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.
Monsters, Inc. has been a popular Lego MOC theme for the last couple of months. It always helps when a new movie (Monsters University) is on its way. A Lego Monsters, Inc. build is a little bit difficult. With a lot of round shapes and bright colors it can be hard to get the Lego to look right. Mike Wazowski is an extremely animated character which makes him especially difficult. Although, Dave Shaddix found a great compromise and has created a Lego Mike Wazowski and Door vignette. All of the details from the film are here, the door controls say “42,” the little M logo on the hard hat, and the canister all create a very recognizable scene. Also, the excellent proportions between Mike and the door. Now if only Mike Wazowski can find Boo’s door.
Mike Wazowski and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan are an unstoppable pair of monsters. Both of them successfully managed to save Monstropolis and usher in a new era full of laughter. Monsters, Inc is one of Pixar’s best films, and its prequel (Monsters University) has recently hit theaters. What kind of adventures did these two monsters get into during college? Maybe it’s time to go watch the film. A tiny Lego Boo would turn this duo into a frighteningly awesome trio.
