This Lego street racing scene, called “Street racers’ haunt” is created by Faber Mandragore. Originally built to be displayed at Model Expo Italy, which was canceled this year. There is a lot going on in this scene. Two hot rods are facing off for an illegal drag race. Although the main focus of the build, the background is impressive on its own. A full rural gas station, some of the woods out back, and a huge crowd who have come to see the show. The two speedsters in the front almost look like they are the same model, but after market upgrades have changed their appearance. The grey racer looks like they have the bigger engine, but can they win the street race? In the back are a bunch of Minifigures getting ready for their turn to race, a bunch of betting is going on behind the scenes, and you can even spot a photographer. The gas station has a brick built sign, and they exclusivly sell the classic Octan gasoline. A few stand out details include the power/phone poles, the street light, and the little red arrow showing you where to go.
Can you see what I see? …A frightened cat on a window sill… This little village street is hiding a lot of secrets. “On a scary scary street” is a Lego MOC created by Caleb Saw. In the picture book “Can You See What I See?: On a Scary Scary Night” there are incredibly detailed images with hidden puzzles centered around a spooky story. The scary street Lego MOC is an extremely accurate recreation of one of those pages. A lot of time and thought has gone into preserving the hidden objects. This Lego scene has even recreated the lighting from the original. The buildings and street are lit up with a bunch of warm LEDs. This gives the impression of a recently abandoned street. There are a lot of really well done details here, the brick built road, the multiple street signs, the variety of window designs, and ominous dark cave. Even the digitally added sky and moon match the book.
“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.
