This Dunkin’ Donuts and Texas Road House are built in the Lego Modular scale. And, just like in real life these buildings will stick out. The bright fast food colors of this Lego Dunkin’ Donuts would wake up the most sleepy Minifig. These two buildings are relatively simple looking and are both based off the same template (just like their real life versions). Although they do hide a lot of interesting details. Check out the Lego windows being used as a modern overhang over at DD. While the Texas Road House has a cute little cactus out front. These SNOT style buildings look good and would be a perfect addition to any modern town set up. After all, your Lego Minifigures need to eat food too.
Lego Batman has a new movie coming out and that means that all of Gotham City is getting ready for new adventures. Here is an expanded Arkham Asylum based on the official Lego set; Arkham Asylum Breakout (10937). Created by durazno_33 in celebration of The Lego Batman Movie. This MOC will be added to a larger display in Feburary; a part of a project by the AFOL club, Cactus Brick. The whole build is based on the modular style. Each piece of the building can be removed easily, which makes it perfect for transport. The Asylum sits on six total base plates. Which is much larger then the Breakout set. Speaking of breaking out, it looks like Poison Ivy and Mr. Freeze are in the middle of an escape. But, Batman and Robin will shut that down. All of which might just be a distraction from the real break out. Joker and Harley Quinn.
Nothing like speeding through the desert in a red hot rod. Just don’t break down, the vultures might get to you. It looks like it might be a bit too late for some poor backpacker. This little vignette of Red 66 is the creation of Sylon-tw. Every piece is carefully placed. Check out how slick the engine turned out. The ice-skating blade is a stand out detail.
The old Lego Trolls are interesting. Only their arms/hands move which limits their usability. Lego should articulate the legs, at the very least. Look at the Minifigure compared to these Bigfigures. Even with their limited use, people still find new things to do with them. Check out this Lego Troll by nita_great. It looks ready for a night out with friends. They even posted a photo showing the parts. So you too can dress up your Trolls, or even your Hulks.
“Bobo, I know I say this every century, but I’ll never leave you behind again.” — Mr. Burns
The Simpsons and Lego are full of many possibilities. Shannon Sproule has re-created one of the more odd scenes from the animated television show. This Lego futuristic Mr. Burns is based on Rosebud episode, from season 5. The setting is the year 1,000,000 A.D. and Mr. Burns has finally reacquires his beloved stuffed animal, with the help of a robotic dog Smithers.
Lego Artist, RaddingtonFalls has created a few signs in support of the Women’s March in New York City. Where massive amounts of people in NYC and around the globe are standing up for the “protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families – recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.”
If it wasn’t for the Pirate business, this Lego Coral Island Sandbar looks like a great place to vacation and scuba dive. Too bad, these Pirates are in the middle of some sort of hostage exchange. I would bet this doesn’t end well. Of course the stand out feature of this Lego MOC are not the Pirates but the island. The underwater part is especially nice. By using the newer pastel colors and putting a transparent blue ceiling the effect of water/underwater is achieved. The use of azure Lego Minifigure hands as some of the coral is perfect. This scene is teeming with Lego sea life.
Sometimes Nintendo Game Boys go bad. Throwing cartridges around, and burning through batteries. This Lego Game Bad is the creation of J.B.F. The whole MOC is works well, but the buttons are especially nice. Check out the 1×2 flat bricks wedged between 1×1 wedges. The D-Pad control looks spot on too. The Nintendo Game Bad plays only the worst games, which is no problem. The Game Boy library is full of junk, although it has a few gems. Just make sure to keep it fed with AA batteries.
Lego builder Qian Yj has specialized in building Chinese themed Lego MOCs. One of their latest models is this “Lego Chinese Wind Architecture – Kuang Dian.” It is an amazing study of Chinese Architecture. The facade near perfect. Check out the details such as the trim around the roof, the red lanterns, the various seating arrangements, and the custom signage.
This Lego Restaurant is not a small building, and the interior is fully built. It looks like there are private dinning rooms, booths, a kitchen, and more all squeezed in. Using the 2×4 flat plates for detailing on the walls is a great idea.
This Lego Restaurant is actually based on a real life location. The restaurant is located around the Sanyuanqiao Station in Beijing. If you compare it to the Lego version, you will that almost every detail is represented. The scale is a bit off, but that is typical of Lego projects.
Peter Parker is just your average teenage Minifigure. Based on his apartment you would never guess his secret. That he is Spider-Man. Ben Cossy has created Peter Parker’s Apartment in Lego. A place for his Spider-Man and Mary Jane Minifigures to hang out. This Lego Studio-Apartment is fully furnished. In the main room you will find a double bed, old tube-style TV, computer, mini-kitchen, and a sofa. Among all the little details you might spot a NES, or Iron Man’s Helmet. All of the little custom stickers up on the walls look great. Off to the side is Peter Parker’s Bathroom. A standard small bathroom, with tub, toliet, and sink. Too bad there isn’t enough room for a shower. Spider-Man must stink after a night out.
