This funny robot character is an alternate of Designer set 4888. This set has some great parts, but it’s tricky to come up with any good alternates. Luckily it contains a lot of hinges, so I was able to build some articulated droid, called Mr.Y, which fully spelled forms MisterY.

This is my alternate #3 of Designer Set 4403 Air Blazers. Inspired by the F-14 Tomcat with folding wings.
Another alternate of Creator set 5867: #14 Muscle car. Muscle cars are particularly well known from the US, and basically consist of a stock car with a high performance, often V8 engine. They look quite ordinary and square, but have some specific features that give muscle cars their unique character. As an exemple one can […]
This 2nd alternate of 6745 is an attempt to build some kind of commercial airliner. The main challenge was to get the shape of the wings right.
Alternate #19 of set 5867 Super Speedster: Wheel Loader. This type of heavy duty work vehicle is often seen on mining sides.

Alternate 12 of set 5867: Motorbike. Taking a break from cars, the next alternate in this series became a motorbike. It was a bit of a stretch, because not all parts, especially the wheels are not very suitable for a chopper. It was more to see what else could be done besides cars, and if […]
Alternate 15 from set 5867: Go Kart. Pretty much all racingdrivers start in go karts. There’s a good chance that you’ve tried one of those yourself. Due to their wide chassis and very low point of gravity, they are very stable on the circuit. Though they have small, often 1 cylinder engines, they still have […]
Banjo and Kazooie, the famous N64 video game characters made exclusively from set 4884. As one of the best platform games on the N64, those crazy characters deserve more attention. Banjo the not so smart bear, and Kazooie the sarcastic bird go on an adventure to rescue Banjo’s little sister. Having to deal with the […]
A historic racer; alternate # 7 of Creator set 5867. Long before people were familiar with downforce and concerned about safety, drivers already risked their lives to race against each other. Racing cars back then looked more like bullets on wheels…
