    Can you guess what I'm making? I'll give you a hint: it's a real animal... Just a project I decided to work on to test my skill at building non-CCBS action figures.
  6. The SharkBot robot is built with Lego Mindstorms Ev3. Modified version of Builderdude35's Timmyton 5.5 robotic shark. Features aerodynamic styling, mechanical upgrades, modified programming, and more. Autonomous and Remote Control. Styling change is dramatic. The model is overall much more streamlined. Both the sides and rear are now seamless, filling in gaps of the original model. This is accomplished by incorporating 0% grade panels. Along side of looks, the panels are used for additional structural purposes. Every single panel has been changed for another of different color, size, etc. Many Technic pieces have been swapped out for another of different color. The orientation of the tail is altered. The top of this model incorporates studded Technic, which enables use of slope pieces. Also noteworthy are the fins. Complex connections make up the larger side fins. Tires are of smaller size. These tires are of firmer nature than the original tires, and this model benefits from thus. This results in more torque but slightly reduced speed. Accuracy is also a benefit. Due to problems with the original Timmyton 5.5 touching walls and running into walls at an angle in Autonomous mode, the InfraRed Sensor is moved forward one stud, thereby increasing its proximity away from obstacles when detected. The program is also adjusted accordingly so that there is a reduced chance of this model running into and/or touching obstacles. Technical features: 1 Programmable Intelligent Brick 2 Large Motors 1 Medium Motor 1 Color Sensor 1 InfraRed Beacon / Remote 1 InfraRed Sensor Mechanical Features: Moving jaws Moving tail Tank drive Please again note that this model is not 100% MOC. This model's core is Builderdude35's Timmyton 5.5 robotic shark.
  7. Here is my model review of the Timmyton 5.5 robot shark built by Builderdude35. It is built using only one 31313 LEGO Mindstorms Ev3 set. Technical features: 1 programmable Intelligent Brick, 2 Large Motors, 1 Medium Motor, 1 Color Sensor, 1 InfraRed Sensor

  10. Well another month another MOC! This is actually my first non-steam loco MOC, and, as far as I know, the first Lego model of this loco as well. Produced between 1950 and 1953, the RF-16 was an early diesel electric locomotive built by the soon to be extinct Baldwin Locomotive Works. While the RF-16 is typically synonymous with Baldwin's awesome "sharknose" trim (the main reason I wanted to model this loco), the styling had already been used on the earlier DR-6-4-20 and DR 4-4-15. 160 RF-16s served on the B&O, NYC, and PRR for about 10 to 15 years, though two units were running on the D&H up into the late 70s, and I believe the pair are still stored on some shortline in the boonies today. I've ordered parts to build at least one unit in a PRR black with pinstripe livery (the pinstripe and livery will probably be a sticker) - I would have really liked to do dark red with pinstripes, but dark red doesn't come on nearly enough parts. The part I'm least happy about is the windshield; Lego just doesn't have the resolution and doesn't make anything in the right shape to capture that funny windshield shape. From the start this unit was designed to run on PF unlike my T1 tender where the PF was kind of an afterthough. I've got two M motors geared 1:1 powered by the big battery box. The grate at the rear of the loco is a ladder such that you can shoot PF signals to the receiver behind it. And finally you can see some of the shenanigans used in the sharknose. Since I didn't have to mess with a complicated articulated chassis as in a steam loco, I haven't actually built any of this in brick, so it'll be interesting to see what happens when parts come. I'm also still debating whether to build two A units or an A-B set...
  11. If you were a pirate stranded on a tiny island with a large, scary shark circling around, and could only have 3 objects with you, what would they be? There are only two correct answers to this question. You would either want a bottle of rum, another bottle of rum, and yet another bottle of rum... or you would want a gun, a bigger gun, and an even bigger gun. (Any combination of these two scenarios will only lead to dangerous pirate behavior and the risk of self-inflicted harm.) Lego set number 1492, "Battle Cove" gives us that three-gun island. Our lonely pirate may be down, but he is most certainly not out - not without a fight, anyway. Number: 1492 Name: Battle Cove Year: 1992 Pieces: 26 Minifigs: 1 Sharks: 1 Price: Unknown Availability: USA Only Informative Links: Brickset Set Entry Bricklink Catalog Entry Peeron Catalog Entry Lugnet Catalog Entry Brickipedia Entry Brickpicker Page Today I am reviewing Lego System polybag set 1492 "Battle Cove". Unfortunately, I do not have the original packaging, but I do have a complete copy otherwise. This is a set I received as a child. As such, I must cite the informative links I have placed above as historical records of this set. Apparently, this set was sold only in the USA, and according to some inventories, this set may have only been sold at certain stores or was perhaps part of some kind of promotion aimed at consumers. At any rate, it would seem that this is one of the rarer sets in the pirate theme. The Unboxing Unbagging A fresh copy of 1492 (image courtesy of BrickLink) Imagine receiving the polybag shown above. What would you do? Why, rip it right open and dump out the contents, of course! Instructions (front) The front of the instructions shows the same image as the bag packaging depicts. We see the entire set, complete with minfig and shark against a nice background and surface. As a hobbyist photographer, I really appreciate these old box/instructions photos. The good people at Lego put a refreshing emphasis on their product art. This set being from 1992, Lego has not yet turned to computer rendered artwork, and someone has put together a nice backdrop and foreground to show off this set. Bravo. Instructions (back / random segment) This image of the instructions back side is for completion. The type of instructions with this polybag set is more of a folded leaflet that has two sides' worth of instruction panels. So the "back side" in this case is really just one of the instruction panes (the first one showing how to put a shark together... and a pirate.) Set contents (sans instructions) Here we have all the pieces in this set laid out. According to set inventories, there are 26 pieces. However, I count 27! I believe the online inventories are counting the shark body and head as one piece, however the instructions show how to connect the head to the body, suggesting that the shark probably came unassembled. But enough of the geeky piece count nitpicking. Instead, let's nitpick the parts we have here! We have a decent assortment of colors here. We have 4 printed pieces. We also have 3 guns (one being a cannon, actually). (There is no rum, however. Rum bottles would not be included in pirate sets until the Pirates of the Caribbean line.) A palm frond is always a welcome addition to any collection. A smattering of light gray elements and two 6 x 6 yellow plates finish up this set's parts. These are nice to have. Printed corner wall element One piece that sticks out in particular is the printed corner wall element. According to online inventories, this element is only in 7 sets produced between 1988 and 1995. And of those 7 sets, this set is the smallest (the other six are all above 160 pieces and mostly castle-themed sets). That might make this set a viable way to acquire this piece, if not for the fact that this set was a USA exclusive. United States issue non-firing Lego cannon One interesting aspect of Lego sets released in the USA is that the cannons do not fire. I had no idea this was abnormal from the rest of the world until I was out of my dark ages. I'm not an expert on this minutae, but I've heard it explained that it was a safety concern. I believe that some copies of pirate sets in 1989 sold in the USA _did_ in fact have the pull-firing cannons at first, until the design was tweaked to have the non-firing type. The interesting thing is that the newer line of pirate sets from 2009 had firing cannons, including copies sold in the USA. The dark gray shark Here we have the set's dark gray shark. Let's be honest here: the shark is the crowning jewel of this set. I think we can all agree on that. (Be sure to cast your vote in the poll at the top of this thread!) The Minifigure The pirate (front, back) It seems that this minfig torso always accompanies this particular head, and it appears in 5 different minifigure permutations across 21 sets (all of them "classic" 80s/90s pirate sets). But in each canonical minifigure, the pants are either white, gray, or black, and the fig also always sports a tricorner hat (albeit black or brown). If not for having black pants instead of light gray, we might have been able to classify this pirate as Rummy, the first mate of the Renegade Runner. (For more pirate naming fun, see this thread). Could this pirate in fact be Rummy with different pants? I'm undecided; share your opinion on this matter by replying to this thread! Regardless, we have here a minfig whose head and torso printing are some of the more detailed in the line. I personally think the face print is one of my all-time favorites. You have an eye patch, scruffy hair, stubble, and a pleasing smile. This is part of what makes classic pirates so memorable. Everyone is happy in classic Legoland, and why not? The torso on this pirate is also one of the more detailed in the line, with a jacket exposing an undershirt and a thick, piratey belt. It's also worth noting that this torso can perhaps be put to good use as a bluecoat officer or perhaps some kind of privateer. Let's get building. The Build With so few parts in this polybag set, the build is relatively straightforward. The instructions are nice and simple, without any of the modern-day part callouts. Build foundation After a step or two, we have the beginnings of a wall and our cannon placed down. And after just a few more steps, we have our completed structure. (That was quick!) Island and structure (front) From the front, we have a bit of a fortification wall, our proud Jolly Roger pirate flag flying, and a palm frond to protect our heroic pirate from harmful UVA and UVB rays during his stay. Island and structure (rear) From the rear, we can see that the pirate has a place to hang his rifle. We also note that there are hiding places for pirate loot and cannon balls. It's a shame there aren't any in this set. How is our pirate to make use of the cannon without any ammunition? The complete build Here we have the set all together, including the pirate and the shark. Despite its size, it is an aesthetically pleasing set! For sets of this size, our imagination is really what drives the story here. Who is this pirate? And what of the island itself? Is it an abandoned fort, perhaps? There's enough playablity here to have a fair bit of fun on its own. With a chomping shark, a yawing cannon, and an armed pirate, we have all the trappings of a good pirate adventure. Still, there is room for improvement. A lack of a cannonball or two is a definite oversight, even if the cannon does not actually fire. And the addition of a monkey or some gold would really have made this set fantastic. It's a good "parts pack" at the very least, and a good addition to any pirate collection. There's enough to have a bit of fun with. If price data were available, I believe we would find a respectable price-to-parts ratio. It is also very easy to take elements from this set and add to other pirate sets. The minfigure and shark are easily added to a larger ship, as are the cannon, firearms, and flag. At the end of the day, this is a solid polybag set that captures the freespirited nature of classic pirate sets. I give this set two rusty hooks straight up! Scoring Playability: 6/10 (Minifig and shark fun, but your imagination will do some heavy lifting here.) Design: 7/10 (A reasonably attractive structure given the part count. But an extra palm frond or a monkey would be nice.) Parts: 9/10 (Some useful, detailed parts here. Multiple printed pieces. Good for crew building and armaments.) Minfigs: 7/10 (Relatively common minifig parts. But a classic and one of the more complex face and torso printings in the line.) Sharks: 9/10 (You can't go wrong with a dark gray shark. Point off for lack of additional sharks.) Price: N/A (Pricing is lost to the sands of time. Likely comparable to other polybags of its time.) Availability: 2/10 (Only available in USA! May have been an "exclusive" set only at a certain store.) Final Score: 7/10 (A solid pirate polybag. A good mix of parts, and a welcome addition to any pirate universe.) Uh oh. Looks like our hero is in trouble!... Whew! That was close! Our hero lives to fight another day.
  12. Just found this gem for sale on eBay! http://www.ebay.com/itm/LEGO-PIRATES-2009-6239-6240-6241-6242-6243-6253-BOXES-and-MANUALS-NR-/221693953340? Huge lot of 2009 Lego Pirates sets. If I'm not mistaken, that's practically the entire collection, minus the Imperial Ship. 7 SETS and 27 minifigures. Wow, I'm curious to see how much this will fetch!
  13. After flying around the galaxy for just over a month, Imperial Survey Corps soldier, Lord Tyrus, had finally been told he might have some luck in delivering his 'thank you' message on Mon Calamari. He had absolutely no idea why. Who (apart from the natives, of course) would want to go to that planet? A ball of rock covered to every inch in water. The only way to travel across the planet to the few and far between floating cities was either by boat or by submarine. Apparently speeders didn't work as the repulsorlifts couldn't repel properly on water, but he highly doubted that, as he'd driven his old speeder across lakes on his home planet. That seemed like a lifetime ago. Now he hardly remembered it. He wanted to actually see something other than water so he hired a mini-sub from a Mon Calamari dealer, just by the floating landing platform he landed his shuttle on, to try and see some underwater fauna. That particular sub had large, ovoid windows on either side of it with a good view of the wildlife. He checked the distance from the closest city on the range-finder by the window that enabled him to get the necessary data he needed, without having to go to the main cockpit. There was only a few hours before they got there. He sighed. By speeder, he could go more that 5 times the 50 kph the sub could manage. He didn't bother to ask the Stormtrooper behind him why he was waving. He had got fed up with them after just 10 standard minutes with them. By now, he had just decided to pretend they weren't there, which he would have given an arm and a leg for it to be true. If had looked around, he would have seen trooper 27491 swimming around desperately, trying to escape the jaw of a shark. Trooper 44783, seemed to have not noticed the shark and was just waving at him. Lord Tyrus sighed again. He was nearly at the city now, he just hoped Fett was still there... And a bonus picture: And for the rest of the story, look below...

  15. Hi everyone! I just wanted to share with you my latest MOC and one that has been a real passion-project for me. I'm a huge movie fan and Jaws is probably the film that I love the most. So creating a Jaws MOC is something that I've been thinking about for quite a while. The poster measures approximately 15.75" (40cm) tall, 13.5" (34cm) wide and 5.25" (13.5cm) deep. I estimate the finished model is likely to be in the 3300 – 4000 parts range. It took about eight hours to put it all together and about 20 hours to design in LDD. The water effect is achieved by pouring 1x1 round transparent clear plates in between a solid brick wall and a wall made up of Transparent-Clear panels. The gap between the back wall and the Trans-Clear plates is a single stud. The gap on the left and right is four studs wide. A view from the side where you can see how it sits inside the black 'box' A view from the other side. Dinner time? You can view the full set on Flickr at THIS link UPDATE I have made a couple of tweaks to this piece. The first was a minor change to the top of the 'W' in 'JAWS'. I had capped it off with two 2x2 red tiles but they did not go all the way to the edges, so I replaced the 2x2s with two 1x3s and this makes the 'W' look better. The second modification was more significant and is based on some feedback I received below from Clone OPatra. I was never truly happy with how the shark's nose jutted out over his top lip. To solve this, I made the shark's head one brick wider but kept the nose where it was. This leads to a smoother transition from lip to nose. Finally, whilst I had the camera out, I took the top off to allow for a 'cross-section' view, showing how the various 3D elements look when viewed from above.
  16. Hello, I have created a MOC of the Orca from the classic Steven Spielberg film, Jaws. I was wondering if you could give me your thoughts, opinions on it? http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/62906 I have tried to be as close to the original ship as possible, including getting the sheer and camber of the vessel. Some bits were quite difficult to put in, such as the curved railings heading down to the bow from the pulpit. I also couldn't find a rope on LDD for the barrel on the transom, so I decided to use a chain. Thanks for viewing!
  17. This is a moc I've created. I sort of just threw it together, so it's not based off of any vehicle in particular. It's got the Tatra suspension, and crawls over uneven terrain just wonderfully. When I finished the front I noticed it sort of looks like an older range rover, didn't do that on purpose though. Hope you enjoy the pictures. Hopefully I can put together a video in the next week or so.....
