  1. Mini LEGO

    Triple changer MOC

    This is my first bad guy character. I think its back looks really cool. How about you? :) I used red, black and blue colors to make it look stronger than previous robots. First of all it can transform into flight vehicle. The vehicle has 2 of forms - normal and hyper mode. And it can transform into marine vehicle also. Check this video to more detailed information!

    [MOC] Fean Walker

    Hello Eurobricks! Here I present you a walker I made for my techno-fantasy project. It belongs to a technomagically advanced race called feans. Feanerys was once a prosperous planet inhabited by peaceful people. However, everything has changed when the armies of demons and their undead minions appeared. The feans desperately fought for years in forests and fungal swamps of Feanerys until their Queen decided to open a portal to another world and to leave the doomed homeland. And now they arrived on a new planet inhabited by humans, elves, dwarves and other races. They should unite with local population to make a last stand against the legions of Hell that are about to conquer the entire universe. Fean walkers were developed during the demon invasion on Feanerys and were based on civilian transport. Back in their world, they strode across forests and mushroom swamps and made sudden strikes at the invaders. Now one of these walkers serves in the squad of remaining survivors led by the Queen herself. The walker is painted in pastel pink and purple colors which are traditional for people of Feanerys: Its legs can turn and lift up: At the base of the walker there is a technomagical reactor which supplies the energy. The walker is armed with two cannons which fire ball-like projectiles: Within the projectiles there is hot plasma which is held by antithermal shell and powerful electromagical fields: Upon impact, the shell is torn apart, unleashing destruction on the target - for example - this giant undead spider: A fean pilot controls her walker with a control panel: The cockpit is protected by a windscreen, aided by technomagical force fields on the sides. The empty cockpit with a comfortable seat: The engine is located right behind the cockpit: Thank you for watching and reading! I hope you like this MOC! A bit more photos can be seen on my Flickr!

    [C-model] Yoda's Mech (alternate build 75168)

    I got Yoda's Jedi Starfighter a while ago as a gift from a friend. I normally make c-models of Technic sets, so initially I wasn't sure what to do with this after building the main model (other than a Tulip!). This set has a range of Technic pieces so it was familiar but also a nice change. There no ball joints that are usually associated with Lego mechs but I thought I could still manage a range of motions. I built the frame first using the Technic pieces before adding the decoration. In the end I managed to create knee, hip and shoulder joints and the model is reasonably stable and pose-able. The Mech is equipped with missile launchers, force blasters and can transform into a flying mode, allowing Yoda to soar over rough terrain. It can crouch down for easy access to the cockpit.I quickly settled on the design for the feet and arms which shaped the way the build turned out. The knee and hip joints were revised a couple of times before settling on the current version. The wings are actually an important part of the model to ensure it remains balanced.

    Review: 7317 Aero Tube Hangar

    Hello Eurobricks! Today I present you the review of an unusual, very playable and exciting old LEGO set - the Aero Tube Hangar. 01 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Set Name: Aero Tube Hangar Set Number: 7317 Year of Release: 2001 Number of Pieces: 706 Number of Minifigures: 5 (all Martian) Price: $ 90.00 ($ 0.13 per brick) Life on Mars was a short-lived, but interesting LEGO Space theme. It explored the world of Martians, who are surprisingly friendly to human astronauts, which is rather unusual for LEGO and science fiction in general. The Aero Tube Hangar is the main base of the Martians. It was the dream of my childhood, but I got this set only in 2013, when I was already an AFOL. So, let's get started. The Box The main box is large, what fits this set. The front side depicts the Aero Tube Hangar in all its glory: 02 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr On the back side the functions of the set are shown: 03 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Old-type boxes with flip covers are great for storage: Box by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Different parts of the set were sorted into three additional boxes which are not cool as the main one, but useful: 04 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Instruction Booklet The instructions start with the same image as seen on the box: 05 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Next there are the minifigures (note the misspelling of Arcturus) and the hypersleds with a warning: 06 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The first model to assemble is the mech: 07 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Note that this is an old instruction, and there is no list of required parts on each step. The last pages show how to connect the tubes and how to use them and some ads (I will put them under a spoiler): This set also has a small advertising booklet: 13 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr There are sets from other series on another side: 14 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Unfortunately, almost all that themes (Alpha Team, Studios and LoM itself) didn't live to this day. Only Star Wars do. Minifigures This set includes five minifigures. All of them are Martians, and there are no humans: 15 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr These Martians are, very much like Blacks from Harry Potter, named after different stars and constellations. Perhaps their names sound differently in Martian language, and here the human equivalents are given. Riegel (note the misspelling - the star is called Rigel) is the leader of Martian people and the general of the Aero Tube Hangar. He does not like laziness and disorder. His favourite food is space slugs. Unlike other Martians, he has a different skin tone and wears some sign (maybe honorific) on his chest. Cassiopeia is the daughter of Riegel. She does not look like her father, but very likely looks like her mother. Later she visited Earth with the austronauts. Mizar is a Martian technician. He wears something like a gas mask. Vega is a scientist who specializes in excavation. He likes sandwiches. Arcturus is a spy from another tribe of Martians which tries to still energy-rich biodium ore from the Hangar. In 1930s he was the leader of Martians, and his invasion of Earth and subsequent defeat were described by Orson Welles. All these figures are exclusive except Vega (who also appeared in 7316, 1195 and 7320) and Mizar (who also appeared in 7321). The Martians have the same bodies and hands with Trade Federation battle droids: 16 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Except they are sturdier due to different legs and (in my case) shorter use. The Martians move through the aero tubes using hypersleds molded especially for them: 17 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The white hypersled glows in the dark. Mech This small mech is used for scouting and defense: 47 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The mech's limbs are very mobile, which is rather good for early LEGO walkers: 48 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The only flaw is the lack of knee joints: 49 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The right hand holds a cannon to repel enemies, and the left hand has a hook to lift meteorites: 50 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The cockpit is open and has a holder for a Martian pilot, and a printed control panel: 51 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Flyer Another vehicle in this set is a flyer (or convertiplane, to be precise). It looks similar to Scorpion from James Cameron's Avatar and Banshee from Starcraft II. 55 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The propeller engines rotate freely: 53 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The pilot is interestingly attached to the cockpit - only their arm is attached to a lever which is connected to one of the flyer's cannons: 52 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Transportation Now it's the time to review the most noteworthy feature of this set. The Martians can be transported through aero tubes using this pump: 42 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The pump is one very big part with some adjustments. It looks like some futuristic storage house or power plant. The black upper part, which is made of rubber, can be rotated to shange the direction of air flow. The aero tubes are flexible, transparent and not perfectly round. They should be plugged into purple solid connectors very tightly, so they will be disconnected with a click: 43 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr This system was used again in two sets from Mars Mission line (7690 and 7691), but there the tubes were orange and human-built. And the aliens were hostile and didn't come from Mars, so this was a completely different theme. Unfortunately, humans (or other non-Martian minifigures) cannot ride or even get into the tubes - their arms are too large: 44 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Mizar needs to get to the red mech bay. He lies in a hypersled at the main station: 18 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr To suck him into the tube, we should rotate the upper part of the pump counterclockwise until it stops and then squeeze it: 19 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Now the Martian can be seen within the tube: 20 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Then, we remove a stopper and place the tube in the required direction using gears and the steering wheel: 21 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr 22 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr There is another fork on Mizar's way, and here we also should set a course by moving the tubes: 23 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The stopper is removed: 24 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr And then the tube can be moved on rails: 25 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The drawback of this process is that the supports are constantly shifting and can hang in air. Next we rotate the pump clockwise and slam it. Now the air pushes the hypersled from the rube, and Mizar rides to his destination. 26 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr 27 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr That's it! Mizar has arrived and is ready to work! 28 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr 29 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Now Riegel must lead an excavation expedition, and he prepares to depart: 30 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr But wait... He is stuck within the tube - probably due to his medal: 31 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr In reality there is nothing to do with the medal. Sometimes Martians get stuck in tubes and cannot be launched. Nevertheless, the construction is made very soundly. We turn the pump counterclockwise, suck Riegel into the tube and place it to the left side: 32 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Next we turn the pump clockwise, push the Martian ruler forward, and he is now ready to lead the expedition: 33 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Buildings Let's take a closer look at the hangar buildings. Here is the biggest one: 34 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The "umbrellas" with tools and control panels are attached to the sides via bridges: 35 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr At the top there is a tower from which Riegel oversees his domain: 36 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The flyer can be hung on axles: 54 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr The tower holds a turning crane which is used to put meteorites to the site for further dissection and processing: 37 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr This meteorite contains biodium - a substance used by Martians as energy source. They collect meteorites especially to obtain biodium: 38 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr One purple "umbrella" (or "mushroom" if you like it more) has some control panels: 39 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr These Martians should be really cold resistant - they walk bare-handed and bare-headed in the open air at -50 degrees Celsius (or -58 Fahrenheit). Under the second "umbrella" they store their equipment, which unfortunately does not suit their hands at all: 40 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr 41 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Walkie-talkies (there are two of them!) and circular saws are common, but the grey wrench is a valuable acquisition. The aero tubes lead to mech bays: 45 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Each is painted in colors of different Martian mechs. The blue one corresponds to the heavily weaponized Red Planet Protector (7313), and the pinkish-red one - to the Recon Mech RP (7314). The light-grey studs are used to connect the mechs. It should be noted that the entire Life on Mars theme is rich in colors and non-standard parts. It had the first appearances of rare "sand" colors, such as sand purple, sand red, sand green and sand blue. Unfortunately, only two last colors are still produced nowadays. The bays can be disconnected from the tube ports: 46 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr This set has only two bays, but three ports. The third port is supposed to be connected with a tan bay coming in 7316 - the Excavation Searcher. In conclusion, I will show the extra parts of the set: differently colored droid arms (both Martian and mechanic), another Riegel's medal and transparent studs: 56 by Farseer Eldar, on Flickr Pros/Cons Pros: + Tubes + Tubes + TUBES!!! + Rare colors + Non-standard parts + Martians + Mech and flyer + No stickers! Cons: - Martians sometimes get stuck in tubes - Supports not always stand firm - Tubes are not compatible with traditional minifigures - Primitive build - Not so many Martians - No humans Thank you for reading! And what can you say about this set?
  5. My entry to Legacy Contest, new version of 9448 Samurai Mech. It has been made as an official Legacy set, 70665 THE Samurai Mech, but the retake felt inferior compared to original. I wanted to enhance the samurai armour feel of the original's silhouette, keeping some key elements like round, kabuto-like cockpit, spinner crown on chest, cowcatcher shoulder pads with cannons and the weapons, while re-imaginin completely the blocky legs and making the helmet more helmet-like. I felt actual grim face on the cockpit would look imposing and unsettling on a huge mech, striking fear to enemies. The hinged cockpit opens, revealing Samurai X piloting the mech. Her katana is stored under the mech's plate skirt armour. And yes, the mech has knee joints. Thanks for watching and thanks to Peppermint_M for organizing this inspiring contest! -Eero/Pate-keetongu
  6. Hello, welcome to another one of my M.O.C.s, It was originally meant to be my 300th post but I was off, anyway let us begin. This time we have something different, instead of something entirely original I was inspired by an already existent part of set. That being the small Skeleton Mech from the Ninjago Day of the Departed set, 70592 Salvege M.E.C. Here's the original for comparison; The torso had some slight changes with a revamped rib-cage utilizing the Exo-force arms with barbs inserted instead of the awkward skeleton arm. The back lost it's formerly uncovered, bland grey block with a printed skulkin symbol and slop pieces Starting with his arms, his upper arms has black armor slope pieces. The forearm also has slight armor, His hands are arguably the biggest change loosing the rather inflexible exo-arms with three fingers, The middle one still uses the Exo-arms with the same silver, dark blades Another major change is his legs, Now they utilize more bony pieces. And the legs have been given the fabulously hard to pull off, KNEES! Yes I know quite the hard thing to grasp. The feet are wider to help support the Mech even the original had small feet for it's size and thus was very front heavy, sorry for the colors, didn't have a one-by-two plate in black. Now for a quick look at the custom Skulkin I made for this M.O.C. combines in my opinion, the best of the original Skulkin, The DotD, and Legacy Skulkin, Here's a size comparison of The Skulkin Mech with a similar size And of course the final pic is the obligatory Gali comparison pic
  7. Though ever vigilant, the threat of the Mutant Lizards was getting to be too much for Shadow, Digger, Viper, and Specs. Will the new rookie Chunk, with his experimental new Dino-fighting machine, the Magma Tanker, be enough to turn the tides of battle..? Reverse shot Something I've had lying around for a while now inspired by the theme fusion round of last year's Bio-cup. Kind of a mix of Dino Attack, Power Miners, and Bionicle. Special thanks to Chubbybots for the brilliant leg design.
  8. I really love the 2019 Ninjago Legacy sets, but the Samurai Mech is sadly an exception.Not many details, little articulation and not much to look at. I bought the set anyway because i like the minifigures and i planned on beefing this thing up a little bit. Have a look at the new Samurai Mech with improved articulation and more details. Like the original, i got inspired by the iconic samurai armor. The skeleton of the mech made from the mech frame piece (introduced with the Nexo Knights Battle Suits) and Mixels balljoints as limbs. These are covered with various layers of bricks to make it look like a heavy armored samurai. Because of the somewhat bulky arms and legs, articulation is still a bit limited but the mech can be posed without problems and it´s well balanced.

    [MOC] Red Robot

    Hi everybody, We built this little robot/mecha, hope you'll like it:
  10. In this review we will be taking a look at D.Va & Reinhardt, or as I like to call it, the tank pack! Every good team composition in Overwatch should include at least two tank heroes, and this set gives you just that! About Overwatch For those who are unfamiliar with Overwatch, click below to get a brief summary of what it is: Set Number: 75973 Name: D.Va & Reinhardt Theme: Overwatch Year of Release: 2019 Pieces: 455 Minifigs: 2 Price: £34.99 / $39.99 / 39.99€ Links: S@H Brickset Bricklink S@H description: The Box The box has the usual Overwatch styling and shows Reinhardt and D.Va in action in Numbani which is kind of a random choice for a location since neither of these heroes has any personal connection to this map, but I guess it doesn't matter since any hero can appear on any map in the game. The back of the box shows the two tank heroes striking poses in the middle of Kings Row. Again, this is a location that they don't have much connection to, except that Reinhardt was present during Tracer's first Overwatch mission here once. There are name tags for both of them and the image has a very processed look to it with glimmering light reflecting off their armor. The set info and a URL to the Overwatch product page on Lego.com are also present. The top of the box has the set name in five different languages, an ad for the Lego Life app, and 1:1 scale images of the minifigs. The bottom of the box has choking hazard warnings in many different languages. On one side of the box there is a render of the minifigs where D.Va is doing her iconic shooting-while-somersaulting pose. The other side just has some copyright information. Contents Inside the box you will find three numbered bags, two instruction booklets (one for each tank) and a sticker sheet with a whooping 19 stickers. Instructions The first pages of the instructions show you how to build the set using the numbered bag system and how to download digital instructions using the Lego Life app, but the set is currently not available on there, so it won't work yet. Here is a random instructions page. The instructions are pretty clear and the different shades of gray parts are easy to differentiate. There are several of these large click-hingers and every time you put one of them together it shows you the word "click" in seven different languages. Notable Parts There quite a few parts of note in this set! Thanks to D.Va, we get several curved parts in pink that didn't exist in this color before, including the new gun mold. It's kind of a shame that these will all be covered in stickers by the end of the build. We also get a 1x2 panel and curved windscreen in classic trans-green which should make retro space MOCers quite happy. Other interesting parts include new molds for Reinhardt's shoulder armor, 1x1 brackets, unprinted gray BB-8 heads, and that 1x1 round tile with the Overwatch logo printed on it that appears in a few of these sets. Minifigs We only get two minifigs in this set, but they are quite excellent figs. Reinhardt Wilhelm was one of the first Overwatch members and also served as one of the Crusaders, a German military order of modern knights, during the Omnic Crisis. He has a larger than life persona and loves to fight for honor and glory. His minifig is basically a smaller version of his power armor and comes with the Overwatch medal that was given to him by his mentor Alderich Von Adler when he passed away and asked Reinhardt to join Overwatch in his place. Also, the lower half of his large rocket hammer can be reconfigured into a smaller, minifig-scale version for his minifig to hold which is pretty neat. He has a great new helmet mold and some detailed printing on his torso, but his legs are just plain silver. D.Va a.k.a. Hana Song is a very different kind of person. She's a young superstar and former pro gamer who now uses her skills to protect her home of South Korea in a mech suit. She is usually very cheery, but the trauma of experiencing war at such a young age gets to her sometimes. Her minifig looks absolutely adorable. She has a great new hairpiece with her headset molded onto it and her head comes with a "winky face" on one side and a face with a chewing gum bubble on the other. Her torso printing extends nicely down to her legs and she gets a pink version of the new gun mold with no add-ons to represent her Light Gun which works pretty well. There's some nice detail on the sides of their new headgear as well. I really like the gunmetal color and pink stripe on D.Va's headset. The figs look great from the back, too, as Reinhardt has some detailed back printing and D.Va's hair flows down her back beautifully. D.Va has so back printing, too, which you can see in the photo below. You can also see both of their alternate faces here. While Reinhardt has the visor for his helmet printed on one side, he has his unmasked face on the other and he comes with a white hairpiece to complete the look. This is a nice addition, although I don't think it captures Reinhardt's swept-back hair very well. It looks more like the hairstyle that he had when he was younger. The Build You start the build by putting together the first part of Reinhardt's power armor. The first bag contains his minifig and the parts for his armor's torso and legs. Similar to the two Hulkbuster armors that have been released, the torso is constructed laying on its back. It uses a lot of SNOT for both shaping and keeping it together. Here is the completed torso. Next you build the legs and attach them to the torso. This is what you have at the end of the first section: It's hammer time! The second bag contains the parts for Reinhardt's arms and rocket hammer. Once you "arm" Reinhardt, his armor is finished. His hands have clips on their palms so that he can hold his rocket hammer securely. Here he is in all of his (honor and) glory! The parts for D.Va's mech are not split up like Reinhardt's and are contained in a single large bag. And no, I didn't accidentally open the bag from a Lego Friends set; that's just how much pink there is in D.Va's mech. The cockpit for D.Va's mech is very different from Reinhardt's as it is essentially a box covered in brackets and built onto SNOT hips. Very unusual. The limbs of this mech are much smaller than those of Reinhardt's armor and are therefore built fairly quickly. A few building steps (and about a dozen stickers ) later, the mech is finished. Spare Parts The spare parts consist of the usual assortment of small pin, plates, and tiles, including an extra Overwatch medal. The Completed Set Once completed, both mechs look great. Reinhardt's armor looks a tad chunky, but I think they did alright considering the scale. D.Va's mech on the other hand is just gorgeous with its popping colors and smooth bubbly shape! Both characters are pretty spot-on if you compare them to the images from the game below. My only gripe with Reinhardt is that he is missing the recognizable orange glowing ring on his chest which could have easily been fixed with the inclusion of another sticker, but oh well. D.Va's mech has a bunny face on top of its cockpit where there is none in the game, and the window is not as organically shaped or even in one piece, but I don't think a better solution exists, so I think they did as good a job on it as they could without a new mold. Looking at their backs, Reinhardt's rocket engine seems to be too low and doesn't look as good as I had hoped. D.Va on the other hand looks quite good. She has two thrusters on her back that are mounted on ball joints so that they can be pointed in many different directions. On his left forearm, Reinhardt carries his lion head shaped shield emitter which looks alright, although all the details are represented by stickers. D.Va's fusion cannons have stud shooters at the front which is a clever way of adding playability while creating an excuse for the designers to not try to come up with a solution for a 3-barrel gun which would have been very difficult at this scale. One thing that I must criticize about D.Va's mech, though, is that it's a bit front-heavy and its toes don't really touch the ground, so it tends to fall on its face if it stands on an uneven surface. Play Features Speaking of playability, these mechs pretty fun to pose, especially D.Va's. Since her mech's arms are mounted on Mixel joints, they can assume all kinds of poses. Her legs are pretty posable too, although there are small black bars sticking out of the side of the hips which prevent you from lifting the legs up any further than they are in their default position. This is done so that the mech doesn't bend down inadvertently. Reinhardt is a bit more limited in movement. His elbows are constructed in a way that don't allow him to extend his arms out further than 135 degrees for some reason, so they're always at an angle, and his left arm can't even be fully retracted either since the shield emitter collides with the shoulder armor. Also, since he can't turn his elbows or wrists, he can't hold his rocket hammer with two hands unfortunately. However, unlike D.Va, his leg and shoulder movement is completely unrestricted. The shoulder pads are mounted on clip hinges so that they lift up when you lift Reinhardt's arms, although you will need to manually push them back down afterwards. Neither mech has any knee or hip posability, but that's been the norm for many years now, so there's no use complaining about it. Still, it's fun swinging Reinhardt's rocket hammer around and trying to recreate emotes from the game. Reinhardt's armor has a U-shaped piece with hinges on top of it that keeps the minifig from falling out and can be lifted up to slot him in and out of his armor. D.Va's mech has a hatch in the back just like in the source material and you can insert her minifig through here. The windscreen at the front can split open as well, even though it's not supposed to be able to do that. Unfortunately, D.Va can't actually grip the joysticks that control her mech and just lays loosely inside the cockpit, although it is possible to somewhat fix her in place by squeezing her hands in between the joysticks. It works well enough, but a more secure connection would have been nice. Ratings Design: 4/5 - The designers did a great job capturing the likeness of these two tank heroes at this scale, especially D.Va. I feel they could have done a slightly better job on Reinhardt, though, especially his back. Build: 4/5 - I like building mechs because they involve so much SNOT, joints, and interesting angles, and this set gives me two of them, so I'm happy, although there isn't anything too different from other mechs. The large amount of small stickers is annoying though. Minifigs: 5/5 - 2 Minifigs is a bit low for a set of this size, but the two we get are excellent. Plus points for the extra hairpiece for Reinhardt. Playability: 3/5 - Pretty standard posability for mechs plus stud shooters for D.Va. Parts: 5/5 - Lots of new parts in cool colors including some new molds. Price: 5/5 - 8.8 cents per piece seems very fair, especially with all the new molds and recolors. Overall: 4/5 - If you're a fan of D.Va and Reinhardt or mechs in general, this set will hit the spot for you. You get two great minifigs and lots of useful new parts for a fairly low price. I just wish Reinhardt would have been a bit better designed and more poseable. I guess that "precision German engineering" that he's always talking about is not what it's cracked up to be. Still, a fun set and a great addition to any Overwatch collection. Thanks for reading and please check out my other Overwatch reviews!

Oh, and if you're an Overwatch player, shoot me a PM with your player name so that we can play some games together! Love, O.Ky Fun Fact: If you're the kind of toxic player who writes "GG EZ" in the chat in Overwatch, it automatically gets replaced by a random humorous line such as this one. It's even funnier if you imagine that it's the character they're playing who says those things.
  11. Hi all! I've recently finished a pair of mechs. Normally I would post two threads, but these belong together. The idea was to make a versatile frame which could serve as basis for multiple different mobile suits, which would help save time with designing complicated body components such as the cockpit and articulated waist (more on that later). In the end, I'm a little skeptical if the cockpit is actually suitable for different add-ons beyond simple colour swaps. In any case, the design uses pretty common parts which are available in many different colours. For the moment, I'm satisfied with my M-tron and Ice Planet variations, but I wouldn't rule out more colour swaps in the future. Now without further ado, let's get to the pics: General Overview It's no secret that OXON III, which I made last year (see topic), was the go-to reference for these new mechs. I adopted its angular design language, and partially copied its lower arms, legs and hands. I was also aiming for the same size as OXON, but with a great reduction in weight, which I succeeded in. The Ice Planet FOXX was constructed first, although the differences between the two are minor. Functions & Features Not much to discover here, just an opening cockpit. Any mobile suit or mecha should suit a pilot in my opinion, so it's there. Interior detail is absent, though. No hidden canons in the shoulders that OXON had, either. Most of the assets are to be found in the other departments. Articulation This is where the the main innovations were made. First of all, there is front to back waist articulation. The upper torso can raise up, come down, lean a bit backward and lean quite a lot forward, over the hips. No side to side movement or twisting of the torso. I wanted to try to my hand at functional waist actuators. I couldn't figure out a cylinder-bar construction, which would allow for independent 'pushing and pulling' on the upper torso. Instead, mine are a fixed length, so I made the distance to the torso (in place of their individual length) variable. They are both connected to a block that slides up and down the crotch (is groin or pelvis a more correct term?). This is done with 1x4 bricks with inset and 1x2 'slider plates', but it doesn't add friction. There's a technic ball joint in the spine and together with two pairs of small ball joints in the actuators there is enough friction (most of the time) to keep the torso in the pose you want it to be in. In addition, I made a number of smaller improvements. In general, the limits of what the joints can bear are exceeded less easily due to reduced weight compared to OXON. The neck follows the 'floating head' design from X-RAY³ (topic here), rather than a more humaniod ball-socket connection. It has more points of articulation and is able to look up much further, which is useful when the torso is facing the ground. Furthermore, the shoulders are less restricted in their outward movement, and made more simplified the ankle stabilizers. Interaction Mechs are more fun together, I tested it for you! Thanks for looking! C&C appreciated!

    [MOC] Unicorn Alpha + Instructions

    I recently started building small robots and just completed my first instructions video. I think i got some inspiration from Gundam RX0 for this one. This mech is quite robust, very posable and awesome! (or at least cute i hope xD) It comes with few accessories that can be turned into guns/wings and attached into different places. Build tutorial Some pictures
  13. I can´t be the only one who looks at pictures of upcoming and new Lego sets and thinks about details that could have been better or changed....and then you start building your own. Well, this is basically what happened when i saw the new 2019 Ninjago Samurai Mech.A simple little build where most parts are slapped against a single 2x8 (or longer) plate as a backbone. A bit stiff and void of much details is that little mech,isn´t it? Well,i fired up LDD and tried making a version that´s similar in size but comes with a bit or articulation and details. Ninjago - Samurai X Mech-1 I used the versatile and easy to use Nexo Knights mech suit frame and build a small Samurai Mech around it.Notable parts of the original will be reused (including the decorated pieces). My version also has a bit more articulation,especially in the legs.Balljoint points are at the hip,the knee and the connection to the feet, and each foot can move the front half of the foot a bit and has some small adjustable rear "toes" Ninjago - Samurai X Mech What do you guys think of my version? Any advice or things you would change?

    [MOC] Mr. Freeze Armor / Mech Suit

    Hi Guys, Today, I show you a MOC I made yesterday. I didn't want to work on my bigger MOCs in progress so I tried to make a new armor / Mech suit for Mr. Freeze for my big project of next year (2019)... I let you watch the showcase video. Inspirations : The Jawbreaker by Golplayswithlego (https://www.flickr.com/photos/137434519@N08/) Free PDF Instructions and Part list available on Rebrickable : https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-19428/BricksFeeder/mr-freeze-armor-mech-suit/#comments Let me know in comment what you think about! See you soon!
  15. Uh oh, watch out! Blacktron is at it again!
  16. Hi! After I got Yoda's Jedi Starfighter and the Republic Fighter Tank I felt these were two good sets to mash together into a Mech MOC. I present to you the Republic Fighter Mech: I used quite a lot of the parts from these two sets, but obviously also additional parts that I had at hand. 20181009_Lego Star Wars Mech MOC_04 by Maranar bricks, on Flickr Including the cockpit for a clone trooper: Link to my Flickr album of this MOC: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmtx5gWU An instructions tutorial video will follow in the near future. I hope you like it! I am open for critique and suggestions to make it better! Greetings Maranar PS: The instruction video is online and can be found in the newer post.

    Strategic StarHound

    My latest MOC is the Strategic StarHound: This is a Futuron mech based on the old Strategic Pursuer. https://brickset.com/sets/6848-1/Strategic-Pursuer I basically made a bigger version. The arms, legs, and red floodlights (is that what they are?) are all poseable. Hopefully I can add some more pictures later. Hope you all like it.

    Hello Lego Fans!

    Hi, my name is Rafael and I am from Germany. I got out of my Dark Ages a couple months ago and want to become a contributing member of the community. This forum seems awesome for that! I am now 34 and still have fond memories of playing with Legos as a kid. The best christmas was when I got the Fire Breathing Castle. This was so much fun. But I also liked the space theme a lot. Lego was the best toy ever, due to the possibilities it presented. It's funny how most of us get sidetracked with other things just to realize later how awesome it still is. I still like to get sets and build them at least once, and except maybe for the odd really awesome set, I will keep it displayed for some time. But ultimately it's all about taking it apart and building something new out of it. I really like to build alternate MOCs from just one set. It limits the amount of possibilities, sure, but also makes it challenging and one has to think of potentially new ways of building something, compared to having all the pieces at disposal. But obviously completely free MOCs using everything thats possible are awesome too. Haven't done anything big so far, but I am sure that time will come! Right now I am working on a Harry Potter themed MOC for a Halloween event, in which I show a scene from my Hogwarts RPG campaign. My three players are all first years at Hogwarts in 1984 and of course found their way into the Forbidden Forest! ;) But usually I am leaning towards creating Scifi-themed MOCs, like Mechs and Spaceships. Especially looking into a Lego-based tabletop game called Mobile Frame Zero and its spaceship spin-off Intercept Orbit right now. And for that matter I kinda thought that I wanted not only to sit alone (or my fiance) and put bricks together, but actually share my creations and hopefully add fun to other people's lifes as well. So I started a youtube channel sharing tutorial videos of my MOCs, as well as other related Lego topics, like Vlogs and Reviews! Please check out my youtube channel if you like, Maranar bricks: http://bit.ly/maranarbricks There is also a Flickr page: http://bit.ly/2xik2g0 Greetings! Maranar / Rafael

    [MOC] Mobile suit X-RAY³

    X-RAY³ Mobile Suit I'm back with another mech! The head takes after OXON, but overall I went with a more beastly vibe, somewhat inspired by Horizon Zero Dawn. I chose yellow because I had never really used it as a main colour before and for its association with danger and toxicity. Without further ado, let's get into the pictures and some backstory: X-RAY³ is a special assault-type mobile suit. It is a vicious firestarter, designed for aggressive surprise attacks that plunge the enemy into chaos. While rampaging with its multi-compound chemical blasters, its various sensory systems gather as much data within enemy territory as possible, before the main forces arrive. The multi-compound blasters are like miniature chemical plants, producing a range of combustibles, acids and noxious gasses. Opening hatches: LIDAR imaging sensors, cockpit and fuel cell compartment. The fearless adrenaline junkie that pilots X-RAY. And that's it! I particularly enjoyed doing the chicken legs (with mechanical claws!) and head. The shoulders were challenging, I wanted to get those 45-year-old dual-moulded (?) doors in. The spinal neck was cool to do, but unfortunately the head pops off quite frequently when I try to pose it. I'm really happy with how the blasters turned out - it took lots of trial and error - although I wish they would have as much detail on the inside as the outside, since that side is exposed a lot when the blasters are facing outwards. On the whole, I like it very much. I'm already planning the next mobile suit in the line! Thanks for looking, I hope you like it! C&C always welcome!
  24. It's sonic... The Doctor (Doctor Who) Hello Eurobricks again! Let me introduce my new MOC related to Warhammer 40000 universe - the battle between the Aeldari and the Chaos Sonic Dreadnought Clamorion: The photos of this work are stored in my Flickr album. Follow me if you liked the MOC. The High Farseer of Ermyaris (the character from my Xenoarchaeologist photo stories) was exiled from his own craftworld for friendship with inferior human species and joined Ynnari - the new Aeldari movement dedicated to summoning of Ynnead, the god of the dead who can destroy dark god Slaanesh. The Farseer was looking for the fifth and last of the Crone Swords, powerful weapons which can bring Ynnead to the mortal world. And the treads of fate brought him to a planet in the Eye of Terror known as Atherakhia. There, among the warp-mutated plants and the white ruins of ancient Aeldari Empire, the Farseer and his loyal warriors tried to find this crucial artifact, not willing to stay in that Chaos-infested world for long. But soon he was ambushed by Chaos Space Marines from Clamorion the Yeller's warband. They wanted to slay the Aeldari to please their twisted patron, Slaanesh... The full view of the MOC: It consists of three parts: Clamorion the Sonic Dreadnought, the Noise Marine maxifigure and the ancient Aeldari ruins in a death world where the battle occurred. The main character - Clamorion the Yeller, the Sonic Dreadnought of Slaanesh: 10000 years ago Clamorion was a skillful warrior from the Emperor's Children Legion of human Space Marines. Later he fell to Chaos with his fellow battle-brothers and pledged to Slaanesh, the dark god of forbidden pleasures who killed the majority of Aeldari race. Due to his great martial skills, he was among the first who held the Kakophoni, the prototypes of modern Emperor's Children sonic weaponry. But during the Isstvan V Drop Site Massacre Clamorion was betrayed by Lord Commander Eidolon out of jealousy and grievously wounded by his orders. Then, he was imprisoned in a Dreadnought sarcophagus, and his life was prolonged by advanced life support systems. For Clamorion, his fate was worse than death. He was stripped of his feelings and could no more hear the magnificent sounds of is sonic weapons and enjoy the screams of his enemies. He literally became a slave to Eidolon and other non-crippled marines. Clamorion was locked in a hangar and the Emperor's Children released him during important battles, only to imprison him again. Moreover, the Warp slowly began mutating and twisting his body, and though he didn't infuse with his sarcophagus, becoming a Helbrute, his eyes were covered by flesh and his mouth became very big and able to make sinister screams. Hopefully, Clamorion's slavery didn't last for long. He managed to escape from the spaceship where he was held. And after the Horus Heresy, this maddened Dreadnought assembled a warband of Chaos Space Marines from Emperor's Children who didn't want to serve Eidolon and other commanders. Now Clamorion lives only for two purposes - to avenge those who betrayed him and to please Slaanesh, hoping to return his feelings... Clamorion is a standard Ferrum Infernus-pattern Dreadnought painted black and pink - these are colors of post-Heresy Emperor's Children: The prototype of this MOC is an old Forge World Sonic Dreadnought: Thankfully, Clamorion's flesh didn't grow into the adamantium sarcophagus. Only his large mouth protrudes from his helmet, the mouth that yells inhuman screams during battles: Clamorion's shoulders are decorated with shining grids and the Mark of Slaanesh. There are the heavy flamer and the sensors which help him to navigate in battle, under his bulky, boxy body. His right arm has a twin blastmaster: It is a heavy variant of a standard Noise Marine sonic blaster and a weapon which creates horrific sonic waves that can rip internal organs. Two barrels of the blastmaster: For close combat Clamorion uses a power weapon in his left arm: His arms are very mobile: On his roof, smoke launchers (in the middle) and doom sirens (on the sides) are placed: The doom sirens amplify Clamorion's terrible voice, making it really deadly for enemies. On his back the engine is placed: Unlike the original Warhammer 40000 model, Clamorion has only two exhaust pipes, but they are chrome! The chains replace short wires and suit the aesthetics of Chaos and Slaanesh well. The Dreadnought stands on mighty hydraulic legs: Some pistons can be seen from behind: The Dreadnought can make some (anti)heroic poses: The chrome is shining (it's not CGI): Clamorion leads his own warband of Noise Marines. Since the Dreadnought was intended to be true-scale, and the Space Marines are taller than an average human or Aeldari, I decided to make a Noise Marine maxifigure: The Noise Marine holds a sonic blaster. The chain is a "wire" connecting the weapon with the marine's pauldron. The Noise Marines miniatures made by Games Workshop: Height comparison - an Aeldari, a Noise Marine and a Dreadnought: The side view of the Noise Marine: He wears an iconic backpack that powers servo-drives of his power armour: On a top of the backpack there are doom sirens like those on Dreadnought's roof. The Noise Marine without his weapon: This particular Noise Marine is called Nefaros and joined Clamorion's warband after the betrayal of other Emperor's Children. The Aeldari of Craftworld Ermyaris are represented by traditional minifigures. From left to right: Howling Banshees Exarch Eyla, the Farseer (he haven't been using his name for a long time), his Gyrinx (a psychic cat familiar) Murzinx and Ranger Moyaz: They all are characters from Xenoarchaeologist stories. Eyla is equipped with canon Banshee Mask which works very much like Slaaneshi doom sirens and armed with power sword of deceased Autarch Erestril and a shuriken pistol. The Farseer holds a Singing Spear and a shuriken pistol too. Ranger Moyaz prefers his sniper long-rifle. The same characters, albeit Eyla doesn't wear her helmet: The ruins where the battle took place: The word Atherakhia means destruction in Aeldari language and suits this forsaken world very well. The millennia spent in Warp changed forever its nature, and plants and animals became weird and deadly. And among that colorful ruins, the inlets of white ancient Aeldari ruins are scattereed, and in these ruins the Farseer was looking the lost Crone Sword. This part of the MOC was inspired by the piece of terrain produced by Games Workshop: The sculpture made like an Aedari rune towers over the ruins: Once majestic buildings are now destroyed: The green-and-red grass is inhabited by deadly spiders and other dangerous animals: The back view of the ruins: The review of the MOC is over, and here is a small story. The Farseer, Eyla and Moyaz walked carefully in the ruins, attempting to find clues leading to the Crone Sword: Danger found them very quickly - the Aeldari were ambushed by Chaos Space Marines. "I WILL BRING YOUR SOULS TO SLAANESH!!! RRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!" The Aeldari engaged in battle with the servants of their mortal enemy. The Farseer clashed with Sonic Dreadnoight Clamorion, and Exarch Eyla fought with Noise Marine Nefaros: The Farseer distracted the Dreadnought, simultaneously guarding his fellow Aeldari from sonic weapons with psychic powers: Moyaz took cover in ruins, aiming the Dreadnought's vulnerable parts: Eyla fought Nefaros in close combat, not allowing him to use his sonic blaster: And Clamorion activated his heavy flamer but the Farseer and Murzinx evaded his flames: And suddenly the Dreadnought impaled the Farseer in his chest: "BEHOLD, SLAANESH!!! I OFFER YOUR A SACRIFICE!!!!!" The Farseer was dead. He fell on the ruined wraithbone square. Murzinx looked sadly at his fallen master. But soon the Farseer's head began to glow... And he appeared on a ruined wall behind Clamorion's back! The Farseer created a psychic illusion to deceive his enemy and prepared to strike with his Singing Spear and to cast Eldritch Storm! Te battle continued. Emboldened by their Farseer's "resurrection", the Aeldari stroke the Chaos Marines with renewed vigor... Thank you for watching and reading! P.S. No Hogwarts was harmed in the making of this MOC. Almost.
  25. Some years ago my friend gifted me Bionicle set 8984 , and I had no idea what to do with it's bulky parts until I had enough pretty red and black brichs that I didn't use in other mocs. Espesially I like that three-leaf piece from one of goblin's plants, I wanted to have nice use of it. Also mecha MOCers like ChybbyBot inspired me very much, I wanted to try to make similar big creature and I had two fun evenings building this one :) To make a story behind I think this beast was builded by goblins for their king to fight Dragon Queen. But she is okay about it because good forces always win! :)
