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.

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?

Vampire State Building

Vampire State Building is a skyscraper i  built for another LEGO Poland event. This is pretty simple, but the  goal was to build skyscraper that would  be easy to transport and  children-proof . If it was not for that i would go more crazy with ornaments and  fancy wall shapes.

If you look closely , you will find 2  lines where bricks are not fit together – that’s because i needed to get out of my apartment split into 3 pieces , after photo session.

Krusia, my faithful helper rabbit builder helped me putting all those  bricks together. It took us about a week, and about 16K bricks. There will be  time-wrapped  video of us building it soon, but for now take a look at some more photos:

Lego Tower… with drawers!

Lego Tower build by Nico Mailhot presented by Beyond the Brick’s Matthew Kay is definitely crazy enough to be shown here.

5 feet 8 inches (almost 173cm) has removable drawer-like floors that are full of life. It is innovative approach to building brick skyscrapers, and very inspiring.

Tan’thu the ancient entity

Tan'thu the ancient entity

Tan’thu was built by Micah Beideman with some help of his friends. This build proves that tires are one of the best pieces to create organic shapes  when you turn them inside-out. Also if you wonder what is mouth piece built with, it is bottom jaw from Ninjago  dragon. Pretty clever piece use.

Is it possible that we have the MOC of they year in the very beginning of January? Either way, if this year starts with such masterpiece, i’m looking forward what the rest of the year will bring.

Golem

There is interesting contest going on in Poaland. Lugpol’s and Zbudujmy.to user, Johan is running his private contest. There will be many stages each being separate task. For starters we were asked to build figurine in minifig scale, without using minifig parts – well, legs, torsos and heads are forbidden.

Golem is my entry.  If you wonder – it’s not the Golem that is preventing me from updating this blog in timely manners. I hope i will be back next month with some changes, and daily updates.

Sword Class spaceship

Michał Kaźmierczak aka Migalart does it again. Another of his creation is mind blowing. This space ship is huge and very detailed. Use of fluorescent paint adds to the look by making series of windows glowing. The ship is built as a prop for his space comic, but this project, even with Michał’s dedication will probably take several years. I just can’t wait!
