A place downtown to meet your Friends

I love seeing Friends colors and sets incorporated into awesome builds, and Allan Corbeil has done a magnificent job with that. He’s given us a lovely Cafe Corner modular building, based on 41035 Heartlake Juice Bar.

Black and White photo of my Lego Modular Building MOC

While I love the black and white old-timey pictures, I have to share the stand-alone shot, too. The Juice Bar looks just lovely built into the ground floor of this brick building. The detail for the top floor is quite lovely and very reminiscent of the details that LEGO puts into other modular sets, particularly 10243 Parisian Restaurant and 10251 Brick Bank.

Lego Building #8


I finally finished up my church yesterday and decided to take some pictures today. It used up practically my entire supply of basic brown bricks (which wasn’t a lot in the first place), but I think it was worth it. There’s no picture of the interior, as it’s pretty bland, but I hope you all enjoy it! 
At some point, I need to get a photo of all my buildings together….
For more pictures, just head on over to Flickr.


Architectural genius Matija Grguric brings us this elegant train station and other town buildings in grand detail. Down to a shopping center and up to a skyscraper, everything’s there. This is a true inspiration for anyone wanting to build something, so take heed and look through these magnificent creations.

The incredible train station. Well positioned with a very imposing style.

Color variation is just excellent. Dark blue, dark red, light blue, light gray — it’s all there.

 …and then there’s that awesome Honda billboard (closer image here). I really like how these two buildings just work together. The contrast is perfect.

Check out the whole town display over at Matija’s Flickr photostream!

The Cafe is Now an Embassy

There’s been a lot of Cafe Corner mods over the years, many of them seem redundant and lack any unique concept whatsoever. Flickr user, Atom For Peace, however, is an exception. Take a gander at the new Legoland Embassy. As well as being a terrific idea all in itself, the MOC is just fun to look at. The “under construction” look came across very well, and the white stands out perfectly for a government embassy. Keep up the great builds, Atom!

Blue Bard’s Weird Social Club

A great little building with two floors for the strange and funny. Visit the second floor for some music or hang out with the old lady and her cat on the first. Do this all while watching an RC plane on the roof and some gun sight adjustment for a dummy. Every city needs that “weird part of town”, and Blue Bard addressed that issue first hand.

19th Century Office Tower

Now this is what I’m talking about. MOCpages user Jonas James writes this:

This design incorporates the use of light and dark contrasting to emphasize form and conceals roof structures with a decorative crowning parapet.

And it works perfectly. Great building, can’t wait to see more!

Museum of Antiquities

With a large imposing view, this museum brings up the good memories of Johnny Thunder as he ventured through the desert, jungle, and mountains. From expensive gold dinosaurs to walls lined with hieroglyphics, one will see the time taken to get every detail right. Just check out the glass showcases to get an idea. Great job all around, Atlas!


What I enjoy most about this is the European look to it. The horizontal lines cutting across the facade makes for a simple, but realistic structure. The arched windows also make for a very appealing look. Good work, Profound Whatever!


A terrific building by Flickr member Jared Chan features another clothing outlet in his long line of clothing outlets. As always, his details are top notch and offer that “solid” look so well known with the Cafe Corner line of sets from LEGO. Keep up the great buildings!
