  1. Hey everyone, here's my TC11 Entry Topic... The Reaper I started my work on my contest entry the day it began. I built a chassis using red rims and the wheels from 42039. It had a giant hammer (made in LDD). of Mjolnir.lxf It was called the "Wrath of Mjolnir." (Mjolnir is the name of the Norse God Thor's hammer.) The chassis was much too big, so I scrapped the entire chassis built IRL. I started thinking of Ideas in my mind, the first being a half-track of sorts. 107mm Tractor tires in the front, and tracks in the back. After thinking more, I decided it would be better to just make it simple, with 4 wheels, and I built up the bodywork. I decided that the hammer was way too big, so I made 2 smaller ones. After thinking even longer and looking at other bot hammers I thought they were still too large, so I opted for a non-brick-built one instead. I remembered I had this piece, and knew it would be perfect. I also bought a bucket, because it looked good and I knew it would be prefect for trapping opponents inside. Here is what I have now, and the name was changed to The Reaper, because the piece looks like part of a scythe. The scythe is not attached yet. Also, after seeing @agrof's topic, I realized the bucket was too big for the maximum size. But I've figured out a way to move it upward into the box limitation and swivel it back down for battle mode. I still have much to do, like, Attach the scythe put the PF back in (it is in something else right now) make the bucket move fix the colors complete the bodywork So, it is definitely a WIP, but I hope to do it right and do well in this competition. Please tell me your thoughts!

    Since the beginning of time, minifigs have suffered from illness. Throughout the world, all plastic populations had to face plagues, curses or infections, with massive casualties... But what would have been the world if at any time the dead had risen back?... The world was, is or will be a place where the Survivors have to fight the Undeads! About the Braaaiiinnns contest This contest is about zombies, all kind of zombies, but more importantly all time period of zombies! Medieval zombies, Pirates zombies, Space zombies, Friends zombies, City zombies... they are all welcome in this contest! Categories A: The Wastelands - Create a scene, no bigger than 48x48 studs, where the Undeads roam and the Survivors fight for their life. B: The Shelters - Create a scene, no bigger than 24x24 studs, where the Survivors feel safe enough to call it their home. C: The Machines - Create a vehicle used by the Survivors or the Undeads (yes, some zombies still have enough brain to drive a vehicle) D: The Survivors and Undeads - Design and assemble a group of five Survivors or five Undeads.

  3. An entry for the LEGO Life logo contest on Rebrick. Under each ‘stud’ on the brick, there is an 8×8 minifig scale vignette, in the same theme as the microscale build above it. I tried to represent three of the core themes of LEGO: City, Space, and Castle. This was a very enjoyable build, as I got to dabble in several themes, but it still all came together fairly quickly and easily. Lots more pictures on Brickbuilt Thanks for looking, C&C welcome
  4. Built for the Vastlands Cross category of the 2017 LEGO speeder Bike Contest over on Flickr. I decided to go with a Rock Raiders theme for my bikes this year, which was great fun. We acquired several Rock Raiders figs and some dark turquoise parts at BFVA 2016, so it was good to put them to use. The Rapid Rider is well equipped for it’s trek across the vastlands, with its chrome drills ready to decimate any obstacle in it’s path. In the unlikely event a repair is needed, there are survival supplies and tools in the satchel. It also comes with retractable landing gear for easy maintenance and landing. More pictures on Brickbuilt Thanks for looking, C&C welcome
  5. Hello, this is the mask from "V for Vendetta". It´s my entry for a contest on Master-Builders The challenge is to build a face with 100 bricks or less. It would be nice if someone would join. The contest ends on 27.02.2017.
  6. This is MOC of December 2012. I built my first vignette for a Magic World of Harry Potter Contest on and it took 9th place with 15 votes. The contest task were to illustrate one scene from HP book and the base of vignette should be no more than 16x16. At that moment I had only four HP minifigures (Harry, Draco, Snape and Bellatrix) so I decided to made something more interesting than just a Potions lesson. “I only came out because Mary told me you were threatening to sleep here.” “I was. I would have done. I never meant to call you Mudblood, it just—” “Slipped out?” There was no pity in Lily’s voice. “It’s too late. I’ve made excuses for you for years. None of my friends can understand why I even talk to you. You and your precious little Death Eater friends—you see, you don’t even deny it! You don’t even deny that’s what you’re all aiming to be! You can’t wait to join You-Know-Who, can you?” He opened his mouth, but closed it without speaking. “I can’t pretend anymore. You’ve chosen your way, I’ve chosen mine.” “No—listen, I didn’t mean—” “—to call me Mudblood? But you call everyone of my birth Mudblood, Severus. Why should I be any different?” He struggled on the verge of speech, but with a contemptuous look she turned and climbed back through the portrait hole… © J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, chapter 33 The Prince's Tale. Main photo. Empty space in vignette emphasizes the distance that has arisen between the characters. Young Severus. Portrait of the Fat Lady and young Lily. Lily Evans and Severus Snape. Without minifigures. Backside view. Portrait of the Fat Lady can be raised to open the entrance to Gryffindor Tower. Lily leaves. It's too late to apologize... Thanks for watching and any comments are very welcomed)

  8. Hi everybody! New edition of Brickstory by Kockice just started We're inviting all LUG members to join us in a historical adventure with our favourite bricks. Four themes and four well known judges are alone enough to make this contest awsome. But since it's a contest, few prizes are here to spice up the competitiveness. Thanks! And if any questions, don't be a stranger Good luck!
  9. (CCC14) Clarendon Castle by Mark E., on Flickr (CCC14) Clarendon Castle by Mark E., on Flickr My 8th and final entry to the CCC 14! Happy new year everyone!
  10. My 6th entry for the Colossal Castle Contest, this time in the Archery Tournament category. I enjoyed getting to use our sand green plates for the landscape. The annual horseback archery tournament in Avalonia is always a popular competition. Since Avalonian archery is generally more focused on long bow use, its usually a close contest between the four guilds.Spectator stands are placed around the range, while wooden stakes mark how close archers are allowed to get to targets. More pictures, here. Thanks for looking, comments and suggestions welcome
  11. Hello all Train MOC-ers, I'm planning to run a train-building contest in 2017. I was thinking of such a competition for one year by now, the last one I saw here was somewhere back in 2009 or something among that line. According to some of my interests in LEGO Trains, it would be a contest with quite strict rules you can read below: -MOC train should be a proportional model of a real locomotive, passenger car, freight wagon or motor unit -(I also plan to add that only a model of a real train produced in the last 15 years can be entered, as I'm interested in Epoch VI trains, but I can drop this one) -Body width should be at least 7 studs wide -Only new creation can be entered, trains already designed, train already designed but with different color scheme, train designed in LDD and published before are not allowed. On the other hand I need at least three master train builders, who could evaluate the entered creations taking into account: -Proportions and design - how close is the model to the real thing -technical solutions (interesting part usage, techniques presented) -Running (a video should be uploaded where the train runs on different geometries built from standard track pieces) If you are interested, please send me an e-mail [ ashivalkoinen at gmail . com ] with some photos of your works (references), and with the following data: -full name and best-known nickname -nationality Prices I'm living in Eastern Europe, with salaries you may estimate for an Eastern Europe country, but as a pledge I will put one set of Horizon Express and a bunch of track (either sets or in bulk). Since the contest is NOT ongoing, I gladly accept any ideas related to the contest.
  12. I made these for the Rebrick contest for the 10th anniversary of modular buildings. The task was an interior vignette up to 16x16 studs in size which would thematically fit in any of the modular buildings. I tried to refrain as much as possible from using many ready-made items and accessories. Hotel Lobby for the Cafe Corner Baby room for Pet Shop (the building, not the store, lol)

  17. Hello Everyone, My entry for this contest is a man lift inspired by a Genie picture. Manual Features: 4 wheel steer rotating structure Pneumatic Features: Power Functions pump Main Parallel Lift Secondary Lift Cage Lift All valves located in the basket.
  18. It's time for me to submit an entry for the TC10 contest. After toying with a lot of ideas, the idea of a concept bulldozer was the one I gravitated to. I had a lot of fun coming up with the esthetics. Hope you enjoy as well. Features: Power Functions Pneumatic Pump Blade Lift (2 Pneumatic Rams) Blade Tilt/Angle (2 Pneumatic Rams) Hood Opening (1 Pneumatic Ram) Ripper (1 Pneumatic Ram) Opening Driver Door 16 Cylinder Engine I'll post the video soon.
  19. It is the spooky season once again. Come and take a look at this fangtastic contest in the Licensed Themes forum.
  20. Here on Eurobricks we love to give our members cool prizes and we've got a treat for you. Two LEGO Dimensions character packs are up for grabs! Treehouse of Horror is now a Halloween tradition, so it fits the season! What I want to see is some Spooky Simpsons builds. We can see the folks of Springfield enjoying the festivities, representation of our favourite alien visitors or some creation of favourite tales from the treehouse. All you need to do is follow these simple rules: You need to be a member of Eurobricks who joined before the 20th October 2016.. This is a fun thing, so have FUN! The MOC needs to have at least two (2) original Lego pieces in it, NO clone ones. You can build either with real parts or use LDD, MLCad etc. The MOC needs to be new - no recycling here please - just fresh stuff. The entry must be posted in this thread before 10 pm GMT, by the 4th of November, 2016. Your entry must include one image (and only one image) and be no larger than 800x600. One entry per qualified member. All members including the Staff can join, all but me that is Two random qualifying builds will be drawn after entry closes and the creators will win the prize! So get building and have fun.
  21. I'd like to show you my progress on my pneumatic tank. It includes the following functions: Driving Rotating of turret Shooting Barrel adjustment Both tracks can be controlled separately. I used gearracks to transform the linear motion into rotation to drive the tracks. I used a combination of gears to allow the tracks to move forward by extending and contraction of the cylinders. Therefore it is ony possible to drive forward. I limited the rotation of the turret by a 90 degrees to the left and 90 degrees to the right. This allows for the hoses to go through the turntable. The shooting mechanism shoot when the cylinders extend, and when the retract. This allows for relatively fast shooting. Do you have any suggestions what can be added or improved, just let me know.
  22. Coming in at over 600 pieces (approximately 85% CCBS, 12.5% Technic and 2.5% System) and 55 cm (1 foot 10 inches) tall is my Makuta contest entry! He features two sets of wings, a Mask of Ultimate Power with adjustable facial expressions, a traditional villainous cape, ten tentacular tendrils and the stability of a Hero Factory 2.0 figure. Furthermore, his 70 cm (2 feet 4 inches) wingspan can fold up behind his cape to act as an extension of said cape. As you can see, he towers over any other CCBS figure. Even Grievous only comes up to his waist. Anyway, his gallery contains many more pictures showing off his various features.
  23. Here’s my entry to the Rebrick “Show Us Your Makuta” contest - Makuta: Brute of Shadow! This model features a swivelling waist and swinging arms, both controlled via the knobs on his back. Entry page (give it a like!)
  24. Hi! This is my first topic on the forum, I would probably not have posted at all if it weren't for the pneumatic contest. A combination of me seeing the 42053 EW160 and finding my old lego technic from late 90's and early 00's led me to this forum filled with nice people playing with arguably the most versatile toy ever. I'm a trained mechanical engineer, though not practicing my trade yet, and looking back I believe Lego Technic was one of the big inspirations that made me choose that career path. Back in the day I had (and still have) a 8459 pneumatic wheel loader, and now I was leaning towards buying the 42053 EW160. But why not test my skills (and luck?) by making a nice little MOC for the contest. Enough drivel about the good old days, over to what I've come up with so far. Please bear with me, I am aware that you guys are way better at this, have more parts at home etc. The point of this project was to make something that I actually wanted for my already existing sets without costing a fortune for me to buy and build. It's a trailer suitable for both the 8459 and 42053, inspired by the Swedish-made trailers from Metsjö. I wanted it to be more than just a regular trailer with tipping function, so I'm aiming for a two-step high tip function which raises the rear of the bed before tipping it. The tailgate is automatically opening and closing with the tipping, thanks to a lever on each side which are connected to the frame. The final "function", so far, is a parking support in the front. This is what I've come up with so far, I must say that LDD is really bad when you want to try the functionality of your model. I still haven't figured out how to make the pneumatic circuit work as intended. The goal is to put the main switch on the Digger/Loader/Tractor pulling the trailer, leaving the two-step function automated and built into the trailer. So when you pull the lever to tip your load, it first lifts the rear, then tips. I'm hoping that my old friends, the laws of physics, will solve this for me without the need of two extra switches on board to route the air, but I suspect that Murphy's law will decide my fate in the end. So what do you guys think? Too simple and easy? Too predictable? Put on a LA and paint it gray and you'll end up with half an Arocs? Awesome? Improvements? Other ideas? If the feedback is good enough I'll just have to convince my bank account that I need to make an "investment" or two on bricklink to build it IRL. There's still a lot of things that needs testing which is not possible in LDD, so I'm a bit scared that I will have bought a bunch of bricks that won't work... metsjo-trailer.lxf
