Another giant dinosaur, minimalized to extremes. Here’s a scaled down version of Diplodocus, a beast with a small head as opposed to his extra long neck and tail. I wanted his tail to be lifted from the ground and therefore used two thin 2×4 bricks and slightly moved them apart from each other. You can use a 2×2 brick instead a rare 2×3 brick.
I already published a more sophisticated version of this dinosaur. This time I tried my best to keep it very minimalistic. Outcome is the silhouette made out of 7 Lego Duplo bricks, with visible and easily recognizable arms, legs, tail and head. I spent a lot of time trying to incorporate arms in a way to not stand out that much – as you know Tyrannosaurus has very small arms. I had to use a different color for the legs thought, as I ran out of matching colors. On the other hand I purposefully used a different color for mouth piece.
I finally made a smaller sized carnivore teropod, this time a Dromaeosaurus. It really gets harder to capture nuances with so simple bricks, it’s made of 12. However, it still has visible legs, mouth, tail and small hands.
An “earth lizard”, known as Edaphosaurus had a giant sail along his back. Even the scientist are unsure about its function. Maybe I went over the top with it’s giant teeth, but it looks great to me this way.
Four legged creature, famous by its elongated spikes on the back. It’s name, however, represents “two shapes of tooth” in reference to sets of both small and large teeth.
Amphibian dinosaur, named as “fish roof” (Greek). Its skull may not’ve been as large as of my Duplo reproduction one, but it surely was an evil looking beast.
Another one of armored beasts, hammer-tailed Euoplocephalus. In reality looking much like already featured Ankylosaurus, however, I tried a different aproach to make some difference between them.
Heavily armored body and massive bony tail – a tank in dinosaur form! Armored stuff this time captured in brown color. Despite its looks, he was herbivorous.
This one was a large, bus-sized and heavily covered roof lizard. Its distinctive plates on top could turn red, embellishing the visual threat display in times of threat (caused by blood rushing into the plates). Orange color for the armoury on this beast!
Triceratops – with its three horns being one of the most recognizable and popular of all dinosaurs. Three horns make it pretty hard to handle with Duplo’s, however, here is my take on this horned creature.
This legendary spine lizard was among the largest “meat-eaters” on the planet ever. His skull was long and narrow, reminiscent of a much more familiar and still existing crocodile.
Bellow you will find a quick video tutorial to build this beast for yourself.
Brachiosaurus; this huge, long-necked vegetarian beast is somehow hard to capture. There are no earth shattering details, only one clean and simple build.
