A Regal Lego Friends Princess Castle

Hrczs1's Lego Friends Princess Castle

All of the Lego Friends and Lego Disney Princess figures need a place to stay. Especially if they need to fend off a horde of baddies. This glimmering white castle is the creation of Hrczs1. It features a keep and two towers, making an amazingly compact castle. There is very little room to spare. While the overall design is compact it is tall. Creating a kind of forced perspective trick that creates the illusion of size. The design is highlighted with purple, pink, teal, and gold trim. The most charming detail is the balcony attached to the central keep/tower. It looks like something out of Sleeping Beauty. A nice detail is that Cinderella’s Carriage fits perfectly inside of the gate. See if you can spot some of the other hidden details.

The Lego Friends Stay Fit In This Exercise Room

drspock888's Lego Friends Exercise Room

Even the Lego Friends should spend some time in the gym. This Lego Exercise Room is the creation of dr_spock_888. It features a stationary bike, a variety of  weights, a hydration station, and boombox. Everything you need to get your heart rate up. This MOC is relatively simple, but it works well. Instantly recognizable. Keep it simple is what they say. There might even be more pieces in the flooring then everything else combined. Maybe. Who knew that Mia was such a body builder, even the little cat is amazed!

More Details About That Charming Lego Friends: Lovely Hotel

Lego Friends Lovely Hotel

The Lego Friends: Lovely Hotel is extremely charming and popular. This Lego MOC is amazingly difficult to find, but a few more photos of this modular hotel have surfaced. The Lovely Hotel made its first appearance at the Fujiyama Lego Camp ’12. This pink and purple Cafe Corner mod was displayed between the other town and train creations. This is a total conversion of the famous Cafe Corner (10182), replacing everything with Friends inspired details. This creation would fit in perfectly in any Heartlake City display, and would be at home in a Modular Building layout.

When entering the Hotels front entrance an Ice Cream parlor can be found on the first floor. Here the Lego Friends can chill out and watch the coming and goings of the crowded streets outside. The entrance into the building can be found on the right side of the building. The first two rooms occupy the second floor, accessible from the narrow staircase. Each room features a stylish bed, and vanity. On the top floor is the penthouse suite. This room is jam packed with a full bathroom, bed, vanity, telephone, chandelier, and even custom curtains.

These Lego Hedgeman Legionaries Are Adorable

KarfOohlu's Lego Hedgeman Legionaries

When they are not running super fast Hedgehogs are also conquering space. These Lego Hedgeman Legionaries consist of a Standard Bearer and Shockgun Trooper. An amazingly awesome combo of the Rock Monster Body (from the Power Miners theme) and the recent Hedgehog (from Lego Friends). It is also worth taking a closer look at the Banner, the combination of the scorpion and wing works well, as does the purple Lego purse in the Shockgun.

Lego Frozen: Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle (41062) Review

Lego Frozen: Elsa's Sparkling Ice Castle 41062 Box Reviewed, mostlytechnic

Lego has the ability to make and sell Disney Frozen themed sets, and yet they only have one release so far. It seems that anything with the Frozen logo is instantly popular, and sells out in no time. This theme is a license to print money. The first Lego set is called Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle (41062), it is $39.99 and has 292 pieces. There are also three exclusive figures: Elsa, Anna, and Olaf. The piece to part ratio is extremely high, making this one of the more expensive sets for what you get. So is the Frozen Castle worth it? Check out the full review, by mostlytechnic, over on Eurobricks: here.

The full set is actually a bit different then what you would expect. The design of the castle does not reflect what is in the film, and is a weird white and transparent blue. This is more of a Frozen mountain then a castle. But, for most people that won’t matter, because the figures are what they want. And, Lego really went all out. The resemblance to their movie counterpart is extremely close for Lego figures. Elsa and Anna look good in Lego. Olaf looks good, but is not as special.

Meet the Lego Elves, Step Through the Portal This Spring

Lego Elves Logo

Lego has a new theme arriving this spring called the Lego Elves. Some of the first sets have already been revealed, but the Lego marketing is just starting to take off. The official Lego site has a teaser page up, promising more details in March 2015. Meanwhile some short videos have started to appear around the internet. Featuring  some beautifully animated videos, it would not be a surprise if the Lego Elves had their own cartoon (like Ninjago or Legends of Chima). Interestingly, there is very little Lego in these first videos.

Lego Elves Characters

The Lego Elves look like they would fit right in with the Disney Fairies. Seeing as Lego has been creating Disney themed Friends sets, it would be interesting if the Fairies line had a release too. There are four main Elves (Aira, Naida, Azari, and Farran) with this release, and one main human (named Emily Jones).

Make sure to check out the Teaser Trailer, and Meet Azari below:

The Lego Super Friends Project: 31 Custom Figures

JustJon's Custom Lego Super Friends, Superheroes

The Lego Friends figures have proven to be extremely customizable. These 31 custom figures that make up the Lego Super Friends Project prove just that. Created by JustJon, this project was revealed over the 31 days of July. In order to curate a list of possible customs figures, social media was heavily used to reach a wide audience with a wide variety of opinions. The 31 superheroes contain a good mix of characters from DC Comics and Marvel Comics. These figures were made with the use of Lego Minifigures accessories, hair pieces, and a little bit of paint. The larger size (compared to a Minifigure) makes it a whole lot easier to do custom paint work.

“I began the project surreptitiously by posing the question “Who is your favorite super heroine?” on my social networks. I took note of the characters people named and started creating a list on my white board, with the left side containing numbers for the days they were released on and the right side a list of potential characters to make. Once I began creating the custom minifigures, I made sure that each fit into the role of super heroine (as some people did request villains), that no character would be repeated in alternate costumes, and that I would release one per day for the entire month of July. I tried to vary the characters to appease to different audiences and keep things interesting for myself by using characters who were well known in the popular culture and those who were lesser known.” — JustJon

The complete roster of the Lego Super Friends Project includes: Supergirl, Phoenix, Black Widow, Sue Storm, Polaris, Storm, Batgirl, Rogue, Kitty Pryde, Captain Marvel, X-23, Stargirl, Zatanna, Psylocke, Wonder Woman, Batwoman, Mary Marvel, Catwoman, Scarlet Witch, Spider-Woman, Saturn Girl, Dazzler, Firestar, Kabuki, Hawkeye, Black Cat, Gamora, Jubilee, Black Canary, Hit-Girl, and Raven.

This Custom Lego Friends Wonder Woman is Awesome

tikitikitembo's Lego Friends Wonder Woman

The Lego Friends have proven to much more versatile then originally thought. One super cool way to customize your figures is with custom painting. This Lego Friends Wonder Woman is a great example of what can be done with some paint and a brush. To complete the look, the hair piece, and golden whip can be found in the recent Superman vs. Power Armor Lex (6862) set. Diana Prince is now ready to fight the worst Lego criminals out there.
