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.
Record players come in all sorts of different shapes and styles. Some are big and boxy, while others can look like a toy VW Bus. One of the newest styles is the Spinbox. A cardboard based player that you can assemble yourself. The whole package has everything you need including speakers, an amp, knobs, and all the electronics needed to get it working. It takes about 15 minutes to get it up and running. This Lego version of the Spinbox is created by jhuangtw. This version of the vinyl record player is also surprisingly detailed. A Lego Minifigure pistol is used to make the cartridge and needle, with a simple arm attaching it to the base. A neat feature is that you can take it apart and can find a fully detailed interior. The end result looks great, and makes a great display piece. A brick built figure would be happy to listen to one of these turntables.
Ark Builds has recreated their Music Studio in Lego. The main attraction is the Fender Rhodes and Wurlitzer Electric Pianos. These two pianos are amazingly accurate for the scale they have been built in. The Fender Rhodes Piano features a sleek case, the left side controls, and its folding legs. The Wurlitzer Piano features its center controls, and sheet music holder. Both of these are based on their portable versions. Also included are two studio speakers, a piano bench, foot pedal, microphone, and a potted plant. The rope wrapped around the microphone is an especially nice detail. The feet holding up the plant look great too! This Lego Music Studio would make any person (and Minifigure!) excited to play some music.
Stuck at home? Have some free time? No better time to pick up a new hobby, or learn to play an instrument. This Bedroom Guitarist Lego MOC is the creation of Kev.the.Builder. They were inspired by their own childhood experience of practicing as a kid. The guitar practice scene was built as an entry into the Lego Ideas “Music to Our Ears!” contest. The winners of which will be considered for a Product Idea Review. The build features a lot of SNOT techniques with an excellent parquet patterned floor, trim around the door frame, a striped wall, and bedroom furnishings. Apparently the bed took some extra time to get just right. Which after guitar practice will be a great spot to take a break. The bedroom is an excellent recreation of a kids room, it actually looks lived in. But most importantly the dog and chameleon make for a great audience for the guitar player.
Studying for school, doing homework, these things go by a lot quicker with some good music. “The Rock & Roll Dream” is a Lego MOC created by DOGOD Brick Design. Inspired by their own experience of finishing their studies before rocking out. This build has a few really nice details. The lion figure is a great design. The bushy beard works well with the different browns. The hands are especially well done. It is hard to fit all five fingers on a hand when building with Lego, but here just one or two fingers are represented per hand, giving the impression of more. The desk is well made, the bars and small joints combine well to give the impression of metal legs. On top of the desk an old CD player is hooked up to a pair of headphones. The headphones are perfect. The Lego tires for ear cups, and the droid arms combine well. The huge guitar in the background features strings made out of Lego grates, and good flowing curves. When the studies have been completed the reward of rock and roll will be all the sweeter.
Grab your Awesome Mix cassette tape, a few batteries, and don’t forget your Walkman. It’s time to go on an adventure, and maybe save the galaxy. This is the Lego Walkman, specifically the Sony TPS-L2 Walkman, built by H.Y. Leung. The iconic blue, silver, and orange portable cassette player was first released in 1979. This Lego version has the clear window, all the various buttons and sliders, and even the duel headphone ports. The orange foam headphone covers stand out, a very hard shape to make with Lego. A smooth flatish oval with no studs showing. The only thing not Lego here is the headphone cord. The whole build even come with two different cassette tapes. Featuring the Awesome Mix Vol. 1 from Guardians fo the Galaxy, and a blank tape ready to record whatever. Both can be inserted and removed from the Lego Walkman.
Mr. Radio is a Lego MOC built by Brohirrim. It was inspired and submitted into the Lego Ideas “Music to our ears!” contest. A challenge to build “anything and everything to do with music” and the top four winners get prizes, and maybe even a chance at a Product Review. This Lego radio is an old cabinet design, with built in speakers and even a surprise or two. The gold colored detailing and the cut out design for the speakers is a really great detail. Even the channel indicator in the center, being a Lego compass, works well. The big secret is the radio lab hidden inside. Where you can go tinker and broadcast all day and night. The front panel opens up and you can even see the backside of the speaker drivers.
The Lego Batman Movie has an amazing soundtrack. Make sure to listen to the films main single, it sums up the character from the film extremely well. “Who’s The (Bat)Man” is written and performed by Patrick Stump of the band Fall Out Boy. The song has a way of staying in your brain long after listening to it. “I’m 100% not Bruce Wayne!”
The other title track from the movie is “Friends Are Family,” with Jeff Lewis and Will Arnett. This is a more typical/expected pop song from the film, and it feels like it could fit right in with The Lego Movie.
The Flight of the Conchords are a humorous folk band from New Zealand. They are most well known for their great HBO television show. It has been years since the show ended and the band has recently reunited for a tour. So it is no surprise to see a new Lego FOTC MOC.
There are a total of four vignettes in the series. The iconic bedroom, a tiny kitchen, a stage, and Murray’s office. Each one of these scenes is instantly recognizable and is great for displaying the Minifigures. Of which, we have four. There are the main characters Jemaine and Bret, the band manager Murray, and the crazy fan Mel. These are spot on, and no one is going to get these Minifigs mixed up.
