    Delicious! I love me a bit of Blacktron. This really delivers on impact and build quality too!

    I'm about as non purist as they come. I like to try and make both purist and non purist figs from the parts available. Sometimes Lego hasn't got round to doing things. i think Lego does take note of the customising community - Look at how popular the early superhero figs were before the Batman lego first came out. Another example is of how lego came round to printing tshirt arms. All of these things were massive in the customising community before Lego embraced what people wanted! I say do whatever you like! I love Brickwarriors stuff, however I do agree that sometimes the extra detail detracts from the overall product as it gets lost in the one colour mold. the trident is a good example - it's not an upgrade on the lego one but if the binding came in brown on it I would buy it all day! I guess the thing with these custom parts is there are plenty of people who having used the custom part would make a fantastic job of then painting that detail! I'm also a weirdo totally happy to make non purist lego figs but highly unlikely to use non lego bricks in a build unless for a specific competition!

    Fantastic parts use all round and super presentation!
  4. I think the series is pretty good, I adore the Wizard of Oz figs. they totally nailed em! I wish they had been out a while back when I did my oz figbarf. I don't like the K-pop style figs but the Oz figs, Abe and Rex Dangervest make up for it. There are some quite cool accessories especially the Abe hat hair and the golf club!
  5. What an absolutely magnificent creation! A true testament to teamwork and creativity! Hats off to all involved looks to me that everyone bought their A-game and individually people hit it out of the park too! Well done all!

    What a fabulous build! You’ve nailed the shaping and all the functions are super! I bet you scored some massive and deserved cool dad points with your son. Bonus points for doing something so organic in technic! I am totally blown away by this! I

    Thanks Pal it was a struggle to get detail in to such a small scale but I am pleased with the result! Thanks Buddy by the time I saw the competition was running there were so many cool cars I knew I couldn't build anything better so thought I better do something different so it might stand out a bit.

    Contest: Lester's Big Adventure!

    Posted mine just now! having some issues with embedding the photo so have put link and pic in post! I am on an ancient mac and it doesn't seem to let me pos the image in the thread. I think I am being stupid! Any help would be much obliged! EDIT: Fixed it! logged in on a pc and it worked a treat! :) stooped old mac!
  11. Letters Cliff-Top copter is great for scouting out routes through the jungle or flying short distances across lakes or foothills. His toolbox has everything he needs including a nice selection of sandwiches! Lester has stopped here to enjoy the view from above a valley and perform some routine maintenance.

    It's worked out great for you not having that part. I particularly like the mudguards and the fold down sides! Plenty of storage space and the little petrol can is ace!

    I do purist sets as well but I think the key is in what you have said yourself "limit" - I do purist builds for competition and when it works but these figs are better for the extra options available here. I wanted more tattoos and some little extra's. I totally understand other peoples preference but why paint in black and white when you have so many other colours at your disposal I will be producing a purist collection of 18 for the GoH anniversary challenge soon. I hope you like them! Most of the custom parts here are for flourish - truth be told I made a lot of them purist first but the diversity was far less striking and the colours just aren't available. e.g. I started with all lego capes at the start and plainer arms and hands. Didn't really like it. I have 1000s of minifigs so I cycled through all manner of bits and bobs before I got here. I prefer to use the best bits I can (in my eyes) rather than settle for less interesting parts just to conform. I guess its all a matter of taste.
