Agra Sunstriker, Beat Wizard

Back at it again with another fantastic figure, Builder Eero Okkonen makes use of some interesting parts from Monkie Kid’s new Galactic Explorer. After watching the Moon Knight finale, this seems like an ancient Egyptian hero in the modern era. Just imagine him strutting up to a bad guy, dropping that boom box, hitting play, and kicking butt in step with the power of the gods.

Check out this colourful cyber samurai

This is one to watch out for on the battlefield! Eero Okkonen has taken inspiration from the Monkie Kid sets with the vibrant colours featured in this build. Yellow curved tubes (AKA macaroni) form part of the character’s wide helmet with red claws portraying horns. The fingers are actually skeleton arms and the windscreens in dark turquoise are perfect for creating the samurai’s armour skirting. The futuristic design is completed by the use of trans red at the knees, arm shields and in the sword. It’s an eye-catching model where you can tell Eero has taken time to analyse parts from the Monkie Kid theme in order to apply the pieces in inventive ways.

LEGO Monkie Kid 80033: Evil Macaque Mech is not monkeying around

Late in the first season of the Monkie Kid animated series we were finally introduced to the Evil Macaque, who first appeared in the Legendary Flower Fruit Mountain set from earlier this year. While other villains like the Demon Bull King and the Bone Demon have received mecha sets in previous waves, Evil Macaque was left out, until now. He has finally reached proper villain status with an overpowered mech of his own. LEGO Monkie Kid 80033: Evil Macaque Mech includes 893 pieces and is available now, for US $79.99 | CAN $109.99 | UK £54.99

You can take the leftovers home in a BYGGLEK box

Can you spot the LEGO IKEA BYGGLEK box in this creation by lego_nuts? Neither could I until I watched their video on youtube. The storage box is used as the base of this wonderful creation. All lego-nuts had to do was create four walls to hide the box properly. My mind is completely blown. This technique could be used to create mountains without them getting too heavy and parts-consuming. I didn’t know I needed the storage containers, but now I am sure that I do.

I love to see people make creations inspired by Chinese Architecture using LEGO Monkie Kid aesthetics. For one of the buildings in the background curved train rail is used for the rooftop. Which is brilliant if you ask me. The Monkie Kid crew is having Chinese hot pot during their Reunion Dinner to celebrate the Lunar New Year and I would just love to join them in this lovely setting.

LEGO Monkie Kid 80036: The City of Lanterns – The Monkie Kid city we’ve been waiting for [Review]

Ever since the Monkie Kid theme first launched, there have been many amazing sets, featuring huge mechs and mech-like figures, bright and colorful fully over-the-top vehicles and accessories, and a whole host of villains and minions. But aside from a few small buildings, and a headquarters on a cargo boat, there has not been much in the way of shops or restaurants to populate the world the characters live in. All that is about to change with LEGO 80036: The City of Lanterns. A stacked city scene consisting of eight individual buildings attached to a two-level structure complete with an elevated train. I am super excited about this set, and can’t wait to break it all down for you.

The City of Lanterns comes with 2,197 pieces and will be available on January 1st, for US $149.99 | CAN $179.99 | UK £114.99
