Title: Arcade Machine (based on 71235 Midway Arcade Defender)
Post by: conor on March 01, 2019, 07:44 am
Playing around with Stud.io and did this modification (https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-22452/cnrnln/71235-1-midway-arcadetm-level-pack-defender-mod/#comments) of the arcade machine from the Dimensions Midway Arcade pack.

I made the controls a little too high for a minifig, so may stick a small platform in front of it, rather than reduce the height. Bought some of the printed pieces this week, so will make it for real now.

Awesome little MOC. Huge improvement on the set version. Nice use of those new corner tiles. All round it looks much neater and more like the real thing. Good job!

The quikimart simpsons  had 2 arcade games. Can't remember if they had joystick then again it was a 2nd hand rebuild with lots of bits missing

Great little creation. Did you get round to building it?

@Studnik

I did. Definitely needs some tweaks, particularly the height of the controls. I like the proportions of it, but it's one or two plates too high for a minifig. I'm going to re-adjust the bottom of it.

Wherever it's going build an indent into the floor, or get woodys legs or go all Lord Business, i think it's fine as it is though

I do my best to “go all Lord Business” on most things in life.
