Haha awesome! The TV and lamp are my favourite parts, and the green colour is great for the wall. It really gives off an 80's vibe :thumbup:

What a great scene. Excellent technique and use of colors. I like the little boys face in the second picture after he loses all of his chips!

The retro tv is brilliant. The idea and coloring works well. Times they are a'changing. I miss board game night.

I like how you made the rug.

Your MOC's got a great atmosphere and reminds me of a typical apartment you get to see in older movies. I especially love the way you used the rope as a TV cable. That's an awesome idea :thumbup:

I also love this MOC!

Especially the lamp and the TV!
But also how the son grows a beard in between the two frames!  :wink:

Amazing little MOC. Makes me think of some of the 80s sitcoms like Full House with the family togetherness feeling. I love it.

I agree with a number of things that people have already said. I like the lamp, not something I've ever thought about before. And is that a lever without the base pused into the cone piece to represent the pull cord to switch the lamp on with? If so, that's a great little detail that's easily missed.

Great job on it as everyone has said.  Which shade of green is that?  I also like the TV and the power cord on the TV, I dont think I have ever seen that in a lego model before.  Great detail.

Yes thats a level I squeezed in there :)

For the walls I have "sand green", the curtains are "dark green" and the lamp is "green".

Green walls, green lamp and those curtains. Definitely 80's. The rug caught my eye first. Good choice for the minifig faces as well. Typical expressiosn of a family playing board games. Well done.
