|MK. 1 - Afterlord. The original, the one that started it all.|
You may have noticed these three projects are similar in size, all three are remote control, and based on intellectual properties. Introducing the "MK series", a personal way for me to express my Lego® skills by reaching and using the limits of Lego® - trying to show the world what Lego® is able to do. These projects are remote controlled objects based on any visual source material - it can be a movie, a game, or even from comicbooks. Pre-existing objects based in Lego® form in a specific fixed scale. They just don't only follow the most generic movement of the "real" thing, they also include other significant functions as well. In my view they have to do more than just moving around. Eyes that lit up? I'll add them. Moving compartments? No big deal. Shooting rockets? I'll add them if they fit in the scale and not obstruct the looks too much. Just to give an idea.
I have a large amount of rules every MK has to follow that came after I finished the Afterlord. Mainly focussed on sturdy builds, remote controlled, projects made on a Lego® purist's perspective, and that children can play safely with them~ my projects will form its own family of brothers and sisters - all designed on a similar fashion, "Rayque" styled.
Even though I love to freestyle and build everything I want in Lego®, due to time and resources it's not always possible for me to do so. I have to prioritize. I felt these projects really suit my personality and they force me to pull out every Lego®-related skill and knowledge I have. In my view, building from a fixed set of rules (things based on source materials) may be often more challenging due to limitations of freedom. Of course I will build other things besides for this series too!
"MK" stands for Mark and basically means a number of version.
Why the name "MK"? I got obviously inspired by the Iron Man comicbooks - however my projects aren't an iteration of each other, but they are all unique compared to each other. Basically, the word MK is just a prefix for my projects, to name the chronological order of projects. See below.
|The current line-up at the moment of this post.|
This means that there will be more after the Hailfire Droid and Constructor. However, I'll first manage to finish them before starting on the next ones. I know what I'm desiring to build in the future. It won't be just five MKs as shown above, there will be a lot more than we both will realize in a far future...
I won't just build things that are commonly made. No RC Tumblers, RC Sandcrawlers or whatever else is often built. I'll try to expand the current Lego® world of creations from millions of fans, by going for the mountains that other people didn't or failed to climb.
