MOC: Micro Dino Defense HQ

21 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

This is my micro version of the Dino Defense HQ (set #5887). This was built for the 2012 MOCAthalon. It's one of my favorite sets that's out right now and I tried to copy the setup that Lego used in their photos of the set.

Enjoy :classic:

Your comments and suggestions are appreciated!

Excellent job, its instantly reconisible! You've done a very good job on the dinosaurs and vehicles as well, the only thing I would suggest is to make the supply crate in the bottom right of the photos a bit smaller?

Very cute! The T-rex is the best (and possibly only) one I've seen at that scale! As for the base itself, it evokes every aspect of the original set superbly.

This is awesome! Did you build a shrink ray along with that time machine? Cause this looks exactly like 5887. Great job! :thumbup:

As a matter of interest, do you think it would be possible for someone to recreate this using only parts from the new Dino Attack sets? How about just with parts from 5887 itself?

Looks great. Are you also planning on shrinking the rest of the Dino sets?

Though I'm wondering about something: How did you attach these parts to the front gate? I keep on wondering how you did that, but I'm still puzzled by it. *huh*

Unfortunately I don't think so :sad:

In particular I had to use a lot of yellow cheese and it looks like the only Dino set that has any (4) is 5886 T-Rex Hunter

I wasn't planning on shrinking any of the others when I built this since this was my first time building at this scale and I wasn't sure how much I'd like it but I may try this with the other sets because it was a lot of fun :laugh:

As for the gate the part I used was actually a 1x1 with clip that I wedged between the bars :tongue:

That's quite clever. I didn't know these tiles with clips could be wedged between those bars, so thank you for explaining.

Hello!

You did a great job in minimizing the entire sets! :classic: You kept it very accurate while shrinking everything down. Animals and vehicles are instantly recognizable. :classic: A pleasure for micro fans!

Cheers,

Great work! It looks more like seeing it from a distance than a micro version of it. Keep it up! :thumbup:

Thanks! I was pretty happy with the way the T-Rex came out but wasn't too sure of how to do the other 2 dinos :tongue:

This looks like an exact replica of the compound! The T-rex is great also, but the other Dinos look odd at this scale. There is nothing you can really do about that though. Great job on the MOC!

Great work on this little MOC! I love how you made the T-Rex and the HQ look practically the same as in the set but smaller. The little raptors are pretty cute as well.
