  1. Most of you probably know me for building Batman themed builds, specifically Batmobiles but I do enjoy building other things as well. One of these things is Star Wars. Since I have always had a thing for tanks and since I liked Star Wars I figured that I had to try my hand at creating a minifigure scale version of the Imperial Assault Tank or as it is officially called the TX-225 GAVw "Occupier" combat assault tank from Rogue One. Several other people have already made some amazing creations of this vehicle but sadly all of them are too big. When you look very closely during the tank scenes on Jeddha you can actually see that the tank is pretty much the same height as the Stormtroopers walking besides it. An image in the Rogue One: Ultimate Visual Guide also confirms this plus in the same guide it is also stated that the tank is 1,82 metres in height, pretty close to what I would consider the height of an average Stormtrooper. Massive thanks to Inthert as his kyber krystal container actually served as a major influence for mine. Enough talk lets take a look at some images: While the drivers hatch can actually open it won't accurately recreate the look that the open hatch has in the movie so I opted to create a more accurate method in order to show the driver, basically involves swapping 2 or 3 parts. Lets take a look: As you can see I also opted to use some stickers for detailing on the back as the clean 2x4 pieces simply didn't fit in with overal look of the tank, looks pretty good to me. As stated I tried to model my tank to the movie and as a result it is pretty much as tall as a minifigure. Well, that was pretty much all. I certainly hope that you enjoyed my little tank. (how many of you can guess that reference ;)) If you did please don't hesitate to leave some feedback as it is always greatly appreciated. Thanks for watching, have a nice day :)

    [MOC] 1966 Batmobile

    To the Batmobile! As we have entered 2020 I am happy to present to all of you my latest addition to my Batmobile collection; the iconic 1966 Adam West Batmobile. Until now I held off building this particular Batmobile as there are simply so many great versions out there. However as time progresses Lego continues to introduce many wonderful new elements and with them come new opportunities to recreate shapes that were previously very difficult to capture. With Lego introducing many curved pieces lately I felt that we finally have the bricks to do this sleek machine justice and so I set of building. As mentioned above there are so many great versions of this Batmobile out there that it was pretty difficult to come up with original ideas. While my model is not revolutionary different I believe it does bring something new to the game. I have opted to make this Batmobile 7 studs wide as that was more in line with my previous 1989 Batmobile (their sizes are actually very similar) and based on a model I saw by Flailx, his model was also 7 studs wide and I felt that that looked more accurate to the actual car. There is enough room for both Batman and Robin to fit in comfortably and I managed to include a few iconic elements such as the red telephone and the emergency turn lever. I am most pleased however with how I recreated the wings of the vehicle. It is very difficult to capture them perfectly without making them ruin the sleek aesthetic of the car so I tried something new by using the propeller piece and believe that it looks very nice. I also managed to include an opening trunk in the back with enough room to fit a bat-a-rang and of course the very handy shark repellent spray ;) I am very eager to hear your feedback on this model. Do you like it or are there any areas that you feel I can improve? Be sure to let me know in the comments below. Also instructions are available for those interested; https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-33988/LucasTheBuilder/1966-batmobile/#comments I wish you all a blessed 2020 and stay tuned to this Bat-Channel for more Batman related content. Until next time ;)

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Black Panther getting a new helmet mold is very interesting to me especially given that he doesn't really need it and none of the Black Panther figures had it in the past. Since it would be very unlikely for Lego to create such a new mold without a specific purpose I believe this could be a very good indication that we will be getting a classic Black Panther figure in the CMF akin to his design from the Marvel Superheroes 1 game.

    If the headpiece that leaked truly belongs to Korg it has to be an MCU set. The comic book version of Korg has a different color.

    It already retired quite a while ago I thought?

    No, so far nothing to indicate they will.

    Hagrid is actually the perfect example of the size Korg needs to be.

    Ah okay, sorry, missed that part of the discussion.

    Couldn't Korg be in the Advent Calendar?
  12. TheBrickBuilder14

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Yes, pretty much confirmed it. They state that the calendar will consist of 24 doors as per usual and that it will be a mixture of minifigures and small vehicle/location based builds based on the Marvel Universe. They also teased that there will be villainous figures as well but no specifics as of yet.

    Uncertain as of now. The message until now has been expect 12 for certain but it could be more.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I've been thinking and if we do get a comic based cmf (which I hope) I've come up with a list of characters that I think have a considerable chance of being included; Classic Captain America Classic Iron Man Classic Thor Classic Hawkeye Classic Vision Bucky Daredevil Baron Zemo Moon Knight Agent Venom Gwenpool Dr.Strange Shocker Black Cat JJ Jameson Stan Lee

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Disney owns Marvel I think that is the sole reason for the series being designated as Disney Marvel. Personally I don't see this saying anything about the series in general and what source material they will use.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Based on past CMF's when will we get more concrete information? Like a list of figures or leaked parts etc.

    DC Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Haha. No that would be a little too excessive.
  18. TheBrickBuilder14

    DC Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Could be the other potential numbers are reserved for the Batman sets. (Though this is pure speculation on my part as I don't really know too much about numbers that are out there etc.)

    Give me an official Daredevil and Baron Helmut Zemo and I'm a happy man. Preferably comic based but I'll take what I can get ;)

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Personally I'm hoping that if we get a CMF we will get a comic book based one. The designs of the comic character are far more colorful and as such more appealing + that way you are not limited to just characters that have appeared in the MCU. Imagine getting a comic book accurate Baron Zemo, Hawkeye, Daredevil, Shocker, Elektra etc.

    DC Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Yup, I agree that this will definitely be the suit that Batman wears in the current comic books, pretty much the Hush suit. I do wonder if the hands/legs/cowl will be black or dark blue as I think the hands might actually be the latter. As for the green pieces I believe those are just money tiles which combined with the grey pieces will be part of some small bank vault that Harley will blow up with her detonator. Really happy to be getting what is the best Bat-suit in my opinion in Lego form and can't wait to see some clearer images :) Edit: Just saw the images of the back and the legs and cape are definitely black.

    [MOC] 1989 Batmobile Version 5

    I always strife to improve my models in order to make them as accurate and as durable as possible. The 1989 Batmobile has always been a favorite of mine and while I liked my previous renditions of this vehicle I was never quite fully satisfied. I can finally say that I am as I present to you my 5th rendition of this famous car. It shares a lot of similarities with previous versions but there are some key differences that make it a lot more durable and more accurate in my opinion. Instructions are available from Rebrickable; https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-23893/LucasTheBuilder/1989-batmobile/#details I hope you enjoy these images. Feedback is always greatly appreciated :)

    [MOC] 1989 Batmobile Version 5

    Thanks! I actually imagine that that is exactly how Batman built his own Batmobile. Going through the Wayne Enterprises parts available and re-purposing them for crime-fighting purposes.

    [MOC] 1989 Batmobile Version 5

    Thank you so much! I'm very happy to hear that you like it so much :) Regarding those parts I assume you mean the pistols and weight piece right? If so I would suggest looking at getting the CMF figures those parts came with. I bought them that way and they are way cheaper that way.
