Pirates Will Be Pirates by AnakMoon

I really liked where you were going with this design. The only things I found wrong was your wall design and the waterfall. I'm just go...

In my spare time, whenever I'm not in class or teaching one, I like to build custom mini Lego figurines. When I was about 5 I got my first mini scale Lego model. The only thing I can remember about it was that it was some kind of haunted train ride. Anyways, as the years went on I kept getting more and more Lego's, and as I kept getting more Lego's my building skills grew just as well. But what infuriated me the most was the mini-figures that came with the model kits. It's not that I "hate" them or anything like that, it's just that I hated the way they functioned. Let me explain. What I wanted out of a mini figure was something that was fully functional and pose able. With the mini figures provided, the only parts that could move were the hands, feet, and the head. But even those parts were limited in functionality because they could only move in one direction. So, I took it upon myself to make a custom Lego mini figure that could exceed Lego's own mini figure in every way possible. When I started designing my mini figure I had 3 goals in mind that I still follow to this day. 1. Size 2. Functionality 3. Fun factor. The models I first designed did meet my first and second rules, but when it came to my second rule I wasn't able to meet my standards for quite a while. After a few years, my designs grew and grew into something completely new that had spurred many new ideas and possibilities for me to take advantage of. With a few minor tweaks, I had developed anew style of mini figure design that easily met all 3 of my standards with flying colors. To this very day, I still use the same model frame for all of my designs. There isn't a custom design out there that has beaten my design at all. At least that's what I think from what I've seen from other designs.

G.R.V.- 01 Galactic Titan by DanteZX
G.R.V.- 01 Galactic Titan
The Galactic Titan is the crown jewel of Galactic Rangers series. When designing this new mech I already had a few ideas in mind in what I wanted to see come out of this project. The first was that it had to have a color scheme that was not only unique, but also fitted in with the other models. What I decided to do is that I used a very rare shade of blue that was only found in the Galaxy Squad sets. It's like a deep azure. To help make it pop, I added translucent teal pieces to help illuminate the blues, and to help it blend easier with the white. Aside from the color scheme, the mechanics within are quite impressive. My older mechs have all used just regular ball and socket joints, but for the titan I used the ball and socket system with click joints. That way I could add much more weight, which I know for a fact regular ball joints can't handle. The Titan though has a full range of motion and can make some very cool action poses. You can expect to see those in the future. As for weapons, I have designed any type of firearm or melee weapon as of yet, and I don't know if I will. The original idea behind the Titan was that it was going to be a close quarter melee fighter. Overall, I am extremely proud of this model, and I think it's the perfect way to finish off the good guy side for Galactic Rangers, and I hope you guys will stay tuned in the future for new additions to the series.

The titan will be coming out tomorrow as planned. Don't miss it.

Well, that time has finally come. If you've ever wanted to get a sneak peak behind the scenes on upcoming projects, you can now find me on twitter, facebook, and instagram. I'll be using all three of these pretty regularly so be sure to like, follow, subscribe, etc. The reason I'm doing this is because I feel now that I have a good enough following on here that I would like to branch out even more now, and step my game up.

Like I said before, I'm really taking the necessary steps to improve my work, and I want you all to see that. So if could help me out in this new endeavour I would greatly appreciate it. Now the last bit of news I want to cover is the release dates for some upcoming models. Next Wednesday 7/29, the last model for the good guys of Galactic Rangers will be released. I'm going all out on this last one, and it's going to be a big bang for sure. For the week of 8/5 the model for that week is up in the air as of this writing. I want to get started working on my new Silver Fang Dragon, but I don't know if I have enough parts yet. I'll get back to you guys on that one. If I don't have the parts I need, I'll start working on the bad guys for Galactic Rangers. I've got a few ideas sketched out already, and they're looking quite mean in a good way. That covers everything for now. Like I said before, please drop a like or a follow on my pages so you can stay up to date. It's always appreciated. Until next time, cya. ^^

Here's a much closer look at the analysis chamber, and the alien that is being housed inside. You can also see the robotic hands inside I mentioned earlier.
