See my comment in the post that's in the mySoaker forum thread. I like the new image, it's done very cleanly. Good job!

My eyes must be playing tricks on me. I guess they already know that the Defender is red, so the combo of "red" and the green shade on the soaker's main body looks weird...I think I'm freaking out.

Huh, where did my first comment here go?
Anyway, sweet job on the Defender, I especially like how you got the coloring to match.
Splinter Cell is a pretty good game too, not much replay value, but can be devilishly tricky to get through the first time on the hardest setting. And I find it lots of fun to be silently dispatching, tricking or dodging enemy after enemy. Slinking through the shadows and striking in silence.

Terrifying, but oddly refreshing.

Of course, since Grendel's Mother is apparently a water-demon, a soaker may not have been Beowulf's best choice. :goofy:

Agreed.
In any form, one would need more than a soaker to be defended from Angelina Jolie..

This is a pic I made a couple years ago to put on my birthday invitations; it combines my two biggest hobbies Water Warfare and LEGOs.
The guy on the left is me with my Helix and the guy on the right is my friend Sam with my CPS 3200, there is also a sniper in a tree house in the background. I'm not good at picture editing so just imagine water from the CPS 3200 soaking me. :soaked: :cps3000:

@scottthewaterwarrior: That's AWESOME! Don't think I've ever seen a Lego-based-water fight before (even though there have been some Lego-branded actual water guns). More please if you will! Would love to see a whole bunch of there if you're willing!

^ What iSoaker said. I want to try making some lego water guns now.

That CPS 3200 is perfect.

I couldn't get the image uploader to work for some reason, but here is a link to another LEGO water gun battle:
LEGO Water Gun Battle 2, the Ambush:

http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/302420

For this one I have a lot more custom guns and better scenery. I have a picture of all the guns as well.

Those guns are sick, especially the vin and FF.


Quoting Josh Guilbert Well you could make a military parody instead of real guns they use squirt guns LOL
My actual water gun battles are much like real wars. They are long, drawn out affairs that can last for hours. Some smaller ones we just blast around the yard, but most of the time we are in a large wooded area, with lots of cover. One battle we searched for an our before we even made contact with the other team. It's basically a military exercise done with water guns. Here is a video of one of the battle at an event I attended this summer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HvEkgnGV3I Welcome to hard core water warfare.

Amen.

I love seeing water blasters and water war fights recreated in Lego! Great stuff!

Anyone up for trying to make a more life-sized water blaster replica out of Lego? Bonus points if someone actually manages to make a functional blaster. :goofy:

That was actually a goal of mine, though I have seen one that was not a model, and simply used the old pneumatics sets.
