Now that I started the Lego Pokémon Group (join here!), I feel the need to build a lot more Pokémon models. After digging through my mental recycle bin, I decided to take another stab at Umbreon, because my past attempt was so miserable it wasn't even worth posting. Umbreon is a Dark-type Pokémon that evolves from the ever useful and adorable Eevee. Although it is not the most powerful member of the Eevee family, Umbreon boasts an unusually high defense and special defense, making it an ideal meat sheild for when you are trying to heal you're team or stalling a linked battle in the hopes of your opponent's Gameboy run out of power. Yes, I've tried to pull this trick before ; ). Trivia Fact: When agitated, Umbreon can spray toxic sweat from it's pores. Gotta love that lighting.
A reference picture. Umbreon always reminded me of a coyote.
This is so great... although I would shorten the nose a smidge... but it's 98% amazing! I've got a Lego Pokemon group on Flickr, but there are barely any lego pokemon posted on the site at all. If you ever make a Flickr account, it'd be great to have your stuff in there.
Nice! I like eevee and all it's evolutions. I like how you made the ears, and using the jewels as eyes is rather effective. I may try to build some pokemon out of bionicle pieces in the future, so I'm gonna join your pokemon group. =D
Nice Umbreon. I love Pokemon, but I've forgotten most of them (ironic, since I used to be a Pokemon encyclopaedia). I never got around to getting an Umbreon, or any other of Eevee's evolved-forms. I did get around to getting a Steelix though (and a Crobat)! I like the simple-ness of this LEGO creation. No special parts or anything, but really looks like the subject.
When I was scrolling through the new MOCs, I only saw the top fifth or so of the preview picture. I still immediately thought that it looked like Umbreon from just the ear tips. You must be doing something when someone knows what it is from only a portion of a small image passing by at a glance.
