Hey guys,

I decided to create this topic and the main idea came from this and this post (so special thanks to @danth and @Digger of Bricks!).

I would like to highlight three things before I start to post inspirational MOCs:

I’ll post three staff picks everyday!

Please feel free to post your favorite MOCs!

Have fun admiring and taking inspiration from those great MOCs :classic:

Top three MOC’s IMO in Baroque architecture:

1. This incredible Baroque Church by @Jellyeater!

2. This amazingly detailed MOC by @pj_bosman!

3. This greatly shaped modular by @cimddwc!

Here are the three best Baroque MOC’s IMO! What do you think about them? Would you buy modulars like those if TLG made? 

Here are the Steampunk ones:

1. This incredible layout made together by @castor-troy and @domino39 (they also made one MOD of the PR and the MS and two MOD’s of the CC included in this layout. But they look so different that they are more MOC then MOD).

Great MOC selections you provided here @Digger of Bricks, those are awesome MOC’s! I already knew them except the Basilisk, that looks awesome! Also surprised to see how the tall tower and modular bank use the color scheme...

I didn’t know these neither as they’re not minifig-scale builds (which I have a bigger interest) but jeff_works is doing amazing micro builds! 

Also, I started to collect more great MOC’s, I’m so happy because while searching, I discover so many new great MOC’s! Stay tuned everyone :sweet:

I have to confess, I don't have as much to share as I wish I did, as most of time I usually search for a lot of Sci-Fi vehicular craft MOCs. Now though it's not Lego for the most part, I do have a Pinterest board of anything and everything relating to Dieselpunk/Decopunk Retrofuturistic architecture and cityscapes, which is mostly a lot of fan and/or concept art. :classic:

what a great luxury looking MOC!

What do you think about those modulars? Which ones are your favorites? Would you buy if TLG made a similar modular? Me, I would buy at least ten if they make!

Kudos to all the people mentioned here, they were courageous enough to make MOC’s from one of the hardest architectures to reproduce from Lego!

I've been keeping my eye on this one for a little while now, as I love both its detailing, and its color scheme of Earth Blue, Dark Tan, and Sand Green. I know how those at Ideas feel about modulars, being complementary with a preexisting line and all, but this one seems to stand on its own, so maybe it may have a chance if it were to reach the review stage!

All four of those, including the bank you placed at number nine I highlighted earlier. :classic:

I like all of these Art Nouveau MOC's. Think I prefer the more realistic designs so I think my fave is number 5. I really like number 1, 6 and 7 as well though. I think Art Nouveau is a real contender for a future Modular set by Lego. I would definitely buy a set like this if they released anything as beautiful and intricately detailed as any of these. :classic:

I decided to post three staff picks everyday after the trial period of this thread as it took me too much time to find MOC’s in a specific architectural style. 

@Digger of Bricks, you can continue to post MOC’s like you’re posting, you don’t need to change anything.

Hope other people will start posting their favorite MOC’s too :classic:

I would like to highlight three things for the people who want to use the new system:

-Staff picks will be posted at the end of day.

-Staff picks can be in different architectures.

-There will not be any particular order for posing staff picks.

I’ll post staff picks of yesterday that I couldn’t post. Today, the staff picks will be posted at the right time, not 15 hours later like now :grin:

 

Staff picks of 12/02/18:

Congrats to all these MOC’cers, I hope @kevin8 will continue to making MOC’s, I especially hope seeing one unique corner building which are his specialities :classic:

Here are a few DC Comic themed Art Deco creations I totally forgot about:

@LegoModularFan so are we now allowed to post MOC's on this thread without them having to fall under that day's particular design style?

If that's the case then some of my favourite MOC's I've come across on Eurobricks are basically any of the models designed by @paupadros His designs are very unique and well thought out.

Also not sure if this one might have already been posted over in the Modular Rumors and Discussion forum but I love Piazza Maria by @snaillad This thing is a work of art. I remember when rumors started going around that Assembly Square was going to be released, before the official pictures came out this reminds me of how I thought it was going to look.

Thank you!

 

I'm in a strange situation. I'm waiting for a new showcase for my Lego town. It's very huge, something like 3,5 m x 2 m. And my works on new modulars have stopped, simply because I don't have any space to  put them. But I'm still designing and I'm renewing my old ones.

So, I hope to come back, because I really miss it.

Oooh, a red building definetly seems like something to try...

This is just the best. Had never seen it, btw!

That Market Street looks wonderful! It's funny, because Alex (Brickenberg) has this great idea of the Pedestrian street, but has yet to make an amazing modular for the concept. I agree, the blue building is by far the best of the three.

That is so lovely! I always aim for a clear idea to be transmitted (clear spacings, shaping...), but hid behind scaffoldings of thundeous colour or over-the-top detailing.

My Italian Villa was inspired by it :grin:. About AS, me too! I, for some reason got hopes high we would get a yellow building

Absolutely! Just post inspirational MOC's, that's the most important :classic:

For the rest, I agree, @paupadros and @snaillad are two of my favorite MOC'cers and you can see them mentioned in this topic where I asked to my favorite MOC'cers how they were designing modulars and as they're so kind, they took time to respond!

Here's a pretty decent looking MOC I've found which is interesting because it's built entirely using pieces from 10214 Tower Bridge. The instructions to build the set are available here too.

Yes, and if you look at the Flickr of that guy, he’s simply the “Best Alternative Builder” and his alternative are waaay better than the official sets IMO!

If you are looking for MOC instructions, you can take a look at my topic where I listed tons of MOC’cers who make instructions! Hope it’ll be useful!

All three brilliant! The Gallery has an extremely complex structure, but less of an interesting colour scheme and the Tudor Style Photographer's is just brilliant all way round!

I've been looking at his Flickr and just Wow! He is a talented guy. Love his alternate build of the creator bike shop and cafe and also the MOC he has built using parts from Palace Cinema.

Yes and that’s why I like it, it’s packed with NPU throughout the build!

Yes, I completely forget about it, I would have mentioned it on my Steampunk list! It’s impressive mainly because it’s made with limited pieces!
