MOC: Corner Candy
Posted 01 May 2012 - 03:43 AM
Just wanted to share some on my Corner Candy modular building design which many have really enjoyed and shown interest in. I designed it a while back as a candy store with apartment above. There are 3 levels in all with another spiral staircase inside leading the the upper level of the apartment. It is built in the CCC modular style so I could add it to my own town layout. Each level is tiled for removal like the official sets.
The special highlights and my own favorite aspects of the model are the spiral stairs and textures I used. The flower beds were also a fun design and challenge to work into the model. I tried to make it in a some what Victorian style, thus the seeming overkill of colors and design styles.
I have finally put it on CUUSOO due to popularity. You can add your support here if you like it: http://lego.cuusoo.c...iew/15425 Your support goes a long way towards helping fellow collectors be able to get this model to add to their collections.
Comment away and let me know what you think.

I'd like you to edit it, though, to present it as a stand alone MOC rather than a Cuusoo project. Tell us a little about it. Interesting features, what you like most about it. Then people can comment on the build itself. If you want to add "I've put it on Cuusoo" and link to the project at the end, that's perfectly fine.

Please do. I looked for that info, but did not find it until I had posted. I will edit the post shortly...

This life isn't the end. We will meet again.

I really like the exterior staircase going to a second floor entry. The third floor balcony is also quite nice.
The only cons (for me) is a little too much clutter and there are just a few too many different pastel like colors, maybe few less different colors would be nice.
Overall, quite nice.
The PDF instructions on his Bricklink store are reasonably priced, but I believe the complete kit at $1,475.00 is a little over the top.

Get organized and build more is my plan for 2013!
Just build more is my plan for 2014! (Good luck with that!)

I have instructions there and have posted on a few other sites int he past, so probably where you saw it.
Do you have other pictures taken more closely?
Are there interior of this awesome building?
The cuusoo listing has my Flicr stream link with more photos.
Well, that price is only due to my last model being my own. I'd part with it for that price, but when I have a kit in stock they are only $475.

As for Cuusoo... I'm sorry, but I was one of the whiners about too many Cuusoo posts, but I stand by that. I visit once ever week or so and go through every single new entry to try to find ones to support, and when I do that I will definitely vote for this one. I love all the little details. It would probably cost a fortune as a LEGO set... but it would probably cost more to buy the pieces. I'm sure TLG would butcher it down to a $200 or below price range, but I'm willing to bet I'd still like it.

If you could change it to "Corner Candy Modular Building MOC" that would be great plus a little more descriptive. Thanks!

Thanks. Many have mentioned the busy aspect, but that was part of the intent. I'm sure LEGO would modify it some though as is the cost is not really to bad. You can get all parts far less than any older modular and on par with current ones. Should make for a LEGO produced set of about the save value/price and part count.
