Topic: What Bricks To Buy For SCIFI SETS?

As the title says I am planning to do a little scifi brick film however I don't have many bricks that are really related and look scifiy so it would be greatly appreciated if you guys could give any photos or suggestions of bricks to get. Thanks!

Re: What Bricks To Buy For SCIFI SETS?

Really any translucent or shiny parts, especially if they're in a bright color, and if they're used on straight black or white backgrounds. Just search by color on BrickLink or BrickOwl, should give you lots of great ideas, or check out The Brothers Brick archives of great sci fi MOCs for more inspiration here: https://www.brothers-brick.com/tag/sci-fi/

I think any of the “greebley” pieces work great to spice up land and spacecraft. They’re also suitable for interior spaces to give an industrial feel.

If they’re all the same color - you’ve got a hip new craft or building . If the colors are all over the map- perhaps the vehicle is more bandaid than vehicle-the greebling will give it life or a lived in feel.

Some cool ones I like:

…and of course cheese slopes-they’re fun to pepper in.

Have fun.

Some great ones here too, can't go wrong with greebles, but with cheese slopes, due to their overpowering brilliance, it's usually better to use em sparingly.
