Take a look at this - http://www.brickshel...wnHall/th09.jpg

This was created by Jamie for some exhibit or something with a LEGO Town Hall - see http://www.brick-tow.../town-hall.html

Look familiar, anyone? ;-)

Familiar how? Sorry I dont know much about it. But it looks nice. I recently bought a firebrigade but have yet to build it.

edit: I took a look at Lego.com and it looks like the creator just replaced the fire brigade bell with gold chrome pieces.

The "creator" actually created the Fire Brigade itself, I believe: he's a designer for LEGO who has worked on most of the modular buildings. This bell is probably from a prototype set. With the Town Hall, the "similarity" is that the Town Hall set reused these column designs. But I believe we knew that since before the set came out, with people speculating that it would be a reworking of this earlier Town Hall model of Jamie's.

But really, I don't see how this warrants its own topic. What's there to discuss, other than how LEGO designers, surprise, use similar techniques in their MOCs to those in actual sets?

For the record, here's a Town Hall that Jamie helped build before he was working for the LEGO company, in about 2005, for the Millyard Project:
