Brickshelf user m-and-m did a great job of building these classic Disney chipmunks and capturing their characteristic expressions. The stump display stand is a great addition for presentation, and the acorn is a brilliant finishing touch.
I spotted this a week ago, and failed to get a post published until now. I still think this creation by Nick V (brickthing) is worth sharing, though. I’ve been seeing a lot of Disney/Star Wars mashups, since the announcement that Disney was acquiring Lucasfilm, but this is the first I’ve seen in LEGO. Darth Vader meets Mickey, I love it!
Presenting Cruella de Vil’s sweet ride from the Disney film 101 Dalmations, as interpreted by Cole Edmonson. The car used in the 1996 live-action version was based on the Panther De Ville, produced from 1974-85 by British car company Panther Westwinds. Cole includes a fairly accurate Cruella minifig to go with it; the only thing missing is her ever present cigarette.
In case you missed it, Disney will be releasing a new movie starring Johnny Depp by Gore Verbinski (who directed the first three Pirates of the Caribbean movies and the excellent Rango) next July based on the classic Western Lone Ranger. After LEGO Prince of Persia and Pirates of the Caribbean, it should come as no surprise that LEGO will be releasing a line of sets, due out in April.
Update: LEGO released their Lone Ranger site too early and got in trouble with Disney. Since this is just a silly mistake, we’re complying with their request to remove the image.
No official word on the sets, but rumors are rampant on the web, so I’m sure you’ll be able to find the list of sets (the titles of which are full of movie spoilers) if you really want to.
Taylor (Stormbringer) has made an excellent rendition of Maleficent the dragon from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. The dragon design is really quite stunning, and the fantastic landscaping is just icing on the cake!
He has posted this as a project on Cuusoo as well.
Be sure to check out the rest of Taylor’s dragons because he has some doozies!! One of which had been previously blogged.
Jordan Schwartz had also done this same scene from the movie a few years back…very neat to see the different takes on the same subject!
Whew…that was busy day :)
I admit to being a sucker for Disney; I was 23 when I made my first trip. There’s a certain joy in seeing Mainstreet USA for the first time.
So with that in mind, this creation by Fat Tony brings me to that point, of being at Disney for the first time, and the sheer joy of riding the rides and seeing that magic.
More shots on this glorious creation, check out the flickr gallery!
Curtydc has built a nifty version of Don Karnage’s TriWing Terror from TaleSpin. It is fun-looking plane and has a rather SkyFi feel to it. I also hear that it is quite swooshable.
Matt Armstrong (monsterbrick) has created the full complement of Disney princesses with this series of seven figs.
Matt calls this scale “bricklings,” but to me they’re like micro Miniland people. Either way, they’re adorable.
Well, I’m way late on this one. I meant to post it here right away, but forgot. Absolutely no excuse for that. But better late than never.
Stitch is one of my all-time favorite Disney characters and Jordan’s sculpture is most excellent. From the stance of the character to the look on his face, from the use of the stickers on the ears (yes, they are official LEGO) to the use of black teeth for fingers, everything about this build meshes very well.

As much as we try not to populate the blog with every creation by a single builder, it’s difficult when that builder keeps making blogworthy MOCs from different themes each time. Tyler Clites (Legohaulic) recently ventured into the world of Disney with his Cruella DeVille’s Rolls Royce. As usual, Tyler’s minifigs are also innovative; I never made the connection that Two-Face’s hair also doubles for the hairpiece of this classic Disney villain.
For the record, I purposely refrained from blogging Tyler’s Organibot for the above reason. You should still check it out if you haven’t seen it.
