the CyberCity in action

Newer Older

Pictures alone do not do this display justice, so I did my best here and still didn't cover everything.

This was a collaborative display presented at the Bricks by the Bay 2011 Lego convention held in Santa Clara on March 27th. Members from RoninLUG, PCHLUG, and elsewhere (at least 14 builders all together, and from as far off as Europe) combined forces for this cyberpunk near future alien ghetto city diorama. Minds were blown, faces were melted, trophies were won (Best Space Structure, Best in Show, and Public Choice).

    Well put together, not much was left out then Don! A beauty.

    An insane Sci-Fi layout, mixed with a tune by the amazing Chemical Brothers.
    Perfect. F*cking perfect!

    Excellent video, Don. This is just amazing.

    Pretty awesome. I notice that the track bends an awful lot on some of those slopes though.

    Best. Cyberpunk. Evar! And not likely to be equalled in a generation of LEGO MOCers.

    Yeah I don't know how this could ever be topped or even equalled. The build itself is one thing, but the lights on top of it and the sound, too?!? I mean, holy crap. That is phenomenal. I wish I'd been able to see it in person, too. That is just phenomenal!

    I love The Chemical Brothers, although, I love TCM best! I wish I had known about this collaboration. I would have gone all out!

    "Wow!" is just about all that can escape my brain. Impressive all around!

    I think Donny deserves a trophy for just properly documenting this thing.
    EPIC is not a strong enough word.

    This is the greatest LEGO thing I've ever seen.

    Another great year at Bricks by the Bay. Dane had a great time and I always enjoy seeing you all again. Definitely Cyber City was the best and rightfully acknowledged by all.

  12. Joel.Baker 49 months ago | reply

    Right with you; If this were to happen again next year, I would go contribute as well.

    Thanks for documenting it Don

    i see that kid doesnt understand your not supposed to touch the displays.

    this thing needs to tour around all the different lego stores.
    it has to be seen in person to absorb all the awesome details.
    it really is one of the best. congrats to all those who worked on this.
    its an honor to have my pic next to this in the pool.

    {Legohaulic} I'm going with the insanity plea.

    {x_scar_x} Yeah... about that touring thing. Y'know how zen sand painting gets blown away by the wind? Go with that!

    On behalf of RoninLUG and friends, Thank you all so much for the support and accolades. Part of the "EPIC amazingness" is that it all came together so haphazardly and quickly. And Fradel's local boys were like LEGO rock stars filling in so much depth of activity, helping me rewire and decorate while I dealt with tech issues. I fully expect to look at pictures or video of this next year and see something happening that I didn't notice. I wish I had trophies for Don for documentation, for Cole who got most of it to the show in relatively few pieces, and for Tommy who had to miss out on the live event but contributed so much in video.

    This thing is just so amazing... I wish I could've seen it IRL. :/

    Anyway, awesome work from everyone. Nice music too (what song is that btw?).

    ^Believe by the Chemical Brothers
    Also nice work on that credit block in the last frame Donny. You rock.

    Hey Don,

    Don't suppose you want to email me your marked up list of builders? Would make my life waaaay easier.

    I saw this at bricks by the bay, and I was shocked at how well it was put together!
