Looking good! The photography is done very well, and so is the build! The mnfig struggling with all the cardboard is a great addition, and the containers are excellent as well. I would suggest changing the couple of the second container to differentiate it from the first, though.

That's a nice MOC. I like the way you presented the minifig as actively recycling. I'm glad I'm not the only one having problems recycling cardboard and paper.  :blush:

Very nice! Keep on MOCcing! The scenes are very lifelike indeed! Sweden and Holland are not that different when it comes to (personal) recycling apparently.

Do you need replacement stickers for LEGO (reproductions and customs): ministickers.nl

What then about the LEGuanO?!

Excellent MOC 'LegoJalex', a more detailed version than the one we get in the recycling truck set....that poor guy looks like he's been henpecked by his wife or girl friend there ! :laugh:
Great job on the small stickers too, which medium do you use ? (I use glossy photo sticker paper)

I really like this - it looks very realistic. And the presentation is great, with just the right amount of life to emphasise the details. You should build a version of this on a 16x32 plate and make it compatible with the modular buildings - that way you could enter it into Category 2 of the Modular Madness competition :)

Love the presentation! :laugh: The one thing I'd change is the light blue to green to match the sticker/bin. Neat little build, nonetheless.

This is an excellent little moc. Very colorful and cute. I love the design of the recycling bins.  :classic:

The cardboard reminds me of myself bringing a stack of pizza boxes to the dumpster after a large party.

They always fall over.  :laugh:

Nice work. I always like it when builders take their time to make a scene 'come alive' like this.

Agreed. I think it could make a nice entry in our competition.

I haven´t seen that competition until now. Sounds very interesting!

For the stickers I use some kind of etiquettes with matte finish, that I print out from the computer. I'm still a novice, so I guess there are better paper qualities. It sounds better to use a glossy paper.

Really neat idea!

I am just back from a 2 week European Trip, which has given me a ton of ideas for MODs and what not, and these are all over most of Holland!

I love how you went that step further, and added wheelchair access. Clearly your Lego Town is trying to meet the European Disability Laws!  :laugh:

Your creation has a lot of life. I liked!
In Sweden there is an entry for disabled in the containers, or was your creation? Here in Portugal there isn't!

I just realised that I was the one that suggested that you build a bigger version to enter into the competition!

I'm proud to have seen the incredible potential in your creation :D

EDIT: I know I bumped an older topic, but I thought it would be interesting for other people to see what predated the great contest entry, too.

This bump is way better than a simple one-line comment.

Maybe we could post a pic-link to the Modular Madness Entry for a comparison. :grin:

Very nice little MOC. I love the progression of people coming through. What do they do with all the wheelchair people after you drop them off to be recycled?  *huh*
