History of LEGO Castle

I already had the concept of "little castles from different subthemes" last year, but I didn't have the time to build it. Not long ago, I realised that the Yellow Castle will be 40 years old in 2018.
I've put the two things together, and created a Lego Ideas project to commemorate this anniversary of the Castle theme.

The concept of this MOC is similar to the 4002016 set: recreate some of the iconic castles of the Lego Castle history in smaller size. I've chosen a castle set from each decade from the 1970s to the 2010s and created a little tower that resembles that set.

It was built in LDD and rendered in Bluerender. It was the first time I tried Bluerender, and I'm quite satisfied with it, but the texturing of the missing minifig and shield decals was pretty time consuming.

Neat idea! If this were a set, I would go right out and buy it!

I had never even heard of that train set before. Very interesting.

Me, too! What an awesome tribute to LEGO's greatest theme. You've really captured the feel of all the sets you represent here.

Did I mention you can help this MOC to become a set by supporting it on Lego Ideas...? :lol:
Just kidding. Thank you for your praising words, I'm glad you like it.

Nice comparison - I wonder where Lego castle will be in another 40 years!?
