The STILTwalker is a yellow and black Lego MOC. This mech is outfitted with a duel cockpit design. It is held together with Technic Axles, which also allows the body to adjust height by sliding up and down. The walker is controlled with 3 main engines, and 2 smaller “movability” engines. It is outfitted with multiple guns, and even comes equipped with an anime style sword.

This Lego mech was inspired by the gas masks, and would operated in toxic environments. The STILTwalker is the creation of tanks, and you can find more information over on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/54660083@N07/sets/72157669076924714

Go Outdoors With A Lego 1974 Ford Bronco

Lino Martins Lego 1974 Ford Bronco

“In order to enjoy The Great Outdoors in style, you can’t go wrong with a classic 1974 Ford Bronco with swivel seats, wood paneling, and a working winch to pull you out of trouble when nature proves to be tougher than most other vehicles can handle. A canoe strapped to the roof makes this an ideal vehicle for leaving the city life behind for awhile. Remember, next time you’re out enjoying the wilderness, take only photos and leave only footprints. Nature will appreciate it!”

The upcoming Ghostbusters film is getting its first Lego set. The new Lego Ghostbusters Ecto-1 & Ecto-2 (75828) is ready to go. The set features some awesome new pieces, including more Lego hair. You can never have enough Lego hair. It will be on shelves on July 1st 2016 for $59.99 USD. This puts it at $10 more then the original Lego Ideas set, but you do get 2 additional minifigures. I have a feeling that this set will be right at home in the Firehouse Headquarters.

“My name is Kang, and this is my sister Kodos. ” – Lego Simpsons MOC

6kyubi6's Lego Simpsons Kang and Kodos

Kang & Kodos are some of the most iconic Simpsons characters. They landed on the Simpsons in the season 2 Treehouse of Horror special all the way back in 1990. Since then they have popped up in all sorts of episodes, but you can find them somewhere in every Treehouse of Horror. This Lego Kang & Kodos MOC is the creation of 6kyubi6. Who has been diligently recreating Springfield with their “Springfield Project” (here). The duo is looking good, and fit in perfectly with the standard Minifigure scale.

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.

This Lego Transformers Optimus Prime Is More Than Meets The Eye

Ralph S's Lego Transformers Optimus Prime Truck

Lego and Transformers seems like a pretty good match. The problem is that the recent movies and the cartoons take extreme liberties in the design. Usually there is no way these robots could fit into a tiny car. Since a computer can cheat and hide away a lot of the conflicting elements, the films get away with this. When you are working in Lego these conflicts need to be carefully worked out. Ralph S has created an extremely detailed Lego Optimus Prime. What separates this from all the other Lego Transformers MOCs is that this one can actually transform. The truck from is a good looking Lego MOC, even if you didn’t know what was hiding inside. Then with some careful transforming, Optimus Prime, stands tall. At 45-50cm in height, this makes the models scale at 1/22. Even better Optimus can stand on his own (although don’t sneeze around him, and don’t tell the Decepticons).

Lego Batman enjoys a good Saturday morning mowing the grass with his Bat MOWbile. Afterwards, he enjoys cruising down the highway to the local hardware store to pick up some weed killer. For his Poison Ivy problem.

This is a super simple Lego MOC that ended up being awesome. Check out the blade guard area. The Lego Bat MOWbile is the creation of lego_panda, and you can find more about it here: https://www.reddit.com/r/lego/comments/3cnu3r/bat_mowbile/

The Griggs Industries GARC Racer “High & Mighty” – A Lego Spaceship

Genghis Don's Lego High and Mighty

This is the Griggs Industries GARC Racer “High & Mighty.” A creation of Genghis Don. It is perfect. The yellow and blue colors create a striking spaceship that looks ready to win the space race. It seats two pilots, and features an uncommon vertical design. But, what really sets this MOC apart from the other Lego Spaceships is the massive amount of stickers and/or decals. This is a racer with a whole lot of sponsors, and they want to be seen.
