Is it weird that when I see a really cool ship like this my first thought is to imagine it mounted to a pylon in front of a green screen with a big motion control rig swooping a camera past it, then the shot that would result from that motion control pass? This is the Daedalus, by builder Rat Dude, and I want to see it in a movie! The detailing is exquisite, with a perfect blend of large and small detail to convey the scale, and just enough studs to let you know it’s LEGO.
This beautiful craft by builder AdNorrel would be right at home in Episode IX in my opinion, it just has a Star Warsy vibe to it. Especially with that nifty bit of lighting and photo editing on the first image. Is that Bespin I see in the distance? I hear they have excellent carbon freezing capabilities there.
It's nice to see a SHIP appear on the scene in a month that's not September, when there's so many the signal to noise ratio makes it hard to feature them. What would not be nice is to discover this beast by builder lysanderchau bearing down on you in open space. Heave to and prepare to be boarded, you're no going to win that fight.
Some day I suspect we'll have colossal ships like this one from builder I Scream Clone roaming the galaxy and beyond (if we don't blow ourselves up first). I have to wonder what the men and women on these journeys will experience, what they will see and do. And if any of them will fight a Gorn just outside of Santa Clarita...I mean another planet.
"Aura to mission control: This is Captain ZCerberus. Orders received, and coordinates plotted and laid in. Time to roll the hard six..."
"Good hunting, Captain. Control out."
Or something to that effect. That's what I figure builder ZCerberus might say aloud when getting ready to swoosh this baby around his living room. And a few blaster noises, naturally. Anyway, zoom in to see all of the details; from color blocking to greebles. Lots to enjoy!
What would Christmas be without a new Battlestar in the fleet? Well, that's what my old pal Garry King pondered about eight months ago when he started this 8 foot, 35K+ piece project. Yeah, you read that right. This SHIP is his own design, but those of you familiar with the reimagined BSG series will notice some cues from the Valkyrie-type battlestars, especially in the flight pods. In other shots, however, you can see some Pegasus features, and of course, the Galactica. Overall, it's another tremendous achievement by Garry, with tons of edited pictures on MocPages, so check it out!
