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...

Baby Royal Lightning Dragon ''Prop Stand'' by DanteZX
Baby Royal Lightning Dragon ''Prop Stand''
With each baby dragon I build, I always build a prop stand to hold it in the air, but to also reflect the nature of the dragon as well. For the Lightning dragon, obviously I needed to built something related to electricity. Like the dragons lightning rod tail, I decided to build many more elegant looking lightning rods as decoration. On top of that, I added different shades of blue that come to life when in bright light. In the picture above, the blue is a little on the dull side, even with all the light I had available, but if you bring it out on a sunny day, it is truly beautiful to look at.

Meet the newest addition to my custom baby dragon series, the Royal Lightning Dragon. Yes I have done this dragon in the past, but in a much larger scale. Ever since I completed the large scale version, I've been really excited to build the smaller version. Just like it's big brother, I gave the little one armor in some spots. There are a few pieces running down the spine, and on the jaw line, but the most noticable area is on the wings. To keep everything minimalized, while still retaining that lightning and edgy look, I went with golden scythe blades. I used so many that it took up my entire supply. Speaking of the wings, I went with a new skeletal frame that uses the same amount of pieces as before, but I can now get a larger wingspan with this new design. One thing I want to point out is the tail. If you've seen my dragons in the past, you probably spotted this immeadiately, but this guys tails acts as a lightning rod. The idea behind it is that whenever lightning strikes the tail, it travels through the dragons body, and it can be breathed out like fire. I even made the scales on his back look like electircal coils for when they charge up. The inner core of his body is also made up of transparent bricks to help represent that built up energy inside. Overall I'm very pleased with this new dragon and his look, but do you guys think of it? Sound off in the comments below.

Started production on the next Galactic Rangers model, the G.R.V.- 81 Phantom.
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.
