Lego Ideas Support Thread - Historical/Castle

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Those oversized medieval inns and such don't really appeal to me compared to the more Set-sized builds and Castles.

Size isn't everything.

Nothing too spectacular, but here's another new consideration-worthy project for the index @leafan:classic:

Well, even if an entry is a bit overkill in the grebbling department (as goes for most quality medieval creations), all Lego would have to do is scale that complexity back just a little to bring it into a more viable format (kinda like the treatment Lego gave Peter Reid's Exo-Suit).

I mean, the way I see it, it's better to give Lego more to work upon rather than less. :classic:

I agree, but there still ought to be a certain amount of restraint. How LEGO redesigns Ideas projects into sets often depends not just on what they can or can't do in terms of costs and logistics, but also what they think it was about the original project that the most people were drawn to. If a project is so huge, complex, or elaborate that people are supporting it for those very reasons, it becomes increasingly difficult for designers to simplify it or scale it down in a way that doesn't eliminate what supporters liked about it in the first place.

Kinda true, as such changes even affected Pete Reid's original submission where it lost some of it's more appealing proportions in the finalized product.

Great thread with some great MOCs!  There were some nice castle MOCs I would have missed if I didn’t see this thread so thanks for creating it @leafan!

Just wanted to highlight again this project as it only needs 10 more supporters to have a new time extension but it only has 9 remaining days now so... Please support it and share it! :classic:

Medieval Market by TheLordOfBricks

I totally love @TheLordOfBricks‘ MOCs, he’s one of my favorite castle MOCers so it makes me really happy to see he uploads his MOCs on LEGO Ideas! Check out his latest MOC:

What an interesting project! Reminds me of @spaceman76’s MOCs:

Also an idea: what about making this thread a complete inspiration thread: not only Ideas I mean, just inspirational MOCs. @leafan?

(Pretty sure Soren has a Eurobricks account as well but couldn’t find it, maybe @Digger of Bricks knows it?)

Why indeed I do, his Eurobricks alias is @spaceman76:wink:
