The Star Wars franchise knows how to provide cannon fodder for the good guys. Tie fighters and Stromtroopers from the original trilogy and to a degree so far the sequel trilogy. The prequels gave us battle droids, who also attempted to provide a bit of humor. Hachiroku24 has built excellent renditions of the standard battle droid. Best of all video instructions are provided on YouTube! The droid uses mostly common pieces, and has a ton of articulation. My favorite part is the minifig scale battle droid arm as a neck.
If I didn’t have a fear of swimming (or heights), a ride on Ted Ande’s futuristic skiff Rhapsody sounds just peachy. I always enjoy seeing builders try to incorporate Technic pieces into their MOCS, and it’s especially well done in this one. I also dig the floorboard texturing.
I’m only a few episodes into Netflix’s new animated anthology series Love, Death & Robots, but the Three Robots short is definitely an early standout for me. Lu Sim made a MOC of one of the titular robots, who comes from a long line of baby monitors. He also created some fun alternate expressions for the lil’ guy. I wanna animate him!
One of the many iconic enemies from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time were the Poe Spirits. Julius von Bronk has captured their devious aura in bricks, complete with lantern and spectral smoke trail. I especially love the detailing on the tattered hood. Now I want to dust off my N64 and explore Hyrule!
This fantasy scene by Jonas Wide is so well made and designed that I mistook it for a recreation of an actual European town at first (until I saw the Orc with a cane). So many cool details, like the brickwork on the houses, the big pots in the alleyway, the market, and the excellent usage of micro scale lights to create a mood.
You don’t need a lot of bricks to make a creative MOC. This build by Tom Gerardin depicting an alien abduction in some metropolitan city is a perfect example. Love the little tank, but the highlight is the usage of the new Giraffe Guy collectible minifig’s snout as an alien head. Brilliant!
