These are three more LEGO Habitats from various Collectible Minifigure lines. The first is Series 14’s Spider Queen, followed by Series 15’s Pig Farmer, and finally the DC Figure’s Joker.

I thought it was about time to showcase another of my Ninjago District MOCs. This one comprises the Squeeze Juice Bar on the Upper Walkway level, T. Bone Family Butchers, the booking office for Wu’s Water Taxis and a dock for the Shrimp Boat which brings in the catch for the nearby Shrimp Shack Diner.
There’s a bit of a craze going around at the moment for gravity-defying Tensegrity models. It has now reached the LEGO corner of the internet, and a few days ago Jason Allemann shared a video on how to make one – so I decided to have a go with a selection of rainbow-coloured bricks at my disposal.
Unfortunately, this wasn’t good enough for my friends in the London AFOLs who goaded me into making a Micropolis version – so here is Tensegrity Heights!
It is a top secret research facility, part of Micropolis University, where the boffins are looking into anti-gravity and other such magic. Of course, being such an iconic building, it’s the worst-kept secret in the city, but the staff are blissfully unaware they have been sussed.
A few days later, Beyond The Brick decided to collect a selection of the best LEGO Tensegrity models in this compilation, and I was delighted to be asked if I would contribute (a short clip appears at 2’08”)
I recently received some 1×1 trans black bricks from a BrickLink order, along with some 4×8 plates in an unusual colour – medium nogat. I began playing around with them along with some white grille bricks while I was chatting to LEGO buddy Jakob during video call. Eventually I settled on this L-shaped block with a diagonal window pattern, which I thought worked well. So this is Nougat Court, another residential block that will fit in very well in the city.
Recently, I was rummaging around my parts collection and came across two black plates – part 2401 – which Bricklink calls Plate, Modified 10 x 10 without Corner. I thought I could use them as the top and bottom of a new Micropolis model. Krikand Corner is a block of apartments, which will look very nice in the residential area of Micropolis.
