Planning a MOC

Post  Guest on Tue Dec 11, 2012 4:04 pm

I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread centered around custom builds where we can share advice, crituqes and sugestions for MOC fodder.

I'll kick things off. Want to build a custom van for my turtles. Originaly it was just going to be an upscaled version of the vehicle from the battle shell bridge set but then i noticed how off model that build was. It was going to be as close as i could get to the 2003 van but I have since thought of features I would like to have that arent present on the show model. It needs to be fairly large to fit the new bodies, which are much bigger than the MB turtles, a small computer station in the back, a small vehicle and missle launchers hidden in the front of the vehicle.
Heres what I have so far as a plan.


I think it will need to be a bit bigger though. I was playing with my halo warthog and figured those camo deco blocks would be perfect. Now I was looking around for a set with plenty of of these bricks and then some. I have narrowed it down to 2: The halo Pelican drop ship or the Elephant. Both of these sets look to have more than enough bricks for what i need and other use full pieces.

Any idea which one would be more benifical to me or is there a better way I could source the camo deco bricks?

Well, I happened to have the Elephant, and it uses alot, and I mean ALOT of 2x4 bricks in that Camo, as well as a great deal of 1x8, 1x6s and others in that metric. The Peli uses some too, but uses more plates than the Elephant. With what you're looking to build, I reckon the elephant would be the best bet. I'll also gladly take the figures off your hand for either of those sets Razz

Thanks fishy. Just watched reviews of these 2 and GEESUS!!! They are HUGE! Both pretty bad ass. The elephant would make a sweet TMNT ride on its own. Any way I can get a parts list for the pelican? Im leaning towards that. Less pieces but its got other elmenents I think could work well for my build.

Yeah both of them very big sets, but you get a lot for your money.

Look up the instructions through Mega's customer service. They should have the Peli and the Elephant on there.

No I want it to be inscale with the Megablocks figs. Specifically the WOW bodies.

Had a look for on Mgeas site, found the elephant and its parts list. Theres allot to work with for sure but couldn't find the pelican anywhere. scratch
