It is that time of the year where all the ghosts and ghouls come out and play with Lego. These super cute Lego Halloween decorations are the creation of nobu_tary. These brick built figures are dressed up as a Werewolf and Witch. The details are all well considered. For instance the SNOT style building, which is a Halloween approved acronym. The end result are two very cartoonish Lego figures full of character.
Also included, are a handful of other Halloween builds. Two of the more adorable and simple ghosts are ready to scare any trick-or-treators. The sausage based mouth is ingenious. There is also a huge bat (giving off Batman vibes) and a light-up jack-o-lantern.

It does not matter if it is in Lego or in the real world, the blue screen of death is terrifying. Anyone who used a Windows computer in the 90s knows this all too well. This little creation is the work of LegoJalex. The Minifigure scale computer is perfect, and best of all pretty simple to build. It is easy to overlook the computer chair, but it too is great. Now if only the guy can get everything restarted, he can continue closing Real Player download windows.

Who you gonna call? …Ghostbusters!
The Thousand Sunny (サウザンドサニー号) is a pirate ship belonging to The Straw Hat Pirates. Appearing in the anime and manga titled One Piece. It features a green lawn planted on the deck, a lion for a figurehead (often mistaken for a sunflower or the sun), a slide, a swing, a library, and an observation tower. All of the details have been replicated here in this MOC created Alex Jones, titled Thousand Sunny. The super vibrant colors, gigantic cartoon style logo on the sails, and huge figurehead really make this design stand out from all other Lego Pirate Ships. If you look carefully you can spot a custom Lego Monkey D. Luffy (Straw Hat) standing on the deck.

The original Playstation 2 was a monster of a game system. It managed to be heavy, somewhat fragile, expensive accessories, and difficult to find (at least at launch). The good news is that now you can recreate this legendary system with only 6 Lego bricks, at a cost of around (60¢). Sure it cannot play Final Fantasy X, Metal Gear Solid 2, or Grand Theft Auto but it also doesn’t cost $299. Kelseybuildslego created this Lego Playstation 2 Microbuild with an almost perfect eye for minimalism. The double clip Lego piece will now forever be a PS2 controller in my mind. The single detail that makes this whole thing work is the two blue Lego wedges representing the vertical stand. Well done.

“Tony’s helmet had been malfunctioning lately so he brought it out to make some repairs.”
Small Lego vignettes are super popular right now. There is a certain charm about creating a tiny set for your favorite Minifigures. Vlad Hernandez took his recent Lego Iron Man themed StarkLab: Helmet Repair display to another level by adding multiple light sources. There are a total of 4 LEDs embedded in an 8×8 stud space. The most impressive is the customized Tony Stark Minifigure, where the LEDs help show off that embedded Arc Reactor. Iron Man’s helmet and 2 gizmos are also lit up. Now if only someone could take this level of care creating some sort of super Hall of Armor.

Lego has a few sets that will forever be remembered. Each of the Lego themes have had a few of such sets over the decades. For Lego Pirates the most famous set is the Black Seas Barracuda (6285) from 1989. There was even a rerelease in 2002 called Black Seas Barracuda (10040) which had a few different pieces, but ultimately looked the same. These two sets are 13 years apart. Applying this information to today, it would mean that 2015 is due for another release. Maybe a mini Barracuda could happen. This example has been created by Bangoo H. The Mini Black Seas Barracuda has perfectly built brick sails, two mini pirate flags, and even some basic rigging. Everything about the original is represented here, even anchor. Maybe someday we will see an official Lego Mini Barracuda… maybe.

The Power Loader from Aliens is one of those perfect designs for Lego. All sorts of attempts have been made, in all sorts of sizes. The newest, and maybe cutest is the Mini Power Loader, created by Grantmasters. The goal was to create a Power Loader that get close to the Minifigure scale. This is a great example of non-standard Lego techniques being used to create something awesome. Check out Ripley’s legs, they have been pulled off the standard Lego legs. This lets Ripley and the Power Loader pose in many more dynamic positions. Which will come in handy when fighting Alien Queens.

Are you waiting for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel to download? Excited to butt stomp the moon, and bound through low gravity? Ready to hear Handsome Jack’s side of the story? Then you should be just as excited about these Lego Claptrap units created by Jerac. These three robots showcase some extremely impressive Lego skills. Check out how those arms are created, with a combination of levers and technic pins. And, admire the subtle sloping geometry. It is a wonder that it is all held together. One thing is certain, these Claptraps are dangerously fragile (physically and mentally).
