You need to take the 'dumb' off your mind and website. Self-deprecation has its place, but not in self-promotion.

Either I FIGHT FOR THE USERS or I'm OUT TO GET THAT FULLMETAL BRAT; depending on your particular brand of nerdiness. I'm going to add more to the back and abdomen.

Finished!

There's a slight wrinkle on the edge of the "spine" that bugs me. Otherwise, I like it.
Also, when printing the back circle, I had enough of the page left over to print off another design. I think I'll go get another shirt so I can use it!





The stuff on the back isn't actually crooked, the shirt's just kind of thrown on the floor because I had no way of taking a good photo of my back.
Oh, and there's two of those abdominal details. You just can't see them both at the same time since they're on either side of the body.

It seems to be some sort of draconian mallard.

IT'S LEGO TIME

So the other day I was digging through my Lego bucket and found the cockpit of an old Gurren-Lagann-inspired model I made years ago. I always liked the cockpit/face, but thought the arms were merely serviceable and the legs uninspired. So I took the cockpit and rebuilt the rest with entirely new proportions. I completely changed up everything, going with comletely different hinges, a new style of hands I made up on the fly, etc. It's not as flexible as before, but it's taller and a lot sleeker. I think I need to play around with it a bit more (it also bugs me that there's ONE wrong-coloured part, but I won't say which one). But anyway, I'm quite pleased with it. Check it out (with bonus boring technical commentary):



FUCK YEAHR METAL
For the fingers I decided to use claw pieces adorned with 1/2 pins, something that I don't really see elsewhere. I'm one of the few who insists on three-fingered hands. and opposable thumbs at all costs. I should really add some blue to the thumbs, too.



The blue fingers work well with the (very had to see) dark blue thighs. I almost considered changing the thighs from the blue from the original model to a black variant, but it's too visually boring. Blue adds a nice kick to it.
I'm also really proud of those shoulder pieces. They're basically a trick to hide the kind of ridiculous shoulder joint I used to save space. It's sheer good fortune that they could be mounted in place.



Look at that face! The eybrows double as eyelids. They can independently open or shut, rotate, and slide in place. The highly expressive eyes more than compensate for the relatively static mouth, which simply hinges. I did have a prototype for a version with moving cheek plates, but it was impractically large for the model, and half-disassembled anyway.



Angry face! In case you're wondering, space mummy is piloting it because why the hell not. The pilot seat is quite comfortably made, and two control levers fit in the pilot's hands. The back swings open, but I didn't include any sort of ladder for the pilot. I have an unused space directly under the cockpit that I may use for just such a thing later.



The chain on the leg is just there for fun. Although I didn't pose the legs much for these photos, the knees bend quite well even with the chain, and the feet bend at both the ankles (which also swivel!) and toes. The model has 48 different intentional hinges or articulated points of one type or another, and about 137-ish (very very small) parts.

I think... I think when I was a kid, I made a space ship once.
Your robots kick my childhood in the ass.

Your childhood is only getting kicked in the ass because you don't have a nice stash of legos to outdo teg with.

Man have I never mentioned before that I make Lego shit basically all the time?
Because I should mention that
 Losing nearly my entire Lego collection was one of only two things I regret about moving (the other being losing my Beetle Adventure Racing cartridge).

Some samples:








Boy, I sure liked Evangelion and Fullmetal as a teenager!
I mean, I still do, but moreso.

Ignoring what I'm hoping are Knex pieces I'm short at least three of those pieces as my set stopped growing before the aughts.

No Knex or Mega Blox in there! My collection ranged from late-eighties hand-me-down parts to a handful of post-2005 sets. I had a lot of Bionicle and Throwbots stuff too.
My current collection is a single bucket I salvaged that mostly contains new parts and a few sets I've bought since I moved. Lego's pretty expensive, so I can't get many sets outside of fairly small ones.

teg, I recommend that you shrink your images with
Code: [Select]
[img width=400][/img] and make them clickable thumbnail links to the full size image. Presentation is everything.
