    71033 LEGO Muppets CMF Series - Rumors & Discussion

    This is so exciting since it will make a Muppet's "A Christmas Carol" display a reality in my winter village!

    Harry Potter custom builds and moc's

    I designed a MOC of Zonko's Joke Shop that uses 82% of the pieces found in the official Hogsmeade Village Visit set (76388), so you can more easily expand your village! Anyone who may be interested can find the instructions here and on my Rebrickable page.
  3. I designed a series of MOCs in the style of the Architecture Skyline series for "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy. These designs are slimmed down versions of my original MOCs to be more in line with the width and depth of the official Skyline sets. I hope you enjoy figuring out which iconic locations are represented in each skyline! For anyone who may be interested in the instructions, you can find them here and on my Rebrickable page.

    [MOC] "The Lord of the Rings" skylines

    Thanks for all the kind words! I'm definitely keeping my fingers crossed we can get more LOTR sets with the upcoming Amazon show.

    [MOC] Zonko's Joke Shop

    "...Zonko's Joke Shop's frankly dangerous.." - Percy Weasley I designed a MOC of Zonko's Joke Shop that uses 82% of the pieces found in the official Hogsmeade Village Visit set (76388), so you can easily expand your own winter village! Anyone interested can find the instructions here and on my Rebrickable page.

    Lego Architecture - rumors and discussion

    While it's a nice improvement from the original, it just strikes me as an incredibly uncreative choice from LEGO when there are endless other possibilities!

    [MOC] US Supreme Court Building

    I designed the US Supreme Court in the style of the Architecture Landmark series! Since the building is actually quite long in its depth, I took inspiration from the overall approach of the official Trafalgar Square set. The rear side of the building also features a super micro version of the famous courtroom! Let me know what you think!

    [MOC] US Supreme Court Building

    For anyone interested, I finally got around to making instructions for this build. You can find them on Rebrickable or on my own site!

    [MOC] Washington, D.C. skyline

    E pluribus unum - out of many (bricks), one (skyline!) I designed this MOC in the style of the Architecture Skyline series and features some of Washington, D.C.'s most iconic and celebrated sites, including: - The Jefferson Memorial (with Japanese Cherry Blossoms) - The Smithsonian Institution Building (aka The Castle) - The White House - The Washington Monument - The National Museum of African American History and Culture - The United States Capitol When I first built this, I was mostly eyeballing it as far as heights go. Everything turned out pretty accurate (within reason), but the Washington Monument could probably afford to lose a 1 x 1 brick at the bottom. :D Anyone interested can find the instructions here and on Rebrickable.com!
  12. As a follow-up to my Honeydukes MOC, I designed Hogsmeade's The Three Broomsticks in the style of the Winter Village series! The technique for the roofs came from the Gingerbread House set since I knew that is an exceptionally sturdy design. Anyone who may be interested in the instructions can find them here and on Rebrickable.

    10278 Police Station

    I had quite a chuckle at Chris slowing sliding the donuts over to him. I somehow never recognized the evidence locker in the previous pics - does anyone know all the Easter eggs that are included in it that they mentioned?

    [MOC] Honeydukes (Winter Village)

    I'm a big fan of the Winter Village series, so I decided to try creating Hogsmeade's famous sweet shop, Honeydukes, in the same style! Let me know what you think! Anyone who may be interested in the instructions can find them here and on Rebrickable. In addition to high quality PDF instructions, you will also receive three PNG files for the Honeydukes Logo and Font, which can be used to create your own custom stickers or custom printed tiles (from sites such as Bricksanity).

    [MOD] 123 Sesame Street Modular Building

    "Can you tell me how to get how to get to Sesame Street?" While the official 123 Sesame Street set (21324) is undoubtedly adorable, it does not easily fit into the Modular Building style. I challenged myself to convert the set into the Modular style using pieces almost entirely exclusive to the set. The only pieces that I needed to use in addition to the set's pieces were tiles for the sidewalk, two 1 x 2 brick with hole (in medium nougat), and a 16 x 32 baseplate. With the modifications, I think this design fits rather nicely alongside the official Modular Buildings! Anyone who may be interested in the instructions can find them here and on Rebrickable! Like all official Modular sets, I was able to design the building to be enclosed on all four sides. Additionally, the roof and second floor can be removed to view and access the interiors! The interiors contain many of the same memorable details from the official set (e.g. Ernie's iconic bathtub); however not all of the same details could be included since the official set's building is 6 studs wider. Below is a closer look at the front and back - since I limited myself to only using the pieces in the set, you can see the dark orange bricks from Hooper's Store needed to be used to provide a "weathered" look on the back. Now I can't wait to pick up the set and it this to my LEGO City!

    LEGO Ideas - 123 Sesame Street

  18. "Everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them, but when the world needed him most, he vanished." This is my latest MOC designed in the style of the Architecture Skyline series. It features four of the key locations from "Avatar: The Last Airbender," including: - The Southern Air Temple (with Appa and Aang's glider) [AIR] - The Northern Water Tribe [WATER] - Ba Sing Se [EARTH] - Fire Nation Royal Palace [FIRE] Let me know what you think!

    [MOC] Avatar: The Last Airbender skyline

    Thanks for all the kind feedback! I quickly fell in love with the show - I binged the entire thing in about a week and a half! I may be inspired to make more MOCs from it in the future...we'll see!

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I still feel like the entire concept of an Elf Clubhouse is out of left field, but I can't help but enjoy the overall design. I feel like the inclusion of the big computer as one of the side builds is a bit odd...

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Oddly enough, it's been reported that Downtown Diner is due to retire first. https://www.thebrickfan.com/rumored-lego-direct-to-consumer-sets-retiring-in-2020/

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I have to agree that the whole concept of an "Elf Clubhouse" is a bit strange and not an established part of winter holiday lore (near as I'm aware). But I'll try to reserve judgment until I see what exactly it is.

    [MOC] US Supreme Court Building

    Thanks for the kind words and sharing your thoughts! I've found that neoclassical pediments are always tough at this scale. For this build, I first tried out the same technique used in the Trafalgar Square set, which I think does a better job at closing the gap at the top. But very confusingly, when I built it in Bricklink Studio, the unsightly gap was still prominent. After a lot of experimentation, a simple hinge is the best solution I could come up with for now.

    2019 LEGO Architecture

    I know a lot of people were disappointed that the Paris skyline did not include Notre Dame - so I had some fun modifying the official set to include it (along with the Panthéon). The Bricklink Studio file is available for free download here: https://rebrickable.com/users/benbuildslego/mocs/
