The old Lego Trolls are interesting. Only their arms/hands move which limits their usability. Lego should articulate the legs, at the very least. Look at the Minifigure compared to these Bigfigures. Even with their limited use, people still find new things to do with them. Check out this Lego Troll by nita_great. It looks ready for a night out with friends. They even posted a photo showing the parts. So you too can dress up your Trolls, or even your Hulks.

Grogmar Trollmaster: The Basher of Skulls is one fearsome looking Orc. Created by Slamaskin, using pieces from the recent Fantasy Era Castle theme. Who knew that the relatively plain looking Lego Troll could look so good with some slight modifications. Now sporting a sort of battle backpack with chains and bone decorations. The end result is great, and helps to increase the Trolls usability. Adding this sort of detailing is a good way to get these things to show up in the more detailed Hobbit or Lord of the Rings builds.

At first glance the Friendsington Castle looks like a normal friendly Lego Friends castle. But, then you notice some of the details such as the Orcs and Troll, or the redecorated Batcave, or even Jack Sparrow. Friendsington Castle is a weird blend of Lego Friends, Superheroes and other Lego themes. There is a certain charm to the madness. Created by fujiia in collaboration with Kloou for the Fana’Briques 2013 expo.
“An ordinary day at Friendsington Castle. Despite the naughty Orcs’ constant attacks, our Friends prefer to develop their artistic senses with little regard for those poor Superheroes.”
One of the most surprising details is under the castle. It looks like the Lego Friends have spent a lot of time redecorating the Batcave. Turning it from a dark and gloomy cave into a bright and clean place for cats. Even Batman’s Tumbler has been completely repainted. Now featuring a green and yellow scheme. Batman is probably less than enthusiastic about these changes, but may be even more upset that Wolverine seems to have found his way into the cave. Superman seems to be without pants, and Spiderman has just gotten a wild hairdo. This is just a sample of the crazy going on here.
