    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 End credits: Movie Theater End credits: WyldStyle's tag End credits: Music End credits: Movie premiere End credits: Kragle End credits: Taco Tuesday End credits: Secret Police End credits: Sound stage End credits: Warehouse 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 (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?)

    @CopperTablet Here are some more views of Emmet's bathroom. A couple of notes: - My walls are the wrong color. - There are a lot of floating parts. - I heavily ad-libbed the toilet. While there's no good view of it, it's possible the toilet bowl is not brick built like mine, but instead uses part 4523 Container D-Basket as I believe some official LEGO sets use.

    @CopperTablet. I'll see what I can do to get more pics of the bathroom. In the meantime, the sink uses Window 1 x 2 x 2 without Sill (60592).

    The warehouse credits scene. This is the only credits scene to use an actual LEGO set, 3221 City Truck.
  5. I don't know how many posts I'll make in this topic, but I had an urge to at least re-create the heart machine, Moloch, from the movie Metropolis. Here's what I came up with:

    @Digger of Bricks. Wow. That would be cool. Let me think that one over and see if I come up with something.

    These are really great. Lots of detail in a small scale. Very well done.

    @NDLG80. You are cranking out these builds! That's another great one. I like how you adjusted the width. Your finished version makes more sense to me than the original. Here's the next credits scene, a green screen sound stage.

    @NDLG80 That looks great! There a lot of detail in each scene and the lighting is really well done. Get your popcorn here!

    @GLAP23. Wow, this looks great! Thanks so much for sharing! This is exactly what we needed. Now it's time to get building. @BlackStar & @STeNCH. What else do you guys need to complete your mechs?

    @NDLG80. Thanks! Looking forward to seeing more! Here's the Secret Police credits scene.

    @NDLG80. If you start on this page and read forwards, you'll see the progress of @BlackStar and @STeNCH working on their builds. I don't know how far they got. Any updates, guys? It's a big model, coming in at nearly 4,000 bricks. It doesn't have any internal support, so you'd have to add that. Let me know if you give it a try!

    @krisandkris12 Great question. I think it's at least a combination of needing a creative outlet and appreciating how clever the LEGO Movie is. The more I look, the more I want to build. We'll see how long I can keep this up... @Fitmanb That's looking great! I think it's fantastic to see everyone recreating the movie in real brick. I post my images on Flikr. Here's a tutorial: Yes, it's a Wednesday. Nevertheless, here's Taco Tuesday.
  14. 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 Cloud Cuckoo Land

    @krisandkris12. NDLG80 is researching part availability. Seeing as he's built several of the modular from The LEGO Movie, I think he may just pull it off. @x105Black & @Wout. Thanks for the comments!

    @mikaelsol You are absolutely correct! The original set 4435 uses the same window for the front and back of the car, but they used a different piece in the movie. Good one! I have updated my model to look like yours. And--you are welcome to post here any time! @NDLG80 I am amazed at how quickly you are cranking out these buildings! I wish I could see them in person. What's the next thing you are working on? Do you have an opportunity to display these anywhere for others to see? Here's the next credits scene:

    No, it's not the end, but the beginning of the end credits. Also, I have posted the other side of the Master Builder submarine in the Assembling Cloud Cuckoo Land topic (click the clouds in my signature below).

    Assembling Cloud Cuckoo Land

    @NDLG80. It would be fun to build, wouldn't it? Overall, the main structure holds together very well. On my model, I have a few floating parts; the portholes the pig's mask and cheeks, a few pieces on the tail fin, and a couple pieces of WyldStyle's graffiti. Most of these would be easy to fix with some slight substitutions. I think the main effort would be in identifying any part/color combinations that don't actually exist. I try to recreate what's on the screen and don't stop to check which parts/colors have actually been produced.

    Here's the other side. We don't get to see all of it at once in the movie.

    [MOC] Baroque Cathedral

    It always amazes me when complex buildings like this also come with a complete interior. Fantastic. As far as renders go, whether it lets you complete your vision that you wouldn't be able to build yourself, whether it's a starting point to figure out tricky details before building something physically, or whether it encourages others to build, keep on rendering. I fully appreciate the effort and the challenge in collecting all of the necessary parts to build any MOC, especially larger ones like this. However there is a lot to be said for the up front design process that allows a MOC to exist in the first place, especially one that is as well done as yours. Thanks for sharing.
  22. You have to appreciate these classic sets. They are great to see. It must be fun and satisfying to put these together.
