Default It's Back - StarCraft Lego

Remember my old Lego efforts many months ago? I finally got my full collection back, so I decided to complete my collection!

I realize these pictures suck, sorry.

Valkyrie

http://i443.photobucket.com/albums/q...Picture004.jpg

http://i443.photobucket.com/albums/q...Picture007.jpg

The Valkyrie is identical to the model from several months ago. It went through several redesigns and began as basically, a box with wings and a window. It was remade to be smaller and more streamlined several times. The missile launchers are mounted on either side of the window. Ultimately, the Valkyrie was quite simple to design.

Siege Tank

http://i443.photobucket.com/albums/q...g?t=1233187134

http://i443.photobucket.com/albums/q...Picture009.jpg

I really had no idea what to do with the Siege Tank, so I tried to wing it. I think it turned out fairly well. The main problem is that the wheels don't match, but I didn't have enough to use all of one type, so I mixed and matched. Two foldable legs slide into the sides of the tank and are partially covered by hatches. The tank barrel also points up, allowing the tank to transform into Siege Mode - that was my main focus, making sure it could do that. I realize the tank is quite bulky, sue me. Also note there are hatches that open for the driver and gunner, but they're hard to see. Overall I am aware that this does not look exactly like the Siege Tank, but I'm confident I captured the same "feel".

Siege Tank V 1.5

http://i443.photobucket.com/albums/q...Picture020.jpg

http://i443.photobucket.com/albums/q...Picture021.jpg

The tank turret and barrels have been made larger, to be more tank-ish than gun-ish by the scale of the tank body. The cannon has also been moved forward to be closer to the center. The tank is also much more flat. Overall, it looks much more like a tank now. I realize the gun is set a bit too high off the tank, but this is needed so it can tilt up for Siege Mode.

.....and? This is not common knowledge?

I still have that half-finished Battlecruiser lying around here, it'll be finished. The Yamato Gun stills works on it! But now my current project is the Goliath, which is going fairly well. It's very different from the Siege Tank, in that rather than one large vehicle, it's a walker, so I'm making the arms and legs and body separately, then am going to attach them. The Goliath will sport an opening cockpit, spinning arm miniguns, and shoulder-mounted missile hatches that will open and close.

Goliath V 2.0

http://i443.photobucket.com/albums/q...Picture026.jpg

http://i443.photobucket.com/albums/q...Picture025.jpg

http://i443.photobucket.com/albums/q...Picture024.jpg

http://i443.photobucket.com/albums/q...Picture023.jpg

http://i443.photobucket.com/albums/q...Picture022.jpg

The original Goliath I built was larger, and was about as tall as the Siege Tank - counting the added height of the arms and the missile launchers, taller than the tank. But the body was basically a block, and the arms and legs were way too large. I wanted the cockpit to open the front, but this proved impossible so a hatch in the back was added. In general, it looked ugly, and couldn't stand up because it was too heavy. I wanted four key features for the Goliath - it had to stand, have the guns, the missile hatches, and opening cockpit. This Goliath had two out of four.

This Goliath V 2.0 is much smaller, about 2/3s the height of the old one, with shorter arms and legs, a smaller and more compact body that yeah, still looks like a block. The lowered weight of the body and arms, along with the use of better joints for the feet, actually allows this Goliath to stand up without any supports. Due to the flimsy joints connecting the arms to the body, it's a bit of a balancing act and it can fall over, but once you position it properly it does stand up, as you can see in the pictures. The minigun arms spin around, the hatches for the missiles flip open, and the cockpit opens as well. This Goliath is superior to the first in leaps and bounds and has all the features I originally wanted.

Correct, but back then I only had the Valkyrie and Wraith finished.

I also decided I'm gonna redo the Battlecruiser from scratch, just not big enough.

You appear to have a sufficient amount of standard lego collections, but perhaps you should integrate a few of the Technics sets into your models. Not only will you get more custom pieces, but a lot of the standard Technics pieces will look nicer and closer to the real thing.

Oh, I have a just as many Technic and Bionicle pieces as I dpo normal legos. I may integrate some Bionicle parts into the Goliath later.

Battlecruiser operational

I had a half-finished Battlecruiser with the head and shaft lying around, but decided it was too small and redid the whole thing. This battlecruiser is about three-times as large, is about three times the size of my siege tank, and is massive overall. I had a bit of trouble with the "wings" at the back, not entirely happy how they turned out, but I was low on blocks and had to make due. As you can see, the head of the ship has an opening hatch to reveal button for a cannon that fires a projectile out a hole in the front of the ship. This Battlecruiser has a functional Yamato Cannon!

Interesting battlecruiser. Looks a little long and skinny though. (You could chop out some of the middle and use those blocks for wings, I guess.)

The wings/laser batteries for the cruiser need to be alot thicker. I like the Goliath.

I know, but I was very low on blocks and had to make due with what I had. Had I the blocks, the wings would have been much longer, wider and overall larger, and I would redo the laser batteries entirely.
