Greg here, and my first real MOC attempt!
After being spurred on to take more time out and to work on bigger and better builds, I set out to create something around the new LEGO exclusive Party Banana Guy.
The initial idea was instantly there after taking one look at this awesome Minifigure….Sipping a cocktail at a shack on the beach!
It’s not a big build in most MOC builders eyes but for my first real attempt it was for me.
I must admit that I’m not a big fan of the Friends range, saying that some of the accessories I used came from the Friends magazines. They were perfect for this build; Bright, colourful and match the beach theme around it.
The shack itself is loosely based on a rustic log cabin/shed style building. Front opening to serve customer’s their drinks, window/bars at the side for and open feel, and a solid back with shelving space for the drinks and fruit etc
A Palm Tree overshadowing the shack was a must, giving it that ‘on the beach’ feel. The extra leaves and bugs are great detail points and add to the over aesthetic.
And of course the exclusive LEGO Minifigure is pride of place enjoying his Pinacolada on the beach, being served by the local Surfer dude come Bartender.
I’m happy with how it turned out and will look at possibly expanding it some more. Please head over to our Instagram account and like the accompanying post!
