Coming in hot

There really isn't much to say about this ship by Kelkschiz, other than it completely embodies all that is Blacktron.

Its both dangerous and awesome. What more do you need?

Back to Mata Nui

I've already established that I am a fan of Bionicle. Heck, I would say I am a huge fan of it. and I am one of those rare AFOLs who build in both your normal Lego bricks and Bionicles.

Now, often my love for the system brick (specifically Blacktron) and Bionicle collide, and what results in Blacktron Bionicles.

Some of these guys are not new. You may recognize the elephant headed one. but a couple are new.
One of the best things to come out of the 2nd Generation of Bionicle, was the melded black and neon green mask.

I don't limit myself to just Blacktron 2 (Though anyone can tell I am biased towards it), I do build in the original Blacktron every now and then, even in Bionicle.
All this Bionicle build has sidetracked me from other half completed projects, one of which is a Blacktron SHIP....

More pictures of the Bionicles can be found here, if one is interested.

Just doing a flyby

This ship will bug you more than any mosquito, and if you try and swat it, it it probably destroy you.

I'm not a huge fan on insect looking ships (probably because I am not a fan of actual insects) but this MOC by Yet Another Moc Account is pretty awesome.

PRIZES!



I have been pretty lax in this years contest, there are only 5 days left in the contest, so I'm going to extend it till the end of the month.

Also prize announcement!

This year's prize is going to be a bit different. instead of a set, or bunch of parts, the winner will get one of the engraved bricks pictured below (Winner will be able to choose which one they want)

Also, they will get a custom shirt from Redbubble (I will order it after the winner gives me their shirt size. T-shirt only.)

Also, a reminder to those entering, contest entries should be posted in the contest thread over in the Blacktron Flickr Group.

Backup please.

Who needs some back up?

This lovely build called "Blacktron Backup" by Richard LEGOherz is really beautiful. Simple in design it captures the feel of a guard standing being on duty is rather relaxing and then adding in the lighting makes it all come together.

I'm now curious about this guys story and where he is.
It's that time of year again! (Assuming it's an odd numbered year, anyways,)

The Color it Blacktron Contest V!

Rules:
-Build a Blacktron creation. (1, 2, or even 3)
-No clone brands
-Build more Blacktron creations (1, 2, or even 3)
-LDD entries allowed
-Keep building Blacktron MOCs (Castle, space, Bionicle, as long as it's Blacktron, it's fine)
-No size restrictions
-Why aren't you building yet?
-Third party items (Such as Brickarms or Brickforge) are allowed.
-Contest closes May 21 (Yes, there is a type in the above image.

This year, being the 5th contest, I plan on the prizes being better than usual! An announcement will come later, once I have decided what it will be.

Tanks for nothing!

With a name like Blacktron Liberator, the Blacktrons are obviously liberating something, and I feel a bit sorry for the poor Space Police who are facing down this tank by Kelkschiz.

Not sure if that yellow cockpit is an official Lego part, but It certainly looks good here. A trans yellow one might looke ven better, but last I checked, I don't think it comes in trans yellow.

Soon....

Since this will be the 5th Color it Blacktron contest, I plan on making the prizes more enticing than usual. Stay tuned for more information!

Welcoming aboard a new author!

Please all give a round of applause as we welcome in my brother, Purple Wolf, (Or Onvermel) who is now an author of Color it Blacktron!
And those are just a few of his sigfigs....

I figured since he let me in on his blog (The Onvermel Report) it was only fair I return the favor.

Deep in the frozen wastelands of Krysto

This isn't a fancy MOC of any kind, such a simple Ice Planet tower in the snow with a Blacktron crash survivor. Some great photography by Adam Hughes

Obviously this leads up to this from the 1993 Lego catalogs  (Or perhaps its the other way around?)

Too much too late

This SHIP was built for SHIPtember last year, but the builder had an unfortunate incident, so wasn't able to post it online until recently. It's too bad, as this is quite the impressive Blacktron 1 SHIP.

The only issue I have, is the top is a bit bland. It's quite flat and bland, especially when compared to the front area of the ship.

Monopod

Looks like I'm getting in my "One post per month" average. Oh well....

Frost built this monopod for Febrovery. I don't have much to say about it, other than it doesn't look functional...

Just under the wire

I still did a bit of working on it after the new year, but this stands as the last creation I built in 2016.

Really, is there anything else to say? I'll probably have some more close up pictures at some point. Maybe.
