    EB Xmas Raffle 2018 - Your Santa MOC winners thread

    Yay! After crossing the Baltic sea, my manatee has arrived safely in Moscow few days ago, and today I rescued it from our local post office. :D I'm really happy, because I got very rare white Star Wars minifigure (the one I really need as a huge SW fan and collector), an interesting droid (also the one I need for my collection), a cool Sith (though I already have one, but Sith twins are twice cooler I think) and funny key chain (ha ha, my best friend has one too!). If anyone is interested, photo in the spoiler (prize D, day 24). Everything is awesome! A huge thanks to @CopMike! As huge as manatee! ;)

    EB Xmas Raffle 2018 - Your Santa MOC winners thread

    Yaaay, I won in the last day while thinking that 12,8% is a really low chance! Thanks a lot to CopMike! :D My congratulations to fellow winners! And though it's too late to say it now, but Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone! ;)
  3. "Defying Gravity" is the most famous scene and song from the sixth longest running Broadway musical of all time - "Wicked". The musical retells the story of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" from the viewpoint of two friends, Glinda and Elphaba, which will be known as the Wicked Witch of the West despite the fact that she did nothing wicked at all. The musical looks like a comedy in some scenes and most of the time the story and mood is optimistic, but if you start digging deeper, you realise that in fact it is a really tragic story for all the characters, with a lot of meaning, so there are definitely a lot to think about. ;) Elphaba is considered strange and hated by the other Ozians only because her skin is green color. So when madame Morrible tells her that she has a strong talent in magic and promised to write to the Wizard about it, Elphaba starts to dream about how she will be accepted by the Ozians after she proves her worth to Wizard. Alas, when she and her friend Glinda finally meets the Wizard, they discover that he and madame Morrible are the puppeters behind the oppression of the Animals (intelligent creatures who able to speak), and the Wizard was going to use Elphaba for his own purposes, because he has, as we remember from the film, no real magic powers. Elphaba, who was aware of the anti-Animal conspiracy and was going to ask him for help believing that the Wizard surely will do something to stop it, is angry, so she rejects the opportunity to be in Wizard's team and desides to go on her own and fight this problem by herself. Glinda tries to calm her down, and so begins the most memorable scene in all musical, in which Elphaba defy the things that all Ozians believe in, defy all the people that have always repressed her... and defy gravity. The song by Idina Menzel (Elsa from "Frozen") and Kristin Chenoweth in a spoiler below. This photostory is a re-creation of a scene from the musical, which is longer than the album recording due to the dialogs not included in it, so all the words that are included in the soundtrack are written with green italics, the remaining words are written with italics, the words of the song are additionally highlighted with bold, and the words that are included in the song from the album, but not in the script (so it is missing during a live performance) is striken. Descriptions of actions taken directly from the script of musical. The photos are not as good as they should have been, because I was going to make only one, but then I decided to shoot the whole scene, and while I was shooting, it was rapidly getting dark, and I had to move this tower to the windowsill and use a small LED light bulb, so it's amazing that I was able to even take a picture of something in such darkness. :) Leaving creative chaos mess in the room for a whole week to shoot scene at another day - alas, not my option, cause I have not so much time now... So let's start! Be sure to turn on the music from the spoiler! :) If you turn it on synchronously with reading, then you can just scroll the page to green text and read only it. [GLINDA] Elphie, stop! Wait -- where are you going? Elphie!! A DOOR IN THE FLOOR swings open, and Elphaba, followed closely by Glinda, clambers up into... ACT ONE, Scene 14: THE UPPERMOST TURRET OF THE WIZARD’S PALACE. It is a tiny barren room, a kind of supply closet containing a few old rags and an old broom in a corner. There is one large window, overlooking the rooftops of the Emerald City. [ELPHABA] There are no more stairs (looking around desperately) This must be the attic— [GLINDA] Elphaba, listen to me -- [ELPHABA] The guards are coming up. We’ll have to barricade the door! [GLINDA] What!? Elphaba looks around desperately for something to barricade the door with; she spots a broom, grabs it-- [ELPHABA] I’ll use this— Elphaba descends a couple of steps and wedges the door shut with the broom. As she comes back up... [GLINDA] Elphaba, why couldn’t you have stayed calm, for once! Instead of flying off the handle -- ! I hope you're happy I hope you're happy now I hope you're happy how You've hurt your cause forever I hope you think you're clever [ELPHABA] I hope you're happy I hope you're happy too I hope you're proud how you Would grovel in submission, to feed your own ambition [GLINDA and ELPHABA] So though I can't imagine how I hope you're happy right now... So though I can't imagine how, I hope you're happy right now... by R2 D2, on Flickr Suddenly, on a balcony high above, we see MADAME MORRIBLE. [MADAME MORRIBLE] Citizens of Oz! There is an enemy who must be found and captured. Believe nothing she says! She’s evil, responsible for the mutilation of these poor innocent monkeys! [GLINDA] Oh no-- [MADAME MORRIBLE] Her green skin is but an outward manifestorium of her twisted nature. This-- distortion, this-- repulsion, this-- Wicked Witch! [GLINDA] Don’t be afraid. [ELPHABA] (a discovery) I’m not. It’s the Wizard who should be afraid. Of me. [GLINDA] Elphie, listen to me. Just say you’re sorry. Before it’s too late… You can still be with the wizard What you've worked and waited for You can have all you ever wanted… [ELPHABA] I know -- But I don't want it – No -- I can't want it Anymore... Something has changed within me Something is not the same I'm through with playing by the rules Of someone else's game Too late for second-guessing Too late to go back to sleep It's time to trust my instincts Close my eyes and leap! It's time to try Defying gravity I think I'll try Defying gravity And you can't pull me down... [GLINDA] Can't I make you understand, You're having delusions of grandeur...? [ELPHABA] I'm through accepting limits 'Cause someone says they're so Some things I cannot change But till I try, I'll never know! Too long I've been afraid of Losing love I guess I've lost Well, if that's love It comes at much too high a cost! I'd sooner buy Defying gravity Kiss me goodbye I'm defying gravity And you can't pull me down... LOUD POUNDING FROM BELOW... [GUARD’S VOICES] Open this door--! In the name of His Supreme Ozness! Elphaba grabs the book of spells, pages through it furiously-- [GLINDA] What are you doing? Elphaba finds a page, immediately starts to CHANT FEVERISHLY UNDER HER BREATH- [GLINDA] Stop it! That’s what started all this in the first place, that hideous Levitation Spell! Elphaba ignores her, continues chanting... [GLINDA] STOP! Glinda covers her face, frightened to see the results of the chanting. Elphaba stops. Glinda uncovers her face. Then - [GLINDA] Well? Where are your wings? (beat) Maybe you’re not as powerful as you think you are. Maybe you’re not as powerful as you think you are. by R2 D2, on Flickr But suddenly, what should come floating up but – THE BROOM, which has freed itself from the door handle! It floats towards Elphaba! [GLINDA] Sweet Oz! [ELPHABA] I told you, Glinda. Didn’t I tell you?! WE HEAR MORE POUNDING, and Guard’s VOICES... [GUARD’S VOICES] Bash it in! Fetch the battering ramikin! Elphaba grabs the broom. [ELPHABA] Quick! Get on! Glinda stares at her. Shocked. [GLINDA] What? [ELPHABA] Glinda, come with me. Think of what we could do... together. Unlimited Together we're unlimited Together we'll be the greatest team There's ever been Glinda -- Dreams the way we planned 'em [GLINDA] If we work in tandem… [GLINDA and ELPHABA] There's no fight we cannot win Just you and I Defying gravity With you and I Defying gravity [ELPHABA] They'll never bring us down... But Glinda hesitates. [ELPHABA] Well? Are you coming? Come with me. Think of what we could do... together. by R2 D2, on Flickr [GLINDA] Elphie, you’re trembling. (She gets a black blanket from a shelf) Here... put this around you. (She wraps the blanket around Elphaba’s shoulders) Here... put this around you. by R2 D2, on Flickr [GLINDA] I hope you're happy now that you're choosing this… [ELPHABA] You too — I hope it brings you bliss [GLINDA and ELPHABA] I really hope you get it And you don't live to regret it I hope you're happy in the end I hope you're happy, my friend... I hope you're happy, my friend... by R2 D2, on Flickr Suddenly a furious BATTERING AT THE DOOR... and PALACE GUARDS BURST IN, musket-like rifles drawn, and pointed at both of them. Glinda SHRIEKS - [GUARD 1] There she is! There she is! by R2 D2, on Flickr [GUARD 2] Don’t let her get away! [GLINDA] Leave me alone, do you hear--?! Let go of me! Let go of me! by R2 D2, on Flickr [ELPHABA] It’s not her! She has nothing to do with it. I’m the one you want! It’s me! But as they surge toward her, she actually appears to rise - Defying Gravity by R2 D2, on Flickr [GLINDA] Elphie! [ELPHABA] It’s MEEE! So if you care to find me Look to the western sky! As someone told me lately: "Everyone deserves the chance to fly!" And if I'm flying solo At least I'm flying free To those who ground me Take a message back from me: So if you care to find me, look to the western sky by R2 D2, on Flickr [ELPHABA] Tell them how I'm defying gravity I'm flying high defying gravity And soon I'll match them in renown And nobody in all of Oz No wizard that there is or was Is ever gonna bring me down! And nobody in all of Oz, no wizard that there is or was, is ever gonna bring me down! by R2 D2, on Flickr And we see the shocked CITIZENS OF OZ, pointing up in horror and wonder at the sight of this Wicked Witch. [GLINDA] I hope you're happy! I hope you're happy! by R2 D2, on Flickr [CITIZENS OF OZ] Look at her, she's wicked! Get her! [ELPHABA] ...Bring me down! [CITIZENS OF OZ] No one mourns the wicked So we got to bring her… [ELPHABA] (a triumphant cry) Ahhhh! [CITIZENS OF OZ] Down! Look at her, she's wicked! by R2 D2, on Flickr END OF ACT ONE You can find this scene from the musical here, but there roles of Elphaba and Glinda are played by another singers, so their voices sound different from soundtrack, and also quality of sound is far from perfect. You can play video in another tab and read italicized text synchronously with it. Anyone who interested, please check out the story in Wikipedia (listening an album first doesn't help you, cause all dialog tracks between the songs and some spoken lines are not included in CD in order to avoid spoilers), and then read the annotations and user's comments under it (some users pointed out really interesting and important meanings in comments, so don't skip it) to all the songs on Genius (and there are you'll find links on YouTube as well). Or, if you're lucky enough to live somewhere near the theatres where are performances of "Wicked", go and watch it. It is definetely worth it. ;) Thanks for watching and any comments are very welcomed)

    [MOC] Kingdoms Giant Chess

    kieran, thanks. Sorry for the late reply. I buit this chess at 2013-2014, and it cost me approximately 20,000 RUB (666.67 USD), because I had to order the bricks in several different stores in Europe, and the delivery to our country is very expensive. Of course, if I lived in Western Europe, they would have cost me much cheaper. But since now the figures from these sets are much harder to find, the cost of chess only increased. ;)

    Thrawn Contest Voting Thread

    I vote for #7 twice! Amazing work.
  10. The author of the review wishes to thank The LEGO Group for providing of a set for the review! The author of the review wishes to thank VerSen for the Wonderful Photos and for an invitation to write the text for them! ;) The author of the review wishes to thank BaraSH for explanation of the differences between the Two Purple Ladies enlightment of I'm-not-a-comic-fan about the Batman universe! :) This review was written for Russian Fan Forum Lego (aka RFFL, aka phantoms.su) by me and translated into English for Eurobrick. The Lego Batman Movie 70902 Catwoman Catcycle Chase Review Set Number: 70902 Set Name: Catwoman Catcycle Chase Year Released: 2017 Pieces Count: 139 Minifigures Count: 3 Description: Brickset; BrickLink; Bricker;. RRP: $19.99 Price Per Piece: 14.4c This set is based on "The LEGO Batman Movie", which was released in theaters at 8 February 2017. According to the description of the plot of the film, Gotham City once again in danger, so Batman (alter ego of billionaire Bruce Wayne) is going to protect it, but on the advice of his butler Alfred he has to take Robin (Dick Grayson) as his companion, because the superhero adopted him on one of the secular reception. Together they will fight Joker and Harley Quinn, who escaped from the psychiatric hospital. There also will be many other heroes and villains the DC, and it is rumored that there is a chance to see the characters of other popular franchises (such as the Daleks from Doctor Who) in the film. The box and instruction On the box, according to the laws of Hollywood action-scene is depicted: Catwoman makes a U-turn on Catcycle, Batgirl tries to stop her using Bat-a-Rang, and Robin jumps from the roof of a jewelry store on the lamppost, trying to overturn it. However, if you look at the path of Catcycle it's become clear that Catwoman will be able to dodge both) Designers didn't forget to boast that a new type capes are able to fly an epic! Batman dashing smiles at us in the top right corner. The image on the instructions, as always, repeats the image from the box, but the instruction itself looks pretty well-fed for such a small set. Building in the process and random page of instruction. By the way, pay attention to the image on the upper side of the box - Robin jumps so that Batgirl could throw Bat-a-Rang at Catwoman who didn't expect such a dirty trick. I see that they have a great team! Or, perhaps, Robin simply slipped on the peel Bat-a-Rang. :) Unfortunately the set includes stickers - personally I don't like stickers, but there's nothing I can do.. But these stickers are are interesting ones! Firstly, an advertisement of the missing of a cat, which for some reason was photographed meows on the tree. I know who will save it) And secondly, a jewelry store sign is clearly reminiscent of the cat's head, and I somehow have the feeling that Catwoman decided to rob her own store. xD The minifigures In this small set there are three beautiful, very well-detailed figures. I can not help but notice that Robin deprived of utility belt with pockets... Apparently, he doesn't need the pockets, but the girls find these pockets very useful) On the other side the figures look great too. What a spine of Catwoman! If this torso wear shoulder pads, which hide a recognizable zipper tab in the form of a cat's head, you get a suit for cool superheroine of the future or a computer game, so this figure may be used in MOCs as well. Boots on the legsof the characters painted with back side too, not just the front and right and left, as before, that the obvious plus. This is because there are two layers of plastic. And about Batgirl I'll say that she have typical problems of many fem-cosplayers - it's when a ponytail sticks under the mask or helmet (that can ruin the impression of a stern armored robot). It looks funny) Robin (Dick Grayson) is the first Robin, who was taken into care by Batman after the death of his parents who was an acrobats. According to the comics, he has long helped Batman, then became an independent superhero named Nightwing, then became Batman, temporarily replacing Bruce Wayne when Bane broke his spine, then he helping Batman again, met with Barbara Gordon, at that time already Oracle rather than Batgirl, and in the most recent events he becomes Batman in Gotham, while Bruce Wayne becomes Batman worldwide. Robin, as well as Batman, doesn't have superpowers, but have the skills of martial arts, detective skills, and he is a perfect gymnast and a very good athlete. Robin minifigure is funny, especially the glasses. We immediately can see that the comical character is waiting for us in the film! By the way, he has two facial expressions - the smile is on both. Batgirl (Barbara Gordon) is the first Batgirl (except Betty Kane who was excluded from the canon), she was adopted by Commissioner Gordon, after her parents were killed in a car accident. According to the comics, she became a fan of Batman, and even built up a female version of his costume (decided to become a cosplayer xD), then saved Bruce Wayne at the ball masquerade, and later Batman invited her to join the team, ans so she has successfully fought against crime until while the bullet of Joker is damaged her spine, after that she became a hacker nicknamed the Oracle, and helps Batman and Robin by the radio, and the suit of Batgirl later passed to Cassandra Cain. Batgirl minifigure is beautiful from all sides, and now you will understand why. Just look at these shoes! Finally, the Lego starts to not just paint the legs on the side, but to apply the pattern on the side. These straps are perfect! Pattern on hands is less accurate, but also looks cool. Smile and wave! (c) Penguins from a film "The Madagascar" Batgirl has an additional face, it is angry. Catwoman (Selina Kyle) is a professional thief, originally an anti-heroine, and later a good character. According to the comics, she had a difficult childhood, and then she found herself in a orphans' home where cruel headmistress was a peculator, so Selina brought her to clean water, freed the other captives of orphans' home, and rushed to the thieves' life. She got her nickname from a jealous student of Sensei, which she shifted from a position of best student, then she inspired by Batman's example and built herself a suit. In later comics, and even in Nolan's film a romantic relationship shown between Catwoman and Batman. The combination of dark purple with silver - very good color scheme! Pattern on the hands of Catwoman - it's by far the best pattern on the hands in the set, and in general, IMHO, the best pattern on the hands that I have ever seen. However, it's a pity that it is impossible to remove the glasses in any way, as the second face (smiling) is also printed with the mask. Catcycle Catcycle is pretty stable, which is a definite plus for Lego bike, as they tend to fall on its side. Personally, I think he looks very stylish. By the way, if not the name of the set, then it would be unclear that it is CATcycle because there are no markings in the form of cat on it. This means that you can easely put Batgirl on bike, as according to the old films, she also liked to ride motorcycles. And note that she is also in purple suit! ;) Above view allows you to see the curved slope with a pattern showing a speedometer, which shows that the motorcycle has not gain speed yet) However, the speedometer still have cat ears... But this part is easy to replace, and then it will be just a purple bike, suitable for any minifigure. Main view and set functions So once upon a time, of the yellow-yellow dark-dark night Catwoman went to "work". On the way to the jewellery store she found an advertisement of the missing of a cat written by its desperate owners and the rare green trash container that appears in this color only in nine sets. So she walked around the store, the base of which is shown by masonry bricks 1x4, which is great, because it is a rare and useful piece, and because such a masonry at the base of the building can often be seen in reality. And Catwoman opens the door of the shop, which, unfortunately, is always closed, because the sticker "Open" is not included in the set. Maybe that's why she decided to rob it? :) Suspiciously glancing toward VerSen's camera surveillance cameras, Catwoman reaches for ruby, ignoring the diamond. Then she sits down on the Catcycle, which definitetly have not parked there before, so I am still inclined to believe that bike could belong to Batgirl. Cause the bike could not go by itself, isn't it? ;P And then on the roof and on the ground our valiant heroes appear! Robin cheerfully spoil the city property, overturning flimsy lamppost and Batgirl stay on the roof, as if hovering over it (I can not in any way understand how she stand, but it she is clearly stand higher than should, it's some cinema magic, not otherwise!), and watching him with delight! Catwoman's eyesight says "Again they are!". And now - a general view of a set, or "smiles at the camera!". :D Now even Catwoman is happy) Conclusion Pros + beautiful minifigures with detailed patterns, even on all sides of ths legs + rare and useful pieces, like a transparent door, green container and masonry bricks 1x4 + stylish bike that suitable not only for Catwoman + new type of soft capes are able to epic fly in the wind - what else is need for a superhero? xD Cons - stickers, which most AFOLs do not like to stick - no "Open" sticker, so the store will be closed constantly - no faces without masks, that means that the characters can't remove them This set is very, very cool, and will look great on a shelf of a collector! And finally, a little bonus shots) Bonus During the time we discussed the pros and cons, Batgirl flew somewhere) Apparently, she decided that Robin can cope on his own! Just look at this happy guy! xD In my opinion, he is not going to catch anyone, just having fun with a lamppost) Thanks for watching and any comments are very welcomed!

  14. This is MOC of November 2014. I tried to build my own TARDIS almost the year before the release of 21304 Ideas set (Andrew Clark's project was approved in February 2015, and my TARDIS was inspired by his project, which I voted with a great expectations and got my fingers crossed till the results of the 2014 review were announced) My aim was to build a TARDIS, which CAN open and close the doors. So it doesn't looks well, it doesn't looks like original, but it works! :) I'm going to return to my project and to represent another characters, including Ood Sigma, the Judoons, Martha Jones, River Song, Amy and Roryand my own Clara (because I don't like her minifigure in the set). Probably I'll also add to this company such characters as Jackie Tyler, Mickey, Sarah Jane Smith and K9. But I need a lot of time and inspiration, so this will happen not in the near future. Perhaps this summer, maybe later) WARNING: this MOC contain spoilers! You have been warned by River Song! xD Because I like to collect the characters of my favorite films, I just could not pass by one of three my the most favorite TV series - Doctor Who) But the Doctor is not the Doctor without his TARDIS, his sonic screwdriver and his trusty friends) I put some soundtrack music into the text, hope you will like it))) Murray Gold - Westminster Bridge The first music heard in the show, it marked the return of the Doctor on TV screens. You can describe it by the first phrase you heard from the Doctor in the new series - "Run!" So, who is the Doctor, why no one knows his name, what or who is the TARDIS, and why everyone loves this series? The Doctor - is the (almost) last one of his kind of great and powerful alien race of the Time Lords from the planet Gallifrey. They differ from humans in that they evolved from reptiles, they have two hearts, they live just an incredibly long time (several thousand years), and they can to regenerate up to 12 times, if they are on the verge of death. When regeneration, not only the appearance is changing, but also the personality. The Gallifreyans were smart enough (no one human can live with the knowledge of the Time Lords, our brains too underdeveloped) to come up with the idea to travel in space and time. They invented the time machines called TARDIS - Time And Relative Dimensions In Space. Its a live being, so you can't to build a TARDIS, only to grow it. They may take the form of any object through a device called the Chameleon Circuit, but it was broken at Doctor's TARDIS, so it stuck at the form of an police phone box. But the most important thing in this amazing machine is that it's bigger on the inside (than the outside). Much bigger. Definitely. De Lorean from Back in the Future never can be like this))) The Doctor can't say his own name because "one wrong word can change all the time and space". Because he protects the Earth from the scum of the universe better than the Men in Black, it's better to him to keep his real name in secret. So this cult British sci-fi TV series celebrated more than 50 years and it is firmly inscribed itself in popular culture. It is impossible not to love the show, where you can visit Pompeii, open the London 2012 Olympic Games, to go to the end of time, to live in a parallel universe, to solve a mystery of Agatha Christie, to save the planet from the Daleks, to go to a tour of the planet Midnight (well, what wrong could happen?), go through initiation into the knights and then be exiled, to stuck into the longest traffic jam in the world, to learn that statues are not always stay still, meet a friend of your future, for which your acquaintance is the past, and much more! Let me introduce the characters to you) Murray Gold - The Doctor Forever This theme first heard in the Christmas special of the second season, later used in the third. The Doctor can regenerate 12 times, which implies a 13 completely different personalities. Usually, most viewers like that incarnation of the Doctor, whom they saw first. In my case it was Tenth, brilliantly played by David Tennant, so I decided to add him and his companions to my collection first. Tenth Doctor in general appears to us carefree, talkative, good-natured, witty and daring, but he becomes more serious when dealing with enemies. He sometimes also ruthless and dangerous, as well as his seventh incarnation, but has much less tendency to complex schemes and intricate action. Like the Seventh and Ninth Doctor, Tenth sometimes uses a cheerful, energetic appearance to mask true feelings. He loves to talk, always twists important information with complete nonsense to blunt the vigilance of the enemy. Also on occasion he can be rude and cruel, but this incarnation of the Doctor is merciful. His catchphrase - the French expression "Allons-y!", which means "Forward!". Murray Gold - Rose's Theme Despite the fact that the first episode of the revived series is named in honor of Rose, a separate theme music for her only appeared in the episode The End of the Worlds. The Doctor could not stand a thousand years of loneliness, if he didn't have true friends. The first companion of the Ninth and then Tenth Doctor was Rose Tyler, played by actress Billie Piper. Rose Tyler was an employee in a shop in central London, who met the Ninth Doctor during the invasion of Autons. The main track, which she had left after her travels in the TARDIS, is a time paradox which was associated with the words "Bad Wolf". Ninth Doctor and Rose during their travels constantly found these words without understanding what they mean. As it turned out later, trying to save the Doctor from the Daleks, Rose stared into the heart of the TARDIS, becoming the temporary storage of its forces. She gave herself the name "Bad Wolf", because it was a name of corporation where they were, and sent a message to the Doctor and Rose in the past. After destroying the Daleks, she could not restrain the force more and the Doctor absorbed it into himself, resulting in the regeneration of the Ninth to Tenth. By the way, the stickers on all the characters painted by me, but being based on the already existing and released Lego torsos, that is, in fact, some of the details I just repainted in a different color. Welcome to the TARDIS! Murray Gold - Doomsday This music sounds in the finale of the last episode of the second season - one of the most memorable and recognizable scenes of the series. Reading of this paragraph is not recommended for those who don't like SPOILERS. Unfortunately, Rose Tyler was locked in a parallel universe, a way to which was finally and completely closed at the same moment when the Doctor with the help of the hologram was trying to say something that he was going to for a long time... The moment of farewell of Doctor and Rose at the Bad Wolf Bay somewhere in Norway - one of the saddest episodes of the series. Another view. Murray Gold - The Runaway Bride Music from Christmas special issue of the second season. Surely writers couldn't finish the second season on such a sad note, and so at the last minute of episode Doomsday some bride unexpectedly materializes at hanging in a space somewhere in a galaxy far, far away (but not in the Star Wars, of course) TARDIS and she requires the bewildered Doctor immediate explaining how she got here. As it turns on, a bride named Donna Noble was attracted by Huon particles, which her fiance force-fed her, who worked on the aliens. These particles pulled her into the TARDIS. Donna refuses to continue to travel with the Doctor, so in the third season Martha Jones becomes his companion. Unfortunately, at the time when I was building this MOC, Lego has not released any Afro-American women yet, so I can't portrayed her then. But now I have a Storm from X-Men in my collection, so wait for Martha! :) Murray Gold - All the Strange, Strange Creatures Music from the trailer of the third season, then sounded in different series throughout the season. Speaking of the third season. In one series the Doctor had to temporarily become a man in order to escape from the hunting of the Family of Blood (no, they are not vampires, but they hunted for the Doctor to get his immortality). He did it with the help of an interesting device called Chameleon Arch. All his memories and knowledge of the Time Lords were enclosed in pocket watches, as in the photo above. And yes, sometimes the Tenth Doctor wears glasses, but only in order to appear more smart. Although no one can be smarter! :) And once again we are talking about the Doctor, it is impossible not to mention his famous gadget - sonic screwdriver. Sonic screwdriver is not a weapon. This is a complex instrument with many functions, the most famous of which - the opening of locks by a power of a sound wave. You can read about other functions here. This is how it looks in the TV series (but in fact it's a photo of a toy): In the fourth season Donna returns and becoming my favorite character in the Doctor Who universe) Murray Gold - Donna's Theme The composer wrote a new theme for the triumphant return of Donna. Donna Noble is a secretary from Chiswick, played by actress Catherine Tate, not just back, but also independently find the Doctor - and it is not the thing that everyone can do! She has a quick temper, and more independent than other companions. Another view. One critic wrote that Donna Noble acts as the "conscience of the Doctor" and stands out against the background of all the other companions of the Doctor, because "she does not need to be saved", and she never asks,"What is it, Doctor?". Critics also praised the fact that there was no love theme in a relationship of the Doctor and Donna. In addition, Donna can easily put boasting time traveler to the place: The Doctor: [stepping out of the TARDIS] Ah! Smell that air! Grass and lemonade! And a little bit of mint. Just a hint of mint. Must be the 1920s. Donna: You can tell what year it is just by smelling? The Doctor: Oh, yeah. Donna: Or, maybe, that big vintage car coming up the drive gave it away. The dialogue between Doctor and Donna in the episode The Unicorn and the Wasp. I made few different stickers for Donna. I'm going to make new stickers for Rose as well in the future. Another view. Another view. Welcome to the TARDIS once again! Murray Gold - Life Among the Distant Stars Very beautiful theme dedicated to the amateur astronomer Wilfred Mott. In the first episode of the fourth season also appears Donna's grandfather Wilfred Mott, played by actor Bernard Cribbins. Unlike many people on Earth, Wilfred was ready to believe that the aliens will one day come to the world, and that humanity will eventually travel to the stars and to communicate with aliens. In the evening, he comes to the hill with a telescope to watch the stars. In the special of the fourth season Wilfred was a temporary companion of the Doctor and played an important role. Donna and her grandfather. Another view. Wilfred and his telescope. Donna Grandpa will look through his telescope after the Doctor) Murray Gold - The Doctor's Daughter According to the composer, this series is not possible to come up with a slogan better than "Hello, Dad" In one series of the fourth season the TARDIS brings the Doctor, Donna and Martha on the planet Messaline, where there was a war between humans and fish-headed humanoids. Against the will of the Doctor some machine took a sample of his DNA, the genes were shuffled together, and they've got a clone - Jenny, the Doctor's "daughter", played by actress Georgia Moffett. Despite the fact that she was raised for the war, she is still very cheerful. Another view. Murray Gold - The Source The culmination of the episode The Doctor's Daughter - one of my favorite in the series. I hope that we will see Jenny again one day... Screenshot from an episode. The Lone Dalek Although initially this music was written for an episode The Lone Dalek of the first season, it was used as an additional theme for Rose later. Reading of this paragraph is not recommended for those who don't like SPOILERS. In the epic and grand finale of the fourth season the Daleks stole an Earth and another 26 planets, and placed them to the Medusa Cascade. They also captured the TARDIS, the Doctor and all his companions, including Rose Tyler, who managed to escape from a parallel universe, because of the actions of the Daleks the borders of the worlds starts to collapse. Due to biological meta-crisis of the severed hand, which the Doctor lost during the Christmas special of the first season, increased his clone - Meta-Crisis Doctor with all the knowledge and memories of the original Doctor, but turned out to be half man. He destroyed the Daleks, and as the punishment for this genocide was to be sent to a parallel universe, which starts to close again. And Rose, unfortunately, also can't leave the parallel universe, so the characters met again at the Bad Wolf Bay to say farewell forever. The Doctor: We've got to go. This reality is sealing itself off, forever. Rose: But, it's still not right, 'cause the Doctor is still you. The Doctor: And I'm him. Rose: All right, both of you, answer me this: When I last stood on this beach, on the worst day of my life, what was the last thing you said to me? Go on, say it. The Doctor: I said "Rose Tyler". Rose: Yeah? And how was that sentence gonna end? The Doctor: Does it need saying? Rose: And you, Doctor, what was the end of that sentence? Another view. Another screenshot from an episode. Rose and two Doctors. Doctor and Meta-Crisis Doctor. Meta-Crisis Doctor and Rose. Another view. So, we met with the Doctor and his companions, and we can now go on a journey, and to begin to explore the TARDIS) Murray Gold - The Greatest Story Never Told In general, it is a theme of the first appearance of River Song in the fourth season, but I like it a lot, so I just put it here) Here it is, a world-famous British police telephone box! All stickers for the TARDIS were drawn from scratch by me. The basic design of my TARDIS is inspired by the work from Lego Ideas, especially AndrewClark2's. But my know-how is the doors? which can open and close. However, in fact, they should open inward, but the design does not allow me to do so. My TARDIS is a bit disproportionate relative to the minifigures because of the need to create a functioning door. If you look inside the TARDIS, you can see its core and center console, as in this picture. View from above. View from above without the roof. Here you can see heavy paper insert. A picture on insert were drawn by me - partly at Photoshop, partly by pencils. So we looked at TARDIS outside, we can move now to its central room - the console room. Murray Gold - This Is Gallifrey: Our Childhood, Our Home The composition is dedicated to Doctor's home planet - theGallifrey, locked in a trap of the Time War. The TARDIS have a lot of different rooms, but most of the scenes of the series is featured console room from which you can control the movements of a time machine. In different seasons TARDIS interior design has changed, so the console of the Eleventh and Twelfth Doctor is particularly different from the Ninth and Tenth consoles, which I took as a basis. Unfortunately, I could not get with a drawing of coral background, but in general, I think, it works. TARDIS inside door is looks mirror reflection the door outside. View from above. View from above without background. View without background. Another view. The central part of the TARDIS consists of the center console and the time column. TARDIS time column keeps the energy due to which the time machine can operate. The design of the main consoles I took from The TARDIS Handbook. Although there are depicted the console of Eleventh Doctor, to build them from Lego is quite difficult, so they just served as an example of console design. TARDIS when flying often shakes, because it must be controlled by six pilots (according to the number of consoles) but has to be controlled by one Doctor as only he knows for what all these unthinkable buttons are intended. On the helm console placed steering mechanism with eyepiece and time rotor handbrake. To the right of it (or counterclockwise) is a navigation console, on which time and space forward/back control and directional pointer are placed. To the right of it is a diagnostic console, on which quantum foam manipulators, bunsen burner and organic diagnostic are placed. Between the previous and next console is the monitor placed. Image on it was took from an episode Stolen Earth. To the right of it is a communication console, on which voice recorder, analogue radio waves detect/monitor/change, scanner/typewriter and an analogue telephone are placed. To the right of it is a fabrication console, on which materialise/dematerialise fabrication and fabricated dispenser are placed. To the right of it is a mechanical console, on which engine release lever,locking down mech and gyroscopic stabilizer are placed. The TARDIS also have two assitional consoles - left and right. Left console. Right console. Tenth Doctor and Rose at the TARDIS. Tenth Doctor and Donna at the TARDIS. It's time to meet the enemies of the Doctor. Murray Gold - The Dark and Endless Dalek Night Music that accompanied the Dalek invasion in the fourth season. The Daleks are the main enemies of the Doctor, armored beings, devoid of all emotions, but hatred, dreaming to become the only race in the universe. Their catchphrase is "Exterminate!". Daleks of different eras differ by color. I made a small squad of the Time War Daleks. Brown is ordinary soldier. Left view. Front view. Right view. Rear view. Black is the leader. Left view. Front view. Right view. Rear view. Red is the supreme commander. Left view. Front view. Right view. Rear view. Doctor and Donna surrounded by the Daleks. Murray Gold – The Cybermen The Cybermen theme from the first season. The Cybermen are humans who have put their brain and central nervous system in a robot's body. However, they are deprived of all the emotions and also tend to turn all the humans into Cybermen. Their catchphrase is "Delete!". Another view. Doctor and Rose hides from the Cybermen. Murray Gold – Blink (Suite) Music from an episode Blink - the first episode in whch the Weeping Angels are appeared. The Weeping Angels are quantum-locked beings, which means that they turn to the stone statues when someone looks at them. If no one is watching, they move very fast. That is why they hide their faces, as if they saw each other, they turn to a stone forever. If Weeping Angel touches a living being, it will go into the past, and will live there until his or her death, without the possibility to return to his or her life at nis or her own's century, with the Angel gets power of all the days that his victim could live. The only way to escape from them - not to blink. The Weeping Angel. Angel hides its face (this is quite problematic for a minifigure to do that). Weeping Angel stretched out its hands to the victim. Another view. The angels takes the phone box. A good way to neutralize the Weeping Angels forever. Screenshot from an episode Blink: "Don't blink, don't even blink! Blink and you're dead. They're fast, faster than you can believe. Don't turn your back, don't look away, and don't blink! Good Luck." Thanks for watching and any comments are very welcomed!
  15. This is MOC of March 2014. It has been exhibited at the exhibition DoubleBrick Fest 2014 at Dolgoprudny, Moscow region. I always wanted to portray a scene from some film. I chose this film because this scene depicts a challenge to those who sets the rules. As punishment for a past rebellion, each of the 12 districts of the nation of Panem is forced by the victorious Capitol to annually select two tributes, one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18, to fight to the death in the Hunger Games. According to the rules, there can be only one winner. Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark of District 12 get to games and reach the end - which means that one must kill the other. But Katniss does not want to play by the rules of the Capitol, and offers Pete to eat poisonous berries together so that there was no winner of the Games. The trick works, frightened organizers of the Games hastily stopped the tributes and declared them the winners. Main view. Bigger view. A scene in the movie takes place near the Horn of Plenty - abstract metal construction, about which at the beginning of the Games the organizers placed the weapons and equipment for the tributes. Horn of Plenty in the film. It is a little bigger than baseplate 32x32. The whole structure is fairly fragile, as most of the plates are fixed at an angle. Inside the Horn of Plenty. In fact, my Horn is not very similar to the original, and it is not what I wanted, but, judging by the reactions of the visitors of out exhibition, it came really recognizable. And this is the main point! :) Rear view. View from above. Another view. Katniss' bow, quiver and backpack. From Peeta's view. From Katniss' view. Minifigures.
