Build your very own Tyrannosaurus Rex BrickHeadz [Instructions]

When the Owen and Blue BrickHeadz set first came out it was one of the first animal BrickHeadz in the series, after the Valentine’s Day bee and the Easter Bunny, which were really more like people in animal costumes. When I finished building the set, I immediately wanted to build a T-Rex to go with it. After several attempts, I finally came up with something I was happy with, and with a little encouragement from the TBB team, I am excited to share instructions so you can build one of your own.

Build your very own BrickHeadz style T-Rex

The colors I used were based on my personal collection, and so I encourage you to choose any colors you want, to make your T-Rex unique.

USCSS Nostromo and ore refinery from Alien built from 3500 LEGO pieces

While most LEGO sci-fi builders inspired by the Alien franchise tend to build the military hardware from James Cameron’s Aliens, some builders go for the industrial aesthetic of Ridley Scott’s original movie. TBB’s own Daniel Fortine has not only built the Weyland-Yutani corporation’s cargo ship Nostromo, he’s built the massive ore refinery that Ripley and her crew are hauling when they make an ill-fated stopover on LV-426.

We asked Daniel to share his huge model with our readers first, along with a bit more info you won’t find anywhere else.
