Sometimes the everyday life seems to be sad and grey like in this town. But not for the AFOL who lives there. Making LEGO Creations is his bright spot in his everyday life.

I must say, that is a really ingenious creation. How many shades of grey are there anyway? There can't be any more than 50. :laugh:

There's some lovely details hidden under the grayness.  I particularly like the way you made the beds and the use of the tape machine(?) tiles for the top of the cooker in the kitchen was inspired.

Thanks for sharing it with us!

That's very cool. I like how everything still manages to be visible despite almost every object being one of four shades. :thumbup:

That is a fantastic MOC! I love the way you presented it. Are there any stills of it in full color?  :classic:

Some absolutely beautiful details, stunning! Not to mention how accurate I find this creation. While my buddies always look forward to a night at the pub, I walk home to my LEGO collection whistling Black's "Wonderful Life" and planning my next creation!

Hey!  What a beautiful MOC.  The first glimpse of color after the long parade of grey - the pic of the guy walking away from the bus - would have to be my favorite.  The winos are a nice touch as well.  Many thanks for sharing that with us.

Is that actually built all in shades of gray and black, or did you use a photshop effect?

It's built in shades of grey and black. If I had used photo effects I couldn't exhibit it at LEGO exhibitions. :wink:

Amazing work! The black, white and grey shades on their own are a demonstration of creativity, to use bricks for other purposes, like the flowers made of technic gears. The message of the MOC is clear, LEGO really brightens our days! Great work and thanks for sharing!

That's really awesome! Really nice details in the MOC like the little rat at the trash can. :wub:
I really love the view of the boxes in the Lego room :thumbup: those are very well made.

I was almost going to ask for pics in full color... When I realized that the whole thing was build with grey bricks! This looks awesome. :thumbup:

Brilliant MOC, I think it was mentioned above, but the amount of detail that still 'pops' in grey is simply amazing! The coloured room is fantastic but there is detail throughout the MOC, very well done!

Fantastic idea and very well built, happy building :laugh:
