My Modular Town Hall

For today, I’ve engaged the services of Pete, my town photographer to help with the photo taking process:

Yup, that’s Pete, with his latest SLR in the pic above.  So where do we start? Ah… we spot a town map and that gives us a clue about where we are headed to next:

Yep, it’s the Lego Town Hall and heading right up the stairs we spot the receptionist… oh, isn’t she a vision of loveliness…:

 

To our left, the waiting area has seats with the latest trend in indoor landscaping – the asian bamboo.  To our right, it’s the Mayor’s office – an overhead shot shows the key to the city gleaming above the Mayor’s desk.

Another overhead shot shows the layout of the 1st floor. Oh shall go up the stairs and have a look at the 2nd floor?

Ah, we are in luck, a Lego town wedding is in progress! And so that’s where the Mayor & Pete is, officiating the wedding and taking shots of all the special moments respectively.

In the pic of the wedding guests we have… oh dear! It’s the groom’s upset ex-girlfriend in the last row. Hope she’s not here to cause a scene!

Another over head shot to show the 2nd floor layout:

The newly weds proceed on to the Town Hall garden and front steps for some happy shots:

I know, the most important shots! Front and Back views below.

The Lego flag is flying high above the Hall and the golden statue (yanked from the Golden minifig key chain) is that of Sir Archibald Goldiness, the first mayor of this town.

This modification of the town hall from the Town Plan set (10184) took 3 sets, and I still ran out of bricks. So you may have already noticed the liberal use of black bricks for inner and side walls. 

The lack of bricks also explains the used of trans clear panels for the 1st floor, although the concept of opening up the reception area to the garden view wouldn’t be too bad in real life I think?

That’s all, hope you enjoyed the little tour!

    Lovely and creative! MOC with a storyline. Wonder where you got the extra pieces to MOC this building – is it from Town Plan set?

    Anyway, can you blog more about your haul and savings you got from the recent LEGO sale at US (United Square heheh). Didnt manage to go there and want to find out what great deals I missed. ::(

    Hedgehog & Anon:
    – Thanks for the nice comments!

    BT:
    – Pieces mainly from 3 sets of Town Plan, and loads of piece parts & bricks from brick boxes, S@H PAB, bricklink…
    – Huh, better not post. Wait people not happy that I blog about my haul… and they mis-interpret as gloating etc. U shd read the posts on local forums… while I’m happy abt my haul I’m conscious that loads of ppl are unhappy abt what happened. But then no pain no gain? I know the AFOL who got the only Imperial Flagship was there overnight… (and I’m very happy for him that he got the set he really wanted). The rest in the 1st 50 in the q mostly took leave/skip school just to make the sale. So I think those who strolled in at 1-2 pm shouldn’t expect too much… it’s a sale, haven’t they been to one? Even Zara sale also have ppl waiting outside the store before it opens. Arghh… totally off-topic. So yeah, enough on it.

      2 sets from when it was widely available in Singapore back in 2008?
      1 used set from a former AFOL who wanted to ‘retire’.
      Haven’t seen any shops with the Town Plan since the last set was sold from Simply Toys Plaza Sing.
