The Inklings are the coolest squids around. Their street style mixed with their talent to ink everything in sight makes them some of the most memorable video game characters. By far the best new series from Nintendo in the past decade. A Splatoon Lego theme would look great. These Lego Inklings are created by Lego 7. The figures come equipped with their own specialized weapon/tool, a Splattershot, a Splat Roller, and a Splatterscope. Each item is instantly recognizable and they are even color coordinated with their Inkling. The Lego figures are able to be displayed in a variety of poses, achieved by a variety of small clips. Some of the coolest features include the brick built headphones, the ink tanks on their backs, and their eye design. Each figure also comes with a display base. There is even a Splatoon Squid swimming up the side of the tallest column. Then there is the variety of stickers that do a great job representing the graffiti/stickers all over each level.
Somewhere between retrofuturism and the atomic age swims this lego Squid Sub. A creation of Peter Carmichael. The submarine is an entry into MOC Wars 2020, specifically challenge 19: “Seafaring Is Needed.” The guidelines for the challenge include a swimming vessel, and a witty defense mechanism. Check out some of the details, there is jelly fish on the left, the ink cloud being released, and the colorful coral. The best feature are the 2 pilots, never have lego minifigures been more excited to be exploring the deep sea. Although, it looks like they could use a martini.
“The seaweed is always greener
In somebody else’s lake
You dream about going up there
But that is a big mistake
Just look at the world around you
Right here on the ocean floor
Such wonderful things surround you
What more is you lookin’ for?”
This Under the Sea MOC vignette, by Grim Lock, creates its own story. Deep sea divers go searching for treasure, divers find treasure and giant squid. Giant squid kills one diver, and now the treasure goes to the last one standing. Man vs. Squid, who will win?
This little Lego vignette is impeccable. Great rocks in the background, a good use of tiles to create the sandy ocean floor, and a good selection of treasure strewn about the beasts lair. Then, by only showing a few tentacles emerging from a tiny cave, it leaves the rest of the monster up to your imagination. Good stuff.
“After the death of the Emperor Palpatine and Lord Vader, the Empire made a last ditch attempt to thwart their enemies by rushing to complete their fleet of Venator class super star destroyers. However, by the time these vessels could be deployed, the Rebel Alliance had already developed its own super weapon, designation KR-KN.”
Iain Heath, also known as Ochre Jelly on Flickr, created Release the KR-KN! His original goal was to liven up the Super Star Destroyer from is grayness. Make sure to read the whole store here. Lets make this happen in Star Wars VII.
