Bricks and Minifigs Modular

Recommended Posts


Hi everybody! Ever since I began working at Bricks and Minifigs, I wanted to attempt to build a modular building of it; and so, to celebrate my first anniversary of working at Bricks and Minifigs, I built this. This is my first modular that I’ve built, and it was a ton of fun to construct. Maybe I’ll make more in the future…

The First Story:


Unlike any brick (pun intended) and mortar store that sells LEGO® products, Bricks and Minifigs offers a variety of new and used LEGO® products, varying from individually sold minifigures, to retired sets that you will no longer find in any store. We also offer a large selection of “bulk bricks,” that is, a whole tray table full of miscellaneous LEGO® bricks that one can purchase according to container sizes. It’s basically Pick-A-Brick, but with an astronomically larger variety. There are also little stations of tray tables where you can build your own minifigure. In addition to this, Bricks and Minifigs offers birthday parties, Mindstorms Robotics camps, as well as stop motion film camps.



There are currently 11 Bricks and Minifigs locations throughout the United States, but we are constantly growing, so there will hopefully be more locations sometime in the near future. Feel free to find a store near you at <a href=</a>


The Second Story:


Obviously, the first story of this building is a Bricks and Minifigs but on the second story is Harold's Haberdashery. Harold's Haberdashery. The height of men's luxury fashion. The epitome and pinnacle of style and comfort. Here you can find all of the latest and greatest fashions available, tailored (yes pun intended) to your very needs and desires. It is a very exclusive store, and it isn't everyday that they'll let people in just to "look around." However, Harold's Haberdashery isn't all that strict, for today in the store one can see that the owner has just given a free suit away to the gentleman standing there. ;-)

The Background of Bricks and Minifigs:


Bricks and Minifigs not only offer a wide selection in LEGO® products, but there are also some really wonderful people that I get to work with.

Adam: my boss and one of the best bosses the world will ever know. Preferring to canoe and be with nature in his free time, Adam’s favorite LEGO® theme is Star Wars; he is known to occasionally get into a debate with fellow employees and customers about the fall of the Galactic Republic. He greatly enjoys adding little trinkets and tidbits to our modular displays at work.

Tracy: Adam’s wife and our minifigure specialist. Tracy loves to work with minifigures and always has super-creative ways to advertise for our store and is our biggest Facebook contributor/poster. She loves to assist customers with her cheerful attitude and was my mentor when I first began working at Bricks and Minifigs.

Brock: Our Classic Space expert. Brock is the most knowledgeable person I know on anything and everything Classic Space, and everything having to do with LEGO® space themes for that matter. Appreciative of both the newer and older themes of LEGO®, I’ve learned quite a bit from his expertise. In his spare time, he enjoys working on his giant lunar-base MOC, which should be finished soon…

Diane: Brock’s fiancée and our bookkeeper. Diane’s experience in scheduling and finances have truly helped us here at Bricks and Minifigs. While she is somewhat hesitant to learn everything about LEGO® all at once, she is a huge fan of Harry Potter and Harry Potter LEGO® products.

John (me): Well what is there to say about me…? I am just a very lucky and blessed TFOL to be working with all these wonderful people. As you can see from my outfit, I obviously enjoy building ships and naval MOCs, though I am known to stretch out into many different genres as I often do. It's so incredible to be able to work with these awesome LEGO® fans.

Noah: Our only other TFOL employee and perhaps the biggest fan of modern combat that I’ve ever seen. Noah is an overwhelmingly accomplished TFOL and is always ready to build something (mostly to do with modern combat of course). Noah and I greatly enjoy making puns about LEGO® and anything else we can think of to make each other groan with agony at the cheesiness of the puns we make.

Tom: Our Mindstorms robotics and stop motion genius. Tom runs the camps that we offer and his knowledge as a teacher and expert in both fields of robotics and stop motion filming make him an asset to our team. In his spare time Tom enjoys working on bottle rockets with his son.


When I first saw Bricks and Minifigs, it was really something of a God-send. Just getting back into LEGO®, it was great for me to see such a store. I never thought I’d be fortunate enough to work at this wonderful place and since then, it’s been a rollercoaster of only great and fun times. I’ve met some really remarkable people here; it’s such a blast. For the kindness, warmth, and generosity shown to me I am truly indebted; thank you, Bricks and Minifigs.

More MOCs to come, that's for sure...
