    I am away from my collection so I couldn't continue with Mech Monday, but I also couldn't resist grabbing four copies of Zane's spinner on discount, and since Chris likes wheels and Ice Planet, a rover was an obvious early birthday present build. Some funky smaller scale white wheels were also added, and I used some other spinner parts. Can you spot them?


    Btw, this was built entirely out of bricks I acquired after the move. Some sets were bought specifically for this build. And of course I had to include some extra special limited edition printed bricks because Chris liked them so much. ...and a play feature too. :)

    Thanks to Jonas, who helped with finding the connection for the spinner (they are a pain to connect to anything that's not included in the set), it actually rolls!

    For this week, here's a roundup of all of my models.

    If you're wondering where this week's model is, watch the video. :S


    Build something for Mech Monday!

    This is the 26th model in the series, which means the first half is officially done.

    Based off this Blood Angels Chaplain miniature from Warhammer 40000...

    (I know it's not a mech, robot or drone, but Markus and I agreed that exo-suits, power suits, hardsuits etc. are legit. :S)

    ...I give you:

    Next week's theme: “Shiny” (to celebrate the first half of the year being complete)


    See you next Monday!

    Thanks, Marcel. It's nice that you have enough time to relax and comment on MOCs again. :)


    Here's another homage to Exo-Force: a revamp of the 8115 set, to complement my Aero Booster.

    This time I took more liberty and made the set as it should have been: a proper panther with teal instead of purple, gold instead of yellow, single pilot, and a tail cannon — rawr!

    It was time for another Gundam mobile suit, this time in light aqua...

    I haven't really been consistent with the scale of my Gundams. the first and the second are in quite a large scale. The third and the fourth are similar in size, but the scale is much smaller, since those two are larger in the series. This week's model is intentionally smaller. I wanted to experiment with the scale and to step away from the usual. The size is significantly smaller than the other four, but the scale is close to that of the third or fourth. Unfortunately, the first three have been packed since the Kockice Convention so I haven't taken a photo of all four of them... yet.

    The design of the cross on the shield is borrowed from a model I built seven years ago.

    Mech-ception!


    Sadly, I didn't have enough orange globlins for all the little dudes... (the red ones are printed at a wrong angle) ...so I used snowgies!

    This week's theme is Music, and Andrea came to my mind as an obvious mech pilot.

    The model is dedicated to Suhi, a fellow builder from Croatia. Check out his models on his Flickr stream.

    This week, it's something a bit different...

    In case you forgot about Exo-Force, here's a reminder in the form of a revamp of 8106:

    After two less serious mechs, here's another Gundam mobile suit. I was drawn to this one because at first glance it looks like a mess, and not a mech... I don't think the photo sells it well. It's actually quite big and barely fit inside my light tent.

    Join in on the fun and see what other people have built so far in the Flickr group.

    If you want a challenge or need inspiration, next week we're doing “Guardians.”


    See you next Monday!

    An Easter egg for Easter seems logical...

    Marcel, you probably won't find this hard to believe... This is the third or fourth idea I had for the eye holder tubes/vessels, but Markus had none of the other pieces I wanted because they were all common non-rare, non-exclusive, non-expensive pieces, such as Technic macaroni, animal S-tails etc. So Markus didn't force me to use minifig hands... not directly anyway.

    Turned out that when in Rome... :S

    (You should have seen how many times the pieces fell on the floor... :sleeping:)

    This week's model is part of a collaboration between three builders: Markus, Chris and myself. We all built at Markus's place last week. I give you...

    Yep, the sand green one is the redeemer and the last pose in the video is the only possible one. It's sooo heavy...


    Thanks for both your comments. :D
