DIY LEGO Angel Moroni

In all of our current temple designs we are using a yellow Microfig (LEGO® ID 85863). This piece can be hard to find. I was recently contacted by Steve Jensen who shared with me his wife’s design for an Angel Moroni. I found it clever and got his permission to post it here.

Also, check out Steve’s Etsy store that has some pretty awesome temple designs: S & S Bricks

AlternateAngelMoroniIt consists of a yellow cone underneath a yellow round plate underneath a yellow lever.  He informed me that you can’t buy an all yellow lever so you will need to buy a yellow lever and a yellow base separately.


Where to Buy

Do you have an instruction manual but you need to buy pieces? This guide will help you. There are several places where you can buy bricks and they each have their own advantages and disadvantages.

In all Temple Bricks instruction manuals there is a “bill of materials” which lists all of the parts needed for the set. Each part has a picture, the amount needed notated like “x24” meaning there are 24 of that particular piece and an ID number like 3002 which is used for finding the piece to buy.

Brick Link

Brick link is a website where anybody can list pieces they have for sale. It’s a lot like Ebay where you have different sellers with different ratings. Pieces are listed from all over the world so there is a vast supply of all pieces, shapes, sizes, and colors.

Pros: Cheapest place to find bricks! Huge variety of different shapes, sizes, and colors.

Cons: Parts are listed from many different sellers. Shipping parts from different sellers eats away at the cost savings. Site isn’t user-friendly.

How to buy: There are a couple ways you can get pieces on Brick Link. The easiest is to just do a search by the ID number and find whomever has the cheapest but because you may pay a lot in shipping from many places another option is to create a wish list and add all the parts to it. From the wish list you can view who has the most pieces you’re looking for. Another option that we haven’t tried yet is Brick Wizard. It’s supposedly an application that will figure out the absolute cheapest way to order the parts you need off of Brick link.


You are probably familiar with Ebay so there isn’t much to say about it. You can look for pieces by bulk lots with color or you can look for individual parts by ID number.

Pros: Pretty cheap prices. Great place to buy in bulk.

Cons: Usually you can’t pick which pieces you get. Less variety of pieces.

How to buy: Go to Ebay and either search for the ID number or find random bulk lots with the color you want and you may or may not get the pieces you want.

LEGO has an online shop where you can buy individual pieces. It’s more expensive than the first two options but you’ll get high quality brand new pieces. Note: Sometimes pieces get discontinued from LEGO and they may not have available all the pieces you need.

Pros: All brand-new pieces. Good selection of pieces/colors.

Cons: Expensive.

How to buy: Go to LEGO and enter the ID number into the “Design ID” search box toward the lower-left and it will bring up the pieces you need.

Pick-a-brick Wall

Local LEGO stores and other toy/hobby stores may have a “Pick-a-brick” wall where you can buy individual pieces. You’ll have to do a web search to see if there are any near you.

Pros: Buy pieces immediately. No shipping costs.

Cons: Expensive. Less variety.

Latest Updates

It’s been a while since we’ve updated the site. I want everyone to know we’re still hard at work to get a high quality kit manufactured.

Update on Collector’s Editions

Our current plan is to produce the Collector’s Edition models as actual sets which would include the bricks. They are about 2,500 pieces each and would retail at about $100. We have the Mount Timpanogos temple only a couple months away from production! We’ve finished the design and our ordering the pieces for a prototype. Once the prototype is finished we plan on raising money for manufacturing. Stay tuned!

Update on Small Models

We’re having trouble producing the stickers at a reasonable rate. Our current estimates would be that adding the few stickers would double the price of the instruction manuals. We plan shortly to start releasing the instruction manuals in PDF on our site and in printed form on Amazon. We’ll let you know!

Pardon our dust!

You may notice our site design is still under development. Please bear with us as we finish our site! Check back frequently for updates on our designs. We are currently in talks with a manufacturer to have these sets built. Hopefully, you’re as excited as we are!
