    W.A.B.B.I.T stands for : Weaponized- Armored- Battle- Breaker- Infantry- Taskforce. These MECHs were the pinnacle of the Critter Wars. Highly mobile and agile construct. Their speed is unmatched on the battlefield. They fit both in the role of scout and infantry. The unit main weapon: The C4rr-0T Assault Rifle. The aim is deadly precise. They can be equipped with an E.G.G. (Explosive-Grenade-Gear) for much more havoc.
  2. Chicken Suit Guy relaxes in a modified version of set 40292. Happy Easter everyone! Chicken Suit Guy takes a break! by Loslyn Loslyn, on Flickr
  3. Since this year Easter is almost cancelled, I decided to use Easter related minifigures to illustrate proverb known in many European countries: Where two are fighting, the third wins.
  4. Isn't this too early for Easter? I am not egg-sactly sure why. Perhaps, this hard working Easter Bunny Girl wants to paint as many eggs possible before Easter. So, let's make this quick. Hop onto my 30th RA review, set #853990 - Easter Bunny House. Overview Name: 853990 - Easter Bunny House Theme: Seasonal Year: 2019 (1H) Pieces: 57 Minifigures: 1 Price: GBP 6.99 / USD 7.99 / EUR 7.99 / MYR 39.90 Introduction It seems that TLG is switching things up a little bit with the new seasonal sets this year. This set is not a free gift with purchase. Instead, it is just a normal set that you can buy from LEGO store. Front view (with sleeve) The packaging for this small set is slightly different from the previous seasonal set, particularly 5005249 Easter Bunny Hut. From the outside, it is seemingly a clamshell box but it is just an octagonal prism packaging which can be opened at the bottom. In addition, it has a yellow paper twine with an egg-shaped tag. This is very handy if you are going to buy this set as a present. Back view (with sleeve) The sleeve is simply held by 2 clear tapes at the back. 3/4 Profile (sleeve removed) Once you remove the sleeve, there is no "door" or tear-off flaps that you can open. It functions like a normal box only. Nothing more, nothing less. You simple open the box flap at the bottom to free the contents inside. In the absence of any other packaging material inside, we get low-density polyethylene plastic bag and super glossy instruction booklet. Build Without being melodramatic, these are the contents of the plastic bag: Front view And in less than 10 minutes you are able to build this 3 little builds: a patch of foliage, a chicken coop and a scooter with 6 "eggs" on an egg tray. Immediately, what caught my attention in this build is the sunny side up printed 1x1 white round tile that serves as the headlight of the scooter. Is it an egg or a light? I think it depends on what you want to imagine. It is not the most creative usage of part but it looks wacky so I like it very much. It's also worth to mention that this is one of the easiest and cheapest way to get medium azure scooter at the moment. As for the most annoying part -- it's the roof. I don't like its construction because the hinges are not resting on any other element. The two red 2x4 tiles end up looking awkward when they don't touch perfectly at the tip. Despite the minimal parts, the chicken coop has a hallow space in the middle which the chicken can use to lay eggs. 3/4 side profile view At this angle you can appreciate the clever use of tan slope 45 1x1 Double as ladder steps for the chicken. What I don't really appreciate is the usage of part # 58176 as white eggs. There are 6 of them at the back of the scooter and I suppose this one of the most reckless way to transport a fragile produce. In the past, other sets use that part as egg, but that was back when the egg mould with hole has not been made yet. Now that there is an actual egg mould, frankly, I don't buy this part as a good substitute for eggs anymore. However, the problem with the egg element (part # 53677) is that it is wider than a single stud so it is impossible to fit 6 eggs in 2x3 stud array. Even if you put 6 of those on a wider plate, you can't present the tray of eggs without being cartoonishly disproportionate to the scooter. I understand the design constrains but it is just absurd that the previous Easter Bunny Hut got a properly printed easter egg while this one has nothing at all. Notice the door at the back? This is a neat little feature because you can open this door to get the eggs laid by the chicken. The space in the middle can hold only 4 'eggs' given the limited space. Minifigures Easter Bunny Girl This Easter Bunny Girl can be paired with the Easter Bunny guy from 5005249 Easter Bunny Hut as they are stylistically similar. The pink ribbon printed on the light aqua torso gives it a mix of "minty" and preppy style. In addition to the prominent bunny teeth, the cutesy minifigure face also has white whiskers that adds more charm to the minifigure. As a side note, the Easter Bunny guy from the Easter Bunny Hut hardly got popular in my opinion. Personally, it was not in my "must have" minifigure list because the original CMF Bunny Suit guy is so much more charismatic, which makes these variants appear redundant. It could be good or bad depending on how many Bunny Suit Guys you already have. So, now that a new Easter Bunny Girl can be paired with the Easter Bunny Guy, I wonder if this will make the older set popular. Something egg-citing is on the way! Conclusion I'm not going to drag this review longer so let me put in summary: Pros: Very collectible Easter Bunny Girl minifigure Interesting parts included medium azure scooter Cons: Unlike the previous seasonal sets, the packaging does not really add value since it is just a hollow box An easter bunny without an actual egg mould (sunny side up doesn't count!) Review summary Playability: 7/10 - For this price point, the playability is reasonable Design / Building Experience: 6 - Can't really say I am satisfied building the chicken coop because on how the roof was designed Minifigures: 8/10 - This makes a great partner with the previous Easter Bunny Guy minifigure from 2018. Price / Value for money: 7/10 - Think of this as an XTRA set + CMF and the pricing makes sense. Overall: 7/10 - It is a cute small set for collectors but I wish it is a dollar cheaper or came with more parts.

    [MOC] Rabbit

    Hello, I would have posted this model much earlier, but I had massive trouble to add the pictures from flickr... Thanks again, for the help! Well, it´s actually a rabbit, not a hare, so maybe the delay doesn´t matter (Easter and stuff...)

    [MOC] Easter Bunny

    Easter themed MOCs are one of my favourites! I haven't build anything specifically for Easter before. For the past few years I wanted to build something like an Easter Bunny, but always when I feel like building a MOC like this the Easter holidays start soon and I am too late to make something. Not this year though! This year I marked the Easter holidays in my agenda and started designing in February. And now I have even got time left before the Easter Holidays! For my first Easter build I just had to build an Easter bunny along with some Easter eggs. The Easter eggs are actually 'easter eggs' themselves... do you recognize the LEGO themes of the two smaller eggs?
  8. Easter bunnies are not so cute... And additional vignettes: Happy Easter and beware of the bunny!
  9. It is with a little delay that I can present our Easter GBC module. This GBC module is an evolution from this old small ring module: (Brickshelf gallery of the old module here: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=569534 ) The module is quite simple. The wheel spins. The anti-jamming mechanism kicks in when needed and there are two inboxes to help place it optimally in a layout. There is a compartment in the base to store fragile objects during transport and the XL motor can easily be replaced: You can also use an M or L motor instead, should you not have an XL motor. The flowers are tulips: A daisy: And a daffodil: The design started with the head of the bunny, where I tried to make it both compact and cute: Brickshelf gallery with more pictures (once public): http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=569534
  10. You thought the life of a young vampire was like Twilight? Think again. Happy Easter! -Cast- Ostea Latrodex - Audrey Bacon Edwin Stokes - Jack Rizzo Harvey - Bentley Michaels Check out the rest of Vampire Town series here! Just a very quick little Easter special, set in the Vampire Town universe. Quite happy with how this turned out, aside from the set (I was away from most of my Lego, so was very limited on bricks), and a few dodgy angles. But I'm happy I got this out on time, and there's more Vampire Town coming very very soon!

  12. Hello, a few wweks ago I made a Bunny-bot, and a few people had been asking for instructions, so I thought I'd put them here incase anyone else is intrested.
  13. INTRODUCTION Ever since January 2015, the mini seasonal sets started to appear in a new format that would appeal to a wider audience. They represent a piece of life in the appropriate season, built on a tiny 8x8 vignette. Usually these sets include some interesting parts or rare colors and are jam-packed with cool accessories. This added detail makes them especially attractive to "afol's", "moc" builders and collectors while the older style sets seemed to mostly rely on novelty value and targeted children and the common buyer. So far, they've proven extremely popular. Painting Easter Eggs comes after the Valentines set, and will be followed by Halloween and Thanksgiving accordingly. TECHNICAL: Set Name: Painting Easter Eggs Set Number: 40121 Number of Pieces: 153 Theme: Seasonal Availability: LEGO Exclusive / retail Year Released: 2015 Price: $ 9.99 / € 9.99 Stickers: 0 New elements: 0 Exclusive minifigures: 0 Brickset entry Bricklink Inventory The set consists of 153 pieces, two minifigures and one animal. Most of the pieces are very small so it's advised to build in a controlled environment, (leave your cat in the other room) The box is the smallest available LEGO box after polybags. There is usually a short and simple story printed on the back, in this case the kid dropped one of the eggs on the floor while his mom observes unamused. PARTS SELECTION: The obvious stand out is the white chicken, but there's also a number of cool accessories included; you get a paint brush (plus one extra), a painters palette, a black pot, one green bottle, some cookie tiles and the common mug in red. These vignettes have a habit of including 1x2 bricks in rare and interesting colors, you get 7 masonry 1x2's in dark red and two in dark tan. The 1x1 transparent brick is also infrequent and you get 3 of them, 1 of which is hidden in the build. I believe the bricks representing white eggs were previously seen in Bionicle used for eyeballs, but are pretty cool as eggs, although in Europe our eggs are closer to tan than white. Did I mention the awesome chicken? MINIFIGURES: Two mini figures are included, a child and what is presumably his mother, or sister or whatever you like. We have seen her torso before in many creator and city sets. I am personally not a fan of the blue blouse, but the kid's torso print makes up for it. The cosmonaut t-shirt is fairly uncommon and popular. Both characters have double faces which adds to interactive play features. BUILD: Building is straightforward, The instructions start with the tiny additional plate of grass with the chicken's nest, I guess the chicken isn't allowed in the kitchen. The kitchen is built entirely on a 8x8 base and has a neat tiled floor in a checkered pattern which gives it a great finished look. The appliances and sink are in very lively colors and the dark red masonry forms the outside wall. The cookies are in the oven, the egg is boiling, almost ready for Easter. The espresso machine, transparent oven door and lively green colors give the kitchen a modern-day look, but still very cosy and cute. Almost done, The top shelf is up, the clock is ticking we need to start painting those eggs. There are four different colors of 1x1 round bricks included which represent paint cans. I think it would have been cool to have one or two of those egg pieces in a new color to represent an already painted egg, but the white's are more versatile if you want to use them to stock up a grocery or something, so I am not complaining. And the kitchen is done. I tried to copy the setting that was depicted on the box with the kid smashing one egg on the floor. That smashed egg is a nice piece to use on a plate too. The back view is not lacking in detail, The great color combination and texture of the outside facade could easily work as is, even in it's flat form. The light bright orange window curtains are a nice touch... uh oh, what's that kid up to? Given the size of the set, you get a lot of pieces left over, this is off course due to a lot of small 1x1 pieces. Nice to get an extra paintbrush and cookie. CONCLUSION: I consider myself fairly critical, but there is simply nothing to critique about this set. LEGO always put special effort into staying neutral in regards to race and religion, so depicting Easter may be a slight bend in those principles, but that could be said of almost any seasonal set. It's amazing how much value can be fitted into a tiny box, this set excels at "playability", "collectability" and parts selection, something that is generally hard not to compromise at this scale. I can picture anyone buying this, from an office clerk as his desk ornament to a little kid who wants to interact with the characters. It just has a hugely wide appeal which is probably why they sell out so quickly. If you collected some of the older Creator houses that came with sparse or no interior furnishings, and you are short on "moc-ing" ideas, these seasonal sets could serve as greatly detailed packs to fill the void. Overall Design: 10/10 - There is nothing I can think of, that could have been designed better, nothing falls off nor is clumsy to handle. Parts selection: 10/10 - This set must have skipped the optimization process as no element is spared or recycled. + you get a chicken! Play features: 7/10 - While the set provides sufficient scene for play and plenty accessories, there are no specially added play functions out of the obvious. Challenging build: 6/10 - The build is simple and easy, but far from boring or repetitive. Minifigures: 6/10 - Minifigures are not what makes this set, but from all the generic prints we could get, one of them has the best of the bunch. Price: n/a - I am sorry, but i don't like to comment on price as this varies between countries and individual expectations, but compared to sets of similar size and piece count, sans licence, I consider it good value. Overall: 9/1

    [MOC] Jewelled Egg

    The most famous jewelled eggs are the Fabergé eggs made by Peter Carl Fabergé between 1885 and 1917 for the Russian Tsars Alexander III and Nicholas II. The Tsars presented the eggs as Easter gifts for their wives and mothers. I always liked jewelled eggs, but unfortunately they are just unaffordable (well, the real ones at least...). I just had to make a LEGO version! Like many jewelled eggs, it has a theme and contains a surprise inside: it’s a wedding egg! This egg is dedicated to my dear brother and his wife whom recently got married! Hurray! Do you have something to celebrate as well? Or do you want to give something pretty to your best friend or beloved? (or treat yourself) ... make sure to support this project on LEGO Ideas to turn it into an official LEGO set!

    A sense of Spring

    Spring and especially Easter is just around the corner. Go out for a walk, enjoy the nice weather and watch the flowers blooming. (At least if you life in country where it is spring now ) Can you sense the coming of spring?, on Flickr I hope you like it! C&C welcome! Cheers, Jonas
  16. Name: Painting Easter Eggs Theme: LEGO Year: 2015 Pieces: 153 Pieces Minifigs: 2 minifigures Price: USD $9.99 First the box, these holiday sets are theme-less but honestly it would fit well into Creator. The back shows the vignette's scenario in detail with the kid dropping the egg because he's busy thinking of chickens... The one picture is a bit odd to me, it shows the egg falling AND one already broken on the floor. A chicken for scale, cute. Three bags, two loose plates, and the instructions were well preserved and not excessively bent. No numbers on the bags for the small build. The instructions have a plain baby blue backgrounds that provides great contrast compared to some of the overly busy backgrounds these days. Some of the great parts in this set. 7 dark red masonry bricks are the big standout. These currently sell for upwards of $0.75 so half the price of this set can be represented just in these bricks. The round plate with jumper is a fairly recent and very useful piece. The orange 1x1 round tile may not seem too special but it has only appeared in 6 sets previously. Of course the chicken, classic space themed torso, and painting supplies are all great pieces as well. The first stage of the build is the chicken in the wild with its egg. Simple but a nice way to get the chicken into the set. Here is the base with tiled floor and beginnings of the back wall, the alternating tiles and plates provides a nice flexible base for positioning the figures. Note the cookies in the oven, I also like the simplicity of the "fume hood" represented by a 1x2 cheese slope. The completed back wall, of course it must have a coffee maker. Simple but very evocative of a kitchen scene. The completed vignette! The brown flowers make good egg holds but I kinda wish they'd used the normal 1x1 round with hole as those are more versatile than the flower shape. The leftovers, the brush is the main standout. Playability: 7/10 You can splat the egg, get the cookies out, but in general this is meant for display. Thats not a bad thing in this case. Design: 9/10 Very evocative of a home kitchen with nice parts use throughout. Price: 10/10 Good price per piece though many small pieces, however the unusual parts like red masonry bricks elevate this. Minifigures: 8/10 Good prints, the kids shirt especially. Perfect figs for the scene. Parts: 10/10 Great selection of rare parts for such a small set. Total: 44/50 Colorful and creative build with great parts. Thanks for reading!
