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.”

Get your mind back… on track, is a Lego MOC with an unsolvable 15 tile puzzle. This little guy is so close and yet so far from the solution.

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.
This Lego mech was inspired by the gas masks, and would operated in toxic environments. The STILTwalker is the creation of tanks, and you can find more information over on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/54660083@N07/sets/72157669076924714
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.

The next big comic book movie is out now. This one seems to be very decisive. But, one thing is for sure. Suicide Squad has a very dedicated fan base, creating lots of amazing things in support for the film. MGF Customs has finished creating a whole line of custom Lego Suicide Squad Minifigures. There is Col. Rick Flag, Katana, Captain Boomerang, Joker, Harley Quinn, Deadshot, El Diablo, and Killer Croc. These are some of the most details customs, especially the scales on Killer Croc and all the tattoos on Joker/Harley.
These custom Minifigs have a great showcase available to watch. Over 20 minutes of video covering the designs and all the details for each character.

“Kill him. Kill him now.” A famous line from one of the most memorable scenes from Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. Cecilia Fritzvold has faithfully recreated this moment in Lego. There are a lot of great details here, but the most impressive is the background. Full of tiny spaceships battling it out. The forced perspective works extremely well.
“I initially tried to include a larger area of the room in my build, as I wanted to include at least the bottom part of the stairs they walk down, and leave some more space for Obi-Wan, but I had to cut it down a bit as I couldn’t fit it all on 32×32. It was also very important to me from the start to be able to show the battle going on outside with the use of some micro spaceships, so I had to leave some room for those behind the windows.”

Forrest Whaley, Sean Willets, Christopher Gearhart are pretty excited for the new Suicide Squad film. They teamed up to recreate the trailer with Lego. It features custom Minifigures, which look great. Almost everything here is built from official Lego pieces. Even the titles have been recreated with digital Lego pieces. Everything comes together into an exciting 42 second trailer. It might even be better than the film.
