LEGO Dungeons & Dragons — The Beholder

The14533811794_d43e932097_k Beholder is one of the most iconic (do you see what I did there?) monsters in Dungeons and Drag­ons. Essen­tially it’s a giant float­ing eyeball with a big mouth and a bunch of tenta­cles (also with little eyes) attached to it.

It was first intro­duced to D&D all the way back in the Grey­hawk expan­sion in 1975 and unlike so many of the early monsters it is actu­ally a D&D orig­i­nal, not some­thing that was inspired by a book or movie or fairy­tale. It’s a well known enough monster that it even got three computer games named after it.

But I don’t think it’s ever been cute before. Not until Guy H. produced this LEGO version of a Beholder using the LEGO Mixel range anyway.
