    I am the shield that guards the realms of men

    I'm sorry, but what does this have to do with Lego specifically?

    LEGO Brick Sketches 2020

    To me these are just as useless as Brickheadz. I wouldn't want them even as a gift or for parts.

    What are the characteristics of a Modular Building?

    I would add that there needs to be a way for the figures to get between the floors like stairs, fire escape, escalator or elevator.

    [MOC/AB] Ice Cream Shop

    I have been critical of your builds in the past but honestly I was surprised by this build. Good concept and great use of a readily available set. I can see your skill is improving as a builder. This looks like a lot of the mom and pop ice cream shops in the small towns near me. For that reason I would say make it a walk up with that large sliding window rather than a drive thru. Although I'm sure if you wanted you could easily make a drive thru on one of the sides of the building. Whichever works best for your Lego city is what you should do. Keep building and sharing!

    Top 10 Sets for a City Layout

    That retired while I was in my dark ages. Found it for a decent price last year thru Craigslist in the Chicago area. Same with the 3221 Lego semi trucks.

    I actually have three of the 3221 sets. I have the one you linked to and I have the Toys R Us set 7848. I have a few Lego store sets plus I modified the top floor of the Grand Emporium to be a Lego Store.

    A lot of good sets there but in my opinion every Lego city should have City set 3221 - Lego semi.

    DC Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I bought every set from TLBM, every wave and multiples of the CMF's. They are ridiculously out of scale with the other DC sets but they are to this day the best figures and sets for all of DC. Only others ones that come close for me are the 2006-2008 waves. Unfortunately I was in the dark ages then. I have picked up all of the 2006 sets except the USC Batmobile. Id love to find the tumbler and joker van set though.

    Happy Easter Everyone!

    Simple yet profound, the empty garden tomb. Excellent reminder of the real reason to celebrate Easter, devoid of all the commercialized aspects. He is rise indeed.
  10. I bought a complete series of DC Comics the first day it arrived locally. When my kids (I have 6) saw them each one said they wanted to have certain figures also. I should have just bought a box, but I didn't realise how much my kids would like them. Now I have been going back to the store every couple days to acquire the desired figures but the store keeps selling out shortly after the new box is opened. So DC may not be something you like but it is not just sitting on the shelves around here. They cannot keep them in stock, which is a good problem to me. Disney series 2 is still warming the shelves at most local stores and a few still have series 19.

    ( MOC ) Police Building ( Rebuild )

    This is EPIC! So many characters and details and stories going on. The lower level garage with holding cells is my favorite part. This really is great. I even love the mostly blue exterior. Thanks for sharing it!

    Worth getting Lego 60204? (City Hospital)

    That looks like way more than 2 sets.....I also bought 2 to make a modular but yours appears to be substantially larger.

    DC Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Stopped at the local Walmart after work last night. They are a bit more difficult to feel for but I picked up a complete set of 16, extra Batmite, extra lanterns and a Flash. Took about half an hour but was a recently opened box and no one else was around. They were marked at $3.44 as others have said.

    MOC City Pizza Restaurant

    You're initial MOC looked similar to the Toys R Us building in set 7848. And while a lot of buildings have a similar shape they can definitely stand out. The update you posted shows that as it adds much needed character to further define its purpose. I like where you are going with it and look forward to seeing what you do next!
