Serbian builder Djordje, who is at his best when creating large action figures, surprises us with this tiny sparrow. There’s nothing complicated in its structure, yet it looks so lively it could take flight the moment its creator was taking the picture. My favourite touch is the sparrow’s legs; I guess from now on I won’t be able to look at droid arms without thinking about birds…
While many regard the Chupacabra as an urban myth, we now know differently. Mr. Cab has built/obtained physical proof that the creature is real! Okay, maybe the existence of the legendary Goat-Sucker hasn’t been scientifically proven, but this build is legendary in it’s own right.
I love the eager stance of the creature. It looks like it’s ready to lunge right into a herd of defenseless goats. But the syringe and glove really give this build a hint of context while still leaving you with questions. Is the Chupacabra alive or dead? Are they injecting it or taking a sample? The world demands answers!
It looks like Paul Reiser (aka Carter Burke from Aliens) has been releasing facehuggers into the homes of innocent people again! No, this grainy photo isn’t a still from the next film in the Alien franchise, but it could be! Seriously, mordatre‘s LEGO facehugger is terrifyingly good. The sleek Bionicle pieces combine perfectly to create a realistic and dynamic alien exoskeleton. I love the posable tail and legs. But if this thing could move on its own, I don’t think I’d ever be able to sleep again.
Here’s a better (?) look at the nasty creature.
This intriguing looking black dragon by Al Fi has clearly been enjoying a few too many dragon snacks, as that oversized paunch reveals. The builder has mainly used Bionicle parts for this unusual creation, but some LEGO System and Technic elements are present too. I say ‘unusual’ as it’s not often you see a couple of tires used to form the central stomach area of a creature in this manner!
It’s worth having a look at the rear side of this dragon to see some more lovely shaping and spiky details. The purple and pearl grey highlights are just enough to break up the black without making this dragon look too much like a LEGO Friends creation!
Whether from the recent Pokémon Go fad, or from the past twenty years of catching them all in other Pokémon adventures, this LEGO Oddish built by Tyler Halliwell is instantly recognizable. I love the way Tyler built the adorable little face of this grass/poison type Pokémon. How could one possibly throw Pokéball after Pokéball directly at a Pokémon this happy?
After bringing us an almost perfect rendition of Samus Aran, Finnish builder Eero Okkonen returns with a beast that looks like a dragon, but isn’t. Called “Guechex” this monster makes good use of printed Bionicle armour pieces as well as a solid red and black colour scheme to tell us that this is a fiery being. Check out the builder’s personal blog for additional pictures.
Karf Oolhu proves once again he’s the master of combining random parts to create models that manage to be somehow both funny and sinister. This peculiar skeletal figure lurches from the darkness, tentacles and wings poking out of its robe, an obsidian dagger strapped at its waist. Karf says we need to submit to it. Personally I’m going to run away instead.
We’ve seen many brick-built LEGO Godzillas over the years, but this one by SPARKART! may be the smallest. Despite its size, it still manages to convey the feeling of a towering creature of destruction. All it needs now is a microscale city to destroy.
One final point to note here is that the colour composition of this picture makes the grey bricks look almost blue. For a second I thought we might be getting the ubiquitous Mixel joints in some new colours, but sadly my hopes were to be dashed!
With summer over, it’s time to embrace the change of seasons and let Halloween in. Chubbybots has clearly done so with this horribly creepy killer LEGO carrot who wishes to come after us all.
I love the shaping and expression. This thing has so much character. I mean, yes, it looks like it’s going to take revenge for not eating (or eating too many!) vegetables, but that’s okay.
I love seafood, and crab in particular. Here in the Pacific Northwest, one of the best ways to have it is to get fresh dungeness crab and crack it yourself, so this typhoon shelter crab dish by LEGO 7, made with a fresh whole crab, feels right at home and makes me very hungry. The builder even includes some tools of the trade, useful for scavenging every last bit of tasty meat from the shell.
It’s one thing to say that a plague of locusts, cicadas, or grasshoppers has gone after your crops. It’s another thing entirely when they destroy the entire farm. sanellukovic has posted what can only be a thing of nightmares with elephant-sized grasshoppers destroying the remains of what I imagine was once a farm, full of life. Not so much anymore.
As fantastical as many of the LEGO Castle creations we feature here on The Brothers Brick are, it’s actually not very often that we see a fantastical creature wreaking havoc among the people and structures that comprise most of these medieval scenes. Wookieewarrior remedies that situation with a monstrous worm emerging from the earth to rip through a round tower. The worm itself has lots of great details in black, but the yellow minifig hands stand out (literally) as wonderful spines. The tower includes lovely details as well, including reused LEGO sprues from three-leaved plants as vines. Potted flowers add a spot of color against the gray tower, and the rounded landscaping of the base is excellent as well.
Be sure to click through to the photo and zoom in for more details, including the priceless expression on the hapless farmer’s face.
