The best darn TablesCRAPs in the history of nothing!
About this creation
So as you may or may not know, I've not been building much. I get started on a project, and never really finish it. I am in the middle of creating a new Domo for this Halloween, and I will get that guy built. Anyway, let's get on with it.
MOCpages, Brickset and Flickr
I'm on all three, and I did not make a YouTube one since that would require too much work, and they were only for the unsubscribed trailer of my YouTube Channel.
Pickaxe Micro Ship
Made mostly out of parts from the Death Beetle after I took him apart.
Micro TIE Fighters
These were originally for a contest entry in The Contest Group, because that's where I always go for contests! It was going to be a scene from Empire Strikes Back, but then looking at all the colors I know I don't have the parts for, I decided to change it to my Wizard of Oz build.
I did want to get a sweet pic of them in space though. I added binoculars and made some forced perspective lasers while that other idea was in my head. PIC OPENS IN FLICKR!
Just a piece of sCRAP. Oh, and I'm not a big photo edittor. I make sure the background is white and maybe brighten or darken pictures with all picture effects. I used Paint to merge two pictures together. So what if that shadow is cut off.
This picture will open in Flickr. It was in response to when Flickr, out of the kindness of their hearts, decided to spring a random update to the whole design without alerting anyone. It was such a major change and it made everyone a little upset for a day or two. For some reason, I thought of some goth minifigure to make and it was just supposed to be a joke. And this is supposed to be a guy, so think about that.
This page also opens in Flickr. They were just a bunch of random things I made probably a year ago. It's just a bunch of old gray colors and I made a weird thing that looks like a street light, a laser chair, a ship engine thingy, and a BAWSS CANON!
Failed Work #1
Another thing for The Contest Group. This time it was for the Under the Sea contest. My idea was to integrate the raising water levels, but with a twist. Aliens are in the Arctic Ocean and are creating new tectonic plates. They are burning through the crust, releasing magma creating warmer waters that the polar cap cannot handle. It then would cause the water to flood over civilizations so that they could colonize the planet. See, rather than just come in and start blasting away, they would try to flood the planet and only when there were still civilians would they start attacking. Their planet's water supply had become dry from another alien species colonizing their planet, and in a chance to save their race, they're taking us out. Global warming is just their cover.
I was going to use four baseplates. The one above, the one below on the left, and two of the one on the right. There was supposed to be an overlooking center and even a little tower, but I was getting a little over my head.
Failed Work #2
This was an idea that came when I came across the Jurassic Park III Spinosaurus Spine. It reminded me a bit of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. It was supposed to be a cannibal island of minifigs, but non-yellow minifigs. They ate yellows! How terrifying! I also wanted to use Clone Wars because they could be like make-up around the normal black eyes. There was going to be greenery, a tree with a dead guy hanging in it, and our lovable buddy Phipson being stuck on a rotisserie with a burning fire bellow. Very much like Dead Man's Chest. The reason why I gave up on this was because after not doing anything for two weeks but initially making the minifigs and the decapitated decoration, it's just not worth trying to keep going for it.
Close up of the chief's chair.
So here is where some explanations of the figs.
Chief Palpatine: He looks fantastic. It started off with needing a chief for this idea and what better than an old shriveled guy?
Quinlan: Needed spider paint on his chest and horns on his head as a thing done to look more like the gods or whatever. It's 3rd world stuff.
Mace: Just another guy, but nothing too special.
Keeper of the Flame Savage: He was going to be carrying a torch and he reminded me of the guy from Dead Man's Chest who screams "AAAAAH!!! FI FI!!!" He needed to be decorated in ritualistic markings
Chief Wife Ahsoka: Yeah, just thinking about the idea of Ahsoka being Palpatine's uh, mate *GAG*, is just so wrong, but it made sense and she looks pretty good with the headdress instead of the white and blue horns.
Luminara: She just didn't have anything special, I just needed another female. I would have also liked to have Barriss involved and same goes to Aayla, but I don't have the right minifig pieces to make them unique enough from they're Star Wars selves. If I had a Shaak Ti, maybe I could have used her somewhere.
Dead Sacrifice Gunray: Mix a Geonosian Zombie with Nute's head and you've got a pretty convincing sacrifice.
When you get bored enough and you have a lot of these clear bricks, you'd make something like this, too. It looks really pretty with my blue LED flashlight shining on it.
Lastly, this is where our sCRAPpy journey ends. It a thing that uses of total of 12 piece to make.
It's really quite nice, and you are free to use the design. I have yet to actually use it for anything, but I happened to discover this on my own and it just looks cool.
So anyway, thanks for taking the time to look at everything. Please Rate and Comment, and tell me what ones are your favorites.
Quoting Halhi 141
I think that the underwater MOC doesn't really seem underwater though due to the blue. It seems more like an alien world, an underwater MOC should have tan ground.
Oh well I'm sorry this isn't geographically correct to you! Go complain to the LEGO Print Designers of the 1990s. Also, I was going to be using a blue light on the MOC so that itwould actually look like it does underwater, which is dark and everything is blue until you get close enough with a white light. I wanted to use the baseplates because I would never use them for anything else; you try using those things!
That's a neat idea with the studs on all sides cube, I've tried to make something like that but never succeeded (of course the Lego dice can work as well...) I think that the underwater MOC doesn't really seem underwater though due to the blue. It seems more like an alien world, an underwater MOC should have tan ground. That clear tower looks really good though.
