A She-Hulk and Iron Man Team Up

Ben Cossy Lego She-Hulk Iron Man Team

She-Hulk and Iron Man have teamed up to take down the famous Magneto. Amazingly the X-Men are no where to be found. The “She-Hulk and Iron Man Team Up” is an MOC created by Ben Cossy. The fight takes place in a downtown looking area. It looks to be about the same scale as the Lego Modular buildings. Then there is the road, which might have more pieces then the rest of the scene. The overall concept of this Marvel themed build is based on Superior Iron Man #1. In that comic they are fighting against the Teen Abomination. Here, they swapped in Magneto since an Abomination Minifigure was unavailable. A great decision, as it allows the addition of cars into the fight. Also if you look very carefully you might notice that the She-Hulk and Iron Man are unofficial Minifigures.

Welcome To The Lego City House Of Culture!

O0ger Lego House Of Culture 01

“This is a house where people meet and hang out, watch the latest indie band, record a demo, paint, or just grab a cup of coffee in the café.” — O0ger

This is the Lego House Of Culture, designed and build by O0ger. It is always an interesting challenge when you take one of those weird ugly Lego Pieces and use them in a new way. In this case, the gigantic wing that comes in sets like the Lego City Airport 60104. Two of these big wings are used to create the roof of the House of Culture. The large whole in the wing, where the rest of the plane goes has been transformed into a neat skylight. Some other details of note include the giant chess set on the patio, a nice looking bus shelter, and some neat benches built into the landscaping. The end result is one awesome architecture themed MOCs.

Minifigures Need To Eat Too. Lego Dunkin Donuts And Texas Road House.

Eric Badis Lego Dunkin Donuts Texas Road House

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.

Chinese Architecture – Near Sanyuanqiao Station, Beijing

qian yj Lego Chinese Architecture Restaurant

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.

Video Game Or Lego? – The Last Of Us Lego MOC

Tim Schwalfenberg The Last Of Us Lego

You can build anything out of Lego. Even huge dioramas based on zombie/apocalypse video games. Such as this MOC which is based on the The Last of Us. The game is easily one of the best of the last decade, and a sequel has recently been announced. The ruined buildings have been detailed down to the smallest piece. The whole creation is 3 1/2 feet wide, and 2 feet deep. It uses thousands and thousand of bricks. Interestingly enough, it sounds like one of the buildings here is made up of custom 3D printed bricks. Can you guess which one?

The buildings contain some incredible work creating the rundown walls of the buildings. A few of the techniques used can be seen over here. The Lego buildings even have plants and vines growing out of them. The whole overgrown feeling captures the game exactly. You can find some other details too: a ruined bus, a military vehicle, and even Minifigures of Ellie and Joel.

An interesting detail are the broken windows. Each building has a different way of creating these. There are stacked 1×2 clear bricks, overlapping multiple small Lego windows, unevenly stacked windows, and a combination of the other three.

The Last Of Us Lego Interiors.

“It was a challenge to create rundown interiors where furniture and other fixtures were still identifiable, but I think they turned out well.” — Tim Schwalfenberg

Each building contains fully customized and detailed interiors. Each floor is different which means there are a lot of hidden features in these buildings. A few of the scenes created contain ruined toilets, rundown kitchens, pillaged stores, and broken bars.

The only thing missing is a pack of Clickers, crazy Militias, or some Fireflies.

More Details About That Charming Lego Friends: Lovely Hotel

Lego Friends Lovely Hotel

The Lego Friends: Lovely Hotel is extremely charming and popular. This Lego MOC is amazingly difficult to find, but a few more photos of this modular hotel have surfaced. The Lovely Hotel made its first appearance at the Fujiyama Lego Camp ’12. This pink and purple Cafe Corner mod was displayed between the other town and train creations. This is a total conversion of the famous Cafe Corner (10182), replacing everything with Friends inspired details. This creation would fit in perfectly in any Heartlake City display, and would be at home in a Modular Building layout.

“The greatest Lego hero ever!” – The Lego Newspaper

The Lego Newspaper, The Greatest Lego Hero Ever

Have you ever tried to read the text on the current Lego Newspaper (4655208)? It is almost illegible but if you squint, you can maybe make out 90% of it. Reddit user PeterM76 wrote to Lego and got an official response, revealing the full text. Check it out:

“The greatest LEGO hero ever!

The LEGO news interviewed the hero after helping the old man. It was a quiet afternoon in the LEGO City. The minifigure hero walked through the streets and heard the old man shouting for help. Like every other minifigure the old man tried to protect the world against evil. He just forgot that he was old and not that fast anymore. After running through many streets the evil monster of the universe captured the old man and lifted him up in a tree. The LEGO hero ran when he heard the shouting, captured the villain and saved the old man in the tree. He only had one comment “I will do whatever it takes to save minifigures” ” Journalist: Annemette”

The International Hotel, A Cool Lego Modular Building

lgorlando's Lego International Hotel 01

It seems like every major city has an International Hotel. And, it is about time your Lego city got one too. An International Hotel would fit perfectly in the Lego Modular Building theme. The stark white trim, gold accents, and light blue color of this hotel gives this hotel a very regal look. This is the place all the rich Lego Minifigures would stay. There is a lot going on with the facade here. In a lot of ways this Lego International Hotel feels like an official Lego set. The little details, like the white round piece in the windows, the clock, and the grey statues all feel like something Lego would do. Which is a compliment. This is a really cool modular style building.
