    MOC: Cloud City

    I actually didn't think do that until after I removed all the panels for the first time... it was a nightmare trying to figure out how they went... Glad somebody got it! I think you mean the interior? To my eyes, the interior is white. The official BACC set has tan and it didn't look right to me. Thanks guys, I'm happy you liked it!

    MOC: Cloud City

    Hello there. This is a MOC I made this winter break after deciding not to pick up the Betrayal at Cloud City set. I actually wanted to make this MOC earlier, but held off since there were rumors of a UCS Cloud City set for some time. When it was finally announced, I was very disappointed in what Lego came up with so I gave myself the go-ahead to start work my own version. I will start by saying that I'm not really proud of the exterior. think if I were to do the MOC over again, I would try something different. The Millennium Falcon-style panels don't work that well since they end up being completely custom from each other in an attempt to cover up the gaps... which themselves are created by the unevenness of the circle itself. And then you get this ugly top section with the undersides of plates exposed which really couldn't have been designed any other way given the constraints. Though I don't plan on redesigning it since, from any reasonable distance, it looks good and the shaping with the different planes of "discs" is on-point. That said, I am quite satisfied with my micro-scale cloud city on top. Here is a birds-eye view of the interior, my pride and joy of this MOC. It could be bigger, there could be more rooms, some of the existing rooms could be greatly expanded, there could be more of those iconic hallways, etc. But at the end of the day, I knew what size I wanted it to be and I allocated the available space pretty effectively as well as put in a lot of little details. We have the waiting room, the dining room, a main area with a connected hall, the junk room, the detention block, the freezing chamber, the storage hallway, and of course the wind vane. One other thing, the grey door separating the main area from the detention block is able to slide open into the junk room. Every image that follows is pretty self-explanatory so this is the end of my rambling. I may have gotten a tad carried away with the artistic photography and scene representations in some places, so bear with me. If you can't really tell what you're looking at within the context of the MOC, the above image should be useful. Thanks for looking! Comments, questions, criticisms welcome.

    MOC: Music Dioramas

    Over a year later, I'm back to share 4 more dioramas that I have made! Enjoy! 13. Sonic Youth: Daydream Nation 14. Elliott Smith: Either/Or (a clearer image be found here. There is some profanity that I painted under the mirror that may not be suitable for younger audiences) 15. The Strokes: Is This It 16. Nick Drake: Bryter Layter (had some extra space around the back so I made micro-scale representations of Drake's other 2 albums!) I also thought I'd share how I've been displaying these recently! Thanks for stopping by! Any comments, questions, or criticism welcome.

    MOC: Music Dioramas

    Here's 3 more that I've created over the past 6 months. Enjoy! 10. The Velvet Underground: The Velvet Underground and Nico 11. The Kinks: The Village Green Preservation Society (the translation between album cover and Lego version might not be so apparent with this one. I've decided to add references to some of the songs to make the MOC more interesting. If you're a Lego fan and haven't heard "Johnny Thunder" off of this album, go listen now ) 12. Radiohead: OK Computer Thank you for viewing!

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    My first thought was that this looks too much like a MOC. There’s wayyy too much SNOT and tiles... it looks really bad. Maybe removing the tiles from the stairs would help? Also that tan looks awful... but I don’t know what other color could have been used that might fit better. What’s up with the grill hood on the inside too? Surely they could have made that so it doesn’t stick out to the other side, requiring inverted slopes and creating ugly gaps. I think they might have used the small dump truck/ scooper piece? Completely unnecessary. The piping on the side and the lamp look really similar. Don’t like that either. And why wasn’t this a corner building? It looks awkward pushed up against the AS. I actually really do like this building though. 1950s theme I think works quite well. Certainly better than BB or AS.

    Lego Bricks & Pieces?

    Thank you, this did help! Thanks for the tip with the torsos. I wasn't aware of the existing thread so thanks for pointing that out too.

    Lego Bricks & Pieces?

    Have any of you used this service from LEGO before? If you don't know it's basically like Pick a brick but you are ordering parts from lego sets themselves. Anyway, I'm placing my first B.a.P order and it seems that every single torso, head, and most hair pieces from liscensed sets are not available for purchase. They say "out of stock" indicating to me that they did have them at one point, but they all got bought. Do any of you know anything about this? Or are licensed minifig pieces just always not for sale? Do they restock them? Also, is there another way to search the site instead of typing in the set numbers that the parts come in or their part numbers continuously? Like what if I just want to go through all the minifig heads they have for sale? Thanks.

    I apologize if this has been covered elsewhere on this thread, but does anyone know if Ninjago City will have early VIP access in August?

    MOC: Music Dioramas

    Hello Eurobricks! I have for you 6 "music dioramas" that I like to make whenever I get really into a band or musician. Basically they're constructed on an 8x16 plate, they're 7 bricks high with tile on top, and they're either based on an album cover or just on the musician. Also, I'm not afraid to paint minifigures and parts occasionally for these. Anyway, enjoy! 1. The Beatles: Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band 2. Metallica: Master of Puppets 3. Green Day: 21st Century Breakdown 4. Nirvana: In Utero 5. Jimi Hendrix (Loosely based on his early "Purple Haze" era) 6. The White Stripes And here they are all stacked together for a display piece. Thank you for viewing! Questions and comments welcome.

    MOC: Modular Mexican Restaurant

    It's a repeated SNOT pattern of this hinge piece folded inward and a regular 2x2 plate: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=2429c01#T=C

    MOC: Modular Mexican Restaurant

    I just looked up that shopping center on google street view, and I can see the reminiscence. Weird how that worked out. And thank you!

    MOC: Modular Mexican Restaurant

    Nope, not based on a real location. I would say it is southwestern USA inspired though, because I did start making this after a trip to Southern California and the memory of the architecture there could have carried its way into my subconscious.
