1. The Blues Mobile By Kai Einfieldt

The Blues Mobile By Kai Einfieldt

 

Description (From The LEGO Ideas Website):

In 1980 Universal released “The Blues Brothers” featuring John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd and many famous musicians and other famous actors including John Candy. It has now since then become a cult classic.

The movie is a tale of redemption for Jake Blues and his brother Elwood Blues, who take on “a mission from God” to save the Catholic orphanage in which they grew up from closing down. To do so they must reunite their band “The Blues Brothers Band” and organize a concert to get the $5,000 to pay the tax assessor Steven Spielberg.

For reference I took some photos from the movie-DVD on my flat screen with my smartphone to design as true to the movie as possible in LEGO.

The scale of the Blues Mobile compares to the LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto One.

3. Quest Builder By Ymarilego

Quest Builder By Ymarilego

 

Description (From The LEGO Ideas Website):

I am glad you found your way to this fantasy set with a multitude of options. Three brave heroes await your story. No one knows what adventures they will have, no one know what dangers or monsters they will encounter on their journeys and quests.

Are they on a treasure hunt? Are they on a quest to eliminate the evil bonelord or are they simply curious and want to unravel the mysteries of an abandoned keep. No one knows what lies hidden in the forgotten rooms. No one knows how far the cellars extend into the lower layers of the earth. No one knows, except YOU, Quest Builder!

With this set you can create your own dungeons and lairs for the heroes to investigate. There are dozens of possible layouts and setups. You can place the rooms in any sequence desired to create the lair you like.

Six minifigures of different monsters/villains can be placed in your dungeon for you heroes to combat. There are also several smaller creatures already in the rooms that can of course be placed where desired.

4. Red Arrows Hawk By M4 CUS

Red Arrows Hawk By M4 CUS

 

Description (From The LEGO Ideas Website):

One of the world’s premier aerobatic teams, the Red Arrows display to millions of people every year.

The Squadron’s famous for performing dynamic loops, rolls, close passes and formation shapes with its nine fast-jets – flying as close as six feet apart at 350mph.

Officially known as the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows promote the best of British and inspire people of all ages with their teamwork and skills.

Flying distinctive Hawk jets, the team is the public face of the RAF and represent speed, agility and precision.

The Red Arrows is made up of highly-trained pilots, engineers and essential support staff.

The team has been performing since 1965 and, to date, displayed in 57 countries and appeared at major international occasions, such as the 2012 London Olympic Games.

For this LEGO Ideas submission, we have captured the passion and excitement of the Red Arrows and constructed the iconic BAE Systems Hawk T1 aircraft (powered by a Rolls-Royce engine) out of LEGO parts.

Not only does this proposed Red Arrows Hawk LEGO model have functioning components (retractable undercarriage and opening cockpit canopy), it includes both a pilot and engineer minifigure (each wearing their iconic red and blue flying suits).

This lifelike creation, inspired by LEGO Designer Mike Psiaki’s amazing sets, will provide LEGO fans of all ages with a fantastic building experience and endless hours of enjoyment!

5. Venetian Houses By McMarco

Venetian Houses By McMarco

 

Description (From The LEGO Ideas Website):

This double modular size model comes with two wonderful Mediterranean buildings. Both houses are dedicated to various cultural activities.

The set adds a southern flair to every LEGO building collection. As a longtime fan of Venice I could not resist to add a picturesque bridge, a typical water canal and, of course, a gondola. And it could be the first modular set on shelves with direct access to the sea!

6. Jeep Wrangler Rubicon By CK80

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon By CK80

 

Description (From The LEGO Ideas Website):

Here is probably one of, if not the most, iconic off-road vehicle in the automakers’ lineup, Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. Based on its unique design ques such as the seven-slotted front grill, bold protruding mudguards, beautifully curved hood with clearly stamped letters, and rounded top frames, huge number of variations have been developed by Wrangler manias over time.

The most difficult part of the construction was to join the hood and the two mudguards. I was stuck on this part for a couple of weeks, struggling to combine a slightly tilted hood module with 1x3x2 arch bricks and mudguard modules with angled technic beams. Though I have successfully managed to integrate them seamlessly as shown in the pictures after a series of attempts, better ways of joining these parts together must be sought out for more perfection.

The size is in the same ratio with official LEGO packages such as VW Camper Van, Beetles, and BMW Mini. Four 62mm radius tires are installed on its front and back axis, and a spare is hung on the hatch door. The roof can be easily mounted by gently putting the separable cover on the top frame, and it will be supported by the frame and held by two studs. Lastly, the engine part (provides no power) is placed under the hood.

7. NBC’s The Office By LEGO The Office

NBC’s The Office By LEGO The Office

 

Description (From The LEGO Ideas Website):

This LEGO proposal is based on NBC’s The Office, America’s quintessential workplace comedy developed by Greg Daniels and based on the original Office from the UK, which was created by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.

The set represents the Dunder Mifflin office located in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the main location for nine seasons of hilarious hijinks and memories. As a long-time fan, I pretty much have every line from the show memorized but despite that it can always make me laugh or brighten my day. I think like a lot of people, I found myself relating to the crazy situations the characters got into. Since I am a huge Lego fan, I was sad there was never a set for such an amazing show so I built one for myself.

This set is comprised of the main office space (e.g. – Reception, the Sales Team, Accounting), Michael’s office, the Conference Room and Darryl’s office. Each of the rooms is designed to be modular, so they can be connected together easily or separated. There are also a lot of details for longtime office fans who want to recreate their favorite episodes or make new ones.

The mini-figs include Michael, Jim, Pam, Dwight, Erin, Andy, Phyllis, Stanley, Kelly, Toby, Darryl, Creed, Meredith, Angela and Kevin.

10. Surf Rescue By LegoSurfRescue

Surf Rescue By LegoSurfRescue

 

Description (From The LEGO Ideas Website):

The Surf Rescue set is inspired by the volunteer surf lifesaving movement that started in Australia over 100 years ago and which has spread around the world.

The set is designed to capture the fun of the beach as well as its risks, including the risk of overexposure to the sun. Hence the four Surf Rescuers we’ve designed all wear sunscreen, which we think would be a first for LEGO.

11. Medieval Watermill By FishingTwister

Medieval Watermill By FishingTwister

 

Description (From The LEGO Ideas Website):

With winter fast arriving, this medieval watermill is very important for the village community. Everyone who lives in the upper level of the watermill must pitch in to keep the mill going. Producing flour was a full time trade for the family.

Includes 3 minifigures; a mom, dad, and son.

There is a power functions battery box geared down to 1/5th normal speed with a medium motor all hidden inside and connected to the watermill that actually moves at a normal pace. This model would be ideal as a display piece for adults/teenager collectors or to add to an entire medieval village with other buildings such as cottages, blacksmith shop, tavern, church, castle, etc. I tried to include many details throughout while limiting the landscape for a more realistic piece count.

It was a fun challenge building this dilapidated watermill with a caved in roof and rickety old staircase. I used several different build techniques to get the desired look. Although it appears fragile, the build is very stable and can be played with.
