Builder h2brick has been going “bizonkers” with a series of LEGO Adventure Time creations on his Flickr page. And his recent rendition of Boom Boom Mountain is “tops blooby” in my book, for sure. For those not familiar with the series, this particular mountain is in quite a bit of distress, being forced to endlessly watch men roughhouse in a village down at its base. This has gone on for centuries, but hopefully Finn and Jake (also depicted here in micro-scale form) can help. It’ll take some doing, but maybe they can cease the avalanche of boulder-tears from this agonized alp.
From those that joined Finn and Jake for Adventure Time back in the day to those that are just discovering the magic memories of the distant lands of Ooo, the characters will always hold a special place in our hearts. Builder H.Y. Leung perfectly captured the look of the duo’s iconic companion, BMO. This little, imaginative robot blends contemplative, emotional moments with the reckless abandon of a child. This model captures BMO’s character design almost exactly, built at a scale that allows the proper proportions for practically every element.
When Adventure Time was announced for LEGO Dimensions, I was more excited by fan creations made using the official parts, than being able to play the game with these familiar characters.
As Jake the Dog is practically able to become any shape in the world, he seemed like an obvious target for some great builds. And Andrew Cookston has done just that with a little scene of Jake and Finn in a dungeon fighting off some skeletons, as Jake changes into several forms. It’s a simple idea, but it’s smart little builds like this that I love.
One thing bothers me about all of this though… The Jake minifigure from the 71246 Adventure Time Team Pack is orangey yellow, while the Jake-mobile in the 71245 Adventure Time Level Pack is bright yellow. Why the difference, LEGO?

A whole new wave of LEGO Dimensions expansion packs have been revealed, bringing several new licensed themes to the LEGO universe in Story, Level, and Fun packs. If you’ve always wanted a LEGO Mr. T, now you can make your dream a reality. And if you still haven’t delved into the fantastic world of LEGO Dimensions, now is a great time since many of the original wave of Dimensions packs are nearly 50 percent off.
Bricknave makes his first appearance on the Über-blog with his rendition of The Ice King from Adventure Time. The builder nails every detail with the possible exception of the Ice King’s strange fascination with polygamy, which would admittedly be difficult to accomplish without building a harem to go with him.
What time is it?
I feel mathematical when I look at this model of Finn and Jake from Adventure Time. The responsible party is ccy_8086, whose work has not been featured nearly enough on TBB.
With that in mind, enjoy another masterpiece by ccy_8086, the CMC015 power battle suit from Starcraft 2.
