.
Every pirate captain needs a ship, even undead ones. This cute “Zombie Pirate Ship” is the creation of Lego 7. A tiny personal pirate ship that has been converted for land based travel. This mini build has a lot of features packed in. Besides the wheels, there are mini cannons, a mast and crows nest, the required pirate flag, and even a little captains quarters. A few fun Lego parts you can find in this build include a broom stick, the clips being used for a rudder, and the Minifigure pail/bucket used for the crows nest. Even the sails are brick built. Don’t tell the zombie captain but his ship wheel probably doesn’t turn so well…
The Flying Lion is an Imperial Frigate built by lego_sleepless_night. This Lego ship can run down any pirates operating at sea. The design features a red and black theme with gold highlighting. It matches the flag well. So well that this Lego MOC almost looks like an official release. It fits into the style and scale of the 80s-90s Pirates theme. It has three masts and the techniques used to build them match the old sets. There is even a rope running from stern to bow. A few of the great details include the wings / lionhead on the cabin, the wrap around walkway, and the ladder/ropes all the way up to the crows nest. The frigate comes equipped with a duel anchor system, and even has a monkey stowaway.
