  2. Speed Champions inspired F1 cars

    I've been making some additional 2016 season F1 cars to sit alongside the Ferrari F1 Speed Champions set (75879), first up is one of my favourite teams (despite their poor form in partnership with Honda), McLaren. This is my interpretation of their 2016 MP4-31 #14 driven by Fernando Alonso. The build was straightforward as it follows the standard Speed Champions F1 car build closely with just a couple of tweaks to nose and wing. The stickers were the biggest challenge as it's not possible to put all the logos in exactly the right place and scale. I didn't want any stickers to span more than one brick which limited things still further but I'm happy with the end result. Let me know what you think!
  3. Current Batch is Batch 18!! Hello! 2016 has come and gone, and brought a lot of LEGO Star Wars minifigures with it. But what is the best LEGO Star Wars minifigure from 2016? Vote in the poll above, after a while, maybe a couple of days, I will create a new topic that has another set of minifigures! Credit to @Itaria No Shintaku for creating a similar game for CMFs and inspiring this topic. Here is the first batch! Today we have Rebels A-wing Pilot Admiral Ackbar Ahsoka Tano Baze Malbus Bespin Guard Bistan Vote away! Do comment with who you voted for and why EDIT: For some reason, I have problems voting on my own polls. My pick is Baze Malbus, though Ahsoka is a close runner-up. Let me know if you can vote on my polls or if my problem applies to everyone too. EDIT 2: I will remove the poll. Leave your pick in a comment below. Thanks!!
  4. Hi As I am a visual person I put together this image. Prices are in euros and images are not at scale. If you spot any error just say it, please At a first glance, I am frankly surprised to see so little "old" yelow, red and blue around. The main motivation was the people complaining in the 2017 thread about a dissapointing year for Technic and I wanted to see the full picture. I had the feeling that there were less sets at the mid-range price, but it is not the case. I think that people just dislike each of this year's sets over 80 € because looking twice, the overall offer looks good. A point I dislike is that we are getting more sets in the expensive side than before
  5. Hello everyone! Just sharing my thoughts on the Rogue One sets from 2016. Just a note to say I don't have any of the Rogue One sets from 2016 at the time of writing. 75152: Imperial Assault Hovertank Price in my region: $69.99 This set looks pretty good to me. The spring-loaded shooters are really well integrated into the build. Chirrut Imwe, currently exclusive to this set, is a great figure to have. The Hovertank Pilots are good too, I like the sand highlights. Unfortunately, the ship does seem a too low down, plus it lacks one crate. Aside from the crate, it just looks like a flat grey build. 75153 AT-ST Price in my region: $99.99 Sorry, the images are kinda blurry. I like this set too. It's likely the best version of the AT-ST to date, albeit slightly a little too tall. Well-integrated spring-loaded shooters seem to quickly become a staple in 2016's Rogue One sets. I love that Baze Malbus figure! It's really detailed, the only complain I have is his hair is too short, but it was arguably limited by his backpack. The only main complaint I have about the set is that it's a little too small for $99.99. 3 bags only? Even the Hovertank has 4. 75154 TIE Striker Price in my region: $129.99 I take back what I said about "Well-integrated spring-loaded shooters." They really seem stuck on on this one. However, I really like the rest of the ship. The folding wing play feature looks smooth and tight, and the cockpit seems better than the one in the First Order TIE Fighter. I feel like the back is a bit of a waste of space, as they should have allowed space for another minifigure. On the other hand, the round shape of the TIE Striker is really well captured. I love it! 75155 U-wing Price in my region: $149.99 This image -------^ is of Jyn with her poncho, the next one is without the poncho. The minifigures in this set are good. You get two named main characters in currently exclusive garb. Also, you get a named minor character (albeit not named on the box). Bistan looks good too, plus the U-wing's pilot. It is noteworthy, however, that Jyn and Cassian are dressed wrongly, as both are wearing thick woolly clothes that they wore on Eadu, while the presence of the Corporal Eskro Casrich and Bistan indicate this is meant to be from the Battle of Scarif. Also, Jyn and Cassian did not arrive on Scarif in a U-wing, much less the one with Bistan. But I digress. The build looks marvellous. We have more well-integrated spring-loaded shooters, activated using blue pieces on the front. I like it when the missiles are near cannons (to simulate cannons firing) and that is true of this set. I'm not too sure what I feel about the cockpit-opening mechanism, but without it it may be hard to open the cockpit, which unfortunately does not seat two. The storage at the back does feel kinda tacked on, but the troop carrier section looks good, and even has guns which fold out. However, the guns which fold out seem inaccurate to me, as Bistan fired the guns in a U-wing through a window, not by opening a door and folding a gun out. This, though, seems like a worthy compromise in my opinion, as a troop disembarkation with covering fire play feature works. I really love this set! 75156 Krennic's Imperial Shuttle Price in my region: $169.99 Hooray for sleek black ships! I love shiny black Star Wars stuff (my love for Darth Vader is not without reason) and Krennic's Shuttle looks really good. Currently, all the minifigures are exclusive, and they are Director Orson Krennic, Bodhi Rook, Pao, K-2SO, and two Death Troopers. The spring-loaded shooters are not completely integrated, but are hidden under the wings and look okay. Krennic's seat in the cockpit does make his cape a little squashed and thus make him look slightly uncomfortable. There are also four seats in the shuttle, two of which can be used by the Death Troopers. The panels fold open, but the interior is ugly with a lot of Technic pieces. However, when folded up, the shuttle looks great, especially with the wings in flight mode. I absolutely adore this set! To me, the higher the prices, the better the sets in the wave are. However, all of the sets are good to a certain extent for their price tags! Now, it's time for me to go buy these :) Let me know your thoughts about the sets in replies!
  6. There were many great MOCs during 2016. As is becoming a habit, and to celebrate some of Thirdwigg's favorite MOCs of the year, I present The Top 16 of 2016. Find out who won the coveted 2016 Thirdwiggy award. Enjoy, and feel free to let me know about your vehement objections to the list. Sorry for all the great ones I left out. Let me know what should have been included. Many thanks to Eurobricks for so many great designs and conversations over the year. I look forward to 2017.
  7. Lego technic Chaos supercar! A supercar with several functions like reverse ackermann steering, suspension, opening doors, a gearbox, and a working steering wheel! Watch the video for more details: The pictures are under the videos. Thank you and happy new year to all! BrickbyBrick, Dec. 26 2016
  8. The Cottage In Autumn

    An Autumn version of one of my previous creations. I really should be building for Brickvention MOC but I really wanted to use my new LUGbulk parts! Now that Summer has drawn to a close, one of the oldest retirees of the Avalonian military has further settled down into his quiet retirement home on the coast of the southern part of Avalonia.
  9. Lego Technic DRAGSTER!

    New MOC! LEGO Technic DRAGSTER! It's pretty fast and powerful. Watch the video for more details. Thank you! More soon!
  10. It's been a busy 2016 for me, but I managed to get a supercar completed.. It might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I think that it is my best work that I've done so far.. It is based around the sequential 4 speed AWD chassis that I posted last month which has been redesigned for this new model.. I tried to come up with some new uses for the new panels from the 42056 Porsche.. Everything seems to work pretty flawlessly.. Free instructions at ReBrickable.
  11. Recently i made some expansions on my Modular Square. Within a few months, i have to fit in the Lego 10255 Assembly Square as well, but i'll find a way! I used 20 modular sets to create this square. For the square itself, i used over 16.000 parts for tiling, trees and benches! Enjoy my HD YouTube video, that i made last week and get inspired!:
  12. Desert Travellers

    As they get nearer and nearer to the Arkbri river, two travellers, weary from there exhausting trek across the Oil Road, begin to see trees, and more signs of life sprouting up out of the barren desert. Overall, pretty pleased with how this sand technique turned out, pleased enough to order some more of the parts for my next large MOC!
  13. Built for SHIPtember 2016. Length: 106 Studs Bio: The Firebrand class of cruisers and shuttles have long been used for search and rescue operations in all manner of atmospheres, scientific research and testing, medical transport and general transport of passengers both on planet and for interstellar trips.

  15. With the recent concert tour of "A Head Full of Dreams", Coldplay's popularity has risen drastically, therefore why not create a project of a popular group. The set is a concert stage, so the builders will be able to use it for their own customs and other play features. This set will include 4 exclusive minifigures of the group: Chris Martin Jonny Buckland Guy Berryman Will Champion Additional features include: Upright Piano Electronic Keyboard Drum set 2 Guitars Amplifiers 4 Beat boxes (green, red, blue, black) microphone I invite you all to be a part of this project, support and make something incredible become true.
  16. Advent Calendar City 2016

    Hi Does someone know the 'official' names for the minifigures in the Lego City Advent Calendar 2016?
  17. Umarak the Destroyer Mods

    Umarak the Destroyer is an ok set but he wasn't bulky enough for my liking. So I've made a few changes to him. They are as followed 1. Completely redesigned the torso so its much bulkier 2. Bulked up legs slightly 3. Removed claw gimmick so he can have poseable wrists. 4. Changed up the horns on the mask. I didn't like how Umarak's horns went away when he put on the Mask of Control so I combined them with the Mask of Control's horns. Umarak's horns are now gold. 5. Moved the jaw up so its not hanging down so far. With that out of the way here are pictures. View from all sides http://www.brickshel...destroyer_1.jpg http://www.brickshel...destroyer_2.jpg http://www.brickshel...destroyer_3.jpg Comparison with my Umarak the Hunter mod. (I've made some more changes to Umarak the Hunter since the topic I posted about him) http://www.brickshel...destroyer_5.jpg Version with the original horns the set had in case someone wanted to see him like that http://www.brickshel...destroyer_6.jpg Lastly two poses. One of him screaming from his transformation. The other holding the trans orange and gunmetal version of his mask http://www.brickshel...destroyer_4.jpg http://www.brickshel...destroyer_7.jpg Comments and criticism appreciated.
  18. 2016 UCS Reaction

    2016 has been a very successful year for LEGO Star Wars. There so far have been 37 Star Wars sets released (including the 9 sets to be released September 30th). They also made a new LEGO Star Wars TV show, The Freemaker Adventures which just aired its final episode. But 2016's UCS sets have sparked loads and loads of controversy, when the images and details of 75098 UCS Assault on Hoth it sparked outrage as many people though it costed way too much, didn't deserve the UCS title, and was a lazy attempt with so much incompleteness, and other complaints. The other UCS set is the 75159 UCS Death Star, it also has been criticized as a lazy attempt and a cash grab by LEGO. ^ 75098 UCS Assault on Hoth ^ 75159 UCS Death Star Set Reactions: Now I totally see everyone's point on 75098 and I think it was a very poor effort by TLG, but I differ from the majority on my opinion of 75159. I believe that 75159 is great, I have heard how upset people were when 10188 was discontinued, but it was very old and needed an update. Then when we got the update everyone is so outraged and upset with TLG for not changing it much. I see that people wanted something new, but 10188 was selling well for the 7.5 years it was being produced so why change it, everyone loved the set. Now I also see why people are upset about the price hike, but two factors called for it, first is that inflation sucks and accounts for roughly $50 of the increase, and second back in 2008 there was only LucasFilm with the rights to Star Wars, but now LEGO needs both Disney and LucasFilm licencing which isn't cheap, so it sucks but we know that this had to be done to continue to make profit. Also this might be slightly biased because I got to the LEGO and Star Wars buffet late and by the time I bought my first Star Wars set in late 2015 I was not yet big enough a fan to consider buying 10188, so I want 75159 badly an that is also my final reason for why there was nothing wrong with what TLG did with 75159, because there were so many more who wanted and couldn't get the original and we now have a second chance to get it. So leave your reactions to these two sets in the comments and May the Bricks be With You, Always.
  19. Cottage Life

    A quick foray back into GOH before I start on my SHIPtember build. Somewhere on the Avalonian coast, an old soldier of the Avalonian military is enjoying his retirement. I would like to claim the UOP credits for landscape design, trees 3/3, and for Hydrology, Flowing Water.
  20. As you may or may not know, it has been announced that Lego will be releasing some player skin minifigures in 2 packs of four in September. Pictures have been released. This should sum it up. What do you think? Possibility of any more after these?
  21. Here are a few examples of what you can do with the Volvo EW160E (when it's in stores within the next few weeks!) A trailer: Forklift: Broader/Twin Tyres (preferably those from 8235 Front End Loader for example!) Grappling Claw Small Bucket Scoop Anything else you could imagine? Regards, Ryan J Smith.
  22. I'm guessing there will be some other EB folks at BFVA this year. My brother (LittleJohn) and I will be there, mainly in the castle section. So is anyone else coming? We'd love to meet some EB members in person
  23. Here is my 2016 layout, with most of the items already built, but some still remain to be purchased. Here is a complete list of what's on my tables, not including trains or automobiles because they can be rotated on or off the layout very easily. All of this sits on three very carefully arranged 30 inch by 72 inch tables. Now for the reality check: This is the current state of my trains and town layout. I don't have any other space for things on the table, as below the tables and in the closet is full of Lego bins, either color sorted in slide-out drawers, former model chunks in bins, or put together in customized paper boxes. Here we see the entire layout and compared to the nice chart I posted earlier, it's bit of a mess. The water models area has a police station and Cloud Cuckoo Land in it, and the left hand town area next to the station has my clock radio and assorted stuff for models not yet built. The rail yard is mostly put together, with my streamlined 4-8-2 steamer and diesel PA / PB units getting ready for their day of work. The steam loco is arriving at the coaling / water towers to refuel while the ALCO units are going to be switched onto the mainline to pull it's assigned express train. (The train is not on the table to save space and keep it from getting too dusty.) The town is mostly there, with the streetcars rounding the curves onto and off the main street. The sections only needs two 90 degree (X) crossings to be finished. Now you may be thinking it's really bad, but it is a lot better than it was, and still has a ways to go. It's all about baby steps toward the larger goal of having my dream layout, something I have always wanted since seeing my Dad's layout when I was 5 or 6. For those wondering, here's my ideal layout's items.... most of them I have already, but a half-dozen or so I don't own yet. This layout contains the following track sections: 3 - Right switches 3 - Left switches 62 - Straight segments 46 - Curved segments 2 - 90 degree rail crossing (still needed) 1 - Double rail crossover This layout contains the following train facilities: - Truss bridge - Ironwood Train station -Trolley Stop (still needed) - Water and coal refueling stations - Double stall train shed This layout contains the town buildings: - Sinister Victorian Mansion - Stone Bank - Western Saloon - Thunder's office - Town Hall (still needed) - Military Surplus store - Tudor style House - Model Rocket store - Tavern - Train club meeting house - Railway Headquarters (still needed) This layout contains the following miscellaneous other items: - Tramp steam ship - Lighthouse - Car ferry - Leisure vessel (still needed) - Rural Cabin Comments and feedback would be really appreciated!
  24. Recently discovered in an almost forgotten corner of Petraea university, this painting by the yet unknown artist 'BC'. See Flickr (link in signature) for images without frame and background. I would like to claim the UoP credits for: Trees (1/3), Studs up rocks and cliffs.
  25. Pic 2 Pic 3 Pic 4 Pic 5 Pic 6 Album A Lego chess set based on the Nexo Knights theme. Altogether, including parts that aren't available on LDD (8 Scurrier figs and the helmets for the 2 Ash Attackers), this model would add up to 1022 pieces. The base features storage space for the chess pieces themselves, and two modular sections visually based on the good and evil factions in the theme. The board itself is also modular and separates into four 16x16 sections. The two halves of the board can be separated and stacked on top of one another for storage. The chess pieces themselves all have simple yet uniform bases that allow for easy color-coded identification. The "good" Nexo Knight faction features King Halbert (King), Queen Halbert (Queen), two Royal Soldiers (Bishops), two hover horses (Knights), two Nexo Shields (Rooks), and eight King's Squirebots (Pawns). The "evil" Lava Monster faction features Jestro and the Book of Monsters (King), Lavaria (Queen), two Ash Attackers (Bishops), two evil hover horses (Knights), two Shields of Absorption (Rooks) and eight Scurriers (Pawns). I would love to build this physically and/or submit it to Lego Ideas, but am hesitant due to how obvious the idea is. Lego has released many chess sets in the past, most of them based on Castle themes, so chances are Lego is already considering releasing a chess set for the Nexo Knights theme. I would not want to buy all the necessary figs and parts on Bricklink only for Lego to release a similar set on their own!
