  1. Blacktron I rises again! "You are now entering the Blacktron sector! This is the absolute limit of the Classic Space quadrant! You have been warned!" ...sorry about that. Had to get the legal stuff out of the way first! Anyway: Blacktron long-range fighter "Buzzard" Above is the two copies of the Blacktron XL-15, which are now dubbed the "Buzzard" type starfighter. So back in January of 2023, I decided to convert the XL-15 spaceship from the film "Lightyear" into original Blacktron colors. The blue became yellow, and white was turned to black, with all the trans-green removed. I added laser blasters under the wings where some technic pins are and put a different control tile in the cockpit. I was thinking about building a second ship, but then again, getting some of the parts from Bricklink was a total pain due to extremely low quantities in the needed color. (I'm talking about you, 3 x 3 wedge plate in yellow!) Thankfully, I bought one too many of both kinds of the yellow 12 x 3 wedge plates, as they are very rare as well with only one store selling four of each kind in the USA, which made making the second one easier later on. Blacktron command vessel "Executor" In addition to the two Buzzards, I wanted a Blacktron capitol ship. I had no ideas of my own ship, so I spent most of the afternoon of 10/5/23 taking Benny's beloved spaceship from The Lego Movie and corrupting it into a twisted, evil version. I revamped the nose, removed the expanding wing assembly and snub fighters. Of course I then recolored it almost exclusively in black and yellow. (some gray was unavoidable!) I armed it with a turret on the top rear where the sensor array once was, and put the commanders office below where the wing mechanism used to be. To keep with the one-word naming scheme of the original Blacktron, I borrowed the name of Darth Vader's Super Star Destroyer, decreeing this ship the Blacktron Executor. I struggled to think of an engine flame color that fit OG Blacktron, but eventually trans-light blue was selected. Since the wings don't extend anymore, I added a third section for figures with a turret on top in their place. The rear-most section lifts away, but the rest of the roof sections are supposed to fold open. The ship seats seven troops and 1 commander. Blacktron giant robot "Destructor" For this model, I used parts and ideas from the Eternals line's "In Arishem's Shadow" set 76155 (body / head / upper legs / upper arms) along with claw from the old Agents 2.0' "Robot Attack" set 8970. The lower legs and laser arm are (modified) holdovers from the "Build Better Bricks" Iron Giant instructions. (I need to fix the laser arm's elbow joint but I keep forgetting!) Blacktron "Shadow Runner" space car Recently, while I was on my Blacktron kick, I decided I needed a vehicle for the commander. So, after a few false starts with other models, I dusted off this old TRON Legacy Light Runner model and went to town modifying it. The model originally was made five years ago (was 2018 really that long ago?!?), and is based off the two-seater TRON set 21314 MOD that was made by BrickBrosUK and posted on Brickset here. The name Shadow Runner is a play on the Light-based vehicles from TRON. Blacktron minifigs These pilot minifigs are from the GWP with back printing (gotten from Pick A Brick) while the commander is mostly from the Series 19 Galactic Bounty Hunter CMF. NOTES: To be honest, I've had these built since at least last November, but finally got around to taking all these pictures just yesterday. Thoughts? EDITED 3/12/24: real world photos added and text changed around.
  2. Wanted to make the mech a bit more unique build-wise while also bringing in multiple elements from the Climber Mech. Also, I feel like the Elemental mechs released this year would have been way better if they had each come with an extra limb to further the mix and match gimmick.

    [MOC] Don't Panic!

    Build for SpaceJam 2023, 12x12 vignette category, I mace a retro robot. Don't Panic! by Ids de Jong, on Flickr A nice reference which is also applicable to the build, made up by @Murdoch17: Thanks for looking, C&C welcome.
  4. Hello everybody, I am finished with my entry but I did not have time yet to post any WIP content. Nevertheless I took some pictures during building, so I can show you my design process now: The CRAB - ROV - Camouflage Robot for Arctic Biotopes - Remote Operated Vehicle The idea was to build a sideways walking robot with an appearance like a crab. The leg kinematic is based on the Klann linkage: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klann_linkage This kinematic is actually used in some underwater walking robots right now, so I thought it to be reasonable to use it in some arctic vehicle. At first I created a test vehicle with 8 legs: Crab robot WIP 2 by n8walker23, auf Flickr Crab robot WIP 1 by n8walker23, auf Flickr This proof of concept went fine, the legs can easily move, rotate and lift the vehicle. The gearing down of the drive motors is not even necessary. The next task was to shrink that mechanism, as a smaller vehicle would be even more efficient at moving as fast as possible without straining the linkage or overloading the motors. A kinematic for the claws had to be designed as well. My layout would be: one motor for back four legs, one motor for front four legs, and one motor for each claw. So this was the next stage: Crab robot WIP 3 by n8walker23, auf Flickr Crab robot WIP 4 by n8walker23, auf Flickr The motion of the sensors (the eyes) is coupled to the motion of the claws and it has some simple bodywork. The eye motion can cover an area of roughly 45 degrees. This design was followed by the next optimization loop: Crab robot WIP 5 by n8walker23, auf Flickr Crab robot WIP 6 by n8walker23, auf Flickr I am quite happy with the bodywork at this stage. The rear propellers are driven simultaneous with the rear legs and the front legs are connected to a two-cylinder fake engine. The weight of the robot was 787g. Roughly 350g of that are the electronic parts. Now it was time to streamline the construction, decrease part count and weight and improve building quality. At the next iterations the robot would be modular. This made it much easier to apply little modifications, as it is not necessary any more to disassemble everything all the time to get access to critical regions. Also, I replaced the fake engine by a fan, as i found a combustion engine not really fitting to the concept. Crab robot WIP 7 by n8walker23, auf Flickr Crab robot WIP 8 by n8walker23, auf Flickr Crab robot WIP 9 by n8walker23, auf Flickr Crab robot WIP 10 by n8walker23, auf Flickr This is the final stage of the robot. Weight is reduced to 738g. Now I need to do some programming to have a nice remote control and to get good pictures and maybe a video as well. Regarding the colour scheme, I tried some variants, but some choices are already set by the colours of the mindstorms parts: Crab robot WIP 11 by n8walker23, auf Flickr I think (e) is looking the cleanest, so this scheme is applied right now. Most fitting to the contest would be (d) i guess, with mostly white and yellow. But I think it is a good idea to use the turquoise of the mindstorms box somewhere else in the model so the box does not stand out too much. This leads to a solution like (b), but I think, that is too colorful. What are your thoughts on that?

    [ MOC ] GLaDOS and Wheatley from Portal 2

    Hi, everyone! I hope, your Christmas was really merry. I've got a little present for you. Model of one of the best antagonist in videogame history. Genetic Life and Disc Operating System - GLaDOS And also one little nasty moron - known as Wheatley Originally I've this model out of real bricks lo-o-ong ago and it was hanging above mu desk ever since. This year I finally decided to digitalize it and, in process, make some improvements. Most important of which are - upgraded wire-like things on the sides, improved stability, ball-joint at the neck for better poses. And, which I am really proud of, I managed to add an offset for her yellow eye - so one white side is a bit wider, than another. Thanks to the ball-joint - GLaDOS and Wheatley's head are easily interchangeable - if you prefer this worst of all idiots to be at the head of your facility) If you want to build this model yourself - I've made instructions: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-168045/CogInTheMachine/glados-and-wheatley-from-portal-2/#details

  13. 01 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr Hello, Bozos! You can support Johnny 5 on Lego Ideas to turn him into an Official Johnny 5 Lego Set here: Johnny 5 on Lego Ideas Who is Johnny 5? Those who don’t know him, Johnny 5, also known as “S-A-I-N-T Prototype Number 5” or Number 5 for short, is a very lively and inquisitive military robot prototype who’s perpetually hungry for more “input”. He is the star of the 1980’s movies Short Circuit and Short Circuit 2 and a TV special called Hot Cars. He became sentient when he was luckily struck by lightning during a combat demonstration. Although he is designed to serve the military as a robot prototype, he has an adorable child-like behaviour and has a great respect for life. He is a peace-loving robot and refuses to use his military capabilities to harm others. Despite being very intelligent and inventive, his naivety and trusting nature has been taken advantaged of on several occasions. Design This model is fully motorised using Powered Up motors and hub and controlled through a mobile device using the Powered UP App. It uses Technic parts to ensure stability of the structure, and System parts to capture the look and form of Johnny 5. The following are the playable features of the model: Movement – This model can move around on tank tracks and uses skid steer to change directions. Body – Johnny 5’s body can tilt using a Powered Up L motor and controlled using a mobile. Arms – Arms can be raised and lowered individually using the Powered Up App. The fingers can be adjusted manually as well as the elbows. Head – The head can be tilted and turned using the Powered Up App. Eyebrows – Eyebrows can be manually adjusted to suit the desired facial expression. Laser – The laser at the back can be raised and lowered using the Powered Up App. Watch the YouTube video here to illustrate these functions better: Johnny 5 on Youtube Total Pieces: 2,711 Dimensions: Studs: W 68.4 x L 36.1 x H 73.5 Inch: W 21.5 x L 11.4 x H 23.2 cm: W 54.7 x L 28.9 x H 58.8 Weight: 99.8 ounces or 2.83 kg Johnny 5 MOC Pictures: 02 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr 03 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr 06 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr 05 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr 04 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr 07 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr 08 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr 09 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr 10 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr

    [MOC] Mazinger Z

    Hi all, After posting pics of my childhood hero Grendizer, I'm sharing some of his cousin Mazinger Z ! He's one of the most famous giant robots of Japan, and I tried to get his proportions right while maintaining great posing value, with joints on all the important places - it's been a challenging build ! I'm very happy with the result - so much that I made some adversaries for him, such as Doublas M2 : When the fight gets very intense, Mazinger can suffer - Here's what he looks like, inspired by the fight he lead in his final episode : And I'like to share a special version I made, inspired by the proposal seen on the Lego Car Blog to build in yellow and blue, which prompted me to make a symbolic gesture to support democracy : The fight is hard. War is ugly. But these cartoons - Mazinger, Grendizer - taught us life is more important than everything. And freedom is paramount. You can see more pics on my Flickr album ! Alexandre
  15. Both these projects were made specifically for an Xmas LEGO exhibition at all local mall that was ended middle of this month.

The specs: - 12 legged walker - Driven by 2 Lego Technic Large angular motors - Powered by Buwizz 3.0 - 1 Technic L motor powers the deployable spinning Lego buzzsaw - 1 Technic S angular motor to power the Lego arrow shooter Sorry Lego purists, but I had to use some non-Lego parts in this design: - 4.7mm aluminum tubes front run the width of the robot providing lightweight articulation of the legs in lieu of plastic axles - Stainless steels axles are used throughout the driveshaft due to the inherent limitations of backlash and breakage caused by the Lego plastic axles - Small nuts are threaded onto the upper leg pivots to maintain the connection as Lego bushes simply cannot retain the axles given the duty cycles.

  19. Hi all, Two years ago my girlfriend's son challenged me to build a 20cm Goldorak (Grendizer), my TV hero from 1978. I first believed it would be impossible, as I remember vividly trying to build a good-looking one with the parts available in the late 70s - fat chance ! So in 2020, I started browsing the Net for Grendizer and Mazinger MOCs, as well as other mechas for inspiration. I loved the models built by Len_d69, samsky76, Marco de Bon, Andrea Chaipella, Kaho82, Moko, but none was capturing the proportions of my hero to my satisfaction. After many, many hours of prototyping with real- and virtual- bricks (thanks MLCad, I love you), I could offer the boy his own Lego Grendizer for his Birthday. One year later, I've discovered how to make renderings with Blender so I can make clean pics of my creations... (it takes so long making real photos) so here's a selection. The figure stands 20cm tall, with a lot of articulations giving a lot of posing value. Here's a little fight to prove the point : Here are some of the baddies (Golgoths in French) he can fight with : ... and here's an ally in the form of his buddy Mazinger (I'll make a post for this one, who is much more famous than Grendizer ;-). You can see more on my Grendizer album ! Enjoy, Alexandre
  20. Update: Here is the latest version of the arm: Studio model available for free on Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-109607/glaysche/6-axis-robotic-arm-mk-2/#details Original post starting here: This is my first MOC and first time posting on Eurobricks. A few months ago, I got back into Technic by buying the Liebherr set (42100). I decided to design my own 6 degree of freedom robot. In doing research and experiments for this project, I was inspired by this post I found here on Eurobricks: I ended up making a lot of different choices in my model. Here is the big picture: I wanted to optimize for three things: It should work Maximum range of motion -- the wrist axes should be able to turn indefinitely and other axes should have as much range as is possible Built as compact as possible Here's the video with poor production values (and using a simple BuWizz profile to control it): https://www.flickr.com/photos/188456966@N07/49900167801/in/datetaken/ This was quite challenging to optimize it in this way. First of all, in order for the wrist joints to spin, they needed to be axle driven -- pneumatics won't work. In the example of the grabber at the end, I put an axle through the turntable to control the LA for the grabber. When the grabber turntable is spun, however, the grabber will open or close in an undesired way. To counter this, I used a differential and the correct gearing to compensate. Here's a picture of that: This is difficult to see in there. There is a new 2 piece differential (65413 / 65414) inside the turntable. The gears turn the differential at half the speed as the turntable which makes it so the grabber doesn't move when the turntable moves. The control for the turntable and grabber are axles on both sides that go through the next set of turntables seen here: The axle turns the perpendicular axle that goes through the turntable and is driven by another axle in the next stage. The stage has the same problem as the previous one where flexing the wrist will cause the grabber to turn and open or close. This is compensated with an additional two differentials and another set of gears. This one is particularly compact. Here's a picture of that stage: The lage gear there is a 28 tooth double bevel which is needed to get the correct gear ratio to the 28 tooth differentials. Pulling the side off of that, we see: There are three L motors (22169) here to control the grabber and first two degrees of freedom. I particularly like the gearing in the front of this section for the compensating differentials: As noted by Hanso in his series of posts, the end of this arm is actually quite heavy. I would have preferred to send all three functions though the next turntable but I could not find a solution that sturdy or compact enough. This weight caused trouble for the next turntable. To make this work, I used two turntables, one in compression and one in tension. There is a beam that goes through the center of the turntables that takes some of the load here. The next stage is a another stage that I would like to be able to turn forever so I don't want the wires to get twisted. In order to accomplish this, I also put the battery box on a turntable that turns with the rest of the arm. The wires go through this stage and don't get twisted. The humerus (in LBG) is very small (5x5) and it was a bit challenging to get the gears in there. The motors (XL 22172) for those next two axes very neatly attach there. The base has the last two degrees of freedom. The spin axis here uses a mechanism very similar to the Rough Terrain Crain (42082). The final axis uses worm gears to drive the turntables. There's a lot of force on this axis and I experimented with a variety of different gearing. The thing that worked best is displayed above. The center piece is driven and it gets geared down symmetrically to the axles that have the worm gears. Axle support was a bit tricky here: (Still waiting for the remaining black 7x11 frames to clean up the look here.) The 2nd battery box fits pretty nicely here: In conclusion, I think this works pretty well. I haven't explored the software at all yet -- just used BuWizz as a proof of concept. Many of the motors would work much better configured as servos. I wish Lego would release an SDK for Control+ so I could write an app similar to the Liebherr controls. My day job is actually a software developer so it would be pretty fun to build a full featured app to control this.

    Blacktron Droid Factory Lego Ideas

    Back in the 90s I used to think the Message Intercept Base was a Futuron Base diguised as a Blacktron one. Many times I thought how it would look a true Blacktron1 Base. So I designed this project and make something more "mean" more "rebelious" a base with modules which could be used both as rooms in the base and also as parts of vehicles or ships. I wanted to take the interlocking modular concept used by Lego on the Blacktron 1 sets to a new level and giving a fresh look to the retro space subtheme. Also give them droids which actual look like automata units for different purposes like spy units or guards. Enjoy it and if you like it, give it support. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/0f9caab4-1d4a-4207-ae82-60b6cc8b61d9

    [MOC] PAIGE

    PAIGE (Prototype Artificial Intelligence, Gynoid Expression) was created by robotics student Letta Arkwright to simulate the kinds of social competencies she struggled with in her own day-to-day life. PAIGE is powered by a digital brain with an unprecedented social learning engine. As PAIGE teaches her creator to relate to others and to understand her own emotional needs, she is also learning for herself what it means to be a person. This model of PAIGE uses over 830 pieces, stands 18.1 inches/46 centimeters/57.5 modules tall, weighs about 24 ounces/672 grams, and has 36 points of articulation. Her mouth, eyes, and eyebrows can be adjusted and/or swapped out to display different emotions.

    [MOC] Raideen

    Hi all, for once I haven't built a Go Nagai design, but chose another classic robot design by Yoshiyuki Tomino, who famously designed Gundam afterwards. This super robot is Raideen : Raideen is one of the earliest transforming robot designs. He can change into "God Bird" : (I'm still not totally happy with God Bird's beak design rendered in Lego, though - any suggestion appreciated !-) More pictures on my Flickr page : Enjoy !
