With more 20 baseplates laid on this gigantic castle, it is truly magnificent to view what is once a thing in the past to be seen as now. Watch this breathtaking creation done by LEGO Ambassador, Matija Grguric of this truly Medieval Castle Today. Do note that this creation will also be display in LEGO World Kopenhagen this year.
… or just a love of LEGO and history? Eurobricks Pirates Regulator Erdbeereis (Philip Stark), born in Karlsruhe, Germany, builds this microscale rendition of the Karlsruher Schloss. The clever use of 2×2 black dome pieces to construct the three towers of the palace really stand out and make it instantly recognizable to those who know the palace.
And although not particularly LEGO Town-related, be sure to also check out Philip’s almost life-size version of a Northern Cardinal, a bird which can be found in the east of his current home country, the U.S.
For the classic-castle.com Time Twisters Contest, Dutch AFOL Erik ‘eti’ Smit builds a medieval version of a true town classic, 1620 Chocomel Factory. Because chocolate milk wasn’t produced yet in the Middle Ages, eti turned it, more appropriately, into a brewery, on which he makes very good use of Minitalia windows. All the other essential elements in the classic town original have been ‘castlified’ as well: the street light has been replaced by a boy holding a torch, the little truck is now an ox cart, and a knight instead of a business man is roaming the streets.
Eurobricks newcomer sonicstarlight ‘modularizes’ the legendary Medieval Market Village. The exterior certainly maintains the look of the orginal Lego set with the tudor style walls and the red and blue awnings of the ground floor bar. Even the rooster included in the set gets a new job as a weather vane. The interior includes some very nice and original elements like a bar, a dartboard, a jukebox, and a foosball table. Leave all your comments in the Eurobricks Town forum.
Imagine yourself staying in a three-story medieval looking hotel, what will you expect to see? Well, you will naturally spot a hotel lobby with a receptionist sitting at the counter taking care of the guests’ lodgings at the ground floor. You will take a lift up to the second floor, where you will be staying in one of the cozy guest rooms. Then you can go for a dip at the top floor where there is an indoor swimming pool for you to relax.
This nice medieval Castle Hotel is created by Brickshelf member, orkyd. Check out the rest of the gallery for some detailed images.
No matter where you live, most people are familiar with Disney Land and/or Disney World, and the iconic Sleeping Beauty Castle that stands proudly in the center of the parks. Whether or not you are a Disney fan, you can certainly appreciate the grand castle being constructed out of Lego. Lego fan Grrandram creates a magnificent rendition of the castle set within the beauty of a lake of Lego. The details of this fabulous creation are too many to mention, but the colors chosen and outstanding design seem to bring this castle to life and capture the magic of Disney.
Alone in the arid heat of Death Valley stands a castle, a desolate castle in the middle of nowhere. The castle is known as Scotty’s Castle, a 32,000 square foot Spanish-style villa built in 1927. Join the Phantom Rider as he takes a tour within the walls of the mysterious castle. You may even find the ghost of Ol’ Scotty himself, or perhaps Albert Johnson, the actual builder of the castle within the chambers that lie within…
Now with new haunting Ghost images!
Okay. It’s not Classic Town, or even City for that matter, but it is Wild West Town; or should I say Weird West. Over the last two months, I’ve been re-editing images of all my Grave Stone creations using a much better photo editing program, as well as new hints and tricks. The result has been 18 new images of the haunting TOWN of Grave Stone, as part of a Return to Grave Stone. One new creation has been shared on Eurobricks (EB) entitled Grimwell Manor, my latest addition to the Grave Stone collection that blends Castle with Wild West. I invite you to check out the ghostly creation and the legend of the manor in the History & Adventure forum of EB.
TheBrickster, how did you discover the secret location of the Imperial Regalia of Japan which is also known as the “Three Sacred Treasures of Japan”? Is this a dream? We are actually inside the Tokyo Imperial Palace where one of these sacred treasures resides. TheBrickster, I have to give you thumbs up for this feat of yours. You sure have wide connections even in the oriental hemisphere.
Let me explain. These jewels are actually one single item that forms the rare necklace known as the “Yasakani no magatama”. This necklace stands for benevolence, and is one of the three treasures used in the ceremony of imperial ascension. I remembered something interesting about this section. It was rumored that this section of the building is filled with many dangerous bobby traps and guards to deter thieves and ninja from stealing it and the talented builder never leave its name in the books of history, except leaving this weird initials “T.B”. I wonder what it supposed to represents.
TheBrickster, I am getting the shivering feeling of that black wall over there. It feels like as if there is someone standing at that wall hiding in the shadows. Shall we move on and get out of here?
TheBrickster, come over here quickly. We have arrived in Himeji right on schedule. Look at the facade of this old Japanese Castle which has exists for many hundred of years withstanding the test of time. This castle was built by the Master Carpenter of Japan who is known as 007. He was famous for building Japanese ancient oriental architecture during that period.
Most of us might find the White Egret Castle similar to the famous Himeji Castle. In fact, rumors have spoken and foretold that the Master Carpenter was actually inspired by the Himeji Castle elegant majestic design and vowed to build one for the mighty Shogun Tokugawa whom was even more powerful that the existing emperor during the Edo period of Japan.
Look at those menacing fearsome guards standing at the front of its entrance. Do we have to show our tickets in order to get inside? I think we should use the balloon and hop into the back of their courtyard without them detecting.
