    [MOC] Urtican Wellness Center

    Whoa. I still can't get over how you made those polar bears. Freakin' amazing!
  2. Thanks so much for the amazing review, as awlays Whitefang! This is a great series! So psyched to have another "traditional" series. That astronaut has some insane printing...
  3. Wait a second... okay, there's something wrong here. 10 PM GMT is 5 PM ET. EST is UTC-5. Alright, fine. But I know for a fact that I put my entry up before then. Why would I have put it up afterwards? I went to the site thinking I still had time, then saw it was closed. I didn't think it through and just went okay whatever. But no, now that I think about it, it's not right. Here' the email I sent to myself (from phone to laptop) with the images from my entry. You can see that time stamp is 4:24. Based on that, my post made it to the site at 4:41, not 5:41. Do the clocks on EB not follow daylight savings? Because here the clocks went back Nov. 1st. Something's wrong here, Mike. EDIT: Resolved! Didn't know the EB clocks ran an hour ahead. I'm stupid. Thanks again, Mike.
  4. Christmas is great, but with all the snow, cold weather, and slush, we can get pretty sick of the weather sometimes, even though snow is very pretty. Thusly, I think many of us would be willing to forgo the lovely snow this year and head for... Santa Atoll! The most festive (and admittedly tiny) island on Earth! Also, there's sun, surf, and rum for all! So this Christmas, don't stay home, don't go to Christmas Island, go to Santa Atoll! Now with 99% more rum than Christmas Island! Photos (Imgur):

    Mind blowing. Bravo.

    Fallout 4 - Red Rocket Refuelling Station

    Damn this is good. Every detail captures the rundown feel of the wasteland so nicely. The old rusty fire engine red colour, the old sign, and the overall art deco-y feel of it. The rocket ship is insanely good too. And is that Mr. Handy I spy in the corner of my eye? Overall, amazing, super outstanding work. You've seriously got a talent for this!

    Erebor - final with the movie!

    Holy mother of Smaug! :wub_drool: This is huuuuuuge! And you didn't even skimp on a single detail! Breathtaking. Unbelievable. Magical. Seriously, great job dude. You're clearly so talented it's insane.

    The Wall: Rome's Northern Frontier

    105 48 x 48 baseplates... Good God.. This is absolutely stunning! Every detail is perfect. From the Celtic camp to the fort to the wall to the temple(?) thing. Fantastic. You guys are amazing!

    The Ugly Bastard

    Great ship, I love the skull detailing.

    2016 Speed Champions Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Wow, I'm so psyched to see they're continuing this line! That R18 is beast, and more Porsche sets! Would have liked to see another F1 set or maybe a BMW M6 or something, but I'm happy with what we've got.

    10251 Brick Bank

    Money Laundering... Oh Lego, you never cease to amuse me. Can't say I love this one. The colours are a bit weird for me. Would have been nicer if the bank was all grey, IMO. The Detective's Office and the Parisian Restaurant are much nicer.

    [MOC] Shiptember: Mantrisse-class Exploration SHIP

    Very unique ship. Not exactly my type of thing, but the details looks seriously good. How stable is this thing? Its looks quite precarious!

    [LEGO Ideas] Skull Island - Skara Kikos

    This is insanely good. The gates, beach, and water is just fantastic. The skull is amazing. I love how you made it look rocky and realistic and didn't just build an actual skull. Outstanding work!

    [MOC] Attack of the giant squid

    Awesome work! The ship is awesome, and the use of Armada colours is a refreshing change. Well done on the setup and presentation of the minifigures onboard as well. The squid is freaking adorable. Great work.

    10249 Winter Toy Shop

    Damn. Although some of the updates look great, they really couldn't have come up with something different? I get that it's been a few years since the first one came out, but still... This has been a tradition of mine for several years, so there goes that. Needless to say I'm very disappointed at this news.

    Review: 75094 Imperial Shuttle Tydirium

    And on the seventh day, God did not rest... For he was too busy creating this review.

    Should LEGO sponsor a racing team?

    This would also be a great excuse for them to build some wicked racing sets.

    MOC: Tintin Moon rocket

    This is amazing. The scale of this is awesome. Is there any interior? From one Tintin fan to another, great work!
  20. I can't agree more, we've had so many series recently that were very specific. It would have been nice to get some more assorted figures. It's not like there's a shortage of ideas.
  21. Oh God, I really don't like this series... Just nothing here for me to use really. No need for haunted house accessories, haha. Maybe I'll pick up the pirate captain for the parts, the gargoyle to put on a building or two, and maybe the phantom cause he's pretty cool. Other than that, meh.

    BrickArms Summer 2015 Release: Past, Present, and Future

    A great release as usual, BA! I really should pick up another order, it's been a few years already.

    iBrix Lego wireless lights

    This looks fantastic and very innovative. However, 130,000 dollars for this kind of product is really steep considering that less people are into this than other tech projects on Kickstarter. Plus, $25 seems steep for such a small pack. It's obviously not a cheap system, but damn, for what you're getting, is it really worth it? Nevertheless, I've seen projects like this get ridiculously overfunded before. Hopefully they will find a way to lower their production costs. Maybe I'll back this after a good sleep on it.

    MOC: Dain II Ironfoot

    The only word that can properly describe this is glorious. Dain is a badass, and you have captured every angle of his badassery (that's totally a word) with this build. Love the war pig! Relevant:

    The Carmen

    I see you've moved on from warships to wrecked ships Sebeus! Haha. This is unbelievable. The size and detail you've included is awesome. I love how you cracked the hull in two, it looks completely natural. I also like how you've added all the sea creatures swimming about, makes it look like a real undersea scene. Great work!
