Return of Lego MOCs

My youngest is about to turn 3 so I can worry less about her putting crap in her mouth which means...it's MOCing time!

ROCKET RACCOON


Based on the upcoming GOTG movie and voiced by Bradley Cooper, can you believe they're making this movie? Marvel Studios is practically throwing 2nd and 3rd tier stuff at us Marvel Zombies but we're all like JUST TAKE ALL MY MONEY!

MINI, MINI COOPER & MINI VW VAN



Based on the mini versions of the Creator sets, with some improvisation on parts. With the bricks from my daughter's Friends set i could probably make a Mystery Machine...

MINI PIRATE SHIP


I had the boat part from a POTC set, and despite my love for all things piratey, it just occurred to me to try this out. Not shown here (tho i tested it out after taking this pic): if i stick a steering wheel at the bridge there's just enough minifig space to pull off a chibi version.

Mid Year TF Update

Been hectic at work, here's a backlog of robits I bought recently:

GENERATIONS COSMOS & SWERVE


It's amazing what IDW's MTMTE has done with 3rd tier characters like Swerve here, making him into a fan fave. So he's here (despite the not so recent GDO update - remolded from Kup) with Cosmos, with targetmaster partners (which on their own are pretty decent minicon type figures). Cosmos himself was last updated as a legends class, but its cool to see the design in larger scale, with better accuracy to Don Figueora concept sketches seen quite a while back. Which at that point plans to make a toy were aborted. Nice save, Hasbro.

GENERATIONS WHIRL


I've gushed on this guy in my earlier post about the G1 toy. Now that the anticipated modern figure is out, he doesn't dissapoint, faithful interpretating the G1 robot mode and pretty much dead on take on the original alt mode. He gets a bunch of add ons just like the G1 toy, and the design - partly due to the reverse legged posture - really exudes the psychotic jerk personality from the IDW comics.

GENERATIONS METROPLEX


To be honest, I haven't even the time to explore all this guy's features since cracking the box open. All I know he's impressively huge and detailed. One of these days I'll get around to putting on the A3 - yes, A3 - sticker sheet. This bitch is HUGE.
