Jetboy is an AFOL, crazy builder, proud member of Zbudujmy.to, where he used to be LAN Ambassador for many years. When he does not use his brick superpowers he works as game developer, plays with yoyo, and dive, he has also been known for his demo-scene involvements. There is more to it, but let's cut the crap already ;)

Nikola Tesla and one of his Machines

Nikola Tesla

Here is my newest MOC showing Nikola Tesla and one of his machines. In fact this is not Tesla’s machine but magnetic bearing inspired by works of Yoshihito Isogawa, and his playing with non Lego neodymium magnets.

Beware those magnets are not safe for kids, and can be lethal if swallowed. If you swallow two of them and they snap through your internal organs they can cause perforation and serious injuries.

Below is video showing how it works, but if you want to see it in person, join me in Skaerbaek 2017 where this MOC will be presented.

LEGO House

LEGO House will open officially on 28th of september, but Sariel was able to take a sneak peek already.  Lego House is home of a brick and you can find there all things connected with LEGO past, present and future. There is even a section showcasing MOCs built from fans from all over the world.  I’m proud to have my models there too (although not all of them are there yet), and my Zbudujmy’to colleague Jarek Książczyk better known as Jerac has his models displayed there too.

I will be there setting up the rest of my mocs there and then visit it on AFOL opening on 22nd. I will make my own video when i get back from the trip.

 

LEGO Festival – Blue City Warsaw / Poland

My dear friend Dominik, and Zbudujmy.to colleague, has just published some impressions from LEGO Festival, that is held in Blue City shopping mall in Warsaw / Poland.

The event will take three weeks,  and is organized by LEGO Poland. Except usual activities, there are lego sculptures from Dirk Denoyelle, and also some dioramas Zbudujmy.to members build for LEGO Poland.


Please visit Dominik’s blog – Bricks’s Treasure where he shares his passion for LEGO Bricks and stop motion film-making.

How do we transport our models?

How do we transport our models? Is the question we often hear on our exhibitions. Today i have 2 videos showing hour our models are transported:

If you wonder, the boxes are made out of 5 layer cardboard in a  international standard FEFCO301. We ordered them here: http://www.cart-pack.pl/fefco.html but i would recommend finding local producer, as the boxes have to be sent folded, and that would be quite expensive.

As you see on video we have one of the sides unstapled so you can easily open it and remove the model. Cover is fully stapled.

If you have any more questions, please leave them in the comments, either here or on facebook.

Third 2016 LEGO Ideas review results!

So we now have long awaited third 2016 lego ideas review results!

Here is list of competing projects and results:

A big congratulations to JakeSadovich77 on becoming the next official LEGO Ideas fan designer!

As an avid LEGO builder, Jacob Sadovich was inspired to create his LEGO Ship in a Bottle, The Flaship Leviathan, following a real-life ship in a bottle that he had built just a few years ago.

There was also one more project selected to be made Lego Ideas set:

Voltron – Defender of the Universe

A big congratulations to len_d69 on becoming the next official LEGO Ideas fan designer!

Leandro’s passion for Voltron started at a very young age when his parents bought him a Voltron toy. From that moment on Leandro was hooked. Building with LEGO bricks allowed Leandro to celebrate his passion for Voltron – Defender of the Universe even more.

And next time one of the following sets will be made official LEGO Set.

What do YOU think it will be?

Do you like GBC?

Do you like GBC? Who does not?

This time we have a GBC track from LUGPol’s exhibition in Chojnice 2017. What is interesting is that most if not all of those modules are completely custom and never seen in other setups. The AT-AT factory is one of the ones that shine especially bright.

Authors of this GBC loop are are:

Jan Biela Abreu ‘Jahoo’
Grzegorz Kurkowski ‘Noniusz’
Łukasz Alagierski ‘Jarema’
Krystian Kubrak ‘Kubrick’

Crazy Builders new logo animation.

I have built this logo some time ago with a little help of my rabbit Krusia. Now, thanks to Kamil Wolnikowski, also known as Jammer on C64 demo-scene, we have it sound enhanced! Thank you Kamil!

This logo will be used on youtube channel and all upcoming videos that were waiting to be published until it’s ready 😉 Tune in as they are coming soon.

Your new LEGO Bricks lighting system!

No it is not made by LEGO. It is made by i-brix debuting on kickstarter, but it is what you always dreamed about. No batteries, no wires, great lights size of 1×1 brick! It powers the lights virelessly which allows great freedom of building. All you have to do is keep the lights not higher than 20 cm (8inches) over the power plate that comes in 2 sizes 16×16 and 33×32 studs.

Here is review of early prototype by Jangbrix:

Or go to i-brix kickstarter page to back it up. I already did.
