Hey! Alpha Centauri! I bought that game a month ago for 7 bucks. I gave up on it when I realized I had no idea what the hell I was doing, and I don't have a manual.

I could have sworn that HK-51 was a star wars character, not alpha centauri.

I realize, that HK-51 is from KOTOR, but look at his printer!

Wow, instead of commenting on the build, you comment on the printer? That's just sad...  :D

To not be guilty of hypocrisy, I think that this is an excellent rendition of HK-51, though it is a bit tall. Maybe making the legs thicker would be better.

Yeah I have no idea what this has to do with AC, but it's still a fantastic game.  I've probably logged more hours in it than any other strategy game, ever.  Nuclear war was never as exciting as when you could literally turn your enemies cities into a crater.  Screw that radiation crap in Civ 4, I want a lake where your capital used to be.

no. it's even worse than that. instead of commenting on the build, he comments on the PIECE OF PAPER ON TOP OF the printer.

Sorry, it just grabbed hold of my interest. Anyways, that's a pretty good model. HK-51 was my favourite character in KoTOR so it's nice to see a LEGO rendition of him. Also, if I may ask, what was the nature of this contest?

MOCs. No specific theme, just that if you make a good build, you might win a bucket of basic bricks!  :D

I want them for Brickfilms and Brikwars battles.

Are you serious? Your school (you're in high school, right?) has LEGO contests? I love Portugal.

I'm in 7th grade (or year 7 for british people).

In my school, it goes from 5th to 9th grade.

The idea for the contest was of the son of a school newspaper owner which is a member of PLUG (Portuguese Lego User Group), which, by the way, i am going to be associate too, who said to his mom:

"Why don't you make a school contest celebrating the 50 anniversary of the LEGO brick?"

And then, it started. But at the time of the deadline, only 2 MOCs were there: this one and a boat like Titanic (but not half as good as this one).  :?

Oh, and i love Portugal too.

Cristiano Ronaldo!  :D

It's worse in Civ 3, because 'indirect attacks' like missiles and nukes and catapults cannot even kill a unit, let alone a city.

Yeah it's frustrating that weapons of mass destruction can't even cause moderate destruction anymore.

If it goes on like this developers will have to figure it out the hard way. But I know what you mean. Even Starcraft nukes were better than this shit.

I changed its name, because i included more warheads and i used a new mechanism to maintain it right, not leaning forward.

Behold of Metal Gear FOX!!!
