    Deep Freeze Scavenger

    I love seeing new additions or renditions to old castle and space themes. This is just another fantastic build. Sorta PT cruiser esk style to the original. Nicely done

    [MOC] Chocolate Red

    It almost kinda reminds me of nineball from armored core arena. A little bit.

    Not a problem.. in any case i recently stumbled acrossed a flickr page that used that design some 7 years ago... Lol boy do i feel behind the times.. but i guess it had not really caught on back then because his design wasnt reused by others. I dont mind anyone saving that pic. Im clearly not the original for it as its a 7yo design... Have fun :)

    Very true.. when i made the longbow, i was trying to bring the same energy of the still of costner as he was drawing his arrow. And of course with an arrow already in a bow being drawn wouldn't quite fit that energy. So most my thoughts were being as true to the still as i could for the figure most of all then the horse in background with a few trees hence to focus on the figure i purposely blurred the background a bit for that effect. I had also focused on the right hair and head which for some time had evaded me but of course i did settle for the stan shunpike head from the hp line and seinfeld's hair seamed to look about right.. Im very pleased with the overall look. So ill accept it not being a full purist figure this time round. But i do intend to pull more from that movie for other characters in my style. That movie is one of my favorites for robin hood, As historically inaccurate as it is. But that's kind of the fun of it to me. Thank you, im still kinda in the back atm my own self but im just having some fun and bringing a few random ideas and methods to the table. All it takes is that moment of ingenuity and you can get some notice. Im not by any means a top level builder... I have a long ways to go on buildings... I have some interesting ship designs and mechs.. and as for landscapes im below beginer level lol, but i am learning. My main strength is custom figures. Just have fun with it right? Cheers

    The main reason i try to go purist route is because i see that as a challange... Like, can it be done purist style.. I like that sort of limiting challange. And i dont hold anyone else to that standard. The only time i cringe is if something is cut and glued... Where parts will likely never be used the same ever again. Which to me kinda defeats the purpose of legos, but thats just my personal opinion and everyone has their own opinion so to me.. its all about the challange.

    Help with identifying parts/sets!

    https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=50747#T=C&C=15 Judging from its size comparison to the platform vader is on makes it 6x6 And the sharp wide exits at the back would make this part a sure bet plus you can barely see the 4 bits of the clips sticking out looking through the canopy

    I found captain xaviors channel to be interesting and amusing. I too have a channel but have not posted in a while. I also follow bricksie here an there from time to time. The plastic achitect is pretty chill too.

    How do you keep track of which parts you own?

    Im very much the same, too much to recall where each item is for the most part unless it was something paticularly interesting or of special design.. maybe a one off part.. hard to forget

    Thank you, I have seen that technique used on a moc before at least i think it was that technique... A certain forestmans tree fortress of sorts with some unidentifiable green vines in the tressles.. it also had a viking boat ends as part of the roof design with a nice stainglass window inside it. A little inspiration for something in the future for me... But otherwise that method might not make the best bowstring.. i think i will look into that official small gauge string from the early 90s. It might be thin enough to work. Maybe...

    So by most means i do consider myself a.. (ahem) purist builder. Tho i wont bash on anyone who isnt. This is more of an over the line sort of question.. or rather over the "thread" issue. I posted a build on flickr about a week ago which ill refference here. You can see i used a different method for the longbow. Given the pic i was basing this off of.. the longbow element would have looked out of place so i built my own longbow. Im not sure how many other builders have used a brickbuilt bow for a minifig, ive not come acrossed any others as of yet. I may be the first for this in paticular.. idk... An official lego rubberband was first attempted but was too narrow and tight. Lego string from the 90s might have worked idk... But all i had available was later lego string that was too thick and unweildly.. So i used some thread.. no stress on the parts, no damage so not illegal either right?.. win win right? But is it purist... Idk. What do the purist builders think? Lets keep it civil of course. Im open to oppinions and constructive critisism.

    [REVIEW] 43181 Raya and the Heart Palace

    The parts look fine to me.. plenty usable. The mini dolls i dont bother with.. wont complain about em either. The hair pieces are interchangable with minifigs for the most part so some use there too. I dont complain about stickers at all.. like the hair pieces, the stickers could always be used on different parts in different ways if prefered. Still lego product to me so usable if needed. Overall a nice set. I saw the movie, it was ok. If i ever got my hands on it... I would part it out for other projects. Lol
