A display scene I built for some of my favorite minifigs, along with their vehicles.
About this creation
From left to right:
"Snek bax utt To, snex Kibnu. What is yours, is mine."
Mrez is a professional burglar and assassin from Gliese 667C-b, in the Scorpio constellation. Like many of his race, he migrated to the human Home system to take advantage of loopholes in Earth's law code, which forbid the prosecution of extraterrestrials for any felony, and has thus made a small but prestigious reputation in the criminal underground. (Consider this a teaser for an upcoming dio I'm planning.)
This photo shows the minigun mounted on the speeder bike's fender, as well as showing Mrez fully armed.
"Buy Franklin timing belts!"
"Howdy there, and welcome to Pete's Workshop, where I'll get your speeder runnin' faster than ever! Be it booster rockets, thrust vectoring adjustments, or larger control flaps, me 'n' MR-4 here can do it all!"
Customer: "Make your speeder run faster? Ha! I've been here for almost five hours and he hasn't done a lick o' work on my hovercar!"
Pete: "Would you be quiet! I'm makin' me a commercial for MawkPages! Low prices and a convenient location on Loading Dock 4 in Port Jefferson, Mars! Come in today!"
"Let's go hikin'!"
~My updated sigfig.
After nearly being mauled by a chipmunk on his last hike, Sigfig decided to start carrying a laser pistol. More powerful than the average handgun, it was purchased from a Galactic Marine who had grown disillusioned of constant war and wanted to desert.
(In other words, I got the Galactic Marine collectible minifig and thought his gun looked neat. Whatever floats your boat.)
"I am the very model of a modern Major-General,
I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral,
I know the kings of England, and I quote the fights historical
From Marathon to Waterloo, in order categorical;
I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters mathematical,
I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical,
About binomial theorem I'm teeming with a lot o' news,
With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse!"
The Major-General wanted to be photographed crossing the bridge triumphantly, so I obliged.
"I wonder what will happen if I take this apart..."
~Deck Sgt. Matthew Haywood, 3rd. Orbital Marine Corps.
The Orbital Marines are stationed aboard capital ships, ready to land on hostile planets, repel boarders, or conduct inter-ship operations. Although handy with his fingers, Deck Sgt. Haywood winds up disabling the main engines more often than defusing a bomb, and discharges his blaster rifle into the ceiling at least once a month.
(Inspired by a friend who stayed overnight one time at my house and left holes in the walls, a wooden nutcracker in 10 pieces, and a neighbor's tetherball set stuck in a tree.)
The jetpack is inspired by one in a Master Builder's Academy set, but I don't remember exactly which one.
An overall view of the bridge.
Under the bridge is my brother's sigfig as a lost miner, as well as a troll waiting to capture unwary boaters.
The right side of the bridge...
...and the left side.
A figless view, showing all of the fine...MIKEY! What did I say? I said FIGLESS!
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed looking through these. In my humble opinion this is both my best photography and some of my smoothest building ever, so please let me know what you think of them. Thank you!
