I hope everyone had a great time over the holidays with good people and lots of lovely food. We certainly had all of the above! And somewhere between the piles of glitter, empty glasses, bottles and bowls of snacks from new years eve, there happened to be a box of Bricks and Eyes (11003) we… Read More Happy New Year! (And a belated Merry Christmas too!)
What do you do when you have too many old white bricks, that have yellowed to a point where they are really more tan like white? Yes, of course you could use hydrogen peroxide to whiten them again… but apart from that, if you don’t really want all the hassle? Build something that looks suitingly… Read More Oldschool MOC: Ulf’s Garage
Lets start off the new year with some MOC-content. More to follow in the coming weeks! This cute little car is inspired by the 2014 polybag Mini Cooper. A nearly perfect set in its own right, if it just would have room for a Minifigure driver! I fixed this flaw by replacing the windscreen with the… Read More Mini Mini
In my review of the Y-Wing recently, I criticised the rather lacklustre gun that came for the Moroff-Minifigure. In Rogue One he wields something that looks like a small laser-minigun. In his Lego incarnation though, it was nothing more than a pistol with a technic-pin attached to it – and that only very loosely fitting… Read More Moroff needs a bigger Gun (seriously!)
Amongst other things I was busy with building a successor to the Andromeda, a project that is, with all its redesigns challenges and more redesigns, definitely worth a longer post on its own. But today I show you what I built immediately after I finished it (for now!). Contrary to the Andromeda II, this one… Read More Classic Space Starfighter
While I was redecorating my Lego display (replacing the Star Wars scene I had for over a year with some ocean explorers), I took a closer look at the Dewback from the 2014 Cantina-set. It is really a splendid model which is sadly quite underused. And to be honest: what should the imperials do with such… Read More Sword (or Axe) and Sorcery!
You might remember my review of the Misfortune Keep. And the modifications I did on the little pirate flyer. Well, I promised you a mod of the Ninjago-flyer as well – and here we go! While the original version is a weird and not very successful attempt on a rocket-propelled VTOL, my plan was to go… Read More Fixing the Misfortune Keep Flyer! (Part 2)
Batman everywhere! This year started with a real flood of sets to the new film – and I wasn’t really impressed by most of them… Ironically the new Batwing looks actually pretty good, if it wasn’t so huge! I prefer the idea of it as a small and nimble plane, made for swooshing along streets,… Read More Batwing!
You may remember that I’m not too excited by the little flyers that came with the Misfortune Keep. They just feel unfinished and below their potential compared to the glorious main build. I felt right away when assembling them that they need some serious upgrades. Luckily for the sky pirates, I decided to mod their flyer first.… Read More Fixing the Misfortune Keep Flyer! (Part 1)
Last time I showed you the fast space cruiser Andromeda in all its glory exploring deep space. This time I show you some impressions from the time before the start:
