Naww, I lost  :tongue:  Too many awesome MOCs and epic individual layouts (And they're here on this site too!), that I'm a little surprised I got a nomination  :blush:

Thanks for the comments, guys.

Thanks!

These are the 3 that I found in a quick browse of what I had.  I may have a few more, but I'll have to look later.

Hey guys, bamp.

It looks like the guys at Redbox HQ liked my little Redbox... (it was "silently" sitting in my Brickworld display hehe)

ANd while I bumped with that, I might as well share some previews of my possible next MOCs:

I have the last one in flesh... in brick, rather.  It's going to be a bookstore.  5 bonus points to whoever can guess what the middle building will be.

I look forward to your future work 'wooootles'.....Brick On ! :grin:

BAMP

Have any of you tried doing custom stickers using waterslide decals?  I started to use them in my upcoming MOC.  It kinda screws up on color-heavy decals (like the Barista, see small-ish scratches) but it doesn't look too bad overall.


Anyways, here they are... and I should get my MOC ready within a couple of weeks.

Haha, perhaps I should, considering it takes me a while to get any MOCs up anyway.  The Barnes and Noble/Starbucks combo MOC should look like the unfinished LDD image(right) I posted a couple of posts up, if that helps...

Thanks for looking!

Thank you all for you support, here in EB, or over on Flickr and CUUSOO.

Here's me playing around with my 3 largest MOCs.  

After putting the Midtown Condo up (biggest one facing backwards) I accidentally dropped the first floor and smashed half of it.  After some angst and focus, I was able to rebuild it.  But uncomfortably, I had a couple of pieces left over and I can't remember where it was supposed to be, though it looked alright :look: Hopefully it wasn't of structural significance :laugh:

Posted Image



But here's my actual planned layout, updated for 2014.  It's super ambitious, stretching up to 100 inches (10 x 7 of 32x32 baseplates) and possibly won't be realized until I move and get a bigger room for them :laugh:
Posted Image

1. Midtown Condominiums
2. Avenue Residences
3. Barnes & Noble /Starbucks
4. Cheesecake Factory (or a steakhouse; I haven't decided what it would be yet but I am already building it/deciding what color it should be).  WIP.
5. Tech Store (Apple? Windows?) Proposed
6. LEGO Store.  Proposed
7. Hardware / Furniture Store? (Something like a home improvement store?  Shouls be around the size of the bookstore),  Proposed
8. Flagship Hotel/Apartment (I think it's actually happening, I've already accumulated lots of window pieces and white bricks and dark bluish grey plates, and have done facade prototypes, yet I only have 25-30% of the pieces I'd need as an estimate.  But it's happening.) WIP.
9. Park (It's happening too, though I haven't started it)
