Captain Key posted a topic in LEGO LicensedSupport a LEGO Idea? Submitted this idea to LEGO, but built it to fill a need for more steam punk builds in general. Anyone who's familiar with steam punk have some details they would add to this that could make it more appealing? In 1865, a time traveler came to Abe Lincoln and told him his gruesome fate. Wanting to avoid this, Abe agreed to come aboard the time traveler's vessel and live his best life: treasure hunting through time! Along the way, he gathered a crew of history's most adventurous people. Along with Abe came Cleopatra, Sun Tzu, Socrates, Robin Hood, and Blackbeard. He persuaded these celebrities of history by offering fame and fortune beyond their wildest dreams. The vessel itself is a hardy steam-powered copter ship that can travel on water or through the air. It is driven by a lightning rod device that uses static electricity in the clouds and lightning to power its fuel cell attached to the wheel. That wheel is connected to a helm clock and an engine clock where the crew can set a course for any time throughout history. One can remove the rear deck in order to stow helpful items and treasure! A rear propeller thrusts forward movement while side propellers affect the yaw. Heavy chains keep the rotor and engine assembly stable while in flight. Get ready for adventure and fun as this all-star crew wets their feet on this maiden voyage tea party! Support this time machine idea!
Something I created last night in the studio. Honestly, I wanted to make a gritty, steam-punk inspired airship, mixing pieces parts from the Ninjago: Skybound 70603 Raid Zeppelin, 70601 Sky Shark, and Day of the departed 70592 Salvage M.E.C. All that I got from that was another pile of bricks. Also, a pilotable mech suit for Pirates. My inspiration was the Skeleton Mech that came with Ronin's Salvage M.E.C. Honestly, I wanted to make a diving suit for my LEGO CMF Series 8 Diver. After putting it together and taking it apart and rearranging the pieces so many times, I ultimately converted the Diving suit into a fully weaponized battle suit for the Brickbeard Pirates. Looking at the build, it looks like an extremely scaled down version of Kai's 70721 Fire Mech. Another source of inspiration, is Captain Metalbeard from the LEGO Movie. By far my favorite character, and set, from the entire thing. (I have made heavy modifications to stock Metalbeard from 70807 Metalbeard's Duel, as well as build from scratch with instructions, An Evil Robot variation of Metalbeard I've come to call Steelbeard. The foot on the left leg is the only thing I dislike about the entire build. It seems flimsy as it is supporting the entire thing, and consists of two bricks. I do like the grating on the angle piece, to make it look like a boot tread though. The major difference between this Moc, and traditional Steam Punk, is that this is more in line with the golden age of Piracy. Ergo, in lieu of a Steam Boiler, this battlesuit is fueled by Rum, grog, or anything else foul smelling that can burn in a boiler. Bilge Punk, if you would prefer to call it anything.
Berghain89 posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHey, i would love to share my latest Creation with you guys. Its been a while since my last MOC, but i took the time to build something cool. It is definitely one of my best so far. And for the first time i decided to provide detailed instruction for this MOC. What are the functions of the ZlL E134 Truck: First of all, i used 2x SBricks and 2x 88000 Battery Packs. 2 XL Motos for propulsion 2 L Motors for steering 1 M Motor for gear change (2 speed transmission) 1 LED on the roof (there is a lot of space to use more LED) a working 12 Zylinder Fake Engine behind the cabin. 2965 Parts , about 3,4 Kg. There is still room for improvements. Under the hood is enough space to put in what ever you want. The whole Bodywork can be removed very easy. (modular design) But as always, a short video can show you the Model in action. Instruction: https://rebrickable....nkmad-max-desig Thanks to Madoka for the inspiration with his Tatra 813 Truck. Great work as always.
