100% Custom Layouts?

Recommended Posts

I understand the LEGO® Modular Buildings Collection is impressive and gorgeous, but it seems that every LEGO town/city is filled with these. I search on YouTube for "100% custom LEGO town" without any luck.

Growing up throughout the early 2000s, my LEGO collection consisted of 90s and 2000s. As a kid, with not so much LEGOs, my creations were simple but nice. The same goes for LEGO sets, in 2005 we saw set 7240 of the Fire Station.

LEGO towns/cities don't have to look as impressive as the LEGO® Modular Buildings Collection to gain my interest, even more simple MOCs catch my eye.

Does anyone have any mostly custom towns/cities? Or know of any?

I would love to create a 100% custom town layout. Sadly I do not have the space to set one up (I probably have the LEGO these days... :blush:)

One motto I like to live by though: Create what you want to see! Even a modest creation is beautiful.

if there is no space, you can build micro-cities :)

Hi

I recently discovered this youtube channel that seems to fit the description of what you are looking for. Its quite impressive https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTGHqw41qk_WyK3wJK7nweg

If not AFOL TV is pretty good as well but with a more North American vibe. 
 

Wow, thank you for the share! AFOL TV is cool.

Yeah, I know of the issue. I miss the LEGO years.

Yeah, that's true. I have never been so keen of micro-cities though, much preferring minifig scale.

He’s German and I can’t understand anything he’s saying because I don’t speak it but I watch it for the pictures - STEINeZEIT on YouTube.

Bevins Bricks has already been mentioned which is another fantastic one.

I don’t know if you consider this to be custom or not, but some people ‘blow up’ the modulars - buying several and combining them to create a much larger, more impressive buildings.  Bricks4Chris and Hoosier Bricks were experts at this but both seem to have deleted their channels - this Beyond The Brick video is the only evidence I can currently find:

The first part is less impressive but the giant GE, PC, CG, BB, and AS in the latter part of the video are pretty impressive imho.

It's not 100% custom, but I have been building some alternative builds lately. I placed them together in a part of my city:

On a Facebook group called 'Amazing Lego Modular Buildings' someone called Nadya shared pictures of her city. I can't share a link here, but you might find her there. Her city is filled with small Lego buildings she designed herself. I think that might be what you are looking for. Personally, I think it's one of the coolest Lego cities around!

Very long term I want to change my 3-in-1/City scale buildings into 100% custom but it's an ever ongoing process.

100% custom also doesn't need to be full of Creator Expert modular buildings to be interesting, small custom buildings can be very interesting as well, of course there are many factors involved.

Nothing wrong with big or small scales, especially the 100% custom stuff you can choose a certain scale instead of adding onto a series of sets.
