OK, Jack – let’s get this baby off the ground

It was only a matter of time before the space baby from Series 24 of the Collectible Minifigure line cropped up in a LEGO creation. Albert Lee is first through the gate with this cute lunar outpost. It’s a classic example of classic space, but the slightly odd scale brings its own challenges for parts choice. What parts might have passed for tiny greebled details before now have to be used more judiciously. Ditto for the signature yellow canopies. The ones used here may have been too small for some minifigure scale ships, even the control tower viewport. But with the babies, they suddenly become huge windows into space. Fascinating! I’m sure this won’t be the last we see of these babies, and it’s certainly not the first time seeing their civilian counterparts either. Perhaps we should make baby-scale its own thing!

A cookie worth writing home about.

With housing prices on the rise, Albert Lee invites you to consider the many joys of affordable gingerbread living. Gingerbread offers a variety of benefits; multistory construction, sugar glass windows, and a yard made from icing to help conserve water. Of course, you’re going to be in trouble if it rains. But that’s a risk worth taking in this market.

A colorful mech to be proud of

Nothing says Pride like a rainbow mech? Sure, why not. Mechs come in all shapes and sizes, and colors too, as clearly proven by this colorful mech built by Albert Lee and ready to march in the local Pride parade. The mech is full of great details for such a small scale, with hydraulic-powered legs made with connected espresso handles, and bright pink toes using that great angled part used to form Doc Ock’s mechanical arms in the Marvel Daily Bugle set.

Just another shower Hutt scene...

I particularly enjoy a LEGO build that injects a certain degree of humour into itself, and this little scene from Albert Lee hits the nail on the head. The brick-built Hutt captures both the contours of the body and colour of the species. Some nice parts have been used to recreate the shower with the blue web piece from a recent Spider-Mech and the water-filled hose adding some subtle action to the build. Some nice detailing then complements this vignette.

Have you ever wondered how the Hutts kept so clean? Neither had I!
