vi·gnette n. A scene built on a small (often 8x8) base
Weren't they actually called X-Pods?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lego_Make_%26_Create#X-Pods
Yup. Those were X-pods. And it is a shame.
The little sets that came in a container were called X-pods.Vignette MOCs made of parts that all fit within the container, and the constructed scene usually incorporates the container, were dubbed V-pods. I've stopped updating my index of featured MOCs, but here is a listing of a bunch of V-pods made by various AFOLs:http://vignettebricksindex.blogspot.com/2006/06/featured-v-pods.html
I loved the X-Pod line. Thanks for the list of V-pods, I hadn't seen all of them. There was another form of x-pod building where you could build a moc and the whole thing disassembled would fit inside the pod container. I don't remember if there was a name for them but they were pretty ingenious.
