  1. Dwarves' Airship

    Hello everyone, I used Old Brown Boat Hull to make this Airship, Is Steampunk-style boat, because Old Boat Hull specifications are small, so the design is to give Dwarves XD Thank you for watching. My flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/pirate_cat/albums
  2. The Adventure Galleon

    This is a MOC that I designed for Lego Ideas, inspired by the 2009 wave of Lego Pirates sets. The major inspirations behind this set were the new Balloon pieces that were introduced last year in 2016, as well as the fun compact ship that came in the Lego Spongebob set 3817-1, The Flying Dutchman, Circa 2012. However, I did not get past the first 100 votes that I needed to advance to the 6 month grace period to advance. This has not discouraged me from refining the idea for the set, and I plan to re-submit a newer version of the model soon, hopefully with new play features. Since I've last submitted this MOC, it has gone through several major revisions, which I am very eager to share with you in the following weeks.
  3. Hello! :) There'll be a lot of reviews of new Elves sets soon, but I think it can't be too many of them anyway :) So I decided to make one again! I've build beautiful Aira's Airship of Elves 2017 and here's some pictures of it. Hope you like it too :) Overall impression reminds me split of two amazing sets from first wave - Naida's Adventure Ship and Pegasus Sleigh with all that fancy-styled details and pleasing color scheme. Ant that's great! Play features became less peaceful: while only weapon of team of Andventure ship was frying pan, heroes of new story have boomerang and disc shooter, and little goblin with flying backpack looks more menaceful than sea shell or little dragon's house :) Most intriguing part of the main building for me was wing mechanism. It have a lot intresting joints, even gear mechanism that keeps wings in raised position. Movement is enough tight, it's not very light and smooth, and needs a little effort. But anyway I really liked that it adds technic building expirience. Intresting parts: lots of gold makes happy my inner magpie! :D Book with air symbol is my favorite item here! I like Aira most of all characters, so I glad that here's new stuff with her symbols. Boomerang is also nice weapon for an intelligent character. Map is classical feature of this series. All theese pretty items may be storaged in pantry of the airship! Also there's box with ammo for disc-shooter. Goblin's fliyng box. I can't find out how this bolts shoot :( When I press them as shown in istruction, they just falls down, may be I make it wrong way. But I don't mind it, because I like boxes :) The goblin himself looks like an desperate person that can bring a lot of troubles for elves! :) And here's comparisions :) New amulet also fits good to regular lego minifig. There were two amulets on one mould, like golden keys from other sets. This old and respectable guy is honored to show it to you! :) (it's only minifig that saved from my former collection) Comparision with Naida's Adventure Ship from 2015. Three Airas! And last picture - Aira's airfleet, of Elvendale Airlines inc. =) Also here's my jetbike moc :) Thanks for watching! I hope this will attract more intrest for this beautilul series!
  4. Following my previous NINJAGO review, let’s take a look at another interesting set from The Hands of Time season. Let’s dive right in my 5th Reviewers Academy review, set number 70623 - Destiny’s Shadow. Overview Name: 70623 - Destiny’s Shadow Theme: LEGO System / NINJAGO / The Hands of Time Year: 2017 (1H) Pieces: 346 Minifigures: 3 Price: USD 29.99 / EUR 29.99 / GBP 24.99 / SGD 39.99 / MYR 129.90 Resources: Brickset and Bricklink Introduction If you have been reading my post in the Ninjago topics, I have been sharing that I prefer playsets over vehicles. Occasionally I do make exceptions such as this. I was not supposed to buy this one but I ended up buying this set anyway. Why? Read more to find out. When I first heard the name “Destiny’s Shadow” I can’t help but relate the set to the Destiny’s Bounty. First thing that came to my mind is that it must be smaller because it’s only a shadow. Apparently all these are true because if you look at the front box art you’ll think it is just a scaled down Destiny’s Bounty without sails. At the back of the box, we see Lloyd and Cole teaming up to fight Vermin, the only Vermillion soldier included in the set. What’s striking about this set is the inclusion of 2 olive green canoes that appears detachable from the main boat. I’ll talk more about that later on. At the side we see the common stuff like the minifigures included -- Vermin (villain), Lloyd, Cole and a frog. There is also the “money shot” and an small logo of LEGO Life promoting the new app for kids. Let's do the unboxing! Inside the box, there are 3 numbered plastic bags, 2 plastic cutout sheets, 2 olive green canoes, 2 instruction booklets and... *drum roll*... no sticker sheets. Yes, what you see is not a mistake… there are indeed an extra plastic sheet of the cut-out wings. Build Here is the preview of the booklet and how each bag contributes to the build. Bag #1 contents We’re off to a great start because we are not even on the 5th step of building and we already have an interesting part such as this 2x2 wedge in bluish dark grey. Few steps later we complete the hoverboard used by Vermin. Of all the Ninjago hoverboards I’ve seen and built I think this is one of the better ones. The details provided by the iron ingots and copper Uruk-hai swords make this hoverboard very sharp and edgy. The remaining steps make the hull of the boat if you can even call it a boat. Ok, it is a flying boat or an airship just like the Destiny's Bounty. We also get Cole with the Pause Time Blade. I’ll spend more time on minifigures later. Notice that here are angled plates and ball joints used to construct the stern. Right from the first bag we are greeted with seemingly simple but not-so-basic building techniques. Bag #2 content In bag #2, the wheel holder is used with the Exo-force robot arms to achieve the angle needed for the bow of the airship. I have not built all LEGO sets ever created (I don’t think anybody has) but this is the first time I see robot arms and wheel holder combination to attach something in an angle. The warm gold [BL: pearl gold] hoses are held by 4 pairs of clips in an odd way that the hoses form a shape of a bowling pin or sexy soda bottle. On the sides of the airship, the titanium metallic [BL: pearl dark grey] elbow pieces, which others affectionately called macaroni pieces, give the airship a very industrial look and steam-punky vibe. Moving on, hold your breathe because we are opening the last bag... Bag #3 contents Bag #3 adds the wing frames. The wings are attached using the ball joints to the stern. You’ll find out later why it has to be connect with ball joints. You can see the back of the wing frame here. It seems that the wings are smaller than what I saw in the TV series. Also, due to how the plastic wings are fastened to the wing frames with those holes, the already curvy wings curves even more than it should be. The build is already complete at this point. What you see above is the boat mode of Destiny’s Shadow with its wings retracted. Attach the 2 olive green canoes on the sides, expand the wings and you get the flight mode of Destiny’s Shadow. The 2 reddish brown oars for the canoes are attached in front for easy access. I prefer this mode but I really wish those puny little wings on the side are slightly bigger/wider, sharper and less floppy. Remember the ball joints? The wings can be expanded by pushing the yellowish orange protruding part below the engines. Both wings will extend as both wings are attached to the central mechanism with ball joints. Consequently, when you push one wing inwards the other one also retracts back. Notice the solar-panel looking tiles on top of the black wedges? Those are all printed. Remember, there are no stickers in this set. It does look like a proper airship when viewed by the side profile but I love the back view even more. Just look at the big pearl gold jet engine with purple accent. I like big boats and I cannot lie; You other brothers can't deny! Frankly, I was expecting this set to be smaller as the pictures online and even the box art does not give justice to the product in real-life. I find that almost all angles are camera-friendly. It is narrow and slender, and the pearl gold pneumatic hose creates a very unusual curve that makes this airship “sexy” for the lack of a better term. The build is very enjoyable but not free of criticism. Apart from the wings, the other gripe I have on this set is that there isn’t enough firm parts to hold this airship to swoosh it around with one hand. The reddish brown 2x4 tile at the stern doesn’t help either because the moment your hands get a little bit oily those tiles get very slippery. So, you need to pay extra attention to support the weight of the airship below or you’ll find this crashing on the floor. One more thing before I proceed to the next segment -- the official description mentioned about “Lloyd’s compass”. I’m 100% sure there is no compass accessory in this set. I double confirmed it. Maybe when they mentioned compass, they meant the green frog pointing at the north direction? Hey Lloyd I think your compass is a little bit cranky. I think you need to feed it first. Here are the extra parts not used on the build after following the instruction booklet thoroughly. Parts This set is also not shy of new parts. For me, the stand-out parts here are the 2 olive green canoes and macaroni elbow pieces. I won’t go through all the new parts but here are my remarks for the notable ones. The 2 olive green canoes are outstanding. Olive green is not my favourite colour in LEGO colour palette but it is starting to climb up the list of my desired part colour. I think this will be a great fit with the upcoming City sub-theme Jungle if you wish to add some river scene. Fun fact: Don't you know that the first ever LEGO canoe was released in the Islanders sub-theme of Pirates I back in the mid-90'. It came in classic (bright) red colour. The macaroni piece looks great in pearl dark grey and you get 4 of them! If you need to make solar panels the 1x2 trans-black printed tile is very handy. The pearl gold hose which is 16 studs-long is also found in this set for the first time. Having new gold part is always welcome. The new Vermillion sword with the jagged blade is great to have for sci-fi weaponry. There is also 1 stray medium nougat [BL: medium dark flesh] 2x2 round plate that ended up in this set. At the time of writing this review, only this set and 70904 Clayface Splat Attack uses this part. Minifigures Just like what I mentioned in my review of 70621 The Vermillion Attack, the level of detail in this wave of Ninjago minifigures are top-notch. Both Cole and Lloyd wear tabi-boots as the printing extends all the way to the tip of minifigures legs. The tabi boots are more obvious on Cole since he has a dark bluish grey legs. Cole has a black shoulder pads armour but Lloyd does not have it. I am sure the only reason why Lloyd does not have that armour is to differentiate the Lloyd minifigure in the Iron Doom set. Fortunately the black shoulder pads are common enough that it is easy enough to ‘upgrade’ the minifigure with the additional armour. Remove the armours and headgears and you’ll see that Lloyd continues to be the odd one out because he does not have an alternate face print. Conclusion Hold tight Cole, we’ll do a barrel roll! I think that the design of this airship is brilliant even though it appears odd at first sight. As I build it, I find some creative and uncommon building techniques such as the use of wheel holder plates to put angled parts at the bow, as well as the ball joint mechanism used in the wings expansion at the stern. The major factor that attracted me to this set is the price. Even though I initially wanted to skip this, the set is right there at the sweet spot that it does not makes sense for me to give it a pass. It is very easy to dismiss because it looks awkward. I don't know if you can consider this airship steam-punk or diesel-punk. If you ignore the canoes, this is basically a Ninjago version of Star Wars Desert Skiff which is not something you can brag about. Upon building it -- I start to appreciate the design aesthetics more. Piece by piece it became more attractive. It’s like the girl you find awkward and nerdy in school and once you learn how beautiful she is beyond the surface, you suddenly realize how great she is inside out. Finally, if It helps in your buying decision, it's good to know that this airship enjoyed a respectable amount of time in The Hands of Time season. TWO Olive green canoes FTW! Review summary Playability: 8/10 - Fun is written all over it but needs extra care while swooshing Design / Building Experience: 8/10 - Eccentric design that translates to enjoyable build Minifigures: 9/10 - Great minifigures; wish that Lloyd has an armour and alternate face print too Price / Value for money: 9/10 - In terms of parts per piece this is the 2nd best value of all the Hands of Time sets. Also, this is like a 3-in-1 boat set because you get 2 olive green canoes! Overall: 8.5/10 - An excellent attempt to offer a down-sized airship with interesting parts to boot; however, I wish that the wings are more rigid and slightly bigger too. Thanks for reading. As always, wubba lubba dub dub.
  5. Hello. My son absolutely loved putting this airship together (quiet time for the parents! loved it). Please check out my video of his review of Lego Ninjago's Ronin R.E.X. Thanks and happy holidays! - K

  7. [MOC] Nautopolis Loading Dock

    Goodday people of Eurobricks, My very first moc posted on Eurobricks, it feels like a brand new day for me I actually built the Mech on the platform a few years back, but never got to properly photgraph it. The setting of this Mech is in my own fictional universe with a complex backstory, which I have to write down properly and add to another of my Steampunk Moc's probably. I hope you guys like it Nautopolis Loading Dock by Bram, on Flickr Nautopolis Loading Dock by Bram, on Flickr Nautopolis Loading Dock by Bram, on Flickr greetings, Elderon

  13. Here is an animation I made for my Lego Ideas project, Air Galleys, using POV-ray: See more renderings and the full project at: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/108617 The most difficult part to animate was the flapping motion of the wings. At first I considered using a simple sine curve for the angle of the wings but the results were unsatisfactory. I ended up modeling the physical constraints of the model; as the wing shafts rest on the bottom of the ports they protrude from, their bases rotate with the gear they are connected to. As their contact point on the gear drops beneath the ledge of the port, the wings rise slowly and then quickly fall again as the opposite occurs. Here is a diagram:

  15. [HSH] Cat A - Rock Wranglers!

    Looks like I still made the deadline! Rock Wranglers Rock Wranglers by rodiziorobs, on Flickr High above the desert plains below, Mr. Hezekiah Arrup checks his instruments in preparation for another day of work. Aided by his assistant, Sam Weskill, Mr. Arrup is one of the few brave pioneers who have popularly become known as “Rock Wranglers,” men who risk their lives in the pursuit of energy harvested from the skies—in the form of the rare and energy-rich triflutamine gas, that is. What is triflutamine gas, you say? It is an extremely rare, lighter-than-air substance which is generally found in rich deposits contained within floating rocks. Why, Mr. Arrup’s very base of operations is built upon one of these rocks. Rock Wranglers! by rodiziorobs, on Flickr The process is simple but perilous: when the two scout a viable sample for extraction, they fire a cannon with a winch and grappling hook at it, then reel it in closer until they can use the pick to open a hole just large enough to insert a tap and draw out the triflutamine. If the rock they wish to extract is not within range, Mr. Arrup sets out in his airship, the AeroCrow, and tows their home rock a little closer. Mssrs. Arrup and Weskill have everything they need to keep them for several months--of particular note (besides Mr. Arrup's precious weather instruments) is a triflutamine-powered vapor condenser, which collects water vapor from the air, purifying it and trapping it in a cistern for the adventurers’ use. This along with the small kitchen and sleeping quarters comprises Mssrs. Arrup and Weskill’s lofty lodgings, which they call home sweet home. Rock Wranglers! by rodiziorobs, on Flickr Rock Wranglers! by rodiziorobs, on Flickr Rock Wranglers! by rodiziorobs, on Flickr Rock Wranglers! by rodiziorobs, on Flickr Rock Wranglers! by rodiziorobs, on Flickr Rock Wranglers! by rodiziorobs, on Flickr "Perhaps we should invest in a steam-powered drill, such as in this catalogue?" The MOC measures about 56 studs long by 22 wide; however, it fits easily inside a 48x48 space when placed diagonally. See more photos on my Flickr page: rodiziorobs
  16. Behold! My first microscale model. It took a lot out of me. C/C appreciated.
  17. MOC: Brickbuilt Man-o-War Airship

    Here it is! After $270 and a lot of waiting, the Man-o-War Class Airship! -Statistics- Name: Tian Requiem-Class III Warship Designer: Alfred Thruster Date: Completed in the Year of our Elluir, 1765. Rotors: 4 Thrusters: 2 Guns: 18 7.62x51mm machine guns, 2 8mm anti-landcraft guns Crew: 1 pilot, 18 gunners Length: 36.03 m Height: 7.41 m Width: 3.03 m Pieces: 3754 It's fairly modular, and could be readily expanded for more guns. Here it is with the top off. And here is the trusty pilot. More images are on my Brickshelf gallery, if you are interested.
  18. Here is my first-ever render! However, since it is sci-fi, I post it here, right? I looked around and that seems to be correct. If it isn't, I apologize admins! Behold, the Indomitable Rush! This ship blatantly steals ideas from both my Man-o-war airship and my Manticore mech. But the end result, I think, still looks original.
  19. MOC Steampunk Ramship

    Here is one I've been holding onto for some time. This is probably my oldest lasting creation. I just never got around to photographing it. To get pieces for my big airship I had to scrap it but I thought I'd take some commemorative shots prior to that. Here she is, the Ramship! As you can see, it depends on both new and old brown which may be why I haven't posted it until now. What do you think of it?
  20. Make Love Not War

    This MOC was done by my wife (anabanana) for the contest. She asked me to public this on EB. She will be glad to read your comments. Year 1967 United States under pressure after the Vietnam War. Young couple Judith and Ray travels everywhere on their painted minibus "Volkswagen» (T1 Sumba bus). They are making friends and discovering new cities. The world for them is limitless! Especially because they have their own ... blimp! They deliberately rejected the choice of their fellow students of the Purdue University in Indiana to work for military defense. Instead, they decided to build an airship and go by it, bringing peace to the world. And what should it be? Of course freight! After all, where they can go without their "Volkswagen"? It would be great to control the airship from the bus then the gondola is not necessary. Judith and Ray found many like-minded people, and together airship rose skyward. This cargo airship can lift Judith, Ray and their minivan. The balloon has 4 stabilizers and two propellers. The platform is attached to the four beams that are connected in pairs holding tank with two black wide wire ropes. And there's an interesting feature: the minivan on the flight becomes cockpit. Ray made the controls of Volkswagen to be the controls of the airship by the radio waves.
  21. WIP Airship

    I try not to turn to outside sources much for my builds, but when I have to do them solely on Digital Designer, at first, for the cost I find myself wanting help and encouragement. Pixels are much less satisfying than actual plastic. So, here is my latest airship. It is quite a departure to some of my other stuff, being much bigger in scale. Please tell me what you think. I need to know if it's worth continuing or if I should scrap it. The problem with it, really, is the cost of actual bricks. I would love any advice on how to finish it and also on if it's worth the price (I estimate it will be +100 US dollars). Comments/Criticism Appreciated!
  22. MOC: The Airborne Jade

    Behold! The Airborne Jade! Originally a cargoship, this adventuring vessel was first commandeered by it's heroic pilot, Edvar Figgens, after he had an encounter with the Musina's Royal Air Police. Being an adventurer, Figgens of course did not pay for the airship but merely jumped into the controls while it's original pilot was eating a spicy sausage. Adventurers are not complete without a few scantily-clad females. Figgens has two. One was originally the mistress to a wealthy crime lord in Bulava. The other was part of the crew that manned the Airborne Jade when it was still a cargoship. Their names are unimportant, they are just garnishes, in the old heroic chauvinistic fashion. This was a really fun build. Please tell me what you think of it!
