Friday Night Fights (Round 35)

Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another awesome round of Friday Night Fights! I was going to pick some Movie related builds to square off tonight, but much like Benny, I got distracted by spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIPS!!!

In the red corner, we have Bob DeQuatre with his Zenith SPACESHIP:
Zenith - Old Republic escort cruiser

In the blue corner, we have iomedes and his Nodens SPACESHIP:
NODENS class fast attack frigate

As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding the outcome of this bout by way of comment. On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, the horse race was a bit of a no show with Schfio winning by a score of 3-1. Tune in next week for another action packed edition of Friday Night Fights!

LEGO Starcraft Protoss Zealot

The original Starcraft game came out almost 15 years ago and has spawned a decade and a half of Starcraft inspired LEGO builds, from the humble probe, to the hydralisk troops to even the imposing Battle Cruisers.

And today we add another great Starcraft build to the ranks – ccy_8086 has built this fantastic Protoss Zealot with a great mix of  bionicle and system:
Protoss Zealot 007

 

While there’s tons of great piece usages, the face in particular I thought was fantastic. But this isn’t the first time CCY has embraced his inner gamer, his last build was an equally impressive Space Marine, which he still has built:

Astro Kitty & Angry Kitty

Simon is playing shy and not wanting to blog his own stellar creations it appears. So I will be more than happy to post this in his stead. Here’s Simon’s interpretation of Unikitty dressed in Classic Space garb from the upcoming LEGO Movie.

Astro Kitty

Edit:
I appear to have missed the fact that Simon based his Astro Kitty on Evan’s Angry Kitty. Which, no offence to Simon, is even more awesome.

Angry Uni-kitty.

I have yet to see the movie, but am anxiously awaiting the release date in my home town (despite my local theatre being old and smelly). In the meantime I will just continue to enjoy all the fan built creations inspired by what appears to be a hit in the making.

The Spirit of Fire, four years in the making

After herculean effort, Mark Kelso (Amhakia) finally unveils the massive Halo universe SHIP he began four years ago. No less impressive than the effort itself, the final product more than manages to live up to expectations.

Seven feet long and with every inch superbly detailed, this build is truly a labor of love. Head on over to the MOCpages gallery to read Mark’s thoughts on completing this marathon of a build, or head over to his flickr if you’re inclined to scroll back to the first work in progress shots from 2010.

Kickin’ It Old School with Paul B. Hartzog [Classic]

All right, time for another oldie but goodie. This time, it’s a ship that I’ve been trying to find for years. This was always one of my favourites from my time back on Classic Space Forums. However, over the years I had forgotten who had made it and therefore could not find it anywhere. All I really remembered was the vertically mounted x-pod lids on the sides of the ship, and the little communications array on the top using the minifig jackhammer. But wouldn’t you know it, I was browsing through Paul B. Hartzog’s back catalogue this morning and there it was in all its classic gloriousness.

So enough of my blabbing…I present the Salvage Seeker:

You simply must be sure to click through the entire photoset that I linked to above…this thing is a classic in all senses of the word and despite being 7 years old can easily hold it’s own against anything being produced today. Now that I have finally found it, I am certainly going to study the photoset and be making notes. I mean, just look at that striping! And the greebs!

They just don’t make ‘em like this anymore!

Whiskers...on a starfighter.

Whiskers in a sci-fi context always make me think of Seaquest DSV. Now granted this funky little starfighter by Jacob Unterreiner (4estFeller) doesn’t really look like a submarine, but then again maybe it does kind of look like some sort of alien catfish. Anyways, I digress…this ship is cool, and the integration of the antenna elements is pretty expertly done. It has plenty of fresh style that is just fun to look at.

…remember Darwin the dolphin? He was awesome!
