There is a whole world living underwater, and there has never been a better time to go sightseeing. Just catch a ride in a personal submarine and enjoy the depths of the ocean. This underwater sightseeing Lego MOC is created by Cecilie Fritzvold. It has been built as an entry for an Iron Builder challenge, specifically to use the Lego Dynamite in new ways. You can find a bunch of those explosives forming a coral reef, there is also a dynamite used for scuba air tanks, and you can find one in the engine of the submarine. Underwater scenes are a great way to show off just how colorful Lego is. This scene in particular is a great example. Check out all the different colors and weird Lego pieces in the corals. You can see some pink Minifigure hair, green artist palettes, green lightsabers, and a bunch of purple tubes.
Aurora Sievert is one of the top speeder bike pilots around. Her speeder is the Hurricane III. Known for its minimal design which makes it super fast, although not the safest vehicle. This Lego Figure is created by Eero Okkonen, and called “Aurora Sievert and Hurricane III.” The figure was built first and the end result ended up with a lot of style. The blue and yellow color theme looks great with the red and orange highlights. The design for Aurora was inspired by a Lego windshield and solar panel which would become her shirt. The figure has a bunch of interesting stuff incorporated into it, you can find Lego tires used for ankles, blue and yellow flame pieces make great hair, and a pair of Lego Minifigure hands for eyes. The Hurricane was built afterwards to match Aurora’s design. The speeder bike was inspired by the film, Laputa. Some of the pieces are from the themes Aquazone, Ninjago, and Fabuland. This speeder does not look easy to fly, so a complex weave of hoses and tubes hold Aurora for safety.
This is the 8 Ball, a Lego Pod Racer built by David Roberts. This creation was inspired by the big Lego half arch, and wanting to build something with them. The end result is a round pod with a wing/tail. The Lego 8 is a great example of Lego typography. The middle bit is created with two white 1×2 jumper plates, and a black 1×2 flat plate going the opposite way. A simple and perfect solution to achieve that 1/2 stud spacing. Two giant engines bolted onto the back help to push this racer to the finish line, hopefully faster than pods 1-7!
“Lets Cook” is a Breaking Bad themed Lego MOC created by Mr.MOCsProductions. This scene was built as an entry into RebelLUG’s Vignweek contest. The idea was to build someones lair, and there is no better location in Breaking Bad than the RV. This retro styled RV is a great build. Especially the overall shape. The gentle slope of the front end is perfect. Note all the work done to seamlessly blend the slope into the rest of the square vehicle. The Lego wrench used for the door is another great detail. Two little chairs and a desert themed base finish the scene. The cactuses are well built, mostly made up of 1×2 plates. Finally the tan, and brown bricks simulate the desert outside New Mexico well.
Most cars come with a lot of options, especially sports cars. There are so many terms, and initials that could mean almost anything. This Lego Hot Rod, created by Faber Mandragore, is a Model B, and Supercharged. The scene features the car, a vintage gas pump, and some various mini builds. Hopefully the old Octan pumps have premium gas, you want to make sure everything is running at peak performance. The pile of tires is a perfect mini build, but the Hot Rod is the star. It features a few of the common engine building techniques. The Minifigure pistols, the intake, and the radiator are all popular details. What really sets this apart are the wheels. The exposed steering system looks great and is a surprisingly complicated detail. You can find Lego wrenches, a droid arm, crowbars, and axles. Lego Hot Rods are just as popular as their real life counterpart, and this one is one of the best Minifigure scale ones around.
This Lego Speedster is designed by FiliusRucilo. Speedster, Roadsters, Hot Rods, and all sorts of sporty cars are popular to build with Lego. This Minifigure scale vehicle has a very narrow design. The dark red, and black design is a classic paint color for these vehicles. There are a few small details that look great. The use of a Minifigure pistol and a Lego sausage are great pieces to represent engine details. The Nexo Knights shield works well as a hood. The whole build looks like something that could be attempting a world record at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Let’s hope our driver can set that world record!
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?
In the Fallout Wasteland there is nothing better than a Nuka Cola (well maybe some RadAway). This incredibly popular soda pop can be seen all over the land. Lego builder Keith Reed has created this scene, and describes it as such: “A family trying to reach a bomb shelter, takes up refugee in a delivery truck.” The Cadillac style sedan is an excellent rusted Lego car. The use of the different greens mixed with tan and brown works well. It adds a lot to the story; you can guess just how long these people have been trapped in the Wasteland. The blighted landscape is well built, the stagnant green water and the odd mushrooms immediately give off the feeling of sickness. The Lego Nuka Cola truck is appropriately rusted out and even includes a brick built logo on the side. Inside the truck, is the sad realization that the family did not survive the apocalypse. One of the best details in this Lego MOC is the road, the broken up pot holes are expertly created with SNOT techniques, and provides a great contrast to the rough (and stud filled) landscape.
This Lego Mecha, also known as “LHB-025 Dvergr,” is created by Ryuhei Kawai. And, the robot is ready battle. It comes equipped with a huge energy axe, a few small guns, and missiles. Most importantly it comes with its own backup, two little cars equipped with cannons. Each car is slightly different, if you notice the cannons have different colors. The blue car is optimized to be as light as possible. While the yellow vehicle is more armored, but presumably slower than the other. The mecha on the other hand looks like a tank. With huge arms, and relatively small feet. A very solid build that does not look fragile. If LHB-025 Dvergr somehow becomes unbalanced its backup will cause a distraction, until things can get back up and running.
This Lego Tiny Tank is rolling its way to victory. The little tank is built by Tyler. Another Iron Builders build, these have all been trying to use Minifigure Legs / Pants in new and unique ways. You might be able to spy a lot of legs in the tank treads (or is it called a continuous track?). This cartoon’ed version of a tank features a giant top mounted machine gun, and a huge main gun. Presumably firing something a little less deadly. Besides the armaments, a few details to check out include the Nexo Knight shield used as an insignia, and the little diesel fuel exhaust pipe in the back.
