Look out, the amphibious space invaders are coming! Far from piloting mysterious saucers, however, these toads have tech much more familiar, needing a massive rocket to break the planet’s gravity. As usual, the ever-prolific builder Karf Oohlu employs interesting elements at every turn. Two stand out among the lot, though, with minifigure hands deftly employed to create a stud-reversal beneath the cockpit, and light covers doing double duty as space helmets–an easy-to-miss detail of the landed astronauts.
Did you know that most frogs do have teeth? They are very tiny and not actually used for chewing. But this frog is on a whole different level. I’m pretty sure you don’t want to make him angry! Nobu_tary, a LEGO builder we’ve featured many times, is the witty creator behind this creature. Usually he makes LEGO food like a banana as well as posable figures, but this is a refreshing new addition to his collection!
The body-shaping here is really terrific, and the use of that head piece brings it to life. You might recognize the part from the retired LEGO Chima Speedorz set, 70103 Boulder Bowling. It’s one of those pieces that are difficult to find another use for, but he’s done it perfectly here! This is one frog I wouldn’t mind dissecting… and putting back together of course!
