Jungle Life

These dudes from City sub-theme Jungle Explorers (sets 60170 & 60156) seem super pleased to find this big plant in the jungle.



Alternate MOCs

When you are looking at larger sets, is common to be able to find alternate builds created by fans – MOCs (My Own Creation). It’s always interesting to see how others have addressed the design challenge of creating a new model from a limited set of parts. I received 60183 “Heavy Cargo Transport” as a gift, and at 310 parts it’s a likely candidate for having a couple of good MOC’s.

60183 is an enjoyable enough build and is quite playable. With so many wheels, it’s going to lend itself to vehicle MOCs.

The first one I turned up on Rebrickable was from “Keep On Bricking” and is a slicker looking big rig pulling a float that’s not quite in minifig scale.

Some MOC creators provide instructions as PDF’s similar to the official LEGO instructions, others provide the LDX files (Lego CAD files). Keep On Bricking provides his as videos captured from inside the a CAD tool (I assume LEGO Digital Designer).
