Walls
All in all it's just another brick in the wall
About this creation
I like building walls. (The amateur psychoanalysts among you can make of that what you will.) When I feel like building but have no set ideas in mind, I often experiment with wall-building techniques. Sometimes I even end up with something that could make its way into a future MOC. This was all Canary Plaza was -- I had a random wall laying around, and a random floor, and you can see the rest.

During BrickCon a horde of us AFOLs descended on the local Lego Store and pillaged the Pick-a-Brick. I got a lot of odd pieces that wouldn't sort into my overflowing bins when I got them home, so they sat on my coffee table for days in their PaB cups. One day I started making some walls with those pieces until I could figure out where I was going to put them, and ended up with several wall segments.

Usually when I build a little test wall, I take a picture or two just to remind myself how it goes in case I want to incorporate it into a future MOC, and then I dismantle it. For some reason this time I wanted to see how one of them looked in action, so I added a floor and some figs. Once I started that, I couldn't seem to stop.

So enjoy these little scenes, for what they're worth...


"I feel at home here."

The wonders of Pick-a-Brick in action. When I poured out the cup, I thought, "Why did I grab so many of these little white radar dishes again?"




"Get him!"

If I thought I'd gotten too many white dishes, it was nothing compared to the number of dark red round 1x1 plates I ended up with. You don't want to pay for more air in your PaB cup than absolutely necessary -- I used these little guys to fill up the nooks and crannies.


"Hey honey, lookin' for a good time?"

Clear 2x2 round bricks -- more Pick-a-Brick goodness.





WILL WORK FOR XHLACG

No Pick-a-Brick pieces here, but I did manage to use that stupid Watto minifig. He'll probably never be used again.




Mr. Black and Friend

His friend is a black owl, in case you can't tell. Why do I insist on building in black?




Out of the Loop

If you need an explanation for this, see The Chronos Project.





Shady deal

The first Pick-a-Brick wall I made. More dark red 1x1 round plates, on black headlight bricks. You can never have too many headlight bricks. I just wish they'd had a few more colors available at the time.




Space Ninjas!

My Space Ninjas are getting quite impatient with me dragging my feet on finishing their new battleground. Thought I'd throw them a bone here.





"Hey! Teacher! Leave those kids alone!"

Next time I'll have a real MOC, I promise.

Now all you need to do is grab some hammers, put them in front of the wall, and BAM, the creation would be better than it already is(and its pretty good for just a bunch of walls!)

Best trade of your life, right Shannon? =)

... Or you could have dropped the fig of the highest point in Seatle and then, without emotion, walk back into the building, to silence any witnesses.

Watto wasn't doing me much good, so I traded him to Lee Jones when we met at BrickCon08. I got 150 old light gray 2x4 bricks and the custom Bishop of Coleoidea minifig for him. I've already gotten more use out of them than I ever would have with Watto.

Ha! These are great! I agree with your doppelganger...this is a great idea for a theme. A simple premise that anyone could try, but no end to the styles, colors, and techniques you could use. I'm not usually that colorful of a guy, but for some reason, I like "Out of the Loop." Again, nice idea here Shannon...now stop building walls and get back to work on that book! ;-P

Very nice walls! Usually I'm too impatient and leave walls out of an MOC, but these are fantastic! Keep it up!

Some great ideas, Shannon! The rest of us could learn a lot from you. But, then again...we don't need no education.

They are all nice, but I like "The Wall" the best - it clean and simple. Lee.

I now might know what to do with my cup of dark red round plates...it looks really neat.
