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?

Alternative models of 911720 SW Ghost



LUGPol is just running a contest  where you need to make  alternative models of  911720 SW Ghost  foilpack.  I prepared a few ideas.

Minifg’s Gym

I wanted to create something not obvious, so my first choice was a gym. Is that obvious? Not for me, as i cannot recall when i was last at the gym…

From left to right: drink water tank/resting place, squeezing bench, barbells stand, stepper bench.

Unused elements: 0

Dragster

Almost any set with wheels can be turned into Dragster. This one does not have wheels per se, but as you see can be turned into a dragster anyway.

Unused elements: 2

 

 

Starfleet

If you can make a dragster out of the set, you can turn it into a spaceship, if you cannot make a dragster, then you can make it into a spaceship, or a fleet of.

Unused elements: 0 (well, one is unattached and is used only to level one of the ships)

 

Nexus and his dog

“Nexus and his dog” used to be a theme of one of the old contest. Thos time Nexus is quite robotic and the dog resembles more a turkey then the dog.  Well, at least all parts are used 🙂

Unused  elements: 0

look from behind:

 

Race

Snail vs Turtle race has to be fierce! Either way we have something for animal lovers.

Unused elements: 14 (shame on me!)

That was  only a warm-up.  We only can put one build into the contest, so here is my entry. Wish me luck!

Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, you are my only hope!

I’m happy i kept the SW theme here.

Unused elements: 12 (quite a few, but the result was worth it, and it was no requirement, but i always challenge myself to try to use all elements)

Wish me luck!  And write what else would you like me to build out of this set?

Ingenious Dwarves and their Magnificent Creations

Another entry for Summer Joust Contest 2016. This time BHs, Johan and Goldsun of Zbudujmy.to created their contest entries, losely based on a Tolkien poem.

Far over the Misty Mountains cold (Johan)
To dungeons deep and caverns old (BHs)
We must away ere break of day,
To claim our long-forgotten gold.(Goldsun)

“The Misty Mountains”, autor: J.R.R.Tolkien

Using Tolkien here is a little bit strech as there were no airborn dragon hunters, nor the mechs, and Dwemerium is part of Elder Scrolls saga, but if you take this away, those works are quite nice. Take a look at the pictures:

Dragon Hunt by Johan

Dwemerium by BHs.

Steam Princess and the Seven Dwarves by Goldsun

If you click on the photos you should be taken to the appropriate flickr albums. And i keep my fingers crossed for this Team too.

 

Faun Valley – Summer Joust 2016 Contest entry from Zbudujmy.to

Just a few days ago submission deadline for Summer Joust 2016 Contest has passed.  One of the entries from Zbudujmy.to was Faun Valley project built by Dzidek, Filozof and Toltomeja

The Fauns are a small community leading its peaceful life close to the nature. They are known for their love for apples. As a community they love the red apples the most. But the green ones are also desired as they are used for making the greatest cider in all the lands known.

 

The green apples are transported to places like this where they are manufactured by Fauns into cider. Fauns love their work, milling and pressing the apples, although it is not easy. The drink is then distributed among the folk of Faun Valley.

 

Every year the Fauns gather at the Shrine to thank Nature for the treasures it has given them. Among them, the sweet red apples that the Valley is famous for.

I keep my fingers crossed for the guys, and i wish them luck, as competition is strong.
