    [MOC] Star Wars: The X-Wing Story

    "Impressive... Most impressive." This is insane. It's such a shame LEGO still hasn't made a truly accurate windscreen, it's only really bothered me since they released the newest model and it's sooo close... but not there yet. Yours looks nigh perfect, how sturdy is it? Can you hold it by the nose or body, or the wings? Great work!

    Future Star Wars Sets

    I' love to see a Geonosis Arena with some partially brick-build arena beasts. It's such an iconic location, and always liked the beasts (especially the Acklay, they bring back good memories from the OG Battlefront on Felucia), I'm surprised we haven't received one yet! Battlefront 2 is going to Geonosis this November... ah well. Who knows?
  3. Dare I ask... will we ever see Star Wars walkers with proper articulation? My Rogue One AT-ST looks great... but that's just it. It looks great. The head turning feature is cool as ever. Considering that AT-STs have about 4-5 points of articulation in the legs, I'm really bummed that a set from 2007 has more articulation than one from 2016. And this goes for more sets than just the AT-ST, the small walkers in battle packs (like the Imperial pack from 2017) have been incredibly lacking. The legs for them often have either one point of articulation (AT-ST, AT-DP). That, or they have more, but their orientation prevents them from bending forward much further than a standard upright position. They also only bend on one axis, so even if they have a decent number of joints, they can't properly plant their feet on slightly uneven terrain. No ankle or hip articulation also mean you can't shift their balance, a key issue when posing other figures. The ball-joints from both larger Constraction figures and the smaller Mixel joints would be amazing on those sets, at least for the "hips" and ankles on it. I understand that the 5 points an AT-ST has would be a bit ridiculous and not feasible for a LEGO set for children, but for me at least 3 points is a minimum I'd like to see on most figures or mechs. Oh well, what are your thoughts?
  4. Good news, everyone! I think I've seen every episode more than 5 times over.
  5. Hi there, how's it going? Cartoons are fun, and some get widespread recognition and praise. You've got your Spongebob Squarepants, Kim Possible, Phinieas and Ferb, Teen Titans, Adventure Time, Powerpuff Girls, etc... but have guys ever watched and liked any shows as a kid that no one else talks about anymore? Myself, I just started re-watching My Life as a Teenage Robot on Hulu, and I was having a good ol' time. Fun style, I love the Metropolis-styled world inspired by early pulp science fiction. There was also a show I enjoyed called The Secret Saturdays I loved as a kid. What about you guys? Thanks, and have a good one!
  6. So... The Clone Wars is coming back. That's nice. After all the doom and gloom I've heard for the "cancelled" B2 and AR-RT, do you think they'll be released now after the positive reception to the news?

    [MOC] Umarak the Gatherer

    Awesome, this is so clever... first, I really like the idea of this alternate gentle Umarak, and you use that wonderfully here. I like the greenery growing across him, it looks so beautiful, especially the budding flowers on the right arm! Your choices of color are great too, browns, tan, dark green, and the gold help him feel truly good and natural. Nick said it earlier, but those hooves are brilliant, and a great way to reference Umarak's original skeletal-piston design! The Rey skirt and viking shield look great, and I love the entirely gold antlers! That transparent Hau -I'm so jealous, by the way ; )- looks perfectly ethereal to fully realize this character. Wonderful work!

    Shadow Lord Tahu

    That is incredible. I'm really jealous of that mask, it looks perfect! I love the use of Whenua's mask as shoulder armor, the hunched stature and the fire coming off of his left arm. he just looks evil...

    [MOC] Agents: the Glowfish

    Holy Gadunka! Finding and using all those glowing elements couldn't have been easy (so many Takadox and Gadunka shells...) , it looks magnificent in the dark! I like the use of the tendril bits for his mouth, like the terrifying beast is really just a harmless filter-feeder, but I digress. Great work!

    [MOC] The Necromancer

    Such a gentleman! The Karzon faceplate always looks good, I like the minifig capes you use on him! The Ruby scepter and magma orb make him look stupendous as well, nice work!

    WIP feedback thread

    Hiya! Well, I was at a friend's house recently, and she has a decent collection of old LEGO sets. Barely any are from this century, aside from some bips and bobs from Harry Potter and Orient Expedition, from what I could recognize she's got stuff from Forest Men, old Town, a lil' bit from Classic Space, Futron, and what inspired me most of all... Blacktron! I think the pieces are from the Invader, Alienator, and I believe the Battrax. I tested myself to make something of the pieces I scavenged from her collection, and here's what I made! This is a Blacktron Gunship, half-finished : /. I'm gonna finish this puppy in LDD, as much as I'll miss those epic printed pieces. I'd love suggestions, but here's the kicker... I want to update this using only pieces circa 1990. I'm thinking of adding turret/scout ships that detach, to better emulate the original ship designs. Any thoughts?

    Need help identifying this piece

    ...Did you mean, this? Hope this helps!
  14. Yeah, they're neat, but I think they only have dark green in 'em. Still, I really like the molding, they have these "tears" of trans green that run down from their eyes to their neck.

    [MOC] Nidhiki the Fallen Toa

    I... I don't know what to say. That's insane. The level of detail crammed into every centimeter is astonishing. The colors are great, and concentrating each color in different parts of his body was really smart. I love the tubes sticking out of him going into his waist and arms, they make him feel much more haphazard. That head construction is beautiful, I adore the parts usage (Axxon's blades, the Ninjago blades, the wolf head...). This is awesome. I hate to ask though... what's meant to be his eyes? The white blades, the green spots, or something else, I'm not sure.
