  1. Hey guys, I decided to create this topic and the main idea came from this and this post (so special thanks to @danth and @Digger of Bricks!). I would like to highlight three things before I start to post inspirational MOCs: I’ll post three staff picks everyday! Please feel free to post your favorite MOCs! Have fun admiring and taking inspiration from those great MOCs Top three MOC’s IMO in Baroque architecture: 1. This incredible Baroque Church by @Jellyeater! 2. This amazingly detailed MOC by @pj_bosman! 3. This greatly shaped modular by @cimddwc! Here are the three best Baroque MOC’s IMO! What do you think about them? Would you buy modulars like those if TLG made? Here are the Steampunk ones: 1. This incredible layout made together by @castor-troy and @domino39 (they also made one MOD of the PR and the MS and two MOD’s of the CC included in this layout. But they look so different that they are more MOC then MOD). EB topic here and Flickr albums with more photos here, here, here and here. 2. These great Steampunk modulars by @adde51! 3. These very interesting modulars by @Zilmrud who as well made great MOD’s of the PC and the BB! Here are the three most gorgeous Steampunk MOC’s IMO! What do you think of them? Would you buy modulars like those if TLG ever made?
  2. I designed a Lego Space Shuttle to scale with the recent Lego Saturn V set. Since I get this question a lot, it is more proportionally correct than the 10231 and 10213 Shuttle, and is also accurately scaled to the Saturn V :) I posted a version of it on here before, but this one has been adjusted and finally submitted it to Lego Ideas. Please share with friends and sign up and support if you like it! Click to see more images and support if you like it! Lego Ideas - NASA Space Shuttle (Saturn V Scale)

    What Are Your Favorite Licensed MOCs?

    What are your favorite fan creations based upon licensed properties that Lego has/had produced sets for? Whether it be DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Doctor Who, Disney, Harry Potter, Nickelodeon, Voltron, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Cartoon Network, or any other franchise, share and discuss your favorite creations from some of your favorite AFOL builders you've found from around the web! Please, no promotion of your own creations, and please keep your selection limited to franchises/licenses Lego has, or already had, merchandise partnerships with.
  7. While browsing around Pinterest the other day, I came across this one amazing microscale city skyline creation by Instagram user Jeff Friesen (a.k.a. jeff_works), who has build a few other micro cityscape MOCs which are all just as extraordinary. Instagram seems like the only place he has posted his work, and, since I've never browsed around Instagram for MOCs before, I started searching around the site via some the hashtags attached to his posts. Unfortunately, I really couldn't find anything at all, since many of the posts under the hashtags mostly consisted of minifigure photography. So, does anyone here know of some great and/or noteworthy fan builders who only post their work on Instagram?
  8. Hello Everyone, My name is Arijit and I am from India. I am 33 years old and started my journey into the world of Lego only last year. Yes, I know it is very late to get started with Lego. But as the saying goes better late than never. I have been lurking around this community since more than 6 months now and have been reading the reviews of various Technic Sets. I have also been following the Technic MOC threads as well and they have been inspiring me to build some MOCs of my own. I finally decided to join this community yesterday and am looking forward to learn many new tricks from all the experienced folks in here. I own a few Lego Technic sets - 42008, 42024, 42052, 42054, 42055 (yet to start building), 42060 (my first technic set), 42062, 42064, 42065 (my only RC set), 42066. I think I have got quite a few sets and they should be good enough to jump into MOCing. I do know I still miss some vital parts like differentials and suspensions but do plan to buy few 2018 sets as their prices fall to meet the gap. Beyond Lego Technic, I also like the StarWars series sets and some of the Creator sets but do not own any currently. I am also into photography: https://500px.com/arijitdas
  9. Hi everyone! It's been 6 years since I last visited this amazing Lego site and after resetting my forgotten password, I am now back for the second time round! My name is Aaron and I last posted here in 2008. Back then I really rediscovered my lost childhood love of Lego, and I fell back in love with the shiny little plastic bricks hard! Unfortunately, after a good few months of posting on here and building various unfinished projects, I slowly started to lose interest and once those magical little bricks were tidied away, they have stayed there ever since. I am now living in my own flat with my (ever so understanding) girlfriend, but my countless boxes of Lego are still stored at my parents house (though not for long I'm sure ). Recently I found myself itching to have another go at it. I have just purchased a few bargain sealed Lego City sets from the last few years and should be building them within the next few days (around the daily work grind ). Fun builds with lots of pieces, such as the 4439 Police Heavy-Lift Helicopter for £20.00 and I've just picked up the 4436 Police Patrol Car for only £5.00. Looking at the latest sets, It's amazing how intricate the designs are now, with so many new parts and building techniques implemented. I did find it quite difficult to go through with it and spend my hard earned money, on what most people think as children's small plastic building blocks. But I like to think that by having such a massive interest in Lego as a child, it helped me become who I am today in adult life. I am a very hands on person who is always interested in how things are made and how they work. I do moan a little at how expensive Lego is these days, but I am surprised at how the quality of current Lego products is still so high! I would much rather them keep their quality high, than cut corners or cheapen the bricks. So I understand that for this reason, the prices have to increase with today's economical climate. I am in need for an enjoyable hobby, one where I can really stretch my now dwindling adult imagination. Maybe a hobby that lets you just escape this harsh world you slowly discover as you get older. I have now chosen to buy some Lego, to rediscover some of that enjoyment and imagination I had as a kid. I also hope to interact with other Adult Fans of Lego on these forums, it's been a while since I participated in any social forums online but I know how much fun they can be and especially this one. So I hope to have a good old chat with you lovely people, Lego is an amazing system indeed and it's nice that we can all share our enjoyment of it with others here at the Eurobricks forums. Thank you
  10. I'm "Lego King" and I'm new here. I couldn't stay away. I'm a huge AFOL (enthusiasm and body type--ha ha), helped found NMLUG (New Mexico Lego Users Group), which is growing and started in early 2012. I've mostly interacted on Facebook, in person at SANDLUG, CACTUSBRICKS, and Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/53325190@N05/) Perhaps my greatest contribution to the wider Lego community is that I counted out a large pick-a-brick cup full of 1x2 tiles to see how many tiles it holds (no fancy stacking)---the answer is 1703! If someone knows where I could've found that kind of info that wouldn't have involved me counting them by hand, please tell me! So I can feel bad.

    Playing in Space Since 1978

    Let me introduce you to my new creation. PLAYING IN SPACE SINCE 1978 by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr Have you ever wondered how our Spacemen Heroes could travel for almost 40 years through space without getting older or bored to death? Here’s your answer. For forty years our heroes have been playing with LEGO bricks! I was reorganizing some minifigs when I found a spaceman that I used to play with when I was a child, having him live the most amazing adventures. And I started wondering “He’ll be 40 in a little while, what’s his secret?” So, I imagined him, together with all his travelling companions, playing with a LEGO Space base for forty years. Maybe it’s true that playing with LEGO bricks keeps you young. What do you think about it? Do you find it new? Interesting? Creative? I had never seen something like this before and it's one of the reasons I've launched the project on LEGO Ideas. Another one is to see our beloved Classic Space minifig come back, or, why not, maybe even a few themed sets could come back. This project could act as a springboard. If you like, here's the link https://ideas.lego.com/projects/b21ccd00-a013-4509-9614-65cdab72ec82. Let me know what you think about it.
  12. Hi. Me and some other swedes have started a TV-show for YouTube featuring the AFOLs of Sweden. Where you get to know more about them and their passion and builds and collection etc. Here is a short trailer for the series that will start in a few weeks. Hope you all will like the show =) The spooken language is swedish but all the episodes and the trailer contains subtitles.
  13. Animation for the promotion of "THE CENTRAL PERK" lego ideas project on opening "I'll be there for you" :-) What do you think? Link removed by WhiteFang Thank you.
  14. HI guys, I want to share with you this interview we did to the builder of this MOC. As it is in Italian, turn on subtitles in English. Let me know if you are interested in other MOC videos exhibited in Italian events.

    Motorcycle Shop MOC

    This is my newest moc. It is a fully detailed motorcycle shop. I made it to look like it was an old retro fitted building. Sorry for not having any pics, i suck at computers and cant figure out how to get the file small enough. But luckily i have video so enjoy.
  17. I have not seen a topic on this, so if there is, please do move or merge with an established topic. Which AFOL community builders' work do you like or inspire you for your own projects/creations? For me, there are many, but my two top favorites are JonHall18 and Vince Toulouse on Flickr. I think they both are the best builders in the Dieselpunk and Sky-fi genres (both favorites of mine), and Vincent's artistry with Lego parts make unique and fantastic art deco-esq vehicular craft. https://www.flickr.com/photos/vince_toulouse/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/25163007@N07
  18. I had the opportunity to watch the LEGO Ninjago movie today, as part of a press preview showing in Seattle, WA. The showing included members of the press, Members of the local LEGO User's Group (SEALUG), and members of the community.NOTE: While I'm trying to be spoiler-free, please proceed with caution! As a point of context, I have very little knowledge about the Ninjago world; I haven’t built any of the sets or watched the TV show. My typical focus is LEGO and Architecture, although I dabble in Technic, Creator, and Star Wars themes.  Story The movie begins with a brief live-action shell story containing none other than Jacky Chan as a real-life Master Wu. We are quickly (and painlessly) transitioned into Ninjago city, a beautiful brick built city which is obviously inspired by Asian architecture. I did not see specific references to China, Japan, Korea, or other countries in the region, so I think they have tried to keep it nonspecific. (I do not feel qualified to determine if this is a sincere effort or cultural appropriation.) We are quickly introduced to the cast of characters and the conflict between the “good guys” (Master Wu, Lloyd, Cole, Jay, Kai, Nya, Zane), and Garmadon – the seemingly one-sided villain. We are also introduced to Lloyd’s mom, Koko. The film draws obvious parallels to classic Monster / Robot invasion themes. Within the first 30 minutes, the connection between the main characters becomes clear, setting the stage for the film’s core story line. Details Without going into specific spoilers, I wanted to call out a few details of the film which helped it shine... Music – Through a mix of flute melodies and popular songs, the transitional moments in the film are emphasized with complementary music selections. They are nice easter-eggs for older viewers. It’s a bit heavy-handed at times, but the film isn’t trying to be subtle, so it works. Style – The movie environment is richly detailed and attractively rendered. The film used a blend of brick-built environments and rendered 3d scenes to a positive effect. In contrast to the original LEGO movie, most of the landscape and water details are not brick-built, but I felt like it did not detract from overall effect. Animation – The stop-motion style of animation perfected on the original LEGO movie returns for this film. I think this is a good decision, as the subtle pauses of the minifigures as they move remind the viewer that it is in fact a toy. I did notice that they took more liberties in changing the angle of arms and heads beyond what is possible with real bricks. In this way, the film is a bit less authentic, but I didn’t feel like it was too distracting. LEGO'iness My biggest pleasure in the original LEGO movie, and biggest disappointment in The LEGO Batman Movie stems from the role LEGO plays in the storyline. The plot of The LEGO Movie is inextricably linked to the LEGO medium, be it the various historic LEGO realms, the constant re-building of components into creative solutions, or even the moment where Emmet can finally “see” the LEGO elements and their associated Part ID’s. The movie was bursting with easter eggs and natively LEGO moments that were a lot of fun to see as an AFOL. By contrast, The LEGO Batman Movie was a Batman movie first, and the LEGO aspects felt like an afterthought. The movie’s core plot would have worked just as well as an animated film, a cartoon, or even a live-action film. This was disappointing to me as a fan of LEGO first, and Batman second. (By contrast, friends who love the Batman franchise were more positive about the film.) The LEGO Ninjago Movie isn’t quite as strongly tied to the brick as the original LEGO Movie, but it’s better. There are lots of clever parts usage moments, and the storyline features specific LEGO elements in a prominent way. For my closing thoughts, and an analysis of how closely the official LEGO sets match the movie, visit http://brickarchitect.com/2017/ninjago-movie/ Thanks, ---tom
  19. I know it's being a long time since the last time I'm being in this forum, but there's a reason for it. For some reason, I find that the AFOL community starts to become harder to pleased with new sets release, like every new sets needs to be like a UCS, "High-End collector item", and "Well-built with complex build" or whatever. I know that these fans didn't represent the majority of the AFOL community, but is it really that the AFOL community has become harder and harder to pleases?
  20. https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCfk0Hv-YZsgRw8fVQRP_3qw We've recently started a YouTube Channel, and amongst other content for families, we have a couple of Lego based videos. It would be so helpful if any of the Lego lovers here would care to take a look and throw us some feedback. Thank you for your time! We are excited to join this community to hear about the latest Lego and Euroblock trends and news! Thank you for all the fun and excitement in the world of Lego!! And...

    The AFOL Brick House

    BREAKING NEWS! LEGO TO GO INTO THE REAL ESTATE MARKET The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr The world-famous Danish Company known for its toys and highly sophisticated interlockable brick systems took the plunge into the real estate market with a new type of prefabricated house targeted to AFOLs (acronym for ‘adult fan of LEGO’). The standard model in red, is three-storey connected by elegant stairs, features wooden floors, large windows across the whole rear of the house, a amazing Wurlitzer Jukebox, and even a glass display sitting in between the ground and 1st floor hosting a UCS Millenium Falcon in it (included in the price). The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr Now on the layout of the various floors: The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr Ground floor will have a Brick Room, where you can sort your bricks, a work bench with a brick separator, a personal computer and some cupboards to store your parts. The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr First floor will have a lovely living room with crystal displays, to showcase your favourite sets and custom creations to AFOL friends while listening music playing in the Jukebox. The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr Second floor will have a big table to host a city diorama (included in each house, but you can customize to your liking) and practise before taking your stuff to events. A manhole will also lead you to the attic to blow the cobwebs away and, who knows, sport a new IDEAS creation! This whole house will be just 1590 pieces including furniture! The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr You may ask yourselves: ‘No bathroom? A bed? Kitchen?’ Nothing to worry about, a hardcore AFOL doesn’t need any of these and even so there will be some other modular building next to this one where you would seek help. As we said, the model will be of 1590 pieces. Just because you can’t split it like conventional modular buildings, it will have hinges to open the rear all in one piece. The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr All floor can be pulled out to ease playability and to make changes to the layout. This innovative modular building fits to any other existing LEGO products, and gives a touch of color to your city theme. The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr Just try now to visualize it the real word, or your city. Would it be awesome, don’t you think? How colourful any city would be, or more beautiful? I would personally buy it, if only LEGO would produce it. Who ever dream of a place where you could express your passion for bricks to the best? For now, it’s only possible to vote for this project, who knows where the future leads.. My first proposition of the model is red, a real classic color for LEGO. The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr On a unrelated side note, the story behind my nickname. ‘VedoSoloLEGO’ means ‘I see only LEGOs’ in Italian, my native language. Reason behind that is anything i look at I try to picture it in brick shape. I hope you enjoy it. Technical notes: The model has been created with Mecabriks and rendered via Blender. Special thanks to gabriele.zannotti for the wonderful pictures and support; without his help, it wouldnt even be possible to show you this project with thee lovely hires pics. If you would like to keep in touch with the project you can subscribe to my Ideas profile, including my other projects, or on Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, Mocpages, by looking for my username ‘VedoSoloLEGO’. If you like this project, please share and vote here https://ideas.lego.com/projects/154372 Your help is much appreciated. Thanks!

    Hey- Nexcidia here.

    Hi everyone! After several years of adult building, I've decided to take the plunge and join the community as a means of bettering my builds and to talk to awesome LEGO people. Plus, I'm really looking forward to taking part in all the various challenges. This year I'm focusing heavily on spaceships so I can be more prepared this years Shiptember. Last year drained me for months. Anyways, here are a few of my builds that I'm proud of: Ye Old Trawler Cassie's Café Ventral T-F7 Interceptor

    TIE Interceptor [MOC]

    This is my version of the iconic TIE Interceptor from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. I'm amazed that LEGO hasn't decided to update this creation themselves since 2006 with their release of 6206, especially after releasing 9492 (TIE Fighter) in 2012 which showcased almost movie accurate solar collectors and then the development of new elements for the windshield and cockpit hatch from 75150 Darth Vader's TIE Advanced vs. A-Wing Starfigther from 2016. I first need to give a shout out to the initial influence of Rebel Builder's TIE Interceptor MOC for the solar panel collectors and then too Kevin Yoo for his cockpit ball design. My biggest grudge with the TIE Interceptor MOCs was the connection point between the pylons and solar panel collectors. They always appeared to big, bulky, and cumbersome for a fighter that is suppose to be sleek and fast. My solution was to do some "unofficial" LEGO connectiions to keep the attachment points sleek and narrow. I'm still not 100% happy with my MOC, the pylons need to be thinner and I need to solidify the attachment point for the forward windshield (it's not the strongest connection). Any and all comments are appreciated. Follow the link to my Flickr page to see more of the design process. TIE Interceptor by gcanik, on Flickr Flickr Album view: https://flic.kr/s/aHskTH9hFx
