  1. This will be a long post, so I will divide it into sections, about a bit of my life story and it is closely connected to Monkey Island. Please bear with me, I think you might find it worthwhile by the end. Part I As with many kids of the 80’s, I grew up with LEGO sets around the house, and being the youngest of three siblings, I did end up “inheriting” a bunch of them, so it has always been part of my life for as long as I can remember. In 1990, I was old enough to start choosing and owning my very own LEGO sets, and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect for the alignment of two things that ended up being absolutely crucial in my life story: LEGO and Monkey Island. Back in 1989, the LEGO Pirates Theme was introduced, bringing along with it a bunch of innovations to the toy line (like the very first minifigures with facial expressions other than the classic smiley face). The catalogs and box art for the theme were wonderfully evocative, with Caribbean sunsets, deserted tropical islands, and swashbuckling action pitting heroic Pirates versus nefarious Imperial Soldiers. I mean, just look at these, don’t they make your imagination soar? Within a year of the introduction of this new LEGO theme, my older brother got hold of a new Graphic Adventure (as we used to call them back then), after I had spent several evenings in the previous year sitting by his side at the computer while he played and finished Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade. It was a favorite pastime of mine. This new Graphic Adventure was, of course, The Secret of Monkey Island, and the cover art alone by the great Steve Purcell was enough to completely capture my imagination with the promise of the adventure ahead. My brother installed and booted the game (which took a while back then) and once the establishing shot of Mêlée Island appeared on screen, with that wonderful main title music, I was hooked for life. But what absolutely sealed the deal, was that very first cutscene we get when Guybrush first exits the Scumm Bar, showing LeChuck in his ship’s cabin: I knew that location looked familiar somehow and it didn’t take long to connect it with the flagship (no pun intended) set of the LEGO Pirates line: the Black Seas Barracuda, which had a great cabin at the aft, with large latticed windows, that was totally reminiscent of Lechuck’s (it even had the map on the wall): This LEGO theme was no longer a somewhat generic Pirate themed toy line, this was now, to my young eyes, an official Monkey Island LEGO theme. And what perfect timing it was, as the upcoming Christmas would be the first time I would be allowed to choose and own my own LEGO system sets (no more Duplo or Fabuland). My brother finished the game in about a month and the memories of being by his side through the whole game are indelible. We had the same routine with Lechuck’s Revenge a year later, while LEGO kept expanding its Pirate line with even more sets. And regardless of whether I owned the sets or not, most of them were renamed and re-themed to fit right into the Monkey Island Universe. So this became Lechuck’s Ship: This became Mêlée Town: This became the Scumm Bar: This became the Governor’s Mansion: This became the Cannibal Village on Monkey Island (those statues): These two became Woodtick: This became the International House of Mojo on Scabb Island: Puberty did eventually hit, and my interest for LEGO waned a bit, although it never really went away. But at the turn of the century, I discovered a website called Bricklink, which finally made possible the purchase of individual LEGO bricks, as needed, without having to buy whole sets to get the necessary bricks for any given project (which is, obviously, not cost effective at all). My passion for LEGO was re-ignited by the prospect of large scale custom models, regardless of the very tight budget I had available, as a teenager, for buying LEGO bricks. Immediately, my dream project became quite obvious: a full, minifig scale model of what probably is my favorite, most immersive setting in all fiction, the one that has lingered the longest on my mind and been expanded upon the most by my imaginary wanderings: Mêlée Town! So I took all the loose bricks I had (plus the accumulated funds generated by two birthdays and Christmases, totally spent in buying a few thousand bricks from Bricklink) and I was finally able to build Mêlée Town’s Low Street: Guybrush and the map seller: Men of low moral fiber: It does look rudimentary compared to the high standard LEGO has set in these last few years, but this truly was the first step into a larger world. End of Part I
  2. I am a Lego lover along with all things Star Wars. This is an Ebon Hawk build, and I need 10,000 supporters in order for it to possibly make it into production. So if you find it worthy, go support it, and share it. Thanks so much! Here's the link. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/67635
  3. Hi guys, I'd like to ask for your support on LEGO Ideas website for the Scumm Bar's project. It's still under development, so if you have any ideas, suggestions or advice, they are welcome Thanks for your support! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/72407/updates
  4. I thought you all might appreciate this. I am trying to gather support for this build on Lego Ideas. Follow the link and support and share it if you like it! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/67635 Thanks!
  5. Hello! I just want to show you my new Lego project. It's the Macrotaur from Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis videogame from LucasArts. http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/48865 If you love it, you can support with your vote. I hope you like! Thanks.
  6. Hello all, Here is a Corellian Defender I made for my friends at Bioware. Initially I designed it to not accept minifigs but instead be in scale with the statuette piece (depicted below). Then the Fury came out (This actually happens to be in perfect scale with the Fury), and it has figs, so I decided to go ahead and integrate them. The minifig integrated Defender is a little less authentic to the game, but I like it more actually. The red top to the cockpit should be Grey for instance but I like the aesthetic better with the White/Red/White/Red. As you can see in the above image the whole cockpit canopy comes up...I was thinking of putting in some "hydraulics" here but I like the idea of supporting two figures more...so there is not any room for the hydraulics I was thinking of. I am really proud of the sliding out mechanic used for the C2-N2 pod. Here are some of the custom figures I am designing to go with the Defender. the Trandoshan is Qyzen Fess, who is a companion to Jedi Consular in SWTOR. The droid is C2-N2, and is the droid that comes with the ship. Satele (and official Lego minifig) is holding of the statuette part I mentioned earlier. I would love it if they produced these in trans blue for holograms. The one in the image is a rendering. This design is meant to be visible form all angles, so I used a lot of SNOTTING. The ships is bisected down the middle and flipped. Its been a lot of fun. I look forward to any feedback, good or bad. If you really like it you can support it on Cuusoo right here. Cuusoo is a Lego website where people can suggest new sets. If 10,000 people support the idea then Lego will review the concept and might mass produce it. This (rather poor) image shows the size of the Defender relative to the Official Fury. Here is one of the images I used as the source for my build presented to allow comparison. Thanks to KielDaMan for this side by side comparison image The future: Although I have minimal space to do it in I am going to attempt to make retractable landing gear and have the Cargo/Droid pods open indirectly...well will see what I can pull off. For my next Star Wars project I am working on the Mantis.
  7. What have you been into in the past couple years? Right now? When I was a kid, I loved Lego; more specifically a theme called Bionicle. I knew (or think I knew) everything about it for its first couple years, and it brought me infinite joy while I was into it. Eventually it was replaced by Star Wars for the next 3-4 years. I loved that to bits, priding myself in knowing all the obscurest facts about it etc much like with Bionicle. I havnt been into anything for the past year or two; my love for Star Wars has died down, but I still enjoy it.
  8. LEGO® Indiana Jones™ Whips Up a New Adventure If you didn't get enough LEGO Indy the first time, you now have something to look forward to.
