Welcome to Lower Brinstar
About this creation
Don't stay too long, the locals aren't too friendly...



The Space Pirate is new; the green patches represent sections of unarmoured flesh.

Lower Brinstar, also known as 'Kraid', 'Kraid's Hideout' and 'Hideout I'.
This is a slightly more lush than usual section, probably near a large water supply.

I don't care what you have to say about the landscape, I'm going to pull it apart soon after posting this, as I've just gotten sick of it; too much green.


I'm going back to Brinstar.
I've grown to like those blue bricks.



You lot can have Tourian; too many scalp-sucking creatures there for me.

Two things: one, I'm sorry for "Meme-ing" on the TFOL group. Second, I like how this came out, and judging from all your other metroid mocs, I see you like it. If you do like it, you could check out all my Metroid MOCs.

Quoting Grammar Police ! The Grammar Police approve of your grammar.
However, the name of your group has an error: 'Grammer Police Academy'. That makes you guilty of hypocrisy and the harbouring of an error: off to gaol with you!

Quoting Recon Commander Peala /Galactic Republic Founder (TSC Home Defender) What do you mean?
I mean that the whole: 'ok, your ship is THIS big, so my new one that's half the size is actually THAT BIG! Oho, nope, this one I've got here is now FIVE TIMES AS BIG. Nuh-uh, now mine's got SUPAR LAZER CANNONZ to PWNZOR IT!' is beginning to get ridiculous.

Quoting Toby Heinemann Well, fair enough. If you seriously don't understand sarcasm I can't blame you for that bit, but it's important to remember that sometimes it's best not to say what you think, or at least not the way you think it. Even if it was unintentional, some of your comments (on 'Wight Knight', if you must know) came across as offensive to me. Knowing now where you came from with that helps, actually, and I'm sorry I've been ranting here. However, if the problem is misinterpretation of your comments, phrase them in a way that seems less open to interpretation. On 'Wight Knight', you said:
Quoting Areetsa C. Frankly, this is just odd. I hope you have no intent of continuing in this vein; I prefer the bulkier things you used to make.
Maybe it's just me, but I found this to be rather offensive even if your point is a valid one. It's not so much what you try to say that is the problem as much as it is HOW you say it. What I believe you wanted me to take from this (as an approximation) is 'unusual, but not unpleasant; I prefer the blockier style like on the 'Macharius''. Though only a minor difference in wording, it makes a BIG difference in meaning. Your comment makes it seem somehow gross or disturbing (odd), and you openly discourage the idea that I would continue in a similar style. I'm again not meaning to offend or rant, and that comment is no longer truly relevant to me, but I think that you should consider reviewing your comments to make sure they can't be taken offensively-- if you truly aren't trying to offend. Sorry for any confusion.
Yes, that's the intended meaning. In hindsight, I can see that it might have been misunderstood; that's the trouble with words.

Quoting Jesse Nelms Googoo is right you guys the very reason for comments is to help the other builder by giving them recommendations so they can improve their moc. (The rating system however is just a _____ annoyance.)
Actually, my impression was that the comment system was for everything from suggesting names, to mentioning building techniques that may be useful to simply remarking on a personal preference for certain parts.
Quoting Dali Zheng I agree with everything that Toby said. I also think you need to stop judging MOCs based on their scale or size but rather the quality of the build. It seems like the MOCs you consider your favourites are always enormous. There's nothing wrong with liking big MOCs, but you need to stop being harsh on the smaller, well-built ones.
Scale? I was not currently aware that I went straight for the big stuff; odd, I haven't bothered browsing the mecha section lately. The problem is, small things usually have strange legs; for instance, those 'skarbors' or whatever from the 'eos' group: the head and upper body is fine, as is the shoulders and weapons, but the legs are a problem, one which they are trying hard enough to rectify without any input from me.

Quoting Dali Zheng Toby is right again, including the veiled sarcasm part too. He leaves unhelpful reviews that aren't constructive. You guys defending him are missing the point. He is rude and no help at all.
I do not DELIBERATELY leave sarcasm. It's not something I'm much good with, either offline or on. And the impression I get is that you are missing the point also; if someone's got a problem with something, then by your logic there's no point in bringing it up unless you're willing to make suggestions to fix it.

Dunno much about Halo, but it's the same bloke, yes; or is it? That's the trouble with armoured soldiers, they all look the same. Is that one there Bob or George? I dunno, maybe he's neither and is actually Alice or Roger.

Quoting Toby Heinemann It's true that the point of comments is to enable outside builders to give constructive criticism or simply show their appreciation for one's work, but that's not what I'm talking about. The only reviews I've received from Areetsa were no help at all in terms of constructive criticism, and were positive 'compliments' veiled in a layer of barbed sarcasm. Again, no offense meant, but it IS something people note, and it is something people dislike. If you don't like an MOC, don't rate it; if you do like it, rate it up and maybe comment; if you don't like it but know how it can be improved, reserve judgment and leave a comment with tips.
I don't actually understand sarcasm, and so do not deliberately use it; from what I've seen, sarcasm doesn't properly carry on over the internet. As a rule, if I say I think something's impressive, that's what I think. What comments? I have no knowledge of any moc of yours deserving of anything less than a five. Just because I think that little hardsuit looks a bit odd to my eye doesn't mean it's not an extraordinarily complex model. Simply because that biomechanical thing looks like something from a deep, dark cave doesn't make it less difficult to make, just that the impression I got from what little I could see was that it was alien like, not what I myself usually think of when the word 'mecha' is mentioned.

I'm sorry Areetsa-- I like Metroid, I like Lower Brinstar (though not as much as Red brinstar, sorry), and I like Space Pirates (at least, crushing their skulls...), but I just don't see it with this. I also have to agree with Keith and Dali-- you may have a critical eye, and set high expectations for yourself and others, but that does not give you the right to be harsh (and even offensive) to others. I'm a perfectionist myself, so I understand where you're coming from, but things don't quite match up. You can blame part shortage and disappointment in your own abilities for your attitude, but it's been some time and nothing has changed. There is a place called Bricklink, and it's more than possible for people to improve; I was less than talented with LEGO until I first came to this site and looked around. However, it seems that rather than trying either to improve your skill, quality and self-esteem, or trying to accept yourself which leads to the same goals, you instead try to set yourself up as a critic here, and put others down to make yourself feel better. To quote (I think Plato) "...Time will change and even reverse many of your present opinions. Refrain, therefore, from setting yourself up as a judge of the highest matters." Admittedly, these are not the 'highest matters', but the point is the same-- you shouldn't rate someone down without perspective on where they are coming from and how they tried. Sure, there's plenty here on MOCpages that isn't beautiful to me, but if someone tries their hardest, there's no REQUIREMENT to do anything. Sure, positive feedback is important, but would negative be better than nothing at all? You can't say that because something isn't as good as the 'Dragonstar' or 'Nova Taurus' that it isn't good-- these are some of the very best works on MOCpages, by true masters who have the time and effort to put into their work enough to get what they want out of it. I'm not meaning to offend, Areetsa, but you certainly do make many excuses for your actions here, almost to the point where it's too many. The issue with 'National Socialist German Workers Party' propaganda only reinforces my point. Delete this comment if you like, but it won't matter; au contrare, it will simply prove my point further. Hopefully, I've made my point without being too offensive (which was not my intention).

Quoting John Moffat You do sometimes come off with a condescending air.
If I truly understood the meaning of that word I might be able to agree or disagree. If, of course, I really cared what my air smells like.

Quoting Dali Zheng I agree with Keith Goldman. "Your skill is way out of wack with the reviews you leave." I'm pretty sure a lot of people agree your skill level isn't great and the fact that you're giving negative reviews to better builders than you is wack.
Think of it this way; I've always had high expectations, both of myself and others; I can't truthfully say I've ever made a moc I was truly happy with the day after finishing it; they never really come out right. There is also the fact that the first few mocs I saw online were amazing things; 'Explorer', 'Dragonstar', 'Final Flight Of The Nova Taurus' or whatever it was, 'Shogun', etc. etc. That means that I USED to associate mocpages with quality, which also means that the switching of expectations is rather difficult. And, of course, I've got a rather critical eye by nature.

Quoting Jibby Fluff Nice. Love your Space Pirate. What's your favorite Metroid Game? Mines Prime 3!
Metroid 2: Return Of Samus. Or, Metroid. The original. Because one just never gets old, and the other lets you fight giant flying scalp eating monsters.
Quoting JD Luse Pretty good Areetsa! Hope to see more like this.
Thanks. Well, I plan to do Norfair next. So yeah, you'll probably see more in this vein.

Quoting Keith Goldman This is ok, but just barely. Your skill is way out of wack with the reviews you leave.
Time, experience and PARTS tend to have the same effect on building skill; in other words, I'd be the first to say this needs a lot of work, but I'm sick of rooting about looking for grey and green bricks.
Quoting GooGoo GaGa THE Great Lego King keith is mean... lol well nice moc
Of course he is; he wouldn't be THE Kieth Goldman if he DIDN'T act nasty, would he?
Quoting Al is The Greatest I agree with keith.
Anyone with a name like 'Al Is The Greatest' doesn't get an opinion.
