  1. A futuristic Harley Davidson concept motorcycle I built for the "Build An Epic Ride For The Future" contest on LEGO Ideas. I thought I'd post it over here for fellows here to check out (Above): An over the top render of the motorcycle riding on the highway. It's capable of self-driving, hehe To stay somewhat fateful to the classic Harley Davidson designs, I maintained some details like the V-Twin engine (which is now oversized, and transparent), the exhausts (even though it's supposed to be emission free...), and the placement of the front suspension forks. Other than that, I guess it looks closer to a futuristic sports bike I also thought that elements such as the Large PF Linear Actuators and the Mindstorms IR Sensor (which I totally wrecked it's color), without considering their functions, provide plenty of free details in such a small space. I would certainly like to know what you think about this motorcycle Did I do Harley Davidson motorcycles justice? Thanks for viewing!
  2. Everyone remembers galaxy squad. Some liked it, some didn't. But everyone can probably agree that it was our last original,thought out, classic space theme. I liked it, but probably not the kids. At least that's what I suspect, considering the mark downs at Walmart. Because "nooooooo no no no"! Kids didn't want this. They wanted this! "Sigh" So where does that leave us? Stuck buying something like this? So I'm thinking "If kids want Star Wars, why not make sets aimed towards adults?" Creator Expert Series anyone? Why not make a $100 to $500 dollar classic space for AFOL? What do you think?
  3. Interstellar was one of my favorite films from the past five years. After I first saw it, I tried to build the Ranger spacecraft, but was stumped by all the shallow angles and gave up. I finally returned to it this summer and managed to finish it up. It's not perfect but it swooshes quite well, so I'm happy with it. Those aren't mountains by Tembets, on Flickr One of the things I did differently on my second attempt was to mask the windows in with stickers (the front ones are masked in over a 1x6x5 panel and a pair of 1x4x3 window) because at minifigure scale there was just no way for me to capture all the little angles in bricks in a way that I was happy with. This also freed up some space to work on the shaping around the fuselage. Ranger by Tembets, on Flickr In the film, the front landing gear extends out from under the winglets at an angle. I managed to more or less capture this with a bar supported by a droid arm that can fold down to land, or up and under the winglets for flight. The rear hatch can swing down, and there is a second set of sliding doors that isolate the cabin from the outside. Ranger by Tembets, on Flickr Figures from left to right: Cooper, Brand, Romilly, Doyle, TARS, Mann. I didn't have access to Illustrator or anything at the time, so I ended up making all the stickers in powerpoint Endurance by Tembets, on Flickr And as a little bonus, I made the Endurance spacecraft as well as part of a short video I did of this MOC (below). The Ranger is also posted to LEGO Ideas if you are interested, thanks for checking my MOC out!

    Neo Classic Moon base MOC- WIP

    Hi! I have started a long term project of a giant neo-classic space moon base. I would love to hear your thoughts. https://flic.kr/p/2gBg1Rb https://flic.kr/p/2gCSzwR https://youtu.be/DjOe9c89BD4
  5. Belus was a series of experimental locomotives within the dystopian apocalyptic fictional universe of The Final Station. There was only 8 locomotives in total, with the series discontinued after the main project supervisor went missing and the project team going bankrupt, ceasing production and maintenance of the Belus locomotives whatsoever. According to the game wiki the train's wheel arrangement is supposed to be 6-2-0 (I am not versed in train wheel patterns), but I depicted only the four that show up in the gaps between the plating. EDIT: Yesterday before sleep I've tried to make the Belus to actually have three pairs of smaller wheels, as is suggested by the info from the wiki. I think it looks much better, even though not much have changed on the surface: Here's what lies under the plating though: Here's the train's in-game appearance: As you can see, I had to work with a design that was ever represented only in a side-view, so it was a challenge to turn it into a 3D and pick a good width. In the end, I am glad that I even managed to more-or-less adjust the wheels to stand on the standard LEGO train tracks. All in all, it was a fun build that I wanted to tackle for a while! Also, please do check out the game, it's gorgeous and has a really good atmosphere! The model is made in Lego Digital Designer and adjusted in Stud.Io. The decals were applied via Stud.Io Part Designer. Here's a turnaround animation: https://i.gyazo.com/c860b0e9068f664dd29f8a4cdb9dce3f.gif

    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?

    Classic Space Outpost MOC

    Hello everyone. I haven't been out of the dark ages for long - just 3 or so years. Although the Millennium Falcon is what dragged be back into LEGO, my passion has always been with Classic Space. I've spent ages (literally ages) creating this base. I submitted it to LEGO Ideas last year, and then proceeded to making massive changes to it. I have submitted the modified version it to Lego Ideas recently, but would really value a discussion about it with people on this board :)
  9. Discuss your hopes, wishes, and speculation on what LEGO's Collectable Minifigure line may offer for Sci-Fi fans in the near future!

  21. This is my first MOC (Or partial MOC I guess) which I haven't been outright embarrassed by which I've been building for the past week or so. I'ts the interior for a LEGO UCS The Punishing One, but I COMPLETELY lack the skill to do the rest of the MOC. So far I've only made the interior, which personally I think I've actually done a fairly good job of, though I haven't done the cockpit. (The tiles in front of the door the farthest up are supposed to be the start of it) So because of being terrible at building MOC's I was hoping someone could take the task over from me... I'd be happy to help however I can though, but if you use my interior I'd be a little annoyed if you didn't at the very least give me credit. You can download the lxf file for it here, which is meant to be opened in Lego Digital Designer https://www.dropbox.com/s/7dle8y675a3ykn0/Star Wars Jumpmaster 5000 Dengar's ship the Punishing One.lxf?dl=0 As for references to the vehicle I'd suggest referring to http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/JumpMaster_5000, and the X-Wing Miniatures series model of it if you feel like spending the money on it https://www.amazon.com/Fantasy-Flight-Games-Star-X-Wing/dp/B013TRXXD6 A basic view A top-down view The bunks Dengar's lounge' :P The cabinets and draws The oven/microwave hybrid and stove (Hey, it's sci-fi, of course it can be a hybrid and the reason for this is definitely not that I'm just lazy :P Hey look! For once a Star Wars ship actually has a freaking toilet lol I also want to point out my the pattern I've made for the walls. Since I couldn't find a way to smooth it up a bit I decided to make it a pattern, albeit very basic, but I don't think Dengar would really care about aesthetic lol. Here is a space I've cut out for the Boarding/Cargo ramp as well. I also plan to build interiors for several other Star Wars ships by the way

    NX-01 Enterprise

    The NX-01 was the first NX-class starship, launched by the United Earth Starfleet in 2151. She was equipped with humanity's first Warp 5 engine. Commanded by Jonathan Archer, he served as her captain for ten years before the ship was retired and placed in a museum. She was featured in Star Trek: Enterprise. (2001-2005) She was 225 meters long, but this model is 8.6" long, 4.7" wide, and 2.4" tall. (That's roughly 1:1030 scale, looking only at the length.) She's got 310 parts, with a Bricklink price of roughly $40-$45 USD. (I intend on polishing the design, then buying the parts for a physical version.) Other than a few tiny aesthetic details, I'm ready to call her complete. Been working on her for about 2 1/5 weeks in Bricklink's Studio 2.0.
