A peaceful afternoon nap. Snoopy is an expert at those. He is a dog after all. Too bad Woodstock seems to have other plans, but only if he can wake up his best friend. This Peanuts inspired Lego Snoopy and Woodstock is the creation of Tyler Sky. It also features the iconic red roofed dog house, and a little tree. Snoopy is napping, but he can get up and move around too. His head, arms (feet?), and feet are all articulated and can be posed in lots of different ways. If you look carefully you can just make it out that Snoopy’s nose is a black spaceman/motorcycle helmet. Woodstock is perched in his nest getting ready for the day. This duo was submitted into Lego Ideas, but sadly it did not get enough votes. Hopefully they can wake up and try again someday.
Trying to find a free Wifi signal can take you to some weird places. Even willingly sitting for hours in a small bathroom. This little Lego MOC is based on the recent film titled Parasite, and is the creation of dewback1. The weird split-level tiled bathroom is one of the films memorable locations. The lego 1×1 flat plates are perfectly misaligned. It is quickly recognizable as a basement. Thanks to the small narrow window, and the spider infestation. One of the best details though, is the sock on the ground. A great use of a Harry Potter piece!
The Mask is one of Jim Carrey’s most iconic films. The blend of live action and old style cartoon works. The extremely animated face of the main star is up to the challenge (with a little bit of help from special effects). This Lego MOC based on The Mask, is the creation of Pistash. It is an entry into the MOC Wars 2020. Specifically the “Not The Bees!” category. The build is instantly recognizable, and just like the source, full of bright colors.
The Alien Xenomorph is an iconic figure in science fiction. Instantly recognizable, and yet it can blend in and hide almost anywhere on a spaceship. Their standard variants of Egg, Chestburster, Facehugger, and Queen are all terrifying. There is also an interesting feature to them. The Xenomorph can be born with some of the aspects of their hosts. The Dragon Alien (dog), Newborn (human clone), Predalien (Predator), Deacon (Engineer), and the Neomorph (spores). This Lego MOC is the creation of _Zenn, and is called the Prowl Xenomorph. It was created for the Space Jame 2018 as an Extraterrestrial Entry. It captures all the details expected of a Lego Xenomorph. Check out the black Lego hands used for the tail, and the Lego arms hidden inside the chest.
Lego Minions are one of the most popular themes for MOCs. Almost everybody seems to like them, and there are a million different ways to build them. So it is no surprise that Lego has officially announced a new Lego Minions Theme. Five sets were revealed at the 2020 New York Toy Fair. The biggest set (and coolest) revealed is 75551 Brick-built Minions and their Lair. It features two substantial brick built minions, Kevin and Stuart. They look great on their own, but they also come with 3 Minion Figures/Minifigures. They also mention that you can rebuild Kevin into Bob, but exactly what is going on is unclear in the photos.
The surprise with this set is that the giant Minions can open up to reveal their hidden lairs/rooms. Kevin opens up into a tall laboratory. Perfect for inventing crazy stuff. While Stuart opens up into a bedroom. Full of toys and games. The new sets also feature Instructions PLUS, a new interactive set of building instructions for your phone and tablet.
The Skeksis are the main villains from the movie The Dark Crystal. They need the Crystal of Truth to retain their immortality. This Lego Skeksis is an immortal MOC created by Hongjun Youn. The model is a great representation of the puppets from the film. They recreate the bird-ish look perfectly. Using only official Lego pieces and no custom bricks. The use of Bionical pieces are a great fit. As is the use of the cloth and linen pieces to help fill out the body. It is really easy to underestimate the volume of this Skeksis, the bad/curved posture makes this thing a lot wider then expected. One really great detail is the staff. Check it out below!
The M577 APC, or Armored Personnel Carrier is the perfect vehicle to take to battle against Aliens. This Lego MOC has all the features including Turret, RE700 Rotary Canon, and DSGR Smart Missiles. There is even room for a small Minifigure crew. Nothing can stop this APC, it is explosion and bullet proof, and can roll over all sorts of terrain. Just make sure not to spill acid around it. This vehicle is the creation of Rick Brickham, and is made up of about 750 pieces.
Helen Sham of Small Bricks Big World – 小積木 大世界 – has been building all sorts of Lego figures. Recently she has been building Batmans. Lots and lots of Batmans. There are at least eight of them, including normal Batman, Rainbow Batman, the Lego Movie Batman, and Fairy Batman. These figures are big, and seem to have a decent amount of motion. Helen has also offered them up for sale, which you can contact her for more details (here).
The best thing is that there are other big Lego figures. Including Robin and the Joker!
These Batman themed brickbuilt figures are all part of a greater series. Which includes Superman, Wonder Woman, Wolverine, Darth Vader, and the Beatles. You can find out a whole lot more information at Helen Sham’s Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/smallbricksbigworld/
Here is a Lego Star Wars collection of brick built figures based on Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. There is Princess Leia (the only human), R5-D4, R2-D2, and C-3PO. They are built mostly in scale with each other. R2-D2 and R5-D4 are great little builds with a lot of character. In fact the R2-D2 reminds me of the new and rare R2-D2 polybag (30611) from Lego. C-3PO is a great build, and a lot of time went into making sure he was perfect. The key was finding all the correct gold pieces. The Lego vent pieces as the torso wiring is a great solution. Last but not least is Princess Leia. Her brick built figure has the famous hair buns, and is much more posable then she looks. Check out the photos below to see what she can do. A rather large set was also built of the space ship Tantive IV. Allowing a recreation of one of the most famous scenes in the series.
The Princess Leia and R2-D2 were built as a tribute for Carrie Fisher and Kenny Baker. Below, you can really see how well these Lego figures work together. The title of this photo is “”Did you miss me?”
This is the Lego version of the Caterpillar P-5000 Powered Work Loader, also known as a Power Loader. It looks like Ripley is ready to fight, rather than power load space stuff. This little build is the creation of Andreas Lenander. Who creatively used the Lego fence piece for the cage. Also check out the joysticks and the tiny feet. Just be advised that an Alien is not included.
