Lego StarCraft: Ultralisk

Lego and StarCraft have always seemed like a great fit. It seems like an official Lego StarCraft theme is probably not in the future. The developers of StarCraft, Blizzard, have recently teamed up with Mega Bloks (the arch nemesis of Lego) to produce World of Warcraft sets. If anything, the mediocre sets produced by Mega Bloks has just increased the desire for an official Lego set. The space creatures and aliens would make for some amazing MOCs. For instance the StarCraft Ultralisk. This build has been scaled back a bit, the Ultralisk is normally 20 meters long, and 5 meters high. An organic tank. The zerg swarm use these alien behemoths to support its zergling and hydralisk armies. Featuring a super strong carapace, gigantic scythes known as “kaiser blades,” and extremely violent tendencies. Any terran marine would be unlucky to cross paths with one of these.

This Ultralisk is an amazing Lego MOC. With good clean lines, no stray studs, and some really inventive uses for basic Lego bricks. Check out the main attraction: those tusks are simply genius. Giving a great impression of an organic structure with incredible deadliness. The properly proportioned feet look perfect for trampling and stomping. Even the Lego built face is pulled off well, with mandibles and and other details bringing this Ultralisk to life. Searching for Lego StarCraft you can find all sorts of amazing builds like this.

Luis Castenada's Lego StarCraft Marine

“You wanna piece of me, boy?”

There are many units from StarCraft and the Space Marine is the most basic Terran infantry unit. Just put him in a bunker and watch him rain death.

This little guy is a very impressive MOC by Luis Castenada. He has been made with an assortment of Lego parts, mostly Hero Factory, mixed in with normal Lego pieces. Although criticized for their lack of usefulness, the Hero Factory Lego parts pop up from time to time in amazing builds. Here they are used in great effect to create the Marines Pressurized Power Suit. The C-14 rifle is also a great example of the standard Lego bricks being put to good use, and looks like it could take out a few hundred Zerg. The only non-Lego piece is the face, which is a painted custom part.

In the past few years this Lego StarCraft Marine has gotten around, even appearing on the cover of BrickJournal: Issue 17. You can check him out on Mark Stafford’s Flickr page:
