  1. Hi everybody, I'd like to show you my lates MOC I created for a ITLug contest. It represent four phases of my life related to LEGO bricks. As the brick made 60, I did 30 years with them It refers strictly to my life, but I assume that many of you can find analogies. Hope you like it, any comment or suggestion is really welcome.
  2. Hi everyone! It's been 6 years since I last visited this amazing Lego site and after resetting my forgotten password, I am now back for the second time round! My name is Aaron and I last posted here in 2008. Back then I really rediscovered my lost childhood love of Lego, and I fell back in love with the shiny little plastic bricks hard! Unfortunately, after a good few months of posting on here and building various unfinished projects, I slowly started to lose interest and once those magical little bricks were tidied away, they have stayed there ever since. I am now living in my own flat with my (ever so understanding) girlfriend, but my countless boxes of Lego are still stored at my parents house (though not for long I'm sure ). Recently I found myself itching to have another go at it. I have just purchased a few bargain sealed Lego City sets from the last few years and should be building them within the next few days (around the daily work grind ). Fun builds with lots of pieces, such as the 4439 Police Heavy-Lift Helicopter for £20.00 and I've just picked up the 4436 Police Patrol Car for only £5.00. Looking at the latest sets, It's amazing how intricate the designs are now, with so many new parts and building techniques implemented. I did find it quite difficult to go through with it and spend my hard earned money, on what most people think as children's small plastic building blocks. But I like to think that by having such a massive interest in Lego as a child, it helped me become who I am today in adult life. I am a very hands on person who is always interested in how things are made and how they work. I do moan a little at how expensive Lego is these days, but I am surprised at how the quality of current Lego products is still so high! I would much rather them keep their quality high, than cut corners or cheapen the bricks. So I understand that for this reason, the prices have to increase with today's economical climate. I am in need for an enjoyable hobby, one where I can really stretch my now dwindling adult imagination. Maybe a hobby that lets you just escape this harsh world you slowly discover as you get older. I have now chosen to buy some Lego, to rediscover some of that enjoyment and imagination I had as a kid. I also hope to interact with other Adult Fans of Lego on these forums, it's been a while since I participated in any social forums online but I know how much fun they can be and especially this one. So I hope to have a good old chat with you lovely people, Lego is an amazing system indeed and it's nice that we can all share our enjoyment of it with others here at the Eurobricks forums. Thank you
  3. Built this about a month ago, put it on Lego ideas a few weeks ago, just thought id share it here! :-) If you'd like to see this as a Lego set, here's the voting link: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/173451 ikoma on Lego Ideas by Guy Smiley :-), on Flickr
  4. One day I went to the natural museum with my family, my wife asked whether I can build some insect with LEGO parts, and the goliathus was picked. I spent 2 days to build it, and for more fun I put it on the photo frame which from IKEA. Let's see how it looks. When it was took out from the frame, it looks like a real insect. Front view Back view, you can see all the studs are removed. The photo frame is from IKEA, Gunnabo, 13x18cm The introduce video Thanks for watching. You can send email to me to buy the instruction via jerryyao77@msn.com

    [MOC] LEGO Life

    An entry for the LEGO Life logo contest on Rebrick. Under each ‘stud’ on the brick, there is an 8×8 minifig scale vignette, in the same theme as the microscale build above it. I tried to represent three of the core themes of LEGO: City, Space, and Castle. This was a very enjoyable build, as I got to dabble in several themes, but it still all came together fairly quickly and easily. Lots more pictures on Brickbuilt Thanks for looking, C&C welcome
  6. A LEGO Nexo Knights app has recently been released on the app store and play store, I saw this opportunity to make a thread about the game. Feel free to talk about anything related to the app. Here's my question, are the Nexo Powers that you get for free in the game included in any official LEGO products?

    Lego and "Depression"

    Hey, this is a different post from me. I recently wrote a blog post where I talked about how lego is helping me a lot with down feelings and was just wondering if anyone can relate to this as well. Here is the post in case you want to read it: http://legovincent.blogspot.de/2016/04/how-lego-helps-me-in-life.html Disclaimer: I did not write this to make people feel sorry for me or to get special attention, I just want to share how for me, lego is much more than just a toy. Thank you for reading. V.

    Updates about me :)

    Hello :) I realized I have not been active in this community a lot lately, mainly due to the fact that my motivation is basically at 0%. Weirdly I have so much free time that I feel down all the time and bored. Suffering the most is my Lego blog as it just started to heat up a bit and I do want to continue with it. Also I want to be more active in this community that has tons of nice people that are awesome :D Anyhow, have a great day fellow afol's http://legovincent.blogspot.de/2016/05/update-time.html

    The Life of A Minifigure

    With the new baby pieces LEGO has produced in 2016, I had to wonder: How do Minifigures age? Besides their torsos and arms cracking, I mean. Do they start as baby figures and then get short legs and then get normal legs and then they're an adult? Or do the babies stay babies forever, the children stay children forever, and the adults stay adults forever? Or perhaps something else entirely. YOU DECIDE! Actually, don't. We'll all just discuss it. It's not for one person to decide.
  10. In this thread you will find my own Classic Space space vessels, exo-bases and ground vehicles. Cosmic Explorer Built in 2012-13 for the Classic Space Supreme Commander, Benny the 1980-something space guy. It came equipped with a pocket for Unikitty during the Battle for Octan Tower. After the battle, this pocket was removed. (Unikitty turned down Benny's offer for a commission to Classic Space command, and has set out as a director actor in Movies & TV. See her latest film, "Johnny Thunder & the Temple of Gloom" for more info.) The area was replaced with a canopy for the crew to see outside from their stations near the Imagination Reactor, while the sensor array was replaced by a four-barrel repeating laser turret. This ship in it's original form (plus it's pilot Benny and his freinds) are featured in The LEGO Movie. Here you can see the inside of the vessel. Their are three seats up front in the main cockpit, and four more seats in the rear compartment. You can also see the rear turret tuned and elevated. It's design was inspired by fighter and bomber airplanes of Earth history. The ship's stats: Ship Name: Cosmic Explorer Model: LL929 “Voyager” class Command Cruiser Manufacturer: Classic Space Shipyards Engines: 3 Mega Imagination Reactors Max Speed: 5,100 MPH Weapons: 4 forward-fixed laser hi-pulse guns & 4 turret-based laser hi-pulse guns Max Hyper Speed: 80% speed of light LDD file for Benny's ssS: http://www.moc-pages...1452610235m.lxf Deep Space Fighters These ships are deep space fighters of the Galaxy-class. Each seat one figure and have enhanced hyper-drive making it nearly as fast as LL-929. (Benny's spaceship) This ship was designed to be a heavily-armed fighter, and features an enclosed cockpit allowing for long distance travel such as from system to system if in an emergency. Here is the cockpit, which can seat 1 pilot figure. The ships' stats are identical for both vessels: Owner: Classic Space Command Model: “Galaxy” class deep space fighter Manufacturer: Classic Space Shipyards Engines: 2 Imagination Reactors Max Speed: 3,100 MPH Weapons: 4 forward-fixed laser hi-pulse guns Max Hyper Speed: 50% speed of light LDD file for the fighter: http://www.mocpages....1415380096m.lxf Benny's Classic Space automobile This car was originally built by Benny to be used to shuttle himself to his work at Classic Space Command HQ and secret master builder meetings, and eventually to his SPACESHIP(!)'s hanger after the end of Octan Corporation hostilities. The ship was not featured in the film made about those events, but nonetheless was seen in the studio parking lot as Benny drove it to play himself in the movie. It currently is stationed on the planet Zonia, where Benny (along with all the other Classic Spacemen) lives. The inside of the car features two seats, opening doors, and steering wheel, among other devices / abilities. The rear of the car features the Classic space logo, identity plates, and double taillights. Statistics for the car: Owner: Benny the 1980-something space guy Model: “Meteor” class vehicle Year built: 1978 Manufacturer: Classic Space Motors Power-plant: V6 Imagination-fueled engine Max Speed: 80 MPH Classic Space security forces' Exo-Terrain Vhicle (ETV) This model was heavily inspired by set 75916: Dilophosaurus Ambush from the Jurassic World sets. I have turned it into a Classic Space vehicle by subtracting most of the features and adding the CS logo to this piece on the hood: http://www.bricklink...sp?P=30363pb021 and a space seat for the driver. The rear of the model features a removable spare tire. I plan on getting two of these jeeps for the space base. Statistics for the jeep: Owner: Classic Space Command Model: “Exo -Terrain Vehicle (ETV) class vehicle Year built: 1988 Manufacturer: Classic Space Motors Power-plant: V8 Imagination-fueled engine Max Speed: 95 MPH LDD file for the jeep: http://www.mocpages....1444615201m.lxf Classic Space ground command / flight control center I was originally inspired by the 2010 CITY set number 3182 (Airport) to make this improved control tower for my Classic Space base MOC. It is supposed to feature Classic Space printing on the blue 4 x 2 slopes, like this: http://www.bricklink...sp?P=30363pb021 The front of the building also features a Classic Space statue, which can either use a Regular white astronaut torso, or the statue torso from Space Police III line. Here you can see the inside of the model, with the second floor and roof being removable from the first floor. On the ground floor is Command and Control, also known as C&C. This is where the ground forces are dispatched and fighter squadrons are launched. It is also where communications are tracked, recorded and, if necessary, relayed to other bases / space vessels / commanders. The second floor is where Benny the 1980-something space guy's office is. it features a desk with telephone and lamp, a bed for those long nights working on battle plans / spaceship designs, and a model space base for when he needs to get away from it all. (the back of the model has blank walls, no details , and as such is not shown) LDD file for the command center model: http://www.moc-pages...1453820529m.lxf Comments, questions, and complaints welcome!

    MOC: Monster

    Last night, my girlfriend told me that the fourth graders she teach, had had an exercise where she described a monster, which they then got to draw and paint. Having heard the description, I decided to do my own interpretation, but (of course) in lego.
  12. Hey all, this is my first post here and my first Lego moc. Lots of firsts. Since the Lego Ideas site can't approve my project, I wanted to share it with some true Lego fans. Please check out the rest of my project pics here: https://www.flickr.c.../133518136@N08/ and like me on Facebook https://www.facebook...646432325635280 - where I'll be posting a lot more Zissou Lego over the next month.

  13. Way back when (around 2010) I designed this ship as a standalone piece for my desk. I spent about $120 USD on Pick A Brick from the online LEGO shop & from 3 Bricklink sellers. (I later found I could have saved a bunch of money by going through Bricklink alone.) The model is in micro scale, is about 2 feet long. Here we see the ship in a side profile. The mini-figure standing on the side is the Captain Edgar Danforth Fuller (or E.D. Fuller for short) We can also see the Grand Staircase's glass dome, which is between funnels two and three. Fictional Background: The RMS Acadia was designed in 1913, but World War One prevented it's construction by Steele & Sons Shipbuilders to start until 1919. The ship was modified from it's original design to burn oil, and was completed in February 1921. The ship could hold 3280 people total, with 1140 being Crew, with 270 being First class, 530 in Second class, and 1340 being the steerage, or Third class. The ship sailed it's maiden voyage in July 1921 from Southampton to New York City. The ship was English, and as such, was immune to American law of Prohibition. The ship took off-season sailings (informally known as Liquor Cruises) around the Atlantic, returning to the port of origin within a couple days. The ship managed to hold a steady service record, and remained relatively full-up until the Great Depression really took hold in 1931. The ship's owners, the Red Star Line, managed to stay financially afloat long enough to get the ship through the worst of the Depression, until the ship was requested by the English Navy as a troop ship in late 1939 for use in World War Two. The Acadia's fancy woodwork was put in storage and the ship was turned into a troop ship relatively quickly. The ship was strafed several times by enemy aircraft during the war, and narrowly missed being torpedoed in 1943, but it survived the war not too much worse for wear. When it was handed back over to Red Star Line, it was given a complete overhaul mechanically and eclectically. The whole ship was rewired, and the oil burning engines converted to diesel. The Acadia's woodwork was painstakingly restored to it's original grandeur, and she was ready for for sailing by 1948, almost a year after being handed back to it's original owners. In thew early '50's the ship began sailing luxury cruises to the Mediterranean from England and the United States, in addition to it's usual scheduled Atlantic crossings. The ship began showing it's age by the late 1960's, when it's original glass dome began to leak badly. A handful of cracks in the reinforced glass caused the ship to be dry-docked, but before it could be fixed the huge dome collapsed in on itself, causing the grand staircase to be heavily damaged. Luckily, the accident happened in the middle of the night, and no one was on board at the time to get hurt by all that broken glass. The ships' dome was replaced, but only because the ship's owners knew of it's heritage and couldn't bear to see the old girl scrapped. (Not to mention it would have cost more to scrap the ship than fix the dome) By 1975, she was last four-stack ship in existence, and the owners were planning the Acadia's 55th Birthday for the next year. The Acadia celebrated July 1st, 1976 as her fifty-fifth birthday, and as part of the celebrations she was given to a preservation group dedicated to keeping the ship sailing as an "ambassador of history", as a peek into the way things were and how the men and women visiting and working on the Acadia went about their lives through each period of this ships stoic history. Many former passengers and crew detailed their experiences on the ship in writing or on film for the beginning of what later became known as The Acadia Living History Museum. Today, the ship features a feature-length film that chronicles the story of the ship and it's many passengers and crew through out the ships commercial and wartime lives. The film is shown in the Second Class movie theater, built into the ship in 1947 after World War Two, flowing seamlessly into the 1920's flavor of the ship. The ship still sails, making stops in New York and London (substituted for Southampton) at least twice a year. The ship from a top-down view. This is Captain Fuller's suit, in case any one wants to know: http://www.bricklink...?P=973pb0294c01 Fictional Statistics: Ship Name: RMS Acadia Ship Type: Atlantic Class Passenger Liner Owner: Red Star Line Ship Built: 1919 – 1921 Capacity: 2140 passengers, 1140 crew (3280 persons total) Lifeboats: 44 boats with 75 people per boat (3300 people total capacity) Builder: Steele & Sons Shipbuilders Propulsion: 24 Boilers, 3 turbines, 3 steel propellers Top Speed: 28.5 Knots Fuel: Diesel (originally Oil) The bridge shown here is in mini-figure scale. It is supposed to be a sized-up version of the one on the actual ship model seen in the other pictures. I haven't built this part of the model in real life yet. Th Acadia's bridge features: -the Ships wheel -dual nautical telegraphs, (those things with the paddles on them near the wheel) -large table with lamp for studying charts and messages -a radar screen (added to the ship in 1947) This is the logo of the Red Star line, original owner of the RMS Acadia ocean liner. LDD file for the ship and the bridge: http://www.mocpages....1425498813m.lxf NOTES: I made the back-story up while posting this model to MOCPages. It is a 100% work of fiction. Any relation to persons, living or dead, is pure coincidence, while most of the events are true. World War One & Two did happen, and some ships were requisitioned for the English Navy as either troop ships (such as the RMS Queen Mary, which was a troop ship during World War Two) or hospital ships. The ship and even the name Acadia is something I made up. Comments, Questions, & complaints welcome!
