Crazy goodness

While I am not a huge fan of those Crazy arms things, nevertheless they have been put to good use here.


Yes, it's just three minifigs, but these pictures are really good, so that's that.

Some beautiful shots, Ben Teoh

[Witty title here]

Yeah, my brain has taken a vacation, but Space Man Nathan has been building a lot of Blacktron MOCs, so his brain has been going full steam. Here is his BT-94:

And here are some motorcycles. They sure look speedy.

Taking out the trash

Febrovery sure churned out a lot of Blacktron rovers this year (Yeah, February ended a week ago, but my internet was out for most of that week) Flickr user Frost built this 'dump truck'

Not really much i can say about this, other than I like it. A lot.

Two kinds of tanks

We've got a walking one, very reminiscent of the AT-AT from Star Wars, by Rat Dude. He calls it the BT-HIW. I bet HIW is an acronym for something

(looks at description)

Yup, it stands for heavy Invasion Walker. Woe to the poor Space pPlice who have to face these monsters

And we got a more traditional tank by Stephan Niehoff. He calls it the Scorpion II. Apparently it's a tank from Halo, but sine I do not play the game, I will just have to take the builder's word for it.

Let's take that old shuffle bot-

-And let's make it walk!

If you didn't figure it out, this is my Neo-Suborbital Guardian. if you don't know what Blacktron 2 set that is, what are you doing on this blog?

This has been an ongoing MOC, I have even posted an earlier version on this blog. Compare here

The main difference is that this one is modular, and can have the cockpit switched around, just like the official sets.
This is one of those MOCs that is never done, always getting tweaked here and there, so you can expect another update in a couple of years ;)

Hey look, I build in yellow!

I know I have a general bias towards the Blacktron 2, but every now and then, I give some love to the original Blacktrons.

This ship was inspired by Star Trek's Klingon Bird of Prey, though I don't know how obvious it is. I may not have captured a BoP, but I feel I really nailed Blacktron 1 evilness.

And hey, I built two of them!

Crikey, them gators are bit stroppy

First off, I would never have thought i would have seen a Blacktron Crocodile rover in my life. Second, Blacktron Crocodile Rovers are awesome.

Way to go David Alexander Smith

The rovers are rolling in

Because it's Febroverery or something like that. Whatevr you want to call it, this little rover by Horcik Designs is awesome, and makes great use of a single one of those corner panels.

The Future Generation

I don't know how well known a fact this is, but versions of the Blacktron 2 boxes had, underneath the Blacktron logo, it said The future generation. It was obviously implying the fact that it was the 2nd Blacktron theme. that tag line immediately came to mind when I saw this MOC by Nuno Taborda

The clean lines and the obvious Blacktron 2 aesthetics, very much makes me think this ship is even further into the future.

Invader of the Future

That title could have a couple of meanings. Whatever. This Invader remake by Lego Dork is awesome. I love the way the builder utilized those castle wall pieces with the Blacktron Tri-force on it.
Like the original, it is modular!

Without a doubt, one of the best Invader remakes I have seen yet.

Take three!

Welcome to 2016, and we got more of the same, More Rey's-speeder-turned-Blacktron. The builder has restricted access, so I can only link you to the Flickr page. 

Here is the link. 

Without a doubt, this one is my favorite. This just has Blacktron 2 AND Rey's speeder written all over it. Well played Ben Teoh, well played.

More of what I was thinking of

Yeah, if I were to have Pimped Rey's Speeder, it would have looked more like this one by Commander Beltar:

Though the Blacktron 1 speeder that I posted the other day I feel was more true to the original speeder. And I am not sure about that fleshie head....

Stolen Speeders

The folks over at The Brothers Brick are running a contest to Pimp Rey's Speeder, but it looks like some Blacktron's got their grubby little hands on one.

Scott Hutchinson is the builder, and all I can say is, dang you beat me too it! (Though I would have done a Blacktron 2 version.)

A look through history

Here is the picture you have never been waiting for, all of my large scale, non fighter Blacktron II ships all in one shot! 

Technically one is missing, but you have to figure out which one it is! All in all, I count 23 ships, and 8 SHIPS.

It's a fairly poor edit job, but give me a break, it was my first time doing such a thing.

Join the Blacktrons, we have cupcakes

Star Wars mania is growing and growing, and the movie is still 55 days away! (But who's counting?)
 Jeremy Croft combines our two favorite evil empires into one with this cute little MOC
The minifigs are all cleverly done, but the backdrop is the star of this show.
