  1. Hello everyone! Maybe it's too early, but let it happen. What do you think of the Speed Champions series in 2022? Do you think it will disappear or continue, or will it be under a different name? Anyway, personally, I think they will stay with us for a long time (after all, they have made specially new wheels for 2021). It seems to me that there is a good chance to see in 2022 in the SC series such cars: - BMW M8 (maybe GTE) - Pagani Zonda or Huayra - Ferrari - some F1 car - due to Toyota license can Toyota gr010 (hypercar) - maybe some cars from the DTM or VASC series Post comments about what you think.

    RES-Q sets reimagined

    The 1998 Res-Q theme was one of my favorite line of sets growing up. Just for fun I decided to rebuild the sets digitally and imagine how they would look nowadays. I startet with the four smaller sets. What do you think? Would you like to see more sets? Do you think it would be realistic for TLG to recreate a theme like RES-Q nowadays? Your feedback and ideas are always welcome. 6451: Res-Q Jet-Ski The smallest set of the line. I didn't put too much work into this and just redid 30567: Police Water Scooter in RES-Q colors. 6431: Road Rescue The 1998 version was too simple in my opinion. I added an enclosed body to the SUV so all the tools could be transported. The SUV seats two minifigs. 6445: Emergency Evac I had so much fun with this set playing with the rope and the ambulance. I tried to keep the beefy looking off-road truck look and the possibility to load a stretcher in the back as well es the little trailer. 6451: River Response I changed the little vehicle a lot. Now it's an atv seating two minifigs. I kept the shape of the boat but added a proper cabin.

    [MOC] Micro city

    Hello! A year and a half ago, I saw somewhere on Flickr a building assembled on something like that. The idea came up to assemble an entire city from such buildings. At first standart basis were used, then doubled and quadruplet, and sometimes more. During this time two cities were built. I will share renders for those who are intrested. First city Original here I will continue to add buildings in the comments. Thank you for attention :)
  4. Here is my review on the new City 60314 Ice Cream Truck Police Chase: THE GOOD: New Ice Cream Costumes! These are great! Great Ice Cream Truck given its size and easily can repurpose to a genuine one (also remind me the LEGO movie one, very similar colour way) The front grill of the police car is a very interesting build. THE NOT SO GOOD: The price is high compare to the volume you get. The rear of the police car can be more streamlined. ATM doesn't really look like an ATM. I wanted to get this on 1st Jan but supply chain delay is really having an impact down here in NZ. But back to this set, I really like the ice cream truck, it's small but look great and can easily re-purpose to be a genuine ice cream truck quite easily. The highlight and main reason I bought this are the two ice cream costumes and these don't disappoint. Some elements could have been improved for example, the overall design of the police car and the ATM. However, the biggest draw back is the price, at NZ$60RRP really feel the price hike in general, even I bought this with discount still wish it further $10 cheaper. Anyway, will still recommend this set if you want to get the new ice-cream costumes and the cool ice cream truck!

    MOC: 505 Wasabi (Skyscraper)

    More than 42 inches tall, More than 6000 pieces, this hip, modern apartment skyscraper is my second tallest and second biggest MOC, located in the heart of Wasabi District. 505 WASABI Includes amenities such as a rooftop swimming pool up top and Wasabi District's first Dunkin Donuts. (Competitor to my Starbucks!) More interior pics coming soon, I'll keep you guys posted! But for now, enjoy the pics, and let me know what you guys think. Thanks for looking!
  6. As some of you may know, I already have a topic for my sport cars. Why not have another one for regular city cars? The latest LEGO Ideas contest "BUILD A VINTAGE CAR TO CRUISE THE STREETS OF LEGO® MODULAR BUILDINGS!" was a perfect occasion to get back to building after a break. After all, 6-wide cars is what I mainly build, so why not take a shot at a contest? Choosing a subject matter for an entry was the first step. In the end, I (like many others) decided to build a delivery truck. I was able to complete it in about a week, and looking back at it, I think I may have overcomplicated things as I tend to. Anyway, I am really pleased with the end result, especially with the shaping of the fenders. It fits one minifig, 3 crates and a hand truck. The roof and the hood are detachable, and there's a brick-built V engine. Comments and critique are welcome. The model is available at Mecabricks, or you can download an .lxf file. UPD: PDF instructions are now available at my Bricksafe here.
  7. Hi all! I'd like to share my atempt of making an exact as possible rebuild of the historic castle of the city of Thun in Switzerland, made with LDD and I tried to implent as much details as possible(i.e woodwork in the roof and ceilings, or the chimneys that are connected from the rooms up to the roof). My mainfocus was set on the castle, the surroundings I made just because it looked a little naked in the fotos, and the big trees are actually not mine, but some modified versions of other users, will replace them later on. I also want to keep building the old city wall, including towers and gates, and maybe the city church, so it's still a work in progress. I'm no pro at MOC-ing, it's actually one of my first buildings, and it was born because of a lot of sparetime in theese weird times. So let me know what you think, what you like and what I could or should improve. Thanks for reading. A big part of the beauty of this castle is its surroundings, so I photoshopped/gimped it into my brothers picture, which got the 3rd place in "Wiki loves monuments 2018 Switzerland", below is the original photo for comparison: When the pandemie is over, feel free to visit this beautiful place, which is considered by many one of the most beautiful on earth... Some more pictures: various outside views: (trees all on sakura by timmeyh / Big Tree by bb1061366 / tree by SMS) exploded view: Some pictures of the interior, here the attic: circular stairs in the tower, and chimney shouldn't miss out: Knight's hall:
  8. This is a MOC I created first in LDD, then in real life (thanks BrickLink!), featuring four attractions at a Renaissance Faire/Festival. I wasn't sure whether to post it in this forum or City (since technically it would take place in modern times), but figured its elements would appeal more to Historic fans. You can find many more pictures on my Flickr page. Also, I have submitted this as a project on Lego Ideas, so if you feel so inclined, I'd love your support: C&C are always welcome and appreciated!

    MOC: Mediterranean town square

    Hello users of EB! Here I present my latest build, a Mediterranean town square with a trio of intertwined buildings. A restaurant, a shop and various apartments fill the scene. I can't say its any one particular European style, more a hybrid mix of styles. Anyway onto the pics; They can also all be view on my flickr stream here Andy comments or queries about techniques are welcome. Regards!
  10. Hi everyone! After building some bikes me and friend (who's gonna post his entry one of these days) challenged each other to make the smallest RC vehicle possible and why not, also make it ridiculously overpowered :) So I made this little city car, it has some brutal power given by the buggy motor connected with the fast output and geared up to 1.666. It should travel at around 10kmh but given the high center of mass, like a city car thrown at 160kmh as soon as you try to make a sharp turn it rolls over... wich I admit it's pretty fun! Indoors it performs crazy drifts and it's really enjoyable to drive around, probably geared 1:1 it would be even better for indoor usage. I hope you'll like it !!! Features:- 1 Buggy motor - 1 Buwizz Measures:19.3cm x 11.8cm x 8.1cm350g weight I'll post a video as soon as it stops raining like crazy as it is these days :D
  11. This modular station was inspired by a long since expired Cuusso / Ideas project, (not mine), and set 2150 Train Station from 1996 while the clock tower is inspired by Big Bentley Bust-Out (from Cars 2 set 8639) from 2011. I added a removable six track long platform and put a luggage ramp from the street side for use by the wheelchair pieces LEGO recently made. By the way: the logo right below the clock is the official LEGO trains logo built in bricks, while the words in the center (just between the middle pillars) reads "Ironwood Union Depot" in printed 1 x 1 tiles. The street side of the station has been extended towards the edge of the base-plate, allowing for a more room (and more details!) inside the building. The year of the stations completion, 1928, is right above the main entryway. The lower floor has the central ticket desk, plus pizza restaurant (complete with opening oven!) on the right side with seating available on the left wing. These wings also allow for access to the platform under the twin canopies. The second floor has the switching control room and station managers office which floats inside the exterior walls on some tile-topped pillars. This assembly is barely connected to the build by two studs. (NOTE: No stairs to the upper floor were made because that's how the official CITY sets are, so I didn't include any as I was going for an official LEGO set feel.) This a closeup of the four-sided clock tower and brick-built LEGO Trains logo. The modular station features two platform sections, two lower roof sections, one upper roof section, and the removable second floor on top of a cafe (with seating) on the lower level. The station platforms fit via Technic pins while the other sections attach via a few studs. The station building shown above has been built since 2018. I've been trying to add a good looking canopy and passenger stairs to it since about late 2019, but gave up and added one that is solid in roof panels to my Disney-lookalike instead in early-to-mid 2021. Then, in early October I saw 76183 (Riddler face off from the new "The Batman" line) and knew I had found a solution to the pedestrian staircase between both platforms. I hashed out a better, more see-through version of the canopy on the MOD Disney station which should work... it has a half stud gap right now, but it most likely is an LDD problem instead of a design one. (I hope!) The stairs are a color changed MOD of the ones in the set with more space between the tracks and a bit more height in the middle section by way of bumping the whole structure up a brick or two. There is eleven bricks of clearance from the railhead to the bottom part of the arches, meaning the twin staircase's fit most of my trains through with room to spare. However, the pantograph's on electric loco's and a caboose cupola for a freight train won't fit under the bridges. This view also showcases the neat little hanging lights used under the canopy area itself. The bridges are missing eight black candlestick parts for the lights on the part of the walkway, where the stairs have their landings. I'll also have to cut the two 48 x 48's down by eight studs on one side per baseplate to better fit the footprint of the canopy. EDIT 11/9/21: This canopy project would would cost around three hundred US dollars (or more) if I didn't have 850 of the more expensive parts already found from my own collection and with serious help from my brother. Sadly, the Disney Station MOD's canopy has been sacrificed to make this project work as well. (Using those parts knocked it down to about $160 for what you see above.) Thoughts on new development or the original station? Comments, questions and complaints are always welcome!
  12. --- The heroes step out of the transport shuttle’s docking bay and into the packed and humid terminal of Docking Terminal 12. Gaudy, brightly lit screens advertise a variety of products and services; seemingly at every turn of one’s head a barrage of advertisements awaited. A busker band’s lively performance of old-timey music echoes throughout the mezzanine, just audible over the sound of constant chatter and moving feet. The enticing smells of food vendor’s stalls mixes with the humidity of such a mass of people, from ytaaxi, to humans, to dwarves, to chimerans: it seems no one individual looks alike in the hustle and bustle of the crowd. Beyond the dirty terminal windows the party can see a never-ending skyline of high rise skyscrapers and speeders zipping about, as well as incoming and outgoing passenger spacecraft. Like a twinkling star, orbiting the planet the heroes can make out the shape of the Queen of Harts Casino and Resort, the station’s glitter and gleam twinkling in the purple evening sky as the sun sets over the horizon. Even though it’s late, the city planet of Cosmopoli does not sleep. Over the intercom, a shrill, raspy voice broadcasts departure times of commercial space cruisers and the arrival of privately owned transport shuttles. Moving their way through the crowded mezzanine, the party eventually finds a figure matching the description of their patron. Leaning back on a bench, a young, well dressed human man sits as his shoes are shined by a scruffy looking dwarf. The human’s tailored suit and styled hair exuded playful fashion. Noticing the heroes approach, the man tips the shoe shiner and stands up, brushing his suit down of any potential wrinkles and double checking his haircut in the reflection of the grimy windows before turning back to greet the heroes. “Ey, Heroica I take it? Thank goodness you guys showed up. The name’s Antony Bardeu, I’m your client. How’s it going? Better than I’m doing, I expect?” -Heroes- Designation: B3R5 - 3rk (Dutch Thriceman) Age: Unknown, Gender: Mechanical, Race: Adamite Character Points: 0 / 10 Vitality: 6 / 6 Velocity: 2 Strength: 3 Skill: 2 Smarts: 1 Spirit: 1 Proficiencies: Melee Weapons 2, Intimidation 1, Athletics 1 Known Spells: None Credits: 10 Equipment: Chain-Greatsword (Standard Kinetic Weapon) Mecha-Plate (Standard Kinetic Armour), Shield Booster Kirwin (karmajay)Age: Unknown, Gender: Unknown , Species: AdamiteCharacter Points: 1/10Vitality: 5/5Velocity: 1Strength: 1Skill: 1Smarts: 3Proficiencies: Coding 1, Culture 1, Engineering 2, Explosives 1, Technology 2 Credits: 0Equipment: Drone (Standard Long Range Elemental Weapon), Utility BeltInventory: (2) Hampering, Contained Elemental Grenades, Plasma Potion Yissam♥ (CMP) 141-year-old feminine Stratitarian Character Points: 0/10 Vitality: 5/5 Velocity: 1 Strength: 1 Skill: 1 Smarts: 2 Spirit: 3/3 Proficiencies: Coding 1, Culture 2, Occult 1, Performance 1 Known Spells: Entropic Mending, Spirit Ally, Tongues Credits: 10 Equipment: Prism Gauntlet (Standard long-range elemental weapon), AV Rig Inventory: Essence of Glibness, Essence of Intellect Merei Teo Age 24 Female, Helioi-Touched Celestial (Born Menahi) Character Points: 0/10Vitality: 5/5Velocity: 2Strength: 1Skill: 2Smarts: 2Spirit: 3Proficiencies: Occult 1, Religion 1, Coding 1, Insight 1Known Spells: Healing Light, Solar Flare, Gravity SinkCredits: 0Equipment: Teo Family Pocket-Watch (Kinetic Weapon), Utility Belt (Grants +1 Engineering or Medicine Check Success) Inventory: Æther Brew, Essence of Intellect MM Note: Welcome to Mission #4!

    [VIDEO] Pirates of the Karibrick

    Har Har dear Pirate friends, the time has come for me to start a new project. After finishing my new LEGO Room i am going to start to build a brand new Pirate setting with islands, pirates, ships and a nice small city. The world will be mostly pirate and Caribbean inspired but there will be a small twist. There will be some, not too many, Steampunk Elements in the world. Like a flying balloon air ship or a steam powered train. You can all be exited to see and hopefully enjoy this adventure of a brave new world build In the first video i will explain my project and I start to build the first bigger pirate island. The video is in German but you can also enjoy the moving pictures... Now go and enjoy the show Har Har!
  15. Hi all Coming out of my dark ages, I was super keen to put together a lego city (being a big fan of Jang and his amazing city). Here's my first attempt, combining a number of themes spanning 40 years - Classic Town, City, Lego Ideas, Modulars and a few builds from the classic 6000 ideas book. Still very much a work in progress, but pretty happy with it! Second round will be to try to include trains, but that will be a challenge!

    The bridge is completed

    Hello there, today again a small update to the Lego city. This time I sat down and finished the bridge over the future river. The middle part is kept quite thin to lose as little space as possible under the bridge. To make sure that the whole thing fits exactly into the 32x32 modules again, the bridge is exactly 64x64 blocks in size and so it fits into 4 standard squares. The details on the bridge (streetlights, people, cars, etc.) will be added later. Of course there is also an update video for this construction progress. Feel free to watch the video. Also, as usual, I've included a few pictures of the city and the bridge. The bridge from the side with the first module of the promenade. And the whole again from the other side. At the moment still quite empty but for it a quite large extension of the city. I hope you like the extension. Let me know if there are any points of improvement.

    [MOC] Detroit River Lighthouse

    Hello there, this time there is another small MOC, which will probably find its way into the LEGO® City in the future. Since the city is to be held in the American style, of course, the lighthouse must look "american". After some hours of google searching I decided to build the small but unique lighthouse at the mouth of the Detroit River in Lake Erie called the Detroit River Lighthouse. (For those who are interested, here is the link to the Google Maps location:,-83.1542341,13157m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x883b17a06b2e116f:0xc0f09b00e975d5ec!8m2!3d42.0004134!4d-83.1404758 ) The lighthouse is build without a baseplate and without modularity, because the exact terrain around the lighthouse has not been determined yet. I hope you like the model. As always, there is also a speedbuild video. Please have a look at it. Otherwise, under the video again some pictures of the model are shown. At first a picture from the original building. The LEGO Lighthouse Another view with the shed in front. The whole model shown from the other side with the big door. I hope you like the model. Let me know.

    Suggestions for city diorama

    Hello Eurobricks community. I've been reading Eurobricks for quite few years and have been collecting LEGO for a while. (mostly starwars) Anyhow, I have a question to the community: I need some advices on how to plan and start making a... lets start from small urban town. So the current resources I have now are: I have a lot of townsfolk, 2 houses, and some handful of bulk parts for sure. Few city vehicles if I remember it properly too. I have some green plates and plenty of old grey giant plates.

    bridge & waterfront for the city

    Hello there, there is again an update to my digital LEGO city. This time I dared to bring some water into the city. I have long thought about how I want to design the water. My final result is a design with transparent tiles. To make the riverside a bit more appealing and above all usable for a city, I also built a walk near the water with a retaining wall directly next to the beginning of the bridge over the river. But have a look at the current progress in the update video or in the pictures below. Have fun Here you can see the new part of the city with the bridge and the wall for the walk downstairs. The detail from the river side the bridge and the promenade with stairway to the street. At the edge of the river the water beats lightly against the wall and some water lilies and plant remains collect here. Finally, the overview of the new modules with bridge approach and retaining wall. The delivery truck is inspired by a well-known company and should further support the US character of the city. I hope you enjoyed the update. Feel free to write me if you have any other ideas or suggestions for improvement.
  20. The city of Nano (Nano-shi, 七市), also called district-7. The police is just patrolling the streets of the game district: Nano-shi (七市) - game district The district-7 police department, officer Shinjiro and his android partner KeiRo in front of their police car of the Mobile Patrol Force. The police car is inspired by Syd Mead his sketches for Blade runner.

  21. Here is my other Via Rail train, The Corridor. To see more pictures, please see Via Rail Canada - The Corridor. I'd love to hear any feedback, comments, questions, or criticisms. It's a big set, so let's tackle it one car at a time. :) If you like it, please support on LEGO Ideas if you believe it would make a great official set.
  22. Hello there, after the summer break I finally continue with the digital city project. This time I brought the fire station into the city. This lines up directly with the bookstore and completes the block of houses. I also continued to expand the street system. A new crossing was added and the side street by the fire station is also new. To make the expansion look a bit more lively, some new minifigures have also found their way into the city. This time I also tried a new tree building technique that I had seen on the Internet. Again, there is an update video of the construction. I would be very happy if you would stop by my youtube channel I packed the current pictures of the construction progress below the video and add a short explanation to each picture. At first the complete overview of the current city layout. Newly added is the building of the fire station, as well as the intersection on the far right and the side street. Here you can see the current expansion with the fire station and the new roads. All new minifigures and the greened mid strip are also well visible. Here in detail the new trees from technic connectors in different angles. The trees are optimal especially in narrow places. I hope you enjoyed the update of the construction progress. Feel free to let me know. Also, feel free to write me what I can improve or otherwise include in the city.
  23. Hi everyone. I'm new here, and I really, really wanted to show you my latest MOC... the legendary Scrooge McDuck's Moneybin. The project is also available on Lego Ideas (link at the end of the post), but first let me give you a tour, so you can check with your eyes if it's worth your vote . Be sure to scrool the pictures till the very bottom. I promise you won't regret it. LEGO SCROOGE MCDUCK'S MONEYBIN by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr This is the front, with the iconic huge dollar sign. The armored door is the first element of playability: it can be opened and closed pulling the two bars attacched at the side of each half. Also, it is not very clear from the picture, but the small stairway has two lion heads at the bottom, to give the entrance an imposing and intimidating touch As you can see is quite a tall building (33,3 cm, or if you prefer 34 bricks, from the baseplate to the top of the dome). On the roof we have the famous dome, that here I adapted into an helicopter landing pad. I couldn't not include the cannon to shoot at the evil Beagle Boys and a telescope to read the newspapers for free. Ok, now the interior. I wanted this set to be fun for adults to build and extremely fun for kids to play with, so it had to be easy to access every feature. The easiest way was to put the front wall on a separeted baseplate, so all you have to do to 'get in' is to push it away. As for the floors, they can be easily removed thanks to the trail design: they slide in the groove bricks inside the external walls, so it's easy to get into action And now the ground floor. I designed to be the most intimidating possible. Imagine: you are a business man and you have a meeting with the richest and toughest duck in the world. As soon as you enter, you don't have the time to enjoy the nice floor with dollar mosaic because you notice that a security camera is pointing at you. The frame with "TIME IS MONEY" also is not very welcoming, you wait your turn on the green sofa... and then you realize that is placed right in front of a giant anti theft protection cannon. As if it this wasn't enough, you also have a Scrooge McDuck's painting that seems look at you. AND IT IS, because that wall hides a secret passage, with an hole to spy from behind the painting... but what's so important that Scrooge wants to hide? Treasures, of course. What else do you expect from the richest and most adventurous duck in the world? Notice also the black lever to turn back the secret passage ;) Here you can enjoy the anti-theft protecion cannon in action... "Say hello to my little friend" And now the first floor, with the private rooms of Scrooge. On the corridor, a picture of him from when he was to work as gold prospector in Klondike, but most of all, the frame that says "There is no such a thing as talent, only inspiration and ambition". But let's see better the others room... Have you ever tried sleeping on a canopy bed made of 100 dollar bills? Trust Scrooge, you will sleep like a baby Sleep well, but get up early: Scrooge knows it well, he even has a frame in front of his bed to remember it. On the bedside table, a nice family picture from great comic writer Don Rosa. SALON 1 by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr And now the salon, or is it better to call it "Worry Room" ? Why do you think that carpet is threadbare that way? Scrooge's nervous walking, of course. What a shame, it was only 60 years old . We also have a library, a pendulum clock and a marble bust with laurel leaves (I can easily Scrooge get inspired by great leaders from the past). Here is Scrooge, literally showering in money, happy as a baby. He even has the shower curtain made of dollars And finally the second floor, with his big office. This is definitely my favorite floor, I made sure to put EVERY SINGLE DETAIL that I remember from the comics: EVERY SINGLE ONE. There is the giant vault door, the display case with his beloved number 1 dime, the earth globe, the weelbarrow full of coins, the pyramid of coins with Donald polishing them, the money bags, the graphic wih his profits skyrocketing, the gun on the wall, the desk with multiple phones and an old crank calculator... but wait, what's that lever under his desk? This is my favorite feature. I didn't like the classic way to make the trapdoors work, with the stick to be removed and then manually put back. No, I wanted it to feel real, so I designed the mechanism in a way that opens the trapdoor when you push the lever forward, and automatically closes it when you pull it back. What do you think about? Please let me know Ok... now the moment you were all waiting for...what it would be the MoneyBin without the giant money pool with his 3 cubic acres of cash? Let me explain how it works: sure, you could open the vault hatch, but to access the money pool, we actually have to go to the back. The back wall can be removed (it's easy to pull thanks to four bricks that stick out). With the back wall removed, we can admire the money pool thanks to the 9 big transparent panels . We have the trampoline, the giant meter to measure the level of cash... and not a single coin. why? Maybe the Beagle Boys stole it all? No, it's empty because you are the one going to fill the MoneyBin. The MoneyBin is in fact a giant piggy bank, that you can fill through the apposite coin slot on the back of the roof. Once filled, this is the final result AND NOW THE IMPORTANT PART... Guys, this project is available on Lego Ideas at the following link --> Probably you all know what Lego Ideas is, but in case you don't, here is how it works: 1) users (in this case me) upload their creations 2) other users vote them clicking the yellow button support (you need to have a Lego account, it's free to create one) 3) When a project reaches 10.000 supporters, Lego's experts will take it in exham to evaluate if produce it as an official Lego Set. Very simple. Thanks to all the ones who will help this project become real

    Your minifigure for the city

    Hello there, the digital city is growing. For this I need a lot of minifigures. If you want to help fill the city with life, you can add your own minifigure to it. What you need to do is simple. Just create a digital minifigure. The figure should be open in .io format. You can either add the download link of the figure here below the post or just send me a private message. The figure can of course hold objects in its hands or do small things. Thanks a lot for your help. I am looking forward to many different minifigures from you. If you want to know what the city currently looks like, feel free to check out the latest update post: Thanks for your support.
