An old spin on a new thing

These two little hovercrafts by P3-K4 are just a remake of one of the little hover things for the aliens in the Alien Conquest line, but simply by being Blacktron, they are that much cooler. These would make great entries in the Colour it Blacktron contest, but wrong time of year...

Here we go again

I know I haven't to diligent in updating as of late, but updates are going to be very few for the next little while, as I am currently having modem issues.

At Long Last...

I first started collecting Blacktron about September 2004. That was the year I actually discovered Blacktron.

And now, after 8 years--

Wow. 8 years. Doesn't seem like 8...

Anyways, after 8 years, I have finally aquired the last Blacktron II set! I finally have a copy of 1462 Galactic Scout. Yeah, Galactic scout was the last one for me to aquire. Smallest set.

Um, yeah....

Still only have one Blacktron I set. Going to have to fix that at some point.

Ensign Paul Smith

Time to go out of the usual program and pick someone low ranking...
NAME:Ensign Paul Smith 
BACKGROUND: Paul Smith is the nephew of a Blacktron who defected to the M-Trons. An only child who's parents were gone a lot, Paul had to fend for himself much, hence he found a love for tinkering with things, especially engines. At the age of 16, he simply left his absent parents to join the BMA, and strangely was accepted at a young age. He graduated middle of the class, and became an engineer. The Alpha Centauri is his second assignment, and he is looking forward to hearing his favorite sound, the sound of a engine going full out.
BEHIND THE SCENES: Named after a younger brother, this Minifig is related to an M-tron by virtue of that younger brother loving M-tron, and having a M-tron fig with the same face, known as a 'Smith' face to my family.
ACQUIRED: Alpha Centauri Outpost, VIA Bricklink, circa 2006

Last Minute

As I type this, I am in a hotel, last night before Brickcon. WOOOoo00t!! That is waht is so last minute.

The BT Razorback by Genghis Don is anything but last minute. In fact, he is jumping the gun with this rendered Vic Viper. Someone needs to remind him that NoVVember isn't till next month.
