A modular building block I made about a week or so ago. I had immense fun making this, it's my biggest build in a while with a baseplate of 36X36.
My former title for this was "Brickington Modular Buildings" but that seemed kind of....bland..so I changed it.
About this creation
If you didn't read the intro, I built this modular building block about a week ago on a 36x36 baseplate. It took me about four days to complete. Here's a head-on shot. Left to right: The Two Stone Bakery, bottom: The Topic is Hot, middle: apartment, top: a small balcony with a bathroom, and roof: a rooftop garden. And the last building is a tower of three very cheap apartment rooms.
A shot from the right side down the street.
And a shot from the left side down the street.
A top shot.
And a close up front shot, I couldn't get a reasonable picture without getting my camera in the reflection.
And lastly a shot of the upper floors of the buildings.
Now, down to the details. Here's SigRyan locking up his bike (sorry Ryan, I'm not sure whether you like to bike or not)
This is the tree, and I forgot to say, I modeled this slightly after a street in a city I live near, the buildings aren't the same, but it has the same characteristics.
Oh dear..Looks like Phipson's lost his marbles again...
What are these two hooligans doing to the wall??
Looks like Kelso and Shifu decided to goof off while Phipson was busy searching..
All right, this is the building furthest to the right, they all separate from the base and all the floors separate as well.
This is the front, with some nice bricks.
And the back. You can see the stairs leading up the second floor as well as a little lamp I installed.
This is the first story. I didn't plan quite perfectly, and the thing turned out being a little small (maybe why it doesn't cost much to rent?) , so I didn't fit much furniture in it.
This is the front of the second story.
And here's the inside, the stairs turned out a might steep...
Here's the front of the very top story.
And the back of the top floor, with a tiny window facing out towards the alley.
The inside, with a tiny bed right by the front windows.
Ok, onto the next buildings, consisting of The Topic is Hot and a small apartment room, a bathroom and a balcony, AND a rooftop garden with some pretty flowers.
The front of The Topic is Hot (yes, copied after "Hot Topic")
A mannequin in the window.
Here's the interior. I've never actually been in a store like this, so I wasn't sure what I should put in there. It turned out looking like a blood-stained bear cave with Bones scattered across the floor (haha, get what I did?), but oh well.
There's Mister Bones at the register ready to cash your money.
And it looks like Leda Face is shopping for some new clothes she can use while weilding her chainsaw, the rest of them had bloodstains on them....poor pussy cat...
I was happy with how this guitar turned out, although it seemed more miniland scale than minifig.
The shirt and pants racks, using wheels really helped out!
The cashier/register thing gate opens up. :)
Here's the second floor, I made a mistake here, can you find it? I only noticed it after I finished the whole thing.
Here's the inside of the apartment room, as You can see, the occupant is just moving in.
Here's some of the furniture I made. I couch, a chair, a lamp, and a few boxes of...LEGO!!!
Shortly after taking that picture, my cat jumped in and started to attack the lamp.
On to the third floor of the middle building!!!
Here's the bathroom including...
And a sink!
Uh oh Yuri, looks like you might want to clean up a bit before stepping out again. Oh and Yuri, if you see this, I want to ask a question: Since I don't have the torso your sigfig had, is this a good alternative?
Here's the rooftop garden.
Look's like Evil SigfigAlex is planning more evil on the town of Brickington...maybe he's the one who hid Phipson's marbles...
Here's the LAST building, the Two stone Bakery.
Here's the inside
I used windshields for the pastry glasses. What customers love so much about the Two Stone Bakery is not only their amazing pastries, but how quick and easy it is. As you step in, you pick out the pastries you want, but head straight to the register and check out. Only one customer is allowed in the shop at a time. This is only an outpost, the real factory is located somewhere else.
The cashier seems to be my dad...
Here I am walking out with a tasty pastry!
Here's all the sigfigs I included. If I missed out on anyone, I'd like to make it! Feel free to post a link to your sigfig in a comment!
Well, this was a really long presentation, and a big creation, thanks for hanging in there! Hope you liked this!
The whole thing is splendid! Considering you've never been to Hot Topic, you got the atmosphere right (at least with the outside). If you Google images of the store you'll find most have a strange circular enterance. Also, the clothers are on shelves. Anyways, keep up the great building. Commenting on any of my stuff would be HIGHLY appreaciated. --Garand
This is amazing I love all the details in the buildings!
I like it

Odd thing is, I've looked at this dozens of times but never rated it! There are so many fantastic techniques! The windshields in the bakery are perfect! My favorite part is actually the rooftop garden and tree, I'm a sucker for foliage. Overall, I think it's your best creation here!
As a matter of fact, I DO enjoy biking! Thanks a lot! I'll have to feature you in one of my creations sometime in the future. Next week Wednesday is when my family, my mothers friend, and I leave for Florida, so I'll be taking Sigfiggy Ryan along with me! Great work. ~Ryan
