Review: The LEGO Neighborhood Book

Review: The LEGO Neighborhood Book

When LEGO introduced the Cafe Corner back in 2007 I had a feeling they were on to something big. Of course the set was amazing, but because of the modular construction of not only the levels of the building, but also the standard for adjoining buildings, the set offered promise. Promise of not only future sets, but also the promise of the building community bringing their own neighborhoods to life.

USS Ticonderoga

As SHIPtember lumbers on some builders are crossing the finish line early. But in this case, it's not about being done quickly, this is about being done awesomely. This SHIP by Rphilo004 is super clean and well designed. For me a hallmark of a fantastic build is an inability to judge scale, and you really need to look close at this vessel to see how big it really is.

Does That Thing Pick Up ESPN?

Yeah, I could have gone for SyFy, or Comedy Central, but since it's football season and everyone else seems pretty excited by that I thought I'd go all sports and stuff. This MOC by builder legotanks has so many details and a feeling of authenticity that it must be inspired by a real dish. And that attention to detail makes it a very successful build.

3 X Awesome

It took me a few minutes to wrap my head around these (and to be honest, I'm not sure I truly have yet). Builder Izzo Yossi has created a trio of drones that go to the next level. Each is impressive on it's own, but it also has a companion that is also not only a drone on it's own, but can be attached and worn as accessories to increase capability (yeah, mind blowing). Do yourself a favor and click through for more pics, it's worth it.

Owly

This is so freakin' adorable. From builder eldeeem comes the iconic Owly from the book series by Andy Runton. The pose, shapes and spirit of this MOC captures Owly perfectly, you just want to pick him up and hug him.
