G1 Micro Starscream (And Other Seeker Jets) + Supposed Return Of Bionicle
Okay, I'm going away tomorrow, so don't expect any extra comment replies in the morning. I might do it once before I go, but that's it. Where am I going, you may ask? NEW ZEALAND! Yep, I'm going on a skiing holiday, and I'll be back next Thursday. I'm then sleeping over at a family member's house the night I get in, so I'll probably be back on the pages on Friday afternoon. Until then, you should enjoy this MOC. It has given me great joy in finally putting this together, as Screamer has been high on my to-do-list. Well, I'm also going to tackle the 'is Bionicle coming back' roomer, as it seems to be picking up momentum. I'll explain why I'm doing it here later...

To start off, here we have G1 Starscream in his tiny jet mode.


To be honest, he's not that different from the failed version that I posted a while back.


Here's a view from the top. No, he's NOT standing up, because he's OBVIOUSLY still in vehicle mode...


I'm finally happy with this figure, mainly because he scales so well.


And here we have the robot mode!


The wings, as you can see, transform quite differently in comparison to the original toy, but it doesn't matter.


Not only does he scale well in jet mode, but also in robot mode! Crosshairs is also okay in robot mode scale, but don't put them side-by-side in vehicle mode...


Well, enjoy the LDD file. I made Screamer and Dirge, because I like Dirge's colour scheme. To make all the others, just change the colour scheme around a bit and maybe add a part here or these. Speaking of which, I CHALLENGE ANDROS TEMPEST TO DO THAT TO THIS MOC THAT HE HAS DONE TO MOODSWIM'S.

Okay, so here's the image of the supposed 'leaked Bionicle sets'. The reason I put it here is because A, I only found out today, and B, it needs to be with a fully fledged MOC, otherwise it could get deleted. So, here's the deal. Apparently Bionicle could be coming back in 2015. I would call this photo evidence, but photos like these have been floating around the internet ever since Hero Factory's inception. Seriously, every damn year there's all these new videos saying that Hero Factory is going to end and that Bionicle is returning. Well, here's the facts. First off, HERO FACTORY IS NOT ENDING. If Bionicle were to return, and I'm not saying it is, then it would coexist alongside HF. However, there is good news that might support this theory. Lego apparently stated that a new figure-based theme would come out in 2015. Does this mean Bionicle? Maybe. So, where do I stand. I personally am indifferent to this. I'm keeping my distance while this thing plays out. Once official photos that can be traced back to a valid source, leaked or officially revealed, then I'll catch the hype train. In fact, I was actually one of the ones who liked to laugh at those who would make confirmation videos, and then fall into sorrow after they backfired. Yeah, it's slightly sadistic, but I'm one of thousands who do the same. Besides, what harm ever came with watching? But why am I doing this. It's all thanks to one MOCer: CallanLOF. I got an email stating that he released a MOC showing a picture of hinted Bionicle sets. When I went to check it out, it was gone. Then, I went over to his channel, which led me to his podcast. I then had to find the image myself by clicking a link in a comment, as they had taken the link to the photo down. Well, here's what I think. They say that the person who released this is 'coming under legal fire'. 'They' is someone who I can't remember. It could be Callan, or it could be someone else. Well, That has got me thinking; is this real? Well, I'm going to answer with my thoughts:

I am not sure, but something inside me tells me that it could be true. Still, I will tread carefully. Being overhyped is anything's worst enemy...

...still, I never did get a reply back from Callan. I thought I was going to make music for his videos, and then it all stopped. Seriously, I even made the first track. If Callan is reading this, then comment and let me know. The deal is still on...

Quoting andros tempest I never followed the fiction of bionicle, but I did like some of the designs that came out later in the brand. But I suspect it would now be closer to hf in design than the old bionicle. I'd have no objections to the theme returning.
Maybe it'll bring back some old parts and mix it with a few new parts. Now THAT is something I'd like to see...
Quoting Evan Botkin I totally understand. While part of me wants BIONICLE to remain like it is, another part of me wants it to return, mainly because it's the best theme TLG ever created. Anyway yeah, don't want to get our hopes up. :)
Not really. If it gets confirmed by TLC, however, I'm the first guy on the hype train.

Quoting andros tempest Looking at the LDD model I'm seeing some problems. Firstly the technique of using a technic pin inside a 1x1 brick doesn't hold in LDD - I'm fairly sure it's considered an illegal connection. But it may be possible to work around that by simply reversing which side the hole sticks out. Secondly I'm finding some clearance issues with the hinges that might require a slightly larger build to achieve a smoother transformation. At the moment partsforming is inevitable. Give me a day or two and I'll have a version that I'd be willing to put my name to.
Quoting andros tempest http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/391780 Just screamer so far, but let me know what you think - and yes no partsforming required
That technique is not in fact illegal, as TLC uses it in their sets more often than I can count. It's just that LDD doesn't recognise that connection. It's a shame they don't update it. But anyway, thanks for the redesign. And Kreon-Style? HAHAHA! Oh, that's a funny name. The Kreons were really the only good things about the sets anyway, so much that Hasbro now makes them the focus of the model. :)
Quoting Evan Botkin Nice work on Starscream! The vehicle mode scales well but the robot mode seems too short to me. About the supposed "Return of BIONICLE", I don't know what to believe. As awesome as BIONICLE was, I don't really think I want it brought back. It was the most story driven of any of TLG's themes and for 1--I don't see how they can continue the story and do it well. 2--The sets just won't be the same, with all the HF parts now, it just wouldn't be the same. Anyway, it's fun to speculate and argue but whatever. Have fun on your skiing trip.
The robot mode is supposed to be short, to answer your question, to scale with Prime. Also, I respect your opinion. However, there are way too many people who want Bionicle back, even if they don't talk about it. I am one of those, however I will tread carefully. I don't want to get hyped about something that may not exist...

Quoting andros tempest Since you asked nicely ;p I may have a go at modifying the design a little. We will see, my mocing time is about to drastically drop again I think.
Gee, that was quick. Thanks for answering so quickly. How about slipstream?
