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!
Hey everyone! Noticed that we don't have a thread like this, so here I am creating it. Here, we should discuss the figures that were the predecessors to Bionicle - Slizers/Throwbots, Roboriders, and Voodoo Heads. Maybe we could even discuss other figures Lego has done through the years, such as the dolls from Scala, or Technic Figures. Should be fun!
Quite simply, what is the LEGO line that is the absolute least LEGO-like? For starters, Galidor's a prime candidate as many LEGO fans will tell you, as it was simply action figures that were only "construction" in how the limbs could be taken apart (which had the "beams" LEGO System, or whatever it's called). But it at least had some kind of (physical) LEGO connection of some sort in more or less every set. Is it the absolute least LEGO-like? Scala was initially LEGO themed jewelry that still kept the classic system, but when they brought it back it became essentially just dolls with separate LEGO elements thrown in at the side that weren't even being attached to anything, and when there was classic construction it was a different "flower-shaped" system than usual. Explore had some LEGO-ish sets in the Duplo ones they put out, but they also had a lot of what was essentially simple baby toys that weren't (physically) connectable to LEGO at all. Primo was still a construction system, but a partially incompatible and oversimplified one at that. Znap took a new Knex ripoff system, but it still utilized Technic. So what is the ultimate non-LEGOish LEGO line? (I'd put in a poll, but I not only lack enough posts, but also might miss a suggestion).
After Milan released his Tricycle Camper with Galidor series figure as driver, I thought about using Scala figures in big technic MOCs For example, this brave and cute man is 22 studs tall = 17.6 cm. It is 1:10 - 1:10,5 scale figure. As I understand, his arms and legs are customizable, so he can sit at one of MOC Supercars well. Am I right? another exmaple: 19 studs = 15.2 cm As for Galidor - they are too "cyborg". What do you think?
