  1. I wanted to share with you my Christmas village for 2017. This year my main additions are a ski lodge and resort area, the new official Winter Station (expanded), and a new city block made of Creator 3-in-1 sets. Here is a video tour of the village: Below are some of my favorite pics of the new stuff. Trying not to overload you with too many (but probably still did), but all the photos can be found in my Flickr album: https://www.flickr.com/photos/42918210@N02/albums/72157690735608385/with/38211832374/ I guess I'll start with the ski lodge. It and the ski lift were a big challenge for me this year. I'm not a master builder by any means, but it was a lot of fun putting it together. The lodge is pretty crammed full on the inside with a sitting area, cafe area, and ski rental spot. Here is the front of the lodge with some skis being delivered, car by @de-marco: Inside the lodge: Little coffee shop inside: Ski rentals and lockers: Hitting the slopes: I purchased some of the Friends ski related sticker sheets to help around the resort, like here at the ski lift operator shack: These are the Friends Ski Chalet sets that have been recolored. Thanks to @Cheatay for the LDDs to get these started: Taking a ride on the ski lift. Unfortunately, no the ski lift is not operational. That would be ideal and may be one day in the future but I will have to get a lot better at the technic side of MOCs. The chair design was inspired by @twigman Sitting atop the ski slopes of course is the North Pole: Now heading into town we have the Winter Station that I expanded: Coming home for Christmas: Christmas tree farm: Carolers: Creator 3-in-1 sets in the holiday spirit. Cars by @de-marco I actually have another train station on the "city" side of town: Here is a grand shot of the whole village: That's just a few of my favorite pics. Be sure to check out the video to get a tour of the whole town. You can also see many more photos in my Flickr album: https://www.flickr.com/photos/42918210@N02/albums/72157690735608385/with/38211832374/ Eurobricks provides so much inspiration for my village, I wanted to thank you all. I want to credit as many as I can for the inspiration. The expanded train cars was done last year by @mouseketeer. The sidewalk pattern was from @alex54. @Alebricks has just an awesome diorama that has inspired me as well. Thanks for looking!
  2. Winter Village 2017

    This is my first Moc after coming out of the Dark Age. I have always loved winter and Christmas and I am very happy to have spent two years building this village; unfortunately the time available is always little and I can put some bricks only a couple of times a month. The photos are a bit old and a new version of this village is already under construction _DSC2659 by Alessio Stebel, su Flickr _DSC2611 by Alessio Stebel, su Flickr Link to the complete gallery: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmbqiRwn
  3. Thought I would share. Just checked on the family winter village display and it looks like Godzilla went thru it. So bad, not sure its possible to put it back the way it was. I'm accustomed to the the kids moving stuff around multiple times a day and such. This time my mocs have been heavily modified (rebuilt/destroyed). At first I was a bit upset, then I remembered how lucky I am to to have them in my life and their interest in bricks. Would be kinda boring if our display wasn't modified now and then. When the kids get a bit older hoping their "help" is a bit more productive. Anyways, for those of you lucky enough to have little helpers/engineers, suggest you remember to count your blessing and not worry about the several missing mini figure heads (found in the toy box) or why your toy shop had to be rebuilt into a pet store. These days are numbered, don't waste them.
  4. Is there a more up to date poll for your favorite/least favorite winter village sets including this years station. Looking at the forum looks like even more interest in the series than back in 2013. Thinking we can beat polling numbers (50 ish) from the original poll. Expect the Toy Shop and Cottage will still be the favorites. Wonder if the train and station will displace the market as the bottom of the barrel. IMO the post office has that position locked up!
  5. My Winter Village Diorama 2017

    Hi there, for some years I've watched this forum from outside, and I always liked the Winter Village Themes and MOCs! For the severals last years I collected the Winter Sets and now every year the kids and me are buildung our Winter Village in the time before christmas. This year we combined all the sets the first time to a whole diorama for our one-day christmas market in our church, added some little things, "winterized" two mountain huts, and so on. I got a lot of inspiration from other members in this forum (don't be mad if I copied your ideas!) - and now I hope you enjoy our team work, the kids mostly build the houses.

  6. In a posting mood today. Was looking over the winter village series and the Post office comes up dead last on my favorites list. Mind you I own the train and the station sets (also own the market and toy shop too). Sure there are other treads on ranking your favorite sets of the series. Am I alone in rating the Post office so low? For me comes down to hating the truck and so so on the gazebo. Building is ok, but nothing to write home about. Am I being to hard on this set? Wish I liked it better, but just don't. Maybe my rankings will shed some light on things (1: Toy Shop, 2: Cottage, 3: Market, 4: Bakery,5: Santa, 6: Train, 7: Station, 8: Post). Am I alone in my opinion?
  7. Was just thinking about what I would like to see Lego provide next year for the winter village series. Thought I would share some ideas. My hope is someone takes this and expands, tread gets a lot of good comments and get sent to Lego for inspiration. While the last two sets (train and station) have been good, IMO not quite as good as years past. Hard part of figuring out what should come next is the set has to expand our existing villages and still look good as a stand alone set. That said, think one of the following would be good. If you agree with any of these let me know. If you can think of something better, please add it below. 1) Small Inn/Cafe, 2 stories. First floor would be the cafe, a small kitchen and check in desk. 2nd floor would be two guest rooms with a bathroom in between. Do not need any other vehicles or decorations, Prefer the bricks in the building itself and detailing the interior. Mini figs would be: Desk clerk, Chef, one young couple (man and women), one family (dad, mom, few kids). 2) Frozen Skating Pond. Have a large (one base plate) pond. Pond should be elevated at least one brick. There should be a small skate rental shop with benches to put skates on. Also need a hot coco stand and a few trees around pond. If elevated enough kids sledding down a hill would be fun. Mini figs: Skate shop owner, coco stand attendant, 2 adult skaters, 2 kids and a dog. 3) Cottage/farm. This one one story and less modern home. Have a old kitchen, bed and a table. Outdoors have an outhouse and a simple stable. Need a horse and buggy. Some fencing would be nice. Mini Figs: Old man and women, grand kid, horse, cow, few chickens 4) General goods store. Old building full of all kinds of stuff. Have some good for sale outside. Has a old delivery truck (enclosed bed). Street light and bench. Mini figs: Store owner, truck driver, shop worker, shoppers (man, 2 women and 2 kids). These are not in any particular order as I would love for Lego to make them all. If I had to chose only one it would be the Inn, only because would look great as a center piece with the toy shop large Christmas tree. The cottage would be second and the general goods store third. Only reason the pond was not higher in the list is feel the easiest to moc ourselves. Fairly confident Lego could do it better then me thou....lol. Let me know what you think.
  8. MOC: Coca Cola Christmas Truck

    So I decided to create a Coca Cola Christmas Truck for my Winter Village, and this is the result. Took the Lego Truck as a basis and modified that design to fit my own goal. I think it turned out well :).
  9. I've been doing a lot of custom Winter Village MOCs over the past year, and this is my ninth! I wanted to try something a bit different, so I took my inspiration from a Christmas classic - How The Grinch Stole Christmas. The model includes the Grinch's DIY sleigh with overstuffed sack of presents (with credit to Peter Aoun for the method of attaching the 'antler'!), a Whoville House (with wiggly wavy architecture and crazy colourscheme that gave me a lot of headaches trying to get it to look right, haha - square bricks can certainly make the shapes needed tricky!), and a late addition that I have to thank the Eurobricks Xmas Raffle for (that thread gave me the idea to add this extra!) - a crooked 'Grinchmas Tree'. More photos (and photos of all my Winter Village sets) can be found on my Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/146006635@N03/albums LEGO Winter Village Whoville & The Grinch by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr LEGO Winter Village Whoville & The Grinch by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr
  10. Hey Guys, While I never participate I love the expand the Winter Village thread every year (I think it's normally a contest). Will this be happening this year or the Christmas Tree is what is going on this year? Just asking. I always love seeing what people are doing to their villages! Thanks!
  11. Is it just me, or, now that I'm getting ready to set up my Winter Village stuff, does the Friends Snow Resort line look like they're only a few alterations (and a bit of stripping out the pink) away from fitting in nicely alongside the Winter Village sets? This is more pertinent to the Chalet and Ice Rink sets than the Ski Lift and Off-Roader. What does everyone think? EDIT: And the Hot Chocolate Van! I completely forgot the Van . . which is more of a take it or leave it set for Winter Village applications, depending on what time period you picture your Village in (and how much you like hit chocolate).
  12. Winter Village Cottage vs Bakery

    Hi All! The holidays are nearing (I start Christmas season in Early November) and can't wait to start adding and putting out my Winter Village since I got on the band wagon late I am missing a few of the older sets. I have bought some instructions and Brinklinked a few thing (or will be this year anyway), including a church and adding to my train with a couple of new holiday wagons. Any way I am trying to slowly get some of the older sets and am debating between the cottage and bakery. What is your favorite and why? I am personally leaning towards the cottage as I like the way it looks better. Any one else have any thoughts?
  13. Winter Village diorama 2017

    Hi all, this year I expanded my collection of winter village sets buying the winter train station and the winter train, so I realized that I had to make a new diorama to integrate them in my diorama. This is the old one: Now, after a lot of work, I'm happy to present you the new one! I used a lot of pieces building three independent modules to make the structure more resistant and easily transportable. Hope you like it!
  14. I may be posting in the wrong place and if I am I apologize. I'm a grandma with a Winter Village that lured me into Lego. I had it at work as a kids therapist for 2 years but it outgrew my office and has a spot at home now. Lots of children play with it from Thanksgiving to New Years. They run the trains, and build their families out of minifigs so it is more strong than elegant. Three years ago I saw some pretty cool ski lifts online and I want one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnJ2M1iKt40 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIZ5WkQp-Uo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSwdposR3Sk and went a little nuts on bricklink buying what I thought I might need. Last year I copied the seats from twigman's non operational warming hut. https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/49952-winter-village-ski-lift-and-warming-hut/ Then I stayed intimidated and did nothing until last week. I copied the Friends ski lift which is pretty worthless for what I want and then I built an ugly fortress. Then I went online and learned as much as I could about how real ski lifts work. I bought Sariel's book and built a better tower that doesn't pop off the hill as easily. I finally uploaded my first pix ever to flickr hoping someone here can help me. https://www.flickr.com/photos/143898716@N08/ I tried twine, drapery cord, and yarn to drive my bullwheels but all are too slippery and if I tighten them I collapse my towers. Also my motor needs to be geared down but I'm not understanding enough. I let kids crash trains but I want this to work well before they get their hands on the remote. There is a local LUG but I have to Take care of my Dad on the weekend it meets. I would appreciate any advice. Thanks, Karen
  15. [MOC] Winter Village Firehouse

    I'm doing a Winter Village display at a show in November, so my Christmassy building is stretching unusually early this year! This is my latest model - a Winter Village Firehouse! The building comes with an old fashioned style fire engine, and a hot chestnut wagon (with glowing light brick, and alternate "on fire" version to give the fire fighters an emergency to attend to!). The building comprises a garage for the fire engine (with an emergency telephone, hat stand, and Christmas tree), a kitchen area and sleeping area in the bell tower, and (of course!) a fire pole to slide down. The festive wreath on the front of the building also surrounds a hidden button that lights up the bell from inside the tower. The full album is at https://flic.kr/s/aHsm8MMRTB Winter Village Firehouse by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr Winter Village Firehouse by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr Winter Village Firehouse by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr
  16. Hi everybody, I'm new here (link to my presentation), and to introduce myself to all of you I'd like to share some of my creations. Some of you may already have seen the mods I showed early today in the SW forum, but now I'd like to show something completely original, and probably my favourite digital moc so far. I am a lover of the Winter Village Creator Expert series and I decided to create something myself to expand my town. I thought that in the winter village line were missing a market to feed the poor cold minifigures, so I started LDD and I created a small grocer! The name clearly isn't casual. I decided to make a tribute to the famous modular building, the green grocer, and working with this idea in mind I realized some details in a similar way to the original building! I leave to you the game to find all the similarities! I haven't actually built a real model since some parts are not existing in the colors I choosed, but I guess in the future I will find a solution to replace them. Those are some renders I made: Winter Green Grocer by SpaceBrick, on Flickr winter grocery stairs by SpaceBrick, on Flickr winter grocery well view by SpaceBrick, on Flickr My goal was to create something similar to the existing winter sets, so the Grocer isn't so big in terms of pieces (around one thousand) and is completely open on the rear, just like the Toy Shop or the Santa's Workshop: Inside Winter Green Grocer by SpaceBrick, su Flickr inside winter grocery 2 by SpaceBrick, su Flickr inside winter grocery upper floor by SpaceBrick, su Flickr The ground floor is the actual shop, the first floor is a sort of a warehouse and a office for the grocer's owner. The roof is quite simple by choice, in this way is more similar to the other winter buildings. Outside there are a couple of more details. There's a well, a snow covered tree and a lamp, that always come with Lego winter sets! I also created some minifig to complete the scene, in particular there are the shop owner, a customer and a mailman, useful to deliver new daily supplies. winter grocery well 2 by SpaceBrick, su Flickr Winter Green Grocer accessories by SpaceBrick, su Flickr I submitted this project also to Lego IDEAS, and it has been selected in those days to appear in the Staff Picks in the Ideas homepage.I honestly do not think that the project will go much further, because unfortunately winter village is not a click-catcher theme, but if you like my project I leave here a link to the related page: WINTER GREEN GROCER If you wanna take a look, in the page there are also a few updates where I tried to combine more than one shop, just like that: LEGO Summer Green Grocer - double, tiled roof by SpaceBrick, su Flickr And this is it, I hope you enjoyed my modest moc! Thank you for watching, if you like my creation please leave a comment!
  17. [MOC] Winter Village Woodcarver

    This November, I've signed up to display a Winter Village display at a Lego show so even though we're still months away from Christmas, I've been working away at doing more Winter Village MOCs! This is my latest one - a Winter Village Woodcarver. Designed as an ornate chalet in the forest, the model depicts the workplace of a toy-maker, with the workstation on the inside (complete with woodworking tools, paint pots, and an almost finished toy soldier), and a cuckoo clock inspired rotating platform of wooden toys on the exterior (operated using a handle on the back of the building). Alongside it is a Christmas-colored gypsy wagon (complete with a stove and cosy bed for the toy-maker to sleep in), and three ice sculptures, which light up! I've been thinking of a doing a turntable Christmas building since I saw a non-Lego Christmas Village model that did something similar. This is my fifth(!) Winter Village MOC. The rest (a pub, a chocolate factory, a church, and custom train cars for the official Winter Train) can be seen in my Flickr album. https://www.flickr.com/photos/146006635@N03/albums Winter Village Woodcarver by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr Winter Village Woodcarver by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr Winter Village Woodcarver by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr Winter Village Woodcarver by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr
  18. I tried to recreate the bus from 10259 and then thought it would be neat to also have a different livery, somewhat more like the English busses. And here is the render of the 'original' version. And here they are together. The drivers seem to have a casual chat about the weather road conditions or some other driver related thing :). Kudos to msx80 for his render tool! Works perfect on macOS Sierra, I used it to render the images. In here I have made some comments on what parts are different from 10259. I needed to guess for some parts, but I came quite close I think.

  20. Hi all, I am sure I was registered years ago, but have re-registered anyhow. Have followed the site for a really long time. Cannot wait for the 2017 WV release. How soon do WV people start setting up? I might have to build a church if the release isn't good enough.
  21. [MOC] Winter Village Pub

    I realise we're practically six months away, but I need to get these ready in time! :) This is my take on a British canal-side pub at Christmas, with a narrow boat, lock, and pub building with cosy fireplace downstairs, and a four poster bed upstairs! More images are available on my Flickr at https://flic.kr/s/aHskZazD14
  22. Lego holiday train PF problem

  24. Winter Village: Train depot

    Hello everyone, Here is my entry into the Winter Village competition. Because of the new Winter Village train, we need a station so there is somewhere for the train to stop! I used this train station in my own Winter Village display this year, so I took extra care to make sure the scale of the building matched the other buildings from Lego's official Winter Village sets. This was not as easy as it sounds. There is a tendency for me (and many others, I think) to make our MOCs large and grande. It is difficult to be restrained in the size of our builds. IMG_0511-001 by James Altland, on Flickr For some reason, the system will not allow more photos to be posted. So I will post this one for now, and perhaps more later. Thank you for looking! Okay, I'm new to posting photos on this site. So I'm trying to add a few more photos, even though they may be too late for consideration in the Winter Village competition.

  25. Winter Village Department Store

    This is my entry for the Winter Village Contest. The department store has four departments, Food, Home, Clothes and Toys. While it is at the larger end of Winter Village models, I have tried to make its design consistent with the official sets in the series using similar colours and elements such as the black lampposts. The food department has fresh fruit and vegetables, bakery, cans and cereals meat including Christmas turkey and fridges full of cartons. The home department has dishes pots and pans, mugs, a coffee machine, crystal glasses, Christmas decorations, flowers and luggage. The clothing department is mostly made up of mannequins and some other folder clothing The final department is toys, consisting of a teddy bear, space ship, a train set and other toys as well as Santa and his presents. Thank you for looking, and sorry about the bad pictures!
