  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. So, there has been some Disney news lately, so I thought it would be time to start a general Disney discussion thread. The biggest news for me is that there is a new DuckTales series coming in 2017! Official announcement: http://blogs.disney.com/oh-my-disney/2015/02/25/this-is-not-a-drill-were-getting-new-ducktales-in-2017/ DuckTales was my favorite show as a kid, so this is great news for me! I'm glad that a whole new generation of kids will be able to enjoy this awesome show. But at the same time, I'm worried how they will update it. Disney hardly produces any traditional animation for their TV shows anymore, so there is a good chance that it will be CGI like Mickey's Clubhouse and some of their other shows, or even worse, Flash animation like 7D *shudder*. If they put enough effort into it, I think it could actually work in CG. For example, I quite liked Scrooge's rendition in Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas, but of course traditional animation is always preferred. Also, I really hope they don't change the theme song. It's one of the best and catchiest theme songs ever and I feel that any deviation would ruin it. With this and the live action Chip'n'Dale: Rescue Rangers movie next year, it seems that the Disney Afternoon is making a comeback. What other shows would you like to see return? I'm hoping for Darkwing Duck next (which I'm surprised they haven't brought back yet considering the superhero craze right now). Oh, and we got a trailer for Frozen Fever yesterday. I'm not interested in Cinderella (I don't see the point in making live action versions of Disney cartoons), but I wouldn't mind seeing this short film.

    LEGO Iron Giant [MOC]

    Hi guys! I've been working on this MOC for over a year and it's finally done! LINK to flickr album
  4. Gotta get back, back to the past... Samurai Jack! Armed with a magic sword, a heroic samurai warrior sets out to defeat the evil demon sorcerer Aku. However, Aku transports him into the distant future, where the residents name him "Jack". Now Samurai Jack must find a way to return home to the past and obliterate Aku once and for all! Don't forget your hat, Jack! "Who dares to summon I, Aku?!" Using all the pieces to make his main form, Aku can "shape-shift" by being rebuilt into a scorpion... …or even a winged creature! Summary of Aku's rebuildable forms. What do you think of my product idea? If you have any feedback or suggestions regarding what you'd like me to improve or add to my project (bonus forms for Aku, supporting characters, enemies, etc.), I'm more than happy to take them into consideration!

    Sonic and you

    80cm Sonic Before you ask, this is not a digital build. You may discover that the head is slightly (about 5 degree) leaning backward because it is too heavy. I can ensure you that tangible build is much funnier than digital build. I have to pay attention to the structure and balance of the model. Not a huge fan of Sonic, but my daughter is. So, this MOC is built for her. Desired to build this a year ago. The planning stage is long because I need to figure out how to support Sonic's huge head with his thin and long legs. The actual building stage takes about 2 weeks. No glue used. Instead, I use more than 100 liftarms to tackle the supporting issue. 0 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 4 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 7 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 8 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 9 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 6 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 2 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 5 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 10 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 12 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr 15 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr
  6. I made a short animation in Blender. I have plans for more episodes :)
  7. This is my first LEGO Unreal Engine 4 animation. It is about the Philippine-American War (1899-1902). It is my attempt at recreating a historical setting in the form of a LEGO film. Check out my blog post related to this animation here: https://staycalm182.blogspot.com/2020/05/my-first-lego-unreal-engine-4-animation.html . It took me about four days to create this animation. The software and websites I used are: Unreal Engine Bricklink Studio 2.0 Mecabricks Blender + Blender video sequence editor Mixamo
  8. I finally completed my most complicated LDCad animation to date It is a fully animated 8860 LEGO technic 'super car' set. You can watch it here (2:15 long). https://youtu.be/Ea1iHCSPbqo (Some how youtube messed with the quality though, the original x264 mkv is much sharper) It is an OpenGL export, I was originally planning to do a POV-Ray rendering (I've got the POV file) but it would take over 200 hours to render as it would need very high radiosity settings to prevent background flickering. This would result in 3750 frames of this quality: Fullsize img: http://www.melkert.net/img/mel/8860.png If anyone know of a way to reduce that flickering without having to crank the radiosity settings to 11 please let me know.
  9. In this video, i would like to show you the details between the setting which you found in Bricklink Studio 2.0 animation renderer section. I will covered most of the commonly use settings (for animation), and do a side by side comparison of those settings. Wish this video will help you to clear up some confusion between the setting differences which you found under the animation renderer. Hence, you may able to directly choose and use the setting that fit you the most. Hope you found this video is useful!

    BrickheadZ Sonic

    One of my daughter's favourite cartoon character. IMG_6251 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr IMG_6254 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr IMG_6253 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr IMG_6252 by skcheung730, 於 Flickr To be honest, I spend almost three days to build it. That's difficult.
  11. I'm amazed there isn't already a discussion topic for this, but yea, let's use this thread to talk Pixar films and related things. Personally, I love most Pixar films. Y'all probably know that the Toy Story series is my favorite trilogy of films. The next Pixar film coming out is Monsters University, which is Pixar's first prequel film. There is also talks of Finding Nemo 2 coming out in the near future. But, I particularly started this topic today as news just came out that the Cars spinoff, Planes, has been announced to be released in theaters on August 9th, 2013. It's kind of ironic as this is not going to be a film produced by Pixar. I will not be looking forward to Planes after the disaster that was Cars 2. Oh, and I really wonder if they'll make Planes LEGO sets.
  12. Hello everyone, I'm Andrew! Welcome to the topic of the KanoKubik LAB, where we explore LEGO sets in detail — to create beautiful animated stop-motion video reviews! Here I share with you the news and photos from the studio and each of us can take part in creating our content! I need your feedback to make my videos better and sets rating as objective as possible. Share your opinion and suggest LEGO sets that you would like to see in our next videos (new items and rare sets too)! It's so hard to create a YouTube channel alone nowadays, especially in connection with СOPPA. Thank You, Friends! :3 How to find me: YouTube: http://youtube.com/KanoKubikLAB Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/KanoKubikLAB This is a recent video on my channel. It is inspired by the new season 12 of the science fiction TV series - Doctor Who from BBC. This is an animated video review on a LEGO IDEAS 21304 set from 2015. Especially for this review, I came up with a new custom minifigure of the 13th Doctor, whose role was played by Jodie Whittaker. I will be very glad to see any of your comments, advises and feedbacks! Thank You! [media] [/media]
  13. 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!

    [MOC/IDEAS] The Mole

    The Mole - originally Krtek - is a cartoon character created by Czech animator Zdeněk Miler. He has appeared in 50 animations between 1956-2002. The mole is curious, friendly and caring. The animations vary from couple of minutes to half an hour in lenght and apart from the debut, "How the mole got his trousers", do not feature any narration or dialogue. Character's non-figurative exclamations were voiced my Miler's daughters. This was to have the cartoons understandable in every language without need of dubbing. The mole cartoons have been very popular in several countries, including many Central European countries, Russia, India, Japan and Finland. This is also my first IDEAS project. You can find it here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/96873418-a994-42b5-a8d8-ecfd3ba1af8a Support is appreciated. The model is rather sturdy - my models usully are not - as the Mole is quite a cylinder-shaped animal. He is also very round, which took plenty of SNOT connections and curved slopes to get right. The 3x3x2 curved corner pieces were the key parts. Another challenge were the arms, as I didn't want them to be just couple of tubes. More pictures can be found on my blog, Cyclopic Bricks.
  18. Hello Eurobricks, "The Blocky Guide to parenting / Internet-Research" is my english version of "Der kleine eckige Erziehungsratgeber / Recherche" - Brickfilm, with 2 awards at STEINEREI, german brickfilmfestival. "Best Animation" & "Best Voice Performance". To make it more enjoyable for non-german speakers i also wanted and made a english version - so have fun: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3uqVWuPNvM ******** german original version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3G9FSW-Wpf0&t=21s ******** a little look behind the scenes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7QxIK4j2sI ********* little story behind the clip: original-voices (german version) are from a radio-comedy. fortuitously i was listening to the episode "Recherche" and i could not believe my ears, hearing them talking about LEGO, "LEGO-Films" and that in combination with german poet "Goethe" and brickfilms with his poems. I made such brickfilms and called the producer for research in the product and my remix-idea. We both had a lough - and sure they had seen some of my animated clips and wrote that episode. I asked for permission to make it a "lego-Film" again and here we are. 3 years later - because the project was sleeping in my head a long time. planed that with minifigs first, but made it different, as it was also a long dream having some kind of brick-based Stop-Motion-Puppets. They are based somehow on the LEGO 31019 (Monkey) - a set i really liked and used for animation in clips before. But you know - it´s descended from the apes Have fun, Steffen

  20. Hi Eurobricks and swashbucklers. I haven't posted much of my own making in recent years, simply because well.. let's just say I'm a bit lazy. Sorry! Back in 2015-2016 when I was 15 -16 years old (I know, easy to remember) I started messing around a bit with a custom built ship and No. 6721 "Imperial Flagship" (which was one of the last second hand set I bought). It was also at that time I discovered the Aubrey-Maturin novels, and began devouring them in a way you don't expect from someone my age. I also found out a movie adaption was made, containing various elements from the novels. I watched it, and again, and again, and I became a bit obsessed with the story and historical accuracy. And I was (and still am) a lego fan. So 1+1 is 2, ey? I grabbed a green robe and tried recreating a scene! Thanks to a friend who helped me with final cut pro and my mother for sewing the sails, I am very glad I can present to you a movie I should've released three years ago! Here's something I had much fun working on, with vague images, laughable special effects and the occasional video thrown in. Please enjoy. I hope I inspire someone to make a perfect version of this. Kind regards, Captain Edward, or on youtube: Jiskpirate P.S. Be sure to check out my older animations on my channel, with some being reasonably successful, although not too good. For me, my channel is one big plaza of nostalgia.

  22. Hello all! Be warned, large images will be in this thread. Please be amazed and hopefully the moderators will be too :D ------------------- First time posting here, so howdy. lol I have already been infecting your discord channel before I even became an official member :P A little about me before I start what this topic is about: I work on building the instructions for installing curtain wall & storefronts as an real life job. So I work in the 2D & 3D architectural industry for a living. And I use Blender as an addictive hobby on the side. Go figure. My goal is to start making 5+ minute animations in only a 3D environment, as while I do have legos, I don't have the space for a full on film studio. I hope to enjoy a long stay with everyone here! I love to share my trade secrets to 3D modeling if your ever interested! ----------------------- On to my topic now: Please see below my work so far making 3D Lego animations. (I apologize for not obeying the 800px square) Thanks all, I will be updating this regularly! T_D
  23. I have made a short stop motion movie. I hope you enjoy it :D "Avengers: Vulture Battle with Iron Man and Spider-man" - LEGO Stop Motion Movie My other LEGO animation: "Avengers: Vulture Battle with Iron Man and Spider-man" - LEGO Stop Motion Movie "Grand Theft Auto" - LEGO Stop Motion Animation LEGO Stop Motion Movie "Spider-Man: Trunk Man's Challenge" LEGO Stop Motion Film-"I Will Get You..r......Hot Dog" LEGO Short Film--"The Bad Day Not Too Bad"
