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.

SHIPtember round up

So, once again, SHIPtember happened. There was once again, over 100 SHIPs. And once again, There were Blacktron ships. (None by me, as most of my Blacktron parts were tied up in my Pulsar Requin) All three this year were Blacktron 1, and all very cool.

Adam Dodge had this super cool (And super modular!) Intercept Invader:

Jeremy Green has this microscale Reaper Class Destroyer

And thirdly, Michael Steindl also submitted his Missile Boat, which is one of my top 3 favorite Blacktron SHIPs ever.

No, I'm not dead

It's just been another one of those "Months where I have been lazy, and Blacktron creations have been few"

But enough about my life, you come here to see Blacktron creations, and here is a lovely little landing pad and spaceship combo by Stephan Niehoff
I love the rear wings, very reminiscent of a Bi-plane, but backwards! And by the looks of things, there is more to come, as the builder calls this Projekt "Blacktron II Special Forces" Part 1 "Fighter Class TALON"

Dream come true

Whenever I see digital creations, I always wonder what they would look like in the brick. It rarely ever happens that the builder actually converts digital to physical, but Michael Steindl decided to buck that trend!

Estimated time of interception-

-Is mere seconds.

Luc Byard has done a great rendition of the Blacktron 2's flagship vessel, the Aerial Intruder. I lvoe the original set, and it was my first Blacktron set I acquired, so I have a bit of a soft spot for it. I also find it challenging to build a good neo version or whatever of it, so I always appreciate it when I see others MOC it.

A couple of complaints, is the clear canopies, but the ones he used don't come in the wonderful trans neon green, and the lime. I am not fond of lime.

Space bikers

This nifty 'Space Bike' by ama77what shows that Blacktrons don't only ride spaceships and tanks, they can also swoop around on their bikes.

Another Wheeled Terror

Seems that the Blacktron are on some sort of ground invasion. Most of the MOCS that have popped up recently have been the wheeled variety. Like this Mega Core Magnetizer inspired creation by Grzergorz Ludwiczek called Turtle one

A bit more yellow and trans red would have been nice, but overall, quite a tough armored looking vehicle.

And the winners are......

First place in the Colour it Blacktron IV contest goes to the Blacktron Intimidator by Commander Beltar:

A pretty cool and nifty vehicle. I love the huge wheels and huge end. Also got some nice angles going there, and that Triforce symbol is awesome

Second place goes to the Fleebnork Extermination Mech by Purple Wolf:

A very complicated little mech, Had a wee bit of an advantage as I saw this one in person.

Please contact me if you want to get your prize!
