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...

LEGO Inferno Part 2: Robot Mode

If you're new to this page, do check out Part 1 of Inferno to view the vehicle mode. Done? Great.... let's proceed ....

LEGO Inferno Part 1: Vehicle Mode

Inferno is an Autobot fire engine from G1 Transformers cartoon series. The inspiration to build him came while I was working on my previous MOC, Towmecha.  This is due to the core design of truck-cab-as-robot-chest, and also availability of 4 pieces of ladder from my LEGO set 60060: Auto Transporter.

Towmecha TM-6656 , Highway Defender!


Afters years of resisting social media (read: no Facebook account), I managed to focus on doing the things I like with minimal interruptions (so it seems). But this came at the expense of not getting much exposure . This year  I made a point to mingle around more because it's getting pretty lonely here .

I managed to join a few local AFOL groups and I am enlightened with the passion all over, especially on fellow MOCers and collectors of vintage sets. So this was brought to my attention again....

Yes.... my very first LEGO set as a kid! I'm not sure if having a different "first LEGO set" will change my subsequent destiny much , but this set 6656 is the seed that started it all.

While remisnicing the good "young" times, a bulb just lighted up on top of my head....

100,000 Hits Special!

My blog finally hit 100,000  visits !!  Well  that was about 2 weeks ago but I was holidaying in Port Dickson when that happened. I was thinking of a special post to commemorate that since then. Why not I let my ensemble of MOCs do the talking =)

Lead by my first Optimus Prime MOC in the middle  (building instructions here), the earliest MOC of the lot, a BIG BIG THANK YOU to you guys out there for the support.
