This Lego Roy is looking for an invitation to Smash Bros. Roy is one of the many Fire Emblem fighters who just happens to fight with a sword. His first Smash was all the way back on the Gamecube with Melee. Where swords were not as popular. This little guy comes equipped with a red cape, fancy gold accented armor, and a striking red hair cut. Smash makes for a great theme for lego MOCs, but imagine a whole Lego Smash Bros. game. Maybe some day.
Stardew Valley is a modern day classic video game about managing and running a farm. Heavily influenced by the Harvest Moon series, Stardew Valley has surpassed it in every way. Starting the game with an old run down farm, and eventually turning it into a virtual paradise is surprisingly relaxing. The Brick Art has created a great Lego Stardew Valley MOC for Lego Ideas. Here 1568 pieces combine into a modular farm. The huge selling point is the upgradable buildings and land. The whole build has also been built to scale, doing its best to match the video game. There has also been considerations taken to be able to add on or expand the farm. Maybe some day the local town, caves, and coast, will be created…
Lego and Animal Crossing seem like they would be a great fit. Depending on how you count there are almost (or more) than 500 villagers that appear in the video game series. One of which is named Octavian. In Animal Crossing he is known as a cranky octopus who is really into outer space and aliens. The octopus type of villager is one of the more rare types to visit, making Octavian rather special. This Lego Octavian is the creation of Dave Foreman. Everything is official Lego pieces, and on the purple cone is a custom star that probably took a lot more work then expected.
If you are looking for something similar, there is an old Lego theme called Fabuland, which shares a lot of concepts. Animal villagers living and working around town.
It seems that Death Stranding is a bit polarizing. Either the best game of the year, or the biggest disappointment. No matter what you may think of the recent video game, you have to give credit to an amazing amount of creativity in the characters. Jonas Kramm has recreated five of those characters as Death Stranding Lego minifigures. Represented in this collection is (from left to right) Fragile, Die-Hardman, Sam Porter Bridges, Higgs, and an otherwordly BT. A few of the details to note is the futuristic umbrella, the extremely large backpack, and the whole BT setup. It all works very well in Lego.
“By reading air currents, it can predict things such as the weather or its foe’s next move.”
Espeon is one of the many evolved forms of Eevee, one of the most popular Pokémon. If you give Eevee a Sun Shard it will evolve into this psychic form. The defining features are its purple fur, red gem, and forked tail. All of which are perfectly represented by this Lego Espeon made by retinence. The overall shape is what really makes it stand out. The gentle curves and angles make for a striking silhouette. Also the light purple pieces really help make it stand out.
Lego Racers is one of those early 3D games from the late 90s. Specifically 1999. Even though this is around the same time Lego Star Wars was released, the game only features original Lego themes. Choose from a selection of drivers and racers from classic Lego themes such as: Pirates, Space, and Lego City. You can even mix and match, and create your own racer. Which you will need to do, as you will eventually have to go up against Rocket Racer.
Lazy Game Reviews, or LGR, has put together a great eight minute video showing off the whole game. LGR even offers some tips on how to get the video game to run. Check it out here: https://youtu.be/qNBFNFbFlNo
According to Cecilie Fritzvold, this is what happens when you play Pokemon Go while driving. They created this humorous Lego MOC as part of an Iron Builder compitition. The challenge piece is the new Modified 2 x 3 Pentagonal Tile, which first started showing up in Nexo Knights sets. They made a convincing tire tread, which is something that would have been hard to do without these tiles. Poor Pikachu.
The Nintendo NES Classic has proven to be more popular then anyone planned. Months after the release the NES Classic is still extremely rare. The other down side is that it only 30 games. You can wait around to buy one of these, or you can build your own (which some people might consider better). You just need a Raspberry Pi B+ and some technical knowledge. Best of all you can even build your own NES case out of Lego. WayGroovy has done just that. This MOC is based on the work by Chris McVeigh. With a few modifications WayGroovy was able to fit the whole thing in an amazingly small package.
The best part is that they documented the process, so you can build one yourself. Check out the Lego NES Pi Case here: http://imgur.com/a/8EeyD
The NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) controller is the most iconic design of video gaming. The grey, black, and red are instantly recognizable. This Lego version is the creation of Chris Maddison. Who built this MOC for the Iron Builder 5.0 competition. The challenge piece is the new Nexo Knights shield. You can find them being used to recreate the D-Pad. The Start and Select buttons are another perfect recreation. The whole thing makes you want to try out the famous Konomi code: Up, Up, Down, Down…
The King of All Cosmos has been drinking again and has made a mess. Destroying the universe. Good thing the little Prince is there to clean everything up. He starts by rolling everything up into a Katamari, a sticky ball. Katamari Damacy is known for its weird art style, concept, and gameplay. But, the game is most famous for its awesome soundtrack. It is weird that this video game series has been struggling to find a place with the newer gaming systems. For now we can just create our own adventures. Matt De Lanoy has created a Lego Katamari Damancy MOC. Featuring the ball and the Prince. This was part of an Iron Builder competition.
