    Future Constraction Lines

    Kind of a left field idea, but it would be amazing if they developed a smaller version of CCBS that was compatible with the Mixel sized ball-and-socket joints. The "bone" pieces could have 3mm bar holes in the same way CCBS bones have technic pinholes, and the "shells" could come in both curvy and boxy shapes. Maybe the humanoid sets could even use minifigure heads/helmets.

    Bionicle 2015 Discussion

    If there is a new theme next year, I'd be interested to see if it centers around the new high-friction towball receptacles. I know that's basically what Mixels is, but they could separate the two lines by focusing on more conventional humanoid characters. Or maybe even produce mini bones with 3mm holes instead of the technic pinholes, and mini HF-style shells that snap onto the towball. Just fantasizing.

    Oh man, can you at least post pictures of the head assembly as soon as possible before you get to the rest of the review?

    Hero Factory 2012

    Beautiful! EDIT: I see on Flickr that you only have 4 reviews planned for now. Any plans to review the rest, or did you buy all the sets you wanted? Just curious.

    REVIEW: 6230 Stormer XL

    I've never bought multiples of a Lego set before, but I may buy two of these (for the parts of course). This is hands-down the best Hero Factory parts pack yet for my purposes, with all those friction joints, new double-sockets, and those neat 3m beams with the center ball. Helps that it doesn't look like a bad set on its own either

    Hero Factory 2012

    Ok cool I guess I'm just more used to the Transformers fandom where people competitively try to be the first to photograph/review new releases. People seem oddly casual about the fact that these are out there and ready to be reviewed.

    MOC: Rosie

    I've been tweaking this MOC for months, and I'm finally ready to call it finished. My goal was to create a hulking and menacing, yet charming beast of a robot with exaggerated, wacky proportions. I also wanted to demonstrate the potential of the Hero Factory building system as well as showcase the new parts themselves. Making it a female was the final twist when I was racking my brain for a name. by Alex Kelley, on Flickr by Alex Kelley, on Flickr by Alex Kelley, on Flickr by Alex Kelley, on Flickr by Alex Kelley, on Flickr

    MOC: Mickey Mouse

    This is a revamp of my previous Mickey Mouse MOC. Changes include a narrower frame, more accurate colors and details, and an all-new set of hands. Very happy with this one. by Alex Kelley, on Flickr by Alex Kelley, on Flickr by Alex Kelley, on Flickr by Alex Kelley, on Flickr by Alex Kelley, on Flickr by Alex Kelley, on Flickr

    MOC: Takanuva

    This is a revamp of my previous "Modernized Takanuva" MOC. Compared to the last version I made, this one is sturdier and more filled out design-wise, and has more accurate colors/better proportions. The hand design may or may not be new, but it's new to me. by Alex Kelley, on Flickr by Alex Kelley, on Flickr by Alex Kelley, on Flickr by Alex Kelley, on Flickr by Alex Kelley, on Flickr

    Rocka: The Golden Boy

    The gold fingers are just from a Bricklink order, not sure what sets they come in. Thanks for the comments everyone!
  14. I could have sworn Lego said that with this update they would allow you to view a parts count of your creation (since that wouldn't be competing with Design by Me anymore), but I don't see that feature....
  15. Since seeing promo images for the Breakout line I've really wanted to make a Rocka MOC that incorporated both of his helmet designs and contained as much gold as possible, and this is the result. The hand design may or may not be new, but I haven't seen it anywhere. by Alex Kelley, on Flickr by Alex Kelley, on Flickr by Alex Kelley, on Flickr by Alex Kelley, on Flickr I know there have been several Rocka MOCs lately, but I actually had this done a few weeks ago (was just waiting on the gold fingers to show up)
