  1. The Jersey Brick Guy

    Tour of my Lego Basement

    Bare with me as this is my first attempt at making an YouTube video. Thoughts, comments, suggestions and subscriptions are most welcome!
  2. Hi everybody, I created a new (stop motion) music video about my completely illuminated Lego city. The song was composed by a professional musican. There are also many movies references in it. I hope you will enjoy it. I'm happy about every feedback and/or like.

    [MOC] #75 U-Haul 15' Rental Truck

    LEGO MOC#75 15' U-Haul Rental Truck Ford E350 My latest MOC is the familiar U-Haul truck in the US. It is base on the Ford E350 model and 15' long version. I also created a stop motion animation for this truck. Welcome to take a look: More MOC on my homepage:
  4. This station was inspired by several sets, chief among them 4554 (Metro Station) and 71044 (Disney Train and Station). I added a fireplace and a different, more vertically-sloped roof to the 4554 style station with the attic windows from 71044 as a bonus. The lattice windows in the arches are my own idea, while the lower half of all the windows comes from set the ones in 21324. (123 Sesame Street) The model is modular, and features a detachable track side platform, ground floor, and lift-away second floor and tower roof sections. The words "LEGO City" go on the awning above the platform entrance, while the year 1891 (100 years before set 4554 was released) goes on the street side as the date of construction completion. (Both of these should be in official printed 1 x 1 tile letters.) The street side features the same basic look as the other side, but in this case their is a staircase.... which could cause a problem for luggage trolleys and wheelchairs as there is no ramp. (It doesn't have one as they weren't required in the 1890's, when this was "built") One could easily be added to the platform ends, however. The top floor features the tiny station master's office, which includes fixtures such as a desk, telephone, and some filing cabinets. The ground floor features the ticket counter (with old fashioned cash registers), indoor seating, and cozy fireplace. Drinks on the white podium are also available for sale to thirsty travelers. Every floor and platform is grouped separately in LDD. Speaking of which, the file can be found at this link to it's Bricksafe page. As it stands right now, the parts collecting from my personal stash has started for this model, so it should be built by the start of summer, at the latest. Thoughts, comments, and complaints welcome!

  7. So, this is a little more simplified version of my LEGO theory posted here in response to another post that explains my theory on how most of the original LEGO themes exists in the same universe. The Dinosaur Era: Where dinosaurs existed. (Roughly 180 million years). The Castle/Vikings/Ninja Era: The era in which the LEGO realistic Castle, Vikings, and Ninja themes existed (all starting roughly about 1500 years before the LEGO Town era, and ending about 200 years before LEGO Town). LEGO Pirates Era: (Starting roughly about 200 years before LEGO Town). The era in which Pirates existed. In the last 50 years of pirates, the buildings are transferring into buildings that resemble Town slightly. Villages start to colonize more and expand. Town/Island Era: After the era of Pirates, the LEGO Town era begins, with technology really just beginning to develop, with steam trains still being active and even a few diesel trains. They also start using gasoline-powered vehicles , including airplanes to get around between various towns and villages. The main LEGO town is called LEGO Town. There are several LEGO islands, including the one we see in the LEGO Island games called LEGO Island. This lasts for about 5 years. Space Era: After about 5 years, spaceflight is discovered, and all of the towns and villages gather together to create the LEGO Exploration Force, launching the LEGO Exploration Space Division which will go into space, and the LEGO Exploration Earth Division, which is when Rock Raiders starts. Hearing about the LEGO Space Exploration Space Division, one of the islands called "Blacktron" starts their own space division called the Blacktron Space Division. After meeting in space, the LEGO Exploration Space Division and the Blacktron Space Division are at war, and that causes the creation of the LEGO Defense Force, creating Space Police, and the Space Police are launched into space to stop the fighting. During their mission to stop the fighting, they meet some aliens, which, after a misunderstanding, causes the aliens to be at war with the humans, which makes all of the human space divisions to come together to defeat the aliens. The war causes them to go into deep space, and when they get there they make peace and most of the humans go back to Earth, with a small selection of the Space Police stay to keep everything peaceful. When they return home, the Space Division and Space Police have movies about them, as well as movies based on the adventures of Johnny Thunder and movies based on the Rock Raiders, which is where the LEGO Studios theme comes in. Using the technology they got from space, technology starts to fill the various towns in the LEGO continents and that helps expansion and monorails are introduced as well as some electric trains. Sports will also be expanding into Soccer, Snowboarding, Basketball, Racing, and Ice Hockey. LEGO Town also creates the LEGO Arctic Exploration Force to explore the arctic. World City Era: Lasting 2 years, things are peaceful for the most part, but in a city called "Agentopolis", the LEGO Agents are created when a bunch of supervillians escape, and LEGO Alpha Team is created. LEGO City Era: In 2005, LEGO World City becomes LEGO City. In another city, a bunch of science experiments using dinosaur DNA escape and that makes the city create the Anti-Mutant Defense Force to defeat the lizards. In 2008, Mars Mission is launched, where they discover more aliens that are more peaceful and the Space Police don't need to step in for the aliens and humans to make peace. Things are peaceful for a while until an old space police transmitter sends a signal to Earth using an old code saying that there are two different groups of hostile aliens headed to Earth. As a result, two different defense forces are created: Galaxy Squad and the Alien Defense Unit. The Alien Defense Unit protects Earth while Galaxy Squad goes into space to protect Earth. After a short time, the aliens are defeated. After that, a brand new Space Police force is introduced to go into different galaxies to keep everything safe. After a few years, Solomon Blaze, former Galaxy Squad member, gets a call from his uncle, former Agent Chase of the LEGO Agents who is now in charge of the LEGO Defense Force says he wants him to lead a new team of agents called "Ultra Agents" after a bunch of supervillians escape and after a year, the villains are defeated. There is peace after that. (In 2013, Rex Fury breaks free but is captured after about a week).
  8. So, I've had this thought for a while, and that's when should LEGO cancel City? I suggest cancel it some time between 2020-2025. I think City needs an overhaul. Town lasted 1978-1996, World City 2003-2004, and City has been running since 2005, making it 13 years old this year. I think the golden age of City has come and gone. Now, City has had some good sets in recent years like the 2013 "Racing BikeTransporter" and the 2018 "Pickup and Caravan", but to be honest, I don't think City should be pushing Police as much, though it does sell. I do really like the older city, World City, and Town sets, but recent City sets, adding big yellow net shooters don't really work half the time, and they just look kinda ugly. And with all the new pieces LEGO could develop given about 5-10 years, this could be a big improvement from the current one, and they could re-release polybags of old polybags to help fill the void of City, and then around 2030-ish, come back with a new name to relauch the theme. Now, LEGO could take a big hit and tank if this does happen, but LEGO, as far as I know, didn't tank when Town was cancelled, so this would be interesting, and I would like to see if anyone out there agrees with me.
  9. I got my space port recently. I think it's an amazing set. Knowing that the City division of Lego does listen to its older fanbase sometimes has put mh mind at ease. I usually nod my sets and for this one, I ended up removing the little roller coaster piece as I felt it unnecessary. I can actually make the astronauts walk to the shuttle.But I love the feature where you can stick your android inside the building and pretend the team is controlling it. Detail in a smaller package is an admirable thing. I also love how the rocket holders move when you pick the rocket up. Overall, this gets a 100% from me. Sidenote: I'm glad they made this a 7+ set. Smart move Lego

    60053 vs. 60113

    I know you guys probably know about my bigotry towards automobiles that are 6 studs wide. However, when it comes to race cars, I think it works. I own both 60053 and 60113 and they are very nice vehicles. I would like to hope that the race cars that we are supposed to receive in 2020 start a trend of making race cars for Lego City. I do worry that it won't happen since Speed Champions exists. Though Speed Champions seems to be targeted towards OFOLs than CFOLs.
  11. I think it would be a great idea. For those of you out there who may be confused, vehicle packs would basically be like people packs. Only with vehicles. We know that certain sets help keep City relevant not necessarily because of the buildings themselves, but because of the vehicles that complement the building. Even though some people may think the idea is stupid and pointless, I think it would be fun and interesting. It's fun to take things that child Legonfans love and exploit it to it's full advantage. So without further ado. Do you think vehicle packs are good for Lego City? Sound off in the comments.
  12. Welp! Finally, I have found the time to do a little Q&A.....if that's okay to do here! If its not okay, please feel free to remove this admins. But anyway, I'd like to start a topic on vehicles - particularly ones we like! For me personally, my favorite vehicle has to be the bus from City set number 60154. I just love buses and I do drive a bus for a living. Truthfully speaking, I kinda wish that was a sub theme for that year. But I guess Lego knows best. So without further to do, what's your favorite LEGO vehicle?

    Lego City 2020 Ideas

    So.....I hear that there are going to be more fire sets for City in 2020. 2020 is also a guaranteed police year as police comes every three years, usually following the fire year (which was this year). The 2020 wave for City seems to really be the topic of conversation as of now too! But other than the police sets and the added fire sets, what else would you like to see? Let me know down below.

    Lego City Zombie And Lego Thor Help

    Lego City Zombie And Lego Thor Help - Lego Stop Motion Animation Link video: Building the LEGO CITY city of The LEGO CITY Movie LEGO CITY city is, of course, a colorful brick-based toy. In fact, the LEGO CITY company adheres to strict color palettes that then had to be replicated in the film. But, as production designer, Freckelton says his color choices were not actually limiting. “The thing about LEGO CITY is that it’s all about context,” he observes. “When you’re up close on something, when you put a yellow banana a minifig's hand, in someone’s hand and it’s yellow, you can actually take that banana and stick a couple of studs on the end of it and it looks like a gun - it’s an interesting process of how you use them totally changes the way you perceive them in the movie.” To accurately portray LEGO CITY characters and vehicles, Animal simply relied upon, unsurprisingly, the Danish company’s own freely available tool - LEGO CITY Digital Designer. “Everyone, including our art department, could use LDD to mock up highly accurate LEGO CITY models from which we could calculate the bricks that would be required, and build these as subdivision surface assets,” explains CG supervisor Aidan Sarsfield. “LDD was a perfect starting point as it uses the official LEGO CITY Brick Library and effectively simulates the connectivity of each of the bricks." The next step in building the LEGO CITY models was to convert the LDD file into a ‘shell’ of various types. Unlike the LDD models the shells would no longer be made of unique bricks, but rather a single mesh that had been optimized to remove hidden geometry. These shells were used downstream to build both characters and environments," says Sarsfield. Animal's proprietary geometry format for this purpose is called 'bobject'. "At the very front end it was a brick based approach", says Sarsfield. "As it moves down the pipeline, that gets baked into more of a standard geometry approach, but we maintain the connection to the brick database - each one of the bricks is recorded in the model dataset.” The actual brick modeling was done in Maya, with asset and layout builds achieved in Maya and XSI. “When we got into layout,” adds Sarsfield, “the team would position all the instances of the buildings and we would record that in a proprietary config file. The text file would specify where all the assets in an environment should go. Using these config files, and a detailed shot database. We would then construct all of those things into a shot for animation. The Animators would then get presented with the display versions of those shells - that’s all openGL optimized. They would then animate in XSI.” Interestingly, LEGO CITY builds came at several stages in the process - from the art department, and the LEGO CITY Group itself, the Asset Department, and even from animators who had the ability to re-conform bricks and pieces to construct background characters, especially in the Cloud Cuckoo Land sequence. Having actual LEGO CITY reference was crucial in the build process too, since Animal Logic could add details they saw in real models. At times they even placed the minifigures under microscopes to capture the seam lines, dirt and grime. “We spent an inordinate amount of time selling the detail,” describes Sarsfield. “At one point we were talking about putting serial numbers in there, which was crazy, but it does lend this incredible authenticity.”

    HOW TO BUILD....A drinking fountain!

    Hi everybody! I've decided to start sharing a few ideas and tips for building some of my own creations - starting with this minifig-scale drinking fountain. Why not have a go?! Uses less than 30 pcs.... (click this link, not the pic, for full instruction pics)
  20. Hey everyone, i wanted to share my Lego City with you guys. Its part Modular Sets and Part Moc. I hope you enjoy it and i would love to hear some feedback. :) It took me about 4 years to create it, and its still not done. I will rework China-town, because I want to get rid of the Ghostbusters building (It can't be opened the way it is placed, so I will move it to a shelf) and there will be two glass Towers on the spots, that are empty at the moment. Also the Hospital will be rebuild. for more Pictures visit:

    MOC: Bookstore for my town

    I love to read, so I decided my town should get a bookstore. So I made my own design, with a full interior. The outside is made with a SNOT technique for the facade. I've also used some modified 1 x 2 tiles with balls for the details on the top. I love this piece and always wanted to use it. So I did. On the ground floor there are some bookcases with books you can buy, and of course a cash register. The second floor (see video link below, don't have a picture yet, sorry!) features more of a relaxing room. There's another book case, but also a couch where you can sit and check out the novels you've found. There are also some computers, to look up some stuff (like the book you had in mind, but can't remember the title of). I think it turned out to be a nice addition to my city. Very pleased with the end result, if I say so myself. For more details, I made a YouTube video.
