  1. The engine seen below originally came as a generic British 2-6-0 from the Block Junction website, to which I added two extra leading wheels and a new paint scheme inspired by that found on London, Brighton, and South Coast Railway locomotives around the turn of the 20th century. But wait, you say, there were no 4-6-0's in that time period on that railway, or even ever painted in that scheme later on! I know that, consider this a experimental one-off that was a hushed-up trial in superheating. (or something similar they were trying back then) Anyway, a group of close friends and business leaders bought the one-off loco from a backlogged scrap dealer in the early 1930's and preserved it. (These people later became the LEGO Rail Transportation Society in the late 1940's, saving more and more rolling stock and locomotives before saving a to-be-torn-up branch line during the Beeching Cuts of the mid-1960's.) The engine was repainted to LBSC colors somewhere in that time, and re-allocated it's old number X1, designating it as a experimental engine. Over the years, the engine was restored to working order, and had it's troublesome super-heater removed entirely and replaced with a better one. It now runs as a mixed-traffic loco, puling tourist passenger and freight trains alike, just as it was designed to do in the late 1890's / early 1900's. The letters LBSC will go on the tender walls, while the engine will feature X1 on it's side. The block junction page I bought the original 2-6-0 from is seen here. Close-up view of the three passenger coaches, from which Annie and Clarabel (from The Railway Series / Thomas and Friends) contributed their designs to the look of. …and here is a close-up view of the guard's coach, which features a compartment for luggage and the guard himself. (That's a UK version of what we call the Conductor here in the States.) NOTES: Now, I know the coaches are a bit short in height by a single brick (or is the loco to tall?) but otherwise it looks odd if I change it to be taller / shorter. Any thoughts, comments, or suggestions? They are all welcome!
  2. These models are heavily inspired by Whoward69's fleet of train cars, as seen on his Flickr feed and his instructions linked below. First up is a set off a crane wagon. I modified the original model model's instructions to include a longer base for the crane, and using newer parts to make it a bit more durable. The rear of the crane car should feature six of this print where the yellow 1 x 2 tiles are. The crane car can move side to side or up and down with two sets of ropes to either raise / lower the hook or operate the boom. Please NOTE: I don't have the exact measurements for the two strings as they wasn't listed in said instructions. However, I think two of this string here should be long enough. I also added a flatcar carrying train track for the crane to off-load. This Box Van was a Banana Van when I built from these instructions. I already have two boxcars in this form, and thought four more would be a good idea. This flat car was just a random addition to the train, with no real specific prototype. The brake van was mostly made from these instructions. I embellished the design with a couple of my own touches to keep it in line with the above-mentioned boxcars. I was inspired by the Lone Ranger "Constitution Train Chase" (set number 79111) and it's jail car to add tail lights to this car. This print should go where the black 1 x 2 tiles are under the rear windows. The LDD file for the six boxcars, one depressed center flatcar and the singular guards van is available for download here... ...while the crane car and flat wagon are available for download in this link. Comments, Questions, & Complaints are always welcome! (NOTE: These models should be built IRL by January 2018!)
  3. Hello, I'm here again. after my first Pirate's MOC ("Taverna") today I want to show you all my first ship EVER. This is my version of a classic imperial guard ship , iconic set 6274 Caribbean Clipper. Now I show you step by step, how I built it. Please, sorry for my bad english, I hope you can understand me. Enjoy and please, leave a comment and give me a lot of advice on how to improve because I've never done a sailboat before. I saw extraordinary work on this forum, you are all very good, real master builder! P.S. sails, unfortunately, are NOT original!

    Kaliphlin Border Guard

    I was thinking about forced perspective, 15 minutes later... One of the many border guards that patrol the eastern edge of Kaliphlin.

    Lego Imperial Armada

    So my birthday is coming up and i just LOVE the Imperial Armada minifigures. If anybody here has any idea where to get some, please let me know. I've tried Ebay and Bricklink, but I don't think they have enough to quench my conquistador lust!
  7. Hugo Strange: Wake up Mr. Wayne, we have much to discuss. Bruce Wayne. Strange! You won't get away with this! Hugo Strange: I already have. Bruce Wayne: Shut Arkham City down, its out of control. Hugo Strange: Shut it down? By the end of tonight i will be a hero, just like you BATMAN! I feel i should thank you, capturing Bruce Wayne is so much easier then Batman. And now that we have you Protocol Ten is ready to begin. It will be my legacy, a monument to your failure and if you try and stop me, i guarantee everyone will know you secret. TYGER Guard: Welcome to Arkham City, Wayne! Inmate: What are you going here, Wayne? Inmate: Did you kill your butler? Inmate: Your going to die in here, rich boy! Inmate: Your going to be my bitch Wayne! Inmate: Your mine! TYGER Guard: Back on the ground! What are you waiting for, Wayne? Line A, Move! Black Mask: No one arrests Black Mask. No one! TYGER Guard: Line A, prisoner! TYGER Guard: Wayne! You're in line A! Move it, rich boy! TYGER Guard: You two get out of the way! Wayne! Get your megablocks up here! Floyd Lawton: Bruce Wayne? you're on my list. Bang. Hahaha TYGER Guard: Move up, prisoner! Hugo Strange: Lower your weapons. Mr. Wayne will not be any trouble. Will you, Mr. Wayne? The cuffs can stay on. We don't need to make things too easy, do we? TYGER Guard: Close the doors. Prepare for insertion! Based off the opening from the video game "Batman: Arkham City" I really enjoyed this build but it was a pain to photograph. I also added some more Arkham City items in the Moc too, try and guess what they are. I would of liked to add a lot of prisoners but i only had one orange torso and the inmate one from the Arkham Asylum set, so that sorta takes away from it.
  8. Hello again! After recently reviewing the Mirkwood Elf Army set I figured I would try my hand at another review, albiet a much smaller set this time.. the Lake-town Guard polybag! Name: Lake-town Guard Set Number: 30216 Pieces: 31 Price: $4.99 Ages: 6-12 Minifigures: 1 Theme: The Hobbit Year of Release: December 1st, 2013 Price Per Piece: $0.16 Package This set comes in a standard sized polybag with clear plastic on the top and bottom and printing in the middle. We have the same blue scene at the top with the dwarves hiking across a mountanous landscape. In the foreground we have the contents of the polybag assembled which are the small catapult firing, a weapon rack holding a bow, and Lake-town Guard holding a spear. We see everything placed on a dock, and in the background a nice looking Lake-town building. There's not much going on with the back of the package, as to be expected. Just some legal mumbo jumbo, info about where the parts are made, and a sad baby because he isn't old enough to play with Lego yet. Contents Here we see all the pieces inside the polybag. There is a nice amount of brown pieces, a few dark green, dark red, black, and gray pieces. The instructions all folded out. Like the other Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug sets we get a nice blue weatherd look on the instructions. The front page shows the complete catapult build and the start of the weapon rack. There is also the friendly reminder not to fire catapults at your friend's head. The back of the instructions show the rest of the weapon rack build and the finished results on the left side. On the right side we have an advertisement for just the Lake-town Chase set which makes sense considering that would be the set you most likely want to use the Lake-town Guard polybag with. Minifigure Ahh, finally the good stuff! The stuff everyone is going to buy this polybag for! The STUFF everyone buys ALL Lego for! Err, ahem, too far? In all seriousness though, this is an excellent polybag for this minifigure alone. He has very detailed armor printing on his torso and legs and comes with a new molded helmet only seen in one other set which is Lake-town Chase. The silver arms are a nice touch, though they seem to be a bit darker than some of the printing on the torso and legs. Still, it's not terribly noticeable. The back of the minifigure. There is much less printing on the torso and none on the legs, but it still looks nice. There is no double sided printing on the head because the back is visible even with the helm on. Another frontal view, this time with the helm off. The helm is definetly a nice piece with several different colors and textures. You have the marking on the front, the fur below that sticks out on the sides, and then the ear flaps below that on either side. The minifigures beard looks more orange in my pictures than it really is. It is more closely the the light brown/tan color seen on Eomer. This is a new head print apparently only found in this set and the Lake-town Chase which has an identicle Lake-town Guard. Build Wow that was fast! With most of the instructions for this build on one page in the instruction manual, there isn't a lot of step by step to show you guys that you can't see yourself. I feel like the dark red and green pieces sort of clash with the brown of this set, but I guess it adds some detail. Obviously the build is extremely quick and nothing terribly interesting sine the polybag focus seems to be on the minifigure. Still, it's nice to have gotten two different weapons even if one is an old spear mold (would of loved a newer one in black with a silver tip). Extra Pieces Again not much to show when it comes to the extra pieces in this set. You get a gray pin, a dark green cheese slope, and... that's it! As to be expected in a set only containing 31 pieces I suppose. Conclusion Overall I think this is one of the BEST LotR/Hobbit polybags we have recieved yet. The Uruk-hai polybag in the first LotR wave was great, but we already had the Uruk-hai Army set as a cheap way to mass soldiers and bricks making it a bit redundant. The Mirkwood Elf polybag released last year with the first Hobbit wave was more unique and gave people a nice option to mass elves at the time, but with the release of the Mirkwood Army set this year it has severely diminished the value imo. You can get elves and bricks in the MEA for cheaper AND they have proper printing that's not an olive green/dark green clash. There is also the Frodo, Gandalf, and yet to be released Legolas polybags, but all of these characters can be gotten in more interesting sets so they don't have much appeal besides as super cheap impusle buys for kids, or parts packs for AFOLs. The Lake-town Guard minifigure is only available in one other $50 set at the moment, but he is a figure I think most people will want at least a couple of. It's nice to get a rare character people will want mulitples of, in a cheap set, with the correct printing. Maybe Lego will release another cheap option with Lake-town Guards in it next year, but as things stand now the polybag is the ONLY option to get Lake-town Guards on the cheap. They also seem to be much more widely available at TRU here in the states right now making it easier to obtain. The Mirkwood Elf poly was only available two times or so at TRU last year and that was it, but the Lake-town Guard has been made available multiple times already. Playability: 8/10 For a $5 set I feel it has quite a bit of playability. You get the catapult and a weapon rack for the guard to use, both things a soldier would want I suppose. Design: 7/10 Neither of these builds are seen in the movie, from what I remember, and the colors kind of clash, but overall the builds feel ok. Price: 9/10 Since a large part of the piece count is the minifigure, the price seems ok. I would of preferred $4 (who wouldn't?), but $5 isn't bad. It may also be $5 because as of right now it's only available at TRU and we all know how they love to mark up the prices on their sets. If you can find it during a BOGO 50% off or $25 off $100 sale, both of which Toys R Us commonly runs, you can get this set for just under 4 bucks making it a much better deal. Minifigure: 11/10 This is obviously the main draw of the set. The figure has beautiful printing and a new helmet mold, as well as offering a great option to collect a few Lake-town Guard figures if you so choose to do so. I feel like the minifigure is obviously the star of the set and the main reason anyone would get it, even more so than with another bigger Lego set. Parts: 7/10 Nothing really great in the parts selection. Even the weapons are pretty common. The only unique parts are the minifigure Total: 42/50 Thanks for reading guys! I hope you all enjoyed this (short) review!
  9. Repo "RANCOR and Co" for moving the DEATH STAR
