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.
“Dreri, Light of the Forest” is a Lego MOC created by Cody Avery. Originally built for the Bio-Cup 2020, which the theme was Eastern Europe. The word Dreri means Deer in Albanian. Based on folklore where the cult of the sun is connected with deer, which is one of the sacred animals. This brick built animal is made up of a combination of Bionicle and Lego System parts. The deer has a lot of interesting things going on with it. The hooves are created with two claws which have been angled toward each other to get the final shape. You can also find a pair of wings being used as butt cheeks. And, the massive antlers use a bunch of white bananas and hot air balloon pieces. A hidden support structure is used to balance the figure, which allows more delicate building techniques in the feet and legs. In the background, a old knobby tree is holding on to life. Built with a bunch of Chewbacca figure parts. Cody Avery assures us that no Wookiees were hurt in the process.
It looks like Benny has been self-quarantining up in space. He brought all the stuff needed for a long stay: soda, t-bone steaks, Lego sets, and toilet paper. This Lego MOC called “Benny’s Quarantine” is created by EMazingbrix. Built for the recent Brickzlab Challenge, where the goal was to create a self-isolation scene with at least two walls. The final vignette has one giant wall on a diagonal, featuring a giant window with a brick built space scene. Off to the side is a tiny wall that connects at an angle. A lot of work went into getting the two to connect as tightly as possible. The base features multiple SNOT techniques to get everything flat. Benny looks like he appreciates it, any sharp corners or studs could mean doom in his space suit. Although I am not so sure what he is going to use a crate of TNT for…
In the science fiction series The Expanse, a group of main characters find themselves in possession of the Rocinante. Previously known as the Donnager, a small warship built by the Martian Congressional Republic Navy (MCRN). The Expanse has a bunch of unique spaceship designs, almost all of which are clunky purpose built machines. This Lego version of the Rocinante is created by Kevin J. Walter. It features the grey color scheme used to hide the ships origins. A lot of the little details have been preserved converting it down to this small scale. Including communications gear (Lego walkie-talkies), the various cannons and PDCs (the little Minifigure roller skates add a lot of detail), and the giant engine (the Minifigure hands are a great detail). This Lego build has a lot of creative part use, check out some of those complicated shapes in the hull. A little hard to see as the flat grey appearance hides a lot of the details, as intended.
Some Minifigures prefer to live under expansive domes topped with red roofs, while others like to live in rectangular buildings with classically sloped blue roofs. And, even though they have a river flowing between them, they still have a bridge connecting them. This Lego build of a micro Castle City is created by Isaac. The little Lego city is a Summer Joust 2020 Vignette Prize. An incredible amount of details has been fit into this city. By using a variety of pieces with different textures, it gives the illusion of more detail. Check out the 2×2 round flat plates sandwiched together which creates windows. The use of the 1×2 bricks with technic beam holes is another great way to create windows. Another good small detail is the Nexo Knights shields used so show the water flowing.
The Wizards by the Coast is a Lego MOC built by Josh. A few wizards are enjoying their time off from saving/destroying the world. The build has a bunch of interesting and odd details. The first is the giant terraced garden with water magically flowing down each level until it meets up with the sea. A fun part of the scene is how the water changes from transparent clear, to transparent blue when it hits the ground. There is a giant butterfly feeding on some flowers atop a spiraling spire. And a very tiny Wizards tower is topped by a glowing crystal. A magical spell must fit a glorious interior inside the small tower. A few details that are neat include the Lego Minifigure ice cream being used for waves, the bee hive above the rocky cliff, and the Wizard using magic to grill up some fresh fish.
