Recent building

Posted by Bfahome , in MOC Dec 27 2016 · 166 views

Recent building I have a bunch of MOCs that I've made over the past several months that I just haven't posted because I actually like them and I want them to be represented by decent pictures, and my marginally-upgraded Tracfone isn't the standard I have in mind. So I've only shared a couple of pictures of some of them. One of them is Doggo (Brickshelf gallery when public) who I've only posted a few silly images of in other places, but isn't assembled anymore because I decided to take the upper body and use it for a Cat Noir build. So there's the images of what there was, because Doggo might not be built again for better photographing.

Speaking of Cat Noir, I think I managed to figure out a workable head for him thanks to Aanchir's suggestion of using bananas as hair. It may not be at the scale I'd like it at, but it's something. Too bad he won't be done for this year's Convention Circuit superhero theme (at least at first) because I need to order some of the parts from BrickLink. I recently ordered some Galidor parts from a seller and they got lost in the mail somehow (either mis-delivery or theft upon delivery), so that kind of killed my enthusiasm for that temporarily, so it might be a while. I'm also waiting to get the Star Wars constraction Chirrut figure, because he includes a light flesh #3 CCBS shell that I want to use as the face. It's a shame that the Exo-Force arms don't come in tan and that tan banana pieces are so expensive (there were only two included in one Harry Potter set a decade ago) because flesh face with tan hair would look way better than tan face with yellow hair.

The image attached to this entry is a quick thing I built to go with a set of legs I made using Galidor pieces and the Star Wars CCBS shins. Those I'll use on Cat Noir as well.

Other things I've only teased elsewhere and some I haven't shared at all. Some of them go together so I want to post them all at the same time.

Going to be shipping the usual stuff for the Convention Circuit again, but with the addition of my mini SYSTEM Makuta head, Chompy, Roodaka, and a BioniLUG thing. I don't think I ever fully showed off Roodaka, just once a while ago and then at BrickFair 2014. Pretty sure I've made some changes since then so that'll be a thing to see I guess. I won't be sending Golden Key on the circuit because I feel like he's run his course and the tenuous stability of his head build isn't worth the trouble. I'll probably keep him around for a while though, since I don't see any big need for any of his parts right now.

So that's that I guess, not much else to say on the matter. Still building, still enjoying it, but preference and circumstance keep me from sharing much of it outside of a few snapshots here and there.

(Oh and I'm starting more work on my LEGO Ideas proposal, so that's something too. Future!)


Building tips requested

Building tips requested Looking to build this fella, have the body basically worked out but hit a massive wall when it comes to the head.

Anyone know of any good techniques for things like the hair? Or even the head overall. It should be about 1.5x-2x the size of the average Kanohi to be accurately scaled to the body.

This probably won't be useful

This probably won't be useful But it's interesting sort of.


I <3 Galidor pieces

I <3 Galidor pieces Seriously, these things are so fun to work with. Weird enough for them to be challenging, normal enough for them to fit.

15% off your First Order (And, of course, the obligatory "costs an arm and a leg" joke.)


So I had a dream about Majhost last night

Posted by Bfahome , Nov 18 2016 · 256 views


It was really brief, but apparently the owners had just merged it with Brickshelf all those years ago instead of taking it offline but nobody had realized, and all you had to do was append something to the Brickshelf URL to access all of it.

I miss Majhost.


6 month Premier competition (ok nvm)

One of these things is not like the others.

Instead of the usual pick-my-title thing, I decided to try something different.

In the square above, there are four colors. They are all different.

Now, there are two questions I have for you about them:

1. Which one of these four colors is my favorite, and why? Be specific!

2. Which one of these four colors is different from the other three, and why?

You have until Wednesday, Nov. 23 at 11:59pm eastern US time to post your answer.

After that, I will look through the entries and see it anyone got it right. First one wins. If nobody got it right, I'll pick the person who was closest. And, if nothing else, it'll be a random participation award. Fun!


This time, I'm only allowing one guess per question per person. Choose wisely.

You cannot change your guesses once submitted.

For the purposes of this contest, I have changed my blog settings so that comments require approval to be posted. The comments will not be approved until the contest is over. This means that when you make your guess, someone else can't come along and just copy it, or edit it into their comment from earlier.


Okay well since that only lasted about 45 minutes I don't feel like there's any reason to keep everyone in suspense for the rest of the week. Probably should've made it so that a correct guess constitutes one entry into a raffle but oh well. I'll try better next year.


So I got an external backup HDD

Posted by Bfahome , Nov 14 2016 · 150 views

Been planning to send my MacBook in to get its battery replaced since I updated to Sierra. The suggested cycle count after which to consider replacing it is 1,000, and I'm over 2,000 now.

(I have been using this laptop for five years, so I suppose this being the first maintenance performed on it is a good thing.)

One of the things the Apple site suggests is backing up all your data before any repairs, in case of problems.

So I bought a 1TB external hard drive off of Amazon. Perhaps it's a bit overkill, but it wasn't much more than the smaller ones and I wanted something I could also use in the future.

Anyway, I split it into two 500GB partitions, one to use as a backup for all the Mac stuff and one for all the Windows stuff on my Bootcamp partition. Still a bit overkill, but hey it's nothing that can't be repurposed down the line.

The payoff here is that I named the two "disks" Tikki and Plagg and here they are.

music I like

TV show unrelated. Good chill music.

I also recommend a couple others I've posted before if you have similar music tastes as me and need to listen to something mellowish.
