  1. Hello everyone, Yesterday I made this animation for a Catwoman figure I designed. You can now preorder instructions or a model kit at Custom Toy Brick Models. If you press like on this video and subscribe to the YouTube channel, it would help out a lot. Thanks!
  2. For the second installment of this series, the Time-Out Cafe from the episode Robin's Reckoning Part 2, I made a 64x speed video of the design process:
  3. Thanks MrWayne! Here are three more renders I made for this model. Click through to flickr for the reference images linked in the photo descriptions. Batman TAS: Multigon International Batman TAS: Multigon International Batman TAS: Multigon International

    [MOC] Wayne Manor + Batcave

    Nice work getting the curved shape of the crest. I think the middle part of the mansion's facade would look better without the white parts staggered between the gray. Looking forward to seeing more.
  5. Here is the first installment, the office of the Multigon International CEO as it appeared in the first episode, The Cat and the Claw (Part 1). Batman TAS: Multigon International Here's a still from the episode:
  6. I'm starting this thread to post renders and timelapses of the Batman TAS models I'll be building on Twitch. Here's a teaser showing some scenes I plan to build and here's a link to the stream: twitch.tv/statemachine/
  7. I've been designing a minifig-scale model of The Briarcliff Lodge, a large Tudor Revival structure in Briarcliff Manor, New York which was built as a hotel in 1902 and burned down in 2003. Since I'm using the digital Lego design software Stud.io, I will stream further progress I make on this model at twitch.tv/statemachine.

    LEGO Masters US Show

    Thank you for sharing this behind-the-scenes account. I figured I'd check EB for a topic on the show and to see if anyone knows if some of the competitors post mocs online. Since you have insider info, can you also say whether the teams had any assistance (for example with motorization) or if there was anything else notably not made apparent to us viewers?
  9. Thank you, Gary. Always nice to receive feedback from you!
  10. Thanks! That's right, they're built with sun-dried mud bricks covered in earthen plaster. The palm boughs sticking out the structure provide structural support as well as scaffolding mounts for annual resurfacing of the plaster. And yeah, one of motivations to build this was that I had never seen any Lego models pertaining to precolonial sub-Saharan Africa.
  11. Thanks, folks. That head tie, or kufi, on the lone woman is an old technique. I linked a preceding example of it in a comment on this photo's flickr page.
  12. When Mansa Musa, ruler of the Mali Empire, returned to West Africa from his pilgrimage to Mecca in 1325 CE, he annexed the Tuareg-Mandinka trading city of Timbuktu and there built a grand mosque and royal palace on the banks of the River Niger. Part of the mosque still stands today, but the palace no longer exists, and no accounts of its architecture are known to modern scholarship. Thus, I have built this speculative model in the Sudano-Sahelian style of several contemporaneous Malian structures, such as the Great Mosque of Djenné. The Lost Palace at Timbuktu by Nathan, on Flickr In the courtyard, Mansa Musa holds an audience with his subjects. This scene, attested by the medieval Arab historian Shihāb al-‘Umarī (c. 1300 – 1349 CE), features a wide ebony throne flanked by elephant tusks mounted on a dais in front of which stand in two rows the lesser kings of Mali and behind which are assembled enslaved Turks and other mamalik brought from Cairo. One slave holds a silk sunshade topped by a golden falcon, while others play West African instruments including a goblet drum called the djembe and a double-headed drum called the dunun. The photo I've used for the background was uploaded by Ralf Steinberger under the Creative Commons Attribution 2.0 Generic license.
  13. That's a pity, but thanks for informing me! That combo looks great. I'll try to get my hands on those pieces eventually. Thanks again!
  14. Thank you so much for these nice photos! Very helpful. I hope someone who has the Medusa hair will yet find this thread!
  15. I don't own these hair and headgear parts, and I'd like to know how well they fit together with these beard parts. First is the Medusa hair https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?id=118155#T=P and the medium short beard https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=93223&name=Minifig, Beard, Medium Short&category=[Minifig, Body Wear]#T=P Second is the Flying Warrior helmet https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=24088&idColor=115#T=P&C=115 and the Gandalf beard https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=10052&name=Minifig, Beard, Rounded End&category=[Minifig, Body Wear]#T=C (or if that doesn't work at all, the Sensei Wu beard https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=93069&name=Minifig, Beard, Fancy&category=[Minifig, Body Wear]#T=C or Vitruvius beard https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=15442&name=Minifig, Beard, Long with Knot&category=[Minifig, Body Wear]#T=C&C=1) Photographs would be appreciated, especially if the parts fit slightly less than perfectly.
