T.A.C Chapter 1

This is an intro chapter to T.A.C. written by a friend.  There will be a Lego version coming soon! 

Chapter 1

Two friends were rushing down a hall dodging bullets from an enemy, One of them a little flustered on how they got there. First off why do you have to fall for the obvious trap?! He thought. Its kinda true real friends always "bud heads". Finally the exit they never thought would come finally was here. But again the klutz slips. And to make things worse a detonator slips out of his tattered vest. Even more chaos happens as they just happened to be in a highly sensitive avalanche zone. Now very flustered the man finds their ship in just the nick of time! He pushes the klutz on and grabs the wheel.

Mini Monday mini city

This is our miniature LEGO city that we made. It has 26 buildings including a lighthouse. 
This is the light house. 
The curvy building that you see in the background was probably my favorite building that I built. 
The  big red building is the center of the city.
The tan building is the Capitol of the city. 
The two black/gray buildings bordering the Capitol are some government buildings. 
This photo shows the whole city except for the lighthouse. We will be posting a tutorial on how to build mini LEGO buildings. Thanks for reading!

One brick bro down

On Thursday, August 15, 2013, Atticus fractured his wrist. He now has a cast and a sling. The cast (in the photo) is made out of clay. Atticus is doing really good now but can't do much. We have been playing a lot of Lego and experimenting with stop-motions.

The attack of West Point docks

  This is a scene of a Zorrian special forces squad (the Zorrians are the bad guys, their goal is to take over all of the galaxy and to defeat T.A.C.) ambushing the West Point docks on the planet of Quep. They are attacking the docks because the planet of Quep is aligned with T.A.C. They are poisoning the water with highly toxic  chemicals. Their goal is to poison the water so that all of the fish will die and that the inhabitants of the city bordering the ocean will have to deal with the smell of the dead fish. They also are poisoning the water because Quep filters the ocean water into drinking water. The chemical the zorrians are using will make the water un-filterable, because the chemical once it is put in water will disintegrate the components that they use to filter the water. T.A.C. also would like to mine the planet. The Zorrians want Quep for their own. The invasion has started!

But there is still hope for the people of Quep... The saving of Quep! Coming soon!

T.A.C. U.M.R.C

This is a squad of U.M.R.C troopers aka Underwater Mining and Research Crew. The purpose of U.M.R.C is mining and researching minerals that power vehicles, homes, laboratories, etc. The only place you can find these minerals is on water worlds.
This is a U.M.R.C trooper that has a mechanical mineral grabber, other tools are heavy hand drills, heavy hand saws, and grabbers. It is very dark underwater so all of the tools and equipment have lights on them. The breathing system that U.M.R.C uses filters water and transfer it into air for the troopers to use, so it pretty much lasts forever. The suits that they use are heated, cooled, fire resistant, and -1000 degrees Fahrenheit resistant. Most of the time it is very cold where the troopers work but some times there is lava or extreme heat gas underwater.
This is a miner drone that helps mine and collect the minerals. U.M.R.C has thousands of these, these drones are an essential part in the mining of the minerals, because they are equipped with scanners that detect where the largest deposit of minerals is.
Thanks for reading!

Baby Bunnies

Our Baby Bunnies were born on July 11th. Fuzz delived six but one died. In the litter there is 1 black, 4 tan. They are really rascally. We had one get out of the nest so we moved them to the cage we had open. When we were playing with them the same bunny that got out of the nest got out of the play pen that we made. When they had fur we started naming them the names are from the movie The Hobbit. The black one is Thorin, the tan are Bilbo, Bombur, Balin and Dwalin. They love to eat the plant plantain.
