Here we see the first section of the Rebuilt Cloud Cuckoo Land. It was constructed by Princess Unikitty herself, with help from fellow master builders Benny the 1980-something space guy, Abraham Lincoln, and Joey the Snail. Abraham helped with the plans, which were subsequently thrown out the window (literally) in favor of building out of imagination. Needless to say, Lincoln was pretty upset, and decided to go the Theater to calm down... Anyway, Benny then brought in his friend the Doctor to help with the matter of turning Unikitty's M.C. Escher - style design into something more reasonable. Needless to say, reason lost out to bright colors and swirly disc-things. In summary, Unikitty and Joey built what you see here in about an hour-and-a-half of frantic building, finding cool parts and placing them in odd ways, plus adding force-shields so that the Fall of Cuckoo Land should never happen again. Here we see the ground floor.... wait a minute: Joey the Snail hopped into the frame at the last minute! Oh well, it's too late to change it now! Here we see a birds-eye view of the tower's top floor, the second floor, and the ground. Joey usually sits on the two jumpers on the ground floor, while Unikitty attaches to the jumper on the top floor. Here is a look behind the front wall... there really isn't much to look at! MY NOTES: Okay, so I bought set 70803 (Cloud Cuckoo palace) and modified it a bit. I don't have an LDD file, and couldn't tell you what remains from the original set and what I modified. Also, I wanted to wait until Buster the jalopy was finished, but that won't be for a couple weeks, so I posted it as-is. Oh, and the reason why Unikitty isn't in any photos is because she isn't finished... yet. Also: If you are wondering who buster the Jalopy is, please see this thread: http://www.eurobrick...owtopic=117454\ Comments and questions welcome!
Murdoch17 posted a topic in Special LEGO ThemesFor a while now, Unikitty has been scouting out a new place to create Cloud Cuckoo Land anew. To do this she needs transportation, and so she had her friend Joey the snail help her find a new car, which happened to turn out to be Buster the vintage motor car. He doesn't drive very fast, but no-one minds: it's all about the journey to getting from point "A" to point "B" and having fun along the way. As an added bonus, Buster has been around the block a few times and knows all the best roadside attractions and sights to see along highways, back roads and dirt trails of the LEGO World. Plus, Buster has been modified to run on Unikitty's boundless imagination and cheery attitude so no longer do they have to stop for gasoline. Unfortunately, Buster has a very temperamental engine, so Joey volunteers as the Mechanic for their journeys across the LEGO landscape while they search for a new home. Here we see (from left to right) Buster the vintage motor car, Princess Unikitty, and Joey the Snail. Buster was originally in yellow as a version of Doctor Who's car "Bessie". I then added eyes one afternoon last week as a idea of "what if Bessie was living and could talk". I then decided Bessie would go better with Unikitty because she is a bit more whimsical than the Doctor. I also added the snail from the Cloud Cuckoo Land set as Bessie's (now repainted red and renamed Buster) mechanic. By the way: The name "Joey the snail" came from my Sister's old blog where she had a beanie-baby-like frog named Legs as the star of the blog with a guest star Joey the Snail appearing on the home page occasionally... she quit writing the blog about three years ago, and I appropriated Joey and placed the snail from the LEGO Movie set as him once it was revealed to keep it alive, in a way. Anyway, here is the rear view showcasing the seats for Unikitty (front) and Joey (rear) . You can also see the spare tire from here. Here is the LDD file, if anyone wants it: http://www.mocpages....1447963356m.lxf EDIT: This moc should be built after the doctor who set comes out, around the first week of December.
Teeny Weeny races across the Wither Woods into Avalonia on a mercy mission. He must deliver the bandages to Benoic so that Lord de Gothia can heal the sick. Although the PGTC does not as a rule give things away for free, it is poor business practice to allow customers to perish. The giant Kaliphlin racing snail can travel swiftly and silently across these paths, although today it is carrying a heavy load. This is my entry for the Cotton for Avalonia mini-challenge. The inspiration is from Never-ending story (and we have been watching Turbo a little bit too!)
