    The Shogun Titan

    Once upon a time, around nine years ago, I was a burgeoning fan of Ninjago, an avid reader of Brickipedia, and hadn't yet made my way to Mocpages. I was in the store, probably Books a Million, where I was flipping through a Ninjago Brickmaster book when I laid my eyes on my first mech. Not exactly the most inspired build, but was an inspiration to me. I mean come on! It was a Giant Robot, what could be cooler than that! I didn't end up buying the book since I was a child at the time, but my interest in Giant Robots was Peaked. Fast forwarding a few years, after a couple of dodgy attempts to make one with parts from the Toy Story Pizza Planet Truck, I was looking through Youtube to find some cool lego reviews and mocs, I stumbled across this video by Artifex Creation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtAMGj74Br0 Now, this blew my tiny Ninja obsessed mind, I had no idea that Lego mechs could be that big. Keep in mind that most of my time on Mocpages at the time was concerned with bionicle, and at the only mechs released for the theme where the Samurai X mech, the Fangpyre mech, the first Fire mech, and the previously mentioned Skulkin Mech. Unfortunately I lacked any real parts to build something substantial, so I sat on my hands for a bit. But all that Changed once I got my filthy mits on Superman V. Power Armor Lex I wanna say that was late 2013/early 2014 since I was really looking forward to the upcoming rebooted season. I mean Come on, they were fighting Robots! So I tried my hand at building some sort of Nindroid Lighting Mech with the parts I had. The only problem? I didn't have any Nindroids, so I ended up making some amalgamation of Final Battle Jay and the Series 8 Evil Robot. He had stolen Jay's powers and color scheme. Cut me some slack guys. Fortunetly, I was about to get some of those sweet Ninja robots with my first Ninjago mech: The Destructoid This Thing had it all: Choping blades! A Disk Shooter! A Sawblade! Tank tracks! And a sword! This thing was awesome, and it was another in a long line of Ninjago Purchases. Fast Forwarding to 2017, I fully caught up with the show, and excited for the movie, and moreso the sets. We had gotten some pretty goods mech in the past, but it seemed that with the film came a renaissance of Ninjago set designs. Bigger, Bolder builds that sought to do more than what came before it, and that was where my problem began: The Garma Mecha Man. Now, there's nothing inherently wrong with the set, it serves its purpose as an affordable imitation of the onscreen build at an smaller scale. It's well built and fun to mess around with, if a bit chunky. No, the problem came when you compared it to some of the other sets in the wave. (Picture taken from the Brickset Review) The Garma Mecha Man isn't exactly the most imposing build. In the film, it seemed like it could go toe to toe with all six ninja vehicles at once. The Set looks like it could hardly go up against one, so I set out to build one that could. Not my best work, I'll admit. This early design was plagued with poor shaping, weak knees, and a waste that was only held on by four studs, though it could fit a figure inside. It was a rough start, and disassembled soon after, but it was a stepping stone for bigger and better things: Garmagedon Constructed with the parts of The Nindroid Mechdragon, The Destructoid, The Garma Mecha Man, the Iron Doom, the Oni Titan, The Water Strider, and whatever odds and ends I had laying around, and with the Four Golden Weapons plugged into its chest, the mech was almost on the verge of perfection. The only Problems? My attempt at torso articulation left no room for a cockpit, made the build very unstable, and provided very little movement. A rework was in order before I could hope on showing it off, and to help celebrate the ten year anniversary of Ninjago, I got off my butt and decided to get to work. And that brings us to today. Countless reworks, and two extra arms, I'd like to show you guys the finished **Shogun Titan** I know I've talked a lot in this post, but I hope that my work speaks for itself. Oh, and sorry for any fuzzy pictures.

    [MOC] Tie Wing

    Sorry to those of you expecting a Tie Fighter X/Y/A/B Wing ugly. You can have this instead. The Tie-Wing is an experimental Tie Fighter prototype exclusively reserved for Death Trooper use. I assume that Death Troopers can pilot Tie Fighters. The gyroscopic 'pod' is encased by a single radiator panel that rotates around it. I'm not really sure what advantage this gives it other than being 'Cool' I don't know, just go ask the designers of the B-wing why their ship rotates, and I'll just rip off their explanation. Anywho, onto the Moc. : Top view : Cockpit ; Wing rotation : Engines? It's totally two engines, honest! :Side :Final Pic So? Tell me what you guys think!

    If this wave does involve time-travel could the two rouges be the same character from two different points in his life?

    The 2nd Death-star had the exhaust port removed.Plus the information was for where the Death-star was and that the emperor was on it, not how to destroy it.

    I think the joker car has some sort of hydraulic feature where you turn the spare tire on the back and the wheels raise and lower. just my thoughts

    The Batmobile has ratchet joints connected to the front wheels. could they swivel forward to make some sort of bat trike?

    Bionicle 2016 Sets Discussion

    why would it mater weather or not bionicle ends next year or the nest twenty years? we have good sets, a good, if simple narrative, a load of new constraction parts,and even more recolors. we should enjoy what we have, an not dread over it ending. everything ends, argueing about when that will happen wont change the fact that it will one day be over.

    I think The rebel ship is Awesome! the inclusion of agent Kallus is strange,but i think Sato is fantastic. it also looks like there's some sort of gearing function in the side prongs in the back.
