While I didn't actually pick up a small cup of parts, the parts and quantities should fit in a single small cup.
Total pictured parts count: 320, 100, 100

That round body core is really something, darksyntax!

Also, creative way of pulling off some legs out of that parts selection!

Thanks, Vitor!

Continuing to play with the parts list to find a viable humanoid frame, I pulled together the olive green one. The available parts allow this basic frame to be re-colored into 4 different company liveries. The stations from the assault pods can be easily re-colored to match; the flags aren't great, but they are serviceable as game pieces. The frames vary from 53-64pcs each. I didn't blow out systems, but they shouldn't be too hard using the assault pods as an example.

It never ceases to amaze me how you can pull of a Chub equivalent out of pretty much everything!

Waist up those look honestly just as good as a standard Chub, if not better. The static hips are the only element that really hints the challenge, but even them look very finished and usable.

Thanks, but certainly not better than a Chub... A humanoid frame is really just a few 90degree SNOT connections; the trick is finding how to make those connections with the parts at hand. Maybe I'll make a little tutorial for the Toolbox sometime.

Continuing to play with the parts list. This was my 7th iteration of trying to use the big bar piece with the tileclips for a quad with angled legs. Base frame is 48pcs. Almost exactly the same size as a Scrambler.

Amazing, amazing, amazing. Once again you've shown us that any new player with zero Legos to start with can actually get a company going for about $10. I've got a thing for antennas so my favorite of your stations is the one in the middle, the antenna tower (if it's an antenna tower). But I certainly do appreciate that turret as well.
