Hello all! For the last few weeks I've been slowly building up a large Gotham building. It is the Iceberg Lounge, a club Penguin owns which he masquerades as the finest of all Lounges while using it as a front for illegal arms deals and whatnot. It is also a place where the freaks can dine among the normal people, and information is exchanged, with even Batman coming to the Penguin for info. This moc is dedicated to EB member The Penguin, who I haven't seen in some time  :cry_sad:

Here is a partial inspiration pic from the brilliant animated series:  
Posted Image

And here is the massive creation, build upon a 48x48 baseplate. I am beyond happy at how the lettering at the front came out, do please provide some feedback on this. The colour scheme is based on that of a penguin with an arctic flair of blue inside as you'll see:
Posted Image

Right side, I'm also happy how the slopes at the top came out, really gives it style in my opinion:
Posted Image

Other side with two open rooms which you'll see later. This section was the hardest but I'm pleased with it:
Posted Image

Front Window which you'll see a bit more of later.

Front door, and what lies inside:
Posted Image

Window Shots I Like.

Here is the lower of the two open playable rooms. This is the "Allowed Personnel Only" area where Penguin arranges his illegal arms deals with his customers, and tapes them (as seen by the piece on the table) just in case. There are two stinger missiles in the back for sale. I gave this room a decidedly blander colour scheme to emphasise that this is where the deals are made as opposed to the facade outside:
Posted Image

And here is the top room, Penguin's office, complete with mini stairs to see out the window, batarang for inspection, diamonds ("legal" of course  :wink: ) and a rack for his umbrellas next to the door:
Posted Image

Other view.

And here is the main attraction, the gorgeous inside:
Posted Image

Top view. The lack was incredibly hard as since I have a lack of blue tiles, you can see I built it with normal blue bricks facing sideways:
Posted Image

Another view of the lake, I am very proud of how this came out, especially my design of the statue penguin:
Posted Image

Cool Views.

Here my bar! I love this thing! The chicken and pans were hard to fit on such a small beam, please not that the side door opens to allow staff in and out. also note the bottles aboe, near the little roof:
Posted Image

Clock on the wall.

Right next to it is the drink refiller and for the less rich, a vending machine under the stairs for lesser wines:
Posted Image

The door entrance (surprisingly hard for some reason), which I wanted to make a small corridor:
Posted Image

Which in turn is next to the toilet. This is a bot of a bummer, the toilet is one of my favourite parts yes you can barely see it. It has also a small hand washing basin in the wall:
Posted Image

The toilet door is in turn next to the locked (note the lock) swing doors that lead to the deals room. These doors are short as specialised for penguins for an air of superiority over his partners:
Posted Image

Doors open.
Another Lake Shot.

Now up the stairs is the "guest section". This is where the elite of the visitors come to sit with the owner: The Penguin himself, be it the mayor, celebrity or an interested buyer of arms. This area as the best part included Penguin's love of umbrella and also his love of black and white colour schemes like a penguin:
Posted Image

Bigger shot, there are two storage boxes for all manner of bad stuff behind and the window I was talking about earlier makes an appearance to view out of. The blue door leads to Penguin's office of course:
Posted Image

Epic shot, it really is cool to look at, it is my favourite Bat-creation yet:
Posted Image

More epic shots. I deliberately left the roof mostly open for play purposes and I think it works:
Posted Image

Posted Image

Now we have it filled up, my favourite bit:
Posted Image

Corner Prostitute.
Gang Violence.
Alfred helps on missions sometimes.
Battling Firefly.
Chasing the Cat.
Facing the SWAT, or is that running Nightwing?
Gordon and Montoya and Hugo Strange.
Henchman, Summer Gleeson,Bane and Sal Maroni entering the deals room.
Bullock leaving the toilet.
The lovien' couple!
Riddler and Scarecrow discuss politics.
Chinese gangster, Talia, Mad Hatter and Poison Ivy enjoy a drink.
Mr.Freeze disapproves of the ice machine!
Gangster, Gangster, Black Mask and Killer Croc like the waitress.
Penguin's favourite customer approves of the colour scheme.

No wait, this is EPIC:

Great work batbrick! But there's only 2 rooms? Either way, I am guessing you will use this for some comic yes?

Keep up the good work!

Amazing! It's massive and full of cool features, I especially like the big penguin statue on top of the fountain. The rooms are also very nice and details but it's a shame there were only 2. The writing on the front of the building I think is done very well using those mini slope bricks. The sides are just to plain for my liking but what else do you expect round the back of a building? Keep up the good work. :thumbup:

This is awesome.  I love the lettering in front of the lounge, and the color scheme is good too.  I would have gone with a little more yellow/orange (the color of penguin beaks) but it's still really good.  I really like the big penguin statue. The toilet seems a little too big, but it's good that you included one.

this is really great work batbrick. i do suggest that you find a whole bunch of transparent white/blue pieces and add the to your creation.  it just doesn't give that "ice" effect. another suggestion, you can make the iceberg in the lake maybe just a bit bigger. but good work.

I love it! The whole thing is really detailed and I can see you put a lot of dedication into this! The exterior is cool, and I really like the letters. Penguin's office is cool as well, the stairs were a neat and funny idea. The balcony is simple, but effective. The deals room is okay. I really like the bar, especially the roof with the drink shelf underneath it. The lake (fountain?) is awesome, I like how you made the penguins. The corridor (by the front door) is very nice, I can see why it was hard to make. I love how you made the ceilings in the corridor and office, they really make the whole creation look more like a building. It's a shame we can't see the toilet, I need ideas for those. The basin is very clever. And finally, you included your Bat figs in a creation!! :sweet: Overall, I think this is you best creation yet, before the Temple. :thumbup: :thumbup:

Excellent MOC.  The letters on the front look great and this has a very cool feeling.

I like the place filled up much better than empty though.  It has so much going on it that way and it has a hectic gotham look that way.

Great building Batbrick!! Its got a real clubby feel to it, small standing space, smaller tables, and even less chairs. :laugh:
Did you do some "research" for this one?  :laugh:
I really like the outside and how the letters are spelled in bricks, totally awesome.  :thumbup:

This is an amazing MOC, the details and the design are impeccable. The letters on the front look amazing, as well as the fountain in the center.

For me this is a fantastic job and I can't wait to see some more of your MOCs! :classic:

I thought the Mega Mayan Temple was your largest MOC ever? Now, this is a much bigger scale compared to that.  :sweet:
I had not seen Penguin for a long time as well. I wonder where he have been?

The lounge layout is very nice with its black and white facade, illustrating the Penguin style. The wordings are done very nicely on the front. Overall, it gave me a cold feeling. Brrrrr.  :laugh:

What I love the most in this MOC is your penguin fountain. You have done very well with your SNOT technique on the fountain. The penguin statue is really very lovely. Somehow, it reminded me of the Penguin King. The entire building is really very nice. I think you have done a very great job, once again.  :thumbup:

The best part is by placing all of your Batman minifigs and the rest of your cast which is on your project. It's nice to see almost all of them into this Lounge for some cool drinks. More importantly, this is a place for villians' haven for them to crack their head to pin down Batman.  :devil:

One part of your design in the Lounge which is the single seater that is on the left and right of the fountain. I am not sure why you let them sit individually. Are they supposed to watch the Penguins ice skating peformance in the fountain?  :tongue:

Yay, this is exciting! I started building a Wayne Manor, or rather a large room of it based on the '60s TV series (with moving bookshelf and batpoles!) to go above the Batcave. Unfortunately the inside was good, for a set, but the outsides of it didn't really work, though I would have loved to build a whole Wayne Manor. I look forward to yours.  :tongue:  :thumbup:

Put the Market Place and Café Corner next to it and You've got a city.
I like how you've transformed the animated version into a perfect lego minifig-scaled version.
And must I add that your white bricks are in very fine condition - no yellowing (most of mine look awful)
How about adding a poll to make people vote how good this is?

When you said this thing was big, I didn't imagine this! I guess it's a good thing you didn't fill in the roof, you'd have had no bricks left.  :laugh:

The outside is fantastic. Quite simple, but well-executed. The letters are really good, and I like the slopes on the roof edge.

The inside is just fantastic. The lake in the middle, with the penguin statue, the tables, the bar area, wow! The lake is well-built, and looks nice and clean. Can I ask though, the penguins in the lake... why are they carrying guns? Surely that's not the image a 'respectable club' wants to give out?

The 'secret rooms' are good too, they look very utilitarian, rather than classy like the rest of the building. But of course, they're not messy, as there's a brush there to clean up.

The toilet is rather big, but it still looks good, and I guess at least it's there. Most people wouldn't have bothered.

Seriously though, this is fantastic. A worthy addition to the Lego Bat-mythos, even if it's not one of the better-known locales. Great work mate.

Hang on, why are there two Batmen? Three if Matches is still inside?
Yep, I'm back! Be afraid...

This is an awesome building, BatBrick, with amazing details everywhere and a beautiful diamond in the middle: the penguin fountain. I just... love it  :wub:
