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.
“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.
Homer’s the Odyssey is one of the greatest adventures of all time. Just look at that Lego Odysseus, he looks so happy to see those Sirens. Good thing he is tied up, and those sailors have wax in their ears. Who knows what kind of evil things those Sirens would do.
“One morning, he and his crew, reached a small island, where the half-bird, half-woman creatures, the sirens, dwelled. This monstrous creatures had the most beautiful voice any man could have heard, so when a ship passed in front of them, they sang to the mariners, leading them melodiously to their deaths in the sharp edges of the shore rocks. Odysseus, aware of that, told his crew to put on wax earplugs, so they couldn’t hear the sirens’ song. Besides, he told them to tie him to the mast, for he wanted to listen to the sirens’ song, being sure he will not be able to fulfill the sirens’ macabre plan.” – Homer’s The Odyssey
