  1. MEGA Core Vehicle Platform (M.C.V.P) LL 928 The M.C.V.P emerged as the main utility and ground combat support vehicle for OrionBlu soon after the Blue Jacket proved to maintain air superiority over the Sonic Star. The main vehicle, simply referred to as “the Core”, has two multifunction platform both of which may outfitted with different load outs ranging from strong cargo boxes to advanced weapon turrets or tactical recon transports. The Core is fitted with strong armor plating, oversized all terrain wheels with independent suspension and advanced shielding capabilities. The Core is normally crewed by three, a pilot, and two platform specialists, one for each of the two multifunction platforms, but may be crewed by two if the Core is only carrying cargo containers. Most Core vehicles also include a systems robot capable of controlling the functions of any trailing platform attached to the Core. To increase the Core’s utility, a variety of detachable, wheeled trailing platforms can be attached to supplement the Core’s load out. The extensive list of trailing platform load outs range in function from construction and utility cranes to planetary artillery. Over half of the load outs use the same trailing Control Center which may be crewed independently of the Core if the Control Center will be detached for stationary duties, such as use as a fixed listening post or semi-permanent anti-cruiser artillery. The Control Center can be outfitted with the same load out options as the Core vehicle itself, but also has capacity for a number of larger load out components that are either too heavy for the side mount structure of the Core, or draw too much power. One interesting aspects of the M.C.V.P is how it received its name and unique coloration for a ground vehicle as compared to other OrionBlu Corporation vehicles. When initially conceived, OrionBlu’s Master of Ground Operations, Trian Burress, asked his secretary, Rachel Katy, to request bids to “build a new multifunction corps of wheeled, ground vehicles.” In turn, Katy requested bids for a “wheeled core multifunction vehicle”. Burress found the misnomer charming and kept the name “Core” throughout the development process. Once the final design had been complete and manufacturing began, the Lunar Registration Authority (LRA), a galactic enterprise tasked with protecting space fairing design patents, approached OrionBlu demanding they pay the mandatory fees to assign a Lunar Licensing number (LL number) and an additional fee for each Core vehicle already produced to protect the Core’s design from design encroachment. The Lunar Licensing Act (LLA) states: 302.01(a) Design Registration: In order to protect the design integrity and intellectual property of the Galaxy’s citizens, all vehicles used to promote, enable or enhance the spacefaring abilities of the Galaxy’s citizens must: (i) register the vehicle’s design with the Lunar Registration Authority, (ii) receive and maintain a Lunar Licensing number from the Authority, and (iii) pay the fees attached to Schedule A to register and maintain the LL number for all vehicle designs still in use. (b) Registered Vehicles: In order to fund and enable the LRA to defend and enforce design patents held throughout the galaxy, any vehicle with a LL number must: (i) pay the Lunar Registration Authority all tonnage fees listed on schedule B upon completion and triannual for all vehicles still in service, and (ii) clearly display the logo and color scheme of the corporation under which it is registered to ensure design integrity is not encroached. While many believed the LRA fees were excessive as compared to the value received in return in the normal course of business, paying the fees to register the LL number, to register each of the 5,600 Core vehicles in the production run and to paint or change the manufacturing badging for the nearly 4,000 Core vehicles already in service would require a unexpected, crushing capital outlay. Rumors abound pegged a Blacktron bribe as the spark that began the LRA’s registration demand. OrionBlu objected to the LRA demand stating land based vehicles were exempt from the Lunar Licensing requirements as they did not, “promote, enable or enhance the spacefaring abilities of the Galaxy’s citizens” especially because the LLA had traditionally only been imposed on spacefaring craft. In a hearing before the Galactic Authority, the LRA successfully argued in a 9-8 majority decision, that the LLA was designed to protect not only spacefaring vessels but any, “mega vehicular design breakthrough that does or will likely affect the spacefaring population of the galaxy.” In response to the Galactic Authority’s ruling, OrionBlu registering the vehicle with LL Number “928” in reference to the split Galactic Authority’s vote and under the name “MEGA Core Vehicle Platform” to further mock the LRA and the Galactic Authority. While OrionBlu did paint and change manufacturing to comply with section 302.01(b)(ii) of the LLA, OrionBlu decided to keep the red wheel hubs already produced to save capital and as an additional act of defiance over the ruling. Despite industry pundits’ predictions of total financial ruin, OrionBlu completed the production of the M.C.V.P and in a strong reversal of fortune, used the design protections offered under the LLA to sell a number of M.C.V.P variants to other corporations including the well-known Mega Core Magnetizer to the MTron Corporation.

  2. The FireMoth proved to have enough firepower to serve its role as a “cruiser killer”, but after making a successful debut, Blacktron altered its tactics to target FireMoths with concentrated attacks. While durable and stable, the FireMoth’s large wingspan hampered its ability to avoid concentrated fire. Frustrated by the mounting losses inflicted on the FireMoths, OrionBlu enlisted Cerberus Systems to create a new cruiser killer to replace the FireMoth. In the dossier submitted by OrionBlu to Cerberus, OrionBlu requested a ship with the weapons capability of a FireMoth combined with the elusiveness of a Blue Jacket. The ultimate solution was a blending of the cockpit and fire power of the FireMoth with an engine and wing design similar to the Blue Jacket. While officially named the LL 302 “Hornet”, the ship quickly earned the nickname “Fire Jacket” due to the blend of the two designs. The Hornet featured a similar two person cockpit to the FireMoth, but changed the seating configuration so both the pilot and gunner faced forward. The cockpit was also set at an incline to allow both crewmen to see forward without obstruction. This configuration also allowed manual aiming of forward blasters and emergency piloting from the gunner’s position. The Hornet was also the first Cerberus Systems craft to feature automated rear-facing defense weaponry, though the undercarriage mount made the weapon only effective from attacks from directly behind or below. The Hornet was not as powerful as a FireMoth nor as maneuverable as a Blue Jacket resulting in mixed reviews from pilots. Due to the mixed reaction, the Hornet was not a full replacement for the existing FireMoths, only replacing destroyed crafts while FireMoths still in service were not phased out nor reassigned to non-combat duties but they were instead retrofitted with additional shielding and external, wing mounted maneuvering thrusters to compensate for their perceive lack of maneuverability.
  3. It's only got 3 wheels, but fewer wheels means more fun! To go along with the MoonDog, another NCS little guy, this time a para-militaristic trike!
  4. (I call this one the ScarJo pose- just watch an Avengers clip with Black Widow fighting to know why) With a growing fleet of vehicles and ships to service, OrionBlu found itself in need of a way to service vehicles in the field. With environmental conditions often inhospitable and the inability to reliable diagnose breakdowns away from repair stations, OrionBlu commissioned a variant of the exo suit to diagnose, support and repair vehicles in the field. This variant of the exo suit is smaller than spaceport or pure military variations and is designed to emit zero radiation for field work in sensitive regions. The acronym E.S.Z.Ra ( Exo Suit, Zero Radiation), usually vocalized as “Ezra”, is applied to differentiate this exo suit from others. As is common with most exo suits models, Ezras have been adapted over time to fulfill other support and military roles. *True and actual story about the name- I asked my 3 1/2 year old what to name it. We had just watched an episode of Star Wars Rebels so he told to name it "Ezra". I have to admit, not the worst name he has come up with, he told us we should name our daughter "Cotton Balls", so this wasn't half bad! And some action poses: The stern wife pose The Uncle Sam pose The running man pose And the group pose.
  5. After gaining air-superiority, OrionBlu began requiring additional support and specialized craft. The first specialized craft designed was the LL 330 “Grasshopper” often referred to simply as a “Hopper”. The Hopper’s function is as a landing and support craft used to move personnel and light equipment between planetary systems and within a planet’s atmosphere. The Hopper is known to be rugged with strong shielding and heavy VTOL engines delivering a very smooth ride. While the Hopper can take both atmospheric and plasma based weapons punishment, it is not an effective dog-fighting craft having limited maneuverability and minimal forward facing weapons. The Hopper does carry top and bottom mounted medium plasma turrets to ward off enemy fighters or clear ground-based threats. Non-military applications often call for a replacement of the Hopper’s top turret with an advanced communications array. The Hopper also contains two top mounted cargo bays which house tactical drones for ground based operations.
  6. This little guy is the MoonDog. There isn't much to say about it other than it is a quad rover with paramilitary applications. This is my first walk into the NCS ground vehicle scene, though I have 2 more vehicles that will eventually get posted as well.
  7. Well, i finally went and photographed this one. I already took it to the previous LowLUG meet where a lot of people could see it already. I didn't feel like photographing it because it has the wrong canopy colour, and i'm super picky when it comes to that stuff. But i haven't been able to get my hands on one, and i decided to photograph it without it, as it's still a cool MOC and i want to share it with everyone. Enjoy! Be sure to check the full album on Flickr!
  8. Now for something a little different from my normal Bionicle stuff! One of my main goals in building this was to incorporate Bionicle parts into the build in some way. Partly because I had a shortage of system parts but mostly cause Bionicle is awesome.
  9. Back with another ship for my expanding Blacktron 3 fleet. The Strix Patrol Ship has some very complex futuristic magnetic hovering propulsion engines lining its underside, allowing it to perform intricate maneuvers with ease. (They're so complex I don't even know what to call them ) This little guy fits one pilot and is used for surface patrol on Blacktron occupied planets. As with most of my models I planned the ship in LDD before building in 'real' bricks. Hope you like it - more on flickr - comments and feedback always appreciated! LDD concept
  10. Stepping away from Blacktron 3 and trying my hand at Neo Classic Space. I've always loved the smaller "scooters" and other various "patrol craft" type sets (885,891,1557,6803) from the classic space range. Felt it was finally time to build something along those lines... the XT-1 Surface Scooter. Thanks for looking, hope you like it - feedback and comments welcome!
  11. My new space creation in Neo classic space style. All comments are welcome. And some details...
  12. I had to get in on the FebRovery action... Nothing too crazy, but a rover none the less. A little something I did up in LDD for my Neo-Classic Space fleet based off the older little space buggies and rovers TLG released. Hope you like it!
  13. Hi, What to say about it... Well, the suit is inspired by many, really many exosuits or exoskeletons that nearly half of NCS builders have build yet (this one is not sturdy, it needs many improvements), and the HTV (or XL rover) is inspired by this awesome microscale truck: Lego 6950 MIRC by billyburg, on Flickr That's all I wanted to mention before submitting my MOCs set. So, enjoy ;) FULL ALBUM: https://www.flickr.c...57650522772421/ (bigger pictures) I am sure that you noticed, and maybe wondered, that the truck has no windshield. Well, it is caused by that that the needed one I have not, and, what's more, it does not exist :D And, one bonus: (my latest drawing, that might is going to be assembled soon as a MOC with few approximations (but I do not promise)
  14. This is an experiment... probably a new level of "Neo Classic Space Era", a mecha pilotated trough the ment of the pilot that it can stay in a base without any danger to die. Small drones can operate in every condition and can be replaced simply A close up of my Drone CS-1P Link Flickr Link Flickr
  15. A spaceship to carry heavy loads Link Flickr First photo Link Flickr Second photo
  16. I'm loving the current "classic space" trend (Benny/ exosuit) and felt it was time to start expanding my NCS fleet. Presenting the concept plans for my next Federation starfighter: LL-129 'CORVUS' Hoping to have this one "brick-built" soon, hope everyone likes it! - As always feedback appreciated.
  17. What do you think about this?
  18. While everyone else is going big for SHIPtember, I'm building small! My second NeoClassic Space build, a Power Loader style utility mech... the ALPHA-1 Grappler. Thanks for looking, hope you like it - feedback and comments welcome!
  19. Introducing my latest MOC: The NCS Infiltration Viper! This was built as my contribution to Vic Viper Novvember. Originally Commander Grayson of the NCS Star fleet's personal transport, the Infiltration Viper was built when agile space combat ships were needed. It's a favored design by many federation fighter pilots, although it's a very rare opportunity to be able to drive one of these as very few were ever produced. only about 6 are currently scattered around the stars. Well, I have officially created one Neo classic space ship in each of the three color schemes! I call this a success :-) My flickr! You can find my blog at spacebricks.blogspot.com! -Jasbury!
  20. My remake of the 6890 Cosmic Cruiser set from 1982. Thanks ~ Lego Knight ~ for the background! The Cosmic cruiser, although not the fastest starship in the federation, is a useful exploration and transportation vehicle. Its capable of low-altitude travel, and can deploy the pilot's seat as an X-5 Land speeder. As the Cosmic Cruiser is not primarily built for combat, it's equipped with only two front-tipped forward facing torpedo launchers. (I still haven't decided if the gadgets on the wing tips are weapons or antennas...) The federation X-5 land speeder is great for space rides, enjoying the intergalactic scenery, or traveling throughout a star outpost. The federation discovered that if the back engine was switched off, they gave off a very low heat signature. Because of this, they made their first combat appearance on the raid on Spyrius IV deploying soldiers into enemy bases. They were also good for a fast getaway. Their biggest flaw, however, is that they can only fly for a limited time before needing to be charged while attached to the Cosmic Cruiser Federation Starship. Hope you like it! My flickr!
