For the past few months I’ve been working on a LEGO modular Daily Planet in my spare time, and I wanted to share it with everyone here. This is also my first "real" post (I only recently joined) so it's highly probable I'm gonna screw this up because, well, I'm an idiot. Please be gentle, and if this is the wrong place I do apologize. I host the images on my own site because I'm given to understand that Eurobricks doesn't host images, so I hope I've done that correctly as well. Anyway, on to the model. It has 4 floors plus an accessible roof, and currently consists of 5,894 LEGO pieces. At the outset I started tracking my time and it also represents about 325 hours of work all done in Bricklink Studio. When I got the idea, I formulated a list of some things I wanted it to have: Large globe on top The “stairstep” look from the comics The lobby globe like was shown in the 1978 movie Face-to-face desks in the “bullpen” for Lois and Clark. Lois’ desk would be a big ol’ mess with a hairbrush, food, and crumpled papers next to the waste basket, while Clark’s desk is neat as a pin. Because we’re big Smallville fans and so many fun moments took place there, the model also features roof access where Lois can go to smoke or take a ride with Big Blue, and includes the roof access structure where Clark (finally) took flight in the finale of Smallville. A copy machine/room Break room Janitor closet for Clark to change in Perry White’s office Desk for Jimmy Office details like water coolers A store room with boxes of papers You can probably see that I've iterated the outside colors, and very significantly changed the uppermost floor to no longer have windows but rather a large clock. The reason was two-fold; first I thought it looked kind of cool that way, and I wanted to motorize the large globe on top to turn (and have a Superman minifigure flying around it. And just for fun, I couldn't resist photoshopping Superman into one of the renders. So there you have it. I make updates to the model fairly frequently and will make updates here if there's interest. Here's a few more images:
What happens when the DC Superheroes have a day out at LEGOLAND? A fun little video, nothing too serious (compared to the dark one I'm working on). I've had this video for a while, but wanted to clean it up a bit. Comments and suggestions are always welcome. Enjoy.
