[nitpick]Shouldn't the title read 56k users beware, not 64k?[/nitpick] :nervous:
It's been adjusted for inflation. :nervous:

Re: HLP Carl Pictures (64k users beware)
I went through all my pictures of this event earlier today and uploaded them here:

Page 2

Wow...Those models are really impressive.  What's that Final Horror made out of though?  It doesn't look like it uses any Lego pieces I've ever seen.  I wish I had the resources to build stuff like that... :jaw:

There have been some squid-like sets released with those pieces, like the Ogel subs in the Alpha Team line.

Anyone tried to make a brick version of Carl yet.  Life size would be neat.

You guys look totally different than what I thought. I figured you were all guys who just sat around, Lurking on Hard-Light, and build Shivan models, and build LEGO stuff all day... wait.

Seriously, GREAT job on all that. I wish I could have gone.

CP5670's Black Hole reminds me of the 07a "Anubis" The Order Very Heavy Fighter from Freelancer. The kids in the background looked very interested in it. :)

When I saw it I shat bricks. Impressive yet not-as-geeky as comic conventions.

Thanks. :)

That generic three-wing shape is used in many places, but you're right. It was attracting a lot of attention in the space area due to its height, which made it noticeable from a distance.

Carl Junior:
(a separate model I got on my own; sized to minifig scale and standing on the monorail I brought)




How much did Carl Junior cost you?
When Australia burned.

Where did the real Carl go?
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside

Re: HLP Carl Pictures (64k users beware)
Ooooooooooooh $50 USD is definitely a possibility for me once the exchange rate is fixed after this recession. The aussie dollar sucks at the moment, which really isnt fun when you do a lot of shopping on eBay.

And i seem to remember reading in another thread regarding Carl that there was delay in the chain...which was a possibly so he could be painted?

EDIT: Heres where I read it.

http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,56002.msg1172522.html#msg1172522
But it wasnt mentioned where that current location was. If its not to do with painting, maybe Carl got stolen??

Ooh, pretty. I just remembered that LEGO railroads aren't common in Singapore.

If I were the train driver and I saw a Shivan on the roof, I'll be scared to the point of pants-wetting. :shaking:

I thought this thread was already dead.
