  1. MOC series: Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire

    I have some ideas for the Leviathan first, it would use a mixture of Bionicle parts and regular Lego, and would include a micro Ulysses and a stand to show it 'swimming' As for the ulysses itself I imagine a model comparable to the helicarrier, but that project is a long way off for now ;) On an unrelated note the digger has recently passed the threshold of 100 supporters so thanks everyone!
  2. [MOC] Tiger 1 Tank

    Looks great!
  3. Single Pane LEGO Licensed Theme Funnies

    These are all great :D Btw I love the modernised Lego Zuko with the new hair part
  4. WIP - LotR Helm´s Deep (minifig scale)

    Jumping Gimli is so funny! Great model, can't wait to see it finished
  5. Anyone have any luck making a flail?

    You could try using parts 48729 and then the recent element 25893? Perhaps experiment also with part 20482. Another choice might be the fishing line/string which has the bar at one end. I agree there is nothing quite ideal yet!
  6. Your dream Lego theme

    I commented a while back on this thread regarding my dream LEGO theme, Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire. Since then I went ahead and made a wave of 6 sets for myself based on the movie in the style of official sets. They are all rendered in LDD. If you are interested you can view them in detail in the thread here: http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=139312

  9. MOC series: Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire

    And now for the grand final: 06. Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Mole's Digger One of the most iconic machines from the film is Gaetan "Mole" Moliére’s tunnelling earth Digger. A massive vehicle like a tank or locomotive with a huge spinning, churning drill at the front with many teeth. This vehicle is by far the largest of the expedition convoy and was used up until the discovery of the city, it is also my personal favourite My design of this set features the following: Milo Thatch, Gaetan "Mole" Moliére the expeditions’ geologist, Audrey Ramirez the expeditions’ mechanic, an expedition solider and two mask-wearing Atlanteans including Princess Kida as minifigures Rubber tank-treads at the front of the vehicle that turn as the digger moves forward The large rear wheels are attached to a differential and drive the drill rotation. This is engaged by a switch on top of the back of the digger As the digger moves forward the front section of the drill rotates counter-clockwise and the rear section rotates clockwise by means of a technic turntable The top of the front of the digger has storage compartments for two tool crates The roof of each cabin can be removed easily for playability The rear engine bay can open up to reveal valves and dials The model contains approximately 1300 pieces. If you like this creation I would greatly appreciate your support for it on LEGO IDEAS here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/151810 I'll post some group images of all the above together in various configurations and then might have a go at creating something even bigger from the movie Thanks for your feedback and all your support!

  11. MOC series: Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire

    Almost done! 05. Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Balloon Battle This set builds the climactic battle of the film, centred around the ‘Gyro-Evac’ balloon which Rourke and Helga try to use to steal Princess Kida and the crystal. They aim to use the shaft of a dormant volcano to reach the surface with their treasure, but not if Milo, the expedition specialists and the Atlanteans can stop them. The set includes the balloon and four additional vehicles and many features: - Minifigures included are Commander L.T. Rourke, Helga Sinclair, Milo Thatch, Audrey Ramirez, Joshua Sweet, Princess Kida (crystal form) and two expedition soldiers - The ‘Water-Vat’ tanker truck is modular in construction and the tank on the back opens up at the top just like in the movie. The space inside is sufficient to contain the crystal chamber, plane and some other accessories. - The troop transport truck has a winch to load up the crystal chamber to take it away from the city to the volcano shaft - The crystal chamber opens up to put the Princess Kida minifigure inside - Recreate the aerial battle with the plane and flying ‘Aktirak’ stone-shark - The balloon has six spinning propellers and many bombs which can be dropped Size comparison of the different machines in this set: The model contains approximately 1140 pieces. This set can be supported on LEGO Ideas here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/151798 One more to go, and if you have seen the film you may be able to guess what it is going to be!
  12. MOC series: Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire

    Yes I read about that in the rules, so I was carful to word each item as a stand alone project, so the situation is the same as others who have submitted several projects from the same theme.

Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Firefly Attack This set is based on the scene where the expedition camp is attacked in the night by a surprise swarm of fireflies, creatures that set fire to the tents on contact!
