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.

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:

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.

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.

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.

“After the Galactic Civil War, Stephanie & Andrea picked up this Army surplus AT-AT for dirt cheap, then retro-fitted it for use as Heartlake City’s latest Pet Taxi service.” — Tyler Sky

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.

“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.

Lego Friends Hardsuits: Blacktron and M-Tron themed Power Armor

colgs3b's Lego Friends Hardsuit, Blacktron Olivia

Science Fiction and the Lego Friends make for a strange combination that works well. Flickr user, colgs3b, has been building a whole series of Hardsuits for the Friends. These mechas appear to be in scale with the other Lego Friends figures. But you wont find them tending horses of farming. Although they may train in Karate during their off time. The first of the Hardsuit Friends is Blacktron Olivia. Using theming elements from the classic Lego Blacktron, Olivia looks like someone you would not want to mess with.

Olivia is not fighting alone. Her mother is also on the front lines wielding a massive gun and a deceptively friendly pink and teal paint scheme.

Hardsuit Stephanie is also present. With a purple and teal and yellow suit. Stephanie appears to be able to fly. Making her extremely dangerous.

When in danger the strongest Hardsuits are needed to hold the front line. Here M-Tron Mia is ready to defend against anything. Make sure to be very careful as her magnet technology is extremely deadly.

Lego Friends Mech, Bone Crushingly Cool

bermudafreze's Lego Friends Mech

The Lego Friends have been finding themselves in all sorts of Lego MOCs lately. Especially in the Space or Science Fiction theme. Bermudafreze, of Flickr, has build this deadly Lego Friends Mech. The Mech features a gatling gun, a massive clamp, missiles and bone crushing treads. In fact the treads are especially nice, built out of ball joint pieces. That idea looks great in this build. This mech unit is ready for whatever is thrown at it.

Friendly Fire with these Lego Friends Cyborgs

LarryLars's Lego Friends Cyborgs Friendly Fire

These Lego Friends inspired cyborgs are the creation of Larry Lars. Who has been refining the robotic body for a few years now. Which has paid off well with these awesome cyborgs. The first one (white, black hair) was created in 2012, while the newest (white, red hair and blue) are from 2013. The compact building style looks extremely delicate, but the end result is worth it. This is a great example of the Lego telephone being put to use. These Lego Friend Cyborgs look like they could fit into a Masamune Shirow manga (Appleseed, Ghost in the Shell).

LarryLars's Lego Friends Cyborgs Say Hello To My Little Friend

Lego made a smart move by allowing the Lego Friends figures to fit into the Lego System. This allows the various body parts to be mix and matched with other Lego pieces. The Lego Minifigure style hair can be used on the Friends figures. This greatly expands the available hair styles for your figures. Here the Lego Friends head has been matched with the anime style Minifig hair from the Exo-Force theme.
