    [MOC] District-7 - Ramen corner

    @ExeSandbox Thanks, the style is somewhat futuristic, inspired by cyberpunk work, Hong Kong and of course Japan. The Japanese characters work really well like this.

    @imvanya, no problem, I'm sure to update the figs if I find better parts to use. It's a good idea to share ideas.

    Thanks @imvanya, I agree that Batou could use some work. I am also not entirely sure about Pazu. For Batou that suggested head is nice but I would like to keep them yellow for now. I made them without resorting to buying extra parts so made them of the ones I had available. Although I could have used Zane's hair and maybe another torso. I also really like Saito, that head fits perfectly and for Ishikawa that hair piece has an additional bonus. I can attach a visor for the computer screen he uses, when attaching the silver ice planet visor it looks like an attached screen.

    [MOC] Febrovery 2022 a story of rovers

    I forgot to post one, but here are the last 2: FebRovery 2022 - 27 The Crater Cruiser. When the gravity is too high for your 'Bouncer' (see below), you can now also buy our improved cruiser. Cruising over the craters like no one. Ps. don't forget to activate the special button to improve the ground clearance for the cabin... FebRovery 2022 - 27 by Ids, on Flickr FebRovery 2022 - 28 The Spyrius Robo-Sentinel. Guarding all stolen tech by Spyrius. Equipped with one mechanical arm (with attached laser) and a special magnet arm, to grab any M-tron or Ice Planet tech. Controlled from within, the driver has a great view in front of it, but can also use the eyes of the Robo-Sentinel. The Robo-Sentinel also has an autonomous guard mode to spot any intruders within sensor range. -- For this Spyrius build, I changed the trans-neon green with orange, and red for the visors of the figs, I also added dark red as a new accent color. FebRovery 2022 - 28 by Ids, on Flickr Robo-Sentinel by Ids, on Flickr @Feuer ZugThanks, I'm very happy with how much it resembles the original.

    FebRovery 2022 - 26 Jim: Look at that one, that red rover. Dave: Apparently its a Gyrojet Sidewinder. Jim: How stable is that one, with only three wheels. Dave: When the wheel is spinning, it is very stable. -- When I saw this toy from my dad, I knew I had to create a Lego version of it and what better time than for FebRovery, I did add a spoiler on the back for stability (I mean looks). And it rolls very well, better that the 1970s toy, because I used 3 actual wheels instead of 1 and 2 fake wheels on the 1970s toy. The original toy works by pulling a rip cord next to the wheel to make it spin, I haven't added that to my version.

    FebRovery 2022 - 25 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. -- Inspired by "The Mole" from Thunderbirds.

    FebRovery 2022 - 24 The Mobile Communication Rover, or MCR is used to communicate with remote expedition teams on Hibernia, multiple MCRs can cover a very large area to establish a fast, direct communication network without the need to rely on any base, outpost or radio mast/communication tower. Equipped with sensors, antennas, radars and radio equipment it can also be used to detect any vehicle near the rover to assist search and rescue teams when needed and broadcast emergency message over a long range. The secondary function is to monitor the weather and alarm nearby people of approaching storms. -- My first Hibernia MOC, I somewhat based it on radio ships, except with tracks for land/ice.

    FebRovery 2022 - 22 Bart: What is this, I'm gone for a few days and almost nobody takes their job serious anymore. You know we need at least 6 more days, until the month is over. Duncan: When the boss is gone... Bart: There is no time to relax yet. Viva: They are training. Bart: How is this training? Viva: Well, Mello is defending the earth. Bart: He plays space defender! Viva: It's good for his reaction when piloting a space ship. Bart: Well and that new recruit in front then? He's just playing with a game controller. Duncan: That's a special trainings rover, to control remote rovers, we call it the 'Game Chair Rover' or GCR for short. Viva: How does that work? Duncan: Normally a remote rover can be controlled with the remote, I added a chair to follow the rover, so that you would never be outside the operating range of it. Viva: Oh, interesting, it looks fun. -- Just a small rover for today, with a fun scene attached. FebRovery 2022 - 22 by Ids, on Flickr

    FebRovery 2022 - 19 On one of ice asteroids in the asteroid belts of the Krysto system, a small team of explorers of the Enceladus is searching for energy crystal to further their research. This is also the first real-life test of the newly developed "Crystallization Locater", beneath the cockpit are special sensors to detect the crystals, together with the front sensors, it can detect energy crystals within a range of around 2500 meters. The crew then proceeds to retrieve or excavate the crystals and store them in the storage containers in the back of the vehicle. -- I really like how the cockpit came together and the weird wheel/skis configuration, just like a snow scooter.

    FebRovery 2022 - 18 A small Kalon transportation rover. The Kalons use these to transport goods quickly around the base and landing places, they can be used inside and outside the domed cities. A special mechanism allows the main engine to be mounted inside the drive wheel, the rest of the wheels are only added for some support/stability. About Kalons, don't feed them any crabs from Kandor-III, unless you don't mind them tearing the place down. It is best to approach them with caution. FebRovery 2022 - 18 by Ids, on Flickr

    [WIP] Lego monorails. [Custom Rail Systems (CRS)]

    Ok, I'll check that one out. I know you could use a lot of motors, but preferable one which can be controlled by a remote or something.

    FebRovery 2022 - 16 After selling almost all the crabs of Kandor-III (see: Crab fishing on Kandor-III) for profit, the Chromians, bought a new rover. The Murasaki-II is a special vehicle made by SynTron Heavy Industries based on Earth (who also makes civilian vehicles since 2146). The six wheeled drive provides excellent traction on any surface, and the special tires used, make it also very light. With the front to back cockpit design, you get a clear view of the surroundings and the sky (especially when you have eyestalks, body modifications are discouraged by the manufacturer though). The cockpit is made from a special transparent solar panel, to make sure your rover is never without power. This custom version of the rover features extra chrome details, specially made for the Chromians. The normal version is for sale this summer, starting prices from 98.765.432,10 credits (no Tax included), for sale at your nearest dealer. Ps. Dropship delivery will cost extra.

    [WIP] Lego monorails. [Custom Rail Systems (CRS)]

    Interesting thread, always wanted to build some modern monorail, especially when seeing the models of Masao Hidaka. But now I have a couple of questions, what motors, battery box would I need? I don't really know the motors LEGO uses, and have used in the past and how capable they are, I would like to builds something that can climb at least (as well as just driving around). I do have some very old 12V and 9V (train) motors and an RC train with remote (set 60052), which I also saw a design for. But the newer ones are controlled with bluetooth I see, and maybe motors with more torque (which you would neet to climb a slope). So any advice you could give me.

    FebRovery 2022 - 15 Jim: The police officer said to be on the lookout for suspicious rovers right. Dave: Yes, she did. Jim: That one looks rather suspicious. The capsule rover is a special high pressure rover, which can even be used in the deep sea, which is needed to reach the city of An-Ra, at the bottom of lake Stella-Maris. -- Well this cockpit gave me some trouble photographing it, the reflections were not normal, especially as I wanted to show the fig inside...
