  1. My build for SHIPtember, USAF Daedalus from the TV show: Stargate SG1 and Stargate Atlantis. 101 studs long plus the antenna.It contains LEDs that light up the bow, the engines, the fighter bays and the command centre. It weighs 8kg, but I'll do a swoosh pic (or maybe a video) soon. USAF Daedalus by Sam Wright, on Flickr Full album here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/legosambo/albums/72157673276890781 WIP thread here if anyone is interested: https://www.flickr.com/photos/legosambo/albums/72157673008519285 It will be going on display at the EB Games Expo in Sydney this weekend.
  2. I built this a few months ago and recently displayed it at The Sydney Brick Show. New Tristram is the starting town in the game Diablo 3. I've based this build off the Adventure Mode version of the town (in Story Mode the layout is slightly different). The build is 3x5 baseplates in size, which all come apart for easy transport. So I'll start with the entrance to the town. This is how it looks ingame: [url="http://www.mmogames.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/action-mmo-games-diablo-3-new-tristram-screenshot.jpg"]http://www.mmogames....-screenshot.jpg[/url] Please note that I toned my version down a bit since it was on display at a family-friendly event (I also don't have much dark red to make blood stains...) [url="https://flic.kr/p/GsB7Bd"][img]https://c3.staticflickr.com/2/1659/26555350762_c368b83a7a_z.jpg[/img][/url] There aren't many pictures online of some sections of the town, so if you haven't played the game you'll have to just try to imagine it. I've missed a few things in this next section (like the burning pile of corpses... again, family-friendly) but most parts are covered. So this is just inside the gates: [url="https://flic.kr/p/Fn977i"][img]https://c6.staticflickr.com/2/1447/25837141813_67a11a7973_z.jpg[/img][/url] On the right is the boarded up house, which if you smash the door in the game, you can then access the portals to the Uber Bosses. In my build I've included a Crusader and a Wizard. In the background you can see the trailer for the Mystic (where in game you can spend a fortune on re-rolling the stats on your equipment, hoping for optimal stats). Next to that is the Jewel-crafter and his trailer. Here is the Blacksmith forge/wagon: [url="https://flic.kr/p/FSiv8d"][img]https://c7.staticflickr.com/2/1520/26167153630_3969bd4fc7_z.jpg[/img][/url] In the game this is where you can get weapons and armour crafted and repaired. In my model I included LifeLites to make a flickering flame effect both inside the forge and on the flames on the top. On the left you can see a Demon Hunter with his dual crossbows. The main building of the town - The Slaughtered Calf Inn. This is how it looks in game: [url="http://i.imgur.com/bLZoVvm.jpg"]http://i.imgur.com/bLZoVvm.jpg[/url] And my model: [url="https://flic.kr/p/FSipLm"][img]https://c1.staticflickr.com/2/1707/26167135600_30d4ff1e69_z.jpg[/img][/url] It's hard to create the darkness effect of the game using Lego. Also note that in the game, it is always night time in this area. I feel I've reproduced the inn quite well though. Due to poor planning of the internal support structure, I was unable to put lights inside, which I'm very disappointed with myself about. Here is the Waypoint (lets you instantly teleport to other waypoints in the game), the ghost of Zoltan Khule and Kanai's Cube. Behind them is the rift obelisk.

  3. Looks great! do you have any other photos from other angles?
  4. [quote name='TheBrickBuilder14' timestamp='1453074791' post='2441248'] These look amazing! Really love some of the techniques that you used for these! [/quote]Thanks mate! I haven't gotten around to building any more characters yet... but here's a bum-crack pic of the Engineer :D [img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1654/23723170874_0ff32955f0_z.jpg[/img]
  5. cool Falderal! I found the Peashooter to be one of the hardest characters to get the proportions right. I'm glad your son likes the models, my boy likes them too :-) With GW2 coming out next month, there will be loads more characters to build!
  6. I've now finished all the main characters of PvZ: Garden Warfare. I have a WIP thread [url="http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=117877"]here[/url] Here are the characters: [img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1653/24258676076_f0bea2c7fd_z.jpg[/img] [img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1508/24176964622_7fd8a4b9b5_z.jpg[/img] [img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1477/24177254682_22bdc588d7_z.jpg[/img] [img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1633/23657421094_9c2bf86ddb_z.jpg[/img] [img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1467/23658061294_c22c779e05_z.jpg[/img] [img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1537/23660154153_8c5830a7e5_z.jpg[/img] [img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1480/23919872589_a53dde6fb6_z.jpg[/img] [img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1583/23920017449_00993440d1_z.jpg[/img] I have also built the Garlic and Zombie Drones, as well as a Garden and a Graveyard (from the Gardens and Graveyards game mode), however I have not photographed them properly yet. I'll add them to this thread when I do. I also need to upload a decent photo of the Engineer's bum-crack ;-) Comments and Criticism welcome. Thanks, Sam
  7. Thanks :-) Here's all of them together. I should have the Engineer Zombie completed soon.

I've also made a garlic drone: [url="https://flic.kr/p/Bjngw4"][img]https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5654/23180333363_0ef0a075c7_c.jpg[/img][/url][url="https://flic.kr/p/Bjngw4"]Zombie Scientist and Garlic Drone[/url] by [url="https://www.flickr.com/photos/legosambo/"]Sam Wright[/url], on Flickr
  9. I'm still going with these.... Peashooter plant is now complete: [url=https://flic.kr/p/BAMZwu][img]https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5779/23366221300_883e6d5a0e_c.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/BAMZwu]Peashooter Plant[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/legosambo/]Sam Wright[/url], on Flickr
  10. I've made a Chomper plant now: [url=https://flic.kr/p/BMWAGH][img]https://farm1.staticflickr.com/572/23492381985_e139703b9f_c.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/BMWAGH]Chomper![/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/legosambo/]Sam Wright[/url], on Flickr I know the photos are a bit cluttered. I'll take better ones once I finish the whole lot. Working on the Peashooter plant at the moment
  11. I built this for the SydLUG 3 seed Christmas build challenge. The rules are that the build must contain a present, a tree, a minifig and have a footprint no larger than 16x16 studs, with no height restrictions. The idea came to me in the middle of the night and I had to get up and write it down so I wouldn't forget. An AT-AT with Christmas trees for legs. Trust me at the time I thought it was the most hilarious thing ever. So here it is. Vader riding on a gift-wrapped walker with Christmas trees for legs, on the ice planet Hoth.

  12. I'm hoping I've posted this in the most appropriate forum location. My son and I have been playing Garden Warfare quite a bit lately, and I've been a fan of PvZ for some time now, so I figured it was time to make some large scale lego versions of the characters. These are still a work in progress, and I've so far only built 4 out of the 8 playable classes (I'm just doing the base varients of each class, at least for now). So far I've built the Cactus and Sunflower for the plants, and the Foot Soldier and All Star for the zombies. I'm currently working on the Chomper plant. I will be re-doing the Footsoldier's gun as it's not very good. The Foot Soldier's body needs a bit of work also. Sunflower probably needs to be a little taller too.
