    Brickworld Fort Wayne

    I'm going, sometime around noon. I'll be the teenager with kinda long hair, probably wearing shorts and a Lego Star Wars shirt, if anyone wants to say hi. I probably wont recognize you though, the only EB member I've met in person was Hinkley.

    If LEGO wasn't draining your wallet....

    Build myself a new computer. My laptop was crappy even when I got it a few years ago, and Im sure just from the money saved from not getting any new Lego for a single year I could build myself a very good gaming computer.

    MOC Arrow 373i

    Looks good. The curves on the front part are just perfect, the way those cones and flippers fit together.Those side parts with the gold thing are interesting also. The cones on the back of the vertical fin look kinda odd though, I think it might look a bit less distracting without those.

    Kre-O to release Star Trek Sets

    Ick, that just looks terrible. And those minifigs Actually on the poster someone posted above it says the sets are coming out 2013, and after a quick googleing I found that there is a new ST movie coming out sometime in 2013 (Well, hopefully thats a good thing... The 2009 movie was ok, but I'm still unhappy about them going and changing history.) So they will have at least a couple new ships to work with probably. Plus sets of individual rooms, that laser drill thing, etc. They have plenty to work with I think.

    Show your Sci-Fi Displays and Collections

    ^That... Thats all your stuff? I've seen some pretty big collections, but thats certainly on the upper end of the size spectrum.
  6. I have a big roll of white paper (and blue paper, which I use occasionally) that is taped to my wall and table so it curves slightly. Then I take the pictures, edit out anyhing too distracting in Photoshop, and post it. I'm thinking about getting something shinier to to use as a backdrop though, since I've heard that makes whiter backgrounds.

    War of the Worlds Tripod

    Thats pretty cool, the legs look great. The head needs some work, as mentioned, but it's not that bad. The cracked road looks nice as well.

    Uses for Flick-Fires

    Greebling,guns, parts of minifig tools, and an alternative to those 1/2 length technic pins with a stud on the end.

    Most Insane TRU markup ever?

    One time they showed one of those little Star Wars planet sets as being 50 USD, but it turned out to be a computer error. Never had any noteworthy markups that weren't in error though.
  10. Sets stay together until I need parts from them. Sometimes if its a set I really like, and I only need a few parts from it, it will stay together and I will just modify it a bit to work without whatever part I took. If I need a lot of parts from it, or just don't think its that cool of a set, I'll just take it apart completely. Same thing with MOCs. Some MOCs stay together for only a few days, and I have others that have been assembled for over a year (Though many of the older ones I've modified over time, fitting in new building techniques and parts and such to improve them, so I only have 1 or 2 that are over a year old and still unchanged. Big sets are a bit different though. I always keep my largest set assembled, until I get a bigger one. Currently its the Tower Bridge, before that it was the Death Star playset. With big MOCs, though, I will probably take those apart pretty quicky after photographing them and such, since they are so part consuming, and take a lot of space. My SHIP I'm working on now will probably only survive a month or so past finishing.

    LEGO Executive Jet

    Very interesting, I wasn't aware they had their own jet. That set looks great, too bad its an exclusive one...

    Galaxy Patrol Minifig - Possible MOCfodder Kits

    Some of the Star Wars sets have had a lot of dark blue (though Im not sure if they are still out, I dont pay a lot of attention to sets these days), and would also have plenty dark grey. The new Lokis Cosmic Cube Escape set from Avengers has a lot of dark blue. The pharoahs quest sets from last year had some, but not a whole lot. And the Agents theme from a few years ago had a lot of it. Dark grey can be found in a lot of sets, particularly Star Wars (though light grey is more common). Of course, since most of the sets with a lot of dark blue seem to be out of production, and would have to be bought used anyway, it would probably be easier to just buy the parts on

    MOC: Alien Egg

    Oh, thats kinda cool. The dripping stuff is nice, and the floor design is a good touch. Now just make a flamethrower to go with it, and its perfect
  14. You might be able to use this, but its about $0.20 each on bricklink, so it could be a bit expensive...

    Is moonbase dead?

    I haven't seen anything done with them recently either. Kinda disappointing, moonbases are pretty cool.
