I have decided to be brave and be the first to try entering this category.  Perhaps I can inspire others with better modifying skills to post their stuff.  All of my minifigures are mixes and matches of existing Lego components.  All of the accessories are Lego accessories.  

Entry Name – The Rivals

The Story – Rival Seers compete for the fortunes of the minifigure community while life goes on all around them.

Back View

The minifigures:
(Visible in front view of vignette, working bottom to top)

1.  Renfield – Every vampire needs a human minion to help them with the peculiarities of their condition.  Unfortunately insanity and an appetite for vermin seem to come with this job.  This minifigure’s accessories are disheveled hair, a spider, and a rat.  Also features a crazy looking face and rumpled clothing.

2.  The Mechanic – A good ole boy with a good ole work ethic.  This minifigure features a ball cap from his favorite team and a hard working flannel shirt.  His accessories are a couple tools.

3.  Japanese Grandma – All Geishas must grow up.  Features a face with old features, a pretty but rather conservative kimono, a parasol and some cherries.  

4.  Pops Orchestra Conductor – The white blazer and maroon pants show that this maestro favors Sousa Marches over Mozart Symphonies and show tunes over song cycles.  Also features a conducting baton, gray hair, and a face with glasses.

5.  Red Riding Hood – She’s off to granny’s with her traveling cloak and goodies.  Features a feminine face, skirt, red cape, hood, basket and croissant.

6.  Amateur Film Director – If he films enough stuff and barks enough orders through his megaphone, his big break might just be an editing room away, until then, he’s still his own camera man.  Features a suave hairstyle, face with big smile and sunglasses, video camera and megaphone.

7.  The Martian – He comes in peace, he’s just lost because his communicator ran out of juice.  Features futuristic outer space clothing, bright green skin, peace flag, complicated but currently dead futuristic communication device.

8.  Super Fan – Nobody loves the Clutchers more than this guy and he has the air horn to prove it.  Features jersey, ball cap, air horn, and pennant.

(Visible in Back View of Vignette, working bottom to top)

9.  Trick-or-Treater – He’s not really a ghost, he’s just dressed like one.  Give him candy and he’ll go away.  Features a glow-in-the-dark ghost costume and a bag for goodies.

10.  Amateur Skier – Awesome designer Sweater, check; coordinated helmet, gloves, skis and poles, check; athletic ability, not so much.  Features all of the above and a suitably terrified expression for his first trip down the big slope.

11.  Ping Pong Champion – No one can beat him at table tennis.  No one.  Features intense face and hair, paddle, and ping-pong ball.

12.  Elven Priestess – Features a highly decorated green dress, cloak, gem, chalice, and feather for her hair for optimum mysticism.  

13.  Fortune Teller – (you can actually see her face in the front view and her back in the back view) Madame Brick sees all in her crystal ball, even if she only has one eye.  Features feminine face with eye patch, cape, and crystal ball.

14.  Rock Singer – Yes, I know there is already a pop singer, but this girl is way too tough for pop.  Features trendy but tough hairstyle, awesome jacket with space patches and lots of zippers, a microphone, a singing face and a bunch of attitude.

15.  Troll Doll – They were popular in the 1960’s and again in the 1990’s.  With hair this awesome it is only a matter of time before they become popular again.  This one features colorful clothes, short legs, crazy green hair, and a hairbrush.

16.  Sand Volleyball Player – He’s got a surfer t-shirt, sunglasses and a ball, just add sand.

Name: House Party

Posted Image


When the guests show up for a house party, it seems not everyone got the memo that it was a costume party.  Those that did dress up may have overdone it.  And some are probably getting a little too into character.

My Series:
1 Superhero- Swoosh Factor's super powers are flying and looking good while doing so.
2 Shakespearean Actor- I knew him well, Horatio.  He takes his craft very seriously.
3 Postman- Even though he mostly only delivers bills and junk mail, he does it very cheerily.
4 Stay-at-home Dad- He may have gotten in over his head.  Complete with diaper bag and pacified infant.
5 Warlock- Magic is a serious business.  This guy doesn't perform at birthday parties.
6 Troll Assassin- Not every troll is a clumsy oaf, some can be stealthy.  Well, stealthier.
7 Winged Acolyte- She's no angel, she's a warrior.
8 Test Pilot- Insert "Top Gun" quote here.
9 Plumber- Sometimes, you gotta call in a professional.  Or at least this guy.
10 Gambler- This guy knows when to hold 'em and when to fold'em.  His gun belt is made by BrickForge.  Great item.
11 Bearded Lady- No circus sideshow is complete without this marvel.
12 Camper- Can help old ladies across the street and start a fire with some twigs but isn't old enough to drive.
13 Beach Comber- Not everything that washes ashore is junk.  This guy spends his time searching for treasure.
14 Bowler- Knows the fine art of knocking down 10 pins in one try.  Or two.
15 Curling Enthusiast- Curling may not be a well known sport but it is this guy's entire life.
16 Tightrope Walker- She knows that proper balance makes all the difference.

Posted Image
Lots happening on the roof.

Posted Image
Upstairs.  The gambler (gunbelt by BrickForge) comes down the stairs as the dad tries to get the baby to sleep in the chair.  The beach comber seems to have found some treasure under a pillow.  I wonder if it's tooth fairy related.

Posted Image
Downstairs, people are mingling.  Well, most people.  The green guy seems a little anti-social hiding under the stairs.  
And one guy ignores the party and turns on the TV.  At least someone joins him...

Posted Image
I took shots of them in fours.  These are my favorite: The Superhero, The Shakespearean Actor, The Postman, The Stay-at-home Dad.  My Flickr has the others.
The Flickr Set

Edit: I realized I could have one more picture so I included one of the upstairs.

Cryostasis

XRB-12 looked at the cryofluid as it sprayed towards him. He'd already sealed leaks in seven other sectors and sector 54A was in far better condition than a lot of the sectors he'd checked in the past few days. Today was not going to be a good day.

The facility was old, far older than any of the maintenance robots could remember, each having been assembled by their predecessors. XRB-12's predecessor, XRA-12, warned him there'd be days like this, days when it felt like the facility was about to undergo a catastrophic failure. XRB-12 prayed today wouldn't be that day.

Posted Image

XRB-12 proceeded to load up the inventory for this sector. It was always worth checking that each cryochamber contained what is was supposed to, as there was always a risk that one of them would temporarily shutdown when a leak occured. There was always a lot of paperwork involved when the contents of a cryochamber was found wandering aimlessly around the facility.

The Laboratory Of Time

Posted Image

The evil Time Twister has returned from 1997.
He built experimental windows in his laboratory, which he can use in his travel across time to other worlds.

Posted Image

Battling against his weaponized hovercraft on the roof top, the only hero who can stop his disastrous action is the Cyber Ninja from year 2109.
The Lead Vocalist finished his last concert and got completely drunk.
Drinks are served at the 4th floor by a handsome and charming Bartender.
Sexy but deadly, the Cowgirl broke out from the window to wild west. She was not scared by the Witch Doctor, who was performing the dark healing magic using the bones he collected.

Posted Image

Breaking the window to inferno, Einherjar, the lone warrior who died in battle, resurrected and prepared for another fight. The Monk accepted his challenge and stopped him from getting out from hell.
The Paparazzi, who specialized in candid photography of all Lego celebrities, will not miss a single shot of this epic fight.
The lava melted the floor and the fallen debris damaged the machine down below. A pig escaped from the meat processing room and drew the attention of an Alien Explorer.
The Insane Butcher was angry and will not let anyone touch his pig. The window next to the meat processing room is the Greek Temple. A noble Greek Princess is in it.

Posted Image

Emergency situation at the 1st Floor. A female Security Guard was shocked when she saw the cracks of one of the windows. Water is pouring into the laboratory corridor.
The Sea Villian is actually cracking the glasses in his attempt to explore the world other than the sea.
And there were bombs placed all over the window in the neighboring world. The Bomb Squad Unit is doing his very best to deactivate all those bombs.

How does this laboratory of time work ?
Ask the Clockmaker at the basement.

He runs around the beach flexing his large muscles to impress the ladies. When there's a girl drowning, he's quick to the rescue, but he might take a bit longer if it's a guy.
Accessory: rescue buoy

Old style diver:
He collects old diving helmets and sometimes takes them for a test dive.
Accessories: diving helmet and air supply tank.

Golfer:
After he struck a hole in one on his first trip to the golf field ever (his dad brought him once as a child), he's now obsessed with becoming the world's best golfer. Alas, he's not really any good, and frequently sends the goldball flying way off the field...
Accessories: golf club (from brickforge) and golf ball

Ballerina:
She has done ballet since early childhood and has made her entire appartment into a ballet practice room with large windows so that the world can see her performance.

Computer geek:
Spends most of his time programming on one of his numerous linux machines. He's the goto guy when you have computer problems (of course, he hates that, he's not tech support! But beeing a friendly geek, he always helps out).
Accessories: Laptop and smartphone

Posted Image

Bagpipe player:
He's pround of his heritage, and practices playing his bagpipe as often as he can. But the question everyone wants answered: is he wearing underwear?
Accessories: bagpipe

Band kid:
Plays the drum in the school band. He likes to march down the street playing even without the rest of his band.
Accessories: Drum and drumsticks

Invisible man:
Being invisble is not just a walk in the park. In fact, to be able to walk in the park without bumping into people, the invisible man wears a black hat and a cloak. But this has the side effect of scaring people off. He has tried to get doctors to give him skin with color, but the surgeons never find him once he's naked on the operating table.

Surgeon:
Always ready to save you from life threatening injuries, the surgeon is well renowned for his skills and expertise. He has been having some difficulties helping the invisible man though...
Accessories: scalpel

Gingrebread man:
Created in an attempt to set a world record for largest gingerbread man, he somehow came to life and scared the chef away. He now feels very sad and lonely (even though his face is stuck in a smile), and hopes to someday meet a gingerbread woman.
Accessories: candy cane

Posted Image

Cosplayer:
Goes to as many cosplaying events and costume parties as she can, and always has a new costume from one of her many favourite anime, mangas and games.
Accessories: school bag.


Skeleton guy:
He has seen one too many pirates movies, and thinks skeletons are super cool. He wears his skeleton costume as often as he can, and goes to all costume parties he can find. He once found a real bone (he thinks it's human, but it's probably not) and he carries it around everywhere.
Accessories: bone

Druid:
Brought here from the past in a time machine, he's a bit confused in this day and age. Misses his forest where he could find herbs for anything.
Accessories: sickle (from brickforge)


Roman citizen:
Well, he's not really a roman citizen, but he dreams himself back to those times. Always walks around in a toga and sandals, and speaks latin fluently. Since he's so familiar with that age, the lost druid from the past has been placed in his care.
Accessories: book

And a picture of the 16 custom figs together:

The Brick Defenders' Brownstone: Under Siege
I would love to see a comic book style superhero (not licensed) theme from the Lego Group. I don't know if such a thing will ever happen, so, in the mean time, here's my entry:

The Lego superheroes band together to form the Brick Defenders! Together they defend Lego City from the evil ways of their arch nemeses, the evil Dark (Ages) Horde!

The Dark Horde, a terrifying team-up of all the Lego evil-doers, descend upon the Brick Defenders brownstone to destroy all that is good and right!

The Brick Defenders quickly spring into action to defend their home.

Posted Image
The Brick Defenders' Brownstone: Under Siege!

Posted Image
The Brick Defenders HQ is a historic brownstone building in an old neighborhood of Lego City

Posted Image
Inside the Brick Defenders' brownstone. Top floor is the meeting room, first floor is a trophy room where the team houses confiscated items such as freeze rays, shrink rays, etc. as well as capes and masks of retired team members.

Posted Image
An underground service tunnel -- these two are breaking in to the Brick Defenders HQ from below!

Posted Image

The heroes are in the back row. They are (from left to right):

Shield Maiden: After gifted a powerful shield from an ancient Valkyrie, Shield Maiden, once just a girl from the burbs, has super-powers that she's just figuring out. Accessories: shield and cape.
Green Lass: Using her arrows to pierce the heart of unjustice, Green Lass fights for the impoverished and the needy. Accessories: Bow and arrows.
Clockwork Cowboy: What is the purpose of a robot programmed to act like a cowboy? In hopes of answering this question, this gunslinger has been searching for his maker ever since his activation. But for now, the answer is: dealing justice. Accessories: two high tech sidearms
Titan: This do-gooder has an unparalleled sense of right. Super-strong with the power of flight, he doesn't need any accessories to thwart evil.
Amon: Once he was the captain of the Pharoah's guard, then he was displaced in time by a traitorous sorcerer. However, magic affects people in unexpected ways; in his new winged form he has the ability to command the wind! Accessories: Broadsword and wings
Amaunet: Her search for her lost love, Amon, has lead her to be reunited with him in the 21st century. The power of the river Nile grants her the ability to manipulate water. Accessories: Water 'blade' and staff
White Knight: His mechanized armor grants him inhuman strength and invulnerability. Accessories: power armor and two swords
Blue Shade: Daughter to super bad Iron Mask and twin of Maven, Blue Shade grew up in the shadow of pure villainous evil. Having escaped the hook of her father, Blue Shade now utilizes her dark skills to fight evil. Accessories: Cape, hood, and bat.

In the front row are the villains (from left to right):

Charmer: Her beauty alone stuns even the most reluctant man - the perfect amount of time for her pet to slither around her enemies. Accessories: snake.
Nightmare: And you thought the discount-rate birthday party clown was scary. Accessories: Flamethrowing clown horn
Slay: Skilled in martial arts of all types, Slay can take on any adversary single handedly. She just chooses to use knives for the fun of it. Accessories: Two knives and ninja mask.
Iron Mask: He wears an iron mask to hide his terrifying face. The only thing that matches his intelligence is his ego. His cunning is accessory enough for him.
Evil Eye: No one can escape the clutches (or visage) of Evil Eye and he uses his superpowers to prey on the needy, helpless, and powerful. His love of scorpions is only matched by his want of world domination. Accessories: cape and scorpion.
Ape Escape: No prison (or zoo!) can hold this super intelligent ape; no amount of security can keep him in or, in this case, out. Accessories: pistol
Maven: As the daughter to Lego Land's number one evil villain, Iron Mask, Maven has a lot to live up to. She uses her kick-butt fighting skills honed as a child to tear down anything good, including (and especially) her twin sister, Blue Shade. Accessories: Flail
The Jester: This deranged merry-maker thinks that crime is fun and games. Accessories: Giant sized robotic toy teeth

Ranking the Stars!

Background story:
This entry is inspired by the kitsch television series "Ranking the Stars".  It is originally a Japanese format whereby some 10 'celebrities' or 'stars' have to try to estimate correctly how the public ranked them on questions such as 'who would most likely swim naked in a public pool'.  

The format was copied in the Netherlands and Belgium and was quite popular - at least in the Netherlands.  It is overall very trashy and the contestants are more often has-beens or never-was than actual stars, which gave me the excellent excuse to go all-out on this one.

A fragment of the show can be found here: Ranking the stars (where one contestant shocks the others by peeing in a glass of water - yes it is really a 'high quality' show...)

Overall shot of the setting

Posted Image

As you can see, this MOC tells the story of the final episode where one of the stars wins the trophy and gets to splash some champagne.  Some of the five other contestants are angry that they did not win.  

In the background one contestant even throws her glas of red wine on the brand new outfit of her neighbour.  I created an area for an angry mob to be included.  It rests on white and gold bricks to give it a more circus-ish feel.  The family a.k.a. angry mob has buckets filled with rotten tomatoes (which they are throwing at the contestants).  

A final story line involves a robber suddenly storming on stage.  The security guard is ready to jump in.


The crowd

Figures included in the series:


Posted Image

1. Presenter (with micro and trophy) - 2. Security guard (with uzi and stick) - 3. The robber (with tommy gun) - 4. Angry contestant Kelly (with glas of red wine)


Posted Image

5. Poor Patsy (with her radio) -  6. Random drunk with bottle (guess they were unable to find other contestants  :laugh:) - 7. Tommy the old rocker (with mascara face and banana of which he believes it keeps him young) - 8. Fred the pop star (with mushroom - I'd like to stress that this is an ordinary mushroom).


Posted Image

9. The angry dad (with bucket and tomato) - 10. The angry mother (with bucket and tomato) - 11. The happy kid (with sausage) - 12. The winner (with cork and champagne)


The final batch of minifigs can be found in my brickshelf folder (when public): http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=475788
The folder also contains pictures of the setting without the figs - which allows a better look at the 'stars'.


It includes the crew: 13. The camera woman (with camera) - 14. The happy technician (with walkie talkie) - 15. The bored technician (with cup of coffee) - 16. Cleaner (with cleaning accessories)

At first, my apologies for the low quality pics, it's quite last minute.. The pictures don't do justice to the build.
But the build was more than lovely, I just love creating minifigs.

Posted Image

The story: All minifigs from different era's landed somehow on a beach together. Their change to survival was quite small, the only way they could survive (or at least do things they like or are supposed to do) was by working together. So that's what happened.

Posted Image

Here you can see all the layers of earth that lie beneath the island. The miner is digging a hole in search for minerals, while the Nobel-award winner, who gained the price for inventing tnt, joins and provides dynamite. The archaeologist benefits from this extraction in search for bones and other interesting objects. The job of the scavenger is to clean all the mess on the island, but I think he takes away to much 'garbage'.

At the same time, the cyclops and the cosplayer are in hunt for food with their massive weapons. They found a fresh monkey and go for a chase. But beware of monkey friend Tarzan! The carpenter stokes the fire, while the rebel screams to the fire to burn. (We all know the song 'Burn mother..)

Near the water asks the princess for help, by just smiling lovely to the see in hope someone comes to the rescue. The water skier takes faith in her own hands by riding a fish to bring her to mainland. The pimp just ordered a pizza, those pizza boys deliver everywhere, if you pay the price. But make it a fair trade.

Finally the bad boys: a thief, who initially escaped Guantanamo Bay, found himself being trapped to a stone with handcuffs. The space pirate now fights the final battle for the title 'Ultimate Bad boy' with a short legged, but oh so fearful Western villain.

Posted Image
Thief - handcuffs
Rebel - megaphone
Scavenger - trash picker / container
Cosplayer - longsword

Posted Image
Water skier - water skies / swim suit
PIMP - suitcase with dollar bill
Miner - drill
Tarzan - monkey

Posted Image
Western villain - two guns
Cyclops - wooden club
Archaeologist - brush / skull
Carpenter - wood / hammer

Please click here to see the last four minifigs

OK, here's my entry. Please note that any similarities to other entered minifigs or scenes are purely coincidental.

The Deep Sea Diver strange worlds of a different kind: The ocean floor! With his antique diving suit, he dives to depths that no minifig has gone to before! But despite his love for diving, he is under the constant fear of his air pump failing or encountering a hungry shark. Comes with a harpoon.

The Matador is a daredevil who is not afraid any bull! All the minifigs come to see him face off against these mighty animals in the arena! Comes with a red cape.

The Genius is a master of all sciences and knows about everything! Every day he comes up with new inventions and theories. Comes with a sextant and chemistry book.
