A bicycle can offer a feeling of freedom unmatched by almost any other vehicle. If I could ride a bike all day I would. This Lego Bicycle Automaton, created by parsom, offers just that fantasy. The first thing you notice is that the automaton feature is on full display. The design mimics the design of a bike, with a chain and two wheels. By turning the small crank the Minifigure will start riding, with wheels turning and the background changing. Every season is represented, it doesn’t matter if it is sun or snow, nothing will stop a good bike ride. This Lego MOC is up on Lego Ideas, so make sure to vote for it if you want to see something like this released by Lego. There is also a video to check out (below), which shows how everything works.
Animal Park is a huge Lego creation built by Anne Mette Vestergård and Lasse Vestergård. This Lego Friends styled Zoo is full of plants and animals. Originally created in 2015, Animal Park got an update in 2020. The new version features new animals and new plants that were released after 2015. Animal Park was recently on display at Lego World in Copenhagen, Denmark. This is one of those massive Lego models that is best seen in person.
Just like many theme parks and zoos around the world, this park features a train circling its border. Once inside the Lego Friends can enjoys a water show by the entrance fountains. Afterwards they can grab a bite to eat in the food court. Pizza is always a good choice!
This Lego zoo has all the animals. The bears are enjoying some fish, while the polar bears and their cubs are also having a fish snack. The penguins and seals seem happy, but may be a bit jealous watching the bears eat.
The Friends might spot some elk, a pack of wolves, some hungry panda bears, a few giraffes, some turtles, a flock of flamingos, and even some deer. Basically, any and all of the Lego animals are here.
There are even a few secrets to look out for. Olaf from Frozen is hiding around the park, as is Sweet Mayhem from the Lego Movie 2. Before you finish the day, make sure to visit the ferris wheel, and catch a ride on the train!
There is something about a train that can capture the heart and imagination. Offering a scenic ride through mountains, forests, farms, and cities. Trains are often a more relaxing way to travel. Even commuter trains tend to put their riders to sleep with their rhythmic movement along the tracks. As a way to combat anxiety, Elemental_Lego built this Lego MOC, called “Train Ride.” An imagining of a steam train rolling through a forest in the midst of fall, crossing across a calm lake. This is an excellent Lego build. The microscale train ride uses some surprising Lego pieces. The most interesting is the Unikitty Lego scarf, repurposed as steam exhaust. Then there is the forest being a variety of hairbrushes, blades, unicorn horns, and other miscellaneous horns. The whole scene is tied together with a well built black base. Now where can a Minifigure or Microfigure buy a ticket?
