...And it all led up to Edward’s Island

You may recall a prior post featuring Dale Harris and his Neo-Fabuland concept. It was Boris’s Post Office, an adorable little scene, and while it may have looked like big, clunky Fabuland pieces designed for littler hands, it was actually meticulously constructed out of “regular” LEGO bricks. Back then he alluded to the fact that it was merely a small module that would eventually be part of a much larger layout. Well, feast your eyes on Edward’s Island! The aforementioned Barty’s Post Office is there about centered on the island but that is accompanied by a whole assortment of adorable Fabuland denizens and their primary-colored buildings.

The entire island is rich with truly satisfying details to behold. I really enjoy the retro-fabulous vehicles along the dock…

But my favorite detail has to be this little ‘gator on a skateboard!

    Amazing.

    Off topic: I’ve never looked at Fabuland sets but they seem like they’d be great for kids, each representing a scene or a place, with their own baseplates. You could build a community and have a lot of play options and the animal heads are more fun than people.
