Around the anniversary date of the Titanic disaster, I told you guys about finally having achieved a childhood dream - and how my wallet suffered in the course of doing so Well.. not that I've changed anything on the ship itself; but I've added some features that I think make the ship look more like a 'generic' model on display, rather than just sitting on a chest of drawers (if that's the correct term). As with my first topic, I put in a link to my brickshelf account where there will be more pictures to see this time around as well - but as I write this the folder is not yet public (takes a day or two, so should be accessible on the 27th of April at the latest) so you might have to wait a bit. Link: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=573715 Enough chit chat - here's a picture of what you can expect to see - but be advised this is my very first attempt at building water in motion in LEGO, so I might change small things with time ^^,
Hello there! At the age of 27 I finally managed to bring a childhood daydream to life which took about 4 months because my left hand underwent surgery at the beginning of March due to a work injury which severed a tendon in my thumb. Allthough I've made previous builts of this iconic ship since the age of 11, it's only ever been with the bricks I had on hand - so imagine my wallet's sudden discomfort as I found out about Pick-A-Brick... Around $900 USD and a ton of research via fotos on both Google and in several books later, this is the final product of my current creativity capability. (Keep in mind the price is only for the new bricks; not including the majority of the hull and it's supporting interior I already had my hands on). Some liberty has of course been taken, as the scale isn't fit for every aspect of this project, so some parts of the superstructure have been changed for accomodations. Accessories such as benches have also been placed somewhat random. Measurements: Width: ~16cm (6.29 inches) Length: ~156cm (61.41 inches) Height: ~32cm (12.59 inches) from keel to top of smokestacks. Weight: Estimate is at around 8-10kg, but won't know for sure until my hand is fit enough to lift it. Amount of pieces: Somewhere between 8-10.000 bricks. As I haven't resized the pictures and they would be way to large for me to put them all in this thread, I'll instead put a link to my Brickshelf account where there are more to be found (you might have to wait a bit before the files go public, as I uploaded them today) :b Enjoy!

...I am their saviour... For dark eternities I have waited in this dark chamber. I waited for the sign that heralded the arrival of the demons I was meant to slay. I have waited, my skills wasted in such a confinement. Yet I wait, for it is the will of my creators that I do so until it is time. Then, it was time. The chamber shook, a tremor that originated in the bowels of the planet. Metal upon metal, rock grinding against rock. And then I felt it. The sign. The sense of the energy that my creators told me I must destroy. The walls of my chamber, so solid when I am at rest, now fall like paper before the might of my full abilities. I hurl discs of light, bright flashes against the wall until I can tear it with my bare hands. Freedom. I search for the nearest source of the energy. After many days of travelling over the bright sand, I find it. A demon. Deep blue and orange, it stares up at me in confusion, before speaking its broken language from a hidden mouth. I attack, grabbing a shoulder and hip and tearing it apart like a child's toy. The energy is silenced. Yet, off in the distance, I sense more. Many more. They have arrived on the planet as my creators feared they would. My purpose is to stop them. Destroy them at all costs before they can hurt the inhabitants of this world. I toss the remains down, grinding the demon's masked face into the dirt while taking its primitive weapons from its metallic fingers. Protodermis. The word appears in my mind as I study the tools, further confirmation that the demons have arrived. A little extra pressure cracks the mask in two, leaving one half dangling morosely from the demon's face. Marendar. I am their saviour. Marendar. OK, I have a MoC that really is huge. I struggled to come up with a name and storyline for it, but after seeing that it's twice as tall as the largest Toa I own, I've decided to make it the Toa-killer Marendar. The Moc is roughly 49cm (20inches) tall, with a wingspan of roughly 80cm (32in). So, needless to say, it was difficult to get it all in a single photo. Images: Front With Dead Toa Front With Wings Folded Side Back - Wings Furled Back - Wings Spread Head Detail Arm Detail (Yes, that is a rhotuka) Wing Detail Leg Detail (The sword is a sword strapped to his leg. He has two.) Torso Detail Size Comparison (Yes, he is holding the Matoran. No connectors or other tricks.) Action Pose! This version of Marendar has great strength, equal to a Toa using a Pakari (but less than a Pakari Nuva). Despite the wings, he cannot fly, the wings only able to slow his fall. They mainly operate as counterbalances, allowing him to manoeuver deceptively quickly. He can also snap them out or flap them strongly enough to knock over smaller beings. He can create and throw white-hot discs of energy, which can slice cleanly through most forms of protodermis. Finally, his thick armored skin makes him near-invulnerable to elemental assault. He may be able to use Kanohi, although he is too large to wear them. PEACH!
I went to see the rerelease of Titanic, and I can say one thing: The 3D did nothing. Yes, the $18,000,000 that James Cameron spent on the 3D was not worth anything in the slightest. I hope he makes back that money, because if not...I'll leave it at that. -CM
