This Lego Brickheadz of the Witcher Geralt is created by Dr. Zarkow. The figure is based on the iconic design from the video games (not the recent Netflix show). An older and more grizzled Geralt which is reflected with the bright white hair and scars. This Brickheadz figure does a great job of capturing the hairstyle and facial hair. It uses exposed studs to reflect the scruffy beard which is a great use of texture. The 2×3 tan flat plate is a perfect piece, and the scar looks good on Geralt. The Witcher armor on the body is simple. The 1×2 grill plates, and the brown and black details recreates the plated leather armor. The only thing missing from the Witcher is his second silver sword. Now I am wondering what all the other characters would look like in this style… The Crones, Uma, or even Zoltan.
This is the Lego MOC called “The Fearsome Dragon Knight” which is created by Thomas Jenkins. It is another entry into the latest Iron Builders challenge (there sure are a lot of these!) which is where you try to implement Minifigure legs in unique ways. Here you can see a whole bunch of them if you look carefully. The shield is ringed in legs, the chest armor is made up of legs, the tan underside of the Knight is made of legs as are its nose, ears, and toes! There are probably a lot more hidden too. Some other fun stuff included the giant sword topped off with one of the new Nexo knights shields, and the yellow lever base pieces being used for reptile eyes. This Dragon Knight looks deadly, and would make a formable boss for a group of adventurers.
This is the Lego Knights Mech, or レゴ 軽装型鉄機兵, and is the creation of Moko. The Knight is another great addition to the vast Lego Mech/Robots MOC theme. This mech is a collection of normal Lego pieces and Bionicle. One surprising detail of this build is that the shoulders are upside down Bionicle skulls. Some of those new shield pieces are used in the waist area. This mecha comes equipped with a spear, sword, and shield. Making it ready for any fight. The shield is a giant saw blade, but the sword has a really interesting detail: the guard is an upside down horse armor piece. Even with all the detail, the Knights Mech is still very posable, making it a very dynamic MOC.
The deadly cute duo of Arthur and Tristan is the creation of Aiden.Builds. This inseparable pair have each other backs in a fight. The Lego MOC features an anthropomorphized sword and shield. Each equipped with a smaller version of themselves. This build uses some of those Lego printed eye tiles to great effect. The posable arms, and the mouths also helps to give these weapons some personality. This is a great use of the clear bricks, to help hold and display the characters. These two guys look ready to go on a grand adventure, while getting into some wacky hijinks.
Hollow Knight is one of the best Metroidvania sytle video games out there. It is a mysterious story about a Knight, a little bug, exploring the ancient City of Tears. Along the way odd allies are met while deadly enemies try to stop all. So why not take a brake from all that and join the The Grimm Troupe. A circus that just happens to be town right as everything is going wrong. This is the Lego Hollow Knight which is created by Red. A great MOC that is instantly recognizable. Check out the plates used for the armor, the horns/mandibles, and the fully posable body. Then there is the Nail (the traditional weapon in Hallownest), a super simple build that is perfect. This little bug looks like they are ready to take on the world.
Fire Emblem is the perfect game to get lost in. You can find yourself spending hundreds of hours battling, and developing your characters. Each video game has a huge cast, which can make it hard to stand out in the series. Robin is one of the more recognizable characters from Fire Emblem Awakening. Probably because the character represents the player avatar. Most people renamed Robin, which is the default name in English (Reflet, ルフレ in Japanese). The default name became famous when the character debuted in Super Smash Bros. The character is a Tactician which allows them to use swords and tomes (magic) in battle. But, weak to amnesia.
This Robin MOC, created by Eero Okkonen, depicts the female choice for the character. One great detail is that the hands hold weapons, and can also swap them in and out depending on the pose. Robin comes equipped with a Levin sword, Archfire Tome, and Thunder Tome. Another stand out feature here is the jacket. The buttons and hem have been carefully put together.
“The task assigned to Tarduan was simple enough: kill a certain Platinus commander involved with the planning of invading Daien, and take any intelligence he could while at it. It was good money too. Tarduan’s services usually went to the highest bidder. In these times of war, the government was the highest bidder.
After dispatching the guards, he rushed into the commander’s quarters and slew him with a quick stroke of his sword before his target had a chance to reach for the ceremonial sword on his desk. Flipping through documents, rifling through chests and drawers, he pocketed valuable documents, even ones which were not his target. Those could be easily sold to other kingdoms for good profit. However, something caught his eye. Several maps and aged parchment scrolls describing a certain object. One of the legendary god weapons, named Athor’s Gift. After quickly scanning the description, he was sure that investigating such an artifact would be worth his time. He also noted that the translations had been recorded weeks ago, meaning others would most likely be after it too. Tarduan would have to hurry.” — Legends of Brickdom
An interesting trend has taken hold in the Lego Castle community. The concept of creating a community based fantasy story and recreating scenes and locations in Lego is truly interesting. The Legends of Brickdom is one such story. These groups are currently creating some of the most impressive Lego Fantasy MOCs, vignettes, and scenes. Here is Ryclen’s first entry into the LoB group. The “Assassination” is amazing. Full of details, such as the stained glass, red carpet, the bookshelf, and one very well made desk. This Lego scene looks alive.
