Formerly a member of the long-gone New World Explorer fleet, the Hawk-class fighter jet soared through space on many a scout mission. The single-engine fighter was the fastest and most versatile fighter in the fleet, but was lightly armed and armored. It does have a large fuel tank and powerful engine, plus twin blasters tipping the wings. The wing ends are also reinforced, so that only one extending landing gear leg (located under the main power converter) is necessary to land the craft and balance it perfectly on flat surfaces.
The construction of the ship itself is quite unique, employing multiple advanced building techniques. Not only that, but the wings rotate with perfect friction, and the cockpit opens to seat a minifigure at the controls.
This was one of Brickster_Tim’s LEGO Ideas projects, first released Summer 2016. While it never received much support, it is still worth posting here.

Also known as the “Brain Buster”, this machine was created for a 2013 Hero Factory contest. As evil brain-controlled creatures roamed Makuhero City, LEGO fans were called upon to created a viable defense for the heroes. Dissatisfied with the lack of an appearance from Jimi Stringer in the LEGO sets released in the year, Brickster_Tim decided to give him the part he deserved by making him a giant, four-legged machine.

The All-Terrain Ground Assault (ATGA) Crawler was another Star Wars set created for a LEGO contest several years ago. Back in the day, Brickster_Tim put a lot of work into this one. It has slightly poseable, but strong, legs, a giant laser, a spinning turret with firing missiles, a globular prison for captured enemies, and small detachable ships.
“Sorahk was a custom Bionicle I created for a Glatorian Series contest back in 2008. It combines parts from multiple Bionicle series: the Matoran blue body part, the Phantoka torso, the Skrall shield and Thorax launcher from the Glatorian series, the blue and orange Bohrok eye pieces (and blue Bohrok weapon), the Toa Inika Hahli arms and legs, and the Toa Mahri Nuparu shield with a Toa Mahri Matoro mask.” – Brickster_Tim
