I haven’t actually played the popular game Among Us, but the little people in colorful spacesuits featured in the game sure are iconic. While those guys may not be the inspiration behind this lovely Astro-bunny LEGO build by Joffre Zheng, it certainly looks like a cute mashup to my little eye.
This silly rabbit’s carrot-colored spacesuit is crafted out of orange bricks, slopes, tiles, cones, and cylinder pieces in various sizes. A trans-clear hinged half dome serves as the visor of the helmet, which protects the furry little critter from the space elements. Small light grey pieces such as cheese slopes, round-bottomed 2x2s, tiles, and bricks make up the face, whose eyes are rendered with the signature 1×1 round tiles featured in BrickHeadz sets. This bunny sure is ready for Easter and beyond!
For the past several years around this time, LEGO has offered an Easter-themed Gift with Purchase. This year proves no different. Well, maybe a little different. It is a new set, after all. This year’s perk is 40449 Easter Bunny’s Carrot House, a 231-piece set featuring a cute little bunny and a single-room carrot-based home. It will be available with purchases over $60 from March 15th until April 5th, or while a supplies last. Is it worth potentially filling your cart with a few extra items to hit the required total? Let’s take a look and see!
The LEGO Group provided The Brothers Brick with an early copy of this set for review. Providing TBB with products for review guarantees neither coverage nor positive reviews.
Sometimes the simplest builds are the best. Jonas Kramm is a talented and versatile LEGO artist who consistently delivers excellent creations, big and small. He is currently doing a vignette series, and this one is my recent favorite. There are so many cute details packed into a little space. The rabbit hutch, birdhouse, gnome, and picket fence are all so cleverly crafted. In particular, using skis for fence boards is a brilliant idea. Alongside the satisfyingly white-trimmed shed, it all fits perfectly.
While you’re here, you can check out all of Jonas’ latest builds in our archives. (Including the first three vignettes in this series.)
LEGO is also offering two seasonal gifts-with-purchase, an exclusive Easter Egg with purchases more than US $50, and a smaller yellow Easter Bunny polybag with purchases more than US $30. Both gifts-with-purchase will be available through April 14th while supplies last, and yes, you can get both on a single order.
Whether you’re religious or not, Easter is a great time to recognize the breath of fresh air that is springtime. The flowers are blooming and baby animals are coming into the world. Rabbits, well known for their prolific ability to procreate, are the adorable mascots of the season. The candy-filled eggs (also a symbol of fertility) are a pretty cool bonus too. Although it doesn’t come with eggs, Felix Jaensch’s latest build sits amongst the best LEGO bunnies around. Most are sitting or standing, but laying down makes this one catch your eye. Realistic as always, it is more proof that he certainly has a keen eye for organic shapes!
If you can’t get enough builds for the occasion, this cartoon-ish bunny is full of character!
I’m not entirely sure how Easter is celebrated in other countries, but in the US it means the Easter Bunny is coming. This mysterious character, who secretly delivers and hides colorful eggs filled with candy, is the mascot of springtime. And while Easter is still a serious religious holiday for many people, it’s an excellent excuse to play and celebrate. Koen Zwanenburg’s rabbit (looking very much like the Nesquik bunny) is a fun tribute to the season! My favorite parts are the croissant eyebrows and cloud plate cheeks!
Koen says the eggs in the wheelbarrow are actually “easter eggs” of LEGO themes. Can you guess what they are?
Just in time for Easter, our friend Jason Allemann and his partner Krystal (JK Brickworks) have brought us another marvelous, moving creation! Festive candy seems to be a common theme in their builds lately. This one is an adorable bunny with a unique talent of pooping out chocolate eggs! They have used the new Boost robotics system again, and the design is incredibly simple. It’s so simple that young people could probably build something similar. That’s not to say it isn’t uniquely cute and clever all wrapped into one perfect, pooping package!
