Here’s How To Build Your Own Custom LEGO Transformers Optimus Prime!

LEGO has just announced its latest LEGO set in the form of one of the most iconic Autobot in the franchise.  And though we need to wait until the end of this month to get our hands on it, builders can start building their own custom LEGO Transformers Optimus Prime even sooner with these neat building instructions from Build Better Bricks.

If you’ve been following our articles here in TBS, you’ll notice that a significant portion of our blogs is dedicated to the unique creations of the LEGO fan community. And as a fan of Generation 1 Transformers, I’m just excited to see this official LEGO version of Optimus, together with other brick-built renditions of some of the most memorable characters of the G1 era. Talk about having Soundwave and Devastator in all their LEGO glory and you’ll get the picture.

And this time around, Build Better Bricks is giving us a treat by letting us create our own custom LEGO Transformers Optimus Prime while we wait for the release of the official LEGO version on June 1.

 

With only a third of the parts needed to build the actual LEGO Optimus, B3’s custom brick rendition of Prime only requires less than 500 LEGO pieces to put together, making it a great way to jump back and reminisce about the G1 Transformers era without investing too much in new LEGO parts.

While B3’s version of the Optimus’ G1 version may not be at par with the actual 10302 set in terms of scale, this original creation from LEGO Masters Champion Tyler Clites still boasts some nifty features like 24 points of articulation, full transformation to his Semi Truck Mode, and his iconic ion blaster and Matrix of Leadership accessories. Do take note, however, that Build Better Bricks only offers the building instructions to create this custom version of Prime. You’ll have to provide the needed LEGO parts.

LEGO Transformers Optimus Prime

And if you want to give this a try, B3 is offering the building instructions to this for a minimal amount of $8. You’ll get high-quality instructions in PDF format, a parts list, and stud.io file that lets you easily import the model into Bricklink to get the parts you need if ever some of them are not available in your collection.

Let me know what you think about this B3 offering, and be sure to visit their website to know more about their custom LEGO Transformers build. While you’re at it, make it a point to see the rest of the custom LEGO builds that B3 has put together.

This Custom LEGO Serenity Set Is a Space Renegade’s Dream

While director/producer Joss Whedon takes a momentary back seat from Zack Snyder’s Justice League streaming in just a couple of days via HBO Max, Build Better Bricks now relives one of Whedon’s most iconic pop-culture creations in this massive LEGO Serenity MOC.

Yep, as bold as maverick as the crew of the Serenity back then, this next B3 creation is its grandest offer to date. Based on the 2002 hit Fox TV series Firefly by writer and director Joss Whedon, and its 2005 theatrical counterpart, this custom LEGO Serenity build features tons of details that are very much familiar to fans of the TV series and film. Like its original counterpart, this build features the ship’s prominent large rear engine module, a pair of wing-mounted, rotating vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) engines, and a pair of two-man shuttles known in the series as “Beetles”.

LEGO Serenity

On the inside of this brick-built creation, the details are likewise spectacular. We have a fully accessible cockpit, a spacious hallway connecting to the dining area and infirmary. The dining area and most of the ship’s sections may also be accessed by removing its middle top exterior or any of the opening hatches below it. Its rear engine room is also accessible to reveal its full interior.

And with over 2,000 pieces LEGO pieces used to build this custom LEGO Serendipity, it is B3’s largest building instruction ever created following its custom LEGO Milano back in 2017. So if you’re interested to revisit some of those wild space adventures aboard your very own Firefly-class spaceship, be sure to head over to Build Better Bricks to purchase the premium building instructions for this custom LEGO Serendipity MOC. For $25, you’ll get a hefty 285-page building instruction in full PDF format, a parts list, and a Stud.io file that you can easily import to Bricklink to buy the needed LEGO parts that you’ll need. Remember that you’ll need to purchase or provide the required LEGO parts separately, as B3 only offers the building instructions for this massive custom set.

While you’re at it, be sure to check out B3’s buy 2 get 1 promo on all of the building instructions that you will purchase from their store. Happy building!

Here’s Our Tribute to the King: Free Custom LEGO Black Panther Wakanda Statue Building Instructions For Everyone

Last week was a tough one to go through, following the terrible news of the untimely passing of one of MCUs pillars that helped bring to the big screen the mighty character of King T’Challa. And though Chadwick Boseman will be remembered through the many endearing characters in critically acclaimed films such as 42, Marshall, and 21 Bridges, it was in MCU’s Black Panther that he made his mark on Hollywood as one of the most brilliant actors of our time. And as our way of remembering the King, our online storefront The Brick Show Shop, is giving away a complete set of building instructions for a custom LEGO Black Panther Wakanda Statue.

Designed by our very own Tyler Clites (winner of this year’s US LEGO Masters TV Show over at Fox), this custom LEGO Black Panther Wakanda Statue requires 371 LEGO pieces that you can find from your LEGO collection or ordered via Bricklink. Aside from the building instructions, you’ll also get a printable parts list and an .IO file that you can upload over at Bricklink for easy purchasing of parts.

The nice thing about this is that you can get this set of free building instructions without making any qualifying purchases over at our shop. This is our way of showing appreciation to Boseman and the cinematic legacy that he left behind.

As a side note and in case you’ve missed it, Build Better Bricks also has for sale a set of building instructions for you to create a custom LEGO Black Panther Bust. I love to see this one standing side by side together with the Wakanda Statue.

Build Better Bricks is also offering this set of high-quality building instructions for a custom LEGO Black Panther Bust.

We may never see the likes of Chadwick Boseman any more, but he will always be remembered in the LEGO creations that we will build in honor of his work and legacy. Thanks, King, and live on forever!

Check Out This Double Monster Trouble From Build Better Bricks

We’re just counting the days before a swarm of Treat or Tricksters come knocking at our doors this Halloween, and what a better way to add some brick-building fun to this occasion by including this double monster treats from our master builders from Build Better Bricks. Inspired by classic horror films, these custom LEGO Werewolf and LEGO Frankenstein Monster builds stands at 8 and 11 inches tall respectively – a formidable monster duo that never goes out of style. This monster tandem will be a great addition to that fear-inducing and gut-wrenching custom LEGO Aliens Xenomorph that I featured a couple of months ago.

Double Monster

Double Monster

I love the range of articulation in these Halloween-inspired builds, especially the custom LEGO Werewolf. Such a well-built, organic form gives this creation a sense of ghoulish character and personality that makes you feel that it might jump on you at any time. The custom LEGO Frankenstein, on the other hand, retains it’s clunky, heavy built reminiscent of how the original monster looks and feels like. It is also well articulated and offers a lot of possibilities for display. This double monster brick builds is a sure way to get anyone’s attention this all Hallow’s eve.

If you want to add some LEGO brick-building fun this Thursday night, then be sure to head over at Build Better Bricks to purchase and download the building instructions to create these ghastly fun builds. Happy building!

Custom LEGO Werewolf

 

The best way to build this beast is in the light of a full moon…that is, unless you are also a lycanthrope. This model is highly articulated to capture a werewolf’s organic form. He can be posed standing or on all fours. This model would be a wonderful addition to any Halloween display.

Parts required: 448

Dimensions: 8″ tall x 4.5″ wide x 7.5″ deep

Estimated Parts Cost: ~ $55

Custom LEGO Frankenstein’s Monster

It’s Alive! Well, not really. However, you can play the role of Dr. Frankenstein and bring this creation to life. This monster is part man and part machine…and part plastic too. He’s harmless unless you put it near an open flame. Then he may melt. The model is fully articulated and stands exceptionally well. Great for your Halloween display!

Parts required: 557

Dimensions: 11″ tall x 7″ wide x 4″ deep

Estimated Parts Cost: ~ $40

Oh Boy! This Custom LEGO Mickey Mouse Pays Homage to the Most Famous Disney Character of All Time

Perhaps it’s safe to say that Mickey Mouse is Disney’s most brick-rendered character ever since, well, we learned to play with LEGO bricks. Our good ol’ pal Mickey further cemented this title when LEGO and Disney entered into a partnership that gave us our first LEGO sets featuring the iconic mouse. Initially made available as part of LEGO’s Baby Theme, a predecessor to the LEGO Duplo line back in 2000, Mickey continued to be a part of LEGO sets that catered to budding preschool builders. However, during the past 3 to 4 years, LEGO made Mickey’s presence even more felt across its sets now catering to an older generation of LEGO fans who grew up with Disney’s main star. In 2016, we saw our very first LEGO Mickey Mouse minifigure in the LEGO Disney CMF (71012), and the massive LEGO Disney Castle (71040) This year, LEGO added another tribute to the legendary Disney character with the introduction of the LEGO Ideas Steamboat Willie (21317) and the LEGO Disney CMF Series 2 (71024) both of which feature a vintage version of the star.

Furthermore, we also get to see a LEGO Mickey Mouse BrickHeadz edition which gives us our very first official brick-built version of the character. The LEGO fan community was likewise eager to showcase their own custom LEGO Mickey Mouse builds: from a Mecha Mickey Robo to a LEGO Mickey Mouse brick statue, LEGO fans can’t seem to have enough of the most famous mouse of all time.

This time around, Build Better Bricks also pays tribute to Mickey with its own brick-built version of the character while throwing in a couple of play features at the same time. B3’s LEGO Mickey Mouse is a whimsical take on the Disney star’s fun-loving and adventurous spirit. The way Mickey’s face and head turned out is really spot-on, making use of LEGO’s new rounded tiles. There are also a couple of legs and arms articulations that are featured in this original B3 creation which allows you to pose this custom LEGO Mickey Mouse in many different ways.

LEGO Mickey Mouse

It’s Mickey Mouse, the most iconic and famous cartoon character of all time. This LEGO model features lots of articulation and allows you to bring a little animation magic to the model. The face, eyes, hands, feet and buttons all make use of some of the new rounded tile pieces which are perfect for this model. Explore some of the fun techniques in the head which capture his iconic look. ~ Build Better Bricks

If you wish to try and build this original creation, then you may want to check Build Better Bricks’ website to purchase the instructions for building this MOC. Coming in at 262 pieces, this B3 original design may include parts that are not yet available in your parts inventory, so your purchase will also include a Stud.io file that allows you to seamlessly buy and transact over at Bricklink for those missing parts. This is also a good time to buy those building instructions that you want since B3 is running a buy 2 get 1 promotional. Hot dog! Happy building!
