    Modular Corner Deli MOC/Mod

    Here's the post-reno Bob's Kabobs. I took the advice and made it higher. It's still the short guy on the street, but it fits much nicer than before. I raised the whole thing a brick and a plate off the ground, and added at least a brick at each level. The roof is now about the same height as the Detective's Office, on the short side. I'll try to insert photos now. Most of these are from the first version, but the internal details barely changed. The little deli at the end of the street in Bricklyn Heights. The Bobs. Front. Rear. I am fond of my garbage can and banister.

    Very good advice. I was trying to convince myself size variance is a real thing in cities... but it won't be that hard to just add another brick height to the top floor and a few to the bottom. I'll have to tweak the back stairs, but that shouldn't be too bad. I'm also gonna raise the entire building off the baseplate by at least a plate or two. That's an easy cheat.

    Some positive feedback please.

    Yeah, the competitive angle is... weird. I don't know how I feel about it.

    Here's a link to the Flickr of my MOC/Mod of the Corner Deli, as an attempt to Modularize it. I've never done anything close to this before, so be gentle if I've made any blunders! [i just spent about 45 minutes trying to insert photos into this thread, before my computer froze on me, so I'm just linking the gallery for now. I'll add in proper photos when I have a bit more time and patience.] Thanks for looking!

    25%(ish) MOC - Corner Deli with a 4th corner

    I'm done it (as much as one can ever really be "done") and now the challenge is decent photography!

    I really like what you've done inside the place. I'm about... 75% done "modularizing" my deli (my first attempt at a LEGO project of this kind) and I may borrow some inspiration from you!

    What Lego-related thing did you do today?

    I polished up my silly little Radagast's Sled model, and plugged it into LDD, which is the test of legitimacy. And it worked, all legal-like. It's goofy, but I quite like its compact simplicty, considering I've been away from LEGO for nearly a year, and only now got to digging parts out [after a movie] to try building things again.

    Canadian Eh?

    Hey all, it's been a while. I may have missed it if it was discussed already, but has anyone seen the Mirkwood Elf Guard [30212] or Laketown Guard [30216] polybags anywhere? I'm in the GTA, and I've been paying attention locally, but I feel they've both passed me by if they were ever even available. I'd be more than pleased with a single of each of these, although 2 of the Laketown guys feels just about right to me. Anyone local see them? Have a few extra? Know who to talk to? It bums me out to no end that brand stores don't make a point of having these things in stock. Thanks!

    So Fan Expo was this weekend, and LEGO had a large display [the giganto Bag-end was swell]. I got Greg Hyland to do me up a skecth, which has become an annual thing, I guess. I tried to stump him with this one, and it almost worked [he said he never watched the show] but he still pulled of an awesome picture.

    Miskatonic Valley

    I'm resurrecting this thread to keep track of the next phase of this project. As with pretty much all Cuusoo projects, mine has stagnated into a slow, one-supporter-a-month crawl. But I've since disassembled about 99% of my sets, moved houses, started organizing the bits, and have decided that my "big project" is going to be to build a quasi-Minifigure-scale demo version of this game. Which is to say the game itself will function exactly as planned, except each of the players will be Minifigs instead of Microfigs, the locations will be much larger, and the whole thing will eat up a bunch of space. But, ideally, it'll look impressive and would be something I could, perhaps, be proud to bring and play at a local LEGO gathering or convention or what have you. To drum up support, see. But really just for fun. Regardless, it's going to involve designing and building 10 buildings, 2 locations, and a hefty Cthulhu figure. The scale might be a bit wonky, though. Not quite full Minifig scale [there's a hospital, hotel, museum, and university in there] but as large as my skills and parts will allow. Imagine a boardgame where the spaces you land on are all as big as the Haunted House... Regardless, I will begin the process in earnest and will try to keep a record of my many failures [and hopefully few successes] here.

    Special VIP Minifig Keychain?

    One showed up in my mailbox today, so they're going out to Canada as well, it seems.

    I got the Red Chrome keychain in the mail today! Aahh! LEGO loves me. Anyone else get sent one of these things?

    So here's a question: I got one of these LEGO Store Holiday Pick-a-Brick boxes from around the Christmas promotion or whenever it was. The one that says you can come in from December to March. Anyway, I got it in a bundle of stuff through this other deal, and was thinking of giving it a go, but now I'm paranoid maybe the box has already been used. Is there some way to know or check? I'd hate to go in there and be told the box had already been filled. Thanks for the insite.
  14. I liked Season 1-8 for the relatively flat rarity. They were easy [and therefor fun] to collect. Series 9 has some oddly shifted rarities in it which are annoying, but hardly a deal-breaker and not that tought to work-around. Adding a chase level figure is gonna kill it for me, though. Or at least kill the completionist thing. I can't reliably expect to get the golden figure [as I'm not buying a case], ergo, why bother getting all of the set at all? There's probably 4 or 5 figures from seasons 1-9 I have simply to finish those sets. Which will become [potentially] an impossibility with a chase figure. So maybe in the long run I like the Golden Guy, 'cause it'll break me of the habit a little bit.

    LOTR Beneficial to Pirates?

    Hrrmm. Maybe I can convince one of you Pirate lads who also happen to have no interest in A] LOTR figures or B] makin' profits to sell me the three ghost figures and Peter Jackson from this set on the cheap. It's a neat looking boat, and a new design for LEGO ships from what I can recall, but I know it's gonna be far too rich [and space-consuming] for my blood.
