JBartosch has created this street and displayed it in a LEGO Store. The book shop looks great.

Cafe Corner - Standards

MALUG refers to 'building standards' in these creations. I think the interiors are excellent.

Peachtree's Creations.

These creations are by peachtree. I can definately see some 'rules' for add-ons beginning to form themselves - e.g. 16 studs wide - interchangable storeys with tiles for easy removal.

A bigger picture of Market Street found by ApophisV - There's an indepth discussion going on about this set in the Eurobrick forum.

I like the boxes of fruit and the balconies. This picture shows the minifigs in more detail. Looks like one of them is wearing the classic overalls but in green.

Have to say - bit surprised about the price. Converted into UK sterling that would be 96.00 pounds... That's more than the Cafe Corner... and The Statue of Liberty 3450 when it came out a few years ago. Fingers crossed this is a mistake, unless there are hidden parts inside???

The Next Set after Market Street.

Weebleleezer's pictures of some designs that were shown to LEGO fans at an exhibition in Frechen. The fans were asked to complete a survey about which one they would most like to see as a proper LEGO set.
Taking the pictures from top to bottom and calling them A, B, C - which one do you like best?

Is that the ghost of Cafe Corner past?

I think I need to send this photograph to Most Haunted. Can you see the ghost in the background in pascalbreard's picture.

Different Colours.

This Cafe Corner is by patje.

Amazing Furniture - by Moko

Cafe Corner doesn't have an interior - however, these pieces of furniture, by Moko, would look amazing inside.

The Future is Now...

Several of the new sets mentioned in the previous blog are now available at LEGO Shop@Home UK.

I'm having a discussion on Bricklink at the moment - it appears that they are not available in Canada or the US yet.

The Future - Oooooh!!!

This picture along with others of Future 2007 Sets are supplied by chris6369.

I'm definately getting one of these. Tan LEGO is my favorite colour. I also like the size of the baseboards together - looks like 48 studs across (I could be wrong) and in Dark Bluish Grey.

I'm looking forward to the cement mixer and recycling truck. I have the ones from the eighties, but these new ones look more realistic. Which do you prefer?

Grand Designs

tacvud has a whole street of shops including a LEGO Shop, Antique Shop, Hotel and a House.
I think I like the tan building on this side the best.

Rejected Models

I've added a folder called rejects to Brickshelf. This one took a couple of hours on Saturday morning, now its been broken down and is back my storage boxes.

I don't mind too much - its all good practice at making better models - plus - There's always Sunday.

I've been thinking about the following additions: a pet shop (mainly because I have a lot of animals from parted Harry Potter sets), bakers (because you can get bread and cakes), car garage, launderette and railway bridge with train station.


I've been building this weekend. I think this street vendor should have smaller wheels, what do you think?

I have also added this lady in a wheel chair. Not sure how she's going to manage the steps into the Cafe yet.

Tall Hotel

Imagine cleaning all those windows...
