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...

Hey there guys. Dante here with an update on Glactic Rangers update. First off, I just want to state that for the month of August and September I will be posting digital versions of the models. This is due to me not having a job right now, but come October, you will be seeing physical versions again. When I have enough funds I'll build the models from the digital designer. Now for the month of August, we're getting big. Really BIG! I won't give it away just yet, but if you've seen my planetary defender. Well, lets just say it's much larger than that. ^^

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.
