Daily Cuusoo

News

Following the Brick Queen fallout, Senteosan's Jurassic Park
has become the second active project on Cuusoo to get its comments locked.
Too many people were talking about the Brick Queen situation.  The existing comments are a mess as well given that half half of every conversation has been deleted.  Its like listening to someone talk on a phone without being able to hear the other person.

Pick of the Day

Invader Zim House and Voot

When I first saw the "thumbnail image" of this project, I was unimpressed.  It looked a bit sketchy but I make it a point to try to look at every project at least once, and I am very glad I did. 

Yes yes it has figs requiring new molds but look past that.  This build, which looked like a sketch at small scale is a fully actuallized design, with very clever techniques to that crazy shape! 

The whole structure has loads of charms and viable details and the vehicle (based a little on TMNT it appears) is fantastic.  This project is seriously worth more attention than it is getting.



Seriously, check this out!

Notables

Despicable Me Minions
Everyone seems to be nailing different aspects of these guys.  If you are going for a movie themed project though, you need to get it out before the movie for best effect
Knight Rider
Nice build, well scaled.  
Iron Man Hulkbuster Mech Suit
by tankm
Great Mech, with all such Hulkbusters its faults in being twice as big as the Hulf figure.

There is a delightful pic of Tony drinking coffee in this thing.  DE-lightful
Big Wheel v3.0
A pic is worth of thousand words but a video worth a million.  Post videos for dynamic projects.
Robot Wars
Fun idea for a MOC, not enough punch for production.
