    Brickworld Fort Wayne

    here we go again, another Brickworld! Brickworld Fort Wayne is coming up quick (2 weeks out) this year will be my first visit to the show. I'll just be an average Joe at this one, but it'd be nice to meet up with some virtually Familiar names. I know its one of the smaller shows but speak up if you'll be there!

    100% exact but Counterfeit Lego?!

    MAB is right, clone brands are fine so long as they follow the rules required of them in their marketplace. Mega Bloks for example is a completely legitimate competitor and a clone brand. personally they don't have anything of interest for me but I won't bad mouth them just on the basis that they are not the Lego Company. there are of course other brands that don't follow the rules, copy designs, trade marks, and any other intellectual property they can get away with. in those cases I don't count them as mere clones, but counterfeit as they are breaching laws, and other moral lines. to those companies I wish only the hottest flames for them to choke on the fumes of their demise. (no mercy here for those who profit from another's labors)

    The Best 2015 LEGO Star Wars Minifigure Round 1.19

    I love the shadow troopers, might be my favorite trooper we've seen so far (and its not canon) but Assajj Ventress wins it for me (finally a non-clonewars styled Ventress!)

    The Best 2015 LEGO Star Wars Minifigure Round 1.19

    going to go Hux this time, the printing is simple sure but the officer's long coat isn't represented anywhere else in star wars figure so he gets a vote for that alone.

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    it is new for 2017, but out in a few sets a large number of the star wars summer sets include a few (arrowhead, and republic tank) along with blue, white, red, and light grey versions too.

    Superbird: The Revengeance

    you can start with mine, but only if you want to, I keep my car clean anyway ;) you'll find cars in this forum don't generate a whole lot of attention even the spectacular ones only get a fraction of a comparable modular MOC. your Superbird though is quite amazing, I love the tilt steering, and the exhaust that was a great use of both types of binoculars. the hidden engine is a neat touch too though an opening hood would have made it more appealing. the only real flaw I can see is the wing, that 6W to 1W is a bit jarring and impractical for a brick build. overall though this is an excellent build, well done.

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    yes, lets kill this fire before it burns the thread up. this is a Fake, openly announced by it's maker to prove a point as to how easy a fake is to make. (you should see some of the other versions with more explosions! hilarious) so until something official is posted by Lego I recommend every image be treated as Fake until proven true.

    Where should the next People at the ____ take place?

    I was thinking people at the Hospital, could make for some great and hilarious prints. like mom over reacting to the child with pollen allergies, or a guy with his head stuck in a fence, im sure it could be done in a child friendly manor. :)

    2017 Speed Champions Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    original posts from the fan sites (brickset, brothers brick, ect) said June 1st. but I've not seen anything about it yet either, and even shop at home doesn't list it even as "coming soon" soon as it is available though I'm getting at least 2 (one to leave as is the other for parts, lots of nice orange bits, along with the "90s star hubs")

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    not confirmation, but in my opinion a huge hint dropped in the carousel reveal video, bellow is a screen cap, interpret as you see fit. (I do apologies if this doesn't belong here, but it felt relevant)
  16. wow really tough, I've a soft spot for Dengar thanks to the EU, but that Ashoka Tano figure is hard to beat.... Ashoka Tano it is.

    [MOC] Aston Martin RB 001

    The Aston Martin RB 001, is a Hyper-car designed in partnership with Red Bull racing and Aston Martin. The performance figures have not even been set in stone yet, but claims are being made that it will lay down LMP1 lap times, and sport a V12 in the middle of this beauty of engineering. also expected is a Track only version which will push it even further, F1 times being the targets for that version. weather it lives up to the hype or not there is no denying that beauty of it's styling. (photo of the car: http://blog.caranddr...03-876x535.jpg) this Lego version is just as sleek and impressive as the real thing. and an extreme amount of care went into this model both replicating as many features as possible and the spirit of the vehicle. i spent several days refining the lines and adjusting almost every part of the car to include as many of the vents, ducts, and other extreme body work details as i could fit in a 6wide+ car. and at a mere 16 studs long and 3.33 bricks tall it is one of my smallest city scale cars to date. but that's not what you are here for you want to see the car so lets get to it! So from this angle you can see just how sleek it is, very few breaks on body line, and everything swoops back in attempt to follow the real cars tear drop lines. (note, the raised rear wing, in this image) the Dramatic side vents are a bit tough to see being black on black, but the lighting on this angle shows just how deep some of the cuts are in the body work. (also wing in its down position, which i find so elegant and is my preferred position for it) rear view of the car, there is very little hear as the body lines pull high to the wing and only a lower lip at the break lights to allow for minimal drag and maximum down-force on the read of the car. top view of the near stud-less car, not a lot to see from this angle that hasn't been shown already and lastly a comparison shot (slightly blurry i hadn't noticed till i was posting it here, will try to re shoot that at a later time) Thanks, for taking a look, and i welcome any and all feed back on this model, I'm probably not done with it myself yet, but its 95% the way it will likely stay. hope you liked it!
  19. Welcome to Gallardo's Garage, here I will be posting up each of my newest city Car MOCs including past cars I've already shared here. the newest car will be added to the end of this first post. Featured New Car: The Dodge Viper ACR (2009) The American Club Racing (ACR) model's upgrades included street-legal racing tires (Michelin Pilot Sport Cups which Michelin describes as "Ultra-High Performance Sport tires"),two-piece brake rotors, adjustable suspension, and significant aerodynamic revision. No engine modifications were made, so power and torque remain at 600 hp (450 kW) and 560 lb·ft (760 N·m) as in the standard SRT-10. The ACR is street-legal! Weight was also decreased by 40 lb (18 kg) by using the "Hardcore Package", without AC, radio, speakers, amplifier, trunk carpet, hood pad or tire-inflator. Its aerodynamic upgrades produce up to 1000 pounds of downforce at 150 mph (240 km/h), or roughly 10 times the downforce the standard Viper SRT-10 can produce at the same speed. The interior was upgraded only by the addition of a beacon-tripped lap timer (Hardcore Edition Only). The Lego version is quite similar, with its aggressive stance, large brakes, and complete aerodynamic package. this Viper is ready to Terrorize the streets of a quite Lego city near you! (well maybe only near me for now). so here it is, The 2009 Dodge Viper ACR, 6w+, 18 studs long! Side view here it is easy to see the large disc brakes. Big thank you to ER0L for showing the tire trick this was adapted from! the signature A-symetrical racing stripes are very easy to see from this angle, running across the entire car length! this last one is for the MOCpages contest, just to prove that yes a Figure can fit in the car completely! (if i remove the stripe on the roof i can give him a helm too) Current cars: KTM X-BOW: (Original thread: X-BOW) Ford GT40 MKI: (Original Thread:GT40) Renault Alpine A442: (Original Post:A442) Pagani Huayra: (Original Post:Huayra) Maserati MC12: (Original Post:MC12) Renault Espace F1: (Original Post:Espace F1) Dodge Viper ACR: (Original Post:Viper ACR) Comments and Critiques are welcomed for all cars!

    Maz Kanata, though I really wanted to pick K-3PO. the uniqueness of Maz wins out over the white reprint of C-3PO.

    [MOC]: Gallardo's Garage (6-wide Cars)

    Nice Pagani, if you are curious my MOCpages has an LDD file you can compare your build to. and I am honored you took the time to build your own. :) Valkyrie, I wanted to call it Valliant, though in my mind RB-001 sounds more fitting of a car of that caliber. you can see my Aston Martin Valkyrie Here (made before the official name was announced) or my modified Porsche 917k from the SC set Here, though that is now out of date as more mods have happened.
