Lego Cow MOC Step 1

Step 1. Start by building the legs. Stack the White Cones onto the Black Round Plates, and the White Round Brick Open Studs onto the Cones.

Step 2. Stack the Light Purple (Pink) Round Plates into pairs, and attached them to the base of the 2X4 Plate, behind the middle studs. Attach the legs to each corner of the base of the Plate.

Step 3. Connect the two Black 1X2 Plates together and connect a White 1X2 Plate on top, making a 1X2 Brick. Attach the White 1X2 Brick to the front of the previous 2X4 Plate, followed by the Black 1X2 Brick, then the combined 1X2 Plates, and attach the other White 1X2 Plate to the back.

Step 5. Attach the other White 2X3 Plate over the front 2 studs, followed by the 1X2 Tile and then the 2X2 Tile (you can use a White 2X3 Tile, instead of these 2 Tiles, if you have one).

Step 6. Now we’ll start building the face. Attach the Light Purple (Pink) 1X2 Brick to the front of the 2X3 Plate, followed by the White 1X1 Brick on the left middle stud, and the Black 1X1 Brick behind on the last left stud. Attach the White 1X2 Brick onto the other Plate studs.

Step 7. Connect the eyes onto the White and Black Modified 1X1 Bricks with Studs. Attach these to the middle studs, with the White on the left and Black on the Right. Attach the White 1X2 Brick to the back.

Step 8. Attach the Brick Yellow Round Plates over the eye bricks as the horns, and the Black Curved 4X1 Double Slope over the back 1X2 Brick for the ears.

Lego Cow Instructions Step 9

Step 9. Finally, turning the cow around, connect the White Modified 1X2 Plate with centre Stud to the Black Curved 2X1 Slope piece, so that the White piece tucks into the nook of the curved piece, and attach this to the studs at the back of the cow.
