Insect Collection . This is the collection of 10 parts from the "Creepy Crawly" category for the MOCathalon 2013 So after building one bug... there was just no stopping, and this is the end result! . MOCathalon 2013 Group: Clutch Builders Category: "Creepy Crawlies" A panorama view Walking Stick (Phasmatidae) As an Environmental Scientist, this was one of the hardes bugs I ever found... Not this one literally, but you know what I mean. There seems to be no hunting for these... you just stumble across them. :) (Phylliidae, Anisoptera, Pieris) Praying Mantis (Mantidae) The praying mantis was one of the first and most iconic bugs we wanted to include in our creation for the MOCathalon. Deriving inspiration from people like Dr. Mobius, and others we had lots of fun creating this beautiful bug in bricks. Purple Flora Butterfly (Nymphalidae) Inspiration for this butterfly was taken from Rook. We decided to change the body and wings slightly, but he developed the great whip technique Black Wolf Spider (Lycosidae) Did you know the average human swallows 8 spiders a year in their sleep? Yeah wolf spiders invade our house... they are creepy and we dont like them. :P Black Millipede (Diplopoda) Throw in a hand for scale :) Hornet (Vespidae) Hornets!! Eeeee... these always end up more scary than when you first start building them. Also check out our even larger hornets riders for a more fantasy approach. Burying Beetle (Silphidae) This burying beetle uses various pieces, including bionicle for the abdomen, and lego polybags for the folded wings. Lots of inspiration was taken from various builders as battle bugs and lego insects have often been explored. I tried to tag a few key people in the evolution and inspiration of our lego bugs Doctor Mobius, Lino M, ROOK, and Sir Nadroj. Thanks so much for paving the way! If you are a Lego bug fan, take some time to check out their photostreams!
