Sail The Lego Seas In The Little Victory Ship

Nick Barrett's Lego Ship Little Victory Sails

Most Lego ships are either huge or very tiny. It is rare to see something in between. This Lego MOC titled The Little Victory is a perfect example of doing something creative in Lego. This ship is the creation of Nick Barrett, who also created the massive HMS Victory (here). The HMS was Minifigure scale, which translated to a ship made out of thousands and thousands of Lego bricks. This mini version is a faithful recreation. It features three gun decks, three masts, brick built sails, and custom rigging.  This ship is impressive, and only little in scale.

New Horizons Photos Reveal Pluto Is Made Of Lego

Iain Heath's Lego New Horizons Pluto

The NASA space probe is New Horizons is currently taking photos and scientific readings of the little non-planet Pluto. The New Horizons Space Probe launched in 2006 with a mission to document Pluto and the Kuiper Belt. The probe will get the closest to Pluto as it can on July 14th 2015. Where it might be revealed that Pluto is made up of Lego, or maybe not. Iain Heath has created a New Horizons MOC as excitement peaks for this historical mission. This version of the space probe almost looks like an official Lego Ideas project. Im sure it would have a good chance at making it through the process too. Lego seems to have a soft spot for Space stuff.

This Lego Transformers Optimus Prime Is More Than Meets The Eye

Ralph S's Lego Transformers Optimus Prime Truck

Lego and Transformers seems like a pretty good match. The problem is that the recent movies and the cartoons take extreme liberties in the design. Usually there is no way these robots could fit into a tiny car. Since a computer can cheat and hide away a lot of the conflicting elements, the films get away with this. When you are working in Lego these conflicts need to be carefully worked out. Ralph S has created an extremely detailed Lego Optimus Prime. What separates this from all the other Lego Transformers MOCs is that this one can actually transform. The truck from is a good looking Lego MOC, even if you didn’t know what was hiding inside. Then with some careful transforming, Optimus Prime, stands tall. At 45-50cm in height, this makes the models scale at 1/22. Even better Optimus can stand on his own (although don’t sneeze around him, and don’t tell the Decepticons).

“I think it’s a great set for TBBT fans that are not already LEGO fans because even I, who hasn’t played with LEGO for 10 years, wanted to build it just so I could recreate the set.…”
