    Hello, and welcome to my profile page. I have a room full of LEGO town, railway, space, Doctor Who & other assorted sets / MOCs / MODs. I built my town featuring these MODs of sets: Medieval Market Village, Town Plan, Diagon Alley, World City / CITY, and Trains.
    This are all my buildings I own:

    -Old Blacksmiths, now my house with finished bottom floor and staircase.
    -The Tavern / Pub / Bar from has an inside staircase.
    -Ollivander Wand shop is used as Bob's Adventure Supplies.
    -Gringott's is now First Imperial Bank.
    -Borgin & Burkes is my fictional local Ironwood Lego Users Group (Iron-LUG) meeting spot, featuring a Micro-LEGO layout.
    -There is a custom two story Post Office.
    -Town Hall borrowed from the 2008 Town Plan remake.
    -Triple 32x32 base-plate long World City-style train shed

    This all goes along with 61 trains (rolling stock and locomotives) and 6 structures (such as the above station and shed, but with bridges, a water tower, and several other objects)

    Thanks for viewing!!

  1. Early summer, 1926, somewhere in the jungles of a forgotten island off the coast of South America... This is it: the Temple of the Unknown Question. Inside this structure is the other-worldly Guardian which will grant you either fantastic riches, immortality, or infinite knowledge... your choice is one of those three. (If you answer the question correctly of course!) To reach the temple, Johnny had to follow a certain map: the only problem was a 17th century pirate had the other half of said map on his ship. To find the temple, the had to find pirate, who had already answered the question and become immortal. Upon finding him, the pirate gave the map (and some advice) to Johnny, who then had it stolen by Lord Sam Sinister. After following Sam to the hidden island and the temple therein, Johnny and company have to think fast to stop Sam from getting to the ancient guardian first! The rear of the temple. Three switches are inside the first room. The two outer ones will unlock the the mechanism to reveal a treasure chest, while the middle one is a dummy lever. The two tiles on the wall on the right wall are supposed to have this print. With the levers flipped down, the chest is revealed. However, inside this chest is a Pandora's box of sorts: opening it will let out a bright light for 30 seconds or so, as it sucks those unfortunate enough to see the light into the infinitely larger space in the chest and then slams shut on itself. In universe, this box will be taken by Sam Sinister as he thinks it contains the treasure he seeks. He will deliver it, unopened, to Lord Ogel who will open it along with his top generals after Sam is paid and leaves. (Thus barely escaping death!) The real treasure is inside the second room: after seeing the notched arrows placed by the pirate many years ago on the first room's walls, Johnny finds the small secret door and enters this room to find the guardian and five jewels. (four on walls, one on staff in guardian's hand) The statue slowly awakens, and asks for a member of the party to come forward to receive the question. Heeding the pirate's advice, he sends Miss Pippin Reed to do the honors, as she alone can answer what no man can answer. After relaying the answer via whisper, her mind is wiped of the question and answer, and is given the choice of immeasurable wealth, eternal life or infinite knowledge. She chooses not to choose, saying the gifts are too large for one person (or group of people) to share. Thus, the adventurers walk back out to the empty clearing and plant dynamite and blow the temple sky-high, thus destroying any chance of anyone, good or evil ever getting the question right again. NOTES: This model was based on set 21132 from the Minecraft theme, which was expanded and modified to be quite a bit larger with surrounding land features and a second room with the statue in that room should feature this print here. The first half of the map (the one the pirate had) described in the text is this one here while the one half Johnny had is in this link. Also, the LDD file for the entire temple can be found here.
  2. It's okay! I just wasn't sure who you were referring to and assumed it was me, but apparently it was not.
  3. If you are referring to my previous comment (the one above yours), please allow me to explain: I don't hate Minecraft, it just usually isn't on my radar of sets to buy. I quite like the ingenious use of basic parts, and the new village set was very neat. However, I hadn't found any sets to fit in with my LEGO layout until I saw pics of the Ocean Monument set as it works perfectly for my purposes with (hopefully) little change. i'm sorry if my post was slightly off topic, as I got a little too excited about the set and thought people would like to know this set can be used for non-minecraft builds / layouts, which in retrospect, is quite obvious as it is all LEGO bricks after all! So, in short: Sorry for bothering you with the post I made before.
  4. I may not care for Minecraft usually, but the ocean monument set looks perfect for my Adventurers models. I'm thinking of it being a temple set in a swamp, similar to being a up-scaled jungle temple set. I already have 36 trees ready to be built for my jungle cutter to cut down to plow a path to the temple. It may not be interesting in a Minecraft setting, but with a couple tweaks, it looks perfect as can be for my purposes... I just can't wait to see the inside!
  5. Sorry for the slight bump, but the first post has now been updated with new pictures of the model in real life and a updated LDD file. As usual, Comments, Questions, Suggestions, and Complaints are always welcome!
  6. Thank you Sander1992! Thanks! That's what I have done, it's already my most popular picture I've ever done on Flickr, and is rising fast on MOCpages.
  7. Sorry for the BUMP! The model now has one more section for storage, and a elongated engine space / tail fins, plus The LDD file has been updated as well.
  8. makes me want to upgrade my rocket to a bigger scale. Thanks Mark Stafford for the idea!
  9. Thanks! I didn't realize it before, but at 114 studs long, this has officially become a Seriously Huge Investment In Parts, or SHIP!
  10. This model was originally a ALCO MRS-1 built by Anthony Sava, but has been so severely modified that it no longer looks like the prototype loco. So I went searching And found another ALCO locomotive, a RSD-12 that looks like my loco. Both my model and the prototype have the six wheels, and the same basic hood and cab design, plus the curved ends match the RSD-12 better than the sharp-ended MRS-1. ..and here is my Lego model of it, as Brick Railway Systems loco number 7924. I even thought about putting two of this part under the headlights at both ends, but I think the model looks better the way it is now. NOTE: The printed letter tiles with the railroad's initials "BRS" will go on the long hood. I misplaced the two letter "R" tiles, and need to order some more, but the rest of the letters are on my desk. (They are hard to keep from rotating without the middle letters to hold the others in place, so they are not on the model yet.) The center axles on these six-wheel bogies slide left and right to allow for tight turns on switches and flex-track. I took Anthony Sava's original design and beefed it up, making it a lot stronger and a little taller. Here is the picture (not mine) I found that matched my model. I also believe this is the last ALCO RSD-12 left. (I could be wrong, though.) The photo is originally from here. Here is the LDD file for the diesel loco as shown above. Comments, Questions, Suggestions, and Complaints are always welcome!
  11. This was originally my sig-fig, then a guy here on Eurobricks @Jebediahs made a thread about drawing sig-figs of other users. I was lucky enough to get one before he stopped posting them around late 2011-ish.
  12. I added some parts to set 5982 (Smash and Grab) and then decided on changing the color to dark gray to turn it back into a regular tow truck. I removed the flick-fire missiles, and played around with a couple of options for a driver figure, eventually settling on who you see here. "What happens when you vintage flying car runs out of plutonium, or you space limo engine gets too hot? How about if someone runs over the time on the parking meter and you need to park you hover bike? Never fear, the tow truck's here! Complete with sonic wrench and ultra-violet flashlight, this hauling machine will haul your (or someone else's!) problem away for a reasonable price. Yes sir! Just call Louis "Brains" McCoy to tow your problematic machine away... and remember, if in doubt on who to trust to tow your garage queen: Ask for the real McCoy!" The flick fire missiles used to come out of those orange globes on the front. I changed them into regular hazard lighting by securely attaching them to the frame. The ship can seat one figure in the cockpit. The rear of the ship features two engines and the crane arm. The driver of this tow truck is Louis "Brains" McCoy, brother to a famous doctor on a star-ship in another reality. A accident with a temperamental gravity-drive ship brought him to this reality and turned him into a living un-dead, though he retained all his knowledge and personality in the change. (Do NOT call him a zombie though, as it hurts his rather sensitive feelings.) The LDD file is available here if you want it. Comments, questions, suggestions, and complaints are always welcome!
  13. This ship was originally inspired by a single picture of set 76084 (The Ultimate Battle for Asgard) from the Marvel Superheroes theme. The ship was then heavily modified into it's current form, with a single tail fin and trans-red canopy. The front of the ship features a "three golden circles" symbol of the alien pilot's native culture on either side of the saucer ring. Their is room for a single pilot mini-figure at the controls behind the opening canopy. The rear of the ship features two rows of engines and a single tail fin. The alien life-form shown here has a name that is unpronounceable to most species, as she talks with his mind at a very fast pace, so everyone calls her "Hyper". This may also have something to do with her love of caffeinated drinks, as her body chemistry allows for him to drink coffee and soda at levels that would cause a human to go into diabetic shock or die. These sugary drinks only make her move faster and still keep a clear head with no addictive tendencies. (Some say one of this species drank so much caffeine his mind shifted into a higher plane of existence, and his body became pure energy.) Anyway, as you can guess, Soda and Coffee companies love his species, so most have become experimental taste testers or company representatives. Hyper makes her living as a chemist, working on new flavors of coffee and soda to sell to the drink companies. Here is the LDD link for figure and ship. Comments, questions and complaints welcome!
  14. Thanks, post pictures when it's done! Yes, those torsos are very cool.
  15. LDD file and pictures updated... sorry for the necro-bump!
