  1. The last round also had a lot of fun and interesting guesses, some even got it right as well! The only one to guess rabbit as the next animal mould and winner of round 2 was @Actor Builder 2017 have been a very good year so far with new animal moulds so let's see what Lego and round 3 will bring Guess what animal will be the next to have the honour of becoming a Lego mould You may also give a second guess on what existing animal mould will be the next to get a new colour and in which colour.. The rules: -Only minifig scale animals count, not mini-dolls, Duplo etc.. -Only "normal" animals take part, e.g the latest robot shark in agents, dragons or teddy bears doesn't count. -It doesn't matter which Lego series that release the mould as long as it is in minifig scale. -If Lego make a improved mould of a old animal that will only count in the second guessing category, e.g. the new horse in 2012. Let the game begin 1. My guess is that the next animal mould will be a Hammerhead shark 2. And that the lobster will get a blue colour

    [MOC] Laysan Albatross (Bird)

    My MOC of a Laysan Albatross (Phoebastria immutabilis), scale is roughly 1 stud : 1 cm of an adult bird, give or take a few cm. The model is about 34 studs bill to feet and 84 studs wingtip to wingtip when not folded at all. There is a vertical round brick with axle hole on the underside of the model near the center of gravity so the bird can be displayed in flight. To say this isn't inspired by the work of Thomas Poulsom would be disingenuous at best and an outright lie at worst. The model was first built in Stud.io and then went through several revisions of the physical model. My favorite part of the build was trying to figure out how to keep the bill attached to the head securely - It was also kind of tricky to get the legs to extend out past the tail, which is a defining feature of the albatross. The only part I'm not completely happy about is the eye - the bird should have a dark patch around the eye, but that was near impossible to do with the way the plates are stacked on the face. I also know there under-wings should have some dark pattern on them, but that was simply too difficult to do - adding more (smaller) plates would make the wings too fragile to stay together. Overall, I'm pretty happy with it. Bricksafe gallery with more photos, io file and pdf instructions
  3. Name: Apeface Allegiance: Decepticon Subgroup: Headmaster Horrorcons Alternate modes: Jet plane and gorilla Motto: Obnoxiousness is not a problem. It is an art ========== Actually this guy was never in my to-built list.. but since this is "year of triple changers" for me, and Apeface is sort of a low-hanging fruit compared to other triple changers when it comes to complexity, I give that a shot. Compared to the original G1 Apeface.. some compromises must be made in the form of a different-looking jet mode. Hope you guys like my rendition! The ball joints used for the gorilla rear legs are too weak to hold his body up. So he can't stand upright . With LEGO Snapdragon I rebuilt few months earlier. (He's not a Headmaster though). To view more photos especially how he transform between modes, proceed to my blog entry below: https://alanyuppie.blogspot.com/2019/10/lego-triple-changer-apeface-part-2-of-2.html Follow me in Instagram please! https://www.instagram.com/alanyuppie78/

    [Moc] Rhesus Macaque

    Hello, I finally present you the model which consumed most of my building time for a long period. It´s a lifesize male rhesus macaque. I hope you like it!
  7. Been having fun with my Nexo Knights, some knock-off Dinosaurs and Legend Beasts, some real Lego Legend Beasts and a random Mixel. I thought it'd be fun for each knight to have an animal steed instead of vehicles. What kind of things would you like to see in Nexo Knights? Anybody else found any cool knock offs online that you wish were part of the franchise?

    [MOC] Rabbit

    Hello, I would have posted this model much earlier, but I had massive trouble to add the pictures from flickr... Thanks again, for the help! Well, it´s actually a rabbit, not a hare, so maybe the delay doesn´t matter (Easter and stuff...)

  10. Hello, it has been a long time since my last post. The last year wasn´t very productive. I still have some unfinished big Lego projects. Until then, I show you my new version of a ring-necked-parakeet.
  11. Hello, I have been working for awhile on my latest MOC, it's different from my usual MOCs and I am happy to present it to everyone here. [MOC] Lego Insects: A Ladybug, Butterfly, & Dragonfly by Rail Co, on Flickr The Butterfly: The butterfly was one of the most challenging but interesting builds to design. The key factors that make this model special is the ability to move and alter the wings however one pleases. The wings are built using mainly standard bricks and plates, bringing back a simple and nostalgic building experience from the childhood of many. However, there are a few SNOT building techniques. The bottom of the wings use the "headlight" bricks to invert the orientation of the studs allowing me to add the ability to have the bottom curve of the butterfly's wings. There are also studs on the side construction to achieve the curved sides of the wings as well. [MOC] Lego Insects: A Ladybug, Butterfly, & Dragonfly by Rail Co, on Flickr The Ladybug: The Ladybug is what inspired this whole project. The ladybug is small but has a lot of interesting and fun building techniques to get the shape of the ladybug just perfect. Using studs on the side construction as well as the "bracket" pieces make the ladybug slightly more round giving it a more realistic design than other techniques that were tried. The bottom is smoothed out using a mix of headlight bricks, plates, and even 1x1 round plates with a hole in the center! These actually connect to the center tube of the 1x2 brick giving another connection point to make the model more sturdy and makes building the model more engaging, as well as giving others building ideas for their own models. [MOC] Lego Insects: A Ladybug, Butterfly, & Dragonfly by Rail Co, on Flickr The Dragonfly: The dragonfly is the most simple model of the three, however, it still has some tricks up its sleeve. Dragonflies are a very thin and light. The model accurately represents a Dragonfly. The main interesting aspects of the model is the simpleness. After building the first 2 complex insects with small pieces and quirky techniques. This model gives the builder some room to breathe and is composed of simple construction. The most interesting part of the dragonfly for me personally is how I was able to us black minifigure hair to be the eyes of dragonfly. I tried many pieces but nothing ever looked right until I stumbled upon the minifigure hair. This is what makes the dragonfly stand out and still engages the builder with every building step. [MOC] Lego Insects: A Ladybug, Butterfly, & Dragonfly by Rail Co, on Flickr As of now my model is only digital but I hope to start accumulating the parts to build it sometimes within this year. I hope you enjoyed looking at my creation, if you feel so inclined I would love for your support on LEGO Ideas here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/d94ec0ee-9bee-4757-953f-ba39e85f81c2 Thank you all for looking! -RailCo

    [MOC] - Persian Ostrich Cart

    Who doesn´t love cool Lego animals and creatures?As for me,i´m always on the hunt for molded Lego animals and a while ago i got this cool little ostrich and a minifig of which both seem to come from the same set. While i was playing around with my Lego ostrich on my desk i thought how cool it would be if the large bird pulls a neat little cart for a minifig to sit in and so it came to live: Persian Ostrich Cart hese persian ostrichs are specially bred and are strong enough to pull a covered wooden cart for very long distances,even able run a fair distance when the situation requires it. IMG_20181227_131821 IMG_20181227_131801 IMG_20181227_131751 The cart holds and shelters one minifigure and the rear even has a trunk to store the minifigs belongings.In front of the minifig a crossbow is mounted to fend off attacking individuals on horse or foot. The drapes and the roof protect from the harsh sun and rain.

  14. Hi Lego enthusiasts, I recently noticed that the seagull from the collectible minifigure series 10 (Sea Captain) does not have the Lego logo mark on it. Is it because it's a soft piece? I think other Lego animals like goats do not have a Lego mark either, if I'm not mistaken. However, this is a hard piece. Is it possible to make a list with (modern) Lego pieces that do not have the Lego logo on them? It would help alot to see if a piece is not really Lego and therefore fake/counterfeit or not. The reason for why the logo is missing, remains unclear to me. It can be dangerous because you often see Chinese BrickLink stores (a country known for its factory facilities) with a massive amount of pieces you would assume are rare or hard to get. No Lego logo on piece - Seagull (col min series 10) - ... - ... Thanks a lot R.

    MOC: The Wild Horse

    Hi everybody, I present you the Wild Horse, a very huge creation of myself that many people would like to assemble, 1100 bricks and 75 cm long... Beside the Death Star, it's so... I don't know? WILD! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/bfba06f9-df7e-464f-93e7-226622d6e63e
  17. One of the female raptors laid eggs,and the first young offspring already hatched.Of course the hatchling needs to be examined and checked if it´s healthy,but try to distract a prehistoric caring mother from her baby. Luckily she enjoys prezels as a treat,and so the dino keepers put some tranquilizers in the prezel to calm her down. Let´s hope this works.... IMG_20180512_145534 IMG_20180512_145558 IMG_20180512_145608 IMG_20180512_145618 IMG_20180512_145628 IMG_20180512_145653 IMG_20180512_145708 IMG_20180512_145724 IMG_20180512_145736 I got the newest Lego Jurassic Park magazine which included a polyback with a new baby raptor and a nest with eggs. I wanted to add a bit more to it and so i build a small part of a raptor enclosure with a bit of fencing and some jungle. Now i finally have a place where i can put the two Lego Dimensions JP minifigs and my single Lego raptor. Hope you guys like this small MOC.
  18. Rugged supercar - Hammerhead (1:9 scale) This project was not something I started very consciously. Also for me it evolved into something special. I was especially happy with the interference (in a positive way) of other builders. A big thank you to this community, for pushing me in the right direction on several occasions! The most special part - to me - of this build, is the chassis. It combines a simple 4-speed AWD transmission, a flawless sequential shifting mechanism and advanced suspension setups with Ackermann steering, anti-roll bars, torsion bars, 2 studs ground clearance and 2 studs suspension travel. All wrapped together in a very flat yet rigid and coherent structure with a mid-console width of only 5 studs. I did not want the bodywork to make any compromises to these features. I wanted the body to continue the line of durability set in by the chassis. Flex-axles do not fit that image, hence no wheel arcs. They would also sit 2 studs above the hood - not very elegant. The result is a car that does not only look fool-proof; it is fool-proof. After a rough treatment, you don't need to tighten connections or fine-tune gears to avoid friction. You can carry the car by the sides, by the trunk door (rear wing), by the nose and by the bumpers without displacing any parts. You can even grab the 2Kg build by the roof and turn it upside down to see the bottom side without a problem. So I did not intend to level with great bodywork builders. To me the biggest compliment is that some have referred to this model as the successor of 8865 and 8880. Drive train AWD with 3 differentials Sequential 4-speed gearbox One-finger shifter V8 fake engine Suspension Double wishbone suspension Anti-roll bars (front & rear) 2 studs suspension travel 2 studs ground clearance Steering Ackermann steering Gear-rack sliders Working steering wheel HoG steering Chassis Sturdy and durable Integrated bumpers Adjustable seats Narrow mid-console (5L) Bodywork Sturdy and durable Integrated roll-cage Lockable doors Openable trunk Liftable By the roof By the sides By the nose By the trunk door Instructions are available on Rebrickable. There is a full-featured version called 'Rugged supercar' and a chassis-only version called 'Flat AWD chassis'. The chassis-only version confines itself to part 1 of the instructions of the full-featured version. Special thanks to @Blakbird and @BusterHaus - with Blakbird being the driving force - for taking on the task of making these beautiful instructions! Making instructions for a build like this is a tremendous amount of work. Even more so, given the fact that I have been very demanding in sticking to my original design. - 32005a (Link 1 x 6 without Stoppers) - used for the anti-roll bars and steering tie rods - is preferred over 32005b (Link 1 x 6 with Stoppers), because each link has tow-balls inserted from both sides. 32005b can be used too, but in that case each link will have one tow-ball that needs quite some force to insert. - 32056 (Liftarm 3 x 3 L-Shape Thin) - used for the door locks - is preferred over 32249 (Liftarm 3 x 3 L-Shape with Quarter Ellipse Thin). 32249 can be used too, but makes it more likely to accidentally lock the door while it's open, which is not a big deal of course. - 76138 (Shock Absorber 6.5L with Soft Spring) - used for the door locks - should be soft springs. They are quite rare in red, but you could also use two LBG soft springs. - 85543 (Rubber Belt Small (Round Cross Section) - used for the 90 degree limiter and the return-to-center of the gear shifter - should be relatively new, say max 2 years. Not that they wear out quickly, but the older ones are slightly less tight. Images of the full-featured version can be found here. Images of the chassis-only version can be found here. See the entry on The LEGO Car Blog! P.S. Where real cars start with a sketch, evolve into a professional design and finally have their technical details filled-in, this project started with some technical details, evolved into a complete design and ended up in a sketch ;-).

    Animals

    Hello! Recently I have decided to enter a contest over on Flickr, the Colossal Battle Contest in the group LEGO War. One of the categories is Beasts of battle, and I was wondering if anyone had ideas/techniques of how to build cool animals that might fit that theme. I already have one entry done, but I still want to hear some ideas and learn some new techniques to apply in other builds as well. I hope this topic will help others too, because I know that animals and beasts are often rather difficult to realistically represent in LEGO brick form. Thanks everyone!
