Hello, you may have seen hundreds of this MDO of set 76108 but here is mine, after buying another set without M inifigures from Brickling I settled for this desing so far (need to add a 90° wall to Strange section and some ladders outside plus some walkways between floors and a work in the garden), here is my WIP (work in progress): 
 The minifigures I have populated with characters like: Chell from Portal in the third floor and Bruce Banner from Avengers in the lab.

    Banner and Chell plus Strange, I more than welcome feedback and I am glad you liked this MOD.

    Nice combo of two copies of the set. Although I can't tell if you actually live underwater, or if you merely took the photos through a glass of water.

    My camera isn't the best sometimes, it is almost as if a gremlin sabotaged it. Any tips on how to line the set with 1x4 with almost no top studs?

    Use 1x4 tiles, with 1x3, 1x2 and 1x1 tiles where needed to fill gaps.

    Thanks for the tips, do you like the backside garden? I though of a place where wizards (and scientists) went to test their spells with a sand garden and a pond with a small fountain, there will be a wall 2x5 high and on the places were you see that red 1x4 brick I plan to place some fences.

    I usually shave my backside garden, but to each his own ;)

    All jokes aside, I like it. I want to do the same with mine and I tried, but I gave up. I am looking forward to seeing it when it's done...and with better photographs :)

    I need to stop checking this forum while at work. My coworkers must think I'm insane constantly busting out laughing spontaneously.

    Yep, still getting paid. One day when I had the door propped open to move some furniture, a random guy came in, looking for the mail room- which is across the hall and down a bit. He said a sign directed him to my room. The sign next to my door says Building storage. I still haven't found a sign anywhere that could be misconstrued to refer to my room as the mail room.

    I am the only one that's immensely curious what job requires a person to stay alone in the basement with nothing but some noisy machines all day?!

    I do office furniture. Mainly, I set up conference rooms each day, and fix/move office furniture, but I have a lot of down time in between, so I hide in my cubicle in the storeroom so no one sees me doing nothing.

    It is not clear, do you mean you have a lot going on with this build or a lot of backside that needs constant shaving? Photos not required if the latter.

    Lost of LEGO projects and other things to do, like the backyard garden.
    Edit: I also need a lot of pieces.

    Nice work to double it up!  I’m impressed with #76108.  It scales very well as a large complete building, much closer to the modulars than a ‘city’ style building.  Even moreso than the last Marvel 3-story, #76038.

    Probably better scaled to city sets lol.  Nice tower, nice set, but I’m kinda waiting on the UCS version to go with the modulars :D

    Nice job doubling yours, LEGO missed on a big opportunity to sell each section apart but in a complete way (with stairs and an opening for each section). 
  • M1J0EM1J0E Calgary, ABMember Posts: 394
    ^ I wonder if #76108 wasn’t done as a bit of an experiment for size/price to see just how far they could push the marvel theme, or themes other than creator expert at least, into AFOL type sets.  I didn’t double mine, it’s built as a single set according to the instructions, yet scales well with PR, moreso than the earlier avengers tower even.  LEGO must be comparing sales through various outlets of the sanctorum, and the helicarrier, and the hulk buster, to see what more might be possible.  I really wouldn’t be surprised to see a UCS avengers tower done on a 32x32 baseplate akin to a modular, or ninjago.  Or maybe that’s just what I want to purchase! :D

    I can do without the Acengers Tower Modular personally, but yes I want more complete buildings from differemt lines (Star Wars, Marvel, Overwatch, etc) so as to complement my Sci Fy City.
  • M1J0EM1J0E Calgary, ABMember Posts: 394
    ^ I think they have a lot of room to explore with complete buildings in different themes other than creator.  Given how far they’re working creator 3-in-1 under creator expert, they must have realized there’s a market in other themes as well for more complete buildings.  I don’t know much about Star Wars & haven’t checked out overwatch, but I do follow the marvel theme more.

    So as an example surely they must be considering sales of last year’s #76108 with this years #76131.  The sanctorum as seen is a full complete building.  Whereas the compound is more a city styled building, smaller scale, no back.  But more of a play set with additional vehicles & characters.  At a price $10 more.  All these factors have to weigh in.  How did #78031 do being a complete build styled as vintage town, given the relative success (or lack of) of the movie?  I’d be interesting to know how the analysis is done & how the decisions are made.  

    Surely the sales & expanding success has to bring forth more complete buildings in all themes.  I guess all I can do now is go & buy more that I like & hope that translates into more that I want to buy!

    Star Wars and Overwatch could introduce factories and military bases. Avengers Compound Battle will be aquired by me but I am honestly aiming for the building (and the figures for display) to use it in a Military Base MOC I am making (pictures when it is 80% comes like this MOD). But this particular set raised more than a few eyebrows in the AFOL sector.
