Aliens always seem to want to meet the leader. What happens when they do? In countless movies/films it means doom. This Lego MOC of a United States Capital Building Alien Invasion is created by Lame Boy. It is a great example of taking an existing Lego set (in this case the United States Capitol Building 21030) and upgrading it into something that is your own. A few well placed giant Lego flames create the expected destruction. And, the invading alien ships are the retro saucer kind. Held up with some flexible tubing. A couple smoke clouds finish the mod, and a bit of image editing skills help to hide their supports. The end result would fit right in with any B movie special effects production.
This is the Millennium Batwing created by amusered. It is an epic crossover between Lego, Star Wars, and Batman. Specifically, the red, black, and grey colors fit in with Batman Beyond. This is not a part swap build of the Lego Millennium Falcon, it is a wholly unique design. The biggest differences include the cockpit, and in the front the connected mandibles (is there a better term for those?). From design to the finished build the whole project took about a year. There is an incredible amount of greebling here. So many ports, grills, tubes, hoses, and transparent pieces. You can even find a pair of Lego keys. There is a furnished interior, but that will remain a mystery. I like to think that Batman spends some of his time playing chess. A question about this Batwing that comes to mind is… does Batman let Robin pilot?
The “Destroyer Horizon” is a Lego Starfighter created by ZCerberus. It is a massive build that uses a lot of orange pieces. A relatively rare color in the world of Lego. In addition to the general color choices, the brown stripes look great. Designed with SNOT techniques you would be hard pressed to find any exposed studs. While this Starfighter is patrolling outer space the crew can keep themselves entertained. This creation is hiding a huge secret. Packed into every open space in the interior is a full gaming PC. The ship can transform and reveal a built-in 1080p LCD screen. Powering the ship is a SFX Power Supply, Ryzen 2400G Processor, an B450 ITX Motherboard, and multiple fans. There is even a completely hidden power button along the bottom. The end result is an impressive rig, especially since it has to fit into a Lego MOC. A perfect creation to play Homeworld, Star Citizen, and the new Lego Star Wars game.
This Lego space fighter is landing, or maybe taking off in this Tensegrity Sculpture built by Lego Mfr. The optical illusion is a popular new trend in Lego MOCs, and there are some surprising creations. Some of the best are the ones that emphasize the space between the two parts. In this build, that would be the rocky outcropping and the hovering space fighter. Lego ropes and chains have been the favorite pieces to use for the key tension based structure. The ropes blend into the scenery better, while the chains work best when they are supposed to be seen. This build is one of the taller tensegrity creations out there. It uses a lot of SNOT techniques, and the end result would look great on its own. A quick question though, did the space ships engines start a fire, or is the ship hovering over an open lava pit?
This is the 10-SGTY Racer a Lego MOC created by lokiloki29. They built a Lego Tensegrity Sculpture to achieve the hovering spaceship effect. A building technique that has exploded in popularity in the last few weeks. Most of them use Lego chains to hold the weight and balance the floating parts. This creation uses Lego ropes / strings. It helps the spaceship look like it is tethered down, yet ready to depart at any moment. The hanger design is well detailed too. With SNOT techniques used to achieve a more detailed and cleaner base. The yellow boxes created out of Lego plates, and the extra grates on the big Lego grates are great details. The platform lift / gantry is what really helps pull everything together. The appearance of it being on wheels hides its real purpose of being the support structure that is holding up the starfighter. A quick climb up to the walkway and now our pilot is board!
Lego has announced their newest Lego Star Wars Ultimate Collectors Series set. This year the infamous A-Wing Starfighter (75275) will be blast off. These UCS sets have been released near May 4th, and this year is no different. The A-Wing in comprised of 1,672 pieces, and officially go on sale on May 1st for $199.99/€199.99.
The A-Wing is infamous for taking out the massive Super Star Destroyer by crashing into the bridge. The pilot from that mission is Arvel Crynyd of Green Squadron, who appears as a Minifigure in this set. Beside being features in Return of the Jedi, the A-Wing can be found in Star Wars Rebels.
This Ultimate Collectors Series A-Wing has a couple of features that are not noticeable from photos. There are pivoting laser cannons, and even an easily removable canopy. Inside the cockpit is a fully detailed interior with a pilots chair, and full flight controls.
Stephanie spends a lot of time outdoors, riding horses, swimming, playing soccer, and riding a jetski. But did you know she is one of the best X-Wing fighter pilots in the galaxy? Her Lego Friends X-Wing is roughly the same scale as the official Star Wars X-Wings. It features a unique white, purple, and pink paint style. It has all the normal starfighter stuff: engines, s-foils, proton torpedo launchers, and glass canopy. The best feature is the astromech navigation system, or should it be called astrodog navigation system? Currently the best system to help target tennis balls with. This Lego Friends X-Wing also includes a clear display stand, and a small skiff for transporting goods and crew with. The Rebel helmets look great on the Lego Friends figures.
This is the Lego Cubo Scout Drone, created by Milan Sekiz. This cute little drone is based on the 1980’s Blacktron theme. The black, yellow, and red colors are very striking. You can tell because of all the black, that this drone is up to some bad stuff. The design of this spaceship when folded up is a cube. With one corner featuring an ominous red window. A Lego light brick is placed inside to achieve the red light effect. The scout can unfold itself and open into a more traditional spaceship design. With two wings and engines. The whole this even comes with a stand, that holds the ship on its corner. It all fits together well, emphasizing the geometric design.
“ARRRR! The Space Pirates are here to plunder yer moon treasures.”
This Classic Space Pirates Lego MOC is a creation by captainsmog. Built as an entry into the MOC Wars 2020, category 23, Thar Be Pirates. The goal is to take any of the Lego themes and add pirates. The scene features an innocent Spaceman being hunted down by a small group of space pirates. The star of the build is the space ship. (Or is it a land space ship?) The six wheel vessel is manned by the four meanest pirates this side of Luna. Being lead into battle by a mean skeleton spaceman figurehead. The classic blue and yellow design is a perfect fit and makes everything feel old. Perfect for a pirate theme. What kind of treasure could they be hunting for? Maybe the are on a quest for the fabled moon cheese.
“The Kanalia” is a sleek and open star fighter. Piloted by Himura Satoichi. This Lego MOC has one of the most interesting cockpits. This openness has been achieved by combining three separate canopies. The ship is outfitted with multiple guns, and looks like it could hold its own in a fight. With a striking yellow and grey color scheme. The Kanalia stands out. It is also great to see landing gear.
