    MOC Coral reef

    Thanks for the nice comments, everyone. I figured it's less heavy on the topic if I says thanks to everyone in one post without all the quotes. To answer a bit, I've seen those brushes used as ''plants'' before, but a long time ago (unfortunately, I don't remember the exact MOC). But many of the parts and colors were collected over the years to build an underwater MOC someday. Considering all the new bright LEGO colors are hard to combine in one build, this is probably the exception to mixing the colors.

    [MOC] Bakery & Toy Store

    To be honest, your Bakery and Toy store doesn't really fit in with town house from the Book shop. Very simply put, it's so much bigger and has a so much more detailed facade. Well, the backside of the building fits more in with the official modulars, but the front of the building is stunning. First of all, a good picture does a great job, and it's very easy to enjoy all the interesting details and unusual parts that in the end make a great design. I didn't even notice sand red roof details, as I was too occupied with the intricate facade. I like the symmetry of the buiding, SNOT detailing and lots of patterns on the exterior walls. Combining those technic ''pillars'', quarter tiles, grills, round 1x1 plates and the multilayered arches above the store entrance makes a great effect. Also, the lamp post is well built and fits in with the detailed front. Great job also on the interiors, my favourite are probably the bakery and toy store. Congratulations, really well built.

    [MOC] In the garden...

    Lovely garden, with lots of work to do around. There's a lot of interesting details, like those Scala (I think?) bottles in the crate near the cottage, the scarecrow and the water pump. What I like the most is that even after several times inspecting the photo, there are still details poping out, like the use of dk orange weird door part from the Hidden side set, or the snake behind the glass house. Well done.

    MOC: IKEA Bygglek tiny apartment

    Such a fun build. The under-bed storage is my favourite detail. It has the IKEA vibe all over - an efficient storage in tight spaces. I haven't seen those IKEA boxes in person yet, and I have somewhat mixed feelings on how to use them (if owning them). But seeing your creation, it looks also like a nice travel options for kids to play with. With the apartment nicely stored away, and then taken out for some action and play.

    [MOC] King Lennox's Castle

    Nice design and I didn't recognize it as render at first. Well done. It has that classic castle vibe, but it uses more modern parts and techniques. As it looks, it has many play functions and activities included. However, my favourite details is the fountain well and the greenery behind.

    [MOC] The MONT-BLANC massif

    The Mont Blanc massive looks impressive in LEGO form. I like how in some areas, the transition from high to low areas is very smooth, and I can easily imagine the snow slowly making its way further down to the valleys. What's even more impressive, is the amount of work and planning behind the scenes. Comparison of real mountain peaks to brick-built peaks is awesome. For those, who haven't been close to French Alps, a comparison really helps in seeing how accurately you managed to catch the shape of the mountains. Well done.

    MOC Coral reef

    The inspiration for this little MOC came from the bright light yellow brick (47115). The odd-shaped brick reminded me of the old baseplates which were 1 brick thick, and I thought of it as a base for something. Since I was taking apart my previous coral reef inspired MOC, I started imagining this bright light yellow brick as a sand-based sea bottom full of underwater life. Considering the fact that many coral reefs are at risk due to water pollution and that coral reefs are considered as underwater rainforest, I tried to include versatile underwater plants and animals, contrasting in color, shape and size. The fact that TLG made new animal moulds this year was also super helpful. All-in-all, parts used in this creation were made by TLG as early as 1995, so basically, this MOC is a mix of old and new. To conclude, at least in my opinion, life is much nicer in color.

    Modular Pub – alternate build for 10264 Corner Garage

    Well done! I really like how you turned the Corner garage upside down and created a neat house and a pub. The dark green front of the pub looks great. I also like how you did the roof above the roof top window.

    [MOC] Small town diorama

    Lovely buildings. I like the street style, as all the buildings fit together nicely, but they're also different in design. Probably my favorite part is the roofline, with the skylight and black fencing, and the rooftop garden of the corner building. Do you have pictures of the full diorama? Would be great to see it.

    [MOC] Enchanted diamond

    I've already commented on Flickr, but this building is simply too impressive not to comment. The first detail that attracted me was the roof. It looks perfectly realistic with the triangle and and 'diamond' tiles. Thanks for sharing also the downside of the roof. Also, the dk blue fits nicely as a roof color. Another great detail of the house was the ground floor. The monochrome storefront looks very interesting with the intricate details, and the items in the store pop-up more effectively. On the other hand, I'm not a big fan of the middle floor. The detailing around the first-floor windows looks neat, but I'd prefer them wider. The second-floor windows, in my opinion, look too tall, also because of the fence on top as another detail. Perhaps, with another color behind the fence the detail would stand out differently. I don't know, just a wild guess... To get back on the topic, I really like your idea of using the fence and then building a modular around it. You did a great job all-in-all.

    Review: 40426 Christmas Wreath

    Thanks for the nice review. Although I'll most likely pass this set, I have to admit it looks nice. Since I hardly ever use Christmas decorations, buying this set would result only in increasing part count in my collection. As you mentioned, the quantities are nice, but part selection is quite common, and many already have enough parts to make it on your own. But it makes an interesting gift for other, less-into-LEGO people. I do like the idea of making a sort of home decor, not just the more common Easter or Halloween themed sets.

    [REVIEW] 75978 Diagon Alley

    Thanks for this extensive review. I took my time going through all the photos several times, reading the text and looking for more details. I find the set as a relatively accurate rendition of the alley, given the limits of the brick. The round windows are cleverly built with a different approach, and the interior is full of details and play. Given the price, it'd definitely not a play set, but it looks aa a great parts value.

    [MOC] Castle of Lord Afol

    This is such a nice design. I really like the traditional look and colors scheme, but a bit more modern in shape and detailing. It looks a bit old-school and nostalgic, but uses a more novel tricks to keep it all less cube-like. Even those not-so-nice printed panels fit in nicely. I would very gladly buy it as an Ideas set. Fingers crossed to make it to 10 000 votes.

    Pencil Holder

    This one looks really good and practical. I wouldn't mind having it on my desktop at work. The design and color combination reminds me of the painter Kandinsky.

    Copenhagen Kiosk, free instructions

    Fantastic replica. It's been a while since I last saw one in CPH, but I recognized it immediately.
