Could be interesting.  It's nice that it's not another licensed property.

My bro will get a kick.

/any Farkers have a lead on a good "steampunk angel"? Bro wants that as a tattoo, but he says he can't find a good pic with the right style of wings. He's in the military, so we're trying to treat him when he comes home.

Somebody at Lego deserves a bonus. My daughter and I have fun w/ the Lego Friends sets, I enjoy the Lego Architecture sets, and now it looks like they're going to get more of my money.

Huh? But it's steampunk!! It's totally. . .

Oh. . . hehehe. . . No, I don't think he's planning on using this as bait for a Sandusky-style encounter.

What he meant to say was, "paf, paf, paf, paf."  Which is Algonquin for 'The Good Blocks'.

As awesome as this sounds, seeing it first promoted on io9 cheapens it tremendously, just rips its cred away.

really depends on what style of wings. did he ever go into a description of what he's looking for?

Yeah. The wings are supposed to be like steampunk pipes and gears, not like in the above pic with the feathers. Other than that, "It just has to grab me." Maybe something like an Icarus-type interpretation?

I kinda know what he's going for, but would play hell trying to describe it. He works as a machinist's mate in the belly of an aircraft carrier (he's a nuke), if that helps at all.

Thanks, btw.

It's not being "promoted" there. The guy just saw the thing and reported on it.

What they need to do is spend some time on a GIS looking for large images of steampunk angel tattoo designs.

Google will deliver

Steampunk anime angel? Oh crap, I think my bro would cream his pants.

Steampunk is still around?
 
2013-05-09 01:12:04 AM  
So... they're just rebranding the older technic sets and painting them bronze?

/gears, pulleys and clockwork are steampunk, right?

Yes, but it was meant sarcastically; it was usually said when you have two blocks stuck together and you can't pry them apart.

Master Builder Academy is not regular off the shelf sets.  This is not a "Steampunk line".
 
2013-05-09 02:11:30 AM  
It's weird how everything you ever wanted as a ten-year-old is expensive-but-affordable in your late twenties.

If they develop genetically-engineered kittens with wings, I am totally buying one.

When did LEGOs get so complicated?
 
2013-05-09 09:01:12 AM  
Enough with the farking steampunk already. Slapping some gears and brass bits onto top hats and corsets does not make you pretty, hip, or edgy. As a style, it's contrived and trite.  It's accoutrement in place of personality, as discussed in the recent handlebar mustache thread.

Seriously, steampunkers...farkin' quit it.

Just pay an artist to design it, perhaps someone on Deviantart who does good steampunk.  It won't be cheap if they're good, but you'll get exactly what you want and hey, it's for a really special occasion, right?

Ohh you mean the whole movement is style over substance, exactly like cyberpunk. So, in other words steampunkers are doing it right. Unless of course you never understood that cyberpunk, which is what steampunk is imitating only with brass and gears,  was not about the tech, evil corporations, or dystopic future, but about chrome over meat, glitz and glam over substance.

No it was when they introduced Technic. Working electric trains, motorized cars, cranes, backhoes, dump trucks etc.. all were complicated models to build.

cool.
