This Lego Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K) build is the creation of Chris Doyle. The scene features the host Mike, and the robot Gypsy. The original television show started in 1988, and continues on (in some form) today. A human and a few robots are aboard the spaceship The Satellite of Love, and are forced to take part in an experiment: to see what happens to humans when forced to watch terrible movies. This scene feature Mike, the second human host to take part in the experiment. This Lego build depicts the moment between bad movies, when Mike and the robots are getting into all sorts of wacky situations. Mike is a great caricature and looks very animated. Check out those Lego hands, the solution for thumbs works well. Gypsy the purple robot is instantly recognizable. In another photo, you can see Cambot is also hanging around, and a mirror is used to show off the design. An excellent use of a Lego tire. Will Lego Mike Nelson ever finish the experiment, or will he finally escape?
The big duel from The Last Jedi is when Luke and Kylo Ren face off on the salty planet of Crait. This Lego MOC called “Luke vs. Kylo Ren on Crait” is the work of BlueBrick. The scene features the striking white and red landscape of Crait. There are two main techniques used to make the scene instantly recognizable. The center is built with the bricks turned up on their sides. Allowing for smaller and more narrow details. This is then integrated and hidden by building a border around everything. These SNOT techniques make great display bases. Kylo is a kicking up the salt while Luke is much more calm. A great detail from the film.
Star Wars and its universe encompass many many planets. Hundreds of them, and if you count the non-canon “Expanded Universe” it might even be thousands. This Lego MOC titled “Christophsis” is the creation of Elven Ranger. It features a Lego version of one of those Star Wars planets. Christophsis was first depicted in The Clone Wars, around 2008. It is located along the Outer Rim and is a planet known or its huge crystalline forests. This little out of the way location ended up being of huge importance, being the site of many battles. The Lego version is a great 16×16 stud scene. The build feature a great hexagonal floor pattern with bricks laid out on their side. The whole scene also contain blue and green crystals which create a very alien looking Lego MOC.
Westworld is an interesting show. Originally based off a book by Michael Crichton. The newest version is a complicated narrative about humans and androids. While navigating the amoral Wild West, everyone seems to be trying to solve The Maze. A way to unlock the trapped android mind. This collection of Lego Westworld themed Minifigures is the creation of XxDeadmanzZ. Almost all the main characters have been represented here: Maeve Millay, William, Teddy Flood, Bernard Lowe, Opening Credits Figure, Robert Ford, Dolores Abernathy, The Man in Black, Logan, and Hector Escaton. Can any of them escape, or are they stuck in the new narrative?
Meet the Household Arrival People Introducer Robot, or HAPI for short. This little lego robot is the creation of Tom Gerardin. It features one of the new Lego Dots, which is a new theme focused on emoji and smiley faces. Normally used for bracelets and accessories. Just goes to show that you can borrow from any Lego theme to make your creations. Standing about as tall as two minifigures with a lot of personality squeezed into its frame. Check out the robot pauldron used for the head, and the minifigure laser guns for the jets on the back. It looks like HAPI might hang out with the Mixels in its spare time.
“Chapter 3: The Sin” is the latest creation by @ctr_bricks, and is another entry in their series of Lego Mandalorian MOCs. A recent Star Wars theme that has been exploding with creations. The Sin is a highly detailed city scene filled with aliens, bounty hunters, and smugglers. A very bustling street. Here the Mandalorian is on a mission to rescue Baby Yoda. The planet Nevarro has a lava setting, some of which can be seen peaking out between the stones. Check out some of the little details: the lego dice being used for an electronic box, the various space junk littering the scene, and the interesting curtain/doorway design.
This is the Lego K-9 Multi-Purpose Support Unit, built by Red. This cyber-dog is part of bigger team, and looks ready to go on a mission. The various robot looking augmentations, face shield and antennae, are all sleek modifications to the dog body. This build is super smooth. With great curves, which are very hard to achieve with lego. Check out the hind legs, and the front chest area. The end result is is a doberman robotic dog that looks like it leapt right out science fiction (or, maybe cyberpunk?) In fact, his brother might just be “Rex,” from Fallout New Vegas.
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.
It seems that Death Stranding is a bit polarizing. Either the best game of the year, or the biggest disappointment. No matter what you may think of the recent video game, you have to give credit to an amazing amount of creativity in the characters. Jonas Kramm has recreated five of those characters as Death Stranding Lego minifigures. Represented in this collection is (from left to right) Fragile, Die-Hardman, Sam Porter Bridges, Higgs, and an otherwordly BT. A few of the details to note is the futuristic umbrella, the extremely large backpack, and the whole BT setup. It all works very well in Lego.
“The Klingon Bird of Prey is, since I can think of, my favorite Spaceship-design and as well the one, which inspired me the most in my childhood and all my own spaceship Models.
After completing the BoP as virtual Model (2008-2010), it was always a dream of me to build it some time with real bricks. I’m really lucky the dream became true six years later!” — Kevin J. Walter
This is a Lego Klingon Bird of Prey, created by Kevin J. Walter. It is a beautiful MOC based on Star Trek. This model was first built digitally, which allowed every piece and brick to be carefully thought out. This served as a “rough draft” for the physical model. There are so many details to take in. The wings are absolutely amazing. The patterns created between the brown structure and the green paneling is something unique. The color combinations lend this model an almost copper color.
What really makes this model stand out is the photography. The masked model with black backgrounds looks good and helps sell this as a starfighter. The downside is that we do not get to see the support structure that holds this ship up. Then there are the photos where the Bird of War has been placed in other photographs using an image editor. The Golden Gate bridge (above) and the Warp scene (below) creates an illusion where the Lego bricks fade away and the ship becomes real.
