    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I saw the DD in the flesh for the first time today at the Manchester Lego store and I have to say the photos don’t do it justice, if I could make one change it would be to restore the classic smiley faces, I hope future modulars go back to them, they’re a cute feature that sets the modulars apart from anything else Lego produces

    MOC: Brickheadz Kirk and Spock (LDD)

    They are, good spot! They added a nice detail I thought though it meant making them one plate taller than the official ones
  3. These are my Brickheadz of Captain Kirk and Mr Spock from Star Trek. I have tried to stay as close as possible to both the look of the characters and the official Brickheadz, except for the eyes which are not currently available in LDD. If you would like to build them, the instructions are available at https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-14988/MICHAEL1/kirk-and-spock/ Thank you for looking, any comments or questions welcome!

    MOC Belfast Skyline [LDD]

    I have redesigned the set, adding more detail and improving on some of the designs. The City Hall has been given more detail and a larger grass area in front Titanic Belfast has been given lighter coloured glass and rotated 45 degrees as this better resembles the shape of the real building The Obel has also been given lighter coloured glass, more in keeping with the real building. Samson and Goliath have been completely redesigned as I was not happy with the shape of them. Also, based on some pictures taken from above, I have only seen them from the ground, I realised that the jib is actually two parallel bars and not a single piece as I thought. Samson is now also taller than Goliath, as in real life. Thank you for looking, you can still support the Belfast Skyline at; https://ideas.lego.com/projects/7ed7f858-7038-4fba-a8de-271da3e02ecd

    MOC Belfast Skyline [LDD]

    This is my addition to the Skyline series, a version of my home city Belfast. I have tried to design it to be as close to the official sets as possible in both its size and level of detail. Like the six official sets, it contains four major landmarks, which have been designed to be in proportion (as far as possible) with each other. This image was rendered from Digital Designer, as some of the pieces which would be needed do not exist in the required colours, there is also a space for the printed Belfast name plate. From left to right, they are; 1) Belfast City Hall The smallest building in the set, the City hall features some sand green elements which (to my knowledge) do not yet exist. There are many memorials and statues in the grounds of the building, but I have chosen to represent the most prominent one which is of Queen Victoria. 2) Samson and Goliath The two cranes which stand in the Harland and Wolff ship yard, in reality they are in fact different sizes, but I have chosen to make them the same height. In reality they would need printed "H & W" elements to complete them. 3) Titanic Belfast The museum to the RMS Titanic is the third building and would also need a printed "Titanic" sign on the brown piece. Beside it is the SS Nomadic, a vessel from the same era as Titanic which acts as a small museum. 4) The Obel Complex Obel Tower is Belfast's (and Ireland's) tallest building, so it was a natural choice for the set, the curved pieces for the windows do not exist in trans. blue. Outside is what locals call the 'Big Fish', an art installation. Thanks for looking, and all comments and constructive criticism are welcome!

    Winter Village Department Store

    This is my entry for the Winter Village Contest. The department store has four departments, Food, Home, Clothes and Toys. While it is at the larger end of Winter Village models, I have tried to make its design consistent with the official sets in the series using similar colours and elements such as the black lampposts. The food department has fresh fruit and vegetables, bakery, cans and cereals meat including Christmas turkey and fridges full of cartons. The home department has dishes pots and pans, mugs, a coffee machine, crystal glasses, Christmas decorations, flowers and luggage. The clothing department is mostly made up of mannequins and some other folder clothing The final department is toys, consisting of a teddy bear, space ship, a train set and other toys as well as Santa and his presents. Thank you for looking, and sorry about the bad pictures!

    Purist TV/Movie Figures

    I've been thinking of the CMF Judge, Doc Brown's hair and maybe a cape for Pertwee's Doctor, not sure what face I'd use though.

    I used Alfred from the Batman Lego for the second doctor, I used Lincoln for the eleventh doctor, as he appears in his final episodes

    What was your first major City/Town building?

    This was mine, summer 1989! It was the biggest set in my collection then, needless to say that title has long since been passed on!

    Minifigures Series 16 Guessing Game

    My bad! Maybe though we could get a more traditional look with the over shoulder kilt, or a Welsh or Irish Celt?

    Minifigures Series 16 Guessing Game

    Here are my guesses; 1. The Invisible Man, he's probably the only 'classic monster' character not done yet 2. Medieval minstrel with Lyre 3. Dentist with new drill piece and the mirror on a stick thing they use to look at the back of teeth 4. Canadian Mountee, it's been a while since we had a 'national dress' type figure 5. Cricketer 6. Bomb disposal officer, perhaps with a robot? 7. Jilted Bride, similar to the one we have but with tattered dress, wilted flowers and smudged make up (if the Groom doesn't show up soon this could be a reality) 8. The tooth fairy 9. News reporter 10. Person in dog costume 11. Celtic warrior (like Braveheart) 12. Hairdresser 13. Old British officer, like Michael Caine in Zulu (I think is old enough to be acceptable) 14. Living Statue 15. Mayor 16. Flight attendant

    With official Dr Who minifigures now on the way, these seem kind of redundant, but I thought I'd post them anyway! Twelfth Doctor Davros Dalek

    Purist TV/Movie Figures

    Jack isn't such a serious character, I would suggest a more jovial face, maybe Han Solo?
