Does anyone remember Lego Universe? The game where you can play with your friends, explore the various areas and defeat the evil Maelstrom? Well much like you, I played it and had lots of fun playing it. One of the aspects of it that I really liked were the various pets you can get. A few of them were The Elephant, Reindeer, and a Bunny.
I have been building those pets of my Lego pieces for a time now, but I'm not here to show you those pets. I'm here to show you the custom pets that I made myself. All of these pets are within the Lego Universe style and I made sure that they were.
The first pet you'll see is a Grey Wolf. I used dark grey, light grey, black, and white pieces to help get the look of the Grey Wolf as that species of wolf has those three colors. The head can be moved up and down, the legs can be moved back and forth, and the tail can go up and down.
The second pet is a Badger. I looked up a picture of a Badger to help me get the right look. It's not meant to be a Honey Badger. It's just an average Badger. It's mainly grey for the body with some black and white on the head. For articulation, the head can be moved up and down and side-to-side, the legs can be moved back and forth, and the tail can be moved up and down.
The third pet you'll see is a Rhino. Much like Rhinos, this pet is light grey with a piece in white to help represent the horns. Its head can be moved down to charge at anyone or anything, the legs can be moved back and forth, and the tail can be moved up and down.
After the Rhino is The Donkey. The Donkey is mainly light grey with a little bit of black and white to add some details. For articulation, the head can be moved up and down and side-to-side, the legs can be moved back and forth, and the tail can slightly move up and down.
For the fifth pet, I thought about making a fantasy pet and made a Phoenix. It's one of the more iconic fantasy creatures that people would think of. I used red, orange, and yellow pieces to help achieve that fire look to the bird. The head can be moved up and down and side-to-side, the wings can be folded in-and-out, the legs have slight movement, and the tail can be moved up and down. (The stand is just there to show the Phoenix in flight mode. It wouldnt come with the set if my idea becomes a set).
After the Phoenix is The Raven. I was trying to think of what other birds I could make and a Raven came to mind. Ravens are mainly black, so I used black pieces to make it. The Raven has the same articulation as The Phoenix.
The next pet is The Raccoon. Who doesnt love raccoons? Yes it's bad when they go through trash, but they do need to survive somehow. The head may appear a bit big, but I feel that it works for the Lego Universe style. Raccoons are mainly grey with some black on their face, legs, and tail. I did my best to make it look like a Raccoon. The head can be moved up and down, the legs can be moved back and forth, and the tail can be moved up and down.
After the Raccoon is The Black Bear. The Black Bear has a similar head design as the Raccoon, but a couple of pieces were changed and the build is slightly different. Black Bears are mainly black, so black pieces were used. The Black Bear has the same articulation as the Raccoon.
Nearing the end, I made two bats. The first one is The Bat, which is based on bats that you'll see in cartoons. I made it all black as usually bats within cartoons are either completely black, or mainly black. The head can be moved up and down and turn side-to-side, the wings can be folded in-and-out, and the legs can be moved back and forth.
The final pet is The Flying Fox, which is a species of bat that eats fruit. I wanted to incorporate some orange as that particular bat species has orange fur. The articulation for The Flying Fox is the exact same as the previous bat pet.
All of these pets are my ideas. I just decided to make more pets that would be in the Lego Universe style. If Lego Universe was still being played, I could easily see these pets in the game somewhere. With these pets, you can use them as pets for your minifigures, or even use them in a zoo if you wanted to.
This is my first Lego Idea that I'm submitting and I hope it goes far. Please feel free on how I can improve for any future ideas I present. Thank you all for reading.
