  1. This thread collects everything you think you know about 2021 LEGO Star Wars sets; discuss your opinions here! Please read before posting: Stay on target. No wish lists. Remember that this topic is for discussing sets that are rumored to come in 2021. If it's something you wish to see or something you think that we will see sometime in the future, but not something that's actually rumored to be a 2021 set, then it is pure speculation and it belongs in the Future Star Wars Sets topic. (We also have a topic for minifigures you want to see, which might be more appropriate.) No fighting. Yes, we actually have to post that! If you post news in this thread, it will not be transferred over to the 2021 News thread. Be smart, think about what you are posting and in what thread you are posting. This IS your warning! If you have substantiated news, you can post it in the 2021 News thread. If your news is not able to be substantiated your post will be removed. If you choose to post fabricated information; you can expect to be banned. It's not worth the fifteen minutes of internet fame. Do not post watermarked or confidential images; they will be removed and the poster will be dealt with appropriately. As stated in our Member Guidelines: This topic is for 2021 discussion, not 2022, and not 2020. We will make a new topic when we feel it is necessary. If your post was on the boards, and now it's not...there is a good chance it was either hidden or moved. Off topic posts, placing info in the wrong thread, or a request from LEGO to remove something; these are all possible reasons why something may have disappeared.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Hi all, I figured that instead of hijacking everyone's threads with similar questions about modulars, to just create one thread where people can ask questions and the like. This way we are not junking up specific topics with questions about multiple modulars. I look forward to the discussion with everyone! ------------------------- :-: For Reference :-: We have had the following: Cafe Corner Market Street Green Grocer Fire Brigade Grand Emporium Pet Shop Town Hall Palace Cinema Parisan Restaurant Detectives Office Brick Bank Assembly Square Downtown Diner Corner Garage Bookshop The unique business's that have come out of those modulars are: Apartment (MS) Apartment (GC) Apartment (PR) Apartment (DO) Apartment (AS) Apartment (CG) Art Studio (PR) Bakery (MS) Bakery (AS) Bank (BB) Barbara Shop (DO) Book Store (BS) Cafe (CC) Cafe (AS) Dance Studio (AS) Dentist (AS) Department Store (GE) Detectives Office (DO) Diner (DD) Garage (CG) Gas Station (CG) Grocery Store (GC) Gym (DD) Fire House (FB) Flower Shop (AS) Laundromat (BB) Movie Theater (PC) Music Store (AS) Pet Store (PS) Photo Studio (AS) Pool Hall (DO) Recording Studio (DD) Restaurant (PR) Town Hall (TH) Town House (PS) Town House (BS) Veterinarian (CG)
  3. Hello everyone! Maybe it's too early, but let it happen. What do you think of the Speed Champions series in 2022? Do you think it will disappear or continue, or will it be under a different name? Anyway, personally, I think they will stay with us for a long time (after all, they have made specially new wheels for 2021). It seems to me that there is a good chance to see in 2022 in the SC series such cars: - BMW M8 (maybe GTE) - Pagani Zonda or Huayra - Ferrari - some F1 car - due to Toyota license can Toyota gr010 (hypercar) - maybe some cars from the DTM or VASC series Post comments about what you think.
  4. Dear All, after I was sleeping two days over opening a thread on "an idea", I am just doing it: This thread is intended to be a (Mindful) Pub to discuss ideas/projects/wild thinking/just memories/the good ol'days/8 bit/crazy16bit/express printers printing NCC1701/PDP10/11 ... and mostly 8bit computers - controlling LEGO 4.5V/9V/12V/RC/PF/ and yes: PUp devices. Whatever comes to mind. 8bit computers are OLD. Very old. As in: You may think the chemist down the road is old, but that's just peanuts to the age of 8bit computers. We are talking true retro here. C64, Dragon 32, Oric-1, BBC Micro, ZX's, Amstrad CPCs and so on and so forth. I don't know why, but it just never "left" me. When I was 23 years old, my wife (I was studying - well - chemistry) allowed me to buy a Sinclair ZX Spectrum. And it all began. Games never ever interested me (other than cracking the "copy protection" using the disassembled machine code) - it was the hardware. And changing/adding things. Controlling periphery. I graduated with a degree in chemistry though - and all figured out is "true homebrew". It was the world of TTL, CMOS, and ECL ... and the world of 16k x 1bit chips being expensive. Just imagine: The 16k ZX Spectrum I had was ready to be upgraded to 48k. There was also a factory version of the 48k Spectrum. To make that one as cheap as possible, Sinclair used defective 64k x 1bit chips: These chips are organized in 2 banks of 32k. Upon final testing manufacturers as TI and others sold chips with one defective bank to other companies as "32k" chips. Can you believe that? Yes of course. It makes total sense! But today? Never ever. Now, the idea for this thread is: Can we control ancient or even current LEGO electronics with 8bit computers? I am working on: Let a ZX Spectrum talk to an RCX brick. Why? Because. Nothing else. It has remotely to do with LEGO bricks being around since the 1960s - and still clutching - and LEGO electronics officially appearing and disappearing even faster than fashion trends do. You may think: So what. He has the ZX IF1 featuring an RS232 port. Well. The ZX speaks (hardwired = bolted in) 1 start, 8 data, no parity, 1 stop bit. The RCX speaks (again: Hardwired into the UART) 1 start, 8 data, odd parity, 1 stop bit (Challenge 1: Parity change). And then: The LEGO IR serial tower cranks out and sucks in bytes with no protocol at blistering 2400 Baud. The ZX IF1 can't handle that: After receiving 1 byte is pulls down the CTS -> RTS line - allowing one more byte and then think about how to store that (Challenge 2: HW protocol - the tower is totally dumb). Possible solution: Arduino as translator. We'll see. This thread will not be heavily populated, I believe. And it will take time. We are talking 1980s. There are some folks here on EB though who may have something to say ... or maybe not. @dr_spock suggested the title of this thread @Duq repairs old washing machines @zephyr1934 knows how to print NCC1701 on endless paper @UltraViolet likes when an EB topic is derailed because of 8bit computing ... This is it. Don't expect a viral thread. I am old. The cool thing though is: Posting here after ... let's say a year or so of silence will not get the moderators mad, as it is designed to be a repository All the best, Thorsten P.S.: Just for those who were born 2000(+) : k stands for kilo. A 16k x 1 RAM is a chip that holds 16384 bit (0/1). You needed 8 to get 16kByte RAM. Today, a 16G x 8bit DDR3 DIMM module, which holds about 1 million times more bytes, sells for about the same price as 16kByte cost in 1982. In other words: 1 bit then was 1.000.000 times more expensive than 1 bit is now, 40 years later.
  5. Hi guys Recently, I finished another model. It is a tractor unit inspired by Scania S-Series trucks. It has 6x4 drive and suspended axles. The front axle is suspended with normal LEGO hard shock absorbers. The rear axles have rubber suspension which imitates air-suspension as used in real trucks. The suspension at the rear axles is a bit hard but chassis is in return flat. The fifth wheel as a self-locking mechanism so that you can couple a trailer easily. To open the fifth wheel a small linear actuator is used. For steering a PU L motor sits directly on the front axle. For propulsion I used two PU XL motors. But check the pictures and video: Instruction at Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-86508/FT-creations/6x4-tractor-unit-inspired-by-scania/#details
  6. Hello guys. I want to present you my first MOC. I like Lego, I like American trucks, I decided to combine these two hobbies. I was inspired by the legendary Peterbilt 379. Features: opening engine hood opening doors HOG steering with working steering wheel in the cabin V8 fake engine with moving pistons It took me 3 months to work on the model. I redid many of the details several times and it was a very valuable experience. I am happy with the result. Instruction at Rebrickable:https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-86136/efgen86/classic-us-truck/#details P.S. I do not speak English. I use translator.
  7. A review of Ingmar Spijkhoven Building Experience Kits Introduction and Backstory Now the late Ingmar Spijkhoven was a father, husband, and a talented builder of Lego trucks and machinery. I found his Flickr site about 8 years ago when i joined Flickr with my first account there. I followed him, and he followed me which is an honor for me still to this day. Iam even using his fifth wheel design since then on a MOC truck i built at that time. (pictures of said truck down below) Couple of years later he started his own website and business https://www.ingmarspijkhoven.com/ with selling instructions for you so you can build your own truck or trailer. Soon after he started selling full "Experience Building Kits". On his site it says: "Our Building Experience Kits are exclusive sets, hand picked and packed of which only a limited number are made. Each kit has a unique limited edition serial number. The complete set comes in a luxurious high quality magnet box. It comes with printed building instructions with spiral binding and with high quality pre-cut custom stickers if required. Together with all genuine new LEGO® parts, added custom parts if required and all necessary so-called LEGO® Power Functions to remote control the model. These Building Experience Kits are complete and therefore ready to build!" They also sell accesories like brick build realistic engines, like a Detroit Diesel or Scania V8. And also sticker sheets and chrome wheels for your build, if you only bought the intructions and wanna build it with your own parts. I said to him on Flickr that sometime i want to buy one of your kits. But back then i couldn't afford it... Fast forward to mid 2019... Ingmar sadly lost the fight against ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) and passed away. On his last picture i wrote again that one day i will buy a kit. So last week i did... bought 3 kits. Last week i stumbled across @ritztoys thread about his Truck T17 moc which was inspired from Ingmar's builds. And it got my attention back into the whole theme. It all went quick. Ritztoys and I wrote back and forth and i wasn't really sure if i should buy a kit. A day later, july 27th, i ordered Truck T12 in yellow and lowboy trailer Tr4 in blue, both without RC stuff. Two days later i also ordered Truck T18 with Chrome and RC stuff. Expensive week that was... Nowadays his wife Esther, and probably some family members, are running the website and do the packing and shipping. All parcels arrived a week later... With this review i hope to get some attention for these kits. They well deserve it!! Disclaimer This is my first review and feel free to write some critique, sure it is needed :D. It is based on other reviews (like Jims and Sariels) throughout this forum. I don't have any fancy photography equipment so my pictures aren't the best. I can not show too much pictures of details and how everything is built. Spijkhoven also sell instructions and want to profit from that after all! This review is not sponsored by anyone. I bought all this! Truck T18 Now lets start with Truck T18 which resembles a Mack Vision. Released: 2018 Part Count: 2606 Weight: 2,20 kg Size: 47cm x 15cm x 20cm Scale 1:17,5 Building time: 6-7 hours Price: 1240€ (cheaper without optional RC and chrome) All boxes are custom and have a magnetic lid. The lid is closed and held in place by the limited edition number label, which unfortunately you have to cut to open the box. Each box is 42cm x 31cm x 16cm in size. I got edition #29 out of 100... Now there are either 71 of this kit left, which would mean they don't sell that often when its available since 2018, or they sell it random. So the next person might get #5 or so... Once you have opened it, you are greeted by a nice letter and about a million foam peanuts. Under that you have lots of bags. Some numbered and split in sections you build, and some unnumbered. The Instructions come as a single booklet with good quality paper and metal spiral binding. Everything is relatively easy to follow and straight forward. Again relatively! They are definitly not as easy to build as an official Lego set. Sometimes it is unrepetitive, you have 3 parts for one step, and 30 for the next. At some steps you have to look really carefully since it doesn't show well where a part goes, even with arrows. You have to check the next step quite often to make sure where it goes. Still, everything is possible and 99% thought through and doable! The stickers come precut from a 3rd party supplier and seem to be in nice quality. They are thicker and better quality than Lego! It even comes with extra Mack specific decals if you wanna build it in a different color. The chrome parts also come in its own bag. I think custombricks.nl is the supplier of those. They are good quality, but on the underside you see the original part color. And sometimes you have some chrome chipped off on one spot, but you can turn that spot to the inside. These parts are for rims, bumper, exhaust, fuel tanks and other details, and replace the light bluish grey parts in these areas. Lets start with the build of Truck T18 aka Mack Vision You start with the frame, suspension, detailed engine and some interior bits. You also install a second servo motor inside the sleeper cab which is used for a mechanism to rc controll and auto-open the fifth wheel. And i can tell you right now, i don't like this feature. You span a string from the fifth wheel all the way to the servo and there is lots of backlash in that system. When the servo turns and does it's thing, nothing opens on the fifth wheel. I had the string very taut and could not get it to work properly. Also that servo is only used to turn 90° to one side. The other way is blocked and if you try to turn it that way, it stalls, which could damage it. So after taking these pictures, i took it out. Not worth wasting the servo and a second IR receiver just for that, in my opinion. I open the fifth wheel with my fingers easy. More sleeper cab wall, fuel tanks, exhaust and wheels installed Leftover parts. Everything red is used as stands to help building and get removed after you finished it. Everything light bluish grey got replaced by the chrome pack. (apart from that one dish piece which would be a chrome differential detail, which i didn't like). I had a white rubberband missing in the kit. Should not happen at this price point!! And there it is, finished in all it's glory. The included RC control. Wheels for driving and one of the lever for the fifth wheel opening. Features: Fully RC controlled tractor unit. Openable hood and doors. Highly detailed interior, exterior and engine. Very sturdy model. Yeah some detail can fall off, but the frame is sturdy and everything feels well put together. Full suspension on all axles (solid axle suspension front, walking beam suspension rear). Truck T12 Next up is Truck T12 which resembles a Mack Granite. It is available in full yellow, or in orange with red stripe and white roof, but this one wasn't available at the moment. I ordered it without RC or chrome. Released: 2017 Part Count: 1920 Weight: 1,70 kg Size: 45cm x 16cm x 20cm Scale 1:17,5 Building time: 6 hours Price: 563€ (more expensive with RC pack) The box. I got edition #8 out of 100 After opening you have some numbered and unnumbered bags. For building you have to open all bags at once, since some chassis parts where inside the bodywork bags Stickers, same quality as T18's. Also has different colors available This Truck comes with some 3d printed parts for the steering. They replace some older hard to come by parts. You start building with the frame again of course. Everything pretty straight forward. Though, i had a cracked u-joint right away. Either this was a used part, or just bad quality... An L motor would go into this build, but i didn't had those, so i used some XLs instead. Pretty easy to adapt, more torque and they look like fuel tanks. Speaking of torque. The kits comes with 3 different set of gears. So if you need more torque or more speed you can choose. Both XL motors combine to one driveshaft under the cab, but splits into two driveshafts shortly after. One for each rear axle. Cab, engine, wheels and hood almost finished. The hoods of both trucks have some interesting building techniques inside to get the half hight steps for the wheel arches. Leftover parts. Building helpers, different gear ratio gears and some bits i had to remove for the XLs. I had two missing parts: 2 black 2l beams with a bar sticking out at a 45° angle. Again, should not happen at this price point!! And there you have you finished Mack Granite. Features: Fully RC controlled tractor unit. Openable hood and doors. Highly detailed interior, exterior and engine. Very sturdy model. Yeah some detail can fall off, but the frame is sturdy and everything feels well put together. Full suspension on all axles (solid axle suspension front, walking beam suspension rear). Trailer Tr4 Trailer Tr4 is an RGN (removeable gooseneck) lowboy trailer. I ordered it without RC or chrome. It can be ordered in blue, yellow, red and black. Released: 2014 Part Count: 1440 Weight: 2,00 kg Size: 95cm x 20cm x 14cm Scale 1:17,5 Building time: 6 hours Price: 610€ (more expensive with RC pack) The box. I got edition #25 out of 100. Inside you will find only unnumbered bags. So lets go puzzle. Leftover parts. Everything red are build helpers. The other parts... i don't know. You don't really have spare parts in these kits, but i checked the instructions back and forth... And there you have your finished trailer. I have already put some LED cables inside while building. In this picture of the underside you see some axles running through the framework. These are the parking break. There are cam pieces at the front which push that long axle against the wheels when you lower the trailer to the ground. Features: -Fully RC operable lowboy trailer -Solid axle suspension on all axles -Rear lift axle -Removable gooseneck -Parking break when lowered -removable side extensions Accessories Spijkhoven also send me some smaller accessories kits with my purchase for free. I didn't order them, but it was a welcome surprise. Tanker Trailer Tr11 It's an american style tanker trailer, which resembles a model from a manufacturer called Polar. It can haul fuel, chemicals, oils or acids. Now this is not a kit. I only bought the intructions, stickers and chrome rims from Spijkhoven. Most of the parts are from me or from bricklink. So this is a budget build. Also a full kit of this trailer is currently not available, and probably won't be anymore. Soon after ordering, i received the instructions as a PDF and couple of days later, stickers and rims arrived. I also customized mine a fair bit. I didn't use anything RC in this build. Parking brake and landing gear is RC operated original, but i made them manual operated. I also added LED lights powerd from the tractor unit, and a spare wheel where the battery box would sit. Spijkhoven has this trailer (and many other cool models) on Rebrickable https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-19117/Ingmar Spijkhoven/trailer-tr11-dark-bluish-gray/#details so you can export the part list to Bricklink and just buy everything you need. I had about a third of all parts in my collection. Released: 2018 Part Count: 1430-ish Weight: 1,80 kg Size: 71cm x 15cm x 20cm Scale 1:17,5 Building time: 4,5 hours Price: about 300€ (includes stickers and chrome rims, and when you buy all parts used of bricklink) When building you start of with two frame sections. Rear with suspension and front with landing gear and king pin. Then you build the huge cistern basically from ground up. The top is on the front, so you build a giant silo and lay it on the frame. It is quite fragile while building but once everything is connected, it's very sturdy Stickers are great quality as usual. The trailer also has a parking brake. You turn the gear and some levers press on the front axle tires and blocks them. Again, this is originally a RC controlled function. Features: -fully RC operable (landing gear and parking brake, if you build it after instructions) -Solid axle suspension on all axles Are they worth it??? ...you might ask. Hmm tough question!! I'd say yes. They are well built models with cool features and building techniques from a talented builder. It really is an experience! Still, it is a stupid amount of money. If you just don't have it or don't want to spend that much money, just get an intruction and your own parts. But you won't regret it either way! Additional pictures
  8. Happy May the 4th everyone! Toady is a special day. That's why I'm releasing my first MOC: the Torment Imperial-II Star Destroyer. Made of 3,011 pieces, 25 inches long (79 studs), weighing 2,07kg, it's a medium-sized, modular Imperial-II Star Destroyer holding on a single Lego stand. It features all of the recognizable elements of the real studio model: turrets, antennas, hangars, bridge, neck, engines, with close attention to every detail and proportions of the original Imperial-II ship from Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. Designing took about 70 days, plus 15 days for building / testing, & another 15 days for making instructions and photos. More than 3 months of work. My goal was to build the most accurate SD as I could, in a limited scale - a moderately-sized build that could still easily fit on a desk or shelf, and be moved freely. This choice of scale made working on greeble and proportions a real challenge. Designing a single, secure stand was not an easy task either. But after all this work, I'm really happy with the result. ► The instructions for the Torment are available (762-page PDF). If you want to buy them, hit me up at flyinspace.mocs@gmail.com All photos in my Flickr album. I plan to make more soon. Hope you guys enjoy it, and may the 4th be with you!

    Star Trek - Klingon Bird of Prey

    Hello I guess as my first ever post on this forum, not 100% sure this is the right spot for this kind of post, but I should introduce myself, I am a 34 year old from Australia, who has always had a passion for Lego but could never really afford it when I was a kid. But now having a 3 and 4 year old boy of my own who are completely obsessed with Lego, i have recently rediscovered my love of this simple toy. I have gone from building mostly sets, to creating my own designs. My aim is to make every design I do as something that my boys would love to play with so playability to me is everything. Anyway that's enough of that, I am wanting to show off one of my first designs, I really enjoy a challenge and I definitely had one with this project. I am a Sci-fi nerd and love Star Trek, in particular everything Klingon so I was very disappointed that Lego never got the star trek licence. I am currently working on building this Bird of Prey, at this stage I have only made the cockpit and neck, but have the parts for the wing and disruptor ordered. I am really looking forward to seeing how this Stud.io design that I have spent so many hours on turn into a real product. My main concerns for the build is how strong the wing hinge attachment is as there is quite a lot of weight on them. But I will find out in the next week or so when all my parts arrive and I can trial it. Hope you all find it interesting, I believe it turned out pretty good, with a few play features included, such as the dining hall, opening cockpit, adjustable wings and shooting disruptors. Model Details (according to Stud.io) 4335 pieces 74cm wide, 68cm long. 4.3kg I wanted to add more pics but it seems I can only upload 1 due to the size. See if I can work around this. Also if you are interested, I currently have a Lego Ideas set in the support stage. Its a minifigure scale SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket, again showing my love for all things space related. any support will be greatly appreciated. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/2a60e3c2-c86f-4154-8be3-6fb148943362/statistics I am very interested to hear what you all have to say about my Bird of Prey, any issues you see or possible problems I will have turning this into a real model. Thank you very much for reading this. :) Any ideas on how to post more pictures? I am not that tech savy. Thanks Ok I made a Flickr account to show some of the other photos. I have also ordered custom Klingon minifigures and Batleths to hang in the dining hall. https://www.flickr.com/photos/192336319@N06/
  10. The Y-45 armored transport hauler, also known as AT hauler, built by Kuat Drive Yards and used for the Galactic Empire, with its very agressive and intimidating design, was a great Midi-scale challenge. Accurately Microfig-scaled (or trophy-scaled), and made of 623 pieces, this MOC features all the typical angles and details of the original cargo ship: agressive cockpit shape, intricate wing angles, lower bridge with its guard-rails and stairs, ion engines and magnetic clamps, holding on a single, secure Lego stand. With very simple connections, both arms can be installed upwards to put the ship in landing mode. ► Instructions for the AT Hauler are available for purchase (high quality 180-page PDF & parts list). If you'd like to buy them, hit me up at flyinspace.mocs@gmail.com or visit my Rebrickable page! More pictures on my Flickr album.
  11. What do you think will be coming out of the Speed Champions series in 2021? Personally, I think there is a chance for something from IMSA. There may be such sets: Corvette C7.R (small set) Koenigsegg Jesco (small set) Porsche Taycan (small set) Toyota Ts050 Hybrid (double set) Aston Martin Vulcan or Vantage GTE (double set) And maybe something else with hypercar because of the WEC season 2020/2021

    [MOC] Krylhan Castle

    Standing like a magestic Castle on solid rocks, I’m back with a new MOC after going through a rough personal period. More pics on Flickr Instagram
  13. This is a re-built MOC that I made last year which previously had an unusual cone shaped 'air intake' style nose that was apparently sacrilegious to some fans lol... It's been sitting on the shelf re-built for quite a while so I finally got round to taking some pics.I called this the Incom T-88 X-wing fighter (long before the Resistance series was shown!), painted in colours favoured by the 'Flame Squadron'... oh and there's an E-wing attack mode too, good for strafing ground targets ;)
  14. The Cave Driller is built with 94 parts. Built for a contest, which contains a amount of max. 100 parts. The Rock Raiders use this vehicle for mining in small caves. It carries a magnet container for storing energy crystals. 01_Cave_Driller by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 02_Cave_Driller by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr Link to Flickr: I hope you like it

    LEGO JAWS MOC

  16. Here is a project that I have been maturing for 4 years and which finally takes shape from this year, inspired by a french comic strip from Arthur De Pins..

    The home of Ole kirk kristiansen

    Hello I created a LEGO project called The Beginning of LEGO History. My project is based on Ole Kirk Kristiansen's house and I built the house for LEGO's 90th anniversary next year. If you like this, you can support the project on LEGO ideas. Share the project with your friends if you like or on social media :) Thanks.
  18. Overseeing transaction of goods --- As a privateer, in times of peace, Captain Scarver spends most of his time hunting sea rats. After his latest hunt around the southern coast of Celestia, Captain Scarver returned to Port Woodhouse with the captured pirate ships and their stolen goods. After most voyages Scarver donates the stolen cargo and ships to the local militias of Corrington settlements, except for certain goods that may prove useful to his endeavours. However on this voyage they fell upon a state of the art Oleon Cutter, flying the black. It is rare to see pirates sailing Royal Navy ships, so Edward and his crew were careful not to sink her. The battle was long and hard as both opponents fought like hell, but eventually Scarver and his crew managed to capture her. Upon returning to Port Woodhouse, Scarver and his crew voted to keep the ship and add her to the fleet. Thus, he handed her to his Quartermaster who is to see her be repaired and riffited with 4 additional guns. In the meanwhile, as per usual, Scarver went to oversee their donation to the garrison in Port Woodhouse. --- I made this little scene while waiting for parts to arrive for my Cutter ship. I wanted to try out @Ayrlego's architecture for Port Woodhouse, while I also thought it could be a good idea to make a little teaser for the ship. The scene is supposed to take place in the courtyard of a fortified warehouse (kind of like something you would see in the game Assassin's Creed Black Flag).

    [MOC] LEGO Eldorado Fortress, redesigned

    “Governor Broadside spent years at his post in Eldorado Fortress, waiting for the expected assault of his nemesis, Captain Redbeard. In his days as Commodore, Broadside was one of the famous few to have turned back Redbeard’s feared naval bombardments, but the notorious Redbeard has been missing for years without a trace. Promoted to Governor but growing old at his post, Broadside has ensured that his fortress is well prepared for any assault – the larder is stocked, the men are rested, and the cannons are loaded. But lately, passing ships have whispered strange new rumors of Redbeard. Tales of a remote island, a stranded ship, a Captain and crew thirsty for revenge setting sail once again… The Governor may be unaware of the secret treasure hidden beneath Eldorado, but he is certain Redbeard will come for Mary Brickless, prisoner of Eldorado for the past five years. Is Eldorado Fortress prepared for whatever threats may come next? Can Broadside return to his role as Commodore and rid the seas of Redbeard, once and for all? Only you can decide!” Eldorado Fortress Introducing Eldorado Fortress, built from 100% authentic LEGO® bricks and the perfect companion to LEGO’s® new Pirates of Barracuda Bay set! Although LEGO® has released some smaller imperial fortresses in the past, none were truly on the scale of LEGO’s® larger castle playsets. The new Pirates of Barracuda Bay set re-inspired us to create a fortress modelled on Caribbean architecture. As you can see, the fortress is named to play on LEGO’s® original Eldorado Fortress (set #6276). The Governor is named after the “Governor Broadside” that shows up in some older LEGO® literature/manuals. The main model uses 2,581 bricks, and the minifigures and accessories add ~150 parts to that. The model features a watchtower, armory, prison, a secret cave with the hidden treasure of Eldorado, a larder, crew’s quarters, Governor’s room, and a harbor area with defensive cannon emplacements. Our personal favorite feature is the curved wall with three cannons overlooking the water! Everything is modular, allowing easy access to all play features. The prison features an ‘exploding’ wall, the cave is connected via a secret passage with retractable wall to the larder, and a trapdoor connects the larder to the crew’s quarters. More importantly, the set includes five spring-loaded cannons that can be positioned anywhere along the fort walls, allowing for quick defense against raiding pirates!

    [MOC] The Donald Duck

    Hello Eurobrickers! This is my second version of Donald duck. Donald Duck can rotate his head and has movable hands My YT video Brickshelf gallery And both versions of Donald duck
  22. There are not many fictional spaceships as recognizable as the x-wing. Because of that, most of us had built one at some point of time. After all, it is both iconic and pretty simple: long, thin nose, four wings on hinges, cockpit somewhere in the middle and long guns on wingtips. It was built so many times it is as boring as it is popular, which is why I never attempted doing it. If not BrickVault, with whom I am cooperating on making models with instructions, I would probably never make my own. Eventually though popular demand made it an obvious choice and so I started. What was initially a build stuck somewhere between one TIE or another, took me about four months to complete, which is huge for such a relatively small ship. Let me present you the finished product first. Because we were not entirely sure which color variant is the best, I ended up making three - this way everybody will have one which fits him! So: are X-Wings simple? I just can't emphasize on how wrong was I. There are so many things that need to be done right. Thin wings. Front fuselage which has no parallel surface and has an annoying stripe which interferes with structural work inside. Rear fuselage which is neither rectangular or hexagonal, it is something else. And don't even get me started on the cockpit situation. LEGO part designers made one cockpit which has good front, but bad back, and then the new one has good back, but bad front. Had they merged the designs into one it would be perfect, and without it we can only pick whether we will have abnormally wide nose section, or abnormally square-looking cockpit. Altough there are many great X-Wing designs in the AFOL world, most notably those from Atlas, Cehnot, Inthert, Mike Psiaki and Dmac, among many others, most have their noses either studded, or with jagged edges. So instead of starting with the wings, I started with the front fuselage, as it was the most difficult part. And after all what can be hard with simple wing-opening mechanism? This was the fist sketch. I had no clue how to join this all, and tried all possible cockpit pieces, but I liked the idea of using hinges to make smooth upper sides of the ship. But since my designs modelled in LDD end up being... uh, not too perfect, I had to move to real bricks, and fast. So immediately after a batch of pieces including the cockpit arrived, I made the real version of the nose. ...yeah, so it does not look like the LDD one, because the LDD one was really bad. This one features a lip I was pretty sure was the standard feature of the x-wing, later I discovered that the lipped version is a hangar model, and miniature model has none of it. Also, I noticed the fuselage is already too high so it will have to be lowered later on. Here it has some of the rear fuselage, and first of many variants of nose tip. So far so good. Except it totally did not hold together, so... I also got a hunch that something odd is going on with the proportions at this stage, but "eeh this is a prototype, I will get back to it later". Having front part more or less done, I started doing the wing gearbox: It worked well enough so far, so I could return to the nose area. It was too high, nose top was too long and some of other proportions were wrong. So I fixed it: The X-wing's cockpit front panel does not line up with top surface of the nose, there is a slight angle change. I wanted to have that, but obviously overdid it badly... it looks sort of vulture'ish here too, due to the nose, doesn't it? There. Much better, isn't it? I added cheese slopes on top of 2x2 slopes behind the canopy so I could make the cockpit lower in relation to rear fuselage. I also made a better nose tip. Even the bottom was shaping up quite nicely. By that time, however, issues with wing mechanism became too apparent. It clogged often, was wobbly because each wing was held only on one technic beam, and tended to detach bottom fuselage panels every time when it was opened. Something had to be done, which meant another major rework. Eventually after about two weeks of tinkering, I maged to find a solution which in short space (6 studs) contains an 2x2 gearbox and two attachment points per wings, with added benefit of entire assembly built sideways which greatly helps with wings stability. What the final model uses for wing mechanism is an evolved version of this mechanism. Notice how the control knob is on the bottom of the ship... With wing core situation solved, I could move on to landing gear, which proven to be super simple but effective. Building, however, is not just about the design itself. Sometimes you have to tend for the workplace as well, because I eventually ended up with such a situation: ...so where is that part? In the apartment I was renting back then, I did not really have enough space for building. Or, anything really. ...so I moved. How often do you move to finish a MOC? :D This was just before the departure. Having the workspace situation resolved, I could get back to work. By that time I also got most of the parts I required to finish the ship, so I made all the components or their placeholders, and pondered why it still felt wrong. It took me a while, but this happened to be caused by rear fuselage. You see... I had it like on the left, while it should be more like the one on the right. Easy to fix? Except because the ship has no internal frame, it is held by the outer parts. So any rework in this area was causing issues everywhere else. I figured out a way. Yup, from that moment on, the tile-to-clip connection is main structural connection of the ship. Basically the idea is that front fuselage attaches to rear fuselage by these areas (and similar on the underside), and they all together "wrap around" the wing structure. It holds together surprisingly well, to the point it ended up being the final solution! This was the version tested by BrickVault. In case of some harder models, and X-Wing totally qualifies, we do an additional verification step to ensure all works. The results of the tests were, if I remember correctly: - landing gear collapses - nose top part cannot be attached properly - angled fuselage sides cannot be angled properly - rear fuselage top part randomly pops off not to mention several issues with the instruction itself. ...and what do you mean R2 doesn't fit? Here during debug of the front cover issue. If you work in IT, you know these dreaded words: "hmm it works for me". Yet for brickvault guys, this connection was not possible because the jumper tile was too deep. The issue, as usual, was caused by a part being placed far away, in this case - under the cockpit. Making instructions introduces entire new class of problems. How often do you debug a MOC? Now, remember what I said about the control gear being installed on the bottom? The idea was that an axle would go through the stand, with a nice knob to spin the gearbox to open/close the wings. Unfortunately though, the force required to open up wings is so high, the axle bent and twisted in a way which made operation through the stand impossible. It surprised me, because turning it with fingers is reasonably easy. This issue I did not solve. The only thing I could do was to move control point from the bottom to the top. This triggered YET ANOTHER F**** REWORK, this time of both the underbody top fuselage panels. I lost count here, but it seems the rear part was redone about 5 times totally, with smaller numerous adjustments during the way. The story came to an end after four months of work, several rebuilds, several totally wrong ideas, and a lot of beer drunk. I hope this wall of text is interesting for someone. Thanks for reading and tell me what you think! ------------ This build was done with collaboration with BrickVault.

  25. To me, the “purist” line is drawn at using fake/custom/3D printed moulds and permanent modification. For many of my custom figures, I make pauldrons and kamas out of paper, and sometimes even torso wrap-around things. I also make “paper decals” (idk) where I would usually just create markings and the like which I use blu-tack to stick onto the figure. As LEGO fans, would you approve of this and/or consider it “purist”?
