About this creation
The Hampton Roads Lego User Group (HARDLUG)conducted a public display on 7 June 2008, at the Virginia Beach Children's Museum in support of
the museums event entitled “Mi Casa es su Casa”. The HARDLUG display was a celebration of the Structural diversity of human dwellings in LEGO form.
HARDLUG founding members Paul Vastano and Valentina Neblitt listen and nod politely as newcomer Michael Rutherford tells them about what it was like to actually live on Mars…Paul is reaching for the Alarm button.
What’s this? Catwoman loses her front axel nut…Right behind Wane Manner? The Caped Crusader leaps into action: “Never fear Ma’am, I have an extra Bat Nut right here in my Bat utility belt”. This is typical of the action around the old cul-de-sac.
The front of Wane Manner. Oddly enough, pictures of this particular dwelling always come out with a 45 degree cant.
None of the inhabitants of the exclusive neighborhood were happy when the Martian Dust Pilgrim moved in and pressurized the cave at the entrance To the cul-de-sac. They all thought their property value would suffer.
An eagle eyed state building inspector spots and corrects a flaw that if left unchecked, could cost lives.
The following day, HARDLUG convenes a meeting in a chamber on the third floor of the same museum. Five straight hours of diagramming, building, demonstrating, trading, giving, selling, planning, discussing, advising, directing, and snacking. There's hard, and there's HARDLUG
Ever seen a guy about to get his bell rung?
The enigmatic Zack. An island of stoic restraint in a sea of boiling martial arts fury!
Hey buddy! The museum closes in five minutes! You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here!
i thought they were nice houses first...i did nt though that they were made by you! all classical builds, the black one seems real somehow...why did nt you instal windows in the rear? and why ryan implicates there should be igloos and exotic homes?
Fair enough Mike. I appreciate your outreach. I'm going to excuse myself out of rejoining that particular group because I do not have the parts to contribute to it effectively. My friends here know I have a pathetic and paltry assortment of fig parts. Too much investment in dinosaur bones. When I first saw the invite and went to the group page, I almost immediately clicked on the leave button, as a knee jerk, until I saw it was your group. I never thought I could contribute to it as intended, but was keen on answering your call. I'll just have to be on the watch for other things you are involved in, and make better targeting decisions. Sorry also about the lack of pants. I never really knew how vulgar I was until I came out of my LEGO dark ages. In my defense, I'll claim that my early MOCs were very innocent. A few months here had a corrosive effect though. Who would have thunk it?
Great event and a nice display. All of the buildings are well crafted. Perhaps some more stereotypical homes from around the world would have met the theme better?
Where is the Mexican Villa, Igloo, Classical Japanese house, etc.? The Martian Hovel is a pretty creative addition. And , what could speak of diversity better than having your own caped crusader on the block!
Five smiley's for just posting SOMETHING here on MOCpages. Youll get extra credit, too for the whole "Bat nuts" thing if it works as a pick-up line next Friday night! (I hear chicks really dig guys that are in to Batman)
