  1. Hi everyone. I'm new here, and I really, really wanted to show you my latest MOC... the legendary Scrooge McDuck's Moneybin. The project is also available on Lego Ideas (link at the end of the post), but first let me give you a tour, so you can check with your eyes if it's worth your vote . Be sure to scrool the pictures till the very bottom. I promise you won't regret it. LEGO SCROOGE MCDUCK'S MONEYBIN by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr This is the front, with the iconic huge dollar sign. The armored door is the first element of playability: it can be opened and closed pulling the two bars attacched at the side of each half. Also, it is not very clear from the picture, but the small stairway has two lion heads at the bottom, to give the entrance an imposing and intimidating touch IT'S HUUUUUGE by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr As you can see is quite a tall building (33,3 cm, or if you prefer 34 bricks, from the baseplate to the top of the dome). On the roof we have the famous dome, that here I adapted into an helicopter landing pad. I couldn't not include the cannon to shoot at the evil Beagle Boys and a telescope to read the newspapers for free. MONEYBIN OPEN by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr Ok, now the interior. I wanted this set to be fun for adults to build and extremely fun for kids to play with, so it had to be easy to access every feature. The easiest way was to put the front wall on a separeted baseplate, so all you have to do to 'get in' is to push it away. As for the floors, they can be easily removed thanks to the trail design: they slide in the groove bricks inside the external walls, so it's easy to get into action FIRST FLOOR by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr And now the ground floor. I designed to be the most intimidating possible. Imagine: you are a business man and you have a meeting with the richest and toughest duck in the world. As soon as you enter, you don't have the time to enjoy the nice floor with dollar mosaic because you notice that a security camera is pointing at you. The frame with "TIME IS MONEY" also is not very welcoming, you wait your turn on the green sofa... and then you realize that is placed right in front of a giant anti theft protection cannon. As if it this wasn't enough, you also have a Scrooge McDuck's painting that seems look at you. AND IT IS, because that wall hides a secret passage, with an hole to spy from behind the painting... but what's so important that Scrooge wants to hide? SECRET PASSAGE by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr - Treasures, of course. What else do you expect from the richest and most adventurous duck in the world? Notice also the black lever to turn back the secret passage ;) SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr Here you can enjoy the anti-theft protecion cannon in action... "Say hello to my little friend" SECOND FLOOR by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr And now the first floor, with the private rooms of Scrooge. On the corridor, a picture of him from when he was to work as gold prospector in Klondike, but most of all, the frame that says "There is no such a thing as talent, only inspiration and ambition". But let's see better the others room... BEDROOM 1 by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr Have you ever tried sleeping on a canopy bed made of 100 dollar bills? Trust Scrooge, you will sleep like a baby BEDROOM 2 by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr Sleep well, but get up early: Scrooge knows it well, he even has a frame in front of his bed to remember it. On the bedside table, a nice family picture from great comic writer Don Rosa. SALON 1 by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr And now the salon, or is it better to call it "Worry Room" ? Why do you think that carpet is threadbare that way? Scrooge's nervous walking, of course. What a shame, it was only 60 years old . We also have a library, a pendulum clock and a marble bust with laurel leaves (I can easily Scrooge get inspired by great leaders from the past). SALON 2 by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr COINS BATH 1 by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr Here is Scrooge, literally showering in money, happy as a baby. COINS BATH 2 by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr He even has the shower curtain made of dollars SCROOGE'S OFFICE by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr And finally the second floor, with his big office. This is definitely my favorite floor, I made sure to put EVERY SINGLE DETAIL that I remember from the comics: EVERY SINGLE ONE. There is the giant vault door, the display case with his beloved number 1 dime, the earth globe, the weelbarrow full of coins, the pyramid of coins with Donald polishing them, the money bags, the graphic wih his profits skyrocketing, the gun on the wall, the desk with multiple phones and an old crank calculator... but wait, what's that lever under his desk? FUNCTIONING TRAPDOOR by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr This is my favorite feature. I didn't like the classic way to make the trapdoors work, with the stick to be removed and then manually put back. No, I wanted it to feel real, so I designed the mechanism in a way that opens the trapdoor when you push the lever forward, and automatically closes it when you pull it back. What do you think about? Please let me know THE NUMBER 1 DIME DISPLAY CASE by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr POOR DONALD by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr THE GRAPHIC OF PROFITS by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr Ok... now the moment you were all waiting for...what it would be the MoneyBin without the giant money pool with his 3 cubic acres of cash? Let me explain how it works: sure, you could open the vault hatch, but to access the money pool, we actually have to go to the back. The back wall can be removed (it's easy to pull thanks to four bricks that stick out). With the back wall removed, we can admire the money pool thanks to the 9 big transparent panels . We have the trampoline, the giant meter to measure the level of cash... and not a single coin. why? Maybe the Beagle Boys stole it all? No, it's empty because you are the one going to fill the MoneyBin. The MoneyBin is in fact a giant piggy bank, that you can fill through the apposite coin slot on the back of the roof. Once filled, this is the final result IT'S A PIGGY BANK by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr AND NOW THE IMPORTANT PART... Guys, this project is available on Lego Ideas at the following link --> https://ideas.lego.com/projects/a633c276-5b5b-40fe-badd-217263dc37a8?fbclid=IwAR3W4jDpJswdFFF1hRky_HCFrREsiHsWpDzGBrUer8b2mVUHzAqcDjgqiJY Probably you all know what Lego Ideas is, but in case you don't, here is how it works: 1) users (in this case me) upload their creations 2) other users vote them clicking the yellow button support (you need to have a Lego account, it's free to create one) 3) When a project reaches 10.000 supporters, Lego's experts will take it in exham to evaluate if produce it as an official Lego Set. Very simple. WHY THIS PROJECT NEEDS SUPPORT (BADLY) I love Scrooge McDuck, but I have the bad luck of Donald Duck (which I equally love), because Lego never cared about Scrooge McDuck, they only released a minifigure many years ago...until I decided to create this Moneybin. Then Lego Group decided "Let's do a Scrooge McDuck set", and they released set 40477, the Brickheadz of Scrooge, Huey, Dewey and Louie. That they are completely different from my moneybin, but that's enough for Lego to say "We don't accept anymore Ideas with this theme". So, when I uploaded my project for the first time (it was actually themed DuckTales, not even Scrooge McDuck), they rejected it because of violation of third party IP. So, I had a choice: see two months of hard, passionate work going to the trash can, or rework it, removing all possible references to Scrooge McDuck. I went for the second, and I transformed into his arch-rival Glomgold's Moneybin. That's why on Lego Ideas you see it with the G on the front wall (as a joke, I made sure that the parts making the G are the same of the dollar: change the order and you will get the dollar sign ). Needless to say, Glomgold is waaaaay less famous of Scrooge McDuck, and the fact that I can't use name, image or minifigure of Scrooge McDuck gives me waaaay less visibility and appeal. That's why I courtesly ask you to support this project if you liked what you saw. I really believe in this project and I think deserves a chance. Afterall, they already have the licence, they should just go with the original version i proposed first. Once again, this one is the link --> https://ideas.lego.com/projects/a633c276-5b5b-40fe-badd-217263dc37a8?fbclid=IwAR3W4jDpJswdFFF1hRky_HCFrREsiHsWpDzGBrUer8b2mVUHzAqcDjgqiJY In the following days I will try to upload a video, more photos and also my CUSTOMIZED EXTENDED VERSION, with one more floor to discover, and the iconic hill on which the Moneybin sits. Thanks to all the ones who will help this project become real

  3. Steve Gaels, adventurer during his free time and working in a Parisian museum, found a very old map on a market in London. When he found out that that map could help him discover the lost treasure of an ancient and extinct tribe, he took the first plane to North America. Hapapou is a Native American who crossed Steve's path after he lost a poker game - and almost his life - just before Steve saved him from outlaws. In exchange, Hapapou promised to help Steve to find the famous treasure. See more pictures in the album here : Steve Gaels and Hapapou's Adventures! Thanks for any suggestions or comments!

    [MOC] Mutiny of the Map

    Hi all. I'd just to like share my first Pirates MOC - "Mutiny of the Map". This was inspired by Nivremis' MOC of the island shown on a Lego pirates treasure map. That made me think about other possible scenarios around the treasure map... and this is what I came up with. A reason for mutiny! Mutiny of the Map 1 by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr Closer shot of the "action". Mutiny of the Map 2 by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr And the standard straight on shot. Mutiny of the Map 3 by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr Thanks for looking.

    [MOC] Steampunk Treasure Explorers

    A few days ago, I've built this small Steampunk MOC. It shows three explorers who search the Steampunk world for treasures and other special and exclusive items. Besides the treasure chest, you can see many parts of (flying) Steampunk machines. Picture: 01_Treasure_Explorers by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr I hope you like it

    The Observer-Tree

    Hello fellow humans! Here is a build that i completed very early this year, after dedicating many, many hours to it over last year. When I was a kid, I always wanted to build a large tree house out of LEGO but never had the parts or the disposable income.. Now, I have both of those things, I thought it was time to get it on the drawing boards. I would have posted it heaps sooner, but these pics were taken for Bricks CULTURE magazine #6 and wanted to do the right thing by them and hold off until the next edition was out. As I'm still getting used to uploading images and yet to tweek the RAW ones to a usable file size, this is all i have for you to check out here.. Though if you'd like to check out some of the finer details and the rear side, please jump over to my Flickr account here and have a squiz! There is quite the philosophical story behind it all, but I'll leave that for the pages of BC. Thanks to Cristian Brunelli for the great photographic shots, as my camera, if you could call it that, wouldn't stand up to the task in the state of my studio. Oh yeah, just by the by, the chairlift, waterwheel and waterfalls all move thanks to the Power of a single XL PF Motor and a string of gearboxes.. And I'd be more than happy to prove it to you, if someone has some footage.. I was lucky enough to get these shots! haha! Anywho, Enjoy.
  7. Do you like stories about secret rooms, hidden maps, the secret signs and ancient treasures? I will tell you one such story. Once upon a time lived a famous architect. He even built palaces for kings. He was fabulously rich and famous. He was very fond of gold and jewels. And all the money he spent on them. But when he died, left a very strange Testament. The old architect wrote in his testament that he hid all his gold and jewels. The map and the key to the treasure he left for storage to the Admiral Carl Jonson who was a close friend of the architect. It seems that everything is simple. But the admiral died 10 years earlier than the architect. Therefore, it is impossible to ask the Admiral, where the treasures are hidden. People says that the treasure has not yet been found. Maybe you can find them? Good luck! So I made a little comic about a treasure hunt. This story happened on this pedestrian street. If you want to see all images of this set, please click here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/158145 If you liked the story and the set, please SUPPORT this project on ideas.lego.com!

    Pirate Black Fort

    Hi, LEGO pirates fans. I uploaded my last creation long ago. This is my next creation – black pirate fortress decorated with a skull at the entrance, with huge rubies instead of eyes. Perhaps they are their trophy from Islanders’ temple. To build it I combined 7396,3053,6241, and a castle of 1995 with the first ghost (6090). It seems, there are no stairs in any pirate sets in 2015. LEGO designers were more attentive to such details before. I know it because I've been collecting LEGO sets for more than 25 years now. Every time I create something, I wonder how other LEGO fans like it. If you like my creations you can support some of them in LEGO ideas. C & C are welcome. Sorry for the quality.

    [MOC] Watermill Assault

    Good morrow to you, Eurobricks! The present day I giveth thee a 378-piece model formulated off of a watermill from medieval times! It includeth three minifigures- two evil knights and a miller who eke worketh as a blacksmith. The setteth itself includeth an assortment of interactivity and functions! This is the exterior of the watermill. As thee can see, tis very fusty and worn, with much of its structure appearing through the outer stonework, and foliage of various sorts adorning the walls. The back of the model. Hither thee can see the outer defense which comprises of a minuscule catapult, and the second floor's blacksmith shop. Thee can eke see the mill wheel and a very-poorly guarded hatch of sorts. I ponder what 'tis hiding? Aye! The panel swings upward to reveal a rare and most precious chest holding the mill's treasure. Thither beest a spider looking to maketh its home within the dank cellar! Hither we eke see the gear system that is hath used to rotate the mill wheel. The activator resides at the apex of the tower aside o' the catapult. I asketh thee to giveth me any thoughts, comments, criticisms, and appraisal that thee wish to giveth! I wilt fain lend mine ear to it.

    Attacking Kahuka's Village

    Hi, LEGo pirates fans. It took me much time to create it. And you can judge if it’s worth it. The size of the village is 48 by 48 studs, but I put the base plates so that you could see the mini figs better. The pirates came to pillage the islanders’ village. It’s so rich that you can see gold, silver and gems anywhere. And the pirates are carrying all that not only in ebony chests but also in baskets, bags etc. Lots of the islanders are weaponless but not defenseless because the sea dragon and the gold and bronze idols, the patrons of the village, won’t let the treasure away so easily. And the majority of the robbers and cutthroats are already being cooked on the rack (which is in the background not to over shock LEGO fans). Another classic horror things are 2 Iron Maidens (a skeleton is falling out of one of them) and The dragon is chewing a greedy pirate who didn’t drop his treasure bag even when the dragon caught him. Achu is sitting on the dragon’s back. Many of the mini figures became grey-haired instantly seeing all that horror. For example the pirate caught by a silver idol who became alive after the pirate tried to steal a huge sapphire from its crown. Some unlucky guys are pierced with the pale. Kahuka wearing his big bloody mask is watching the death feast from his high green throne. Can you see small flames under the rack? I'll try to add a couple of pictures from other angles later. Any C&C is welcome. Please support my 2 LEGO ideas projects if that's interesing for you. Pillage the Village is going on! You can see an idol in front of the first vigvam. It became alive and caught a pirot - no escape! There are some poisonous red snakes in the bushes. Greedy and unlucky pirates don't see them.
  12. While we wait to see what Nexo Knights has in store for us, I thought I would share another MOC I just made. One of Robin Hood's Merry Men enters the village ready to give out stolen treasure . . . since his cart looks to be carrying refreshment, he is able to smuggle the treasure in without being stopped by the Sheriff of Nottingham's men! This MOC includes a horse-drawn cart featuring a barrel full of treasure, and two minifigures: One of Robin Hood's Merry Men to steer the cart, and a village blacksmith ready to gather up the treasure (as shown in the last image). This is also a project on Lego Ideas, if you feel inclined to support or share it: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/113997 You can also see these and additional pictures in better quality through Flickr: https://www.flickr.c...157655165310134 Feel free to add any suggestions or questions in the comments if I missed anything.
  13. This one was a relatively quick and small build, but I'm still very proud of it. Soon enough, I'll graduate to bigger MOCs, but for now I've got this! EDIT: General updates, + textured roof + proper placing of pieces
  14. Hello everyone. This is my first project/submission for the LEGO ideas site. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/92483 I am also doing the troso prints but they will be done in a week so I did not want to wait and added the prject already however I will update the pictures later. You can see the troso designs (very simple - clasic style) on one fo the pictures. Let me know your feedback.

    [MOC] Digging up Treasure

    Battle for the Treasure

    [pid][/pid] 253C Built for the Jolly Roger Contest on Forbidden Cove. I've been wanting to build a coast scene with cliffs for a while now, the JRC gave me the incentive I needed to finally do it. The pirates had just dug up a large cache of treasure when a Redcoat ship spotted them from the sea. The ship quickly dispatched two rowboats full of soldiers to attack the pirates. Will the pirates be able to successfully defend their new-found treasure? Or will the soldiers capture the treasure for His Majesty? Check out more pictures here: link C&C appreciated

    [MOC] Burying the treasure

    [pid][/pid] 250C I've made a small vignette - pirates burying their "hard earned" treasure. I hope for more "leafy" tree next time, but I've used all of my leafs for that one ;)
