  1. Hi All, This is a build I did for a work Christmas display. We had to make/decorate our desks based on a Christmas carol. This build was inspired by "While shepherds watched their flocks". More pictures on flickr. Thanks
  2. [MOC] Santa Claus

    Hello there! Sharing latest MOC~ Santa Claus. Hope you like it.
  3. I've been offline for ages, and thought what better way to break my hiatus than with 24 consecutive days of posting?! And it's December 1st! Well, at least here in Australia it is. My kids have got their official Lego Advent Calendars, but what's a castle fan to do? Since there's been no castle theme for years I decided to make my own Advent Calendar. And because I'm such a shameless Viking enthusiast, it's going to be a Viking one! Now much like the 2008 "Castle" and 2010 "Kingdoms" Advent Calendars (sets 7979 and 7952), mine isn't terribly Christmassy. They were really just an excuse to get a bunch of minifigs and minibuilds, and that's perfectly fine with me! Mine will just fit in with the ongoing efforts towards my Viking Village display. So without further ado, let's kick things off with: DAY 1 - Berserker Perhaps a bit of an angry start to the season, or maybe he's just stressed about spending the holidays with the in-laws? DAY 2 - Woodchopping Ah, now the Berserker has something to do with his axes! *CHOP CHOP* DAY 3 - Farm boy This young lad has the eggcellent job of collecting eggs! Ah, I crack myself up... no more silly yolks please... Day 4 - Toy boat When he's not working on the farm, the young lad enjoys playing with his toy boat. Day 5 - Old woodcarver An old villager carves wooden figures - maybe statues of the Norse gods? Day 6 - Campfire A simple build technique that's been done before, but now our hungry woodcarver can cook himself up a tasty meal! Day 7 - Blacksmith I think it's fair to say that no Lego Castle line is complete without a blacksmith! Day 8 - Anvil and grindstone Because the smith needs somewhere to work his elemental magic, doesn't he? Day 9 - Maiden Some traditional Scandinavian hospitality as this young welcomes visitors to the village with some delicious freshly baked bread! Day 10 - Barrel o' mead The hospitality doesn't stop at bread! Skål!
  4. The countdown is on! Only 25 more days until Christmas. I love advent calendars and wanted to create a larger Lego one this year. Each day brings a new character to fill Santa’s Workshop at the North Pole. On day one Jessica Claus welcomes you to the North Pole with a delicious tray of treats. The inside is ready for the elves and other Santa helpers to aid Santa get ready for Christmas. There are three fully furnished floors. The first floor is command central where the elves and other helpers can track Santa on his travels around the world on Christmas Eve. An extra large Christmas tree reaches into the second floor. Lots of magic and hard work happens on the second floor, which has a window greenhouse growing poinsettias of course and the workshop with toys, musical instruments and sports gear for children around the world. The third floor is the place where the elves, helpers and Santa get to relax and dine after their busy holiday season. Hope you enjoy and I will try to update daily as the building fills.

  5. Hi Everyone ! what is your favourite recomended Lego set gift for kids this christmas ? here is some review : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhCpLqaoNDE
  6. Was just thinking about what I would like to see Lego provide next year for the winter village series. Thought I would share some ideas. My hope is someone takes this and expands, tread gets a lot of good comments and get sent to Lego for inspiration. While the last two sets (train and station) have been good, IMO not quite as good as years past. Hard part of figuring out what should come next is the set has to expand our existing villages and still look good as a stand alone set. That said, think one of the following would be good. If you agree with any of these let me know. If you can think of something better, please add it below. 1) Small Inn/Cafe, 2 stories. First floor would be the cafe, a small kitchen and check in desk. 2nd floor would be two guest rooms with a bathroom in between. Do not need any other vehicles or decorations, Prefer the bricks in the building itself and detailing the interior. Mini figs would be: Desk clerk, Chef, one young couple (man and women), one family (dad, mom, few kids). 2) Frozen Skating Pond. Have a large (one base plate) pond. Pond should be elevated at least one brick. There should be a small skate rental shop with benches to put skates on. Also need a hot coco stand and a few trees around pond. If elevated enough kids sledding down a hill would be fun. Mini figs: Skate shop owner, coco stand attendant, 2 adult skaters, 2 kids and a dog. 3) Cottage/farm. This one one story and less modern home. Have a old kitchen, bed and a table. Outdoors have an outhouse and a simple stable. Need a horse and buggy. Some fencing would be nice. Mini Figs: Old man and women, grand kid, horse, cow, few chickens 4) General goods store. Old building full of all kinds of stuff. Have some good for sale outside. Has a old delivery truck (enclosed bed). Street light and bench. Mini figs: Store owner, truck driver, shop worker, shoppers (man, 2 women and 2 kids). These are not in any particular order as I would love for Lego to make them all. If I had to chose only one it would be the Inn, only because would look great as a center piece with the toy shop large Christmas tree. The cottage would be second and the general goods store third. Only reason the pond was not higher in the list is feel the easiest to moc ourselves. Fairly confident Lego could do it better then me thou....lol. Let me know what you think.
  7. MOC: Coca Cola Christmas Truck

    So I decided to create a Coca Cola Christmas Truck for my Winter Village, and this is the result. Took the Lego Truck as a basis and modified that design to fit my own goal. I think it turned out well :).
  8. I've been doing a lot of custom Winter Village MOCs over the past year, and this is my ninth! I wanted to try something a bit different, so I took my inspiration from a Christmas classic - How The Grinch Stole Christmas. The model includes the Grinch's DIY sleigh with overstuffed sack of presents (with credit to Peter Aoun for the method of attaching the 'antler'!), a Whoville House (with wiggly wavy architecture and crazy colourscheme that gave me a lot of headaches trying to get it to look right, haha - square bricks can certainly make the shapes needed tricky!), and a late addition that I have to thank the Eurobricks Xmas Raffle for (that thread gave me the idea to add this extra!) - a crooked 'Grinchmas Tree'. More photos (and photos of all my Winter Village sets) can be found on my Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/146006635@N03/albums LEGO Winter Village Whoville & The Grinch by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr LEGO Winter Village Whoville & The Grinch by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr
  9. Office Christmas Train

    It's 7 weeks till Christmas week from now and you know what that means? Tis Christmas Train season coming up quickly! Some of you may remember me setting up a little train layout in my office last year. All colleagues loved it very much and so this year me and some colleagues are expanding the office train for this year! Compared to last year the new office train will be about 60% more track, 70% more cars and can carry more than 50% more "real cargo" than last years train! This year's office train will feature the following: - T-Shaped 9V layout with 3 stations (calling at 3 different desks, so everyone in this particular office has access to the train) - 4 Track wide cargo cerminal and card - 20m of track length in total - 16 cars in total - Original Santa Fe Super Chief Engine upgraded with the original light brick - Candy wagon for storing and transporting real eatable candy - Band wagon for transporting a bluetooth speaker and stage for the BrickBand - PF shunting engine for the Power Functions yard - A small handcar (this is an inside joke with colleagues) - Winter Holiday Train which I built yesterday I'm super excited - construction will begin this week. We'll see how far we can build it during lunch breaks. Pictures will follow shortly after! But to get me started, I have a couple of questions: How does one operate a 9V layout with two transformers? Do they plug in parallel (i.e. exactly the same way on both transformers)? What power settings do I use when running a train with two 9V motors (power setting the same on both transformers)? Do I have to unplug one of them if I run a smaller train with only one 9V motor, or do I just not bring up power on one of them? Thanks in advance for answering my questions! Here's the planned layout for this year's office train:
  10. Is it just me, or, now that I'm getting ready to set up my Winter Village stuff, does the Friends Snow Resort line look like they're only a few alterations (and a bit of stripping out the pink) away from fitting in nicely alongside the Winter Village sets? This is more pertinent to the Chalet and Ice Rink sets than the Ski Lift and Off-Roader. What does everyone think? EDIT: And the Hot Chocolate Van! I completely forgot the Van . . which is more of a take it or leave it set for Winter Village applications, depending on what time period you picture your Village in (and how much you like hit chocolate).
  11. Winter Village diorama 2017

    Hi all, this year I expanded my collection of winter village sets buying the winter train station and the winter train, so I realized that I had to make a new diorama to integrate them in my diorama. This is the old one: Now, after a lot of work, I'm happy to present you the new one! I used a lot of pieces building three independent modules to make the structure more resistant and easily transportable. Hope you like it!
  12. [MOC] Winter Village Firehouse

    I'm doing a Winter Village display at a show in November, so my Christmassy building is stretching unusually early this year! This is my latest model - a Winter Village Firehouse! The building comes with an old fashioned style fire engine, and a hot chestnut wagon (with glowing light brick, and alternate "on fire" version to give the fire fighters an emergency to attend to!). The building comprises a garage for the fire engine (with an emergency telephone, hat stand, and Christmas tree), a kitchen area and sleeping area in the bell tower, and (of course!) a fire pole to slide down. The festive wreath on the front of the building also surrounds a hidden button that lights up the bell from inside the tower. The full album is at https://flic.kr/s/aHsm8MMRTB Winter Village Firehouse by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr Winter Village Firehouse by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr Winter Village Firehouse by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr
  13. [MOC] Winter Village Woodcarver

    This November, I've signed up to display a Winter Village display at a Lego show so even though we're still months away from Christmas, I've been working away at doing more Winter Village MOCs! This is my latest one - a Winter Village Woodcarver. Designed as an ornate chalet in the forest, the model depicts the workplace of a toy-maker, with the workstation on the inside (complete with woodworking tools, paint pots, and an almost finished toy soldier), and a cuckoo clock inspired rotating platform of wooden toys on the exterior (operated using a handle on the back of the building). Alongside it is a Christmas-colored gypsy wagon (complete with a stove and cosy bed for the toy-maker to sleep in), and three ice sculptures, which light up! I've been thinking of a doing a turntable Christmas building since I saw a non-Lego Christmas Village model that did something similar. This is my fifth(!) Winter Village MOC. The rest (a pub, a chocolate factory, a church, and custom train cars for the official Winter Train) can be seen in my Flickr album. https://www.flickr.com/photos/146006635@N03/albums Winter Village Woodcarver by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr Winter Village Woodcarver by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr Winter Village Woodcarver by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr Winter Village Woodcarver by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr
  14. [MOC] Winter Village Pub

    I realise we're practically six months away, but I need to get these ready in time! :) This is my take on a British canal-side pub at Christmas, with a narrow boat, lock, and pub building with cosy fireplace downstairs, and a four poster bed upstairs! More images are available on my Flickr at https://flic.kr/s/aHskZazD14
  15. [MOC] Small Ferris Wheel [updated]

    Hi, I would like to show you my wip moc of a ferris wheel for my winter village. I got inspiration from this one, expecially for the gondolas, but i spiced it up a little bit (6 instead of 4, top cover, etc...). Of course i still have to develop everything around it, this is just the wheel for now (and still need to add some more decorations). As I'm new to this forum and I'm back on track after a long dark age I would like to know your impressions and suggestions to get it better before ordering the pieces i miss.For example i have some difficulties to attach more firmly the white plates to the black technic rotor plate. Any ideas? The gondolas are connected via turntables, i guess that there is a little bit too friction on that but it's the easiest way i found. FRONT VIEW REAR VIEW Comments and suggestions are welcome
  16. Christmas 2016 Pessebre

    A spanish friend (Ostman el Sullusta) of me has a very detailed town that deserves a closer look!! He posted some pictures recently on his Flickr-account about turning his town into a Christmas scene. There are some really nice scenes he made!! Also watch his cosey square with really nice tiling! The trainstation he made is also impressive and has really nice detailing!! https://www.flickr.com/photos/33164873@N00/sets/72157679660545936
  17. Get ready for winter with the Winter Village Hardware Store Winter Village Hardware shop features 6 Minifigures, 3 Store workers, 2 male and 1 female shopper. Includes 1 vehicle, Vintage Dropside Steam Truck inspired by a 1930s Sentinel S4 Steam Waggon. Looks pretty plain doesn't it, Wait until you get inside. Looks like the delivery driver is off to deliver some gas canisters so the townsfolk can keep warm. I see a female customer looking to purchase a fine looking Christmas tree. Where to begin with the Fully enclosed interior, Features a wide range of tools and a (brick built)? Clothes rail where you can purchase workwear. Including a full range of 5 different fire extinguishers. And a topdown view showing the floorplan of the Building and the truckbed, I think that is everything, Thanks for looking :)

  19. MOC - Christmas Chimney

    Hi Everyone today I wanted to show you a little christmas MOC A Christmas Chimney ! Flickr Galery : https://www.flickr.com/photos/the_lego_bob/albums/72157676560264622/with/31940167455/ Tutorial on my chanel : If you like my content maybey you'll consider subscribing and making my dream come true (having 10 subscribers befor 2017) ;-D Hope you'll like it ! Lego Bob
  20. Hi, This building is stuffed with power functions and lights, so please take a look at more pictures and movies on my flickr. Short movie: see here. More detailed shots (but poorer quality - I have some problems with camera): see here. I was inspired by special kind of nativity scenes called "Kraków szopka" (see here). However final result looks rather like "Gasthaus". I should mention that all elements are powered by one Lego motor. And they could be driven manually by one crank. And this is my first creation where Lego Technic parts (gears etc.) are doing their proper work (they are not used just for decorations).
  21. Winter Village diorama 2016

    Hi everyone, I'd like to share with you my diorama for this year, It's the first time I've created such a thing and it's been a lot of fun and joy..and some frustration, because I wasn't sure I was going to finish it before Christmas. Luckily, I did. For some reason, I wasn't able to upload the photos here, but here's a link to my flickr album. The quality of the photos could be better, but I still hope you'll enjoy them, Happy Holidays!
  22. [MOC] Christmas Eve

    Today I wanted to show you how Lego Bob is spending christmas with his family 🎅 He has a nice table with lot's of good food Near the fireplace where the stocking is, on a green chair his dad is sitting Children are taking the presents from underneath the christmas tree Bobs brother has just been in woods searching for wood ;-) But where is Bob himself ? Wach the video and see for yourself !
  23. Please support my fully functional walking Wind-up Robot. I'm posting this to the Technic forum, because it is actually a LEGO Technic/Mindstorms creation. The Classic bricks are only on the outside. I built this for Christmas 2016. It gave out presents to all our friends and family. The product of two months work! The sleigh is driven by two NXT motors (controlled by EV3) and Rudolph's legs are powered by a PF M motor. Santa Claus has an incorporated pneumatic system using two pistons, a pump powered by a PF L motor and an EV3 motor which opens and closes the pneumatic valves. The video shows a case where Santa rejects a naughty kid and, in the end, doesn't give him the present. I hope you enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed building. Merry Christmas !!!
  24. Candy Cane Starfighter

    I wanted to build something small and holiday themed today, but I also had an itch to build microscale Sci-fi. Solution: A Candy Cane Starfighter! (I'm not sure how stable this design is, but it looks cool) 3D view on Mecabricks: http://www.mecabricks.com/en/models/qJk2EeoV29A Merry Christmas!
  25. It seems that Santa's Sleighs are all the rage this year. Here's my contribution. Merry Christmas.
