  1. Hey everyone :) I am currently working on a building-storytelling project of mine ( for Factions over at the star wars sub-forum ) and I'm in need of some decals . I have searched both the internet in general and Eurobricks itself a lot to find someone to make decals for me ( In exchange for payment of course ) and I haven't found anyone ( that is still active and will answer messages at least ). Is there someone here who does decal commissions ? If not , do any of you guys know any person/ service that would take said commissions (I only need jpg's/png's/whatev's of the decal , I don't need it printed or anything of the sort as my creations will be digital ) ? Also , if this post should be elsewhere or doesn't belong here , I apologise , please move it / alter it where/how ever you need to . Thanks to everyone in advance, I am really eager to share my story and builds with you when I am done with both builds and figures !

    Decal Wish List

    Hello guys , I am currently working on my character for Factions ( the SoNE sequel ). All of my creations will be digital so I need some decals for pieces that already exist in real life. Specifically , I am in dire need of this Jedi's clothes ( torso , hips and legs ) , and the new Captain America head , but with a black beard instead of a brown one ( maybe the highlights that are a lighter brown could be dark bluish grey ? ). I only need the primary , serious expression , since my character won't be exactly the slapstick humour type , but if someone had the extra time and will I could use an alternate expression with a raised-eyebrow-type small subtle smirk. In any case if someone was kind enough to do any of the above i'd be forever grateful and would give them credit in every factions story to come . Thanks in advance !

    [MOC] Batmobile : The Predator

    Yeah , brickshelf just needs its time , it's downloadable if you check now guys , so @Rustinidiel's villains are in for a treat . I'd love to see pictures if you guys go ahead and build it ( and I'd appreciate credit if you happen to use it anywhere which I would love ).

    [MOC] Batmobile : The Predator

    @terryfay1983 @LegoMonorailFan , Thanks for your comments guys ! I'm honoured @Gerechtigkeitsliga I'm actually working on a scuttler type vehicle that transforms into a batwing right now ( kind of like the Lego Batman Movie ) @the imperial reporter I can cook a quick ldd file up if that format is convenient for you

    [MOC] Batmobile : The Predator

    @TheBrickBuilder14 Thank you so much ! I am a really big fan of your vehicles as well so it means a lot ! A minifigure can actually fit inside (barely though) , although sadly not with the Batman cowl used for the Lego Batman Movie Batman ( the BvS short-ears one fits just fine though). I am also happy to say that Race mode can be "locked" so that the wheels don't spread out when you play with the car ( as I said playability was an important factor in this ). @JACKATTACKS , @Master_Data , @Actor Builder , @Chookdude Thanks so much guys ! It really means a lot !

    [MOC] Batmobile : The Predator

    Hello People :) After all this time I’m back with a new creation . The reason you haven’t seen anything for so long is because I went through a process of rethinking the way I build . I used to mainly recreate models from Star Wars or DC comics , with a sole purpose of making the MOC look as accurate to the original as possible , sacrificing stability , playability and overall good structure most of the time . I was no longer satisfied with that . From now on my goals are to build MOCs that both look good , and also are fun , playable , contain smart play features and generally function well as toys. The first result of this “new style” is what you see below : my own original Batmobile. While it draws inspiration from a couple of Batmobiles ( mainly Arkham Knight’s and BvS’s) it is my own spin on the classic vehicle , the Predator . It’s packed with action features : a stud shooter turret , a “hook” style spring-loaded shooter, opening trunk with all the gear you’ll need ( batarangs , a new remote batarang made from some old knight helmet feathers , extra ammo and a line launcher ) and the ability to transform between two modes , one ideal for battles and one built for speed. Also, the turret can be swapped out for a winch , which can be attached to the front spring loaded shooter and then shot - you can catch enemies’ vehicles , bring down walls , shoot it towards a roof and then climb , the possibilities are endless. I have also built a display MOC for my Batmobile - which is the first segment of what will eventually become a full Batcave . It has working lights and spins slowly - as a car turntable should. I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on this . Do you like this new style of building ? Do you like the look of the car ? What about the functions ? Do you want to see a full Batcave ? Your comments are very important to me :)

    Hey guys , I was wondering if anyone was interested in making the DC Rebirth Batman suit ( as seen here). No need for a belt since I'll use the new belt piece from the Lego Batman Movie. Not too detailed , simple and clean like TLG would design it . Thanks in advance to anyone who is kind enough to help , I'll use this in a MOC and will of course credit you .

    [MOC] Son of Makuta

    Hey guys , this is the first Bionicle G2 MOC I made that I find worth sharing so please , enjoy : This is ______ , the son of Makuta . The devil-like _____ is as devious and insidious as his father , but also bloodthirsty and ruthless. He wields a powerful Bident gifted to him by his father ( inspired by Hades's weapon of choice ) , which he uses both for physical combat as well as channeling his dark elemental powers. His bat-like wings allow him to take his fights to the sky ( using an Ikir like flapping function ) , often dropping his enemies after grabbing them and flying high enough for a lethal drop. Finally , his satyr-like legs draw inspiration from depictions of demons and devils having similar legs , as well as G1 Makuta from 2003. "Witness the fate of your leader Toa , witness the fate of those who stand before me . Now that I defeated him , what chance do you stand ?" So what do you guys think ? Please comment , I'd love to hear your opinions and criticism , they really mean a lot to me ! I'm also looking for a name for him so drop any idea you have in the comments . Thanks a lot for looking .

    [WIP] T-65 X-Wing

    Thanks ! It's something I 've experimented on before , involving stripping the PF lights of their cover , so they can fit through the axle hole .

    @Arthur Schopenhauer : Thanks for the comment man . The next update will probably be the finished thing ! @La Chupacabra : Do you mean this one [ http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=88295&colorID=66&in=A ] ? If so , it's a minifig shoulder armour part from some Prince of Persia sets .

    [WIP] T-65 X-Wing

    Hey guys , new ( kind of late ,but I got a new job and went away on holidays for a while) update on the X-Wing. The body is next to complete ( only have the right side panels on so I can access the inside , as I'm trying to make some connections stronger). I'll probably add rigid hoses to cover the gaps between the panels. I also added PF lights to the exhausts , the photo doesn't showcase them that well but they shine in the iconic pink/purple colour. The big engine parts are ideal for hiding the cables , they won't be visible at all in the final model. The two main things that remain are the greebling on top, behind R2 ( I really need to buy the newest R2-D2 version - I only have the old one ) , and the detail in the back. S-foils are stuck in attack position for now since that's what you really want for displaying an X-wing , but I'm playing around with ways to make them close up for flight too. The stand is obviously thrown together in seconds just for now , I'll build a proper one soon enough.Finally , please ignore the hose on the canopy not being as bent as it needs to be , these things are tough to bend properly , but I think I have a solution . As always, please help me improve this by commenting your opinions and suggestions , it really helps a ton ( Also, click the images to see a better resolution on flickr) .

    [WIP] T-65 X-Wing

    Hey guys , sorry for the double post but I think it's excusable since this is an update (just a small one though). I worked on the angled part in the belly , and added a couple of tiles on the top of the cockpit . Please ignore the ugly "inside" of the cockpit , it will of course , be fixed , but I think I'll leave it for last. I also finished the main cannon on the wing. I am 100% sure about the techniques I used , but I'm not sure about the length . Please comment what you think about it . Personally , what bugs me and will probably be changed soon is that 2x4 wedge below the dark red tile. The angle isn't right , it should be replaced with a 2x3 wedge , and then the angle will be perfect . My problem is that if I do replace it with a 2x3 , it will (obviously) not be as long , and won't cover the whole area. I have an idea that fixes both problems , I'll test it out tomorrow. Please comment your opinions and/or suggestions guys , it really helps .

    Oh , I see what you mean now . That guys X-wing is pretty good , he uses almost the same technique as I do on that area ( although he posted it only one day later than I posted mine so there's no chance it's a "borrowed idea" , just minds thinking alike ). In his version the problem doesn't exist because the 2x4 tiles for the top part are 1 plate higher . that way the can't be lower than the top of the nose though. I think I can achieve middle ground with mine with both the wedges not being higher than the top , and the top not being as high as the nose. I'll get working and will update you guys by Friday .
