  1. "KUBO and two Strings", the animation movie is so fantastic, I loved it so much. So I try to build the characters by LEGO pieces, and try to make them as small as I can. Here we go. I will show you 1 by 1, first is KUBO. i kept the shape of his mouth just like that he was telling the story. You can look at the back, I used a spider to present the bug image. When KUBO carried the two strings, he looks like this. The photo he taken with Mini-Hanzang. And the "Mother Monkey" And the "Father Bug" Let's look at the size compare. Father and Son Mother and Child The family I used the unique building technique to build the heads, and make them close to 7.5 similar with they are in the movie. Front looking The Back looking And the short video for introduction: Thanks for watching, See you next model.
  2. Presenting my latest MOC: 42043 UDS! Thanks! BrickbyBrick
  3. Finally! I am done! Or am I? ... Luke is sitting in the rather uncomfortable steel chair of the Redemption’s medical bay. His new mechanical hand feels cold where it is attached to the bone. Stupid Vader… His glance wanders up towards the large viewport. He squints as the light of the hundreds of billions of stars in the galaxy greets him. But the glow of the stars is just a faint glimmer compared to the magnificence of the kickass Rebel Fleet just outside! My latest creation is the Rebel Fleet as seen in the last scene of the Empire Strikes Back: Fear the Might of the Rebel Fleet! UPDATE: Many more fighters: Overview The fleet is made up of the following ships (Updated): - 15 T65A X-Wings - 16 BLT Y-Wings - 6 A/SF B-Wing Heavy Assault Starfighters - 5 RZ-1 A-Wings - 2 TIE/LN Starfighters - 1 Lambda-class T-4a Shuttle (Tyderium) - 1 heavily modified YT-1300 Light Freighter (The Millennium Falcon) aka. a piece of junk. - 3 GR-75 Medium Transports - 1 CR-90 Corellian Corvette (the Tantive IV) aka. A Blockade Runner - 1 EF76 Nebulon-B Escort Frigate with medical retrofit (The Redemption) And… - 1 heavily modified Firespray-31-class Patrol and Attack Craft (Slave 1) As you can see a few guests have snuck in – not all of them are especially welcome. There are a number of unidentified ships in the fleet scene, but rather than speculate on the exact scale and shape of these ships, I have focused on creating “Guests to Scale”. The Fleet Or “Home, sweet home”, as it is known to many rebels. The Fleet. . Straight Perspective. This angle gives an overlook of the fleet and a sense of how the different ships relates to one another. Flying away. I was a bit challenged capturing the entire fleet from this angle – a few ships are missing in this shot, but a wall was in the way. The Flagship Leading the fleet is the flagship, the Medical Frigate – Redemption. The Flagship. The Medical Frigate is currently the flagship of this ragged fleet. The eagle eyed amongst you may be able to spot that I once again have made a number of modifications and added detail. Hint: The changes can be found from front to back on the ship :) Charting the Course. The flagship leads the way. Mmm look at those engines… The Falcon The most famous (and infamous) ship in the Rebel Fleet. This old YT-1300 freighter has seen more action in its lifetime than half the Imperial Fleet. Falcon and Transport. This picture is interesting because it shows the Falcon’s size in relation to a number of ships (the fighters closest to the camera not included). The Falcon is naturally dwarfed by the Transport, but it is also worth noticing how little space there must be on the bridge of the Transport. Two pilots would be hard pressed to fit in there. Closer. Here the docking ring and cockpit are in focus, but we also get a sense of scale in relation to the characters in the viewport of the medical bay. Falcon Front View. Several types of smaller crafts and fighters can dock and resupply with the frigate. The Rebel Fighters Escorting the fleet is a range of different, specialized fighters, from A-wings to Y-wings. Fighters. Five types of fighters can be seen this picture. A-wings. Beginning alphabetically, we have two A-wings zipping by the Deflector Control tower of the frigate. A-wings are among the fastest fighters in the Rebel Fleet, giving even a TIE Interceptor a run for its money. B-wing. Two B-wings are in the Rebel Fleet, they are not on direct escort duty, but more than capable of disabling even larger Imperial ships with their formidable array of deadly weapons. The B-wing was developed by none other than Admiral Ackbar and is the most heavily armed fighter in the Rebel Fleet. The fighter is mainly used in hit and run missions against Imperial targets. X-wing. The X-wing is the most common fighter in the Rebel Fleet. Today it is on escort duty, but this all-round fighter is capable of so much more; for example transporting force-adept farmboys around the galaxy and blowing up multi-trillion-credit Imperial installations. Y-wing. Six trusty old Y-wings serve as escorts in the Rebel Fleet. The attack fighter mainly serves on bombing runs but can also be used for escort detail. The fighter is one of the oldest active fighter designs in the rebel fleet and has gone through a number of modernizations. Most Y-wings have their engines’ hull plating stripped to make the heavy fighter lighter. The Corvette If you freeze frame the last scene of the Empire Strikes Back, you can just make out the silhouette of a Blockade Runner flying in the background. The model for this ship is most like the Tantive IV, which is the one I used for reference when building my CR-90 Corellian Corvette. Corvette Front View. The Corvette trails the Medical Frigate in the fleet. It is the second largest ship in the convoy and sports formidable anti-fighter capabilities. As such the Corvette could easily fly without fighter escorts, but a prudent fleet admiral has assigned four Y-wings to escort the ship – this may prove to be a very wise decision. Corvette Side View. As Slave 1 zooms past the Corvette the main canons try to train on the target, however the target is much too fast. Front/Side. The Corvette is followed by two more Transports. Corvette Engines. So many glorious engines. Unwelcome Guests Building at this scale it became very hard not to build other crafts, which may not be a part of the Rebel Fleet. I am a sucker for scale models and seeing ships in relation to each other, plus it gives the entire scene a sense of action. This is not just a Rebel Fleet meandering the outskirts of the galaxy; stuff is about to go down :) Slave 1. Boba Fett jumps in from hyperspace, almost colliding with the Rebels. Can the Imperial agent sabotage and disable the frigate before he has to flee? Even the powerful Slave 1 is no match for a Rebel Fleet this size, so he has to be quick. Slave 1 Up Close. The little Slave 1 moc features as much de detail as possible: a fully rendered back side with engines, poseable wings, canons and a translucent cockpit. The wedge slope is from the 6964 mini Slave 1 set. Imperial Shuttle and TIE Fighters. Have the Rebels already captured and secured Tyderium? And two TIEs? Did Boba Fett track the Rebel thieves and follow them to the fleet? Why don’t we see these TIEs in Return of the Jedi? So many questions! The Rebel Transports Rebel Transports are the backbone of the fleet. They carry supplies and mobile bases the ragtag group of freedom fighters can put up anywhere in the galaxy. Close Quarters. A 90 meter long transport flying side by side with the flagship and being utterly dwarfed. Enjoying the View. The Transport captain is probably thinking the Princess is waving at him from the viewport of the Frigate. Side by Side. The Rebel transports have very limited armaments, thus each transport is escorted by two X-wings, piloted by the elite Rouge Squadron. Containers. Each transport features dozens of containers. I have made sure that each transport features a specific container configuration – they can’t all transport the same stuff :) Details. Besides the container configuration, each transport features unique detailing. Having three carbon copies of the same ship is boring and by adding different detailing to the ships, each craft gets its own storied life. To sum up Building this fleet has been a challenging experience. It has been frustrating at times, but also very rewarding. Thanks to all the comments and feedback from all of you who commented on the various ships, and thanks to the EB staff for the shoutouts! I leave you with one last shot: Rebels in Space! As always, please let the comments fly!
  4. I decided to combine my two copies of 6889: Recon Robot into a single Spyrius vehicle. This model doesn't use every piece from both bots, but it does use most of them! The Crypto Crawler is composed of a forward sensory module with eyes and grabbers, a central control module, and a rear storage module which carries tools and a unique payload. The arms are sturdy and can articulate similarly to arms found in official Spyrius sets,.the plane tail pieces give the neck an interesting "lean", and the face of the vehicle is cute and dinosaur-y (maybe a stolen Roboforce design?) A Spyrius minifigure can easily fit inside the middle segment, though access to the control panel there is a little snug. Turntables connecting the segments allow the Crawler to slither around. Turning the end modules to the side also makes accessing the storage boxes easier. Once deployed, the Crypto Crawler's cool cargo requires some re-configuration by Spyrius agents... Voila! This lightweight, fold-out flying vehicle was mostly a way of using up some of the more specialized parts that didn't make it into the main model, but I'm actually very happy with how closely it resembles designs from retro games like Galaga. I started this MOC as an exercise in utilizing a limited parts palette while trying to match the aesthetics of an official theme, and I'm very satisfied with the results. The modular design also means that, if I ever get my hands on a third Recon Robot, I could turn it into additional segments that slot right in to this model! You can find more pictures of the Crypto Crawler on my Bricksafe. Critiques are welcome!
  5. One of the first buildings (from our part of the layout) complete for a Medieval layout to be displayed at a LEGO event in Denmark in May (Klodsfest 2017 Aarhus) More buildings can be seen in the video below
  6. Hello, Here is my latest MOC, a hexapod: I will not get into great explanation on how it works: my English does not allow me. The operating principle of the walker is as follows: - The legs are always synchronized. They are actuated by a motor L. - Their amplitude varies depending on the curvature of the frame: in bends, the legs of the left and those on the right course is not the same distance. Curvature is ordered by a servomotor. The tabs are actuated by connecting rods and slide in pivot points. To change the amplitude, simply varying the pivot point height Photos : Functions: guns and motorized cockpit (2 motor M): Here is a little animation to see their kinematic: Finally, the video: Thanks for reading. :)
  7. The residents of Redbrick Springs may live in a mountain town thousands of miles away from the nearest ocean, but that doesn't mean that they can't enjoy all the midcentury modern fun of a tiki bar! Well, in this case, a tiki juice bar: the Kahuka Lounge. Here is the exterior: Here are some interior shots. Note the Polynesian and ocean/island-inspired decorations all throughout: The bar: Ice machine, blenders, juicer, fruit, and sink: More fruit, juices, and a cup-holding tiki: The owner of the Kahuka Lounge is mysterious; some say he's impossibly old. However, if you know the right people, you can get an invitation to his rooftop hot tub.
  8. Well, here it is! My first train MOC that I've ever made, the Orient Express! Including a large Pacific class style locomotive similar to the Emerald Night, a tender, and a passenger car, I cobbled this together from several Bricklink orders and the LEGO Constitution Train Chase. ( I was very sad to take it apart, but it was for the greater good!) The passenger coach features opening doors, and I was able to put two lights into the roof, so it can light up at night! Here's the official story on this MOC: -Oh no! There's a Mummy on the Orient Express! Join dashing, adventurous Arthur Rutledge as he travels across Europe with several priceless artifacts to be delivered to the Louvre Museum in Paris. But be careful, his evil nemesis Cad Goldwater is also aboard, and will stop at nothing to acquire the relics. Will Rutledge be successful, or will the Orient Express be stopped by the nefarious plans of Cad? It's up to you! You can also see more photos of this MOC on the Orient Express Thriller page on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/150692089@N03/albums/72157676895085431/with/31865151642/ This project is also on LEGO Ideas to support! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/162979 We would really appreciate the support! Thank you. :) A couple extra pictures!
  9. Good day! Sometimes I make MOCs that don't deserve a topic, or simply have WIP concepts that I don't publish . This will serve as a place where I post my WIP creations that may end being a MOC , and small sized MOCs which are too simple to post a video or create a topic. Note: Pentax is a separate story that will remain on a separate topic. Current WIPs: #1 Helix simple helicopter Functions: Realistic controls - cyclic control, anti-torque pedals and collective control Here is a good page that explains in detail the controls of a helicopter Real helicopters changes the pitch of the blades. So will be mine Info: A helicopter not based on any real one . Black color scheme. Studded and Studless will be used . Here is a preview of the cyclic control, not conected to the joystick and with provisional frame. #2 Twin-rotor helicopter Functions: Counter-rotating rotors using ZBLJ's mechanism Openable rear cargo bay door Winch with automatically opening floor Two speed gearbox with one way output (Swoosh around mode which disables all the motorized functions except rotor movement and play mode with slower speed and enabled functions. Info: Not based on any real helicopter. White color scheme . ZBLJ's rotor mechanism used Early prototype video:(Flickr video) Coaxial helicopter first progress by Alaxaf, on Flickr #3 Small supercar Functions : Drive and steer Info: Probably based on a GTA supercar. Light body. RC train motor. Anto's drift steering. 49.5x20 tires will be used 2 failed prototypes were made . Conclusion : Bigger tires will be used (the ones listed above) and a servo must be bought. Small MOCs: Coming soon That's all for now, leave your thoughts and vote in the poll
  10. Hi All, I've finally finished all my classic space builds and turned them into the following layout. Tregatis VI Mining Operation Tregatis VI is a uninhabited planet located in the Pegasus galaxy. The CS explorers discovered the planet contains a rare mineral that has great potential as an energy source. They have set up a mining operation on the planet to extract the ore and ship it back to earth for refining. More pictures of the layout here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/brickknight/albums/72157679447551513 If you are interested in just the ships and vehicles you can find these here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/brickknight/albums/72157672326318882 Hope you enjoy. Thanks.
  11. I already had the concept of "little castles from different subthemes" last year, but I didn't have the time to build it. Not long ago, I realised that the Yellow Castle will be 40 years old in 2018. I've put the two things together, and created a Lego Ideas project to commemorate this anniversary of the Castle theme. The concept of this MOC is similar to the 4002016 set: recreate some of the iconic castles of the Lego Castle history in smaller size. I've chosen a castle set from each decade from the 1970s to the 2010s and created a little tower that resembles that set. It was built in LDD and rendered in Bluerender. It was the first time I tried Bluerender, and I'm quite satisfied with it, but the texturing of the missing minifig and shield decals was pretty time consuming. You can see more pictures here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/149157518@N03/albums/72157680073276641 If you like my MOC, please support it on Lego Ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/171709
  12. Hi there everyone! This is my first real MOC post that I've put a lot of work into so please be kind I decided to create what a potential second line up could look like for another Disney CMF Series. I have a rational for every character I chose and if you've got any questions feel free to ask me below or PM me. All of the figures and pictures can be on my flickr linked below, and if you want to swing by there and leave a favourite or follow me to see my further updates it'd be much appreciated A few things to note. First off the figures are all hand drawn and I am working towards creating a better way to merge the hand drawing and digital aspects of the figures. If you recall the packaging for the first CMF was Blue and the colour I have chosen here is Yellow this is of course to reflect how the first non-licensed CMF was Yellow and the second Blue (Bit of Irony I guess). I have also included characters I felt were left out or needed to complete the figures that came in the 1st wave. For example the inclusion of Woody, Lilo, and Goofy. I have also tried to keep about the same amount of villains as there were in the original and plan to do so in future ones as well (If you guys like them of course ). Oh one last thing to note I think is that this is almost identical to the wishlist I created over a year ago so if there is someone you'd like to see me do I'll try to squeeze them into a future line (Only if they fit my criteria though). Also forgot to say that @Robert8 and his creations was a huge inspiration to do this, so thanks! So with out further ado.... Bag Mockup: Checklist Mockup: The Figures are in the spoiler tag:
  13. my battlebot is replica of "icewave". Icewave is heavywaight class battlebot, use horizontal blade powered by 2-strok combustion engine. So it's very powerful and this is why I love icewave. Anyway, I will use 2 rechargible batterybox, 1 RC buggy motor for weapon, 1 M motor and 1 PF switch for weapon control, 2 L motor for move. Yes. this is how to work my "brickwave". Basically, icewave drive it's blade in the middle of body, so very smooth turntable need to blade rotation. LoL. I find turntable turn extremely smooth. Not modifited or sanding turntable. It's just rotation allmost 1.5 year. So it sanded itself. Hear's current build prograss. Gear is 40:56 from RC motor's fast output. I will upload more here when make. http://battlebots.wikia.com/wiki/Icewave info of icewave
  14. I've been notified that LEPIN is now stealing MOCS from AFOLs to potentially make into sets. https://www.reddit.com/r/lepin/comments/65c5o7/what_moc_would_you_love_to_see_lepin_make_next/ This is new for me, and I don't know if this has been done before, but it is pissing me off, seriously! Many of us make MOCS and post instructions for free, others make MOCS and sell instructions - you can have your opinion on each of the two ways to go about this, but a third party openly planning to make money from the work LEGO-fans have put into models for fun and the community is plain disgusting. Have you seen this before? Has something been done about this in the past, or what can we do about this now? Removing LDD-files is an option, but this will also affect people who are fans themselves and would like to build other fans' models with their own LEGO-collection. I see LEPIN actively taking the fun out of MOCing here, and this needs to stop!
  15. So months back I made a fan concept of Nexo Knights, because after seeing that LEGO Dimensions have like 20 licensed theme, while there are only 4 of LEGO's original theme. My idea with Nexo Knight Exclusive ability would be an updated version of the Chi ability (the ability can be used on Chima's altar sense the Knights would be having the same thing). But the update part is depending on the Nexo Knight you have, will unlock 1 out of *insert number of how many packs of NK would have here* Nexo Power from either taking out a large group of enemies, invulnerability, turning the enemies into chickens, etc. Besides just the super strength ability. The concept isn't fully done, I'm trying to think of how Axl would fit in, because his big torso doesn't make it easy. For Clay I don't know if he would be in a level, fun or team pack with Jestro. But here what I have so far: Nexo Dimensions Gateway I wanted the gateway to have 5 of the Knights shield, along with ministatue Merlok next to one of the shield. I was thinking of having all 5 of the knights weapons as well, but I decided to go with the two swords on the side. Maybe there would be a few books and weapons next to the gateway like with the stuff on The A-Team and Gremlins Gateway. Robin Fun Pack The minifigure for the first pack was a choice between Robin, Ava, some random bot, or King Halbert. For giving the pack more ability, I went with Robin of having the ability to transform into Ultimate mode of having target and blowing up silver bricks. As for the model, I thought Merlok having a robotic body rather then a minifigure would be a good idea and fitting. Obviously the first model would be a playable character, with using the Nexo Power and could be the 3nd character to have the Relic Detector (along with that he would act the same as with the books from the TV show). With the 2nd model I though of instead of just the Nexo Power being solely to Nexo Knight characters, the 2nd model could have the ability to give none-Nexo Knights character a sword and shield for the Nexo Power ability. As for the 3rd model I didn't know what it could be, besides from it being a flying vehicle, sadly it isn't the best. I'm mostly disappointed with the front that look like a face. Robin Ability - Fix-It, Mini Access, Transformer (into Ultimate), Blowup Silver Bricks (in his Ultimate), Target (in his Ultimate) Merlok's Robot (treated as a character) - Laser Deflector, Relic Detector, X-Ray Vision, Nexo Power. Weapons Storage (gadget) - Nexo Power (give none Nexo Character the ability to use Nexo Power) Robin's Drone - Flight, Cargo Hook, Flight Dock, Laser Lace Fun Pack I pretty much threw Lance into a fun pack, thinking of having Clay and Axle into different packs, I picked Illumination as the ability that he has from the other Knights, with using his phone of pretty much taking selfies to light the place up. For the models were a pain after making the 1st model that is based off Excalibur Batman's model, Bionic Steed. Lance Ability - Acrobat, Laser Deflector, Illumination (using his phone) Mecha House - Super Jump, Special Attack (Model 2 not named yet) - Flight, Cargo Hook, Flight Dock, Tow Bar The Handsome Man Flying Thing - Flight, Cargo Hook, Flight Dock, Laser Macy and Arron Team Pack I just thought that Macy and Aaron fits together in a team pack out of the other knights. But for the models, I am happy with Arron models with trying my best to have the 2nd model somewhat like the 2017 Arron's Rock Climber while the 1st model is based on the Aero Striker. However beside from the 1st model, I am not happy with the chains, that are just very odd looking. As for Macy model, only the first model is based on the set, Thunder Mace. While the other 2 models aren't my best and I may make a new version of these three models. Macy Ability - Acrobat, Laser Deflector, (maybe Stealth with wearing a dress) Aaron Ability - Flight, Laser Deflector, Target, Grind Rails Thunder Mace - Speed, Laser. Mace Assault - Tow Bar, Laser Macy's Jet - Flight, Cargo Hook, Flight Dock, Speed Aero Striker - Flight, Target Rock Climber - Tow Bar Flying Pod- Flight, Cargo Hook, Flight Dock
  16. hello! At the start of last month I began work on by next project, which is a minifig-scaled model of the "red 5" x-wing that Luke flies in the death star assault. So far I've completed most of the wings and have also done some of the rear fuselage. project album on flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/atlaser/sets/72157676216434583 stage 1: https://www.flickr.com/photos/atlaser/31819163993/in/dateposted/ stage 2: https://www.flickr.com/photos/atlaser/32763745095/in/photostream/ description from flickr: Problem. I am trying my best to make this as proportionally accurate as is possible with lego. Fortunately, using my scale (4 studs = metre, meaning a projected length of 50 studs), the 4-wide cylinder intake piece and 4-wide half cylinder are basicall the perfect size for the engines. Using a top down image of the ILM red 3 studio model the engine width is about 8% of the total length of the model, from nosetip to exhaust. So that is a good basis for the size of the rest of the wings : 6 studs wide from front to back at the laser cannon mounts, and it's already been established by other builders that the 4x2 wedge plate is also almost perfect for the angle of the back of the wings. My main issue with this currently is that the distance between the interior edges of the engine half cylinders is too great. As shown in the photo it is currently a 9 stud gap between them, and if I built a fuselage to fill this gap, it would be much too wide. Using other reference that I've been gathering, the distance between the interior edges of the engines seems to be close to 2 times the diameter of the engines. Meaning it needs to be 8 studs wide. This is really difficult to achieve because the scissor mechanism I have built (which is derivative of mike psiaki's click-hinge scissor but more compact, and using finger hinges so that each wing shuts flush instead of 0.5 studs apart) is based on a central shaft which is 1 stud wide, with the arms of each scissor measuring 4 studs from that shaft to the edge of the engines. Somehow I am going to have to reduce the gap by 0.5 studs on either side. I don't think using a 1x2 technic brick with a centre hole is an option so I will try shifting each engine assembly 0.5 studs inward with jumpers first. stage 3: https://www.flickr.com/photos/atlaser/32839077375/in/photostream/ description from flickr: two steps forward and two steps backward. I fixed the proportions issue from the last shot, but at the cost of the strong scissor mechanism i had before that forced a 9 or 7 stud gap. The new scissor is made out of technic liftarms, but the impossible problem is that to have a gap of 0 LDU between each wing when closed, i had to use part 32530. I just can't figure out how to make a strong connection between that part (on its sides so that the antistuds point directly toward the cannons) and the wing assemblies. I can't lock it in, at the moment they are just attached with snot bricks. It's strong enough to stay attached with minimal drooping, but nowhere near as tough as the previous one. I'm not sure whether to persevere with the old one and make it 8 wide somehow, or move onto the fuselage and concede some fragility. This is the third major overhaul of the wings (first: made 6 long at the tips instead of 5, second: finger hinge scissor mech, third: this technic iteration. You can see the old mechanism in the background with the orange hose through it. I really liked that, simple, compact and strong but egh, it's too wide. The bottom engines have open landing gear doors. I have one set of parts to have the doors open and gear down, and another set of parts (identical to the coverings on the top two wings) for flight mode. I didn't bother with having them retract, and as dmaclego pointed out having the gear fold into the engines does't really make sense. stage 4: https://www.flickr.com/photos/atlaser/32469801403/in/photostream/ description from flickr: I have started on the fuselage. Before that, I decided that I wanted to include a gearbox and gear mechanism for the wings to open and close. Doing it manually is easier but i thought what the hell. I probably have less technic skills than a 5 year old so I decided to reverse engineer dmaclego's creation (see herehttps://www.flickr.com/photos/dmaclego/27832343200/in/album-72157669369597202/For the fuselage, I'm trying to see if it's possible for me to have all 9 surfaces included on my model, at the rear. Currently I have the top 5 attached, the main headache is figuring out how to get the bottom 2 surfaces attached (see here http://www.modelermagic.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/kg-lucasfilm_archived-red3-reference-029.jpg). for the greebling, it's not reall proportioned properly, but I'm trying to include the main details. The rectangular box thing with the circular greebly thing is there, but is a bit too wide. (i also realised after I had already built that section that the circular greebly thing should have the edge part pointing down - i believe this was a unique feature of the red 5 ilm model, but i can't see a way to fix that. you can also see that I got some new parts in so the overall look has improved. I'm quite pleased with how the small "used-universe" colour details have turned out. I think the sand blue, dark orange and other colours adds a lot of character to what would otherwise be a boring, gray mass. (as an aside, those parts also arrived with the final pieces needed to finish the T-70 x-wing, so hopefully I wll be able to properly photograph that soon). And i'm satisfied with the choice to make it gray now - under strong lighting, the LBG plastic has that off white look that the film models did. Still a little bit too dark, but much better than lego-white in my opinion. another thing - for anyone reading this and looking at my photostream - do you like seeing WIP images like this while I'm building something? if you do, please let me know and I'll be glad to post more frequent updates! as always, comments, critique, etc. are very welcome! -------------- as I said, comments, criticism, suggestions, questions, etc. etc. are always welcome. As a make progress i'll continue posting updates to the project until it's finished!
  17. I built my first Japanese themed MOC tp try out some ideas. It's just a smal scene, I hope you like it: Full album: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=568715
  18. “The man desperately scrambled up the rocks, hoping to escape the giant stone hand reaching for him. Golems are not typically hostile, but they are very possessive of things they believe are theirs. The red-cloaked warrior struggled to hold back his enormous pet, and with no small effort shouted some words of wisdom to the fleeing man - “just give him the apple!” -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The final result of this build is very different from the original concept. With little success, I struggled for a while in my attempt to build a complicated bridge on the rock base. I always have table scraps of random things I've built at a whim - one of them was the golem creature. He's not very complex, but he looked so humorous with the odd body proportions and the hammerhead skull, so I've kept him built for a month or two. I finally put him to use! - Loreman The Hungry Golem_2 by The Loreman, on Flickr The Hungry Golem_3 by The Loreman, on Flickr The Hungry Golem_4 by The Loreman, on Flickr The Hungry Golem_5 by The Loreman, on Flickr
  19. Hello! I have been a member for a while and first jumped into Eurobricks with a tread about my Rise from the Dark Ages full of all the things I had be building in LDD. Now I present to you, the locomotive that started my whole enlightenment in the first place. The Union Pacific 4000 class. I chose to number mine after 4017 which is on display in Green Bay, Wisconsin since that is the one I have gone to see. If you poke around my Flickr long enough you might be able to find some earlier versions than the one you see in the photos below. I'm sorry I do not have professional photos this engine made its debut at the last NILTC show this past weekend. They were gracious enough to let me join them. I know some of them took a whole lot more photos and videos than I but here are a few that I have. Coaster was there and it was a real treat to see this run through his custom R104 double cross-over. For some interesting notes: The version in brick is 8.4. That is I have almost completely rebuilt this 8 times in LDD and have made 4 minor revisions. This engine has 2 XL motors in the boiler and is geared to the same as the Emerald Night. BrickStuff lighting gear lights up the head light, the front marker lights, the cab, and the rear red light on the back of the tender. I do plan to do a proper photo-shoot but I am moving soon so it will not take place until some time this summer. In the mean time...enjoy!! I would love to hear all comments and critiques. This next is not very good, but it handles curves just fine. I'm sorry I don't have any videos yet...but I have one and will post it later. I hope you enjoy and I will update once I have had time for a proper photo-shoot!
  20. Hi guys! I've been really into Stephen King's The Dark Tower series lately. So far I've read the first 4 books and I love this saga so much that I decided to start a LEGO project, customizing minifigs and recreating some scenes from the books, but also expanding it and introducing my own ideas and doing cross-overs with other characters from different universes, since TDT could allow that very well. For those who don't know, The Dark Tower mixes the old west with sci-fi and high tech stuff in a world where dimensions are connected by different portals. I am currently sharing my pics via Instagram, Twitter and Tumblr (@Lego_DarkTower if anyone feels like following) but I would love to get your sincere feedback as LEGO collectors, since in social media most of my followers are just fans of The Dark Tower. In order to avoid spoilers, I will share my pics inside the spoiler tag and tell to which book they belong: The Dark Tower I: The Gunslinger The Dark Tower II: The Drawing of the Three The Dark Tower III: The Waste Lands The Dark Tower IV: Wizard and Glass The Dark Tower: EXTRAS The Dark Tower: Movie
  21. Episode1 This is the first day for me after finishing the Academy as a Trooper, ... a Stormtrooper. I have done the one-year junior academy for cadets on Lothal and after that I had the standard stormtrooper training. Now I'm officially a member of the Stormtrooper Corps and I got the code name: TG-0222 I was sent forth Takodana to an Imperial Outpost to serve the Galactic Empire there. I travelled with a bunch of experienced soldiers, so I was the only one 'shiny' , new recruit on that shuttle. The Captain of this facility welcomed us at the yard. He is a characteristic imperial officer, strong-willed and disciplined. Unfortunately the other shipment didn't arrive yet, which means our equipment and blasters are still in crates. Our Officer said we will do repairs and cleaning as technician, until the supply come. Today finally the new shipment arrived, so we're lined up on the yard of the Outpost. The Technician brought the crate with the Captain , and then they started divide the guns to the troops. I was the last in line, so I got the one remaining blaster. Somehow it was a non-standard EE-3 blaster. I don't know how this happened, but I now this is mine. After spend a decent time training, I'm very good in aiming and shooting with this Gun, certainly among the bests at trainings. Anticipated this outpost will be my home for a long time, to serve the Galaxy, gain experience and maybe it's just the beginning of a great carrier...
  22. Hi! Two years ago, I did a motorizable cherry picker for a contest on the french forum TechLUG. So, I used the comments I had, and I decided to : - Use a more little scale - Better proportions - I did a better cab. In the first MOC, it was too heavy because of the battery box inside it. - The first cherry picker was motorizable by a M motor ; this one is only motorized, more simple and efficient. To summararise : Better proportions (I hope ^^) Only motorized I use inverted gearboxes for : - Outriggers - Arm - Turn table And the manual functions : - The steering (of course) - Extension of the arm So, here's the result: The simplest function is the steering. But there is the L motor over it. So, I used three 16t gears to turn the wheels directly by their axle of rotation. And now, the gearbox. It's an inverted gearbox : the "out gears" turn in the opposite sense. So, when you invert the position of the driving ring, you invert the rotation of a function. Here are screenshots: The outriggers can up the truck: the wheels don't touch the floor. To finish, the arm. It has a triple deformable quadrilateral. I needed so much time to do it, but it's nice to see in action. And the video :

  25. Hi all, It has been a long time since I presented my project Dora: German railway gun 800mm. I have now completed the diorama (or at least the first section), I hope you like the result. E 'it completed by 2 SDKF-Z, 1 panzer TIGER, 1 Raupenschlepper. I really like the final outcome, and I hope it's the same for you Full View: Front view: Panzer Tiger 1: Raupenschlepper: Opel Blitz destroyed by aviation: SDKF-z Units:
