Olivia's Workshop.

Post by Locomotive Annie on Sat 13 Apr 2013, 8:48 am

Olivia is the Friend character I like the best as she reminds me so much of myself when I was younger. I was always a spanner in hand tomboy who liked to build and fix things and when I was in High School the sciences were my thing too.
The first Friends Set I ever purchased was 3933 Olivia's Workshop and in fact it was also the second set I purchased as well because I went back and bought another one later. My loco shed annex has been fitted out with the contents of one of the sets and the other set is still sealed because it's my precious...... um I mean that I'd like to keep a copy of this set to go into my little collection of unopened Lego sets.
The loco shed annex is a bit cramped for the contents of the 3933 set, but it does look reasonably nice as an interior. Sorry I can't show you a picture because I'd never built such a large Lego building before as a MOC and because I hadn't properly taken the modular concept into my building work the annex roof doesn't come off so it's only possible to see glimpses of the interior through the windows. lego@_@ .

When the 30102 Olivia's desk polybag was released I snaffled one of those up right away thinking I might rebuild and expand Olivia's Workshop with the additional parts in this small set. I haven't done that yet, but when I saw this mod of Olivia's Workshop (The guy mistakenly calls it Emma's workshop) I started to feel inspired again.....
Scroll down for the pictures.

Oh and in case you're wondering why Olivia has her workshop in the loco shed annex it's because she's a girl with a job. The Kotanga Tramway might seem to be an odd place for a girl from Heartlake City to end up, but I guess she might be doing her OE at the moment'

My Olivia is customised, but I guess you would have noticed that already. I used my former military modelling skills to modify a hairpiece for her so she can wear a hardhat and she also has a nice shiny pair of safety boots. The most tricky mod was getting her legs to properly articulate so she can walk, but after risking my fingertips with sharp objects for around twenty minutes I was successful and Olivia was one happy girl.

The thought of cutting in the groin has bought tears to my eyes.

Great work.

I was very very careful Brickie and I sterilised all my modelling tools before operating. legowink

The Olivia's workshop MOC is quite good, It would make a great extension on the school set as a science lab.

Yes I agree it certainly would. Something to think about when I can finally afford to buy the school.

This is awesome! I love the minidoll changes - do you find she's still pretty stable (with the split legs)? The boots and the hat issue were ones even my 5yo noticed ("Why doesn't she have real shoes?") and they look great in the pics, can we get some better close ups?!

Sorry for all the questions, but I think you're on to a winner here. I'd happily pay for a minidoll that could run or walk or wear a hat and have proper pants and shoes. We have an excess of them (about 4 Olivias to date, seemingly endless Stephanies etc) and so I could experiment, but it would be a disaster if the experiments failed! Would you consider modding for sale like that?
