  1. Official Designation: D1G-R Flickr Album Here​​​​​​​
  2. As requested by several people, here are the instructions for the MOC​​​​​​​
  3. Once Xarton was the Protector of Okoto's Earth region, but during Makuta's uprising he fell victim to the temptation of power that was promised when he aligned himself with Makuta. Makuta used his dark powers to transform Xarton into a stronger being with massive claws and impervious armor. Xarton was sent by Makuta to seek out Lothar, the ancient guardian of the Earth region, and retrieve him for Makuta to corrupt, but he was never heard from again after he descended into the caverns of Okoto.

  4. I went ahead and threw the artbook into my personal dropbox so people can still access it while BZP's getting their new link set up.
  5. The light is supposed to be his eye, in order to fit with the aesthetic set by the previous MOC. Someone did point out to me that the holes do look like eyes and mouth. I can assure you though, that was completely unintentional They're purely for looks, inspired by the back fin on the Kaiju Mutavore from the movie Pacific Rim
  6. A renowned warrior from the distant planet Mechaniron, Pylon leads his legion of brutes into battle against all who oppose him. ~~~ Flickr Album ~~~ So this MOC took about two months to build, nitpick over, and rebuild to get to the point it's at today. I can personally say that I'm pleased with the way Pylon came out in the end, being originally driven by the usage of Hero Factory 1.0 pieces in different ways (I mean, the leg armor is still leg armor, but it's upside down now). The longer I took with him, the more the MOC evolved from a much smaller drone-like character into a hulking, ax-wielding brute. In the story I'm developing, he is part of the same robotic species as Spry (a MOC I made earlier this year), as well as in the same universe as Carmine Wheeler and the Gasket Brothers.
  7. ...Meet the cure. Okay, not the cure, but more like a topical ointment to reduce the swelling and itch. Hi Tom!
  8. I finally finished it. It took a year and four months, but it's finally been completed. Originally, my project consisted of installing ramps, platforms, tunnels, shade structures, potable water sources, planting trees, and installing new pet waste stations (courtesy of DOGIPOT). The completed project was much refined based on the amount of volunteers I could muster and the resources available. The shade structures and potable water sources were the first to go; the shade structures wouldn't be able to be delivered to the park and would be too complicated/revenue consuming to work in my project and there was no way potable water could be piped into the park. The trees didn't happen because the park is very particular about the trees planted and never gave me a list of the trees they would like in the park. In the end, the pet stations were installed, as well as the ramps, platforms, and tunnels. To make up for the trees, I refurbished the benches in the dog park. I've received an immense amount of positive feedback from the park, who's seen an increase in usage, and from the dog community here in Naples, Italy. I also had to delay my project six months for a work permit to be pushed through. Twice. That it turns out I didn't even need. Anyways here are some pictures of the completed project, to be honest I'm incredibly happy and relieved to have it finished. Now that it's out of the way, I just have to face my Board of Review (I've finished all of my paperwork, merit badges, and had my Scoutmaster Conference). Hopefully I can get this all done before the end of 2016...
  9. Yeah, I printed out a few minifig face prints on some label paper and stuck the mouths on the tires. I really wish Lego would just release a sheet of minifig face decals, they'd be a fantastic resource for things like this.
  10. Prepare for trouble... ...And make it double! or this could be Attack of the Clones idk The Gasket Brothers are infamous members of the Mean Wheels gang. "What are they infamous for?" You may ask, bumbling around their native planet of X-Speedia and somehow succeeding in their nefarious deeds. As far as gangsters go, these two are as incompetent as they come, however, they are incredibly loyal to each other and whoever they're working for. Currently they serve as co-representatives of the Mean Wheels gang for Carmine Wheeler after a treaty was signed between the Heavy Treads, Mean Wheels, and Motostrikes to dominate their planet and essentially run it under the leadership of Carmine himself... Flange Gasket is probably the least competent of the two brothers, preferring to take a stab at problems immediately rather than wait and see how things play out from a distance. Manifold "Fold" Gasket is arguably the most competent of the two brothers purely because, to a degree, he thinks through how to solve problems first rather than get up close and personal with them as soon as possible. Whenever there's talking to do, Fold's the one who seemingly does it the best while not annoying and aggravating everybody else in the room. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So if you didn't guess it from the blurbs I threw up there to give a bit of characterization to these wheelie cool dudes and the world they live in, I suddenly regained my interest in developing it and potentially tying it into another series of MOCs I hope to work on that inhabit a universe outside of BIONICLE or Hero Factory. This is all part of a plan I have for BrickFair Virginia 2017, where I plan to exhibit some of my favorite MOCs from the past year or so that garnered a lot of positive feedback or I felt were swept under the rug in the midst of everything kicking back into high gear with BIONICLE's short-lived revival. I hope to ultimately have a little setup in the BIONICLE section with Carmine Wheeler, the Gasket Brothers, and two other gang representatives from the Heavy Treads (construction-themed gang) and Motostrikes (motorcycle-themed gang). I've already got the wheels in my head turning on how I want the last two to look, so be sure to check back when I hammer them out!
