(WIP) Cyberpunk City MOC

Hello everyone, I would like to present to you my Cyberpunk City MOC inspired by Ninjago City and envisioned after going to a local LEGO convention. I don’t have a cool name for the city yet. I would like to get this MOC finished by next summer. The buildings are modular-esque. The buildings currently include a grocery store, a garage, a Chinese restaurant, a police station and an ice cream parlor. I am not yet sure what other buildings I’ll put in this MOC. The police station is going to be two stories and I’ll have a second story of shops above the section with the ice cream parlor.  I am also not focusing on making interiors for these buildings even if there are some details inside.

The next part of this MOC is a police cruiser. It is a modified version of the police car in 70802 Bad Cop’s Pursuit with swapped parts and substitutions.

The second vehicle build in this MOC is a transport truck. It is a heavily modified version of 7686 Helicopter Transporter. I am planning on adding a trailer of some sort to it.

That is all I have got so far. I hope you enjoy the progress so far. I have had a good time working on this MOC for the least few months and can’t wait to keep working on it.

Also, @leafan because he wanted to see this.

It's really good Henry.

I think it's like a futuristic Mos Eisley from Star Wars; filled with all sorts of shady characters and aliens.

I particularly like the futuristic Transport Truck.

I could see have a layer below this city as a criminal sewer hideout.

Thanks leafan,

Thanks. I didn’t think of it as a futuristic Mos Eisley, but since you mentioned, I can see it now and really like that. I too, like the Transport Truck. I might consider putting a layer below the city, it might be difficult considering the main build is built on base plates. Thanks for taking the time to check out my MOC.

Well if you decided to do it, a sewer level could have a larger circumference than your existing baseplates, then raise up to surround it providing a 'lip' of sorts. Then you could build sewer drains into the lip for entrance (and exits) for the people.

That’s a pretty good idea. Thanks!

I am liking the looks of this! The mixed figures make for a good population that tells you it is a future world. 

Do you have plans to add lights of any kind to the build?

Also, you can connect baseplates to a lower layer of build:

99780.png Some of these need to be on the top of whatever makes up the bottom layer. Then any regular plate must be on top of it.

99781.png Some of these need to be on the baseplate, with a plates-width between them and the baseplate (so layer one under it). Put the baseplate over the lower build section and match these SNOT parts to the SNOT on the lower build, then it is a simple case of connecting them to keep them secure.

If you want, I can scratch build something on one of the building programmes to show what I mean.

I wasn't planning on adding lights, but I might. I would very much appreciate if you did a quick MOC-up. I think I got the gist of it but a visual would help.

Oh I love It! I was actually going to say that it looks like it was inspired by Ninjago city before I read the caption so you got that across very well. also as for what Peppermint said, essentially a baseplate is the same thickness and a standard plate if you rest it on top of studs. so if you just set the baseplate on top of whatever you want to attach it to and place a regular plate right next to it then the studs of the baseplate will be level with the studs of the regular plate. I'll see if I can add a picture.

Edit: Sorry I'm having trouble uploading a pic but here's a link to it.

I’m glad you like it. I really appreciate you giving a reference photo. If I do go ahead and make a “basement” level then I will certainly utilize this. Thanks a bunch!

I have rendered the build:

Hopefully that makes sense :grin:.

Baseplates are slightly out-of-system unless you go up from them, but with some SNOT and use of plates, then you can put them wherever you want. 

Of course, you need a few more around the build to keep it stable.

That makes sense to me. That’s a really awesome technique I did not know existed. Thank you for taking the time to render that to show me. :classic:

This is cool stuff, nice level of detail on your buildings, lively scene too. You have some very nice figure combos as well!

Thanks a bunch. I had a lot of fun just putting the minifigures together.

Very well made ...this diorama reminds me the novels of William Gibson about cyberspace! 

I love the sushi bar and the orange truck!

Thank you for checking it out. I’m glad you like it.
