Pick of the WeekPlanetary Exploration
Probably no surprise to my regular readers that this is the pick of the week as I already mentioned how much I love this project in this posting here. You could go check that out, but I think you time would be best served just going straight to the project and supporting it.
What a MOC! Very novel too. I would love a western themed MOC that respects Native American culture, especially
Unfortunately, if I know my LEGO elements, that guitar is not a LEGO element. There are electric style guitars sure but, much to my chagrin, nothing in the classic guitar style.
I realize that the guitar is a very small element of a very large and impressive project but it does endanger the overall success of the project.

One of the things I love about the LEGO Tower Bridge is the miniature cars. I love this model for the same reason. This is not only a great recreation a complex structure, but it is also paired with some great aircraft microbuilds.
The Juno model is very nice, I really like the solar panels too. The brilliance of this project lies less in the model though and more in Juno's previously existing association with LEGO. If you don't know what I am talking about, check out the project.
by whatpumpkinWhatpumpkin has left it out so as to not be so on the nose with the Research Institute.
The fact of the matter is that, at least for the next year (or more) any project with a dino-skeleton in it, or a laboratory for that matter is going to be considered a reflection of the Research Institute. If you are going to make a set that touches on Research Institute, or any existing set, don't hold back. Fully commit to the concept, and take whatever knocks you are going to take. If you are serious about the project, it will make for a better concept in the long run.
Course I could totally be wrong about Whatpumpkin's reasons for not including a T-rex but the project still makes for a good talking point on this subject.
While plenty of greeble has been added, and this is a fun recreation of the LL928, I would like to see a bit more creative interpretation.

However, I never recommend anyone serious about getting produced expand an IP into new, unlikely, territory as part of their project. Sure, make whatever project you like, but tying Disney IP to Cthulhu is just asking for trouble.
The project apparently depicts a police officer being dragged by a car. I am not sure how LEGO defines torture, but this can't be pleasant.
Bill Watterson is however, famously against merchandising his creations and I respect that.
