In the previous post about BrickCon 2013, we mentioned that some of the best history-related MOCs have little or nothing to do with warfare.
One of my personal favorites was this gorgeous display of the Paro Taktsang (aka “Tiger’s Nest Monastery”):
Another fantastically detailed series, this set of MOCs displays “old” Anaheim, California.
I don’t recall the official title of this MOC, but the scene reminds me of stories about Port Royal, Jamaica during the 16th and 17th Centuries.
And, for the heck of it, here’s a gratuitous shot of the humongous Rivendell MOC:
The Colonial Outpost is a great construction from The Brick Time Team. It caught my attention because of the elaborated techniques for building the water, the fine detail of the rocks and most important the micro-detail using round bricks on the walls.
Hi everyone. I have been out for some time but returned for a new season of historical posts :-)
I would like to open this new season in History Bricks with a MOC of one of my favorite builders – Derfel Cadarn. Just look at this princess and how beautiful she is with those incredible details. The whips are definitely my favorite building technique.
Great remake of the 6277 Imperial Trading Post built by NewRight. He had done a great job with lots of detail improvements. However, I must say that he forgot to build one storehouse with a crane at the top. Nevertheless the MOC is just awesome!!!
A German toy store published a set of pictures that appear to be a preview of the brand new LEGO sets of the Pirates of Caribbean theme.
They are very small pictures but is enough to preview some details. Hope LEGO don’t find them any soon. Nevertheless, here’s the gallery with the pictures :-)
Here’s the full list of Pirates of the Caribbean sets:
