    Lego Overwatch 2019 - Rumors & Discussion

    YES! This is exactly the thought I had when TLG first revealed the partnership. There are so many varied and superb skins for the characters, some of which are insanely popular, such as Strike Commander Morrison, Captain Amari, and Huntress Widowmaker, Lego would be stupid for not doing at least one CMF line, preferably more. I also see the overall theme lasting for at least two waves, maybe more, because Overwatch is extremely popular, as other commenters have said, plus the pieces and some of the minifigs will be appealing to non-Overwatch fans, and thus will hopefully drive the demand for more sets up.

    1930 Rolls Royce Condor AV

    Thanks! I have been working on a steering system for six stud wide cars for awhile now, and recently perfected it. Glad you like it! Thank you Peppermint_M! I'm happy you like it, the wheel arches were honestly the hardest part, since they had to be wide enough to allow the steering to work, while not looking absurdly open. So do I! It's a lot of fun to just transfer this sudden thought into a model and have it turn out exactly how you imagined it! Thanks SP! Glad you liked it! The background was literally just an afterthought for the photo, so I'm really glad it turned out and people like it! Thanks GTP! He sure is, not that it'll do him any good against the Thunder! Thanks JJB! Yes they do, I just thought the display looked better with them closed. Thank you Laura! I'm glad you like it. LOL! The real Rolls armored car was indeed where I drew some of the body style and turret design from, along with civilian Rolls from the time-period.
  3. Hello all! I haven't posted here in awhile, been busy with RL stuff and such, but here is my latest build! http://www.flickr.com/photos/95309146@N06/43063365835/in/dateposted/ The 1930 Rolls Royce Condor AV; The Armoured car for the discerning Gentleman """"""""""""""""""""""""""""""" Adventuring to the wilds of Africa? Trying to get to your next rally without being assassinated? Hunting lost Spanish treasures in Mesoamerica? Passing through the riot-torn streets of the Weimar Republic? Searching for ancient artifacts among the dunes of Egypt? Than the Condor is the vehicle for you! Equipped with our vaunted V-8, The Condor features a reinforced cabin, with four inch armour-plating all around, custom steel bumpers, strengthened wheel-rims, and a one-man turret, all on our supremely popular Condor limousine chassis! Boasting a 360 degree field of fire, the cabin turret has two inches of steel armour, a gunner's hatch, and is equipped with a Browning .50 caliber machine gun. Best of all, the Condor still seats four, just like the base model! If you need to be protected while on the move, but still want to catch the eye, then this vehicle is for you!* *(Available only at select Rolls Royce dealers) """"""""""""""""""""""""""""""" So, I have no idea how this came to be. I guess you can blame ZZ Top, since I was listening to Sharp Dressed Man, and thought, 'man, one of those fancy 20s cars would look so cool with a turret on top, drifting around a corner while shooting.' Fast forward an hour and I have this in front of me. Go figure. I am pretty happy with how the bodywork came out though, the fenders and hood really seemed to flow nicely together. At some point the Condor will be featured in a Johnny Thunder MOC, as Lord Sam Sinister's car. Anyway, hope you all like it! Oh, and yes, I stickered one of those rare folding windshields. >:D

    [Lester] Daimler-Benz Navigator CT

    Thank you Lady K! Thank you Exetrius. I worked really hard to get the fenders and grill just right. Yes, I am not really happy with the seating either, but the minifig chairs don't fit in that space, and in order for a fig to fit in the vehicle, I had to use plain brick for the back. Well, since you requested, here it is. I apologize for the late reply, weather was very poor for photos until this week. http://www.flickr.com/photos/95309146@N06/28432133698/in/dateposted/ Haha! Thanks Digger!

    [LESTER] - The Black Crow

    Wow! Superb work Kritch. I love how it instantly brings to mind the rugged buses and trucks they use in Nepal and Tibet; The Black Crow looks like it would fit right in on the streets of Kathmandu! My favorite part is the removable hood and engine underneath. I know how hard it is to get details like that at this scale, so it makes your MOC all the more impressive. Lovely!
  8. The all-new Daimler-Benz Navigator, Convertible Truck: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Navigator, the newest off-road automobile from Daimler-Benz, is the vehicle of choice for the rugged outdoorsman, the stubborn explorer, the far-flung military unit, or the discerning traveler. Coming in Convertible or Hardtop Truck, and Convertible or Hardtop Sedan, the Navigator is equipped with a flat-cylinder V8, all-weather leather seats, removable soft top in the convertibles, ample rear trunk space, a reinforced steel bedrack for holding tools, and locking 4-wheel drive. A steel tow hitch at the back ensures that whatever won't fit in the trunk, you can pull behind you! The Navigator comes in Temple Gray, Sahara Tan, Jungle Green, and Atlantis Blue. This is the rough-and-tumble automobile for all your exploration needs, so pick one up today!** *Available at select Benz dealers in Europe, North America, and Asia. http://www.flickr.com/photos/95309146@N06/27912533148/in/dateposted/ The Navigator model features working steering, opening doors, folding windshield and removable top, plus it seats two minifigs, albeit uncomfortably. I wanted to include suspension and opening hood, but ran out of time and space. :( http://www.flickr.com/photos/95309146@N06/41063623314/in/photostream/ *Promotional images used with permission of Colonel Jacque DeAthos. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hope you all like it, and may the best Adventurer win! :D

    [MOC] Mirtrum castle

    Magnificent. This is one of the best microscale creations I have seen in a very long time. I am blown away with the clever parts usages in the houses, but the main castle section is the piece d' resistance for me. The detail you achieved at such a small scale is mind-boggling! Amazing job!

    [MOC] Cargo starships

    Wow! Superb group of microscale ships you have there. The amazing parts usage, color schemes, and varied roles, all help to give the vessels their own flair, while still seeming to still come from the same universe. My favorite has to be the Protected Container Ship. Such great NPU, especially on the bridge, plus the unique color scheme really makes it pop!

    Contest: Lester's Big Adventure!

    Great contest idea Peppermint_M! I definitely want to participate in this. One question though: The vehicle I have in mind is going to be a few studs longer than the red Jake Raines truck. Is that okay?

    The Falcon's Nest

    Thanks Blufiji! Ah, very nice. Yeah, the Rhine Falls are absolutely gorgeous. Makes the nearest falls to where I'm living, Great Falls, look like a trickle, lol! Oh, haha. They are supposed to be tree rings, although I admit they do look a bit like helipads. Thanks again! I do indeed enjoy some good literature. Thank you! Cheers, Joshua

    [M - E01] OMG Is That A RHHC(1).... ! ?

    Great build Lady K! I especially like the Octan rover, and the detail you put into the comms unit, very well done! :thumbup:

    Winter Village: Brewery

    Wow! This is an awesome model! If this were an official set, I'd buy three of them! There's so much to love, but I think my favorite part is that fantastic lorry! :sweet: Great job, and congrats on being one of the contest winners! :thumbup:

    MOC Police swat team with a humvee

    Very nice! I particularly like the opening hood, and the way you got the back of the trunk curved!
