  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 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. 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 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? 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 ;) Here you can enjoy the anti-theft protecion cannon in action... "Say hello to my little friend" 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... Have you ever tried sleeping on a canopy bed made of 100 dollar bills? Trust Scrooge, you will sleep like a baby 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). Here is Scrooge, literally showering in money, happy as a baby. He even has the shower curtain made of dollars 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? 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 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 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? 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. Thanks to all the ones who will help this project become real
  2. It all started with the Obelix bust I created 2 years ago. I knew I would eventually build his partner Asterix, since they share many critical characteristics as the helmet, the nose, ears and cheeks. Then I decided to suggest them both as pair on Lego Ideas because I feel they might generate a lot of interest from big Asterix & Obelix fans like me! If you feel like it, take the time to support in on Lego Ideas to become an official Lego set. Support on LEGO Ideas
  3. Hi Guys! I'm Bricksfeeder. I want to share with you my big project I began at the beginning of 2019 : The Arkham Asylum! I will explain you more in detail the concept, my whole project and the WIP on this MOC in video (Youtube, Instagram) and Post. Let me know if you have some preference for this content or if you would like to get building instructions of this project or parts of this project. If you have advice to improve my MOCs or the content of my YouTube Channel, tell me in comment! :) I hope you enjoy this project. Don't forget to follow, like and subscribe! :) It’s not a big update but all the vehicles are done except the train. For the Extra features, I make few things which is already available : - Mr. Freeze Armor - 70's Ambulance - My own Batmobile (https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-26146/BricksFeeder/brickfeeders-batmobile/#comments) - Asylum Stretcher (https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-24834/BricksFeeder/asylum-stretcher/#comments) - Batdrone (https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-24835/BricksFeeder/batdrone/#comments) - Joker's Lowrider (https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-24837/BricksFeeder/jokers-lowrider-7studs-wide-car/#comments) - GCPD Car (https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-24861/BricksFeeder/gcpd-car-police-car-7studs-wide-car/#comments) - Arkham Armored Truck (https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-24850/BricksFeeder/armored-truck/#comments) - Nightmare Scarecrow (https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-30910/BricksFeeder/nightmare-scarecrow-inspired-by-the-arkham-asylum-game/#comments) For the moment, I didn't make a lot of progress on the Arkham Asylum (I was busy) but I have new few ideas... Stay tuned! ;)
  4. I have a question concerning the use of themed LEGO Minifigs in a MOC comic strip. I have some comic strips in the works that feature Emmet and Batman minifigs from The Lego Movie. The characters are depicted as themselves, and the personalities and mannerisms featured in the comics are similar to those found in the movie. Are there any form of copyright infringement concerns with LEGO or the Lego Movie entities by posting these MOC comics here on the forums? Thanks

    Għajn Tuffieħa Escape

    Hey, on Redbeard's Cove fanpage you can find new pirate short comic "Għajn Tuffieħa Escape" chapter one... and other images ☠️?? I took a lot of Redbeard's photos and had to do something :) Għajn Tuffieħa Tower was built in 1637 on the cliffs overlooking Għajn Tuffieħa Bay close to Mellieħa. The tower was designed by the Italian architect Vincenzo Maculani. It was originally armed with a ½-pounder gun, and its garrison consisted of a captain and three men (source: Wikipedia) Link: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=141259120615513&id=109709893770436&sfnsn=mo

  10. I have a deep and unironic affection for the Supermobile, goofy as it is, thanks to owning the Corgi toy as a kid and have wanted to make a Lego version for a while. I've seen several really good ones from other folks through the years, a few of which even included some great step-by-step instructions, but I never had the time or patience to figure out what I was lacking brickwise and put in an order for whatever I still needed. I also wanted to make my own version more than just build someone else's, so a week or two ago I figured I'd sit down and see what I could make with what I had available. I'd love to go back and redesign someday to try and cover all the visible studs, but I'm pretty happy with the results of my first attempt. Here's the side view to start... Front view... Cockpit interior (with that scope that allows him to focus his vision powers...
  11. Admitting I'm something of a purist at heart, most minifig customs I have done have no actual alteration (just mixed & matched lego parts) but my sister offered to paint one of my fedoras, and I was shocked at how much better it looked. It was a lesson in how far a little custom work can go. The Shadow is a comic hero that was the main inspiration for the original Batman, V for Vendetta, and many others. I hope you guys like this minfig, even slightly modified, as much as I do. "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!"
  12. Discuss the past, present, and future of DC Animation here, whether it be theatrically released feature films, direct-to-home media, TV shows, and everything else in between.

    [MOC] Arkham Asylum Batwing

    I show you my MOC of the Batwing from the Arkham Asylum Video game. This MOC has 429 pieces. Let me know what you think about this MOC! :) Tell me which one would you like to see next time or tell me what you want me to build! Special Thanks to Lucas / The Incinerator14 (https://www.flickr.com/photos/theincinerators) for the advice and his kindness! I credit Giulio Manuelli too (http://www.moc-pages.com/home.php/102785). He made an Arkham Asylum Batwing too but 4 years before mine. Although similar, I didn't copy his design. It's just a big coincidence but by respect, I credit him! :) The Display is highly inspired by the MOC of Outer Rim Emperor.

    [MOC] Judge Dredd Brick Built Figure

    Hi all, Here is my brick built figure of UK based 2000ad's law man of the future Judge Dredd. I always enjoyed reading Judge Dredd comics as a young 'un as I loved the dystopian grittiness and madness of Dredd's sci-fi world. Where every one wore their under pants on the inside of their trousers and Dredd's eyeless grimace was all the super power he needed.

    LEGO DC Comics Discussion

    This is a forum where you can discuss multiple topics on DC and upload an MOCs, leaks, rumours and more. Is anyone doing the Rebrick competition
  20. Hello, I apologize if this isn't the place. I was thinking about posting to already established threads in the sticky but many of those haven't been posted in since 2013-2014 and I would assume some of the information would be outdated. I thought I would be able to use my Galaxy S6 phone to take decent photos but it's simply not working out. I can only focus on one small area at a time and the zoom is simply terrible so I am in need of a real camera. I'd like to spend less than $300 but all I care about is taking really good photos. I have decent experience with Photoshop and other tools but I would prefer to have my photos looking great and then added to with post rather than taking alright photos and making them adequate. One thing that's important is focus for me, I'd like to have everything in focus, or certain areas, or pretty decent zoom-ins. Has anybody made comics with LEGO and achieved good results? I have lights, decent backdrop setup, etc but all I'm missing is the camera. Thanks for the help in advance.
  21. Hi, I'm new, so if this is not the correct type of post to make in this section, I apologize. Anyway, the most troubling thing to me, as someone who is trying to collect all the Marvel figures are the Comic-Con exclusives. As a Lego purist, I generally avoid buying any sort of custom pieces, but I eventually caved and started looking for replicas of the Comic-Con figures. I found the Decool Jean Grey online for like three bucks, and it looks surprisingly very nice and almost exactly like the original figure (definitely beats shelling out $200+ for the real thing). Generally speaking, though I have had a lot of trouble finding replicas accurate enough to meet my standards. This past weekend I was at BrickUniverse in Raleigh, NC and I found a vendor selling a Spider-Woman replica, which I bought (I believe I have his business card, so I can provide details if requested). Otherwise, though, I haven't had much luck. What is the general consensus on buying replicas over the real thing in extreme cases like this? Has anyone else found any good replicas of the Comic-Con figures that I haven't? If so, where did you find them?

    Seaman's Story

    Hi, LEGO pirates fans This is my most favorite LEGO series. Some fans advised me to translate from Russian into English my poem dedicated to the 80th anniversary of LEGO. If I mischose the theme, a regulater will choose where to upload it better. Many thanks. The text is in Russian and in English. (Sorry I failed to translate using rhymes). And I tried to illustrate it with the best official LEGO sets pictures. (Do you know if there is a LEGO tavern? I need it, please). Please enjoy.

Словно смутные виденья вспоминая наяву,................................................As if trying to remember disappeared night apparitions Мореход, придя в таверну, всем расскажет жизнь свою.............................A sailor will tell everybody about his life. Merchant ship Про жестокий вал девятый, соль на мачте и снастях................................About the terrible tenth wave, salt on masts and tacle И, конечно, про пиратов – самый главный тайный страх.........................And of coarse about pirates - the main secret fear.

Не тревожьте силы моря, вас не тронут и они...........................................Don't trouble sea creatures and they won't trouble you. И шторма в морском просторе часто издали видны..................................And storms on the endless seas are often seen from far away. Но порой под мирным флагом - словно новости узнать – ........................But sometimes, under a friendly flag, as if to ask for hail news, Проплывает судно рядом и врагов не распознать....................................,A vessel sails nearby and you can't guess they're enemies.

Не о судьбах и причинах, приводящих под топор,.....................................The corsairs, drinking rum and wine, will argue Распивая ром и вина, заведут корсары спор..............................................Not about fate and reasons leading to a gibbet. А о том, побольше злата на каких везут судах...........................................But about which vessels are carrying more gold И удастся ли атака или вновь потерпят крах,...........................................And if their attack would be a success or they'd break back, Не поднять ли бунт на судне, не сменить ли вожака,...............................Should they begin a riot and change their leader Если вновь в добыче скудной будет доля моряка......................................If sailors' portion of treasure be too small. Ну, а если же богатой, не найти ли островок.............................................But if it were large you can find an island Да награбленное спрятать, отложив на злой денёк..................................And bury the captured treasure till a rainy day. По дороге к эшафоту не шепнуть ли палачу:............................................You can whisper to the hangman on the way to the gibbet Помоги вернуть свободу, я взамен озолочу...............................................Asking to help you escape in exchange of much gold. Показать кусочек карты в подтверждение к словам.................................You can show a part of thr treasure map to prove your words И добавить: план удастся, остальное после дам.-..................................And add that you'll give the map if the plan be a success. О таком и о подобном могут долго рассуждать.........................................Pirates can argue about such stories for hours on end. Но раздастся крик тревожный. Значит, всех наверх свистать.................Suddenly they hear a signal piping all hands on deck. Значит, пробил час опасный, настигает в море враг...................................It means some danger - an enemy is nearing. Так и есть.

А отпетых флибустьеров сундучок ждёт золотой........................................And the rascals and flibusters will get a chest of gold. Оттого и бродят байки про несметный тайный клад..................................That's why you can hear muck for mugs about super treasure От Макао до Ямайки об одном на разный лад..........................................From Macao to Jamaica - with different details. Про летучего голландца и исчадия пучин...................................................About the Flying Dutchman and sea monsters. В них во всех не разобраться, но финал у всех один.................................It's difficult to catch sense but they finish alike.

  23. Hi, LEGO samurai fans. It's my second favourite LEGO series.So I present my poem about them. It is in Russian and I tried to translate it into English and illustrated it with LEGO sets. If you like it, I'll translate some others, too (about pirates, knights etc.) Please feel free to suport my 2 LEGO ideas projects. Waiting for your C&C. Bansai! БОЛЬШАЯ РАЗНИЦА Great Difference В неприступном горном замке самурайский сёгун* жил................... A samurai shogun lived in a stronghold on a mountain. Всю округу он к порядку верной стражей приучил .......................... His guards made all his neighbors obey his orders. Много раз пытались ниндзя по заданию врагов.............................. Ninjas were sent by his enemies many times Штурмовать его твердыню, но глубок защитный ров,.................... To siege his castle, but the moat is deep, Высоки и крепки стены, словно горный монолит. ......................... The walls are high and as strong as mountain monolith. Только в схватке непременно кто-то должен победить. ............... But someone must sure win a battle. Самураи и синоби* – вот заклятые враги................................. Samirai and sinobi are great enemies. Долгу верные до гроба, не отступятся они............................... They are dutiful and never stand back. Только разница большая: есть наёмник и слуга...................... But the difference is great: a mercenary and a servant. Если верность самурая не растёт от кошелька, ................... Samurai's loyalty doesn't depend on money. То у ниндзя чем он толще, тем короче к цели путь................. As for ninja - the more he gets the more he serves. Удовольствие тем больше, чем сложней задачи ждут........... And the harder his task, the more pleased he is. Ведь успех в опасном деле учит многому всегда: ........................... Success in a dangerous mission always teaches you much: Что и где не доглядели стражи нового врага, .............................Where there are weak points of each new enemy's guards, Как возможно незаметней проникать в его чертог .............................How to get unseen into his chamber, И когда в бою полезней лук, кинжал или клинок. .............................And when a bow, a dagger or katana is more useful in a fight. Кто искусства боевые постигает с ранних лет, .............................That one who practices marshial arts from youth Овладеть способен ими. Но в мотивах весь секрет..............................Can master them. But what's the secret reason? В том, как в жизни поступаешь, часто важно – почему?.......................It's often important why you act like that. Воин или побеждает или ищет смерть в бою. ........................A warrior eithe wins or seaks death in the battle. Не прочесть мотивов сердца в выражении лица. ........................No one can guess what's deep in the heart of a ninja just looking at his face. Лишь ему они известны да, пожалуй, небесам. ........................Only he himself and the heavens may know that. Под одеждой полотняной металлический корсет .......................There is a metal corset under his robe Для защиты от ударов, пуль и стрел. И в нём секрет. .......................To protect him from strikes, bullets and arrows. There is a secret in it: Ядовитые пластины вплетены в его узор, .......................... Poisonous stripes are a part of the corset's decoration Чтобы смерть врага настигла, если с ним проигран спор...........................To kill the enemy even when he wins. Как трофей возьмёт кольчугу, но, надев её, умрёт, .............................He will take the armour as a trophy but will die Если точно знать не будет, в чём для яда антидот. .............................Not knowing the antidote for the poison. Всё, что путь облегчит к цели, чем бы ни было оно, .............................Anything that can make his goal easy to reach Применять в бою умеет тот, чья жизнь и путь клинок. .............................That one can use in the fight whose life and path - katana. Ведь ниндзютсу есть искусство обладания мечом .................Ninjutsu is an art of using katana И способность даже чувства контролировать умом. ..................And also an ability to controle emotions and feelings. Не бояться даже боли, как бы ни была сильна, ...................Strength of will if it's trained allows Позволяет сила воли, если развита она. ...................Not to be afraid of any pain. Раны тела крепость духа неспособна исцелять, ....................Strength of spirit can't cure woundsof body/ Но пока к ним сердце глухо, бой возможно продолжать....................But while a ninja's heart doesn't feel them, he can fight. Кто из схватки не вернётся, но сумеет победить, ...............He , who will die but win Лучше тех, кто содрогнётся и отступит, чтобы жить. ................Is better than those who run for life. Самурай служитель долга, господину верен он. ................Samurai is a man of duty, faithful to his master. Одолеть способен многих, защищая знатный дом. ...............He can defeat many defending a noble house. А взамен не благ и славы, лишь почтения он ждёт. ................And his reward be not wealth or glory. He expects only respect. И героев чтит держава, им по чести воздаёт. ................And heroes are honoured by the country. Самураи в сёгунате* на почётнейших местах. .................Samurais have the best seats in shogunate. Сам великий император держит власть на их клинках. .................Their swards help the great Emperor keep his power. Опираясь на достойных в начинаниях благих, .................Being supported in his deeds by worthy Может быть монарх спокоен за судьбу границ своих. ................A Ruler needn't worry about his boarders. Только в мирном государстве благоденствует народ. .................The people are well off only in a pieceful country. А в годину смут и распрей и древнейший трон падёт. ..................Disturbances and faction can ruin any throne. Предводитель самураев титул сёгуна несёт, ....................The head of samurai has a tytle of shogun. Перед троном отвечает за страну и за народ. ...................He is responsible for the country and people before the throne. А у ниндзя предводитель мастер тайн и злых интриг, ...................The head of ninja is a master of misteries and evil plots. С кем угодно ради выгод может сделку заключить. ...................He can make a bargain with anybody for the sake of gain. Вечен спор щитов и копий, нежных вод и твёрдых скал, ....................The controversy of a shield and a spear, of tender waters and hard rocks, Самураев и синоби, словно инь и янь начал. .....................Of samurai and sinobi - is eternal as yin and yan of elements. *сёгун – глава самураев shogun - the head of samurai *синоби – наёмный убийца sinobi - asassin *ниндзя – тайный человек ninja - hiding man *сёгунат – высший военный совет shogunate - supreme militaru council in fudal Japan
