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).

“I had this idea in LEGO Creator Style editing the Steven Grant’s Villa, brought in my project Moon Knight. The villa’s interior is very similar to the previous project, but I have modified to build with the same bricks, three different buildings. For my project I used only the basic colors present in LDD program.”

Design Features:

1) Villa. This construction consists of 470 bricks. Includes 2 minifigures, 1 cat and a quad. You can open the house to access the five rooms. In the lower floor there are the hall, the kitchen and living room. In the upper floor there are the bathroom, bedroom and access to terrace. The terrace is equipped with sun lounger, coffee table and parasol. The garden is equipped with awning, silk, barbecue, table and chair for outdoor dining.

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!

Quick-Brick Fun Fact 7

Did you know…?

The largest LEGO set as of right now is 10189 Taj Mahal, with 5922 pieces. When it was released in 2008, it swiped the award for set with highest part quantity from 10179 Ultimate Collector’s Millennium Flacon (5195 pieces), which held the position for only 1 year. Regardless, 10179 is still the heaviest LEGO set: it weighs over 22 lbs (8 lbs more than 10189)!!!

LEGO Set Highlight: 10253 Big Ben

The beautiful architectural masterpiece and a crown jewel of Great Britain is perfectly recreated in this amazing set! The giant timepiece acts as a cornerstone for the Palace of Westminster, some of which is included in this massive product. Released on June 15th, 2016 to LEGO VIP members and on July 1st, 2016 for everyone else, it is constructed with 4163 pieces and priced at $249.99 (£169.99, 219.99€).  It stands over 23″ high, is 17″ wide and is 7″ deep. Notable features include 4 printed clock faces along with movable hands, rare gold-colored pieces, beautiful scenery, and tinted-transluscent elements.

MOC: Forest Chapel

The beautiful Forest Chapel is from a bygone era of architecture, evidenced by the arches, windows, doors, faded gold bell and rope, worn pathways, vine-clad tower, and lanterns. The sturdy structure of the chapel has both a well-built, angled roof, and smooth walls. Under its removable roofs, it contains rows and rows of pews inside, pulpit, decorative cross with crown atop, doors, desk with chair and candle, and bookcase. Surrounding the building are pretty trees, fountain, chain fence with opening gate, and the tall tower topped with a stony cross. This is an example of ancient European history, when church buildings such as this were commonplace in villages and towns during the 16th and 17th centuries. If you are a LEGO fan, history expert, or a lover of ancient architecture, this is a creation for you.

MOC: Hardware Store (Rural)

“Built on two 16×16 plates this hardware store carries tools, irrigation and fencing materials that every farmer needs to run their farm with…not to mention sprayer backpacks and chain saws! This building uses SNOT (stud not on top) and hinges for the window mountings. The inspiration for this build comes from a similar kind of but now disused store in a town in South Australia’s South East, Lucindale.  Continue reading

MOC: Billund LEGO House

This is the new Lego House under construction in Billund, Denmark.

“Fascinated by the architecture of the building, I built my first LEGO Architecture set and a colorful version of this. I know it gives the LEGO set 4000010, but I think it must give a colorful set of this building, because LEGO is so colorful. My set shows the colorful life of LEGO. I hope I can enjoy the building soon in real life.” – AWI2345 Continue reading

MOC: US Style Gas Station

“This is my version of a Kroger gas station, a simple dual bowser set up with a pay point. No vehicles or minifigs have been included, though can be added later. I had to custom make a window cleaning tool and an original bowser design – a bowser also means fuel pump/dispenser.” – Lightningtiger
