Aurore posted a topic in Guilds of HistoricaAfter a few years of making custom minifigs, I have come to realise that minidolls are by far superior. The are way more realistic and expressive, and on top of that their elegant figures are a perfect match for the setting of my storyline. So here is an improved version of my main characters, from left to right: - Grog, Goblin Guard of Embervale - Evrart, Captain of the Guards of Embervale, - Alrune, Necromancer and Governor of Embervale, - Dresghar, Cultural Attaché of Embervale, with Rex the Tarasque Cub. Much better, right?
The Neighborhood Merchant posted a topic in Pirate MOCsAfter 113 years of development (that's right, before the release of lego), I present to you a MOC which could possibly revolutionize the lego industry as we know it. Prepare to be blinded by my all-powerful, Barracuda of the BLACK SEAS! 2050315ebbb0fc5011dce3acad2ab0db by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr As you can see, this is truly a breath-taking MOC. Now don't faint just yet, because I have to run you through the one of the kind play-features I included in this ingenious build. 8806820d6bb259bcf7f982af89de36f8 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Let's start with the rowboat. "Simplicity" must be the first word that strikes your mind when seeing, but alas, if you look closely you will notice a string. That's correct, but that isn't any string, it's A CORD and I used a truly spectacular method of creating a knot only the greatest minds of this generation would begin to comprehend. ee554e016dd55577db957e4f44cd6230 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Enough blabbering. Here's our next piece. Yes, it's a rudder, but perhaps the first-ever moving rudder presented to us by an intellectual (me of course). To create this ingenious design, I used a clip and attached it to some handles. It may seem simple to the weak-minded, but this practice took around 1,500 minutes to master. 2583388e83eb4c6ef2b71d9b6a80c82d by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Next, we have a fully functioning Captain's room. After 1.3 years of thought, (after achieving transcendence) I was able to imagine the perfect layout for this room, a treasure chest, a goblet, and a map. These are all necessities that we all have in our rooms so I figured a pirate captain would have them. Quite a long shot, but we all have to take a chance once in a while. 9ab5e0a6e5c4c38c78c25f4952f923cb by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Yes, the windows open as well. Take another second to bask in the glory of this MOC, take your time please as many before you have fallen trying to take this all in. Also, sorry, I've had a copyright on these play features for around 20 minutes now so if you use these play features ever, your MOC will be considered mine for all of eternity. c4bcefd74242df9d26c70c1da9223b9f by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Next, we have a custom flag I've created. Yes, I know, it's not official Lego, but I've spent around 15,000 hours and had to create an app called photoshop to make this intricate of a design. 13cb150028cfae413370599dccff8180 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Back to play-features. I've also included a board that can be used to recreate the Gollum scene from LotR. Quite ingenious to include it on a pirate moc if you ask me. 358c2a9e43df0ba6667d8a75c71e91ee by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Second to last, I have to introduce these sails I also custom designed. Took around 1.3 Trillion seconds, but that was the easy part. The difficulty was in getting lego to custom make a new rigging piece for me, because I couldn't keep tying those "truly spectacular method of creating a knot only the greatest minds of this generation would begin to comprehend" knots all day. 2a1b43b71130ee6545b384dbf1bfae2a by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr And lastly, the greatest piece: the figurehead. This may look like a normal minifigure to you, but I assure you it was created using the most prestigious tactics. I traveled in space to NASA's Jupiter Juno Probe to infiltrate and "borrow" it's minifigures (I suggest you look it up if you haven't already), then proceeded to melt them down to craft this figurehead mold. Shhhh don't tell NASA! So what'd you think? I hope it wasn't too much for you to enter another dark age, but please, contact me anytime if you'd like to become an apprentice. Stay tuned for the following other MOCs I have planned within the next few millennia: -Red Beard's Rummer -Skull Eye's Stalker -Caribbean Clifford -King Anne's Avenge -The Plastic Pearl -Armada Ship of Flags -Loud Mary and most importantly -The Imperial Bankbreaker Happy Aprils Fools Day everyone! Honestly, I had a blast making this, and I think I went just a little bit overboard. Hope you enjoyed and stay safe, my friends! Take care and here's to another year of goofy times!
offroadcreations posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingSo, I got the idea to build this after Sariel referred to it as the "Jet With Backwards Wings" in one of his videos. I can't believe the designer did the wings wrong. What was he thinking? Even though the real model is weird, my Lego version is amazing!
