One of our best garage sale finds lately was MOST of a horse stable set. Originally full of details, our Riding Stable (set 6379) has been largely completed using our own extra pieces. We were able to get a very nice setup despite missing some pieces.
Click on through to see how we've fit this partial set into Bricksburgh!
Once you get out of the bustling beachfront and race complex of the main level of Bricksburgh, the buildings begin to spread out a bit and the countryside beckons. The lower level of one table is full of suburbs with a quiet neighborhood street on one end and the Paradisa Rolling Acres Ranch (set #6419) on the other.
In the interests and long running tradition of "Throw-Back Thursday"-- which dates all the way back to 2011-- today's post features our town as it appeared back in its FIRST version.
Tyler and I were watching news coverage of a disaster somewhere (I forget where but it's possible these are from around the time of Hurricane Katrina) and we decided to act out a relief effort. Of course we only had ONE town, so the mission became one of airlifting supplies and rescue workers from the airport.
Upon their return from their operation, the town threw a "Welcome Home" parade for their heroes, followed by a community celebration.
Summer schedules are proving busier than we thought! Plus we're trying hard to launch our new blog www.TeslaPittsburgh.com (check it out!) and that's been diverting. However, we do have a new video to share-- just on YouTube today! Detailed pictures will post later, but until then-- see how many celebrities you can spot:
A fixture in any town is the hospital. Minifigs who fall ill or get injured can expect to find themselves on the doorstep of our town clinic. Like many of the structures in Bricksburgh, the hospital received quite an upgrade in location when we moved to the new house.
Even better than the location change, though, was the new driveway-- a much GRANDER entrance courtyard!
It seemed like a peaceful day in Bricksburgh. The sun was shining. People went to work. Tourists played on the beach. And the TechMan was out making his rounds repairing things. What no one knew was that he'd left his side project in the van while he was working. And the van got hot inside. And that triggered a cooling sensor on his project. And that project was an advanced robot.
