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...

Goodbye old friend by DanteZX
Goodbye old friend
Galactic Titan,  November 25, 2013 - March 15, 2015. One of my all time favorite models to build, and both customize. As much as I hated to tear it apart, the parts will be used to make two new mystery projects. I won't give away too much, but one of them still involves the titan.

Just got a boatload of new legos today for my birthday. Bought some myself, but got an architecture set from Blastline99.

I had to make sure that I had at least one picture of the Progenitor in an attack pose. I'll be sure to take a few more pictures before I send this guy home.

COMISSION ''E.A.-81 Progenitor Mobile Suit'' by DanteZX
COMISSION ''E.A.-81 Progenitor Mobile Suit''
The E.A.-81 Progenitor Mobile Suit is a comissioned work I did for BlasstLine99. The overall goal for me was to take one of his mobile frames, and just have at it with a few added features. While the frame was in relatively new condition, it barely had any armor, but that was because the original intent was to keep this a lightweight mech. However, after seeing the new look, it wasn't hard to convince the owner to keep the new look. There was one thing the owner request that I do though, and that was to add a long range sniper cannon. I soon ran into a problem that I want to inform you all about. See, with most of my mechs I used large ball and socket joints for my mech, but if you look closely, this frame uses the new micro ball joints. I would have substitued for large ones but I ran short on supply. Here's the thing though. Micro ball joints work wonderfully, even on a heavily armored mech like this. The problem I ran into soon after is that when I had attached the cannon, the arm instantly crumpled. Even after dramatically shortening the cannon, the arm stil fell apart. So I decided to go with the original plan and make a short minigun, which even still pushes the weight limits. If your planning on making a mech around this size, and you have a ton of micro ball joints, go for it. But remember, you're best bet is to go with a mech that is more of a brawler, rather than a gunner. Let me know what you guys think about this mech, and if you've also tried using micro ball joints for large scale builds, and how you feel about it.

Hi guys, Dante here with some news for you all. If you've been visiting regularly I've been updating quite a bit recently. That's because I'm currently on spring break for a whole week! So I just want to give you all a heads up that all this week I plan to be uploading quite a bit. I've currently got four projects I need to finish and post. One of them you've already seen, but not all of it. I'll be uploading that one tomorrow. As for the rest of the week, I'll be posting until Saturday. I'm planning on visiting the lego store in Ohio. Maybe they'll have some large scale models like the Chicago store I visited a few years back?

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.

Ah no problem. ^^ Just glad to see some new jets for once. And strangely enough, before clicking on the image I could kinda tell it was your work. Keep up the good work man.
