Iain “Ochre Jelly” Heath built these figures because he felt (along with many others) that the One Ring from the official LEGO sets was ridiculously out-of-scale with the mini-figs. Honestly, I don’t care what his reasons were, I’m just really glad that he built these fantastic figs and that I’ve already purchased tickets for my favourite seats at the Friday premier here.

Staff member Allen “Tohst” Carley participated in his train club’s (Nothern Illinois LEGO Train Club annual holiday show at Cantigny Park. One new MOC he built and displayed was the above Star Wars Angry Birds-inspired TIE Piggy or what I like to call a Sty Fighter. I doubt this will be the only MOC based off the Lucas/Rovio collaboration that we’ll see.
Check out this motorized Tumbler built by Paweł “Sariel” Kmiec. It’s got tons of features including headlights, independent front suspension, simulated flame exhaust, and remote firing mechanism that fires two Technic missiles. If only LEGO sold a kit like that, I bet it would sell like gangbusters.
This stubby little Batman by bruceywan is a spot on likeness of the Funko POP! Heroes version that he built for his son. I’m a fan of the vinyl toys and have wanted to buy a few of these for some time, but again, I don’t need to start another collection. Thankfully once again, a builder shows me I could just be building my own.
Our old friend LegoManiac is back playing in the super hero sandbox and has reproduced this game in LEGO form for his daughter. I’ve never seen this game before, but it looks like my son would also love it so I may have to reproduce his reproduction so we can have a go at it ourselves. Being a big fan of the LEGO board games, I love seeing people make their own or even recreate existing ones out of brick. You can check out more pics of the game on LegoManiac’s family blog here.
This does give me another idea too, guess I’ll add it to the pile.
When Si-MOCs‘ posted this diorama in the MOC showcase this morning I found it quite amusing, because my son just learned this song on the school bus yesterday and has been singing it ever since. It will be on display in December at the Toronto LEGO Store in Fairview, so if you’re in that neck of the woods be sure to check it out.
Chris (Powerpig) McVeigh has capped off his Build-it-Yourself projects for the year with a little taste of Star Wars. He scaled this TIE Fighter to last year’s Millennium Falcon which as he says, allows you to stage an epic space chase right across your tree! PEW PEW!
Head on over to chrismcveigh.com/ and find out how to build it in both Classic White and Empire Grey, then get trimming. I know some of you already have your tree up…
I’m really starting to like these bust statuettes. I’ve always avoided buying them by using the excuse that they looked stupid without any arms, but that’s just a lie I’ve told myself to prevent the possibility of starting yet another collection. Fredoichi‘s use of stickers in this build is quite impressive and it took me a minute or two to really see what he’d done. I hope to see more of these builds in the future and this is one more reason I can’t wait until those new Legends of Chima wing pieces are in circulation.
