  1. Thanks!!
  2. The Tivan Collection presents the Guardians of the Galaxy, for the first time on display. Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! by Evan Ridpath, on Flickr I haven't had the chance to experience the new ride at Disney's California Adventure yet and as much as I adored and will miss the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, I'm certain this new attraction will bring some fresh energy to DCA, especially as Disney pushes for more of a Marvel presence in the parks. The unique look of the building was begging to be built in LEGO!

  3. Great sense of action for such a small scale!
  4. As everyone has pointed out already, the details, techniques, and colors in this are astounding! I keep coming back to this now as inspiration for castle mocs!
  5. Hello Eurobricks friends, After an amazing trip to New Zealand this past June, I felt determined to construct my own "Hobbit Hole" in LEGO. While this particular build is not based on any of the 44 hobbit holes that were built in Matamata for the filming of "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" films in particular, I instead drew from inspiration from many of the various homes to design my own little hobbit hole. Enjoy! LEGO Hobbit Hole by Evan Ridpath, on Flickr LEGO Hobbit Hole by Evan Ridpath, on Flickr
  6. Tremendous use of layering with all the different scales represented! It really gives the scene depth and makes it feel alive! Fantastic job!
  7. Thank you everyone for the kind words! Of course once more details on Disney's "Star Wars Land" surface, it will be fun to translate that world into LEGO on new scales!
  8. As I commented on flickr, what really sells this for me is the use of colors--the mix of grey and sand blue, with touches of tan. It packs in so much of a classic Star Wars feel that I think we all identify with and haven't seen in an X-Wing MOC yet. Such perfect ingredients and so wonderfully executed! One of my favorites!
  9. Hello, friends! I've felt inspired by the concept art by Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Imagineering that's been released this month for the yet-to-be-officially named "Star Wars Land" coming to Disneyland and Disney's Hollywood Studios! Thought I would take a stab at recreating a miniature model based on the released artwork! Enjoy! "Star Wars Land" by Evan Ridpath, on Flickr The Millennium Falcon Attraction by Evan Ridpath, on Flickr Disney has announced that the Millennium Falcon will have its own attraction! Imperial Shuttle by Evan Ridpath, on Flickr The artwork also teases a First Order presence in "Star Wars Land" with an Imperial Shuttle docked on a nearby landing platform. Critter Country Entrance by Evan Ridpath, on Flickr The land will be rich with a multitude of immersive Star Wars-themed shops and restaurants, transporting guests to this new spaceport outpost designed for the Disney theme parks. Frontierland Entrance by Evan Ridpath, on Flickr Thanks for stopping by, and may the force be with you!
  10. Sweet design! Definitely feel like this could be a precursor to the X-Wing, much like the ARC-170! Great colors too!
  11. Thank you! I tried to make most of the details as accurate to the source material, but of course took my own artistic/creative liberties when adapting this for display purposes. Hey, nice to hear from you! I definitely agree, the Starspeeder is the thing that could use the most improvement and it's the thing that needs the most attention next--I'll probably end up taking it apart and doing a total rehaul on it. There are over 100 pictures of the whole setup on my flickr page: Thanks! Turns out even Star Tours needs Radar Technicians working for them!
  12. Nice job getting this one built before anyone else! I imagine this will be a fun build to modify over the coming months/year as more source material will become available for comparison.
  13. I've been tempted to purchase this set for display purposes and you might have just convinced me to do it :)
  14. Hello, Eurobricks! I have a passion for anything Star Wars and Disney, so when you combine the two into a theme park ride, I'm hooked! Star Tours: The Adventures Continue is the prequel version of the popular Disney theme park attraction, placing guests into the immersive Star Wars universe through an intergalactic travel agency, Star Tours. Welcome to: Star Tours, Spaceport THX-1138 Main Terminal, Tomorrowland LEGO Star Tours: The Adventures Continue by Evan Ridpath, on Flickr We enter into a huge repair bay to see Star Tours' newest employees at work servicing a Starspeeder 1000 before takeoff. C-3PO, the systems-analyst, monitors the controls while R2-D2, the navigator, repairs the forward laser cannons on the vessel, just in case they run into any debris in space. You can never be too careful! LEGO Star Tours: The Adventures Continue by Evan Ridpath, on Flickr C-3PO: "How should I know what's wrong with the ship? I am an interpreter, not an astromech. However, you might just check the logic circuits. Sometimes I think these new transports have a mind of their own." Supervisor: "Transport 22, prepare for elevation to passenger boarding level." C-3PO: "Oh, that's us, Artoo. Standby for final systems check. Forward lights? Check! Deflector shield? Check! Laser cannons? Check! Hyperdr.... I said check, Artoo! Shut them down before you blow up the whole place!" LEGO Star Tours: The Adventures Continue by Evan Ridpath, on Flickr I attempted to pack in as many details as I could with this build. The Disney Imagineers who develped this attraction were very clever to include many easter eggs throughout the design and I wanted to reflect those in my build: LEGO Star Tours: The Adventures Continue by Evan Ridpath, on Flickr Captain Rex LEGO Star Tours: The Adventures Continue by Evan Ridpath, on Flickr G2-4T LEGO Star Tours: The Adventures Continue by Evan Ridpath, on Flickr The search of the Rebel Spy LEGO Star Tours: The Adventures Continue by Evan Ridpath, on Flickr The Mighty Microscope from Adventures Thru Inner Space LEGO Star Tours: The Adventures Continue by Evan Ridpath, on Flickr You can view the entire build on my Flickr page: https://www.flickr.c...157635005236200 Feedback is always appreciated! Thank you and enjoy!
  15. Fun! I've been looking forward to seeing more pirate MOCs with these minifigures around now :)
