Watch out for asteroids

 Or in this case, watch out for what may be lurking inside the asteroid field. Gaurav Thakur has been featured before on this blog, And I suspect will again, if creations like this keep popping up in their Flickr stream!

Resistance is futile

 This rather abstract looking squared rover really gives of Borg vibes, don't you think? An old Febrovery build by Walter Whiteside Jr. I guess he couldn't wait a few more days til this years Febrovery?

The shipyards have been busy

 Apparently Rubblemaker has been busy! I previously posted his Trident, but he had apparently built three more very swooshable looking ships to go along with it!

Its hard to choose a favorite among them, but I'm going to have to go with the one in the back! It's just the most menacing of the lot.

NoVVember continues, even here at home.

 Every so often I build a Vic Viper of my own, and normally, I am quite disappointed in the results. This year, I can finally say I built a Vic Viper that I am happy with.

In case the inspiration wasn't obvious, I was inspired by 6981 Aerial Intruder, and the Millennium Flacon. So I named the ship Aerial Falcon. Inventive, I know.

Of course I can swap out cockpits, so here's a shot with a more traditional Aerial Intruder look.

The combination of the two worked really well in my opinion.

NoVVember already? I swear is was just last week...

 And it's the 15th AnniVVersary of NoVVember, too. And of course, someone, Rubblemaker, had to do a Blacktron VV.

Mind you, it's not quite a proper Viper in my opinion. The prong's aren't prongminent enough, the cockpit is too large.

But it get's bonus points from using a Bionicle part, so that evens things out.

Was this for SHIPtember? Let's say it was.

The builder doesn't offer ay description for this Renegade remake, but with a build like this, do they need to?

I suspect it could have been built for SHIPtember, that time of year when builders build SHIPs in a month.

Chugging along the vast expanse of the moon.

 Can a steam engine work in space? I don't think so. Does that make this a silly crossover creation? No. This Blacktron Train by Joseph Joosten perfectly exemplifies this blog. Taking something not Blacktron, dipping it into some black, white, and neon green paint, and voila! It's now coloured Blacktron.

Arr matey's it be time to sail the high seas!

 I posted this here MOC of mine to Flickr months ago, but it seems I never be posting it here, where it belongs.

Good thing I waited, for today be TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY! ARRR!

It be a Blacktron coloured boat. Obviously I be replacing the trans neon green with just your regular lime green, but that be a compromise I be willing to make. I didn't do all out and beyond with me other Blacktron Boat, which also be a Bionicle one.

If your not careful, the ship will fall apart

 This Blacktron Striker by Chris Perron, a famous builder if there ever was one, looks a tad fragile, but that's not what I was implying in the title. No, I was talking about the excellent use of those large sized brick seperators that he used in this build. Bloody brilliant, and took me a couple moments to realize what he had done.

Oh, and those wings are quite snazzy.

Blacktron gets Grounded

 Even Blacktron have to have a place to rest and relax, and since a man's house is his castle, what better place to kick up your boots than an actual castle?

Built by a builder named Arnoud van Huffelen, this is a Blacktronized version of the castle set Wolfpack Tower.

Old Ideas, new parts

 I got this sent to be by a follower right here on Colour it Blacktron! I had gotten a used copy of this idea book, still have it, back in the day. Marcus built the little "Blacktron speeder" using parts only from the new Blacktron Cruiser. Well done sir!

Battrax Revamp

 I don't always build Blacktron 2.

And when I don't, I build Blacktron 1.

This creation came about simply because I was looking to use up some larger wheels, and what better use than a Battrax?

It has all the functions of the original set, and can ever swap parts around with it!

Blacktron Defender

 I was looking at the Lego TIE Defender and thinking, that is ripe for the Blacktronizing.

It's something I've been wanting to do for a while but finally got around to it. I think it turned out great.

Take your Blacktron on your trip with you!

 Ever thought of building a suitcase that could transform into a Blacktron vehicle?

Too late, yu Chris thought of it first.

A really mobile base for Blacktron. Brickbuilt wheels, smaller vehicles that fit inside, and of course, it all folds up into a carrying case. Because why not?

Super Galactic, Twin Pilot Patrol Craft "Aerial Avenger"

 If that isn't a mouthful of a MOC name, I don't know what is. But just like the title, the MOC is a combination of all the Blacktron 2 spaceships. This isn't the first time I have done this, either. It's in fact the fourth time. Blimey, I forgot about one of those...

I've tried to include as many elements from the sets as possible, like the dish on the cockpit from the Spectral Starguider, or the rotating blaster from the Aerial Intruder. The rear wings take elements from the Aerial Intruder, Super Nova 2, Allied Avenger, Alpha Centauri Outpost, and even Twin Pilot Craft!
