    Small island

    I like the bird's eye perspective here. The water effect looks good, perhaps you could try wedge plates for a less uniform color transition. I'm missing greenery on the island. I know it's a sandy desert island but the palm tree could have at least some shrubbery around. All in all, I like the build also for the simplicity.

    [MOC] Don't pick the flowers

    Thanks for the advice. It makes sense to be on the safe side. My favorite detail is the landscaping. The bright colors and mostly the pink and purples are a great touch and they really make it stand out in a positive sense. The ABS-vore plant looks great as well, I'm only surprised it's not more camouflaged. Well done.

    REVIEW: 80101 Chinese New Year's Eve Dinner

    Thanks for a great review, @WhiteFang. This is a beautiful set and what I loved the most about your review is the added details on the celebration of the Chinese New Year. It's great to hear it's a realistic set of area-specific celebrations. The set is on my wish list to buy some day (depending how widely it will be available on Bricklink). For me, this is the only minus of the set, being available in a limited region and not worldwide considering there are Chinese communities worldwide. From my point of view, the set looks great as a parts pack, with lots of intricate printed parts, lovely minifigs (floral prints and ponytails), as well as many small parts to accentuate the atmosphere. Specifically, the lamps hanging by the front door, the pear gold fences used for windows, the white porcelane vase etc. Family photos are a nice addition, too. All-in-all, the designer(s) did a great job creating such a fascinate set. Now I'm really looking forward to your reviews of additional exclusive sets.

    MOC: Gingerbread Express

    I love it, too. It's an interesting take on ''gingerbread''. I don't mind the train having less realistic details, and more icing. It's the icing that created the ''gingerbread'' feeling, and you did that great. My favourite is the cocoa mug with chocolate chip cookie.
  5. Your Modern office building looks like a great place to work at. I like the large windows letting lots of light in, and the exterior is very interesting to look at. Generally, I'm not a fan of modern architecture, but the curved shaped of this building is very appealing. Well done.

    MOC: Container House

    Amazing! Container homes are not what they used to be. I've seen many lately, turned into fancy offices as an extension to a building that cannot be extended by bricks. I really like the colorful display of angled containers. Adding hinged panels was smart to make the interior easily seen.

    [MOC] Modular Casa Brickllo

    I love it! You managed to create a stunning building with odd colorscheme and shape. My favourite section is the roof of the right building. The colorful 1x2 slopes create a nice effect mimicking the shiny and curvy roof of the original building. The facade is done nicely as well, with the addition of some colorful plates. The protruding balconies are nice and challenging detail as well. It's not easy to recreate natural curves, but you settled for a great compromise. Here's another challenge for you. Do you know how many different colors you used for the right building?

    [MOC] Apartment building

    Amazing architecture. I've seen it on Flickr and Instagram, and even after several days it's still very impressive. My favourite detail is the greeblings on the facade. With muted colors the building still pops with intricate detailing on the facade. Really looking forward to see more buildings from you.

    10264 Corner Garage

    Like it a lot! The floor plan looks spacious. The colors are neat (dark orange and sand blue windows look surprisingly well together). I'm not super excited with the garage on the ground level, but I like the cut corner, and the inset for the garage entry. This will provide more interesting plans for walking areas in modular towns. I spy some new recolors, and I guess the quest begins to find more interesting parts.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Who needs to know how to swim when you can build modulars... I'm at work till 15:00, then online to see the new modular, and only then off to go home. I work till 16:00, but I'm pretty sure I won't do any work after 15:00. Even now, I'm already refreshing this page.

    [MOC] Brickheadz Inzide Halloween

    Great idea and well done. The dracula and the XXL pumpkin brickheadz look perfect. I'm not a big fan of the brickheadz, but these two nicely build. I too prefer imaginary characters to licensed. The amount of detail on the pumpkin is spot on to create both the curved shape and colors. The accessories aka. spider and spider web are well thought of too.

    REVIEW: 10263 Winter Village Fire Station

    Thanks for the review. Actually, I still have mixed feeling about this one. It doesn't fit my view of the WV perfectly, hence I'm still undecided about getting one. The parts are not that impressive (for someone with already too-big-too-handle LEGO collection), so I actually might pass this one. However, there are some elements that look perfect for the WV style. Just to point out, the frozen fountain and the tree are my favourite mini builds, the bench with the light is already a traditional detail in the WV sets. I'm not a fan of the building, but I do like some of the details. Considering these mixed feelings, I'm pretty sure I won't be buying this set for this Christmas, but in the future...maybe.

    [REVIEW] 10268 - Vestas Wind Turbine

    Thanks for a great review. I'm glad the set is bag, as this would mean also the individual parts will be more easily available. Yes, I'm hunting those green BURPs. Actually, the set has a nice old-school feel with the cottage reminding me of the 560 Town House, but updated. I like the fact that the power functions are included, despite the large price. And as pointed out, the BURPs are a great storage/hideout for the battery box and cables.

    MOC Parrot mosaic

    I'm totally ignoring you, Kristel. Actually, I'm glad you commented on the position of the head. I added the photo I based the mosaic on, so it's a bit easier to see the parrot's posture. One of the problems I had was to decided whether to use plates, tiles or bricks. The color pallette varies between these parts, and I didn't want to splurge out on some rare parts, so I did the compromise on using the tiles, which I had plenty in various colours. That's exactly the point I hoped would be raised by the experienced mosaic builders, to hear how they would go about. I actually spent more time searching for and deciding which photo to actually use, to find a photo with a similar colour scheme to LEGO palette.
