Looks Like Meat’s Back On The Menu – Pokemon Roadkill

Cecilie Fritzvold Lego Pokemon Roadkill

According to Cecilie Fritzvold, this is what happens when you play Pokemon Go while driving. They created this humorous Lego MOC as part of an Iron Builder compitition. The challenge piece is the new Modified 2 x 3 Pentagonal Tile, which first started showing up in Nexo Knights sets. They made a convincing tire tread, which is something that would have been hard to do without these tiles. Poor Pikachu.

Build Your Own Lego NES Pi Case

WayGroovy Lego NES Pi

The Nintendo NES Classic has proven to be more popular then anyone planned. Months after the release the NES Classic is still extremely rare. The other down side is that it only 30 games. You can wait around to buy one of these, or you can build your own (which some people might consider better). You just need a Raspberry Pi B+ and some technical knowledge. Best of all you can even build your own NES case out of Lego. WayGroovy has done just that. This MOC is based on the work by Chris McVeigh. With a few modifications WayGroovy was able to fit the whole thing in an amazingly small package.

The best part is that they documented the process, so you can build one yourself. Check out the Lego NES Pi Case here: http://imgur.com/a/8EeyD

Chris Maddison Lego NES Controller, Up, Up, Down, Down…

The NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) controller is the most iconic design of video gaming. The grey, black, and red are instantly recognizable. This Lego version is the creation of Chris Maddison. Who built this MOC for the Iron Builder 5.0 competition. The challenge piece is the new Nexo Knights shield. You can find them being used to recreate the D-Pad. The Start and Select buttons are another perfect recreation. The whole thing makes you want to try out the famous Konomi code: Up, Up, Down, Down…

We Love Lego Katamari Damacy

Matt De Lanoy Lego Katamari Damacy Prince

The King of All Cosmos has been drinking again and has made a mess. Destroying the universe. Good thing the little Prince is there to clean everything up. He starts by rolling everything up into a Katamari, a sticky ball. Katamari Damacy is known for its weird art style, concept, and gameplay. But, the game is most famous for its awesome soundtrack. It is weird that this video game series has been struggling to find a place with the newer gaming systems. For now we can just create our own adventures. Matt De Lanoy has created a Lego Katamari Damancy MOC. Featuring the ball and the Prince. This was part of an Iron Builder competition.

The World Needs Heroes – A Lego Overwatch Collection

shm03337 Lego Overwatch Project

The super popular video game Overwatch has at least 23 characters, and that number is growing. With the newest being Sombra. Many people have been building Lego Overwatch MOCs based on these characters for a while now. Lego builder shm03337 has been creating a whole collection of Overwatch heroes. They have currently built nine, which seems like a lot but is not even half of them. This is a huge project.

The group consists of Lego versions of D.Va, Bastion, Torbjorn, Soldier 76, Mercy, Reaper, Pharah, Reinhardt, and Genji. The D.Va stands out for just how much work went into it. Not only did shm03337 build the character but they also built her mech suit. D.Va can also fit inside the suit, with some “slight” modifications to the Lego figure (removing legs). Then there is Bastion who has his Lego bird, Torbjorn with his awesome beard, Mercy’s wingspan, and Reinhardt’s huge hammer. There are so many characters, so if you do not see your favorite it might be added at a later time.

Begin Your Watch With These Videos

There is also a good 6 minute video that shows off all the little details for these Lego Overwatch characters. This was put together after the first 7 heroes where built, so a few of the newer ones are missing. It is a must watch video, especially to see how they all work.

There are also a lot of videos documenting each Lego MOC hero. You can find the D.Va video embedded below. It covers the design, and features of the build. And even shows how D.Va fits inside the mech. Check out their YouTube channel for all the videos.

Hammerhead Garage – Lego Final Fantasy XV

Joseph Z Lego Final Fantasy XV

It looks like the heroes from Final Fantasy XV (Noctis, Gladiolus, Ignis, and Prompto) have stumbled into some sort of Lego MOC. Just another detour from the main quest. You wouldn’t want them to actually do what they are supposed to (which you don’t, the main quest is…). You could say the game has a few hubs in the open world portion. One of which is the Hammerhead Garage. Home of Cid and Cindy. For some reason they are more then happy to wash all of the dust and spiderwebs off the Lego Regalia. This Hammerhead Garage MOC is the creation of Joseph Z.

This Nintendo Game Boy Has Gone Game Bad

JBF Lego Nintendo Game Bad

Sometimes Nintendo Game Boys go bad. Throwing cartridges around, and burning through batteries. This Lego Game Bad is the creation of J.B.F. The whole MOC is works well, but the buttons are especially nice. Check out the 1×2 flat bricks wedged between 1×1 wedges. The D-Pad control looks spot on too. The Nintendo Game Bad plays only the worst games, which is no problem. The Game Boy library is full of junk, although it has a few gems. Just make sure to keep it fed with AA batteries.

Giant Pikachu Says Hello! – 25,000 Lego Bricks

Game Mania Lego Giant Pikachu

If those other Lego Pikachu MOCs were too small for you, then this is the one you have been looking for. Dirk Van Haesbroeck was commissioned by Game Mania, a Dutch video game store, to build two giant Pikachu models. The end product stood 1.5 meters tall, which is just about 5 feet tall. Each giant Pikachu model is built with just over 25,000 Lego pieces. In the end it looks like these models were auctioned off for charity, with one of them going for €3,500, or $3,700. That puts it at 15¢ per piece.

Game Mania Lego Giant Pikachu Build

The model is mostly hollow inside, but there is some supporting structure hidden around. In the build video (below) you can see a system of Technic pieces were used to hold Pikachu’s massive tail.

Quick Get This Lego Life-sized Pikachu Some Ketchup

alanboar Lego Life-sized Pikachu

Here is a life-sized Pikachu (Based on the Pokemon video game) made out of Lego. Slightly sharper and less fluffy then a real one. That just means you need to hug it more. Alanboar created this Lego Pikachu out of 3,000 pieces. It could have been more pieces, but this MOC is hollow inside. There are only five colors used; yellow, brown, black, red, and white. This limited palette keeps the cartoon quality that has made Pikachu so famous. In order to get the proportions and design correct this Lego Pikachu was first sketched out on paper. While it is holding a Pokeball; Ketchup may be a more fitting prop.

alanboar Lego Life-sized Pikachu 01

Not everyone has 3,000 or so yellow Lego bricks. In that case there is a mini version of Pikachu that used a fraction of the life-sized model. The mouth and nose area is simple, and a perfect detail.

Lego City Undercover Coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4, XBox One, & Steam

Lego City Undercover Trailer Nintendo Switch

Lego City Undercover is one of the best Lego video games made. Too bad lot of people haven’t had the chance to play it seeing as it was an exclusive to the Nintendo WiiU. The good news is that TT Games has released some details about the upcoming rerelease. Lego City Undercover will feature improved graphics. It also sounds like the controls and UI will be modified to suit the new platforms. Speaking of which, the game will be released on the new Nintendo Switch, along with the Playstation 4, XBox One, and Steam. That pretty much covers everyone!

Oh yeah, the Switch version will be full of secret Nintendo cameos. I sure hope that means you can ride Yoshi.
