Emmet and Lucy's dream home (slightly based on TLM 2 set - finished 9/14/22)
Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO TownFollowing the events of The LEGO Movie 2, and using the proceeds of his and Lucy's film careers, Emmet got to work on building Lucy and himself their dreamhouse again. They 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. Unikitty lives in the house too, and has made the unused attic space her personal play-place. The MOC's color scheme was heavily inspired by set 70831 - Emmet's Dream House/Rescue Rocket. The building itself (not the furniture) was originally inspired by this Rebrickable MOC by user MIJbricks. The rear of the house features a chimney flue. The model also opens up like a dollhouse up to 90 degrees, and locks shut on a technic pin. On the front half's lower level is the living room, with record player, writing desk and couch. Upstairs is the bed, lamp, and a huge cabinet. The attic is Unikitty's play-place. (She seems really happy to see you!) In the rear half (lower level) is the kitchen table and fireplace. Upstairs is a vanity and Planty. Pictures of Emmet and Lucy are on the wall as well. Alas, it seems the house already has a Duplo infestation... In addition to the manor house, I'm also got a black version of set 40448 - Vintage Car (from Ideas) for Emmet and Lucy to drive around in. I absolutely HATED those loose-fitting surfboards on the sides, so I've created a easy workaround. Some other things have been changed in certain places, such as those eight 1x1 double curved slopes have been replaced with the new 1x4 version for added strength. I originally wanted to do the car in red, but the wheel arches are sadly stupid expensive in regular red. Blue was also an option, until I learned one of the 1x1 brackets needed are not available in that color yet. Thus, black was my only remaining choice. Thoughts? EDIT 9/14/22: real life pictures added, and text updated.
Emmet's dream townhouse with retro 1950's car - real life MOC
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!
