  1. Do you know any pirate ship MOCs that intentionally break away from historical accuracy in favor of certain wackiness and cartoonish looks? Most ships I've ever seen appear to be designed as historically accurate as possible, and while I highly appreciate that, sometimes I can't help but think they all look the same. I'd love to see a creation that looks more like a cheerful toy rather than a perfect display model for a change - I'm thinking something in the vein of 70810 MetalBeard's Sea Cow or 7075 Captain Redbeard's Pirate Ship. Bright colors and exaggerated proportions are welcome.

    Unreleased/Cancelled LEGO Sets

    I don't know - and don't care - how high you got, but just for your information, I managed to find the photo I was talking about:

    Unreleased/Cancelled LEGO Sets

    Terribly sorry to bump the thread, but I'm looking for a photo of a prototype set that I've seen years ago and just can't seem to find anywhere anymore. It was incredibly blurry and showed a sorta fairy-taleish castle in a forest, populated by strange minifigures with grotesquely oversized heads that made them resemble chibi characters (as far as I remember, they seemed to have these kind of parts instead of standard minifigure heads). Anyone knows where to find this one?

    Future Castle Sets?

    They could have used a brick with an axle hole instead of a brick with a pin hole + halfpin.
  5. Hilarious! Great job. Yellow works surprisingly well as a background, not any less well than tan.

    Future Castle Sets?

    Then you'd have stairs on the outer side of the wall, lol.
  7. The main reason I disliked the theme is the fact that I'm allergic to furry/anthro stuff. I just can't help it the very concept of ripped animal people strikes me as bizarre and repulsive. Even as a kid I used to be somewhat disturbed by shows like "Biker Mice from Mars", and now I routinely block furry artists on deviantart with the help of a handy browser extension. Besides, Chima was meant to replace my then-favorite Ninjago as the new "big bang theme", and probably contributed to the 2013 "final battle" wave of Ninago being kind of lackluster. Or so I think at least.

    [REVIEW] 41687 - Magical Funfair Stalls

    Camilla herself doesn't seem to come in 41689, only her legs.

    Future Castle Sets?

    From the very moment I first saw the Creator castle, I thought the part of the build right above the smithy, the living quarters of sorts, reminded me of something, but I wasn't quite sure what. Now I know, and can't unsee it: it's a gypsy wagon! Add some wheels and a horse, and it could roll on a happy journey. Well, it already has one huge wheel, so it only needs three more...

    [MOC] The Robots

    I love them! They are all so cool I can't decide which one is my favorite! Is that Robby the Robot one the bottom photo?
  11. Issue solved! Turns out I must have disabled the snapping function by accident.
  12. Since yesterday I've been experiencing an issue with Stud.io that basically renders the application unusable for me. No parts seem to be able to connect with each other except basic bricks&plates in studs up orientation, and even then I have to manually push one brick/plate onto the other with much precision as they refuse to snap on their own. Sometimes the upper brick/plate will lock in a sort of "hovering" position over the studs on the lower one, creating a weird gap between the two parts. Is this a general issue that's going to be fixed by the devs or is it just me? I tried reinstalling the application, but it didn't work.

    Insectoids: the Next Generation

    Ah, Insectoids! A much underrated theme, which I fondly remember from my childhood. Nice job on the remake of its flagship set. The only part I'm not too sold on is the front arms/pincers design, I liked them more how they originally were.

    Vintage LEGO 6018 Battle Dragon !Review!

    I think you've made a mistake here. Otherwise, a good review of an interesting set.
  15. I like the color scheme, but dislike the texture of the sails, which I think would look better without any tiles at the front. Also, I think the gaff sail is the wrong shape - looks like it was cut in half.

    LEGO IDEAS - The Medieval Blacksmith

    I've been looking forward to this set, but now that I've seen it, I think it's no big deal. I'm convinced I could build my own version with the bricks I already own. The biggest disappointment for me are the minifigures - sure, the falcon knights are kind of cool, but the civilians look like they were scrambled together from leftovers. The green buttoned vest pirate torso seems especially out of place to me, like it was put there as a placeholder and someone totally forgot to replace it.

    Looking for some of the wackier pirate ship MOCs

    Curiously, for a while I've been toying with the idea of making an extensive MOD of the Durmstrang Ship myself, but ultimately decided to go for someting bigger than that.

    Looking for some of the wackier pirate ship MOCs

    This looks quite spectacular! If it wasn't steampunk (and if the poor nets weren't cut to make the riggings...), it would be just what I'm looking for.
  19. Still not a fan of it, as it looks hilariously long to me, more like a train than a ship.

    [MOC] Forbidden Island

    Whoa, that's impressive. Shame it's digital. How exactly did you connect the flags to make the tattered sails? Wouldn't they fall apart at the slightest touch IRL?

    Looking for some of the wackier pirate ship MOCs

    Well, I decided to share a WIP of mine, slightly more cartoonish than your average ship MOC. It's supposed to be built on the 7075 hull, which is sadly unavailable in neither LDD nor Stud.io. Its crew will consist of a derpy skeleton captain, two kids, a turtle and an octopus.

    Looking for some of the wackier pirate ship MOCs

    This sure is wacky, but seems to be little more than an extensive mod of the ship from the Spongebob set, and I'm looking for something more creative. To clear things up, it doesn't have to be so ridiculously wacky to the point it barely looks like a pirate ship, just cartoonish enought to not take itself too seriously.

    What is this part?

    These parts are old type skeleton arms, if I'm not mistaken.
