Default This Old House of Bricks

This thread is for Lego creations.

I figured that I would like a home for my lego posts.

I intend to share photos and videos of our various builds in Bricksburg. I will also have posts that cover doing upgrades to my previous builds, because a MOC (my own creation) is never all the way finished :)

When I build I often set scenes and have characters, Legos are almost perfect for making comic book scenes or other fantastic tales come to life.

(I also intend to start uploading at medium size so the pages won’t be insane to load.)

Today Harley and Ivy are concerned about the recent and ongoing construction at nearby Lord Vader's Volcano.



The Volcano is undergoing more renovation. Vader needs a place to house his new Lava creature troops and of course more guns.



The backside of the Volcano.




Renovations are of course ongoing.

Hogwarts Castle Lego 71043. ES put it together. The brown table is the ocean. The pink is the beach.

Hogwarts is microscale like Tower Bridge and lots of architecture sets. It’s over 6k pieces.

Destiny’s bounty and the Shield Helicarrier are approaching

Billy Strings on stage atop Pepe's Pizza. They are playing up a storm.



Wide shot of Bricksburg.



Ivy's Isle has apparently moved for a better view of the concert. Harley and Ivy are enjoying the show.



Here comes the train.



OH shit, I think that's spiderman :tmgrin:

That’s Billy Strings Band. From left to right: Jarrod Walker on mandolin, Royal Massat on stand up bass, Billy Strings lead vocalist/guitar and Billy Failing on banjo.



I started recording about ten minutes in. I didn’t have patience for a 13 minute video.

Palace Cinema





Venerable yet newly arrived Palace Cinema is hosting a movie premier.




The star has come out to the show. The paparazzo is ready to invade someone's space. But there appears to be a commotion.




"IT IS I..... CLAYFACE WITH MY OSCAAAR! Surely, you will let me in."


Attendant "Yeah, I am not letting a "super" villain with a clearly stolen oscar in. Beat it, before I call the Avengers"




(Initial story idea by ES and Bey, Palace cinema by ES and Lego)

Palace Cinema of Bricksburg is Lego 10232; it is a retired Lego set 2142 pieces. We only got it recently. I found it being sold locally here in San Jose on ebay, so I contacted the seller so we could do safe socially distanced local pickup. We got it and the Emporium which I will post pics of at some point. ES verified that the pieces were there(more or less) and put together both sets.

It is a modular kit so it is designed to go into the town and it is a corner lot, like the Emporium and the Corner Garage, unlike the corner garage, much of the corner is used for a driveway

The theater is clearly based of Grauman's Chinese theater in LA. The walk of fame is on the side walk with little bricks in the stars. The Chinese architectural influence pops as well.



The sign and marquee are just so fucking cute. The sign is brick built using technic pieces to make the P and the two As. I love the use of yellow round plates to be the yellow lights on the marquee. Also that roof is just popping made with a plethora of 1x1 round bricks in some reds and then tilted down at the floor. ES showed me some of the cooler architecture techniques that she used and that roof and facade are really fly.




Backside of theater. The pink caddy convertible from the Diner Set is parked nearby, and you can see the neighboring Gingerbread house.

The roof comes off to reveal:



A theater, it seats 6 and there is a projectionist in the back. The stairs on the side do go up to the roof, there is roof access.



When you remove that floor you reveal the ground floor where there are tickets and concessions. Check out those move posters. Also since the building is removed you can see Goofy and Chip or Dale at the Disney Train Station.




Ticket booth from outside at minfig level. It's got little stations so you can pass money and tickets through.



Outside shot of the movie posters/sidewalk and pink convertible.

Law Re: This Old House of Bricks

:news:

The city formerly known as Bricksburg has been officially renamed to ...

:party: Mesa Ladrillos :party:

"Bricksburg" is played out, being the name of the city in the first Lego movie, and our unofficial nickname of the city we actually live in, inspired by its oh so uninspiring skyline.



Plus this is California. Placenames should be en español.

One of the challenging things is to build good looking accessories with just a few bricks. I am really happy with these tvs. I found these white window pieces that had lightblue translucent pieces on bricklink. I figured they could be made into a tv. I made one with a printed tile that worked really well, so I decided to make some with little pictures.

JD let me cut a picture out of a star trek magazine that she has.

The pictures are just held in with bricks that don't snape, basically a 3 by 4 of tiles held with a brick, and the paper is pressed up against the window.

The final product will have speakers and should look pretty good, but the screens are already great.



A little galaxy quest anyone?



Or how about that time Spock was on the Carol Burnett show?

A while back we bought Dr Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown Lego 76108.

It was sort of like two half modular builds I’m a dollhouse that folded open.

JD took each half and is making modular buildings for the town: Pepe’s Pizza Building and the Sanctum Sanctorum.

At some point, I will do detail post for the buildings.

On top of the Pepe's building is the new bandstand/gazebo thing I made for the bluegrass band. They share a single microphone, as is traditional, and I put speakers on the top.

It's going to be for one of the Trek fans watching it on TV (like the equivalent of one of those giant Lego Star Destroyers.)

It's delightful. Plus I get the credit since I commissioned it.

Vader’s Volcano is under reconstruction.



A bag of brickes and a bunch of remnants scattered about, that looks like the messy work space of Beyelzu :tmgrin: I wasn't satisfied how Vader's Volcano was initially and it suffered an unfortunate breakage during play, and we had gotten some new long bricks and plates from Bricklink, so reconstruction time! I found that having the whole structure over the table split was causing strain in my build, so I split off the main gun and let it sit with Vader's Castle. I added a bunch of bricks to the back of the Volcano to create more support, the previous build had little in back structure so it was prone to collapse.




Vader's Castle now with Blaster Artillery looks pretty good. I had used a tan burp(big ugly rock piece) for the base just like the tan burps that the castle sits upon. The translucent orange elements in the castle also really help.



I used some weird old custom large bricks for the base floor along with the appropriate castle tower pieces. I then used the previously Vader's Volcano lab and a bunch more gray bricks, plates and panels to finish the base floor.



This is further along in construction. You can see that I have reused the red translucent pieces and cannons from the earlier build. I also started the 2nd floor which means the Lava Minion lab finally has a home.



This is where I am at at the time of this post.



That's one of Vader's long time commandos of the 501st legion watching Star Trek. He's a big Star Trek fan.



Check out his Lego Enterprise, it is quite the build. Luckily for the commando, Vader loves his troops even if he is murderous to officers that aren't his commandos. Also decades of service carries with it certain rewards. One also wonders if Vader even gives a shit about Trek vs Wars when he has a Sith/Jedi thing to worry about. and possible robots that hate him from his many, many murders of robots back during the Clone Wars.


I will include pics of the bottom floor and the back when I finish construction.

Enterprise and Vader's castle were both made by ES. I really like how it looks looks right now. I am thinking about having like a Galaxy's Edge thing going.

I just finished the remodel on Vader's Volcano. I am up late. :nightmare:


The :virus::virus::virus: has fucked my sleep schedule. Plus it has been :happysun: :happysun::happysun::happysun: so it's nice to build late at night.



Here you can see what I started with before I began my current reconstruction project. Simple one floor, not that large. I didn't take alot of pictures of it. I rebuilt it better than it was before. :tmgrin:

Larger anyway.



Now it has a couple of floors and a removable roof and is a several studs wider. I really like the way it turned out. The lights work pretty great but the handles come off like every few lights.

Those back supports are small but they are solid bricks and the who thing is stable.




Completed for now Vader's Castle and Volcano Complex

I also have a bunch of lava rock greebling around the area.




You can see the table divide. This is why I split the gun off. the tables are slightly different heights and it was creating strain on my build.

You can see the lava greebling. Uptop there is a phoenix orange bird guy. and a lava minion of Vader's to the side.

I used a bunch of translucent orange and reds in this along with grays and blacks for many structural pieces. along the bottom I also used reds and yellows to be fire colors for my lava rocks. There are also some browns from the BURPs.



Back side of Vader's Volcano. You can see the Dr Strange Sanctum Sanctorum across the tracks, it is of ES's creation as is so much of the town.

I left it open so I can always get to the light bricks in order to be able to replace them. There is a small skull, on either side of the skull there are two handles. The whole thing is technic and bricks to make a lever that you can lift to get to the lights or press down to turn them on. I also love those dark red translucent pieces. They are like for a space ship hull from some old set.

There is also a lava rock minion of Vader's. That minifigure is from a theme called Power Miners. Love those little guys.



This is what the lights look like from the back side. and you can see where I press to make the lights work. You can see the end of one of the technic pieces to the left. I am really happy with how this turned out overall.



A sort of Minifig eye view of the back of Vader's Volcano.




Look at all that pretty orange on that sexy ass roof :tmgrin:

To the extreme right you can see the canon that is at the castle now. It uses the same red translucent pieces that I use on the lights at the bottom.




A different angle so you can see more of the construction. The roof is basically 4 mostly gray corridors between Black windshield pieces that I connected together and then covered in pretty orange and red. The whole thing is exactly the size of inside the walls it sits on with the lips of the jutting windshields sticking one stud out and resting on tiles. Because it is a big exact fit, I use inverted slope buttress pieces to help guide. It goes on really easily, surprisingly.




The roof sitting on the ground. You can see the windshields upon which the roof rests




The lava minion lab with our Star Trek loving Stormtrooper. You can see that I just tiled a large gray rectangle. the roof fits the inside rectange exactly with the windshields 1 stud out to rest on those tiles.



Still loving that Trek.

I'm going to continue in two since I had to make two for the pictures.

I chose not to make an opening between floors because I need room, the floor below does have a ladder, but the opening must be in my imagination. I am okay with that. :tmgrin:

The minion lab removes to reveal the 1st floor.



Two rooms, on the left is the Lava Minion break room with television. This is the first tv that I made. The room on the right is the targeting computer for the orange cannons out front and a scientist calibrating them.



They are watching baseball :tmgrin: This tv uses a printed tile that we had that was supposed to be some sort of tv, I think for astronauts. I also used the printed tiles on the sides to simulate speakers.


and that is the remodeled Vader's Volcano

Imagination is everything. Even for holes in floors.

Check out those supports, the coaster supports look cool.
