In his latest Vic Viper, Peter Morris dispenses with minimalism in colouring and replaces it with all the gaudiness of a racecar. His ARX-02a Victoria’s Viper is loosely based on the 2009 Acura ARX-02a and the racing influence is a definite plus. It’s always a challenge to pull together this many colours but he’s managed Continue reading →

Andrew Lee is calling it the Raptor. I call them T-Rex parts. I expect that everyone will call it awesome.
I’m sure I’m going to have to do a round-up post at the end of the month with all my favorite Vic Vipers. In the meantime, I couldn’t resist posting one that I just saw. Stefan (Brainbikerider) has a pretty different take on the Vic Viper shape. His ship is a lot less pointy than Continue reading →
Vic Viper VOAT Vinivious by Uspez Morbo Space 2 by Rogue Bantha Eldorado Fortress Redux by Kris Kelvin Once again I find myself with more neat stuff to blog and no time to do it all justice. At least I added names this time. Does anyone else find the new version of flickr really frustrating Continue reading →
The good folks in the LEGO Starfighters group on Flickr have started a new Novvember. That means that many people are building Vic Vipers, inspired by the game Gradius, all month long. I’m digging the one below by legodrome, and I’m sure there will be many more nice fighters to come. I feel that the Continue reading →
This Vic Viper by Mark Stafford (Nabii) has a very unique look to it. Incorporating boilerplate techniques with a variety of Mecha-style weapons and details, he has created a blend that is very refreshing!
A result of Novvember, here are almost all of the Vic Vipers built by Nnenn and the participants. You can see them all on Flickr’s Vic Vipers pool!
During November, Nnenn ambitiously set out to present a new variation of the Vic Viper each day of the month. While the LEGO fan community on Flickr has known Nnenn to be one of the most prolific builders, no one has ever seen a builder post one new medium-sized LEGO creation for each day of Continue reading →
Chrispockster uses parts from various short-lived themes to get a wide variety of interesting colours in his version of a Vic Viper (yes it’s still NoVVember). I reckon that the range of shapes, textures and colours makes this the most unusual take (so far at least) on the two-pronged Viper shape.
This incredible Steampunkish Vic Viper is pure win! Mark Stafford has outdone himself. There is so much awesome goodness here, I don’t know what to say. I’ll just shut up and let it speak for itself.
Our second and third LEGO Vic Vipers of the day come from NoVVember co-creator Peter Morris. Here’s his SC-5 Ramius, with gorgeous dark blue and orange highlights almost reminiscent of the color scheme from Ice Planet 2002: And a very different ZR-15A Widowmaker: I wonder if the creators of Gradius back in 1985 ever imagined Continue reading →
For his contribution to NoVVember, Shannon Ocean takes his inspiration from the natural world. Specifically, Shannon’s Goliath heavy transport was inspired by the enormous Goliath beetles of Africa:
McZargald of CATpit construction has posted a couple of really great Vic Viper fighters for NoVVember. The stripey one above is called Moorish Idol after a fish. It doesn’t have the traditional pronged front of a Vic Viper, but I think it’s way cool. Crusade is equally stripey, with nicely sloped jet intakes:
Tyler Clites (Legohaulic) joins the Vic Viper “NoVVember” fun with his Rusty Saber: The cockpit has an arthropod-like look to it, and it’s definitely my favorite part.
Two-pronged starfighters are my favorite sort. NoVVember is already off to a good start with lots of great entries in the Vic Viper pool. Let’s get this roundup started with Ronin VV by Fredo Houben (Fredoichi): I can’t stop staring at the nose on Kuzma’s Mother, a chunky entry by Horace Cheng (Squinty Eyes): Lukas Continue reading →
