Outer Patrol Craft

Sometimes builds start with a plan. Long months of thinking, sometimes drawing out plans. Those also tend to be the big, large ships that also take weeks to build. Other times, I have parts, start fiddling with them, and all of a sudden, get his with some inspiration, and a couple days later, boom, a new ship.

This ship is one of those latter ones. it started with getting those tread pieces and that Technic spoiler in a bunch of parts from Value Village. Couple evenings of building, and I have this rather chunky fighter.

I am most pleased with the nose of the fighter, always wanted to use that black cockpit and it's reverse together, but never could figure out how.

More pictures here, if you are interested!

Blacktron goes real.

I was sent this piece of art, depicting a "real life" Blacktron 1 soldier. I enjoy seeing minifigs turned into real life looking people (Especially space minifigs), and this is one of the best I have seen (Not that I have seen many, but it's still great)
The helmet is especially awesome, and a great artistic interpretation.

Taking to the seas

Stephan Neihoff continues his "Projekt Blacktron II Special Forces" project (This is part 6, I have previously blogged a couple others before) with this boat on presumably alien world. The flora (Fauna? which ever one is the plant one..) certainly doesn't look like any on earth.

I am not normally fond of green water, but here it fits, as it flows with the general colour scheme of Blacktron 2. And that crane is the star of the show (or those cargo containers using the dice part and custom tiles)

I think he punctured those soccer balls

If he didn't, then I'm not sure how Stephan Niehoff attached them in this creation. But regardless, I have never seen soccer balls used for anything other than... soccer balls.

Space cop infiltration? TOSS EM INTO THE LAVA!

Not sure who the builders are (With a name like 3LUG, I assume there were 3 builders) or even what show this was displayed at, but who cares? Large Blacktron 1 base with monorail and lava!
More pictures can be found here.

New poll!

You might have seen it already (I know some people have) but in case you haven't, I have a poll over there ------>

Pick your favorite Blacktron theme! Let's see which one come out on top!

That's not something you see everyday

Blacktron Kong? Yeah, you heard me. Builder David Alexander Smith build a Blacktron Kong Mech. Words cannot describe this creation.
Seriously, what was going on in his head when he built this? The shaping is quite good, I should add.

Witty/snarky title here

Not feeling very inventive myself at the moment, and c_bossk sure seems to be in the same boat. Or at least somewhat, as he states that the design of this ship is form one Peter Morris. Either way, it's a cool looking ship.

It was bound to happen

I love Pirate ships, I love Blacktron, really, it was going to happen sooner or later that I would combine the two.

So here is my latest (sorta...) Blacktron MOC, the Floating Russian!

It is crewed by the B.U.C.C.A.N.E.E.R.S. or Blacktron UnderCover Crew And Needlessly Evil Everyday regular Scumbags.

More pictures on my Flickr, if you are interested

Consider me intimidated

I stumbled across this impressive Blacktron 1 spaceship titled the "Intimidator".

Great use of the Batman wings near the front area, and the cockpit uses some clever construction. Also, it lights up!

Head over to Brickshelf (People still use that?) to seem more of this creation by CP5670

Building a building

Building buildings is not one of my strengths. I have yet to build a good looking building, especially a spacey kind of building. Stephan Niehoff doesn't have that problem with this Command Center of his.

That little... probe? Drone?.... off to the right side is pretty awesome too.

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.
