HUGO CABRET Hugo Cabret by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr This i my small tribute to a great movie, Hugo Cabret, by Martin Scorsese. The movie is based on Brian Selznick's graphic novel "The Invention Of Hugo Cabret". Hugo Cabret by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr It’s about a boy who lives alone in the Gare Montparnasse railway station in Paris in the 1930s. His died father has left behind notebooks, including his plants to finish an automaton found in a museum. Hugo seems somewhat a genius with gears, screws, springs and levers, and the mechanical man is himself a steampunk masterwork of shining steel and brass. Hugo Cabret by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr During the story Hugo meets many people including a girl named Isabelle with which he will share his secrets, and her uncle Georges. This old man is none other then the immortal french film pioneer Georges Melies, who was also the original inventor of the automaton. Hugo Cabret by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr This is also a tribute to the great cinema and its first pioneers. It will be a nice idea include a tile with a graphic that represent Georges Melies most famous short film "A Trip To The Moon" (1902) with the ship that pokes the man in the moon in the eye. Hugo Cabret by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr If you have never watched this movie I strongly suggest to take the time and watch it. It doesn’t represent only the story of a boy, but mostly it is an analogy about the sense of life, putting the emphasis on how much each person contribution is important in the world. Hugo during the movies states: “I like to think that the world is a whole big unique equipment. You know equipment are made with the exact number pieces they need, consequently I come to the conclusion that if the world is a unique equipment, I personally have a reason to be here and the same is for you!” Hugo Cabret by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr In reference to my creation, I have tried to incorporate as many details and references to the movie as possible. You can find Hugo Cabret, Isabelle, Georges Melies with his camera, the automaton, the mechanic mouse, many mechanisms, the clock, the heart shape keys. All the mechanisms on the left work as the same as the one in the central column, some with a continuous movement other with an alternate movement in order to simulate the goes by of the time. Hugo Cabret by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr Because I am not an expert of LEGO Technic I was not able to make the mechanisms of the clock to work, so they are there only for a visual purpose. In the event that this project would be made I am sure that LEGO designers would find a way to make it work. I am here to ask to vote for my idea, a new project based on a wonderful movie with a deep message and please forgive my skills about making mechanisms work!

I just finished my second MOC revolving around Robin Hood, about Little John. This set includes a variety of Robin Hood-esque features and accessories, and 8 minifigs. Any feedback is much appreciated. This set is also a project on Lego Ideas, where you can read more details about the MOC: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/109893. I also figured this MOC could bring up some interesting discussions about BURPs and raised baseplates :) I have posted a few pics below.
