  1. Click to choose files A ciber Christmas tree with ciber Santa and his wife ^^
  2. Thanks for this review! I find this serie funny and cool, and great for a city fan too : - Those bowls and spoons are so great - nice new hairepices and recolour - new "clothes" with scarf and hoodie What can we want more? And this serie is a good way to have the fish gear in a cheep way, so I like it! And the octopus one is so great too, by its own. The Npop girl is definitevly my favorite fig from this serie! I'm an Unikitty fan... It's funny to see that LEGO has made a technology update on the stereo player ^^! Whitefang, do you have the Harry Potter shark head, it's missing on your shark family picture Thanks for this great job!
  3. Not so far away, the world was divided in two, between Zombies and Minifigures, each tribe with its one rules, its own cultures and traditions. Zombies lived together in some quiet, peaceful and comfortable towns. They were very respectful of the other Zombies, independently of their zombie appearance, origin or color. Contrary to them, the Minifigures grown with the vision of a one colored world : in yellow! They don't have any rules and hated this wonderful and cute Zombie-land so much that one day, they tried to go to fight them. Poor Zombies, it seems this is the end of your quiet life! Never trust Minifigure, they are treacherous and will make you out be the baddies of the story... And here the link of the gallery for all the pictures.
  4. Those are not stockers, but printed parts. For the stop, I can't remembered, they came from city sets from the begining of the 2000 years. And for the pedestrian crossings, they came from a Junior set from 2015 or 2016. I don't know the ref exactly.
  5. Nice city layout, very "Crhistmasy"! And glad to see that you have used my pavement for your street! ^^
  6. Thanks fot the last comments! ^^ In fact Wout, my city is always under modification! And always lakes some interiors details...
  7. My city story

    Thanks for your comment! I have fixed the link. I will try to take some nicer pictures form those MOC to present them.
  8. Thanks for you comments! Here if France, it's like that, The traffic light is at the font of the intersection. I know that it's not like that in Canada.
  9. So, I’m glad to share with you another step pf my town layout story. This time, it’s not about houses, but street sections. After spending a lot of time on my buildings, I decided to take a moment on the streets. In fact, a city couldn’t be a great city without public furniture, flowers and roads ! In 2009, remember, I have already work on the pavement of my street. In fact, I don’t like how TLC made the pavements in the modular buildings line. And with LEGO, you can change what you don’t like ! So I have found a module, that used upside-down gives a more random look, even if it’s a regular module : But with all the modulars I have, with the official ones and my owns, I need a lot of straight road. And damned, TLC send only one straight with a crossed one. Damned, I will have a lot of crossed road, without any utility. So, some straight roads, I hurt my fingers with all of those dark grey tiles to put on ! Hopefully, I have some 1x2 plates to put too, and 2x2 tile with one centered stud. In fact, I want to have some modular road plates, with which you can put some street furniture and so on, without any effort. The 1x2 plates on each sides are here to attache the road sections between them, with a street lamp for example. And the other studs can fix flowers, garbage, fire hydrant and so on. The result of the street sections is for a crossed one : And for a straight one : After that, I worked on bus station, which need to be not too big and not too small to feet in the street. After some works and tries, I came up this this bus stop : I also made some garbage : Fire hydrants, simple but enough effective for me (some times, simplicity is your best friend!) : I need to put some touch of green in my town. Those flowerpot will help a little : Like those other flowers sections, in two kind of colors, for more diversity : Seeing the Gostbuster headquarters, I find the traffic light great and effective. So, I decided to duplicate it. I just add some flowers for a greener street and that’s all ! And without forgetting some traffic lights for pedestrians and other road signs : I also need some benches, and find a nice way to make them one day on a picture of a moc (don’t remember the source…), so I decided to reproduce them, Now, my minifigs can sit and have a quiet moment ! And I have enough white street lamps to fix all my road plates together. But I fall in love with a black version, from New Elementary,and couldn’t resist to reproduce them as well. Don’t you find them beautiful ? Just note that the base of the street lamp ha changed, with only 4 notches instead of the 6 for the older version, making it less beautiful IMO. And what a street without some trees? TLC never bring me some decent beautiful trees. It’s not that easy to make some nice ones, enough sturdy with a nice look. I have made some tries some years ago, remember, with those kind of trees : Time has past and TLC bring us a so wonderful part, like the new stalk piece ref 19119. Maybe it’s one of my favorite new part from 2015! So I tried to use this, and made a lot of versions. In fact, I wanted to build a tree that is enough sturdy, without small parts falling down (even if we are in autumn ^^!). And I’m quite happy with the result! Now it’s time to show you how all those elements go together. I have taken some pics to do so. Just note that I don’t have put some corner buildings just only because I don’t take the time to find them in my boxes. Firstly, some pics with one of all the element presented above : And finally, some pics with a touche of life, with some minifigs and cars, just to see how it looks in situation : So, this is just 1/3 of all my road plates I have made this way. We can image to have some other element to put in the street, like newspaper boxes, little food stands, a phone box and more ! Just let your imagination works ! I just hope that you enjoyed reading this long post! And you can discover some extra pics in my FlickR or Brickshelf galleries.
  10. Haaa! Finally! I was waiting for your review Whitfang! Event if I have seen other reviews on the net, i wanted yours! I like this tradition and would miss read it for nothing! Thanks to take the time to do it, it's always well appreciated! I hesitated to launch a warming message, just to be sure that you're still alive and minifigs series lover! ^^ I like this series, which is good, with nice heads, theme, parts and 2 new animals! I couldn't ask more! I can't wait to have this series in my hand (I d'ont have seen it in shops around me...).
  11. My city story

    Thanks Jamesn! I'm waiting for some pieces to finish my street section, and I'm now working on a bring new 16x32 modular town house in art nouveau style, once againe! One new aspect of my latest creations, is that I don't limit my buiding with my bricks that I have in stock like before. Now that I have discovered Bricklink, (well I know it for long, but I decided to buy on only it few month ago... I know that I will never start doing this!) it's easyer to finalise some nice details with the right colours!
  12. [MOC] New Orleans Pirate Street

    Great moc! I like the atmosphere of your street, renforced by the fact that the two buidings are close from each other. Nice details outside and lot of the inside, very well done!
  13. My city story

    After more than two years, it’s time to give some news about me, or more interesting I hope, my town! I read this topic after a time not doing so, and I realize that I have started it 10 years ago, and I’m still working on my layout since I was a child, for more 25 years! I think that it will never end! I quite like this idea, maybe I’m crazy! At today’s point, I have finalized some new modular buildings and can show you a general view of my street here. Sorry not to post pics directly, I don’t have put them on BS or flickr, so the size doesn’t fit the rules of EB forum… Only people who takes the time to read carefully will see them, maybe if they clic on the link. Back on track! Here some particular modular MOC that I have made from the past months : - A townhouse that comes from the LEGO videogame minifigures, which I played with during its free time. With minors modifications, like a pub. - An art deco version of the official Palace cinema modular. - A more modern building with a gas station on the first floor. The picture doesn’t show the final version, it’s still in work, without all the good colours. - A corner building, with a garage section down the street. - Another corner building, with a touch of “art nouveau”. I quite like the color scheme used, I’m proud of this baby! And after the buildings, I’m working on the street section. 2016 is year of street rendering for me! I’m working on LEGO street baseplates and want a modular aspect, with section to put some streetlamps, flowers, trees, roadsigns, bus stop, in a modular way. Here just a quick view of a tree and here of a bus stop. I hope to share with you those street sections until 2018 the end of the year! And sorry for my English, which goes increasingly bad, not practicing it a lot…
  14. MOC LEGO Rockband bus

    What an old topic of mine! Sorry, I don't have LDD version. Just dwnload the original pdf. The modifications from the rear are easy to do with the pictures.
  15. MOC: Brickhills Avenue

    Once againe, a really nice moc from you! Nice color scheme, nice architectural details for thos art deco buidings, and nice choice for the minifigs wears and hairs! That looks really nice and smooth, as your style is!
