  1. 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 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
  2. 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! :)
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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!
  6. Greetings all. I've recently been playing with, 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, you can use Bricklink's Step view builder instructions here. (and buy parts) cheers!
  7. 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!

  8. 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!
  9. 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!
  10. 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 -
  11. 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.
  12. 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 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?
  13. 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?
  14. 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:
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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.

  19. LEGO Minecraft display

    I bought 21128 The Village and have now the set assembled on my desk. Now am I wondering how I could build it together with other Lego Minecraft sets (I already got the Cave, the Dungeon and The End Portal). The idea is to build the village atop of the others to get 2 levels; The Village on the top with underground structure beneath. In the future I can complement with the Mine, which also is a model of the underground in the overworld and a crafting box too. Have you guys seen or build any kind of Minecraft display like this?
  20. Light box display cases

    Not strictly Star Wars (or in fact Lego at all!) related, but on a recent trip to IKEA, I came across the Synas display box and immediately thought it would be ideal for displaying smaller sets and MOCs. At £20, it wasn't exactly cheap, but I thought it was suitable recompense for having to go to IKEA in the first place. The actual lighted area measures around 30x30 studs. I've so far had a couple of constraction figures (Greivous and Obi-Wan) battling on it as the lid/box section can be left in place or removed to simply leave the flat lit section. Here are a couple of shots just to give you an idea. And with the box off... And finally with a baseplate...
  21. REVIEW - 42044 - DISPLAY TEAM JET INTRODUCTION The smallest of the 2016 sets, is the Display Team Jet. It doesn't seem to have lots of functionality, but maybe the landing gear is retractable. This set kind of reminds me to the 9394 - Jet Plane, although it's obviously a lot smaller. As you can read in my review of the 42052 - Heavy Lift Helicopter basically anything flying is +1 for me, so let's find out if this set also fits the bill. Note: All images can be clicked for hi-res versions. SET INFORMATION Number: 42044 Title: Display Team Jet Theme: Technic Released: 2016 Part Count: 113 Box Weight: 193 gr Box Dimensions: 15,4 cm x 13,8 cm x 5,9 cm Set Price (MSRP): € 9,99 Price per Part: € 0,088 Links: Brickset, Bricklink THE BOX Being a small set, it obviously comes in a small box. The Display Team Jet is an Aerobatics Jet, used in air shows. On the box it's flying rather high, but at least it's at a safe distance from the crowd. Front side shows the main model, together with a small section indicating you can use Digital Building instructions to build this model. BACK SIDE The back side shows the B-model, a Stunt Plane. And again a reference to the apps for Digital Building instructions. More on the Stunt Plane later. CONTENT OF THE BOX The box contains: 2 Instructions Booklets (A- and B-model) 1 Sticker Sheet 3 Technic Liftarms 2 Bags INSTRUCTION BOOKLETS Both the instructions for the A- and B-model are included in the box. STICKER SHEET A lot of stickers for such a small set. Apparently no panel is left untouched. LIFTARMS Three liftarms unsealed, nothing out of the ordinary for a small set. BAGS Two bags containing the rest of the parts. HIGHLIGHTED PARTS This section describes the new and/or otherwise interesting parts. YELLOW 5L AXLES The 5L Axle in Yellow has never been released before, so it's one of the new parts for this year. BLACK 7L FLEX AXLES For the layman this seems a common part, but the 7L Soft Axle actually has never been released in black before. Combined with the re-release of the 19L Soft Axle in black, this will open up lots of possibilities. For those of you thinking you've read this text before; you are right, the new Drag Racer contains these new 7L Flex Axles too. WHITE PANELS This small set comes with a whopping 10 panels. Great for the ones who like panels. Not so great if you think TLG is using too much panels lately. RUDDER This part, the Small Bionicle Wing, is the same as the one used in last year's 42033 - Record Breaker. PART LIST This set contains 113 parts, all listed below. THE BUILD This is the collection of parts, used to build the Jet. It sure looks like we are getting a landing gear. The build is fun, but pretty straightforward. There aren't any special or cool techniques used in this set. It almost took me more time to apply all the stickers than to build the actual model. FINISHED MODEL The finished Jet does look cool though. The white and yellow color scheme, combined with the stickers, work really well. I have seen people refer to the plane as being orange, but it's definitely yellow. Technic (or LEGO in general) tends to have some color variation when it comes to yellow. I do concur this is the warmer variant of yellow, but it's not orange. The back of the plane looks nice too, although I am not a big fan of the rudder part. It looks too detailed, compared to the other panels. It's not a big deal though, and maybe it's just me. PARTS LEFT Only three common parts left. FEATURES AND FUNCTIONS This set has a single feature and that is a retractable landing gear. It's operated by the black 12T Double Bevel Gear near the cockpit. In the following picture you can see the landing gear retracted. This image shows the landing gear when the plane is ready for landing. Hopefully the pilot will roll the plane before landing, but you probably know what I mean VIDEO Here's s short video demonstrating the Display Team Jet. B-MODEL This set also includes the building instructions for the B-model, a Stunt Plane. The building experience for the Stunt Plane is more or less the same as for the Jet. Well, what do you expect when both models are planes with a limited number of parts. For an alternative model the Stunt Plane looks fine. There's not a lot of functionality in this plane, but it's worth mentioning that the tail wheel allows the plane to roll on a flat surface. The plane also has working propellors. Both functions are demonstrated in the video. Unfortunately, the landing gear of the Stunt Plane is not retractable. PARTS LEFT A couple of extra leftover parts, but it's nice to see that most of the parts have been used in the B-model as well. Actually, there's probably an extra yellow Technic Smooth 1/2 Bush left. I just found it on my desk, but it could belong to one of the other sets. VIDEO Here's a video demonstrating the Stunt Plane. SUMMARY Two nice planes for 13 bucks, that's basically what you get. Both models look good and the set has some interesting new parts. Especially the 7L Flex Axle will be very popular. It comes with a decent collection of white panel, although they are very common nowadays. Both models have limited functionality, but each of them has at least one function to give the model some playability for kids, other than the swooshability that is. Okay, it might lack some proper functions, but I still think kids will love this set. I can see kids running around with one of the planes in their hands. All in all I think this set delivers what you'd expect. SCORE Let's see how this set flies! Remember that the grades are based on it being a small set. Obviously a set like this, cannot be compared with a Mercedes flagship. 8 DESIGN For a small set, the model looks very authentic. 7 BUILDING EXPERIENCE No surprises. 7 FEATURES Just the retractable landing gear. 8 PLAYABILITY It has swooshability, so I see kids running around with this model. 7 PARTS Lots of panels, if you are into that. 8 VALUE FOR MONEY Can't go wrong with these small sets. 7,5 FUN FOR KIDS More image can be found on my Flickr page. Thank you for reading. I hope you enjoyed it.
  22. Hi dear forum! How do you display/store your models? Do you keep stickers on or off? I havent been collecting for too long, two years now, and I'm not sure wheather I should keep them on or just have the bricks plain. Bought some models new and seal and some are used. A bunch of them has really bad sticker quality while others are looking nice. I guess value wise it is better to have the stickers on, but the models are way easier to keep clean wihtout them, especially the ones where the stickers are starting to give in. I could not think of any better place to get my questions answere than here. Thanks. Edit: I know this is more of a general question, not specified for Star Wars, but this is the only forum I follow on Eurobricks.
  23. Hi Guys, Here’s a display I’ve built for an upcoming Lego show. It’s been about 3 years since I began the large drum tower with a view to making a large concentric castle This display was limited to a 1.2 metre x 1.8 metre table otherwise I may have extended the landscape further. These photos are just from a practice set up (the entire castle and landscape can be taken apart into modular sections). I will take some better photos in 2 weeks time when it is set up for the show. The ship is also an older build which can be seen in this topic: There are some techniques I have borrowed from some of you guys, consciously or unconsciously so if you see something familiar you have my thanks Excuse the mess in the background DSC_8463 by slobey79, on Flickr DSC_8485 by slobey79, on Flickr DSC_8483 by slobey79, on Flickr DSC_8477 by slobey79, on Flickr DSC_8476 by slobey79, on Flickr DSC_8472 by slobey79, on Flickr DSC_8466 by slobey79, on Flickr DSC_8473 by slobey79, on Flickr DSC_8474 by slobey79, on Flickr DSC_8465 by slobey79, on Flickr DSC_8469 by slobey79, on Flickr
  24. Rather than try to make good photos for my latest spaceship while having it sit on the floor of the backdrop, I decided to up the presentation a notch and provide a display stand for it to sit on. The height and angle of the arm can be adjusted by twisting the gear at the bottom of the mini-LA. At the top just about any sort of adapter plate or clamp can be built and attached in order to give a good connection to the model in question. The design is inspired somewhat by the Action Bases that Bandai sells alongside their popular Gunpla model kits. I didn't go for anything as elaborate as this design, which allows the arm and support to be repositioned on the base at will, as I didn't include a nameplate in the design and as such the orientation of the base doesn't matter. Best of all, I've made a digital model in .lxf form for anybody who'd like to build it for their own models! The model can be found on this page under the name "Display Stand Small Models". (If this doesn't fit in this section, moderators, feel free to move it; it's here because I built it go alongside my new spaceship but if it's better suited elsewhere that's okay too.)
  25. A few photos of a small LEGO train display I did as part of a small show at the weekend at Durham Cathedral as part of the 2nd birthday celebrations for the model (worth a look at the photos on their Facebook page). This display uses standard LEGO City/Creator vehicles (not something I fancied building on top of 84 baseplates of landscape for the larger layout!), and techniques I've seen and experimented with myself. For example, the corn is based on an idea from a LUG show (photos in this thread). Apologies for the quality of some of the photos - only had my phone with me on the day and some have come out a little dark! More of them are on flickr. I'm working on the remaining three quarters of the layout for Bricktastic in Manchester this August, so there's more to come very soon, hopefully! Doing this smaller show before then gave me a chance to test some of my ideas, so I'll leave you with some of my thoughts/discoveries: 1. having two long trains at the front of the small static layout does really block the view of the scenery behind (not an issue for the August show as trains will be moving!) 2. people really like finding the hidden scenarios in the display (e.g., hidden alien, construction worker caught short on the portaloo, farmer cleaning up after a cow) - gives it a little more impact, and rewards those who really look hard 3. the LEGO Minion to the left of the display was very popular (probably more so than my display!) 4. a lot of adults looking were surprised by what you can do with LEGO, and had lots of questions - so it's good to have some background knowledge and recommendations for local LUGs to help grow the community 5. using some actual LEGO sets was nice in that people recognised ones they had at home (and it saved me a lot of time!) 6. people will touch things! There were "no touching" signs on display, but no barriers (which I liked: more friendly). I purposely didn't have much towards the front that little (or larger) hands could get to. Nothing was stolen, and no harm was done - I'm not too precious about the LEGO I display so if kids (or the one adult I spotted) want to push the trains, I let them
