Google Powered LEGOŽ Digital Designer Posted by Richard on February 1, 2014 at 07:10 PM CST:
I've seen news of Google doing some sort of online brick building program, but I didn't realize it was an official joint project with LEGO® Digital Designer until Matoro from our forums posted a MOC he made with it. Too bad there seems to be a part limitation, but that's probably so The LEGO® Company can eventually let any user with a good web browser design and buy their own sets without sucking down all of Google's processing power and bandwidth. It would be interesting to see and manipulate larger MOCs if they rolled out a fully featured LDD browser.

VBBN's Kronos is an exceptional creation comprised mostly of Hero Factory parts. It's a perfect combination of detail and articulation.
Who Wants To See Their MOC's On The Front Page? Posted by Richard on October 23, 2013 at 07:47 PM CST:
We would like to get some more MOCs displayed on our front page (Halloween themed LEGO® creations or even costumes would be great too if you have any!), and chances are good you can see yours here unless we suddenly get 100 requests. If your interested please see the details.
Fun With LEGOŽ Power Functions Posted by Richard on June 21, 2013 at 11:21 PM CST:
BIONICLE® has always had some relation to the technic series, and as a result, I've got a bunch of technic pieces sitting in bins that usually go into a larger MOC of mine. However, while I was shopping for some gifts, I discovered that individual motors were surprisingly cheap on LEGO® S@H. It still took me about 80 bucks to get everything I needed to make this, but if you don't mind dropping around 50 bucks and providing the other parts and batteries, imagine being able to drive your toa around in a vehicle that actually drives.
Rahkshi Hunter, Now With 50% More Rahkshi! Posted by Richard on May 3, 2013 at 09:59 PM CST:
I've made some revisions to my rahkshi hunter, it still needs some work but I think you will enjoy some of the changes, including a method to use rahkshi fins without a curved shell piece.
MOC Spotlight, "U.H. 8730", By Imatron Posted by Richard on April 23, 2013 at 06:36 PM CST:
Years ago, when the Hewkii Inika set went on sale for $2.50 USD on LEGO S@H, I ordered a bunch because I wanted to see what a full ring of Zamor ammo clips looked like when made into a complete ring. This left me with a bunch of leftover parts and eventually resulted in Project Uber Hewkii. Now I present to you a more finalized version.
