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.
Lego Minifigures are lining up to eat a Cool Ranch® Doritos® Locos Tacos or a KFC Famous Bowl®. They can even wash it down with an ice cold Pepsi, Yum (Brands)! These two Lego MOC fast food buildings are the creation of Eric Badis, who is putting together a nice collection of Lego fast food joints. The Lego Taco Bell features the standard beige and purple design you will find in almost any city. The sign/logo and the wallpaper pattern are all custom printouts applied to the Lego building. The end result is amazingly lifelike. Then their is the Lego KFC, which features a more exaggerated design. It is based on the red and white stripe motif that you find on their buckets. This tall two story building will fit in with the official modular buildings.
“This project make possible to represent at least six of Molière’s most famous comedy : Dom Juan, Tartuffe, The Misanthrope, The Imaginary Invalid (Le Malade imaginaire), The Learned Ladies (Les Femmes savantes) and The Affected Young Ladies (Les Précieuses ridicules). But, of course, minifigures and pieces can be used to build anything you want !”
The Lego French Classical Stage is a Lego Ideas project created by Campistron1984. The stage is based on the Théâtre du Palais-Royal, a French theatre in the seventeenth century. This one has been set up to feature the Molière Comedies, and if you want you can build and create new backdrops to host any number of shows. The back of the theatre can easily be switched out. This Lego MOC comes equipped with a salon set, a dinning room, and a bedroom set. Also feature are a couple of trap doors, so you can fool even the most skeptical Minifigure. On the Lego Ideas page you can also view a set based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, to get an idea of how this thing works.
Is your Lego Store (3300003) looking a bit lonely on your shelf? This Lego Uniqlo store is the perfect companion. The building has been designed with modularity in mind. You could create a whole series of box stores, and recreate an outdoor mall.
This MOC is the creation of neruneruneranai, who worked hard to get a lot of the details correct. The brick built sign in front is an almost perfect recreation of the Uniqlo logo. If you look at the details in the interior of the building you will see haphazardly stack clothing, and a lot of bright colors. Just like a real Uniqlo store. This is the place to go if your Minifigures are looking for some new pants or shirts.
Feeling a little bummed out that the new Lego Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters (75827) is $349? Don’t worry because you can create a mini headquarters for a whole lot cheaper. The end result is infinitely cuter too.
LDiEgo has created a new Lego Ideas project for a massive Jurassic Park Visitor Center. Lego is currently creating Jurassic Park World sets, but haven’t released anything from the previous 3 movies. It seems a project like this would be a perfect fit for Lego Ideas, which seems to have a soft spot for popular films. A few project have been proposed, but there has been no word on them from Lego (here).
This modular style Lego Jurassic Park Visitor Center would be 2,623 pieces. Which is way more then any previous Lego Ideas release has contained. The whole complex features the Main Entrance Hall, “Les Gigantes” restaurant, a Kitchen, a Dinning Room, an Emergency Bunker, a Showcase Theater, a Control Room and a Genetics Lab. Also proposed are two dinosaur skeletons, the Tyrannosaurus Rex and a Sauropod. There would be one Raptor included, named “Clever Girl.” Plus six Minifigures: John Hammond, Tim Murphy, Lex Murphy, Donald Gennaro, Ray Arnold, and Robert Muldoon.
The Lego Friends: Lovely Hotel is extremely charming and popular. This Lego MOC is amazingly difficult to find, but a few more photos of this modular hotel have surfaced. The Lovely Hotel made its first appearance at the Fujiyama Lego Camp ’12. This pink and purple Cafe Corner mod was displayed between the other town and train creations. This is a total conversion of the famous Cafe Corner (10182), replacing everything with Friends inspired details. This creation would fit in perfectly in any Heartlake City display, and would be at home in a Modular Building layout.
When entering the Hotels front entrance an Ice Cream parlor can be found on the first floor. Here the Lego Friends can chill out and watch the coming and goings of the crowded streets outside. The entrance into the building can be found on the right side of the building. The first two rooms occupy the second floor, accessible from the narrow staircase. Each room features a stylish bed, and vanity. On the top floor is the penthouse suite. This room is jam packed with a full bathroom, bed, vanity, telephone, chandelier, and even custom curtains.

The Lego Architecture line has proven to be extremely popular. Which has lead to a whole lot of people creating their own Architecture inspired creations. This is the Monasterio de El Escorial built by Gabriel Riutort. The Monasterio de El Escorial is a residence of the King of Spain, located in San Lorenzo de El Escorial. Construction of the building started in 1563 and completed in 1584. The Lego version would be built from 1000+ bricks, and contain the whole landmark. The red roof of the monastery is extremely iconic, as is the symmetrical system of rooms surrounding the main building. Even the Gardens of the Friars is instantly recognizable. The best part is the inclusion of a mock box, set in the typical design of the Lego Architecture theme.
