Lovely Bright Green Friends House

   These colors together are so lovely to me.  It takes me back to my childhood and a favorite outfit with green & pink stripes and bubblegum-pink cherries.
   This house built in Friends style setting along a street of other houses fitting of Heartlake City was created by AlfredD.

   This is apparently from a larger layout presented at LEGOWORLD 2012.  For more inspired houses, visit the entire folder on Brickshelf.


X-wing Friendly

   A fighter spaceship can be built out of Friends bricks, just as Melan-E has done.  Bricks are bricks in the hobby of LEGO construction toys.  As long as there is "clutch power" the creativity factor is infinite.  Color combination is about personal taste; the re-creation of a known vessel or structure remains the same in overall shape.
   Pink5 is the name she has given to her creation.  After viewing it, you can read the story behind the name and the chosen genre.

      Here is what she wrote on her photo set description:
   "This build in no way is to make the statement of 'Girls like Star Wars too! Wooo!'. This build is for the people out there who either have kids or don't and intentionally or not, dictate what kids should like or shouldn't. I'm not saying that everyone does, but some do and I deal with those people on a daily basis. Its the people who walk into the store and say 'Wheres the girl LEGO?' or 'Why doesn't LEGO make anything for girls?' and its not necessarily your fault. Subconsciously you say these things because someone taught you long ago that blue is for boys and pink is for girls. And hey, when a young girl comes running into our store and heads straight for the Friends line, I say awesome and I ask her what her favourite Friends character is and what her favourite set is. And its amazing.

    But its the other times when a young girl is desperately trying to show her parents how cool the Spiderman sets are and her dad/mom says 'Sweetheart, that stuff is for boys, look at the pink stuff over there' that this built was made for.

    This image is to allow those out there to see something in a different light, in this case a different colour, and open your mind up to the possibility that yes, your daughter can like Star Wars (or Batman or Ninja Turtles or whatever they want) and that is awesome and absolutely normal

May the Fourth be with you Friends

   The super prolific builder "monsterbrick" Matt Armstrong has blended Friends bricks into a creation of a familiar character.  This he calls "R2-QT-Pi" and when you see it you'll quickly recognize a resemblance.

   The new slope bricks from the City Park Cafe set used on the feet may be my favorite adaptation used in this design.
   This droid is part of his astromech for the pi series, which will be on display at LEGOLAND California for Star Wars Days June 15th and 16th 2013.  Here is a straight front view of this creation.  Here you can see a 'companion' version.


Modular LEGO Friends Cafe

   In some cities, you just have to build 'up' due to space.  MOCer Jotabeeeeeee did this and achieved transforming a LEGO Friends City Park Cafe into a City Modular with wonderful details, while maintaining recognizable features.  Any Heartlake City resident would easily see their favorite hang-out spot has been expanded.  The customized signage is particularly sweet!

   For a few more photo angles and to see more City Modulars, take a stroll through the set.


Mia's Magic Tricks starring Mini-Fig twin assistants

   Are you seeing double or triple?  Gianni Spigno creates a scene with Friends bricks and two classic minifigures.  Even though they're classic, they can still share Mia's hair pieces ;-)
