  1. Hello everyone, as i didn't see any Mods topic for this set, i decided to start it myself, and to start, i would like to share with you the LDD file for the official set (not sure if there was one already), there are some parts missing and some pieces are not fully connected (could i have used developer mode to solve this? yes, but for some reason i decided just to place apart the pieces i couldn't fit in), here is the model: Missing parts: -x4 24118 Panels in Dark Purple (Brick-built and grouped in the model) -x11 6167281 (I didn't add any substitute) -x1 6187734 (The rope) LDD file:http://bricksafe.com/files/imanol/42069/42069.lxf And next is my modifications for this set so far, the first thing that i wanted to do was to put wheels and tires, and because this is an snow-themed set, i decided to put tumbler tires, and i knew that these tires didn't look good in those very wide axles, with these tires the vehicle would look silly, but after narrowing the axle a little bit, i think it is looking like an authentic snow expedition vehicle (it even looks like an JLTV from the sides), i also changed some colors, but is just a test (the model is still WIP): The goal is XL-Motor for drive, Servo Motor for steering and M or L-Motor for the winch (and possibly some lights): I hope you like it, i will try to make more improvements, and i am looking forward to see more modifications by any other member, have happy modding.
  2. Selling 8157, preferably to US and Canada. No parts missing, but some stickers on nose missing. Outfitted with custom white wheels by efferman on Shapeways. Rebuilt this week, so no dust. No box or instructions. Priced at $115, and additional shipping fee (roughly 15$ with fedex) Pics:
  3. Hello everybody and nice to meet you, I'm a new member on Eurobricks, I presented myself a few days ago here! Today I try to open my first thread, and doing so I would like to show you those creations of mine. They are not exactly mocs, as they are based on official sets, but they are sort of modifications I considered necessary to improve the original Lego models. Down here you can find the pictures of the Tie Fighter, a couple of posts below you can see my modded U-wing! So, let's start: [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr There are more modifications than you can probably see at a first look. First of all, the wings: black stripes have been placed on the inner side of the wings, and the outer black plates has been replaced with tiles. Inner and outer stripes has practically the same angle, so they blend easily in the model. Horizontal lines are realized by using 1x2 jumpers, diagonal lines with longer tiles, and are kept in place only with a 1x1 plate that allows the rotation of the elements. They are not very sturdy, but are more than enough if your plan is to show the model only on the pedestal. There were also some dbg plates in the wing panels, I replaced them with lbg to uniform the color. Moving to the cockpit, a big part of the curves have been redesigned to improve the sphere effect. Lego designers were clearly forced to create a playable solid model (and to include the horrible springload shooters), limitation I didn't have, so I could replace some pieces to improve the geometries and collocate the red parts in a more trusty way. I also used two small red stickers to create the right angle, but it hasn't been a so good idea, probably. The front printed round element has been rotate by 90 degrees to blend its joint with the red section. In the future I will probably replace the whole piece with another withound the joint (does it exist?) and in a different color, because I don't like the choice to use a transparent red piece. Another modified part is the joint of the cockpit with the wings, where I used some grill 1x2 tiles instead of simple 1x2 black tiles, as the real model shows far more lines than the actual set. Also the antenna has been simplified with smaller pieces to respect the right proportion with the ship. [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr The rear of the model has been totally redesigned, as you can see in the previous pictures. The engines on the side are definitely bigger and more protruding than the set's ones. Take a look at the end of the post to see a comparison with a toy model. I'm not sure about the red wake I included, but it's definitely nice! There were also some visible technic parts that have been covered with black tiles. In the following pictures you can see the shape of the edge lines, more rounded both in the lower... [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr ...and upper side: [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr To achieve that, on the upper side of the cockpit I replaced part of the plates with tiles or slopes because I personally don't like visible studs. Lastly, here it is the pedestal I created with spare technic parts. It is not adjustable as the one you can find in the UCS model, but keeps the fighter in a good angled position very nice to be exposed. The minifig will be replaced with the special forces pilot as soon as I will buy the new Kylo Ren's Tie Silencer. Another possibility would be to place, insted of the pilot, the characters who used this ship in the movie, Poe Dameron and Finn in the stormtrooper suit. [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr Thanks for reading, if you want to leave a comment you're welcome! I will listen carefully to every advice and possible improvement you wanna share! p.s.: Down here, instead, you can find a couple of pictures of the toy model I used as reference and the actual Lego set:
  4. Well, so now we have seen some reviews of the new LEGO models, and modifications and improvements of the other ones, and i think its time for the 42055, so lets start: My first modifications would be improve the force of the bucket, because as far i could see, the bucket is driven by the chains of the conveyor belt, so even an small object is able to stop it (like Sariel showed in his review), i would put an axle going from the gearbox directly to the bucket, or even a motor behind it, so there would not be too much power loss. Another modification i would like to do is in the tracks, i would like to put an small gearbox in the lower frame (i think there is enough space there), to select between some driving types, maybe something like a subtractor gearbox. And for the last, i would improve the turning system of the lower conveyor belt, as we can see in the review of Sariel, there is an small backlash in the system when the excavator changes the turning direction. So post any more idea or suggestion you have for this huge and impressive set.
  5. I really love the new Ninjago Movie Sets,and two of my first Sets were the City Chase and Master Falls. They were Fun little Builds,but i always thought could do more with them. The first Set i remodelled was the City Chase,especially that Green Grocer Stall.I turned it into a Building with a Shop on the Ground Level and added a few more Details.The Building is only a few Studs deep because i wanted it to work like a Background.I tried my Best to incorporate some asian architectural Vibe,not really sure if i accomplished that,it`s up to you to decide. 20170825_171726 20170825_171739 20170825_171748 20170825_171759 20170825_171816 The second Set i modified was the "Master Falls" Set with the hanging Rope Bridge.The left Side was a tad bit boring and bland for my Taste and so i started adding a few Bricks.....until it turned out into a creepy looking Entrance to a Cave or something (just think of all the Skull shaped Entries to secret Caves and Hideouts you have seen in TV). 20170825_172332 20170825_172340 Oh,i also found a nice Place for the Polybag Dragon... 20170825_172352 20170825_172404 20170825_172411 20170825_172425 20170825_172458 Hope you like my Modifications,Comments are always welcome.
  6. Here's a question - does anyone have an idea how the red and white striped wheels were done on this MOC? I *think* the white elements are custom stickers, but would love confirmation.... Cheers
  7. I was hesitant to buy the Imperial Assault Hovertank for some time but I caved and finally did a week ago. Its a great little vehicle in the movie, I actually think it blends really well into the Imperial War machine. For thirty dollars USD its a great value, but this isnt a review. Even as good as the set is there is a lot of room for improvement. What stuck out to me most prevalently is the top hatch, whereas in the movie its just a little hatch in the set its the entire cockpit's roof that opens. I know Lego's version is the hover tank variant but I really want to squeeze in tracks. I also want to rework the cockpit to fit three figures and if at all possible make another hatch for the spotter to stick his head out. Last year there was a wonderful thread full of fantastic modifications to the AT-ST released this past fall. While the AT-ST is a far more known and beloved part of Star Wars then the GAVw "Occupier, I would love to open this thread up to any modifications the community has. If you've modified the Imperial Tank, please, feel free to post your pictures. Lets try and improve an already great set to the best it can be.
  8. Hey guys, I finished my QAR (4195) Mods and added specific descriptions to each of the photos. I didn't change much on the whole of the ship (unlike my mods for the 10210 IF, which you can see Here if you like). However, I did make some fairly extensive mods to the sterncastle while trying my best to keep the look and feel of the ship the same. Also I would like to make a disclosure: My mods to the QAR (and just about any mods I make to sets) are not designed to be the best or to rival any of your guy's MOC level designs (they never could! :P). I instead try to focus on the spirit of the set itself. I like to add elements that enhance the play factor, embellishments, overall asthetic, or (if I am feeling bold) include what the set was "supposed" to entail. I say this not to as any sort of insult, but simply because I sometimes see relatively simple additions that seem to make the set feel much more "alive". Now that that's out of the way, here's what I modded/ added :P Widened the captain's cabin by 4 studs. Added a wall and door to enclose the captain's cabin. Added a bed to the captain's cabin. Added a desk and the shelf from 4191 to the captain's cabin. Added ladders to the cabin door "deck" and another bone ladder to the poop deck. Added stern chase cannons (optional). Other miscellaneous embellishments. Anyways, let me know what you think! PS- I wasn't smart enough to figure out how to add the photos here in the thread, but I might be able to be convinced to try it again :P.
  9. First off, I just want to say this set is apparently VERY popular, (and for very good reason!) as I tried in May to get one and the LEGO store was out for a long while. I finally got the second-to-last one on double points VIP points day on the 7th of this month. The following post is not a perfect analysis, but I thought I'd show off what I did to the contents of this set as no reviews are out yet.... though this is NOT a review! This vessel is a slightly modified set 30152,( Weekend Getaways). I removed the tall poles serving as radio transmitters / receivers plus I added a surplus reverse tile to the bridge's computer to keep it stable. The inside is the same as the stock set, with cup rack, stove, sink, tables and chairs. The rear porch and front bedroom are also the same as designed. The ship is incredibly light - more than my similar sized Adventurers tugboat and I would highly recommend it for it's play-ability and cool looks. The rear awning just oozes coolness, and is the one spot where I screwed up. (The fabric holes are just big enough to go onto the pins, not between them and the frame as I originally thought. I nearly tore it taking it apart again, but luckily I did not!) This model was made from leftover parts of set the C model of 30152 (Weekend Getaways) and several pieces from my own LEGO collection. I modified the original design to have four lights for navigation and a gray engine instead of a white one as used in the set. The model seats one figure and has barely enough room for a single standing passenger. ....that's about all I have in regards to this set comments-wise. As always, Thoughts, Comments, Questions and or Complaints are welcome, but please try to be kind! Thanks again for reading, Murdoch17
  10. Here are a few examples of what you can do with the Volvo EW160E (when it's in stores within the next few weeks!) A trailer: Forklift: Broader/Twin Tyres (preferably those from 8235 Front End Loader for example!) Grappling Claw Small Bucket Scoop Anything else you could imagine? Regards, Ryan J Smith.
  11. So I was quite displeased with how lazily Lego attached the turrets to the gunship. They didn't have much range of motion, took up space in the troop compartment, and were just kinda lame. So I fixed them to be much more poseable, movie accurate, and you can use them with a door mod that closes the troop doors all the way. I also changed a few other things, but those are more minor and not the focus of this topic. Front view Side view, here you can see they still work with closed doors Inside view of how it connects, the only thing is that I don't have 2 more 2x1x2 slopes, so I substituted Movie picture, so you can see what I mean by more accurate They can now fire backwards if you wish LDD picture of how it is built, each brick is a different color for clarity And one overall picture again to finish it out I hope these imgur links work out, this is my first time posting here. Also would this post need tags in the title?
  12. Skull Scorpio Mods

    Skull Scorpio is an underrated set in my opinion. Sure it has its flaws but I really liked it. So I've come up with a few alternate designs that you can use to improve your Skull Scorpio set. Gallery when public: http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=560545 Here is an Lxf file of all the different builds. I will update with 2015 bionicle parts if/when LDD Updates. For now I just use replacements in the LDD version. http://www.brickshel...scorpio_mod.lxf First are two different leg designs. One is more like the original and one is similar to LOSS. Both sets of legs have posability. These pictures also show off the new torso I made for Skull Scorpio. http://www.brickshel...rpio_legs_1.jpg http://www.brickshel...rpio_legs_2.jpg http://www.brickshel...rpio_legs_3.jpg http://www.brickshel...rpio_legs_4.jpg http://www.brickshel...pio_legs_5.jpg. http://www.brickshel...rpio_legs_6.jpg http://www.brickshel...rpio_legs_7.jpg http://www.brickshel...rpio_legs_8.jpg http://www.brickshel...rpio_legs_9.jpg http://www.brickshel...pio_legs_10.jpg Next are 3 different claw designs. One of them being the original just without the transparent orange. The third one was slightly inspired by TheDesuComplex http://www.brickshel...pio_claws_1.jpg http://www.brickshel...pio_claws_2.jpg http://www.brickshel...pio_claws_3.jpg Next is two different shoulder designs. One with the arms out and one that brings the arms in close like the original set http://www.brickshel...rpio_arms_1.jpg http://www.brickshel...rpio_arms_2.jpg Last up is the tail. I had a few alternate designs in mind until I came up with these four. The first one is the original just modified to be a bit smaller. http://www.brickshel...rpio_tail_1.jpg The second one was inspired by LoganMcOwen's one http://www.brickshel...rpio_tail_2.jpg The third one is just a standard scorpion tail using the skull villain sword http://www.brickshel...rpio_tail_3.jpg The last one is my favorite. Its a slightly modified version of the one TheScorpionStrike did. Here is his video of how the tail function works And the picture of my version http://www.brickshel...rpio_tail_4.jpg The final pic is how I have my Skull Scorpion displayed just without Pohutu's drained mask . I added that in for effect http://www.brickshel...scorpio_mod.jpg
  13. The following creations were made with help from about five people, not including myself. Please see each model for more details. The steam switcher was originally a model by Scotnick, which had no working pistons and was colored white and red. I borrowed some pistons from one of HunterDobbs' engines, and now have added updated saddle tanks courtesy of Canvas Rails / TF Twitch. (Canvas made the original 0-4-0 design where the tank originated, which TF Twitch recreated, this leading to the adding of it to this 0-6-0.) Oh, and by the way: the gears on the steamer are standing in for six Big Ben Bricks medium steam engine drivers. (four flanged, two blind) The rear of the engine features warp-around stripe design. The number of the engine goes on the four studs, while BRS goes on the three studs. The diesel was designed by Flickr member "RIZING!" and modified by me to be little taller and come in tan. I also removed some parts that are unavailable in black. The diesel could be motorized with either 9V or PF motors and associated items. Also, I must say I really like the stairs at both ends of the engine that RIZING! designed. The rear of the switcher now has three tail-lights. The number of the engine goes on the four studs, while the three studs is reserved for the letters BRS. I will be building these locos sometime early next year.
  14. Since many of us became owners of 41999 BOSS crawler, this thread became actual. 99% modifications will be about body design and color, since there is nothing new we can do with chassis. I am waiting for pickups "El camino" style, wagons (like effe mentioned), new lowered chassis and other mods. I will update first post from time to time to make database of mods with link to posts. May be we can make our unofficial challenge with voting? What do you think? I have an idea what we can do with the best models from voting:) thats a surprise. First we have to,fill this topic with cool creations;)
  15. EB Pirates, After replaying 2009's POTC Lego video game, I've decided to rebuild 10210 with a more realistic design. I will be adding various modules and recoloring much of the ship. This is a WIP; any suggestions appreciated! https://www.dropbox....hip (10210).lxf
  16. Hi guys I decided to modify my 8258. First i added some of Designer Han's modifications. Then, I extended the truck by adding a 3rd axle to the end. The overall length of the truck got increased to 2 feet because of this. Next I moved onto the crane. I took out the string and added it to a removable winch at the rear of the truck. Then, i extended the crane. This took some time and many tries because the crane could not take the weight of the extension. Because of the extension the crane can reach a max height of 3 feet and can extend sideways 2 feet. I also added many cosmetic things like opening doors and a closed roof Fully extended With the unimog for size comparision Winch out Hope you like it! Please give me suggestions for improvement. More photos can be found on my Bricksafe account http://bricksafe.com/pages/RishabN Also sorry for the bad pics. I was using my smartphone for them
  17. Hi, This topic is for posting modifications of 41999. I am planning to do lot of them. 1. The first is pimped with the help of Chrome Block City BL store. You can buy parts used in this modifications here http://www.bricklink.com/store.asp?p=Aurimax
  18. Hello good people of Eurobricks! I have recently purchased the DC Superheroes Funhouse Escape set, but it has not yet arrived. It looks to be a very nice set, with lots of potential of modding. What I am wondering is this; has anyone found or carried out any interesting modifications on the set that I could perhaps replicate on my copy? I'm asking about enlargements, editions and reductions to make an already nice set better to look at and better to play () with. I don't expect tutorials or anything like that - although that would be great - simply ideas would be fine. Does anyone have any?
