Mad Scientist Mansion - with 1920's blue roadster, and time machine - steampunk real world MOCs
Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO TownThis story is set in my Adventures / Monster fighters / Pharaoh's Quest Universe of the early 1920's. (First off, I want to apologize for these photos: I didn't have an area big enough to handle the four story tall building, so I improvised. It doesn't look very pretty, but it's passable.) I was inspired to create this model from the 2018 Jurassic World set 75930, Indoraptor Rampage at Lockwood Estate, with some design cues from set 10228, Haunted House. I made the mansion to replace this other MOC I had made, but don't worry, the other building still exists, it's just empty right now. The Wormwood Estate The dollhouse-style model was built from the set pictures, with the play features removed and opening rear sections added to match the front half. The model also features a round window for letting in moon light in on the mad doctor's experiments, along with lightning rods on top of the house. (for powering his experiments) The rear of the mansion features a back door (perfect for escapes when the locals get feisty about the scientist playing with time travel again!) and the chimney flue. The bottom floor features the living room and dining rooms, while the second floor is the bedroom, study and pipe organ rooms. The third floor features the laboratory for the study of time travel. The rear door to the outside is in this section, while the safe containing the house's title and family paper work is directly above on the second level. This area also has stairs from first to second floors. The left rear quarter features the fireplace and telephone on the first floor and a bed for the second floor's master bedroom. The stairs to the third floor are also on this side. The Wormwood Family Automobile The stylish car is heavily modified version of Brick-Link set BL19011 (Vintage Roadster) turned blue. The car model is about 10 studs wide (with a large overhang on each side due to the white fenders on front and rear) and is 36 studs long, front bumper to rear bumper. The car can now seat two mini-figure's in the seating area, and as before feature removable engine cowling sections for a look at the V8 heart of the car. The headlights are now secured more tightly, and the front windscreen glass is now trans-black and not inclined anymore. (it was bugging the heck out of me that it wouldn't stay in place!) The taillights were moved down onto the rear bumper. No real reason for the change, it just seemed like a good idea. The Time Machine Vehicle (TMV) Here is the Scientist's 1920's-period time machine, rebuilt from set 76109 (Quantum Realm Explorers). I fixed the rotating side engines of the original Marvel superheroes set, as these objects are now (mostly) locked in the position shown. The Time Travelers' Family, Friends & Foes In order from Left to Right: Mr. Harold Sutton: wealthy financial backer of Dr. Wormwood's experiments with time travel. Secretly wishes to have full control over the project for it's use by an unknown, Sinister third party. Mrs. Evelyn Sutton: sister of Dr. Wormwood (whom she despises) and step-mother of Gracie Sutton. Married to Mr. Sutton, who shares in her secret hatred of Dr. Wormwood. Grandad Joseph Wormwood: Father of Dr. Wormwood and Evelyn Sutton, and grandfather of Billy. His wife is deceased and he is living with Nancy, Billy, and the Doctor in Wormwood Manor. Gracie Sutton: Stepdaughter of Evelyn, and daughter of Harold Sutton & a complete sociopath. She enjoys tormenting people for pleasure, including younger cousin Billy Wormwood. Billy Wormwood: son of Nancy Wormwood and the good Doctor. Secretly tormented by cousin Gracie, he tries to find an escape from his predicament in any way. Nancy Wormwood: mother of Billy, and is concerned by Gracie's "play dates" with her son. After spying on Gracie Sutton tormenting Billy, she forbids her from seeing him, which puts the Doctor's financial backing at risk as payback by the Sutton family. "X": The mysterious masked man (woman?) who kidnaps Billy in 1922 with his time travel equipment. This person is also showed up on the Wormwood's estate lawn many years ago, resulting in Dr. Wormwood's fascination with time travel. Mrs. Katie Johnson: Town busybody and local telephone operator, who keeps an ear to private conversations for her own gain. Wife of Officer Pete Johnson, who (usually) keeps her in line. Officer Pete Johnson: Member of Scotland Yard and lives near Sutton Estate & Wormwood Manor. Is keen to know just what's going on when Billy get's kidnapped by "X" and Dr. Wormwood goes off to find him in time and space. NOT PICTURED: Dr. William Wormwood: The brains behind the brand-new invention of the time machine vehicle (or TMV, for short) and rebuilder of the giant mechanoid the Brass Automaton. Father of Billy, husband of Nancy, and financial backing recipient of the Sutton family, as his fortune was wiped out in his previous attempts at travel through time. The end of the Story? More may come later, I'm not quite sure on what steampunk thing to build after the robot, which now has his own thread. As usual, comments, questions and comments are always welcome!
1920's Mad scientist lab, time machine, and vintage car - real world steampunk MOC's
Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO Action and Adventure ThemesThis my version of the 2018 Marvel Comics 'infinity War" set 76108 (Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown) for a 1920's-flavored steampunk take on a mad scientist trying to open a time doorway into the beginning of the universe using a time machine modeled after set 76109. (Quantum Realm Explorers) When the mad Scientist Dr. Floyd Hyde opened his doorway to the pre-big-bang time zone for the first time in 1914, he sent his wife Penny (wearing a makeshift gray pressure suit) into the open portal and waited for her quick return. Unfortunately, something happened and the portal itself destabilized and shut down as a safety precaution on it's own. Eleven years pass for the Scientist, who becomes obsessed with reuniting with his lost love, delving every dime and ounce of energy into creating the rescue craft and fixing the portal machine onto said flying time-craft. He finishes it in the middle of the year 1925. An eternity passes for Penny, yet she does not age a day. She is taken in by the Brothers Three, whom she nicknames Alpha, Beta, and Omega. These strange alien beings are the sole inhabitants of the pre-big bang, being the sole survivors of a great war (they may have started it) and becoming almost omnipotent in the process of floating in the vast unending void of space. The Brothers Three ask only one thing of their kindness and helping keep her alive in the harsh environment: when rescue inevitably comes for Penny, let them come with her through the portal so they can help mankind achieve it's "destiny". Let her be their "herald", telling the governments of earth all about their amazing powers and how they can help serve man. So, will Dr. Hyde get his wife back? Will Penny allow the Brothers to follow her through the portal? And just what is this destiny these three are talking about? The choice is up to YOU! L to R: Dr. Floyd Hyde, his wife Penny Hyde (in the gray pressure suit), and The Brothers Three (alien beings from before the big bang) The front of the building, with the conservatory to the rear. I replaced the center round window from the Sanctum Sanctorum with more regular windows to give the building a more average city building appearance instead of a superhero's one. The front of the building also features the year it was built: 1901. The rear of the building has a ground-floor conservatory. The rearmost window on the bottom floor opens up 90 degrees to allow for figure placement in the conservatory. As a side note, the original Marvel model's exploding walls and drop-floors have been removed. The means from getting from one floor to another is a spiral staircase, and a small skylight has been added to the roof. The inside feature's the following: The lower floor has a fireplace with clock on mantle, table with chair, oven, and lamp on a side table. The middle floor features a strange mask on a safe, curio cabinet and a bed, along with an ancient weapons display. The upper floor features a desk with some sort of electricity storage machinery, several flasks, two bookcases, and microscope. The dark red thing in the greenish jar is a beating human heart. This model was inspired by @hachiroku's Indiana Jones Desert Chase car, but remade to have a different color scheme for use with my Adventurer's mad scientist character. The doors to the passenger compartment can also open, and there are taillights on the rear of the car. The vehicle can seat one figure in the drivers seat, and one figure (or a small cargo container) can be placed behind that. Here is Antman's vehicle from set 76109 (Quantum Realm Explorers) as a 1920's-period time machine, as seen above in steampunk form. I fixed the rotating side engines, as these maddening objects are now (mostly) locked in the position shown but for the slight sideways (left / right) motion that I for the life of me can't seem to fix. Oh well, it just gets them closer to the main engine pod in the center, so no harm, no foul. EDIT: 3/5/19: Added new real world pictures and deleted the rest of the ldd screenshots. This project is now done.
