  1. Here are recreations from the town of Flatbush Gulch in The LEGO Movie.
  2. 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.
  3. Wasabi District 2017

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

    Great castles! I especially like the last one. The interiors are very well done.
  5. Fantastic! So many details to explore. Really well done!
  6. 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!

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

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

    @Klaus-Dieter Thanks for the comment! Here's the back of the wagon.

    @SilentWolf Thanks! You can see more recreations from the LEGO Movie if you click the movie logo in my signature below. There's also more coming here, too. For now, here's another view of WyldStyle's pig cart.
  11. 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: Octan offices. Nathan Sawaya's Oscar statue from the 2015 Academy Awards.

  12. Assembling Flatbush Gulch

    @NDLG80 Thanks so much! WyldStyle's cart ended up being less challenging than I originally thought. It had a good number of views from all angles in the movie and that always helps. I didn't have to go digging for alternate image sources. I know of one floating part above the back right wheel. Other than that, everything is pretty well attached. It needs only a little bit of a chassis added and it should hold together well. @Jim Thanks! Any contest sounds great! Here's another angle of the wagon. I'll post more.
  13. Assembling Bricksburg

    For those who are interested, I just posted a pic of WyldStyle's pig wagon in my Old West topic.
  14. Assembling Flatbush Gulch

    I've wanted to do this one for quite some time. Here's WyldStyle's pig wagon. If you look in the center of the wagon, you'll see part 30163 Mummy Coffin. This wagon is literally a coffin on wheels.
  15. Assembling Flatbush Gulch

    Yup. I goofed.... It's fixed now.
  16. Assembling Bricksburg

    @Hart New Bob I'm not entirely sure, but I think I just might quite possibly be offended by that... ;-) @koalayummies. Thanks again. And... Ya got me... I called the town by the wrong name. It's fixed now.
  17. Assembling Bricksburg

    Were we being politically incorrect about being politically incorrect? P.S. I'm easily offended by jets.
  18. Assembling Bricksburg

    @Hart New Bob. I don't know about TLG's rules, but it seems to be more and more politically incorrect to offend anyone religiously, unintentionally or otherwise. That may be why the only church set LEGO released was back in the 1950's. I have added a render of the water tower with Hot Tub Harry in my old west topic. It's guaranteed to be free of offending religious content and may only offend those who are easily upset by farts and potty trained pigs. Enjoy!
  19. Assembling Flatbush Gulch

    @NDLG80. Thanks! I'm working on both of those and hope to post images soon. It would be great to see a physical saloon built. It's surprisingly large--almost 90 studs wide and 60 bricks high. Right now, I'm at 7,500 bricks and I'm not done with it. @pantelis. Thanks! There's more to come... This is Hot Tub Harry and his bubbles in the water tower. Not sure who's with the pig, but it's good to see it's potty trained...
  20. Assembling Bricksburg

    @Hart New Bob I look back at what I've built over the last three years and it sure adds up, doesn't it? LEGO had one church set back in 1958. I guess it has become politically incorrect since then to include them... Still, I'm glad they did, even if it is devoid of all iconography. @theironpotato I worked on this one on and off for almost a year. I tend to work on several models at once and go back and forth between them. @Kapp Thanks! I'm still working on a few more that I hope you enjoy. I still have a few more Bricksburg and Octan builds to complete and post. For now, I'm taking a detour into the Old West to Flatbush Gulch. Check out the link in my signature below!
  21. Assembling Bricksburg

    @DanK. Emmet's mech has a number of unattached, floating parts, including the wheels on the feet. Making the mech stand up in a physical build will take a little work. @theironpotato. The couple LDD files that I have posted are called out below the associated images. All of the images link to Flikr. This is the Octan control room.
  22. [MOD] Laundromat Modular 16-wide from Brick Bank

    A great MOC and a great story to go along with it! Very entertaining!
  23. This is a project I started as part of the Assembling Bricksburg topic in the LEGO Town forum. @lostdriveway brought it up as something to re-create from the movie and @Electricsteam suggested I post it here in the train forum. So, now that it's done, here it is: As far as I can tell, none of the cars on this train use bogies. Even if they did have bogies, the details on the side of the cars would prevent any of them from turning. All of the buffers are brick built. I'll post more pics soon of the other side of the engine and the other cars--all except for the caboose--the movie never shows it clearly and I can't find any other good references for it.
