  1. LEGO VF-1 A and S Battroid mode

    No I didn't, my wife was using my phone to take pictures. I was just too focus on the two valks. One of them was partially disassembled , so before I met him I had to put it back together to have it actually signed. If he ever comes back to Manila I'll have one of the ARMD carriers signed and I'll print out a nice poster sized picture of the SDF-1 for him to sign as well. But knowing that Kazutaka Miyatake designed the SDF-1, I wonder if it would be okay though. Thanks, it was the number one topic during my last LEGO Group meeting. I'm happy that I was able to go and that my wife supported me in this. She waited with me for 9 hours.

    Haha, I'm seriously wondering that too. I wish I would have at least brought one of the ARMD carriers. But I had my hands full with the two battroids. One of them was in my backpack the other one I had in a paperbag. I had to be ultra careful because people kept on bumping into my stuff. He looked very happy and pointed out areas like the chest and other pieces, he called his assistant over and had her take pictures. He genuinely seemed to appreciate the builds. If it wasn't for the language barrier I'm sure we could have had a short but interesting conversation about the MOCs. Thanks! I would have waited even longer if it would have been necessary. There was a time where I thought I wouldn't make it because the line was progressing at a crawl. Pretty much everyone who fell in line had items signed and commissioned a drawing/ sketch, which took anywhere from 5-10 minutes. Thankfully I was among the first 40-50 people that day. We were there before the event started, and the lines were loooooong. I wonder if people who arrived in the afternoon were still able to get an autograph, I heard he signed till 8pm, I was done by 7pm. We arrived at the event at 8:30am.

    Just wanted to share this with you guys. I had the honor to meet Shoji Kawamori himself during the Asia Pop Comic Con. I waited 9 hours in line that day to meet him and have my LEGO creations signed. It was an amazing experience. I felt like a little kid, I was nervous as hell. A moment I won't forget

    @Mazinger Thank you! @arbit Try changing the theme into extended, that makes all pieces available in all colors. Otherwise, as already mentioned by M'Kyunn, the inventory is incomplete. It might take some time until it will be updated again.
  5. LEGO VF-1 A and S Battroid mode

    Thank you guys! As said by @barurutor, this set wouldn't make it far. Licensing would definitely be a problem. On top of that, this is not really a play set. It's comparable to LEGO Ultimate Collector Series sets, it's made of over 1000 bricks and is rather fragile. You build it, pose it, and then place it in your display case/cabinet next to your other Valks. I just wanted to create something that I could display next to my SDF-1 during conventions. @ScrambledValkyrie Most parts were sourced off Bricklink, some came from my own stash. But Bricklink is your #1 source for LEGO bricks. When I build the actual set, I back track my own steps based on the LDD model. I use blueprint to create instructions, LDD's generated Instructions are useless in most cases, You've got to group and subgroup parts of your model, and even then LDD creates steps that can't be followed. You can export a parts list/ inventory any time, it just can't be imported into Bricklink. You have to manually search for each part.

    Time to update this thread with the actual builds. I've made decals to add detail to the mocs. I haven't taken pictures of the A yet, so I'll just post the S for now. Some quick info on the set, it's 39cm / 15.8 inches tall, approx 1150 bricks.

    Thanks for the kind words guys, I'm glad you like it.

    Sorry you guys had to wait this long, but I finally took some pictures. I finished the last ARMD carrier last night for today's event, so you guys finally get to see some pictures of the finished SDF-1. I'll update the first post as well. Hope you'll like them!

    This is amazing! Keep up the great work.
  10. Lego SDF-1 DYRL WIP

    Let me clean up the file before I post it. I made some questionable choices, like using a 1x2 and 2x2 in places where I could have used a 2x3 plate. I fixed those issues when I made the actual build. It seems like I was a bit in a rush when I built the ARMD carriers.

    Thanks MT !

    Thanks! Funny because a friend and I were talking about LDD vs actual brick prototyping. He told me he admired people who use LDD because he just can't get the hang of it. Personally I envy him because he has enough bricks to just go ahead and prototype. I have to say that some things are easier accomplished with real bricks. LDD can a bit tedious at times, but I have no other choice.

    Thanks mate. Some time ago, I started work on a VF-25 but it's on ice right now. I might make some changes and turn it into a gerwalk VF-1 or fighter mode with strike pack. It's of a bigger scale than the battroid though. Thanks !

    Hi guys ! So after finishing the SDF-1 I thought that something was missing. Of course the SDf-1 can't be without it's squadron of valks. I loaded up Lego Digital Designer and started on working on Hikaru's VF-1A from DYRL. I didn't want to spend all that much time, so I decided that I'd only build it in battroid mode, no transformation. Finished product sports approx 1030 bricks, a lot less than the 11.000 brick heavy SDF-1. Now it's time to start the actual build.
