    Winter Garden

    Winter Garden This diorama was on my wishlist since a long time. My goal was to recreate a welcoming room full of plants and flowers while using many pieces from the Scala, Fabuland and Belville series. I have been collecting these kind of pieces in the past few months, and have finally placed them in my Winter Garden. If you look carefully you'll notice many Scala pieces like the award ribbon, the watering cans, the cloth rug, the chairs, the wicker baskets and the suitcase. Even the white cat waiting for the mouse on the chair. The coffee-table legs are linked via the Scala towel bar, a piece I had never heard of, but very interesting. I also added a couple of Fabuland utensils: the camera on the cabinet and the jerry can. There are many plants and flowers and I used different kind of utensil to create the plants supports (hockey sticks for the cactus, brooms for the ficus). There are many others details and NPU, have fun spotting them! It was very funny building it and it's something different from my usual comfort zone. Hope you like it!
  2. Review - LEGO 40187 Flower Display INTRODUCTION My girlfriend sent me a picture of this set, labelled with "Could this be Review material?". Isn't it nice when you have someone reminding you that you should do another review now, because that last one was soooo long ago? She found it at a local second hand store, but seals on top and bottom were still intact and the contents thus untouched. So my thoughts were "Hell, why not, it's about time for another review indeed". And what a better opportunity to do it now, when you need to #StaySafe and #StayHome anyways . The picture on the box shows us two cute flowers, a red Rose and a white Daisy. Both can be built and displayed at the same time. The set itself is quite small and comprised of exactly 100 pieces. The box measures 12 cm in height, 9 cm in width and is about 6 cm deep. Originally released in 2018, it can still be ordered from most LEGO Online Stores, thought availability varies from country to country. LEGO had it originally labelled unter "Miscellaneous", it goes along the Seasonal theme. By the way: Left click on a picture takes you to the bigger resolution on Flickr, as usual. SET SPECS Number: 40187 Title: Flower Display Theme: Seasonal Released: 2018 Part Count: 100 pieces Retail Price: DE - 5,99 € GB - 4,99 GBP US - 5,99 $ DK - 50,00 DKK With 100 pieces, the retail price of 5,99 € equates to a price of 0,06 € a piece (rounded to the second digit). This is pretty good and a way better parts-per-price ratio than most other sets. For comparison, 31078 Treehouse Treasures from my last review had a price of 0,12 € per piece. According to Brickinsights this set's ratio is way better than the average for System sets of 2018. LINKS 40187 @ brickset.com 40187 @ rebrickable.com LEGO PRODUCT SUMMARY Say it the LEGO® way with these 2 buildable flowers, featuring a rose and a daisy with interchangeable pots—perfect for Valentine’s day, Mother’s day or just because! THE BOX The 100 parts are packaged in a plain and simple box with flaps, not much text is found on the front of it. Pictured are the two flowers that you can build, the red Rose and the white Daisy in their pots, put on a digital backdrop featuring a window sill with a view into the countryside. Recommended age for this set is 7+ according to the front of the box. No set number on the front. The daisy is also featured on the right side with the set number, while the back shows us the usual warnings in countless languages and information about where this product was manufactured as well as distribution partners. The left side features the red rose, while the top of the box presents a 65° slope in red in 1:1 scale for size comparison and both sides also feature the set number. Finally, on the bottom we have trademark informations, the barcode and the internal item number for this product. As we can see, this box is recyclable (for those who tend to throw away the boxes after stripping them of their innards ). THE PARTS Inside the box, we have two unnumbered bags with parts. One is a little bigger, holding the pot parts for the Daisy. After unpacking both and spreading out their contents, this is what we get. The parts are nothing special by todays standards. Colours are mainly Green, White and Red (Viva Italia ). A few Yellow parts for the Daisy, 2x Bar 6l with stop ring and 2 round 1x1 plates in Reddish Brown as well as 4 macaronis in Pearl Gold are also there. The few Dark Blueish Gray and Black parts mostly hide away inside of the flowers or pots, only the 1L bars with clip will be visible later. Back in 2018, when this set was released, the Green Barbs (Part No. 16770) had only been included in Set 10255 Assembly Square before. Today this part comes in 5 sets, one of it being Set 30555 Poppy's Carriage, which is a polybag from the new Trolls theme. MINIFIGURES Well, there are none. Zero, niente, nada. But I think you didn't expect any, given that this set is called "Flower Display"? INSTRUCTIONS The instructions are kept as simple as the box was. Plain folded paper, nothing fancy. They fold up to the size shown in the upper left on the picture. Two instructions are provided, one for each flower. What I found interesting is the fact that there is no parts list, neither on instructions nor box. MAIN MODEL - ROSE AND DAISY Simplicity continues. Building the two flowers is as simple as the box and the instructions, nothing fancy here as well. Even if the builds are indeed pretty simple, there is a certain amount of SNOT on the Rose. Building the Daisy uses clips with an Octagonal plate with bar handles, the pot is a ridiculously simple build. And then you're then, Rose and Daisy are finished and ready for the shelf. Not many spare parts are left after building the flowers. PLAY FUNCTIONS Errrm, yeah.... Nothing much to say about the "play" functions because this is clearly labelled as a display model. You can swap out the pots between Rose and Daisy, but that's about it. B MODEL Well, no instructions for a B-model. However, given the range of parts in this set, I think it would be quite possible to create several other types of flowers with a little bit of imagination - which I am completely lacking at the moment... but maybe I'm not the only one with that problem. Doing a short search on the Internet didn't reveal any alternative builds so far. That shouldn't stop you from having a bit of fun with this set, it's LEGO after all . Flowerpot Girl is clearly happy about her new neighbour, and Cactus Girl made first contact with another thorny lifeform. (Minifigs are not included with this set, of course) SUMMARY & RATING I had a hard time judging this set, as the play functions are practically non-existing and there are no alternative or B models. The fact that it is a pure display model and the price per parts ratio is astonishingly low both compensate for these issues. But still I could not give this set a better rating than 7 out of 10 points (translating to a 4 - Above average in the EB rating poll). Maybe that's because I do have a problem with pure display models. Given that the parts are quite usable, I would still recommend this set, even if it was just as a parts pack. On the other hand this turns out to be a rather nice gift for your beloved ones, even if they are not at home in the world of bricks. Be it for Valentine's, Mother's or any other day you have an opportunity to bring a lovely present, this set really is a pleasing surprise to gift. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, I missed the deadline with this review for Mother's Day, but some people say every day of the year is a Mother's day If you bought this for yourself, because you are a bit into flowers, you should definitely look at 30404 Friendship Flower from the Friends series. It uses similar techniques as for the Daisy and goes nice along with the two flowers from this set. Design: 8 / 10 - Pleasent looking builds Build: 8 / 10 - Instructions are clear and easy to follow, building did indeed make fun despite the low part count Playability: 2 / 10 - Only meant as display models, so no play value whatsoever (besides switching the pots ... *cough*), no B-model or alternatives Minifigures: no rating Price: 10 / 10 - Price per part ratio pretty good, lots of reusable parts too because of the simple colour palette Overall: 7 / 10

  4. This is an example, how we can use the brick separator as a building element. 45l by Spiros Geropoulos, on Flickr The angle of the Separator gives interesting options for sloped building. On a more abstract level, using the Brick Separator as a building element, is a way of presenting the versatility of LEGO elements (and the LEGO philosophy). We turn something that is designed to separate and destroy, into a creative part that supports builds (instead of tearing them apart). More pics on FlickR. I've also submitted it to LEGO Ideas.

    [MOC] Bouquet

    Hello, this is a bouquet of roses and baby´s breath.
  6. Hello, I would like to present to you my second Modular building that I did in April this year. I wanted to present it with building instructions, that's why it took me so long to show it here. The building instructions are available for free at Rebrickable: http://rebrickable.c...lar-flower-shop The flower shop is located at the ground floor with small area for customers and behind the counter the shop keepers place. The entrance to the building is from the front for the customers and there is also back door for the owner. The owner's apartment is on the first floor - it is one big room, just as the ground floor. Then, there is removable roof. The instructions differ slightly to what's shown on the pictures as I didn't have all the right bricks at the time of building. The details changed are pavement colour to match official modulars, some gutter reinforcement and carpet on the first floor is now one plate higher. So.. here goes picture, I hope you'll like it :) First, my modular in all its glory ;) Now, the ground floor, the actual flower shop: Here comes the first floor apartment: ... and the roof: Here are all three modules together: and here's how it looks like with my first modular - the Ice Cream Parlor (http://www.eurobrick...opic=111129&hl=) If you want to have a look at some more pictures, please go to by Bricksafe gallery: http://www.bricksafe...lar_Flower_Shop
  7. The flower boutique with black & white colour theme and blue curved tinted glass shopfront aim to attract young customers. A large green "F" sign at the side wall of the entrance is the logo of this flower boutique. On high level of the front door entrance, a planter with flowers was incorporated to give a touch that this is a flower shop let alone the cool shopfront design. There was a skylight on top of the shop to bring in more sunlight while with the tinted glass, the lighting level is controlled so as to keep the flowers in good conditions. Some species of flowers need to be kept at a cooler temperature and that's why at the inner corner of the shop, it was equipped with a flower fridge. Pots of flowers were displayed in different level with flower stand at the inner portion of the boutique. At the back of the cashier counter, high level shelves was installed as another display area for flower arrangement. Next to the cashier counter, the boutique owner is making flower arrangement for sale while the customer is selecting flowers. At the back lane, a low level fence was installed and a refuse bin was provided. The light & dark grey paver design was a coherent design with respect to my other MOC ice-cream parlour. The cool lamp pole design at the public pavement also match the cool design of my young line flower boutique. I have launched the set to LEGO IDEAS, Wish to have your support https://ideas.lego.com/projects/94528 Hope you enjoy my flower boutique.

    MOC: Flower

    Hi, I built a flower for my wife when I left my dark ages a few years ago. Now, with more experience, I have built this improved version. I think it won´t be the last version...
