A few random figs for 2,021 February FigBarf [FF21]

Post by BrickSyd » Sun Feb 28, 2021 12:18 pm

Since 2020 will be remembered as the year I had time for Lego again, here are a few entries for FF21 :guinness:

Image
All four are for the Purist Pugilists category.


High Templar
Image
Some High Templar from an ancient interdimensional Precursor race. Strong in arcane magic and devoted to cosmic powers, they can manipulate energies not even known to most of the Brikverse. They rarely make contact with other galactic civilizations as this would be incompatible with their "higher" sources of motivation. Seeing them around you is usually not a good sign and very few civilizations survived such encounters.


Enchanted Guard Tower

Two of many enchanted guard tower created with unicorn dust by a group of swamp pixies.
(credit to my GF for those!)


Guardian Angels
Image
Guardian Angels are tall, mythical creatures. Often mistaken for fairies, the truth is that they are something else entirely. There are many legends from different cultures referencing these beings.
According to most prophecies, they are the ones who give their lives to save those who are needed or worthy.


Image
The upside down scarf not only increases the height of the minifig but it also hides the white neckpart that's needed to clip the wings to the back of the minifig.
The wings are assembled in a way that you can deploy them at any angle. It's a pretty simple technique that allow for great posability and playability.


Precursor Golem
Image
These Golems are strong, smart and disposable melee units. They can fill a variety of roles, from cannon fodder to infiltration for the Precursors. Their quantum staff can create portals and their unbreakable shields can bend the surrounding light to make them invisible. Their dimensional suits makes it possible to contain the dark energy they are mostly filled with. They tend to become very unstable when broken.


Image
The helmet installed backward integrates very well to the back print of the minifig.
The head of the minifig is black so even if you look into its large eyes, only darkness can be seen.

As a kid, I always put those old astronaut helmets on backwards and pretended it was a face. I'm glad to see someone else find a good use for that!

I like that you built multiples of all of these, makes for nice presentation. I think they could be pushed further from the base minifigs to get more style in there.

My scores are formatted as follows: (style, story, photography, thematic potential)

High Templar (6, 7, 9, 8)
Enchanted Guard (7, 6, 8, 7)
Guardian Angels (8, 7, 8, 7)
Precursor Golem (10, 7, 8, 9)
I make apocalypses and apocalypse accessories.

That's some very constructive criticism that I totally have to agree with. Thank you!

Apologies for the late judging, in order to expedite the progress I’ll forego my usual commentary and jump straight for the rankings unless I want to make a specific note on something.

Also holy shit hey bricksyd it’s been a while since I’ve seen you around here, glad to have the man himself back!
