A Victory At Brick Universe Posted by Richard on March 26, 2015 at 09:25 PM CST: Brick Universe (beware, autoplay audio) started today for full event attendees, and so far its turning out to be a great convention. I was selected to participate in the Combo Build contest, and took home first place with this Combo Bot transformer I built out of the two sets. Forum link
Furnok, Bohrok Commander Posted by Richard on November 23, 2014 at 05:21 PM CST:
Its been a while since I posted a MOC of my own, this one is inspired by the Bohrok and a suggestion from Takal over a year ago.
A Clever Home Made Emmet Costume Posted by Richard on November 4, 2014 at 07:22 PM CST:
I really wish I had pictures to post, but a I saw a young man with a home made Emmet costume from The LEGO® Movie. I didn't realize what it was at first, being the day after Halloween and since he wasn't wearing the hard hat, but some time after he was out of view I realized it was a makeshift construction uniform. He used strips of orange material along the legs and arms, placed over blue jeans and a shirt where they would be on the iconic minifigure. It was so simple but very effective.
Onua Rebuild, By Caboose Posted by Richard on September 15, 2014 at 06:36 PM CST:
Forum member Caboose's Onua Rebuild is a new take on the original toa of earth, and makes very good use of Hero Factory parts. Personally I like this remake better than what I've seen in the supposed leaked images running around (but I will give them credit for the new parts).
A LEGO® Powered Tank And Your Support Posted by Richard on July 8, 2014 at 07:09 PM CST:
I'm taking a shot at LEGO® Ideas, and earlier today they approved and posted my project. Its an IR remote controlled Power Functions tank that can shoot zamor spheres and scavenge for it's own ammunition, using only two motors. Its quite a feat of engineering if I may say so. I'm hoping with our readers support it could be an off-the-shelf kit one day. Feel free to send Mask Of Destiny links to your own LEGO Ideas projects, they count as MOCs too (which I'd love to post more of!), and even better if we can help your project's chances of becoming an official set in the process!

Google Powered LEGO® 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.
