  1. What a wonderfully thoughtful gift! I'm sure it will bring her many memories for years to come.
  2. I have a handful of models from Cloud Cuckoo Land that I've wanted to do. Here's the first one. Stick around, there's more to come!

    Assembling Bricksburg

    edited to put all final images in the first post... After seeing the LEGO movie, I wanted to re-create buildings from Emmet's neighborhood. While researching, I realized a great deal of what was in the movie was based on previously-existing sets. I thought it would be interesting to do a project that compared the original LEGO sets to the modified movie versions. Knowing how much time, money, and physical space it would take to build these out of real bricks, I decided to try my hand at LEGO Digital Designer (LDD). After having created a couple of the buildings in LDD, I ran across the post for Bluerender and used it to generate photo-real renderings. Here are my results: .lxf file: http://www.brickshel...logo_final_.lxf The latest image posts: End Title Concept LEGO Movie 2 logo The latest WIP of Emmet's Mech (with BlackStar): .lxf file: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Xon67/Movie/movie_emmetsmech_2017-07-20.lxf Emmet's apartment Emmet's apartment interior How Emmet fits a 50-stud-wide apartment into a 30-stud-wide building: A variation on Emmet's apartment (green with a slanted roof) Pet Store (right) Pet Store (left) Plumber Joe's apartment .lxf file: http://www.brickshel...the_plumber.lxf Condemned building Fresh Fruit market Sherrie Scratchen-Post's apartment Emmet's street Emmet's street in micro scale Fire Brigade .lxf file: http://www.brickshel...ire_brigade.lxf Fire Brigade tower (original) Fire Brigade Tower (updated) Filling Station Garage Street Corner Rooftop garden 1 Rooftop garden 2 An example of the reuse of building parts Warehouse 1 Warehouse 2 (Fire Brigade) Mega Green Grocer Bricksburg Castle Bricksburg Castle back Cafe Corner / hotel with clock tower Fish (market?/restaurant?)

    @BrickJagger. I have a mutant ability to levitate ABS. ;-P Here's the last of the Octan invasion flyers. Next up--The Master Builder submarine!

    @Fitmanb. @CopperTablet. My builds attempt to recreate what is on-screen as closely as possible. Often, that means choosing part/color combinations that don't exist in real LEGO parts. Making them physically means having to make the choice of either substituting in other parts/colors or using paint to match the color seen in the movie. Fitmanb -- My large crawler crane doesn't have an under carriage. The "wheels" that the treads go on are floating (just like in the movie). Also, I'm not sure how well the crane part itself would hold up--it uses small clips in the bends of the crane arm. It would be more work to figure out how to get this to work physically than other models. This was one of my favorite models from the movie and I would like to see it in physical bricks, too. I just haven't taken the time to figure out the structural issues. @NDLG80. Thanks for chiming in on the subject! Also, your apartment building looks spot-on. Thanks so much for posting pictures!

    I always like seeing a lot of interior detail like this. VERY well done! ...and it includes two double-decker couches!

    @BrickJagger. Here you go. Hope this helps. @x105Black. They certainly are whimsical, aren't they? A lot of fun in just a few bricks.

    @koalayummies. Thanks! I plan on only posting a few builds in this topic. I won't have as many models as the other topics. @NDLG80. Yep! The submarine is coming! @anothergol. Ducks everywhere! Thanks for sharing. Here's one of the Master Builder flyers from Metal Beard's tales of woe.

    @NDLG80. VERY nice! What a great idea! I'm already imagining what's on the inside--I look forward to seeing it. Have you thought about adding a swirling vortex at the base?

    @Feng-huang0296. I call it Ducky Momo as well! I didn't know how many other people would catch that reference. Yep, it's in the movie. The entire cast is standing on the head of Ducky Momo when WyldStyle says, "You just said, "no," like, a thousand times," and Batman says, "I hate this place."

    Thanks, @Robert8 I have started a new topic for Cloud Cuckoo Land. The link is in my signature. I have a few builds that I plan to post there. If all goes well, we should eventually have an appearance by a certain Master Builder submarine.

    Before the creators of the LEGO Movie settled on the final design of the closing credits, with each scene presented in an individual "cubby", one thought was to have each scene combined into one seamless sequence that looked like this. To see more on the design process for the closing credits, check out: http://www.artofthetitle.com/title/the-lego-movie/

    @NDLG80. You beat me to it! It looks great! I like that scale. I used some forced perspective to get the subtitle in there at the correct size. It's coming! Don't know if I'll build any models from it, but if it's as cleverly written as the first one, it should be enjoyable.

    This is the train bridge from Finn's basement. The one in Bricksburg is slightly different, with evenly spaced supports and a few additional details. (However, I couldn't find any good references for that version). So, here's the one from the physical set.

    What a great design! And the fact that it has a full interior takes it to another level entirely. Really cool. The rocket going up the center is a nice touch. You included a lot of details that are fun to explore.

    @ionman99. I just saw these! (I haven't been watching this topic lately.) They look awesome! I always enjoy seeing physical builds of stuff I post here. Great job!

    @NDLG80. No worries! It's all good. @ionman99. I'm impressed by the parts you have on hand without having made an order yet. More! We wanna see more! :-)

    @ionman99. Glad to help! I'm pleasantly surprised at the attention WyldStyle's wagon has received, especially since it's been more than for years since the movie came out. Here ya go!
