In the spirit of The LEGO Movie a new section has been added to The LEGO Movie website that I hope we will see more of; downloadable alternate instructions for official LEGO sets! There are six models included, combining sets from different LEGO themes. They are creative, imaginative and really fun! Check them out below! 🙂
The model I like the most is the Ice-Cream Cruiser that combines the #30300 LEGO Master Builder Academy Space Designer set, and the #70804 The LEGO Movie Ice Cream Machine.
My second favorite is the Lion Claw Mark VIII, an awesome vehicle for Laval combining the #31017 LEGO Creator Sunset Speeder and the #70123 LEGO Legends of Chima Lion Legend Beast.
Eris also gets a new ride in the Raptor Rally Bike by combining the #31022 LEGO Creator Turbo Quad and the #70124 LEGO Legends of Chima Eagle Legend Beast.
A couple of Ninjago sets also get a makeover (I like how LEGO designers used sets that kids likely already have in their collection). The Termo-Bolt Fire Flyer combines the #60061 LEGO City Airport Fire Truck and the #70721 LEGO Ninjago Kai Fighter.
The other Ninjago sets that gets transformed is the #70723 LEGO Ninjago Thunder Raider, which, combined with the #60056 LEGO City Tow Truck, becomes the Hydro-Turbo Sky-Ray (cool name!).
There is also one more downloadable instruction, building a Dimensional Portal Machine for Emmet, which is not a combination of any sets, but you can build them from pieces of your LEGO collection (it is quite small with common parts, so you should have no trouble putting it together).
LEGO has been criticized by some people for not providing enough alternate instructions and ideas for LEGO sets as they have done in the past. These downloadable instructions appear to be bringing back that feature and I hope there will be more. You can download the instructions for all six models from LEGO’s website at the following link: LEGO CREATE & COMBINE MODELS
What do you think? How do you like these alternate LEGO models? Are you planning to build any of them? Which one is your favorite? Did you ever try combining different LEGO sets yourself? Feel free to share in the comment section below! 😉

They look cool. I like the Ice Cream Cruiser. But I have the Kai Fighter, and my brothers have the Thunder Raider, and we plan to get the Tow Truck and the Airport Fire Truck, so we could build a few of these. 🙂
But where did you find these admin? I just checked the TLM website and didn’t see them anywhere. 😕
Also I finished building the Flying Flusher! It’s a great set! 😀
Just follow the link in the post. It will take you right there where you can download the instructions. And here it is again for your convenience: http://www.lego.com/en-us/movie/explore/downloads/create-and-combine/guide-1
OK, thanks! I see where they are now, they’re just under the Downloads section, and I did not look there. 😉 🙂
Amazing combinations, I really like the thunder raider one, that’s a work of art
*droooooolll* those are so cooooolllll!!!
I wonder what was the choice for including an MBA-based build. I thought MBA was a rather poor seller, and besides, it wasn’t available outside the US.
Hakan, my understanding is that the MBA sets are doing just fine. Especially the first kit. I actually own all of the MBA sets and I think it is one of the best things LEGO has ever made. I’m not sure why LEGO is not marketing it anywhere else. Even in the USA marketing them is quite luke-warm. They are advertised in the LEGO sales catalogs, available at LEGO stores and the online LEGO shop, but LEGO retailers (like Wal-Mart, Target, etc.) don’t carry them.
The kits went through quite a few changes, so perhaps LEGO is still in the experimenting phase with these before releasing them to a wider market. Originally it was a subscription based program and you got one kit every few months. The the kits got bundled, boxed and sold as sets. Then the boxes were redesigned and also more minifigures have been added. It is quite interesting to follow the changes, but the bottom line is that the first kit (used in the combiner model) is the most popular in the MBA series.
Alright, thanks. My impression was that it hadn’t even been selling that well in the US, but I might have been mistaken.
I might check it out if it reaches Sweden and doesn’t pass the 1 SEK/piece threshold.
Speaking of the LEGO movie, I’m learning how to play “Everything is Awesome!” on the piano. 😛
:0 😀 :roll Just trying out some smilies! 😛
Oh yeah, and has anyone besides me noticed that the Lion Claw Mark VIII is the cheapest one to make, at $23?
