  1. This is a discussion for unique lego misprints, mistakes and prototypes. TLG is renowned for its quality bricks, but sometimes a misprint or mistake can slip by, and therefore be worth a lot. As for prototypes, I'm not sure how people acquire them, but maybe they work in the LEGO factory? Please tell me as I would love to have one, but they do cost a lot, as a single helmet piece can cost you a whopping 600 dollars! My heart says yes, but my wallet says no way. Ok, so I found a few listings on eBay and this one seller does seem to have an interesting collection of them. And once again, I'm wondering how he got them. Red Darth Vader Prototype helmet type 2 Type 1 Darth vader helmet Red This guy has a lot https://www.ebay.com/sch/kont4569/m.html?item=153092572672&hash=item23a5074600%3Ag%3AqjUAAOSwtXxbQzLA&_sacat=0&_nkw=lego+prototype&_from=R40&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 This is the place to share about your collection and boast your rare Lego pieces! (Unfortunately I don't have any)
  2. Hello everyone 1- I hope this subject is in the right place. 2- Sorry for my bad english I think you all have at one time or another during a construction, wanted to have a room that does not exist to carry out your project. So, you've probably imagined several over the years. 1- I imagined myself to create several in recent days (others to come) You can find them on Flickr HERE you can react on what you see. 2- Would you like to propose some already, in 3D or other? I opened a group for: - the techniques, - tutorials - new coins 1 month ago on Flickr HERE 3- Do you have any ideas? => Could you describe by embellishing an image that you would like to have? I can try to create on request if my limitation 2D (photoshop) allows it. By the way for your information, I also realized baseplates that are on Flickr. I would like your opinions, your reactions, your proposals ... TYVM Some exemples:
  3. Here are a prototype version of the Acklay and Reek which was made in 2002 and later shown for the 2005 Lego Star Wars Weekend in celebration of Episode 3. They decide to cancel this set because one of them believed "it would not sell well". I searched for any remaining photographs which I could find of the set but I have only found these three. If you have any more available please share. It could be interesting to see the Reek in closer details. Especially to see if it has anything on the tail which I have missed. Here below are all three of the beasts together. (The mini Nexu design was made by me) Finally here is a edited version of the Prototype Acklay which I made using the original design. As you can see it has more mobility to it's limbs, some extra details are added and finally the color is corrected.
  4. Long before the Iron Giant began hurtling towards Rockwell, there was a prototype model, which landed on Earth close to 34 years earlier than the Iron Giant's 1957 landing. They were very similar robots, made by an Ancient race of beings that wanted to gather as much information about the Universe as possible. They first created this prototype model which was made mostly of brass, copper, and iron, but was powered by a highly advanced Fusion reactor that was powered by metals the robot consumed, usually uninhabited asteroids floating through space. The Brass Automaton was armed with a unique staff and like the later Iron Giant, would only fire it's weapon as a self defense mechanism which would only activate as a last resort for self preservation. The Brass Automaton was armed with a detachable staff capable of firing immense power blasts, whereas the Iron giant featured built-in weapons that become visible when seriously threatened. Unlike the Iron Giant, this prototype was not able to re-assemble itself as it had a error in it's programming. In the year 1923, the then un-named Brass Automaton landed in the Pacific Ocean near the long-forgotten Dino Island. It created a tsunami and unhinged the island from the Earth's crust and as such the land began to sink. The robot was first sighted by nearby French sailors, who upon seeing the giant being arise from the water, tried to describe the being the best way they could through their wireless telegraph: they named it the Brass Automaton. Johnny Thunder and his Adventurers crew went looking for this great metal being after saving as many dinosaurs as possible from the sinking primeval island, but never saw it, as it was walking along the seafloor towards the South American coastline to gather information on the dominant beings of Earth, also known as Humans. After staying relatively hidden in various secluded places around the globe for around a year and a half, the Brass Automaton was finished reading the minds off local people for information on humans as a species: Our past, our present as of 1924, our origin, and our many languages, along with defenses, politics, and technology. After gathering all that intelligence, the Brass Automaton headed to the North Pole to transmit the required information to it's home planet using a faster-than-light sub-dimensional beacon. (Basically, a fancy radio) That is just about when a major solar storm hit the Earth, with the radiation hitting the atmosphere of the Earth and scrambling the outgoing signal into nonsense. Now the garbled signal was received by the home base, and as a precaution, the Iron Giant version of the Brass Automaton was dispatched as fast as possible to earth. (That would take it nearly 35 years for it to get there at all possible speed, which would require it to refuel once arriving on Earth, which is why the Iron Giant was at the power plant at the begging of the movie, whereupon it's memory was scrambled by the high-voltage electricity) After sending the garbled message and being struck by lightning as a result of the solar storm, the Brass Automaton was temporarily incapacitated. It was then discovered at the northern tip of Greenland by Dr. Harold Wormwood and brought back in pieces to his stately laboratory mansion in rural Louisiana, where he ran test after test on the alien visitor. By 1925, the mad scientist-type Doctor Wormwood had the resembled robot nearly reassembled, and was preparing to restart it when a Lord Sam Sinister came upon rumors of the robot and wanted it for his own nefarious desires, with Johnny Thunder close on his heels... The Brass Automaton is twice as tall compared to a typical BIONICLE figure, which barely comes up to the Automaton's knees. The Brass Automaton features a powerful staff that was given to it by a race of bio-mechanical beings from the planet Bara Manga around 300,000 years ago. This weapon is called the Staff of Ages, and can focus power drawn from the Brass Automaton's fusion reactor to a form a massive power blast or a more finely-tuned laser beam, among other features. In reality, this is a recolored and modified version of @hachiroku Iron Giant model (as shown directly above). I made it into steampunk colors with a giant staff as a weapon and new, larger head. I am also writing a backstory for the model with inspiration coming from the BIONICLE Generation 1 story-line with the Mata-Nui Robot, the Great Beings and so on. You can see the original model's topic by Hachiroku here, in the sci-fi theme forum.
  5. This is the fourth version of the Joker's Lowrider-inspired car for Bob from the Neo Nexus Force. (a space faction I came up with after the LEGO Universe video game shut down, whose topic can be seen here) I was inspired to create a new front end grille for this car from two newer fender pieces, with one of them upside down to make a unique "O" effect. This very rare car is powered by a turbine, which means it can run on gasoline, diesel, alcohol, paint thinner, and even cheap perfume. It runs very efficiently at high speed, but gets very fuel-hungry at slow speeds, like sitting in bumper-to-bumper City traffic. Luckily for it's owner, Bob, the snowy tundra wastelands offer little time for sitting still, and plenty of space for getting up to very impressive speeds. And if he gets struck in a snowbank, the very high-heat exhaust (which can melt asphalt if stationary too long on City streets!), can easily break the car free with no problem. The rear of the car has a license plate and dual super-hot exhaust. As usual this printed part is missing from the hood. The roof of the car is easily removable to get at the mini-figures seats which allow for figures to sit side-by-side. The spacious opening trunk has plenty of room for luggage and the doors to the cabin area open as well. This LEGO model was partially inspired by the early 1960's Chrysler turbine car (one of the nine left is seen above, but it's not my picture). You can read more about the experimental car at this Wikipedia link on the car. Any thoughts, suggestions, complaints and ideas are always welcome. This car is on the "to be built" list after the current Western project is done. (and when funding allows!)
  6. I have had this helmet for years. Bought it from a seller on Bricklink in the early 2000's. Can't remember who. I also added the red legs, torso, head, and cape. Cool little figure, but, without going into a long drawn out story, it has to go. One sold on Brinklink for a little over $850 in February. I assume, without the rest of the figure. I would like to use that as a starting point and work from there. Make offers! Ask questions!! Need more pics? I am on the Official Eurobricks Straightshooters List. I will also provide user ID and feedback from Brinklink and Ebay if necessary. I would prefer Paypal and offer free shipping to the US. Thanks for looking, Jamie
  7. Hello from France Guys ! I'm Bricks Feeder and it's my first topic on Eurobricks! :) I show you my MOC of the TIE Advanced Prototype (aka The Sith Inquisitor's TIE) seen on the SW Rebels series. I will make some pictures of my advance in the future but for the moment, I give you some videos (of my YouTube Channel) of my prototype on LDD. This MOC is based on the original LEGO set 75082. The "wings" were directly inspired by this forum on Eurobricks (http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index...). I'm trying to build a "cool" Interior of the cockpit. For that point, I'm inspired by the awesome TIE Fighters short film. I'm trying to be "accurate" but it's difficult when you found pictures of a subject with different "shapes" or variations of shape between them. So I based my model on the first appearance of this fighter in the Rebels Show... I made a second version with some upgrades of the articulations of the "wings" to get it stronger. Moreover, I change all the back! I'll continue to work on it. I am not satisfied yet ! I'll show you my advance and if I can, the real one! If you have some ideas or constructive criticisms, share with me please! I want to upgrade my skills! :) Enjoy and have a nice day! P.S. : If you have the time... Check my You Tube Channel! ;)

  9. Hi All, I'm looking for LEGO Prototype figures/pieces (preferably Star Wars but will hear anything out) as well as any other rare LEGO items. I recognize the high cost some of these items command and am willing to pay them. Please shoot me a PM if you have any of these items are know of someone that does! Thanks, Samuel
  10. Hello, I'm making this post to seek evaluation from people who love LEGO or have young children who love LEGO and this seemed like the best place to get accurate and reliable feedback. I have designed a phone case (for the IPhone 6) with the interest of creating further interaction with the LEGO land park; basically the idea of having people go through the park searching for puzzles with their camera through the use of an app, then completing the puzzle by creating a and image on the back of the case using 1x1 flat tiles and showing them to scanners situated all over the park, this would increase consumer flow throughout the park and create a fun challenge for parents and kids alike. (the product would still be expected to be used as a general phone case and would provide fun in a normal day as it provides a very versatile build platform to create from) I know there are some issues with the alignment of the LEGO studs and the Technic pin holes, but this product is still in a prototyping phase so this is understandable. If you have any comments or questions regarding anything to do with the design. (it's aesthetics, manufacture, safety, function. etc). please make a comment below as ANY contributions would be greatly appreciated.

  12. Finished the 816 RX I wet for a bit of futuristic design and I hope to receive some feedback about it. Shall I remove the Mindstorms logo, or it looks good? Photos:
  13. So over at minifigpriceguide I saw this picture of a prototype Cloud City Boba Fett. According to the website owner, it belongs to a collector in France. Now, I can imagine that if the regular Cloud City Boba Fett sells for hundreds of dollars, then this prototype would be insanely expensive, and must be even rarer. I was simply curious as to whether or not anyone here knows more info about this figure or has more pics. It is certainly interesting how it differs from the regular Cloud City Fett.
  14. I have a question to anyone in the community who might know. As many of you know I like to collect non-production parts (or Q-elements) for use in my MOCs. I have three parts that I cannot confirm if they are Lego. Two are octagonal cones that Lego used in the 90s- old grey & blue. And the other is a solid red rocket booster- small size. I have collected many non production parts and there are certain attributes that define them as genuine Lego. Things like a part number, "Lego" molded into it, a common plastic injection mark or bubbles in certain transparent elements. On the particular parts I have mentioned, there are no numbers or "lego". The only thing that makes me wonder is that the colors are spot on with Lego. Any ideas?
  15. Four wheel drive on Lego Technic cars with small wheels is hard to realize, as they become relatively too wide (which is ugly) and the ground clearance is also compromised. The problem then is: how to get the same grip back with only rear wheel drive? Then you need to push something 'extra' in the back of your already crammed, small nice-looking vehicle... This concept is an approach to keep this 'something extra' as small as possible while giving awesome and unexpected grip to the car. (At least, I was astonished by what it achieved!) Instead of typing a lot, I've put it all into a video with the theory of how it all works at the back of the video to let the 7 billion minus 1000 viewers that are not interested into more advanced Technic stuff experience how it works in practice on a 2 cm (that is: inchy) thick ice floor. As for the car, it is built from Power Functions spares as all my L-motors (which have quickly become the main workhorse for every Technic builder) are ehm... in use. That is why you find me using a geared up XL motor, which gave me memories of the good old times when the poor knob wheel parts splattered around. Sharp images of the car and mechanism explanation can be found on: http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=564319. On MocPages (beware, there is a piece of code there that simply destroys anything such as image resolution on .png files...) http://www.moc-pages.../moc.php/428881 Video: I finally have found PovRay so (with many thanks to all those who make that software) I can present a high-quality render:
  16. After watching some youtube videos I noticed some trucks had some weird suspension on them... It looked something like this: So naturally I started investigating and found that this is a type of setup called a twin beam suspension. So I tried to replicate one in Lego. To explain the concept behind this hybrid, here's a series of stages leading from live axle suspension to the double beam setup: In order: Yellow setup is a live axle Red setup represent the change from dependent suspesnion to independent suspension By extending the half axle lengths (blue) we get a lower change in wheel angle relative to the drive surface (camber) And finally by extending the swing arms PASS the center point we get a double beam suspension And here's a version with drive and steering: So what are the advantages compared to the live axle? - Its independent, which as name suggest aloows the wheel to work independent from each other - Lower unsprung weight - Less moving parts - to keep a live axle in place you need several linkages. Here the axle pivots around one central point And disadvantages? - Complex design, the axles have to be made to travel pass each other without interfering. - A need for a CV joint which needs to allow the axle to slide in and out - Not as robust - Hard to implement portal gears without making the wheels slide sideways excessively - Camber changes are still present I also made a video explanation of the principe. You can skip to 4:30 to see the final version in action: So the final question. Is it useful? Fo me as far as the Lego version goes....no. The disadvantages outweigh any possible advantages. Also lately I have been working a lot on long travel double wishbone suspension which outperform any other previous suspension system in almost all categories. The only usefulness in this design I see is realism, if you are building a replica of a truck that has such suspnesion. Because I want to hear your opinion, here's the LDD link to the suspension, so you can try to make your version and improve upon my prototype: Download prototype here

    MOC: Octan One LMP Race Car

    I think it's time for me to start posting some finished LEGO work again, it's been a while Here's my latest creation - an LMP-style race car. Inspired by both the 60053 (which I found too stubby) and the upcoming Speed Champions line. It can sit minifigs upright. Since I'll probably buy some of the Speed Champions stuff I am contemplating moving my future car MOCs to full 6-wide body, as well. Also, it started off in LDD. Here's my POV-Ray render (and my current wallpaper) Here's the whole album with the full-size images! https://www.flickr.c...57650317055727/ Thanks for looking! I am looking for other CITY/Friends cars to modify. I gotta get my feet warm again before I post some of my bigger stuff!

  19. Hi, This is my LMP1 car, that I made for the current TechLUG Technic contest. The full review (and much, much more pictures) is here: http://bj51creations...c-lmp1-car.html. Please leave a comment. Hope you enjoy.
  20. I got set 75082 mainly for the Inquisitor and the Imperial Officer minifigs, but I decided to give the build a go today since I heard a lot of positive comments on it. I have to say that the build includes good ideas for the TIE fuselage that are definitive improvements to how other system scale TIEs have been built in the past. Once finished, I went in and modified the build quite a bit to get it closer to the proportions of the craft as seen in the show. This meant I had to get rid of the shooter play feature in order to remove a one plate wide section from the lower part of the fuselage. I also made sure the circular cockpit screen is centered and that the lower half of the fuselage mirrors the angled bricks of the top half. I also got rid of most dark bley bricks and replaced them with their light grey counterparts. Lastly, I made the four characteristic panels one stud higher and removed a one plate wide area from the center build that attaches the panels to the fuselage. I also built a stand for the model in the form of a mini-diorama that depicts the scene from the Rebels episode Empire Day in which the TIE Advanced Prototype was first presented as the climax of an imperial parade: Enjoy!

    Mistika prototypes closer to 2002 Toa?

    Do we have images of the prototypes of the Toa Mistika that were supposedly closer to the 2002 Toa Nuva?
