Working from home is becoming increasingly popular. You mostly get to set your own hours while you dress how you want. If you add up all the time spent in the office with meetings, talking at your desk, and taking breaks you might find that you are a lot more productive at home. So what do you do, when you find all your work finished in the first three hours of the day? Play video games, watch tv, make lunch, clean the house, and make Lego stuff. Check out this little Lego MOC, called “ ‘Working’ from home” created by jasoncichon. It is a very clean Minifigure scale desk. The mouse is especially great, as is the flat LCD monitor. All of this and not one stud in sight.

The Fiat 500 is a classic car often seen across the European continent. The two door compact car was famous for its ability to fit easily into tight city streets. It was manufactured in Italy between 1957 and 1975. As the years passed, the smaller design mixed with the curvy styling quickly made this a collectible. All of which makes it perfect as the latest release of the Lego Creator theme.

The tiny house is one of those concepts that has universal appeal. With just enough space to live and all the added benefits of being able to move around. It gives you the best of both worlds, a place to settle down and a nomadic lifestyle. What is better then a tiny house. A lego tiny house. Thomas Gion created this MOC. A perfect partner to the little home was also built; a faded green 1970 Chevrolet C10 Truck.

In the end, this MOC is one of the cleanest builds, there is not one extraneous piece.

The Lego Minifigures Series are fun to collect. They always look great too, especially when displayed in a group. One of the best ways to show off your collection is to build little mini MOCs or vignettes. These Lego Minifigures Series 19 vignettes are super cute. Created by zaru_soba, they show off all the different figures and create a mini story. The personality of each minifig matches up perfectly with their scene. The video gamer battlestation, the bathtub wave surfer, the dog sitter, and the retro gardener are some favorites. What is great is that these type of MOCs take relatively few pieces to build.
Stardew Valley is a modern day classic video game about managing and running a farm. Heavily influenced by the Harvest Moon series, Stardew Valley has surpassed it in every way. Starting the game with an old run down farm, and eventually turning it into a virtual paradise is surprisingly relaxing. The Brick Art has created a great Lego Stardew Valley MOC for Lego Ideas. Here 1568 pieces combine into a modular farm. The huge selling point is the upgradable buildings and land. The whole build has also been built to scale, doing its best to match the video game. There has also been considerations taken to be able to add on or expand the farm. Maybe some day the local town, caves, and coast, will be created…
“Inspired by the ornate architecture of New Orleans, this modular brings a touch of the Big Easy to the Modular street. At ground level is a gumbo restaurant with indoor fountain, a beignet bakery, a pirate statue (containing hidden treasure), and a wall fountain being sipped at by a bayou frog.”
This Lego MOC, created by inklingbricks, looks almost like an official release. The Lego Modular New Orleans Jazz Club contains three floors, perfectly matching the scale of other Modulars. On the side is also the narrowest building ever created. Between these two structures there is a restaurant, bakery, bar, club, and store. It even looks like the Blues Brothers are booked upstairs. This modular moc also contains a whole lot of easter eggs and secrets, all ready to be discovered. Finally the Jazz sign on top is perfectly built with a lego saxophone.
This is a Lego Village-In-A-Jar or is it a Bottle? A whole European style village is built inside this small jar. There is even a river and bridge. Plus rolling green hills and red roofs. This very charming village is the creation of AvengeTheMollusc. There are even plans in the future to add some trees, as soon as the correct pieces can be found. This is a great example of finding alternative ways to display awesome Lego MOC work.

Eventually their job is to dig a cellar for a new Town Hall. Lego Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel is a very charming MOC created by Lego Junkie. “I’ve got many fond memories of books that I read as a kid, but one that stands above the rest is Mike Mulligan and His Steam shovel.” This Lego Mary Anne captures many of the details from the book.

I Saw Spider-Man Today, is a Lego MOC by Barthezz Brick. The scene features three huge buildings, a few streets, and a whole lot of details. Everything looks weathered, accomplished by using various misaligned and ill-fitting Lego bricks. Giving the whole setting a very New York feel. Especially the more gritty version from some of the comics. There is a lot going on in this build. If you look carefully you can spot Spider-Man, a Sushi stand, Motorcycle, newsstand, and even a saxophone player. Everything has been brought together by the excellent use of custom decals and stickers. Especially the Coca-Cola sign.
Barthezz Brick has even provided a short story, setting the scene:
“The scultz gang robbed their third bank this week. I chased one of the robbers for three blocks when he tore his money bag on W 37th street. He lost more than half of his loot. I doubted, should i secure the money or should i keep chasing the bloke?
I decided to keep track on the scultz gang member, but then all of a sudden i saw spider-man. He came out of nowhere and webbed the guy in the middle of a busy crossroad. It was amazing!! Finally when the police arrived they arrested that son of a b*tch and took him to the nearest police station.
It was amazing to see my childhood dreams came true. Spider-Man you’re my Hero!”
