  1. [MOC] R75 "Weevil" High-Performance Racer

    Thanks! Funny you should mention that, the tumbler Batmobile was another not-so-subtle design inspiration.
  2. [MOC] Classic Space X-Wing Starfighter "LL 918" MK I

    Nice work, especially with such a limited range of parts compared to nowadays! Seems like a fun idea.
  3. [MOC] R75 "Weevil" High-Performance Racer

    Here's the first MOC I've posted here, a futuristic six-wheeled race car totally not inspired by the cars from Blade Runner, at all. I don't know what makes you think that. Okay, it kind of is. With that canopy piece, I had to do it. It was even going to have a hover feature involving the front wheel assemblies rotating around but I couldn't get it to work that well, hence the little pin/liftarm bits. I did decide to keep some of those parts in, though, because it created some neat angling and a sort of semi-functioning suspension. "Hey guys, it's Garry again with another Kirkslist find! Seller said it was a... uh, Model R75 race car. Never seen this kind before." "Awfully cramped inside... but the upholstery doesn't smell like moldy bacon this time. Score!" "Vroom vroom." "Nice, tail lights! I think that means it's street legal, right?" "Woah, it can handle pretty rough terrain too. Neat." (Here's that suspension I was talking about.) "Really low to the ground though... not so much going on in the undercarriage. I wonder where everything is?" "Ah, here's the engine! Waaaiitaminute, I remember this, the seller said not to look directly into this part, something about the accelerated particl-" Finally, here's an exploded view of the rear assembly, showing how it's offset. No real explanation for this one beyond "jointed moving parts are fun and this is why I put them in every moc" Check out the full gallery for more views and build details!
  4. [MOC] Alien in corridor

    Woah, nice! Neat build for the alien, and good use of the different dark grays for detailing too.
  5. Fresh from out of my Dark Age...

    Err, well, I never really had a big 'dark age', only an on-and-off interest. Anyway, hello! I am a twenty-something primarily sci-fi system builder from Texas who had his first experience with LEGO around the mid/late 1990s, and is currently trying to get back into the swing of MOCing. Now, regarding the origins of my addiction hobby, I don't honestly remember what my first set was (although a bit of digging could probably jog my memory), but I do have fond memories of the Freestyle buckets, as well as Adventurers, Mars Mission, early BIONICLE, and Town among others. The themes I collect nowadays include The LEGO Movie, Chima, and Creator, but I'm not terribly picky. Not much more to say beyond that, unfortunately!
  6. Serious Play - What's this

    AFAIK, they're intended for corporate team-building exercises, and they're really not a very good value if you intend on buying them for parts.
  7. [MINI] Dragon

    Really neat idea, and I especially like the wing function. Bonus points for being one of the only Technic animal MOCs I've seen!
  8. MOC: Kitchen (made by my wife)

    Nice work, and really cool detailing! Especially that microwave and the curtains.
  9. Your dream Lego theme

    A more fleshed-out Disney line beyond just the princesses would be nice. One particular idea that comes to mind are Legend Beast-style models of the various monsters and non-human villains, such as Ursula, the Hydra, dragon-form Maleficent, Scar, etc.
  10. MOC - Pasture Disc Drill

    Nice! Farm equipment seems to be pretty rare in MOCs, for such an important part of a town or city.
  11. Builders Block

    Personally, whenever I get builder's block, I force myself to build. No theme or shape in mind, I just throw stuff together until I come across some combination of bricks that looks neat and then inspiration strikes. Works for any kind of creative block really, at least for me.
