The "Let's Build Overlord Makuta" Topic

The One They used wasnt pac man shaped, and it only made a little tiny crease.

Oh…I feel kind of silly now. :stuck_out_tongue:
Thanks for the confirmation, I’ll make the necessary changes to the LDD file and pieces list.
Edited list.

the insturctions are down, can you fix them?

They are not down, you just need to copy and past the link into you’re search bar.

Instructions link doesn’t work for me either after copying and pasting into the search bar.

Do we know anyone that is capable of custom molding these pieces, so we can get them in these colors?


I know the trans. purple piece exists but there are way to few of them on the market.

OK. Tutorial for instructions:

Download the LDD file from @RAKRONDEWL LDD link (if you don’t have LDD get it, if you can’t get it sorry) than watch this video:

NOTE: THAT IS NOT ME IN THE VIDEO I JUST GOT THE VIDEO OFF A YOUTUBE SEARCH.

This is a little off topic but: I am watching your video and just paused it to tell you you can turn of the sound affects of selecting bricks in the preferences. You can also use LDD Extended to have more pieces (plus each piece is only displayed once) and color them with the paint bucket. Apologies if you already knew this information.

Edit: you can also just go to the “file” tab and click “Export BOM” and it will make a document (excel spreadsheet?) with just the pieces. This is how I made the parts list.

When did makuta overlord have a trans hed?

In the contest video and first album of photos.

No apologies needed!

I still believe the “Export BOM” fuction to be quicker though, but both ways work.

It might just be the picture but the onua chest sticker looks more bluish than purple.

I was gonna say:

(Not my image)

Not only that, but the ‘veiny’ lines in the sticker are an aqua or something. Also, it lacks the extra gold on Onua’s chest piece

These will still have to be scaled before printing.
Chest print

Here are all the stickers needed from Black Panther Pursuit set. I added cut lines but not at the angles used on the Overlord model (I am not sure what angle they cut it to).


Staff sticker is approximately 2.25 inches in diameter.

Right side chest print is approximately 1.3125 x 1.3125 inches.

Left side chest print is approximately 1.3125 x 1.3125 inches.

BPP sticker A is approximately 0.5625 x 1.1875 inches.

BPP sticker B is approximately 0.5625 x 1.1875 inches.

BPP sticker C is approximately 0.5625 x 1.1875 inches.

BPP sticker D is approximately 0.5625 x 1.1875 inches.

Hmmm, I’m not sure how to scale it the right way.

This may help, but I am not sure because I don’t know the actual measurement of the sticker off hand. Edit: I added some measurements to the “stickers” so you and everyone else can try the way shown in the link if you like.

I’ll see if can figure anything out.
Scaling down: doesn’t work well

Cool.

Thanks, but if all your stickers are to scale they may be more useful right now as I haven’t quite figured out how to do that yet. I don’t mean to steal your thunder and hope there isn’t any hard feelings.
