    The Call of Cthulhu

    Thank you for your notice Jim, but how exactly is "talking about your project and putting a link in it" NOT a promotion? I will change my post according to your advices on sunday if that's OK, since I don't have much time during the week at the moment... :-( Just updated my post - hope it's OK now.

    The Call of Cthulhu

    Just released my "The Call of Cthulhu" project on LEGO Ideas yesterday :-) As a big fan of H.P. Lovecraft's mythology I decided to build a set based on his short story "The Call of Cthulhu", which was released in 1928 and might probably be the most famous tale by this author. About the scene (might contain spoilers for those who haven't read the story yet): The scene of my model depicts the arrival of the norwegian sailor Gustaf Johansen and his crew in the city of R'lyeh which was built by alien beings aeons before humanity inhabited the earth and is described as a cyclopean city of titan blocks and sky-flung monoliths (decorated with strange runes). It was sunk to the ground of the ocean, where Cthulhu (an ancient alien being) had to wait for the stars to align the right way so R'lyeh would rise again to the surface. While exploring the ancient ruins the sailors accidently release the "Great Old One" from his prison and try to escape aboard the "Alert", a derelict ship, that was discovered by the sailors earlier... About the Minifigures: I've tried to build LEGO versions of this mighty "Old One" before but only the release of the 13th series of LEGO's "Collectable Minifigures" provided the minifigure-squidhead I was waiting for since it perfectly fits this creatures Appearance! The combination with the wings of the 14th series gargoyle, the 15th serie faun's legs and the 16th series little devil finally rounded up the list of needed parts to complete this awesome minifigure (although it would be great to have a more dinosaur-like tail like the 5th series lizard man - wich sadly can't be combined with the wings). To represent the sheer size of Cthulhu I used the minifig-trophy-statuette of the 9th minifigure serie's "Hollywood Starlet" for the sailors. They represent Gustaf Johansen and two of his frightened crewmen. If you like it, please support it! You might also be interested in my other projects like the life-sized human skull or my RPG boardgame.
  3. Just played around with some ideas for a new hexagonal part you could use for tabletop-games like "Settlers of Catan" etc. By the way: Please support my "Life-Sized Human Skull" project on LEGO Ideas (if you haven't done jet)! :-) https://ideas.lego.com/projects/142026 Thanks! --- UPDATE 01 --- Some more experiments with my hexagonal building bricks... @DraikNova: As you see above you can easily extend the distance between the "bases" by inserting plates or bricks inbetween them (so you could easily place a 4x4 round plate or brick on top of them). By using bricks with side-studs (as the green one in the bottom-left corner) you could also add extra playfields you could step or build on. The spacing betwen the hexagonal bricks would also allow to make "impassable gaps" (as you can see at the blue brick on the right side). --- UPDATE 02 --- Slightly updated my design by "drilling" holes in the side-studs and changing the connection on top of the brick (1 stud instead of 4, so the 2x2 round plates can rotate freely). As Eurobricks-user Philo mentioned there might be a little problem in connectiong the pieces directly, but if you build "bridges" between them, the connection should work just fine - and you can also place different bricks on the inside of the triangular spaces (in this example a 2x2 round brick with plate on top).
  4. Hi all! Just uploaded my life-sized human skull to LEGO Ideas! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/142026 It would be great if you could all support my project and help it reach the 10.000 supports goal! Thanks a lot to all of you!

    LEGO Dimensions Cthulhu Fun Pack

    They should produce a whole "Horrors of Lovecraft" Theme as replacement for the "Monster Hunters"... That would be so awesome!
  6. Just messin' around with some ideas... ;-) These are the parts I used:

    Thanks! Added some additional views today
  8. A dwarven hammer I built out of LEGO-bricks. It has a width of ~39cm and a length of ~106,5cm.

    Retro Robot

    After buying one of those new Airjitzu-Flyers (LEGO Ninjago) I was wondering how to repurpose that new "dome" - Then I had an Idea...

    H-Block of Puma Punku

    Yeah, it was one of THOSE documentaries... But the reason I've built the LEGO version was, that I'm fascinated by the simple but yet perfect design/shape of the blocks - whether it was built by aliens or not...

    [CB] Post-apocalyptic Landscape

    I absolutely love it! Definitely want to see more pictures! :-)
  12. After watching a documentary about Puma Punku, I decided to rebuild one of the famous H-Blocks with LEGO-bricks. I tried to build it as small as possible (2x4 brick for comparison) without losing too much of the original measurements/aspect ratio...
  13. Just played around with some intersecting-cubes-design... More pictures of my creations can be found on my homepage!

    Futurama's Bender Minifigure

    Neither of these programs. I used "Rhino 3D" to model this minifigure. I'm planning to do a whole "16 Minifigures Series" of Futurama characters. Thanks for the compliments

    Futurama's Bender Minifigure

    After the release of the Simpsons house and the first Simpsons-Minifigure-Series last year, I thought that it would be cool to have some Futurama-themed LEGO sets/figures as well. So I designed a Bender-Minifigure. I had to adjust some of the parts to fit the LEGO-pieces (like lifting the foot-pieces, upscale the hands and fingers, etc.). Most parts are ment to be made out of "normal" plastic (ABS). The legs, arms, fingers and the antenna should be made out of semi-hard rubber (like some of the tooth/horn pieces).
