    Large Gotham City MOC

    Hi everyone. Those who follow me on Flickr have probably already seen the beginnings of this project. To celebrate Batman's 80th anniversary this year I made a series of 12 vignettes that spotlight his most famous villains. Then, to top it off, I made a GCPD building which was added on top of the assembled models Below you'll find the Imgur album http://imgur.com/gallery/q096Per Thank you for your time

    [MOD] My Clayface mods

    I messed around with the face a bit and created some new hands. Fiddling around with leftover bits:
  3. My local Asda was clearing out the Clayface sets for £14, so I bought one , which meant I could build him a pair of functioning hands. Having re-watched the "Feat of clay" episodes from Batman The Animated Series , I got the idea (which some forum member has probably already done better ,than me), to use the left over bits ,to show Clayface oozing across the ground.I`m drifting in and out of this crappy flu bug at the moment, so this all I`ve come up with for now, but I`ve got some vignette ideas bouncing around my congested skull!

  4. After watching The LEGO Batman Movie, I am now ready to give a full review of this set with perspective from the movie. Let’s get the ball rolling for my 3rd Eurobricks review. Overview Name: 70904 Clayface Splat Attack Theme: LEGO System / The LEGO Batman Movie Year: 2017 (1H) Pieces: 448 Minifigures: 2 Price: USD 34.99 / EUR 34.99 / GBP 29.99 / SGD 64.99 / MYR 179.90 Resources: Brickset and Bricklink Introduction As a kid I watched the Batman animated series on TV every week. Even though Clayface did not appear in any major live action Batman movie I can vividly recall this villain with its shape shifting abilities. His origin story from the animated series is also quite horrendous so that’s probably the reason why I remember this character very well. The front box art shows Clayface’s big mouth with his right arm shaped like a giant hammer ready to pound Mayor McCaskill. At the back of the box it shows Clayface firing off six-studs rapid shooter as Batman tries to save Mayor McCaskill. There is nothing fancy on the sides of the box so let’s move on. Inside we get 4 numbered bags and an instruction booklet. I am happy to say there is no sticker sheet. Hurray! Build Below is the preview of the instruction booklet on how each bag contributes to the build. Bag # 1 contents This is the body frame of Clayface. It uses basic SNOT techniques very effectively to pull off the structure needed for Clayface’s body. After completing bag #1 you’ll have the body frame and legs completed. You also complete a very small build that makes up the clay “splat” trap holding Mayor McCaskill. Bag # 2 contents After completing bag #2, the front and back of Clayface’s body is already fully covered with medium nougat (BL: medium dark flesh) 2x2 round plates. I cannot recall any other set that uses round plates to achieve this kind of texture and detail. The hinges provide the necessary angle to make the body rounded. At first I thought the round plates will be flimsy but they hold up quite well. Bag #3 contents Bag #3 adds the face and the upper arms. As I mentioned earlier there is no sticker in this set so the eyes are printed on a pair of 1x2 slopes. The mouth is built using several clips that you can swivel up and down. This enables you to modify the facial expression of Clayface from a very mad or grumpy look (default expression) to a mild smile or smirk. So far I have no complaints but if I really need to nit-pick I wish that the designers added varying lengths of clips to add more varieties of facial expressions. Bag #4 contents Finally, bag #4 completes the set with three interchangeable lower arms-- two of them have six-studs rapid shooters and the other one has a hammer-fist. I admit that this is just petty criticism but why put six-studs rapid shooters for both arms when the designer clearly recognises the need for interchangeable arms? I think adding a lower arm with an articulated hand as seen in the movie is more suitable. People are teasing me…. that I look like a poop! Overall, the build of Clayface is really enjoyable. The texture created using round plates makes an unusual organic look that makes my wife gags whenever she sees it on display. Eventually, I have to hide it from her because she warmed me of dumping Clayface in the trash can if she sees it on display one more time. If being repulsive and ugly is the end-goal here, then the designers succeeded. My son likes changing the facial expression of Clayface. Even though the shape of the mouth is limited, the left and right eyes can be swapped to make the angry face look like a frown, as seen from the back of the box. Not to forget -- after completing the build, I still have all these spare parts. Parts Speaking of parts, I have to include a dedicated section of this review for parts alone because I am amazed at the crazy amount of parts in new colour included in this set. This is actually the main reason why I bought this set because once I grow tired of this set I can easily dismantle this and use the parts for my MOCs. It’s like the designer of this set challenged the boss and said “I want these parts in medium nougat or you won’t get this set created,” and voila! 15 new elements in medium nougat (BL: medium dark flesh) and 1 new element in reddish brown were created just for Clayface. In total, 271 pieces in new colours are used in this set (not counting the spare parts). Therefore, as this set has a total of 448 pieces, about 60% of this set is made of parts in new colour. Is there any other set in recent years that can beat that? Minifigures There are only 2 minifigs included in the set which is typical for its price bracket. Both has dual face printing as well as front and back torso printing. Sadly, leg printing is absent for both. If I will put on my Star Wars fanboy hat right now, I will demand “the minifigs must have leg printing” but fortunately this is not Star Wars and the price of this set is very reasonable that the absence of leg printing does not bother me at all. Mayor McCaskill’s is unique to this set and at this moment her bob cut hair piece also appears in this set only. Fun fact: Mariah Carey voiced the mayor. Her birthmark on the face is also present on the minifigure so by right if you own Mayor McCaskill minifigure then you own a Mariah Carey minifigure. I’m not a Superheroes collector so I don’t have a big amount of Batman minifigures but I happen to have The LEGO Movie (TLM) version of Batman that came out in set 70817 (Batman & Super Angry Kitty Attack). It is very similar to the Batman minifigure that comes in this set; however, there are slight differences. Both have angry and grinning faces but the expression from the older one is more exaggerated. The cape of the new Batman minifigure is made of spongy stretchable fabric while the old one uses the classic starched fabric. The utility belt is a new accessory and somehow because of this, Batman’s “10” abs are now more prominent (if you don’t get this reference then you’ve missed it in the TLBM). Also, the yellow ink in TLBM version is noticeably brighter. Overall, the new batman is the better minifigure. Conclusion Superman, you’re not supposed to be here! Ok, I said from the beginning that I will give my opinion with perspective from the movie so let’s address the elephant in the room here. Is the Clayface Splat Attack scene even in the movie? If you have not watched the movie and want to reveal the spoiler go ahead and read below. Now that you know if the set is accurate to the movie, does it even affect my opinion of this set? Not at all. In worst case scenario, I can look at this set as a parts pack to get new medium nougat coloured elements and even having said that this is still a very good and enjoyable set. It’s like an action figure set with 2 minifigures. If you strip it down to core selling points -- you get Batman, a very recognisable villain brick-built action figure with two six-stud rapid shooters, articulated joints and whimsical face, and a Mariah Carey minifigure. My gripe on Clayface not having more ways to change the expression and lacking a normal hand is just splitting hair because my son loves every bit of this set even though my wife hates it for reasons I cannot further articulate in this review. For me, it is one of the better-valued TLBM set out there. Even for someone not heavily invested in Superheroes I will recommend it just for the building experience and parts. Review summary Playability: 9/10 - enjoyable brick-built action figure that kids will love Design / Building Experience: 9/10 - Simple SNOT technique that works with unusual texture using round plates Price / Value for money: 10/10 - At best - a well-designed villain set; At worst - an excellent parts pack of medium nougat elements. Overall: 9/10 - Don’t buy this when it reminds you of poop. Other than that, I highly recommend it.
  5. Hi! See my new work! Stop Motion + Review and Speed Building) What do you think? Thanks!
  6. Here's what you can do from all the parts of "mud splat" build with some other parts from the hammer fist hand. You can do alternation so that you can use the parts from the other six-studs rapid shooter but the reason I chose the hammer fist hand is because I need two 2x2 round plates and it's easier to dismantle those from the hammer fist. I made the hands more robust Pictures provided below on how to construct it. Dude, where's my car? Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird. It's a plane. It's.... Mama Mia! The Dark Knight Rises All Dogs Go to Heaven Figure 1 Figure 2 Figure 3 Figure 4 You can see that there is a "gap" on figure 1 that makes the hand a little bit hollow inside. On its own it is already better than the v1 I created but you can make it more robust if you put 2 additional bricks and 1 more plate to form the "palm" and reinforce the structure. Figure 2 shows a stack of three 1x1 round plates that has no firm attachment. That particular part has no clutch power right at that edge but it can hold them together once firmly put in place. If you're looking for the set review, you can check the link below -- Thanks for reading. As always, wubba lubba dub dub.
  7. Alright so the new LEGO Batman Movie set was found today, and I really dislike the design So I spent the last hour and a half designing one I find more accurate and better. Lemme know what you think. The left hand is a stud shooter so you can shoot the fingers
