    [MOC] Kenworth W900

    My dear fellow Eurobricks people, finally, again after a too long while, I managed to prepare something edible (I hope ) out of the finest ABS we all love so much. Let me introduce you my take on Kenworth W900... I’m a bit ashamed to admit, that this MOC was finished already in early 2018 and it took me until now, to prepare the photos and a video of it. This was built for our LUG’s 20th exhibition KockeFest, that took place in March 2018. It was the time when LEGO Technic Mack Anthem came out, so the theme of Technic section of the exhibition was, naturally, "container trucks and container handling machinery" in same scale as the Mack. We agreed on slightly longer containers, because, let’s be honest, the one on the Mack is a bit too short… so here it is… This whole eighteen-wheeler is some 108 studs long (87 cm) and 16 studs wide (13 cm), well the wheels might be getting close to 17 studs. The truck alone is about 50 studs (40 cm) long. The size of the containers, we agreed upon, was 15 x 15 x 37 studs (+1 for the door handles so 38 actually) and they represented 20 ft containers. As you can see from the photos, my semi-trailer could carry 2 of them. I used 1 PF L motor for propulsion and PF servo for steering. Another PF L motor was used for remote fifth wheel lock. It could be powered both with standard PF receivers and LEGO AAA battery boxes or with Buwizz. It was all hidden in the cabin’s sleeper. There was another AAA battery box on the trailer to power PF M motor for the trailer supports. Front axle is not suspended, but uses virtual pivot steering instead. It was the only way to make so tight mudguards above them and although steering angle is not the best, I think it did the job fine enough. Due to the bulky setup of servo and virtual pivot steering, I was a bit lazy under the hood, so there is nothing else there. I guess I could mock up some engine, but the way the hood was attached (it can’t be opened), it felt a bit pointless. There is some unrealistic pendular suspension on both rear axles, but I couldn’t do more on such a thin chassis. I used rubber connectors as dampers. Because the chassis is so slim, it slightly twists when throttle is applied. Here’s how this lady looks topless and below the skirt… There are some minor details in and on the the cabin, the sleeper was, as already mentioned, filled with electronics. Since this is a semi, it needs a fifth wheel, of course. It is remotely locked and I totally took the cream off of the brilliant 6x6 Truck with Tipper Semi Trailer by Pipasseyoyo, with great ratchet design for the lock. Ratchet for the fifth wheel lock below the sleeper… Fifth wheel + hitch/tow ball (I hope that’s what it’s called)... The trailer was built with Technic bricks - studs down and was sturdy enough for the two containers. It had its own receiver and battery box to operate the supports. The two tandem axles were damped with rubber connectors and adapted to the ground really well. Please forgive me for not filming the movement of the two . I hope the photos will suffice. Sexy back… Some posing to conclude... ...and a short video of course… Thank you for reading and watching, I hope you like it, Best regards, Miha
  4. This is a 1:8.3 scale Technic MOC car I am making powered by EV3. Things have been going well until I ran into some space issues with some Large Motors. I wanted them to be vertical, but they were too big, so I'm trying ways to get more space so the motors won't be very visible when I build the exterior. In the right picture, I positioned the motors at an angle to save space, however it may make the rear too long. The maximum room I have (according to blueprints) for the motors is 2.5 inches away from the rear wheels, so I need to save a lot of space or I have to expand the rear. All in all, I have to position the motors where they are not too high or not too far from the rear wheels. I'd thought I post this issue I have because I wonder if there is any other better way to do this. Thanks in advance for any thoughts or advice.
  5. I've noticed a few comments on the forums recently about stickers. I need to ask something though. What's wrong with stickers? Stickers are like condiments. They bring out the flavor in sets. I don't know about you guys, but I don't see the big deal. I couldn't care less if 70 stickers were on a set. What about you guys?
  6. Pumpkin is significant symbol of Halloween. Combing Pumpkin and skeleton horse carriage will be excellent idea. The cabin of carriage is pumpkin shape with two eyes and nose on it. There are two doors can be opened. Three skeletons and one big boss, vampire included in this set. One skeleton will operate this carriage, two other guarding at the back. Four skeleton horses are pulling the carriage. Between those two at the front and two at the rear can be turned. The carriage front wheels can also be turned. The flexible setting can let you set the model in different position. I believe this model is definitely good for kids to play for long time, and a great decoration for Halloween. This model total pieces count is 355. I hope you will like and support this project.

    HMS Surprise

    Just browsed through the forum and could not find this anywhere. Think I just forgot to share it. Mentioned her some time ago in the General MOC-Discussion, WIP-Help, and Teaser Thread. If she is hiding somewhere in the forum, I do hope someone has the chops to remove this topic. Scale 1:40’ish L: 150 cm B: 26 cm H: 114 Bricks approx. 19300. Looking back at my earlier designs I found that my version of the HMS Surprise, just like the HMS Ontario, was somewhat wanting. This is a model of the HMS Surprise launched as the corvette Unité in 1794. In 1796, The Royal Navy conquered, refitted and renamed her. She later on chased pirates in the Caribbean for several years. The ship plays a central role in the Aubery-Maturin stories. This includes the movie from 2003 Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. The HMS Rose, which was later, renamed HMS Surprise, plays the “role” as HMS Surprise. Neat, but somewhat confusing. Being notoriously bad at taking photos of my creations there is some Renders below, these are also in the General MOC-Discussion, WIP-Help, and Teaser Thread. …but you need to look at the LDD file to get a view of the details of the creation. Find it at MOCPAGES http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/452403 She has been on display at LW Copenhagen 2019. A Swedish AFOL has taken some fine Pictures from the event on this link. Hope it is ok that I link to this https://www.flickr.com/photos/86394332@N03/47062421172/in/album-72157705321073761/ There are also some more photos including WIP at my Flickr page. https://www.flickr.com/photos/131641614@N06/with/46031790204/
  8. 1:17 LEGO® Porsche 99X Electric The TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team is using the Porsche 99X Electric for the first time in the 2019/2020 season. In mid-October 2019, the Porsche 99X Electric will be in action for the first time during test driving on the racetrack. The electric drive technology "Mission E" was already introduced by Porsche in 2010 with the first Porsche hybrid race car, the 911 GT3 R Hybrid. The 800-volt technology used in the Formula E is also used in the production sports car from Porsche, the Porsche Taycan. The Porsche 99x Electric accelerates from 0-100 km / h in 2.8 seconds. LEGO® 1:17 scale replica of the Porsche 99X Electric consists of 458 LEGO® elements. By Malte Dorowski - malte-dorowski.com

    Cog

    Cog or Kogge A cog is a type of ship that first appeared in the 10th century, and was widely used from around the 12th century on. Eventually, around the 14th century, the cog reached its structural limits. This model is a somewhat generic version of this ship. However, some features narrows it down to being from around 1300, +-50 years. The ship type was a northern European brake from the sleek Viking ship. The need for spacious and relatively inexpensive ships led to the development of this trader workhorse. Fore and stern castles would be added for defense against pirates, or to enable use of these vessels as warships. It is in minifig-scale or 1:40’ish. The model will have the dimensions Length: 68 cm, Height: 75 cm (with stand), Width: 19 cm (Beam) There is approx. 4300 bricks in the model.
  10. Hi! I have recreated Gusteau's kitchen with 2800 lego bricks and submitted it on lego ideas! What do you think of the project? 10 000 votes can make this an official set, and I would love if you support for it on lego ideas here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/32190c3d-9497-4b3d-b288-3bb83decc5b4

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Hi all, I figured that instead of hijacking everyone's threads with similar questions about modulars, to just create one thread where people can ask questions and the like. This way we are not junking up specific topics with questions about multiple modulars. I look forward to the discussion with everyone! ------------------------- First question for someone. In the Green Grocer instructions, I am having a hard time telling what color a few pieces are. I may just be colorblind, but I wanted to ask someone who has the set/would know. In step 6 of the Green Grocer, the part call out lists: 2 - 1 x 1 plates; 1 - 1 x 1 tile What color are these? Also, are the tiles also black that surround the white/medium blue tiles on the inside of the shop? Thank you!
  12. I've been working on computer generated Lego landscapes and I thought I'd share my progress here. This landscape was generated in Python 3.7, which created the LDraw file which was then rendered in Studio 2 - Hope you like the images
  13. It's official: what we've been doing for the last half of year together with LEGO was turning a real-life Liebherr R 9800 into an RC model. And guess who drove it :D More video content will follow soon! My behind-the-scenes video: And finally, here's a brief behind-the-scenes video from LEGO:
  14. Hi there, I've developed a very annoying habit in the last few years. I randomly build pickups and other 4x4's. Even bought a real one. Anyway, the latest one is quite a biggy (sizewise) thanks to the planetary hubs. I've found a trick build them into solid axles with a practical ground clearance. This trick is going to be conroversial here. But start up with the video instead: All pics to be found here: https://bricksafe.com/pages/Attika77/ultimate-pickup In the comments under the video, noble members of our community noted, that there are parts which could solve the 1/4 stud misery. (if you don't know what is that, off you go, and whatch the video to the end! ) One of these is the 14t gear from the old diffs: I've made the attempt, but due to that collar on the bottom (top on the pic) it is too wide and puts srain on the drivline, making it hard to turn it by hand, so it is off the table unfortunatelly. So I speak for myself when I say, cuting those axles worth it. Not a rare piece, and costs 1 cent on bricklink, but only because there is no smaller value in the currency itself. In return the design prooved itself very reliable. Another "weakness" of the axle is the inperfect geometry. The wheelhubs aren't completelly vertical. There is about 1 degree tilting inside on the top. /---\ Before overdramatising this atribute, think, if you've noticed it in the video? Apart from the axles, the rest of the truck is the product of those years I've mentioned above. The essence of it is a simplest possible drivetrain: And a steering solution refined for non-rack steering: (The render is made of an older version, hence the different connector) If you don't belive your eyes, yes I choose to use 4x2 beams to form steering arms. It looks savage, but it is doing the job very well, brings ackerman geometry in the game. It does not hold the wheels rock solid of course, but in practicality it isn't noticable on the field. I've got a rack steering solution as well, but that brings the servo down A, onto the front axle (I don't do that. Ever ) B, into the mid chassis, where I don't have room for that. So we keep that for another build. Also has a working steering wheel using the rear output from the servo. ame old bevel system I've been using in most of my builds. Check the 1st episode of the pickup saga for more on that. Suspension Solid axles on a 3 link setup. It is kinda made up design, slightly inspired by the rear suspension of my Isuzu Trooper. Changing the shocks, or their hinge point on the top, gives 3 different ride height and suspension stiffness. The black, soft springs give a softer, relaxed, lower stance to it, while the dark grey shocks (known from the set 8880) are lifting the truck to a practical maximum, but still can reach full articulation. Not in all situations good to have your truck up in the sky. Like the climbing in the video. With low shock setting it made 52 degrees, but 47 "only" on big wheels and lifted shocks. The center of gravity moves with your ground clearance. That's about it, the rest is smoke-screen, like the body, and fancy doors. Oh, here is a fun fact: When it came to the seats, I realised I have 2 adjustable seats salvaged from a lorry build from about 5 years ago. Luckily they fit perfect so just made a rear bench in the same style. A non adjustable lazy style. Please feel free to ask about it, or just say something about cutting axles. I hope you find something useful here to take home with you.

    LEGO's Lead User Lab

    Lego Ambassador Network - The LEGO Group is Set to Launch its Brand-New Lead User Lab
  18. So I don't know if this topic has been done yet but I am just going to do it anyways , I hope to start a discussion about fake lego minifigures especially and maybe the quality of their bricks So I probably won't post any pictures simply because I don't have any fake lego, but would like to say a few things that I know about it at least... I purchase most of my LEGO off of eBay, especially the hundreds of clone figures to put into my army, but recently have noticed these wierd Chinese counterpart copy of these clone figures appearing all over when I search for REAL Lego. You can easily tell the difference from the fake just because how bad it looks, but it is sad to see that many companies try to pass these as real Lego figures... I have not purchased any of these and do not plan on it, just seeing these figures in collections looks off and awkward, and supporting those companies is not something I wish to do when I don't like what they're doing. The parts is a another story. I have several sets of GOOD QUALITY USA made offbrand that actually works quite well with Lego. These look like Lego, and is more difficult to tell the difference than that of the figures. So does anyone own any of these figures? What are your thoughts on the quality and how they compare with LEGO? Maybe even a side by side figure comparison in a picture would help. Again it will be my look that this gets merged. So please don't merge if you don't have to... thanks, just wanted to potentially hear a couple thoughts.
  19. Hi, In theory, should be coming a new update for LDD, no?? Someone knows something about that?
  20. These are builds inspired by or taken from the first MMO made for Lego: LEGO Universe. This game had very few real world items in sets, but two things did come out: ...a astronaut for people who pre-ordered the game in 2010... ...and a rocket that was modular in the style of the game (Nose + Cockpit + Engine) and was released in a LEGO Club event to build your own rocket. (both pictures from Brick Link) The game lasted barely past it's first birthday (October 2010 was when it started), with the plug being pulled on February 1st 12:01 AM 2012. As a testament to the game I played and loved, I built some models that continue the story past 2012 and into 2015 and beyond. Here are those builds: The Neo-Nexus Force, pilots, droids, and officers. The NIFT-E robot was designed in 2015 to compliment the thousands of Sentry (set 4416) series robots produced in 2006 by the X-POD corporation for the original Nexus Force founders. Thirty-four of these newer robots were produced in 2018 as a test batch, called the Nexus Iron Friendly Teammate - Engineer class (NIFT-E) for use as spaceship ground-crew and heavy engineering duties, including fueling and heavy duty maintenance, computer updating, and guiding ships into landing zones. They are used alongside human counterparts who work on the harder to reach areas of a ship's engine, and on life support systems. Each human master mechanic (of which every base has at least two or three of them, plus several apprentices) is assigned an NIFT-E counterpart, in which they are equal partners working towards the same goal: keeping the ships flying, the base humming with life, and repair bay as empty as possible in case of emergencies. I copied this back in 2012 from a desktop download from the old LEGO Universe game. It was carefully cut out and switched to gray scale to save ink. It is the logo of the Nexus Force. Due to the Nexus Force logo not being found anywhere but a expensive mini-figure torso from a limited edition polybag, I have decided to change the logo to something different. This new logo is seen in the 2014 CITY Arctic sets. I figure this is my in-universe explanation of the logo change: The Nexus force landed on an ice world named DY-17, (this was soon to be renamed Ice Station Destiny) in a bit of desperation, as the Maelstrom had damaged their escape cruiser, the Bright Hope, to the point of near hyper-drive core failure. The ships sensors located no technology on the surface, and not many life forms, but a lot of geothermal activity in the form of large heat/steam vents from the core to the surface, which could be used for emergency power. The ship landed, and soon the base camp for the crew of the Bright Hope was set up. It was then discovered the planet had many mineral deposits that happen to be compatible with the metal in the Hyper-drive cooling system. So, the minerals began to be mined, and pretty soon the crew had a good operation going that was almost self-sufficient and very eco-friendly. A vote was taken, and the crew chose to stay on the ice world they re-named Ice Station Destiny, as the planet had supplied all of their wants and needs. The logo was repainted to show the original Nexus logo as a distant star, signifying the journey taken by the Bright Hope to their new home world, which was symbolized by the ice-covered world on the logo. The Bright Hope and crew were eventually discovered two years after their landing on Ice Station Destiny by the Norstas of the nearby world of Beta Polaris. Bob formed a friendship with this like-minded race, which eventually became an Alliance between the two forces, and the rest is history. This moon base-like space base model was inspired by set 60036 (Arctic Base Camp), with light-poles from set 60062 (Arctic Icebreaker) and a sensor array from from set 60111. (Fire Utility Truck) The base consists of six separate, interchangeable, modular sections, all of which have opening roof / wall sections for ease of access. The base consists of six separate, interchangeable, modular sections. These include: computer command center, hallway turn, laboratory, hallway with control tower, straight hallway with landing pad, and finally the break room. Each section has opening roof hatches to get at the inside details. The break room is mostly taken from set 60036, with a sensor array from set 60111. (Fire Utility Truck) These computers analyze rock samples looking for fuel traces to be mined. This module leads outside to the base's elevated landing pad. This tower makes landing large spacecraft easier, and helps keep an eye out for unwanted guests.It sits on top of the previous module This hallway is empty for now, but will be filled later. This corner hall module also leads outside via a back door. (not visible here) The brain of the base: the computer control room. SPACE VEHICLES This ship was originally set 70816, Benny's spaceship (x3), with the Unkiitty seat and radar dish removed in favor of a skylight and laser gun turret instead. The sliding wings were redesigned to be stationary and thus provide space under the turret for commander Bob. The ship also has separate passageways for crew to walk so they don't have to go outside to go to Bob, engineering, or the bridge. More recently, I combined the ship with a more elongated nose taken from the 2015 DC Comics set 76028 (Darksied Invasion). I was inspired to build this model by this cool ship by Oran Cruzen as seen here. The ship has three areas for up to eight crew to be placed, with passageways for the figures to "walk" from section to section. The rear of the ship has three engines and a rotating, elevating laser turret above. This rocket was originally poly-bag number 55001 from the failed 2010 MMO Lego Universe. Just like in the game, it can split into three modular parts connected by Technic axles. These sections are the following: -Nose-Cone -Cockpit -Engine The rockets can be dissembled into the three component sections and are interchangeable with each other, and with about 15+ other rockets available in LDD form from the Lego Universe Wiki. Also, the completed rockets can seat 1 mini-figure each. This small and nimble fighter was designed after looking at a Classic Space model I found on my hard-drive. (I think it was inspired by a model my brother bought off Brick-Link a couple years back.) Anyway, I then tore the model apart and have added four guns, larger wings, and the larger air intakes from my Nexus tower rocket. The ship features an enlarged cockpit with controls and seating for one figure. The rear of the model features one tail-fin and two engines exhaust ports. LAND VEHICLES This small orange automobile was originally designed as a Mad Max-like vehicle by builder Hachiroku as seen here until I turned back the clock on it into a regular, non-apocalypse version. I then decided it would work well for Bob from the Nexus Force, formerly of the LEGO Universe MMO from 2010 - 2011. (R.I.P.) I added taillights and a license plate to the rear of the car. Their is only room for one mini-figure to be seated, but the space behind the driver's seat can hold some small cargo, such as a 2 x 2 x 2 (with tile lid) crate. This model is a slightly modified version of set 60033, Arctic Ice Crawler that I call the Mobile Ice Driller . Whereas the original set has a crane hook, this one has a much more useful drill bit. The drill is used for mining energy crystals embedded deep within the ice of the frozen world on which the Neo Nexus Force is stationed. This is a very slightly modified version of set 60035: Arctic Outpost. All I really did to this one was add the symbol to the front fender. The inside of the mobile outpost is a lab, complete with Bunsen burner and microscope with crystal sample. It seems the computer hanging from the ceiling bar is off right now, as the scientist is out collecting more samples that were dug out with the Mobile Ice Drill. The rear of the model is pretty sparse in details, and as such, their isn't much to say about it. The snow speeder you see here is a simple vehicle to aid in fetching luggage and equipment across the base. It is armed with a flare gun and a radio. These come in mighty handy when the sun sets and temperatures plummet to well below minus 125 Fahrenheit! This is a heavily modified version of 2018 Star Wars set 75217 (Imperial Conveyex Transport) mashed up into an 8-wide version of my 1950's Aerotrain model. The model also features inside details and Jacobs bogies besides the lift away side panels of 75217 and removable cab roof. The roof of the engineer's cab comes off to place a figure at the controls. Each of the four cars can hold four seats each behind the two fold-up side walls. These are the four passenger cars, which are linked together in pairs of two by Jacobs bogies. They can have more two-car sets dropped in or out, but the rear-most car set is the minimum. (as the last car carriers the four tail markers) MICRO SCALE This space station (named Odyssey II) orbits the ice world of Beta Polaris, pointed at the direction of the trans-dimensional rip in space-time that leads to Lego Universe, ready to report any threat that may emerge from the space between spaces. Odyssey II is both an advanced weapons research platform and a forum for great minds and leaders from throughout the universe.The station is the headquarters for the Neo Nexus Force, (in cooperation with the Norsta race, of course) and the home of Nexus - Polaris University. This school focuses on the meaning of time and space itself, plus performing experiments on hyper-space streamlining, artificial gravity production, theoretical physics, and sports. (Let's go Nexo-nauts!) Their are meeting rooms on one of the half of the two arms of the station, which provides the gravity for this section like a centrifuge. As such, this section is laid out so that the "ground" is towards the ends of the arms, with the center having lower gravity and the non-public front and back of the station have none and you can float weightless in. The other one of the arms features a large research facility, with many libraries and even a small university focused on the study of space, time and the many mysteries therein. The station also has "the wheel". This module provides living quarters for all the university staff, visitors, and station crew, and gravity is provided by the "ground" being the outer wall of the arms. The engines on this station allow it to move if need be, though this has never happened on a large scale beyond course correction and maintaining balance in it's orbit of Beta Polaris. The solar panels on the station are actually detectors of chaos energy, which would mean the breach between Universes is open once more and the evil of the Maelstrom is coming through. This would mean the station would be evacuated of civilian personnel and the military forces bolstered, ready to attack the swirling mass of darkness. Here we see one of the Neo-Nexus Force ships (the cruiser Bright Hope) docked on on of the four "gravity locks". These allow for the ship to sync up with the station and crew / passengers to disembark the ship. The Bridge Hope in miniature scale. (This was designed by my brother to be a counterpart to the Odyssey II space station. It is based off my mini-figure scale ship of the same name: Bright Hope) (In reality the space station model was inspired by this model by DcotorSpock888: https://www.flickr.com/photos/dr_spock_888/20558633496/in/dateposted/ plus the Babylon 5 and Star Trek TV series', the Star Wars universe, and the old LEGO Universe massive multiplayer online game.) FINAL THOUGHTS Well, that's all I've built so far, but that's not the end of the story or the models. Scott Bourgeois from MOCpages has made some pretty awesome stuff related to the Neo Nexus Force, their first allies, the peaceful Norstas (from the planet Beta Polaris in orbit of the the North Star) and the common enemy, the Xantukans. (inspired by the snake cultists from Ninjago) Here is a link to his Neo Nexus Force page with related builds: http://www.mocpages....lder.php/189764 EDITED 9/27/16: added real pics of the Robots, bob's car and updated digital screen shots of the fighters. The real pics of the space ships should be here by Sunday 10/2/16. EDITED 9/30/16: Added more real life pictures, this time of the space fighter-ships and the entire base as it sits now. EDITED 1/29/17: added new spaceship pics, and photos of Bob's car. EDITED 6/24/17: Added updated real life and digital pictures... new base pics coming as soon as the postman delivers the necessary parts! EDITED 7/1/17: Added real life pictures for update 4.0. Enjoy! EDITED 1/18/19: Added real life pictures for update 5.0, including the revised space cruiser Bright Future and a anew car for Bob. (more to come soon!) EDITED 10/9/19: Added digital screenshots of the upcoming Astro-Train consist. Still need to take more recent real world pictures of updated and new models! Any thoughts / ideas / complaints would be appreciated!

    Carrack

    The Carrack, Caravela, Nau, Nao, Neef or Kraak. The ship type was all the rage in the 15th century. It was important for me that it seemed like a reasonable evolvement of the cog, and as a precursor for the galleon, being closer to the latter. Trying to avoid the most out there designs of this type; I have mainly used different plans for the Santa Maria and a great deal of sense. It is in minifig-scale or 1:40’ish. The model will have the dimensions Length: 85 cm, Height: 75 cm (with stand), Width: 23 cm (Beam) There is approx. 6400 bricks in the model.

    [MOC] THE QUEEN BRICKTORIA PUB

    Hi everyone I'd like to share with you my second MOC which I have been working on over the past few weeks. For this project I decided to tackle a subject very close to my heart - the Great British Pub! So without further ado... Grab yourself a pint and join me for a guided tour of The Queen Bricktoria! As you can see this is a modular style corner building with 3 floors built on a 32x32 base plate. The design is intended to be reminiscent of British town centre pubs or more specifically the style of pubs we'd see in London. The Minifigures There are 7 minifigs with the model. The 3 characters below are the pub workers. From left to right we have the Owner/Landlord and his daughter the barmaid. The guy with the guitar is a local singer who has been booked to play a gig at the pub. The 4 figures below are the pub regulars. The guy with the beard is the typical sort of old gent we find in many pubs propping up the bar and boring everyone to death with their stories of the good old days. The guy in the green top and the girl are boyfriend and girlfriend. Level 1 - The Bar Outside the building we have a busy street corner. I've included an iconic British red phone box and an outside covered seating area. There is also a sign board advertising events etc at the pub. The main entrance leads us in to the bar/lounge area. Inside we have a well stocked bar and a cozy fireplace. There are also tables and bar stool for the minifigs to sit and enjoy their drinks. Brown carrots make pretty good beer pump handles. At the back of the bar is a staircase leading us up to level 2. Level 2 - Pool and Darts Room On the second level is a games room featuring a Pool table and Dart board. There is also a pool cue rack and a shelf with trophies won by the resident darts team. At the back of the room is another staircase that leads to level 3. Level 3 - Live Music Room Level 3 has a stage for Live Music gigs and Karaoke. On the stage we have a keyboard, guitar, amps and microphone. Also on this level is more seating for the minifigs and a door that leads to a small balcony seating area. Oh dear!!! The singer seems to be a bit of a hit with the ladies. The Finished Model Here is a picture of the Queen Bricktoria next to my first MOC design, The Convenience store, as you can see my new MOC is much much bigger. Another picture below shows the pub next to one of the official modulars, to help give a sense of the size of the model. Thanks very much for reading and I hope you like my newest MOC. There are more pictures of it on my Flickr page so feel free to check them out and let me know what you think.
  23. The Castle of Captain Sabertooth is our contribution to a larger Captain Sabertooth (Kaptein Sabeltann) layout built by Scandinavian AFOLs. The whole layout will be on display at LEGO World Copenhagen, Denmark next year. Illuminated using the Brickstuff lighting system, which can be seen in the YouTube video below.

    LEGO Clone Building Event (2002)

    Well hello, today I have some what of a question/general discussion about an item Please please don't merge this topic with anyone else or else I may not get an appropriate response So I recently purchased 34 of the Episode 2 clones from the gunship 7163 and ATTE 4482 back from 2002/2003. Here is a picture: I understand that sometime in May of 2002, Walmart held an event of which kids built as many of these in 1 minute as possible. They were under orders by lego to destroy all items after the event. Here is a look at that: As you can see this came with 150 clones. A few people managed to get away with these. I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find one of these? I would pay hundreds upon hundreds of dollars for something like this. I have seen them on eBay before, but they never had the box. What is someone's thought on this? Again, plz plz plz don't merge this topic and let it stand on its own. I know there may be similar topics, but I hope to get an appropriate response. Thank you.
