  1. Fallout would be such a good D2C/small line, the sets could be broken down into a Vault, a Raider Settlement, and a Red Rocket station. The general idea of Fallout has a lot of potential, a good amount of villains are bugs/mutated creatures that’d make a great enemy for the sets.

    Thanks a million!

    [MOC] Harry Potter 4702 Remake

    Thank you! And trust me, once you’re ready to make some MOCs, I know they’re gonna be good! Thank you! Maintaining it and having it feel like a dungeon was pretty hard but apparently it’s pretty good!

    [MOC] Harry Potter 4702 Remake

    Thank you so much! I thought transitioning old and new would be a bit troublesome but it’s proving itself worthwhile!
  5. I started this at about 9AM and it's finished around 2PM. That's kinda nice, huh? The original set doesn't have too much to it, started off as an idea to split the 8x8 into three sections ala 2 2x8's on hinges with a 4x8 in the middle but that was idiotic and I immediately ditched the idea. The mirror does turn to reveal the stone, an inaccuracy to the film but a fun feature I decided to keep regardless. And of course, the figures.
  6. Today I am showing off my remake of 4711, Flying Lesson. It's a pretty small scene in the film so the set itself was understandably very small. What I've done is scale it up quite a bit in terms of pieces. I figured the best addition would be another fig along with some exterior of sorts. So the highlight of the remake will obviously be the wall I've made. The color scheme is on par with the Harry Potter revamp using dark bluish grey rather than sand green for the tops of Hogwarts. While it is a bit bland in comparison to sand green, I think the additional colors of nougat and reddish brown benefit much more from it. If you read my writeup for 4751, you'll also note that I tend to offset parts of the build, in this case, it's the spires up on the top. I turned the cone to not line up with the 2x2 dish for a reason, I see it's a technique used in the microscale Hogwarts to portray windows so I figured it would be fitting to offset those. The play feature is a fairly simple button that in turn launches Neville off of the statue (or wall, where there are two connection points with the 1x1 tiles). This is a very accurate play feature to the film in which his cape tears and he breaks his arm as a result of hitting the ground. Nothing too complicated I hope. The remake compared to the original set in terms of what the original looked like. Now that it's done, tell me what you think! I'd love to hear anything in relation to this. Next up might be Slytherin Common Room or the Final Confrontation

    [MOC] Harry Potter 4751 Remake

    Thank you so much! I was nervous about the height, so was my light box and lighting. It all found a way though. I think photography is the thing I talk about the least but it takes a lot to get a photo like that just right. Thanks again! I’m working on getting the Duelling Club as well, I’m really excited to show off some ideas!

    Thanks! I have a few up my sleeves ;) Update of sorts: I purchased 4702, 4726, and 4735. So take that as you will!

    [MOC] Harry Potter 4751 Remake

    Thank you! I didn’t like the original set kinda just hiding the slopes, this build in my opinion looks like a slice out of something bigger. The lower level is probably my favorite part as well. Not much made me happier than shaping and designing the lower half. The top was too frustrating for me. Now let’s see if I can do it without a vignette base.

    We probably won't, but hey, we can wish! Thanks as well!

    Thank you! I love the aesthetic of it and what a unique color to use. I’m glad this brings back the good memories!

    I made an imgur album full of WIP shots of this build so you can see what it looked like before a lot of changes. You may be as frustrated as I was making this! https://m.imgur.com/a/SaUv5qL
