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…
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.
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!”
She-Hulk and Iron Man have teamed up to take down the famous Magneto. Amazingly the X-Men are no where to be found. The “She-Hulk and Iron Man Team Up” is an MOC created by Ben Cossy. The fight takes place in a downtown looking area. It looks to be about the same scale as the Lego Modular buildings. Then there is the road, which might have more pieces then the rest of the scene. The overall concept of this Marvel themed build is based on Superior Iron Man #1. In that comic they are fighting against the Teen Abomination. Here, they swapped in Magneto since an Abomination Minifigure was unavailable. A great decision, as it allows the addition of cars into the fight. Also if you look very carefully you might notice that the She-Hulk and Iron Man are unofficial Minifigures.

This is the Lego House Of Culture, designed and build by O0ger. It is always an interesting challenge when you take one of those weird ugly Lego Pieces and use them in a new way. In this case, the gigantic wing that comes in sets like the Lego City Airport 60104. Two of these big wings are used to create the roof of the House of Culture. The large whole in the wing, where the rest of the plane goes has been transformed into a neat skylight. Some other details of note include the giant chess set on the patio, a nice looking bus shelter, and some neat benches built into the landscaping. The end result is one awesome architecture themed MOCs.
This Dunkin’ Donuts and Texas Road House are built in the Lego Modular scale. And, just like in real life these buildings will stick out. The bright fast food colors of this Lego Dunkin’ Donuts would wake up the most sleepy Minifig. These two buildings are relatively simple looking and are both based off the same template (just like their real life versions). Although they do hide a lot of interesting details. Check out the Lego windows being used as a modern overhang over at DD. While the Texas Road House has a cute little cactus out front. These SNOT style buildings look good and would be a perfect addition to any modern town set up. After all, your Lego Minifigures need to eat food too.
Lego builder Qian Yj has specialized in building Chinese themed Lego MOCs. One of their latest models is this “Lego Chinese Wind Architecture – Kuang Dian.” It is an amazing study of Chinese Architecture. The facade near perfect. Check out the details such as the trim around the roof, the red lanterns, the various seating arrangements, and the custom signage.
This Lego Restaurant is not a small building, and the interior is fully built. It looks like there are private dinning rooms, booths, a kitchen, and more all squeezed in. Using the 2×4 flat plates for detailing on the walls is a great idea.
This Lego Restaurant is actually based on a real life location. The restaurant is located around the Sanyuanqiao Station in Beijing. If you compare it to the Lego version, you will that almost every detail is represented. The scale is a bit off, but that is typical of Lego projects.
