  1. Ok so I have the Cloud Cuckoo Palace, Ice Cream Machine, Lord Business' Evil Lair, The Flying Flusher, Creative Ambush and Rescue Reinforcements plus Gail, Lincoln, Larry, Shakespeare, Taco Tuesday Guy, Where Are My Pants? Guy, President Business, Hard Hat Emmet and Scribble Face Bad Cop from the CMFs line. I am also intending to get the spaceship when it comes out. Which other sets should I buy if I want to have all the main characters in the movie?

    I saw the movie today but it went by so fast that I cant remember which characters got enough screen time to be considered "main characters".

    Already have Batman from previous sets so I dont see any reason to buy the drop-ship just to get him.

    you need metalbeard, the metalbeard duel set is great anyway


  2. pretty coool. i like the lower leg, and the way you made HF feet into weapon on the shoulder. and, just a suggestion, if you put your moc on a more empty background next time, it would be great.

    I must say, I love the legs. Unlike the Evo XL Walker's chicken-like leg design, this is sufficiently bulky all throughout while still having a unique and mechanical look to it.

    thanks! that was the one thing bugging me so much about the xl, so i had to figure out a workaround here. only problem is the hips are REALLY weak, but friction joints can fix that, i was just staying as pure as i could to the sets.

    and yeah, ill try to set up some kind of white box thingie to take pictures in next time.

    just noticed the canister was off in the first pic, i was trying to find a way to attatch both canisters side by side. didnt work btw.


  3. hey, so i was abe to pick up the xl, the jet, and the stealth mechs yesterday! i decided to try to throw the stealth and the xl together, so this is the result. sorry for the pics, my cam is busted, ill try to get better ones soon. this build can be made using the parts from the aformentioned mech sets, plus 2 extra y-joint parts in the hips.

    "EVO, ROCKA, COME IN! The auto-builder prototype has been damaged severely, we cannot produce the parts to replace your fallen mechs! you may be able to use it to re-attatch the usable parts of your old mechs into one larger machine, rocka, see if you can fix the machine while evo designs the machine!"

    first moc posted up here, so give some feedback if you dont mind! i will replace the pictures once i can get better pics, but i may need to rip this one up for parts, so the next pics may have a slightly different build.


  4. from what i saw, metalbeards back was constructed pretty differently, he had a few extra chains, a different cannon arm with different connections and a third bit (a scope?), the "ammo wheel" had a dish on the back of it, didnt appear to be on a technic beam, and had black ball joints instead of 1x1 cylinders, a few differences in the flag pole bit, taller legs (by atleast 2 studs), and (this one may have just been me not paying attention) it didnt looklike he had the metal eye patch his set form has.

    DON'T GIVE ME IDEAS

    stringers boomer machine: large, boombox type sonic cannons slung over the shoulders, trans blue hex shields in place of hands. maybe wings? dunno.

    also, for some reason i imagine nex would have 4 arms and different tools on each one, being the tech-y guy he is


  6. Not sure if anyone can help me with this...

    dsc09832.jpg

    I just don't know which way to go with it, it started as a submarine but I couldn't find a proper roof for the cabin (which was hard with that windshield) so I then had the Idea that it would be a snow hovercraft (with ski's). For some reason I had to add those big orange wings which have no function at all for the moment. So then I had some kind of flying speeder in mind.

    Oh and in the mean time I found a sollution to close the cabin but it does not fit the current design.

    Anyway, this random building process resulted in a vehicle of which I can't say anymore what it is.

    I haven't encountered this building problem before...

    how about setting it up as a kind of transforming vesscile, with a air/hover mode to use those wings, a ski mode that doubles as landing gear, and an underwater/space mode with a roof.


  7. i would like to see a "kit up" wave. each hero built as what is now a 10 dollar set, but with a large pice of weaponry that is removable and has some feature (ex, large arm covers that go over the normal ones, with flip out blades.).

    the biggest hero and villain sets would be armoured mech suits that could be seperated into sections, and have the smaller weapons attatch on to them to upgrade the mechs. ex: furno having shoulder cannons, surge with a big lightning sword, bulk with super arms, and nexwith transforming multi tools, would combine with the hero mech, and boost up the power of the rider, a new guy named "darrek mechina", who has the power to link with machines in universe.

    villains would be "hakerz", a group who broke into the hf to upgrade themselfs and steal weapons, their mech would be black and red. and their add ons would be something like "scyth, gatling gun, fire arm, ect.", and their defeat in story would have furno and stormer geared up with tons of weapons taken from the mech basicaly sealing their mech shut with them in it.

    in sets only, the characters can actually combine with the mechs to bulk them up, but not in series.


  8. what if its an upgraded version of that drone stormer fought in von nebulas origin? you know, out of spite, von nebula models the heavy hitter villain bot' from the anti factory after the thing that made him go rouge in the first place to taunt stormer.

    or it could even be the new von nebula, just built up to look like a show version we havnt seen yet.


  9. I like how everyone is saying he's a placeholder when there is no proof he is. He could be a new villain that just came out of nowhere and decided to work for Von Nebula, for all I care. But honestly, where's the proof he is a placeholder?

    its just because he is almost exactly the same as black phantom just with different spikes on his head and slightly changed shoulders that physicaly can not be built in set form.


  10. Does anyone else wish that there were bigger hand molds for titan sized charecters?

    Not me, personally. Witch Doctor is perhaps the only titan-sized set big enough to need more than the standard hand piece, and once you get to a scale like that it would be more worthwhile to build hands from scratch using parts like Exo-Force robot arms than to have a separate specialized element for the task.

    thats the next thing im working on, if only i could get back into the imigur acount and post the last few pics i did...

    what im thinking is a new piece for a hand, witch would have fingers with every 2 fingers moulded together onto something the size of an exo force arm, a new hand piece with technic axle holes in the middle of them, so that you could use a bar and put 2 together with a standard y-joint and make a big hand using exo force arms as the fingers. still no clue what to use for the thumb though.

    also, since it would be redundant to draw it out, the one pices would each be made in translucent colors corresponding to the character they are used for, with a separate set of them in standard black included in the larger sets, to reflect a power upgrade that allows the hero core to be charged by kinetic motion in the story.


  11. Not impossible, just highly improbable. That means you can make it presentable, then start a CUUSOO project for it and you have chance to have it accepted.

    that is true, but i dont expect it to be good enough for me to upload any time soon. well, maybe once summer vacation starts and i have more time, or maybe a bit before then, but atleast a few months.


  12. This is pretty good, ever thought of starting a CUUSOO project for this?

    yeah, but i didn't for 2 reasons, 1- its not entirely fleshed out yet, i want it to be entirely presentable if and when i put it on cuusoo. and 2- cuusoo is meant to get individual sets released not entire themes, so its highly improbable that suggesting entirely revamping an entire building system would get through, no matter how many votes it has, unfortunatley.
