Minifigures Need To Eat Too, Part 2 – Lego Taco Bell And KFC!

Eric Badis Lego Taco Bell

Lego Minifigures are lining up to eat a Cool Ranch® Doritos® Locos Tacos or a KFC Famous Bowl®. They can even wash it down with an ice cold Pepsi, Yum (Brands)! These two Lego MOC fast food buildings are the creation of Eric Badis, who is putting together a nice collection of Lego fast food joints. The Lego Taco Bell features the standard beige and purple design you will find in almost any city. The sign/logo and the wallpaper pattern are all custom printouts applied to the Lego building. The end result is amazingly lifelike. Then their is the Lego KFC, which features a more exaggerated design. It is based on the red and white stripe motif that you find on their buckets. This tall two story building will fit in with the official modular buildings.

A She-Hulk and Iron Man Team Up

Ben Cossy Lego She-Hulk Iron Man Team

She-Hulk and Iron Man have teamed up to take down the famous Magneto. Amazingly the X-Men are no where to be found. The “She-Hulk and Iron Man Team Up” is an MOC created by Ben Cossy. The fight takes place in a downtown looking area. It looks to be about the same scale as the Lego Modular buildings. Then there is the road, which might have more pieces then the rest of the scene. The overall concept of this Marvel themed build is based on Superior Iron Man #1. In that comic they are fighting against the Teen Abomination. Here, they swapped in Magneto since an Abomination Minifigure was unavailable. A great decision, as it allows the addition of cars into the fight. Also if you look very carefully you might notice that the She-Hulk and Iron Man are unofficial Minifigures.

Welcome To The Lego City House Of Culture!

O0ger Lego House Of Culture 01

“This is a house where people meet and hang out, watch the latest indie band, record a demo, paint, or just grab a cup of coffee in the café.” — O0ger

This is the Lego House Of Culture, designed and build by O0ger. It is always an interesting challenge when you take one of those weird ugly Lego Pieces and use them in a new way. In this case, the gigantic wing that comes in sets like the Lego City Airport 60104. Two of these big wings are used to create the roof of the House of Culture. The large whole in the wing, where the rest of the plane goes has been transformed into a neat skylight. Some other details of note include the giant chess set on the patio, a nice looking bus shelter, and some neat benches built into the landscaping. The end result is one awesome architecture themed MOCs.

Hammerhead Garage – Lego Final Fantasy XV

Joseph Z Lego Final Fantasy XV

It looks like the heroes from Final Fantasy XV (Noctis, Gladiolus, Ignis, and Prompto) have stumbled into some sort of Lego MOC. Just another detour from the main quest. You wouldn’t want them to actually do what they are supposed to (which you don’t, the main quest is…). You could say the game has a few hubs in the open world portion. One of which is the Hammerhead Garage. Home of Cid and Cindy. For some reason they are more then happy to wash all of the dust and spiderwebs off the Lego Regalia. This Hammerhead Garage MOC is the creation of Joseph Z.

Minifigures Need To Eat Too. Lego Dunkin Donuts And Texas Road House.

Eric Badis Lego Dunkin Donuts Texas Road House

This Dunkin’ Donuts and Texas Road House are built in the Lego Modular scale. And, just like in real life these buildings will stick out. The bright fast food colors of this Lego Dunkin’ Donuts would wake up the most sleepy Minifig. These two buildings are relatively simple looking and are both based off the same template (just like their real life versions). Although they do hide a lot of interesting details. Check out the Lego windows being used as a modern overhang over at DD. While the Texas Road House has a cute little cactus out front. These SNOT style buildings look good and would be a perfect addition to any modern town set up. After all, your Lego Minifigures need to eat food too.

Chinese Architecture – Near Sanyuanqiao Station, Beijing

qian yj Lego Chinese Architecture Restaurant

Lego builder Qian Yj has specialized in building Chinese themed Lego MOCs. One of their latest models is this “Lego Chinese Wind Architecture – Kuang Dian.” It is an amazing study of Chinese Architecture. The facade near perfect. Check out the details such as the trim around the roof, the red lanterns, the various seating arrangements, and the custom signage.

This Lego Restaurant is not a small building, and the interior is fully built. It looks like there are private dinning rooms, booths, a kitchen, and more all squeezed in. Using the 2×4 flat plates for detailing on the walls is a great idea.

This Lego Restaurant is actually based on a real life location. The restaurant is located around the Sanyuanqiao Station in Beijing. If you compare it to the Lego version, you will that almost every detail is represented. The scale is a bit off, but that is typical of Lego projects.

Peter Parker’s Apartment – A Spider-Man Lego MOC

Ben Cossy Lego Spider-Man Peter Parker's Apartment Detail

Peter Parker is just your average teenage Minifigure. Based on his apartment you would never guess his secret. That he is Spider-Man. Ben Cossy has created Peter Parker’s Apartment in Lego. A place for his Spider-Man and Mary Jane Minifigures to hang out. This Lego Studio-Apartment is fully furnished. In the main room you will find a double bed, old tube-style TV, computer, mini-kitchen, and a sofa. Among all the little details you might spot a NES, or Iron Man’s Helmet. All of the little custom stickers up on the walls look great. Off to the side is Peter Parker’s Bathroom. A standard small bathroom, with tub, toliet, and sink. Too bad there isn’t enough room for a shower. Spider-Man must stink after a night out.

Lego City Undercover Coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4, XBox One, & Steam

Lego City Undercover Trailer Nintendo Switch

Lego City Undercover is one of the best Lego video games made. Too bad lot of people haven’t had the chance to play it seeing as it was an exclusive to the Nintendo WiiU. The good news is that TT Games has released some details about the upcoming rerelease. Lego City Undercover will feature improved graphics. It also sounds like the controls and UI will be modified to suit the new platforms. Speaking of which, the game will be released on the new Nintendo Switch, along with the Playstation 4, XBox One, and Steam. That pretty much covers everyone!

Oh yeah, the Switch version will be full of secret Nintendo cameos. I sure hope that means you can ride Yoshi.

Video Game Or Lego? – The Last Of Us Lego MOC

Tim Schwalfenberg The Last Of Us Lego

You can build anything out of Lego. Even huge dioramas based on zombie/apocalypse video games. Such as this MOC which is based on the The Last of Us. The game is easily one of the best of the last decade, and a sequel has recently been announced. The ruined buildings have been detailed down to the smallest piece. The whole creation is 3 1/2 feet wide, and 2 feet deep. It uses thousands and thousand of bricks. Interestingly enough, it sounds like one of the buildings here is made up of custom 3D printed bricks. Can you guess which one?

The buildings contain some incredible work creating the rundown walls of the buildings. A few of the techniques used can be seen over here. The Lego buildings even have plants and vines growing out of them. The whole overgrown feeling captures the game exactly. You can find some other details too: a ruined bus, a military vehicle, and even Minifigures of Ellie and Joel.

An interesting detail are the broken windows. Each building has a different way of creating these. There are stacked 1×2 clear bricks, overlapping multiple small Lego windows, unevenly stacked windows, and a combination of the other three.

The Last Of Us Lego Interiors.

“It was a challenge to create rundown interiors where furniture and other fixtures were still identifiable, but I think they turned out well.” — Tim Schwalfenberg

Each building contains fully customized and detailed interiors. Each floor is different which means there are a lot of hidden features in these buildings. A few of the scenes created contain ruined toilets, rundown kitchens, pillaged stores, and broken bars.

The only thing missing is a pack of Clickers, crazy Militias, or some Fireflies.

Buy Your Minifigures Some Clothes At This Lego Uniqlo Store

neruneruneranai lego uniqlo store

Is your Lego Store (3300003) looking a bit lonely on your shelf? This Lego Uniqlo store is the perfect companion. The building has been designed with modularity in mind. You could create a whole series of box stores, and recreate an outdoor mall.

This MOC is the creation of neruneruneranai, who worked hard to get a lot of the details correct. The brick built sign in front is an almost perfect recreation of the Uniqlo logo. If you look at the details in the interior of the building you will see haphazardly stack clothing, and a lot of bright colors. Just like a real Uniqlo store. This is the place to go if your Minifigures are looking for some new pants or shirts.
