Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO TownFollowing the events of The LEGO Movie 2, Emmet Brickowski got to work on building Lucy and himself their dreamhouse again. He made it a bit bigger, a little better, and a lot stronger... just in case of any future Duplo attacks. It also features an attic for extra storage space, on top of the already-new second story. It is a modular style building, with removable floors and connection pins. The furniture (and house colors) were partially inspired by set 70831: Emmet's Dream House/Rescue Rocket, and a few of the official modular buildings. The car was modeled after the 1957 Plymouth Fury, made famous by the Stephen King book "Christine". (It's also a 1983 horror movie of the same name.) I took the original model of the Christine car made by user @hachiroku, which I would link to but can't seem to find anymore... The rear of the house has the entry point to the Duplo Fallout shelter. Why a fallout shelter? Well, the house is from the late 1950's after all... plus, the Duplo creatures are bit rougher in their attitudes and might go about doing something drastic if they don't get their way. Upstairs is the only bedroom, which is plenty big enough for Lucy & Emmett with their respective pictures on the wall above the bed. (They are stickers, sadly) Downstairs is the living and dining rooms, plus the kitchen. It also has the connection pins to hook into the modular building standard. I don't have any real world pictures of the vehicle (yet), but it's been built in real life for some years now... I just have to photograph it. Instead, here are the screenshots I took of the model in 2017 below: The car was modeled after a certain red '57 Plymouth Fury. I made the car black instead of red and took off the parts which I thought would be unstable. This meant taking off the rear wheel covers, revising the front bumper, adding different wheels and a few other small things. The rear of the car features a very ingenious set of taillights. Kudos to Hachiroku for this simple, elegant design! I've already started parts finding for the house part of this project (and I've made quite a dent in the price), so keep your eyes peeled for more pictures coming soon! (Also, I know the parts are kind of dusty, they've been sitting on my desk a while.) As usual, thoughts, complaints, comments and questions always welcome!
Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO TownFollowing the events of The LEGO Movie 2, Emmet got to work on building Lucy and himself their dreamhouse again. He made it a little bigger, a little better, and a lot stronger... just in case of any future Duplo attacks. It also features an attic for extra storage space, on top of the already-new second story. The model opens up like a dollhouse, and lock shut on a technic pin. The building itself (not the furniture) was originally inspired by pictures of Brick City Depot's "Winter Village Victorian House". The furniture (and house colors) were partially inspired by set 70831: Emmet's Dream House/Rescue Rocket, a few of the official modular buildings, and a bed from 75930: Indoraptor Rampage at Lockwood Estate Inside the front door is the living room, with record player, vintage rabbit-eared TV and Aqua-colored couch. In the next room, right across the divide, we have the stove / oven unit, and Planty happily sitting on a side table at the turn of the staircase. Upstairs, at the top of the landing, we have a grandfather clock, table lamp, and rotary telephone. Across the divide is the bed and a cabinet. Above that, is the empty attic. The rear of the house features a chimney flue connected to the kitchen stove. This is located right next to the back door, which is not really visible in this picture. (you can see it more in the front view, as it's on the side of the house, next to the kitchen area.) Inspired by this recent @hachiroku build here, which was based on the sand green Army staff car from Indiana Jones IV. This car fits in with Emmet's original smart car (from the first TLM) color-wise, but just a little older style-wise. The roof is held on by four studs, and is as such removable. I have also included light bluish gray upholstery for the back of the seat, which can fit two people inside. The rear has a license plate and two coverings partially obscuring the rear wheels. NOTES: I apologize for the visible dust in some places, it's been a month since I built these MOCs, and have now gotten a small backlog on picture-taking. (I just took these photo's today.) Any and all thoughts, comments, and questions are always welcome so please don't hesitate to do so!
