Week in Review: October 8th, 2012

Bit of a strange week.  All the new projects were presented on Monday and Tuesday, which I reported on already, but there are some numbers to look at ;)

 

 New Tutorial

I just posted a new Cuusoo tutorial.  Its pretty simple but it could help eradicate one of the most pervasive and easy to fix problems out there "desert background."  This tutorial explains simple cheap ways to set a blank background or photo in your LDD renderings.

 

New Project

Legend of Korra: Mecha Tank, Korra, Amon, Hiroshi, & Supporter's Choice
by Glenbricker


Here is my latest submission to Cuusoo.  It is the Mecha Tank from Legend of Korra as well as Korra (of course) and Amon. I will soon be finishing Hiroshi to be the pilot of the Mecha Tank.  Then I will be adding one last protagonist to this proposed set. 

I am going to let supporters decide from the following list who will be the fourth fig:

  • Mako 
  • Bolin
  • Tenzin
  • Lin Beifong
  • Asami Sato
  • Generic Metalbender Officer

Honorable Mention

Ironman Arc Reactor
by Mr.attacki


This is a very attractive display piece with a lot of great technique.  The snotted slopes are one thing but check out the tile work!  There are perpendicular tiles!  Then you have the Arc Reactor which looks right out of the movie.  Finally, to top it off, it glows! 

This is a great piece that would fit well in the home of anyone who loves Iron Man or Lego...although it does kinda look like a desk fan...

Week of Cuusoo

I decided to put the cutoff at 3 support this week.

Ironman Arc Reactor
Support Level: 56

See above
Iron Lion
Support Level: 38

Although a classic "battletech" style mech this design is novel to Cuusoo's long list of Mechs.  Foxi-5 does a great job implementing the shape of the beast and giving it the articulation it needs, but the model is lacking in nuance unfortunately...to much basic plating and not enough greeble to really make it come alive.
