Right then, my entry is for the computer programmer/nerd (I always call him the nerd, I don't know why), and I've created his dream room, which features every nerds favorite game, Minecraft.


The room also has a replica Mario hat (probably from Forbidden Planet), a minecraft-themed table made of dirt blocks, and one of his many medals from winning gaming contests.

Here's a closer look at the desk:


I hope you like it! :laugh:

Minifig: Grandma's visitor

Theme: Monster Fighers (or if that's too specific, then Fantasy)

Caption: Oh my, should've looked at the Best Before date.

Or: Can anybody get me that Pepto-Bismol?

My entry is going to be the Daredevil, from the Racers theme.

He seriously misjudged his abilities, and came up a bit short on the jump.




Its a very delicate MOC, since the ramp isn't really connected to anything. It takes a minute or two to position the bike on it, since its not connected to anything either.

Here's a link to more pics.

My entry is a path through woods, where there's almost no sun coming through the bushy tree branches. Vignette is heavily inspired by the fairytale The Little Red Riding Hood, and as such I'd classify it as Fantasy. Grandma visitor (CMF series 7) typically takes the short cut through the woods on her way to grandma's.


Perspective from the top shows the bushy branches.


Additional photos (including with Grandma's visitor) can be seen on my Flickr account.

Here is my entry for the contest.

Minifig: Computer Programmer

Theme: City

This is one of hundreds of cubicals. I am sure many of us spend more time in one of these then with our own families.

If TLG was to release this MOC as a set, AFOLs and TFOLs could customize the name on the side of the pod. Mike is for Michael Bolton in Office Space. The back and one side also have points where additional office cubes can be attached.




I really enjoyed making my MOC. The contest constraints were ideal to unleashing creativity. Without them, I would also want to build larger and never actually start building.

Here is my ULTRA awesome Lego rockband. It is made for the Lego rocker girl so that's why the band is missing the guitarist. Also another note sorry about the horrible images. I did them in a hurry. Also thanks to TLG and everyone else that made this awesome contest possible.

The Costume Shop.

As it always seems to be during this time of year, the Easter Bunny costume is always on back order.

Title: Day at the Lake

Minifigure: Hippy

Theme: Micro Town

These two decided to take a day away from their day jobs; they drove their bright red VW camper van (used with permission from flickr user Ochre Jelly) to a peaceful lake. The huge sun beats down on them as they hope for the fluffy clouds to move in the way to create some shade.




Thanks for looking! You can view more of my entries here: flickr

Entry: "Free Comic Book Day"

Minifigure: Computer Programmer

Theme: City (with a hint of Super Heroes and Star Wars)

On May 4, 2013, the Computer Programmer rushes down to his local comic shop for free comic book day! Comic writer Cullen Bunn is autographing a stack of books, and members of the local 501st Legion are out for photos. Too bad the programmer converted his comic collection to digital files--but he's hoping he can get his laptop autographed anyway!

For those of you outside countries that do it, "Free Comic Book Day" is a real event that's held every year at comic shops, and it really will be on May 4 this year. The scene below is modeled on the shop I frequent, Third Eye Comics in Annapolis, Maryland. They really are having Cullen Bunn and the 501st Legion in the store that day, so I had to throw them in! The Computer Programmer will go on the two studs next to the Stormtrooper.

this is my MOC, inspired to Jungle Boy minifig :)

This theme is "modular", so as showed in picture, can be divided into two modules: top (the cavern house), and bottom (the underground river)

Also the top of this MOC can be opened to reveal the lair of the snake.

For a complete gallery (the left side is different from the right) and some internal details, please see my flickr account.

I hope You like it!

At first glance you'd think my entry was for the diver, but it's not, it's for the Daredevil. I'm calling him Randy. I don't know why. He's diving into a bucket of water and we've got a doctor standing by in case... well... you know. You can find more pictures which include Randy himself here. I'd say this a City theme.

Identity Theft

Minifig: Computer Programmer

Theme: Town

ShadowForge87 (or Dave to his friends and family) walked into the Internet Cafe and looked around. His laptop had run out of power and he'd forgotten to bring his power cable, so this place was his only choice if he wanted to get online.

Sitting down at the nearest desk, he entered the login details he'd been given by the pale looking assistent and waited. This could take a while, he thought, considering the computer looked like something out of the 90s, but within a few seconds he was logged in.

Before he began visiting his usual sites, like BrickLink and Eurobricks, he'd better check to make sure there was nothing running that would track his actions. He was all too aware of the dangers of identity theft and you couldn't be too careful in a place like this.

In the basement of the Internet Cafe, another computer screen flared into life:

... Terminal 2 Activated ...

... Cloning Facility Online ...

... Cloning Process Initiated ...


The Computer Programmer minifig sits in the chair, whilst his cup stands on the single stud on the desk and the laptop is placed between the cup and the divider.


To be clear, the minifig in the basement is not a placeholder for the Computer Programmer minifig, but an 'in progress' clone being created from the Computer Programmer sat in the Internet Cafe above. Also, all of the parts used to create the clone are parts which are available from other minifigs / sets, even the 'Bright Light Blue' arm (Series 4 Ice Skater or NRG Zane).


Check out the full set on Flickr for alternate angles and photos of the vignette with the Computer Programmer minifig and accessories included.

Minifig: Computer Programmer

Theme: Town

Since he'd found Mr Gold, the programmer was sure of victory in the Eurobricks Collectable LEGO Minifigures Series 10 Building Contest! All that remained was to take the photos against a nice white background and upload them.


You can see the programmer and mug included here.
