LEGO Octodad Preliminary Designs

Posted by Octodad , Jul 11 2014 · 137 views



Finally rendered some rough images of my current design for a LEGO Octodad set. The minifigs lack most of their printing, since I don't have nearly the skill to attempt it. The only printing applied is the face for the titular character.

It is, unfortunately, a pretty bland design based on the aquarium, the setting for most of Dadliest Catch. The included minifigs are Octodad, Scarlet, Stacy, Tommy, two Marine Biologists, Joe, and the Chef. It's a lot, so I'd imagine if this made it to the end they'd probably cut some, which is a shame, because I felt I included only essentials. Also included is an orange Octopus to represent Octodad in the level Shark Naked, as well as the hammerhead shark featured in the center tank.

That's not light grey, it's white; POV Ray seems to render white as a sort of grayish off-white. Additionally, some of the pieces are purely wishful/convenient thinking. I doubt a clear flickfire would be in the final model if it made it that far.

Any comments and criticisms would be appreciated.


The Damage Report

Posted by Octodad , Jul 07 2014 · 153 views

The total for my birthday Bricklink splurge came to $113.36, including shipping.

That's..... actually less than I spent to build the Micro Manager. Guess I didn't actually splurge any more than I usually do. :P

Got some good pieces, though, including a bunch of Technic beams and such in assorted colors, which will lower my dependence on black or grey versions of them, thus allowing me to be more colorful.

I also got a bunch of tan, so maybe I can attempt my Gundam in true Buster Gundam colors like Makaru wanted.


me birthday

tomorrow is my birthday. im turning 19 years old, which is to say, pretty darn old. im not ready to be even more adult than before.

proving im not ready to be an adult, i'm about to splurge on a bricklink order as a birthday present to me. im probably going to look for pieces in colors like medium blue and orange in order to give myself pieces i can MOC with that aren't neutral colors with red highlights.

Honestly, you can make this sound like some kind of crusade for justice all you want (I'm going to hope that some of how you worded it is just meant as hyperbole to make a point, though?), but it just comes across to me as being anti-fun and anti-imagination.


There's a time and a place for joke entries to place high in a contest (actually no there really isn't but w/e), but the first site-wide BZP contest is certainly not one of those times.


The first entry offended my eyes.


Well, this was probably in the bottom 3 comics I've read in my life. Didn't make much sense, and some things were hard to read because of the coloring and font style.
