The Vaults were never meant to save anyone. – A Lego Fallout Vault

Matt De Lanoy's Lego Fallout Vault
I’ve been playing a lot of the Fallout Shelter video game, or I should say struggling to survive the post-apocalyptic future. With news of the Fallout 4 coming soon there is a surge of interest in related stuff. Even Lego MOCs are being revealed everyday. Matt De Lanoy has created his own scene, titled “The Vaults were never meant to save anyone.” This MOC is part of the Iron Builder challenge, this time it was Metallic Silver Barbell. Can you find them?

The TwinBee, A Lego Mech Homage

rongYIREN's TwinBee Lego Mech

This stout Lego Mech is called the TwinBee, and is the creation of rongYIREN. The TwinBee is an homage or recreation of the ship from the NES/SNES video game. A series that started way back in 1985 in Japan, and seems to still be going with an iOS / Android release in 2013 titled Line GoGo! TwinBee. This homage manages to keep the arms, which are essential for dropping bombs. The Lego version has some awesome jets, large enough to outrun anything else. It even manages to stand out as something unique in The Lego Mech or Robot genre: http://legogenre.com/category/robots-2/

When You’re Late For The Job

PSquiddy's Late For The Job Lego MOC

“Oh no, it seems like Mr. Craig’s Alarm Unit malfunctioned! He better hurry his way to work or a point might be added to his L4TE card!”

People do crazy things when they are late for work. Lego people are no different. Check out this Lego MOC by P Squiddy titled Late for the job! It is a perfect example of taking a solid MOC and creating a story around it. This isn’t just a flying car in the near/distant future, but a story being told about that future. The whole thing is achieved with minimal details, a few reactionary Minifigures is all it takes.

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.
