    Brick house moc

    Introduction Welcome to the brick house, the perfect house for your Minifigure. Though it's small, it has all the necessary things for your Minifigure to be comfortable. The outside of the house is modeled after a 1X1 LEGO brick for the Minifigure to feel completely at home. The build The brick house is 12 studs long and wide with a height of about 14 bricks. There are 234 bricks in the brick house. In the build, you can see a small living room with a chair, fireplace bookshelf, and a coffee table. Upstairs is a bedroom with one bed in it. inspiration I have quite a few LEGO Minifigures and some of them I don't just want to throw in a box, so I decided to make a home/display case for my Minifigures. please support on lego ideas. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/ae7db798-b750-4de4-8094-957fcb2abf80
  2. Hi Everyone, I haven't seen any posts about displaying minifigures in picture frames recently, so I thought I share with you my version. I made these 5 display frames for my Lord of the Rings/Hobbit minifigure collection. It doesn't contain all the minifigs from the themes, I deninitely wanted to create a nice display instead. The 5 frames are: Elves, Orcs (including 1 goblin soldier), Wizards (=Istari, incl. 2 blue wizards from other themes), Dwarfs (+Bilbo) and the fellowship of the ring (incl. Gandalf the White, King Theoden, Elrond and Gollum). I can place some bigger minifigs (for ex. Goblin King) on the top of the frames. I've used IKEA Ribba frames (23x23 cm). I've edited special backrounds for the individual displays. The minifigs are standing on 2x4 bricks, which are glued to the background. These bricks allowed me to apply stickers to sign the minifigs and to add extra parts (for ex. the arkenstone for Thorin). Unfortunatey, I couldn't use the glass of the original frame, because there wasn't enough space due to the equipments of the minifigs. Thus, I can't prevent them from dust... Creation process: As you can see, the bricks aren't glued on the photo, they are connected directly to the board. The final result: Thanks for stopped by!
  3. First of all, I normally hang out in the Technic Forum, so I apologise if something like this has already been posted. After buying all of the Collectable Minifigures (Series 1 - 4), I had been storing them in plastic storage boxes. I wanted to actually display them rather than just store them, so I decided to build my own display stand for them, and I built it out of Lego of course! During the 'May the Fourth' promotion on the Lego website, they were offering free shipping to Australia, so in addition to a few other Lego sets I decided to order a few parts from the Pick A Brick (PAB) selection. You could probably get these parts cheaper on BrickLink, but you might have to get them from several sellers, and pay multiple shipping costs, so in this case Pick A Brick was just easier. An interesting side note: although the Lego website says that the Pick A Brick order will take a few days longer to ship than normal Lego sets, I have found that in Australia they usually arrive first in most cases. I think this is because they get shipped directly from Denmark, whereas the other Lego sets get shipped via a distribution centre in S.E. Asia somewhere. Before I ordered the parts, I modelled the display stand in MLCad, only using parts that are available in Pick A Brick, and I decided upon this design: (Click on the images to see larger versions) I didn't get the Tile, Modified 4 x 3 with 4 Studs in Center parts from Pick A Brick though because they only come with the Collectable Minifigures. If you want to display other minifigures but don't have enough of these parts, you can get them from BrickLink, or use some Plate 2 x 3 parts instead (you will need 32 of them). I didn't get these baseplates from Pick A Brick either. I actually used a different type of baseplate, which I'll show you later (you'll need to keep reading to find out!). After receiving my Pick A Brick order, this is what my first display stand looks like: And populated with Series 1 Collectable Minifigures: You may notice that there is a Technic pin hole on the side. There is another one on the opposite side, and one on the back too. This is so that a Technic Pin can be inserted to join two (or more) display stands together: The join isn't strong enough that it makes a rigid connection, but it does keep the display stands aligned and stops them from getting knocked apart by accident. The photo above also shows how I have purposely offset the minifigures in each row so that they don't get hidden by the row in front of them. Alternatively, you can place the display stands one behind the other, and use Brick 2 x 2 x 3 parts to raise the back stand up to the correct level: As I mentioned above, I didn't order the baseplates from Pick A Brick, I actually planned for these display stands to be put on a X-Large Gray Baseplate. Each display stand is 24 studs wide and 12 studs deep, so eight display stands fit on the 48 x 48 studs of the baseplate, and creates a nice set of bleachers: My bleachers have room for eight series of Collectable Minifigures, but only four have been released so far, so it is half empty at the moment. Perhaps I'll fill it up with other minifigues for now. On the right half of the stand, I have used the Plate 2 x 3 parts, but when more Collectable Minifigures are released, I will replace them with the Tile, Modified 4 x 3 with 4 Studs in Center parts instead. You can view all these images, building instructions, and MLCad file in my BrickShelf Folder (once moderated). If you want to see the Pick A Brick parts list, or the BrickLink XML so that you can add the parts to your BrickLink Wanted List, expand the 'Spoiler' section below: Constructive comments and feedback welcome.
  4. I am taking my regular spot at Newport Leisure Center for Geek Fest, tomorrow and Sunday. Come say hi and see some brand new MOCs.
  5. I've built a "simple" motorised display turntable for one of our exhibitions and a good friend asked for instructions so I made a quick photo sequence and HERE there are for all of you who might find it interesting. It is based on the 42082 turntable and a keen eye will find it totaly unoptimised and too expensive :-) But here it is - and it is what it is. It handled the weight of OOB Chiron for a weekend with no problem. Best regards.
  6. REVIEW - 75192 - MILLENNIUM FALCON - STAND AND DISPLAY CASE INTRODUCTION After building the new UCS Millennium Falcon, I was looking for a way to display it. In the past I have visited the Pure Display website, because they are making all kinds of cool display cases, not only for LEGO models (collectibles). Recently they launched the iDisplayIt.co.uk website which is dedicated to LEGO models and collectibles. When I finished building the Falcon, they only had the horizontally placed display case, also used for the 10179. When I contacted Pure Display asking them for a vertically placed display case, I got into contact with Steve Chan. I sent him an Efferman stand and he got cracking. After a while, he showed the display case AND a stand to go with it. In this review I will show you what it's all about. But not before I thank Steve for the pleasant contact we had and providing me with one of the first new cases and stands. CONTENTS OF THE BOX Given the size of the display case, the box obviously needs to be pretty big. Everything is nicely packed with bubble protection. After getting rid of the bubbles, we are left with some acrylic plates. Don't be scared off by the blue color. That's just the protective coating, which we need to remove. This "set" also comes with instructions, just like the model it will contain. Albeit, way less pages than the Falcon itself. Instructions are easy to follow. Actually, you probably won't need them at all, since building the case is very much self-explanatory. STAND HORIZONTALLY The cool thing about the stand is, that it has two modes, horizontally and vertically. Below is a picture of horizontal mode. The areas where the model will be resting on the stand are nicely protected with rubber clips. The panels of the stand are securely connected using screws. Unlike the Falcon, the stand won't fall apart when moving. More on that later. This is how the Falcon is positioned in horizontal mode. There's a slight angle, which makes it look totally awesome. And a picture from the rear. I absolutely love this position. STAND VERTICALLY The second mode is the vertical mode. The Falcon is placed at a different angle, which allows for displaying it with less footprint. As you can see my copy of the stand came with an iron patter in it What happens when you are alone in the house and you want to change the display from horizontal to vertical mode, and the landing struts aren't attached to the Falcon. Well, you grab the falcon in one hand and you try to turn the display stand. Which works perfectly fine, until you miss the attachment point when placing it back on the stand. Then you lose control and all kinds of unwanted events occur :P Luckily, this isn't a crash, but a controlled landing. I managed to put the Falcon down, but unlike the movies, the Falcon did suffer severe damage. Let's say the Force wasn't strong with this one. At that point I called a friend. We reassembled the hunk of junk and put it on the display together. Be careful when you do this alone. It's better to have someone assist you. So, here it is, placed vertically. As you can see, it takes up less space when placed like this. For me, this is the ideal setup, since my cabinet isn't that big. And it does look rather impressive. This definitely results in some oooohhhhs and ahhhhhs. DISPLAY CASE Of course, my initial mission was having it in a display case. Low and behold! I would love to make some scenery at the bottom, to make it more lively. But this has nothing to do with the display case, which is absolutely magnificent. The model is nicely protected from dust...and childrens touching it Yes, it is big and you need to have a spot for this bad boy. But when you have room for it, I can definitely recommend getting a this case. PRICE What do these products cost? The stand costs 48 GBP. The display case costs 162 GBP. Both excluding shipping costs. THE VERDICT This solution definitely doesn't come cheap. However, if you are looking for a professional display solution to protect your precious Falcon, this definitely is a great product. I highly recommend it, if you don't mind forking out the cash. I also have the Ghostbusters HQ display case and I absolutely love both products. I will definitely get some more display cases from Pure Display in the future! Thanks you for reading this review. All pictures can be found here.
  7. Hello ! For my first topic here I would like to share with you a small thing I made that proved itself very useful ! I've had my 31039 sitting at the top of a 2 meters high shelf for a few month now and all I could see all day was the underneath of it. I was quite sad of this because I love this set and it's a very displayable model so I decided to work on a stand to display it. I wanted it to be : - As light as possible - Easy to use with any model - Made of common parts (actually the few parts I had left available) - And most important with ADJUSTABLE TILT ANGLE so I can modify the model position depending of how high the model is displayed. Here is the result : The stand is very sturdy and can handle a quite heavy model as long as it is well balanced on the stand. The model connects thanks to two 1x4 Technic bricks joined by a 2x4 plate : The parts are quite common and the rarest of them is the black 24T (I wanted the stand as black as possible ) Here are some pictures of the stand with the model on display : I also tested it with the 75102 and 75175 and both worked fine with the stand ! I think it can be easily modified to display technic models by replacing the technic bricks with Beams. I hope you will enjoy this stand, feel free to ask any question or suggest any improvement ! Oh and here is what it looks like on display at the top of the shelf :
  8. Hi guys, I am in the US, and will be moving into the house of my dreams next month. I will finally have the basement I've dreamed about. The one where I will have plenty of room for storage, build space, and a large scale city display. This brings me to my point; what should I do about tables? I'm going to need tables for building on, sorting on, etc. And I'll need tables for my display(s). And I'll need a bunch of them. What's my best bet? My most economical option? Do I buy a bunch of tables? Or do I build my own? What have you guys done??? Thanks!
  9. Not one to start small for a few weeks now I've been working on flushing out the Echo Base Hanger display I want to build for my UCS Millennium Falcon. I've been planning this since the set was announced but couldn't really start till I had the set in hand to base everything off. It will be in a glass coffee table I'll be building to display it. The planned layout is currently 47.5" by 41.75" but I may go to 47.5" x 47.5". I'm going to use Stricklybricks 50x50 baseplates with one set getting trimmed down. I'm trying to be as accurate as possible and get all the little details I'm finding as I research that I haven't seen before. This will also display some of the rest of my collection so the ships inside will be a mix besides the Falcon. My 99 X-Wing and probably one of Cehnot's beauties and 4 different official speeder sets spanning the years. I'm using Migui94's Falcon as a placeholder as I work to confirm sizing in addition to the physical test layout I have set up. I see that last week Cehnot also started basically the same project with similar goals but he is going for the whole hanger while I only have room for some of it with size limitation. Can't wait to see his take shape and maybe collaborate on a few elements. I'm building in Stud.io first since I don't have the money to start buying all the bricks and figure it out by physical trial and error. So to get started with where I am at here is an over view of the layout. I have a lot of detailing to do on the walls but I've been waiting till I had the structural strength and sizing dialed in first as I kept tweaking. I originally had 2 full bays but they wouldn't hold an X-Wing so I widened it and also ended up raising them to fit the vents. This top down view with the yellow fence shows the 41" width. and the potential space if I expand to 47". I'm going to curve the wall behind the Falcon some more but I'm not going to go all the way around to keep the sides of the Falcon visible through the sides of the table. This front view of the bay shows the vents in the top of the bays. My current thought was stickers to detail the vents but i will probably revisit them to look ate a brick based option but scale is a limit here. The Cat Walk for the X-Wings is an item that has been done but lacking in detail. I used Enderman eye plates for the side detailing. The current support beam X cross braces are temporary. After much thinking and tinkering I decided to design and print custom pieces to go there. The 3L bar on top will be cut in half to finish the top rail on the ends. I do like Cehnot's top rail better though and may try to rework mine based on his. Some small detail builds I have are the (quite silly) Treadwell 1016 droid briefly seen twice (somehow it gets on top of the Falcon with treads...). I also have a fuel tanker cart seen between the Falcon and the X-Wing. The floor light took days to get the scale right and try to be easily lit from below. The plan it to get vinyl stickers for the sides to cover the trans-clear plates then put an LED under them trough a hole in the baseplate. Not shown here is that the front 1x2 plate is clear while the 2 under the slope grills are trans med blue to get the right light out the back. I have lots more to do but finally felt I had enough to start sharing. Any suggestions on how to improve something are welcome! I will also be overhauling the Falcon itself to be more ESB accurate. Haven't yet decided on adding an interior since it will be in a closed display. -JF140/Cody

    Hey Everyone!

    Good Evening Ladies and Gentlemen! (bonus points for getting that reference) My name is Rob and I'm an 18 year old who plays and displays Lego to partially further my learning of practical effects in film and television. I am an aspiring special effects artist and Lego helps me channel in my inner creativity, as well as my love for taking what I see on the silver screen and building it in the palms of my own hands. Stay building every one! :)
  11. Whenever I put train cars on display in my room, they tend to roll away unless I put them at a funky angle, since the shelves aren't level. I designed a set of holders that the Lego train wheel piece sits on so they don't run away: The nice render above is sized for bogies with two studs between the wheel pieces - I designed up holders for single wheel bogies, and holders for bogies from zero to two studs between the wheels as seen below: These should help keep my trains from rolling away. I'll have to do them in gray the next time I have gray loaded into the printer.
  12. Past weekend I've been searching the web for a Lego display/project... But no succes. All I can remember of it: - Pic's weren't hosted on Flickr, but hosted on something else, maybe an own server/page. - It was a collaboration of various builders in a cyberpunk/futuristic/dystopian city setting. - Made somewhere between the years 2005-2009, 'cause it was one of the reasons I got into Lego again. - Similar to Zero Hour on Highway 44 & A Bus Stop In Bucharest in terms of style & looks. Wondering if any of you guys & gals on Eurobricks might know?

    Monty Python Black Knight

    Hi Everyone, Let me share with you my latest creation. I designed it to my brother for his birthday. He's a big Monty Python fan. It's the the Black Knight from the Monty Python and the Holy Grail movie. The knight is a simple black figure (with black head) with a custom printed torso. I've placed it into an IKEA Ribba picture frame. Hope you like it!

    Pirate Diorama

    Hi guys, Here is my display I've built for an upcoming Lego show in my home town. All up it's 96 x 353 studs and by far the biggest I've ever built. I'll post a few pics here but to see more click on the links to my Flickr account. I'll hopefully get some better pics in a couple of weeks at the show. I'd just like to credit Matthias Richiter for the skull design. I reverse engineered it from a picture I found a few years ago but I see he has now put it up on Lego Ideas so if you like it please give him your support! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/290285f9-b882-4dc3-b714-73aa73a4ae96/updates DSC_9496 by slobey79, on Flickr DSC_9497 by slobey79, on Flickr DSC_9494 by slobey79, on Flickr DSC_9491 by slobey79, on Flickr DSC_9490 by slobey79, on Flickr DSC_9485 by slobey79, on Flickr DSC_9475 by slobey79, on Flickr DSC_9469 by slobey79, on Flickr DSC_9466 by slobey79, on Flickr
  15. Greetings all. I've recently been playing with Stud.io, and teaching myself how to create instruction .PDFs using LPub with the intention of modelling/creating instructions for some of the GBC Modules I have (physically) built, both MOCs and Mods. To start off while learning, I used something that 's quick to build and only uses a small number of parts. So I present Cadder's "Found Ball Bucket". Backstory: This is a little something I knocked together while displaying at Brickvention 2017 and fine-tuned at BrisBricks 2017. Originally it was a 'catcher' that I made for a high module displayed at BV2016, essentially because I had 4 spare Lego Sports arena corner units... but it quickly became more useful. Occasionally at GBC shows, a rogue ball will "escape" and be picked up by young kiddie spectators who will invariably try to reach across the displays with an ever-helpful "'Scuse me mister! I found this!" Rather than risk knocking over or bumping/misaligning the working GBC modules, it became really handy to reply "Awesome! drop it into the blue bucket!" This had the great side-effect that it engaged said kiddies.. and with an added "See if you can make it spin...", makes the GBC display somewhat interactive. It's also versatile enough that it can be placed pretty much anywhere on the GBC circuit and feed found balls back into the circuit without too much disruption. It's deliberately built high enough that the return chute is higher than the 10-brick standard GBC input size. Returned balls should just drop straight into any module's Inbox. I dare say it could be double-purposed for its original use as a catcher - for, for example, a tower drop, shooter or flicker module. So. At first I really wasn't sure where to post this, and although not strictly a GBC module itself, it *IS* a very handy tool (I've subsequently built more than one) for GBC displays that I hope other GBC organisers/displayers might like to adopt. I also intend making a sign to stick on the front, something akin to the "Hey!" logo on the back of the City boxes. (ie, Along the mines of "Hey! Find an escaped GBC ball? Drop it in here!") Instructions in form of PDF file here. Also, because it was modelled in Stud.io, you can use Bricklink's Step view builder instructions here. (and buy parts) cheers!
  16. Hi everyone, I'd like to see more pictures of this amazing moc, made by artist master builder Erik Varszegi, does anyone has ever seen it in a show or an event? I have read on lugnet that it has been showed at some events, so if you have some pictures, please share!

    Essence Of Japan

    Hello, id like to share my latest moc its 4 small scenes featuring some of the more traditional parts of Japanese culture, any feedback and suggestions would be great More images and a better description can be found here - https://ideas.lego.com/projects/19577b3f-6bb5-4103-8cd3-d5e1134c6878
  18. This past week, the local LUG, Cactus Brick, put on a display at the Phoenix Comicon. The display contained a new pirate section, a large town with an enhanced railway system, and a large Star Wars collection. Here is a video highlighting the various builds.
  19. Hello, For years I have been sitting on a few store displays. I decided to google their worth and was suprised that not all are on Bricklink, ebay or even google. So I was wondering, have any of you seen these display cases before? What would they be worth? Edit: pictures added Edit: Thank you for the tip on how to add pictures, Peppermint_M! Also, I've been referred to http://www.raumhafen.de/galerie/lego_displays/index.html This is a fan site that keeps track of how often star wars store displays are sold on ebay. My star wars display was apparently only sold twice and has a rareness rating of 4 out of 5. Of course, this is only for the star wars set. And it's only the rareness. Does anyone know how much they would be worth?

    banners and display items!

    hello! i work at a small independent toy shop and while clearing out our old stock room we found a load of shop display items! we have various banners and a few giant mini figures bags (filled with foam i think?) is there much demand for this sort of thing or is trying to sell it a waste of time?
  21. This is the first MOC I present here on EB. It's a large scale figure of Link from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time measuring around 1 foot/ 30 cm tall. He has 14 joints of articulation so he can be posed in several positions. This is also the first time that I have submitted a model to LEGO Ideas and it would be much appreciated if you could support and share if you like this model. Here's the link (no pun intended) to the project: Link to Ideas
  22. For the opening of Legoland in 2015 I was asked to make a display model of the main entrance. This was displayed in the lobby of the hotel so that visitors entering from there could see what the other entrance looks like. It's a huge model, so here are some close-ups of the details: There are a couple of large dinosaurs near the flag sculpture. The corners of the bricks of the real models have been smoothed out so that children do not hurt themselves when they climb on top of it: I was unfortunately not able to get a 2x2 tile with the LEGO logo. It could have completed the large sculpture at the entrance: The entrance welcomes in Danish, German and English: There is an ATM next to the information counters: On the left you find the ticket shops. I had also made one in yellow and one in green, but there wasn't enough space: On the right there is a sculpture with clown inside of the flower arrangement: The marching band on top of the entrance: The complete model: I am not aware of the current whereabouts of this model. I hope it is on display somewhere. Brickshelf gallery with more pictures: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=550524

    Lego Set Display Stands

    Hey, I'm new to posting on here however I was wondering what people use to display their lego sets? I'm looking for a way to display my X-Wings with the wings open and also some of the new sets so they look airborne but I'm not really a fan on making the stands out of Lego. Sorry if there is already a topic on this but I couldn't find one already in the forums. Any ideas would be helpful Thanks Mat
  24. With the recent concert tour of "A Head Full of Dreams", Coldplay's popularity has risen drastically, therefore why not create a project of a popular group. The set is a concert stage, so the builders will be able to use it for their own customs and other play features. This set will include 4 exclusive minifigures of the group: Chris Martin Jonny Buckland Guy Berryman Will Champion Additional features include: Upright Piano Electronic Keyboard Drum set 2 Guitars Amplifiers 4 Beat boxes (green, red, blue, black) microphone I invite you all to be a part of this project, support and make something incredible become true.

    The Bridge Battle display

    Having recently bought the Spider-Man Bridge Battle set, I thought it would be amiss not to display it and make a chaotic diorama out of it. IMG_9275 by J G, on Flickr I'm not much of a MOCer (at least not anymore), so there's not much modification apart from the Sandman's 'sand hands', taken from that awful Sandman/ Rhino set. IMG_9282 by J G, on Flickr I'm glad the bridge comes with a birds nest on top, so I could make this lame joke with the Vulture. IMG_9292 by J G, on Flickr Ben Reilly's having some trouble keeping this taxi out of the water below, though his troubles are far from over. IMG_9285 by J G, on Flickr Whilst Spider-Girl faces off against the Scorpion and Kraven, Deadpool follows in the footsteps of the Great Oily Lord Ainsley Harriott and gives his meat a good old rub. IMG_9280 by J G, on Flickr Here is an under-shot of the entire thing. I had a lot of fun putting this together, and I can't recommend this set enough.
