When I was at the Discovery Brick Show recently, LEGO friend Bricks McGee presented me with a pot of random stuff and said “build something Micropolis-y with that!” With the addition of some of my own pieces such as orange 1×2 clips, cheese wedges, SNOT bricks and a random Bionicle weapon (57563 Mahri Matoran Blade), plus some Spongebob porthole windows, I used quite a few of the bits I was given to put together this module, the Micropolis Oceanographic Research Institute – or MORI for short.
This delightful little Micropolis module depicts the inconic Angel Of The North, a huge sculpture by Anthony Gormly which sits on top of a hill on the outskirts of Gateshead in the North East of England. It wasn’t actually built by me, but by my LEGO buddy Richard Carter, aka The Bricks McGee. It arrived mysteriously in my Micropolis layout after I had set up for the Discovery Brick show in October. Richard said he doesn’t really do other microscale builds, and I was welcome to have this lovely model as long as I took it to shows with the rest of my stuff. It’s a deal!
