    [MOC] Lobo's Spacehog

    Hy Guys!! Today, I show you my simple MOC of the Lobo’s Spacehog from the DC COMICS Univers! I took ideas from the representation of the Spacehog in the Superman Animated Series and few pictures from comics. I hope you enjoy this small MOC! Let me know what you think about, if you want more information about or if you have advice ! The Showcase video is online on YouTube and the Building Instructions are available on Rebrickable ! https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-25935/BricksFeeder/lobos-spacehog/#comments
  2. This set recently appeared in my Twitter feed and I wondered if anyone here could shed any light on it. I've searched for many words to describe this, including "cargo bike", "bakfiets" (a Dutch cargo bike, which it has a great resemblence to), "life of Budapest Lego" etc and nothing has come up. I've also tried searching for the set number on Google, Brickset, Peeron and Ebay, and it just comes up with part number 2620 and Duplo set 2620, which is a sports car released in 1980. Could this be a promotional set only given out at a convention or something similar? Any info would be great, as a big fan of cycling infrastructure in the Netherlands and of Bakfietsen, I'm very intrigued by this.
  3. Good Day. Got inspired to build this after an in-game motorcycle from Honkai impact 3rd Original idea was to use 2x XL motors, but it was boring af. Next obvious step were buggy motors - allowing an approximate speed of 10km/h. It could probably pick up a higher speed with BuWizz 2.0's Ludicrous mode, but fast mode of BW v1.0 is enough to topple the bike over when taking high-speed turns. Unfortunately it does require "training wheels" to ride straight, as it would lean on one side without those after taking a curve without those. The bike does feature rear axle suspension, and small wheels have shocks as well. "01" stickers reused from MPATEV, "police" from 42047. Design-wise it belong to the same "universe" as my spaceship and racers - an Axos Police bike used to patrol within city high-speed tunnels and surface operations. Video&photos, C&C very welcome and appreciated))) Cya later!

    [MOC] Ghost Rider's Motorbike

    This MOC is my representation of the Motorbike of the "Classic" Ghost Rider (Johnny Blaze and Dan Ketch) from The Marvel Univers. It's inspired by "the Spirit of vengeance" of the terrific builder called Ben Cossy on flickr and MOCS based on the LEGO Marvel video games. The MOC has 111 pieces... X6 and it's the devil's number ! The Showcase video is online on YouTube and the Building Instructions are available on Rebrickable ! The Building Instruction is a PDF file : https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-25824/BricksFeeder/ghost-riders-motorbike/#comments More shots below : I hope you enjoy the build! Let me know what you think about ! If you have some remark or problem with the instructions, let me know and I will correct. Don’t hesitate if you have questions!Moreover, could you post pictures of yours when you finish to build it and write a comment below please? Thanks ! :)
  5. BMW 42063 Dakar Race Bike First, thanks to LEGO and BMW giving me a great basis for developing this bike. As always with race bikes, this is not only a modified version, it’s definitely a complete new bike. And of course: You cannot buy this bike, it’s a race bike. There is only one bike produced, especially for me to win the Dakar :-) Let’s go to the key facts: Motor: Four cylinder 180 degree V New cylinder head Two studs narrower Frame: New geometry Reduced distance between the undersides of motor to the upside of the tank Massive improved ground clearance Suspension: Rear: More travel: 4.5 studs Better spring angle, smoother Front: Travel improved to 3 studs! New (worldwide first) spring linkage gives fantastic bike control Exhaust: Complete new Dual pipe, fixed (of course) with the frame (not with the swing arm) Quad outlets with yellow cross axle fire coming out ;-) Handlebar: Grip, position and new mounting Tank: Two additional rear side tanks positioned near the centre of gravity Optics: Shorter rear with red (not white – what’s up with you LEGO?) taillights Weight: Reduction through elimination of some parts Some other minor changes… So come on! Show me what you can offer to beat me! But I must say: On the Dakar 2017 you will definitely eat my dust! And this is the last time you will see this bike (except the red tail lights) J Have fun racing! Thanks for watching!

    [MOC] Z-4 Speeder Bike

    Hi all, today I present to you my take on the Z-4 speeder bike. This is mainly a mod of 75133 rebel battle pack but that speeder is oversized and I wanted to scale it down. I hope you like it! Here is the canon appearance of the speeder: Suggestions and constructive criticism are welcome!
  8. Hi all, Here is my next project. First i would like to say that this is shot as a really early design stage. This is the first rush on that project. I do command from TLG the new orange selector for gearboxes. I do not received them actually. My first impression when seeing them for first time was that they were designed and intended to fit into a bike gearbox. That it was their reason of existing. And, as you always have better following your very first inspiration I do began the work on this project. Pictures! First, the main frame. As it do exist multiple sorts of frame I choose one who is the less conventional in a sense for a Lego model: This frame offer many advantages on a scale model, the main one is to free a maximum of space for the mechanics. Other view: The challenges are quiet hard on this project. As for many small MOCs the smaller they are, the most compact mechanics has to be and hardest is the designer's job. I am not a designer and even not engineer so i'll try do do my best to reach my goals with the best result I can. Here are my (hopefully) goals: - Superbike inspired - 4 speeds gearbox, with, if possible but I do not figure out on how, a neutral point correctly positioned between first and second speed. - Shifter commands like the real machines ... On design point of view, those bike are often fully careened . I do not think this will be the best choice for a technic model, as it would be great to have a full look at mecha inside. Here are the very first rushes on design: As you can see on the pictures below, there are still so much work to do.... For those who follow my workflow, you will understand my working method. I will now rebuild a second model independently of this one. I think I must begin by the engine part included gearbox setting and stepper commands. If you have any opinion idea or experience on this subject, feel free to post your stuffs and inspiration. Good sunny day all !
  9. Hi guys! This is my minifig’s scaled ARATECH C-PH Patrol Speeder bike used by the Imperial Patrol troopers. It appears just few seconds in the second Starwars spin-off movie called Solo : A starters story but I very appreciate its design! :) Special Credits for the inspiration of some parts to : Luca s projects (<a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/158356948@N03/28684534188/in/faves-150499648@N03/">www.flickr.com/photos/158356948@N03/28684534188/in/faves-...</a>) BricksStudios (<a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/154427736@N03/28517703548/in/faves-150499648@N03/">www.flickr.com/photos/154427736@N03/28517703548/in/faves-...</a>) Showcase and Tutorial Video : Parts list : https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-15136/BricksFeeder/aratech-c-ph-patrol-speeder-from-solo-a-star-wars-story/#comments I hope you enjoy the build even if it's not perfect! :) keep on building!
  10. This hover bike was built by Squidman in 2009 as part of payment for a debt to the Skull Twins, and was one of two nearly identical space hogs. The second bike had an inverted color scheme with mostly white instead of black and was called Ivory. The bike seen in this post is called Ebony, and is the last of it's kind, as the other skull twin and his bikes were swallowed by a black hole while trying to outrun the Space Police III forces around seven years ago. The bikes features two laser weapons around the skull ornament on the nose. This three-engine hover cycle is one of the fastest bikes in the Milky Way, seconded only to legendary "Rewind 3", which went so fast it broke the time barrier. So far, it hasn't showed up again, but that hasn't stopped bookies from taking bets stretching back past the last 100 years to next millennium (or two). One of the mysterious Skull Twins... no-one knows what's under the mask, with some saying that he has no face, just soul-piercing, glowing red eyes. The Ebony bike and it's Skull helmeted driver left our galaxy for the Andromeda galaxy due to law enforcement pressure in 2011, and upon his return in 2018 found the galaxy a much darker, more sinister place with the Space police IV dictatorship in place. Due to his disappearance in 2011, this skull twin was declared dead a long time ago and is using this legal void to commit a great many crimes. (The bike was remade into it's current form using only parts from the set, with the addition of the skull twin helmet, head, dark gray pants, a 2 x 2 DBG tile, and a 1 x 2 black plate. This list obviously does not include the white mini-figure stand! ) As usual, comments, questions and complaints are always welcome!

Yep,the Guys in Billund decided it would be a good Idea to put this violent and quite mature DC character into Lego Minifig Form,and i couldn´t agree more. The Bike he comes with is quite a bloaded Mess,but nothing a bunch of Frag Grenades,some Booze and a Wrench couldn´t fix. I shrinked the Bike a bit to make it fit more into Minifig Scale but still kept the Design mean and gas guzzling badass. Hope you like my new Version of Lobo´s Spacebike.....if not,get the fraggg outta here :D

    [MOC] Police L.E.V. 5

    Police L.E.V. 5 (Light Enforcing Vehicle - Pursuit Class) Just thought I'd share this with you guys if you haven't seen it yet. The LEV is the most common police vehicle in colonies with a sanctioned judicial system all over human explored space. There are several classes of LEV modified for specific tasks. The Class 5 (Pursuit Class) is equipped with multiple types of suppression weaponry, jammers and a local weak inertia suppression field, protecting the pilot from high G-forces during hard accelerations. This is a power consuming ability but the being able to quickly overtake fleeing suspects is clearly advantageous. Built for 2018 Lego Speeder Bike Contest, Category: "ENFORCE" This MOC started with the Throwbot Visor (Windscreen) and then I just tried to find pieces matching it. While building this I came up with a neat idea to attach the windscreen to regular LEGO System:

    (MOC) the Spacehog (Lobo's Bike)

    Enjoy! SpaceHog 1 by outworlderohlendorf21, on Flickr SpaceHog 2 by outworlderohlendorf21, on Flickr SpaceHog 3 by outworlderohlendorf21, on Flickr SpaceHog 5 by outworlderohlendorf21, on Flickr SpaceHog 4 by outworlderohlendorf21, on Flickr SpaceHog 6 by outworlderohlendorf21, on Flickr
  14. Sorry to be lazy that I copied the description of this build from the Ideas project page. While the guidelines doesn't allow promoting, I just left a single link here. But I think Ideas platform is not the right place to gather real comments and demands about improvement of my MOC, so that I can keep make it better, and no place is better than here among the real Technic fanatics :D As both LEGO and classical bike enthusiastist, I was always trying to make a functional but not too out of scale engine for Technic's motorcycles. After a while digging in the Technic world of parts, I ended up with a new engine block which has proper size compare to LEGO's motorcycle's scale, created by normal engine block part and a little touch of decoration. And as a Cafe Racer fan, I tried out the new engine block into the most timeless design trend of the motorcycle world - a cafe racer. My biggest reference was Honda 1965 CB77's 2 cylinder engine, intergrated into a modern design. To design a Technic set is not just about aesthetic, construction and function are more crucial factors. The set should be quite playable, that means sturdy, visible mechanisms and their smooth movements. Those are my guidelines in the whole process of designing this model, and the results are these properties, listed below: No illegal connections. I tried to design without those creatively part placements, as a real LEGO's designer would do, and keep the playing age restriction as low as possible. Realistic functioning 2-gears gearbox and shifting mechanism. Working front and rear suspension. Working cardan axle for smooth power transmission from rear wheel to engine's crankshaft and vice versa. That's mean this bike can be pushed by hand to see working engine, and player could also connect the motorized power parts with the crankshaft and see it drives the wheel. Credit of stepper mechanism in gear shifting belongs to Lego Technic Mastery https://www.facebook.com/Lego-Technic-Mastery-345425069222914 And I will post this video of function first on Eurobricks before update it on Ideas, because you guys deserve to see it first xD
  15. Hello Guys ! I show you my MOC of the Speeder Bike 614-AvA seen on the SW Rebels series. This MOC has closed dimensions of the minifig's scale (a little bigger) with 88 bricks. It's not perfect but better than the 75090 set I think. And next to my minifig's scale ITT (building instructions will come soon!) You can find my first tutorial to build it on my YouTube channel !

  16. Thinking about rebrick.com BMW motorrad future contest, built something. It doesn't look futurstic. Maybe in future motorbikes also will be the same as now. Just some engine will be different. I would appreaciate soemthing with sound, so it could be still internal combustion engine, but running on some more nature frieendly engine, f.i. H. Model has opposite type 2 cylinder engine, connected to rear wheel with cardan, just like on most BMWs. More images http://bricksafe.com/pages/Jurss/bmw-moto
  17. Hello! :) I've got some inspiration from new Super Hero Girls series and space themes to build something eclectic for my favourite elves! I took some evenings and I enjoyed much building something technical. I think I will need more sci-fi sets soon and became true lego fan soon :D Aira is my favourite character, may be because she loves to create something :) This long flexible wire stored without use for a long time, it was a pity for me, at last I find out how it can make cool curved shape: Also I amazed how combines bright yellow and dark gray
  18. Hello good people of Eurobricks, The other day I built up the set 8051 motorbike applying some minor modification like different color scheme and some change on bodywork to make it look like more like a stuntbike. These changes did not alter the basic geometry and size. (apart from the rear fork what is one stud shorter.) Despite the fact that I caught the stuntbike feeling quite well (for my taste at least) I couldn't get along with the end product. I figured the wheels were slightly bigger (in diameter) than they supposed to be. So I grabbed my tape measure, digged up some pics on google of real bikes and came to the conclusion that these wheels are about 10 percent out of scale compare to the real proportion. The lack of width made the impression even worse to me. Trying to solve the problem I begun to play around with the old type bike wheels. I found their diameter is just the desired size but these were ridiculously narrow for the job. Searching in the forum here I've seen some builders used two of these rims with this tyre from the set 8448 Street sensation. The flat profile didn't make me happy though. Finally I worked out something using two rims and two tyres of the old type. The result has the right diameter, width, and rounded profile as it should be. (video at the end of the post) Here is a picture to illustrate the proportion problems: Upper left: Original 8051 Upper right: A random naked bike Lower left: my "pimped" 8051 with smaller wheels Lower right: The original wheels of 8051 built into a frame with realistic proportion As I said above the difference isn't huge, but it is there. Here is a few more pic to highlight the point I'm trying to make: I wonder if you guys share my opinion on this subject... Few more pics of these bikes: I know the front tyre sholdn't be this wide, but still better than a single (IMHO) Please note that this "connector bike" is still under development. It is meant to represent the size of bike I found appropriate to the wheel size. On the rear wheel I'm using the rear tyre of 8420 Street Bike. It fits perfectly on the new rim. Also I made a tutorial video, how to make that wide tyre modification: (Purist may find it disturbing . I can ensure you no harm done to any parts. Luckily those old tyres are so soft they can take any abuse.) Hope you can find some usefull in the post. Happy sunday.
  19. The author of the review wishes to thank The LEGO Group for providing of a set for the review! The author of the review wishes to thank VerSen for the Wonderful Photos and for an invitation to write the text for them! ;) The author of the review wishes to thank BaraSH for explanation of the differences between the Two Purple Ladies enlightment of I'm-not-a-comic-fan about the Batman universe! :) This review was written for Russian Fan Forum Lego (aka RFFL, aka phantoms.su) by me and translated into English for Eurobrick. The Lego Batman Movie 70902 Catwoman Catcycle Chase Review Set Number: 70902 Set Name: Catwoman Catcycle Chase Year Released: 2017 Pieces Count: 139 Minifigures Count: 3 Description: Brickset; BrickLink; Bricker;. RRP: $19.99 Price Per Piece: 14.4c This set is based on "The LEGO Batman Movie", which was released in theaters at 8 February 2017. According to the description of the plot of the film, Gotham City once again in danger, so Batman (alter ego of billionaire Bruce Wayne) is going to protect it, but on the advice of his butler Alfred he has to take Robin (Dick Grayson) as his companion, because the superhero adopted him on one of the secular reception. Together they will fight Joker and Harley Quinn, who escaped from the psychiatric hospital. There also will be many other heroes and villains the DC, and it is rumored that there is a chance to see the characters of other popular franchises (such as the Daleks from Doctor Who) in the film. The box and instruction On the box, according to the laws of Hollywood action-scene is depicted: Catwoman makes a U-turn on Catcycle, Batgirl tries to stop her using Bat-a-Rang, and Robin jumps from the roof of a jewelry store on the lamppost, trying to overturn it. However, if you look at the path of Catcycle it's become clear that Catwoman will be able to dodge both) Designers didn't forget to boast that a new type capes are able to fly an epic! Batman dashing smiles at us in the top right corner. The image on the instructions, as always, repeats the image from the box, but the instruction itself looks pretty well-fed for such a small set. Building in the process and random page of instruction. By the way, pay attention to the image on the upper side of the box - Robin jumps so that Batgirl could throw Bat-a-Rang at Catwoman who didn't expect such a dirty trick. I see that they have a great team! Or, perhaps, Robin simply slipped on the peel Bat-a-Rang. :) Unfortunately the set includes stickers - personally I don't like stickers, but there's nothing I can do.. But these stickers are are interesting ones! Firstly, an advertisement of the missing of a cat, which for some reason was photographed meows on the tree. I know who will save it) And secondly, a jewelry store sign is clearly reminiscent of the cat's head, and I somehow have the feeling that Catwoman decided to rob her own store. xD The minifigures In this small set there are three beautiful, very well-detailed figures. I can not help but notice that Robin deprived of utility belt with pockets... Apparently, he doesn't need the pockets, but the girls find these pockets very useful) On the other side the figures look great too. What a spine of Catwoman! If this torso wear shoulder pads, which hide a recognizable zipper tab in the form of a cat's head, you get a suit for cool superheroine of the future or a computer game, so this figure may be used in MOCs as well. Boots on the legsof the characters painted with back side too, not just the front and right and left, as before, that the obvious plus. This is because there are two layers of plastic. And about Batgirl I'll say that she have typical problems of many fem-cosplayers - it's when a ponytail sticks under the mask or helmet (that can ruin the impression of a stern armored robot). It looks funny) Robin (Dick Grayson) is the first Robin, who was taken into care by Batman after the death of his parents who was an acrobats. According to the comics, he has long helped Batman, then became an independent superhero named Nightwing, then became Batman, temporarily replacing Bruce Wayne when Bane broke his spine, then he helping Batman again, met with Barbara Gordon, at that time already Oracle rather than Batgirl, and in the most recent events he becomes Batman in Gotham, while Bruce Wayne becomes Batman worldwide. Robin, as well as Batman, doesn't have superpowers, but have the skills of martial arts, detective skills, and he is a perfect gymnast and a very good athlete. Robin minifigure is funny, especially the glasses. We immediately can see that the comical character is waiting for us in the film! By the way, he has two facial expressions - the smile is on both. Batgirl (Barbara Gordon) is the first Batgirl (except Betty Kane who was excluded from the canon), she was adopted by Commissioner Gordon, after her parents were killed in a car accident. According to the comics, she became a fan of Batman, and even built up a female version of his costume (decided to become a cosplayer xD), then saved Bruce Wayne at the ball masquerade, and later Batman invited her to join the team, ans so she has successfully fought against crime until while the bullet of Joker is damaged her spine, after that she became a hacker nicknamed the Oracle, and helps Batman and Robin by the radio, and the suit of Batgirl later passed to Cassandra Cain. Batgirl minifigure is beautiful from all sides, and now you will understand why. Just look at these shoes! Finally, the Lego starts to not just paint the legs on the side, but to apply the pattern on the side. These straps are perfect! Pattern on hands is less accurate, but also looks cool. Smile and wave! (c) Penguins from a film "The Madagascar" Batgirl has an additional face, it is angry. Catwoman (Selina Kyle) is a professional thief, originally an anti-heroine, and later a good character. According to the comics, she had a difficult childhood, and then she found herself in a orphans' home where cruel headmistress was a peculator, so Selina brought her to clean water, freed the other captives of orphans' home, and rushed to the thieves' life. She got her nickname from a jealous student of Sensei, which she shifted from a position of best student, then she inspired by Batman's example and built herself a suit. In later comics, and even in Nolan's film a romantic relationship shown between Catwoman and Batman. The combination of dark purple with silver - very good color scheme! Pattern on the hands of Catwoman - it's by far the best pattern on the hands in the set, and in general, IMHO, the best pattern on the hands that I have ever seen. However, it's a pity that it is impossible to remove the glasses in any way, as the second face (smiling) is also printed with the mask. Catcycle Catcycle is pretty stable, which is a definite plus for Lego bike, as they tend to fall on its side. Personally, I think he looks very stylish. By the way, if not the name of the set, then it would be unclear that it is CATcycle because there are no markings in the form of cat on it. This means that you can easely put Batgirl on bike, as according to the old films, she also liked to ride motorcycles. And note that she is also in purple suit! ;) Above view allows you to see the curved slope with a pattern showing a speedometer, which shows that the motorcycle has not gain speed yet) However, the speedometer still have cat ears... But this part is easy to replace, and then it will be just a purple bike, suitable for any minifigure. Main view and set functions So once upon a time, of the yellow-yellow dark-dark night Catwoman went to "work". On the way to the jewellery store she found an advertisement of the missing of a cat written by its desperate owners and the rare green trash container that appears in this color only in nine sets. So she walked around the store, the base of which is shown by masonry bricks 1x4, which is great, because it is a rare and useful piece, and because such a masonry at the base of the building can often be seen in reality. And Catwoman opens the door of the shop, which, unfortunately, is always closed, because the sticker "Open" is not included in the set. Maybe that's why she decided to rob it? :) Suspiciously glancing toward VerSen's camera surveillance cameras, Catwoman reaches for ruby, ignoring the diamond. Then she sits down on the Catcycle, which definitetly have not parked there before, so I am still inclined to believe that bike could belong to Batgirl. Cause the bike could not go by itself, isn't it? ;P And then on the roof and on the ground our valiant heroes appear! Robin cheerfully spoil the city property, overturning flimsy lamppost and Batgirl stay on the roof, as if hovering over it (I can not in any way understand how she stand, but it she is clearly stand higher than should, it's some cinema magic, not otherwise!), and watching him with delight! Catwoman's eyesight says "Again they are!". And now - a general view of a set, or "smiles at the camera!". :D Now even Catwoman is happy) Conclusion Pros + beautiful minifigures with detailed patterns, even on all sides of ths legs + rare and useful pieces, like a transparent door, green container and masonry bricks 1x4 + stylish bike that suitable not only for Catwoman + new type of soft capes are able to epic fly in the wind - what else is need for a superhero? xD Cons - stickers, which most AFOLs do not like to stick - no "Open" sticker, so the store will be closed constantly - no faces without masks, that means that the characters can't remove them This set is very, very cool, and will look great on a shelf of a collector! And finally, a little bonus shots) Bonus During the time we discussed the pros and cons, Batgirl flew somewhere) Apparently, she decided that Robin can cope on his own! Just look at this happy guy! xD In my opinion, he is not going to catch anyone, just having fun with a lamppost) Thanks for watching and any comments are very welcomed!

    Hi all, Here is my latest build for the LSB group competition over on Flickr. It's a Tron inspired speeder bike for street racing in the far future. Hope ya like it ;)
  21. This is my take on this iconic and all time classic scooter! Because of its very sturdy construction (a technic subframe support it underneath) and a great reception from my lego mates when I first introduce it to them, made me to take my chance and submit it on Lego Idea! Please support if you like it! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/165775

    This is my Nightline City entry for the Lego Speeder Bikes Racing League contest. The Atomic Arrow is an extremely fast speeder bike named after its dart-like shape and neon-green glow. Equipped with a gamma fusion engine, hard-light stabilizer wings, and powerful thrusters, this lean, mean, racing machine was built for speed! You can see it here racing down the Nightline City Raceway at breakneck speeds piloted by its rider Jade Lightning.

  23. INTRODUCTION This set is part of a new birthday party sub-theme in the Friends line consisting of 5 individual sets and is the second largest, and only one of two that come with a mini-doll. All five sets include animals, a gift box and a party invitation. Other sets in this theme are: 41110 Birthday Party 41112 Party Cakes 41113 Party Gift Shop 41114 Party Styling TECHNICAL: Set Name: Party Train Set Number: 41111 Number of Pieces: 104 Theme: Friends Designer: unknown Availability: retail Year Released: 2016 Price: $ 9.99 / € 9.99 Stickers: 0 New elements: 2 Exclusive minifigures: 1/1 Brickset entry Bricklink Inventory PARTS SELECTION: The set gives us a lot of recolored pieces and two new elements, the little chipmunks, or hamsters as bricklink refers to them, and some party hats. They are both obviously Friends style items, but I am sure fans of minifigures will find a use for them. The set comes in a box with two unnumbered bags. One of my favorite parts here is the new colored bike element in Bright light orange. We had a yellow bike in one single old set, so this is as close as it gets to that if you missed out on the one from the 90's. That's a new print on that 1x2 tile, and I assume it's an invitation for a birthday (or other) party - useful piece for generic use.The trans-clear round tile with pin isn't new as we got it last year, but if you missed it, you can get two of them here plus one extra. I am not exactly sure what they represent in the set, but they are useful pieces, so I am not complaining. The party hats are completely new elements and are held with pins like all the other Friends hair accessories and you get them in 3 different colors and an extra of each. The bright light orange 2x2 tile with bow print is in fact an inverted tile, it has studs on the bottom to fit snugly between panels of a box - these tiles aren't very common in general, and this might be the first printed one. MINIFIGURES: The little animals have holes in their heads so they can also hold accessories. I am not sure if these hamsters would be of use in a non-Friends environment, but if you find them too "cartoony" you can just pretend they are stuffed toys. Stephanie comes with an exclusive torso print for this set, and her hair is one of my favorite hairpieces for use on minifigures. It's her birthday, but she doesn't look a day older. BUILD: We start off with a gift box containing a bow and a little postbox so Stephanie can mail the invitations to her friends. Mind you she only has one, so I guess she doesn't want to attract a crowd. The next build is what looks like a park slide for kids, not sure exactly what all the pieces represent, there is something that looks like a soap dispenser attached to the slide, but just use your imagination, I suppose it's part of the venue where the party will be held. And then the actual train is powered by a push-bike connected to the carts. This may be the reason Stephanie only invited one friend, she only has room for one other person with all the gifts and pets. The first car has one of those panels to hold a mini-doll, the others are just 2x2 jumper plates. The bike element was designed long before mini-dolls so they aren't really adapted for them. She can loosely be seated on the seat, but her hands can't hold the handlebars which is a bit awkward. Maybe the friend she invited isn't a mini-doll. Leftover parts: CONCLUSION: The set is a great template for your own imaginative play and building. I don't think anything here is set very firmly to any particular story. Most of it doesn't make much sense from a grown-up point of view, but it's a great selection of parts with lots of variety and I think it can go very far for the low size and price. I am not going to estimate brick value here because there is more to it than that, This will be someones first LEGO set, any they'll always remember that funky, hamster-powered bike train. Just to get some AFOL perspective here, This set will probably be appealing to most of us for the bike. This is the 8th re-color of the bike element since 1985. The mold changed once for both the frame and the wheels, but the design remains unchanged. It works a bit better with classic minifigures though. Overall Design: 5/10 - Little brick goes a long way here, and just enough context is given to know what's going on, but I would have liked more accessibility which is partly due to restrictions of the mini-doll design. Parts selection: 8/10 – Considering the size and cost of this set, you get many new, and unique elements and no stickers. Play features: 8/10 – This set is all about play. Challenging build: 5/10 - I should look at this from a child's perspective, and I think it's just the right ratio between interesting and easy. Minifigures: n/a – I am no expert on mini-dolls, and I'm slightly biased when it comes to Stephanie because I like her hair piece. There's one figure, and it has unique printing, so that must be a win. You will have to get at least one other set to have someone to actually join the party though. Overall: 6/10
  24. I have a soft spot for the original TRON movie, seeing as it's exactly as old as I am ;) So it was my goal for a long time to build the iconic Light Cycle, and with the help of some custom lighting I finally have a working model: Photos & some reading: http://sariel.pl/2016/12/tron-light-cycle/
  25. To me Batman is the definite superhero ever since I was a child. Not only because of the Tim Burton film from 1989 was so much better than the Superman films (there wasn’t as much superhero-competition around back in the day!). I think what got me really hooked was the iconic animated series, which was launched a couple of years later, which picked up the tone of the film – and went off to give it its own and very distinctive feel. Oh, and it saw the first appearance of Harley Quinn, the mad psychiatrist, who fell for the Joker and became his hench-woman. One of the most iconic characters of the series, which leads us to today’s review of the Gotham City Cycle Chase, which features not only Batman and Deadshot, but also her in a prominent position! I happily admit that I didn’t really spent a thought on the bikes when getting this set. The character line-up was just too good for me to care about them. I wasn’t even sure if I would actually assemble them. I rather planned to use the parts for a proper batmobile instead (especially the tyres). But I figured, if I wanted to review the set, I should have at least assembled them once! When opening the box I was quite surprised to find the instructions in two volumes. I found that rather exotic for a relatively small set of 224 pieces, but it makes sense if you take into account that the pieces for the bikes come in different bags too. I think it is just meant to clarify the building process as much as possible and not mix up parts. As usual you start with putting together the minifigures. In this case its Batman and Harley Quinn. Deadshot follows in the second part of the instructions, together with the pieces for Batman’s bike. The characters seem to be modelled after the recent comics rather than the films, which works very well for me. I like Harley Quinn’s look in Suicide Squad, but I will never get used to stubby Batman ears. They just look as intimidating as cat-ears on a beanie-hat. Anyway, he looks pretty cool in this set and that’s the important thing here. The printing on his torso (back and front) is very neat. Just as you would expect it. It reminds me quite a lot on the 90s TV series. Sadly he doesn’t has dual-moulded legs or at least printing on them (yes, we are getting quite spoiled!). But he wears a new, soft fabric cape, which makes it easier to pose and sit him. Nice detail. The skin on his face is actually printed on a black head-piece. Quite unusual. It has a slightly more tanned look than other minifigures. Maybe Bruce Wayne is using spray tan to hide the lines of his mask? Harley features a lovely and quite extravagant blue and red outfit with corset and tiny metallic studs. It is really gorgeous to look at. No dual-moulding at the legs or the hair piece though. At least as far as I can tell as a non-injection-mould specialist. It at least appears to be painted rather, but looks very good and the colours are nicely separated.The little hole on top of her hair piece though just shouldn’t be there. But maybe it is an indicator that it was dual-moulded after all? Hard to tell. Her face is just perfect though. She looks cheerfully mad, which is just the right expressions for the character! Deadshot is a bit of an odd addition to the set. I would have expected a more classical villain from Gotham. Or maybe some random joker-henchman. He looks quite interesting though: His head and legs have a very cool metallic-colour, which gives the impression of a heavy armour suit. His torso and arms (he is the only character of this set who has printed arms) have some neat silver printing too. If you wouldn’t know better though, you would take him for a killer android instead of a guy in a metal suit. The only weirdness are the classic yellow hands, which look quite out of place on him. But since he has yellow gloves in the comics, that’s completely fine actually. Since he is the ony one in the set without a bike, he gets at least a quite impressive pair of gadgets for his job as sharpshooter: a king-sized bazooka-thing and a nice brick-build jetpack, which makes him not only very mobile, but also rather easy to hide and take the dark knight into his crosshair. The design of the bikes is relatively simple, with technic beams and connectors making up the frame. That makes them not only pretty lightweight, but also sturdy and quite modern and cyberpunk-looking. Not a bad thing at all. Building them is pretty straightforward too, as you would expect it. And thanks to the instructions and packaging it is almost impossible to pick the wrong pieces or the wrong places for them. The only part where I can imagine that inexperienced builders will have a moment of confusion or two will be putting the mounts for the wheels together. It’s not hard to do – just done in a pretty surprising way! All in all the bikes can’t quite meet the standards the minifigures, but at least they do a good job in matching the characters of their respective owners: Harley (perfect name for a biker btw!) Quinn’s bike is simply an odd thing with different sized wheels (big one front!) and an absurdly sized hammer mounted on a hinge, so that she can either punch down while passing by, or keep it tilted down and run people over with it. Not the most refined combat style, but simple and effective – and appropriately comical! Batman’s bike, on the other hand, is more refined and has some pretty nifty features: the rear fenders have stud-shooters and are mounted on ball-bearings, so they can be used quite effectively as gun turrets. Each of them also holds a clip for Batman’s gadgets, which are of course the typical batarang and a gun for shooting grappling hooks. Sadly it is mostly cosmetic though: it doesn’t has a rope or a shooting function. The overall appearance of the bike is more sleek and it looks really like something build for performance. Though, I am not quite sure what the rocket booster behind the driver seat is doing there. It is mounted about 45° upwards, so maybe it is supposed to create downforce – apart from not burning the tyre, as it would when pointing straight backwards! I am quite surprised what a lengthy review this became. Seems this set is a lot to talk about. I am quite happy that you get two of the most prominent characters of the franchise (and some other guy^^) at a comparably low price point. And they look indeed excellent. The bikes are pretty decent, too. Maybe a bit on the simple side, but they are totally fine for the price. I am very happy with the set and I’m sure it offers quite the play-value for kids too!
