    I really like this taxi and the theme you have created! Love to see this keep going. And instructions/parts list!

    [MOC] BlackTron 2 - Spaceship 1

    Love to see it in a Blacktron III set! Nice ship. I love the colors of Blacktron.

    LEGO Sci-Fi comic book

    Hello. I just read your comic and I loved it. I think you put a large amount of effort in and it shows. The story is great and has everything that a sci fi story should have. I can't wait to see the next episode. I hope it doesn't take long! With that being said, some time may be able to be cut from the construction of scenes you may want to do in the future. It seems that in the first episode you built the ship with the interior and made it a working model. You might save time if you just build shells of rooms or landscapes you need to take the photos then deconstruct or rearrange as needed. I do appreciate your highly detailed models though. The ship is well put together and highly detailed. Another option is doing extra ships or buildings that may only be in one scene in something like LDD. That way you don't have to buy parts and build things that don't see much screen time. I think you have a knack for storytelling and should continue with this project. Keep up the good work!

    Lego alarm clock minifigs

    I'd like to make a mold of the big alarm clock minifigs, so I'm wondering if hair, hats or helmets are removable? And by removable, I do mean by force if necessary! I'd like a generic cast, and the mummy is the only one that comes without something on its head. Anyone have experience with removing accessories from the head of these big minifigures?

    Lego alarm clock minifigs

    I got my lantern figure today. Took it all apart and found out I could take the handle holder out his hands. Also popped his arms out and shaved the tabs off that keep them locked in place. So now they rotate completely! Head turns too. I'm happy with him.

    Lego alarm clock minifigs

    It definitely does. It shows how the arms on the alarm clocks are pretty much scaled up versions of minifig arms. Useful for having multiple poses. I'm on the search for some affordable clocks and lanterns. I think the clock will be a donor for arms since the lantern looks like it's arms and hands are molded in place.

    How to get 300-400 minifigs, variety, dups OK

    I'd say use bricklink and order the heads, torsos and legs separately so you you can pick a wide variety of parts. Throw in some hair and hats to make it fun. Find a local seller to save time and shipping costs. You can grab some minifigs at Legoland too. They may not have 400 on hand and you might end up with many duplicates but you would save on shipping. Another idea is to purchase blind bags of the Collectible Mini Figures and open them for parts.

    Lego alarm clock minifigs

    I like the size of the clocks and lantern mini figures. Or maxi figure? Or mega figure? I'm not sure what to call these. The led dynamo torch is a smaller scale, at around 7.5" high. I think I might go with the lantern minifig. Anyone have a lantern? Can you take the handles out of his hands?

    Lego alarm clock minifigs

    I forgot about those. My search only brought up the smaller led flashlight. The led dynamo torch is a smaller size than the clocks. But I did find the lantern, which is similar to the alarm clocks. But are the lantern figs arm stuck in the up position? That might not be a problem if I can adjust them for the mould.

    Backdrops and ground scenery for sets?

    I think this would be cool, especially for classic sets. It would be a great way to display these sets. I always liked the castle and town catalog backgrounds from the 90's.

    Lego alarm clock minifigs

    That's what I was wondering. Do you know, in the case of Boba Fett, if its all molded as one piece?
  12. Awesome train. Love the Back to the Future theme. It has it all!

    Lego needs more monorail

    The monorail is sorta legendary, to me at least. Never got one but always wanted one. I would welcome monorails back!

    3D Printed Train Wheels

    Very true! Unless you insulate the axle or use one metal and one plastic wheel per axle. You'd need two axles for pickup if you go the later route. Thanks for getting the regular wheel up.

    3D Printed Train Wheels

    I would like steel wheels to replace the standard plastic wheel with the metal axle. I suppose these could be used for power pickup as well on 9v track. I would like the technic wheel for some drive wheels with power pick up. The derailment issue with the small flanged wheel is unfortunate. http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=55423c01&colorID=5&in=A From the Toy Story train

    MOC: Two Space Fighters

    These are cool. Kinda remind me of battle star galactica. Fixing the grey/bley issue will help, but otherwise great work! The sabre needs some weapons or maybe more orange bricks on the "hood"

    Vintage monorail and siding track

    Love the colors on this. It would take a major redesign but a technic pin under the bogies might give you the half plate height to even things out with the motor. But it looks great even with the height difference.

    3d train wheel models

    Any update on this project? I had the same idea to have these cast in brass but I would need a mock up to cast that is 4% bigger to compensate for the shrinkage when casting. Getting the mockup 3D printed would be ideal, just need a file where the model's dimensions are enlarged 4%

    3D Printed Train Wheels

    Legoman666 - I went to your shape ways shop and the standard size steel wheels and steam wheels are not for sale currently. I'm interested in the standard size wheel. Any update on this? And are there any versions of the wheel without the technic axle (the one with round hole for the metal axle?)

    MOC: Egyptian Mummy

    This is amazing. My favorite part is the opening eyes. How about a motion sensor so they open when someone walks by?

    Too funny! Great idea!

    G1700 Cargo

    Fantastic work. I like the custom additions of the lighting and logo stickers. The colors are a good combo, I understand out of necessity, but really look good.

    Kickstarter Custom Lego Minifigures.

    Interesting project. How does the UV printing hold up over time?
