    New LotR action figures make me hopeful for Lego

    i've also noticed a lot of old lego licences came back up on lego ideas including Pirates of the caribbean and Lord of the rings so it seems as though Lego can get/use these licences again

    [MOC] The Lighthouse

    i will take a render of the insides, i am sure it overly complicated and im sure the lego guys can do it easier, but i had to use a fair amount to get the right shaping, it is modular some what, the main tower can be removed from the stone work circle, which is why i would love to try and get a room down there thank you for your support this bit was a pain to get right, the only way i could centre the middle beam was to use axles so i could slide them to the centre so the red and white tower pegs into these 3 round tiles and there is also 1x1s in each of the holes

    [MOC] Medieval Guard House

    thank you for the feedback, i am stupid for not thinking about the yellow faces i have spent the last 4 weeks pouring over a bunch of old castle sets for inspiration so im not sure how i messed that up, luckily i have chance to change it quick you are right looking at the images it does look quite empty there and thank you for adding it to the thread once i submit it i forgot to add this image, (ignore the head they will be yellow soon), i am sure the guys at lego can do a much nicer job of this but this is the overall design i have for the figures

    [MOC] The Lighthouse

    just want to say thanks to anyone from here who has supported this, i cant believe how fast its gone so far, my Nasa Spacecraft took almost a week to hit 100, this lighthouse has hit over 500 in just over two days its surreal

    [MOC] The Lighthouse

    nah its not a switch its meant to be a washed up bottle but the rendering engine i used didnt seem to like doing it so its black, the only feature is that a light brick can be added in the top so when you press the globe piece the lamp lights up

    LEGO Creator Expert 10271 Fiat 500

    i think the db5 and the fiat 500 may be slightly off i think the mustang and the VW were amazing, i think small curvy cars like the fiat 500 are harder to do especially when keeping the cost down the the build techniques simple

    A-Team Van - Lego Ideas

    After seeing that the A-team licence is now allowed back on lego ideas i have decided to clean up my old build, it takes inspiration from a few different vehicle builds, quite a lot of trucks, I originally built a version of this in 2018 after seeing a MOC by Willem G and Kevin8, their vans were the main inspiration especially for the tilt on the side panels (i have credited him for this amazing solution in my Ideas submission), i took their models apart and rebuilt them using my own techniques and details to hopefully make a better version, but over the years lego parts have changed a lot and so have techniques, so after a couple of years of messing around and looking at other techniques used on other builds of this van i am happy to present my version of this iconic vehicle, i believe thanks to the culmination of many MOCs, styles and builds ive seen over the years that this is one of the more screen accurate builds, one thing i think might be a little off is the front light bar, i think the parts i used were too thick, and as of yet i dont have the parts to build this so im unsure but i think the rear wheel/axle part might be an illegal build as it may put stress on the axle however i cant find out yet At the moment i am desiging the prints for each of the minifigures in photoshop, i think i will use the Mr T from Lego Dimensions maybe just adding so leg detail if anyone has any suggestions for the bull bars on the front please let me know or are they fine as it is?

    this is the remade version, built from scratch not following anyone elses work, i kept some thing from my other version but a lot had to be changed now that it is shorter and wider, but this is now my own moc so i can upload it to lego ideas

    A-Team Van - Lego Ideas

    Yeah that is true, still I have remade mine from the ground up to make sure it's a lot different this time so there can be no complaints, And yeah inspiration is a big part of life, and if this was a legal case I would win, the laws state that for it to be classed as your own work it needs to be 40% your own work, it's how companies can make unlicensed products, however I still decided to make a new version that is my own

    A-Team Van - Lego Ideas

    I think even though I did technically make it my "own" design I do understand Kevin's complaint, I used his model as reference and looking back I think I borrowed too much from it I personally didn't see it until looking back, I have since apologized, however thanks to the complaint from Kevin I spent all of yesterday rebuilding this van from the ground up to make sure it was my own, it doesn't look as good in some sections but I am proud of it as I can say its my own I also think that making such a popular vehicle/building comes with risks like this, you look at other mocs for ideas but when you are building you don't realise how much you are actually borrowing from them, I remember the same thing when the James bond theme was first allowed on Lego ideas there was about 8 cars that all looked very similar, but as I said I'm personally happier with my new design as it is my own design

    [MOC] 1:400 Willis (Sears) Tower

    looks great, simple yet effective the best way in my opinion, love the slanted road part like you i would love to see some bigger scale stuff (even though i dont have space) but like aussie said i cant even bare to think about how long and repetitive the build would be for this

    A-Team Van - Lego Ideas

    oh by all means its no coincidence, i was very upfront and transparent about the fact that my model is based upon yours and WillemG's (the guy who made the one on MOC pages), i can say with 100% honesty that i have not paid or used your instructions, i would be happy to show you, my model borrows a lot of your techniques and shaping i wont argue that because well they are perfect and pretty much the only way to do this in this scale, i mostly used your design to do the side panels and shape of the windscreen this is bassicly a remix/reimaging of 3 other designs as well as my own (https://www.ciit.edu.ph/art-plagiarism/ - read tips on How to Avoid Art Plagiarism) i took things that worked on others and used them as building blocks to create my own version, i have been working on this for close to a year as i wanted to change/improve things to make it more TV accurate, i noticed yours has an engine, 5 seats and the ammo/weapon box these are all things i was not able to fit inside mine due to the support structure and the way i have set my sliding door up, god knows how you managed to fit all that inside yours but i wasnt able to, my model is 1571 pieces (not including the base)

    A-Team Van - Lego Ideas

    it was always grey, honestly it was, this is the mandela effect in full force, my dad used to watch the show with me swears its all black, we even went to a car show with the actual van used there and it was grey topped, still he does not believe it the common theory/explanation is that some tvs back in the 80s a lot of TVs in peoples homes were poor quality, with bad pictures/colour grading so one some TVs the van would actually look all black from what i understand it is largely people from the USA who say the van was all black, perhaps the TVs over there didnt have the same colour making it harder to tell the difference between two dark shades i admit it is very hard to tell the difference, i 100% think its due to how people had their tv contrasts, Edit: you know what it seems like their maybe two prop vans used, one them used in wide shots is 100% grey but in the close ups where the van gets rammed its all black
