This Lego “Astronaut” is a creation of R 194. A mouse seems to have found itself on the moon in this comical Lego MOC. The mouse is outfitted an a very bulky spacesuit, with a giant air tank on the back, and room for its ears on top. It looks like the way into the suit is by the giant valve on the top. The Lego moon that the astronaut has found itself sitting on is an anthropomorphized crescent. The yellow frog on the tip of the moon is a fun detail. While the mouse looks like it is trying to find a way to eat a chunk of moon cheese. And, I like to think the viynl record on the back of the spacesuit is a copy of Fly Me To The Moon.
Put on some headphones, pull up a chair, and start up a game. It’s time to go questing. Playing games with friends is one of the best ways to spend your spare time. This Lego MOC, called “The Quest,” is built by Joe. This Lego battlestation features a keyboard, mouse, speakers, and a monitor as seen from a first person view. The video game scene is the main focus, with a group of five friends outside huge castle walls. The brick built sunset is a great background. Then there is the keyboard. If you look you might notice that all the main keys are actually Minifigure legs / pants. A creative use for these pieces (although showing upincreasingly ininteresting ways). The lego hand is a great detail, and it even features purple nail polish. And, finally, a weird duck model which is a great MOC all on its own.
This Lego MOC called “Symmetrio’s Workshop” is the creation of Markus Rollbühler. Built as part of the “Style It Up!” challenge put on by InnovaLUG, where the specific goal was to build with symmetry. Symmetrio’s Workshop is a mysterious place where you will be seeing double everything. Everything is so exact, it almost feels like a spot-the-differences or hidden-items challenge. Not one (to my eye) item is different between the two sides. All of this has been built using the SNOT style. Most notably with the walls and windows, there sure are a lot of tiles. Ultimately, there is an insane amount of fun little details hidden away in this scene. For instance, look at the treasure chests for the desk legs, the patterned floor boards, the buckets of crabs, and even matching mouse traps. The question now being, are there two mice, or just one really clever one?
You too can relive 1984 with this Lego Apple Macintosh 128k. Ryan McNaught built the Mac, and almost everything else on the desk out of Lego. The Rubik’s Cube, Pencil/Pen Cup, the Pens, Calculator, Rolodex, and even that little Pencil are all Lego. The only thing that is not are the wires connecting the keyboard and mouse. This MOC took Ryan over 22 hours to build with some 4,500 pieces. There are so much beige bricks. Some of the best details include the retro multi-colored Apple logo, the keys on the keyboard, and the plates used as the rolodex cards. But the best detail is the screen and icon. This Lego Mac seems a little less happy then normal.
Lego has been making Disney related stuff for a while now. Toy Story, Princesses, Star Wars, Marvel Super Heroes, etc. But, they have never made anything with Disney’s iconic animated mascots. No Mickey Mouse, no Donald Duck, no Goofy. That might change in the future, but for now Lego and Disney fans must create their own. This Lego Mickey Mouse figure is the creation of Alanboar, who built Mickey for his son. It features a very animated pose, and is amazingly expressive for a brick built figure. The massive feet, and the mouse tail are some of the highlights. This MOC is spot on. Just check out the silhouette of Mickey Mouse. The round design of Mickey has been preserved well, especially considering the use of basic bricks here.
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.
There are a few iconic computer designs. One of the most recognizable is the original Apple Macintosh, also known as the Macintosh 128k. With its 512 × 342 black and white display happily greeting the world with a friendly “hello.” Chris McVeigh, aka: powerpig, has created one of the most popular Lego MOCs of one of the most popular computers. There are even free instructions available at http://chrismcveigh.com/cm/welcome.html. You can also buy a custom kit based on the 128k Mac. Hopefully the Lego version is a bit cheaper then the original $2,495 price tag.
