Chad's Lego Roundup

In 1996, Lego introduced the Wild West theme. The first year's lineup included several great sets, including 6761 Bandits Secret Hideout, 6765 Gold City Junction, and the flagship set: 6769 Fort Legoredo. The 1997 lineup saw the introduction of Native American sets. Since 1997, no new Wild West sets have been released.

Fans of Wild West Lego (such as myself) were very disappointed to see such a great idea abandoned after only two years and fifteen sets. There was a lot of potential for more great Lego sets, potential that has so far gone to waste.

But rather than hold my breath waiting for a new line of Wild West sets, I have tried my hand at some original creations. These two are hopefully the first of many, and will one day grow into a full fledged Wild West Lego town.

Top Hat Saloon

The saloon is usually the rowdiest place in any frontier town, and the Top Hat is certainly no exception. Here we see one of the local prospectors being held up by some outlaws, but the Sheriff and his men are on their way. Just above the doorway (on top of the yellow bricks on the roof over the porch) is the top hat which gives this establishment its name.

The Top Hat stays pretty busy both day and night, and the scene shown here is typical.

Patriot Hotel

Built in 1876, this establishment was originally known as the Centennial Hotel. It became the Patriot a few years later, as the event it was originally named after faded into history. The Patriot Hotel boasts the finest (and only) accomodations in town.

The Patriot's spacious lobby is always a welcome sight for weary travelers.
