The Big Bad Wolf gets into many dubious adventures. Often cast as a villain in various fairy tales. The most famous of which is Little Red Riding Hood. This Lego figure is based on the pivotal scene in which the girls faces off with the wolf. The build is created by PaleoBricks and called “The better to eat you with!” The wolf is an entry into the Bio-Cup 2020, a challenge to build something with a “Canine” theme. The Big Bad Wolf is completely made out of Lego and is wearing a sleeping cap and blanket. The figure uses a lot of Bionicle pieces mixed with standard Lego. The end result is surprisingly clean, and looks natural. A few interesting details include the old style Lego Minifigure cape used for a tongue, the Minifigure arms hiding in the ears, and the blades being used for the tail. An overall great detail is the use of the lighter grey color on the chest and jaw.
There is going to be a new Lego Minecraft wave of sets released. The summer 2015 sets will arrive in August (although you will probably see them pop up a week or two early). It looks like there will be 2 smallish sets, and 2 large sets. It is interesting that there are no small impulse buy sets. The Lego Minecraft line is not the most affordable, and this release continues that trend. Two of these new sets will see the first Minifigures of Alex. The female counterpart to Steve. Maybe someday she will be able to sell a set all my herself. The new Snow Golem looks extremely goofy, and it’s good to see the famous Minecraft Wolf represented. The big mystery (at least for me) is the 154 graffitied all over the Nether set. If you know what it means, let me know in the comments.
The Dungeon (21119) is the smallest set and comes with Steve and 2 Zombies.
The Snow Hideout (21120) is a medium sized modular set with Steve, a Creeper and the all new Snow Golem.
The Desert Outpost (21121) is a large modular set, with Alex, Steve, a Wolf, and 2 Skeletons.
Finally, the big set this summer is The Nether Fortress. Featuring Alex, Steve, a Zombie Pigman, a Ghast, and Blaze.
Be on the lookout in August for these new Lego Minecraft sets.
