Lego has created one of the most funny Minifigure heads in their new Lego Dimensions Adventure Time Level Pack. Finn the Human has a goofy smile, and on the back side a derpy smile. Reddit user ColmiYveul realized the potential that this piece had and combined it with other well known Lego Minifigures. As you can see the results are something to remember. Then they quickly put together a small series with Tolkien and Disney Minifigs.
If you want to make your own, the good news is that the Adventure Time Level Pack is new, and still in stock at most retailers. Who knew one piece could has so many uses.
The Humble Bundle website just revealed their newest Book Bundle: Lego by No Starch Press.

There are 16 titles; including the popular titles: Beautiful Lego, The Cult of Lego, The Lego Architect, and Steampunk Lego.
The popular video game Titanfall (and its sequel) is one of those perfect universes that can translate into Lego extremely well. The first-person shooter stars some amazing robots that just ooze style. Marius Herrmann has created a small series of Titanfall Lego MOC’s. The creator worked hard to get some of the details as accurate as possible. Focusing on proportions, and color. The collection of mechs include Ion, Northstar, Ronin, and Stryder. Stryder is the only one based off the first game, and is actually and update to an older Lego MOC (the legs got completely redesigned).
The British television show Red Dwarf has been floating through space for over 20 years. It is about time the crew get their own Lego Ideas set based on the cult comedy show. The Lego Red Dwarf set features an amalgamated interior of the ship, and references to a lot of classic episodes. The main design is based on Season X. It includes the famous bunk beds, posters, a sliding airlock, Holly Hop Drive, and Skutters. Also included in the Lego Ideas project is the Blue Midget, which is anything but small. There are six custom Minifigures, created by Minifigs.me, which includes: Dave Lister, Kryten, Arnold Rimmer, Daune Dibbley, CAT, and Ace Rimmer.
A neat thing you don’t always see is that this Lego Ideas project is listening to the comments and updating the design. The Blue Midget has had its front redesigned, a Talkie Toaster added, and improved Holly screens.
“Whether you’re a diehard fan of Red Dwarf, Adult, Child or just love Lego! There’s something here to enjoy for everyone.”
Have you ever seen a relatively accurate model of a frog built with Lego? How about a Mech Frog? This Lego MOC is stunning. A white frog that is unexpectedly articulated. This thing can open up into a full jumping pose. Plus the head can open up so Minifigures can perform the annual maintenance. Oil changes and such.
This Lego Mech Frog MOC is the creation of Mitsuru Nikaido, who you can find on Twitter:
“The Kanalia” is a sleek and open star fighter. Piloted by Himura Satoichi. This Lego MOC has one of the most interesting cockpits. This openness has been achieved by combining three separate canopies. The ship is outfitted with multiple guns, and looks like it could hold its own in a fight. With a striking yellow and grey color scheme. The Kanalia stands out. It is also great to see landing gear.
The STILTwalker is a yellow and black Lego MOC. This mech is outfitted with a duel cockpit design. It is held together with Technic Axles, which also allows the body to adjust height by sliding up and down. The walker is controlled with 3 main engines, and 2 smaller “movability” engines. It is outfitted with multiple guns, and even comes equipped with an anime style sword.
The Flight of the Conchords are a humorous folk band from New Zealand. They are most well known for their great HBO television show. It has been years since the show ended and the band has recently reunited for a tour. So it is no surprise to see a new Lego FOTC MOC.
There are a total of four vignettes in the series. The iconic bedroom, a tiny kitchen, a stage, and Murray’s office. Each one of these scenes is instantly recognizable and is great for displaying the Minifigures. Of which, we have four. There are the main characters Jemaine and Bret, the band manager Murray, and the crazy fan Mel. These are spot on, and no one is going to get these Minifigs mixed up.
