Emmet's apartment from The LEGO Movie


Emmet's goodbye party

So this is it, 3 days to go, and no extension unfortunately :)

So still, time to make a big party

Benny, Unikitty, Wildstyle, even the Where are my pants guy is there.

Statue of Liberty, President Business, all there. Wait is that?

Yup it's Peter Venkman.

Apparantly Emmet's upstairs neighbour saw Vitrivius and called them

Of course after they arrived it wasn't a problem :) More guests to the party.

So they all ordered pizza :d

So, this project got me through the dark ages, upcoming is a real build on the complete apartment building soon! 

Thanks to everybody who supported this, it was a nice thing to do and got more support than I expected :)

There has been the question whether I will resubmit it, will see about that, first the apartment building needs to be completed! :)


Emmet's Apartment in LEGO Worlds!

So I heard about LEGO Worlds and was very curious. I got Steam early access and found out that LDD files can be imported in the game. Of course I was curious :)

All in all, it's a fun sandbox game to play so far, the apartment and building have a lot of missing parts, but hey, it's early access :) I'm glad they import at all!

It looks like a lot of functionality wrt orientation hasn't been implemented yet, but there is so much potential in this game. The LDD compatibility can make your dream city / moonbase / anything LEGO you can imagine come true.

Nice job, I like this game already!


Updated toilet

The design team of the LEGO movie received a bunch of modular buildings from LEGO which can be seen in the making of videos.

When I was browsing set instructions for these buildings, I found out that there is a toilet in the Pet Shop which also uses the Buoy as a toilet seat. This leads me to believe that it's the same one as in Emmet's Apartment so just wanted to add this in an update :)


The complete apartment

So it's been a while since I did a last update.

Supporter count doubled since I released all the parts! Thank you very much all :)

My goal at least is to get an official LEGO comment :) I doubt that this apartment will reach 10K.

So, here's another nice thing :) When I built the apartment, I timelapsed it:


Also, putting together all LXF files will be a tedious job, so here is the link to the complete apartment!

Part update 39 of 40 (Baseplate)

The foundation for Emmet's adventures.

What I did is replace a 1x6 black plate on the left and right with a 1x4 black plate and a 1x2 sand green plate, this prevents from having a black part visible.

Part update 38 of 40 (Main walls)

The moment where the apartment itself is finally done :) what remains is the basis and the outer wall :)

So, at first I used Spring Yellowish Green, but when later analyzing some shots, I got a better vision of the color itself (The LEGO Movie is raytraced and uses sub-surface light scattering, essentially this is the same as a piece of red paper in front of a white wall will leave a pink spot on the wall due to some photons bouncing off the red paper, against the white wall into your eye, but that's enough computer graphics and particle physics for today ;))

Anyhow, when I found the new color it took a while to get it into LDD since it supports that color, just not in the palette. It's color#6 and known as Light Green. Too bad this color is not available, but Sand Green is, and Sand Green is the same color just darker. But the 1x2 bricks with studs are not available. The 1x1 is, so that will mean some more 1x1 bricks =) Angular bricks also not available but they're out of view so it doesn't really matter. All poster tiles are white (can be seen in the making of movie I linked in an earlier update), but have prints (I haven't printed these decals yet, problem is I consider them to be too blurry), they all feature different decals so they can be replaced pretty easily for rendering with POVRay for instance. Kitchen tiles at the top should have been in the kitchen wall perhaps though.

As for accuracy terms, the right part is the most accurate since it's displayed from a top view in the movie. For the rest the studlocations are very accurate :D
