I had great fun last weekend displaying my Micropolis at Mowbray Bricks in North Yorishire. And I would like to thank all the other exhibitors from brickalleylug.co.uk, LNUR and Brickshire LUGs, who let me play with their trains and monorail to make this compilation for you Enjoy the ride!
This amazing Classic Space collection, including two monorail trains, was on display at the Discovery Brick Show 2019 in Newcastle recently. It all belongs to Brick Alley LUG members Steve and Matt. Of course, I was mesmerised and could have watched it all for hours!
When the new Emmet and Benny’s ‘Build and Fix Workshop (set 70821) came out a couple of weeks ago, I immediately bought a copy, along with Benny’s Space Squad because, spaceship! Spacship! SPACESHIP! In a previous video, I showed you my reMOC of 918 One Man Spaceship, the smallest ship from the old Classic Space theme. Since then, I have been thinking about doing the same for 924, Space Transporter.
I absolutely loved the Classic Space sets when they came out in the late 70’s. I had several of the ships, including this one – LL918, which I played with incessantly. But in my late teens, I sold off all my LEGO and went into my Dark ages. I decided to have a go at what an almost 30-year Anniversary refit might look like – and this is what I came up with.
A few months ago I acquired the LEGO Gift With Purchase set, 40291 Creative Personailities, showing Danish children’s author Hans Christian Andersen writing one of his books on a bench, complete with a swan lake and a small child passing by.
While the official scene was nice enough, I felt I wanted to create a custom insert for the book and chose science fiction, my favourite genre, to depict.
I teamed up the spaceship Micro build from the Dimensions Benny Fun pack, flying in the vacuum of space on one page, and the astronaut from Collectable Minifig series 15 sitting at a custom made control console on the other page.
This is a quick look at some of the models which were on display at Discovery Brick Show in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, 6th-7th October 2018. It was organised by Brick Alley LUG, the LEGO user group for the North East.
I had a chance to have a quick look around during the setup on Friday evening, so a few trains etc weren’t running, but you should still get a good flavour of the event. There was a nice variety of models on show, with plenty of MOCs as well as some commercially-available sets on display.
I was displaying my Micropolis city, which you can see in a full video here.
