This used to be #70592 - Ninjago Salvage M.E.C.
One thing I learnt with this was not all sets lend themselves well to alternate building.
Having only 439 parts of which very few where just plain bricks or plates, it was a lot more challenging to build something that stayed together let alone look good but I'm reasonably happy with the results all things considered.
The set formally known as #70735 - Ronin R.E.X.
Will be the last one for a while as I'm seriously going to have to take some stuff apart and put it away before building anything else as the boss is looking at me funny whilst holding sharp objects.
I'm actually quite proud of how that front end went (and stayed) together with minimal parts usage.
I do seem to have an affinity for retro type space craft that wouldn't look out of place in a Gerry Anderson TV show. I think it's an age thing (and probably why I like X-Wings so much). :)
Alt build from #70321 General Magmars siege of Doom. He calls it a VeMon: Vehicle Monster...
There's an air hockey table;
A sit-down driving game;
And an arcade machine, with a rocket shooter game playing;
This was a lot of fun, thanks for hosting the competition @TheOriginalSimonB :)
I guess I like that it actually has cargo room.
From Speed Champions Ferrari F8 Tributo #76895 to Ferrari 8 a buritto (sic) BURP!
I wanted to build something as far removed from the original model as possible.
I've got some other pics 1, 2, 3 if anyone's interested!
This was fun, thank you @TheOriginalSimonB for hosting the competition!
Your arcade is really great too, I love how surprising, varied and brilliant these alternate builds can be.
Small alt-build from the 31058 - mighty dinosaurs. This is a locust with a clover (locust vs clover scale isn't that great but hey :) )
Alt-build of the 31099. Made a submarine.
I'm happy to let votes choose the winner again, but this time PLEASE send them directly to me by DM rather than posting your choices here so we can keep an element of surprise in the results...
and his marvellous Ferrari tortoise. A cracking alternative I think we can all agree. Please let me have your details for prize dispatch.
Commiserations to all the runners up. I know @snowhitie is planning comp 3 to launch soon so keep your eyes out for that!
Thank you to everyone who voted for my model :-D I'm glad Ferrari Tortoise was so well received, especially as there was some really fabulous alternative models here.
Thank you @TheOriginalSimonB for hosting, I'll PM you now!
Thanks again for hosting @TheOriginalSimonB , it was really fun to get the creative juices flowing.
Looking forward to the next!
Congratulations @Mr_Cross , it was a very clever build!
