    Mega Construx things I built

    Hiya!

    Here are some of the things I made.

    Mostly created from Castle Grayskull bricks, first up is a Romulan Warbird.








    The command compartment can be accessed by lifting off the hatch. Evil Spock has taken this ship to Eternia to challenge the heroic warriors.






    Teela and Man-At-Arms have their own mission to keep Skeletor's forces at bay, so He-Man must blast off aboard Starship Eternia to engage the Romulan threat in orbit over the planet. This ship is made with a lot of bricks from 2016's Mega Bloks Enterprise and 2003's Mega Bloks Blue Thunder jet. The engines have light-up bricks. The pilot module snugly connects with the main ship. Laser guns swivel.




















    He-Man is victorious in the battle and drives Evil Spock away from Eternian airspace.

    Wow! That Crystal Castle is amazing! If only there was a She-Ra MC figure!

    This is just great, I have tried to build a pink crystal castle before based on the toy but it didn't come out well so it was put to one side, I think I will try this one out based on your design.

    He-Man's selfie in front of Plundor the Spoiler's factory is spoiled by his frenemy giving him rabbit ears. I hate when that happens, don't you?

    The following is a vehicle for Skeletor that I devised for him to cross Eternia's seas. Patterned after a manta ray or sting ray, I have decided it's called a Stealth Ray. Skeletor speeds along the ocean surface, so I put together a water-themed display base for this vehicle to connect to.

    Is this the head of Snake Mountain or the monster from the Fright Zone? It looks like it could double as both.

    Also Mattel/Mega Construx should hire you. So many of us have said that before and it is still true now.
    I need help selling some items. look for my listing in the Miscellaneous Marketplace Forum. Important details in thread

    I collect MOTU/POP, Transformers, Garfield the Cat, & 80's/90's Book & Tape/Record Sets. I collect VHS & DVD of 80's-00's properties and comics. My YouTube Channel titled: Feb Mon

    These are fantastic!

    What kits provided the basis for the Crystal castle?

    I love that Manta type vehicle too.

    I suppose you're right! My method is that I draw at least one picture of whatever I want to build, tape that drawing to the wall, and start building based on that -- and in this case what I had drawn was Filmation's head of Snake Mountain. There was no way I was going to build the full mountain, so I just represented a little bit of it. Maybe I can do a vintage-toy Fright Zone type of build at some point, but right now there are other goals higher up on my list.

    I appreciate the compliment! If only they could hire fans based on just those fans having built something, that would be nice.

    These are fantastic!

    Thanks for the comment! The yellow pieces primarily are from two Giant Pikachu sets. I don't care about Pokemon, but I thought I might be able to do something with a couple of those sets. They were clearanced out at local Kroger Marketplace stores. I used gray bricks from Mega's U.S.S. Enterprise. Light Hope was built from a Mars Rocket set from Laser Pegs -- I think T.J. Maxx was the store where I bought that set.

    This Sand Demon scales better with vintage MOTU than with Mega Construx figures, as he's about 7 inches in height. I used a bunch more of the Jumbo Pikachu pieces to build him.

    Nice! I can see this being a version of Castle Grayskull on some alternate Eternia in the multiverse.

    the menace of trap jaw p14.jpgthe magic stealer p5-6.jpg

    In some of the Series 2 minicomics from 1982, artist Mark Texeira drew Castle Grayskull with some features and proportions that I tried to build here. I also wanted as much as possible for this project to NOT share building methods with the official Mega Construx instructions for Castle G.
    This is a work in progress. The top of the shorter tower needs its laser cannon, and I intend to add at least one wall on the side which will give this structure some depth.
    Measuring 13.5 inches tall, it's slightly taller than the Grayskull Tower and the Lighthouse structures. Probably once I have this castle fully finished, I'll photograph these three all together. Not sure whether it's feasible to make them connect in a modular fashion, although if I can, that could be cool too.

    Lots more photos on my blog: https://oldboltyneck.com/

    Revisions to this Castle Grayskull since I last posted: (1) laser cannon, (2) tweaked jawbridge, (3) skull teeth completely redone, (4) eye socket fireball effects, (5) and the side wall to give the castle some depth.

    I built a walking vehicle that has three rotate-able eyes. It's a Tri-Pod that Skelly's driving for the time being, until that fun-lovin' three-eyed warrior gets released.

    Thanks, Dice & Starkvader!

    Mega Construx has sent me some free pieces for building MOTU customs, and the first project out of the gate that I used them with is named ...

    MEGASUS

    Teela's new air vehicle has articulated limbs and wings. It's able to lasso enemies such as Skeletor.
