MOC: ‘The Intrepid Trio’: Build your own Story

Explore the depths of the mysterious cave with the Intrepid Trio! In this “Build your own Story” set, you can construct a unique adventure for you and your minifigures. Ride up to the abandoned property with the cute red car, examine the old rickety fence and leaning ‘Keep Out’ sign, and marvel at the beautiful trees. Step into the highly detailed mountain pass as you approach the cave threshold. And once you enter, who knows what you’ll find…

To see inside, easily remove the tops of the cave to explore all the possibilities. Constructed using an 8×8 modular system, you can build your own exciting details–even traps! In the examples included, you’ll find a giant spider web, hidden treasure, cave formations, and crumbling rock (pull the pin to drop your minifigure into the rock). There are 12 total 8×8 sections–who knows what the adventurers could find!

Features:

  • Stylish red car
  • 3 unique minifigures
  • Leaning ‘Keep Out’ sign
  • Rickety fence with “broken” pickets
  • Colorful, natural elements
  • Highly detailed mountain pass
  • 12 8×8 modular sections

Special thanks to Mr. Roy and catznbears for their constant support and contribution!

MOC: Rumble at the Ruin

In a futuristic ruined world, a group of creepy marauders, in impractical gas guzzling war machines, attack a ruined building…

Fire the cannons on The Wrecker at the ruin, blast stuff with the cannons on the motorcycle, eat all the food in the fridge in the ruined building, fight off the marauders, and graduate college… Two of these have nothing to do with the set…

This set features a large tank car (‘The Wrecker’),  huge flaming motorcycle, ruined building, cannon, and 9 minifigures (5 marauders, 4 survivors).

MOC: Ragge Runarson’s Business Building

Back in the 80s Ragge Runarson was running a small computer software company. This is how his business building looked like.

Design

It is a highly detailed Modular Building that has a special design which I think could attract both younger and adult builders.

The model is composed by two facilities. The brown facility is where Ragge’s office was, and on the back there is a door that leads up to the roof of the office, where Ragge sometimes sat and drank his tea. The white cottage is the office where his employees worked.

Story

Businesses had been bad for Ragge Runarson in the increasingly desolate little town. Because of the current recession, sales had fallen drastically and all of his employees had to quit. It was with mixed feelings that he was standing at the window of the office building and looking out over his lifework.

He remembered how he so happily rode to work every morning on his red bicycle. And he remembered the now broken cement mixer which he would use to finish cementing the walkway to the white cottage.

But hopefully there would someday soon come someone who would be interested in buying the building, and then Ragge could start all over again!

LEGO Set Highlight: 3433 The Ultimate NBA Arena

Released in 2003, 3433 The Ultimate NBA Arena was a unique set in multiple ways. It led the charge of 27 sets in the year to be the only ones ever to include altered minifigures: the legs had special springs for ‘jumping’ and the hands were cut off at the bottom so that a minifigure could hold a basketball. Also, it was the largest of the NBA sets which included minifigure representation of actual NBA players; this one contained 10 of the most famous players of all time. The theme lasted only 2 years and was the only one with such minifigures, until 2016 when a series of 16 minifigures of the German soccer team was released.

MOC: 1955 Ford Fairlane Victoria

Cruise the streets with style in the highly-detailed, minifigure-scale 1955 Ford Fairlane Victoria! This old-fashioned classic from the 50’s was a member of Ford’s brand-new line of vehicles: the Fairlane models, produced to keep up with Chevrolet’s new and very popular Bel Air automobile. The Fairlane cars were the first Ford vehicles to feature optional seatbelts, factory-installed air conditioners, and panoramic windshields.

This brick-built version has everything a car lover could ask for: chrome bumpers and grille, opening doors, accurate color styling, smooth design from the front to the back, roomy interior with a steering wheel and gauges, and (coming soon) opening trunk. The complex building techniques employed in this model account for its near-perfect recreation of the original using 182 parts. The entire model is 17 studs long, 6 2/3 studs wide, and 4 bricks high.
