The ByeByeBye Squad is a trio of mechanical women ready to conquer whatever stands in their way. This Lego MOC is created by Letranger Absurde as a part of the Decisive Action 4: Hammer to Fall group (A collection of Lego stuff that is building a fictional world). These three Minifigures have given up their bodies for new power armor. These type of robots always prove to be extremely creative, and very fragile. Starting on the left there is blonDIE, Shearleader, and dR3d. Each character has their own specialty. BlonDIE is outfitted in an urban mech which features a pneumatic hammer, and laser eyes. Shearleader has chosen the arctic armor, which comes with duel chainsaws and shoulder mounted cannons. While dR3d is wearing a volcano suit that comes equipped with a mechanical machete. You do not want to come across them without some backup.
This Lego Chainsaw, called the “Cutting Edge” is created by Bryce Dempsey. This is a great tool for cutting down Lego Trees, and even the Lego Undead. Built as an entry into an Iron Builder challenge. The specific challenge involved using the Minifigure stud shooter in unique ways. You can find a whole lot of them here being used as the chainsaw chain, in the handle, and as the grip on the starter rope / cord. Another really interesting part usage in this Lego Chainsaw is in the orange body. There is a 6×6 orange cockpit in there. So make sure to grab a pair of safety glasses, some ear protection, and gloves. It is time to get to work.
Ice Planet is one of the odd 1990’s space themes. It first showed up in 1993, and its cool blue and orange color palette was a huge change when compared to the previous space theme, Space Police II. Commander Cold and his research team had to withstand the hostile planet of Krysto. Equipped with trans-orange chainsaws, the most bad ass weapon Lego has ever molded, the team set out to science.
Even though Ice Planet only lasted one year it managed to make a huge impression on many people. Mr–Jack recently created this amazing painting, inspired by this cool Lego theme. The giant research vehicle in the background is impressive.
One Lego theme that you don’t see very often is the Ice Planet 2002 theme. This was the Lego Space theme from 1993 through 1994. It had a heavy emphasis on blue and white bricks. The theme contained a lot of white haired minifigures and the coolest (pun!) accessory ever made: the transparent orange chainsaw (6117). The High Velocity Ice Cutting Speeder (HiVICS), by A Plastic Infinity, is a cool MOC based on Ice Planet. This is a compact speeder in the SNOT style, with come really inventive use of Lego parts. For instance, the blue baseball cap and the Bionicle (?) pieces. The Lego hoses also lend a sleekness to the speeder that works well.
A Plastic Infinity used one customized Lego piece in this built. If you can spot it, make sure to go over to the Flickr page and let them know!
