    [MOC] Post Apocalypse Tanker Truck

    I haven't yet. I sometimes make scenes with a little story for kids. My oldest wants me to do a story for this build so I'd need more for that.
  2. Our LUG did a challenge to use an obscure piece. I don't have a lot of old weird pieces but I did have this old C battery pack. Initially I tried to a pillar with a walkway spirally around it but it didn't work well. I noticed that it looked kinda like the trailer of a tanker truck. So I started designing a post apocalypse tanker truck. (It didn't even occur to me to make a regular Lego City tanker truck.)

    Computer Generated Castles

    Very nice program.
  4. Brick Monsters: Eye of the Deep is complete. The first version I posted to a different thread a while ago. I had created a beholder but it was big compared to minifigures so I decided to try to make a smaller one. Rather than just build another beholder I made an eye of the deep. Unfortunately that decision killed my goal of making it smaller. Sure the body is smaller but the arms sticking out make it about the same width. The plant piece on the bottom was the inspiration for this build because I thought it would work great for the tendrils under the eye of the deep. For the second version I was thinking about the fiddler crab and how it has one big claw. I've never seen eye of the deep artwork like that but I thought it would be interesting.
  5. I saw the Ultimate Mech contest and immediately thought of this build. However, I felt it was missing something. Ultimate Lavaria has bat wings. I thought it would be cool to add a bat attachment for the mech.
  6. Brick 101 did an excellent Minecraft Iron Golem. My son originally wanted it for the mini build for his birthday party. It was too expensive and he changed his mind to a Nexo Knights theme. I thought this was great. Since Monstrox has gone digital, I figured you could have the knights looking for old magic to defeat him. They run across an old golem guardian a site and convince him to join them. My son requested moving legs. The part count is reduced. A spot for a Nexo Power is added to the chest. (I included a blank blue piece and a random Nexo Power in the party favors.) Instructions are provided here.
  7. My LUG did a BrickHeadz challenge for a meeting. I had thought about doing Ultimate Lavaria but decided on Mer-Man instead. About an hour before the meeting I quickly created Ultimate Lavaria as a BrickHeadz. I feel like I cheated a little on the wings, weapon, and legs by using the pieces from Ultimate Lavaria set.

    Benny's x-wing X-Wing X-WING

    Great build. Looks like the R2 unit is just the head piece. I'd try to make it removable but instead of using an R2 use more of a classic space robot. (Maybe not an exact classic space robot but something that fuses it and the design of the R2 together.)

    Lego BAT-AT

    I've built a few Batman vehicles for my kids. I find red easier to work with. Yellow sometimes makes the vehicle look more bee like that Batman. Great build. My oldest has a Robot Command Center redone in Batman colors because he liked mine but wanted it for Batman. Wayne Technology piece seem a little odd. (Although not entirely so for the Lego Batman Movie.)
  10. Alternate builds are hard to do. This one is very nice. You mention that the body is very heavy when talking about the legs. Does this mean you can really pose it because the weight of the body will force the legs down?

  12. I took a look at the builds. They are very nice. I was hoping to enter but didn't find the time. I was planning on doing a walker of some kind. Looks like no one went that route.
  13. The first post in this thread has how to purchase the instructions.
  14. We have a rather large house. My wife wishes they weren't strewn about as much as they are. She has all her castle sets setup on her dresser. She envisions having shelves to put completed sets on so they are more contained. Not sure how well that will work with two boys who complain about picking up. Some LUG members were surprised that my wife encouraged purchasing more sets to do the BrickHeadz challenge of our group but I refused and wanted to use what I had. I would recommend setting up a personal budget. Basically I look at it as each spouse should have a set amount of money they can do with as they please per month. If you want to use it on Lego sets (even if you have to save up for a big set), she can't complain. You still will have to discuss how everything is stored at home but I don't think there is a simple answer to that. (I'm sorry if that is not very helpful as you have already mentioned money isn't a big issue.)
