How not to make a cube look boring… This LEGO Microplis block is called Kiina House, named after the Bionicle set from which a couple of the detailing pieces come. The triangular windows on the street corner and zig zag panes to the rear also give the block visual interest.

This is Big Blue, the largest LEGO MIcropolis block so far built for my city. It sits on a 1/2 block footprint and represents a huge office tower in the Downtown area. The transparent bricks and two-tone blues all came from Pick A Brick hauls from visits to various LEGO shops.
This 1/4 block LEGO model is called Goldstar Plaza, an office block for the Downtown area of Micropolis. It is constructed from many pieces that I found in trips to Pick A Brick walls at local LEGO stores. Originally it was only half as tall, but I decided to extend it vertically and add another connecting bridge.
In this video, I show you how I built a new LEGO Micropolis block from start to finish. I had the original idea for the design from Micropolis Tutorial #4 and decided to use the pattern to build a real block, which I finish off with roof details and landscaping accents.
This video shows you three different designs for canal modules for my LEGO Micropolis city. Whilst they are not quite in the Micropolis standard as they are only 8 studs wide, I now have enough canal pieces to run through 8 full blocks, so they make a great addition to my city.
I have loved the BBC sci-fi sitcom Red Dwarf since the first series aired in 1988. I’ve often thought that the four main characters would make excellent LEGO BrickHeadz models, but I hadn’t seen anyone else making them. So I decided to do it myself!
This video shows you Dave Lister, Kryten, The Cat and Arnold J. Rimmer in all their glory.
If you have no idea who these reprobates are, take a look at the Official Red Dwarf website for some more insight.
