    Space Monkey

    ... to go boldly, where no monkey has gone before ... I have always loved those space baseplates. I wouldn't mind if they would be re-released - and I am happy that I got some that are acceptable through BrickLink. This is also on my flickr account.

    [MOC] Saturday Afternoon Pirate Beach

    (Update November 15th) Aloha! as Kabel is missing a decent pirate beach, here's an update: Some of my friends are having cake on the beach: And something that happened to Emmet seems to be happening to Kurigan: Have a nice weekend! - - - orginal post - - - - - - orginal post - - -- - - orginal post - - -- - - orginal post - - -- - - orginal post - - -- - - orginal post - - -- - - orginal post - - -- - - orginal post - - - Ahoy, following my aim to keep the forum alive and active, here's another post which allows me to roughly keep up with my recent posting frequency of 1 MOC per week. Coming out of an experiment of how to create a decent beach design, the beach suddenly found itself crowded - somehow looking interesting. So, here it is, for all you other island builders: The "Saturday Afternoon Pirate Beach": It's not the best day for Emmet: .. but luckily it was just a joke: :pir-grin: Other beings enjoy the beach and the fruit it brings: ... but LOTR-guys definitely have a hard time on PIRATE BEACH: Enjoy, and have a nice weekend, and I would be happy to read your comments. AND KEEP POSTING PIRATE MOCS!!!

    [MOC] Monkeys and Pirate(s) (MOC, OPMOCs, etc)

    Ahoy, I wanted to get back to my beloved monkey-topic. For starters, this is my MOC "Monkey and Pirate" I hope this monkey statue is not too terrifying... Then I have been gathering some information on the field which I would like to share with you, because some guys have done extraordinary work in the field of "Monkeys and Pirates". I have included links when "Other People's MOCs" (OPMOCs) have been referred to (not posting them). [i hope that this is not violating the forum's etiquette.] On Monkey-Driven-Design & Pirates Ever since "6270 Forbidden Island" came out in 1989 monkeys have been a part of the Lego Pirates Theme (even more prominently in "6235 Buried Treasure" also in 1989). http://www.1000stein...ages/6235-1.jpg They have fought for treasure, sailed the seven seas and wreaked havoc wherever possible in search of gold and bananas. This inspired me to my approach of "monkey-driven design" (not to be confused with model-driven design) and I have tried to include monkeys in one way or another in all of my models. But luckily, I am not alone in this. So I would like to take the opportunity to take a look around at who is building dioramas with monkeys in them. One thing that caught my eye sometime back was this creation by Rod Gilles called "In The Temple of the Monkey God": https://www.flickr.c...57629385196613/ It's a bit sinister but excellent nevertheless. (Rod is doing fantastic steam-punk things, really awesome) This was my inspiration for my "The Temple of the Monkey God" http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=86802 Just recently "TAKKATA" has presented a series of MOCs in this very forum, which had monkeys in them and which were fantastic. Unfortunately I have not seen more of TAKKATA. "Monkey Run - Skara Kikos" by TAKKATA http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=98846 "Temple Boom" http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=98449 "The Falls of Skara Kikos" http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=97814 (Maybe I got the sequence wrong) This film was also a perfect example of monkey-pirate interaction: Escape from Sabre Island - A Brickfilm by dastolidigital http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=93968 MESTARI's MOC also has its fair share of monkey inclusion: "[MOC] Small soldiers' outpost" by MESTARI http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=94519 with a very classic feel to it. "[MOC] Sabre Island" by vitreolum http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=98100 has a small monkey on a raft (terrific MOC). "PTC - Yatkuu/6Kyubi6 - The Shark Reef" by YATKUU http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=93211 Shark Reef was built carefully and cleverly and did not forget its monkey. "Monkey Madness PTV-small" by LEGOKING http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=23407 featuring a monkey in a leading role. "[M.O.C.] Monkey Island Minifigures" by LEGO_LEGIS_LEGERE http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=73556 monkey is a "must" in here. "A Pirate Knitting" by PIXELDUDE http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=33956 is so funny. "Pirate Animal Costumes" by FALLENTOMATO http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=24727 is a fair attempts at a custom made monkey custume. "PTC - Captain Nemo/MstrOfPppts" by MSTROFPPPTS http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=93209 features a monkey armed with a pistol. But "Monkey Battle of Passage Fort" by COMMODORE HORNBRICKER http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=29751 features a horde of fiercly fighting primates. A lot of action in here. "Battle for the Fountain of Youth" - by SIMON_S http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=98276 has a small monkey in a tree. This was what I have found to far. Forgive me, the monkey-included MOC-list might not be complete. Coming back to my contributions, I have created "The Flying Monkey" http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=84523 "MOC: Palace Jaune Banane" http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=92916 and recently: "MOC: HMS Royal Monkey" http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=99608 and I hope to continue in that way. My wish for the future is to see some more "Monkey & Pirate" creations here - so, brick on! - edit April 11th 2015 - I found Walter's great contribution, so I need to link it here.

    [MOC] Monkey

    Hello, TLG have put out a creator set allowing to put together a monkey. I was largely disappointed, so I had to create my own version of how a monkey should be: (Eyes can be adjusted ) Your feedback is welcome - I hope you like this monkey as much as I do.

    [MOC] HMS Royal Monkey

    166C Ahoy, today it is my great pleasure to present to you something I find nice and funny: The HMS Royal Monkey. It looks like a normal vessel. but if you take a close look, you will find signs of monkey-driven-design And you will find a few guests that have joined Captain Braunsfeld on his journey. Kurigan, sorry, I don't have the exact torso... The key point, however, is the Royal Monkey himself: :pir_laugh2: (Those of you more interested in historical accurateness might want to look at the lanterns instead. And the rudder is actually working!!!) I had a lot of fun building this. I hope you will be able to enjoy it too! By the way, it takes an awful lot of bricks to build a lego-sky-background... :pir-grin: :pir-grin: I am looking forward to your feedback!

    MOC: The Prince Ian-Lucas

    [pid][/pid] 161C Hello, it's me again. This time I would like to present to you a ship that I've built some time back: The Prince Ian-Lucas. At that point in time I was building ships without knowledge of the existence of Captain Greenhairs Tutorial. So, my approach was to use slopes to make the ship look right. Its a modular build, so I can take off the top elements and allow access to the lower decks. This is the Dutch crew: (in red: Cornelius Drebbel) As you can see I have attempted to make every part of the ship accessible to the crew. This is why I had to spend an extra door here at the rear (and staircases somewhere else, etc.): (that was an earlier picture before the ship was actually finished - pls note the monkey ) Some more views: Overall, the ship turned out to be quite stable, easy to transport and store away. My later attempts have not always had these three qualities. Would I change it now, having advanced in a few areas? Yes, of course My MOCs are never done... One question remains for the experts: What type of ship is that? Is it a galleon? A monster of a sloop? A too small ship of the line?

    MOC: Palace Jaune Banane

    [pid][/pid] 245B Dear all, I am very happy to present to you another example of monkey-driven design: The Palace "Jaune Banane": It is a modular build - heavily inspired by what I have seen in and around Vienna. And I managed to include some monkey statues (which I am really proud of). I managed to include some nice interior work: And it is modular: It is actually not so easy to capture this well: This time the MOC comes without a story. I hope you enjoy it! (I am working on the palace gardens, etc., so there will be additions coming up soon).
  11. This is a fun little experiment of mine that I've been working on for quite a while. Anyone remember the BIONICLE Master Builder Set? Well, I've been exploring the possibility of something similar based on the Hero Factory building system. So far, I've come up with seven models that can be built from seventy-seven pieces. All images link to Flickr: Dog: Monkey: Hawk: Kangaroo: Turtle: Gorilla: Raptor: Each of these models contains between twenty and thirty pieces. The only piece that I used that does not already appear in sets in the correct color is a black rubber whip (61975) which I used for the monkey's tail. Inventory: Anyone think this merits a LEGO Cuusoo proposal? Or is it too much of a long shot?

    The Temple of the Monkey God

    [pid][/pid]238C Hi There, sometime back I had promise to come back with some more "monkey-driven designs". So (drum roll) here it is: The Temple of the Monkey God. :laugh: How did we come up with this? It all started with a few monkey statues that my (older) son and I developed. Then it made sense to find a place for them. This is why you will find three different types of monkey statues. .. and there is a secret treasure hidden within the main statue: (what else could it be?) Actually, I could still combine it with some minifigs from the latest series. As usual, a MOC is never done. I hope you like this - we're working on more monkey stuff! Yours Captain Braunsfeld

    FAPC: Banananaship!

    Take a flight to the most distant galaxy in the Banananaship! Escape human pursuers or take them on with state of the art lasers and technology! Nothing will stop any monkey once he gets his hand on the controls! Dual missiles and reinforced yellow plating insures maximum protection for our little friend! Features detachable front perfect for spying on any pesky animals or humans! Well, this took me longer than I wanted it too, but I'm pretty happy with the result, especially since it's only my second Sci-Fi build! Comments and criticisms are appreciated!

    FAPC: MonkeyPunk

    In the late 50's a team of researchers created a species of hyper-intelligent monkey. These primates, capable of advanced speech, and solving complex logical puzzles, were left in an enclosure in a rocky barren wasteland. The scientist wanted to see if the sapient animals could create a primitive culture without any human influence. The information about this experiment was found over 50 years later in early 2011. Although almost positive about the fact that the monkeys had died out years before, the U.S government sent an expedition to find this "lost monkey civilisation . The results were not what they expected. The monkeys, more adapt to cooperation than us humans, had built an advanced, peaceful civilisation. The humans wondered at the amazing buildings buit on stilts (the monkeys had an unexplainable urge to live high above ground), advanced electronics, and high standard of living. Gigantic farms were built under glass domes, and iron was mined from places humans never knew of. Humanity was shocked. They were jealous of the monkeys' advanced technology, and peaceful ways. They were afraid that the monkeys would break out of the wasteland, and destroy humanity. To prevent this from happening they corrupted the monkeys. Taught them of war and power. Sold them weapons. Told them not to be content, and lust for others wealth. Within a year the monkey town had decayed into a dystopian nightmare. Warlords fought each other. The once beautiful buildings fell into disuse. Crime ruled the streets, and no monkey was happy evermore... The main building. Yes, thats a banana on the billboard. Da Monkee'. My favourite part of the MOC, and the first thing I built! More pics can be seen here Hope you like it!
