Bruce Lowell (bruceywan) has taken one of the most fun old Adventurer’s sets, 5935 Island Hopper, and put his own skilled hands to recreating it for the MOCPages MocAtholon competition. The Island Hopper was always a favorite of mine in the final Adventurers setting, and Bruce’s version is all decked out with more advanced building Continue reading →
LEGO Town models on The Brothers Brick | Page 2
Towns in the world of LEGO have everything cities in the real world do — police stations, fire engines, trains, hairdressers and veterinarians. Check out all the beautiful buildings and vehicles we’ve featured here on The Brothers Brick.
Justin Pratt (legotanks) makes excellent little delivery trucks as well as tanks. At BrickCon last year, I gave him a couple of engraved “The Brothers Brick” bricks on condition that he build us a delivery van. Justin recently finished it, and posted it online last night (after displaying it at Emerald City Comicon this weekend). Continue reading →
Joe Klang (-derjoe-) has been busy building a city. Here’s a shot. It’s no secret I like realistic street scenes, so it’s no surprise I love this shot. Patrick Bosman is building a city too:
I’m usually not one for this style architecture in buildings (I appreciate the style—it’s just not my favorite). This build, though caught my eye. Eltsac Castle has posted this lovely Modern Modular. I like the color scheme, and the relative simplicity.
You don’t have to build big to build awesome. This sweet ride by Brian Kescenovitz is a marvel of cool techniques used at an incredibly small scale.
Michael Jasper (mijasper) is no stranger to TBB. His creative uses of odd-ball parts are always elegant examples of what can be done with LEGO. His latest desk makes brilliant use of the printed 1×1 plates from the Minecraft set as well as the new ice cream cone from Friends…not to mention the lipstick usage!
From flickr user RedCoKid comes this roaring art-deco Skyscraper. I usually find LEGO towers pretty dull, but that’s because all too often they’re little more than just stacked windows and basic bricks. This beauty, though, has classic style. And if I make it out correctly, the elevators are powered and actually move, too.
Paul Vermeesch created a model of his local Charlevoix Public Library to be permanently displayed at the library. I very much like the combination of colors including the subtle usage of medium blue and dark orange. This compilation of side views makes the model look like it fits in with the Lego Architecture kits.
The newest LEGO set in the modular building line, 10232 Palace Cinema is being officially unveiled this evening at BrickFair Alabama in Birmingham. Though LEGO’s official photos surfaced earlier this month, this is the first time we’ve gotten details about pricing and release date. 10232 Palace Cinema will return the line to its traditional price Continue reading →
More pictures of the upcoming modular building 10232 Palace Cinema have surfaced on Flickr. You can see them in this Flickr gallery.
A picture of the next modular building was discovered on Lego Shop at Home of 10232 Palace Cinema. There’s no word on the release date or pricing, but I suspect it will be available sometime in the spring, which is the usual release time for modulars. Via Brickset
Yaroslav (Dark-Alamez) expanded his layout of the Chicago cityscape for the DoubleBrick festival in Moscow. For detailes of the diorama, check out the gallery on Flickr.
Flickr user OliveSeon has built some of the most impressive large town dioramas I’ve seen. There are lots of people building cityscapes using official sets mixed in with their own creations and landscaping, but rarely are the official sets so well integrated. Additionally, he’s packed them both chock full of terrific details of his own, Continue reading →
I don’t often blog “modular houses” as I find them a little dime-a-dozen. However Richard “lafabrick” enticed me to break this habit as he has made such an impressive reproduction of a house in the Fives to Lille neighbourhood in France. This house is so cleverly made it’s probably the first (and likely the only) Continue reading →
Hippotam‘s vignettes are always fascinating to look at. His latest shows off the barber’s new hair dryer along with a clever use of the Friends hairpieces.
