    Sorry, at this point I don't have a parts list. It might not look like, but that is even harder to make than the instructions set itself.

    If you check the description of this picture, you'll notice that instructions are also available on Brickshelf, all you have to do is follow the link.

    thanks, Tiler.

    I think it is out of my league (I am a truly amateur here), but is definitely in my wish list. I will be "studying" and “planning" until to know how make one, you can bet.

    I ordered some of the older pieces off BL earlier this week and they came today! I just started on mine. Thanks for the instructions!

    do u have the part list? mind sharing?

  5. TanookiTail26 32 months ago | reply

    No sorry. It's pretty easy to tell what parts you'll need from his instructions though.

    I've just found this MOC; incredible. I'll be looking to build it later this year hopefully.

    If anyone has the time and is feeling especially generous, could they make available their parts list somehow? It seems many people'll'd benefit (especially the amateurs like myself ;) There are some parts which I've never seen before!

    And to the builder, thanks for taking the time to dismantle and shoot the instructions!

    For those interested, I've updated the Building Instructions folder on Brickshelf with Parts List / Inventory for both black and camo versions of the Tumbler.

    I've carefully checked every piece but since each version has over 200 parts, it's possible that I might have missed a thing or two. So if you find errors, please let me know so I can correct them.

    Well, I hope everyone is satisfied now :P

    you're amazing! thank you for sharing both the instructions and parts list with everyone!

    Perfect! Although I spent some hours trying to work everything out, and creating a Wanted List on BL. I can now go through and check my novice Lego part identifying skillz (or lack thereof).

    I don't know the timing gear. where is it from?

  13. maxamaral 30 months ago | reply


    in you parts list for the Cameo version, piece 48336 black appears twice - quantities 2 and 4.
    So, is it 6 black pieces or 2 in one color, 4 in other?

  14. maxamaral 30 months ago | reply

    camo, not cameo...

  15. maxamaral 30 months ago | reply

    correct me if I am wrong but, reviewing the instructions, seems to me that we have in the camo version 2 48336 black and 2 48336 tan. There is a "bug" in the parts list, putting 4 blackp pieces without necessity.

    Wow, thank you very much for this! I, too, attempted to create a tumbler based on Zeto Vince's design, but it ended up being longer and less like a tumbler, and not at all as elegant as your solution. I really look forward to completing and fiddling with this! Some of those pieces are rare though, and will probably pose a problem...
