    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    An interesting new contest has just been launched on LEGO Ideas. They want people to design a vintage car to go alongside the modular buildings and the winning design will be turned in to a future gift with purchase set.

    Hey thanks @paupadros . It was great to see it featured in Blocks mag, even though it's over a year since I first designed this MOC.

    [MOC] Lion Pub

    A great looking modular with tonnes of details. I really like the texture you've created on the roofline and the taxi looks really good too. It really captures the busy and bustling atmosphere of a British Pub. Dang, it make me thirsty just looking at it.

    The Queen Bricktoria has been featured in the latest issue of Blocks Magazine (issue 60). It's a double page spread and a an interview with me talking about the design of the model. Also, I just wanted to post these pictures of a completed brick built version of the model. Thanks again @Miczur for sending me these pics.

    Woohoo!!! So glad Pirate Bay has made the cut Also the Piano. Really interested to see how these sets turn out once the Lego designers have worked their magic on them.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Has the train station been retired? It's still available from amazon UK. I'm also gonna wait and pick up the gingerbread house when the Christmas promotion becomes available. I think last year there were 2 seasonal gifts with purchase. One was given away on the week leading up to Black Friday and the second one was during December.

    Promobricks has revealed the new Christmas gift with purchase set for this year. A Christmas tree with train running around the base. It looks pretty good.

    I've just sent Lego Ideas an email about it. Hoping they can fix it before the weekend.

    @Modeltrainman and @Elysiumfountain I am having the same problem with not being able to access my profile page. I've checked and this doesn't seem to be the case with everyone though. You can still access the profile page of some members but not other. How strange, hope it gets fixed soon.

    [MOC] Baseplate Alley

    Wow! I first saw this on Flickr earlier this morning, and I must say it looks very nice indeed. The whole model looks very polished and it's clear you have spent a lot of time getting this one just perfect. The most striking thing to me is the way you've set the front walls at an angle. It looks really fantastic and I don't think I've ever seen anyone do this in the same way before. Also I love the colour scheme, it's very bright in your typical style, yet the colours all work together really well. The various blues and oranges are a lovely combination and the stripey building on the right really pops. Other things I really like are the curved stairs and the way you've created a narrow alleyway at the side in a similar effect to Downtown Diner. Your renders also look amazing, especially the interior shots using the depth of field effect. Are these rendered using the native mecabricks rendering system or have you made them externally using Blender? Finally, I'm flattered that you decided to use my typewriter build from my Lego Ideas Police Station.

    Here is a picture showing the work in progress of building the brick version of this model. Thanks very much @Miczur for sending me this picture. Thanks very much. Glad you like it. Thanks very much for these ideas. In the end I chose to use simple 2x2 plates with their backs showing. This was the best way I could find to create a similar appearance to the original digital model.

    INSTRUCTIONS NOW AVAILABLE I'm pleased to say the instructions for The Queen Bricktoria are available now. I've had to make a few subtle adjustments to the design as some of the parts and colours in the original version were unavailable. One of the main changes was to the parts used to create the textured effect on the roof line, but I think it still resembles the original version pretty closely. Once again I teamed up with @supertruper1988 of "Cam's Brick" to create these instructions, and I must say a massive thanks as he has done a tremendous job of working out all the steps and setting up the instructions. Anyway here are a few pics showing how the buildable version of the model looks. The instructions are available now from Rebrickable. The Queen Bricktoria Instructions

    Maybe they will both be retired. Last year Brick Bank and Detectives Office were retired at the same time.
