Mission # 1 - The Night Hunt

Hi! Just a quick note before the main entry. Here's a look at the figs used for this post. I still haven't thought of names for them but I'll try to figure something out soon. 

Agents of the Black Cross

The Lady In The Tomb

As you may have guessed, this is going to be a series here in the blog. Hope I can come up with more material soon. Thanks for reading!

"The men and I were dispatched on a mission to hunt down a foul being terrorizing a small town outside the city. The Director wanted us to eliminate this creature that's said to be the cause of disappearing children. We talked to some of the townspeople and they reported seeing apparitions of a strange looking woman wearing an old-fashioned red dress during the wee hours of the night. Ever since these sightings began, several folks have disappeared, yet to be seen again. No one bothered to go after her fearing they would also go missing. Luckily, one of the younger and braver folks followed her and saw her head to this graveyard. Now, we find ourselves standing in front of a lone mausoleum in the middle of this vast land of the dead hoping to find what we were looking for."

The Mausoleum

This project has been keeping me busy for the past week and I'm glad it's finally done. The concept behind it was mostly inspired by two movies: Men In Black and Constantine. I've always wanted to create a theme that features agents wearing suits fighting demons and other malevolent entities. I guess this is the reason why Lego's Ultra Agents line somehow tickled my fancy, but not enough to ignore the price tag of the sets.

Happy Star Wars Day!

Much like Lego, Star Wars has greatly influenced my love for science fiction and space. It's really cool that we earthlings pay tribute to this epic franchise every year. Honestly, it's difficult to imagine pop culture without Star Wars. I'm just glad George Lucas turned his vision into reality through film decades ago. I also love the fact that three generations of my family love Star Wars. How awesome is that?! 

That's it for now, folks. I wish you all a Happy Star Wars Day! May the Fourth be with you!

Sith Lords with style.

The Monolith

One of my favorite movies is Stanley Kubrick's 2001:A Space Odyssey.  I was awestruck the first time I got to see it on VHS particularly because it made me wonder if the effects in the movie were real. Aside from that, 2001 had a very profound plot, which made me question the purpose and existence of everything and us human beings, especially. I decided to create a MOC to honor one of Kubrick's masterpieces. Actually, this build has been bugging me for weeks and fortunately, I finally had the time to work on it.
