    REVIEW: 76112 App-Controlled Batmobile

    Thanks for the review: I think this is one I could put on my 'to get' list, especially if the rumoured 'programmability' gets up and running. I love the way that this looks a bit like the Mighty Micros, but at a giant scale: A Mighty Macro! I could see a flotilla of these customised (even modified tracked racers) chasing around a course at an event!
  2. Great overview and exploration. Thanks for sharing your experience
  3. I am late to the party: the use of Red Cross was established at the Geneva Convention to denote medical facilities /personnel/ transport as forbidden targets. This symbol was last used in LEGO sets in 1988. The LEGO interpretation of the Star of Life was first used in 1994. In between, there were some vehicles that just had the words ‘Emergency’ and ‘Ambulance’ written on.
  4. Jim, thanks for a great review. It's now on my 'to get' list. I believe issue you have with glue can be avoided if you use the ebook, rather than the paper version :)
  5. I love the way you took this. I ultimately had this ship fall through a portal and land in Elvendale...
  6. I picked up the Zeppelin, but was a little disappointed with the lack of brass, and well it felt like it should be a little more steampunky. So I got the dragon to add the pearl gold elements (I'm in australia, where the sets have been available a little bit longer) I'm hoping the image magically appears below...

  7. I get what you mean here... I have some alt designs going around in my head...limited by actual piece availability...
  8. This is the MOC I created for Brickvention 2015, in Melbourne, Australia. I have used forced perspective, with foreground figures in Miniland Scale, and the background in microscale. The biggest challenges for me were working out how to make Vitruvious' cape (until I found an old belville set in my daughters collection) and to make the sun and flower in the background rotate, and swing back and forth. This was my first technic creation since emerged from the Dark Ages. I do not apologise for the amount of color... but it turns out I used at least 8 different shades of blue!

    Ameribricks: Shocking News Here

    So that's it? It was all dream? There's no place like home gasdoc one of several non european, non american readers here!
  11. A school project my son made... A story combining the cold blood of the Silurians and the cybernetic conversion frenzy brought on by the cybermen locating a dormant colony. To say nothing about every bodies favourite Time Lord, and, of course, the Ponds... As a compromise between a tradition comic and animation (with the patience required that may not always be there...) we present a Motion Comic. Images brought into iMovie. sounds, dialogue and music added with garageband. All voices by the one kid, with different filters applied to each character's audio track Do you have 3 minutes 40 seconds to spare? I would like to apologise for the use of Character Building Figures to stand in for the main characters... Its the story that counts, Right? Please send us your feedback gasdoc oz
