It's not quite what Batman said in The LEGO Movie, but it's certainly what he's think after seeing this MOC by Stephan Thomsen.
It's Blacktron Batwing. Does that make it a Blackwing? BatTron?

A simple little bit of Fig BARF by Tomas Marny, in which he utilizes all 5 different kinds of Blacktron torsos.
I may have a bias towards Blacktron 2, but the one utilizing the Blacktron 2 torsos is my favorite. Perhaps he should have gone for the lime coloured visor?

Question: How to make an X-Wing better?
Answer: Colour it Blacktron, and add more wings.
That's basically what Brian Lasso did with his latest MOC.
I feel the ship design evokes more of a Blacktron 2 style, with the bubble cockpit, and the split wings, but that logo on the back is so nicely done, how can I complain?

Swooshing in from the Blacktron 2 ship yards is this Cobra ship by Gaurav Thakur.
The beefed up cockpit, big beefy arms, lots of guns, what's not to like?
I am very much a fan of the triple wings, once did something similiar, but nowhere near as beefy as this one. Kinda reminds me of Trogdor to be honest.

Especially if you are on a wanted list somewhere. Zach Sweigart has built this sweet ship for the Blacktron Bounty Hunter from the CMF Series 19. There's a bit more dark grey than is normal for a OG Blacktron MOC, but with the Bounty Hunter at the help, it fits perfectly.
And it seems he already has a bounty captured!

Regardless, minifigures are awesome, and with all the parts available nowadays, one can make som many different looking Blacktron minifigs! I'm going to show you a number of mine, hopefully to get you all inspired to build your own, and submit them to the CiBtC 6!
First off, I have a few favorite members from the F.E.Z. team, plus my Sigfig. He's the elephant on the left. Read about their adventures here! These guys are a good example of what one can go with a bit of customizing.
Next we have a group of space Pirates, made using all official parts, no painting or cutting here!

And remember, if you build a Blacktron MOC in the next month and a half, you should enter it in the Color it Blacktron Contest VI for a chance to win some Blacktron!
Thursday, April 23, 2020
ALL SUBMISSIONS CAN BE SENT TO COLORITBLACKTRON@GMAIL.COM
Now, for contest rules. I am pretty loose with rules, but there are some.
#1: All MOCs must be Blacktron. If I see any Space Police, you will be shot into space.
#2: NEW MOCS ONLY! I don't want people submitting old Blacktron MOCs. Unless you are recolouring an old MOC into Blacktron colours (This is the case for category #5)
#3: No Megabloks. Cutting and painting parts are fine.
#4: Digital builds are welcome!
#5: Adhere to each category's specific rules.
#6: I reserve the right to change anything at anytime.
#7: Microscale is fine, with the exception of the minifigure category, obviously.
#8: Enter as often as you wish.
Now, for the categories again, but with MORE INFO AND PRIZES!!!!!
Category 1: Spaceship! Build a Blacktron 1 or Blacktron 2, or heck, even Blacktron 3 spaceship! It's really self explanatory.
PRIZE: 6887 Allied Avenger
Category 2: Ground based vehicle. If it moves, but stays on the ground (Or water even. Build a Blacktron sailing ship. I DARE YOU) it belongs in this category.
PRIZE: 6876 Alienator
Category 3: Base. It can be a base on the ground, or a space station in, uh, space. Or a spcaestation that has crashed on the ground. that works too..
PRIZE: 6710 Space Landing Pads. A good start for a Blacktron Base!
Category 4: Custom Minifig. No buildings, backdrops, or bricks. Unless it's a brickbuilt minifig, like a Brickheadz, or a Miniland figure. This will be judged SOLELY on the minifig(s)
PRIZE: A Blacktron 1 Minifig, a Blacktron 2 Minifig, alien Rench from the SP3 line, a CMF Series 3 Space Villain, CMF Series 11 Evil Mech, and a CMF Series 19 Bounty Hunter
Category 5: Recolour a official Lego set into Blacktron. The only sets that are exempt, are the Blacktron sets. Because they are already Blacktron. Reclouring a Blacktron 1 into Blacktron 2 set (Or vise Versa) is frowned upon. You can follow the original set as closely as you can, or you can take more liberties. If I feel the MOC has strayed too far from a set, I will move it to a more appropriate category. When entering, you must also send a picture of the set you have recoloured. At the very least, give me the set name and number. REMEMBER: ANY SET (Except Blacktron) FROM ANY THEME IS VALID. CASTLE. TOWN. BIONICLE. ALL OF IT.
PRIZE: A custom Blacktronized versions of 6648 Mag Racer, and 6125 Sea Sprint 9.
Category 6: Recolour and Old MOC. Take any of your own MOCs. Now, rebuild it into BLACKTRON. When submitting photo, must also have a photo of original MOC. Otherwise, I will put it into one of the other categories that it best fits.
PRIZE: 6894 Invader
Once again, the deadline is June 21st, 2020. Submissions can be made to email@example.com
Now get building!

Lego needs to make a new TIE Interceptor (and bomber for that matter). Lego also needs to make more Blacktron. Luke Schutt solves both those problems with his Blacktron Interceptor.
