I've had a little bit of time to waste:





Steampunk Rabbit Hunt





(not so) Steampunk sports car.

I'm starting to get the hang of this program. I'm afraid there are going to be more pictures to come.  Wink


Those first three pics are based on/inspired by/copied from (delete where applicable) This picture, yes?

That's the one!

And the car is inspired by the early Bugatti and Excalibur cars.
Right now, I'm working on a steam train. Don't know if I'm going to "Steampunk" it.

The Lego Digital Designer uses it's own file format and can't be loaded into a 3d rendering program. I've heared there are ways, but I have to look into that. For now, it's just fun building.  Grin

I think there must be a load of new sets coming out soon - I've noticed over the last week or two my local Sainsbury's and Asda are selling off Star Wars, Marvel, DC and The Hobbit sets quite cheaply - I got the Warg Attack set for less than half price and several of the smaller sets for a third or more off. Whatever the reason, it's boosted my son's collection somewhat  Grin

Well there are certainly plenty of large builds out there to offer inspiration if he collects enough.

"just" a gattling gun?  Cheesy
I was thinking along the lines of:
- a traveling zoo/circus;
- huge portable telescope

or microscope

- tied down king kong;
- a railway version of an aircraft carrier (with Wright Flyer's

Sadly, my pile isn't big and diverse enough for these designs. The Lego Digital Designer used to have an option to buy the needed bricks online, but they stopped this. For now, this is the finished product. I'm going to have to look into a rendering program where I can put in the designs and have it more realisticly rendered.

For the train and any other Designer project, I'm making a side-topic.

I thought buying the Legos was the point of the program.  Strange that they would stop that.

It was only a starting suggestion, giant gatling gun just behind the engine. (Gotta' love that alliteration)

Travelling Circus cages with steam-powered animal machines, "robo-tiger" etc. (similar to the giant spider in the "Wild, Wild West" film). Then other things following.

After seeing this I thought "I wonder if they've considered making Minas Tirith next?"

Of course I'm waaaay too late with that thought. These guys have already done the whole of Middle Earth!!

I think it was to much of a fuss to make custom boxes of LEGO bricks. Someone (or some computer/robot) had to view the lists, pick the pieces, do special colour/shape orders, box it and ship it. Especially if the order is just a LEGO "mini" resambling the maker.

A giant gattling gun (with bullets the size of "mini's") is a great idea. It could be the main gun on a battle train.

Capt Dirigible, thank you for that link - truly AMAZING work with the LEGO!

I wonder if the 'inventor' of LEGO had that kind of display in mind when the first blocks were produced.

I rather like how this thread started off with a slightly disparaging slant, and seems to have evolved into unbridled Lego love. Quite right too it's great stuff.   Smiley

Looks like I missed the fact the the sets had already been released. Here is a review for those who might be interested, and it comes with lots of pictures.

I don't think we need to question whether they're aware of Steampunk at this point. My guess would be yes...yes they are.  Grin

A little more thread necromancy for today...

I heard about this set a while ago, wish I had tried to buy it at the time (instead of waiting until I was looking for a birthday present for my nephew) because it's sold out and going fir £50+ on amazon, but thought I would still post it here because I think it's awesome and has a lot of potential for adaptation into steampunk style projects.

There's a Lego figurines collection of monsters. I figured it might appeal to people here.
