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.

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.

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!

ETNAK class frigate

We were talking about unusual shapes made with bricks. This spaceship by Flavio is a perfect example. There are not many straight angles in this model. The use of white stripes is adding to the look of the model. It is also worth noticing how those 2 small stickers are contributing a lot to make the general impression. I have to rethink my “no stickers policy”.

Oh, and i want to remind you that it’s shiptember now! The month where you build 100 stud long spaceships. This one is a little to small, but all over flicker you can see photos of people building their shiptember ships.  I would build mine too, but september is not the best time for me, real life bites, and i’m not even able to repost cool build every day, not to mention writing and building something original myself. But it will get better. I hope 🙂

Classic Space Pacman

Pacman is even more classic in games than Classic Space is classic in LEGO bricks. How classic is PacMan in Classic Space version? I do not know! Mind blown!

This crazy version of PacMan was built by David Roberts. The build is really nice, but i guess it would be possible to make PacMan ship even rounder. Then it is a spaceship, a little bit of edge here and there seems pretty ok.

On a side note, can we expect PacMan minifig from LEGO? Or other game characters? But we can for sure count on the fans in that matter.
