    2024 Space sets

    Well I really hope for regular sets instead of GWPs that have anything with new minifigure aliens. If they're brickheadz, I really don't care tbh. One thing I was thinking for the swappable heads on the possible blacktron set is we could see normal human faces, as well as alien/mutant type faces like from the Galactic Bounty Hunter

    Odd-Figs Do you like them?

    I've got a nostalgic attachment to the Mars Mission figures, although I do like the Commanders Much more these days (Articulation ftw) I do see most odd-figs as less valuable than a minifigure, and I definitely would prefer dreamz had more minifigures. The Nexo Knights robots were a better medium in my opinion, as they were brick-built and articulated rather than the limits of most odd-figs.

    [MOCs] Legacy Speeders

    Time to catch up on the summer months! June - Dovadian Speeder 4 vectored engines, forward blasters, and a side mounted seat. It's go time. This time around I decided to try something new with a sidecar style mounted seat. This model uses Dove Blue, Dark Grey, & Sand Blue Metallic. 3D View July - Nykra Alpha Speeder Operable on land or underwater, the Nykra Alpha series is a reliable workhorse for single operator transport. The anchor portion of this build was originally a microscale building topper, but I like it much better here. Some curling ammonite inspiration as far as the side design. This model uses Royal Blue, Dark Grey, Transparent Fluorescent Yellow, & Sand Red. 3D View

    [MOC] Snapshot Memories - Vintage Camera

    Thank you Pep, glad to bring back some memories! Thank you!
  5. Snapshot Memories Last year I started designing a model of a vintage film camera, not based on any one specific model or company, but trying to capture the primary features of a classic SLR. During the design process I wanted to integrate something to make the model more than just "another camera", which is where the idea came to include little vignettes or memories as I've come to call them that fit inside the camera. The back of the model opens up to reveal a film canister and the slot for a 4x8 vignette. The viewfinder also has a slot behind it for a printed tile representing what is being seen through the lens. Originally all of the vignettes had minifigures as subjects, but I decided to diversify and settled on the current lineup. From left to right, we have a mountain sunset, birthday celebration, spoiled pets, and an anniversary dance. I'd like to make more vignettes that cover different photography niches, but thought this was a healthy number to start with. Thanks for taking the time to check the model out, it can be seen in 3D on Mecabricks and if you like the model, it is also on Lego Ideas
  6. I went with Deep Freeze Defender and Mission Commander. Would love to see new M-Tron content, but the Stellar Recon Voyager isn't the sexiest craft.

    Thanks! Thank you! Thank you for such high praise! Once I saw how the cape looked on this minifigure I knew the render had to be fast.
  10. Excellent work, especially using the octagonal tubes!

    Thank you all for the kind words, I'm happy to see that everyone has their own favorites. Time for another bike! May - Pramlocity 4000 The fastest ride you can buy with limited fine motor skills and vocabulary! This one is definitely one of the more out there models as far as this project goes (so far), but I had a lot of fun with this one! This model uses Medium Green, Dark Grey, Light Grey, & Transparent Fluorescent Yellow.

    So it is, thanks! Doesn't show up in the set inventory for me, weirdly enough.

    Excellent work Z, such clean styling all around and great flow between the wood and stone sections.
