    MOC benny’s gundam- Gundam Benbatos

    That's amazing, are you going to Ideas it?
  2. Totally agreed with this. If I find a minifig with a great part that I need but still want to keep the original intact, I end up looking for a spare on Bricklink or in a less expensive set.

    TIE Fighter & TIE Interceptor - 2021 remake!

    Dang, these are beautiful! The use of the grille bricks on the TF wings is extra slick.
  4. I got similar feedback on the official Studio forum, which makes it even more frustrating I can't just pre-embed the ones I want. Now the problem is....any idea how I can get custom parts from a standard LDraw installation into Studio in the first place? Putting files into Studio's "Custom Parts/parts" folder causes them to appear in the custom palette, but at least u9251.dat and its variants won't actually render in Studio after I do that (and I did take care to also copy the subfiles into s/). Putting files into Studio's "UnOfficial/parts" doesn't cause them to show up anywhere, as far as I can tell.

    [MOC] She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (WIP)

    Yeah, the Elves aesthetic is pretty on-point for a lot of Etherian stuff (my wife and I collected the entire dragons lineup too), but the gold is still pretty scarce afaict. Cool, thanks for the recommendation =)

    [MOC] Medieval Tavern

    The scales are really well-matched!

    [MOC] She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (WIP)

    Hmmm, interesting point, and too bad because while Mega Construx blocks are "ok" these days, it's no fun buying character-oriented sets that don't match the scale of minifigures. Like a lot of my projects, a bigger limitation than scale to a physical rendition is going to be the outrageous color palette, and toning that down somehow doesn't feel right for a She-Ra build either. I had the advantage (or disadvantage, I guess, depending on perspective) of watching it with very little previous exposure to the mythology (basically only osmosis + a good chunk of the live action movie) so I was only comparing it to other entries in the genre rather than to other incarnations of itself. Totally agreed that splitting into a "boys" and "girls" licensing scheme is a stupid decision.

    [MOC] She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (WIP)

    Oooh, that looks interesting, I'll definitely take a look =) There's an unofficial version of 92944 here (there is a *lot* of buried treasure on that page, btw, if you are into LDraw and use a lot of weird/new parts). Often stuff that hasn't even made it into the Parts Tracker for even preliminary review, but which has been automatically converted from LDD.

    [MOC] She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (WIP)

    Entrapta's hair is easily the part of the execution so far I'm most pleased with. Thanks! I'll definitely post updates in this thread, glad it's picked up some interest. I don't discriminate in my loves of fantasy and sci-fi, or mashups of the two, though I prefer mashups where the two can exist side-by-side or interact with each other, rather than the Clarke's 3rd Law version (fwiw, I think the finale of nu-She-Ra actually does confirm that magic is real and the ancient technology was to channel it, not purely the source). As an aside, nexo-knights are for me easily the biggest let-down of any modern original LEGO theme, because the premise was so cool and the sets were all just so....bad. Ooooooh, thanks for the suggestion!

    [MOC] She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (WIP)

    Thanks for the kind words and the suggestions! I think to build something custom for either the flying buttresses or the wings on the steeple and have it feel right while not being too flimsy, I would have to about double the scale of the model, but at least on this attempt I'm trying to keep the part count under control so that if I end up submitting it via Ideas it's not so outrageously large that it has no chance of making it through review (similar thinking behind using the big UFO saucer sections on the face of the mountain rather than getting super detailed with the sculpting). That said, I won't rule it out, and I'll keep mulling it over to see if something comes to me. Two questions: (1) Do you think the wing motif would look better if rotated the Chima wings to point upward, rather than outward? I'm wondering if it's not so much the scale that's off (at least relative to the rest of the steeple) as the positioning... (2) I'm mostly pretty pleased with how the minifigures came out, but I don't love Scorpia's claws. Any suggestions for a better part or combination of parts to use, ideally so I could capture the lower half of her pinsirs?

    Thanks for sharing =)

    Cedrica City Block(Picture heavy(A))

    Also reminds me a bit of the multiple layers of buildings in the area of Edinburgh where Victoria Terrace runs along above Victoria St (switch to the 3D view here).
  13. It was suggested elsewhere that I share some of my models on Bricklink Studio Gallery as a way to try and draw interest to my LEGO Ideas project, but I'm running into some problems with Stud.io missing parts and being unable to handle custom parts bundled as subfiles due to ignoring geometric primitives. Presumably I could move some parts into Studio's Unofficial parts folder, but it seems like that would then not visualize correctly if shared via the Gallery. Any suggestions on possible workarounds?
  14. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll give that a shot - I modeled it in Bricksmith for the lsynth support on the rigging, but I think I can probably add the rope primitive as a subfile and see how it goes.

    LEGO Sci-Fi 2021 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Tron is "cyber" but it's not really cyber-"punk" (although the second one leans a little more that way). Blade Runner, Neuromancer, Snow Crash + The Diamond Age are all much closer to the spirit of the genre (probably could include The Matrix in that list too). Ninjago definitely has a bit of that feel as well, though obviously toned down a lot for the audience. Hackers is undeniably both "cyber" and "punk" but by virtue of being modern day (at the time it was made) doesn't really have the dystopian vibe usually associated with the genre. [edit] I might say that the relationship between "Hackers" and the cyberpunk genre is similar to the relationship between "Fanboys" and the Star Wars series (or maybe even "Galaxy Quest" to Star Trek). It's by and for people who are in love with that culture, but it's also a bit meta and thus outside the genre.
