  1. Well, I sort of forgot to post this here, so here you go, all rovers I made for FebRovery 2024: FebRovery 2024 by Ids de Jong, on Flickr For the Story, lets start at the beginning: Aboard the Spearhead: Jim: Has anyone seen Keko? I can't seem to find him. Bart Seeker: That Robot, no haven't seen him. Duncan: No haven't seen Keko either. MAGS: Keko is no longer on board, last signal was found on the planet below, 24h ago. Jim: I'm going to look for Keko. Duncan: You can use the new rover, it's parked in the back, the blue one. Bart: I don't trust it one bit, Viva go with Jim. Viva: Okay captain. Jim Spaceborn: The Search for Keko by Ids de Jong, on Flickr Day 1: The search for Keko has started. Viva: Where are we going to look for Keko? Jim: Let's just start driving to the last known coordinates. Viva: So, this is the new rover Duncan prepared? Jim: Yeah, looks like it, it was the blue one, I heard it was based on an older single seater design. Day 2: The search for Keko continues. Jim and Viva arrive at the last known location, but the only thing they find is a single spaceman on an antique rover searching for energy crystals. Whatever Keko was doing here, would it have something to do with those crystals? Day 3: Yesterday, Jim and Viva didn't get a great clue, maybe something related to an energy crystals. While planning their next move, they come across Max Greebles in his clean looking rover. Apparently the bounty hunter wouldn't mind looking for Keko. Max: I'll find him dead or in pieces! For only 20.000 credits. Jim: I rather would like to find Keko in one piece and alive if possible. Max: No can do, mate, not if you add another 10.000 credits. Viva: Let's go Jim, I don't think we can come to an agreement here. Day 4: The search continues, Jim and Viva are just taking a brake when a striking coloured rover passes by. Jim: Look at that. Viva: Looks like they also made a smaller rover for Xanad II, after the prototype testing was done for the bigger one. Jim: Oh, I didn't know that, anyway I think we need some kind of plan where to look for Keko. Viva: I agree, maybe we need someone who can tell us something about those energy crystals. Day 5: While searching for energy crystal experts, Jim and Viva see a suspicious looking rover. When they look, one of the astronauts in white steps forward and asks them to go away, apparently they are busy with some kind of experiment. Jim: These Whitetron guys are not the most friendly it seems. Viva: Yeah, let's go Jim. Day 6: Jim and Viva finally found some crystal experts, but after arriving on the planet, they didn't realize they also had to go to the bottom of the sea floor. Jim: Would Keko have been here though? Viva: I don't think so, I'm not sure many robots would be found this deep under water and still work like normal. Day 7: After that under water adventure, Jim and Viva were glad to be back on solid ground. Today, they asked around and found an experimental rover, the large crystal detector rover with foldable radio dish. With a special resonance frequency, large crystal deposits can be detected. Could it be used to detect Keko? Jim: So you can detect large deposits of crystal with this rover? Viva: Looks like it. Jim: Maybe we can use it somehow to plan our next move. Day 8: Continuing to the next destination, Jim and Viva have been ordered to stop when trying to cross a landing pad. Apparently it is being cleaned with special equipment after a chase, they also see Max Greebles in his rover quickly disappearing in the distance. Day 9: When arriving at a location with a strong crystal deposit reading, Jim and Viva meet a strange green alien in an equally strange rover. Jim: Did you see a grey robot? Strange Alien: Ksss, taaas, kraaa. Viva: Eh, I'm not sure I got that... Alien: Ksss, taaas, kraaa. Jim: Yeah, we don't understand that. Another alien behind them: Hello. When Jim and Viva turn around a friendly looking fella greeted them. Friendly Alien: We saw some people in black carrying a grey robot at another crystal deposit some days ago. Jim: Thank you for the info, we need to look for some people in black then? Viva: Yeah, let's do that. Day 10: Having heard they should look out for people in black, today Jim and Viva come across a weird looking rover. Jim: Look at that rover, what is that? Viva: It appears to be some kind of dragon rover, maybe it's used for a special event? Day 11: Another day without a trace of Keko, although Jim and Viva see something unusual today. Jim: I'm not sure what going on here. Viva: Looks like a baby rover show-off... Day 12: Looking for Keko continues, Jim and Viva meet one of their crew mates on top of some kind of rover. Jim: Did he really add wheels to a starfire 1? Viva: I do recognize some parts of it, it's a really strange rover now... Jim: But on a more serious note, we really should continue our search. Viva: Yeah let's go. Day 13: Today, we find Jim and Viva in discussion with some alien. Jim: Hello, we are and Viva and Jim, did you see some suspicious people in black? We are looking for a grey robot and the only clue we have is energy crystals and people in black. Alien: Greetings, I'm Omicron Draconis, we haven't seen any suspicious behavior around here. Viva: What exactly are you doing here with this weird looking rover. Omicron Draconis: We are filtering the sand on this planet, the sand is sucked in from the ground, and then we filter the sand. Jim: Why would you do that? Omicron Draconis: We are looking for a rare and special purple sand. We use that to make special parts for ships and rovers. Viva: Interesting story, thank you for the explanation. Then we need to look further. Jim: Yeah let's go. Day 14: Jim: Hmm, that's a strange looking Futuron radar rover. Viva: It looks more like a Pinktron rover. Jim: Yeah, those wheels look a bit like candy... Viva: Would it have something to do with that valentine's day custom I heard about? Day 15: Day 15 of the search for Keko, Jim and Viva haven't found the missing link yet. Jim: Still no trace of those black guys. Viva: Let's ask the driver of that springy looking rover. Jim: I don't think he sees us. The rover quickly passes by and the only remaining creatures left are small slimy aliens. Viva: I guess we can't ask them about anything, let's continue our search. Day 16: A new day, a new chance to find Keko. Jim: so we are almost back at our starting point, without any real trace of Keko. We need a new plan. Viva: I agree. Driver of the passing liquid transport rover: I heard they also have some crystal expert here. She sends over some new coordinates. Jim: Let's go there tomorrow. Viva: Yeah, good idea. Day 17: Arriving at the received coordinates from yesterday, Jim and Viva make their way to the nearest crystal deposit. There, they find a small rover passing by. Jim: It looks like they also have energy crystals here. Viva: Yeah, no sign of those guys in black though, I'm wondering what we are even looking for... Jim: Let's take a sample, and find a next place to continue our investigation. Viva: Okay, let's do that, too much snow and ice around here. Day 18: Jim and Viva are back from the frozen world, when suddenly the Cyber Baron arrives in his new rover. Jim: He looks kind of suspicious, but only his helmet is black. Viva: Yeah, I don't think we found our clue yet. Jim: Let's just ask. Viva: Okay. Jim: Hello, did you see any guys in black with energy crystals and/or a grey robot? Cyber Baron: I'm not answering that, goodbye. With that he drives off into the distance. Jim: ... Day 19: Jim and Viva are still looking for Keko, not sure if they get any closer, they do know they are looking at a new rover today. Jim: What kind of rover is that? Viva: Looks like a prototype R-Tron rover. Jim: Oh, interesting, I have not seen those before. Viva: Yeah, those are rare, they don't make many of those. Day 20: Jim and Viva continue their search. Today they met a driver of a red rover. Jim: Hello, we are Jim an Viva, I see you have your own robot companion, but did you see any grey robot, we are looking for Keko? Jim shows a picture of Keko. Red rover driver: No I haven't seen that robot before, I'm afraid I can't help you with more information. Day 21: Jim and Viva see another strange looking rover today. Jim: That looks like a jet turbine engine on wheels... Viva: The driver looks a bit nervous. Jim: Would this be like those jet engines from the Galaxy Explorer, I remember someone tried to fly on that thing. Viva: Yeah, only with wheels this time... Day 22: Finally, a black looking figure appeared in a rover today. Jim: I do see a robot, it isn't Keko though. Viva: No, you're right, it's not even grey and I don't see any energy crystals. Jim: If Blacktron would have taken Keko, then we would need to call the Space Police. Viva: Yeah, but we need more information first. Day 23: Still looking for energy crystals, today we meet Jim and Viva underground. Sparks: So, you guys are looking for energy crystals. Jim: Well more exactly, we are looking for Keko, our robot friend, and apparently his disappearance has something to do with energy crystals. Docs: So, any other clues? Maybe Sparks can help you guys build a portable detector. Viva: That could really help us, we are a bit lost. Day 24: Jim and Viva were going to their next destination, when they suddenly saw a medic rover overtaking them. They followed it for a while, when they saw a familiar rover laying on it's side. Jim: It wasn't that safe after all. Viva: Luckily for the driver, at least it looks like the medic bot was already near. Jim: Yeah, still you have to be crazy driving a jet turbine engine on wheels... Viva: I agree. Day 25: After getting some info from Sparks, Jim and Viva turn up at a new crystal excavation site. The head of the mining operation tells them that many different energy crystal sites have seen suspicious activity this month. Jim: So, probably, those are the same guys who may have something to do with the disappearance of Keko. Viva: Yeah, that would be possible. Day 26: Today, Jim and Viva get some explanations were the energy crystals are used for. They get to see how the vehicles are powered by the energy cells and made/recharged from the energy crystals. Jim: So what suspicious activity was observed here? Space miner: We didn't observe it ourself, but some cameras registered some unusual activity. Also I heard some robots went missing. Viva: Hmm, that is indeed interesting, we're also looking for a robot. Day 27: Having heard more info about the suspicious activity at the crystal excavation sites, and the missing robots, Jim and Viva continue their search for Keko. Jim: Let ask the driver about Keko, as we still need some more info. Viva: I'll ask. Hello, We are looking for a grey Robot, have you seen or heard anything about missing robots. Driver of the red rover: Well, not personally, as I don't have any robots myself, but I heard an investigation by a special task force was happening right now. Maybe they know something, let me give you the coordinates. Viva: Thanks for the info, we'll be sure to check that out. Day 28: Jim and Viva arrive at the coordinates they received yesterday. Jim: This looks like the special task force we heard about yesterday. Viva: This task force also looks a bit suspicious, being dressed in all black. Jim: Yeah, although the Space Police use the same colours, a bit different though. Viva: Let's ask about Keko. Jim: Hi, we are looking for a missing robot. Man in black: We received various reports about missing robots, we also have tracked some of them to various locations, but it looks like they are on the move. Day 29: Hello, I'm Ned from the Trans Galactic Info Channel (TGIC) sponsored by Blue Bird Inc. and Meta 3 Corp. As you may or may not know, some robots have gone missing the past month. But today, all is over, the culprit has been caught by my great investigation that I single handedly performed. Jim: What are you talking about, you didn't do anything, the special task force caught the botnapper. Viva: Yeah, we haven't even seen you the whole month. Ned: please don't interrupt my story, we're live you know. Anyway, we can see how the mastermind of the disappearance of Keko and other bots has been caught. The illegal's robot trader who calls himself 'Tobor the Trader' will be escorted to the nearest prison planet, as he was caught stealing various robots. Which he tried to sell for energy crystals. This concludes our bot napping report, thanks for tuning in, and don’t forget to subscribe, also follow me for more stories @NedIsTheBest.meta3.moon2be to stay up to date with the latest news about me. Jim: I'm just glad Keko was ok. Viva: Yeah. Keko: Hi Jim, look at all my new robot friends. Jim: I see you are doing just fine... Major Kartofski: Can somebody please let me down, I don't like being upside down! Anybody...
  2. Debated posting this here vs Sci-Fi since it's both a spaceship MOC and a Rock Raiders MOC.... Anywho, LMS Pathfinder is a 4-person advanced scout vessel that was on a reconnaissance mission and became separated from the other Rock Raiders when LMS Explorer passed through the wormhole to Planet U.
  3. To me Rock Raiders is the greatest theme Lego has ever produced. The whole story they built up around it, the wide variety of bigger and smaller sets with the best color-palette to date makes for perfection. Given my love for this theme I got curious of what a "UCS" or V2.0 version would look like of these sets. So in this thread I will post my takes on what this could look like. First out is my UCS Loader Dozer. I have restricted myself to only use Dark gray and Light gray to stay within the themes palette. While the designation "UCS" might be a bit of a stretch in this instance I want to point out that the set originally came with 85 parts, while this version comes in at 400 parts. So quite a lot more pieces than the original set at least. I would love to hear what you think!

    Two old boats

    I was looking through my old ship MOCs with my brother, as we do every now and then, and at the end, I had a nagging feeling one was missing. So I slept on it and I awoke the next morning, and I remembered a ship. I then hunted through my old photos, and thankfully, sitting in a folder on my old laptop was the missing photos. Imperial... Flagship? by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr It's a ship I built 5 or 6 years ago, maybe even 7, I'm not completely sure. But it was the first MOC I actually built with the 10210 colours. Kinda surprising given how much I love that set. Imperial... Flagship? by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr Imperial... Flagship? by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr Imperial... Flagship? by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr Imperial... Flagship? by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr Imperial... Flagship? by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr But as it turns out, there was actually TWO boats I never posted. One based on the Imperial Flagship. Which one? Both. And my Rock Raider ship. "Ocean Notion" Merchant ship by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr "Ocean Notion" Merchant ship by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr "Ocean Notion" Merchant ship by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr I really like the caution striping I did on the hull of this.

  5. For a long time I wanted to build some Rock Raider MOCs. I loved playing the game and with the sets when it was new and remember playing a lot with it and building things from the game (with the wrong colors). Sadly I never had the big sets but I did have the the Loader-Dozer and a couple of small sets so I did have most minifigs and the rock monster except the Chief. So I recently started putting some figs together and started updating them, and also added some extra characters. Rock Raiders 2.0+ by Ids, on Flickr From left to right: - Raiden (a new miner to expand the team) - Nari (a rookie engineer, helps Sparks with his tasks) - Wiz (a Zotaxian expert in energy crystals and Voltstones) - Sparks (an expert on all things mechanical and electrical) - Jet (the most courageous and strong-willed of all the Rock Raiders, she is a very skilled pilot) - Chief (the oldest, wisest and most experienced Rock Raider) - Docs (the head Geologist and Commander) - Bandit (the greatest sailor) - Axle (one of the best drivers of the team) - Rocky (a robot) - Krenxx (a demolition expert) When building the figs, I realized I had to also build some vehicle for them, for FebRovery (see also this topic: [MOC] Febrovery 2022 a story of rovers - LEGO Sci-Fi - Eurobricks Forums) I made one: FebRovery 2022 - 25 by Ids, on Flickr Heavy Tunnelator by Ids, on Flickr The search for energy crystals continues, the Heavy Tunnelator is a new Rock Raiders vehicle, the drill can be pushed out of the vehicle to drill from a safe distance. An experimental function of the vehicle is that the drill can be remotely controlled from inside the cabin, and can continue to drill without being attached to the base. And today I also finished some small ones: Rock Raider scouts by Ids, on Flickr Two small Rock Raider vehicles. Made an updated Hover Scout and a small scout rovers. Thanks for looking and let me know what you think, I will probably work on some more vehicle when I have an idea.

    [MOC] M.U.L.E-Koma

    "Rock and Raid!" Marchikoma 2023: M.U.L.E-Koma by Admiraltyphoon, on Flickr Just a fun triple mashup I thought about, mixing the M.U.L.E from the game Deep Rock Galactic with the Tachikoma shaping for extra crystal storage space, then giving it the iconic Rock Raiders colours to go even deeper with the mining theme!
  7. Part I - Rock Raiders 2.0: Hope Part II - Rock Raiders 2.0: Granite Grinder The report was clear, but Jet struggled to make sense of it. “Extraction to be completed in T-40 minutes. Subject needs transportation from complex DF91 directly to the laboratory ASAP. Report immediately. Coordinates in the attached document. Full discretion” She knew the tunnels like the palm of her hand. She transported everything from radioactive malachite geodes to million years old fossils. And they all had one thing in common: heavy duty. But there was something strange about the report she just received. Even though Dr. Mallory’s studies were classified, people knew it was focused on energy-based minerals – in microscopic cell formations. “...Intact crystallized bacterial magnetite... high concentration of the element N72XH... 8.6 tons of concentrated matter... possible disintegration and contamination” 8.6 tons? For a microcellular study? It felt wrong. But how could it? The report came directly from Dr. Mallory Lynch. And no... Dr. Mallory Lynch was never wrong. A thousand colored lights flickered as the flight deck came to life. She pushed the thrust lever and felt her chest tremble with the roar of the double PW5000 rotors swirling parallel to her ears. The turbines on the T.T.VTOL hissed and echoed though unknown subterranean caves. She was up in the air once again. In the dark, Jet smiled remembering Dr. Mallory’s last request. “Full speed, Jet”. _________ Were Rock Raiders part of your LEGO life? The Tunnel Transport, set 4980, was my favorite Rock Raider transport. Something about the rotors, how massive this aircraft was. Oh! And the playability with magnets, of course. So, here is my updated version (T.T.VTOL) of the Rock Raiders’ Tunnel Transport, set 4980-1, from 1999. Third and final part of my Rock Raiders Revamp. Hope you like it as much as I do (and did back then). And hopefully it will inspire you to bring this awesome theme back to life. Keep on building! Louis of Nutwood

    Aquasharks Drill Squid

    Even the Aquasharks sometimes mine for crystals themselves
  9. Part I - Rock Raiders 2.0: Hope Part III - Rock Raiders 2.0: Tunnel Transport The message was sound and clear, but Sparks had to check it again to believe it. For the sender was no other than Dr. Mallory Lynch. “Vista Ridge, tunnel complex FD91. Coordinates in the attached document. Report immediately. Full discretion.” The experienced mining engineer opened the report and struggled to keep his jaw from hitting the floor. “... Intact crystallized bacterial magnetites, believed to derive from organic matter, with high concentration of the element N72XH” Could it be true? Could she have finally found the crystals? After thirteen years under the ground, of extensive research, of drilling whole after whole, tunnel after tunnel, Sparks’s purpose and ambition had slowly faded into an unreachable dream. But if the reports were correct... everything changed. The official stamp of a drill breaking the soil marked every page. And that distant dream, suddenly became reality. His heart burst with the potential meaning of the discovery, but the last sentence in Dr. Mallory’s message made him chuckle like a kid for the first time in a decade. “Oh... and bring the Grinder” ... As you wish, Dr. ________ Were Rock Raiders part of your LEGO life? The Granite Grinder, set 4940-1, was the first R.R. of my collection. And this beast is hardcore! So, I had to give him a little update and facelift. This is part II of III. For the final part, I’ll share my take on my favorite Rock Raiders set. Can you guess which one it is? Hope you enjoy it as much as I do (and did). Cheers! Louis of Nutwood
  10. Part II - Rock Raiders 2.0: Granite Grinder Part III - Rock Raiders 2.0: Tunnel Transport The ground shook, and a deafening roar echoed through the unknown corridors running under the earth. Her heart burst. After 20 years, Dr. Mallory, the most reckoned geologist in the western world, was still uncomfortable with the darkness, the indecipherable sounds, the invisible infinite pits, the imminent danger of working with the strange in nature. The sacrifice. Being way beyond the edge of safety. But it was all worth it after all. If it meant finding a cure... something to keep it from spreading... it meant hope. The numbers were correct, as always. The readings in the NordicEM24 Receiver were matching. And a blinking light at the edge of her equipment meant only one thing. She was close. The white beam of her flashlight cleared the subterranean aisles of rock and dirt, and a distant green sparkle tainted the darkness. She approached. Slowly. Carefully. With every step, what was once a little twinkle, became a blinding show of a radiant fluorescent wall, emblazoned with crystals. Her eyes filled from within, and the truest smile took her lips. Finally, she thought. Finally! ________ Were Rock Raiders part of your LEGO life? This theme was one of my childhood's favorites in the late 90's. I've been willing to work on a R.R. Revamp, and it finally came together. This is part I of III. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do (and did). Cheers! Louis of Nutwood

    [MOC] Rock Raiders Mining Mech

    Hello! Do you remember Rock Raiders series? In my opinion that theme had a big potential. This time I'm glad to present you my variation of Rock Raiders crew's mining mech. That mech is bigger than last one. Needs more power and weight to mine all important minerals.

  16. Hi everyone , it's been like 16 years i'm out of lego... now...one event leads to another...aaand i'm kind of back into it. what should i say... stayed at my parents place... had nothing to do... went to the basement and had to decide what to grab: laptop vs. box of old legos... spent the whole evening building the rock raiders tunnel transport (nothing ultra special but it has something to it besides memories ). ...and that was it. So, before posting pics i have to give credits to the original idea: Lego Ideas - Civilization: Beyond Earth Worker Mech and here is, what i made out of it: it was fun to build and works mostly fine (you could play with it). I realy like the function of the shovel with the two little levers/antennas holding the arms in place! The only flaw is the cockpit, because everything is quite loose... but that's negligible . Still needs a little bit done here and there, but that's it for now. well...stuck two lasers on it for maximum "pew pew" That's it so far. Thanks for reading and have a nice day
  17. The Rock Raiders use this small buggy for discovering caves. The buggy has a small computer unit and a radar dish. The buggy Isn’t equipped with mining tools, it’s only usable as a discovery vehicle.

    Rock Wrecker

    My second build for the 2017 LEGO Speeder Bike Contest, for the Overkill Oval category. The track was probably the most difficult part of this build, and it ended up going through several iterations before settling on the current design. Ready to tear through opponents, the Rock Wrecker’s brutal saw and powerful laser are a deadly combination. And if things really get out of hand, its deployable missiles in the hidden undercarriage compartment end things with a bang. More pictures on Brickbuilt Thanks for looking, C&C welcome
  21. I've built this small MOC two days ago. It's a Rock Raiders dump truck with a small drill and radar dish. And rised cabin for overview. Pictures: 01_Dump_truck_with_drill by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 02_Dump_truck_with_drill by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr Hope you like it (Pictures also on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/mathijslegofan/)
  22. So here it is, my biggest project after Hogwarts is finally completed! with a part count of something in between 7000-8000 parts! It have taken me 2 months to build this monster and I have to say that I'am more then pleased with the result! Now something that you have most likely noticed is the extremely poor photo, don't think that I doesn't care about the photo but I just don't have any camera, nor does anyone else in the family so this is the best I can do (like, it really is as good as it gets, I've tried to get a decent shot for a week now...). I hope you like it despite that. Something that I noticed yesterday that I thought was quite funny is that I uploaded my first Rock Raiders MOC a year ago :-) This is also the biggest Rock Raiders MOC ever made right now btw ;-) Lego Rock Raiders HQ [MOC] by =DoNe=, on Flickr Lego Rock Raiders HQ [MOC] by =DoNe=, on Flickr Lego Rock Raiders HQ [MOC] by =DoNe=, on Flickr
  23. Last week I've made a new concept vehicle for the Rock Raiders 2 game: Drill Craft 2,0. It's a new version of the original Rock Raiders set 1277 Drill Craft: http://brickset.com/sets/1277-1/Drill-Craft I've tried to build a lot of details in this MOC, added better drills and give it a more speeder look. pictures: 01_Drill-Craft_2.0 by LegoMathijs, on Flickr 03_Drill_Craft_2.0 by LegoMathijs, on Flickr 02_Drill_Craft_2.0 by LegoMathijs, on Flickr 04_Drill_Craft_2.0 by LegoMathijs, on Flickr I hope you like it
  24. Last week I´ve made this MOC. Communications Compound. The Rock Raiders use it for communication between the miners, vehicles and HQ´s. This MOC is a concept for the Rock Raiders 2 game.

  25. Today I thought, that I should share this spaceship here, because despite its flaws (it may look a bit boring and repetitive) I think, that it's still a pretty decent ship, which fits into this part of the forum (here are already some Rock Raider MOCs). This post is similar to the one, that I have made on rockraidersunited, but without the development of rather bad pictures to pictures, that I have made in POV-Ray etc. XD, but since I haven't uploaded all pictures on flickr yet, there is still some stuff in the rru-thread, that isn't here (like a separate model of the bridge): http://www.rockraide...file-available/ I will also post 4 other MOCs (3 smaller LMS Explorer models and one action-figure MOC) on eurobricks :).
