    REVIEW: 80102 Dragon Dance

    Great informative review, thanks @WhiteFang! I'm not a big fan of all those sausages used on the dragon. It seems the designers couldn't keep their mind off food when working on the model.
  2. Back in May at the Eurobricks Event 2018 in Billund, I had the pleasure of hosting a Galidor Building Workshop with many of the talented members of the forum! After a brief introduction to the history of the theme and the workings of the Organic Character Building System, we dove straight into building. 50+ creations were glinched in the single evening (all built simultaneously!), which is perhaps too much to share in one topic! This collage will take you to a gallery on Flickr where they're all individually documented and described for your viewing pleasure! Eurobricks Glinching Workshop Album

    [Galidor Category B] Dreejal Vin

    I'm blown away by the size and amount of detail and references in this model. I particularly love the tasteful BIONICLE part integration and brick-built lettering. If the rules hadn't disallowed it, I'm sure you could've blended in Galidor parts excellently in this model, but you captured the show perfected in so many ways regardless! This is a model I never thought I'd see, and I'm deeply honoured that you made it! Good luck in the contest!

    Those eyes are truly terrifying, you really captured the source material! Medium blue is a hard colour to work with, I'm really impressed with the shaping you were able to do on this bust!

    [Galidor Category A] Under the Sea

    It's a bit hard to find the seahorse's eye, but once you do it looks amazing! I love the creative use of perspective for to help sell the sea-mines and sea-weed scenery. Good luck in the competition!

    [Galidor Category A] Grundurf

    The shaping with all the fur parts is sublime, excellent work!
  7. This part is definitely inspired by BIONICLE, but it's linked in a different way! After BIONICLE concluded, several of the designers that worked on the theme were moved over to Ninjago and began looking at the 2018 lineup while the other Ninjago designers (myself included) were still finishing up with the Ninjago Movie sets (hence the earlier 2016 trademark). Ninjago often uses Constraction parts (blades especially!) in their sets because they allow for sturdy and lightweight shapes - with the expertise from the BIONICLE designers, it was only fitting that we'd make a Constraction element specifically for Ninjago!

    Eurobricks Event 2018 - Sign-up topic

    A local event, that sounds exciting! Like Rolli, I will sort out my own accommodation, and I might not be able to join for the whole time. Definitely the weekend!
  9. 3 studs apart. (So would fit onto a 1x4 beam)

    MOC: Cowboy

    It's great to see it finished! I love all the character details that you've put in. The baggy pants and shape coming from the shells is really ace. I don't know if there's space, but it would have been great if you could fit some extra pieces to give more expression to the eyes. If halfpins fit in backwards, you could rotate them to give him angry eyes. At any rate, he's still adorable with his hollow eyed charm. : D The two square recessions on old socket joints can fit studs - it's usually not too useful except for awesome cases like this.

    [MOC] Circuit Breaker

    It's been a while since I've posted MOCs here, but I thought I should get into the habit of doing it again. Here's my most recent MOC, a starfighter built for round 5 of the Starfighter Telephone Game on Flickr. After receiving a starfighter from another builder, the aim of the game is to interpret/evolve it into your own design, which you then pass onto the next builder in the team. (Click for a hi-res version) Circuit Breaker is an evolution of Ryan H's Phasor (pictured on the left). Advanced alien technology puts delicate mechanics on the outside. While this provides acute sub-wave sensitivity, Circuit Breaker scout ships must rely on their quick maneuverability provided by retractable retro-thrusters, in order to survive forays in hostile space. Circuit Breaker ships are equipped laser saw fangs instead of any ranged weapons or countermeasures. Also wing functions!

    Ninjago 2015

    The helmet very slightly gets in the way - the hairpiece attaches and looks good, but it isn't fitting 100% properly.

    The Exoforce references in Rebooted would have been made by Adrian Florea, so it's possible that Jay's description is a reference as well.

    Bionicle 2015 Discussion

    The CCBS shells (and the new masks) are made from PC (Polycarbonate), which is harder and able to be produced in transparent colours, unlike ABS. It has a sharper "twang" when you drop PC parts. Compared to the old masks (which used even softer plastics), these masks have visually sharper/clearer edges and feel like they should be more durable to scratches/weathering.
