And what are "greebles" and "WIPs" ... i think i know what they are, but i'm not sure if i'm right ... can someone let me know if i'm right (or wrong) ... and can somebody provide a short definition for those two words if i'm wrong ?
So, i'm just guessing here, but is this what they are ? ...
"Greebles" ... very cool and intricate details ?
"WIPs" ... unfinished and (or) abandoned mocs that were (or are about to be) scrapped ? Permalink
A vignette is a small scene, most of the time on a limited surface (by example 16x16 or 32x32) - A diorama is a full landscape (which can be everything, a town, a base...) with no limitation in size.
You're right for the Greebles.
WIP means "Work in Progress" : it's a MOC which is not finished yet.
But there are surely better definitions than mine :) Permalink
WIP: work in progress
Greeble: mechanical detail. Used properly, it makes a space model look more realistic.
BURP: big ugly rock piece
Vignette: a small scene in which everything is static, or non moving.
Diorama: landscape, can also be a vignette with dynamic characters added in.
SigFig: signature mini figure.
Cracklink: pertaining to the ever addictive Bricklink, where you can buy parts and sets. Permalink
SNOT: you're gonna need this one. It stands for Studs Not on Top. Check out my AXS type 2, on my page, to see an example. Check out some of the works of Mark Kelso to see it in great form.
LURPS: little ugly rock pieces. But this one is a given.
See Professor Eggplant's home page to see some more. Permalink
Already explained acronyms and Abbreviations aside,
WIP: Work in progress
BURP: Big Ugly Rock Piece
SNOT: Studs not on top
AFOL: Adult Fan of LEGO
Greebles: Ah, greebles... a space builder's favourite... Greebles, or Greeblies, are little spacey looking things like levers and pipes and antennae all clumped together to look spacey and cool. Yeah, that's the basic definition.
Heather may get mad should we forget FFOL, or female fans of lego. Or, for those like me, TFOL. Do I have to give you the definition of that?
KISS: Heather also uses this as an exit phrase. It can mean Keep it Studly Sir, or Keep it SNOTTY Sir, or Keep it Simply Snotted.
"Now, go forth and MoC." And that's MINE. Stay away. Permalink
