Power & Light Building (now luxury apartments) in Kansas City, MO. This is a commission I built back in 2017. A very fun build that I was able to deliver to the building to KC for a final destination in the building. The build is 1:120 scale.
Mr. Potato Head from Toy Story.
I originally made this in 2012 using dark tan for the body, but my 2020 version uses medium nougat, which I think is more accurate. I updated a lot of the internals due to better SNOT pieces being available now, and slightly updated the arms and hands as well.
Mac Tonight; the coolest fast food mascot of the 1980’s. I planned this as a minifig(ish) scale model, but after seeing my Arrested Development Frozen Banana Stand I saw an opportunity to double the top of the banana to attempt a crescent moon shape. I’m glad I got to get another cool MOC out of the shaping! :)
Following up on the trophies I made for BricksLA 2018, I also built three of these “MOC of Note” trophies for BricksLA 2019, which was held in Pasadena, CA earlier this month. It was a perfect followup to my LEGO “sports” trophy, and maintained the theme from 2018.
The funny thing is, I actually won one of these trophies for my Los Angeles City Hall MOC that I (re)debuted at the show!
I built three of these “MOC of Note” trophies for BricksLA 2018, which is held annually in Pasadena, CA in the month of January. It was a perfect opportunity to build a LEGO “sports” trophy; I’ve had some pictures saved in my ideas folder for about 5 years so I’m glad I was able to follow through on it.
I also built MOC of Note trophies for BricksLA 2017 but I don’t think I have any pictures saved unfortunately.
I started this bust of Boba Fett, based off the Lowell Sphere, maybe 5 years ago, and kept it as a WIP in my bin of sand green plates. It wasn’t until just yesterday, when I purchased the Brickheadz Boba Fett and was able to use a good amount of the pieces to finish this model to my satisfaction. I’m REALLY happy with it! :)
Proto Man is the older “brother” of the titular character of the Mega Man video game series. I’ve always thought he was awesome with his shades, yellow scarf, and general aloofness. I’ve been wanting to create a large version of Proto Man for a while, and drew inspiration from Mike Nieves’ Proto Man and MOKO’s Masked Rider. I hope I honored their builds with this one.
Glad to have this off my list, and I’m really happy with the results! I initially got the drive to build this when the Series 6 Robot minifigure (with winder key) was released, but wasn’t happy with a rounded globe piece until LEGO released the spheres from Jurassic World. A free gumball to whoever guesses the amount of “gumballs” in the globe!
Hello everyone! I’ve been pretty quiet in the last few months. I just realized my last post on the LEGO Ideas MMPR Project was just over 6 months ago… WOW! Life’s kept me busy–not completely away from LEGO–just away from the internet.
Anyway, here’s my latest: a rathtar from The Force Awakens. I’ve always loved making brick-built Star Wars creatures, and The Force Awakens offers several cool new ones. It was a fun build, and I’ll admit it’s always fun to use the Lowell Sphere as a base for any build but also incorporate different elements like the tentacles. My favorite little feature is that it fits a minifigure!
To (more tangibly) celebrate passing the halfway point on this project, I wanted to build part of the Megazord. It has a removable sled that comfortably fits all five Power Rangers, too! Please continue to spread the word! #LEGOMMPR
