Creepy crawly or fuzzy & fluffly (yes, that’s possible in LEGO), we love our LEGO animals. Check them out here, and fall in love yourself.

This bird shoe fits the bill

This angry-looking bird isn’t the star of a mobile game or summer movie, but is actually an ingenious interpretation of one of nature’s bigger-billed birds, the African-native shoebill. The real bird stands a remarkable 4 feet tall with an enormous bill for catching fish. Builder Moko has done a great job using the shin guards from the large General Grievous figure to portray the bill, but my favorite part is the expressive eyes. Be sure to check out Moko’s blog for a cool breakdown of the construction techniques employed.

Giant problems for LEGO knights

There’s always a pesky ogre, dragon or giant hanging around waiting for intrepid knights to ply their trade. In this magical scene by Paddy Bricksplitter, it’s not going so well for the armor-clad heroes though as they fight to defend a suddenly very short castle against an enormous giant. Even the wizard for extra firepower may not be enough.

Big Trouble

The sea serpent leaves a mighty wake

Timothy Jones says that he hasn’t previously built water effects or large organic creatures from LEGO, but his first attempt is rather impressive. A monstrous creature rises from the sea right next to a castle on a rock, lifting a tiny boat in its enormous maw. I don’t have very much confidence that the ballistas aimed at the big blue beast will have much effect…

Build your own miniature Songbird from BioShock Infinite

Following up a 1:1 scale Sky-Hook and an incredible minifig scale Songbird dioramaImagine Rigney is back with another build from the universe of BioShock Infinite. This time around it’s an itty bitty Songbird that you can build from a handful of pieces, and there’s full instructions to make one yourself.

Itty Bitty Songbird InstructionsBy the way, BioShock Infinite is a brilliant game and one of my all-time favourites. It’s relatively cheap now, so if you haven’t tried it yet, pick it up and give it a go.

The minions of Nurgle are here, and you can fight or join them

The Deathly Halliwell isn’t just bringing you great LEGO renditions of Warhammer 40K models, but also an invitation to join in on the fun — the builder is working with Conner Lill to build a Warhammer 40K layout for BrickWorld Chicago. If your 40K knowledge isn’t up to scrap, what you’re looking at here is a Great Unclean One (which looks like Scabeiathrax), Plague Drones, and a Herald of Nurgle.

Join and rot forever!

LEGO Godzilla has atomic halitosis

Beware! Jeff Cross‘ brick-built Godzilla is coming to stomp all over your hometown. The big beastie himself is well-executed, but it’s the pulse effect created by a simple stack of trans blue 2×2 round pieces which makes this model really stand out. I can hear the sound effects in my head!

Godzilla does not love you

Now I want to see the big guy duking it out with Mothra over a microscale Tokyo. Do it Jeff. Do it.

Spectacularly ferocious LEGO T-Rex Transformer will send you back to the Jurassic

I never did get around to seeing the insane spectacle that was Transformers: Age of Extinction, but I have to admit the character designs were awesome. Nicola Stocchi has brought the most iconic of those characters to the brick with this terrifyingly incredible version of the T-Rex Grimlock. It’s a rendered work, but the complex construction of this mechanical beast is no less impressive for it.

No one warned me that battle dragons can be so cute!

Girls’ themes like Friends and Elves have granted us a huge variety of new pieces, from minifig accessories to some lovely dragon heads and wings. So as soon as the 2016 Elves sets were revealed in January, it was just the matter of time before the fan community found better applications for all those new parts. LEGO 7 makes a perfect upgrade of the fire dragon from Elves set 41175.

Dragon Warrior-1

I’m quite confused, as all the armour parts go amazingly well with each other and the whole figure is truly impressive, but I still can’t take my eyes away from the dragon’s face. Just look at those charming eyes and cute teeth! And who could know that the new wings would have such an astonishing color gradient. Simply perfect!

What the hell are you?

I always felt distant to series such as Bionicle and Hero Factory as they didn’t really demonstrate an actual LEGO experience for me. Same goes for the recent Buildable Figure or “constraction” series. Nevertheless, Jonas skillfully manages to show us how useful these specific parts can be for certain occasions. The armor on iconic film character Predator definetely requires a different touch and many Hero Factory parts came to the aid. Such perfect presentation in this small scale would be impossible otherwise.

Predator

The Yautja hunter is easily recognizable with his dreadlock hair, plasma caster, wrist blades, body mesh, and bone necklace, all enhanced by a strong and ready-to-fight stance. But I wish Jonas could complete the scene with an Alien to relieve my stress — it feels like a prey without the presence of an opposing monster!

He has awoken

It seems serendipity has struck again. As I started reading H.P. Lovecraft: the Collected FictionLeonid An comes up with this awesome microscale build titled “The servant of Cthulhu”.

The servant of Cthulhu

To fully appreciated the great scale in this scene, check out this intimidating shot which also shows of the build of that little ship, which cleverly uses short minifig capes for sails.
