Made a B model using pieces from set 70834 "MetalBeard's Heavy Metal Motor Trike!" Very happy with the shape I was able to get from the pieces and was even able to give metalbeard a body with the spares.
I had a ton of fun on this alt build! It's a redux of the classic 1987 Stardefender 200 from the Futuron series. I used only a single copy of the new Lego Movie 2 set 70849-1: Wyld-Mayhem Star Fighter. Behold the StarryFriender 200: I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I was able to keep the same overall design with a central sloping canopy, dual forward mandible guns, and detachable side pods. Obviously the name is a gag; the set has many "Friends" colors. The pods are about as small as they can be while still fitting a minifig. I don't think I had the pieces to make them any bigger! The rear is a little busy. I decided to use the colorful curvy pieces there for some visual interest. This is a Systar ship after all. I used the small cones as thrusters like the original Stardefender 200. Thanks for looking!
Did a random search for Creator sets and stumbled onto Mini Trains. I like it, it's cheap and the suggested models are distinct from each other. So I got to thinking, how do I take these old-timey trains and turn them into something more hi-tech? I went with the obvious answer of course, turn the train into a wireless hydroelectric power station! Hydroelectric Power Station (4837-1 Mini Trains Alt Model) by Henchmen4Hire I hope it's more or less clear how it supposedly works lol. The two metal towers are some kind of generators, the clips could be antennas or a place to lash cables from the generators. Power is stored in the black tanks, which are connected to the, uh, transceiver? and then shot out into the open so devices can use the free wireless energy.
