  1. The Sea Pincer is a new Aquasharks sub, based on the design of the Stingray Sea Creeper or Crab. With two manipulator arms it is designed to quickly grab the energy crystals or sabotage the Aquanauts subs and under water bases. With extra stabilizer fins on the bottom of the craft and propellers that have an 180 degrees turn, it can also quickly back off and turn around for improved maneuverability. -- I finally obtained the Stingray set 6140/6109 today, which I have totally missed in my childhood apparently. And after assembling it for the first time, I wondered what it would look like in Aquasharks colors. So here is my quick ~1.5 hour build, I also added a small base and the Shark Scout mk2 that I had already made.

    [MOC] Aquasharks - Sea Pincer

    Thanks. @TeriXeri yeah you have to be careful especially the grey space ones you have to careful with. @tomfow I also have some ideas for a Aquanauts MOC.
  3. A new small compact car made by the Murata Electronics corporation. With an all new heads-up display. For sale in district 7, for only 20000 credits. Murata - C1E by Ids de Jong, on Flickr For the building in the back see this topic: [MOC] District-7 - Ramen corner - LEGO Sci-Fi - Eurobricks Forums
  4. Maybe, but they could have used the old/original figures with those sets in the video instead of those updated figures.
  5. That is a good bet, those look like updated figures.
  6. Marko is just about to try and return to the river to catch some more fish, while Sascha is drying the previous catch. A small furry friend is looking with anticipation waiting for Sascha to leave. -- Will probably be part of a larger layout together with https://flic.kr/p/2mMtevr -- It started out as a tryout to use a post-and-beam technique and evolved to this house. The stone base of the house is 10x10, with some jumper magic, the bottom of the house is 9x9, before expanding to the front to 10x9 studs for the floors above and the roof.

  7. Maybe, but I think yellow would have worked better as a nod to the old shields. And blue would also be my preferred color. Hopefully they will introduce this Torso to the online BAM when the make that service available again.
  8. @Follows Closely I agree that it would be perfect then. Maybe that is possible but would require a more difficult construction, for example jumper plates do not exist in dark brown. The top beam would also have to be a plate higher to accompany the offset stud of the modified brick with stud on its side and the gap would have to be filled somehow, requiring some more brackets/tiles.
  9. @hoppa Thanks. See also the progress of the build: Ids on Twitter: "Trying out some timber framing (post-and-beam) with Lego. #LEGO #レゴ https://t.co/utpcgN0uPo" / Twitter And this picture: The top and bottom are cheese slopes, pushed in between those other cheese slopes. @Feuer Zug Thanks.
  10. The Meguro River (目黒川, Meguro-gawa) is a river which flows through Tokyo and is a popular spot for cherry blossom viewing in the spring. March 27 was the Cherry blossom day (桜の日, Sakura no Hi) so a perfect day for a build featuring the Cherry blossoms. Meguro-gawa by Ids, on Flickr Thanks for looking.

    [MOC] Fuchikoma and Section 9 members

    For Marchikoma I build this Fuchikoma which even fits a fig quite nicely, see also https://ghostintheshell.fandom.com/wiki/Fuchikoma for more information about the original. Fuchikoma - フチコマ by Ids, on Flickr When I had build this Fuchikoma based on the Ghost in the Shell manga, I also had to come up with some figs based on section 9, https://ghostintheshell.fandom.com/wiki/Public_Security_Section_9_(organization) These are my (purist) take on the members of section 9, from left to right: Saito - Tactical Sniper Motoko Kusanagi - Major/Field Commander Togusa - Investigator/2nd Field Commander Daisuke Aramaki - Lieutenant Colonel/Section Chief Batou - Lead Investigator Boma - Spotter, Investigator, and bomb specialist Pazu - Investigator Ishikawa - Covert Intelligence and Technology Executive Officer and a Fuchikoma who does not want to miss the photo session.

    [MOC] District-7 - Ramen corner

    The district-7 Ramen corner is famous for it's delicious noodles, because there are only a few seats available, it's always busy especially during lunch hour.

    [MOC] Febrovery 2022 a story of rovers

    Thanks for looking, I also really like the combination of the dome taxi, always fun to use some old pieces.
  16. Bart Seeker: guys, I said cleanup, not play around. The event is almost starting, stop playing with those rovers of last year. Duncan, I don't think they are listening, Bart. MAGS: what am I doing here? Jim: look, he's chasing Benny and that other guy. Viva: good luck Mello. Come join, Febrovery '22 (https://flic.kr/g/hgEjw).

  17. For a long time I wanted to build some Rock Raider MOCs. I loved playing the game and with the sets when it was new and remember playing a lot with it and building things from the game (with the wrong colors). Sadly I never had the big sets but I did have the the Loader-Dozer and a couple of small sets so I did have most minifigs and the rock monster except the Chief. So I recently started putting some figs together and started updating them, and also added some extra characters. Rock Raiders 2.0+ by Ids, on Flickr From left to right: - Raiden (a new miner to expand the team) - Nari (a rookie engineer, helps Sparks with his tasks) - Wiz (a Zotaxian expert in energy crystals and Voltstones) - Sparks (an expert on all things mechanical and electrical) - Jet (the most courageous and strong-willed of all the Rock Raiders, she is a very skilled pilot) - Chief (the oldest, wisest and most experienced Rock Raider) - Docs (the head Geologist and Commander) - Bandit (the greatest sailor) - Axle (one of the best drivers of the team) - Rocky (a robot) - Krenxx (a demolition expert) When building the figs, I realized I had to also build some vehicle for them, for FebRovery (see also this topic: [MOC] Febrovery 2022 a story of rovers - LEGO Sci-Fi - Eurobricks Forums) I made one: FebRovery 2022 - 25 by Ids, on Flickr Heavy Tunnelator by Ids, on Flickr The search for energy crystals continues, the Heavy Tunnelator is a new Rock Raiders vehicle, the drill can be pushed out of the vehicle to drill from a safe distance. An experimental function of the vehicle is that the drill can be remotely controlled from inside the cabin, and can continue to drill without being attached to the base. And today I also finished some small ones: Rock Raider scouts by Ids, on Flickr Two small Rock Raider vehicles. Made an updated Hover Scout and a small scout rovers. Thanks for looking and let me know what you think, I will probably work on some more vehicle when I have an idea.
  18. Elwyn and Raelyn are on the road again, walking through the forest. All their belongings are carried by their horse. The forest creatures are observing them carefully especially the Woodlings, who follow them secretly inside the Whispering Woods. -- Elwyn the last Ash wood elf travels together with Raelyn. a half elf who had rescued him from the destruction of his land. Raelyn took care of his wounds and if she didn't stop Elwyn from immediately returning to the city, he would have surely died. The great elven city of Nyen Aerthoru was attacked by the Aelshide who summoned demons and corrupted the animals and beasts of the land. -- Elwyn is looking for the elves of the Whispering Woods, to find a way to restore his land and the corrupted city.

    @AmperZand Thank you and yours looks also nice. I'm still thinking about building a few other Woodlings and making some sort of forest hideout/base for them.
