  1. Here are recreations from the town of Flatbush Gulch in The LEGO Movie.
  2. Assembling Flatbush Gulch

    The saloon This was a tricky one. I worked on this over the course of several months. It has a very irregular shape. The video game version is very different than the screen version, so it wasn't much help in filling in any hard to see areas. I'll post another view of this and then I think I'm finished with recreating the buildings of Flatbush Gulch.
  3. 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: Downtown Bricksburg and the Kragle antidote. Octan flying cube.

  4. The Town of Rock Ridge

    Rock Ridge, Rock Ridge, splendid! What a great project--and very well done!
  5. Assembling Flatbush Gulch

    @lostdriveway Thanks so much! The pig barn posted above is actually three of these smaller barns placed in a row. Both the larger and smaller versions of this barn are seen on screen.
  6. lostdriveway challenged me to create the Haunted Mansion from the LEGO Scooby Doo short, "Knight Time Terror." Here are some pics he sent me: I'm starting off with the greenhouse. Here's what I have so far: More soon!
  7. @Wesley D Does this help? I don't think this would be an officially approved technique, but it's the closest I could get to what I saw on the screen. Let me know if you have any other questions.
  8. Assembling Bricksburg

    @NDLG80. Thanks! It's 32 x 32. Whatever you end up with, it would be great to see!
  9. Assembling Bricksburg

    @gotoAndLego. Interesting thoughts. Thanks for sharing. Here's a thought: Is it possible, while attempting to be politically correct, to offend people through what is omitted? I've added buildings to the downtown plaza I originally used in my Christmas raffle entry. I'd like to show more in the image, but this pushes the boundaries of what LDD will do on my machine.

    Here's the other side.
  11. [MOC] Vignette: the Griffin monument

    You may feel your brick supply is limited, but it doesn't look that way at all. Very nice vignette!
  12. Assembling Bricksburg

    I've just about wrapped up my posts in the Old West topic. There aren't nearly as many good references of Flatbush Gulch as there are of Bricksburg, so there aren't as many models for me to build there. For now, I made a quick detour back to Octan. Here's Lord Business' flying cube from Finn's basement.
  13. Assembling Flatbush Gulch

    Here's a covered wagon.
  14. Assembling Flatbush Gulch

    @NDLG80 The submarine has been on my "to do" list for quite a while. If I can wrap up a couple other models I'm working on, I may just get to it! For now, here's the church from the center of town.
  15. The gang surprises Bad Cop with a Christmas tree made out of chairs and decorated with police paraphernalia in downtown Bricksburg. As always, thanks, CopMike for all of your work putting this together every year!
  16. Brickton harbour

    Wow. I like how each building has it's own unique personality. And so many detail that make the scene come alive. Very well done.
  17. Wasabi District 2017

    Nice looking towers! They look great together--very impressive.
  18. [MOCs] New Castle and Bethy's Castle

    Great castles! I especially like the last one. The interiors are very well done.
  19. Fantastic! So many details to explore. Really well done!
  20. Assembling Flatbush Gulch

    @NDLG80. Wow! Great job! That looks spot on! I really like seeing that built out of physical bricks. Your photography really shows it off well, too. Thanks so much for sharing!
  21. Assembling Flatbush Gulch

    Ya gotta like horses that are so well trained they don't need reigns.
  22. Long live the 4-stud wide [MOC]

    There's nothing wrong with old school. These are very creative! I like them.
