A brilliant Claas Xerion is here just in time for the start of the new growing season [Instructions]

Cole Blaq hasn’t treated us with his new wonderful designs since the middle of the last year. Finally, he is back starting the new building season with an awesome Town-themed model of Claas Xerion. The tractor has a lot in common with the new LEGO City 60181 Forest Tractor set, but unlike the official model it has a rotating cabin. Make sure to check out the instructions for this cool creation; it won’t take you many pieces to build one for your own LEGO farm!

When was the last time your minifigures have seen their doctor?

During my childhood years, I saw dozens of broken LEGO pieces; some were damaged by harsh play conditions, others were tortured by my cat. But the worst was to find a favourite minifigure with a broken leg or arm. Jean Macou presents a building I wish my little city had — a magnificent city hospital which seems to have just about any equipment to treat a minifigure no matter how bad the injuries are. The authentic exterior of this massive building can easily make one believe this creation has a real-life prototype, while its wide windows let us peek into the hospital and try to guess what is going on inside…

The hospital is fully modular, which means any floor can be removed providing access for a better view and more convenient play. Although the building isn’t very spacious, it has literally anything you can find in a real hospital.

Who Broke his leg? A Modular hospital

My favourite part is the right wing of the hospital featuring the surgery room. Bonus points for a couple of surgeons right from Series 6 of the Collectible Minifigures.

Living the beautiful life at Villa Arcus

Occasionally, I’ll day-dream about winning the lottery. Usually there’s some fiscal responsibility, but then there’s always a house purchase. That house is typically on the water somewhere, and I certainly wouldn’t mind one with the inspired architecture of Villa Arcus by Jussi Koskinen.

There is a lot to love about this build: The roof line, the windows, the curved walls. My eye is drawn to the gorgeous brickwork on the upper right of the home. This creation features a full interior, too. The techniques go far beyond the outer walls, with fantastic attention to detail in each room.

Money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy you a go-kart.

We’re used to seeing towering skyscrapers and other massive creations in Micropolis layouts. But sometimes, the most eye-catching city block in a layout is the smallest one. Tammo S. demonstrates this truth with his most recent LEGO build, a micro go-kart racing facility. Utilizing the new macaroni tiles for twisty roads, roller skates for karts, and half-sunken grille tiles for a chain-link fence, Tammo has created an adorable place for thrill-seekers of all ages.

Happy 2018 + the best LEGO of 2017 [News]

2018 has officially arrived worldwide, and this lovely monument by Pasq67 is here to help us celebrate. While we’ve seen the great technique of using 1×1 quarter circle tiles for lettering before, we hadn’t seen this super cool font made of macaroni pieces. And no matter what your favorite theme is, you’re covered here as a multitude of characters stroll through the park.
