Rick, Brian and Bill dropped off a new and improved space base at the Queens LEGO store (much) earlier this month.
Here’s what Rick says about the model:
“Gamma Outpost” is a re-design of an earlier LUG Showcase MOC. It shows how much can change in two years. With this new interpretation, the base was mostly re-built from the foundation up to fully landscape the space available. It was also an experiment in greyscale and shades of green. All other colors were omitted from the main diorama. It was a fun experiment and will hopefully be the first of several single color-themed displays.
Personally, I think the difference is striking, and I look forward to more of Rick’s experiments. I’m just disappointed I couldn’t be a part of this one.
This mosaic celebrates the 50th anniversary of one of the greatest rock bands ever — The Rolling Stones! Inspired by the cover to this book, this mosaic comprises lots of 1×1 round Lego transparent red, light blue and clear plates. As you can see, it’s at an angle — and that’s because it wouldn’t have fit inside the display case otherwise! Hopefully Mick, Keith, Ron or Charlie will stop by and see it!
Lots of trans-clear bricks went into this display, featuring renditions of a Christmas tree, a menorah for Hanukkah, and a Kwanzaa candelabra, and a Lego holiday set and accessory. All of this can be seen at the LEGO Store on the third floor of the Palisades Center mall in West Nyack through the end of December. Happy Holidays!
