Modular Castles! is a project on LEGO CUUSOO created by BrickonStark on April 5th, 2013. Though all the original idea images were done with LEGO Digital Designer, some pictures featuring a castle built out of LEGO bricks were added later.

This message was written by the creator of the project. Do not modify the message in any way.

Given the success of Lego LOTR and The Hobbit, I think Lego Modular Castles would have tons of potential as a new Lego theme.

This Modular Castles theme consists of various iconic castles, both real and fictional, from a variety of different locations and fantasies, in detailed Lego form.

For example, castles such as Alnwick castle and Windsor castle, and castles from medieval fantasy TV series' and films would all make great Lego sets.

The castles would be much larger and more detailed than the current castle sets. Also, this theme would focus more on the castles themselves, rather than the battles and minifigs.

I recently designed this Lego model of a medieval castle from a popular HBO television series. This could possibly be a UCS set for Lego Castles.

Here is a very basic version of the model, done in LDD:

Modcastle2

We have now built a physical Lego model of this castle.


Some good features of the castle are:

- Easy-access cages to store messenger birds

- Hinged roofs, can be opened to allow for easier access and playability

- Built in easy to assemble to sections

- Sections can be moved to different locations to create a different castle layout

- Stairs to upper sections

This is only one initial design, but there are many other castles and locations which would look fantastic in Lego form - the possibilities are endless!

Thanks for looking and please support our project to make Lego Modular Castles happen!
