The long overdue eighth instalment in the development of the City of Legoland.
About this creation


Around five years have passed since I think I commented on MOCpages that I would be posting an update in a few weeks' time. Well, as any parent will tell you, timelines warp a little when children come on the scene! Two beautiful (and similarly Lego-obsessed) children and a change of house later, I have eventually gotten around to posting an update. The new city still features some of the old buildings, but there have been significant changes. Construction has continued over the past few years, just not the photography! In our new home, the city has come in from the garage and takes up one side of the "play room". This created the challenge of compressing the city into a smaller space, but I think that this has resulted in a more densely packed and hopefully more interesting layout. One casualty of the reduced space was the port area and so, while the rest of the world worries about rising sea levels, in Legoland the entire waterfront has disappeared. The layout is still based largely on three city blocks, with the Eiffel Tower in the middle block. However, the new layout sees the addition of buildings on the far side of the street at the rear. The block to the left houses the City Hall, Fire Station and Police Headquarters, the the Cafe Corner and Green Grocer sets around the corner. There is a more modern annexe to the Police Headquarters facing the street at the rear. There are also some small markets behind the City Hall.











On the opposite side of the street behind the front left block you will find a produce markets and then the Pet Store set and a cafe, bank and scooter shop, all with apartments above. The markets were inspired by Gabriel Thomson's interpretation of the Victoria Markets in Melbourne. A cobble-stoned alleyway runs along the rear of these buildings.























As you move across the the middle block, you will observe the hustle and bustle of central Legoland, with minifig citizens queuing at the flower stand, taking a leisurely stroll in the shadows of the miniaturised Eiffel Tower, listening to the open-air performance of a heavy-plastic band, politely tolerating the buskers, or waiting to catch a tram. Behind the tower, a narrow one-way street runs in front of a small block that houses a bicyle shop and modified Market Street and Department Store sets. Behind the bicyle shop is an Italian restaurant and a Subway diner. On the opposite side the block, around the corner from the departmenr store is the Post Office. These buildings are all serviced by a narrow, gated alleyway.

























Opposite the Post Office at the rear of the right hand block, is a 7-Eleven, with nightclub above and a garage. Over the road, towards the front of this block is the Royal Legoland Hospital, with its historic main building and non-descript modern addition to the front.















Coming full circle back around the front of the layout, you pass the train station that sits in front of the Eiffel Tower. There are also many new vehicles that you might be able to spot dotted around the streets of Legoland.

WOW, that is totally amazing! My brother and I were gobsmacked at how much detail and time you have put into your city. It has given us some great ideas! Keep on building!

How did you do the custom stickers? I know you can print out a decal on a piece of paper, put some tape or glue on the back and slap it on a MOC, but these look professional!

What a fantastic city! I loved checking out your previous versions and seeing how you have progressed your style with the inclusion of the modular buildings and developed that style with your own creations! It looks like a true labour of love, hope we can see more frequent updates too! The 7 eleven with the nightclub over the top is a stand out for me!

Wow, this city is an eyecatcher with some really cool custom built buildings. The city is full of life in every corner and great detailed. Love it. The hospital and the modern police station are really cool and my favorites but every building of your city is great.
