  1. Hi everyone. I'm new here, and I really, really wanted to show you my latest MOC... the legendary Scrooge McDuck's Moneybin. The project is also available on Lego Ideas (link at the end of the post), but first let me give you a tour, so you can check with your eyes if it's worth your vote . Be sure to scrool the pictures till the very bottom. I promise you won't regret it. LEGO SCROOGE MCDUCK'S MONEYBIN by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr This is the front, with the iconic huge dollar sign. The armored door is the first element of playability: it can be opened and closed pulling the two bars attacched at the side of each half. Also, it is not very clear from the picture, but the small stairway has two lion heads at the bottom, to give the entrance an imposing and intimidating touch IT'S HUUUUUGE by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr As you can see is quite a tall building (33,3 cm, or if you prefer 34 bricks, from the baseplate to the top of the dome). On the roof we have the famous dome, that here I adapted into an helicopter landing pad. I couldn't not include the cannon to shoot at the evil Beagle Boys and a telescope to read the newspapers for free. MONEYBIN OPEN by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr Ok, now the interior. I wanted this set to be fun for adults to build and extremely fun for kids to play with, so it had to be easy to access every feature. The easiest way was to put the front wall on a separeted baseplate, so all you have to do to 'get in' is to push it away. As for the floors, they can be easily removed thanks to the trail design: they slide in the groove bricks inside the external walls, so it's easy to get into action FIRST FLOOR by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr And now the ground floor. I designed to be the most intimidating possible. Imagine: you are a business man and you have a meeting with the richest and toughest duck in the world. As soon as you enter, you don't have the time to enjoy the nice floor with dollar mosaic because you notice that a security camera is pointing at you. The frame with "TIME IS MONEY" also is not very welcoming, you wait your turn on the green sofa... and then you realize that is placed right in front of a giant anti theft protection cannon. As if it this wasn't enough, you also have a Scrooge McDuck's painting that seems look at you. AND IT IS, because that wall hides a secret passage, with an hole to spy from behind the painting... but what's so important that Scrooge wants to hide? SECRET PASSAGE by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr - Treasures, of course. What else do you expect from the richest and most adventurous duck in the world? Notice also the black lever to turn back the secret passage ;) SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr Here you can enjoy the anti-theft protecion cannon in action... "Say hello to my little friend" SECOND FLOOR by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr And now the first floor, with the private rooms of Scrooge. On the corridor, a picture of him from when he was to work as gold prospector in Klondike, but most of all, the frame that says "There is no such a thing as talent, only inspiration and ambition". But let's see better the others room... BEDROOM 1 by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr Have you ever tried sleeping on a canopy bed made of 100 dollar bills? Trust Scrooge, you will sleep like a baby BEDROOM 2 by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr Sleep well, but get up early: Scrooge knows it well, he even has a frame in front of his bed to remember it. On the bedside table, a nice family picture from great comic writer Don Rosa. SALON 1 by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr And now the salon, or is it better to call it "Worry Room" ? Why do you think that carpet is threadbare that way? Scrooge's nervous walking, of course. What a shame, it was only 60 years old . We also have a library, a pendulum clock and a marble bust with laurel leaves (I can easily Scrooge get inspired by great leaders from the past). SALON 2 by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr COINS BATH 1 by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr Here is Scrooge, literally showering in money, happy as a baby. COINS BATH 2 by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr He even has the shower curtain made of dollars SCROOGE'S OFFICE by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr And finally the second floor, with his big office. This is definitely my favorite floor, I made sure to put EVERY SINGLE DETAIL that I remember from the comics: EVERY SINGLE ONE. There is the giant vault door, the display case with his beloved number 1 dime, the earth globe, the weelbarrow full of coins, the pyramid of coins with Donald polishing them, the money bags, the graphic wih his profits skyrocketing, the gun on the wall, the desk with multiple phones and an old crank calculator... but wait, what's that lever under his desk? FUNCTIONING TRAPDOOR by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr This is my favorite feature. I didn't like the classic way to make the trapdoors work, with the stick to be removed and then manually put back. No, I wanted it to feel real, so I designed the mechanism in a way that opens the trapdoor when you push the lever forward, and automatically closes it when you pull it back. What do you think about? Please let me know THE NUMBER 1 DIME DISPLAY CASE by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr POOR DONALD by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr THE GRAPHIC OF PROFITS by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr Ok... now the moment you were all waiting for...what it would be the MoneyBin without the giant money pool with his 3 cubic acres of cash? Let me explain how it works: sure, you could open the vault hatch, but to access the money pool, we actually have to go to the back. The back wall can be removed (it's easy to pull thanks to four bricks that stick out). With the back wall removed, we can admire the money pool thanks to the 9 big transparent panels . We have the trampoline, the giant meter to measure the level of cash... and not a single coin. why? Maybe the Beagle Boys stole it all? No, it's empty because you are the one going to fill the MoneyBin. The MoneyBin is in fact a giant piggy bank, that you can fill through the apposite coin slot on the back of the roof. Once filled, this is the final result IT'S A PIGGY BANK by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr AND NOW THE IMPORTANT PART... Guys, this project is available on Lego Ideas at the following link --> https://ideas.lego.com/projects/a633c276-5b5b-40fe-badd-217263dc37a8?fbclid=IwAR3W4jDpJswdFFF1hRky_HCFrREsiHsWpDzGBrUer8b2mVUHzAqcDjgqiJY Probably you all know what Lego Ideas is, but in case you don't, here is how it works: 1) users (in this case me) upload their creations 2) other users vote them clicking the yellow button support (you need to have a Lego account, it's free to create one) 3) When a project reaches 10.000 supporters, Lego's experts will take it in exham to evaluate if produce it as an official Lego Set. Very simple. WHY THIS PROJECT NEEDS SUPPORT (BADLY) I love Scrooge McDuck, but I have the bad luck of Donald Duck (which I equally love), because Lego never cared about Scrooge McDuck, they only released a minifigure many years ago...until I decided to create this Moneybin. Then Lego Group decided "Let's do a Scrooge McDuck set", and they released set 40477, the Brickheadz of Scrooge, Huey, Dewey and Louie. That they are completely different from my moneybin, but that's enough for Lego to say "We don't accept anymore Ideas with this theme". So, when I uploaded my project for the first time (it was actually themed DuckTales, not even Scrooge McDuck), they rejected it because of violation of third party IP. So, I had a choice: see two months of hard, passionate work going to the trash can, or rework it, removing all possible references to Scrooge McDuck. I went for the second, and I transformed into his arch-rival Glomgold's Moneybin. That's why on Lego Ideas you see it with the G on the front wall (as a joke, I made sure that the parts making the G are the same of the dollar: change the order and you will get the dollar sign ). Needless to say, Glomgold is waaaaay less famous of Scrooge McDuck, and the fact that I can't use name, image or minifigure of Scrooge McDuck gives me waaaay less visibility and appeal. That's why I courtesly ask you to support this project if you liked what you saw. I really believe in this project and I think deserves a chance. Afterall, they already have the licence, they should just go with the original version i proposed first. Once again, this one is the link --> https://ideas.lego.com/projects/a633c276-5b5b-40fe-badd-217263dc37a8?fbclid=IwAR3W4jDpJswdFFF1hRky_HCFrREsiHsWpDzGBrUer8b2mVUHzAqcDjgqiJY In the following days I will try to upload a video, more photos and also my CUSTOMIZED EXTENDED VERSION, with one more floor to discover, and the iconic hill on which the Moneybin sits. Thanks to all the ones who will help this project become real
  2. Here it is! Refinished and redone, with a couple of added bits and bobs, the Mountain Oracle! Ascend the steps of her mountain sanctuary, and just maybe she'll speak to you of the future. This is a MOC I created a while back, I've made some upgrades since the first version. The fountain down in front, as one, as well as that waterfall coming out of the mountain. And a second partial tools up on the hillside to the right. And yes, that staircase is a lot more sturdy than you'd think. It's supported from underneath the platform landing as well as by several clear supports that are hidden behind the staircase itself. This is the original MOC, that's been improved. This MOC (the resubmission) is now gathering support with blazing speed on LEGO Ideas! If you like it and wish to support it, please consider doing so! Thank you! :) https://ideas.lego.com/projects/f31174e5-f828-4ea8-858b-9014d457cbfc You can check out more pictures here on the Flickr page!
  3. This set was one of my favorites when i was young. It was my first "big" lego set and Orient Expedition was one of my favorite themes. Therefore i started to recreate this set in Stud.io and maybe I'm gonna get the parts to build it. I started with Sam Sinisters (or Baron von Barons) biplane, this is my first prototype: Doppeldecker, auf Flickr Doppeldecker_2, auf Flickr Doppeldecker_3, auf Flickr Doppeldecker_4, auf Flickr Let me now if you have any suggestions. The next part is going to be the ropebridge.
  4. Support a LEGO Idea? Submitted this idea to LEGO, but built it to fill a need for more steam punk builds in general. Anyone who's familiar with steam punk have some details they would add to this that could make it more appealing? In 1865, a time traveler came to Abe Lincoln and told him his gruesome fate. Wanting to avoid this, Abe agreed to come aboard the time traveler's vessel and live his best life: treasure hunting through time! Along the way, he gathered a crew of history's most adventurous people. Along with Abe came Cleopatra, Sun Tzu, Socrates, Robin Hood, and Blackbeard. He persuaded these celebrities of history by offering fame and fortune beyond their wildest dreams. The vessel itself is a hardy steam-powered copter ship that can travel on water or through the air. It is driven by a lightning rod device that uses static electricity in the clouds and lightning to power its fuel cell attached to the wheel. That wheel is connected to a helm clock and an engine clock where the crew can set a course for any time throughout history. One can remove the rear deck in order to stow helpful items and treasure! A rear propeller thrusts forward movement while side propellers affect the yaw. Heavy chains keep the rotor and engine assembly stable while in flight. Get ready for adventure and fun as this all-star crew wets their feet on this maiden voyage tea party! Support this time machine idea!
  5. Special Thanks to you all. My Lego ideas project (X Eyed Junction) is about to reach 1K. Creativity and imagination is the concept of Lego and this project too. It is an entire new idea in itself. A thought from imagination to reality. Never seen of heard before. 10,000 votes will make this junction becomes a reality. Click the link and hit "support" => https://ideas.lego.com/projects/07905230-58bd-4963-8662-a89dddcdbe34 You would not have ever heard about this. It is an Innovative idea. No Movie!!! No Theme!!, but just imagination and innovation. Designers start on a theme and then the fantastic model comes up, but here its exactly reversed. The JuNcTiOn got created first and then the name, theme started to pop up. Sounds little Funny right, but it really worked. Look at the name and link it with the Junction. The 2 Big X symbols at the Top and of course not to forget the EyEs looking for you. From this the name came out as “X Eyed”. To further on the excitement, we both (my 7 year old champ and myself) tried to Rhyme and shine. X Eyed becomes X Sight (Rhyming with Excite). That’s about the name. Like wise there is much more interesting things. Hopefully you CuRiOsiTy is arousing more and more COME one, COME all In every Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall, X EyEd JuNcTiOn is standing Tall. Awaiting to Welcome you All !!! Location It cannot be in a forest of cement (city), but some place which is little windy and the natural air keeps the atmosphere cool. Can’t think of a long highway stretch alongside a beach, but of course little desolated. This location serves a natural feeling and suits the JuNcTiOn. Surrounding The JuNcTiOn, in its own, is open from all sides as like our ThOuGhTs, which have endless possibilities. For better ambience, the 2 antique cars and stranded ship has been positioned on each side. This does not completely cover the JuNcTiOn, but it wraps an amazing feeling over it. Entrance The entrance will surely catch your attention or should I say, it will catch your Eyeeeeee. Whether it’s the X Eyed at the top or the little plants on the side. Careful !!! there are monster tooths on the pillars. Of course, you can’t miss the 4 circular studs hanging around. The pillars combine and form the shape of an Asian palace or temple with a golden pyramid at the top centre. A small red light at the centre is eagerly awaiting to welcome you. Hey!!! Wait, don’t drive away with Antique cars. It is for your pleasure only… Hope you enter soon !!! Inner place Hey, its really great and amazing. You have finally set your foot in here... We always spot big things first and so you will notice the Stranded ship. But there are other things too. You can better hop to the corner glass holder to get you glass or grab a drink from the table. Did you notice, there are 2 semi circular areas where you can stand out loud or just have a heighted seat. Cautious !!! Don’t bump into others as its gets little crowdy sometimes. You can always take a quick snap with the stranded ship or just Hop on to the Antique cars for fun. The EyEs are not just at the entrance. Look carefully, it is also at the Antique Cars and the Stranded Ship. It is like signaaaaling you Beware !! We are keeping an EyE on youuuuu… Color The color combination is revolving around Brown and it shades with a combination a dark red. This matches to the color theme of Sand and goes well with the surroundings. Light & Bright JuNcTiOn opens up in the evening and the transparent lights of red, orange and yellow brighten it up. The light and color theme goes hand in hand. It will glow in the dark. Don’t you think that the NaTuRaL Mooooon Light will further add on to the charm. Stranded Ship Don’t Whisper and tell this to anyone. Let me tell you a secret… SsSsShhhhh… It is not a ship but a ship like structure so that people get amazed. I just got some old parts from a shutdown factory, colored it, assembled it, put on some lights and that’s it…. Does not really look like… I know, but don’t share this with anyone. I Trust you Antique Cars Why does it have such a design? Whats so special about it? Think, Think and Think. Whosoever visits here is thinking on them and so will you J. You figure out for yourself. Take some time to think.

    [MOC] Jackal Staff Oasis

    Welcome to the Jackal Staff Oasis! Deep within the sands of a long lost desert, the glittering oasis beckons. Rising amongst magnificent date palms and tranquil, lotus-covered pools, is a fabulous temple containing the vast treasures of the surrounding kingdoms. Young Amata has been sent to retrieve the fabled, powerful Jackal Staff contained within this lush paradise, to bring back to her kingdom in need. I built this MOC digitally about a year and a half ago, with the intention of using it as a contest entry, but then ended up not using it. Later, I revived the design and built it in physical bricks. The model has 1522 bricks total, and measures 12" long, 15.6" wide, and 8.9" high. My favorite part about the whole build is the garden in the front with the water features and the palm trees. A close second would have to be the columns for sure! More pictures can be found in our Flickr album! https://www.flickr.com/photos/orientexpress24/ This MOC is currently up and running on LEGO Ideas! Any support would be greatly appreciated! You can support it here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/4dbf14ab-a99a-4252-9949-e59d34fc6616 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sItTWTtWhjk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=towPSgd78t4
  7. Hello everyone, as i didn't see any Mods topic for this set, i decided to start it myself, and to start, i would like to share with you the LDD file for the official set (not sure if there was one already), there are some parts missing and some pieces are not fully connected (could i have used developer mode to solve this? yes, but for some reason i decided just to place apart the pieces i couldn't fit in), here is the model: Missing parts: -x4 24118 Panels in Dark Purple (Brick-built and grouped in the model) -x11 6167281 (I didn't add any substitute) -x1 6187734 (The rope) LDD file:http://bricksafe.com/files/imanol/42069/42069.lxf And next is my modifications for this set so far, the first thing that i wanted to do was to put wheels and tires, and because this is an snow-themed set, i decided to put tumbler tires, and i knew that these tires didn't look good in those very wide axles, with these tires the vehicle would look silly, but after narrowing the axle a little bit, i think it is looking like an authentic snow expedition vehicle (it even looks like an JLTV from the sides), i also changed some colors, but is just a test (the model is still WIP): The goal is XL-Motor for drive, Servo Motor for steering and M or L-Motor for the winch (and possibly some lights): I hope you like it, i will try to make more improvements, and i am looking forward to see more modifications by any other member, have happy modding.
  8. Flameo my fellow Avatar fans, I’m a huge fan of ATLA and I need your help. Recently I have submitted a project on LEGO IDEAS, it's the Spirit Oasis from Avatar: The Last Airbender. As you might know LEGO IDEAS is a website which allows users to submit ideas for Lego products to be turned into potential sets. So If my project reaches 10.000 supporters it may become an official LEGO Product. Many Avatar Fans including me would love to purchase another LEGO ATLA Set since the original sets from 2006 are not available anymore. Check out my project: The Spirit Oasis Project on LEGO IDEAS All you need to do is press the support button and create a free LEGO Account if necessary. Thanks a lot, Every supporter counts!
  9. So, I've been pretty miffed about dolls since they came out. I actually was pretty interested in the friends set as a concept as there is a market for it, I just think the dolls were a misstep. Elves, on the otherhand, made dolls even more of a misstep, turning it into a tragedy. For background, I love fantasy, and I love Dungeons & Dragons, and Tolkien, you get the idea. For a while, we've been rather deprived of a proper fantasy setting, and I feel elves could have alleviated to downright fixing this problem. However, I feel that the potential of the theme was diminished when they decided that Dolls and the more 'cutesy' molds would be an integral part of the theme. I don't dislike, in fact I heavily approve of the color decisions, both from a moc perspective, and a theming one to depict a more fantastical and fey fantasy setting. Hell, I'll probably pick up these sets at some point when depicting my D&D groups going through the feywilds! The hair pieces they went with are perfect for stuff like Eldarin, Wood elves, and high elves, even more D&D style gnomes in their younger years (if you haven't picked up on it yet, I'm always hoping Hasbro sells of Wizards of the Coast so that LEGO has an excuse to pick up D&D as a theme!). But going back to the dolls themselves, they lack a great amount of customization (I'm pretty sure the forums have threads on this already), and I feel were a wasted opportunity for more minifigure designs: heads, torsos, legs, accessories, all muddled by introducing the dolls. At least the hair is compatible. I understand that LEGO is trying to vie for a share in the girl's toy market, but I feel that it's not the best way to go about it. For one, they isolate a lot of the LEGO market by using the dolls in the first place, as I know some AFOLs don't like using them as they have very little range of setting or look. Why did LEGO decided to place dolls in one corner of the market when they could have made a really appealing all-rounder simply by using regular minifigures and more interesting molds? Do the dolls have more fans than I give credit for? So, I guess the reason for posting this is, do you think LEGO will come out with a new fantasy set soon? I know Nexo Knights had a really small wave that probably marks its end (didn't keep up with news if it was cancelled or not), and how long is Elves lasting? Are they going to release more Tolkien universe sets with the new Netflix show? Are they ever going to make a new original IP or revive Castle in the near future? I'm not caught up in the current rumor mill or what's been revealed for next year, so I'm wondering if any of this has been addressed recently.
  10. I created the Rocket from Hergé's The Adventures of Tintin, Explorers on the Moon! This project has also been submitted on LEGO Ideas if you'd like to support it :)

    [MOC] Cliffside Villa

    Well, after a long period of not doing much besides the giant Eleitian Central Command model, I present to you my newest model, The Cliffside Villa! The idea came about last Sunday, I was procrastinating on doing stuff I was supposed to, as one does. I decided to expand on the bridge, which I had been building as a standalone concept but couldn't figure out what to do with. I was going to build a fairytale castle on the cliffs that I eventually made behind the bridge, but then it morphed into an entirely different building altogether! The porches, stained glass window, and other elements of the actual pavilion came about next, after I'd laid the groundwork (literally) in the form of the cliffs. I then decided to make it into a combination of my previous Temple of the Moon Maiden MOC and something more open to interpretation. So it could be used, (it sits on a baseplate totaling 32 x 48) as an addition to a modular city! Perhaps a large city park with a pavilion, or some form of garden! From my official description: It's a fine spring day at the Cliffside Villa! The Moon Priest contemplates the deep questions of life on the porch, while his daughter strolls the elegantly appointed walkways of the garden. Two guards stand sentry by the staircase, protecting the inhabitants of the Villa from harm. Explore all the secret nooks and crannies of this large set, from the bell tower to the fish pond to the stained glass window behind which the statue of the Moon Maiden is placed! Set features: - 2568 Pieces - 7 Minifigures: The Moon Priest, Moon Priest's Daughter, Statue of the Moon Maiden, (2) Garden Statues, (2) Guards - Villa features a large stained glass window, metallic Statue of the Moon Maiden on a raised pedestal, and two spacious porches. Upper story features a movable bell! - Elegant bridge crosses a large frog pond filled with lily pads and other aquatic plants. See if you can spot the frogs hiding down there! - Statuary adorns the garden, which is built onto the cliffs with beautiful brick-built birch and cherry trees in full bloom. - Relax on the small bench set below one of the statues! - Features multiple unique pieces, such as the Ornamental gold fish adorning the roof, the Moon Priest's staff, and much more! - Spacious basement level beneath the Villa is perfect for placing hidden treasure or whatever you need for added suspense! But don't just follow that one story for this model, use your imagination to make it your own! This model, on baseplates totaling 32 x 48, can be placed as a standalone model or a complementary model for your modular city! Use it as a pavilion, a city park, or a historical monument in your LEGO town. This MOC is now on LEGO Ideas! If you want to, please help support it, I'd love for it to be one of the lucky few that makes it! The Cliffside Villa: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/4bfda07a-beb1-440e-bcfe-d9742e9d3746 Feel free to leave any comments below, and keep on building, everyone! :)

    [MOC] FOENIX - Energy: Bricks Project

    Hi Everybody, I want to document the way of the FOENIX - Warrior with LEGO Bricks as a MOC. The FOENIX - Warrior is a combat Fighter against injustice. The idea is to build LEGO MOC Vehicles, which the FOENIX - Warrior uses, to fight against injustice. Here is the first Review:
  13. Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, BEHOLD: The Mighty MAZ 7310 Uragan Cargo Truck, in LEGO! This massive set, which I have designed over the course of two years, stands almost ten inches tall, two feet long, and is comprised of almost 7,000 pieces. I sat at my computer for hours a day, sometimes, surfing the web, looking at blueprints, building, deleting, building some more, etc. And now, finally, I can reveal my masterpiece to the world! Bwa-ha-ha! Okay, anyway, I have designed my set for maximum playability, stuffing it full of all sorts of awesome goodies, like opening hood, doors, tailgate, and utility boxes. A removable roof, folding rear seats, free-spinning wheels (including the steering wheel), two Diesel engine options, a generator, compressor, radiator, Master Mechanic's Toolkit, fuel and water drums, 12v batteries, large cargo container, winch, wide-load flags, roof racks, warning beacon, fog lights, two sets of mirrors, lightbars, and more! (Whew! I'm out of breath!) Now, for the real machine: The MAZ 7310 (Minsk Automobile Plant, in Russian), was a large 8-wheeled Missile Transport truck built in the 1950s and 60s. Soon after, people started using them as cargo trucks, tankers, tow trucks, and airport fire trucks. Alright, that's it! Thank you all for looking at my LEGO creation! If you have any questions, comment, I'll do my best to respond ASAP. Happy building and have a great day! Update: Also, some of you may have noticed that the cab of the real vehicle is slightly longer. This is true, I had to shorten the LEGO version out of necessity, as the extra length could’ve affected my MOC’s stability and structural integrity. I suppose I could probably figure it out eventually, but I like it how it is. Thanks for understanding!

    Classic Space Outpost MOC

    Hello everyone. I haven't been out of the dark ages for long - just 3 or so years. Although the Millennium Falcon is what dragged be back into LEGO, my passion has always been with Classic Space. I've spent ages (literally ages) creating this base. I submitted it to LEGO Ideas last year, and then proceeded to making massive changes to it. I have submitted the modified version it to Lego Ideas recently, but would really value a discussion about it with people on this board :)
  15. Hey everyone, here's a new thing I'm making: To be continued (soon!)... EDIT: I just realized there's a subforum for comics, I'll post this there, maybe a mod can remove this one. Sorry about that!

  21. Letters Cliff-Top copter is great for scouting out routes through the jungle or flying short distances across lakes or foothills. His toolbox has everything he needs including a nice selection of sandwiches! Lester has stopped here to enjoy the view from above a valley and perform some routine maintenance.

  23. Adventurer in Gnarled Forest This vignette is a tribute to LEGO Universe. It depicts a chunk of the pirate-themed world Gnarled forest, and a brave rookie who's going on an adventure on his first day of play. Provided that he survives his armourless journey, this fella will be a perfect Venture League recruit! For those that have never heard of LU, it was a massively multiplayer online role playing game (mmorpg) that released in October 2010 and got closed in February 2011. It is without a doubt the most ambitious Lego game ever; it had a multitude of inspiring fantasy worlds, quests, factions, minigames, in-game Lego building spaces, never-seen-before gear and one main goal: defeating the evil Maelstrom. You can check out the , the gameplay trailer and the wiki. Two promotional sets were released: http://brickset.com/...e-LEGO-Universe .On a side note, Thanks for looking, C&C appreciated!

  25. Steve Gaels, adventurer during his free time and working in a Parisian museum, found a very old map on a market in London. When he found out that that map could help him discover the lost treasure of an ancient and extinct tribe, he took the first plane to North America. Hapapou is a Native American who crossed Steve's path after he lost a poker game - and almost his life - just before Steve saved him from outlaws. In exchange, Hapapou promised to help Steve to find the famous treasure. See more pictures in the album here : Steve Gaels and Hapapou's Adventures! Thanks for any suggestions or comments!
