  2. I prefer Monster Fighters figures better. The ghosts of Hidden Side just don't do it for me. Can't really explain why, except they are not ghost-y enough. But apart from the execution of ghosts, I really like the Lovecraftian vibe I get from the HS stuff. And the sets have been decent. Steve
  3. Here is my latest MOC. It made its debut at BrickSlopes in May and is expected to go to BricksLA next month. Its been a long time since I posted a MOC here, but I've been building bigger, which means it takes longer to build and is much harder to photograph. But I thought I'd share my feudal Japanese layout. Its 192 studs long by 192 studs wide by not-sure how tall. I may try to take some more detail photos in January. Steve

    Feudal Japan

    Yes, That bothers me too. I'd like to assume they sea is out to the front, which is why the dock is there, and there is no reason to take the large ships further up the inlet. The real reason is making the bridge high enough for the ships to sail under would make a mess of the scale. Steve

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I think the announcement said December 7. Steve
  8. It's super neat. Steve
  9. I like it. I really like the mane and tail. Though, you need to push the bricks together on the horse more. There are some unsightly gaps between the bricks; the ones I particularly noticed were in the legs. Steve

    A comfy place for peasants to live

    I like the shutters. Steve
  13. I get tired of the same old red Santa every year, so I went with a Victorian style Father Christmas: I wish Lego would make a minifig version of him. Steve
  14. Thanks. It is little compared to the Egypt one in the background which is also mine. Steve
  15. This is a little layout I did, which was inspired by those old advertisements: Steve

    [Moc] Looking for the Holy Chalice

    I'd ditch the custom parts and the white fuzz, but beyond that its a great looking MOC. Steve

    Dang, I don't remember what prize I won and don't think I sent that info with my address. More of a surprise when it comes in the mail, I guess. Steve

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    I wonder if you could put it with the Parisian restaurant to lessen the impact of that weird stair. Steve

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    A lot of people don't like the 1950s US style diner motif. I am not particularly fond of it either. I don't, however, think it is entirely out of place in the modular street. The time periods are played pretty fast and loose in the modulars, so you can just assume it is a 50s nostalgia style theme restaurant put into a run down building. Steve

    Land of Adventure

    I think I must have been unclear. I understand why you did not use slopes. I was curious about the angle of the slopes. It looks not as steep as if you stacked brick on top of brick and then put tiles on the brick. Particularly it looks like there is a bend in the angle on the back corner. Is that just an illusion of the photography? Steve

    Land of Adventure

    Very nice. Your pyramid looks like it has a smaller slope. Is that right or just an illusion from the angle of the photo? Do the spears in the trap room move up and down? If not, motorizing them could be a cool effect. Do you have any more photos of the interior? I love the sphinx over the entry to the pyramid. Just a minor nitpick -and I might be wrong about it- but I do not think the Egyptians had arch technology. Steve
