Welcome to the Eurobricks Special LEGO Themes forum!


Special Themes is the home to all the LEGO themes - official or otherwise - which don't have a specific place elsewhere in the boards.  It's a fairly eclectic mix!  We have everything from the current themes of Collectable Minfigures, CREATOR, Racers and Architecture, to old favourites like Fabuland, and specialist interests such as Military.  You'll find MOCs of all these themes, plus a whole lot more to the limits of your imagination in the MOC Index; this thread includes links to all the important discussion topics in Special Themes, sorted by theme.

Fabuland
Collectable Minifigures
CREATOR
Architecture
Military
Boardgames (includes Heroica)
Racers

Should I post my MOC in Special Themes?

If you're not sure whether your MOC belongs in Special Themes, take a good look through the MOC index and see if anything similar is indexed there.   If you're still not sure, we'll try to find a place for your MOC provided it wouldn't be more appropriate in a different forum.


Posting Conventions

If you're starting a new discussion topic in Special Themes, please first have a good look through this thread to see if a similar topic already exists.  Try to make the topic title describe accurately what the thread is about; people are more likely to read it, and it'll be easier to find.  If you're posting a MOC or Review, please prefix the topic title with MOC: or Review: respectively.  If you don't, we'll change it for you.

If in doubt, ask!  Either via PM or in the General Discussion Thread.

CREATOR traces its roots back to the very origins of LEGO - creating fantastic, realistic models in a variety of themes and styles from a selection of relatively simple bricks.  Nowadays, CREATOR encompasses everything from vehicles and minifigure-scaled houses to creatures and robots, and of the entire LEGO range (with the possible exception of Technic) only CREATOR still includes alternative builds in its instructions.

Architecture is a recent addition to the LEGO repertoire.  The line consists of two subthemes: the Landmark Series consists of smaller models of iconic buildings and structures from around the world; the Architect Series features larger models of famous homes and public buildings.   Mostly these are American, but recently LEGO has been broadening its target market to include the rest of the world, and perhaps more world-wide buildings will follow.

New to the LEGO range in 2010, LEGO Boardgames adds a whole new dimension to LEGO-based fun!  This year also sees the arrival of Heroica - a series of LEGO-based Role-Playing adventures - which has already provoked huge interest here on EB.
