  1. On September 29th, 1973, a new School house ROCK (link to wiki page for those unfamiliar with what that is) music video was played for the first time alongside your regular American Saturday morning cartoons such as Scooby-Doo, old Rocky and Bullwinkle show episodes and maybe some Johnny Quest. This new music video featured a diminutive stereotypical train conductor, two hobos (one fat and tall, and one small and skinny), and a train with words on it... not just any words, but CONJUNCTIONS, as the name of the video and location is Conjunction Junction. This train is shown below, with comments about what it could possibly be carrying in the fictional ROCK-verse. The first two (NOT + THIS) are obviously Boxcars. The BUT tanker (most likely hauling Butane) and THAT boxcar. Finally, AND (which is possibly a refrigerated goods wagon) plus an OR (ore) hopper. Oddly, there was no locomotive mentioned or seen in the video.... thus, I have not included one here. (However, since it skews American in car styling, I'll be using a steam loco for this of that origin.) The green caboose is my own custom addition, with my sig-fig hanging on for dear life! All together, these train cars taught (and entertained!) generations of school-age children and some older adults about Conjunctions, and other videos taught about American history, the environment, math (multiplication tables up to 12 but skipping the number 1), science, money and even early home computers! (among MANY other subjects) All of them can be found on Disney +, as Disney owns ABC, which is who made the original music videos, and the newer ones up to 2009. However, what's a freight train without someone or somewhere to tell it where to go next? Enter the railyard dispatch center, which is not just any old building: it's the Conjunction Junction dispatch office as seen in the education cartoon series Schoolhouse Rock "Conjunction Junction" episode from September '73. The sign on the roof of the building should say "Conjunction Jct.", just as it did in the show... except I'm missing three printed 1 x 1 letters to make the sign work. I've made some changes to the original cartoon design, such as adding a heater / stove pipe to the building and placing a water tower nearby for thirsty steam locomotives. The tower top rotates a full 360 degrees with the water pipe, allowing the engineer to pull up, get his loco full of (imaginary) water, shove the pipe away, and move on. I've had the water tower built since 2019 from my Wild Western layout. So, what's YOUR function? EDIT 7/26/21: added dispatch office WIP photos.
  2. 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 IT'S HUUUUUGE by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr 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. MONEYBIN OPEN by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr 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 FIRST FLOOR by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr 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? SECRET PASSAGE by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr - 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 ;) SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr Here you can enjoy the anti-theft protecion cannon in action... "Say hello to my little friend" SECOND FLOOR by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr 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... BEDROOM 1 by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr Have you ever tried sleeping on a canopy bed made of 100 dollar bills? Trust Scrooge, you will sleep like a baby BEDROOM 2 by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr 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). SALON 2 by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr COINS BATH 1 by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr Here is Scrooge, literally showering in money, happy as a baby. COINS BATH 2 by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr He even has the shower curtain made of dollars SCROOGE'S OFFICE by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr 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? FUNCTIONING TRAPDOOR by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr 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 THE NUMBER 1 DIME DISPLAY CASE by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr POOR DONALD by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr THE GRAPHIC OF PROFITS by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr 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 IT'S A PIGGY BANK by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr AND NOW THE IMPORTANT PART... Guys, this project is available on Lego Ideas at the following link --> https://ideas.lego.com/projects/a633c276-5b5b-40fe-badd-217263dc37a8?fbclid=IwAR3W4jDpJswdFFF1hRky_HCFrREsiHsWpDzGBrUer8b2mVUHzAqcDjgqiJY 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. WHY THIS PROJECT NEEDS SUPPORT (BADLY) I love Scrooge McDuck, but I have the bad luck of Donald Duck (which I equally love), because Lego never cared about Scrooge McDuck, they only released a minifigure many years ago...until I decided to create this Moneybin. Then Lego Group decided "Let's do a Scrooge McDuck set", and they released set 40477, the Brickheadz of Scrooge, Huey, Dewey and Louie. That they are completely different from my moneybin, but that's enough for Lego to say "We don't accept anymore Ideas with this theme". So, when I uploaded my project for the first time (it was actually themed DuckTales, not even Scrooge McDuck), they rejected it because of violation of third party IP. So, I had a choice: see two months of hard, passionate work going to the trash can, or rework it, removing all possible references to Scrooge McDuck. I went for the second, and I transformed into his arch-rival Glomgold's Moneybin. That's why on Lego Ideas you see it with the G on the front wall (as a joke, I made sure that the parts making the G are the same of the dollar: change the order and you will get the dollar sign ). Needless to say, Glomgold is waaaaay less famous of Scrooge McDuck, and the fact that I can't use name, image or minifigure of Scrooge McDuck gives me waaaay less visibility and appeal. That's why I courtesly ask you to support this project if you liked what you saw. I really believe in this project and I think deserves a chance. Afterall, they already have the licence, they should just go with the original version i proposed first. Once again, this one is the link --> https://ideas.lego.com/projects/a633c276-5b5b-40fe-badd-217263dc37a8?fbclid=IwAR3W4jDpJswdFFF1hRky_HCFrREsiHsWpDzGBrUer8b2mVUHzAqcDjgqiJY In the following days I will try to upload a video, more photos and also my CUSTOMIZED EXTENDED VERSION, with one more floor to discover, and the iconic hill on which the Moneybin sits. Thanks to all the ones who will help this project become real
  3. Gotta get back, back to the past... Samurai Jack! Armed with a magic sword, a heroic samurai warrior sets out to defeat the evil demon sorcerer Aku. However, Aku transports him into the distant future, where the residents name him "Jack". Now Samurai Jack must find a way to return home to the past and obliterate Aku once and for all! Don't forget your hat, Jack! "Who dares to summon I, Aku?!" Using all the pieces to make his main form, Aku can "shape-shift" by being rebuilt into a scorpion... …or even a winged creature! Summary of Aku's rebuildable forms. What do you think of my product idea? If you have any feedback or suggestions regarding what you'd like me to improve or add to my project (bonus forms for Aku, supporting characters, enemies, etc.), I'm more than happy to take them into consideration!

    Sonic and you

    80cm Sonic Before you ask, this is not a digital build. You may discover that the head is slightly (about 5 degree) leaning backward because it is too heavy. I can ensure you that tangible build is much funnier than digital build. I have to pay attention to the structure and balance of the model. Not a huge fan of Sonic, but my daughter is. So, this MOC is built for her. Desired to build this a year ago. The planning stage is long because I need to figure out how to support Sonic's huge head with his thin and long legs. The actual building stage takes about 2 weeks. No glue used. Instead, I use more than 100 liftarms to tackle the supporting issue. 0 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 4 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 7 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 8 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 9 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 6 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 2 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 5 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 10 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 12 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 15 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr
  5. This is a mini version of Captain Future's Comet/Meteor spacecraft from the famous 80s cartoon. Despite its size the construction is actually reasonably stable and the design also allows the wings to rotate freely from the rest of the spacecraft.
  6. Flameo my fellow Avatar fans, I’m a huge fan of ATLA and I need your help. Recently I have submitted a project on LEGO IDEAS, it's the Spirit Oasis from Avatar: The Last Airbender. As you might know LEGO IDEAS is a website which allows users to submit ideas for Lego products to be turned into potential sets. So If my project reaches 10.000 supporters it may become an official LEGO Product. Many Avatar Fans including me would love to purchase another LEGO ATLA Set since the original sets from 2006 are not available anymore. Check out my project: The Spirit Oasis Project on LEGO IDEAS All you need to do is press the support button and create a free LEGO Account if necessary. Thanks a lot, Every supporter counts!
  7. Hi! That is my entry for the new contest: a tractor mixed with a dragster with a cartoon style! I amplified the shapes of a real tractor: I put huge rear wheels compared to the frond ones, there are 2 big headlights on the front of the hood... The only fonction of this MOC is that it is powered by a pull back motor. (Also, you can move the spoiler because it is fixed with a pin with friction, but that doesn't upgrade the playability) The anti-roll bar has a real utility. Without, the tractor finishes on its roof. The shock absorber is really useful: without, at the acceleration, the drive wheels "jump", they are not in contact with the floor anymore, so the motor is not used at 100%. So actually, the tractor does wheelies smoothly. That's all!
  8. This is a series of five satirical creations I've designed to examine our relationship with technology. Let me know what you think! No.1 "Sleepless" No.2 "Picture Perfect" No.3 "Out of Guntrol" No.4 "Fixing the Drain" No.5 "Held Apptive" The whole gang...

    [MOC] Meet The Flintstones

    This is my LEGO Ideas The Flintstones set proposal HERE I have over half the votes needed for LEGO to review it. Larger and more images HERE Beyond The Brick interview showing physical build HERE The car is attached to the stand / dirt road by a ball joint, so it can be positioned dynamically, and look like the weight of the ribs is tipping it. (The graphics on the Minifigures and other elements were added on top of the photos in Photoshop, Dino is a render composited in ) Thanks, Andy
  10. So not being satisfied with the Goblin Gliders provided in the Ghost Rider and Bridge Battle sets I made my own, based on the ones used in the 90s Fox Kids cartoon that I grew up with. Enjoy Reference:

    [MOC] "Workshop" House

    Hi all, I'm mainly a train guy, but I have a mild interest in architecture and an opinion on what I want in building design. This year I decided that I would build a house for our LUG's annual Christmas show, and of course it took me basically the whole year to design and build something I liked. I actually started with three design "concepts" that I felt were worth trying to implement: "open" house, "indoor-outdoor" house, and "workshop" house (this one). I won't say much about the former two since I may still want to build them in the future, but workshop eventually won because I had more issues shrinking the other two (more on that in a bit). The concept behind the workshop house is simple: the bottom floor is entirely workspace and the second floor is entirely living space. That's it. I build scale models for my trains, so I originally intended to make a scale model for this house, but it very quickly became apparent that a scale model would be really, really big, even after I reduced the scope (fewer rooms) of the design. It was only on the third revision that I finally decided to make it more of an "architectural concept" than a scale model, and tried to design it with the same level of fidelity as say a Creator or Modular building. And that's the one I actually built. In this design I also tried to manifest some themes I'm indirectly interested in exploring: the contrast between old and new, open floorplans, and the inclusion/intrusion of nature. For example, the workshop section of the house is built to suggest brick, something very heavy, while the top is designed to look more modern, something more light. The kitchen/dining room/living room are all in the same space, and the only private sections are a bathroom and bedroom. Finally the workshop has wide sliding doors on both ends such that it can essentially be transformed into an outdoor space. Finally, because I was looking at Creator sets for inspiration, the house also folds open down the center. I'm not sure how much play value there is in a thing like this, but at least you can see inside. Looking at the furnishings I can elaborate what I meant when I said "architectural concept" vs "scale model": in this house there isn't explicitly all the things you would need to make it livable, which is what allows to not be huge. There isn't like a shower or a kitchen sink or a refrigerator, rather there is a suggestion that there is a bathroom and a kitchen in their respective locations. Most of the furniture is stolen from official sets. I'm really not into furniture as much as the building-level idea. Those doors aren't really supposed to be clear, but I couldn't find anything opaque, and I wanted viewers to be able to look into the rooms. Finally there is a laundry room on the roof and an opening thing that was supposed to be a skylight (you can see it in the LDD model), but the old skylight piece turned out to be very hard to get. I think that's everything I have to add; there is of course a full gallery if it ever gets moderated, and if you are in the SF Bay Area you can see the house for yourself at the BayLUG Christmas display.
  12. This is a LEGO Ideas project I have made of Rockie - a guitarist that can keep the beat to the music. See more at the project site. I would appreciate if you gave it a look and your support! Rockie's head and neck can move (the same kind of mechanism I used in my Star Wars Bobbleheads) and if you have some music on and tap on his head it looks like he is keeping the beat to the music. See a video that demonstrates this . Rockie is a teenager who dreams of becoming a great music star one day. "Practice makes perfect!" is his motto. So far his only fan is his mouse friend Mac who always sits and listens to his guitar play. He specifically enjoys playing rock music, but also other kinds of music like jazz and blues.
  13. This is my version of Donald Duck's car in LEGO. It was a challenge to build eventhough it is so small, but of course a fun challenge! I would appreciate if you also had a look at the LEGO Ideas-project here. Some history Donald Duck´s car made its first appearence in the movie "Don Donald" from 1937, and in 1938 it was introduced in the newspaper comics by Al Taliaferro. The design is originally based on an "American Bantam 1938"-car, but has changed slightly over the years and varies from different cartoonists. Its name "The 313" comes from the license plate that has number 313, which also is the day when Donald Duck was born (13th of March). The design is mainly inspired by the original fictiv car "Belchfire Runabout", which you can see in the last photo.
  14. Hi everyone. Although my Lego building projects aren't normally Star Wars related, I've been collecting the sets and mini-figures for the last 6 months. To bring them all together and to celebrate Christmas, I put together a short comic book style story based on a Christmas Party MOC. I hope you like the idea. Maybe the story isn't the funniest or the most accurate, but it's intended to be a fun first try at something new based on one of our Lego MOCs. I'd love to hear your comments. Thanks, Mike .
