Campistron1984 Lego French Classical Stage 01

“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 !”

Campistron1984 Lego French Classical Stage Detail

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.

A Lego Gumball Machine – Not For Human Consumption

Anthony Sejourne Lego Gumball
“I think this set can seduce a lot of people because it is an ancient and modern object at once, it can remember the childhood memories for some.

Je pense que cet ensemble peut séduire un grand nombre de personnes car c’est un objet ancien et moderne à la fois, il peut rappeler les souvenirs d’enfance pour certains.” — Anthony Séjourné

This cute little Lego gumball machine is a great retro styled MOC. It even features a spinning dial/handle. It does not take coins though, and the gum balls are not edible. This project is the work of Anthony Séjourné, who has a Lego Ideas page: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/166207

Lego Stitch: Experiment 626. Extremely Dangerous.

Legohaulic Lego Stitch

Experiment 626, more commonly known as Stitch has been let loose. By far one of the cutest laboratory experiments, even though he was designed to destroy populated areas. Stitch has been officially classified extremely dangerous. The good news is that he met Lilo in Hawaii, where a series of adventures taught him to ignore all his programming. Resulting in Stitch becoming one of the most enduring characters. This Lego Stitch MOC is created by Legohaulic. Who has spent months carefully refining this design. The figure is just about 7 inches tall, and has 13 points of articulation. Meaning that Stitch can be posed doing almost anything you can image. He also has a collection of costumes, from Halloween to Experiment 626 (where he grows 2 more arms, and antennae).

Lego Stitch is up on Lego Ideas, so make sure to vote for it if you want Lego to make this into an official set.

These Lego Classic Sega Arcade Machines Are Radical!

SpacySmoke Lego Classic Sega Arcade

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.

Legobob32 Red Dwarf Lego Ideas

The British television show Red Dwarf has been floating through space for over 20 years. It is about time the crew get their own Lego Ideas set based on the cult comedy show. The Lego Red Dwarf set features an amalgamated interior of the ship, and references to a lot of classic episodes. The main design is based on Season X. It includes the famous bunk beds, posters, a sliding airlock, Holly Hop Drive, and Skutters. Also included in the Lego Ideas project is the Blue Midget, which is anything but small. There are six custom Minifigures, created by Minifigs.me, which includes: Dave Lister, Kryten, Arnold Rimmer, Daune Dibbley, CAT, and Ace Rimmer.

A neat thing you don’t always see is that this Lego Ideas project is listening to the comments and updating the design. The Blue Midget has had its front redesigned, a Talkie Toaster added, and improved Holly screens.

The Massive Samurai Code Lego Project

Ben Pitchfork Samurai Code Lego Project

Lego MOCs come in all shapes and sizes, and some of the most remarkable are the also the largest. This is the Samurai Code; a gigantic MOC created by Ben Pitchfork. Just the cost to build something like this is something to marvel at. Thousands and thousands of Lego pieces make up this huge Japanese volcanic island. This project has a little bit of everything, a huge MOC, a Lego Ideas proposal, and time-lapse video.

Ben Pitchfork Samurai Code Lego Project Light

Featuring an ancient shrine (or samurai dojo), a huge mountain lake, multiple waterfalls, a volcano, beach, rope bridges, islands, steep cliffs, winding paths, and lots of little secrets. This is a masterpiece.

Swiss Ghostbusters's Lego Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters 75827 Review

Swiss Ghostbusters got their hands on the upcoming Lego Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters (75827) a few weeks early. The new set will be released in January 2016, at $350. They put together an extremely slick build and review video. This thing is huge.

In it you will see the building process of the set in a timelapse and a small review of the features of the Ghostbusters headquarters.

The pure building phase would take about 10-12 hours.
We had a lot of fun building this great set and we especially recommend it to any Ghostbusters fan.”

Lego The Big Bang Theory Cover

It has finally happened, the new Lego Ideas #010 set The Big Bang Theory (21302) has been released. If you made it to San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) this year, you were able to get your hands on the new set a few weeks early. As for the rest of the world, we will need to wait until August 1st. The whole thing is made up of 479 pieces and will be priced at $€59.99. This is not a cheap set, and the price per piece is high.

Brickset has posted one of the first reviews of this set (here). The review is full of high resolution photos, and walks you through the basic build process. It is also sprinkled with comments from Alice, who just happens to be a fan of The Big Bang Theory. Make sure to read the whole review!

“I think it’s a great set for TBBT fans that are not already LEGO fans because even I, who hasn’t played with LEGO for 10 years, wanted to build it just so I could recreate the set.…”

When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth – Lego Jurassic Park Visitor Center

LDiEgo's Lego Jurassic Park Visitor Center

LDiEgo has created a new Lego Ideas project for a massive Jurassic Park Visitor Center. Lego is currently creating Jurassic Park World sets, but haven’t released anything from the previous 3 movies. It seems a project like this would be a perfect fit for Lego Ideas, which seems to have a soft spot for popular films. A few project have been proposed, but there has been no word on them from Lego (here).

LDiEgo's Lego Jurassic Park Visitor Center Modular

This modular style Lego Jurassic Park Visitor Center would be 2,623 pieces. Which is way more then any previous Lego Ideas release has contained. The whole complex features the Main Entrance Hall, “Les Gigantes” restaurant, a Kitchen, a Dinning Room, an Emergency Bunker, a Showcase Theater, a Control Room and a Genetics Lab. Also proposed are two dinosaur skeletons, the Tyrannosaurus Rex and a Sauropod. There would be one Raptor included, named “Clever Girl.” Plus six Minifigures: John Hammond, Tim Murphy, Lex Murphy, Donald Gennaro, Ray Arnold, and Robert Muldoon.
