Here is another entry for Ideas’s LEGO Moments in Space contest. This one depicts first step of the moon. If you want to have it as gift with purchase set on Shop@Home, please vote for it here.
Funny story is, when i started building it got a little bit carried away. The number of elements is right, as both versions have about 300 of them, but the size is 2 times too big 🙂
I like the look of it a lot, but the contest version is the small one.

This is my entry into LEGO Moments in Space contest on IDEAS.
If you like it, please vote and it may become Gift with Purchase Set available at Shop@Home. The set has 2 modes – first is the rocket standing on a platform that can be great ornament on any shelf, second is the rocket in the very moment of start, which looks even greater.
Here is a closer look:
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 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.
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:
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.
Here is my version of famous Eiffel Tower. Unlike Palace of Culture, i have never seen it with my own eyes, so i was building entirely using photos and blueprints as a reference. It is more like artistic impression of the Tower, then the exact model, but taking in consideration that this shape is not very brick friendly, i’m pretty happy with the end result. There is a little story behind it too, so “stay away and listen”. Continue reading Eiffel Tower
This is time-lapse video of me and Krusia, my girlfriend’s plush duplo rabbit building Palace of Culture and Science. This is not the first time Krusia helps me build, but it has never been shown to public how do we build a model from start to finish.
Some might wonder why we are building another version of famous Warsaw’s landmark. This time we were involved in another project by LEGO Poland. There were 17 landmarks to be built by people involved, i have chosen something else, but as nobody wanted to build PoCaS and i was already familiar with the geometry, i ended up building this version. I’m not sure how much info i can share now, so i will not say much more.
As you can see this MOC is much less detailed, but that was the idea of the project to build a little bit smaller and simpler. Proportions are also skewed a bit like in my previous build, but i’m more perception builder than the robot architect. The general look and feel of the object build is much more important to me than accuracy.
This was also an experiment to try to mix time-lapse with stop motion animation. I’m pretty pleased with results, are you? Would you like to see more videos like that? If yes, subscribe, comment and share.
