Hello People :) After all this time I’m back with a new creation . The reason you haven’t seen anything for so long is because I went through a process of rethinking the way I build . I used to mainly recreate models from Star Wars or DC comics , with a sole purpose of making the MOC look as accurate to the original as possible , sacrificing stability , playability and overall good structure most of the time . I was no longer satisfied with that . From now on my goals are to build MOCs that both look good , and also are fun , playable , contain smart play features and generally function well as toys. The first result of this “new style” is what you see below : my own original Batmobile. While it draws inspiration from a couple of Batmobiles ( mainly Arkham Knight’s and BvS’s) it is my own spin on the classic vehicle , the Predator . It’s packed with action features : a stud shooter turret , a “hook” style spring-loaded shooter, opening trunk with all the gear you’ll need ( batarangs , a new remote batarang made from some old knight helmet feathers , extra ammo and a line launcher ) and the ability to transform between two modes , one ideal for battles and one built for speed. Also, the turret can be swapped out for a winch , which can be attached to the front spring loaded shooter and then shot - you can catch enemies’ vehicles , bring down walls , shoot it towards a roof and then climb , the possibilities are endless. I have also built a display MOC for my Batmobile - which is the first segment of what will eventually become a full Batcave . It has working lights and spins slowly - as a car turntable should. I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on this . Do you like this new style of building ? Do you like the look of the car ? What about the functions ? Do you want to see a full Batcave ? Your comments are very important to me :)
Okay guys, today I'm gonna explain how to create your own grapple batarang... if you have the pieces of course! What you'll need... 1x old Bat 'wing' http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=bb203 Some thread or string, ( note for purists, LEGO have released string before although it may be too long for this purpose.) 1x Droid body piece (SW) http://www.bricklink...tem.asp?P=30375 Now the last part can be in any colour, although you'll find that black or silver work best as that stick to Batman's colour scheme. Instructions: Firstly, cut the string or thread down to around 15cm (depending on the function it will serve) and place to one side. Next, take the wing piece and tie one end of the string through the middle. Check that this is a strong knot and snip off any excess thread. Tie the other end of the string onto the droid body, making sure that the knot is under the stud the way it would be if the part was used on a droid. This is vital as you will need the other half of the body to clip to a minifig. Take a minifigure (obviously this is designed for Batman) and clip there hands onto the other half of the body part. Unfortunately, I was unable to post pictures of what the finished build looks like, but I have made these many times and the finished outcome looks simple but cool. If anybody makes this, I would love to see some pics and hear some thoughts on it. Even though it is a simple build, I believe it is pretty decent as a grapple. TT
