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?

LUGPol’s LEGOWISKO 2016 – video

Łódź is only about 2 hours away from Warsaw by train or car. It would be not wise to miss opportunity to visit AFOLs exhibition so close. Some friends, who are also members of LUGPol were driving there already to exhibit, so i got a lift (thank you BHs). It was not the biggest of their shows, but models presented were very nice, and atmosphere on the event was very welcoming and friendly.

So without too much rumbling, enjoy video from event:

There is also 3D version if you have 3d hardware,  be it 3d googles, 3dTV or just plain anaglyph glasses. You can choose your option in the player if you follow this link.

And if you happen to have Nintendo 3DS, here is a file you can put on your device and see it on your 3DS. Right click on the link, select save, then copy it to your media folder on your Nintendo SD card. After you put the card back in your Niny, you can find GBC video in your camera app under view photos.

I would also want to thank all the exhibitors for presenting such a great set of MOCs, and a friendly atmosphere.

GBC LEGOWISKO ŁÓDŹ 2016

There was small GBC circuit at the LUGPol’s event last week. It was built by Jahoo, Maras and Solic.  It looked like that:

I also have 3d version of it under this link. It requires some 3d hardware to watch, be it 3d googles, 3dTV or just plain anaglyph glasses. You can choose your option in the player.

And if you happen to have Nintendo 3DS, here is a file you can put on your device and see it on your 3DS. Right click on the link, select save, then copy it to your media folder on your Nintendo SD card. After you put the card back in your Niny, you can find GBC video in your camera app under view photos.

Legowisko 2016 – LUGPol expo in ŁÓDŹ – photos

Last week i visited LUGPol’s exhibition in Łódzki Dom Kultury, in Łódź/Poland. The event was held in 2 medium halls where one of them was dedicated to MOC exhibition, and another one to kids play area, Brickwars and Mindstorms.

The event spanned entire weekend, but i only was there for the Saturday.  Due to the Hot Sunny Weather attendance was a little bit low, but i heard it got better on Sunday which was colder and rainy. But the atmosphere inside was very friendly all the time. I was not the only visitor from another LUG there, except me there was also Mario from Brazil, and we were both taken care about like we were family members.

Łódź is known as a polish capital of animation, so there had to be some character known from Polish cartoons:

LUGPol has very strong Technic section, and they were racing with their truck all day. It was even possible to take part in the races and win prizes if you were just usual visitor.

There were also shows of Truck Trials, and a small GBC – i will post video of that later this week.

One of the highligts was Modular City Project. Most of the buildings were made especially for that occasion and some were really amazing (2 of them were even featured here). But for me the best part was to meet other builders and talk to the old and new friends.

Follow to Flickr for more photos from event.

 

School of Dance Modular Style

Krzysztof Pusz aka Servator moderator from LUGPol has tried his strengths in modular building for the first time. The results are amazing.  Someone might argue that the floors are too high for modular building, but someone else might argue that they are too low in regular modulars. Decorations on the outside are just perfect, enough to make facade interesting but not cluttered. The real treats are hiding inside.

Dance School

There is dancing room with piano, balet room and a place to train break dance. The place even has some space for wheelchair dancing! There is also some football player sleeping on money at the roof. If i know Krzysztof that would be Robert Lewandowski.

Some of the girls want to bring some colors to the school painting it pink and clothing one of the statues in their own pink skirt.

0.1

This modular was built for LUGPol’s event in Łódź that will be held this weekend, but has already been presented on LUGPol, Zbudujmy.to and Eurobricks where you can read some more on this moc.

 

LEGOWISKO ŁÓDŹ 2016

What is the better way to invite fellow AFOLs to your event than by making MOC? I do not know better, as did Krzysztof Pusz  of LUGPol who built this inviting scene.

The event will take place in:
Łódzki Dom Kultury
ul. Traugutta 18
ŁÓDŹ
POLAND

The date is 2-3.07.2016, that is next weekend. You can find more info on LUGPol’s website if you are interested to go.

We will be there on Saturday as regular visitors, and will be capturing some video footage and photos, so subscribe or follow us on facebook not to miss the report.

A Few Adventures of Sparrow Tweet

“A Few Adventures of Sparrow Tweet” (Przygód kilka wróbla Ćwirka) is a Polish cartoon from the 80’s from Se-Ma-For studio, more well known for it’s Flappy Bear (Bear Flappy Ear) stop motion animation. Animation itself was mediocre, but wonderful narration of Jan Kobuszewski was making up for it. That however was lost in translation and the series never was very popular outside Poland.

This beautiful creation of Sparrow Tweet, and his friend Klekot* in under who’s nest Tweet was living was brought to you by BHs, who built it for LUGPol‘s exhibition in Łódz Poland. That is where Se-Ma-For studio was located, hence the “Polish Cartoons” theme of the show.

Modular Hospital by Pakita

Modulars are very popular LEGO serie, no wonder AFOLs make their own additions to the serie. Take look at this beautiful hospital build by LUGPol’s Pakita. That is her first take at modular, so i wonder what else she could build if she start with such a beauty.

The build includes registration and small storeroom, first floor has an operation room and intensive care section, second floor has maternity ward, head offices and a toilet. Minifigs can move around thanks to an elevator, that actually works.
