JopieK: Overpriced Coffee Cafe

E Everything is awesome: Still waiting for the Lego Movie to start in Germany which will not happen until April, alas. In the meantime we’re happy about the Lego Movie MOCs already being built. JopieK is the builder of this nice Overpriced Coffee Cafe. Join the discussion on Eurobricks.

D Der Kinostart des Lego Movie liegt noch in weiter Ferne (10. April), da erscheinen schon die ersten MOCs, die den Film zitieren. Dieses nette Overpriced Coffee Cafe, in dem Filmheld Emmet täglich Station macht, um Continue reading

Monorail Train (7w) with PowerFunctions

E This PF monorail train was built in May 2013 – a time when the moving cars were still far away. Anyhow the monorail will be an important part of the future city – there’s nothing that can replace this amazing concept.

In my view the existing monorail can be integrated very well in smaller city layouts, but I wanted to have something that moves more realistically than the usual monorail trains with their high speed and abrupt stops. So I opted for Continue reading

New: Mini Creator Sets 31013 + 31014

 

E Finally also available in Germany: The new Mini Creator sets 31013 (red helicopter) and 31014 (yellow excavator). Both sets offer a rather cheap way to get some of the 1×2 “half bows” in different colours.

D Endlich da: Die neuen Mini Creator Sets 31013 (roter Hubschrauber) und 31014 (gelber Bagger). Beide Sets enthalten einige der neuen 1×2 “halben Bögen” in verschiedenen Farben (31013 in rot und dunkelgrau, 31014 in gelb und hellgrau).

Farnheim: Fire Brigade Mobile Crane/Feuerwehr-Mobilkran

Farnheim: Fire Brigade Mobile Crane/Feuerwehr-Mobilkran

E You’d rather expect a bulky 7w or 8w mobile crane on BW, that’s for sure. But to be honest we don’t know many 8w mobile cranes that meet the complexity, the playability, and the detailing of this 4w (!) fire brigade crane built by Farnheim. The crane features a realistic brace support, a snotted crane arm, a lowered cabin and a water cannon at the top. The lift arm is fully operational, as can be seen below. Plus we love the combination of old and new LEGO parts which is typical of Farnheim’s designs. And his photography, of course.

D Natürlich, hier wäre eher ein klotziger Mobilkran in 7w oder 8w zu erwarten. Aber um ehrlich zu sein, Continue reading

szász: Oldtimer Cars

E szász is the builder of a series of great oldtimer cars. Although we prefer placing the figs side by side szász has convinced us with a wide range of shapings and great colour combinations. Looking forward to further vintage cars from szász!

D szász hat eine ganze Serie sehr schöner Oldtimer produziert. Obwohl wir Fahrzeuge bevorzugen, die Continue reading

Model Show in Goes (The Netherlands)/Lego-Event in den Niederlanden

Zeelandhallen, Goes (NL)

E On 22 and 23 February 2014 there was a large model show held in Goes, the Netherlands. In addition to railroads, ships and all kinds of vehicles there was also an area with a large Lego exhibition, where many nice MOCs were shown. Also present was the world famous (in the Netherlands) Incident City – the city were everything goes wrong.This was provided by De Bouwsteen (the largest association of Lego fans worldwide). 

D Am 22. und 23. Februar fand im niederländischen Goes (Zeeland) eine Modellbauausstellung statt. Ein Teil dieser Ausstellung war für De Bouwsteen reserviert, mit ca. 800 Mitgliedern die größte LUG weltweit. Zu sehen gab es vor allem MOCs aus dem Town-Bereich, darunter die in den Niederlanden sehr bekannte “Incidenten City” – eine Lego-Stadt, in der die Feuerwehr immer sehr viel zu tun hat (siehe unten).
