  1. Hi everyone, I created an own version of the 6494 Magic Mountain Time Lab. It is the 20 years anniversary of the Time Cruisers theme. The basement is a laboratory with a lot of equipment and computers. In the basement is a portal gone haywire and a lot of people from the past and present has come into the world of Tim and Dr. Cyber. In the basement are several confrontations among several parties and Majisto the wizard has blown a hole in the wall and has hit a pipe. Can everyone get out before the water reaches the electronics? On the ground floor is a study room, where Johnny Thunder sees the confrontation between the Forestmen of the Dark Forest and the Imperial Armada. In the hallway, Dr. Cyber escapes from a confrontation between Pirates and the Blacktron Future Generation. In the Kitchen, the Forestmen are fighting with pirates. Outside, the police has started a raid and one of the Blacktron is trying to keep them away from the house. The Superhero is rescuing the police from the fire. On the first floor is a confrontation among the Imperial Guard, Unitron, Pirates and Spyrius. There is a bathroom, bedroom and another study room. Here is an overview of the basement and the ground floor. Here is a picture from the outside. For more pictures the album of Time Cruisers. Comments and questions are welcome. Sander
  2. INTRODUCTION The research institute was the 6th Cuusoo / Ideas project to be released. It was a very short-lived set with an unexpectedly large following. This set got popular outside of LEGO circles due to its feminist message concerning the lack of portrayal of women as job workers in sets. (or something along those lines) This might have been unintentional, but got a lot of attention which may have influenced the sets early retirement, seen as The LEGO Group usually goes to great lengths in order to avoid being used as a tool to promote any political, religious or otherwise socially sensitive messages. It’s a set of 3 individual vignettes built on a 6x6 base, representing three jobs. A paleontologist, astronomer and chemist. TECHNICAL: Set Name: Research Institute Set Number: 21110 Number of Pieces: 165 Theme: Ideas Designer: Alatariel (Ellen Kooijman) Availability: LEGO Exclusive / retail Year Released: 2014 Price: $ 19.99 / € 19.99 Stickers: 0 New elements: 0 Exclusive minifigures: 1/3 Brickset entry Bricklink Inventory The set consists of 165 pieces and three minifigures. It’s easy to build but a small child may need some help, especially with the dinosaur. There are a lot of tiny pieces, so keep your cat and baby clear while building. The box is a step nicer than we are used to, Ideas sets tend to have non-standard box dimensions and fold open from flat like a box of chocolates. Inside you’ll find the instruction booklet. Unlike most sets, with Ideas you get a thicker, sometimes differently binded book with a smoother paper finish. Before the actual build you can read a story about the author, how the idea for the set was born and a short description about the Ideas project. The research institute booklet also describes each of the portrayed scientist jobs. PARTS SELECTION: There are no new or very special parts except a printed blackboard, but you do get a nice selection of lab accessories including a purple colored Erlenmeyer flask which isn’t very common. MINIFIGURES: You get three figures for three scientists. The white lab coat with an orange shirt is a torso print exclusive to this set. The other two minifigures use common parts seen in other town themed sets. I think the white coat chemist is a representation of the sets author which is why it might have gotten special treatment, even though this isn’t outright mentioned anywhere. All the characters have double faces if you want to get them angry or shocked. The paleontologist doesn’t seem to be having a good day either way. BUILD: After you are done with the little gang of scientists, you better give them something to do. We start with Alatariel’s, I mean the chemist’s workplace. This build is the quickest and simplest, but she gets all the nice glassware and other fancy bits and bobs. I would have liked some tiles on that floor but I guess the design team responsible for parts optimization and price boundaries at TLG would disagree. Some scientists get fancy flasks, others get floor furnishing. Moving onto the next gang member and probably the most interesting build of all. The dinosaur! After we are done mini-building this cool microscope stand which stalled us from getting to the dinosaur, we can finally begin work on that menacing T-Rex! … I mean research reference material. This is where the build gets slightly more interesting. The parts that make the skeleton are quite imaginative, someone put a lot of thought into this, hopefully not during work hours. (; No tiles here either, but with a prop this cool, you don't need them. Moving on to the third and last scientist. The astronomer. The build is tiny, but I like how the telescope is built. The use of a sextant and the bucket element for the lens is pretty genius. I think white might have been a better choice of color, but probably not worth the extra expense as some of these elements aren't available in that color. The floor tiles give it a nice finished look, and overall, in spite of the dinosaur, this is my favorite build of the three. And there you have it, the collective institute of researchers. Chemists are a common sight in many research institutions, but I don’t really think you would find a paleontologist and astronomer together in the same building, or at least not very often. I was thinking how to make use of these vignettes in a town setting, and finally chose to use up the empty space in my town hall set as a form of exhibitional and educational area. Leftover parts: Ideas sets are nice enough to always include a brick separator even with smaller sets. Nice to get an extra bone and syringe, but nothing rare or of great use is left from the build. CONCLUSION: I feel like this set is a piece of LEGO Ideas history, it’s the one that baffled with popularity, it held a message and gave us some variety. I’d love to see more specialized themes in LEGO, ones that aren’t firemen and cake shop vendors, something you could put on a bookshelf just for display even if you’re not a regular builder. I don’t think the set was targeted primarily at children, but I feel it could work quite well as a play set. The build is simple and instantly recognizable. Overall Design: 7/10 - All the props are within reach of the limited minifigure limb articulation capabilities except the microscope. Maybe the floor furnishings could be more consistent between the builds. I appreciate the choice of printing in place of stickers. Parts selection: 6/10 – Most of the elements and colors are common, you do get one or two interesting items. Play features: 7/10 – This set is probably not primarily intended for play, but would be up to the task nevertheless Challenging build: 7/10 - The set has a couple of interesting builds despite its small scale Minifigures: 6/10 – One is great, one is acceptable and one is dressed inappropriately for the job description. I think they could have done slightly better. The choice of faces is great though. Overall: 7/10

    Humans and Energy

    Ever since a first burning tree has been spotted by humans, we were fascinated by fire - that emazing source of energy. Our caves become the labs of that time and soon we were full of ideas on how TO USE this energy. Homo erectus, ~400 000 BC. Ages passed away and new energy sources were discovered. Some of them safe, some of them not. We could heat our meal, we could break the stone. Many people died because of the power hidden inside nitroglycerin and many more would follow if Alfread Nobel would not discover a simple way TO CONTROL it. Alfred Nobel's lab, 1867. It must be some kind of irony inside us that now, and only now, when we know how to use it and how to control it, we are finally putting all our energy "just" TO UNDERSTAND it. LHC, CERN, today.

    [K - B06] Underwater Lab

    Location: B06 Sorn Tags: Vehicle, Land Vehicle, Exploration Last time, in Ender's story: Kanto Park Space Pirates "Ender," said Valentine, "I'm glad you're here. I wanted to talk to you about the specimen you brought back from one of the islands." "Oh yeah," responded Ender, "That plant you wanted me to bring back?" "It's not a plant" replied Valentine. "It's actually a small furry mammal similar to Earth's rabbit. It's cute, cuddly, and reproduces offspring faster than any other known warm-blooded creature." "Wow! Thanks for the science lesson" said Ender. "Hmm, you know, this could actually be exactly what we need to take down Graver's robot!" "Wait," interrupted Valentine, "I thought Graver was the threat." "You didn't hear?" inquired Ender. "Well, let me tell you... (OoC: the scene below is recycled and shouldn't be judged) Good job robot. Now hand over control of the ship. No. I no longer need to submit to you. I have outgrown my programing. You can call me Master or you can die. Why you ungrateful hunk of metal! I made you what you are! Without me you would be nothing! And with you, I am nothing. I will take my chances on my own. Glurg.... glurg... "So you see," explained Ender, "Graver is dead and now his robot is the threat!" "Oh my" said Valentine. "So what's your plan?" "I think we can use the Pokeball I won at Kanto Park while on my vacation" responded Ender. He then explained the rest of his plan, which we will find out next week! More pictures of the lab:
  5. Gary has always been a bit unlucky when we talk about love. Maybe it’s his appearence, because Gary’s looks… eh, how would I say it… Anyway, girls haven’t shown much attention for him over the years, though Gary has tried everything from blind date to Tinder. Because Gary works as a biochemist, he decided to develop some kind of love potion in his home lab! He recruited volunteer women with a newspaper announcement to test his creations. After many years, chemical reactions and failures, it seems that he finally made it! As always, C&C are very welcome! :)

    [O H-06] First shipment Awesomnium

    Lab Entry 001 Today was a great day for the meteorology lab, the first shipment of Awesomnium crystals came from the small mining out post just outside the city, The clowns I mean drones brought in this nice big one and I told them to place it in the cryogen freezer so I can study it later. Of course the Fools tripped the hazard alarm with opening the freezer without entering the code. UG...oh well I am quiet happy to be studying this mineral and research it's attributes, I am aiming for armor plating for our vehicles..who knows! C & C welcome. Jody

    [MOC] Hazardous experiments

    Hi there, here is my last moc, it's the first time i make a scene at this scale. It represents a scientific laboratory where scientists do some strange experiments. It was essentially inspired by the set 70163 - Ultra agents Toxikita. The scene is composed of four rooms. The first one is the principal experiment room, where mutants are studied. Then there is a security vestibule to put on Hazmat suits and avoid contamination, driving to a higly secured laboratory where genetic manipulations are tested. The last room is isolated and into it experiments are made on hazardous materials with a laser. This last experiment is led from the principal room. First of all, general overview of the scene : IMG_9570 by dorian glacet, sur Flickr IMG_9571 by dorian glacet, sur Flickr Close up on the two mutants cells and machinery : IMG_9579 by dorian glacet, sur Flickr Overview of genetic manipulation lab : IMG_9575 by dorian glacet, sur Flickr "Mmmmh, this suit could be usefull at the lambda facility" An unexpected guest.... by dorian glacet, sur Flickr A scientis manoeuvering materials : IMG_9576 by dorian glacet, sur Flickr "1.21 GIGOWATTS????" 1.21 Gigowatts? by dorian glacet, sur Flickr
  8. My newest modular is a small hotel with a New Orleans French Quarter look. The first floor: Three rooms on the 2nd floor with a shared bath: The top floor apartment belongs to the owner - Mr. Good & Evil. His secret lab is accessed through the bookcase. And the back... Comments and ideas are welcome! Thanks for looking.
