As great as they are, brownstones and storefronts are fairly common LEGO structures built to the “Cafe Corner standard.” That makes this great train station by Johan van den Heuvel (Teddy) that much cooler. I love the columns and the arches of the recessed entryway. The size itself is a first, as far as I Continue reading →
LEGO Modular models on The Brothers Brick | Page 3
LEGO released 10182 Cafe Corner in 2007, setting a new standard for large-scale modular buildings. Since then, LEGO has continued to release new structures in the modular building series — 10190 Market Street, 10185 Green Grocer, 10197 Fire Brigade, 10211 Grand Emporium, 10218 Pet Shop, and 10224 Town Hall as of 2012. Meanwhile, LEGO fans have adopted the “Cafe Corner standard” and built hundreds and hundreds of beautiful buildings that fit with the official sets. See some of the best here on The Brothers Brick.
There’s no doubt that 10182 Cafe Corner will go down in history as a classic. But what would it look like at different point in human history? Crises has the answer.
UPDATE: 10197 Fire Brigade is now available from the LEGO Store online. ————- In news that I strongly suspect reveals the mystery question mark in the 10194 Emerald Night announcement video, LEGO announced 10197 Fire Brigade at LEGO fan events in Germany and Portugal. Here’s the full announcement from The LEGO Group: 10197 – Fire Continue reading →
Run and hide your Cafe Corner, Market Street and Green Grocer! This creepy creation built by Sebastian “Aliencat” Arts will consume all! Side note: haha, take that Nannan, I finally blogged a Black Fantasy creation before you!
BrickCon is just around the corner. In fact, if you don’t register before September 8th, the price goes up to $60 and you won’t be guaranteed personalized stuff like engraved brick badges. My contribution to the LEGO Zombie Apocafest display we’re organizing is an auto repair shop and a fire station in a diorama that Continue reading →
Rocko reveals another LEGO creation he’ll be bringing to BrickCon in a couple of months. This modular building is Rocko’s contribution to our LEGO Zombie Apocafest: Don’t miss Rocko’s Brickshelf gallery for lots more details.
Izzo admits that of the hundreds of LEGO creations he’s posted over the last few years, only a handful haven’t been mecha. As much as we love Izzo’s amazing robots, it’s nice to see him change things up. His latest batch of creations includes a trio of modular buildings. My favorite is this gray building Continue reading →
We certainly love the airplanes that Ralph Savelsberg builds, but he’s recently on a Town kick. His most recent buildings include iconic British buildings — a corner shop and a pub: Here they are together with the rest of Ralph’s buildings and vehicles:
Japanese builder peachtree (Brickshelf) has completed a Café Corner-standard building in a lovely Spanish style: There’s so much to love about this beauty, from the awning, exterior staircase, and window details to the interior, ivy-covered walls, and mottled roof. (Via Brick Town Talk.)
Following up on his delicious Curry House, Ralph Savelsberg adds a purveyer of fish and chips to his modular street: Here they are together:
Whether it’s the World War Z diorama I’m working on or the fact that I just finished building the amazing 10185 Green Grocer (favorite LEGO set of the year so far), I have increasing interest in LEGO Town creations. This means I’m spending a lot more time on Brick Town Talk, an excellent LEGO blog Continue reading →
I have Indian food at least two to three times a week (at least in part because the cafeterias at work regularly serve a selection of curries), and it’s the one cuisine I could eat exclusively for the rest of my life. This wonderful English curryhouse by Ralph Savelsberg (Flickr) makes me crave baingan bharta Continue reading →
All three of the modular building sets are now available from the LEGO Store online. Left to right, that’s: 10182 Café Corner 10190 Market Street 10185 Green Grocer Yay! But don’t you find the gaps in the product numbers intriguing? I do…
Chiukeung from Hong Kong minimizes the latest Green Grocer LEGO set. The model uses over 450 lego pieces and took two weeks to design and build. It looks very nice, and check out the mini renditions of Cafe Corner and Market Street below:
Brickshelf user Kris1234 has shows us what the popular Cafe Corner and Market Street LEGO sets would look like in the older ages. It looks like civilization hasn’t progressed all that much, great semblance!
