“This project make possible to represent at least six of Molière’s most famous comedy : Dom Juan, Tartuffe, The Misanthrope, The Imaginary Invalid (Le Malade imaginaire), The Learned Ladies (Les Femmes savantes) and The Affected Young Ladies (Les Précieuses ridicules). But, of course, minifigures and pieces can be used to build anything you want !”
The Lego French Classical Stage is a Lego Ideas project created by Campistron1984. The stage is based on the Théâtre du Palais-Royal, a French theatre in the seventeenth century. This one has been set up to feature the Molière Comedies, and if you want you can build and create new backdrops to host any number of shows. The back of the theatre can easily be switched out. This Lego MOC comes equipped with a salon set, a dinning room, and a bedroom set. Also feature are a couple of trap doors, so you can fool even the most skeptical Minifigure. On the Lego Ideas page you can also view a set based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, to get an idea of how this thing works.

Some of the most impressive Arcade Machines in the 1980s and 1990s were from Sega. They were the masters of the oversized deluxe cabinets. SpacySmoke has recreated some of the iconic cabinets in their Lego Sega Classic Arcade Machines series. These are built in scale for Minifigures. They would fit right in with the Lego Dimensions Midway Retro Gamer. A whole Lego arcade could be put built, where your Minifigs can spend Saturday nights.
There are four Sega Arcade machines. They are all based on the deluxe versions. One awesome detail is that these Lego MOCs replicate the movements of the real life cabinets. Out Run (one of the most famous racing games) features a Lego model that moves left and right. Just like the real game. Space Harrier (a weird shooter game) can move up, down, left, right and tilt. Thunder Blade (a helicopter game) can rotate. While Hang-On (a motorcycle game) tilts left and right.

There is something timeless about the 1980’s Space themed Lego sets. Also known as Classic Space. The grey, blue, black, and yellow colors combine perfectly. This was a time when Lego space focused on exploration for its general theme. No wars here. The worst that could happen is the Minifigures would get into fights with megaphones.
Lego builder Billy Burg has taken the Classic Space theme and brought it up to current Lego standards. These MOCs are simple looking, but are carefully put together with popular SNOT techniques. No stray studs showing here. The Lunar Exploration Geological Outpost (LEGO) features the LL-1923 Spaceship, a Spacetruck, Speeder, Communications Satellite Dish, 2 Robot Drones, and a Robot Dog. All this equipment is operated by a team of 6 explorers. They are ready to find space gold on the moon.
“It’s essentially a recreation of the old classic space theme given a new twist, using modern building techniques, but keeping the ethos of the original theme: which to me is to fire up the imagination, have fun, play well, pretend you’re an astronaut and explore space! Very topical at the moment I feel.” — Billy Burg

“In order to enjoy The Great Outdoors in style, you can’t go wrong with a classic 1974 Ford Bronco with swivel seats, wood paneling, and a working winch to pull you out of trouble when nature proves to be tougher than most other vehicles can handle. A canoe strapped to the roof makes this an ideal vehicle for leaving the city life behind for awhile. Remember, next time you’re out enjoying the wilderness, take only photos and leave only footprints. Nature will appreciate it!”
This Lego version of the 1974 Ford Bronco is the creation of Lino Martins, which you can find more details over here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/lino_m/28336395110/
Lego rooms are quickly becoming a popular theme in the MOC world (here). The newest room is the creation of César Soares. What separates this Lego Kids Room from the others is the massive amount of decoration. There are Lego built posters, trophies, books, book ends, mini Lego models, a telescope, train, boat, etc. There is even a Lego built rug in the center, which is an ingenious solution, using texture to create a quilted pattern. This MOC is a good representation of the “ideal” boys room. This whole thing is rad. The poster with the green Lego alien is an especially good detail.
“This was made a few weeks ago but I was waiting for some modulex. Today I was able to get some and took some quick shots of the MOC.
It represents a kid’s room, based on my own childhood room, with some doodles hanged on the walls, lots of toys on the floor, lots of comics and a real mess 🙂
My favorite parts are the mini Imperial Shuttle and the flowers pot hanged next to the window. What’s yours (if any!)? 🙂
Hope you like it!” — César Soares

Flashback Friday: “Lego My Eggo!” — AuntiePesto
Bricklies is a weekly lego webcomic created by AuntiePesto and hosted by LegoGenre. Updates every Friday.
The Crystal Voyager is ready to cruise across the moon in style. This space buggy is the creation of Flickr user Karf Oohlu. They found a great use for the various Lego clear spheres. Even the most obscure, and seemingly useless Lego piece can be used creatively with a little imagination. The tiny T. Rex style hands are a nice touch too. Perfect for taking samples of moon rocks. The Crystal Voyager is a great example of retro futurism, just make sure your classic Lego spaceman has a lot of Tang, and freeze-dried ice cream for his journey. Hey, maybe he is listening to Journey too.

You can build almost anything out of Lego. Including extremely detailed model replicas of bedrooms. It is easy to say that a huge chunk of the Adult Lego fans grew up in the 1980s. This was a decade that is responsible for some of the most famous Lego sets out there. Including Lego Pirates, the Lego Monorail, and a good chunk of Classic Space. All of these sets were assembled in bedrooms across the world. LegoJalex has created an amazingly detailed replica of a stereotypical 1980s bedroom. Everything in this kids room is Lego. There are Lego versions of an Etch A Sketch, View Master, an RC Car, robots, and even a model builders desk. Everything is impeccable. Check out the fringe of the carpet, made from white Lego grill pieces, the slightly messed up look helps sell this as a well loved kids room.

Hulk Smash Lego bricks. These Lego versions of comic book covers are the creation of monsterbricks. The Lego comic book covers are also relief sculptures. Where a 3D image/figure is sculpted in front of the background. In this case it is The Incredible Hulk breaking through the ground, literally breaking out of the background and into your face. This is even more pronounced with the Captain America cover below. These Comic-Bricks (Lego Comics) are extremely fun. The overall design is greatly supported by the typography and logos, which is difficult to replicate with Lego bricks. Here the lettering is using a combination of brick built letters, and custom printed tiles. The end result is great. Check out the custom UPCs, price tags, publisher icons, etc. These are great recreations of their real life comic book inspirations; The Incredible Hulk #59, and Captain America #109.
Lego has had great success with their Super Heroes theme. It is a little bit weird that they have managed to license both Marvel Comics and DC Comics. Lego has been releasing mostly modern themed comic book stuff. With just a little of the classic or silver-age represented (The 1966 Batmobile). It would be awesome if Lego were to release 1 or 2 sets a year based on the golden-age or silver-age stuff. Imagine all the possibilities with Minifigures based on Jack Kirby, Gil Kane, Steve Ditko, Stan Lee, and John Romita designs.

Lego has a few sets that will forever be remembered. Each of the Lego themes have had a few of such sets over the decades. For Lego Pirates the most famous set is the Black Seas Barracuda (6285) from 1989. There was even a rerelease in 2002 called Black Seas Barracuda (10040) which had a few different pieces, but ultimately looked the same. These two sets are 13 years apart. Applying this information to today, it would mean that 2015 is due for another release. Maybe a mini Barracuda could happen. This example has been created by Bangoo H. The Mini Black Seas Barracuda has perfectly built brick sails, two mini pirate flags, and even some basic rigging. Everything about the original is represented here, even anchor. Maybe someday we will see an official Lego Mini Barracuda… maybe.
