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!

LEGO Set Highlight: 600 Police Car

The very first set to feature a LEGO minifigure was this set: 600 Police Car. Though the model is small and extremely disproportionate, the set is so significant, as it led the way for thousands of sets with thousands more minifigures. Released, of course, in 1978 following the patent of the LEGO Minifigure, it was composed of 23 pieces, and shared set numbers with an Ambulance set released in 1970.

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.
