Veridian Inferno VV
I came home on Wednesday to quite a little discovery; this discovery led to inspiration, the inspiration led to this...
About this creation

Veridian Inferno


You may be asking yourself, 'What could have inspired THIS?'...


Understandable...


I would probably be asking the same thing...


if I were in your shoes...


Oh yeah, here is a shot of the undercarriage. I like a smooth look throughout...


Where was I? That's right, the inspiration. I came home on Wednesday to an e-mail with a link to an article about the supposed early release of Series 3 minifigs at a Fred Meyer in Washington. So I grabbed the phone book and began calling the three Fred Meyers in my area to see if this could possibly be true. First and closest store, no dice. Second store...


BINGO!!! (above figs have been changed slightly:visor on cyborg, spiked shoulder/arms/legs on Squidtron)


Thus, the inspiration! The new Squidtron needed a ship so that I would have an excuse to show him off and it IS nnoVVember, so a VV was the natural choice. Once again built using nnenn's cockpit box.

















Fourth Dimension Commentary: Yes, although not pictured, I did get my hands on a complete set of Series 3 minifigs. It took twenty minutes of package feeling and I had all 16, with a couple extras thrown in, and no mistakes! Of course I found out this morning that there IS in fact a way to tell them apart, without so much trouble, and I have confirmed it is true. So fear not, kiddies, despite a lack of barcodes, there will still be a way for you to make sure you get that elf! Or rapper! Or, one of my favorites and THE rarest(2 per case!), the fisherman! I don't have a link to the article, but I am sure the news will spread like wildfire, so a Google search should do it. Anyway, hope you like my latest VV!~H

It looks like a hybrid of the latest Mars Mission alien sets and the Vic Viper theme... this is the sort of hybrid I'd be happy to drive in.

again, very sleek, but, with a twist of uncanny originality, and organic inspiration, a spectacular compact ship filled with flair and style! love the trans -light effect too, the figs are just extra bonus, but, very appreciated, i m glad you had a good catch [figs] asi m gonna see some more goodies from you now! he he he.

Quoting andros tempest even though the "limbs" are meant to represent tentacles, I'm also getting fire from the general grouping, which fits the name excellently. Nice balanced ship with plenty of detail. love it.
Actually, that is exactly why I named it that! When arranging the tentacles and looking at it from various angles, I was reminded of flames painted on a car. Thanks for noticing!~H

So it would be uncool to tell you I got (2)? I'll keep that to myself then. LMAO But you got a fisherman, so THAT was good! Now get that VV done, there's only 8 days left.~H

Quoting Matt David Dagnabbit! I guess my comment got gobbled up by the moderators. It wasn't THAT bad....maybe. Was it? I don't remember. One of the best VV's I've seen, and great job scoping out those series-3 figs!
Yeah, I'm sure it had nothing to do with an orifice and insertions or places I could spend my winter...LMAO Thanks for the kudos!~H

Quoting Stuart Delahay Lovely techno-organic look Hans, and I always like a combo of black and lime-green. Thanks for the close-up on our cyborg/ space pirate buddy - another Blacktron Logo! Bearing in mind the Pharoah and mummy preceded a new Egyption theme, does this point the finger at where the space theme goes next? And I've already told you what I think of your recent lucky finds (it wasn't pretty folks, but it was pure jealousy).
Actually, the green tentacle headed alien from the SP sets has a Blacktron torso as well (if not for the new fig, he would have been a better pilot choice for this). Add this with what you noted and I too hope that it is a harbinger of things to come!~H

Quoting Eric Olsen Well, let's just say that, if I could build something like that, all my free time would be used up. And trusst me, I have a lot. Where do you get all of the tentacles? Any way 5/5 bravo, and encore.
I got most of those from a garage sale buy. It was EASILY the best score ever! Tons of LEGO, everything was in mint condition and dirt cheap.(Craigslist is where it's at!) I believe those were in the Mars Mission sets.~H

Quoting Josh B. Awesome, Hans! I really oughtta try some ships... Where in Oregon are you, if you don't mind me asking? Cause I wanna know which Fred Meyer you got these :)
Medford is the store I got mine at, but they're long gone. Try calling your local store(s).~H

Quoting Justin Spatha-Snake Li Wait...did you say in WASHINGTON? What city? I hope it's Redmond...
I'm not sure which Washington store had them, I live in Southern Oregon. I assume that it was stores up and down the west coast, but most or all have probably sold out.~H

Quoting Cody G Awesome work, I like the transparent bits. What Fred Meyer is it?
http://www.brothers-brick.com/ The link to the article is on there. I would have pasted THAT link, but it contains a word that would have gotten it booted or at least moderated. Anyway, I presume that most stores, if not all, have sold out by now.~H

Quoting Chuke Lapman Is it just me, or are your trans pieces a bit "milky" looking? This is sooo sleak! 'gratz on getting your mits on the minifigures... I think I gave up on them a long time ago... insufficient funds :'( Edit: wait.. black light?

Nevermind the mini-figs, that ship is amazing! Great work, Hans! The ship is very Starfox-ish. I like the upside-down slopes on the wings near the cockpit. And good job with the lighting; the trans pieces are illuminated just enough to not be over powering or cheesy. I am happy for you about the mini-figs though!
