Builder Eero Okkonen is back with a ravishingly lovely figure from Magic the Gathering. This is the Wanderer, who according to Eero is “a mysterious individual with a habit of planeswalking from world to world slaying monsters and enemies with her decently-sized sword.”
I’ve never played Xenoblade Chronicles 2, so I didn’t recognize this character at first, but a quick google search revealed just how faithful a representation of Poppi ⍺ by builder Bodhi Poharu this is. And while she may be frustratingly fragile, the effort to build and photograph her was totally worth it.
I continue to be fascinated with builder Moko’s ability to not only make sleek and shapely figures, but to make them so posable. This one doesn’t seem to be based on any particular character, not that I would have any idea who it is anyway, but at least I don’t have to try and learn a bunch of stuff to share with you that I will immediately forget.
Builder Kingmarshy is getting a little ahead of himself since it's still Year of the Dog, but this entry for the Bio-Cup contest looks like a winner to me! I'm normally not a Bionicle fan, but this gluttonous creature, Zhu Bajie the Pig, and the fancy spread he's enjoying has a great blend of system parts, really bringing him to life. And even though Kingmarshy spent quite a bit of time on this awesome creation, he was actually ready to build something else in a half an hour.
When people scoff at Bionicle and Hero Factory about not being "real LEGO" or too limiting, I like to point them to creations like this jaw dropping figure from Moko. While it may not be stacked, studded bricks, it's still LEGO, and it's still an amazing creative tool. This king of the Greek gods looks ready to dispense some thundery judgement.
Yes, technically she's a demon, but admit it, she's cute huh? Meet Malva, a mischievous little minx from builder lingonkart. A combination of clever joints, as well as ample use of both large and small ball joints makes this figure super posable and therefor super expressive. Click through for more pics.
