  1. Hi everyone, Me and my brother are planning to build an Adventurers layout based on the Desert and Jungle series. My brother will build the Desert part of the landscape and I will build the Amazon part. I have started with the vehicles, because if I start building the landscape, I do not have the parts for the vehicles. I have built several cars (I think 12). 4 of those cars will be used in a town The left car is a little based based on the Island Racer of the Dino Island. I have created one jeep inspired from a jeep of Indiana Jones. It was the idea to make the jeep 7 studs wide. I have created another car and someone compared it with the car of Donald Duck. The focus was on the mudguards. I have created a ship/boat based on the River Expedition set of the Amazone. The boat has another color scheme than the set, but the structure is almost the same. For more pictures you can see them in the Flickr album. Various Adventurers Creations I still need to take some pictures of other cars. I will do that at the end of the week. Questions and feedback are welcome. Sander
  2. This model was based on set 21132 from the Minecraft theme, which was expanded and modified to be quite a bit larger with surrounding rock features, dangerous rope bridge, a second room and cave for the man-tiger creature. The first half of the map (the one the pirate had) described in the text is this one here while the one half Johnny had is in this link. Early summer, 1926, somewhere in the jungles of a forgotten island off the coast of South America... This is it: the Temple of the Unknown Question. Inside this structure is the other-worldly Guardian which will grant you either fantastic riches, immortality, or infinite knowledge... your choice is one of those three. (If you answer it's question correctly of course!) To reach the secluded temple, Johnny Thunder had to follow a certain map: the only problem was a 17th century pirate had the other half of said map on his ship. To find the temple, he had to find pirate, who had already answered the question and become immortal. Upon finding him, the pirate gave the map (and some advice) to Johnny, who then had it stolen by Lord Sam Sinister. After following Sam to the hidden island and the temple therein, Johnny and company have to think fast to stop Sam from getting to the ancient guardian first! Just your average rickety / unstable rope bridge, placed right before the temple entrance. ...It even collapses on the pull of a Technic pin! Three switches are inside the first room. The two outer ones will unlock the the mechanism to reveal a treasure chest, while the middle one is a dummy lever. With the two outer levers flipped down, the chest is revealed. However, inside this chest is a Pandora's box of sorts: opening it will let out a bright light for 30 seconds or so, as it sucks those unfortunate enough to see the light into the infinitely larger space in the chest and then slams shut on itself. (kinda like the Ark of the Covenant from "Raiders of the Lost Ark") In universe, this box will be taken by Sam Sinister as he thinks it contains the treasure he seeks. Meanwhile the good guys notice the door to a second room and crawl through it as soon as the bad guys leave with the false treasure. This secret second room holds the treasure guardian statue, and a back exit from the temple via a damaged wall. Just be careful not to wake the mighty tiger-man on your way out! In-universe description: The real treasure is inside the second room: after seeing the notched arrows placed by the pirate many years ago on the first room's walls, Johnny finds the small secret door and enters this room to find the guardian and five jewels. (four on walls, one on the staff in guardian's hand) The statue awakens, and asks for a member of the party to come forward to receive the question. Heeding the pirate's advice, he sends Miss Pippin Reed to do the honors, as she alone can answer what no man can answer. (she is no man, after all) After relaying the answer via whisper, her mind is wiped of the question and answer, and is given the choice of immeasurable wealth, eternal life or infinite knowledge. She chooses not to choose, saying the gifts are too large for one person (or group of people) to share. Thus, the adventurers walk back outside and plant dynamite to blow the temple sky-high, thus destroying any chance of anyone, good or evil ever getting the question right again. The man-tiger guards his cave under the temple. Be careful Johnny and company, or you'll be a mid-afternoon snack for this hungry fellow! BUILDER'S NOTES: This is the original LDD build of the temple... quite a change to now! EDIT 8/3/17: Added more recent real life pictures and modified the text!
  3. This model was originally inspired by set 3817 (Flying Dutchman) from the Spongebob Squarepants theme. It has been seriously up-sized in scale, and features three and a 1/2 masts with Technic panel sails and 14 "shooting" cannons. The ship also has a crows nest and a removable rear upper deck for access to the captain's cabin. Background info: In 1699 Captain Henry Walker found a portal to another world whereupon he, his crew and his ship (the Terror) stayed for 22 days. When he returned 225 years in our time had passed in their absence. His sword came from that other world and can rip / close holes in space, letting him escape from battles quickly and find targets easily. As of early 1925, he is searching for a home for his crew where they can pillage passing ships and live in relative peace. Johnny Thunder and Lord Sam Sinister want the sword, and both are desperate to get it. Lord Sam is forging new alliances with greater evils in order to obtain it first, while Johnny is trying to locate the last known owners.... which happens to be Captain Walker and the Terror. Here is the rear of the ship featuring the captain's cabin windows and a trio of lanterns. The ship has a crows nest on the second mast, and 14 working cannons to dispatch enemies to the briny deep. The upper deck features the ship's wheel. This section is removable to get into the captain's cabin. The roof of the cabin is removable, with a table and chair for the Captain to sit at and read maps. Captain Henry Walker (in green) and his crew. Here is the older version of the ship and it's Captain, which was destroyed to make the bigger ship seen above. The LDD file for the newer version of the ship is available here. Comments, questions, and complaints are welcome, but please keep in mind I only occasionally built ships and pirates are not my specialty by any stretch of the imagination. Thanks for viewing!

  5. Sometimes Johnny Thunder and the other adventurers had to fly commercial. Below is my moc of the Wibault 283, an Air France airliner of the 1930s. For trips around the Mediterranean Sea, they may have flown on the Lioré et Olivier LeO H-242, an Air France flying boat.
  6. Adventurers Resupply Depot This main part of this model was inspired by set 60068, Crooks Hideout (City - Swamp Police) along with the crane from set 7596, Trash Compacter (Toy Story 3). Here is the front of the building with it's sliding door, cattle skull and downspout. The removable section (and the crane on top of it) attaches to the building via some Technic pins located near the middle of the picture. The crane itself has a ladder so that a mini-figure can get to the crane control room.Here is the front of the building with it's sliding door, cattle skull and downspout. The removable section attaches to the building via the Technic pins located near the bottom of the picture. The rear and right side of the model features rock-work designed to imply the the dock is hooked into an island. I took the chair out of the crane so you can see the controls. The upper floor is actually more like a half floor with a large balcony over looking the warehouse below. This section of the building houses the radio that lets the Adventurers communicate over vast distances. Also up their is a safe full of important paperwork and ammo for the weapons armory located downstairs. On the lower floor we find the weapons armory and space for boxes, steamer trunks, crates, chests and the occasional barrel, all full of needed supplies and re-found treasures going to and fro across the globe. Steam tramp freighter EASTERN This steam ship has been everywhere, from the Dino Island fiasco, to the shores of the Far East, to the mouth of Amazon River. The Eastern is run by Captain Karloff and his first officer / mechanic, Mac McCloud, with help from their four-legged mascot Madame Blue. I have redone the front end of my tramp steamer to be longer and have a sharper profile, plus it now has a inverted-slope windscreen. The ship's roof and upper deck are removable as always, and I have added an anchor to the front of the ship. The vessel's name, the EASTERN,is printed on 1 x 1 tiles on the side of the bow near the anchor. The rear of the ship features the company flag and the smokestack. Here you can see inside the ship's bridge (upper deck) and captain's quarters. (lower level) Steam tugboat GULF STREAM The ship is mostly used for ferrying supplies to and from the Island Hopper seaplane and by helping the tramp steam-ship Eastern into it's dock, but is capable of trips to the mainland in an emergency. I was inspired by my tramp steamer "Eastern" to make a tugboat to help tow the freighter into port. This rather small coastal vessel features a removable roof to get to the controls, and red / green directional lights. The rear of the ship features the smoke stack for the coal powered engine. The inside of the cabin features, a smoke stack, a smaller steering wheel and fine-tuned motor controls. Seaplane ISLAND HOPPER This model was originally set 31064, (Seaplane Adventures), a 2017 official Lego set from the CREATOR line, with some of the ideas from set 5935 (Island Hopper) from the 2000 ADVENTURERS line thrown in for good measure. I also added an updated figure of the pilot (Ms. Pippin Reed) plus a printed map tile. This twin-engine model is a seaplane, which means it can only land on water. No wheels would make for a very rough landing on dry ground! The model has two opening hatches (one for the pilot and one for loading cargo) and removable roof section for access to the cargo compartment. I got the printed 2 x 4 tiles on the rear of the plane from the 2010 Toy Story 3 line set "Western Train Chase". Auto-Gyro LIGHTNING ROD In reality, this model was modified from set 70913 (Scarecrow Fearful Face-off) from the LEGO Batman Movie line. I added the classic two seat Adventurers cockpit piece which is usually used on land vehicles, plus a new set of vintage 2003 landing skids. This model also comes with red and green navigation lights and two independent propeller blades. The good guys: The team from left to right: -Johnny Thunder Australian adventurer extraordinaire and friend to all those in need. Thunder first met Sam Sinister in 1917 when Sinister was in a field hospital for his hand amputation and Johnny was recovering from slight case of shell shock. They have been against each other ever since then. -Jake Raines This young lad is a American student of Dr. Chalres Kilroy's and expert at 5 spoken languages and 3 more written. Also has a knack for defeating ancient booby traps and disarming modern explosives. Although he looks quite happy, Jake is quite a different person in private: he blames himself for Kilroy's end, as he was with Dr. Kilroy when he died. He was showing his star pupil a mysterious scroll that can separate a mind from it's body when he passed. Jake is convinced that Kilroy succeeded in doing so, and thus his body "died" but his mind may have lived on. -Major Quentin Steele Former British Army officer (and Sinister's former commander, whom Sinister still hates today) This Monster Fighter lost his eye in 1912 due to a fight with a certain Werewolf, whom he later tracked down and defeated. He has signed on to Johnny Thunder's team to fill in for the deceased Dr. Charles Kilroy after his unfortunate accident. -Miss Pippin Reed This former lead reporter for Adventurer Times was reporting on a Dr. Kilroy's 1920 discovery of a copy of the Book of the Dead when she met Johnny Thunder at a dig site near Cairo, Egypt. They have all been good friends ever since. Also, Ms. Reed happens to be an better aviator than Johnny, a fact which she takes great pride in. She also operates the Island Hopper seaplane on most expeditions. -Captain Karloff Owner and operator of the "Eastern" tramp steam ship, this captain has an eye for spotting the historical value in something that looks worthless. He always has a bag of cool items he's collected on beaches, sea-side markets, and ports around the globe on his person or nearby on his ship. -Mac McCloud -Mac may be slightly clumsy, but is a genius when it comes to things of a mechanical nature. He keeps things working for the Adventurers team, such as lowering the steam pressure in the old and worn boilers on the tramp steamer "Eastern" and knocking loose engine parts back into place on the sea plane "Island Hopper". -Madame Blue This dog is the unofficial mascot for the Adventurers team. The forces of evil Characters from right to left: - Lord Sam Sinister Brother of Alexis Sinister, and Lord of Sinister Manor. Sam lost his left hand in World War I while in the British Army. He later replaced it with a polished steel hook which is as cold as his heart. - Alexis Sinister The sister of Lord Sam Sinister is completely evil and slightly unhinged while being crack shot with any weapon. She hates Johnny Thunder to an extreme extent after he refused to join Sinister in his diabolical schemes. Last seen on Dino Island escaping to places unknown while the island was sinking. - Senor Palomar This South American crime lord is an associate of the Sinister family. He helped Sinister try and get the Sun Disk from the Amazon jungle, before losing it to Achoo, the ancient guardian of the disk. After that adventure, Palomar has fallen out of favor with Lord Sam Sinister, but he hopes to be in his good graces again soon. -Mister Graves A mysterious man of whom little is known. He sometimes is a ally of Lord Sinister and company, although are also enemies at times too. He is always seen with a gold lapel pin in the shape of a badge and a little black book of which he is almost constantly writing in. What is he writing? None have dared ask. The national military of the Country of OGEL These smiling faces hide a sad fact: these are the brainwashed soldiers of the very powerful leader of the evil land of Ogel: High Lord Vladimir Ogel. He runs the country with an iron will, and his fearsome armed forces move in frighteningly fast ways for the 1920's. Even their commander (by himself on the right) knows nothing of what he is doing: he is just a cog in a ever quickening machine, hell bent on heading the world to Doomsday. EDIT 11/6/16: The revised Island Hopper seaplane's real life pictures have been added to the first post! Comments, Questions & Complaints are always welcome!
  7. The following models are inspired by these sets: 3829 - Fire Nation ship (battle cruiser), 7620 - Indiana Jones motorcycle chase (motorcycle and sidecar), 7622 - Race for the stolen treasure, (troop truck and commander's car) 7626 - Jungle Cutter (Jungle cutter) and 7683 - Fight on the Flying Wing (tanker truck). This Adventurers-style ship happens to be based off set 3829, Fire Nation Ship from a decade ago. (2006) The ship is 85 studs long, while being made to be 20 bricks in height and 16 studs in width. The ship is modular, with the roof and bridge removable from the war room and each other. The bow, or front, of the ship is tapered to a point much like on my 1920's Tramp Steamship. while the stern (or rear) is pretty flat. The name "Vladek" should go on the exposed studs back of the ship, as that's the vessel's name. The vessel features two funnels and room in the lower level for the war room, complete with a large map table. The upper floor features the wheel and a nautical telegraph. The ship has three turrets with three barrels each that can elevate up and down or rotate left to right. This diesel tanker is a almost a stock set 7638 (Fight on the Flying Wing) model, but with some minor front-end upgrades and better color choices. The vehicle can seat two figures inside under the removable roof. I bought the original set 7626 (Jungle cutter) in Summer 2008. I wanted to make it it in dark gray to match my two trucks but gave up after trying to order the parts from Lego. (I didn't know about Bricklink at that time) Well, now the shoe is on other other foot and here it is, in full grayish glory! The jungle cutter can seat one figure at the controls. The commander's car was inspired by a table-scrap jeep my brother gave to me. I turned the modern jeep into the car seen above with help from parts of set 7622, Race for the Stolen Treasure. This car can fit one figure in the drivers seat. The little motorcycle and sidecar seen here is inspired by set 7620, Indiana Jones Motorcycle chase. These troop trucks are made from 7622, Race for the Stolen Treasure. Since the fabric part is so VERY expensive, I found a solution in the Eurobricks Official sets LDD topic. I took the cover from the trucks built by user ADHO15 and redid some portions to be cheaper (I.E. thinner tires) and better coordinated color-wise. Each of the two vehicles can seat two figures inside under the removable roof sections. The forces of Ogel will stop at nothing to get their prize, and with help from Lord Sam Sinister, they just might win! Here is all my Sinister forces of evil at once. Nothing will stop them on their quest now! (expect maybe Johnny Thunder and company) Please see this topic here for the object of the search and the evil alliance with Lord Sam Sinister!
  8. I came across these German audio dramas and am wondering if anyone can translate them and post the dialogue in English. Thanks everyone and enjoy. LEGO SYSTEM adventure: The hunt for the Pharaoh LEGO Orient Expedition
  9. "Dang the torpedoes! Ramming Speed!" Help the evil Lord Sam Sinister stalk and sink his nemesis Johnny Thunder with the cutting edge submarine OGEL, by firing torpedoes and diving deep to avoid depth charges.* *Sub does not actually dive, fire torpedoes, or float on real water! This sinister vessel comes with two propellers, a rudder, seats inside for the crew plus storage space for weapons, and a periscope for seeing your enemies before they see you! Remember: Run silent and Run deep! Inspired by this bat-sub by Mike Freeman that was in turn a recolored Yellow Submarine model (set 23106). I lengthened the sub, removed all but one periscope, added three more seats and revised the color scheme to be suitably evil and dark for Lord Sam Sinister. The sub features four seats, a lift-away upper half to access the crew and a secret storage section for weapons and Sam's top hat. The side of the conning tower should say "Sinister" in printed 1 x 1 tiles on both long sides. "Down periscope, prepare to fire torpedoes on my mark!" (The tramp steam ship and large targeting scope are fictional, and not included in the submarine's LDD file!) I have made these figures to crew the submarine OGEL. On the far left we have one-eyed Captain William (AKA Bill) Slim and near the center we have two crew members helping Lord Sam Sinister search for the Wishing Staff. The golden object is known as the Wishing Staff, a mysterious relic of unknown origin that allows the wielder one wish per day but by draining their strength greatly, which would eventually kill the wielder if used too often. It was mentioned in the legend of Atlantis as the cause of it's sinking, (Whoever wished for that certainly would have perished in the process of the flood) and is rumored to be located somewhere under the Arctic sea-ice near the North Pole. The relic detector on the far right helps find and track the ethereal, otherworldly energy that powers the staff. It is usually attached to the submarine's bulkhead, but can be detached and hand held if needed. Said LDD file can be downloaded here. The mini-figures are not in LDD due to lack of prints, but the staff and relic detector (minus printed tile) are included, though. This model will be built in real life, but i'm unsure where it fits on my to-build timeline. I will update this page when it does happen with real-world pictures! Comments, Questions, Suggestions, and Complaints are always welcome!
  10. (NOTE: Since this is a Adventurers building for my town and not situated in a jungle, desert or something like that, I thought it would be okay to post it in the town forum. If the mods don't like it here, feel free to move it to the Action and Adventure forum.) This Adventurers styled model was inspired by set 70912, (Arkham Asylum) from the LEGO Batman Movie theme. Whereas that set is only the front facade of the building, this model features two opening rear quarter sections to reveal the interior details. This building is Sam Sinister's house, but I'm not sure yet if I want to build this or not, as it would mean the destruction of the previous Victorian mansion model. The car on the other hand was inspired by this build which was in turn a modified version of set 70911, (Arctic Roller) This model is Sam Sinister's largest ride to date and lacks the spring loaded shooters of the original set. I replaced them with a proper car grille. (This car is already built in real life.) The statue out front of the house is of Lord Sam Sinister, wearing his trademark top hat.On the front of the building right above the door is space for 20 printed letter tiles (ten per row) to spell out the name of the mansion: "Ravenmoore Hall". The rear of the mansion features rows of windows and a stone fireplace flue on the left side, plus a window on the lower left for the small dungeon. The model consists of three sections: the front half, the left quarter and the right quarter. Each section is connected to the next via two hinges, or in the case of the quarter sections in reference to each other, via a small Technic pin with stud. This pin locks the building shut but allows for it to easily open up again. The front half of the building features a drawing room on the left side of the picture, a living room on the opposite side, and the bedroom on the upper floor, which also has access to the balcony above the main entrance. The spaces below the stairs are a wine cellar / kitchen on the right with the large casks, and on the left is the dungeon for any unwitting do-gooder spying on Sam Sinister. The right quarter has the other half of the ground floor dining room and part of the kitchen / wine cellar, a couch in the living room and a wardrobe in the bedroom. The left quarter features the fireplace mantle and flue (the printed number-tiles "1912" go above the fireplace mantle) , plus one half of the dining room on the ground floor. The room with the bars on the windows is the dungeon for unwelcome "guests" of Sam Sinister! The car by itself is about 8 studs wide (with a tiny 1/2 stud bit of overhang on each side due to the front wheel wells) and 28 studs long in total. As a side note, the headlights are not clipped in the same way as the original set had, and are instead sandwiched in place with 1 x 6 plates sand headlight bricks. The rear of the car features a license plate for Lord Sam Sinister and dual exhaust. Two figures (sans tall hats) can fit side-by-side in the car, and their is space in the opening trunk for a briefcase. (The gray round thing on the trunk is supposed to house a spare tire, but it doesn't.... it's really just for looks.) The LDD file for both the car and the house is in this link here. Comments, Questions and complaints are always welcome!
  11. (I have put the older pictures of the previous model in the spoiler tag below. This way, you can compare the models of the building and car.) This Adventurers model was inspired by my original Johnny Thunder office building from 2015. I modified it into a corner building with a tower like in set 10255 (assembly square).The building is modular, and comes apart into three sections: roof, second floor and main floor. This model is my actually second tallest creation, as it's shorter than Sam Sinister's Mansion and only slightly taller than my Saloon. Here you can see Johnny Thunder and his car (the aptly-named "Treasure Raider") outside the building. The rear of the building is blank, as it it would be sandwiched next to other buildings. The vent on the roof leads from the stove on the second floor. The lower floor features a cabinet from set 10228 (Haunted House) and a 1920's style ivory phone borrowed from set 10218 (Pet Shop). A hat rack (also from the Pet Shop set) is next to the wall opposite the desk. The far wall features some treasure from Johnny and his friends many adventurers, such as the Golden Shield from "Orient Expedition", a T-Rex tooth from "Dino Island", a trident from the "Quest for Atlantis", the replica hammer of the Thunder god from the "Age of Ragnarok", the helmet of a dwarf from "Middle Zealand", and many others artifacts. The upper floor features Johnny's bed, a stove, table with root beer bottle, and a radio / record player. This model was inspired by the tan car in set 7628 (Shanghai Chase) from the Indiana Jones them. The car now features a hard-top roof instead of the original fabric one, with one section of the roof being removable to allow for two figures to be seated inside plus a rear-mounted spare tire. The model also has a rear-mounted spare tire, located right next to the taillights. The inside of the car seats two figures side-by-side. 3/4/17 Major update complete: I added new pictures of the updated house and car, plus i put the older models into a spoiler tag for you to compare between old and new. Comments, Questions and Complaints are always welcome!
  12. (Note to the MODs: This is in the town forum because it's a car. It could have gone in either the Adventurer forum, the Licensed forum, or here in the Town section. I chose Town because it could be easily modified by taking the figure out and making it into a regular 1920's car again.) The car on the other hand was inspired by this build which was in turn a modified version of set 70911, (Arctic Roller) This model is Sam Sinister's largest ride to date and lacks the spring loaded shooters of the original set. I replaced them with a proper car grille. The car by itself is about 8 studs wide (with a tiny 1/2 stud bit of overhang on each side due to the front wheel wells) and 28 studs long in total. As a side note, the headlights are not clipped in the same way as the original set had, and are instead sandwiched in place with 1 x 6 plates sand headlight bricks. The rear of the car features a license plate for Lord Sam Sinister and dual exhaust. The gray round thing on the trunk is supposed to house a spare tire, but it doesn't.... it's really just for looks. Two figures (sans tall hats) can fit side-by-side in the car, and their is space in the opening trunk for a briefcase. The teeny tiny mini-figure out by the front door of the house is Lord Sam Sinister... it just gives you an idea how massive the house and car really are! (the house can be found here) As usual, comments, questions and complaints are always welcome!
  13. The house was originally made in 2007 as a digital construct by Brickshelf user "Widdi" and was found by me at this address back in late 2014. I then changed the color, added a garage and a back half to the building, and eventually put in a chimney styled after the one in set 10228. The car on the other hand was inspired by this build which was in turn a modified version of set 70911, (Arctic Roller) This model is Sam Sinister's largest ride to date and lacks the spring loaded shooters of the original set. I replaced them with a proper car grille. The garage to the side of the building is unusual, as Victorian houses never had them. Thus, I've decided it was a later addition in 1918 by Sam Sinister when he inherited the house from his father, just after Sam returned from World War I. The rear of the building features a large amount of windows, while the far side has a stone chimney flue. The second floor features the master bedroom / writing room with a small balcony on the right hand side. The furniture on the upper floor features a bed, a desk, table with lamp, a cabinet, and a grandfather clock. The ground floor is little crowded with the kitchen and living room appliances / furniture. The items seen here includes a stove, wine cabinet, table with two chairs, phonograph, couch, curio cabinet, and pool table. The sign above the fireplace is supposed to read "1912" for that is the year the house was built. The building is modular, so the roof top, second floor, and ground floor all come apart from each other. The car by itself is about 8 studs wide (with a tiny 1/2 stud bit of overhang on each side due to the front wheel wells) and 28 studs long in total. As a side note, the headlights are not clipped in the same way as the original set had, and are instead sandwiched in place with 1 x 6 plates sand headlight bricks. The rear of the car features a license plate for Lord Sam Sinister and dual exhaust. The gray round thing on the trunk is supposed to house a spare tire, but it doesn't.... it's really just for looks. Two figures (sans tall hats) can fit side-by-side in the car, and their is space in the opening trunk for a briefcase. The teeny tiny mini-figure out by the front door of the house is Lord Sam Sinister... it just gives you an idea how massive the house and car really are! Fictional information on the house's history: Built in 1912, Sinister Manor is one of the last houses built in the Victorian Style of architecture in Ironwood county. It was built by Lord Gregory Sinister for his family, and features one thing not usually seen on Victorian houses: a automobile garage (it was added later on in 1918 when Sam Sinister returned from the Great War.) The house was left to Gregory's family, (his son Sam Sinister & his sister Alexis Sinister) upon the elder Sinister's death of a stroke in 1913. Sam Sinister went on to serve in the British army in World War I, losing his left hand in the conflict and replacing it with a iron hook. When he returned from the conflict Sam set about continuing his fathers tradition: collecting treasures and precious artifacts, through legal and illegal means. The collection was stored in the Attic of the sinister Mansion until it became too large and was moved to a more secure (and secret) location. Thoughts? Complaints? Questions? Feel free to post them! Main Post Edited 2/14/17: added new pictures of the building and the new car. LDD file for both car and house available here.
  14. Hey Guys! It's been a long time that I haven't posted any MOC on EB! Here is one of my creations I finally took time to take photos! It is my "Indiana Jones temple escape" where Sir Henry Jones Jr. tries not to be flattened by a big rock ball! It is motorized so the rock rolls after Indy! Please, do not hesitate to make any suggestion or comment! They are welcome! Hope you will enjoy!

  15. This model was originally set 31064, (Seaplane Adventures), a 2017 official Lego set from the CREATOR line, with some of the ideas from set 5935 (Island Hopper) from the 2000 ADVENTURERS line thrown in for good measure. I also added an updated figure of the pilot (Ms. Pippin Reed) plus a printed map tile. This twin-engine model is a seaplane, which means it can only land on water. No wheels would make for a very rough landing on dry ground! The model has two opening hatches (one for the pilot and one for loading cargo) and removable roof section for access to the cargo compartment. I got the printed 2 x 4 tiles on the rear of the plane from the 2010 Toy Story 3 line set "Western Train Chase". As the former lead reporter for Adventurer Times, Miss Pippin Reed was reporting on a Dr. Kilroy's 1920 discovery of a copy of the Book of the Dead when she met Johnny Thunder at a dig site near Cairo, Egypt. They have been good friends ever since, even though Ms. Reed happens to be an better aviator than Johnny. She currently is employed by Harry Cane as one of his best pilots. She usually files the Island Hopper on cargo runs into Europe and Africa, but has known to take the plane as far away as the Pacific Ocean / Dino Island and the Far East. In this picture we see the Adventurers' home base / resupply depot with the seaplane called the "Island Hopper", the large tramp steamer "Eastern", and the smaller tugboat "Gulf Stream". This photo is just for fun (read: not included in the LDD file), and features all the good-guy Adventurers vehicles and their home base, along with the seaplane called the "Island Hopper", the large tramp steamer "Eastern", the smaller tugboat "Gulf Stream" and Johnny Thunder's car "Treasure Raider". Any comments, Questions, Suggestions, and Complaints are always welcome. NOTE: The supply base and the other vehicles have thier own thread here or, if you are more into the bad guys, check out the Sinister battle-cruiser here and his secret submarine here.
  16. We've got some amazing Adventurers MOC's recently here. So, I have a couple of questions 1. Which subtheme was the best one? (poll) and why? 2. If Adventurers gets a fifth subtheme, what would you like to see?
  17. Fictional background info: Built in 1919 by the evil country of OGEL, the Vladek is a diesel powered battle cruiser originally intended for use by finding enemy ships and sinking them with it's nine guns on three turrets. This ship was finished too late to serve in World War I, and so sat until 1922, when Lord Sam Sinister manged to convince the mysterious leader of OGEL to let him borrow it to scourer the globe looking for valuable and dangerous artifacts of immense power. The Vladek has been Sam's base of operations in several campaigns such the Orient Expedition and Dino Island, and he has the full might of the OGEL military behind him as his personal army. Only time will tell if that is enough to stop Johnny Thunder and his pals! In the Real world: This Adventurers-style ship happens to be based off set 3829, Fire Nation Ship from a decade ago. (2006) The ship is 85 studs long, while being made to be 20 bricks in height and 16 studs in width. The ship is modular, with the roof and bridge removable from the war room and each other. The menacing skull on the bow of the battlercruiser signifies it's evil captain and crew! The bow, or front, of the ship is tapered to a point much like on my 1920's Tramp Steamship. while the stern (or rear) is pretty flat. The name "Vladek" should go on the exposed studs back of the ship, as that's the vessel's name. (I haven't got those letters yet!) The vessel features two funnels and room in the lower level for the war room, complete with a large map table. The upper floor features the wheel and a nautical telegraph. The ship has three turrets with three barrels each that can elevate up and down or rotate left to right. The crew of the battle-cruiser Vladek is on the right, while Captain Hawkins is on the left. As usual, comments, questions, or complaints are always welcome! EDIT: This vessel's was constructed just today, 1/4/17, and the page has been restructured once more. I hope you like it!
  18. This is a seaplane based off the 2008 Indiana Jones set 7628 (Peril In Peru), along with inspiration from 2000 Adventurers set 5935 (Island Hopper) thrown in for good measure. The idea behind this model is to depict a updated version of one of my favorite classic LEGO themes: "Adventurers". Anyway, this model has a story: Built in 1920 by Seaplane Solutions Incorporated for Aero-Sea Cargo Limited, a trans-Mediterranean shipping service headquartered in Alexandria, Egypt. Eventually, the main pilot (Harry Cane) realized what his usual cargo was: stolen Ancient Egyptian artifacts and sometimes even whole mummies in shipping crates. Knowing the Authorities would do nothing unless proof was given as to what was happening, Harry decided to fly his plane straight to the police with a stolen mummy inside. Needless to say, the police took the plane and the mummy and shut down Aero-Sea Cargo Limited. They tried to arrest the hook-handed owner, but he had fled the country. For his bravery, Harry got to keep the plane, and made a new friend: Johnny Thunder who was near the police station at the time of the arrests, looking for clues to a certain Ruby. Johnny went up to Mr. Cane and congratulated him, whereupon they became fast friends. The plane was not used in the search for the Re-Gou Ruby, but was used in the Dino Island fiasco in 1923, when it was piloted by journalist & accomplished pilot Pippin Reed, who latter went to work with Harry Cane and the Adventurers. The plane has a interior that seats five people: 1 pilot and six passengers, and the roof / wings / cockpit can come off to seat mini-figures inside, as seen above. Statistics: Ship Name: Island Hopper Engine Type: propeller Vehicle Configuration: cargo plane Vehicle type: Twin-engine prop seaplane Designer: Seaplane Solutions Incorporated Build Date: 1920 Builder: Aero-Sea Cargo Limited Current Owner: Harry Cane / Pippin Reed Length: 50 studs Width: 54 studs (wing tip to tip) Height: 9 2/3 bricks (top of tail) Since the last time I uploaded this model, I have added a new 1-piece wing due to fragility issues with the real life model, plus a lengthened body of the airplane by about four studs more and a new cockpit. The tail is supposed to feature two of this printed part: printed tail part Miss Pippin Reed (pilot) This former lead reporter for Adventurer Times was reporting on a Dr. Kilroy's 1920 discovery of a copy of the Book of the Dead when she met Johnny Thunder at a dig site near Cairo, Egypt. They have been good friends ever since, even though Ms. Reed happens to be an better aviator than Johnny. She currently is employed by Harry Cane as one of his best pilots. She usually files the Island Hopper on cargo runs in the Europe and Africa, but has known to take the plane as far away as the Pacific Ocean / Dino Island. Builders Notes: The 2008 Indiana Jones set features a DC-3 airplane and was set in 1957 (The year of Crystal Skull's plot). The colors were wrong for the Island Hopper, not to mention the design was wrong for a seaplane and the date was 30+ years after Johnny Thunder was around. (Here is the Brick-Link link for this set: http://www.bricklink...em.asp?S=7628-1 ) This is the original Island Hopper from 2000. (Brick-Link: http://www.bricklink...em.asp?S=5935-1 ) It was sorely out of date, and used "illegal" techniques for it's engine design. Seeing as both planes were out of date and had their fair share of bad points, I combined the two bad planes into one good one. I added a new tail to the DC-3, and redid the roof / windows. I then added a higher wing mount to it and put floats on the wings. The cockpit had to go, and seeing on better option I used the CITY helicopter part seen here: This part solves the nose problem while keeping a nice vintage profile. (some thing the other two planes lacked!) and so, I leave you with this parting flyby of the real thing: Not only is this proof that I do "swoosh" my Lego planes / spaceships, but it makes an awesome Adventurers-themed desktop background! EDIT 10/24/16: In one of my bins lies these parts for my Island Hopper seaplane from Adventurers. The parts for this model that I don't have were ordered along with my dark green train parts, and should be here soon. EDIT 10/30/16: Added real life pictures of the completed model. I hope you all like them! Comments, Questions, and Complaints welcome!
  19. Down periscope, prepare to fire torpedoes on my mark! Help the evil Lord Sam Sinister stalk and sink his nemesis Johnny Thunder with the cutting edge submarine S-13, nicknamed the Killer Whale, by firing torpedoes and diving deep to avoid depth charges.* *Sub does not actually dive, fire torpedoes, or float on real water. This sinister vessel comes with two propellers, a rudder, a ladder from deck level to the conning tower, and a periscope for seeing your enemies before they see you! Remember: Run silent and Run deep! The ship comes with detailed interior and removable roof. This is so you can plan Sam's next devious attack on Johnny in the war room, pilot the sub in the control area, or try to coax some extra speed out of the motor in the engine room. You can even watch the sea creatures go by with the massive windows in the side of the sub! NOTES & LDD FILES: Here is the LDD file for version 1 (above): http://www.moc-pages...1466873891m.lxf It is based heavily on set 4888 and the sub Nautilus from the 1950's movie version of "20,000 Leagues under the Sea". This is version 3 of the sub's LDD file: submarine version two LDD file This model (v3) was more inspired by the modern subs from 1990's film "The Hunt for Red October" than the Nautilus, though it still retains the large porthole. It features an enlarged conning tower and revised engine room. I also moved the tower four studs closer to the front of the sub. Both models are able to be built in real life. Any thoughts, comments, and / or questions are always welcome!
  20. 5935 Island Hopper Redux

    Hello everyone! I'm here on the Action and Adventure forum today to share with you my latest creation: 5935 Island Hopper Redux! 5935 Island Hopper redux by Joshua, on Flickr 5935 Island Hopper redux flying by Joshua, on Flickr 5935 Island Hopper redux wheels down by Joshua, on Flickr 5935 Island Hopper redux interior by Joshua, on Flickr ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 5935 Island Hopper was one of my favorite sets TLG ever put out. I have many happy memories from my youth of long hours spent lost in the world of Johnny Thunder, and this set was always my favorite to play with, and somehow always made it into every adventure, no matter what environment it was taking place in. Sadly I no longer have the original set still complete, but recently I came across the instructions, and decided it was time for this to be reborn with new parts and techniques. All the play features from the original set are there, such as folding wings, and removable roof, but I also added a few of my own, namely retractable landing gear, opening rear hatch,full interior, and working vertical and horizontal stabilizers. Worth noting is that many of the pieces from the original set were used in the new model. Hope you all like it! Long Live Johnny Thunder! Cheers, Joshua
  21. Hello ! I am not really active in this part of the forum but I made a little build trying to illustrate what could be some new adventurers little set in our days. I tryed to think at this build like a possible set TLG could release in order to launch a new Adventurer/Egypt theme ! (my favourite one) So enjoy : Of course, Comments and Criticisms are welcome !
  22. Hello all- long time peruser but first time poster! This is also the first MOC I've done since my dark ages. Currently I live in China, so most of my sets are back in the US, but over the summer I brought some back with me because I had the following idea. I love Chinese culture, architecture, and history! When I found out they had done an adventurers orient series a few years ago, I found some pretty sweet deals and was able to pick up the main orient sets. While I loved the 7416 Emperor's Ship, I thought it was a bit lame not to include the emperor himself, and that it was more like a smuggler's ship than an emperor's ship. I combined a few of those sets along with some others (although unfortunately left my Emperor Chang Wu back home), and came up with the ship below. Let me know your thoughts, and suggestions/etc.! Thanks Here are some more pictures I took: https://www.flickr.c...4194@N05/6Mv27g
  23. Hi, This is my latest creation, Johnny Thunder's Heli-plane! i wanted to make something a bit different that can eventually fit into my moc city. it carries all the equipment that treasure hunters might need, and even fits in his trusty motorbike! inside there's also enough room for his trusty pilot, Harry Cane, Dr. Lightning and his loyal Alaskan Malamute, Indy! my favorite part is the removable wing and tail/roof section. it really adds to the play ability, i also made a supply truck to restock on equipment, but this is mostly modified from the indiana jones set. More pictures can be found on my page: https://www.flickr.c...th/24114321389/ Hope you enjoy! comments and feedback much appreciated:) Toni Lego Adventurers heliplane moc by toni lynam, on Flickr Lego Adventurers heliplane moc by toni lynam, on Flickr Lego Adventurers heliplane moc by toni lynam, on Flickr Lego Adventurers heliplane moc by toni lynam, on Flickr
  24. NOTE TO THE MODS: I know I have a thread for this already, but I thought it would be better to start fresh than try and refresh everything on the first post. Plus, the title was no longer the right one, as I cast off all the Ninjago parts of the story. Sorry, but I had to make a new start.... (Also, please note I am using the camera on my phone for these pictures. They might be slightly blurry in some cases.) Real background: I built this ship from two Adventurers sets: I used the boat from set 5975 (T-Rex Transport) and modified slightly to resemble set 5976 (River Expedition). The ship features a boiler, steering wheel and a bigger smoke-stack. I have added a complete bridge with removable roof instead of the open topped one on my previous version of the ship. Also, I have recently added a mast to the front of the ship, and changed the name to the Great West. Fictional background: Built in 1917 for Throwing Star Freight Lines as an ocean going tramp steam ship, the Great West was constructed in a far off land not shown on most globe or maps. The ship is captained by Edward Karloff, who is also the owner of Throwing Star Freight Lines and good friend of Johnny Thunder. In fact, Johnny uses the Great West to run supply routes for his Adventurers quests all over the globe. When not on duty, the ship and Captain Karloff can be found at the Adventurers resupply depot, located on a tropical island in the Atlantic Ocean halfway between where Dino Island is and the mouth of the Amazon river. The top floor of the ship is the bridge - this area contains a nautical telegraph (to control speed) and the wheel. (to control direction) The bottom floor features a table covered with ancient papers and sea charts, plus a glass jar with a some thing strange inside. ( it's actually this OGEL ice orb from Alpha Team: http://alpha.brickli...3626bpb0091#T=C ) Some of these old papers contain places not seen on any globe or any modern map. Also that red thing is a dynamite plunger... just in case! Some of the recent cargo of the Great West includes: - silver ingots and coins - silver and gold nuggets - Dynamite (the accompanying plunger is in the Captain's Quarters / map room) - Ancient spears - the Maltese Chicken - Two halves of a long-lost pirate's treasure map - Money - large rough-cut ruby Captain Edward Karloff and his dog, Madame Blue. LDD file (boat only, no cargo or captain): http://www.mocpages....1451495112m.lxf This concludes the tour of the ship. Comments, Questions, Suggestions for additions or modifications and Complaints are always welcome. Keep on Adventuring!
  25. This thread is to put for anybody to put their Adventurers, / Pharaoh's Quest / Monster Fighters figures, and generic people of the same time-frame. (1920's / 1930's) They can put any figures of that era, or from books or movies set in that era. The Great Gatsby meets Johnny Thunder at a cafe or maybe Sam Sinister wants to steal the Maltese Falcon, but Beloq (from Indiana Jones) gets it first. Either way, the era between the World Wars works for me. Here is the first bit, which combines all three themes under one banner. (please remember that my cell phone photography skills are near zero, so most of these are off in one way or another.) In the early 1920's, inquisitive minds and hardy souls, both good and evil, scour the corners of the Earth looking for lost civilizations and vast treasures. Some search for their own personal gain, or limitless power, others search for knowledge in a quest to preserve the past for the future. Good or evil they are known as... THE ADVENTURERS From left to right: THE BAD GUYS Senor Palomar Old friend of the Sinister family. He runs a vast South American artifact smuggling ring, as Sam Sinister's second in command. Alexis Sinister Sister of Lord Sam Sinister, evil, loves traps and weapons, secretly wants to turn Johnny Thunder evil. Lord Sam Sinister Arch enemy of Johnny Thunder, thief of lost treasures and great fortunes, plus is a mastermind of evil THE GOOD GUYS Johnny Thunder Australian explorer with a all- around can-do attitude. Always looking forward towards the future, but an eye on preserving the past. Miss Pippin Reed Former journalist, expert pilot, and a great friend to all in need. Jake Raines Hotheaded former pupil of Johnny Thunder's late friend, Dr. Charles Kilroy. Student of almost all sciences, but a firm believer in the supernatural. Major Quentin Steele English army officer turned monster hunter, tracker extraordinaire, and is a crack shot with any gun. CITIZENS OF THE 1920's These figures are not named, and so are located here. Their is one other figure not under any classification, and that is the signature figure of me as a railroad engineer. I am not in the group because I am named, but am not with the Adventurers because I am not in the story-lines of any of the themes listed above. First Imperial Bank employees Left to right: bank manager - teller number 1 - teller number 2 Law Enforcement & City of Ironwood officials Left to right: Sheriff - Mayor - Silver mine owner - town doctor Railroad Workers Left to right: local railroad official - station master - passenger train conductor - steam locomotive fireman Shop Keepers & etc. Left to right: General Store owner - post office master - bar maid OTHER PEOPLE This is where armies and named non - Adventurers go. Army of the Crossed Sabers (The evil country of Ogel's land forces, known as the Army of the Crossed Sabers, which is temporarily commanded by Lord Sam Sinister on board the Battle-cruiser HMS Vladeck.) Left to right: Captain of the HMS Vladeck, Ogel soldiers (x6) Named non-Adventurers Left to right: Madame Blue (the dog), Captain Karloff (owner of Madame Blue and the tramp steamer "Great West"), Murdoch (engineer for Brick Railway Systems on their steam trains) END (SO FAR) I hope everyone liked my list, and feel free to add your own too. Happy Adventuring / Questing / Fighting Monsters!
