Cuusoo of the Day: 2012.06.06
A wall, a dropship, and a gantry
Pick of the Day
The Great Wall
This is a clever concept. First off, the wall looks great, but its got a trick to it, Each square can come apart using pins. This allows you to rearrange the chunks of wall in whatever pattern you like or add more copies of the set to get a longer wall. Great Job
Lunar Dropship & Pilot (inspired by the SW Planet sets)
I have actually been working on a very similar idea to this. Great minds think alike.
Avengers IRONMAN gantrymachine2.0
This is so very pretty but ultimately pointless. It is, I assume suppose to invoke the scenes where machines remove the Armor. This is done very well with Choisanghun's first Gantry. This one presents a very very long walk in which...well, nothing happens at all. There is a lot of subtly in how you can manipulate the parts, but it seems to be that it would really only works well with stop motion animation. My point is, it is a very high quality build but I think it looses itself in its own complexity over function...which is why I did not pick it for the top spot. If this was just the back 16 studs...
