I know some people aren’t fans of Minions, but I personnaly love them. So I was delighted to get my hands on a set of the Brick-built Minions and their Lair (75551) a while back. The interiors of the big Minions are crammed full of fun features. And since I had quite a few pieces left over from the second set, I decided to make some Minifigure Habitats for the three duplicate mini Minions I ended up with.
This trio of custom Minifigure Habitats are a fun set, starting with one of the old Pirate theme’s Captains, CMF Series 11’s Gingerbread Man and CMF4’s Hazmat Suit Guy.
I haven’t built anything for the residential district of Micropolis recently, with my last few models being industrial, offices or leisure based. So this block is called High Cross, which accommodates a total of nine large apartment, one on each floor which is set at right angles to the one below.
A lot has changed in my LEGO room since I did my last Blockville update from Old Town back in February 2019!
This is my latest Great Ball Contraption module which is built to a design by Matt Norman at greatballpit.com where the plans are freely available.
A while back I got a bulk lot of pieces which contained several hundred of these – part 63082 – which BrickLink snappily calls “Plate, Modified 2 x 2 with Tow Ball Socket, Short, Flattened with Holes and Axle Hole in Center”. Rather long-winded, but I wanted to use them for something and decided another high rise Micropolis block was the way to go.
