    Modular Pub – alternate build for 10264 Corner Garage

    Great work! I wouldn't have thought it was possible to make such nice and completely different buildings out of an official modular building. You must be very skilled to limit yourself to the parts of the original set and give all those parts a new place. I'm really impressed!

    That 1x3x2 inverted arch (18653) is indeed essential, as is the 2x1x2 slope (60481). The original townhouse has a 2x2 turntable base (3680) above the front door, that was easily replaced by a 2x2 plate with one stud (87580) that exists in multiple colors. At the moment I'm done with building rowhouses, but I can't garantee I could resist trying other colors when the required combinations would become available!

    Here is my row of painted rowhouses based on 10270 Bookshop:

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I guess it will come in the first months of 2021, when the new modular building is available. I'm really looking forward to that car, just like the sailboat that I expect next summer! Just like every autumn I feel my enthousiasm is growing to discover the new modular building! I hope for a police station as it has been a while since the last governmental building.
  5. If anything, the continuous spawning of big sets has made me more selective. I don't feel that bad anymore about missing out on a set. It has become impossible, or rather irresponsible, to go for everything that catches my attention. Furthermore the fast rate the sets are coming at feeds the expectation that sooner or later there will come sets that will be more advanced, better or appeal to me even more.
  6. As there have been numerous examples of nicely designed backgrounds for LEGO sets, I'm not a fan of the black boxes. I can appreciate the last one 10275 Elf Club House as it still looks a bit joyfull with the minifigures and builds on a winter night northpole setting, but I've held 10277 Crocodile Locomotive in my hands and I thought it felt plain dead.

    LEGO Sci-Fi 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    In october a new book about minifigures will be released. LEGO Minifigure A Visual History New Edition comes with an exclusive minifigure: an orange classic spaceman. As the book is pretty expensive, could there be any other way to obtain more of those spacemen?
  8. I really hope not, as castles, especially some of those you mentioned, would be more popular in more age groups than a blacksmith in the castle theme. I like the original submission of the blacksmith, but I think it's too big to represent a medieval building and I would be thankfull if the designers shrinked it or, even better, turned it into a small medieval village.

    Lego City 2021 Rumours, information and discussion

    I am open for such a new, more customizable road system and I see how it offers a lot of benefits, but I fear it will get expensive (starting with replacing the old road plates) and it bothers me the road level will be 2 plates high, higher than the pavement that comes with the modulars. I wonder the 2021 modular building will have another base, like plates instead of the regular baseplate. I'm not sure it will happen as it would drive up the price of the set, without visual result. If they would change, I know how to use my free time by adapting the previous modulars to new standards!

    That house is a nice addition to your town! It looks cosy and warm. The European style fits well with your town.

    Who IS this guy??

    Hence the toilet in the bow of the wrecked Black Seas Barracuda in set 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay! There is no trace of Steve, but that bucket has to be his!

    [MOC] Asterix & Obelix on LEGO Ideas

    [MOC] Castle of Lord Afol

    When I saw your creation on LEGO IDEAS I was immediately hyped. The castle looks substantional, it is polished, packed with detail and has the nice feeling of classic castle! It looks it could be an official set right away! It is a pleasure to browse the pictures! Great job! I wish you good luck on LEGO IDEAS! I really hope the castle will make it!
  14. When I saw the forestman statue, I too started thinking it could be a hint your project was making it in an official set. There have been hints to future sets in LEGO sets, but they're barely predictable. We'll have to wait and see. Do you know when we can expect the results of the review? It is a fantastic submission and I think it has a great chance! I really hope The Castle in the Forest will make it!

    Birth of a new Lego city [UPDATE #24 Overpass completed! ]

    Those are some fitting names for your city! The way you have set up your coastal city I especially like Brickpoint, because of the sighting point above the beach, and Brickport, as such a big bridge is fitting with a harbor nearby. It can be refreshing to take a break from a project. Focus on your other interests for a while, it could lead to new ideas for your LEGO project!
