The FriendsLoader, A Lego Friends Power Loader

Simon Liu's Lego Friends Power Loader

The Lego Friends are a lot tougher then they appear. Stephanie here looks like she is ready to load up some heavy cargo, or to kick some alien butt. There have been some great Minifigure scale Power Loaders, but this is one of the best Friends scale ones. It has even been dressed up with some pink; perfect for fitting in with all the other sets. This exoskeleton has some great details, especially the use of the Lego 1×1 round bricks. This Lego Friends Power Loader uses some common pieces, so it should be easy to build at home.

Lego Lowrider, Flamingo Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

Alex Jones's Lego Lowrider, Flamingo Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme 01

It looks like the Lego Friends have a new ride, or maybe Homer Simpson upgraded the sedan. Either way this Lego Lowrider is awesome. Alex Jones (Orion Pax) created this MOC titled the “Flamingo Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme.” It is always interesting to see what people can do with Lego pieces, especially those that have a limited color palette. It features a tri-tone paint job (hot pink, pink and purple), with chrome accents and whitewall tires. The car has hot pink wood paneling and the windshield is even transparent pink.  This Oldsmobile has style.

Now that the Autumn is under way, the Lego Friends are dreaming of warmer days. Specifically those peaceful spring time days, relaxing at a secret fishing hole. What better way then to spend time with your friends. This little creation is the work of Martin5478. This is a great example of integrating the new(ish) Lego Friends with your greater Lego collection.

Hartinih Liauw's Lego Friends Corner

What happens when you combine the Lego Friends Downtown Bakery (41006) with the famous Lego Cafe Corner (10182)? You get a Lego Friends Corner. The ground floor hosts an extremely popular bakery and pastry shop. Up to the second floor is a hip pet hair salon, where all the super cute dogs and cats go to get groomed. Then on to the rooftop is an outdoor area and garden for your pets. Which includes a tiny birdhouse, a dog bath, water fountain, and a peaceful garden. This modular style building also includes bicycle parking and a large outdoor patio.

Lego Star Wars And Lego Friends Crossover, Hothlake City

TylerSky and FrancesSky's Lego Friends Crossover, Star Wars Hothlake City

Hothlake City is a Lego Star Wars and Lego Friends crossover. Created by Tyler Sky and Frances Sky. It just so happens that this is not their only Lego Friends and Star Wars themed MOC; they also created the AT-AT Cleaning Station. The idea is to create something that appeals to both boys and girls, without being boring or dumbed down. The end result is a smashing success, as they have won the “Medium Planetary Structure” award at BrickCon 2014. The AT-AT is based on the official Lego AT-AT (75054) but has received an extensive paint job. These new Lego Friends mash-ups are very popular.

Lego Friends Working At A Star Wars AT-AT Cleaning Station

Tyler Sky's Lego Friends, Star Wars, AT-AT Cleaning Station

It was only a matter of time before we started to see Lego Friends and Lego Star Wars crossovers. Both of these contrasting themes go together much better then one would think. In fact most of the Lego Friends crossovers seem to go over well. Check out the Lovely Hotel, or the Paradisa Viper. The AT-AT Cleaning Station is the work of Tyler Sky. It is a huge display, and instantly grabs your attention. Everything you would expect is here, Tauntauns, a Snowspeeder, an AT-AT, Emma, Andrea, and even a defense turret. The only thing not present is snow.

Tyler Sky's Lego Friends, Star Wars, AT-AT Cleaning Station

“Meanwhile just outside the limits of Hothlake city, a repurposed AT-AT (now used as a pet taxi service) is getting a much needed weekly cleaning.

Keeping this mechanical marvel in top condition is no small feat, requiring the assistance of many helpers including a pair of drones, a couple of Tauntauns, and many friends. A repurposed turret installation helps to get water up to those hard to reach spots!

Emma and Andrea came along to help out after a long day of courier deliveries made with their new Land speeder. Landings are still a bit rough but she’ll get the hang of it soon enough!” — Tyler Sky

This AT-AT Cleaning Station recently made an appearance in a display window at the Vancouver Lego Store (November 2014). If you are quick enough, maybe you can see it too. Tyler Sky works on a lot of Lego Friends themed stuff, so keep an eye out for more featured displays.

The first wave of Disney Princess is currently on shelves, and a second new wave will be released in 2015. This release will include the super popular films Frozen and Aladdin. These new sets will more then likely sell out quickly.
