  1. Okay, anybody try to do trans-dark blue and have any hints? -Tohst
  2. The Speed Champions line has been a breath of fresh air from Lego for me. Small, impeccably designed sets that were a joy to build and play with. But....But....I am a space head at heart. And I kept saying why doesn't Lego make space sets like these. And then I'd say something about how it is Lego and they don't need to do squat. I can do it. So, MOC 1 of the Space Champions line combines: https://brickset.com/sets/6872-1/Xenon-X-Craft with https://brickset.com/sets/75891-1/Chevrolet-Camaro-ZL1-Race-Car to get the Xenon X2-Craft. Look at how happy he looks with his Space Champion upgrade. Maybe by the time I get to MOC 2 of this theme I'll figure out a way to photograph it so it looks good. It is much better in person and very very swooshible. A few more pictures are there on Flickr. Anyway, I hope you like it. Comments, even negative ones, are always appreciated. -Tohst
  3. I'd be tempted by Poncho Luke if he was also Floppy Hat Luke. -Tohst
  4. Thank you for this. I tried this out using a stocking suspended from a skewer so the pieces were protected. The trans-clear pieces worked great. The trans dark clear.....not so much. The color was terrible and well, you can see for yourself. A process that made trans clear look trans yellow make trans dark clear warp. Also, I tried a bohrok canopy that is molded in two colors and used tape to tape over as much of the blue as I could. The results were, ummmm, less than satisfactory but there were areas the tape protected so I'm thinking of trying again with something like liquid bandage over the blue areas. -Tohst

    [MOC] - Lenny's Classic Space Rover

    That is pretty great. It looks like it could be a set from back in the day but with a few touches that make it better than what Lego itself would have developed. Like the red disks on the tires. Lego wouldn't have thought anyone was nostalgic for red hubbed tires but they would have been wrong. -Tohst
  6. And I didn't realize how much I wanted a classic space guy in orange until I looked at the pink suited guy through the trans-yellow Spaceship Spaceship SPACESHIP canopy. -Tohst
  7. And so happy the new 'old' space helmets can easily be distinguished from the originals thanks to the large mold divot on top. I mean, they look great but nobody is going to try to pass them off as an original with that obvious change. But why, oh why, couldn't they have given us light bley air tanks for the front of the buggy? -Tohst who with that statement is not looking a gift horse in the mouth so as complaining the horse has only been brushing and flossing but not using a water pik.
  8. I thought that's what turmeric was for. -Tohst

    MOC: The Yellow Castle

    Nice build! Did you base any of the features directly on the castles you were using for inspiration? I'm thinking less like the gatehouse and more like the window decorations. Tohst

    Nexo Knights 2016

    Now this is the most interesting thing to me so far in this thread. What are the homages to the 1978 castle in the Chima Lion Castle? and in a futile attempt to make it on topic, what can we deduce about the new Nexo sets and possible homages in them from this information? -Tohst. Really I tried.
  11. Those MOCs are very nice. I had two of the space Tente sets and I thought the pieces were awful. Just very light and brittle. But until Blacktron came around it gave me a 'bad guy' to go against the Classic Space Corps. Looking at some of the other sets I see at least one Tente piece that was copied almost exactly by Kreo. http://www.latenteteca.com/wp-content/uploads/img/modelos/AstroKit.jpg The white piece in this picture looks very much like one of the Kreo pieces I thought was an original. I guess they were, ummmm, inspired by more than just Lego. -Tohst --edited to fix the link....hopefully
