Duke Burger
Duke Nukem's very own fast food chain, Duke Burger.
About this creation
Come get some !

Those who saw my last MOC may have noticed the random Duke Nukem minifig I added at the end, with 'a taste for things to come' in the description... here's what all that was about.

Quite a while back I made a folder on my computer along the lines of 'lego to make' in which I'd placed two model ideas, with lots of reference photos for each. The first idea was a complete minifig-scale model of the Duke Burger level from the classic game Duke Nukem 3D, the second model being Lando Calrissian's ship, the Lady Luck, from Star Wars (also minifig scale, or near enough to it). The latter probably won't happen simply due to me not having a great deal of grey, and most of my grey being random technic bits and cogs - just nowhere near enough to make a large spaceship. The former I'd toyed around with the idea as I had a fair few parts to possibly make it. Thing is, the more I looked at it (playing the game, taking screenshots of every room inside and out) the more I realised it would also be quite unfeasible - the restaurant itself representing less than half of the level, and that's without taking into account the roads, pavements etc... also it would have been awkward as there was an underground level, so the whole model would have to be built up, and ground floor a few bricks high. Plus, I just don't have enough of the right kind of parts to make most of the underground level and other parts outside of the restaurant itself.

Fast forward to the about a week before I posted this. Me having 'always bet on Duke', keeping the faith, and guess what, the game has a release date, and it's june 10, just a few days. Having seen some screenshots, I noticed that Duke Burger is also going to be in the new game - though has a commpletely different design. That decided it. if I was going to make (the original) Duke Burger, I'd better get it don't before the new one comes out and renders mine obsolete. Also I thought it'd be cool to coincide posting a Duke Nukem MOC around about the time the game is coming out.
What of the level being too big to build? Well, I simply cut it down. I built just the main restaurant and (partly due to baseplates available, or lack of) decided to draw the line at the furthest-back rooms being the kitchen and toilets, and not do anything from the slaughterhouse/delivery room backwards (and downwards), just keeping the main, basic rooms of the restaurant.

So, here it is. Duke Burger. The restaurant that would put Hooters to shame if it actually existed (needless to say at this point, but all the staff are female). I took some photos of the outside (with the cool backdrop from the Lego Studios set) and of the inside. On the outside, you'll find the revolving 'D' logo signpost, the revolving Duke holding a burger, a palm tree, a drive-through menu, and of course the drive-through itself, for which I made a little car just for the fun of it. I cobbled together something supercar-like that ended up looking a cross between a Lamborghini Countach and a Ferrari Mythos for Duke.

On the inside, the first thing somebody will see is the 'D' logo on the wall, the seating room has six tables, carrying on forward there's the sauce and cutlery shelf, opposite the serving area, with cash register, soda pumps, menus, burger trays. To the left and right of here are exit doors to the outside, and rubbish bins on either side too. Behine the serving area is the cash register for the drive-through window, and behind this, the kitchen (rat included). Going right from the serving area, then left at the door will lead to some payphones on the right, and toilets ahead.

For those who are curious, I've uploaded all the screenshots I took of the level in-game, so you can see what I did make, and what I wasn't able to. Some colours have been swapped around (such as red for brown) simply due to me not having much brown and lots of red, for example. It seems to have uploaded them back-to-front, so the first pictures are what I couldn't- build, and the later ones show what I was able to copy.

Hail to the King, baby !

Quoting MortalSwordsman . Mmmm burgers my favourite. Maybe you could do free Lego toys with every kids meal :D. I love the figure holding the burger and the one over the door. Great details all over actually.
Thank you very much :) I've started work on another spaceship receently, and the very beginning of another potential car (that may or may not be made) so hopefully those two will be up before summer is over... though with plenty of other things to keep me busy I'm finding less time for lego than last year :(

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 c est parfait! parce que tu auras juste a me dire les scenarios! je vais les produires dans cybercity, ou la planete ALTA-5! que tu puisses construire ou pas, n empeche rien! il n as jamais ete question de poster quoi que ce soit! c est seulement de la REPRODUCTION!...COOP! etudie ALTA-5 comme il faut, j avoue que c est profond!!!! mais ca mene a des grandes choses, bonnes pour tout le monde!!!
Aaaah d'accord... dans ce cas, pas de souci, tant que tu veux bien faire toutes ces constructions, et que tu as les pièces. Quand aux histoires et scénarios faudrait que j'en invente lol... mais oui, si tu veux ajouter quoi qe ce soit de mes créations dans ta ville, même pas besoin de demander, j'ai pas de problème avec ça; au contraire je crois que ça ne fera qu'aggrandir ta ville et aider à réaliser le grand projet auquel tu as pensé :)

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 DAN THE MAN...who controls DUKE NUKE IT!!! ca t irais? ca serait vraiment a toi!!! ca te dirait de le voir foutre le bordel dans Cybercity...? tu me dis ou on commence...ok? essayes juste d etudier ALTA-5 un peu, dis moi ce que tu en penses sincerement! en tant qu ami?...j aimerais te donner un grand role! si tu veux...ou peut! dis ton vaisseau...il se rend jusqu a alta-5? ou bien duke l as nuke?...lol!
Yo, Merci pour lmes commentaires, et je trouve tes idées bien intéressants. Je comprends l'idée de démonter Cybercity, mais je trouve quand même dommage de le faire à 90% ... cela aurait été sympa de la voir fini avant de le voir détruit. L'idée de Alta-5 franchement je trouve bien. Si je comprends bien, c'est un peu comme Cybercity, mais avec plus d'histoires, et, quand possible, des coopérations avec d'autres créateurs? Une question- que veux-tu dire par 'paneliser'? l'utilisation des 'panels' de légo? (dont j'ai très peu.... et largement pas assez pour construire un bâtimnet de n'importe quelle taille) Pour répondre à ta question sur mon vaisseau BSE, une coopérations, ça je trouverai bien intéressant. Comme tu as remarqué j'aime bien rendre les vaisseaux plutôt jolis à l'extérieur, mais en gardant l'intérieur à l'échelle des mecs lego (même si, dans le cas du vaisseau en question, ces deux échelles sont bien différents... en réalité, à l'échelle des mecs lego elle serait bien plus grande à l'extérieur). Parcontre en bâtiment seuls j'ai moins d'expérience, et cela se voit en comparant mes vaisseaux à mes bâtiments. Quand aux véhicules, le problème c'est que je ne les construis qu'en grande échelle. Une coopération comme je dis serait intéressant, mais comment faire? Tu vis au canada, et moi en europe. 1/4 de l'année je suis chez moi en france, où se trouve ma collection de lego, et 3/4 de l'année je me caille en écosse pour l'université, où je fais plutôt du dessin, car je n'ai pas (et pas la place pour) mon lego là-bas. Et puis l'idée d'envoyer des constructions dans des colis, je me trouve plutôt contre... d'abord car à cette distance, avec des choses plutôt lourds, le prix serait fou (et je n'ai pas d'argent... tel est la vie d'un étudiant), et puis souvent les couriers ne font pas attention aux colis, et tout arriverait suremet endommagé. Virtuellement, cella serait surement possible, avec les logiciels de construction numérique, mais il faudrait que je me metts à m'y habituer à ce genre de chose, et puis certains techniques de construction ne seraient peut être pas possibles. Si tu as une meilleure idée, ça m'intéresse toujours de savoir :) - Dan

Good, but needs some smoothing around the edges. Otherwise, Great!
