    MOC: The Moth-Mobile

    Thank you everyone--this was a fun build, and I'm happy everyone seems to enjoy it. Those are great guesses! All I'm gonna say is one them has a pickle-cannon. That's all I'm gonna say! Thank you! I figured there would be some members of the community interested in this. Despite his appearances in Lego, Killer Moth doesn't seem to have too many actual builds. Now I just have to get to work on a Moth-Cave!

    MOC: The Moth-Mobile

    The Moth-Mobile As is well established fact, Killer Moth is without a doubt the most feared and successful criminal mastermind...to ever hover--menacingly--near streetlights within the city limits of Gotham between 8:00 and 9:45 PM. Along with his trusty sidekick partner co-boss Firefly, the two villains have conquered all within their sight! And it's all thanks to...the Moth-Mobile? I've finally finished what is surely to be my most popular of Moth themed builds, the Moth-Mobile. An idiotically designed monstrosity, with the color scheme of an exploded paint factory, that liberally steals aesthetics from multiple different lesser Batmobiles of a number of different eras, while simultaneously throwing out all those important little things like ground clearance, seat belts, and even the barest hint of structural support around the driver's seat face. The Moth-Mobile! This is the most dangerous vehicle on the road, particularly for those who sit inside it. It has duel mounted machine guns and a battering ram face. The uniquely shaped cockpit is sculpted entirely out of a thin layer shatter proof glass, so you can really see everything coming your way! Also no trunk space. Two neon spoiler wings are attached at the back--to both bring up debilitating flashbacks of Batman & Robin as well as give you the false impression that it can fly. It can't. The back mudguards too might remind you of Batman v Superman, in case you were not angry enough. But don't worry, the large Tumbler-esque tires at the back will surely make you wish this was a Tumbler. It isn't. As you clearly know, the Moth-Mobile was well crafted, and as such it has room for two full passengers and their legs! Styled in a tandem-bicycle form the seats and this interior are also fashionable. I mean just look at that pink leather! And who needs doors when you can climb right in through the sun-roof. That was intentional too! Go get em' boys! --- Well that was fun. I built this like, six or seven months ago--whenever the first pictures of Firefly leaked--and I've been waiting for his physical release to show this off, because you can't have Killer Moth without Firefly. It was an arduous wait to say the least. I'm rather happy with how this vehicle turned out, particularly its utterly gaudy design. Also I'm gonna try something new, so let's see how this goes: As I know Killer Moth is rather popular in the Lego community--due in part to his frequent appearances in the Lego games and multiple physical minifigures--I did take the liberty to preemptively create "instructions" of the Moth-Mobile (as well as my Catmobile) using Bricklink's new Stud.io system. I've never used Stud.io before, so if they're a bit rough then...oh well. You can download the free files of the Moth-Mobile and Catmobile from my Bricklink Studio page. Enjoy! And make you drive fast and recklessly kids!
  3. What a coincidence in timing! @Holodoc I'll be at Brickworld too...but perhaps we could arrange some sort of EB Skype call between the two collective groups? The Ultimate Eurobricks Convention Crossover event!
  4. Maybe the day after we get the New 52 Superman from Lego Batman 3...
  5. Nah, it just smells like bullshit. I wouldn't put any stock into that. That is in no way a credible source, at all, whatsoever.

    MOC: Gingerbread Express

    The Gingerbread Express All Aboard! So this year, my sister told me I was to make her a gingerbread town, ice rink, and train (among other unrelated things she wanted after browsing Lego Reddit, and all its random wonders). After negotiating, I talked her down to just the train--fortunately! While I do own two trains, this is the first time I've ever built my own. It was an experience. I don't intend to make any more anytime soon however, because I'm not about the life of spending four dollars per wheel. Nonetheless, I'm very happy with how it turned out! Gingerbread creations seem to be all the rage this year, but a gingerbread train was something different. I choose to forgo any real lattice work, which is common for the style, and instead utilize a couple fist fulls of tooth plates I picked up years ago from a PAB wall. The frosting technique, while rudimentary, really started to give the train a cool gooey look, so as I built the rest of the four cars I just went all in! Gingerbread Engine This was both the easiest and most difficult car to build, and its still not right. Getting the wheels to work correctly was a challenge (again, having never designed my own train, all the necessary dimensions/techniques were just unknown to me), but the goop just really worked here! I particularly like the strands of frosting that pour at the back. Gingerbread Hot Chocolate Car For the coal car, I went with a big bright cup of hot chocolate. The train is built using the 9V system, so this cup was largely used to somewhat cover the motor box. I suppose it would have made more sense to incorporate the motor in to the engine (since the motor now just pushes the engine itself forward), but I chose to put it here to keep the engine aesthetically pleasing. Any who, the addition of a giant chocolate chip cookie, peppermint sticks, and a chocolate frog was just icing on the cake. Also icing, added that too. Here you can also see the peppermint sticks that are used to attach the cars to one another. Gingerbread Cargo Car While I wasn't necessarily setting out to make a Christmas themed train, I wanted hints of that--specially in the form of a flatbed with presents. But once I had the flatbed, I just knew I needed to add a large flat gingerbread tree cookie! The giant tree cookie is geared into one of the wheels, so it spins when the train is moving. I of course threw in a bunch of presents in there too, from boxes of LEGO to cellphones and teddy-bears. Gingerbread Caboose For the caboose, I wanted a really cute, tiny car. I used the same poor-mans lattice work from the engine here, to tie the train together, but all in all this was a rather simple end car. --- Thanks for checking this out!
  7. Failed! You've learned nothing from this theme!

    Ok everyone, back to set discussion only, please. Thanks.

    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part 2019 Set Discussion

    The set in question was sold on two separate, publicly visible, eBay listings--how those two sellers acquired the set to sell is their own business, if it was though illegal means then it is up to eBay and the appropriate authorities to deal with. Once the images entered the public consciousness however, they are out there. Please do not call out other members as thieves for seeing something with their eyes on Instagram and then wanting to talk about it here. -- Back to set discussion everyone. All set discussion.

    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part 2019 Set Discussion

    Well I don't know about anyone else--but I think this might be the best Lego Movie set yet! I hoped we would get some great Mad-Max builds, and while the first wave sets didn't have much of that, this D2C has it in spades! The build is so dense and I'm very impressed that the detail continues 360 degrees around--the back looks just as good as the front! An instant buy on sight for me! Also--the famed return of the barbed wire piece!

    MOC: Hogwarts Castle Clock Tower

    Harry Potter is making a resurgence in Lego and with it comes the return of great custom Hogwarts creations! ETELENZOS92 has built his own version of the Hogwarts Clock Tower, complete with a fully lit interior. Head on over to the Licensed Forum to check out this magical build!
  12. This thread is getting a bit off track—please do not discuss the MCU films or trailers here. This thread is for set discussion specifically—trailer speculation does not equal set discussion. Please take all film and trailer talk over to Culture and Multimedia. Thanks!

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Let’s take that tweet with a grain of salt for now...developing a film is way different than actively working on a green-lit one. So that is by no means confirmation a LBM2 is happening.
  14. Anyone can write anything on Brickipedia. Don't expect those sets to be made.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Don’t read too much into that artwork. Stuff like that is not made by the set design team, rather outsourced artists. They are given lots of leeway in their ability to design and include characters in styles and costumes that were never intended to come to fruition—at least as they are show here.
