Not a contest, but I issue the challenge.
Join to comment
Hey, everyone. I had a thought as I was taking apart the Orion and sobbing into my sleeve. I decided that I wanted to try something different than a ship this time, but I wanted to continue in the micro scale because, (thanks a lot, David), I'm pretty much addicted to that style. One thing that I have not seen much of is science fiction cityscapes. I see several "real world" cityscapes, but nothing...not of this world. It's what I'm working on now and I would like to see if that idea interests anyone else. Like I said, not a contest, just a challenge, but build a science fiction city. No rules, no color requirements, no size requirements, no deadline, (I don't think I could meet a deadline anyway), just have fun and let's see what we can come up with.

You're right, not too many. I built the Caprica City waterfront, although not that different from a city on Earth, it's still alien.

Excellent idea Tim, I'd be really up for the challenge. I've been meaning to revisit my red Martian landscape, and this could be just the incentive I need.

Well, I made stab at this, and I think for my first attempt at micro-scale architecture this isn't bad.

It's more than not bad, David. So many nice elements in that MOC, it's hard to point them all out. The hint of landscape was a nice touch and I like how you used so many of your bricks in the upside down position. I see several different effective applications of SNOT as well.

The reason that I wanted to build a sci-fi city was to break out of my normal style which is basically, (with the exception of Dee-Derp and the Exterminator), space, sci-fi, futuristic, whatever you want to call it, militaristic vehicles. This is a much more peaceful approach to space and forces me to be a little more artistic. I am currently well into this project and it is the most fun I've had yet. Thanks for partaking in this little LEGO excursion of mine, your MOC is exactly what I was hoping somebody would join in with. By the way, did you see the link that El Barto added to this thread? If not, check it out. Really awesome space city.

Thanks Tim, very kind of you to say. I always think of Lego as non-violent. Certainly Classic Space should be exploration rather than military focused, and this is something I try to stay true to - sham my astronauts often face giant red beasties ;). I saw El Barto's city, it's amazing.
