Battlestar Blacktron

I really am terrible at this blogging thing.

Anyways, Geoff Horswood has combined two excellent things, a Viper form BSG, and, you guessed it, Blacktron


My only complaint is that the nose should have some yellow on it. A yellow plate high stripe would go a long ways.

5+ years in the making

Or at least that's how ago I originally built this MOC.

A revamp of 6832 Super Nova 2. I think this MOC was a bit ahead of it's time, as I feel it still holds up to many of my MOCs today. Probably why it stayed built for so long. I only just took it apart.

This is a small MOC, but the Super Nova was a small ship. I am happy with how I was able to make it an enclosed cockpit (This ship was actually built before that cockpit part came in Trans Neon Green.. I had to use the trans light green version at first) and overall, I kept quite close to the original.

Blacktron invades Radiator Springs

Two months since my last post.... not one of my best stretches....

Febrovery has rolled around, and Frost has a couple very interesting builds.

The 3 tooth plate at the front of the Blacktron-car makes it look like it has fangs. best part.

A very Merry Blacktron Christmas

I'm fairly certain the Blacktron Santa doesn't give you presents, but he will take your cookies. And your TV. And your couch. And your family if given the chance. Either way, Kalais is wishing you a merry Blacktron X-MAS

Rails will always be around

Even when humans reach the stars, we will still use good old trains on rails to transport all those goods, no one more so than the Blacktrons and their ill gotten goods.
This space train by Alkinoos is perfect. It still looks like a train, but it could easily be flying through space.

Not a nest you want to disturb

This ship and base were clearly displayed at some event which I can not pronounce the name of, but it also clearly is awesome.
I'm not sure who the builder is (photos are by one Emil Emilovic) so I will simply assume that the poster is the builder.

The base is equally impressive, looks almost Moonbase compatible. Sadly, these are the only photos I have seen, if any one has more drop a comment!

Borealis Might

Oddly enough, even though I am posting a SHIP, during SHIPtember, this was not a build for SHIPtember. It was originally built back in July and August, I'm only now just getting around to posting it here.
Clocking in at 103 studs long (about 106 with antennas) It isn't my longest ship by any means, but it does break a record. With 6 decks, it's my SHIP with the most decks, the previous record being that of the old Hammerhead 2. This ship is pretty much an enlarged, revamped, much better version of that old ship.

Capable of landing, these Hammerhead class ships are often utilized as mobile bases during the conquering of planets or cities. Capable of carrying two Allied Avengers, or six Supernova in the rear fighter bay, and either 2 Sub Orbital Guardians or 2 Tri-Wheeled Tiraxs in the lower vehicle bay, The Borealis Might is a small fleet unto itself, on ground or in space. The main weapons on the ship are 4 double barreled heavy cannons, and 8 dual blasters. Three nukes and 12 missiles complete it. 

The decks are as follows:
Deck 1, the top, Crew quarters.
Deck 2, More crew quarters, plus rec room/messhall.
Deck 3, Medical level/science lab.
Deck 5, Engineering (Located under the fighter bay in the rear section) and missile bay.
Deck 6, Ground vehicle bay

All in all, I'm very pleased with  this ship, it's easily one of my favorites I have built so far.

Blacktron Millenium Falcon

Ah Star Wars and Blacktron what an interesting combo, especially when it's not combined with the empire.
This was built for the TBB LEGO Millenium Falcon Contest and I must say it's got a lot of charm. Not to mention it's sporting a great colour scheme. I'm now picturing a Blacktron pilot with a white albino Wookie.

Rusting away in a junkyard somewhere...

Do you remember these two ships? The Beta Centauri and Delta Centauri?
Typically my MOCs (That was redundant....) have a shelf life of some sorts. Some longer than others, some never get broken. these particular ships were built about 3 years ago. One of them has been destroyed for over 2 years, but the other has survived this entire time, but not without modifications.

I now present the Theta Centauri:

I took the ship that survived, and modified it to look all rusted and decrepit. I also removed most of the guns, the back story being that the ship was decommissioned and all the useful components were removed.
 I've waited all this time to post the updated version, simply because I feel all the dust was necessary. It certainly adds to the affect, in my opinion.


Swooshing in from above

Uspez has built what he titles the "Blacktron Blasterizor". The colour scheme is spot on to the first Blacktron, and would't look to out of place lined up with the sets.

also, I think it must be great at blasting enemies, with a name like Blasterizor.

Time to stay up all night

Luc Byard has taken Peter Reid's classic turtle and "rectified" a few design flaws. More legs, a bigger tail, and about a million more times scarier. Don't go looking under your bed tonight....
I think I may have to build myself a couple.

Coming in hot

There really isn't much to say about this ship by Kelkschiz, other than it completely embodies all that is Blacktron.

Its both dangerous and awesome. What more do you need?

Back to Mata Nui

I've already established that I am a fan of Bionicle. Heck, I would say I am a huge fan of it. and I am one of those rare AFOLs who build in both your normal Lego bricks and Bionicles.

Now, often my love for the system brick (specifically Blacktron) and Bionicle collide, and what results in Blacktron Bionicles.

Some of these guys are not new. You may recognize the elephant headed one. but a couple are new.
One of the best things to come out of the 2nd Generation of Bionicle, was the melded black and neon green mask.

I don't limit myself to just Blacktron 2 (Though anyone can tell I am biased towards it), I do build in the original Blacktron every now and then, even in Bionicle.
All this Bionicle build has sidetracked me from other half completed projects, one of which is a Blacktron SHIP....

More pictures of the Bionicles can be found here, if one is interested.

Just doing a flyby

This ship will bug you more than any mosquito, and if you try and swat it, it it probably destroy you.

I'm not a huge fan on insect looking ships (probably because I am not a fan of actual insects) but this MOC by Yet Another Moc Account is pretty awesome.
