Edward Blake, The Comedian, in his patriotic leather armour. The blue shoulder armour is a helmet from Power Miners line, and the American stripe cloth on the other side is constructed using few parts. The visor is connected with 1x2 TECHNIC liftarm on the back. It's completely purist but not very stable. I very happy with the Collectable minifigures series 5 gangster head. It captures The Comedian's attitude quite well.
(Actually, it has been done for two weeks now, but I didn't manage to photograph until today.)
This is, as you probably have noticed, another MOC concerning my favourite band, Eläkeläiset, that plays humppa (old Finnish dance-music related to fast foxtrot) covers of other people's and bands' songs. Here's a couple of examples of band's humppas. Their logo is Humppaava Poro, the reindeer that does humppa, which I built using pneumatic hoses. Here's a reference pic. I'm very happy with it.
Kristian Voutilainen batters the drums (the drumsticks are pieces that connects FABULAND figs' legs...), Martti Waris bounces the bass, Lassi Kinnunen abuses the accordion, Petteri Halonen strums the organ and Onni Waris plays the electric violin while he murders his organ. The merchandise master Pekka Jokinen is selling his treasures in the corner. Merry fellows!
Make sure to check the Brickshelf gallery with lot of pictures when it's public.
The family is on the trail and has stopped on a small river with vital brown trout stock. Father is just catching his second fish (Mother is gutting the first one) as he is a skilled fisherman. Little Tomer has only gotten some water plants, but that doesn't bother the little fellow.
I wanted to built a fireplace similar to this. I'm quite happy with it. There's also some guideposts about the area and the nature.
Professor Marcellus Gartland Ostrich in his prototype Neptune power suit. Ostrich is an old whimsy gentleman who wanted to be a great hero, so he did some dramatic changes to his father's old scuba gear, including imposing brass muscles and metal gloves. He also forged a trident commensurate to ancient sea gods. Ostrich's adventure didn't went as well as expected, but at least he got some funny looks from ladies on the streets...
General-governor Justanoff Crawford is the leader of the troops of Unstoppable Steam, elite regiment of the Royal Army. Crawford is a master tactician and very famour for his ambitious mustache. He is said to be an ancestor of Governor-commander Justunus, leader of the "Invasion", the biggest military mobilization in the history of the man. Some also believe he has some sort of connection with the legendary Mustache man...
Bomber Julian Flattery Twomey, the "Eagle Girl" of the Royal Air Force. Twomey uses high-tech propeller flightpack and delivers the bombs to their destinations by hand. In the beginning she wasn't allowed to joint the army because of her gender, but she later showed her courage on a private stunt shows. Twomey usually wears men's bomber jackets.
Bateleur-18 Steamfighter in the Galapagos Turtle wars and developed an interesting theory about Origin of species during his time on reserve. Darwin has his own-made flying armour with top-class life-support systems and utility belts.
Fortunately today I managed the take photos of my newest Bionicle MOC, Bladis. This KA-BLAMMO Skakdi moderator is Bio-Klaani's law enforcement's heavy shooting arm specialist also known with codename "Razorblade". He usually works with another moderator called Same, a long and slim Selakhikan warrior who prefers edged weapons.
The design is quite a basic, wide-shouldered skakdi build. Silver isn't my favorite colour, but at least big variety of Bionicle pieces comes in that colour, so I had many opinions about the armour plating. The MOC is around as tall as Guardian, the another important Skakdi on Klaanon. The spine however is bigger. I wanted to achieve a sharp and Mohawk-like look and HF stingers worked well. There are also some silver Bohrok eyes on the lower back.
The heavy arms were very important part of this MOC. The big cannon, whose barrel can be detached, is stun-grenade cannon that Bladis used recently to save (With not-so-good result) bedfellows Snowie and Kepe from angry mob of cannibal matorans. The big gun uses parts from air pumps from Racers sets few years back. Very good pieces!
The weapon on the another photo is Bladis' trustworthy Zamor Fist, an ideal cannon to shoot the protodermis out of Nazorak roaches. Bladis also has his green moderator stone, a handful knife and handcuffs (thanks thanks thanks, HF) to capture nasty persons.
