Quickie of the Week #13: 4 days to LOM LUG Exhibition @ Kidzexpo 2014

Last week I saw myself cloning Blurr and Scavenger to be exhibited the upcoming exhibition under the upcoming Lego fans of Malaysia (LOM) LEGO User Group (LUG) banner,   as part of the highlights in Kidzexpo 

Well, making a copy of Blurr was pretty eventless.. with a bit of retooling on the shoulder . however.. .Scavenger required a bit more work....

Quickie of the Week #12: Preparing for Upcoming TCE Kidzexpo 2014!

As a proud member of Legofans of Malaysia (LOM) LEGO User Group (LUG) ,I am given an opportunity to showcase some of my beloved MOCs in the upcoming TCE Kidzexpo 2014 in Midvalley Megamall, Kuala Lumpur , Malaysia (my home country, obviously =)

This event will take place on Dec 05 - 07. For those of you who happens to be nearby (business or leisure trip or simply living in Klang Valley), do drop by to take a look. You might see me lingering around the hall admiring MOCs made by my fellow LOMers too.

I have much to write so this post is not really a "Quickie" after all. Let's go!

Quickie of the Week #11: I love mini ball-joints! and some design highlights

In my current project, I am slowly endearing myself to the mini balljoints introduced by LEGO recently (found in Mixels and Chima Legend Beasts)... and my conclusion; I love them I'm gonna stockpile them by the dozens for my future use.

The component above started off using rigid hinged parts but  I couldn't make them to fold to desired position to form  robot feet,  so I modified it by introducing the mini balljoint.

LEGO Beast Wars Dinobot Part 2: Robot mode

Please check out Part 1 for the beast mode and transformation steps before you proceed.

LEGO Beast Wars Dinobot Part 1: Dinosaur mode and transformation sequence

This project is a commission piece requested by a fellow Transformers fan. Even though I am a TF fan myself, I preferred to build LEGO Transformers inspired from G1 characters from the 80's series, and Japanese Transformers from the early 90's.  And that's about it. However, I seldom turn down a good challenge although I'm not really a fan of Beast Wars series.  

Before I get started , I googled photos of Beast Wars Dinobot and checked whether I have enough brown or similar colored LEGO parts to pull this off....

Quickie of the Week #9: Work in Progress / design highlights

Let's start with these common pieces =)

The pieces above are common hinged plates with frictions. (let's call them 1-finger hinge and 2-finger hinge respectively). 

In my current project, I am not using them as hinges however...
