  1. I recently learned that in the general figure collecting world, it is well-known that most plastic bags are bad choices for long-term storage of figures. What happens is a lot of plastic bags, especially the ones for food, are not designed for long-term storage. A lot of them contain acids. In time, entropy does its job, and the plastic decomposes, releasing fumes. In sealed bags, this can cause damage to figures. Now, I've heard a solution is to poke holes in the bag to allow the figure to be ventilated, but I find this to be useless, since I am also trying to protect my minifigs against humidity and mold. It seems that the safest way is to get polypropylene bags, which are designed specifically for collectibles and are the ones used in bags for comic books. I found that info here: http://www.mhtoyshop.com/storing-your-loose-action-figures/ My question is, does anyone know if Lego figures are as susceptible to this kind of damage as regular figures? If that is the case, I have hundreds of little baggies to replace...
  2. Hi all! After the 1st & 2nd wave of collectable minifigs, TLG has filled gaps (and then some ) in the variety of minifigs. But I like to here what you still think is missing! Please post them here and make them detailed like this: Gender: Occupation/print on torso: Type of headgear: Type of facial expression: Color on torso/legs: Accessory: This is not an offical request through the Ambassador program, I just want to get the feel for what we´re missing and possible send a list to TLG!
  3. Previous: CDC2 CMF: socalbricks [Freebuild] Citizens of Historica Figbarf I made a whole post about a group of adventurers called "Cobold's Crusaders" back in October. I've made a few changes (more on that at the end) - everything in this post is now the new "canon". Enjoy! From left to right: KarsKingdom: Avalonia Race: Unknown Sex: Male Age: Unknown Height: 6’4” (1.93 m) Bio: A mysterious (if not “eccentric”) bounty hunter with tracking abilities that border on being supernatural. Little is known of his early life - what is known is that he was found drifting down a stream (on the verge of death) by the Valken family, who nursed him back to health. During his time on the farm, he developed an unbreakable sibling-like bond with their youngest daughter, Ayra. Records indicate that Kars would leave the Valken farm after a year (for "their own safety") and join the Avalonian military in the war against Raavage. His skills in tracking and wilderness survival would eventually see him transferred to a Cedrican Commando unit led by Cobold McTavish. After the war's end, Kars would return to mercenary work. Tracking everyone from bail jumpers and escaped criminals to kidnapping victims, he would acquire a fearsome reputation for "never losing a quarry". Some targets (upon discovering that Kars was tracking them) purportedly opted to surrender and spare both parties the trouble. It was during this time that he would receive the nickname "Silver Eyes" (as his steely gaze "cut like a surgeon's knife into your soul") and "the Bloodhound" (due to his uncanny senses). During the war, Cobold had become a mentor figure for Kars, who would gladly answer the call of duty when Cobold would form the "Crusaders" a decade later. With the group in desperate need of a medic, Kars would recruit Ayra to their cause, who was more than happy to help. Due to his personality, Kars has very few friendships/relationships. The few he does have are incredibly valuable to him, though. Skills: master tracker, wilderness survival, stealth, enhanced senses (especially sight), proficient swordsman, lanky build hides surprising physical strength Hobbies: birdwatching (a hobby he shares with Ayra), tracking anything/anyone ("if you love your job, you will never work a day in your life") Personality: introverted, analytical, intensely loyal, socially awkward (has no understanding of sarcasm), hates people who are "picky"/"high maintenance" Cobold McTavishKingdom: Kaliphlin Race: Dwarf Sex: Male Age: 96 (48 in Dwarf years)Height: 4'8" (1.42 m) Bio: A dwarf of many talents, Cobold is engineer/chemist/toy maker from the Rakath Mountains. A demolitions prodigy, he was recruited by the Cedrican royalty to create a bomb that could turn the tide in the war against Lord Raavage. The result was a revolutionary design – though large and unwieldly (needing at least two people to carry it), it could bring down a wall and end a siege within minutes. The bombs would see deployment on the battlefield by Cobold and his commandos; it was on this crack team of elite soldiers where Cobold would meet Kars (a mysterious tracker from Avalonia) and Ulriq (a hulking refugee from Nocturnus). Cobold hoped the bombs would be used to bring down walls, and nothing more. Doing so would end a siege much quicker and save the lives that would've been otherwise been ground up by slow progress. Somehow, his designs (which were supposedly well-protected by the Cedrican Royal Guard) found their way into Nocturnus. They were used by Raavage's forces to devastating effect, who targets them at soldiers instead of walls. Cobold realized that he created a monster – not only were they being used against his own men, but if his designs proliferated enough, they would make war more destructive than ever. As Raavage’s forces were obliterated and scattered throughout the Nocturnan wastelands, Cobold made a point of destroying every blueprint and model of the bomb he could find, doing so until he was satisfied that he had eliminated every trace of his creation. After the war, Cobold returned home with Kaliphlin, and decided to follow his passion of being a toy maker. After all that destruction, he decided it was time to pursue something creative. In recent weeks, news had begun to trickle out of Nocturnus of a militia group known as the “Crimson Wind”, led by one of Cobold's former soldiers Ulriq. Lending out their services to the highest bidder, they strike fast and disappear just as quickly (cleaning up any remains of their attacks). However, a few pieces of shrapnel have managed to escape their grasp. The evidence is clear: Cobold’s bombs are back in production. With this revelation, Cobold has decide to assemble a team to venture into Nocturnus, defeat the Crimson Wind, and destroy every last trace of his creation. Having always had a "flair for the theatrical", the dwarf has named his team "Cobold's Crusaders", much to the chagrin of his "lieutenant" Kars. Kars thinks it sounds "silly" - Cobold jokingly retorts that Kars is "no fun". Queen Ylspeth and Cobold are both aware that there is a traitor somewhere in her government. Directly funding his mission would require much manpower on her part (increasing the risk of the traitor being privy to their plans). However, she has referred him to the Sinclair family in Valyrio, who have agreed to bankroll his mission. For now, all the young Queen can give is her tacit support. Skills: toy making, master chef, demolitions expert, engineer, master tactician, skilled hand-to-hand combatant, small size obfuscates physical strength Hobbies: toy making, cooking, axe-throwing, military history Personality: boisterous, passionate, leads from the front, can be somewhat stubborn and impulsive (something tempered by his lieutenant Kars), intense guilt over past actions Ayra Valken Kingdom: Avalonia Race: Centaur Sex: Female Age: 26 Height: 7’5” (2.26 m) Bio: Growing up on an isolated farm in Avalonia, Ayra Valken had an simple and idyllic childhood. Her family (consisting of her father, a combat medic, and her mother, a former school teacher) were always willing to take in anyone passing through their neck of the woods, even adopting a young centaur named Brielle. While Mrs. Valken would homeschool them, Mr. Valken would instruct them both in the ways of combat medicine (a field which involved fighting off attackers just as much as tending to your allies). Brielle and Ayra had different takeaways from this: Brielle would eventually become a fierce knight, sworn to protect the innocent, whereas Ayra would become a gentle healer who avoids violence whenever possible. As a centaur, Ayra knew that a single kick from her hind legs could kill a man - all the more reason for restraint. Some time before the war against Raavage, Ayra found a bloodied Kars on a riverbank near the farm. Taking him in, the family nursed him back to health. To repay their kindness (and to "lay low") Kars stayed on the farm for over a year, during which he developed a sibling-like bond with Ayra and Brielle. Around the same time, Ayra began showing signs of the "Emerald Flame"; an exceptionally rare magical power that could heal any wound imaginable, albeit at a cost of energy to the wielder. The more severe the wound, the more energy required. The magic could also be used to create impenetrable barriers and telekinetically move anything from fallen debris to injured people. In combat situations, the magic is only supposed to be used defensively. After this revelation, Ayra would travel throughout all of Historica, helping those in need. She would accept no monetary payment for her services, only being "paid" in food and lodging. When Kars approached her (on the orders of Cobold) and asked if she wanted to join his "Crusaders", she heartily accepted, both out of desire to help those suffering at the hands of Crimson Wind and out of loyalty to her old friend. One of Ayra’s worst fears is her fear of being a burden on someone. When someone does a favor for her, she always insists on repaying that debt in some way. It’s a trait viewed as equal parts flattering and annoying. This fear also causes Ayra to not voice her misgivings regarding a particular issue - when repressed, this can sometimes lead to bitterness/passive-aggressiveness. She also has several phobias, including claustrophobia, thassalophobia (fear of deep water), and acrophobia (fear of heights). These fears largely stem from her physiology (and are shared by many of her fellow centaurs). Centaurs generally do poorly in tight spaces (due to their "unique" proportions), are awkward swimmers, and prefer to have their hooves placed firmly on the ground. Though she will travel anywhere she is physically able to help those in need, Ayra also has a strong dislike for large cities. Their narrow streets and small shops are crowded with people (playing into her claustrophobia) and her naturally heightened sense of hearing (common among centaurs) makes it hard to tune out the constant noise. Though this leaves Ayra somewhat susceptible to “sensory overload” upon entering a city, she won't let it stop her from helping those in need. Being so well-travelled means that Ayra has been to an endless number of restaurants, taverns, and inns all throughout Historica. As a centaur, she has a large stomach, with a large appetite meaning that she can take several items from the menu in one sitting. This has left her uniquely suited to being a restaurant critic, and she is currently compiling a book with her reviews. Skills: healing magic, "practical medicine" such as herbalism, heightened hearing (shared by all centaurs), can deliver "a mean kick" from her hooves (but never does so because of the potentially fatal results) Hobbies: food criticism, bird watching (due to her heightened hearing, she can supposedly identify most birds by sound alone), herbalism, relaxing walks through the woods Personality: kind-hearted, gentle/easy-going, avoids violence whenever possible, worries about being a burden/has multiple phobias, has a reverence for nature and all forms of life, unofficial "team mom" Gerard Renwick Sinclair IIIKingdom: Valyrio Race: Human Sex: Male Age: 31 Height: 5’11” (1.80 m) Bio: As the youngest son (and only bachelor) within a Valyrian aristocratic family, Gerard Renwick Sinclair III has struggled to stand out and make a name for himself. Having so far lived an uneventful life, he is the only member of his family without any heroic tales to tell. This has caused him to worry about being the disappointment of the family. Since the War against Raavage, the Sinclair family have become steadfast (tacit) allies of Queen Ylspeth. The queen has referred Cobold's Crusaders to the aristocratic family, who has agreed to bankroll their mission. Gerard has also agreed to join them, seeing it as a golden opportunity to prove himself to his family. Though he is eager for adventure, he still has to get used to life on the road, where people sleep in the dirt and make-do without three meals a day. Gerard often butts heads with Kars, who has little patience for his complaints and "fussy" behavior. Due to his aristocratic upbringing, Gerard received a massive education, making him the team's resident negotiator, historian, etc. Skills: master fencer/sword-fighter, master negotiator, knowledgeable historian, knowledge of "aristocratic etiquette" Hobbies: wine-tasting, fencing, classical literature/art Personality: gregarious, obsessed with manners, picky, desperate to prove himself, has an affinity for "the finer things in life"
  4. Hello, I have been designing some custom LEGO stickers lately and I'm really enjoying it, I have found this place near me that prints good quality vynil stickers. The problem is that these stickers are quite thick, so they won't work for example for the legs, cause they come off when the leg bends. Same for the heads when putting on hair. Is there thinner vynil sticker paper that would work for the legs? What's your experience? I'm also considering waterslide decals, I've read the tutorials here on the forums. I couldn't find any recent example of custom minifigures made using this technique, can anybody share some hi res photos? Also, is there any way to print light colors on dark pieces with waterslide paper? Thanks! ;)
  5. Given the internet's love for the misadventures of aristocrat-turned-pirate Stede Bonnet and his crew aboard the Revenge trying to make a name for themselves as pirates, I had to do a liitle MOC.

    [MOC] The Gilded Crow

    164C Ahoy! She is finally complete and here are a whole bunch of photos. She appears in most photos as I have her on display - turning to port under full sail, flying her red flag of attack, with guns ready for a full broadside. Approximate dimensions of the Crow, based on a 1:40 scale. Length - 128 ft Beam - 55 ft Height from waterline - 115 ft First, some shots displaying functional minifig areas of the build, like the midships. Poop deck. "I think this compass is broken, Captain." Dining cabin. Then we move fully below decks. Fore to aft, the crew quarters (note the rat in the brig to the left of frame - it took me ages to find one of them and so disappointing that it looks more like a possum then a rat ). Main gun deck: And, astern, the galley. Next, some model type shots, that show the crow as she appears on her display base. The final crow design on the main course. The crew bids you and your ships fair winds and following seas... until such time as her Captain stops playing his organ ( ) and sets the Crow on the hunt. There are more images on flickr https://www.flickr.c...57645632299833/ Hope you enjoy the images.
  7. I like looking through the Purist Superhero Thread and seeing and the custom super hero figures people make, and I just thought that there shouldn't just be a thread like that for Superheros, and that there should also be one for Star Wars figures. If there is already a thread like this, then sorry, go ahead and delete this.
  8. I was searching for minifig parts on the Pick a Brick store and Pieces and Bricks / Replacement Parts service website. While Torso and Legs parts are mostly under the same Design ID (for example 73200 and 76382), minifig heads are using a different design ID for each printed face (For example..., See also the Rebrickable page for #21342). The general 3626 part number is used for non-printed parts only on those services. The first few paragraphs of this page explain this problem: http://lego.wikia.co.../LEGO_Questions Is there a list somewhere of all the minifig heads parts listed by TLG Desing ID? I searched everywhere and couldn't find one. Thanks! (P.S.: feel free to me this topic somewhere else if it's not in the right category )

I incorporated what I believe to be my best SNOT (Studs Not On Top) techniques yet. DESIGN PROCESS As with all of my MOCs, I started by doing a rough sketch of how I wanted it to look. I took heavy inspiration from 76105-1 The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition. This means that many design elements are taken from that mech. For example, the design of the legs is very similar to, but not a direct copy of, that robot.

    [MOC] Lidl Grocery Store

    Hi everyone! What you can see on the pictures is the end of a story, which began in 2017. At that time I studied on a university in Hungary. All in all that was a horrible time, but it had also some advantages. One of them was, that in Hungary it is really easy to find a job as a student. The companies need always people, and of course the students need always money. That’s why there is a very good system there for finding a job or finding employees. In my current place in Austria, the marketplace for jobs is completely different. As far as I experienced, people don´t need so much money and companies also don´t really need employees. That´s strange… (Maybe it´s necessary to add, that these jobs I´m speaking about - in both countries -, are bad jobs, like cleaning, working on the fields, factory jobs, etc. So jobs you can calmly do parallel to the university and don´t need your whole brain capacity.) It doesn´t matter. Much more important is the story. Because of the facts above I could try during the school years more that 15 different workplaces. Including better ones, like being a guide in a very old monastery. And including Lidl. Actually Lidl was a better one, too! It was also interesting. So I decided to build an exact model of it. I started to build the model immediately, but after that a lot of things happened. I went to Germany for a year, after that I came to Austria, I always found something more interesting to build, etc. So the model was always at the background. But now, finally it became ready! Before I started working in Lidl I had to read the product placing strategy. This is something you never forget. That´s why the interior is completely detailed. Because of scale reasons it has not so many things in it, as a real store, but the different groups of products are exactly there, where they have to be. After the entrance there are chips and stuff like that, after them the fresh things, like bakery products and vegetables. At the back there is the non-food part and the refrigerators (mopro). On the way back to the cashdesks are the drinks for example. Notice the two different sizes of the pallets. The 3x4 stud variation is the Euro pallet, the other one which´ size is the half of the Euro pallet is the Düsseldorf pallet. It is also very important in Lidl. It was also said to me, that there are only shopping carts and no baskets, because the parents always allowed the kids to sit in the baskets. And it´s not hygienic. Well, the kids are sitting in the shopping carts as well. And not on the seat, actually in the cart. Another things you never forget are also on the model. For example a student, who is cleaning the floor with a pushbroom. In Lidl it is really taught you, ho you have to use the pushbroom. Let´s see what a customer doesn´t see. The warehouse and the offices. The machine near the garage door is for the empty paper boxes. It presses them, you put cables aroud them to keep it together and after that you can bring the package out on a pallet. That´s a cool thing. Which is not cool is that there are no place in the warehouse. If you want to bring out pallet “A”, you often have to bring out pallet “B”, “C” and “D” before. After that you can bring out pallet “A”. After that you have to bring back pallet “B”, “C” and “D”. After that you can start to fill the shelves from pallet “A”. That is also a mission impossible scene about it in the warehouse with a pallet jack and an employee. The most interesting thing outside is maybe the big Lidl sign. It contains more that 100 parts and is of course completely without glue and stickers! You can read the word “Lidl” on both sides. Another thing is the parking spot for disabled people, which I posted a bit earlier. Here you can find details about that. What I like on the building is the roof. I guess it turned out great with the angles. The different chimneys and the parts of the ventillation systems are also designed after the real ones. Hope you like the model! Thanks for watching and reading! You can find more MOCs from me on my Flickr page!
  13. Hi everyone! It happened to me earlier as well, that I worked on a part of a MOC so much, as on the MOC. In such a case this part deserves an own picture! So here it is, the parking spot for disabled people. Downtowns are problematic places. At the city where I spent most of my time during the school years (Győr, Hungary), these spots were only signed by a road sign. But it was often not clear, which spot, or how many spots are actually for disabled people. And the downtown has in general too many sings with too many information on them. So it happened often, that people parked their cars not on purpose there. A few years ago the city decided to paint the whole spots blue to make it easier to realise them. It looks really cool! So I decided I recreate it with Lego bricks. I build the first version in 2018 I guess. I didn´t published it because it looked like a man sitting on a toilet and not on a wheelchair. A few month later I went back to the model and changed it a bit. A few month ago I could travel back to Hungary despite of the COVID-rules. And I took the BIG Brother picture. Hope you like it! The MOC in which it is will come a bit later! Thank for watching!
  14. Not entirely Technic build, more like model team approach at minifig scale, but the video is about some challenges when it comes to making something this small with RC. Not a complete success, but the video should be interesting to watch

    [MOC] Minifig Mover

    Over on the Train forum a few months ago, @SavaTheAggie posted about his MOC called Quarter Scale Rail: Having worked out how the chain was made by watching the video, that post inspired me to come up with a MOC to allow moving Minifigs to be added to a MOC. The video below illustrates a sample of the Minifig Mover in action. Cutting straight to the case, building instructions are available on rebrickable.com. The primary design considerations were; for it to be compatible with the MILS system it was desirable for it to be possible to be run very slowly make it suitable for incorporation into MOCs Secondary design considerations were; to be able to achieve a 180 degree turn within the with of a single baseplate to aim to have small modules which could be joined to form a larger be assembly Comments/learnings/observations Each set of building instructions illustrates a baseplate within a building step. The baseplate is for reference purposes only and is not listed in the parts. The premise of including the baseplate is to show the relative placing of the parts with respect to a MILS baseplate. Experience suggests that the channel in which the chain runs needs to be perhaps 22 LDUs (LDraw units) wide. This width is reflected in the construction. If you try to build the channel 20 LDUs wide (i.e. the width of a 1 x N brick) you will likely find it too tight for the chain to run smoothly. The Minifig Mover is presented as a foundation on which to build. Thus, as can be seen in the video, the motor and tensioner assemblies are exposed. The suggestion is to build appropriate elements of a MOC to contain/hide these assemblies. Via the MOC posting on Rebrickable, you can download not only the building instructions but the original LDraw files too. The premise of doing this is to encourage others to use the design as a starting point and then publish improvements or alternative track modules. Regards, David

    Heart Melter Mk 2

    After building version one of this mech a couple of months ago, I realized that I needed stronger joints. It would hold a pose, but just felt to fiddly and prone to flopping over at the hips. This new version feels much sturdier, and I've made instructions for it and shared them on Rebrickable. See more on flickr
  17. I'm interested in rare/uncommon minifigures and I came across this guy on Bricklink: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?M=ovr023&name=Overalls Gray on Orange with Pocket, Gray Legs, White Cap - Glued&category=[Town][Classic Town]#T=S&O={"iconly":0} Only produced for a factory display in Germany, only got out because they fell out from under the acrylic glass on occasion. There aren't any available but I can only imagine how much they're worth. I'm looking to broaden my knowledge: what are some similarly rare/expensive figures/figure parts? Not talking about examples like the 2013 Captain Rex, 2016 Thrawn etc that have shot up in value now but were not difficult to acquire when available (although figures from sets aren't completely excluded if older, limited distribution etc)

  19. Figbarf, Magnhildr the Wanderer. Put this character together for another bash at the Heroica RPG quest being run in the games section. Parts: Ninjago Hair, Widowmaker Head, Kraven The Hunter collar, Fabric cape from Star Wars, Torso is a Rebel/Resistance. Weapon from Ninjago, Black utility belt. Legs are TLM2 Wyldstyle. Character: "Little is known about Magnhildr; "she" has been recorded by the tribes for centuries, wandering in and out of settlements with useful items to trade - food, hides, tools and scrap the people could use traded for entertaining trinkets. A barbarian by necessity, the icy wastelands are a dangerous place. Those who have simply encountered her have been scared off by the stern looking figure. However, the families she has traded with for generations know a different side of the Etherian they call Mags. A person who loves the fractals of the ice she wanders through and has been known to swap a valuable item for a child's drawing." With Theme Music! More MOCs for this figure will be coming, the little backdrop is a go at something Techno-Magical. Thanks for taking a look!
  20. Once again I dug up something from the 80s... and once again it's something related to a movie police character called "Murphy" - Frank Murphy this time, to be precise. But although this Lego version of the Blue Thunder helicopter is in minifig scale unfortunately for Frank I wasn't able to incorporate functional cockpit doors... sorry Frank, you're stuck in there for all eternity! I hope you like my take on the iconic Blue Thunder from the 1983 movie. If you like it and you're up for a bit of a challenge you can find the free instructions here & some more pics here. Thanks & may the Gods have mercy upon poor old trapped Frank's soul...
  21. Hello, everybody! I live in a place where acquiring LEGO (sets or parts) is incredibly difficult due to many reasons, including the inability to buy online. I would like some ideas concerning minifigures I never had. What I would like is: -A head design for Kit Fisto (Purist, and I can apply decals for the face. I just need ideas for the tentacles.) -Luminara's hat. -Aayla Secura's twi'lek tentacles -Pong Krell's head. If any of you have any ideas, I would be extremely glad to learn from you! Thank you!
  22. Besherazakiel, God of Vanity and Ambition I don't really have any additional story beyond the title, sorry! This build was made for the "Style it up" contest, hosted by Innovalug. The contest has one challenge/category per week, and four in total. This (2nd) week's challenge was to make a 100% symmetrical build. I have built elaborate deity-like minifigs before (see below), but I have to say this is on whole new level. The wings came together quite quickly, I think I've actually spent more time aligning the parts to keep the symmetry, haha! For comparison, some figs I made a few years ago: And that's it, I hope you like it! C&C appreciated!

    [MOC] Gypsy Wagons

    LIFE IN THE SLOW LANE... Gypsy wagons have been around for a very long time, having primarily been seen with travelling circuses, before being adopted by gypsies. The "Horse drawn, painted, one roomed house on wheels with a stove" is believed to originate in France in the early 19th Century. Gypsies themselves adopted them around 170 years ago. Its Romanesque characteristics, its baroque carvings and bright colours are likely to have been picked up from wanderings in Central and Eastern Europe. The Gypsyes' name for their wagons is a "Vardo", from the Iranian name vurton, that means cart. There were six main types of wagons and they were made of oak, ash, elm, walnut and pine. Most caravans were pulled by draft horses. I've always been intrigued by Gypsies Wagons and in the past few weeks I built a couple of them. Inspiration come mainly from a coffee table book my wife gifted me, "Les Roulottes, une invitation au voyage", a big source of colourful and funny caravans. It was very funny designing and building these caravans and also choose the right Minifigures from old sets and Collectionable Series. If you are wondering why Jack Sparrow is in the MOC the answer is that I think he has the perfect look of a yesteryear Gypsy :) A few pictures below Below the Wagons pulled by horses...

  25. Gargoyle Amber Ceremonial Guard Although these seemingly lifeless statues are usually found in a ceremonial solemn mood, the weapons of the Amber Guards serve more than merely decorative function, as anyone who has ever been met with a swift blow from a massive granite sword will surely tell you. Animated by ancient Gargoylean runes and Amber magic, these fellows fight fiercely when the ancient graveyards are disturbed by trespassers. So better honour the aeons.
