Lego Friends Corner, A Downtown Bakery and Pastry Shop

Hartinih Liauw's Lego Friends Corner

What happens when you combine the Lego Friends Downtown Bakery (41006) with the famous Lego Cafe Corner (10182)? You get a Lego Friends Corner. The ground floor hosts an extremely popular bakery and pastry shop. Up to the second floor is a hip pet hair salon, where all the super cute dogs and cats go to get groomed. Then on to the rooftop is an outdoor area and garden for your pets. Which includes a tiny birdhouse, a dog bath, water fountain, and a peaceful garden. This modular style building also includes bicycle parking and a large outdoor patio.

The Corner proves to be so popular that a few special guests are visiting, and enjoying their bakery treats. Including Iron Man!

A Giant Lego Netto Scottie Dog

Bright Bricks's Lego Netto Scottie Dog

If you happen to live in Europe you may have seen this giant Lego Netto Scottie Dog helping out at your local Netto supermarket. This giant yellow Lego dog was created by Bright Bricks and is about 2m tall, 2m long and 80cm wide. Most interesting is seeing the behind the scenes photos. It looks like the Scottie Dog is hollow. Supported with a lattice work of Lego beams. It is also cool to see a digital model being used as a guide for the real model. The Bright Bricks studio looks like any Lego fans dream.

The Lego Wizard of Oz, Follow the Lego Brick Road

Siercon and Coral, Lego Wizard Of Oz, Follow the Lego Brick Road

Siercon and Coral have created a Wizard of Oz Lego scene titled: Follow the Lego Brick Road. The project is part of an Iron Builder competition with Legohaulic (Tyler) where the yellow rounded 1×2 slope must be creatively used. You can spot them in the Yellow Brick Road, the hot air balloon, and the sun. This is an interesting MOC, as it is using a mosaic background and forced perspective to create something similar to a painting. The end result is great. The Lego Wizard of Oz is quickly becoming a popular theme…

Follow the Yellow Slope Road, a Wizard of Oz Lego MOC by Legohaulic (Tyler)

Tyler's Wizard Of Oz Lego, Follow the Yellow Slope Road

Lego and the Wizard of Oz have seen some great builds before (especially the recent project by VirtuaLUG). The fantastic setting and great characters are a perfect fit for Lego. This vignette, created by Legohaulic (Tyler), is titled: Follow the Yellow Slope Road. The project is part of an Iron Builder challenge to incorporate the yellow 1×2 curved slope into a project. The results here are marvelous. The use of the curved Lego pieces in the background make for a great forced perspective, which gives the illusion that the build is larger then it really is. Dorothy Gale, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, and Toto look great.

This Toto might be my favorite Lego dog ever built.

Happy Lego Lunar New Year

ryouta22's Lego Happy Lunar New Year

Happy Lunar New Year. The year of the Horse is ready to begin. Flickr user Ryoutachan22 posted this super cute collection of the 12 Zodiac signs. Believe it or not, these were built by a 7 year old. Which, puts my own building skills to shame. These cute animals are a great example of how much variety you can achieve with only one shape (sphere).

Can you can match up the Rat, Cow, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Bird, Dog, and Boar with their Lego representation?
