MOC Mondays: This Custom LEGO Attack on Titan Might Be a Minifigure’s Worst Nightmare

If minifigures can feel dread or fear, what do you think our little LEGO plastic pals are most afraid of? Is it being stepped upon by their human counterparts? Or be left unintentionally into the perpetual darkness underneath an uncaring washer? Or like any sane minifigure, to be eaten alive by this imposing LEGO Attack on Titan MOC by fan builder funnystuffs. I have not written about LEGO MOCs for quite some time since my last commentary on that excellent piece of work which is the custom LEGO Sauron from Lord of the Rings. But looking at this custom LEGO Attack on Titan, I know I needed to say something about this extraordinary brick rendition.

Shingeki no Kyojin (or popularly known as Attack on Titan) has been one of the most popular mangas out there with quite a following. It has also been adapted to an anime series bearing the same title as well. The series’ storyline is a typical coming of age story given a dark, apocalyptic twist:  pit a bunch of young, zealous soldiers against a horde of man-eating creatures in all shapes and sizes, and watch how the fate of the world hangs in the balance. If you haven’t read the most recent chapters of the manga series, then I guess I will stop here to avoid potential spoilers.

Lego Attack Titan (from Attack on Titan, Shingeki no Kyojin)

This LEGO Attack on Titan MOC depicts the Attack Titan used by one of the manga’s lead characters, Eren Yeager. LEGO fan builder funnystuffs managed to convey a terrifying brick version of this towering monster with all the necessary points of articulation complemented by its accurate size and scale. The choice of color is also spot-on, giving it a natural skin color similar to how this infamous Titan is depicted in the anime series. The way the head was sculpted, and how the Attack Titan’s hair was depicted, is also impressively accurate. The rough, wooly look on this brick Titan’s head was achieved using a combination of black, oversized claw, and tooth pieces. I also love how the green translucent pieces accentuate its eyes as well.

And like the mysterious inner workings of Titan anatomy, this custom LEGO Attack on Titan also features a hidden cockpit on its back. It even has space for a minifigure version of Eren to fit in. To be more precise, such an internal, fleshy compartment is to be found underneath the nape of a Titan based on the manga. But given the size of this minifigure-scaled creation, then I guess placing it at the back is the most reasonable option.

Finally, the complete array of the Scout Regiment’s fiercest warriors are also complete and in full battle gear in their latest omni-directional mobility gear.  Seeing the minifigure versions of Levi and Mikasa Ackermann makes me wish to see LEGO’s official versions of them.

Whatever is the case,  I’m pretty sure that minifigures will tremble in fear in seeing this brick of a monster. They just have to run fast enough to avoid being eaten. Be sure to check out funnystuff’s incredible brick creations that you can find over his Flickr page.

What We Know So Far About the LEGO Ninjago Season 15 Sets

As you may already know, this year marks the 10th anniversary of LEGO Ninjago since its debut back in 2011. Since then, the TV series has quite a following producing several seasons, an animated film, and a lot of cool LEGO sets to boast. And while we are still waiting for the LEGO Ninjago The Island sets to be released next month, it seems that LEGO has already laid out plans for its LEGO Ninjago Season 15 sets.

If you’re not too much into spoilers, then I suggest that you might need to hit that back button to keep yourself untainted about these numerous leaks that are spreading over the internet. But let me be clear that I am not posting any leaked images here in respect to LEGO’s embargo on these upcoming sets. However, if you insist, then read on and do a quick search over at Instagram and follow the trail of bricks right there.

If I remember it correctly, it was our friends from Promobricks who first broke the news regarding these LEGO Ninjago 2021 sets back in November. It was also somewhat expected considering that these sets are part of LEGO’s offering for the first half of the year. Though official images are already available back then coming primarily from a third-party retailer, there is an interesting piece of info that was included in the report. As it seems, LEGO not only has LEGO Ninjago The Island sets all ready set up but also including the tie-in sets that are supposed to be released in the 2nd half of 2021.

Particularly, this collection of LEGO Ninjago Season 15 sets will continue the adventure of the team from the uncharted island to the depths of the perilous seas. And this time around, the focus is now shifted to Nya and the mystery behind her elemental powers. Here’s how one particular TV station summarizes Season 15:

When Nya’s powers are disrupted, the ninja set off in search of answers and find themselves at the bottom of endless oceans where they discover that her powers are linked to an ancient mythical creature.

Though there is no working title revealed for this next season, it is clear from the get-go that their next adventure will be a sort of underwater expedition to discover this mythical sea creature. And as expected, the LEGO Ninjago tie-in sets for this season will reflect an underwater adventure theme. As listed by Promobricks, these sets will include:

  • Llyod’s Hydro Mech (71750)
  • Ninja Sub Speeder (71752)
  • Water Dragon (71754)
  • Temple of Endless Sea (71755)
  • Hydro Bounty (71756)
An Instagram post from one of LEGO’s social media channels reveals the LEGO Ninjago Lloyd’s Hydro Mech (71750) as it hitches a ride on a backpack. 

Recently, water-marked preliminary images of these sets have started to appear on social media. In fact, Lloyd’s Hydro Mech was actually teased in one of LEGO’s Instagram account, presumably from Chile.  One of the set’s prominent features includes an over-sized shoulder guard which is an inverted roof piece first seen in the LEGO Ninjago Movie Piranha Attack (70629).

The Ninja Sub Speeder is basically a race-car build fitted with turbines for its mags. It comes in a blue, orange, and black color scheme with three minifigures.

The Water Dragon for me is the most impressive by far. It features an underwater, Asian-inspired dragon that is somewhat reminiscent of the now discontinued LEGO Elves theme. It is impressively articulated and I assume that this set might be referencing the mysterious mythical creature that Nya needs to find.

The Temple of the Endless Sea features an underwater shrine of some sort and is guarded by a large and imposing sea creature. The way it is designed is similar to semi-circular temples or shrines from previous Ninjago seasons.

Finally, it seems that Destiny’s Bounty will also have an underwater counterpart in the form of the Hydro Bounty, less its sails of course. The latter has a slimmer and lower profile making it suitable for quick movements under water.

That’s how far I can go in describing these LEGO Ninjago Season 15 sets, and we can expect these to be released sometime in June, or within the third quarter of the year just in time for Season 15’s debut. In the meantime be sure to check with LEGO Shop@Home for the latest LEGO Ninjago offerings that you can expect next month.

Six New 2021 LEGO Monkie Kid Sets Revealed

In case you missed it, six new LEGO 2021 LEGO Monkie Kid sets are slated to arrive this spring. The news of their arrival came from another third-party retailer, Momoshop, in Taiwan. Though their images have been eventually taken down by the website, eagle-eyed LEGO Monkie Kid fans were quick to take notice and took it to social media to share their discovery.

If you recall, LEGO somehow teased on the arrival of this 3rd wave of LEGO Monkie Kid sets when the Monkie Kid’s Team Dronecopter (80023) was first revealed during one of China’s trade fairs from last year. During which LEGO also revealed that it has seven (including the Team Dronecopter) 2021 LEGO Monkie Kid sets slated to arrive in the first quarter of the year.

Thanks to Momoshop and later on to Promobricks, we can see what to expect from this 2021 wave which is expected to launch on March 1. Check out these images.

There are a couple of sets here that will surely end up on my LEGO wishlist which includes the Lion Guardian and Arachnoid Base. Now with a total of 22 sets since its introduction last year, the Monkie Kid theme certainly looks better than ever. We still have another set waiting to be revealed, tagged as set 80017, and a polybag in the form of the Mini Monkey King Warrior Mech (30344) which could be in the form of a promotional. Whatever is the case, we can expect LEGO Shop@Home to be updated in the next few days to include all of these new 2021 LEGO Monkie Kid sets so stay tuned!

LEGO Ideas Second 2020 Review Stage Results Are Finally In

The LEGO Ideas Review Board has finally released the results for its LEGO Ideas Second 2020 Review Results, including a final decision on a project that took a considerable amount of time to be evaluated. These sets were chosen as the next official LEGO Ideas sets among a record-breaking 35 product ideas submitted between May to September of 2020. These proposals managed to get the support of more than 10,000 LEGO fans who wished to see them translated into an actual LEGO product.

The announcement came earlier today through LEGO Engagement Manager Hasan Jansen and LEGO Associate Marketing Manager Piangward Kate Jarupakorn. You can watch their full announcement right here.

First off, among 35 fan submissions evaluated during the LEGO Ideas Second 2020 Review Stage, the honor of being the next official LEGO set has been awarded to Truman Cheng’s (aka legotruman) brick rendition of a timeless masterpiece – Vincent van Gogh: The Starry Night. 

It will be interesting to see how this classic painting will be translated into LEGO bricks especially considering that LEGO has now introduced its LEGO Art series. However, considering that the building techniques employed by Truman in his approved fan submission do not utilize the same kind of pixelated style of the LEGO Arts series, then it will be interesting to see how the LEGO Ideas design team will eventually finalize it as a set. I hope that they will stay true to the concept and building techniques seen in the original submission.

Just a side note – though I’m happy that The Starry Night eventually received a thumb’s up from the review board, I can’t help but wonder why none of the other 34 entries were selected. Like what other LEGO fans have noted, there are other 10K qualifiers in this roster that is quite popular among fans for references to pop culture icons. It will be nice to see for example an official LEGO set for Nintendo’s Animal Crossing considering its playability and appeal to adult and younger LEGO fans alike, or perhaps a set dedicated to the Greendale Community College based on 2009’s hit series Community. I’m sure that there are other worthy candidates from this pool of 35 submissions, and it’s a bit disappointing to see that only 1 was ultimately selected. Perhaps the LEGO Ideas Review Board needs to cut some corners considering the sheer number of approved projects still in development? I really don’t know, so it will be nice if the review team will provide more details on their decision.

But if there is any consolation that the LEGO Ideas Second 2020 Review Stage has to offer to LEGO fans, is the fact that the Blue Blur is back and just in time for his 30th birthday. We first saw his official minifig in the now-discontinued LEGO Dimensions Sonic the Hedgehog Level Pack (71244) from 2016. And just in case you missed out on him, having an official LEGO Ideas Sonic Mania: Green Hill Zone set along with other iconic characters of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise is certainly most welcomed. I missed out on the first LEGO Sonic minifigure, and I will certainly not miss my next opportunity to get this one.

The conclusion of the LEGO Ideas Second 2020 Review Stage now brings a total of 7 approved projects currently in development:

And while waiting for these approved projects to roll out in LEGO stores shortly, the LEGO Ideas review team already has its hands full for the Third 2020 review cycle with its total of 25 qualifying entries.

So what do you think of the outcome of LEGO Ideas Second 2020 Review Stage? Are you happy with the results? Let me know what you think in the comments below.

WATCH: LEGO Ninjago City Gardens (71741) Designer Video

LEGO has released an accompanying designer video to mark the release of its massively beautiful LEGO Ninjago City Gardens (71741). LEGO designers Markus Rollbühler and Michael Knap give us an inside tour of this 5,000+ piece LEGO set, and all of its little details that celebrates 10 years of LEGO Ninjago. Watch this.

Each level in this almost 2 1/2 feet tall set highlights a bit of LEGO Ninjago history throughout the decade since its inception in 2011. As a modular set, it’s really impressive to see how each of these levels manage to feature so many details that eagle-eyed Ninjago fans will surely see. The nice part about this set is that it can be seamlessly connected with the LEGO Ninjago Movie Ninjago City (70620) set for a bigger, more beautiful brick rendition of Ninjago City.

The LEGO Ninjago City Gardens is now available over at LEGO Shop@Home. It was placed on backorder status last week but is now back on stock so. If you’re eyeing to get this one, then perhaps now is the time to visit your local LEGO brand store or shop.LEGO.com. For more information about this set, you may check our recent post right here.

LEGO Ninjago The Island Set Images Revealed

Back in December, we saw LEGO’s H1 2021 catalog, and eventually, a glimpse at our first wave of upcoming LEGO sets which are expected to arrive during the first quarter. From there we learned that LEGO Ninjago will be introducing the LEGO Ninjago The Island subtheme, where we find our ninja heroes at odds against a new threat, deep in a mysterious jungle. The chief antagonist of the new subtheme goes by the name of Chief Mammatus and his loyal cabal collectively known as The Keepers.

Now thanks to Brickset, we have a closer, better look at these new LEGO Ninjago The Island sets, slated to arrive in March. This is just in time for the debut of LEGO Ninjago’s Season 14 animated series to be aired on Cartoon Network. As of this posting, these sets are yet to be listed over at LEGO Shop@Home, but I’ll update this post once they are up at LEGO’s online shopping portal. But for now, let’s a closer look.

As a final note, this subtheme will also be getting its own polybag in the form of Lloyd’s Quad Bike (30539). It also features a Lloyd Garmadon minifig in his jungle-ready outfit and 4×4 all-terrain vehicle. It’s most likely that this polybag will also be available sometime in March along with its larger set counterparts.

LEGO Ninjago Season 14 will also get its own polybag in the likes of the LEGO Ninjago The Island Lloyd’s Quad Bike (30539)
