  1. The Queen celebrates her birthday on the 25th of December, many guest come to celebrate with her, even the dwarven king of Tondelheim. On this bright moonlit night, many festivities are planned, however the queen isn't very impressed by the jester. Visit the Queen by moonlight by Ids, on Flickr For a better view of the King and Queen: The King of the Hill, over there, somewhere by Ids, on Flickr Some background info, the scene is lit using 6 old 12V train lights, this gives the needed warm light for the scene. For the moonlight I used an old phone as a flashlight (nice white LED light) and for the candle on the table to the right, with the King and Queen, I used an exo-force "Fiber Optics Cable Wide 20L" which runs through the candle, table, and wall behind the figs, there it is lit using another flashlight. The stained glass is build around an old Knights Kingdom panel, which was a bit difficult to incorporate because I did not want to use the piece that is normally used. I used a bunch of animals, can you spot them all. Thanks for looking and I am always happy to hear some comments.

    [MOC] Febrovery 2022 a story of rovers

    FebRovery 2022 - 13 The Heavy Rocket Transport is used by the Federation to launch new and improved communication satellites in orbit. The crew of two can find the optimal launch site with all the sensor equipment on board and can even fine tune the rocket fuel to launch the rocket with the optimal conditions. A scout flies ahead to clear the launch site for the imminent launch of the rocket. -- Well, the weekend was here and I finally had some time to build some bigger rover for FebRovery, I'm fairly happy with the results of this Neo-Classic space rocket transport.

    [MOC] Febrovery 2022 a story of rovers

    FebRovery 2022 - 12 The light platform repair rover, or LPRR, is used to fixe all those broken lights along the main road and local landing spots. Jim asked Dave to look at it while the replace a broken light. He had never seen that before coming here. The rover is controlled by a swivel chair attached to one leg and may only be operated by robots, especially when standing on the platform during driving. Earlier versions of the rover could go up and down, but budget cuts have made its way into the planning and maintenance department. This has let to an LPRR that is fixed in height, to easily fix the lights, although it can only be reloaded back at the base. It can be operated for extended period of times, due to the robot operatives and the storage compartment of lights located below the platform. FebRovery 2022 - 12 by Ids, on Flickr

    FebRovery 2022 - 11 The mobile observation rover 'Zenith'. Equipped with many sensors, radars and antenna, to investigate and observe. The direct communication with space station Zenon is done by the rotating and extendable communication device on top of the vehicle, to have the highest data transfer possible. But it can also communicate with the various satellites in orbit when a direct line of sight is not possible. FebRovery 2022 - 11 by Ids, on Flickr @Feuer ZugThanks.

    FebRovery 2022 - 10 On their way to the Gravity Games, Jim and Dave had to wait for the M-Tron to clear the road. A large carrier had broken down and an M-Tron magnet-lift rover had to move all freight to another one. -- First time trying some updated color scheme for M-Tron. This one really needs that weight (Brick, Modified 2 x 6 x 2 Weight) at the back, otherwise it would tip over. FebRovery 2022 - 10 by Ids, on Flickr

    FebRovery 2022 - 09 Meeting tips for a busy Futuron worker: Prepare all documents for the meeting. Have the agenda ready. Invite the right people. Schedule at a time which is convenient for all participants. Don't be late. Don't forget to charge your electric rover when you have a business meeting the next day. Have a backup in case you forgot about the previous point... Have another backup in case the monorail has broken down and that was your backup. Don't miss the automated taxi when it arrives because you were distracted by your phone. Well I don't know anymore, you just have bad luck... FebRovery 2022 - 09 by Ids, on Flickr

    [MOC] Fort "de Monchy"

    Thanks all for the great and positive comments. Hopefully I have some time on the weekend to upload some additional photos, currently busy with all this [MOC] Febrovery 2022 a story of rovers - LEGO Sci-Fi - Eurobricks Forums. @Feuer Zug Well if not spanking them, he is at least trying to chase the monkeys away. @NickCartel There are already 2 cannons and I didn't want to add too much. Isn't there a piece count limit or something for a build (I really have no idea how much pieces I used)?. I have never submitted something on ideas, don't know if there are other requirements? No, I don't have an Instagram account.

    FebRovery 2022 - 07 Everything is clean again and the staff can return to base. The new digger rover was also just delivered and makes it way to base. To work alongside the Shovel Buggy and Space Dozer, this new digger has higher ground clearance and is very maneuverable, although real life practice needs to demonstrate how stable it is. One thing is for sure it's fun to drive around. FebRovery 2022 - 07 by Ids, on Flickr

    FebRovery 2022 - 06 After the mess Mello and the new recruit made yesterday with the new grappler control rover, the decontamination squad had to be called in. Together with their new Robo Cleaner Rover they started cleaning the base. The base was unusable for the rest of the day and everybody had been send to their quarters and some that were present when the accident happened had to be sent to decontamination before being send to their quarters.

    [MOC] Febrovery 2022 a story of rovers

    FebRovery 2022 - 05 A new grappler control rover has been developed by the UCT (Universal Carrier and Transportation) department of the federation. This marks the third iteration after two other trial runs: 1: https://flic.kr/p/2kyFSce 2: https://flic.kr/p/2kDUZhg Mello had been given the order to let one of the new recruits use this new rover to move some barrels. He didn't pick the right one for the job. Mello: Aaah, don't crush the barrels! When Mello was screaming, Viva arrived to the scene. Viva: Mello, how could you pick him for the job, he's got one eye, how was he supposed to see depth... And so the test ended for the day, how to clean this mysterious goo from the barrels that started spreading around the base. FebRovery 2022 - 05 by Ids, on Flickr

    FebRovery 2022 - 04 Today Jim and Dave will use their new Planetary Radar Rover Mk2, to explore some hidden sectors and rarely visited places. Equipped with a powerful radar system, the co-driver can track all movement around them and monitor the various surroundings to gather data. Duncan: Good luck and be careful on the excursion Jim. Jim: Thanks, I'll be careful. Duncan: Don't cause any trouble for Dave, like last time for Jane, she still hasn't recovered fully. Jim: I can't help it that the Kalons almost started a war about the crabs of Kandor-III (see: Crab fishing on Kandor-III). Who would know that they went mad when I offered them a bite and started attacking everybody. Ducan: Well maybe, just don't interact too much with the locals, let Dave handle it.

    FebRovery 2022 - 03 The new recruits had to take one of the automated taxis to get to the base, unfortunately the monorail had broken down recently. Just don't jam the signal to the taxi central (or use it while a solar storm is active) or you might just end up in the wrong place, "no money back". Luckily for the new recruits they all seem to have made it today. Bart and Jim were already waiting for them to arrive. FebRovery 2022 - 03 by Ids, on Flickr

Jim: So that was the package from yesterday, an "Auto Balancing Base Rover". Viva: Bart had Duncan put it together though, it was delivered as a ready-to-assemble rover from some Swedish company. FebRovery 2022 - 02 by Ids, on Flickr -- Today, just a small build which totally isn't a space Segway. @Operacion Saturno Mechtober, Marchikoma, maybe more.

TGPO: Well at least not a whole month like this other package I have to deliver. But it can't be helped, those delays, everybody should just visit the store instead of ordering everything online. Jim: How does that package fit inside? TGPO: quantum physics my boy. Jim and Bart: ? TGPO: It's bigger on the inside, the interior is a whole separate dimension containing an infinite number of corridors and storage spaces. Jim and Bart: ? TGPO: Just like a TARDIS. Bart: A what? TGPO: Time And Relative Dimension In Space. Just watch Doctor Who, I have other delivery's to make... FebRovery 2022 - 01 by Ids, on Flickr

    [MOCs] Febrovery 2021

    I realized I have never posted these MOCs here, its almost the 2022 edition of this event on flickr, but here are my rovers of last year: Febrovery 2021 by Ids, on Flickr Individual links of my rovers are over on flickr (I don't feel like posting 28 rovers here ) Link to the album: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmUoBGfU Almost all my rovers, except one (number 3 got upgraded to number 22). To be honest I hadn't planned to make a rover every day, especially as most of them were build on the day itself or a day before. And some days I didn't really have inspiration/ideas to build one. But I made it, 28 rovers. :P

    Really nice combination of a spinner and the corvette, I like the color combination. @Eyrezeroriginally an helmet piece for some sport, ice hockey figures, but this one piece is a shoulder piece of an exo-force mech.
