There is a neat LEGO part that comes with the Friends Baking Competition set as well as a couple of others. It’s the 2×2 cake topper. Most of us see that part and may likely use it for what it’s intended for; a cake bit. But Seung Hun Park saw it as something a bit more unsettling. He artfully constructed a Candle Ghost using the cake topper as melted wax. It’s as is Lumière from Beauty and the Beast had morphed into something from Silent Hill. The single eye on each candle and the tongues made from minifig flippers make for a nice, creepy touch.
If you find yourself in a magical land, watch where you step. Amongst the alluring, translucent blue flowers hides a curious creature. Exceptional LEGO builder, Patrick Biggs brings this little character to life in a captivating way. An expressive face paired with a dynamic pose and uniquely contrasted foliage demand a second look. You can build a pretty flower or a cute dragon, but telling a story with the two is what makes this build interesting. I’m particularly fond of the parts usage in the head shaping of the dragon, as well as the Bionicle head elements used for the petals.
While you’re here, you can check out a few of Patrick’s other builds, as well as more dragons!
LEGO seems to be slowing its BrickHeadz release cycle, but it’s not done creating the cute brick-built characters just yet. LEGO has just published images of the newest set in the line, 40351 Ghost. Presumably a Halloween seasonal item following in the vein of similar sets for the past several years, we expect the Ghost to cost $10 USD and be released sometime in the next month or two. The Ghost will be BrickHeadz number 83, and it includes 136 pieces.

The animated series Star Wars: Rebels introduced, in my opinion, one of the most unique new ship designs since the Millenium Falcon. Hera Syndulla’s Ghost is a cargo ship packing enough firepower to take on a squadron of TIE fighters. The Ghost is also one of the more colorful ships in the Star Wars universe, with its teal, orange, and yellow highlights. This color scheme is reflected well in this speeder bike by SweStar. I love the black mechanical details along the bottom, including a few gold rings from the Lord of the Rings theme. And props for the use of official stickers from the LEGO set.
If this speeder bike looks familiar, the builder was inspired by another bike recently featured on TBB, the B9-Sokudo by Legofin.
