Addams Family Mansion Modular by afol777

After my original 2016 LEGO Addams Family Mansion received such great IDEAS fan support (10,000 votes!), I have created a Modular version keeping under the 3,000 part IDEAS limit. Although some reduction in detail was inevitable as the original had over 7,000 parts, the Mansion remains in its full glory. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed building it!

From the 1964-66 TV sitcom “The Addams Family”, this is the Mansion and family! The original project was an “end of series” anniversary tribute to the last new episode aired on April 8, 1966 – 50 years earlier!

The Addams Family was a group of fictional characters created by American cartoonist Charles Addams that includes Morticia, Gomez, Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, Grandmama, Cousin It, Lurch and Thing. They lived in this Mansion at 001 Cemetery Lane.

Pirate Bay and The Office NBC Achieves 10 000 Supporters on LEGO Ideas

The two latest LEGO Ideas projects to reach 10 000 supporters is Pirate Bay and The Office NBC. The Pirate Bay was created by Bricky_Brick and still has 755 days left. Its only been a month since it was listed! The Office NBC was created by theoffice_lego and still has 366 days left for the creation to gather supporters. Congrats to both creators on achieving this! You can learn more about Pirate Bay and The Office NBC on the official LEGO Ideas site.

Pirate Bay

It is time to return to the classics and what better than this super bastion built on shipwrecks, with traps like the pendular anchor that warns unexpected visitors and the dog and the monkey guardian. The food is delicious in our tavern, many pirates only stop to eat here. In this small pirate town we find a small farm with pigs and chickens, lobsters crabs and fish, also delight this area. A Modular set that includes 7 minifigures and 1 monkey, 1 scorpion, 3 crabs, 3 hens, two pigs, 3 parrots, a shark and a dog.

The Office NBC

This LEGO Ideas project is based on the hit-comedy TV show The Office, which aired from 2005-2013. As I watched the show over and over again, I began to wonder what it would be like to recreate the actual film set in LEGO form. Back in the fall of 2015, I decided to create a new LDD file and just experiment with the design of it. I originally had no intent on actually purchasing the pieces to build it, let alone submit it to LEGO Ideas. Well, over two years later here we are. Countless hours spent designing and tweaking every little detail, along with placing special orders that would take weeks to arrive. I’m excited to finally get to share this with you, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
