  1. [MOC] Space Submarine

    Cool idea, you could probably attach a wrench or some other tool to the white studs to create little "arms" for it.
  2. Body Battlers: A "New LEGO Theme" of MOCs

    Have to say, after scrolling through the sets without reading anything, I had no idea what the theme was. I would have guessed it was "aliens abducting '50s era people, and by the way here are some weird plants." Now that I've read some of the description to get my bearings...I'm still not entirely sure what's happening, but I like it. I especially like that vehicle that shoots the infectious green missile, it's literally a snot rocket. lol I think the sets could use more little set pieces like the gas station pump and rotary telephone to crank up the '50s vibe, just so the sets aren't overwhelmingly sci-fi with a random greaser and waitress minifig thrown in. Great to see new ideas popping up.
  3. Two modulars better than one?

    Looks okay, the only thing that looks off is the bland section with 4 brown windows. That's what I think about most official lego sets lol
  4. Minifig-scale brick-built animals?

    When did roughly a paragraph become considered "too wordy?" lol I'm also interested in bricky animals, mainly birds and dinosaurs. I just can't make them look good at a small scale >_< Also, those giraffes up there are terrifying!
  5. What makes a great Space-themed bar?

    This looks okay, it's 4-wide without the wedges so I'll prob get rid of those. Suggestions welcome •The trans round tiles are like "laser holo discs" or whatever lol •Blue technic pin represents a selection light Space Bar Jukebox by Henchmen4Hire, on Flickr
  6. (MOC) Space Construction Mech

    I think it looks too stylish and menacing to be a construction mech, but the separators look good. Maybe I just prefer ugly utilitarian mechs lol
  7. What makes a great Space-themed bar?

    @-zenn Yeh, I tried to recreate some beer cans off the top of my head, black is Guinness, there's Coors Banquet and Coors Light (blue quarter tile is the mountains), Bud, etc. Want to make some kegs that look more radioactive or something. @Littleworlds There's a bar I saw that has ropes covering the ceiling, I'll maybe do that but with chains, and possibly hang a piece of Space Police wreckage from them (I'm not into Star Wars but I like Star Wars Rebels enough to work in a ref to them somehow). Or maybe a bunch of engines. I dunno lol. Will prob use helmets and stuff as decoration. I think making the decorations first will let me figure out what shape to make the floorplan. Need a jukebox, lights, a few booths, etc.
  8. What makes a great Space-themed bar?

    Quick tinkering to create some kegs. I would lay them on their side as shown, though I have no idea how I'm going to keep them from rolling. Maybe they'll butt up against a wall so I can peg them to the wall. Nothing groundbreaking here, just procrastinating because the thought of designing the entire bar is terrifying me
  9. (MOC) Constitution Bar WIP

    Hey, I'm designing a sci-fi dive bar and was wondering if you had any tips. Is there a such thing as an "anatomy of a bar"?
  10. Need advice for Tails's Tornado Biplane

    Here's a much more solid build: Shifted things around to make the plane more accurate. Now the wings' studs are aligned with the fuselage so they can connect neatly on top. The bottom wings are built with a big 4x10 plate at the center, so it works like a platform to build everything else on it. Now there's a long Technic axle running through to the nose, all the way to the yellow cone. I like how the red [tiles with clip] look attached to the red [plate with handle]. They aren't necessary since the area they're in is built "normally", but they provide a strong connection anyway. Thinking of somehow using the red helmet for the wheel shrouds. Now to try and make the body look round again...
  11. Need advice for Tails's Tornado Biplane

    I like where this is going, but stability and connection to the cockpit is probably an issue. Back to the drawing board :(
  12. Need advice for Tails's Tornado Biplane

    @Littleworlds Yeah it's wobbly, unless I dab some white glue on the pin Might end up leaving it off @Oky Thanks, I found it in Studio and it's 5.4 studs wide. I kinda like it, it even fits neatly over the entire nose I designed here (though just using the rim is smarter). I don't know, might be too big, I'll keep experimenting. Quick update for the night- I replaced the rear skinny tire with a 4x4 plate, this gives me a big, strong attachment point to the fuselage obviously. These pieces are held together with some technic pins and a bar in the center, the propeller still spins. Here is the start of the wings, they look okay at 2 plates thick, if I make the fuselage thicker they'll definitely need to be at least 1 brick wide, as suggested. The upper wings are 5-wide, I shifted the top plate forward so it roughly has a teardrop profile like race planes. Lower pair are 4 wide and a little shorter.
  13. Need advice for Tails's Tornado Biplane

    Thanks, I'll check that submarine build Yeah, I was thinking of using plates for the wings. I wanted to keep them a maximum of 1 brick thick, so it gives me 3 plate layers to work with. Here's a half-hearted attempt at the nose and propeller, though it looks better than anything I made so far lol: It's 4-wide and lets me add the grey stripe detail by shifting that thin tire.
  14. Need advice for Tails's Tornado Biplane

    Thanks, I'll def flip through MOCs. I like the planes in those sets but I wanted to start the fuselage at about 5-wide at the nose, and part 45135 is too plain. Might have to settle for the 4-wide, maybe I'll come up with something as I go. These are still only 4-wide. While I really like the one on the left, and that I can recreate the grey stripe, the stacked tires just don't look good.
  15. [ MOC ] Mail Box at V City

    I'm curious, did you immediately know when you sketched out this building that it was a great idea? Just from looking at the sketch it's clear that there are lots of spaces to incorporate all the things you added, and they mesh well. I think it would have taken me a few dozen drafts before I got something that vaguely resembled a good looking building like this
