    [MOC] Rescue in Antarctica

    It’s been 92 days since I’ve landed in this godforsaken part of the world, to conduct a research that would change the future of mankind. Huh... It’s even funny now, how wrong I was to think this was such a big deal. And then, all went to hell... Staring into the vastness of the sea, the greatness of the mountains, the magnitude of these glaciers, I understand now how small we are. How nothing but specs of dust in an everchanging world we represent. Humankind... Huh... Such a vague idea, it has become. You are all so far away... And me, I’m alone, forgotten, travelling with the sea, given to the cold winds of an inhabited land. It’s like I’m part of it. Staring from the edge of the world into... nothing. I never felt so alone. Yet, strangely enough, I never felt so... alive. ... Radio static* “Central, this is Eagle 05. Please respond. Over?” “This is central coming in. Eagle 05, what is your status? Over.” “Central, I’m flying over the Volta Glacier chain, approximately 38 hours after the disaster... Uh... It’s a mess from up here. A big chunk of the rock has broken apart. I’m flying over the crack, now... Heck! It ripped right where the research facility used to be. There. You see? The crack must be about 50 kilometers... Uh... Central, please standby... What? Are you serious?... Central, there’s something on the rocks. It looks... Is that a person? Uh... We’re checking it out, please standby” “Eagle 05, please respond. Over?... Eagle 05...” “Central, this is Eagle 05. We are heading back to the station. Uh... How long ago did you say Dr. Mallorie Lynch went missing? I think... I think we found her!” ________ Louis of Nutwood. This is a re-rebuilt of the LEGO City set 7903, now performing a rescue on the sea with some minor modifications since last upload Rescue Helicopter MH-7903 . Hope you all like it. Cheers!

    [MOC] SHIPtember: The M.O.C.H.A.

    I'm honored you liked the color scheme and the greebling work, Professor! It took me a while to figure the scale, but once I found the space for the cockpit, there was no turning back. Thanks for the support! I'm glad you like it funky, The Stad! The coloring was a last minute adjustment once I figured I would not have enough white tiles, but I'm happy it works and you liked it too. Cheers, man! Thanks for the support.

    [MOC] LL885- New Coalition Repair Freighter

    Absolutely mind-blowing! Your signature color scheme is so well though of, and works perfectly together with your personal armada. But seeing those little yellow mechanical arms working together is just so soothing and fulfilling! I truly love the landing bay as well. I'm always in awe for minutes when checking your ships, as little details start popping off the screen. Amazing work, man. Keep the orange armada growing! Cheers!

    [MOC] SHIPtember: The M.O.C.H.A.

    I'm flattered you like it, Ecc. It means a lot coming from such an inspiring builder! And I'm happy it makes you reminisce a bit of the good ol' times. Cheers, man! Thanks for the much welcomed support. Thank you so much, dear neighbor! It's awesome to have such friendly people around the block. Really glad you liked the color scheme, as it was a last-minute adjustment. But I'm happy with the result and satisfied it pleases you. Thanks for the support, brother! Cheers. Thank you, sir Cerberus! I'm honored to have your appraisal. Glad you liked the colors as much as I did. Thanks for the support, man. Cheers!

    [MOC] SHIPtember: The M.O.C.H.A.

    Thanks, Lego Train 12 Volts! I'm thrilled you liked it. Sometimes I also have to take a second look to see if it's actually LEGO. Hahah. Thanks, Jintai! I'm happy you liked it. Thanks for the support! Thanks, MarvelBoy for such a heartwarming comment! I'm flattered you like the color scheme, as it was a last-minute adjustment, after finding out that my white tiles would not suffice. But I'm very pleased with the final result, and I'm happy you like it too. These past few months, I've tried to step away from my favorite genre, away from my comfort zone, just to feel different vibes. And hearing your approval only makes me more encouraged. I've discovered there's a whole new world outside our comfort zones, and we need to practice this more frequently. Thanks for the support, brother! I truly appreciate it. Amazing comment, Ragana! Glad you liked it, Captain. And thanks for the support. :D

    [MOC] SHIPtember: The M.O.C.H.A.

    The M.O.C.H.A. An E-7 explorer short-range scout vessel, intended for spatial reconnaissance missions and troop deployment. With enough space for a crew of six and a small vehicle, the M.O.C.H.A. is equipped with two laser shooters (one up front and another next to the cockpit) and a single-powered 16 ion-drive thruster. This beauty tops on 102 studs length. It was planned and built between September 13th and September 30th. This is the first spaceship I've ever built and I can't figure why I haven't done this before. It was a blast! Running through some difficulties - a weak structure, lack of plates, lack of tiles and color scheme troubles, to name a few - just made me want more of this, and I couldn't be happier with the result. Hope you all like it. Would love to hear your thoughts and feedback. Built for SHIPtember 2020 Louis of Nutwood

    [MOC] Sushi to go

    Glad to hear it, Dersy! These are my favorite as well.

    [MOC] Sushi to go

    I'm flattered you liked it, Vindicare. Sushi is something that became very important to me, specially since as a kid it made me realize how much is food representative of one's culture. I've seen so many amazing food-builders and I though it was time for me to build my own meal. I'm glad you liked it. Thanks for the support!

    [MOC] Sushi to go

    Long time ago, I was just a kid who loved building LEGO and playing soccer with my friends. One of those friends had narrow eyes, black hair and he was rather quiet. I learned his family came from a land far away, on the other side of the planet called: Japan. On his birthday, he invited me to his house to spend the day. To me, a couple of things were a bit odd – taking our shoes off before entering the house, the apparent lack of furniture, and how everything was mainly white and clean. But nothing struck me as much as when we stopped for lunch. First, we sat on the floor. Second, the table was so low it didn’t look like a table at all. But third – you guessed it – the food was raw. Beautifully presented! But raw. As a 7-year-old kid accustomed to eating rice, beans, chicken (you know, warm meals) I did my best to hide my despair. Of course, my best was not even good, so his mother, very politely smiled at me and showed me how to use the silverware – I mean, chopsticks. To my relief, both my wooden sticks (called Hashi) were connected by a ribbon, which made things a lot easier to figure out. So, I gathered my strength, kept my cool, pinched that slice of reddish cold fish, dragged it all the way to my mouth, praying that it would not fall off, and chewed it. And it tasted so, so... good! Something about the freshness, the flavor, the texture? I’m not sure, I was seven. Seven-year-olds don’t know these things. To be honest, it probably felt unpleasant. But it was like being transported to that land all the way on the other side of the world. I was experiencing another country, another culture, another reality. And that was the most amazing thing of all. Later that day, back at home, my mom asked: “So, how did it go?”, and I answered: “You will not believe me... but I’ve just been to Japan!” ________ Now, I have spent years looking for a place that would serve me the same thing I ate at my friends house years ago. But even though there are as many sushi restaurants in my neighborhood as there are bakeries or drugstores, nothing compares to the experience I had as a kid. I found out that their food was adapted to the local taste – meaning we added cream-cheese, mango, jelly and made it our own Brazilian-Japanese Food. I’ll be honest and say I’m not the biggest fan of all that mixture of fruits and sweets and dairy with the sticky rice. But isn’t it fulfilling to think that these two almost contrasting cultures came together to create something that is now part of who we are? Just like our sushi, culture is about mixture, about welcoming the strange and embracing the new. Try new dishes with an open heart, learn from new places with an open mind. And who knows? Something great might come of it. ________ Built for the Brazilian Contest "Bloco by Bloco" held on Discord, in partnership with LUGBrasil, Challenge I - to build something that represents my life and my home, depicting a Brazilian daily life. Hope you all like it! Cheers.
  12. Aaah, YES! The northern winds are pushing us forth into an abyss of pride and glory! I raise my axe to the sky and thank the gods for letting us live another day to fight another battle. Skol! I scratch my ale-soaked beard and cling another iron ring for myself and my foes to know the countless battles I've been to; the countless times I've laughed at the face of misfortune and grown stronger in the process. For we do not fight to win, we fight to justify our time among the living and to worship the ones who give us strength and inspiration. But destiny is the only truth, and it cannot be changed. Skol! Sir Garmadon and all the judges, you give us your time and inspiration, your leadership and wisdom. And for this, I thank you all. For without you and your commitment, there would not be a reason to fight through and keep building. I raise my horn and drink to you. And to all the contributors, I shout once more. You are the greatest inspirations of all. I did not know this land you call Varlyrio, but fell in love with its rich story and deceiving past, so I plan on building a little shack to go to every once in a while when I get tired of all this snow.. I can only wish the future ruler is wise enough not to poke the northern bears of Mitgardia, standing on top of the charts once more. Skol!

    Love it! Kind of reminds me of the Tunnel Transport from the Rock Raiders series. Beautiful work, mate.

    [MOC] The peculiar inn of Mrs. Gertrudes

    Fabulous work with this charming inn, L.Baixinho! It's clean with just the right amount of detail to be an official set on its own. Beautiful array of colors and the rockwork is amazing. Keep it up, my friend! Cheers!
