A place to escape from those pesky humans

I remember being super excited when Hotel Transylvania was announced in 2011. Not only due to its quirky theme or creepy characters. Director Genndy Tartakovsky announced that its potential success could also revive his old series, Samurai Jack. Well, Jack came back. Three movies and an animated series later, it’s clear this story was a big hit. Just in time for this Halloween, Mehdi Rustamov built a dollhouse-style playset inspired by this spooky series. This cute and creepy set is brimming with characters and features the main entrance hall, Dracula and Mavi’s rooms, and Quasimodo’s kitchen. Please don’t bother the vacationing creatures as we take a look around, all right?

Relax in luxury in this modular hotel

The Modular building series of Creator Expert sets has become one of LEGO’s most popular home-brewed themes, and in addition to lots of official sets like Assembly Square, it’s inspired countless fans to build their own buildings in the same style. Although the theme has shifted recently to a 1950s Americana aesthetic with sets like the Corner Garage and Downtown Diner, most of the sets feature a quasi-European vintage style. In that vein, Bricked1980 brings us the lovely hotel Queen Bricktoria as a digital model.

The corner module fits perfectly next to Bricked1980’s Brick Square Post Office module, with both featuring gorgeously ornate decorations. Even though it only features three stories, the hotel seems even taller thanks to its tiered look and upper balcony. It looks like the perfect place for a weekend getaway and a relaxing brunch.

Welcome to the Coral Hotel, where your ocean view room is ready!

This gorgeous piece of LEGO architecture by Andrew Tate is an Art Deco fantasy. Growing up near beach towns as a kid I saw tons of places like this with names like The Dunes, Ocean Vista and The Tides. They were bright, cheerful buildings with tropical color schemes and sun burned beach goers coming in and out. I was fascinated by the various examples of architecture, which ranged from Art Deco design to that of the Atomic 50s.

Mark Larson sits down for a Q&A about the new LegoLand Hotel in California.

Mark Larson has been no stranger to readers of The Brothers Brick. Mark is now working for LEGO as a Master Modeler. One of his recent projects has been working on the new Legoland hotel, set to open in April at Legoland California.

Mark recently did an interview with Huffington Post Travel and answered many questions about his work on the hotel, his job with LEGO and how to get a dragon in a bathtub to talk (spoiler alert: it’s secret LEGO magic).
