MOC: Lego Animals
Posted 09 June 2012 - 02:49 AM
I recently started creating my own renditions of what Lego animals could look like. This has been so enjoyable that I thought I would share it with the world.
I can only imagine how amazing the world of Lego would be if these critters were to be created.
From the beginning I wanted to show what an entire family unit could look like.
I wanted to make them as close to a real Lego animal as possible, So I made all the adult critters have moving parts.
The babies were so small, that I modeled them in the same style as the dog, with no moving parts.
The first set I created was the family of Deer.
I then moved on and created some Elk:
Staying in the same family line I then created some Moose:
I decided to take a break from the hoof clan and started working on some soft paws.
The first family of soft paws I tackled was the Cheetah:
I then hopped down under and created some Kangaroos:
This is an ongoing project for me and I am currently working on some Lions, and then I plan to do some tigers. I will post updates as I get them finished.
I have a nice list of critters to follow the Tigers, so stay tuned to see where this project ends up. It should be a fun ride
I am also toying with the idea of modifying some of the bigger critters so they can wear saddles. Such as the deer, the elk, and moose.
I am creating the male lion so he is able to wear a saddle, and I plan on making the tiger able to wear a saddle as well.
Just imagine an army of warriors riding into battle on tigers. Oh yeah!
I think many of you can understand how nice it would be to have more Lego Animals.
If you are in agreement with me and you want to let Lego know you want to see more Lego animals created, you can support this project on Cuusoo:
Cuusoo: Wild Encounters
This is a continuing work in progress and I will be updating the project as I get more critters done.
I have a flickr location that I am stashing the images for this project. I will be adding images to that location as I get the critters finished up.

Thank you for your time, and I hope you enjoy the pictures.

I have finished up the Lions and would like to share them with you at this time:
I made the Male lion so he could wear a saddle. Here is my scale figure riding the Lion:
I can only begin to imagine the cool MOCs an animal like this could help create

I really wish all these animals were real ... a LEGO City Zoo subtheme?

I think two baisc moulds could be enough for the big big cats; 1 for smaller ones (cheetahs, leopards, pumas), one for larger species (lionesses, tigers, jaguars), with a mane for male lions. They would simply be differentiated by color and coat patterns. And why not, a universul cub mould.
Im waiting to see what youve got coming next!

I love the idea, and hope that Lego takes this one to heart. Seems perfect for them.

As awesome as that sounds I think the cost for molds would be prohibitive in this case

I have been hoping for a zoo / circus theme for ages!
Any chance you could have a crack at doing another elephant? Asian and African? I'm not a huge fan of the last style especially the way the trunk is positioned!

Here are the Orange Tigers:
Here are the White Tigers:
I could not resist, so I went ahead and made the adult tigers able to wear saddles:
I also wanted to say again how much I appreceate all the support and the comments. I am hoping to make some changes based on the various comments I have read. It just comes down to time
